12:16 EDTGSTGastar Exploration says total depth reached for first Utica/Point Pleasant well
Gastar Exploration reported that it has reached total depth on the vertical pilot hole for its first Utica/Point Pleasant well in Marshall County, West Virginia. The Simms 5-UH well was drilled to a total depth of 11,410 feet and encountered approximately 92 net feet of pay in the Point Pleasant formation with measured porosities up to 17%. Gastar expects estimated formation pressures to be approximately 9,400 psi upon completion of the well. Gastar is currently plugging back the well in order to drill a 4,200 foot horizontal section in the Point Pleasant formation. After drilling the lateral, a 23-stage completion is planned followed by a three week "soaking" of the well with first production expected in late August. Gastar's President and CEO, J. Russell Porter, commented, "These results have confirmed our expectations regarding the Utica/Point Pleasant formation. As a result of this information, and the Utica/Point Pleasant results reported by other nearby operators, we are planning to move forward with a program that should rapidly de-risk this asset and add substantial net asset value to Gastar."

07:06 EDTGSTGastar Exploration provides operational update for Utica and Mid-Continent
The Simms U-5H well in Marshall County, West Virginia, Gastar's first Utica/Point Pleasant well, produced at an initial 48-hour gross sales rate of 29.4 MMcf/d of natural gas on a 30/64ths choke with approximately 6,700 psi of flowing casing pressure. The well lateral length is 4,447 feet and was completed with 25 hydraulic fracturing stages that used approximately 10.6 million pounds of sand proppant. Gastar has a 50% working interest in the Simms U-5H well. In the area of mutual interest during the third quarter of 2014, five gross non-operated horizontal wells have been placed on flow back, five gross wells are awaiting completion and four gross wells are being drilled. Early average production rates for these non-operated wells appear to be on trend with our projected AMI average type curve. the company anticipates an additional three gross wells will be placed on flow back before the end of the third quarter of 2014 and an additional seven to nine gross wells will be placed on production in the fourth quarter of 2014.
