This is Good on your view? "25% return on Woodford Scoop wells".
The following is back of envelop. Well returns are based on incremental economics. Well economics must cover all fixed and semi fixed costs in the company. Their weighted cost of capital must be around 12% to 14%. Their overhead and other fixed administrative costs including cash distributions and interest costs not included in incremental economics must be around 9% to 11%. Their G&G costs not included in development well economics must be 4% to 5% which all would extrapolate to 25% to 30% that each well must cover that is not in incremental economics; so again a back of envelop extrapolation is a well return of 25% is breakeven at best to a loss per well. You can test this as they are only covering 65% of their distributions and their distributions are barely covered by their operating cash flow (adj for increase in net accts payables) or breakeven.
