DALLAS--(Business Wire)--
Pioneer Natural Resources Company (NYSE:PXD) ("Pioneer" or "the Company") today
announced that it has priced a public offering of its common stock at $128.00
per share. The size of the offering has been upsized from 8 million shares to 9
million shares. Pioneer will receive total gross proceeds (before underwriters`
discounts and commissions and estimated expenses) of approximately $1.152
billion. Citigroup, Goldman, Sachs & Co., J.P. Morgan and RBC Capital Markets
are joint book-running managers for the offering. The Company has also granted
the underwriters an option for 30 days to purchase up to an additional 1.35
million shares of the Company`s common stock. The offering is expected to close
on or about February 21, 2013. 

Pioneer expects to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate
purposes, including the acceleration of horizontal appraisal drilling in the
northern portion of the Company`s highly prospective Wolfcamp/Spraberry acreage
position in West Texas. Pending such use, a portion of the net proceeds will be
used to repay the outstanding borrowings under the Company`s credit facility,
with the remaining proceeds to be invested in money-market funds or U.S.

The offering is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The offering may
be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and the accompanying
