During the company’s breakout session, management was asked the following questions:

  • In regards to your current wells, is the cost staying relatively flat?
  • Can you comment a little on your competitors El Paso and BHP?
  • Do you foresee any constraints for services you need given the competition around the area?
  • How many wells per section do you believe you can get up to?
  • What do you expect to be necessary capital expenditures for infrastructure needs going forward?
  • What are the major obstacles you’re working with as far as completing wells right now?
  • How much fracturing fluid have you been recovering?
  • Approach is one of the first companies using stacked laterals, how are you looking at drilling and designing that?
  • What are the monthly operating costs you’re seeing on the horizontals and what do you think you can get that down to?
  • When would you bring additional horizontal rigs in?
  • Based on your current stacking levels, what would be going too fast in the play?
  • Over such a large geographical area, what is the biggest geologic risk that you see?
