HOUSTON, July 2, 2013

HOUSTON, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ZaZa Energy, LLC, a wholly-owned
subsidiary of ZaZa Energy Corporation ("ZaZa" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:
ZAZA), today announced that it has entered into a new purchase and sale
agreement with an independent third party to sell ~10,300 net acres of the
Company's properties located in Fayette, Gonzalez and Lavaca Counties, Texas,
which the Company refers to as its Moulton properties ("Moulton") in the Eagle
Ford. The total cash purchase price for the ~10,300 net acres is ~$28.8
million. As part of the agreement, ZaZa has received a down payment of $1.4
million. The closing of the sale is expected to occur on or before July 31,
2013 and is subject to normal closing conditions.

In conjunction with today's announcement, ZaZa also disclosed that it has
terminated its purchase and sale agreement with the original purchasing party
as this party was unable to fund and close the transaction.

Commenting on today's announcement, Todd A. Brooks, President and Chief
Executive Officer of ZaZa stated, "Given the current landscape, we believe
that transacting at this metric was the best and most prudent action for the
company at this time. We remain focused on monetizing select Eagle Ford
assets in order to improve our balance sheet and we are currently pursuing
other joint ventures in the area. In the Eaglebine, our joint venture is
progressing as planned and we anticipate timely drilling of the first three
wells as part of the Agreement."
