Canadian Deep Basin producer Peyto Exploration & Development said March 8 it had record net earnings in 2022 alongside record funds from operations, as annual production rose 14% and free funds flow tripled.

Earnings increased to C$390.7mn (US$283mn) from C$152.2mn, while funds from operations rose to C$827.6mn from C$469.7mn and free funds flow jumped to C$321mn from C$105mn. Peyto returned C$102.4mn to shareholders in the form of dividends in 2022, up from C$21.8mn in 2021 and reduced net debt by C$214mn.
