  • In the Mississippian Lime play in Oklahoma, the company brought seven wells online within its Sinopec joint venture acreage in the fourth quarter of 2012. Initial 30-day production from these wells averaged approximately 335 Boe per day, including 210 barrels of oil per day. Devon has a 57 percent working interest in these wells.
  • Net production from Devon’s Jackfish 1 and Jackfish 2 oil sands projects averaged a record 49,000 barrels of oil per day in the fourth quarter of 2012. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, this represents a 15 percent increase in production.

  • In the Cana-Woodford Shale play, Devon established production from 29 operated wells in the fourth quarter. The average 30-day initial production rate was 6.5 million cubic feet of gas equivalent per day, including 135 barrels of oil per day and 420 barrels of natural gas liquids per day.
  • Fourth quarter production from the company’s Cana-Woodford Shale averaged 326 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day. Fourth-quarter liquids production increased 68 percent compared to the prior-year quarter to 18,000 barrels per day. Liquids now account for 32 percent of Devon’s net production from the play.
  • Net daily production in the Barnett Shale averaged 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day during the fourth quarter of 2012. Liquids production increased 3 percent year-over-year to 48,000 barrels per day.

Proved Oil Reserves Exhibit Robust Growth
