Carrizo Oil & Gas provides preliminary Q3 production results

The preliminary average daily oil and condensate production rate for Q3 was approximately 8,600 Bbls/day, a sequential increase of 14% from the record rate reported in the second quarter and exceeding the high end of the Company's oil production guidance of 8,200 Bbls/day. The preliminary average daily natural gas and NGL production rate for the third quarter was approximately 101,500 Mcfe/day (5% NGLs), exceeding the high end of prior guidance of 96,000 Mcfe/day which had been adjusted to reflect the impact of the sale of Barnett Shale gas production to a subsidiary of Atlas Resource Partners, L.P. effective May 1, 2012. Additional detail including a preliminary 2013 production forecast will be provided during the conference call to discuss Q3 results on Nov. 6.
