Lodzinski said the company’s goals include continued development of current assets and expansion of additional acreage positions. He said the company would continue to pursue M&A opportunities “aggressively but prudently.”
Earthstone’s property portfolio includes activities in the Eagle Ford trend of South Texas and in the Williston Basin in both North Dakota and Montana, including almost 38,000 net Eagle Ford and Bakken acres. In its recent investor presentation, management estimated the company has a total of approximately 783 gross drilling locations, with an average working interest of 25%.
