Penn West cuts 2016 capex by 90 percent
(Reuters) - Canada's Penn West Petroleum Ltd (PWT.TO: Quote) cut its 2016 capital budget by as much as 90 percent to C$50 million from a year earlier, to weather a steep plunge in crude oil prices.
The company said it expects to produce 60,000-64,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day this year, about 30 percent lower than its 2015 production estimate in September.
