CEO statement

“During the first quarter, Centennial generated strong well results across both the Northern and Southern Delaware Basin while continuing to drive additional operational efficiencies. This execution, coupled with supportive commodity prices, enabled us to achieve record free cash flow and reduce leverage during the quarter,” said Sean R. Smith, Chief Executive Officer. “We are well-positioned to deliver on our key 2022 objectives of generating strong production growth, further strengthening our balance sheet and initiating our share repurchase program.”

“First quarter well performance highlights the quality of Centennial’s portfolio across the Delaware Basin. The higher natural gas and NGL mix on our Texas asset provides enhanced economics at current prices. In New Mexico, our successful execution of larger scale development targeting the Bone Spring Sand interval continues to produce strong returns,” said Smith. “As a result, we expect our average completed well during the quarter to pay-out in approximately four months, assuming strip pricing.”
