Arabella Exploration Backs Into Additional Acreage

MIDLAND, TX--(Marketwired - October 08, 2014) - Arabella Exploration, Inc. (OTCQB: AXPLF) ("Arabella" or the "Company"), an oil and gas E&P company focused on the Southern Delaware portion of the Permian Basin, today announced that it has backed into ownership on additional acreage in Reeves County in the Southern Delaware Basin. Arabella has owned a reversionary interest in certain acres controlled by Energen Resources Corporation ("Energen"). By paying its portion of the expenses to date of drilling and leasehold costs, these interests have reverted into standard non-operated, working interests in these wells and properties.

With this reversion, Arabella has backed into a 0.5333% working interest in 6,166 gross, 5,505 net, acres held by Energen in the Delaware Basin. Arabella's interest amounts to 33 gross and 29 net acres. There is currently one horizontal well producing on this project and one permitted well. The Company's working interest entitles it to its pro rata share of the revenue and reserves attached to those wells. Arabella believes that Energen intends to drill additional wells on this project.

This is the first execution of reversionary interests Arabella holds in several projects across the Southern Delaware Basin. The reversionary interests were retained by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary Arabella Exploration, Limited Liability Company as compensation while conducting its previous business as a land company buying and selling lease interests.
