Halcon Provides Tuscaloosa Marine Shale ("TMS") Operational Update And Announces TMS Development Partnership

HOUSTON, TEXAS, June 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Halcón Resources Corporation (NYSE: HK) ("Halcón" or the "Company") today provided an operational update related to its 314,000 net acre position in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale ("TMS").

The Horseshoe Hill 11-22H-1 (92% WI) well in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, achieved a 24-hour average initial production rate of 1,208 barrels of oil per day and 1.1 million cubic feet per day of 1,551 BTU natural gas on a 19/64 inch choke.  Based on gas composition analysis and assuming full ethane recovery, the Company estimates that the well would produce an additional 212 barrels of NGLs per day for a total 24-hour average initial production rate of 1,548 barrels of oil equivalent per day.  The well has a 7,060' effective lateral and was completed with 24 frac stages, 21 of which were effectively pumped and 3 of which were partially pumped (less proppant placed than designed).  Halcón drilled this well in 39 days (spud to TD).

The Company has drilled the Black Stone 4H-2 (87% WI) well in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, in 28 days (spud to TD) with a 5,400' lateral.  Completion operations are expected to commence this month.

Halcón recently spudded the Fassman 9H-1 (84% WI), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, with a second rig and is planning a 6,030' lateral for this well.

The Company has also spudded the SD Smith 1H (62% WI), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, and is planning a 7,660' lateral for this well. 

Halcón plans to spud 10 to 12 operated wells in the TMS running an average of two rigs in 2014.  The Company also expects to participate in 15 to 20 non-operated TMS wells in 2014.

In addition, Halcón announced the signing of a definitive agreement with credit funds and accounts managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, "Apollo"), which will invest up to $400 million in the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, HK TMS, LLC ("HK TMS").  Upon closing, HK TMS will hold all of Halcón's acreage in Mississippi and Louisiana that is prospective for the TMS formation.  The Company holds 100% of the common shares of HK TMS and is the sole manager of HK TMS.  Apollo will contribute $150 million in cash consideration for 150,000 of HK TMS preferred shares, and under certain circumstances, may acquire up to an additional 250,000 preferred shares of HK TMS on the same terms.  Holders of the HK TMS preferred shares will receive quarterly cash dividends of 8% per annum.
