Proceeds from the sale of non-core oil and natural gas assets were $21.7 million.
Contract drilling segment constructing its 11th BOSS drilling rig under long-term contract.
Midstream segment operating profit increased 11% over the fourth quarter of 2017.
April redetermination of Unit’s borrowing base amount resulted in a decrease from $475 million to $425 million due to the sale of the 50% interest in Superior and the release of Superior as a borrower and co-obligor under the credit agreement.

Unit recorded net income of $7.9 million for the quarter, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $15.9 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of 2017. Adjusted net income (which excludes the effect of non-cash commodity derivatives) for the quarter was $11.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, as compared to $0.15 per diluted share for the same quarter for 2017, a 40% increase (see Non-GAAP financial measures below).
