Endeavour Announces 2013 First Quarter Financial and Operational Results

HOUSTON, May 9, 2013 -- Endeavour International Corporation (NYSE: END) (LSE: ENDV) today reported first quarter 2013 net loss, as adjusted of $12.1 million compared to a net loss, as adjusted of $15.4 million for the same period in 2012. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $14.0 million as compared to net loss of $35.3 million for the same quarter in 2012.

Sales volumes for the first quarter of 2013 were 7,186 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("boepd"), compared to 4,174 boepd for the same quarter in the prior year. First quarter 2013 sales numbers were impacted by the timing of liftings at the Alba field, where during the period there was only a single lifting. Physical production for the first quarter of 2013 averaged 9,385 boepd compared to 3,974 boepd for the same quarter of 2012.

Recent Business Highlights:

* North Sea:

      + Drilling of the West Rochelle well remains on schedule, with first
        production expected mid-year 2013
      + The third production well at Bacchus began drilling in March
      + The Alba 2013 in-field drilling program commenced

+ The Centurion South exploration well was drilled to total depth * Finance:

+ The sale of the $107.5 million Monetary Production Payment closed on

April 30, 2013 * Strategic Review:

      + Initiated in February, the review process remains on-going

"This quarter has been about execution and keeping our development projects
moving forward. The drilling of our production wells at West Rochelle and
Bacchus continues on schedule. We have worked through a significant number of
the processing issues at Alba and expect to see better production levels from
the field in the second half of the year," said William L. Transier, chairman,
chief executive officer and president. "Our strategic review process remains
on-going. We intend to bring the process to conclusion as soon as a thorough
evaluation of all the options is completed by our Board of Directors."

Operational Update

United Kingdom

In mid-February, the Transocean Prospect rig moved to the West Rochelle field.
Drilling of the production well has reached total measured depth and final
completion of the well is in process. First production from the West Rochelle
well is expected in mid-2013.The subsea pipeline and manifold infrastructure
for the field has been installed and the topside modifications to the Scott
Platform have also been completed. Endeavour has a 44% working interest in the
Rochelle development.

At the Bacchus field, the Rowan Gorilla VII rig arrived in late March to drill
the third planned production well. Production performance from the first two
wells continues to be strong and remains above original expectations. First
production from the third well is expected during the third quarter of 2013.
Endeavour has a 30% working interest in the Bacchus field.

At Alba, the year's drilling campaign commenced with three development wells
planned. The timing of the drilling program has been accelerated into the first
half of the year. The Company expects the drilling, in combination with
improvements in the processing systems, to result in increased production
levels from the field during the second half of the year. During the first
quarter, production at the field was impacted by an unplanned five-day shutdown
and lower than expected production levels due to continuing processing
problems. Endeavour has a 25.68% working interest in the Alba field.

Beginning in March, the Centurion South exploration well was drilled to its
planned total depth. The presence of hydrocarbon bearing Fulmar reservoir sands
was confirmed, although the section was thinner than anticipated. The Company
and its partners are evaluating the results, as well as the overall commercial
viability of the combined Centurion discoveries. The prospect is a satellite to
the Centurion discovery which was drilled in 1984 and flow tested at 5,200
boepd. The well is being plugged and abandoned. Endeavour has a 33.3% working
interested in the block.


On April 30, Endeavour closed on the sale of a $107.5 million Monetary
Production Payment (the 'MPP') after receiving the required approvals from the
United Kingdom regulators. The MPP will be satisfied out of the production from
the Alba and Bacchus fields.

Strategic Review Process

In February 2013, the Board of Directors initiated a process to explore a broad
range of strategic alternatives to further enhance shareholder value. Data
rooms were opened in the U.K. and U.S. and the process is on-going. Endeavour
remains focused on executing its operational plans. While the strategic review
is continuing, the Company can provide no assurance that the strategic review
will result in the Company changing its current business plan or completing any

(1) We record oil revenues using the sales method and use the entitlements

    method to account for sale of gas production.  Physical production may     
    differ from sales volumes based on the timing of tanker liftings for our   
    international sales.

As required under Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, provided below are reconciliations of net income (loss) to the following non-GAAP financial measures: net income, as adjusted and Adjusted EBITDA. We use these non-GAAP measures as key metrics for our management and to demonstrate our ability to internally fund capital expenditures and service debt. The non-GAAP measures are useful in comparisons of oil and gas exploration and production companies as they exclude non-operating fluctuations in assets and liabilities.

     no tax benefits as there was no assurance that we could generate any U.S.  
     taxable earnings.
