   Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. : Bonanza Creek Energy Announces Upsizing and
               Pricing of $300 Million Offering of Senior Notes

DENVER, April 4, 2013 - Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (NYSE: BCEI) (the
"Company") announced today that it has priced $300 million in aggregate
principal amount of its 6.75% senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the "Notes") in
a private offering. The offering was upsized from the previously announced
$250 million aggregate principal amount. The Notes will be fully and
unconditionally guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by existing and future
subsidiaries of the Company that incur or guarantee certain indebtedness,
including the Company's revolving credit facility. The Company intends to use
the net proceeds from the offering to repay all outstanding borrowings under
its revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes, which may
include funding its drilling and development program and other capital
expenditures. The offering is expected to close on April 9, 2013, subject to
customary closing conditions.

The Notes were offered inside the United States only to qualified
institutional buyers in reliance on Rule144A of the Securities Act of 1933
(the "Securities Act") and to persons outside the United States in reliance on
RegulationS of the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under
the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold
in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the
registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state
securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation
of an offer to buy, any of the Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes
in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior
to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state.
