ANCHORAGE, AK--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2014) - Miller Energy Resources, Inc. (the "Company" or "Miller") (NYSE: MILL) announced a substantial increase in the estimated value of its reserves located in the Cook Inlet area of Alaska as determined by Ryder Scott Company (RSC), an independent petroleum reserves engineering consulting firm, in a recently issued reserve report commissioned by the Company.

Compared to the value of the Cook Inlet area reserves at April 30, 2014, the July 31, 2014 reserve report shows, approximately, the following:

($mill)   Miller Energy   Miller Energy
Reserve Category   4/30/2014   7/31/2014

"The updated reserve report reflects a substantial increase to our Proved PV-10," said Scott M. Boruff, Miller's CEO. "This increase demonstrates reserve growth in our Alaskan assets, including Redoubt, West McArthur River and North Fork. As we prove up additional fault blocks at Redoubt and begin drilling out our promising Sabre prospect, we expect further meaningful additions to our reserves, as well as strong increases in production. This is a great way to kick off what I expect to be an exciting year at Miller."

The newly issued reserve report is based on SEC pricing.
