THAILAND OPERATIONS UPDATE
Concession L45/50 Farm-in Agreement (Pan Orient Operator and 60% Working Interest)
Pan Orient is pleased to announce an agreement with Mitra Energy Limited for a farm-in at Thailand on-shore Concession L45/50, whereby Pan Orient will become operator and will earn up to a 60% interest by the acquisition of approximately 80 square kilometers of 3D seismic data late in the first quarter of 2013 followed by the drilling of up to two exploration wells. The farm-in is subject to approval by the Government of Thailand, which is anticipated in approximately 90 to 120 days.
Concession L45/50 is approximately 1,990 square kilometers in areal extent directly adjacent to, and east of, Pan Orient's operated 100% working interest Concession L53/48. The Suphan Buri basin extends south into the northern portion of both of these concessions from an area of proven production operated by PTTEP (the Thailand national oil company). Both Concessions L53/48 and L45/50 have very limited old vintage 2D seismic data covering this northern area and a combined program for Concessions L53 and L45 of 180 square kilometers of 3D seismic acquisition is planned to commence late in the first quarter of 2013. There will be great synergy between the operations on the two concessions.
Pan Orient remains committed to building its presence in Thailand after the June 15, 2012 sale of three Company operated onshore Thailand concessions for net proceeds of $158 million.
