Interoil Exploration and Production ASA : Financial result Q1 2014

Interoil recorded an EBITDAx (EBITDA adjusted for exploration expenses) of USD 16 million in Q1 2014 on operating revenues of USD 23 million. EBIT came in at USD 7 million while net profit amounted to USD 2 million. The results were affected by exploration expenses of USD 7 million and the reversal of a provision of USD 1,8 million, relating to the successful appeal of an environmental fine in Peru.

Working interest production after royalty fell by 5% on the previous quarter, to 2 932 boe, reflecting a 12% production decrease in Peru.
Interoil's main focus for 2014 is to realize the value potential of our Colombian operations. The 2014 development program for the Puli-C field was initiated during Q1, and we expect a production increase to be seen during Q2. We maintain our ambitions to increase production by 40% on 2013 and increase gross reserves by more than 5 million barrels. Going into 2015, through a gas re-injection program, we see potential to further increase the recovery factor of the Puli C field, that could significantly increase our reserve base.
We have completed the "fast-track" processing of the 3D seismic on the LLA-47 exploration license and remain optimistic on its value potential. The seismic imaging is of high quality and more than 10 opportunities have been identified. In a very conservative scenario, there are more than 100 million barrels of original oil in place (OOIP) and our expectation of a risked reserve potential of more than 30 million barrels is reinforced.
Detailed information on the operational and financial activities of Interoil is presented in Interoil's Q1 2014 Report and the Q1 2014 Presentation enclosed.
