Asset Overview

- Heritage Oil Ltd typically focuses on regions which may have been overlooked and where it can participate as an early entrant. The asset portfolio provides both geographical and operational diversification

- Material corporate transactions undertaken in 2012 provided a balance to the portfolio with assets that include significant production and reserves. The joint venture company Shoreline Power Limited (“Shoreline”), created in partnership with Nigerian company Shoreline Power, has established an indigenous company which will provide a platform for further growth within the country. Through Shoreline, Heritage acquired an interest in OML 30, a world class asset. OML 30 lies onshore the Niger Delta in one of the most prolific oil provinces in the world and includes eight producing fields with oil and gas contained in numerous stacked reservoirs. Entry into Nigeria was partially funded through the disposal of interests in Kurdistan, for which an attractive valuation was achieved

- Exploration activity is focused on assets in Ghana, Papua New Guinea, and Malta:

- With its partners, Heritage holds 45% of both the Offshore South West Tano (OWST) and East Keta licence blocks in Ghana. OWST will be drilled in 2022 and East Keta will see seismic acquisition likely 2025. Both licences are highly prospective

- Heritage Oil Ltd with its partner Kina holds attractive acreage in Papua New Guinea, a gas/condensate system close to existing and planned gas evacuation infrastructure. The proposed construction of a new LNG facility in the area increases the attractiveness of the holding

- Heritage Oil Ltd holds 100% of Areas 2 and 7 in Malta. The areas contain the Caravaggio and Medina bank prospects. The prospects are ready to drill. This area of the Mediterranean is considered underexplored
