Management Comments

Kelly Loyd, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are extremely pleased with the ongoing results of both our recent SCOOP/STACK acquisitions and our first three horizontal development wells in Chaveroo. The drilling results at both Chaveroo and SCOOP/STACK confirm the Company's strategy of combining low-risk development drilling with targeted acquisitions of producing properties and our assessed value of the drilling locations. The combination of our existing producing properties and the now substantial inventory of 10+ years of low-risk development locations are projected to support our dividend policy for many years to come while we continue to consider new acquisition opportunities."


Evolution is pleased to report that the integration of its ~3,700 net acres (average working interest of ~3%) from the Company's three most recent acquisitions in the SCOOP/STACK plays in Oklahoma (collectively, the "SCOOP/STACK"), which closed on February 12, 2024, is progressing well. The acquisitions' production and cash flow contributions are expected to impact operational and financial results positively and substantially, beginning with the second half of the Company’s third fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2024.

The Company expects to complete its reserves audit of the SCOOP/STACK acquisitions in late April, which will include proved developed producing reserves and proved undeveloped reserves. The evaluation of proved undeveloped reserves will focus on identifying which of the estimated 275+ technically proved locations in the SCOOP/STACK will be classified as SEC proved undeveloped reserves as a result of the 5-year development timeline mandated by the SEC.

Since November 1, 2023, the effective date of the acquisition, Evolution has participated in the following activities in the SCOOP/STACK:

  • 19 of 21 gross (0.48 of 0.50, net) drilled uncompleted wells (DUCs) have been completed and brought online at the sellers' expense for Evolution's benefit, and
  • Agreed to participate in 15 gross (0.2 net) new horizontal wells across the acreage, 13 of which are currently in progress.


All three horizontal wells in the first development block have been completed and are currently producing (Evolution has a 50% working interest). These first three wells, on average, were drilled and completed within 10% of the pre-drill cost estimates. Based on results to date, the wells have met or exceeded the pre-drill production estimates and will substantially contribute to operating and financial results in the fiscal third quarter and beyond.

Additionally, Evolution plans to participate for its full 50% working interest in the second development block, which consists of 6 horizontal well locations. The Company fully expects to systematically participate in future development blocks, holding in aggregate over 70 additional horizontal well locations. Future acreage costs are fixed at $36,000 per additional net horizontal well, spaced at approximately 160 gross acres per well.
