    Precision Drilling shares jump on earnings beat, higher activity forecast

    CALGARY — Progress in getting oil export pipelines approved is boosting optimism in Western Canada's oilpatch, leading to more demand for rigs and hundreds of crew members being called back to work, the CEO of Precision Drilling Corp. said Thursday.But while brighter outlooks have boosted the number of rigs it has in the field, Kevin Neveu said his forecast for 2020 growth is modest, with average activity likely winding up flat compared with last year."Today we are running 80 rigs, versus 55 at this time last year," he said on a conference call to discuss fourth-quarter results."We expect Precision's Canadian activity will remain in the mid-70s through the end of February, and that the seasonal spring breakup slowdown will be weather driven, rather than a function of budget exhaustion."Overall, with a 40 per cent increase in rig activity year-over-year, Precision has added 450 new field personnel since mid-2019," he said.Increased demand is coming from producers tapping liquids-rich natural gas reservoirs in the Montney and Duvernay areas of western Alberta and northeastern B.C., and in heavy oil, including thermal oilsands, he said.The two go hand-in-hand as producers use condensate, a light petroleum produced with natural gas, to dilute heavy oil so that it will flow in a pipeline.While sentiment is up based on advances in getting the Trans Mountain expansion, Keystone XL and Line 3 replacement pipelines built, Neveu warned the Canadian oil and gas sector remains "highly sensitive" to macro economic news.Precision's report follows a forecast from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers two weeks ago that predicted a jump of about $2 billion in capital spending in the oil and gas sector this year, after spending declines in four of the past five years.That will take the total to about $37 billion, which is less than half as much as in 2014 when investment levels reached $81 billion, the group said.Meanwhile, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada recently revised its 2020 drilling forecast to 4,800 wells, an increase of 300 wells or seven per cent from its October estimate.Precision shares jumped by more than 10 per cent on the Toronto Stock Exchange Thursday after it reported fourth-quarter revenue and earnings that beat expectations.Its stock rose by as much as 17 cents to $1.83. Their 52-week high of $4.06 was set last April.The Calgary-based driller said it had a net loss of $1.06 million on revenue of $372 million in the three months ended Dec. 31, compared with a net loss of $198 million (mainly due to a goodwill writedown) on revenue of $427 million in the same period of 2018.The figures beat analyst expectations of a net loss of $16.6 million on revenue of $357 million, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.The company's 13 per cent decline in revenue in the fourth quarter was blamed on lower oil and gas drilling activity in both Canada and the United States, offset by higher activity in its international operations.It reported a net after-tax loss of $15 million in the quarter due to decommissioning drilling and other equipment that no longer meets technology standards.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Feb. 13.Companies in this story: (TSX:PD) Dan Healing, The Canadian Press

    Most actively traded companies on the TSX

    TORONTO — Some of the most active companies traded Wednesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange:Toronto Stock Exchange (17,511.75, up 10.87 points.)Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B). Industrials. Down three cents, or 2.31 per cent, to $1.27 on 7.6 million shares.Wallbridge Mining Company Ltd. (TSX:WM). Materials. Up 17 cents, or 22.97, to 91 cents on 5.4 million shares.Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY). Financials. Up eight cents, or 0.08 per cent, to $105.78 on 4.9 million shares.Precision Drilling Corp. (TSX:PD). Energy. Up seven cents, or 4.46 per cent, to $1.64 on 4.9 million shares.Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB). Energy. Up 23 cents, or 0.43 per cent, to $54.33 on 4.2 million shares.Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU). Energy. Down four cents, or 0.1 per cent, to $41.51 on 3.8 million shares. Companies in the news:Air Canada (TSX:AC). Up 50 cents to $45.60. Air Canada is halting all direct flights to China following the federal government's advisory to avoid non-essential travel to the mainland due to the coronavirus epidemic. The suspension is effective Thursday and slated to last until Feb. 29, Air Canada said. Canada's largest airline runs 33 flights a week to Beijing and Shanghai. Earlier this week it began to cancel select flights as customers delayed trips and called off travel plans due to fears of the spreading epidemic.Teck Resources Ltd. (TSX:TECK.B). Up six cents to $17.81. The CEO of Teck Resources Ltd. says it's "anyone's guess" as to whether the federal government will allow his company to build the proposed $20.6-billion Frontier oilsands mine in northeastern Alberta. But Don Lindsay says the lengthy process of getting a permit to build the project near Wood Buffalo National Park didn't cost much and is worthwhile even if the Vancouver-based company ultimately decides not to go ahead with construction. On Tuesday, federal Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson linked approval of the mine with provincial efforts to help Canada meet its climate goals and added the government has the right to delay its decision, which is expected before the end of February.Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP). Up $4.80 to $348.56. Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. reported a record fourth-quarter profit as it seized on higher crude volumes and overcame a late grain harvest and other headwinds to boost profits by 22 per cent. CEO Keith Creel said global economic uncertainty slowed volumes across North America. Income from energy, chemicals and plastics shot up by one-third last quarter, with crude volumes reaching a company record at more than 36,000 carloads. It reported a fourth-quarter net income of $664 million, up from a profit of $545 million in the same period a year earlier.Restaurant Brands International (TSX:QSR). Up 33 cents to $82.97. Tim Hortons has stopped selling Beyond Meat products in Ontario and B.C. — the last two provinces serving them after the company scaled back the plant-based offering in September. A spokeswoman for the coffee chain's parent company, Restaurant Brands International, says there was not enough demand to keep selling Beyond Meat breakfast sandwiches in the two provinces. The company first piloted the plant-based breakfast sandwich in May, before rolling out three plant-based sandwiches nationally in June. A month later, it added two Beyond Meat burgers to menus nationwide.CGI Inc. (TSX:GIB.A). Down $8.91 or 7.9 per cent to $104.00. CGI Inc. says its first-quarter profit fell compared with a year ago as it was hit by one-time restructuring costs and integration expenses. The technology and business consulting firm says it earned $290.2 million or $1.06 per diluted share for the quarter ended Dec. 31. That compared with a profit of $311.5 million or $1.11 per diluted share in the same period a year earlier. Revenue totalled $3.05 billion, up from $2.96 billion. CGI says its first-quarter results included $16.5 million in acquisition-related and integration costs and $28.2 million in restructuring expenses.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 29, 2020.
