Leases [Abstract]  
Nature of Leases
The Company has operating leases associated with drilling rig commitments, field offices and other equipment with remaining lease terms with contractual durations in excess of one year. Short-term leases that have an initial term of one year or less are not capitalized.
The Company has entered into contracts for drilling rigs with third parties to ensure rig availability in its key operating areas. The Company has concluded its drilling rig contracts are operating leases as the assets are identifiable and the evaluation that the Company has the right to control the identified assets. The Company's drilling rig commitments are typically structured with an initial term of one to two years and expire at various dates through 2020. These agreements typically include renewal options at the end of the initial term. Due to the nature of the Company's drilling schedules and potential volatility in commodity prices, the Company is unable to determine at commencement with reasonable certainty if the renewal options will
be exercised; therefore, renewal options are not considered in the lease term for drilling contracts. The operating lease liabilities associated with these rig commitments are based on the minimum contractual obligations, primarily standby rates, and do not include variable amounts based on actual activity in a given period. The Company has also entered into several drilling rig commitments with an initial term less than one year. The costs for these short-term rig commitments are included in the short-term lease cost for the period as shown below. Pursuant to the full cost method of accounting, these costs are capitalized as part of oil and natural gas properties on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. A portion of these costs are borne by other interest owners.
Effective October 1, 2014, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Master Services Agreement for pressure pumping services with Stingray Pressure Pumping LLC (“Stingray Pressure”), a subsidiary of Mammoth Energy and a related party. Pursuant to this agreement, as amended effective July 1, 2018, Stingray Pressure has agreed to provide hydraulic fracturing, stimulation and related completion and rework services to the Company through 2021 and the Company has agreed to pay Stingray Pressure a monthly service fee plus the associated costs of the services provided. As discussed further in Note 9, the Company has terminated its Master Services Agreement for pressure pumping with Stingray Pressure. As a result, in the first quarter of 2020, Gulfport has removed the related right of use assets and lease liabilities associated with the terminated contract.
The Company rents office space for its field locations and certain other equipment from third parties, which expire at various dates through 2024. These agreements are typically structured with non-cancelable terms of one to five years. The Company has determined these agreements represent operating leases with a lease term that equals the primary non-cancelable contract term. The Company has included any renewal options that it has determined are reasonably certain of exercise in the determination of the lease terms.
Discount Rate
As most of the Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The Company's incremental borrowing rate reflects the estimated rate of interest that it would pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment.
