Stone Energy Corporation, an independent oil and natural gas company, is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, exploitation, development, and operation of oil and gas properties. The company has expanded its reserve base outside of the conventional shelf of the Gulf of Mexico (the ‘GOM’) and into the more prolific reserve basins of the GOM deep water and GOM deep gas, as well as onshore oil and gas shale opportunities, including the Marcellus Shale in Appalachia. As of December 31, 2013, its estimated proved oil and natural gas reserves were approximately 864 billion cubic feet of gas equivalent. Properties As of February 25, 2014, the company’s property portfolio consisted of 47 active properties and 123 primary term leases in the Gulf Coast Basin (onshore and offshore), 4 active properties in the Appalachia region, and 1 active property in the Eagle Ford Shale formation and undeveloped acreage in Canada and the Rocky Mountain region. The company serves as operator on 75% of its active properties. GOM — Deep Water: The company made two acquisitions that included two deep water platforms, producing reserves, and various leases.

During 2013, it drilled a total of 30 horizontal Marcellus Shale wells and had 103 wells on production.
