Callon Petroleum Company Reports Results For Third Quarter, First Nine Months Of 2011

Callon continued: “Our deepwater offshore fields continue to deliver positive results with minimal reinvestment requirements, generating free cash flow for reinvestment into onshore growth opportunities. We remain committed to the transformation of our asset base and believe the robust cash flow from our deepwater properties will continue to provide a strong source of funding for this change. Planned incremental recompletions and step-out opportunities at our two deepwater assets will leverage existing infrastructure. Importantly, approximately 70% of our offshore production is crude oil and has recently benefited from premium pricing relative to West Texas Intermediate crude oil benchmark pricing.”

Callon Petroleum ended the third quarter with long-term debt approximately 24% lower than at year-end 2010. Moreover, the company enjoys a strong liquidity position with $48 million in cash and an additional availability of $45 million on its revolving credit facility that is available to pursue growth initiatives.

Operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2011 include oil and gas sales of $33.6 million from average production of 5.3 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (Mboe/d).
