Gastar is increasing its 2017 drilling capital budget to approximately $129.2 million in order to accommodate higher working interests, more operated wells, and an increase in non-operated drilling activity. The capital budget was increased by approximately $45.3 million.

Goodrich Petroleum

Houston based Goodrich Petroleum (ticker: GDP) announced that it had produced a total of 3.3 Bcfe for the quarter, averaging approximately 36,300 Mcfe per day—85% of which was natural gas.

In its Haynesville Shale, Goodrich—as of its Q2, 2017 update—was in the process of drilling one well with a 10,000 foot lateral. After that well is completed, Goodrich intends to drill and complete another two wells—both with an expected lateral length of 7,500 feet.

Goodrich anticipates that its Haynesville acreage, which totals 50,000 gross (26,000 net) acres across Louisiana and Texas, has 250 gross (100 net) potential drilling locations.

The company added 3,000 net acres in two acquisitions during Q2.

Gran Tierra Energy

Gran Tierra Energy (ticker: GTE) indicated that it was producing 34,178 BOEPD as of the last week of July, 2017—an increase of 20% over its average Q1 production.

Gran Tierra announced progress in multiple development areas. In its Costayaco acreage, where it is targeting the A-Limestone, two horizontal wells are now on production.

A multi-zone discovery in an exploration well in its Putomayo basin showed production of 1,938 BOPD out of one zone and 217 BOPD from another zone.

Gran Tierra also saw good performance from two Putomayo wells that are targeting the N Sand, which produced over 2,000 BOPD between the two. The company has also more than doubled the production out of its Acordionero assets since acquiring the assets 11 months ago. The production has leapt from 5,620 BOPD to 11,958 BOPD in the field.

In an effort to focus more heavily on its Colombia assets, Gran Tierra sold its assets in Brazil for $38 million in late June. This caused the company to revise its average 2017 production guidance to between 33,300 and 34,300 BOEPD.
