Eureka Hunter Announces New Record Throughput Volumes of ~700,000 MMBtu Per Day

IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2015) - Eureka Hunter Pipeline, LLC ("Eureka Hunter"), a company in which Magnum Hunter Resources Corporation (NYSE: MHR) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRC) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRD) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRE) ("Magnum Hunter" or the "Company") owns a substantial equity interest, announced today that throughput volumes on Eureka Hunter's gas gathering pipeline system located in West Virginia and Ohio, have now reached a new record high of over 700,000 MMBtu per day on Thursday, July 2, 2015.

Magnum Hunter Management Comments

Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter and Eureka Hunter, commented, "The calculated risks and subsequent capital resources that were deployed over the last year into Eureka Hunter to build out the interconnects (now nine) with the various pipelines located within our area of operation, are proving to be a wise decision. Based upon management projections derived from producer volumes expected for the remainder of 2015, we are anticipating throughput volumes approaching 1.0 Bcf per day on Eureka Hunter by year-end. We believe the continued dramatic growth in throughput volumes will enable us to receive an optimal price from potential suitors."
