"Through the diligent execution of our growth strategy, Diamondback produced a solid quarter as we expanded our drilling activities in the Permian Basin," stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Diamondback Energy, Inc. "As we continue to focus on improving our operational efficiencies and increase production, we have directed our resources to capitalize on the opportunities afforded to us by horizontal drilling. This strategy has led us to increase our horizontal well development program, where the initial results from our first three horizontal wells have been encouraging. We look forward to releasing the initial results of six additional horizontal Wolfcamp B wells over the next 90 days."
