06:09 EDTGDPGoodrich Petroleum provides operational update
Goodrich Petroleum reports in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, or TMS, the company announced the completion of two additional wells in its Blades area of Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana. The Verberne 5H-1 well, which was drilled and completed with an approximate lateral length of 6,600 feet and was fracked with 21 stages, has been producing on a restricted choke program and has achieved a peak 24-hour rate to date of 1,375 Boe per day, comprised of 1,335 barrels of oil and 250 Mcf of natural gas per day on a 14/64 inch choke. The Williams 46H-1 well, which was drilled with an approximate lateral length of 6,400 feet and was fracked with 20 stages, is in early flowback and is currently producing approximately 1,000 Boe per day, but has not achieved peak rate. An update on this well will be provided at a later date. The company is in completion phase on its Kent 41H-1 well, which was drilled with an approximate 6,000 foot lateral in 27 days at one of the lowest drilling cost to date. On the company's initial two-well pad, the CMR/Foster Creek 8H-1 has been drilled and the CMR/Foster Creek 8H-2 well is drilling in the lateral. By achieving drill times of 25 30 days, as achieved by several industry-wide wells including our most recent Kent 41H-1 well, coupled with the recently modified frac design as utilized on the Verberne 5H-1 and Williams 46H-1 wells, the company believes it can achieve cost savings in excess of $1.5 million for a single well pad prior to any reduction in service costs or savings associated with drilling off of multi-well pads. Substantial cost savings combined with the company's strong 2015 hedge position, and the inherent advantages of the TMS, which include premium LLS pricing, lower average royalty burden and severance tax relief, allow for the continued economic development of the play in 2015.

09:07 EDTETREntergy agrees to buy Union Power Station for $948M
Entergy announced that its subsidiaries, Entergy Arkansas, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, and Entergy Texas have signed an agreement to acquire the Union Power Station near El Dorado, Arkansas. The station is owned by Union Power Partners, L.P., an independent power producer and wholly-owned by Entegra TC LLC. The Union Power Station, which entered commercial service in 2003, consists of four combined-cycle gas-fired generating units, or CCGTs, each rated at 495 MW. Under the Asset Purchase Agreement, Entergy Arkansas and Entergy Texas have each agreed to acquire one unit and Entergy Gulf States Louisiana has agreed to acquire two units. Entergy New Orleans will receive 20 percent of the output from the Entergy Gulf States Louisiana units via an at-cost purchase power agreement, subject to City Council of New Orleans approval. The plant purchase price is $948M, or $237M per unit, subject to adjustments. The purchase price is approximately half the cost to build a comparable new CCGT facility. The purchase is contingent upon, among other things, obtaining necessary approvals, including acceptable cost recovery, from the various federal and state regulatory authorities and the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust law. The targeted closing date is late 2015. The total investment associated with this proposed plant acquisition, including the amounts associated with the purchase price, transaction costs, contingency and future investment in the plant and transmission upgrades, was generically included in the previously disclosed preliminary 2015 through 2017 capital plan for Entergy and the affected subsidiaries. In addition, the estimated earnings implications were reflected in the financial outlook of approximately 5%-7% compound annual average net income growth through 2017 (off 2013 base year) for the Utility business. Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including more than 10,000 megawatts of nuclear power, making it one of the nation's leading nuclear generators. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.8 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy has annual revenues of more than $11 billion and approximately 14,000 employees.
