100 Net Upper Wolfcamp Locations Added to Midland Basin Unproved Reserves

Probable and possible reserves at year-end 2012 declined to 407 MMBOE.

In the Delaware Basin, 3 rd Bone Spring reserves west side of the Pecos River were revised down by some 64 MMBOE. Approximately 54 MMBOE of prior-year unproved reserves – primarily in the Delaware and Midland basins – were proved up.

The company added net reserves of approximately 36 MMBOE for 100 net Upper Wolfcamp locations in Glasscock County; this represents gross EURs of 460 MBOE per well assuming 160-acre spacing and 4,400’ horizontal lengths. Energen also gained 18 MMBOE of unproved Wolfberry reserves through acquisition.
