Erin Energy Commences Production from the Oyo-7 Well

Production from Oyo field expected to double

HOUSTON, June 18, 2015 - Erin Energy Corporation (?Erin Energy? or the ?Company?) (NYSE
MKT: ERN) (JSE: ERN) announced today it has commenced production from the Oyo-7 well
(?Oyo-7?) located in OML 120 offshore Nigeria. Erin Energy is the operator of the Oyo field and
has a 100% interest in the block.

Oyo-7 was drilled to a total depth of approximately 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) and was
successfully completed horizontally in the Pliocene formation. The well is located in
approximately 1,000 feet (300 meters) of water and is producing into the Floating Production
Storage and Offloading vessel, Armada Perdana. Oyo-7 is expected to produce approximately
7,000 barrels of oil per day following optimization of choke size.

Segun Omidele, Senior Vice-President of Exploration and Production commented: ?We are
pleased that the well is performing in-line with our expectations and we will be working over the
next few days to optimize the flow rate. Bringing this well on production will double our current
production rate out of the Oyo field and is a significant step in the continued growth of our

Erin Energy drilled the Oyo-7 with two planned objectives. The primary objective was to target
the Pliocene formation from which it is now producing; and the secondary objective was to test
the deeper Miocene formation for hydrocarbon potential. The Oyo-7 successfully confirmed
hydrocarbon in the Miocene formation, which was previously undrilled on the block. This
successful test has de-risked the Miocene in Erin Energy?s offshore Nigeria blocks and has
provided valuable data for the Company?s planned Miocene exploration program, which targets
recoverable P50 resources of nearly 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Drilling of the Company?s
first Miocene exploration well is slated for 4Q 2015.
