HOUSTON -- January 18, 2013

LRR Energy, L.P. (NYSE: LRE) (“LRR Energy”) announced today that the Board of
Directors of its general partner declared an increased cash distribution for
the fourth quarter of 2012 of $0.4800 per outstanding unit, or $1.92 on an
annualized basis. The distribution will be paid on February 14, 2013, to all
unitholders of record as of the close of business on January 30, 2013.

2013 Guidance

Based on current estimates, and assuming no future acquisitions, our 2013
guidance is as follows:

                                                 2013 Guidance
              Daily Production (Boe/d)           6,200 - 6,500
              LOE ($/Boe)                        $10.00 - $10.50
              Capital Expenditures ($MM)         $26

The guidance above sets forth management’s best estimate based on current and
anticipated market conditions and other factors. While we believe that these
estimates and assumptions are reasonable, they are inherently uncertain and
are subject to, among other things, significant business, economic,
regulatory, environmental and competitive risks and uncertainties that could
cause actual results to differ materially from those we anticipate, as set
forth under “Forward-Looking Statements.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" — that is, statements
related to future events. Forward-looking statements are based on the current
expectations of LRR Energy and include any statement that does not directly
relate to a current or historical fact. In this context, forward-looking
statements often address expected future business and financial performance,
and often contain words such as "may," "predict," "pursue," "expect,"
"estimate," "project," "plan," "believe," "intend," "achievable,"
"anticipate," "target," "continue," "potential," "should," "could" and other
similar words. Actual results and future events could differ materially from
those anticipated or implied in such statements. Forward-looking statements
involve certain risks and uncertainties, and ultimately may not prove to be
accurate. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, a decline
in oil, natural gas or NGL prices, the risk and uncertainties involved in
producing oil and natural gas, competition in the oil and natural gas
industry, governmental regulations and other factors. Actual results could
differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking
statements due to the factors described under the captions "Risk Factors" in
LRR Energy's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011
and LRR Energy's subsequent filings with the SEC. All forward-looking
statements speak only as of the date of this press release. LRR Energy does
not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements as a result of
new information, future events or otherwise. All forward-looking statements
are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
