Upcoming PresentationBob Watson, President and CEO of Abraxas, will be presenting at IPAA OGIS Florida on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 10:15 AM ET. A live webcast of this event can be accessed under the Investor Relations section of the Abraxas Petroleum website at www.abraxaspetroleum.com and at http://www.investorcalendar.com/CEPage.asp?ID=172112. Bob Watson, President and CEO of Abraxas, commented, “We could not be more excited with the results of the Blue Eyes 1H and what it implies for the potential on our now approximately 5,700 net acre position at Jourdanton. Furthermore, we have been quite pleased with the well’s performance subsequent to its initial 30 day period. The shallower depth of the wells should also lead to meaningfully lower well costs compared to our recent McMullen County Eagle Ford wells. Currently, we have four additional wells planned at Jourdanton in 2014. “The first quarter of 2014 promises to be catalyst rich for Abraxas with numerous high impact and high working interest wells on the horizon in the Eagle Ford and Bakken. Notably, our long lateral (9,000 foot) Dutch 2H should be turned over to production shortly. We also look forward to updating the market with the results of the Henry 2H and three Jore completions in the near future.” (1) The production rates for each well do not include the impact of natural gas liquids and shrinkage at the processing plant and include flared gas.
