Part III — Narrative

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. Due to an unexpected technical delay with its filing software, among other items, the Company’s Form 10-Q was accepted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) at 5:31 p.m. Eastern time on August 9, 2017, shortly after the filing deadline, and consequently received a filing date of August 10, 2017.

The Company intends to submit to the Commission a written request for a date adjustment for the filing date to be changed from August 10, 2017 to August 9, 2017. However, as a precautionary matter, the Company is submitting this Form 12b-25 to ensure that it remains timely in its periodic filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company’s Form 10-Q was filed within the “grace” period provided by Securities Exchange Act Rule 12b-25.
