Goodrich Petroleum Announces Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Well Result

Stocks in this article: GDP

HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: GDP) today announced the completion of its CMR-Foster Creek 20-7H-1 (99% WI) well in Wilkinson County, Mississippi. The well was successfully drilled with a 6,200 foot lateral and fracture stimulated with 23 stages but encountered completion issues while drilling out the frac plugs with coiled tubing resulting in the loss of a bottom hole assembly and fishing tools in the well. The Company replaced the coiled tubing unit with a workover rig in an attempt to remove the downhole tools but fishing operations were un-successful. The well was subsequently placed on production from the approximately 2,100 feet of usable and unobstructed lateral.

The well has reached a 24-hour peak production rate of 527 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day, comprised of 500 barrels of oil and 174 Mcf of gas on a 16/64 inch choke from the 2,100 feet of lateral.

The Company is currently drilling the lateral of the Huff 18-7H-1 (97% WI) well in Amite County, Mississippi, with plans to go to two rigs later this month.

The Company currently has in excess of 300,000 net acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.



OTHER INFORMATION

Initial production rates are subject to decline over time and should not be regarded as reflective of sustained production levels.  In particular, production from horizontal drilling in shale gas resource plays and tight gas plays that are stimulated with extensive pressure fracturing are typically characterized by significant early declines in production rates.

Certain statements in this news release regarding future expectations and plans for future activities may be regarded as "forward looking statements" within the meaning of the Securities Litigation Reform Act.  They are subject to various risks, such as financial market conditions, changes in commodities prices and costs of drilling and completion, operating hazards, drilling risks, and the inherent uncertainties in interpreting engineering data relating to underground accumulations of oil and gas, as well as other risks discussed in detail in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.
