"These new assets provide us with expanded opportunities to leverage our low cost operating infrastructure and Eagle Ford and Woodbine technical expertise to create value. We continue to seek additional similar opportunities to acquire quality assets to add to our East Texas position. We plan to operate these new assets with the same uncompromising approach to safety, the environment, and community relations that we have employed since we commenced operations in East Texas in July 2014."
