"Picking up where we left off in the fourth quarter, our first quarter outperformance reflects the combination of strong well results and cost efficiencies," said Ovintiv President and CEO, Brendan McCracken.

Our recently announced transactions will further build on our momentum and are expected to drive more than 25% higher cash returns per share over the next twelve months following the close of the transactions and more than 40% higher cash returns per share in 2024."
