CAMAC Energy Concludes Oyo-8 Completion Operations
Ready to Commence Oil Production
HOUSTON, March 31, 2015 - CAMAC Energy Inc. (?CAMAC? or ?the Company?) (NYSE MKT: CAK)
announced today it has finished completion operations on the Oyo-8 well, located offshore Nigeria, and is
now ready to commence oil production.
Oyo-8 is hooked up to the FPSO Armada Perdana owned by Bumi Armada Berhad (?Bumi?). However,
CAMAC has been informed by Bumi that the FPSO is not ready to receive oil production from the well due
to class certification inspections of the vessel?s mooring lines being conducted by the American Bureau of
Shipping (?ABS?). Bumi estimates these inspections to be completed within two weeks, at which time Oyo-8
will be allowed to produce into the FPSO.
In the meantime, CAMAC is demobilizing the Sedco Express drilling rig from the Oyo-8 location and the rig
will then mobilize to the Oyo-6 well location to continue its planned Oyo field operations. The Company
does not anticipate further changes to the project schedule of the Oyo-7 well as a result of the FPSO
Kase Lawal, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: ?The successful well completion
operations on Oyo-8 and our readiness to commence oil production are significant milestones for creating
long-term shareholder value. The delay in commencing production due to the ABS certification process on
the FPSO is very unfortunate; however, we are confident that Bumi is taking all necessary steps to
complete the process as quickly as possible.?
