First-quarter 2022 production guidance update
International adjusted production is forecast to be 111 Mboe/d, compared to guidance of 115 Mboe/d, with the difference attributable primarily to the production sharing contract impact of higher oil prices in Egypt. Unplanned maintenance downtime on the Forties Echo platform in the North Sea also impacted oil production by approximately 1,000 barrels of oil per day.
U.S. production for the period is forecast to be 211 Mboe/d, compared to guidance of 212 Mboe/d. The variance is attributable to weather and third-party facility disruptions to gas and NGL volumes, partially offset by better-than-expected oil volumes.
Weighted-average common shares outstanding
During the first-quarter 2022, the company repurchased approximately 7.2 million shares of APA common stock at an average price of $36.07 per share. The estimated weighted-average basic common shares for the period is 346 million, compared with 361 million for the fourth-quarter 2021.
Since Oct. 1, 2021, the company has repurchased 38.4 million shares at an average price of $28.83.
