Bill Barrett Corporation Reports First Quarter 2013 Results, Positive New Wells in the DJ Basin and Powder River Deep Oil Program and Reaffirms 2013 Guidance PR Newswire DENVER, May 2, 2013 DENVER, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bill Barrett Corporation (NYSE: BBG) today reported first quarter 2013 results and announced operational updates highlighted by: oOil and natural gas production of 21.2 Bcfe, on track for full year guidance of 86-90 Bcfe oOil production averaging 8,827 barrels per day, or 23% of production oAverage realized price of $6.58 per Mcfe, reflecting the benefit of growing oil volumes. Oil sales accounted for 47% of pre-hedge sales revenues oDiscretionary cash flow of $63.6 million, or $1.34 per diluted common share, which includes certain one-time first quarter expenses of $3.8 million, or $0.08 per share. oPlans to run three-to-four rigs in the Northeast Wattenberg June through December oUinta Oil Program drilling and completion optimization, driving 10% savings in per well costs over 2012 oRecent Northeast Wattenberg well flowed 700 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boe/d") peak 24-hour initial production ("IP") rate and 413 Boe/d 30-day average rate, located on the eastern portion of the Company's position oTwo new successful wells in the Powder River Deep Oil Program flowed 2,065 and 1,281 Boe/d peak 24-hour IP rates, and flowed 1,222 and 842 Boe/d 30-day average rates. Both wells were restricted due to availability of facilities capacity in the area Chief Executive Officer and President Scot Woodall commented: "First quarter operations are on track with our full year plan. Further, we are pleased with advances we are making in both the Denver-Julesburg Basin ("DJ") and Uinta Oil Program ("UOP") to optimize well costs and performance. Given results to date and improvement in drilling and completion techniques, we are ready to increase the pace of drilling in the Northeast Wattenberg, which carries the best returns in our portfolio. Execution of our development plans in the DJ and UOP remain our top priority. We also remain committed to ending 2013 with no increase in our total debt. We will be actively managing our portfolio to generate proceeds from the sale of assets to meet our funding requirements, which we expect to complete in the second half of the year." OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS Oil and natural gas production totaled 21.2 billion cubic feet equivalent ("Bcfe") in the first quarter of 2013, based on three-stream reporting adopted as of January 1, 2013. (First quarter of 2013 production on a comparable two-stream basis would have been 20.4 Bcfe.) Production is down from 28.2 Bcfe reported in the first quarter of 2012 and down sequentially from 28.2 Bcfe reported in the fourth quarter of 2012 (each reported on a two-stream basis), primarily due to asset sales closed in the fourth quarter of 2012 and cessation of drilling natural gas programs. Oil production of 8,827 barrels per day ("Bbls/d") in the first quarter of 2013 was up 67% compared with the first quarter of 2012, including an 80% increase at the UOP and a three-fold increase in the DJ, partially offset by the oil production sold in the fourth quarter asset sale. Realized pricing in the first quarter of 2013 was $6.58 per thousand cubic feet equivalent ("Mcfe"), up 3% from the first quarter of 2012, reflecting the significant growth in oil volumes year-over-year and benefiting by $0.41 per Mcfe from realized hedges. The average realized prices by commodity for the first quarter of 2013 were $81.74 per barrel ("Bbl") of oil, $4.10 per Mcfe of natural gas and $48.32 per Bbl of natural gas liquids ("NGLs") (reflecting the Company's election to reject ethane on the majority of its NGLs during the first quarter.) (See "Selected Operating Highlights" below for more detail.) The table below presents production volumes, sales volumes (see "Disclosure Statements" below) and realized prices historically by quarter. First quarter of 2013 production reflects the effects of the asset sale, the change to three-stream reporting and the Company's election to reject ethane: 1Q12 2Q12 3Q12 4Q12 1Q13 Reported Production Volumes 3-Stream: Oil (Bbls/d) N/A N/A N/A N/A 8,827 Natural gas, including NGLs N/A N/A N/A N/A 163 (MMcf/d) NGLs ethane rejected (Bbls/d) N/A N/A N/A N/A 3,349 Reported Production Volumes 2-Stream: Oil (Bbls/d) 5,286 6,972 7,766 9,315 N/A Natural gas, including NGLs 278 287 294 251 N/A (MMcf/d) Sales* Volumes (1Q12-4Q12) & 2-stream estimate 1Q13: Oil (Bbls/d) 5,286 6,972 7,766 9,315 8,827 Natural gas sold as dry gas 257 262 265 223 N/A (MMcf/d) Natural gas including NGLs 174 (MMcf/d) NGLs (Bbls/d) 11,985 11,439 10,341 8,687 N/A Reported Realized Prices Oil (per Bbl) $ 88.42 $ 84.86 $ 84.08 $ 83.84 $ 81.74 Natural gas sold as dry gas (per N/A N/A N/A N/A $ 4.10 Mcf) Natural gas including benefit of $ 5.46 $ 4.77 $ 4.90 $ 5.18 N/A NGL realizations (per Mcf) NGLs (per Bbl) N/A N/A N/A N/A $ 48.32 * (see "Disclosure Statements" below) Discretionary cash flow (a non-GAAP measure, see "Discretionary Cash Flow Reconciliation" below) in the first quarter of 2013 was $63.6 million, or $1.34 per diluted common share, down from $99.0 million in the first quarter of 2012. Adjusting first quarter of 2013 discretionary cash flow for certain one-time items totaling $3.8 million, normalized discretionary cash flow was $67.4 million, or $1.42 per diluted common share. One-time items included $1.2 million in charges not covered by insurance associated with the compressor station fire at West Tavaputs included in lease operating expense ("LOE"), and $2.6 million related to the CEO