On October 27, 2011, Oasis Petroleum Inc. (the Company) and certain of its subsidiaries entered
into an underwriting agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, as
representative of the underwriters named in Schedule 1 thereto (collectively, the Underwriters),
in connection with an underwritten public offering of $400 million aggregate principal amount of
the Companys 6.5% Senior Notes due 2021 (the Notes). The issuance and sale of the Notes has

sale of the Notes is scheduled for November 10, 2011.
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the
Company and customary conditions to closing, obligations of the parties and termination provisions.
Additionally, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities,
including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may
be required to make because of any of those liabilities. Furthermore, the Company has agreed with
the Underwriters not to offer or sell any debt securities issued or guaranteed by the Company
having a term of more than one year (other than the Notes) for a period of 60 days after the date
of the Underwriting Agreement without the prior written consent of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC.
Certain of the underwriters and affiliates of certain of the underwriters have provided, or may in
the future provide, investment banking, commercial banking and other financial and advisory
services to us and/or our affiliates, including underwriting and the provision of financial advice,
and have received, or may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions for their services.
Affiliates of certain of the underwriters are also lenders under our revolving credit facility.
Certain of the underwriters or their affiliates that have a lending relationship with us routinely
hedge, and certain other underwriters may hedge, their credit exposure to us consistent with their
