Pure-Play STACK Operator

Alta Mesa has assembled over 120,000 contiguous net acres and about 4,200 gross identified drilling locations in the STACK which can deliver returns through any cycle.

The STACK is among the lowest cost basins in the U.S. with asset quality comparable to the Permian. Alta Mesa is an efficient operator with a proven track record and focus on continuous improvement. We have worked diligently to reduce the drilling and completion costs per well thru operating and drilling efficiencies. We have more than doubled our STACK acreage position since January 2015 and have drilled to total-depth over 200 STACK horizontal wells in order to further delineate and de-risk our position in the up-dip oil window of the play. Our contiguous acreage positions allow for efficient field development through optimal spacing and pad drilling.
