Peyto Production Reaches 75,000 boe/d in 2013, Reserves Top 467 Million BOEs 
CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 12, 2014) - Peyto Exploration &
Development Corp. ("Peyto" or the "Company") (TSX:PEY) is
pleased to present the results and analysis of the independent reserve report
effective December 31, 2013. The evaluation encompassed 100% of Peyto's
reserve assets and was conducted by InSite Petroleum Consultants
("InSite").  
This year marks the company's 15th year of profitable reserves development
and the largest organic capital program in Peyto's history. Reserves per
share grew in all categories with total reserves now exceeding 2.8 Trillion
Cubic Feet equivalent ("TCFe") or 467.8 Million Barrels of Oil
equivalent ("MMBOE") at year end.  
Historical 
/T/ 
--  Over the past 15 years, Peyto has explored for and discovered 3.5 TCFe 
of Alberta Deep Basin natural gas and associated liquids, over 55% of 
which has now been developed. Each year the Company invests in the 
discovery of new reserves and the efficient and profitable development 
of existing reserves into high netback natural gas production. 
--  In total, $3.45 billion has been invested in the acquisition and 
development of the 2.0 TCFe of developed reserves at an average cost of 
$1.76/MCFe, while a weighted average field netback(1) of $4.93/MCFe has 
resulted in a cumulative recycle ratio(2) of 2.8 times. 
--  Based on the December 31, 2013 evaluation, the debt adjusted, Net 
Present Value of the company's remaining Proved plus Probable Additional 
reserves ("P+P NPV" - debt adjusted, 5% discount) was $38/share, 
comprised of $23/share of developed reserves and $15/share of 
undeveloped reserves.  
/T/ 
2013 Highlights 
/T/ 
--  For the year ended December 31, 2013, Peyto invested $578 million of 
capital to build a record 38,400 boe/d of new production(1) at a cost of 
$15,100/boe/d. This is the fourth year in a row that Peyto has built new 
production for less than $17,600/boe/d, inclusive of land, seismic, 
facilities and all well costs. 
--  Peyto developed over 246 BCFe (41 MMBOEs) of new Proved Producing ("PP") 
reserves at a Finding, Development and Acquisition ("FD&A") cost of 
$2.35/MCFe ($14.08/boe) while the average field netback(1) was 
$3.65/MCFe ($21.89/boe), resulting in a 1.6 times recycle ratio(2). 
Facility investments of $112 million in 2013 represented 19% of the 
total capital expenditures, or double that of the previous 3 year 
average, which contributed to the 6% year over year increase in PP FD&A. 
Excluding the facility capital, the 2013 PP F&D was 3% lower than 2012. 
--  Peyto replaced 230% of annual production with new Total Proved ("TP") 
reserves at a FD&A cost of $2.23/MCFe ($13.39/boe) and 450% of annual 
production with new Proved plus Probable Additional ("P+P") reserves at 
a FD&A cost of $1.86/MCFe ($11.16/boe) (including increases in Future 
Development Capital ("FDC") of $87.9 million and $508.7 million for the 
respective categories). For comparative purposes, FD&A costs before 
changes in FDC were $1.94/MCFe ($11.62/boe) and $0.99/MCFe ($5.93/boe), 
respectively. 
--  Company reserves increased by 12%, 10% and 19% to 1.1 TCFe, 1.8 TCFe and 
2.8 TCFe for PP, TP and P+P, respectively. Per share reserves were up 
the same for these respective categories. 
--  The Reserve Life Index ("RLI") for the PP, TP and P+P reserves decreased 
to 7, 12 and 19 years as production grew faster than reserves. 
--  At year end, P+P reserves of 468 MMboes (inclusive of 628 future 
locations) had been assigned to just 12% of Peyto's total Deep Basin 
rights.  
/T/ 
2014 Capital Budget 
/T/ 
--  Peyto is ahead of its 2014 budgeted volumes with current production of 
75,000 boe/d. In total, the company anticipates investing $575 to $625 
million, drilling approximately 110-122 gross wells, and adding 32,000 
boe/d to 36,000 boe/d of new production by the end of the year.

