Oyo Offshore Installation
Offshore installation campaign of the Company?s Oyo field expansion project using the Normand Pacific
installation vessel commenced on September 9, 2014 and consists of the recovery and relocation of
umbilicals and flexible flowlines. This offshore installation work will be completed by the first week of
October to allow the recently drilled Oyo-7 and Oyo-8 wells to be tied back to the floating production,
storage, and offloading vessel Armada Perdana.
The Company has temporarily halted drilling on the Energy Searcher drillship, which is drilling the horizontal
portion of the Oyo-8 well in the Oyo field. This was due to leaks in some control system hoses of the well?s
blow out preventer. Replacement hoses have been ordered and are en route to the drilling site. The
Company expects to resume drilling operations within two weeks, while the current offshore installation
As a result of the leaks in the hoses, CAMAC Energy expects the production from the Oyo-8 well in
December of 2014, while the Oyo-7 well will now come on production in January 2015.
CAMAC Energy is advancing its work program in the Shallow Water Tano Block, in which the Company
holds a 30% interest, and is technical operator. The Block contains three discovered fields, and the work
program requires the partners to determine the economic viability of developing the three fields within 9
months. All existing 3D seismic data, along with all geological and well data, have been obtained by the
Company, from the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation and initial evaluation has commenced.
Following the award of the contracts for the 2D seismic in blocks L1b and L16 in Kenya, BGP has started
the initial field equipment mobilization and shooting of seismic is expected within the next four weeks.

processed data delivered to the Company and initial interpretation of the data has commenced.

A2 and A5 offshore blocks. The Company now plans to further evaluate the legacy 2D seismic data in its
possession and decide on the scope of a 3D seismic acquisition program.
