When asked about the company’s 2017 hedging positions at its 2Q16 earnings conference, CPE Chief Financial Officer Joseph Gatto stated: “We’ve added some oil hedges and actually a little bit of gas here recently as well. But historically, we’ve been 50% [or] 60% hedged. We’re about 25%. I think we’ll try to move that up a little bit closer to 35% [or] 40% in the coming months as we get into next year and look to support some cash flows with a three-rig anticipated program.”
