Erin Energy Provides Production and Operations Update
Oyo field production exceeds 14,000 boe/d
HOUSTON July 7, 2015 ? Erin Energy Corporation (?Erin Energy? or the ?Company?) (NYSE
MKT:ERN) (JSE:ERN) provides an update on Oyo field production and updates its offshore
operations in The Gambia.
Erin Energy?s current average production from the Oyo field is in excess of 14,200 barrels of oil
equivalent per day (?boe/d?) and is 94% oil. The Company is continuing further production
optimization efforts on both the Oyo-7 and Oyo-8 wells.
The Oyo-7 and Oyo-8 wells are producing into the Floating Production Storage and Offloading
vessel (?FPSO?), Armada Perdana, and Erin Energy has scheduled the first lifting from the
FPSO for sale of at least 300,000 barrels of crude oil to occur mid-July, with a second lifting
scheduled for end-July.
Segun Omidele, Senior Vice President of Exploration and Production commented: ?Since
becoming operator in February 2014, we are pleased with the increase in current production
from an average of 1,300 boe per day in 2014 to more than 14,000 boe per day today. Drilling
these two deepwater wells as 100% owner and operator is a testament of our operational
abilities and we are very proud of our team. The cash flow generated by these two wells will
contribute to our ongoing exploration and development efforts offshore Nigeria.?
The necessary permits for the 3D seismic acquisition have been issued by the government of
The Gambia, and the Company expects to commence the acquisition this month. Erin Energy
will acquire approximately 1,500 square kilometres of 3D data over blocks A2 and A5.
Erin Energy?s A2 block is on trend with the recent offshore Senegal oil discoveries, and the
Company is in continued discussions with potential farm-in partners on the blocks.