transition included in general and administrative expense ("G&A") (which was considered in 2013 G&A guidance). The decline in discretionary cash flow in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012 was primarily due to lower production (described above). LOE per unit was $0.88 in the first quarter of 2013 compared with $0.66 in the first quarter of 2012. The increase in per unit LOE was due in general to fixed costs spread over lower production volumes and due to the higher cost of producing oil, with first quarter costs also including major compressor overhauls in Gibson Gulch (which were considered in full year LOE guidance) and the one-time charge associated with the compressor station fire. Net income in the first quarter of 2013 was a loss of $33.2 million, or ($0.70) per diluted common share, compared with income of $35.9 million in the first quarter of 2012. Net income was affected by the same items that affected discretionary cash flow described above. In addition, net income was lower due to non-cash items including: a derivative loss in the current period of $36.3 million versus a derivative gain of $40.9 million in the prior year period; an abandonment charge in the current period of $4.6 million related to exploration properties in the San Juan Basin where the Company elected to terminate a drill-to-earn agreement; all of which was tax effected. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2013 (a non-GAAP measure, see "Adjusted Net Income Reconciliation" below) was a loss of $11.8 million, or ($0.25) per diluted common share, compared with earnings of $9.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted common share, in the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted net income removes the effect of non-recurring charges such as unrealized derivative gains and losses, impairment expenses, property sales and certain one-time items. DEBT AND LIQUIDITY At March 31, 2013, the Company had total debt outstanding (principal balance) of $1,195.7 million including $25.0 million drawn on its revolving credit facility. Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company's lenders affirmed the borrowing base and commitments at $825.0 million. After deducting an outstanding letter of credit for $26.0 million, borrowing capacity at quarter-end was $774.0 million. The Company has no maturities before 2016. OPERATIONS Production, Wells Spud and Capital Expenditures The following table lists production, wells spud and total capital expenditures by basin for the three months ended March 31, 2013: Three Months Ended March 31, 2013 Basin Average Net Daily Wells Spud Capital Production MMcfe/d Gross* Expenditures $mm Uinta: Uinta Oil Program 42 20 $ 65 West Tavaputs 73 0 1 Piceance 101 0 2 Denver-Julesburg 16 2 20 Powder River Deep Oil & 4 4 30 Other Total 236 26 $ 118 *Operated wells Operating and Drilling Update The Company anticipates drilling or participating in approximately 180 gross/100 net development wells in 2013, including participation in approximately 40 non-operated wells. The Company's development program will focus on growth in oil production and reserves at its established development programs. Uinta Basin, Utah Uinta Oil Program (Blacktail Ridge, Lake Canyon, East Bluebell and South Altamont) – First quarter net production averaged 6,940 Boe/d. The Company currently has five drilling rigs operating in the area and plans to operate between two and five rigs in the area through the remainder of the year with a full year program that includes 70 gross/43 net operated wells. Sixteen wells were completed in the first quarter. The Company continues to drive cost efficiencies in the area with optimizations to fracture stimulation design and well depths, driving an approximate $400,000 savings per well in drilling and completion costs for 2013. The Company currently is testing an 80-acre spacing pilot program in the Blacktail Ridge area on two pads, the first of which is drilled and the second currently is being drilled. Down-spacing offers upside potential to increase the current reserves and drilling inventory, which are currently estimated on 160-acre spacing. At March 31, 2013, the Company had an approximate 74% working interest in production from 226 gross wells. Depending upon elections to participate by partners, the Company may have a lower working interest in its 2013 drilling program. As of the end of the first quarter of 2013, the Company had 152,750 net acres (including acreage to be earned) in the program. West Tavaputs – First quarter net production averaged 73 million cubic feet equivalent per day (MMcfe/d). Production operations are fully back on-line following the compressor station fire in November of 2012. Drilling in the area remains suspended as the Company focuses its operations plan on oil development. At March 31, 2013, the Company had an approximate 96% working interest in production from 300 gross wells. Denver-Julesburg Basin, Colorado and Wyoming Northeast Wattenberg/DJ – First quarter net production averaged approximately 2,700 Boe/d. Results from a fourth well located in the eastern portion of the Northeast Wattenberg position are very strong having a 700 Boe/d peak 24-hour IP rate and 413 Boe/d 30-day average rate. The 2013 drilling program will focus on realizing value through development and delineation drilling on the Company's approximate 40,000 net acre Northeast Wattenberg position, which lies in the core of industry activity in the area. The Company recently added a second rig in the area and plans to operate between two and four rigs in the area through the remainder of the year with a full year program that includes approximately 65 