Attorney Advertising. The law firm of Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty by the Board of Directors of Mariner Energy, Inc. (“Mariner” or the “Company”) [NYSE:ME] arising out of the proposed merger agreement between Mariner and Apache Corporation (“Apache”).

On Thursday, April 15, 2010, Apache and Mariner announced that the two companies have entered into a merger agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Mariner stockholders will receive cash of $7.80 and 0.17043 of a share of Apache common stock in exchange for each share of Mariner common stock. Apache may be underpaying for Mariner, thus unlawfully harming Mariner shareholders.
