  • Sales to hedge:
    • Futures crude oil and natural gas production
  • Purchases to hedge:
    • Natural gas

Interest Rate Risk
  • 2 sources of interest rate risk to be dealt with:

risk management statement
Risk Management Statement

“We are exposed to normal market risks inherent in the oil and natural gas business, including, but not limited to, commodity price risk, foreign currency risk, credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk and environmental and climate change risk. We seek to mitigate these risks through various business processes and management controls and from time to time by using financial instruments.”

Managing downside risk, while preserving exposure to commodity price upside

statement on hedging
Statement on Hedging

“Penn West considers price hedging of oil and natural gas production to be a useful tool of risk management. Its uses include protecting planned capital budgets, safeguarding the economics of acquisitions and providing downside cash flow protection to support planned distributions.”

“Penn West continues to employ derivative instruments on a portion of its production volumes spanning several quarters into the future. The company also secured hedges to fix the costs of electric power at its oilfield operations, improving its ability to project operating costs, netbacks and cash flows.”

“Penn West is careful and judicious in its hedging activities in order to preserve exposure to commodity price upside and avoid unreasonable opportunity costs.”


risk factors
Risk Factors

Commodity Price Risk

Foreign Currency Exchange Risk

Interest Rate Risk

Credit Risk

commodity price risk1
Commodity Price Risk
  • Oil and natural gas price risk most significant exposure.
  • Active hedging program that uses swaps, collars and other financial instruments up to a maximum of 50% of forecasted short term sales volumes.
  • Secures hedges to fix the costs of electric power at its oilfield operation, improving its ability to project operating costs and cash flows.
foreign currency exchange risk
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk
  • Commodity prices referenced to US dollars, thus realized prices are impacted by CAD/USD exchange rates.
  • Debt capital is denominated in USD, thus principal and interest payments in CAD are also impacted by exchange rates.
  • Use forward contracts to fix or collar future exchange rates to fix the CAD equivalent of oil revenues or to fix USD denominated long-term debt principal repayments.

Foreign Currency Forward Contracts Outstanding as of Dec. 31, 2010

interest rate risk1
Interest Rate Risk
  • Currently maintain a portion of debt capital in floating-rate bank facilities which results in exposure to fluctuations in short-term interest rates which remain at lower levels than longer-term rates.
  • May increase the certainty of future interest rates by entering fixed interest rate debt instruments or by using financial instruments to swap floating interest rates for fixed rates or to collar interest rates
credit risk1
Credit Risk
  • Credit risk is the risk of loss if purchasers or counterparties do not fulfill their contractual obligations.
  • Oil and natural gas sales: follow a counterparty risk procedure whereby each counterparty is reviewed on a regular basis for the purpose of assigning a credit limit and may be requested to provide security.
  • Financial derivatives: transact with counterparties who are members of their banking syndicate or other counterparties that have investment grade bond ratings.