ANALYSIS 
Each year Peyto analyzes the reserve evaluation in order to answer three basic
but fundamental questions for shareholders: 
/T/ 
1.  Base Reserves - How did the "base reserves" that were on production at 
the time of the last reserve report perform during the year, and how did 
any change in commodity price forecast affect their value? 
2.  Value Creation - How much value did the 2013 capital investments create, 
both in current producing reserves and in undeveloped potential? 
3.  Growth and Income - Are the projected cash flows capable of funding the 
growing number of undeveloped opportunities and a sustainable dividend 
stream to shareholders without sacrificing Peyto's financial 
flexibility?  
/T/ 
Base Reserves 
Peyto's existing Proved Producing reserves at the start of 2013 (base
reserves) were evaluated and adjusted for 2013 production as well as any
technical revisions resulting from the additional twelve months of data. As
part of InSite's independent engineering analysis, all 909 producing
entities were evaluated. These producing wells and zones represent a total
gross Estimated Ultimate Recoverable (EUR) volume of 1.8 TCF plus associated
liquids. In aggregate, Peyto is pleased to report that its total base reserves
continue to meet with expectation, which increases the confidence in the
prediction of future recoveries. 
For 2014, InSite is forecasting the total base production (all wells on
production at Dec. 31, 2013) to decline to approximately 45,300 boe/d by
December, 2014. This implies a base decline rate of 37% from December 2013.
This forecast decline rate is higher than 2013 as Peyto added more production
in late Q4 2013 than originally planned. The historical base decline rates and
capital programs are shown in the following table: 
/T/

(i)The base decline represents the aggregate annual decline of all wells on 
production at the end of the previous year.                                  
/T/ 
The commodity price forecast used by the independent engineers in this
year's evaluation was less than last year which had the effect of reducing
the Net Present Value of all reserve categories. The debt adjusted NPV,
discounted at 5%, of last year's Proved Producing reserves, decreased $145
million, or 7%, due to the change in commodity price forecasts and with
Peyto's realized offset to posted prices. InSite's price forecast
used in the variable dollar economics is available on their website at
www.insitepc.com. 
Value Creation/Reconciliation 
During 2013, Peyto invested a total of $578 million to drill 99 gross (93.4
net) horizontal gas wells. In keeping with Peyto's strategy of maximizing
shareholder returns, an evaluation of the economic results of this capital
investment is necessary in order to determine, on a go-forward basis, the best
use of shareholders' capital. Not only does this look back analysis give
shareholders a report card on the capital that was invested, it also helps
illustrate the potential returns that can be generated from similar future
undeveloped opportunities.  
Exploration and Development Activity 
Of the total capital invested in exploration and development activities, 2% was
spent on acquiring lands and seismic, 19% on facilities, and the remaining 79%
was spent drilling, completing and connecting existing and new reserves. Of the
99 gross (93.4 net) wells drilled, 70% or 69 gross wells were previously
identified as undeveloped reserves in last year's reserve report (48
Proved, 21 Probable Additional). The remaining 30 wells were not recognized in
last year's report. As is the case in most years, a portion of the
drilling program was drawn from the company's total internal drilling
inventory which is larger and more comprehensive than that identified in the
InSite report. 
The undeveloped reserves booked to the 69 locations at year end 2012 totaled
206 BCFe (3.0 BCFe/well) of Proved Undeveloped plus Probable Additional
reserves for a forecast capital investment of $332 million ($1.61/Mcfe). In
actuality, $310 million of capital ($1.42/Mcfe) was spent on these 69 wells
during 2013, yielding Proved Producing plus Probable Additional reserves of 218
BCFe (3.2 BCFe/well).  
With less capital yielding even more reserves, the development of these 69
booked locations produced an even better result than was originally projected.
This analysis helps to validate the accuracy of the reserve and capital
assignments of past undeveloped locations and provides confidence in the
quality of the estimates for future undeveloped locations. 
