PLATTEVILLE, CO--(Marketwired - October 16, 2014) - Synergy Resources Corporation (NYSE MKT: SYRG), a U.S. oil and gas exploration and production company focused in the Greater Wattenberg Area of the Denver-Julesburg Basin, announces that its proved reserve evaluation for the 2014 fiscal year ending 8/31/2014 increased 133% to 32.2mm/BOE compared to 13.8mm/BOE for fiscal year end 8/31/2013 and the PV10 value of the proved reserves increased 126% to $534 million from $236 million. Proved developed producing and proved developed non-producing (behind pipe) assets accounted for 61% of the value of the reserves while the remaining value is proved undeveloped reserves. The volume of the reserves is split evenly between oil and natural gas which includes the natural gas liquids.

These new wells will contribute to proved developed reserves for our fiscal 2015 mid-year reserve report. We continue to work with Ryder Scott Company, our third party reserve engineers, to account for increased density of horizontal Niobrara and Codell wells in the Wattenberg Field."