gross/42 net operated wells. The Company also expects to participate in approximately 20 non-operated wells. At March 31, 2013, the Company had an approximate 70% working interest in production from 262 gross wells. Piceance Basin, Colorado Gibson Gulch – Current net production is approximately 100 MMcfe/d. Drilling in the area remains suspended as the Company focuses its operations plan on oil development. At March 31, 2013, the Company had an approximate 80% working interest in production from 940 gross wells in its Gibson Gulch program. Powder River Basin, Wyoming Powder Deep Oil Program – The Company holds a 68,740 net acre position in the Powder River Basin, a stacked oil play. The Company's position is prospective for targets in the Sussex, Shannon and Frontier formations. Following two very strong wells completed in 2012 to the Shannon and Sussex formations, the Company flowed two Frontier wells in the first quarter of 2013 that averaged just over 1,000 Boe/d for the first 30 days. In 2013, the Company plans to drill five operated wells in the area and participate in a number of non-operated wells. At March 31, 2013, the Company had an approximate 23% working interest in production from 81 gross wells. ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION Commodity Hedges Update It is the Company's strategy to hedge a portion of its production to reduce the risks associated with unpredictable future commodity prices and to provide predictability for a portion of cash flows in order to support the Company's capital expenditure program. For 2013 and 2014, the Company has hedges in place as outlined in the table below. Swap positions for natural gas and NGLs are tied to regional sales points and oil hedge positions are tied to WTI and include: oFor the second through fourth quarters of 2013, 46.8 Bcfe, or approximately 70% of production, at a weighted average price of $7.85 per Mcfe. Approximately 75% of natural gas, two-thirds of oil and one-third of NGL production/sales is hedged. oFor 2014, approximately 35.8 Bcfe at a weighted average blended price of $7.75 per Mcfe. The following table summarizes hedge positions as of April 19, 2013: Natural Gas NGLs* Oil Volume Price Volume Price Volume Price Bbls/d Period MMBtu/d $/MMBtu $/Bbl Bbls/d $/Bbl 2Q13 132.5 3.72 883 74.74 7,500 98.01 3Q13 135.0 3.71 873 74.74 8,300 97.62 4Q13 123.4 3.72 873 74.74 8,300 97.62 1Q14 75.0 3.83 - - 5,500 94.35 2Q14 75.0 3.83 - - 5,500 94.35 3Q14 75.0 3.83 - - 4,500 95.09 4Q14 75.0 3.83 - - 4,500 95.09 *NGL volumes include propane, butanes and natural gasoline. No ethane volumes are hedged. Guidance The Company's 2013 guidance (please reference "Forward-Looking Statements" below) is as follows. The Company may update guidance as business conditions warrant: oCapital expenditures of $475 to $525 million, unchanged. oOil and natural gas production of 86 to 90 Bcfe, on a three-stream basis, unchanged. The Company is targeting 50%-plus growth in oil production in 2013 over 2012 and expects approximately 6% to 8% of production will be NGLs (assuming ethane rejection for the year), unchanged. oLease operating costs of $62 to $67 million, unchanged. oGathering, transportation and processing costs of $65 to $68 million, reduced from $72 to $75 million. The reduction is a result of a change in accounting methodology effective January 1, 2013 in which certain crude oil trucking charges are classified as a reduction in revenue rather than as a transportation expense. oGeneral and administrative expenses before non-cash stock-based compensation cost of $50-54 million, unchanged.

DISCLOSURE STATEMENTS Natural Gas Liquids Effective January 1, 2013, the Company began reporting its production volumes on a three-stream basis, which separately reports NGLs extracted from the natural gas stream and sold as a separate product. The NGL volumes identified by our gas purchasers are converted to an oil equivalent, based on 42 gallons per barrel and compared to overall gas equivalent production based on a 1 barrel to 6 Mcf ratio. Calculation of Natural Gas Liquids as a Percent of Sales Volumes Prior to January 1, 2013, the Company reported natural gas production based on wellhead volumes and its natural gas revenue included the incremental revenue benefit from third party purchasers and processors when the company elected to receive NGL values from certain volumes of natural gas. In order to provide a metric that is comparable to three-stream reporting, the Company is providing the percentage of total company sales volumes by product including oil, natural gas and NGL revenues received from our gas purchasers or processors for certain historical time periods. The NGL volumes identified by our gas purchasers or processors are converted to an oil equivalent based on 42 gallons per barrel and compared to overall gas equivalent production based on a 1 barrel to 6 Mcf ratio. Forward-Looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding projected results and future events. In particular, the Company is providing "2013 guidance," which contains projections for certain 2013 operational and financial metrics.

In addition, these measures are widely used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, and many investors use the published research of industry research analysts in making investment decisions. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, profitability, cash flow or liquidity measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because discretionary cash flow and adjusted net income exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities and may vary among companies, the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
