SandRidge to acquire Dynamic Offshore

By OGJ editors

SandRidge Energy Inc., Oklahoma City, will acquire private Houston independent Dynamic Offshore Resources LLC for $1.275 billion including $680 million in cash and 74 million SandRidge common shares.

SandRidge said Dynamic had 62.5 million bbl of oil equivalent proved reserves, 80% proved developed, and production of 25,000 boe/d at yearend 2011 in less than 300 ft of water in the Gulf of Mexico. About 50% of the reserves and production are oil.

SandRidge said it expects the Dynamic operations to “contribute significant free cash flow in excess of the anticipated annual drilling and recompletion capital budget of $200 million.” Closing is set for this year’s second quarter.

Meanwhile, SandRidge said its 2011 yearend proved reserves were up 11% to 471 million boe, including oil reserves that increased 17% to 245 million bbl. The company’s oil production was up 60% as total production grew 16% to 23.4 million boe.

SandRidge is producing 67,000 boe/d. The company said estimated ultimate recovery from its horizontal Mississippian wells has increased 11% to 456 million boe/well.

The company drilled 167 Mississippian horizontal wells in northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas last year and has 21 rigs drilling horizontal production wells there and 3 rigs drilling salt water disposal wells. It plans to add 1 rig/month in 2012 and drill 380 wells.

SandRidge drilled 803 wells in the Permian basin in 2011 and is now running 13 rigs on the Central Basin Platform mainly drilling Grayburg/San Andres vertical wells at 4,500-7,500 ft. It plans to drill 759 Permian basin wells in 2012.

Better Data, Better Analytics, Better Decisions

When Tue, Oct 27, 2015

The Oil & Gas industry has large amounts of data stored in multiple systems which are purpose built for certain tasks. However, good decisions require insights based upon the data in all of these systems. These systems in turn do not talk to each other. So the process of analyzing data, gaining insights, and making decisions is a slow one and often a flawed one. Good decisions require accurate analytics and accurate analytics require superior/sustainable data quality and governance. This webinar focuses on:

  • The importance of data quality and governance
  • How technological advances are making data quality and governance sustainable in order to get the accurate analytics to make solid decisions.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
