Energy XXI Provides Operations Update, Hosts Fourth Annual Investor Day

The Lineham Creek exploration prospect (9% WI/ 6.75% NRI), located onshore in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, has reached total depth in the sidetrack wellbore at 24,600 feet. The results of the well are under review, and Freeport McMoRan Oil and Gas plans to propose a completion operation in the sands above 24,000 feet under the Operating Agreement.

The Lomond North prospect (18% WI/ 13% NRI) in the Highlander area, located primarily in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, is drilling below 26,800 feet toward a proposed total depth of 30,000 feet. The well is targeting Lower Wilcox and Cretaceous objectives below the salt weld. Lomond North is approximately 65 miles north of the partnership's Davy Jones discovery. 

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2014, which began July 1, 2013, are now estimated at $675 million. The additional $15 million over the previously announced budget are due to the reclassification of certain general and administrative costs as capitalized costs, and therefore do not affect free cash flow expectations.

Annual Investor Day

Energy XXI will host an investor day in New York tomorrow, Oct. 23, 2013, beginning with a presentation at 9 a.m. Eastern time by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Schiller. Information regarding webcasting will be available on the Energy XXI homepage ( www.EnergyXXI.com ) in the Investor Relations, Events & Presentations section.
