EP Energy ■ 173,110 net acres in the Uinta Basin ■ 91,675 net acres in the Eagle Ford EP Energy operates exclusively in the U.S. in the Altamont, Eagle Ford and Wolfcamp. The company's operations in the Uinta Basin are focused on developing the Altamont Field, which includes the Altamont, Bluebell and Cedar Rim fields. EP Energy owns 173,110 net acres in Duch- esne and Uinta counties. "Our [Altamont] current activity is mainly focused on the development of our vertical inven- tory on 160-acre spacing. We have identified an inventory of 1,126 drilling locations, including 776 vertical locations and 350 horizontal loca- tions. The industry is currently piloting 80-acre vertical downspacing programs in the Wasatch and Green River formations and horizontal devel- opment programs in the multiple shale and tight sand intervals," the company said on its website. "Because our acreage in the area is largely held by production, if these programs are successful, it will result in additional vertical and horizontal drilling opportunities that could be added to our inventory of drilling locations." In second-quarter 2017 EP Energy completed five gross wells (three net wells) in its Altamont program and produced 12.6 Mbbl/d of oil, a 15% increase compared to the year prior, according to the compa- ny's second-quarter 2017 results report. Total equiv- alent production for second-quarter 2017 was 18 Mboe/d, up 16% from second-quarter 2016. "EP Energy has two drilling rigs in Altamont and continues to benefit from its successful recompletion program," the company said in the report. During the second quarter, the company entered into a new 60-well drilling joint venture (JV) program. For sec- ond-half 2017, the company expected to run two JV drilling rigs and continue its recompletion program. In the Eagle Ford EP Energy has 91,675 net acres, where it has identified 946 drilling locations. In the second quarter, EP Energy completed nine wells in its Eagle Ford program and produced 26.4 Mbbl/d of oil, a 3% decrease compared with second-quarter 2016, according to the report. However, volumes were up 10% from first-quarter 2017. Total equiv- alent production for second-quarter 2017 was 41.5 Mboe/d.

Total equiva- lent production for second-quarter 2017 was 25.4 Mboe/d, according to the report.
