Update on the Sonangol Acquisition

Subsequent to the approval of the licence extension in May 2023, Sonangol is now pursuing the requisite government approvals for the transaction. Based on the outstanding workstreams and associated timeframes, completion of the transaction is now expected to occur in July 2023 and we are working, together with  Sonangol, to extend the long stop date for this acquisition accordingly.

In addition, the enhanced fiscal terms associated with the Block 3/05 PSA extension have been submitted for the requisite government approvals.

We look forward to providing shareholders with further updates in due course.

Operational Update

As previously announced, recent gross production levels in Block 3/05 have continued to remain stable, averaging approx. 18,900 bbl/d in May 2023. Water injection levels have averaged approx. 39,000 bw/d January through May 2023. Finally, production in Block 3/05A, at the Gazela field, has continued at approx. 1,100 bbl/d.
