PrimeEnergy Corporation Announces Third Quarter Results

The decrease in revenues was primarily due to unrealized gains on oil commodity contracts during the third quarter of 2011 substantially offset in net income with decreased depreciation and depletion expense during 2012. Further, the increase in net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was principally due to the decreased depreciation and depletion expense partially offset by increased lease operating expenses and income tax provisions.

Oil and gas production and the average prices received (excluding gains and losses from derivatives) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were as follows:
