May 25, 2012, 14:00 ET from NFR Energy LLC

HOUSTON, May 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NFR Energy LLC today announced it has revised its full year 2012 guidance. David Sambrooks, NFR Chief Executive Officer, commented: "In clear recognition and response to the current natural gas price environment, NFR has revised its 2012 capital budget and operational plans to further reduce capital expenditures directed towards dry gas type projects. This capital reduction allows for some re-allocation to our new liquids rich projects, while further enhancing our liquidity position."

The Company's revised full year 2012 guidance is as follows:

Production & Operating Expense:

Previous Projections

Updated Projections

Total Operating Expense ($ / Mcfe)







Capital Activity:

The revised 2012 capital budget has been set at approximately $120 - $135 million.  Drilling and completion capital is now expected to be approximately $100 million of the 2012 capital budget (compared to previous guidance of $130 million).  The Company's revised capital budget reflects plans to run one rig in 2012 and focus activity on drilling Cotton Valley horizontals and the completion of a number of drilled wells that were in inventory at December 31, 2011.  The remaining portion of the capital budget will be directed towards new venture projects targeting oil opportunities, including the Company's previously discussed Eagle Ford farm-in and DK/East Texas new venture acreage.  The 2012 capital program is flexible and may be adjusted throughout the year in response to the success of the Company's new venture activities.


NFR Energy LLC is a privately‐held natural gas and oil company based in Houston, Texas. The Company's current operations are principally located in East Texas, with production from the Haynesville Shale and Cotton Valley Sand formations.
