17 January 2013

              Magnolia Petroleum Plc(`Magnolia' or `the Company')              

                          Updateon Prucha 1-23MH well                          

Magnolia Petroleum Plc, the AIM quoted US onshore oil and gas exploration and
production company, announces that following the recent speculation regarding
the Prucha 1-23 MH well (`Prucha' or `the Well'), the Company has discussed
with the operator the plans for bringing the Well into full production. The
Board has now decided to relinquish the Company's interest in the Prucha well
on the basis that the funds allocated for Prucha may be better utilised
elsewhere in the Company's portfolio. No funds had been transferred to the
operator prior to this date and hence it is expected that there will be no loss
to Magnolia through this decision.

The Company currently has interests in 88 producing wells in proven onshore US
formations such as the Bakken, North Dakota, with a further 16 currently
drilling/completing and 16 waiting to spud. In addition, Magnolia continues to
receive multiple proposals to participate in new wells across its acreage and,
as a result expects to see continued growth in its portfolio in due course.
