Gulfport Energy Corp Announces Acquisition of Additional Utica Acreage


Thursday, 20 Dec 2012 09:30am EST 

Gulfport Energy Corp announced its agreement to acquire additional working interests in the Utica Shale. Gulfport previously announced that on December 17, 2012 it entered into a definitive agreement to purchase approximately 30,000 net acres in the Utica Shale in Eastern Ohio for approximately $302 million. The parties have now amended that agreement to provide for Gulfport's acquisition of approximately 7,000 additional net acres for approximately $70 million, resulting in a total acquisition price of approximately $372 million. The transaction, which will increase Gulfport's leasehold interests in the Utica Shale to approximately 137,000 gross (106,000 net) acres, excludes 14 existing wells, along with certain acreage surrounding each well. The proposed transaction is expected to close prior to year-end. Gulfport will continue to serve as operator of its acreage in the Utica Shale. The transaction was approved by a special committee of Gulfport's Board of Directors, which engaged independent financial advisors and counsel to assist with its review. Gulfport intends to fund this acquisition with a portion of the net proceeds from its common stock offering that priced on December 18, 2012. That offering is expected to close on December 24, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions.
