Paramount Resources Ltd. Announces Reduced Capital Spending and Revised Production Guidance

CALGARY – Paramount Resources Ltd. (“Paramount” or the “Company”) (TSX:POU) announces that, in response to the recent significant decline in global energy prices, it has revised its 2020 capital guidance to a range of $185 million to $250 million, a reduction of approximately 46% at mid-point from the originally planned range of $350 million to $450 million.

Forecast average sales volumes for 2020 under the revised capital guidance are expected to range between 70,000 Boe/d to 75,000 Boe/d (41% liquids), a reduction of approximately 6% at mid-point from the originally forecast range of 75,000 Boe/d to 80,000 Boe/d.
