Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. Provides Interim Operations Update

Water disposal and oil and gas lines are being constructed in each of the test areas and should be operational by first production for both projects.            

Current Completion and Production Update Subsequent to Kodiak's last operations update furnished in early December 2012, the Company finished completion operations on 11 gross (8.6 net) wells that are currently in flow-back operations.  Throughout December 2012, several producing wells were shut-in for reservoir pressure maintenance during completion operations of the offsetting wells.

The Company expects fourth quarter 2012 average daily oil and gas sales volumes to be approximately 19,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/d), assuming a constant rate of non-operated production.  During December and again assuming constant non-operated production, the peak daily oil and gas sales rate achieved was approximately 26,000 BOE/d and the peak production rate was approximately 29,000 BOE/d. 

As previously announced, for the full-year 2013, Kodiak projects average oil and gas sales volumes of 29,000 to 31,000 BOE/d, based upon the activities contemplated under its $775 million 2013 CAPEX budget.  This production level would represent over 80% sales volumes growth over 2012.  The projected exit rate for 2013 sales volumes is expected to range from 38,000 to 40,000 BOE/d. 

Management Comment Commenting on ongoing operations, Kodiak's Chairman and CEO Lynn A. Peterson said:  "Execution of our drilling and completion schedule remains on track.  Our average spud to total depth drilling days is approaching 20 days per well which helps to reduce our completed well costs.  Our completion operations are running smoothly with the two dedicated crews.  As expected, we are experiencing colder winter weather, which can slow some completion activity; however, the team continues to make good progress.  We ended 2012 with sales and production volumes in line with our expectations and look forward to continued growth in 2013."
