Goodrich Petroleum Buda Lime Well Results Impress

In Goodrich Petroleum’s operations update from the second quarter, the company announced impressive well results from a horizontal Buda Lime well. The well came on at almost 1,400 barrels of oil per day and 1.5 mmcfd. The well averaged 1,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day over the first 30 days. At $75 oil that $2.25 million in first month. Subtract royalties and operating costs and your looking at a pretty quick payout. Possibly, 3-4 months. That’s a good well!  

The Company has completed its third Buda Lime well, the Carnes 6H (67% WI) well, an unstimulated 3,100 foot lateral, at a 24-hour initial production rate of 1,635 BOE per day, comprised of 1,380 barrels of oil and 1,535 Mcf per day. The well averaged 1,000 BOE per day over the first thirty days, and had an estimated completed well cost of less than $3.0 million.

The Company has two rigs running full time drilling Eagle Ford Shale and Buda Limewells. For the remainder of 2011, the Company currently anticipates drilling 5 gross (3.5 net) Eagle Ford Shale wells on the southern half and 8 gross (5.5 net) Buda Limewells on the northern half of the Company’s approximate 40,000 net acre block.
