Description of the company
ARC Resources was formed by amalgamation under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta). Prior to January 1, 2011, ARC was one of Canada's largest conventional oil and gas royalty trusts and was founded in 1996.
Currently, ARC is one of Canada’s leading conventional oil and gas corporations with average production in 2016 of 118,671 boe per day. ARC’s business activities include the exploration, development and production of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids in four core areas located in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada. ARC has focused on the acquisition and development of resource-rich properties that provide an option for both near-term and long-term growth. ARC trades on the TSX under the symbol ARX and currently pays a monthly dividend to its Shareholders.
At December 31, 2016, ARC had approximately 464 professional, technical and support staff, with 261 employees in the Calgary office and 203 employees located across ARC’s operating areas.
Our principal office is located at 1200, 308 – 4th Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2P 0H7 and our registered office is located at 2400, 525 – 8th Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2P 1G1.
ARC Resources is a sole legal entity and does not have any subsidiaries or affiliates as of December 31, 2016.
Effective March 1, 2016, 1504793 Alberta Ltd. was wound up resulting in the dissolution of ARC Resources General Partnership.
ARC’s vision is to be a leading energy producer, focused on delivering results through its strategy of risk-managed value creation. ARC is committed to providing superior long-term financial returns for its Shareholders, creating a culture where respect for the individual is paramount and action and passion are rewarded. ARC runs its business in a manner that protects the safety of employees, communities and the environment. ARC’s vision is realized through the four pillars of its strategy:
High-quality, long-life assets – ARC’s unique suite of assets includes primarily Montney and Cardium assets. ARC’s Montney assets consist of world-class resource play properties, concentrated in northeast British Columbia and northern Alberta. The Montney assets provide substantial growth opportunities, which ARC will pursue to create value through long-term profitable development. Other assets are located in Alberta and include core assets in the Cardium formation in the Pembina area of Alberta. These assets deliver stable production and contribute cash to fund future development and support ARC's dividend.
Operational excellence – ARC is focused on capital discipline and cost management to extract the maximum return on its investments while operating in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Production from individual crude oil and natural gas wells naturally declines over time. In any one year, ARC approves a budget to drill new wells with the intent to first replace production declines and second to potentially increase production volumes, when both can be done profitably. At times, ARC may also acquire strategic producing or undeveloped properties to enhance current production and reserves or to provide potential future drilling locations. Alternatively, it may strategically dispose of non-core assets that no longer meet its investment criteria.
Financial flexibility – ARC provides returns to Shareholders through a combination of a monthly dividend, currently $0.05 per share per month, and the potential for capital appreciation. ARC’s long-term goal is to fund dividend payments and capital expenditures necessary for the replacement of production declines using funds from operations (1). ARC will finance value-creating growth activities through a combination of sources including funds from operations, proceeds from property dispositions, debt capacity, and when appropriate, equity issuance. ARC chooses to maintain prudent debt levels. At year-end 2016, ARC’s net debt to annualized funds from operations was 0.5 times,however over the long term ARC targets a net debt to annualized funds from operations between one and 1.5 times and less than 20 per cent of total capitalization(1).
Top talent and strong leadership culture – ARC is committed to the attraction, retention and development of the best and brightest people in the industry. ARC’s employees conduct business every day in a culture of trust, respect, integrity and accountability. Building leadership talent at all levels of the organization is a key focus. ARC is also committed to corporate leadership through community investment, environmental reporting practices and open communication with all stakeholders.
