Mr. Wolf also serves on the boards of MarkWest Hydrocarbons, Inc. and Aspect Resources LLC.

Ron Greene, Chairman of the Board, stated, "We wish to publicly thank Bill Price, Carrie Wheeler and the other members of the Texas Pacific Group for their contribution to the Company during the last eight years. The Texas Pacific Group, led by Mr. Bonderman and Mr. Price, has been instrumental in our success. Their broad business experience and acumen have brought significant guidance and direction to Denbury's board at a crucial time in the Company's evolution to becoming a significant player in the independent sector.

"I look forward to the contribution that Don Wolf's long history of hands-on experience in the industry will bring to the stewardship of Denbury as the company moves into its next stage of growth as a focused and disciplined growth Company."
