Lundin Petroleum AB announces that the Managing Director of Lundin Norway AS Torstein Sanness will retire from his executive position in April 2015 and assume the role of Chairman of Lundin Norway. We are pleased to announce that Kristin Faerovik will assume the role of Managing Director of Lundin Norway in April 2015.

Kristin Faerovik was previously the Managing Director of Rosenberg Worley Parsons AS, the Norwegian arm of the large multinational energy and resource engineering firm, where she was responsible for over 600 employees. Kristin has long and varied technical, operational and management experience in the Norwegian oil and gas industry, including previously as Managing Director of Marathon Petroleum Company (Norway), responsible for the development of the Alvheim Field, as well as holding several positions within BP in Norway and internationally. Kristin was a Board Member of Lundin Petroleum from 2011until 2013.

Ashley Heppenstall, President and CEO, Lundin Petroleum comments; ďTorstein has been the Managing Director of Lundin Norway since the start in 2004 and has been the guiding force behind the growth and success of Lundin Norway. He has been responsible for the creation of considerable shareholder value during this period. He has established an organisation with the highest level of competence at all levels: exploration, development and production. With discoveries such as Johan Sverdrup, Edvard Grieg and Alta, Lundin Norway has achieved huge success and, through Torsteinís leadership, is now one of the most successful fully integrated operators on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. We are really pleased that Torstein will remain with us as Chairman of Lundin Norway.

We know Kristin very well from her days as Managing Director of Marathon Norway and as a former director of Lundin Petroleum. The strategy of Lundin Norway in respect of organic growth from a proactive exploration focus coupled with strong development and operational capacity will not change. Lundin Norway has an excellent team of people and a strong asset base. Under Kristinís leadership we will continue to grow our business in Norway for many years to come.Ē
