Devon Energy Completes Acquisition Of Eagle Ford Assets From GeoSouthern Energy

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) today completed its previously announced acquisition of Eagle Ford assets from GeoSouthern Energy. Devon has acquired 82,000 net acres located in DeWitt and Lavaca counties in Texas. This world-class light-oil position is delivering outstanding well results offering some of the highest rate-of-return drilling opportunities in North America.

“Our Eagle Ford acquisition is one of several bold steps we have recently taken to upgrade our portfolio and improve the growth trajectory and profitability of our business,” said John Richels, president and chief executive officer. “We were able to acquire these premier Eagle Ford assets at a price well below our current EBITDA multiple, resulting in immediate accretion to Devon shareholders on virtually every metric, including cash flow per debt-adjusted share.”

Devon plans to invest approximately $1.1 billion in the Eagle Ford this year and will drill more than 200 wells. For its 10 months of ownership in the play this year, the company’s net production is expected to average between 70,000 and 80,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. With the majority of Devon’s Eagle Ford acreage derisked, this opportunity provides low-risk, repeatable oil growth for years to come.

Devon Energy Corporation is an Oklahoma City-based independent energy company engaged in oil and gas exploration and production. Devon is a leading U.S.-based independent oil and gas producer and is included in the S&P 500 Index. For additional information, visit www.devonenergy.com.
