Scoop Play Pays Off For Gulfport Energy, Casillas Petroleum

Gulfport Energy has been a player in the dry gas-rich Utica since 2012, but around 2016 the company strategically decided to secure acreage that had the potential for a little more liquid.

Oklahoma’s Scoop play seemed a natural fit. Two years later it certainly seems the Scoop gamble has been a profitable decision for Gulfport Energy.

In the Scoop there is slightly more exposure to liquids. The return on the wells has been very competitive to Gulfport’s Utica asset and in some cases is outperforming some of the company’s dry gas Scoop oil.