Value Reconciliation 
In order to measure the success of all of the capital invested in 2013, it is
necessary to quantify the total amount of value added during the year and
compare that to the total amount of capital invested. The independent engineers
have run last year's reserve evaluation with this year's price
forecast to remove the change in value attributable to both commodity prices
and changing royalties. This approach isolates the value created by the Peyto
team from the value created (or lost) by those changes outside of their control
(ie. commodity prices). Since the capital investments in 2013 were funded from
a combination of cash flow, debt and equity, it is necessary to know the change
in debt and the change in shares outstanding to see if the change in value is
truly accretive to shareholders. 
At year end 2013, Peyto's estimated net debt had increased by $284.1
million to $946.5 million while the number of shares outstanding had increased
by 0.276 million shares to 148.949 million shares. The change in debt includes
all of the capital expenditures, as well as any acquisitions, and the total
fixed and performance based compensation paid out for the year. Although these
estimates are believed to be accurate, they remain unaudited at this time and
are subject to change.  
Based on this reconciliation of changes in BT NPV, the Peyto team was able to
create $867 million of Proved Producing, $1.129 billion of Total Proven, and
$2.307 billion of Proved plus Probable Additional undiscounted reserve value,
with $578 million of capital investment. The ratio of capital expenditures to
value creation is what Peyto refers to as the NPV recycle ratio, which is
simply the undiscounted value addition, resulting from the capital program,
divided by the capital investment. For 2013, the Proved Producing NPV recycle
ratio is 1.5. 
The historic NPV recycle ratios are presented in the following table.

/T/ 
(i)NPV0 (net present value) recycle ratio is calculated by dividing the
undiscounted NPV of reserves added in the year by the total capital cost for
the period (eg. Proved Producing ($867/$578) = 1.5). 
Growth and Income 
As a dividend paying growth corporation, Peyto's objective is to
profitably grow the resources which generate sustainable income (dividends) for
shareholders. In order for income to be more sustainable and grow, Peyto must
profitably find and develop more reserves. Simply increasing production from
the existing reserves will not make that income more sustainable. Reserve Life
Index (RLI), or a reserve to production ratio, provides a measure of this long
term sustainability. 
During 2013, the Company was successful in replacing 190% of annual production
with new Proved Producing reserves, which resulted in a 12% increase in total
PP reserves. Fourth quarter production, however, increased 35%, from 49,754
boe/d to 67,296 boe/d, which had the effect of reducing the Proved Producing
reserve life index 17% from 8.7 years to 7.2 years. This year over year
reduction in reserve life was amplified by a facility outage that reduced Q4
2012 production, while Q4 2013 production was higher than originally planned
due to the delayed timing of new well additions. Despite these fourth quarter
production variances, reserve life index in all categories has declined since
the adoption of horizontal multi-stage fracture well designs due to the large
initial production rates combined with steep initial declines. 
For comparative purposes, the Total Proved and P+P reserve life index was 12
and 19 years, respectively, similarly affected by the fourth quarter production
variances described above. Management believes, however, that the most
meaningful method to evaluate the current reserve life is by dividing the
Proved Producing reserves by the actual fourth quarter annualized production.
This way production is being compared to producing reserves as opposed to
producing plus non-producing reserves. 
The following table highlights the Company's historical Reserve Life
Index.

Future Undeveloped Opportunities 
With the continued expansion of Peyto's exploration and development
activity to $625 million in 2014, the Company has been able to increase the
pace that undeveloped opportunities are both recognized and developed. As a
result, the number of future drilling locations in the reserve report has
increased 24% to 628 gross (505 net) locations from 507 gross (401 net)
locations last year. Of these future locations, 59% are categorized by the
independent reserve evaluators as Proven Undeveloped with the remaining 41% as
Probable Undeveloped. The net reserves associated with the undeveloped
locations total 1.53 TCFe (255.4 mmboes) while the total capital required to
develop them is estimated at $2.55 billion or $1.67/MCFe, This is forecast to
create Net Present Value of $2.7 billion (5% discount rate, post capital
recovery) or $17.81 per share. The development schedule for the undeveloped
reserves is shown in the following table of forecasted capital.

