Legacy Reserves LP "Legacy" announced it has entered into an agreement to purchase oil properties in North Dakota and Montana for $70.8 million in cash. These properties have current net production of approximately 776 barrels of oil equivalent "Boe" per day. Legacy estimates that these properties contain 3.2 MMBoe of proved reserves, of which 95% is oil, 2% are natural gas liquids and 3% are natural gas. In addition, 100% of these reserves are considered proved developed producing "PDP" and 95% are operated.

The North Dakota properties contain approximately 75% of the proved reserves, are primarily located in Billings County as well as Golden Valley and McKenzie Counties, and produce mainly from the Madison, Bakken and Birdbear formations. The Montana properties are located primarily in Blaine County and produce mainly from the Sawtooth and Bowes formations. The closing of this acquisition is anticipated to occur on or about May 23, 2012, and is subject to customary purchase price adjustments and closing conditions. Legacy plans to finance this acquisition with borrowings under its existing credit facility.

Coupled with its pending North Dakota and Montana acquisition, these acquisitions will bring Legacy's year-to-date acquisitions of producing properties to a total of approximately $88 million.
