CAMAC Energy Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Provides Operational Update on its West and East Africa Operations

HOUSTON, August 11, 2014 - CAMAC Energy Inc. (JSE: CME) announced today financial and operating
results for the second quarter of 2014. The company plans to file its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June
30, 2014 with the Securities and Exchange Commission later today.

Highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 include:

-   Spudded the Oyo-8 development well offshore Nigeria
-   Signed a Petroleum Agreement with the Government of Ghana for the Expanded Shallow Water Tano
-   Completed the $270 million private placement with the Public Investment Corporation (SOC) Limited
-   Currently processing the 2D seismic data that was acquired offshore Kenya in March 2014

The Northern Offshore Energy Searcher drillship commenced drilling operations on the Oyo-8 development
well on June 15. Oyo-8 was drilled to a total depth (TD) of 6,059 feet, and successfully encountered four
new oil and gas reservoirs with total gross hydrocarbon thickness of 112 feet based on results from the
logging-while-drilling (LWD) data, reservoir pressure measurement, and reservoir fluid sampling. The well
will now be completed horizontally as a producing well in the Pliocene formation of the Central Oyo field.
Further, Oyo-7, which was successfully drilled in October 2013, will also be completed horizontally in the
Pliocene formation of the Central Oyo field. CAMAC Energy is the operator, and owns a 100% interest.

In addition to the development wells offshore Nigeria, the company has identified 10 exploration prospects
and 12 leads, and is in the process of maturing several prospects to drill-ready status, each containing
substantial prospective resources. The company plans to commence drilling of the first exploration well in

In April 2014, the company signed a Petroleum Agreement relating to the Expanded Shallow Water Tano
(ESWT) block located in the Tano Basin offshore Ghana. The block contains three discovered fields, and
the work program requires the partners to determine, within nine months of the effective date, the economic
viability of developing the discovered fields. In collaboration with its partners, the company is working on
plans to conduct basin modeling and field studies.

The ESWT block size is 1,508 square kilometres, located about 15-35 km off the coast of Ghana, in water
depths ranging from 55 meters to 116 meters (180 feet to 380 feet) and contains three discovered fields:
Tano North, Tano West and Tano South.        Significant quantities of oil and gas have been discovered in
these fields, and drill stem tests also established producibility of the reservoirs.   A leading worldwide
independent petroleum consulting firm has been identified to assist with the evaluation.      Activities will
include evaluating existing 3D seismic data, and geological and well data. CAMAC Energy is the operator,
and owns a 30% interest.

Exploration activities are continuing in the Lamu Basin on Blocks L1B and L16 onshore, and on Blocks L27
and L28 offshore.

L1B/L16 Onshore
- Completed a Gravity and Magnetic Survey in April 2013
- Completed an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Study in March 2014
- Currently preparing to acquire 2D seismic on both blocks

The initial exploration period for blocks L1B and L16 expires in June 2015. The company has the right to
apply for up to two additional two-year exploration periods with specified additional minimum work
obligations, including the acquisition of 3D seismic data, and the drilling of one exploratory well on each
block during each such additional period. CAMAC Energy is the operator, and owns a 100% interest.

L27/L28 Offshore

- WesternGeco, a Schlumberger company, is currently processing the 2D seismic data that was
acquired in March 2014
- Presently conducting a regional Geophysical Study
- Results from the 2D interpretation will be used to outline the location for a 3D seismic acquisition
- 3D seismic will then be processed to interpret the geologic framework

Current efforts are being directed towards drilling one exploration well in either Block L27 or Block L28.
CAMAC Energy is the operator, and owns a 100% interest.

Frontier exploration activities are also continuing offshore Gambia on Blocks A2 and A5. CAMAC Energy is
reprocessing existing 2D seismic, conducting a regional geological study, and also has plans for a 3D
seismic survey. CAMAC Energy is the operator, and owns a 100% interest.

For the second quarter of 2014, revenues were $14.9 million, on net daily production of 1,600 barrels of oil,
net of royalties. Revenue on a per barrel basis was $110.40. CAMAC Energy reported a net loss of $11.9
million for the second quarter of 2014, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share. Cash and cash equivalents at
