Gulfport Energy Corporation Reports First Quarter 2013 Results


At WCBB, Gulfport commenced its 2013 drilling program on March 1, 2013 and drilled three wells, completing one well as productive during the first quarter of 2013. One well was waiting on completion and one well was still being drilled at the end of the quarter. In addition, Gulfport performed 22 recompletions at the field. At present, Gulfport has one rig active at WCBB drilling ahead on the sixth well of 2013 at the field.

Canadian Oil Sands

In the Canadian Oil Sands, Grizzly began commissioning at its first SAGD facility at Algar Lake and expects first production during the third quarter of 2013. From an exploratory standpoint, Grizzly continues to work towards filing a regulatory application to support an initial 12,000 barrel per day ("bpd") SAGD project at May River by the end of 2013.

2013 Guidance Update

Gulfport currently estimates 2013 production to be in the range of 7.8 million to 8.1 million BOE. Capital expenditures for drilling activities during 2013 are estimated to be in the range of $570 million to $590 million. The increase in capital expenditures for drilling activities is due to Gulfport's accelerated activity in the Utica Shale. Gulfport now currently plans to drill 55 to 60 gross (49 to 54 net) wells in the Utica Shale.
