Goodrich Petroleum Corporation (ticker: GDP) has updated and accelerated its preliminary capital expenditure budget for 2018, following the recent $23 million asset sale. For 2018, the company’s board of directors approved a $20 million increase to $85-$95 million to accelerate development in its core Haynesville Shale acreage position.

The company anticipates drilling 21 gross (8.7 net) horizontal wells for the year, with a blended net average lateral length of approximately 9,000 feet.

The capital expenditure budget is subject to quarterly review and approval by the company’s board of directors, Goodrich said.

Based on the revised accelerated budget, the company expects net production to grow throughout the year with an estimated 2018 exit rate of approximately 100,000 Mcfe/d.

In addition, the company estimates per unit cash operating expenses will continue to decline in 2019 by an additional 25%-30%, versus the declines expected in 2018.
