Operating leases

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had contracts for two horizontal drilling rigs (the “Cactus 1 Rig” and “Cactus 2 Rig”). The contract terms of the Cactus 1 Rig and Cactus 2 Rig will end in July 2018 and August 2018, respectively. The rig lease agreements include early termination provisions that obligate the Company to pay reduced minimum rentals pursuant to a “standby” day rate for the term of the agreement. These payments would be reduced assuming the lessor is able to re-charter the rig and staffing personnel to another lessee. In January 2016, the Company decided to place its Cactus 1 Rig on standby and is required to pay a “standby” day rate of $15,000 per day, pursuant to the terms of the agreement,  allowing the Company to retain the option to return the rig to service under the contract terms.
