Gulfport Brings Another Gassy SCOOP Well Online

Gulfport Energy Corp. has turned its third operated well to sales in the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP), reporting an initial production (IP) rate of 18.4 MMcfe/d.

The Pauline 8-27X22H Woodford Shale well was drilled in the wet gas window in central Grady County. Completed with the company’s latest completion design, CEO Michael Moore said it is “exhibiting a strong liquids cut and is performing very well relative to offsets and its type curve.”

Pauline’s 24-hour IP was 51% natural gas, 27% oil and 22% natural gas liquids. Gulfport spud its first Springer Shale and Sycamore formation wells during the second quarter and is in various stages of flowback operations on another five Woodford wells.

The company’s first operated SCOOP wells came online in May. The Vinson 2 has produced 1.1 Bcf of natural gas and 2,639 bbl of oil, while the Vinson 3R has produced 1.3 Bcf of natural gas and 3,040 bbl of oil after 90 days of production. Both are in the wet gas window of southern Grady County.

Gulfport acquired the SCOOP acreage earlier this year with the purchase of Vitruvian II Woodford LLC. Vitruvian drilled the Vinson wells and Gulfport completed them.

Gulfport produced 1.038 Bcfe/d during the second quarter. Ohio’s Utica Shale, where the company has more than 200,000 net acres, accounted for 857.2 MMcfe/d, while the SCOOP contributed 162 MMcfe/d and legacy assets on the Gulf Coast added 18.1 MMcfe/d.

While Gulfport is primarily focused on the Woodford Shale in the SCOOP, it expects to learn more about the Springer Shale and Sycamore in time to build more of those wells into its plans for next year. The company holds 87,700 net reservoir acres in the SCOOP.
