Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the announcement.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Vermilion Energy’s third-quarter earnings per share of $1.63 has witnessed no upward revision and one downward movement in the past 30 days. The estimate figure suggests a 191% improvement from 56 cents reported in the year-ago quarter.
Factors to Consider
In the September-end quarter, crude oil and natural gas prices increased significantly from the prior-year quarter. Strong commodity prices are expected to have been favorable for Vermilion Energy’s exploration and production activities in the third quarter, as it is a leading upstream energy player with a strong footprint in the prolific resources of North America, Europe and Australia.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Vermilion Energy’s total production is pegged at 86,278 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boe/d), suggesting an increase from 84,633 Boe/d reported in the year-ago quarter.
While a healthier commodity price scenario and increased production are likely to have boosted the company’s profit levels in the to-be-reported quarter, an escalation in costs is anticipated to have played a spoilsport.
