Murphy Oil Corp is an oil & gas exploration and production company with operations in the United States, Canada, Malaysia and all other countries.

Murphy Oil Corp was originally incorporated in Louisiana in 1950 as Murphy Corporation. It was reincorporated in Delaware in 1964. It is an oil and gas exploration and production company. The Company is in the process of transitioning from an integrated oil company to an enterprise entirely focused on oil and gas exploration and production activities. The Company's exploration and production activities are subdivided into five geographic segments, including the United States, Canada, Malaysia, the Republic of the Congo and all other countries. The Company's exploration and production business explores for and produces crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. The Company's exploration and production management team in Houston, Texas, directs the Company's exploration and production activities. In the United States, the Company has production of oil and/or natural gas from fields in the Eagle Ford Shale area of South Texas and in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. In Canada, the Company owns an interest in three non-operated assets - the Hibernia and Terra Nova fields offshore Newfoundland in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin and Syncrude Canada Ltd. in northern Alberta. In addition, the Company owns interests in one heavy oil area and two natural gas areas in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. In Malaysia, the Company has majority interests in eight separate production sharing contracts (PSCs). The Company serves as the operator of all these areas other than the unitized Kakap-Gumusut field. In Australia, the Company holds eight offshore exploration permits and serves as operator of six of them. The Company currently has interests in two exploration licenses in Indonesia and serves as operator of these concessions.

Guru Investment Theses on Murphy Oil Corp

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on Murphy Oil - Oct 22, 2015

As one of our energy holdings, Murphy Oil (NYSE:MUR), an exploration and production company with a portfolio of global offshore and onshore assets, was a primary performance detractor, down 41% in the quarter, with approximately half of the impact coming from the equity we hold and the other half from the options. This happened despite beating estimates on production and operating cash flow (OCF) and raising production estimates for the rest of the year. Murphy management is focused on driving costs lower and shortening drill times while improving production efficiency to reduce capex to cash flow levels. Furthermore, after disappointing international drilling results in recent years, the company will not invest in higher risk, higher cost wells at this time; instead, management plans to focus rig commitments and to allocate capital to higher return opportunities near lower-risk existing infrastructure where the company has had prior exploration success. Murphy remains well capitalized with diverse cash flow sources and an investment grade rating. It also has non-core pieces that could be monetized to unlock value. CEO Roger Jenkins continues to repurchase shares at the company level and invest personally.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Murphy Oil - Feb 11, 2015

Murphy (MUR) was down 20% in the year after an 11% decline in the fourth quarter. CEO Roger Jenkins took actions to recognize value including selling a 30% stake in Malaysian assets at a price above our appraisal. Murphy also bought back shares in 2014 and has authorization for more. The sharp decline in oil prices most heavily affected Murphy’s ownership in Syncrude’s Canadian oil sands, which represented less than 15% of our appraisal before oil’s drop and less today.
