  of 54% Over the Second Quarter of 2013 and an Increase of 710% Over the

HOUSTON, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Sanchez Energy Corporation (NYSE: SN)
("Sanchez Energy" or the "Company"), a rapidly growing independent oil and gas
company targeting the onshore U.S. Gulf Coast oil resource plays with a
current focus on the Eagle Ford Shale, today provided an update on its Third
Quarter 2013 Operations.

Summary Highlights

  oSanchez Energy reports third quarter 2013 production of approximately
    1,083 MBOE (11,774 BOE/D), an increase of 54% over the second quarter of
    2013 and an increase of 710% over the same period a year ago
  oProduction volumes consisted of 76% oil, 10% natural gas liquids (NGL),
    and 14% natural gas
  oThe Company currently has 25 gross wells in various stages of drilling and
    completion
  oCurrent production of approximately 15,500 BOE/D, excluding approximately
    1,500 BOE/D of production that is currently shut-in for offset fracture
    stimulation operations
  oThe Company provides 2014 exit rate production guidance range of 22,000 to
    26,000 BOE/D and guides to a calendar year 2014 increase in total
    production of more than 100% over expected 2013 total production
  oClosed the Wycross acquisition on October 4, 2013, which added
    approximately 2,000 BOE/D of production and 11 MMBOE of proved reserves
  oBroadened our onshore Gulf Coast resource position by acquiring
    approximately 40,000 net acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale play and
    increased our Marquis holdings with the Five Mile Creek acquisition

Tony Sanchez, III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sanchez Energy,
commented: "We continue to achieve significant production growth as we are
now in full development mode in each of our Eagle Ford project areas,
utilizing pad drilling to drive cost and time efficiencies throughout our
operations. Our third quarter 2013 average daily production of approximately
11,800 BOE/D was above the midpoint of our guidance range of 11,000 to 12,000
BOE/D. With six rigs drilling (5 net), 19 wells in various stages of
completion, and the addition of our recently closed Wycross acquisition, we
expect our production to continue growing at a rapid pace, and we reiterate
our fourth quarter 2013 average daily production guidance range of 15,000 to
17,000 BOE/D. Furthermore, we continue to anticipate exiting 2014 with
production in the range of 22,000 to 26,000 BOE/D and anticipate full year
2014 production to more than double expected full year 2013 production.

During the third quarter, the Company entered into an emerging oil resource
play by acquiring approximately 40,000 undeveloped net acres in the core of
the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale trend. With a significant portion of the acquired
acreage held by production and plenty of term on the remaining acreage, we
plan to participate in several non-operated wells in the area before
commencing our operated TMS drilling program in 2014. As well costs are
trending down and well performance continues to improve, we see significant
upside potential from this strategic diversification while maintaining our
focus on our Eagle Ford operations.

We also closed on the Five Mile Creek acquisition in our Marquis area, adding
approximately 10,300 net acres northwest of our Prost development. This
acquisition adds not only a contiguous block of acreage with multiple years of
drilling inventory but also numerous developmental synergies with the Prost
area. Additionally, we closed the acquisition of our Wycross property in
McMullen County, Texas, immediately after the end of the third quarter and are
proceeding rapidly to implement a continuous development drilling program at
the end of this year.

Results from our down-spacing pilots continue to compare favorably with wider
spaced historical wells, giving us growing comfort that our inventory of high
quality drilling locations continues to expand. We expect the initial results
of this down-spacing activity to materialize in our reserve bookings for our
year-end 2013 reserve report. In addition to our ongoing development drilling,
we also expect to spud several step-out wells this quarter in our Marquis area
including: Five Mile Creek, the southern end of our Prost area, and our Sante
North location."

Estimated Third Quarter Production Volumes and Operational Update

Estimated total production for the third quarter of 2013 was approximately
1,083 MBOE. Crude oil represented 76% of the total production stream, natural
gas liquids represented 10%, and natural gas represented 14%. The estimated
1,083 MBOE of total production compares to 134 MBOE in the third quarter of
2012, an increase of 710%, and an increase of 54% over the second quarter of
2013 total production of 703 MBOE.

As detailed in the table below, Sanchez Energy currently has six rigs (four
operated and two non-operated rigs) running across its Eagle Ford areas with
19 gross wells in various stages of completion.

Preliminary 2014 Capital and Operating Plan

Our preliminary operating capital program for 2014 calls for spudding 75 to 80
net wells using an annual average rig count of approximately 5 net rigs. The
capital associated with that preliminary program, including facilities,
leasing, and geologic and geophysical activities, is currently estimated to be
approximately $700 million. An estimated 95% of the capital program is
directed to the drilling and completing of the new wells, which we expect will
result in full year 2014 production increasing more than 100% over expected
full year 2013 production.
