Paul Rady, Chairman and CEO said, "Antero Midstream's 2020 capital budget, which reflects a 52% decrease compared to 2019, highlights the benefit of our just-in-time capital investment philosophy. The integrated planning efforts with Antero Resources and visibility into Antero Resources' development plan allow us to be flexible and continue to focus on capital discipline. The 2020 capital budget is focused primarily in the Marcellus Shale, supporting Antero Resources' liquids-rich development program on Antero Midstream dedicated acreage."

Mr. Rady further added, "Antero Resources today announced that it expects its 2020 development plan to generate 9% year-over-year net production growth. This net production growth supports continued growth in gathering, compression, processing and fractionation volumes for Antero Midstream."

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

The previously announced Simplification Transaction between Antero Midstream GP LP ("AMGP") and Antero Midstream Partners LP ("Antero Midstream Partners") closed on March 12, 2019. GAAP financial results for periods prior to the closing of the Simplification Transaction reflect the financial results of AMGP. The financial and operating results and comparisons for periods prior to the closing of the Simplification Transaction that are discussed in this release are based on the pro forma results of Antero Midstream Corporation as if the transaction had occurred on January 1, 2018. Actual and pro forma financial statements can be found in the back of this press release.

Low pressure gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2019 averaged 2,639 MMcf/d, a 1% increase as compared to the prior year quarter.  Compression volumes for the fourth quarter of 2019 averaged 2,414 MMcf/d, a 9% increase as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.  High pressure gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2019 averaged 2,613 MMcf/d, a 2% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The year-over-year increase in gathering and compression volumes was driven by production growth from Antero Resources in Antero Midstream's area of dedication.  Fresh water delivery volumes averaged 148 MBbl/d during the quarter, a 9% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

Gross processing volumes from the 50/50 processing and fractionation joint venture with MarkWest (a wholly owned subsidiary of MPLX) (the "Joint Venture") averaged 1,202 MMcf/d for the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of 51% compared to the prior year quarter.  Gross Joint Venture fractionation volumes averaged 31 MBbl/d, a 63% increase compared to the prior year quarter. Processing and fractionation capacity was 92% and 78% utilized during the fourth quarter of 2019, respectively. The year-over-year increase in processing and fractionation volumes is primarily driven by the increase in Antero Resources' rich gas and C3+ NGL production volumes.

Maintenance capital expenditures represent the portion of our estimated capital expenditures associated with (i) the connection of new wells to our gathering and processing systems that we believe will be necessary to offset the natural production declines Antero Resources will experience on all of its wells over time, and (ii) water delivery to new wells necessary to maintain the average throughput volume on our systems.

Gathering and Processing During the fourth quarter of 2019, Antero Midstream connected 29 wells to its gathering system and compression capacity was approximately 85% utilized throughout the quarter. Antero Midstream added 120 MMcf/d of additional compression capacity in the Marcellus Shale during the fourth quarter of 2019 to support the anticipated growth in Antero Resources' production. Antero Resources is currently operating 4 drilling rigs and 4 completion crews on Antero Midstream dedicated acreage. The Joint Venture recently placed the Sherwood 12 and Sherwood 13 processing plants online, bringing the Joint Venture's total processing capacity to 1.4 Bcf/d.

Water HandlingAntero Midstream's Marcellus water delivery systems serviced 32 well completions during the fourth quarter of 2019, a 7% increase from the prior year quarter.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2019, Antero Midstream had approximately $960 million drawn on its $2.13 billion bank credit facility, resulting in approximately $1.2 billion of liquidity.  Antero Midstream's Net Debt to trailing twelve months pro forma Adjusted EBITDA was 3.5x as of December 31, 2019.

Capital Investments

Total capital expenditures including investments in the Joint Venture were $126 million during the fourth quarter of 2019. Gathering, compression, and water infrastructure capital investments totaled $89 million and investments in unconsolidated affiliates for the Joint Venture were $37 million during the quarter. Of the $89 million invested in gathering, compression, and water infrastructure, $63 million was invested in gathering and compression assets and $26 million was invested in water handling assets.    

2020 Guidance and Capital Budget

Today in a separate news release, Antero Resources announced its 2020 drilling and completion capital budget of $1.15 billion, which is forecast to generate net production growth of approximately 9% over 2019 production.  Antero Resources has stated that it is more than 94% hedged on its expected natural gas production in 2020 at a price of $2.87/MMbtu, or approximately 40% above current NYMEX strip pricing. In addition, Antero Resources announced that it expects its budget to be cash flow neutral in 2020 with leverage to trend towards the mid 2-times range, assuming execution of its previously announced asset sale program. Based on Antero Resources' net production growth forecast, Antero Resources expects to achieve all quarterly low pressure gathering targets under the recently announced growth incentive fee program in 2020, which results in $48 million of midstream fee reductions from Antero Midstream that are included in Antero Midstream's financial guidance.

