On May 2, 2017, the Colorado Oil and Gas Commission issued a Notice to Operators (NTO) to verify the location of all flowlines associated with operated wells and the integrity of those flowlines. SRC has completed all field work associated with the NTO and will file the required paperwork regarding its operations ahead of the June 30, 2017 deadline.

Management Comment

Lynn A. Peterson, Chairman and CEO of SRC commented, "As we progress through the second quarter, our team continues to execute SRC's two-rig development plan with impressive efficiency. SRC's acreage offers competitive returns when compared to other U.S. onshore shale plays. We now have 90 days of production for the first two tranches of Evans wells. The first tranche appears to have plateaued after 90 days of production but the second tranche, all of which are two and a half mile laterals, is continuing to ramp up at pressure managed rates even after 90 days. The Evans pads were an exciting test of our team's capabilities and we are very pleased with the initial performance. We intend to report results from the remaining two tranches in addition to the Weideman Pad when they have each accumulated 90 days of production history." Mr. Peterson also remarked, "SRC expects to satisfy all requirements from the Notice to Operators in advance of the deadlines with very little impact to our ongoing operations. We will continue with our ongoing plugging program to eliminate legacy vertical wells operated by SRC."
