W&T Offshore Production Guidance for 2nd Qtr 2007
W&T Offshore, Inc. has updated second quarter and full-year 2007 production guidance. Total production impact for the second quarter 2007 is a reduction of approximately 2 Bcfe.
Tracy W. Krohn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "The Company has had unanticipated production deferral at Mississippi Canyon 718 'Pluto,' other wells produced at rates less than anticipated and we experienced a completion failure at Ewing Bank 989 'Cypress.' Accordingly, the Company is revising both second quarter and full-year guidance downward." Mr. Krohn continued, "Despite the lower production, our realized oil and gas prices were higher than we expected during the second quarter and as a result, the Company will exceed the First Call analysts' consensus estimates, which average $0.44 per share for the second quarter."
