equivalent per day ("boepd"), compared to 7,186 boepd for the same quarter in
the prior year.  Physical production for the first quarter of 2014 averaged

"Despite a challenging quarter, we continue to execute on our business plan, as
evidenced by the list of recent events," said William L. Transier, chairman,
chief executive officer and president. "The Company is focused on growing
production by achieving more consistent performance from its assets,
maintaining operational margins, reducing G&A, enhancing liquidity, reducing
cost of capital and accelerating value from our existing portfolio." 
Operational Update 
North Sea
The Bacchus field continues to perform in line with expectations. Consistent
with the original development plans, the first well drilled (B3Y) is expected
to be turned into a water injector during the second quarter of 2014 to provide
pressure support to help sustain the field's production rates and increase its
overall recovery. Endeavour has a 30% working interest in the field. 
At Rochelle, the second development well East Rochelle (E2) was completed and
tied-in to the production manifold in January. The E2 well commenced first
production on February 28, 2014 averaging around 65 million cubic feet of gas
per day with approximately 3,000 boepd of liquids production. The production
was lower than previously anticipated due to gas compression capacity
constraints on the Scott platform, as a result of unexpectedly high gas
production rates from the Telford field that also produces through Scott. At
the end of March, the Scott Platform experienced an incident requiring a full
platform shutdown. The three fields flowing across the platform, Rochelle,
Scott and Telford were shut-in while an investigation and remedial action
occurred. Production from Rochelle resumed on the 26th of April. Endeavour has
a 44% working interest in the Rochelle development. 
At Alba, progress has been made in the Southern part of the field with partial
water injection being reinstated. Permanent replacement of the pipeline is
targeted for late 2014. The first well of this year's infill drilling program,
the A68 well was brought online in March. A second well, the A69, is currently
drilling and anticipated to be online in June.  The partial reinstatement of a
water injection in the Southern part of the field and the infill drilling
program is expected to increase overall production rates from the field.
Endeavour has a 25.68% working interest in Alba. 
North America
In the Pennsylvania Marcellus, Endeavour successfully completed hydraulic
fracture stimulations of the C-14 and C-20 horizontal wells. The operation
included more than double the number of frac stages on the longest laterals to
date, relative to previous wells. The Endeavour operated activity went smoothly
and according to specifications. The third C-13 well is scheduled for
stimulation in mid-June using the same completion design. The wells will be
tied into a new third-party pipeline being constructed by EQT Corporation that
allows firm capacity of up to 10 million cubic feet per day, with potential for
future expansion. 
In the Piceance Basin Rim play in Northwest Colorado, Endeavour has two
projects targeting liquids-rich Niobrara and Frontier objectives. The Company
has formed two federal units and has plans to drill initial horizontal tests in
the Niobrara target zone by late summer or early fall. Endeavour has leasehold
and drilling options on 40,000 gross acres and 27,000 net acres. 
In January 2014, Endeavour closed on a $255 million senior secured first lien
term loan with an interest rate of 8.25% (Libor + 700 basis points).  The first
lien note is a strip facility consisting of a $125 million Secured Term Loan
and a $130 million LC Procurement Facility.  The Company has used the net
proceeds from the offering to refinance its 13% $115 million Revolving Credit
Facility and replace its two reimbursement agreements ($120 million at 13% and
$33 million at 9%, interest rates, respectively). The facility is due in
November 2017. In late February, the Company reduced the outstanding balance on
the LC Procurement Facility from $130 million to $90 million. 
In March, the Company completed a private placement of $12.5 million of common
stock and warrants and $17.5 million of 6.5% convertible notes. The transaction
included the issuance of 2.9 million shares at $4.28 per share and warrants to
purchase 729,000 shares at a strike price of $5.29 per share. The convertible
notes bear a conversion price of $4.66 per share. In addition, the purchaser
has an option to purchase an additional $25 million of shares, warrants and
convertible notes under the same terms as the original issuance.  The option
expires at the end of May and is not expected to be exercised under current
market conditions.  
Second Quarter Production Guidance and Third Quarter Maintenance Downtime
With the unanticipated downtime at the Rochelle field in April resulting from
the incident on the Scott Platform and lower Alba volumes with continued water
injection issues, average daily production volumes are expected to be in the
range of 9,000 - 10,000 boepd for the second quarter of 2014. Also during the
second quarter, it is anticipated that there will not be a lifting at the Alba
field, which will affect sales numbers for the period. However, under its
marketing agreement, Endeavour is paid monthly for Alba's production. 
In the U.K. North Sea, the third quarter is typically the time for the
maintenance shutdowns. During 2014, Endeavour anticipates that its fields will
be modestly impacted relative to the long programs that occurred on Alba and
Rochelle during 2013. At present, there is a 16 day shut-down on the Forties
Pipeline System planned in August that will affect oil production from Bacchus
and Rochelle. At Alba, where the production is lifted by tanker, a short
shutdown in planned in July.

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.
