"The Company's 2018 drilling program generated significant data on well spacing, furthering our subsurface understanding and driving a key strategic shift in our development plan," stated Randy A. Foutch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The resulting 2019 capital program is expected to produce a returns and capital efficiency inflection point for the Company, while also generating high-single digit production growth within operating cash flow. We have already begun to pivot our development plan to emphasize returns by moving to wider well spacing and expect a commensurate long-term improvement in well productivity.
