Gary Hanna, the Company's President and CEO, commented, "This change in our name reinforces the transformation we have made in the recent years. For some time, we have generally been referred to as "EPL" in the industry, so this was a natural next step. The name change also eliminates any possible confusion as to our status as a corporation, as opposed to an MLP. This new name allows us to promote that awareness and gives us a fresh perspective as we continue our focused acquire and exploit strategy in the Gulf of Mexico and gulf coast region."
