Entire Document
 


In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which requires lessees to recognize the lease assets and lease liabilities classified as operating leases on the balance sheet and disclosing key quantitative and qualitative information about leasing arrangements. The amendment will be effective for reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. QEP does not plan to early adopt this new standard. This standard does not apply to leases to explore for or use minerals, oil or natural gas resources, including the right to explore for those natural resources. QEP believes this new guidance will likely increase the recorded asset and liability balances on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets due to the required recognition of right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities, but has not determined the aggregate amount of change.

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, Accounting for Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Asset Transfers of Assets Other than Inventory, which intends to reduce the complexity in accounting standards related to intra-entity asset transfers by requiring a reporting entity to recognize the tax effects from the sale of assets when a transfer occurs, even though the pre-tax effects of the transaction are eliminated in consolidation. This amendment was effective retrospectively for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and early adoption was permitted. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2018 and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted cash, which intends to clarify how entities should present restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. This amendment was effective retrospectively for reporting periods after December 15, 2017, and early adoption was permitted. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2018 and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, Income statement - Reporting comprehensive income (Topic 220) - Reclassification of certain tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income, which allows a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The amendment will be effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the ASU on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In March 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-05, Income Taxes (Topic 740) - Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118, which amends guidance on certain investments and income taxes as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The amendment is effective upon issuance. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 2 – Revenue

Adoption of ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers

On January 1, 2018, QEP adopted ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, using the modified retrospective approach, which was applied to those contracts which were not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning January 1, 2018, are presented in accordance with ASC Topic 606, while prior period amounts are reported in accordance with ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition.

In accordance with ASC Topic 606, QEP now records transportation and processing costs that are incurred after control of its product has transferred to the customer as a reduction of "Oil and condensate, gas and NGL sales" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Prior to the adoption of ASC Topic 606, these transportation and processing costs were recorded as an expense within "Transportation and processing costs" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. There was no impact to net income (loss) or opening retained earnings as a result of adopting ASC Topic 606.
