Randy Olmstead, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Mid-Con Energy continues to focus on our core strength in waterflooding through increasing injection and prioritizing the long term life of our floods. In 2013, our existing properties provided stable cash flow to our unitholders, and we are pleased to announce the first 'drop-down' acquisition of properties from our affiliate, Mid-Con Energy III, LLC, with properties in our Hugoton and Southern Oklahoma core areas. The acquired properties fit in our portfolio of assets with low decline rates and upside potential. We expect these acquired properties to support our strategy and look forward to continued increased production and cash flow in 2014."
