Notes to editors

EnQuest is the largest UK independent producer in the UK North Sea.
EnQuest PLC trades on both the London Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ
OMX Stockholm. Its operated assets include the Thistle/Deveron,
Heather/ Broom, Dons area, the Greater Kittiwake Area and Alma/Galia,
also the Kraken development and the Scolty/Crathes fields; EnQuest
also has an interest in the non-operated Alba producing oil field.
At the end of June 2016, EnQuest had interests in 29 UK production
licences, covering 41 blocks or part blocks and was the operator of
26 of these licences.

EnQuest believes that the UKCS represents a significant hydrocarbon
basin, which continues to benefit from an extensive installed
infrastructure base and skilled labour. EnQuest believes that its
assets offer material organic growth opportunities, driven by
exploitation of current infrastructure on the UKCS and the
development of low risk near field opportunities.

EnQuest is replicating its model in the UKCS by targeting previously
underdeveloped assets in a small number of other maturing regions;
complementing its operations and utilising its deep skills in the UK
North Sea. I

n which context, EnQuest has interests in Malaysia where its operated
assets include the PM8/Seligi Production Sharing Contract and the
Tanjong Baram Risk Services Contract.
