Natchez, MS (October 15, 2012) - Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE: CPE) today announced the completion of a scheduled redetermination under its $200 million revolving credit facility. After review of the company's mid-year reserves, the borrowing base was increased from $60 million to $80 million. The next redetermination of the borrowing base is scheduled for March 31, 2013.

The revolving credit facility was amended to reflect the addition of Citibank, NA, IBERIABANK, Whitney Bank and OneWest Bank, FSB as participating lenders.

"We are pleased to welcome four new banks to our lending group and to announce the increase in our borrowing base to $80 million, the second increase this year," said Fred Callon, Chairman, President and CEO. "The increases in the borrowing base reflect our continued success in growing our onshore production and reserve base. With the ongoing support of our lenders, we believe that Callon is well-positioned to continue the expansion and development of its Permian Basin acreage position."
