Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited is pleased to provide an update on its activities in Liberia which are focused on the deep water Block LB-13.

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Canadian Overseas Petroleum (Bermuda) Ltd., has received a Work Program and Budget for 2016 from ExxonMobil (the “Operator”). This Work Program is the Operators best estimate as to the timing of key activities. The well to be drilled under the 2nd Exploration Phase, Mesurado-1, is planned to spud in late 2016 to early 2017 with the primary goal of proving a commercial quantity of hydrocarbons in the Cretaceous Santonianage reservoirs. The well will also provide calibration for the seismic response which can be used to evaluate other leads on the block.

The exploration well is currently estimated to be drilled for a total cost of $120M, which is the gross amount of the Company’s 17% carried interest. Long lead items have been ordered and there is an on-going effort to secure a rig of opportunity. The exact timing of the well will be dependent on rig availability and when ExxonMobil can confirm 3rd party contractor’s capability to operate in Liberia.

Arthur Millholland, President and CEO, commented:
“This is a positive first step in proceeding with the drilling of the Mesurado-1 well, subject to overcoming the remaining logistical issues related to the need for participation from third party contractors.
