Operational Highlights

- One additional industrial power customer consumed gas during the period
- 13% increase in thermal and industrial customer gas consumption for thermal use compared to H1 19
- Notice served to terminate ENEO gas sales agreement in June 2020
- La-108 equipment mobilised but works put on hold due to COVID 19 restrictions

Financial Highlights
- US$12.6 million Revenue (six months to 30 June 2019: US$10.7 million)
- Adjusted EBITDA loss of US$0.8 million (six months to 30 June 2019: US$3.7 million)

Subsequent and Q3 20 Highlights
- Daily average gross gas sales rate for Q3 20 of 4.7 mmscf/d (Q2 20: 4.6 mmscf/d) of natural gas plus gross 2,438 bbls (Q2 20: 3,548 bbls) condensate was produced safely and sold to industrial customers, resulting in net revenues of US$3.3 million (unaudited)

- During October 2020 weekday gas sales have occasionally exceeded 5 mmscf/d with a peak at 6.1 mmscf/d. This is mainly the result of a seasonal swing and the reduction of COVID-19 related issues that our customers face. One more thermal and power customer will be tied in shortly
