Devon Energy Reports Impact of Third-Party Pipeline Damage in East Texas

    OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 13 /CNW/ -- Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:   DVN)
today reported the impact to its oil and gas production due to an outage of
third-party owned natural gas processing facilities in east Texas. A
third-party natural gas pipeline near the Carthage Hub was damaged by an
explosion and fire that occurred on February 11, 2009.

    Contrary to previous reports, the gas processing plant facilities were
not damaged. For safety reasons, other pipelines leading into the area were
also temporarily shut in.

    Currently, approximately 80 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and
7,900 barrels per day of oil and natural gas liquids are curtailed as a result
of the outages. This represents about three percent of Devon's net
company-wide oil and gas production. Devon expects to restore the curtailed
volumes within two weeks.

    Devon Energy Corporation is an Oklahoma City-based independent energy
company engaged in oil and gas exploration and production. Devon is the
largest U.S.-based independent oil and gas producer and is included in the S&P
500 Index. For additional information, visit
