According to Zacks, “Denbury Resources acquired 23% non-operated working interest in Salt Creek Field in Wyoming from Linn Energy. With its unique profile, compelling economics and unmatched infrastructure, Denbury Resources is well positioned to deliver long-term sustainable growth. We appreciate the company’s cost-reduction initiatives and it has also raised its guidance for 2017 production. In spite of the company’s field in the Gulf area being affected by tropical storm Harvey, its 2017 production estimate remains unaltered. Other positives for the company include low-risk investments, a strong financial position and an active divestment policy.”
