Reserves Update
RPS Group , an independent third-party reserves evaluator, performed a Competent Persons Report ("CPR") for the Company with an effective date of 31 December 2020. The updated full field 2P gross reserves for Mnazi Bay are 445.3 Bcf (90.8 Bcf being Wentworth's share of net reserves). This compares to 468.9 Bcf as at 31 December 2019. As full-year 2020 gross production totaled 23.9 Bcf (gross), this demonstrates a minimal change attributable to technical and economic factors to previous reserves estimates.

The NPV10 after tax for the 2P reserves as at 31 December 2020 is $116.6 million net to Wentworth. This compares to $118.6 million for 2019. It should be noted that during 2020, Wentworth increased its cash position to $17.8 million (unaudited), while distributing $3.2 million in dividends, compared to cash of $13.5 million as at 31 December 2019.

Katherine Roe, CEO, commented:
"The results of our 2020 Competent Persons Report show the continued strong technical fundamentals underlying the Mnazi Bay field and its potential to generate strong, long-term free cash flows that form the basis of our sustainable dividend policy. We look forward to continuing to use our fiscal discipline and financial performance to create further value for shareholders."
