CALGARY, Feb. 26, 2013

CALGARY, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Nexen Inc. ("Nexen" or the "Company",
TSX, NYSE: NXY) announced today that, in accordance with the terms of the
indenture (the "Trust Indenture") governing Nexen's outstanding US$460 million
aggregate principal amount of 7.35% Subordinated Notes due 2043 (the
"Subordinated Notes"), Nexen has exercised its right to redeem all of the
outstanding Subordinated Notes for a cash amount equal to $1,000 per $1,000
principal amount of Subordinated Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest up
to, but excluding, the redemption date. Nexen will complete the redemption of
such Subordinated Notes on March 28, 2013 (the "Redemption Date"). Following
the Redemption Date, holders of Subordinated Notes will have no further rights
or entitlements under the Subordinated Notes or the Trust Indenture other than
to receive the redemption price described above. Prior to the Redemption Date,
Nexen will deposit with Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (the "Trustee"),
the trustee under the Trust Indenture, funds sufficient to pay the total
redemption amount payable to holders of redeemed Subordinated Notes.

A redemption notice will be sent to the registered holder of the Subordinated
Notes today by the Trustee.

The Subordinated Notes are listed and traded on the TSX and NYSE under the
symbols NXY.PR.U and NXY.PRB, respectively. Nexen intends to delist the
Subordinated Notes from the TSX and NYSE as soon as possible following the
Redemption Date.