--  FD&A (finding, development and acquisition) costs are used as a measure 
of capital efficiency and are calculated by dividing the capital costs 
for the period, including the change in undiscounted future development 
capital ("FDC"), by the change in the reserves, incorporating revisions 
and production, for the same period (eg. Total Proved 
($578.0+$87.9)/(304.494-276.419+21.649) = $2.23/mcfe or $13.39/boe).  
--  The reserve life index (RLI) is calculated by dividing the reserves (in 
boes) in each category by the annualized average production rate in 
boe/year (eg. Proved Producing 176,882/(67.296x365) = 7.2). Peyto 
believes that the most accurate way to evaluate the current reserve life 
is by dividing the proved developed producing reserves by the actual 
fourth quarter average production. In Peyto's opinion, for comparative 
purposes, the proved developed producing reserve life provides the best 
measure of sustainability.  
--  The Recycle Ratio is calculated by dividing the field netback per MCFe, 
before hedging, by the FD&A costs for the period (eg. Proved Producing 
(($21.89)/$14.08=1.6). The recycle ratio is comparing the netback from 
existing reserves to the cost of finding new reserves and may not 
accurately indicate investment success unless the replacement reserves 
are of equivalent quality as the produced reserves.  
--  The reserve replacement ratio is determined by dividing the yearly 
change in reserves before production by the actual annual production for 
the year (eg. Total Proved ((176.882-157.491+21.649)/21.649) = 190%).

RESERVES COMMITTEE 
Peyto has a reserves committee, comprised of independent board members, that
reviews the qualifications and appointment of the independent reserve
evaluators. The committee also reviews the procedures for providing information
to the evaluators. All booked reserves are based upon annual evaluations by the
independent qualified reserve evaluators conducted in accordance with the COGE
(Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation) Handbook and National Instrument 51-101. The
evaluations are conducted using all available geological and engineering data.
The reserves committee has reviewed the reserves information and approved the
reserve report.  
2014 UPDATE  
The winter weather of 2013/2014 has surprised forecasters and resulted in
record consumption of natural gas. This in turn has depleted storage reservoirs
faster than predicted and caused short term natural gas prices to become
extremely volatile. Futures prices for natural gas beyond next year remain at
significantly lower levels than current day prices due to the belief that low
costs supplies are still available in the many North American shale gas plays.
While this short term price volatility is unpredictable, Peyto remains a long
term price taker with its industry leading low cost structure and a proven
track record of profitable development of production and reserves.  
The capital program for 2014 remains on track with 9 drilling rigs actively
developing reserves and production in Peyto's many core areas in the
Alberta Deep Basin. Four facility expansion projects, totaling 105 mmcf/d of
new processing capacity, are planned for 2014 in order to accommodate the
anticipated production growth.  
In the Wildhay area, a 27 km, 8" gathering line was installed in January
2014 that connected two new wells and 19.5 sections of land to Peyto's gas
plant. Success in this new expansion area will be followed up with more
drilling, a sales line loop and a plant expansion in the fall of 2014 which
will increase the Wildhay plant capacity from 70 mmcf/d to 90 mmcf/d.  
At Oldman North, ongoing development of the Upper and Middle Falher is expected
to drive production growth that will require the recently commissioned Oldman
North Plant to be expanded from 30 mmcf/d to 80 mmcf/d. This is also expected
to happen in the fall of 2014.   
Successful Wilrich development in the Ansell area is requiring additional
processing capacity at Peyto's Swanson gas plant. An additional
compressor, to be installed before breakup, will increase processing capacity
from 50 mmcf/d to 65 mmcf/d at this facility which should be further supported
by recent Bluesky drilling.  
