Magnum Hunter Resources has participated in three new field discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico. The Company estimates that when these new discoveries are placed on production later this year, the combined initial daily production rates should be approximately 36 million cubic feet of gross equivalent production ("MMcfe") or 12 MMcfe net to Magnum Hunter's interest.

Magnum Hunter also operates a development well with a 50% working interest in the Main Pass 263 lease block. This well is scheduled to be on production in the third quarter of this year.

The Vermilion 100 discovery was tested from two wells with a combined gross rate of over 17 MMcfe. Magnum Hunter owns a 40% working interest in this discovery and Remington Oil and Gas is the operator with a 60% working interest.
