Rita Whittington, COO of Magnolia, said, "Our well count continues to rise. We
now have interests in 105 producing wells in proven onshore US formations such
as the Bakken, North Dakota, and the Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma. Our pipeline
of new wells is currently growing at a faster rate than those that are coming
into production and as a result, with 17 wells drilling and a further 17
waiting to spud, we expect the strong momentum behind Magnolia to continue. As
our participation in drilling activity increases, we are confident we will see
further strong growth in our 3P reserves, which were valued at US$94 million as
at 1 January 2013 in the recent Competent Person's Report."
