NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy Partners, Ltd. (EPL or the Company) (NYSE:EPL) today announced that it has changed its name to EPL Oil & Gas, Inc. The Company's name change became effective on September 1, 2012, as set out in a filing with the Delaware Secretary of State. The common stock of the Company will continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "EPL." Along with the name change, the Company has adopted a new logo and updated its website ( www.eplweb.com), and, starting September 1 st, all business activity will be conducted under the new name and logo.
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."
