Cenovus Energy Inc is an integrated oil company. The Company is in the business of developing, producing and marketing crude oil, NGLs and natural gas in Canada with refining operations in the United States.

Cenovus Energy Inc was incorporated on September 24, 2008 under the CBCA as 7050372 Canada Inc. It is an integrated oil company. It is in the business of developing, producing and marketing crude oil, NGLs and natural gas in Canada with refining operations in the United States. The Company's reportable segments are Oil Sands, Conventional, and Refining and Marketing. Oil Sands includes the development and production of its bitumen assets at Foster Creek, Christina Lake and Narrows Lake as well as projects in the early stages of development, such as Grand Rapids and Telephone Lake. The Athabasca natural gas assets also form part of this segment. Certain of the Company's operated oil sands properties, notably Foster Creek, Christina Lake and Narrows Lake, are jointly owned with ConocoPhillips, an unrelated U.S. public company. Conventional includes the development and production of conventional crude oil, NGLs and natural gas in Alberta and Saskatchewan, including the heavy oil assets at Pelican Lake. This segment also includes the CO2 enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") project at Weyburn and emerging tight oil opportunities. Refining and Marketing is responsible for transporting, selling and refining crude oil into petroleum and chemical products. It jointly owns two refineries in the U.S. with the operator Phillips 66, an unrelated U.S. public company. This segment coordinates its marketing and transportation initiatives to optimize product mix, delivery points, transportation commitments and customer diversification. All of its reserves and production are located in Canada, within the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. It competes with other producers and refiners. All of the Company's operations are subject to regulation and intervention by governments that can affect or prohibit the drilling, completion and tie-in of wells, production, the construction or expansion of facilities and refineries and the operation and abandonment of fields.

Guru Investment Theses on Cenovus Energy Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Cenovus Energy Inc - Jan 09, 2015

Another way we seek to capture losses is to replace losing stocks with similar, but equally attractive, stocks. An example in the Oakmark Fund from this past quarter was selling our remaining Cenovus (CVE) shares and redeploying the proceeds into Chesapeake (CHK). We believe Cenovus is a fine, well-managed company, but due to rapidly declining oil prices, it had fallen beneath our purchase price. Another company we believed was also fine and well-managed, Chesapeake, had fallen to a price where it appeared to us to be more attractive than Cenovus. So even though Cenovus was far beneath our sell target, we captured the loss, increased our exposure to an energy sector we thought was cheap and switched to a stock we believed was somewhat more attractive.
