HOUSTON—March 1, 2011
--Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (NYSE: VNR) ("Vanguard" or "the Company") today reported financial and operational results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010 and provided financial and operational guidance for 2011.
 
Mr. Scott W. Smith, President and CEO, commented, “Vanguard achieved excellent results on all fronts in 2010. During the year we continued our record of successfully closing accretive acquisitions with the highlight being our acquisition of the general partner and 46.7% limited partner ownership position in Encore Energy Partners, LP.  With this acquisition, we dramatically expanded our operating platform as we now have assets in both the Williston and Big Horn basins along with increasing our presence in the Permian Basin.  From a commodity perspective, our 2010 activities increased our exposure to oil and natural gas liquids from 42% of proved reserves to 63% of proved reserves.  In addition, our percentage of proved producing reserves increased from 68% to 80% of total proved reserves.  The current outlook for MLP’s in the capital markets is bright and we are looking forward to continuing to grow Vanguard on behalf of our unitholders.”
 
Proved Reserves

Total proved oil and natural gas reserves at December 31, 2010 were 69.3 million barrels of oil equivalent, consisting of 43.6 million barrels of crude oil, condensate, and natural gas liquids and 153.9 billion cubic feet of natural gas.  As a result of our December 31, 2010 acquisition of all of the member interest in Encore Energy Partners GP LLC, the general partner of Encore Energy Partners LP (NYSE: ENP) (“Encore”) and 20,924,055 common units representing limited partnership interests in Encore, the Vanguard reported proved reserve quantities and values reflect Vanguard’s and Encore’s proved reserves and values on a consolidated basis which includes the proved reserves attributable to the approximate 53.3% ownership interest that Vanguard does not own (the “non-controlling interest”) in Encore.  Proved reserves were calculated utilizing 12-month average prices during 2010, or $79.40 per Bbl of oil and $4.38 per Mcf of natural gas as compared to $61.04 per Bbl of oil and $3.87 per Mcf of natural gas for 2009.

Using 2010 average prices, the estimated discounted net present value of Vanguard’s proved oil and natural gas reserves, before projected income taxes, using a 10 percent per annum discount rate (“PV-10 Value”) was approximately $1.1 billion (including $375.0 million of PV-10 Value attributable to the non-controlling interest) at December 31, 2010, as compared to a PV-10 Value of approximately $179 million at December 31, 2009.

At December 31, 2010, oil, condensate, and natural gas liquids reserves accounted for 63 percent of total proved reserves, and 80 percent of total proved reserves are developed.  The following table summarizes the changes in proved reserves:
