Denbury Announces Closing of Rocky Mountain Property Acquisition

Announces Date for First Quarter 2013 Results News Release and Conference Call

PLANO, Texas, March 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc.
(NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced the closing of its
acquisition of producing property interests in the Cedar Creek Anticline
("CCA") of Montana and North Dakota from a wholly-owned subsidiary of
ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) for cash consideration of $1.05 billion before
purchase price adjustments. The acquired assets include additional interests
in certain of Denbury's existing operated fields in CCA along with operating
interests in other CCA fields. The Company estimates the final adjusted
purchase price will be closer to $1.0 billion after adjustment for the net
cash flows from the assets between the January 1, 2013 effective date and the
closing date. The purchase was part of a like-kind exchange transaction that
was funded with a portion of the cash received from the Company's Bakken sale
and asset exchange with ExxonMobil completed in December 2012.

As previously announced, Denbury estimates the acquired properties will
contribute approximately 7,700 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOE/d") to
its full-year 2013 average daily production, which reflects estimated average
daily production of about 10,200 BOE/d for the remainder of the year.
Approximately 99% of this production is estimated to be oil and natural gas
liquids. With closing occurring as scheduled, the Company's full-year 2013
annual production estimates remain unchanged at the levels shown in the
following table:

Operating Area                2013 Estimated
                              Production (BOE/d)
Tertiary                      36,500 – 39,500
Cedar Creek Anticline         16,200
Other Rockies Non-Tertiary    5,400
Texas Non-Tertiary            6,300
Other Gulf Coast Non-Tertiary 4,300
Total Production              68,700 – 71,700
