Comstock Resources Inc. Revised Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Fiscal 2015; Provides Operating Guidance for the Fiscal 2015; Provides Update on Haynesville Shale Program

Comstock Resources Inc. announced that it will reduce its 2015 capital spending plan by approximately 22% to $248 million, a savings of over $69 million versus its previously announced budget on December 18, 2014. In addition to seeing improving drilling and completion costs, the recent success of the company's first Haynesville shale refrac will allow the company to release one of its operated rigs drilling in the Haynesville shale at the end of March. As a result, the company now plans to spend $95 million and drill nine (8.3 net) long lateral new wells in the Haynesville shale during 2015. The company now plans to spend $23 million on 14 Haynesville refracs. There are no other significant changes to the 2015 capital program. The company will incur a $2.4 million early termination fee on the released rig. Comstock's first refrac well in the Haynesville, the Pace #33, is currently flowing at 4 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas on a 22/64-inch choke. Before the refrac, the well had been flowing at 0.5 MMcf/d. Following the refrac, the well experienced an eight-fold increase in flowrate and a three-fold increase in flowing pressure. Total cost for the refrac of the well was approximately $2 million. The company expects to achieve cost reductions on future refrac projects of 10% to 15% below the costs for the Pace #33, and estimates internal rates of return of 40% to 69% on the refrac program assuming natural gas prices of $3.00 to $3.50 per 1000 cubic feet. The company has identified approximately 185 future Haynesville refrac candidates. Comstock is also studying potential oil well refrac candidates on its Eagle Ford shale properties in South Texas. In the new Haynesville shale extended lateral drilling program, comstock has reached total depth for the first three wells, the Pyle #6-7, Shahan #5-8, and Boggess #5-8, and has recently spudded the Horn 8-17 #2. Completion operations on the Pyle #6-7 will begin this week. Completed well costs for the first four wells are expected to be below $11 million with further cost reductions expected later this year. Based on the new capital budget, the company now estimates that 2015 natural gas production will average between 130 to 155 MMcf/d. 2015 oil production is still expected to average between 9,500 to 10,500 barrels per day.
