Gulfport Validates More SCOOP Acreage with Sycamore Test

Gulfport Energy Corp.’s latest test results from the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP) indicate the first Sycamore formation well achieved a 24-hour initial production (IP) rate of 15.7 MMcfe/d.

The well was completed with a 5,980-foot lateral, with volumes 70% weighted to natural gas, 19% to natural gas liquids (NGL) and 11% to oil. The Sycamore results come less than one month after Gulfport announced other encouraging results from its first Springer Shale well.

Gulfport’s primary SCOOP target is the Woodford Shale, but the company spud the Springer and Sycamore wells in the second quarter to review its prospects for delineation efforts next year. The Sycamore, sandwiched between the Woodford and Springer, is similar in age to the Meramec and Osage formations that are being developed to the north of Gulfport’s position.

The Serenity 5-22H Sycamore well, drilled in southern Grady County, when normalized to its standard 7,500-foot lateral produced at an IP rate of 19.6 MMcfe/d, Gulfport said.

Results from the first wet gas Woodford well in southern Grady County also were announced. The Winham 7-22H produced at a 24-hour IP rate of 23.4 MMcfe/d, 64% natural gas, 18% NGLs and 18% oil. The well, the best IP rate the company has seen to date in the SCOOP, was completed with a 4,898-foot lateral. When normalized to its standard length, the well produced at an IP rate of 35.8 MMcfe/d.

Gulfport entered the Midcontinent earlier this year in a $1.85 billion deal with Vitruvian II Woodford LLC and brought its first operated wells online shortly after that. The company has 11 wells online, including nine Woodford wells that are mostly located in central and southeast Grady County.
