Linn Energy Cuts 2015 Capital Budget by 53 Percent
Jan 2 (Reuters) - Linn Energy LLC cut its 2015 capital budget by 53 percent to $730 million, joining other oil and gas producers in reducing expenditure in response to falling oil prices.
Linn also said it had reduced its distribution per unit and the dividend per share for subsidiary LinnCo to $1.25 each from $2.90 on an annualized basis.
Linn said it expected to fund its total 2015 oil and natural gas capital program, along with the distribution, from internally generated cash flow.
