HOUSTON, Feb. 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LINN Energy, LLC (Nasdaq:LINE) announced today the pricing of its public offering of 16,000,000 units of its limited liability company interests at a price to the public of $38.80 per unit. The underwriters have an option to purchase up to an additional 2,400,000 units from the Company at the public offering price less the underwriting discount. The offering is expected to settle and close on March 4, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Company expects to receive net proceeds from the offering of approximately $596 million (or approximately $685 million if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional units in full). The Company intends to use the proceeds to fund its pending acquisitions of oil properties in the Williston Basin and Permian Basin and to fund a portion of its pending tender offer for the Company's Senior Notes due 2017 and Senior Notes due 2018 and related expenses. Any remaining net proceeds are expected to be used for general corporate purposes.
