Chesapeake +2.6% as Q1 profit, revenue surges

Chesapeake Energy (CHK) +2.6% premarket and may be poised to begin trading at a 52-week high after Q1 earnings and revenues skyrocket Y/Y and easily beat Wall Street expectations.

Q1 oil and gas production totaled 675.2K boe/day, up 11% Y/Y after adjusting for asset sales, consisting of 109.5K barrels of oil, 84.2K bbl of natural gas liquids and 2.9B cf of natural gas.

Average price it received for its gas during Q1 was $3.27/M cf, up from $2.13/M cf a year ago.

Raises 2014 total production growth outlook 9%-12%, up from an earlier forecast of 8%-10% growth, to reflect higher than expected natural gas liquids volumes; raises the midpoint of 2014 operating cash flow outlook by 13% to $5.8B-$6B from prior $5.1B-$5.3B due primarily to the increased production outlook.
