DENVER – (May 16, 2017) – P2 Energy Solutions announced today that Gastar Exploration Inc., a leading producer in the STACK (Sooner-Trend-Anadarko-Canadian-Kingfisher) play in central Oklahoma, has selected P2 Land and P2 Reporting to better manage its acreage position and make more profitable drilling decisions.

“Because the STACK consists of several reservoirs ‘stacked’ on top of one another, we need to be able to administer what we own in each of the five formations,” said Henry Hansen, Gastar’s Vice President of Land. “Not only that, but acreage values in the STACK have increased dramatically in recent years, so we want to be sure we’re always making the most cost-effective drilling decisions. P2 Land will display all our leases on its embedded map, which will enable us to visualize our operations and answer the questions ‘When are these leases going to expire?’ and ‘To save the most money, in what order should we drill them?’ That’s critical.”

Gastar, which holds a 62,400-net-acre position in the STACK, one of the most coveted oil and gas plays in North America, will use P2 Reporting to generate the multi-formation acreage reports needed to get a more granular look at its assets. “P2 Reporting is going to save us a significant amount of time when it comes to generating reports,” Hansen added. Additionally, with P2 Reporting’s real-time dashboard, everyone at Gastar – the management, geology, land and finance teams – will have the latest information on the status of the company’s assets in front of them.

Said Erik Schneider, who oversees P2’s land and accounting solutions as a Senior Vice President of Product Management: “We’re excited to support Gastar as it upgrades and expands its P2 Oil & Gas software footprint to take advantage of the latest functionality available across the Platform.”

P2 QuickStart, a software deployment and configuration standard that minimizes companies’ time to value, allowed the project to be delivered on time and on budget.
