HOUSTON - May 9, 2018 - (PR NEWSWIRE) - Vanguard Natural Resources, Inc. (OTCQX: VNRR) (“Vanguard,” “VNRR,” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, and other operational results.

Key Highlights

Executed four purchase and sales agreements for more than $60.0 million in aggregate gross proceeds
Reported production volumes of 368 million cubic feet equivalent (MMcfe) per day, at the high-end of first quarter guidance
Participated in drilling and completion of two new Pinedale horizontal wells with four more horizontal wells being drilled at quarter end

Updated second quarter and full-year 2018 operational and financial guidance for the year, with an updated 2018 capital budget of approximately $140.0 million to $145.0 million

Mr. R. Scott Sloan, President and CEO, commented, “We have taken several steps forward in achieving our long-term strategy to realign the portfolio, lower debt and maintain liquidity. We signed multiple purchase and sales agreements for proceeds of over $60.0 million, and we are continuing to evaluate non-core assets for accretive divestments. These assets are not core to our growth strategy, and we will be able to use these proceeds to decrease our leverage and improve our financial positioning. I’m pleased with the strategic changes we’re making to turn Vanguard into a competitive E&P company focused on organic growth and financial discipline. We continue to actively pursue ways to optimize the portfolio and achieving these recent milestones is an affirmation that we’re headed down the road for future success.”
  
“I’m also excited to see our volumes in the Pinedale field start to ramp up. An operator of our Pinedale position is turning what was once a conventional vertical play into an unconventional horizontal gas play with very attractive economics. I’m also extremely proud of the success our team achieved during the quarter on our operated assets. They continue to execute our business plan by operating efficiently and effectively,” concluded Mr. Sloan.
