Forest Oil Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

Net Sales Volumes, Average Realized Prices, and Revenues

Forest's net sales volumes for the three months ended June 30, 2012 were unchanged from the corresponding 2011 period and decreased 1% from the first quarter of 2012. Net sales volumes were negatively impacted by 8 MMcfe/d in the second quarter of 2012 due primarily to downtime associated with a fire at Eagle Rock’s Phoenix-Arrington Ranch natural gas processing facility in Hemphill County, Texas. The facility returned to operations on July 3, 2012. The following table details the components of net sales volumes, average realized prices, and revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012:
