In addition, MEMP provided an update of its commodity hedge positions presented in the Hedge Summary Table below along with previously announced full-year 2013 guidance.

Key Second Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Raised aggregate net proceeds of $390.1 million, after financing costs, through senior unsecured notes offerings in April and May 2013; proceeds were used to repay borrowings outstanding under MEMP's revolving credit facility.
  • Strengthened commodity hedge portfolio, with 87% of current expected natural gas production hedged through year-end 2013 and approximately 79% hedged in 2014 and 2015 (69% hedged through 2019) and 83% of crude oil production hedged through year-end 2013 and approximately 73% hedged in 2014 and 2015 (67% hedged through 2018).

"MEMP continues to execute on its strategy of acquiring and developing mature, long-lived oil and gas properties. Since January of this year, we have announced two acquisitions for a total of $806 million and we continue to deliver strong operational results," said John Weinzierl, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Memorial Production Partners GP LLC, the general partner of MEMP. "These acquisitions add to a great asset base of conventional, low risk oil and gas production as well as enhance our scale in our core area of East Texas and add geographic diversity through the Permian Basin and the Rockies. Operationally, we had a very good second quarter as we grew our production, lowered operating costs and increased our distribution coverage ratio."
