Gulfport Energy Provides Operational Update And Schedules Second Quarter 2013 Financial And Operational Results Conference Call

OKLAHOMA CITY, July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulfport Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:GPOR) ("Gulfport") today provides an operational update and schedules second quarter 2013 financial and operational results conference call.

Production

  • Gulfport produced oil and natural gas sales volumes of 815,300 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE"), or 8,959 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOEPD"), compared to the company's previously estimated guidance range of 8,500 to 9,000 BOEPD.

For the second quarter of 2013, net production was 535,182 barrels of oil, 1,414,797 thousand cubic feet ("MCF") of natural gas and 1,861,360 gallons of natural gas liquids ("NGL"), or 815,300 BOE. Net production for the second quarter of 2013 by region was 297,421 BOE at West Cote Blanche Bay ("WCBB"), 183,703 BOE at Hackberry, 320,718 BOE in the Utica Shale and an aggregate of 13,458 BOE in the Bakken, Niobrara and other areas.

Realized prices for the second quarter of 2013, which includes transportation costs, were $113.98 per barrel of oil, $4.80 per MCF of natural gas and $1.29 per gallon of NGL, for a total equivalent price of $86.10 per BOE. Realized price for oil in the second quarter of 2013 reflects the impact of fixed price contracts for approximately 5,000 barrels of oil per day at a weighted average price of $101.96 before transportation costs and differentials. Gulfport currently has fixed price swaps in place for 5,000 barrels of oil per day at a weighted average price of $99.86 for the remainder of 2013. Subsequent to the second quarter, Gulfport entered into a new hedging program consisting of fixed price swaps for January 2014 through December 2014 of 1,000 barrels of oil per day at a weighted average price of $101.75 hedging Brent as the underlying index and fixed price swaps for October 2013 through March 2016 of 10,000 MCF of natural gas per day at a weighted average price of $4.00.
