Breakout session at the EnerCom conference

During Chaparral Energy’sbreakout session at the 2018 EnerCom conference, management was asked the following questions:

  • Alta Mesa’s stock acted very negatively after the last operations update and Gastar went bankrupt. Can you help us get comfortable with what that means for the plays you guys have acted in and how reliable type curves are versus actual?
  • Compare and contrast how you guys develop the basin versus Alta Mesa.
  • 7000 acres you acquired is that a kind of significant block or you believe yourselves to be consolidators?
  • You brought up cube development and I was wondering if you are planning on using any technologies like microsizing, etc.
  • What will be the focus in 2019? Will it be more on Kingfisher or legacy acreage as well?
  • Are you losing acreage from pooling?
  • Can you talk to the type curves for the Osage and Meramec?
  • What will the recovery factor be after 5-10 years?
  • In Garfield, we’re seeing a lot of variability. Can you explain?
  • Can you give us a brief overview of the geology on Garfield?
