CALGARY, ALBERTA, DECEMBER 4, 2014 ? Oando Energy Resources Inc. (?OER? or the
?Company?) (TSX: OER), a company focused on oil and gas exploration and production in
Nigeria, today is pleased to announce the completion of the 45,000bbls/d, 51km Umugini
pipeline. The pipeline will provide an alternative evacuation route for crude oil produced from the
Ebendo Field through the Trans Forcados export pipeline.

Following the successful drilling of Ebendo wells 5, 6, and 7 over the past 12 months, oil
production capacity within OML 56 has grown to 7,140boepd gross for OER and Energia
Limited the operator of the asset (3,052boepd net to OER). However, export had been
constrained at 3,093boepd (1,322boepd OER Share) via the Agip operated Kwale-Brass
NAOC/JV infrastructure, in which OER currently has a 20% interest through the recent $1.5Bn
acquisition of ConocoPhillips Nigerian Oil & Gas Business. The completion and commencement
of operations on the Umugini pipeline ensures that the Ebendo field can now produce at its full

Commenting, Pade Durotoye, CEO Oando Energy Resources said: ?The completion of the
Umugini pipeline now allows us to maximize the value of our investments to date on the asset
and provides the latitude for further profitable development of prospects and resources identified
in Ebendo?.

Ebendo is located onshore, in the central Niger Delta approximately 100 km north-west of Port
Harcourt and covers an area of 65 km2 (16,062 acres). The License includes two fields, Ebendo
(producing) and the Obodeti field (undeveloped). Oando Energy Resources holds a 42.75%
working interest on the field.

Cautionary Statements

Oil and Gas Equivalents

Production information is commonly reported in units of barrel of oil equivalent (?boe? or
?Mboe? or ?MMboe?) or in units of natural gas equivalent (?Mcfe? or ?MMcfe? or Bcfe?).
However, boe?s or Mcfe?s may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion
ratio of 6 Mcf = 1 barrel, or a Mcfe conversion ratio of 1 barrel = 6 Mcf, is based on an energy
equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a
value equivalency at the wellhead. Readers are cautioned that boe may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation.
