Discretionary cash flow totaled $159.1 million during the first quarter of 2013, the company announced Monday, as compared to $175.1 million during the first quarter of 2012.

First quarter 2013 production was negatively impacted by third party pipeline interruptions in Appalachia, according to the company’s earnings report. First quarter 2013 production mix was 46 percent oil, 6 percent natural gas liquids, and 48 percent natural gas.   

Prices realized during the first quarter of 2013 averaged $109.41 per barrel of oil, $42.49 per barrel of natural gas liquids and $3.17 per Mcf of natural gas. Average realized prices for the first quarter of 2012 were $111.49 per barrel of oil, $67.26 per barrel of NGLs and $2.41 per Mcf of natural gas.

Some of the highlights include:
“We have taken a significant step in our deep water efforts by securing the Diamond Ocean Victory rig and the ENSCO 8500 series rig," David Welch, Stone’s chairman, president and CEO, said in the announcement. “The rigs will be used to drill the Amethyst exploration prospect and the Cardona and Cardona South development wells. If successful, these wells will be produced through the Stone-operated Pompano deep water platform, with Cardona and Cardona South production projected for late 2014 and Amethyst production projected for 2015. In addition to our Stone-operated deep water program, we plan to accelerate our participation in non-operated deep water wells with five-seven exploration prospects being drilled in 2013 and 2014.”
