Manage Risk

Crescent Point strives to manage the risks associated with the oil and gas industry and to provide long-term stability to its dividends. To accomplish this, we maintain a strong balance sheet with significant unutilized lines of credit. Crescent Point actively hedges commodity prices, using a rolling 3-½ year price risk management program. We hedge up to 65 percent of after-Crown royalty volumes, using a portfolio of swaps, collars and put option instruments.

Trent Stangl, our Sr. Vice President of Investor Relations and Communications, on how our hedging program works and why it’s so important.
