Oil and gas environmental service provider, Heckmann (NYSE: HEK  ) , reported first-quarter earnings on May 8. The company missed slightly on both the top and bottom lines which sent shares dipping in after-hours trading. However, all was not lost on the quarter so let’s dig in and see what happened.

A deeper look at the numbers
Going into the report analysts were expecting a loss of a penny a share on revenue of $166.9 million. For the quarter, Heckmann produced revenue of $159.5 million and had a loss of $0.05 a share. However, revenue for the quarter nearly tripled year over year and the company delivered adjusted EBITDA of $32.1 million.

The biggest culprit contributing to the miss was unusually harsh weather. Heckmann pointed out that weather affected 13 days of work in its Bakken operations with additional days being lost to weather in the Marcellus. Heckmann was far from the only company to have a weather-related miss in the quarter. While the company planned for weather to be a factor, it turned out to be worse than expected.
