Erin Energy provides third quarter operational update

Production volumes for the third quarter of 2017 were approximately 5,000 net barrels of oil compared to approximately 6,100 net barrels in the comparative period 2016. The Company’s crude oil inventory was approximately $1.3 million at September 30, 2017.

The Company exercised the first option in its current drilling contract to drill the Oyo North West (ONW) prospect. The ONW is one of Erin Energy’s drill-ready Miocene exploration prospects. Erin Energy has four drill-ready prospects, which target P50 Prospective Resources of 2.4 billion barrels of oil.

In The Gambia, the Company and its partner, FAR Ltd., an Australian Securities Exchange listed oil and gas company are currently interpreting the recently acquired 3-D seismic data to further mature identified prospects on blocks A2 and A5.

In Ghana, following the recent decision of the Special Chamber of the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) in Hamburg concerning the maritime boundary dispute between Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire, the Company is working with the Ghanian Government and its partners to progress the development activities in its Expanded Shallow Water Tano block, offshore Ghana. The 3-D seismic data, which is planned to be acquired during the second quarter of 2018, will be used to improve subsurface definition and optimization of drilling targets.

“During the third quarter, we produced more than 400,000 net barrels of oil and generated revenues of more than $33 million,” said Femi Ayoade, Chief Executive Officer.

“We completed the drilling phase of Oyo-9, have secured a funding commitment for Miocene exploration in OML 120 and will spud the Miocene exploration well before year-end. We also made further progress in our AP and debt reduction efforts.”