During 2020, Antero Midstream plans to expand its existing Marcellus and Ohio Utica Shale gathering, compression and fresh water delivery systems, and the processing capabilities of the Joint Venture to accommodate Antero Resources' development program.  Antero Midstream has budgeted capital investments in 2020 of $300 million to $325 million, including $245 million to $260 in expansion capital and $55 million to $65 million in maintenance capital, respectively. 

The capital budget includes approximately $200 million of investment in gathering and compression infrastructure primarily in the Marcellus Shale in West Virginia to support production growth in the liquids-rich production areas.  Antero Midstream has budgeted an investment of $75 million for fresh water delivery and wastewater blending and pipeline infrastructure to support Antero Resources' development in Tyler and Wetzel Counties, West Virginia.  Antero Midstream's capital budget also includes an investment of $30 million for its 50% interest in the Joint Venture, primarily for the continued construction of the Smithburg processing complex. Antero Midstream expects to fund all 2020 capital expenditures through cash flow from operations.

Michael Kennedy, CFO of Antero Midstream, said, "As a result of the 52% year-over-year reduction in capital expenditures combined with Adjusted EBITDA growth in 2020, Antero Midstream expects to generate significant free cash flow and maintain a strong balance sheet with Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA in the mid 3-times range."

Pro Forma Information

The pro forma information presented herein is for illustrative purposes only. If this Simplification Transaction had occurred in the past, operating results might have been materially different from those presented in the pro forma financial information. The pro forma financial information should not be relied upon as an indication of operating results that Antero Midstream would have achieved if the Simplification Transaction had taken place on January 1, 2018. In addition, future results may vary significantly from the pro forma results reflected in this release and should not be relied upon as an indication of Antero Midstream's future results. For more information, please see Antero Midstream's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definitions

Antero Midstream uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. Antero Midstream defines Adjusted Net Income as net income plus amortization of customer contracts and impairment expenses. Antero Midstream uses Adjusted Net Income to assess the operating performance of its assets. Antero Midstream defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income before amortization of customer relationships, impairment expense, interest expense, provision for income taxes (benefit), depreciation expense, accretion, equity-based compensation expense, excluding equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates, and including cash distributions from unconsolidated affiliates.

Antero Midstream uses Adjusted EBITDA to assess:

  • the financial performance of Antero Midstream's assets, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;
  • its operating performance and return on capital as compared to other publicly traded companies in the midstream energy sector, without regard to financing or capital structure; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects.

Antero Midstream defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less interest expense less capital expenditures before dividend payments or share repurchases. Antero Midstream uses Free Cash Flow as a performance metric to compare the cash generating performance of Antero Midstream from period to period.  Free Cash Flow does not reflect changes in working capital balances.

Antero Midstream's defines Distributable Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less interest paid, decrease in cash reserved for bond interest, income tax withholding upon vesting of equity-based compensation awards, AMGP general and administrative expenses, and ongoing maintenance capital expenditures paid. Antero Midstream uses Distributable Cash Flow as a performance metric to compare the cash generating performance of Antero Midstream from period to period and to compare the cash generating performance for specific periods to the cash dividends (if any) that are expected to be paid to shareholders.  Distributable Cash Flow does not reflect changes in working capital balances.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Free Cash Flow and Distributable Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures.  The GAAP measure most directly comparable to such measures is Net Income.  Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the GAAP measure of Net Income.  The presentations of such measures are not made in accordance with GAAP and have important limitations as analytical tools because they include some, but not all, items that affect Net Income and, as applicable, Adjusted EBITDA.  You should not consider any or all such measures in isolation or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP.  Antero Midstream's definitions of such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Antero Midstream defines Net Debt as consolidated total debt less cash and cash equivalents.  Antero Midstream views Net Debt as an important indicator in evaluating Antero Midstream's financial leverage.

Antero Midstream has not included a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Free Cash Flow or Distributable Cash Flow to the nearest GAAP financial measure for 2020 because it cannot do so without unreasonable effort and any attempt to do so would be inherently imprecise. Antero Midstream is able to forecast the following reconciling items between such measures and Net Income (in thousands):
