Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Explanatory note: Pioneer Natural Resources Company and its subsidiaries ("Pioneer" or the "Company") presents in this Item 2.02 certain information for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022 regarding (i) the impact to results of operations related to changes in the fair value of derivative instruments and certain other information regarding its derivative instruments, (ii) the impact to results of operations from the change in fair value of the Company's investment in affiliate, (iii) the net effect of third party purchases and sales of oil, gas, diesel and sand on its results of operations, (iv) a fourth quarter and full year 2022 production update and (v) the weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding.
The following table summarizes the net derivative results that the Company expects to report in its earnings for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022:
|Three Months Ended December 31, 2022|
Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2022

|Total cash payments on settled derivative instruments, net||(129)||(411)|
|Total derivative loss, net||$||(128)||$||(315)|
Investment in Affiliate
The Company owns 16.6 million shares of ProPetro Holding Corp. ("ProPetro"), which is measured on a recurring basis at fair value. The Company expects to report noncash gains of $38 million and $37 million on its investment in ProPetro for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022, respectively.
Sales of Purchased Commodities
The Company enters into pipeline capacity commitments in order to secure available oil, NGLs and gas transportation capacity from the Company's areas of production and secure diesel supply from the Gulf Coast. The Company also enters into purchase commitments to secure sand supply for the Company's operations in the Midland Basin. The Company enters into purchase transactions with third parties and separate sale transactions with third parties to diversify a portion of the Company's oil and gas sales to (i) Gulf Coast refineries, (ii) Gulf Coast and West Coast gas markets and (iii) international oil markets, and to satisfy unused gas pipeline capacity commitments. The Company periodically sells diesel and sand to unaffiliated third parties in the Permian Basin if it has supply in excess of its operational needs. The Company expects the net earnings effect of third party purchases and sales of oil, gas, diesel and sand for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022 to result in losses of $76 million and $161 million, respectively.
Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Production Update
During December 2022, the Company's operations in West Texas were impacted by Winter Storm Elliott, which led to abnormally cold temperatures across the state of Texas. As a result, the Company experienced unexpected weather-related downtime that negatively impacted its fourth quarter 2022 production by approximately 4,500 barrels of oil per day and 8,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The Company expects to report fourth quarter 2022 average daily production of 351 thousand barrels of oil per day and 662 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day. Excluding the impacts of Winter Storm Elliott, the Company would have expected production for the fourth quarter 2022 to average 355 thousand barrels of oil per day and 670 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day. The Company successfully restored the affected production by the end of December
2022. The Company expects to report full year 2022 average daily production of 352 thousand barrels of oil per day and 650 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Weighted Average Basic and Diluted Shares Outstanding
The components of basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022 are as follows:
|Three Months Ended December 31, 2022|
Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2022
|Basic weighted average shares outstanding||237||240|
|Convertible notes dilution (a)||10||12|
|Diluted weighted average shares outstanding||247||252|
(a)Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding includes the dilutive effect had the Company's convertible notes been converted as of the beginning of the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022, respectively. If converted by the holder, the Company may settle in cash, shares of the Company's common stock or a combination thereof, at the Company's election.
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
Commodity derivatives. As of January 25, 2023, the Company's outstanding commodity derivative contracts include 3,000 barrels of oil per day of Brent basis swaps for January 2024 through December 2024. The basis swap contracts fix the basis differential between the West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") index price (the price at which the Company buys Midland Basin oil for transport to the Gulf Coast) and the Brent index price (the price at which a portion of the Midland Basin purchased oil is sold in the Gulf Coast market) at a weighted average differential of $4.33.
Marketing derivatives. As of January 25, 2023, the Company's outstanding marketing derivatives reflect long-term marketing contracts whereby the Company agreed to purchase and simultaneously sell barrels of oil at an oil terminal in Midland, Texas.
In October 2019, the Company agreed to purchase and simultaneously sell 50 thousand barrels of oil per day beginning January 1, 2021 and ending December 31, 2026.
In April 2022, the Company agreed to purchase and simultaneously sell (i) 40 thousand barrels of oil per day beginning May 1, 2022 and ending April 30, 2027 and (ii) 30 thousand barrels of oil per day beginning August 1, 2022 and ending July 31, 2027.
The price the Company pays to purchase the oil volumes under the purchase contracts is based on a Midland WTI price and the price the Company receives for the oil volumes sold is a weighted average sales price that a non-affiliated counterparty receives for selling oil through a Gulf Coast storage and export facility at prices that are highly correlated with Brent oil prices during the same month of the purchase.
