APA Working To Delineate Its Suriname Prize

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Dave Meats |

APA is an upstream oil and natural gas producer with assets in the U.S. and overseas. The vast majority of its domestic production is derived from the Permian Basin. This was a key growth engine for the company until 2020, when the coronavirus-related collapse in crude prices forced the company to dial back on drilling capital. Since then production has declined due to lower investment, though management now intends to grow its Permian output to prepandemic levels during 2022. It has recently focused on the same reservoirs that competitors are targeting (the Spraberry and Wolfcamp intervals in the Midland Basin and the Bone Spring and Wolfcamp formations in the Delaware). The firm also focuses on its own discovery in the Permian region, the Alpine High play, and in a higher natural gas price environment like we see today this competes effectively for capital. Alpine High wells are characterized by very strong initial production rates but with a much higher gas and natural gas liquids content than we'd expect elsewhere in the Permian.

APA’s stock style is Mid Core.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
