Magnum Hunter Management Comments

Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter and Eureka Hunter commented, "These new record throughput volumes on the Eureka Hunter pipeline system, during this period of unprecedented declines in overall drilling activity due to extremely low commodity prices, are a testimony to the resource value not only of this region, but what has been created by the hard work of our management team over the past couple of years. The results from the combination of new interconnects with other pipelines, operational superiority, and exceptional service to existing customers, have allowed for this substantial growth being experienced at Eureka Hunter to continue."
