Q4 Results & Market Standing

On March 14, 2024, Cardinal disclosed its fourth-quarter and year-end results. While the production saw a minimal increase in Q4, net operating costs per BOE (Barrel of oil equivalent) decreased by 10% for the fourth quarter and 2% for the full year of 2023 compared to the prior year. This report followed the company's dividend announcement on March 11, 2024.
