Petro Harvester Oil and Gas, an exploration and production company focused on acquiring and operating conventional oil and gas producing properties and backed by affiliates of TPG Capital (a leading private investment firm, have just announced the purchase of long-life oil properties in central and southern Mississippi and southern Louisiana from Denbury Resources Inc.

"This new acquisition builds on our experience and success of operating in Mississippi," said Jim Sinclair, President and COO at Petro Harvester Oil and Gas. "Petro Harvester continues its strategy of acquiring well established, long-life, oil-weighted fields, with opportunities for operational improvements to increase production and reserves. We believe these assets will be a great addition to our portfolio."
