Callon is updating its full-year guidance to 38,000-39,500 boe/d from 39,500-41,500 boe/d to account for the impact of this divestiture and a previously announced acreage trade involving producing properties in Midland County.

Management also is lowering its estimates for operational capital expenditures to $495-520 million from $500-525 million to reflect realized efficiencies and cost reductions.