Finally, continued exploration and development in Peyto's Brazeau River
area is yielding encouraging results. A planned plant expansion from 20 mmcf/d
to 40 mmcf/d before spring breakup is expected to accommodate ongoing drilling
results. 
By the end of 2014, Peyto expects to be operating over 630 mmcf/d of total
processing capacity in the Alberta Deep Basin capable of handling up to 115,000
boe/d of total NGL and natural gas production. 
Peyto continues to believe in the future of natural gas as the most abundant,
affordable, and cleanest burning energy source available. Peyto also believes
that financial success for both the company and its shareholders will continue
to come from being the lowest cost, most efficient and most profitable Explorer
and Producer in the industry. 
GENERAL  
For more in depth discussion of the 2013 reserve report, an interview with the
management will be available on Peyto's website by the end of February
2014. A complete filing of the Statement of Reserves (form 51-101F1), Report on
Reserves (form 51-101F2), and Report of Management and Directors on Oil and Gas
Disclosure (form 51-101F3) will be available in the Annual Information Form to
be filed by the end of March 2014. Shareholders are encouraged to actively
visit Peyto's website located at www.peyto.com. 
This news release contains certain forward-looking information and statements
within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The use of any of the words
"expect", "anticipate", "continue",
"estimate", "may", "will", "project",
"should", "believe", "plans", "intends"
and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information or
statements. In particular, but without limiting the foregoing, this news
release contains forward-looking information and statements pertaining to the
following: management's assessment of Peyto's future plans and
operations, capital expenditures, the volumes and estimated value of
Peyto's reserves, the life of Peyto's reserves, production estimates,
the ability to enhance value of reserves for shareholders and ensure the
reserves generate the maximum possible return. Forward-looking statements or
information are based on a number of material factors, expectations or
assumptions of Peyto which have been used to develop such statements and
information but which may prove to be incorrect. 
Although Peyto believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking
statements or information are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed
on forward-looking statements because Peyto can give no assurance that such
expectations will prove to be correct. In addition to other factors and
assumptions which may be identified herein, assumptions have been made
regarding, the impact of increasing competition, the timely receipt of any
required regulatory approvals, the ability of Peyto to obtain qualified staff,
equipment and services in a timely and cost efficient manner, drilling results,
field production rates and decline rates, the ability to replace and expand
reserves through development and exploration, future commodity prices,
currency, exchange and interest rates, regulatory framework regarding
royalties, taxes and environmental matters and the ability of Peyto to
successfully market its oil and natural gas products. By their nature,
forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties,
some of which are beyond these parties' control, including the impact of
general economic conditions, industry conditions, volatility of commodity
prices, currency fluctuations, imprecision of reserve estimates, environmental
risks, competition from other industry participants, the lack of availability
of qualified personnel or management, stock market volatility and ability to
access sufficient capital from internal and external sources. Peyto's
actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those
expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements and, accordingly,
no assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by the
forward-looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so,
what benefits that Peyto will derive therefrom. The forward-looking information
and statements contained in this news release speak only as of the date of this
news release, and Peyto does not assume any obligation to publicly update or
revise any of the included forward-looking statements or information, whether
as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be
required by applicable securities laws.  
This news release contains information, including in respect of Peyto's
2014 capital program, which may constitute future oriented financial
information or a financial outlook. Such information was approved by management
of Peyto on November 12, 2013, and such information is included herein to
provide readers with an understanding of the Company's anticipated capital
expenditures for 2014. Readers are cautioned that the information may not be
appropriate for other purposes. 
BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion
ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method
primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value
equivalency at the wellhead.  
Some values set forth in the tables above may not add due to rounding. It
should not be assumed that the estimates of future net revenues presented in
the tables above represent the fair market value of the reserves. There is no
assurance that the forecast prices and costs assumptions will be attained and
variances could be material. The aggregate of the exploration and development
costs incurred in the most recent financial year and the change during that
year in estimated future development costs generally will not reflect total
finding and development costs related to reserves additions for that year. 
The Toronto Stock Exchange has neither approved nor disapproved the information
contained herein.
