SHAMARAN Q3 2016 FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS

ShaMaran Petroleum Corp Interim information SHAMARAN Q3 2016 FINANCIAL AND
OPERATING RESULTS November 15, 2016 - ShaMaran Petroleum Corp. ("ShaMaran"
or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SNM) (NASDAQ OMX: SNM) is pleased to
announce its financial and operating results for the nine months ended
September 30, 2016. Unless otherwise stated all currency amounts indicated
as “$” in this news release are expressed in thousands of United States
dollars. On November 7, 2016 the Assignment, Novation and Fourth Amendment
Agreement to the PSC (the “4th PSC Amendment”) and Atrush Facilitation
Agreement were concluded between TAQA Atrush B.V. (“TAQA” and the Operator
of the Atrush Block), General Exploration Partners. Inc. (“GEP” and a
wholly owned subsidiary of ShaMaran), Marathon Oil KDV (“MOKDV”)(together,
the “Non-Government Contractors”) and the Kurdistan Regional Government
(“KRG”) resulting in participating interests in the Atrush Block PSC of
TAQA at 39.9%, the KRG at 25%, GEP at 20.1% and MOKDV at 15%. In addition
these agreements include the terms for repayment to the Non-Government
Contractors for costs which they have agreed to pay for on behalf of the
KRG, including those relating to the Feeder Pipeline. Construction of the
30,000 bopd Atrush Phase 1 Production Facility (“Production Facility”) is
complete and commissioning is in progress. The Atrush-2 (“AT-2”) and
Atrush-4 (“AT-4”) wells were successfully completed in the second and third
quarters of this year. All four wells intended for production are now
completed, connected to the Production Facility and ready for start-up.
Work on the pipeline being constructed between the Production Facility and
the block boundary (the “Spur Pipeline”) is expected to be completed in the
fourth quarter of 2016. Work has now commenced on the final 35km section of
pipeline which will run from the Atrush block boundary to the tie-in point
on the main export pipeline (the “Feeder Pipeline”) and is subject to the
terms of an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (“EPC”) contract
between TAQA and KAR Company (“KAR”) which became effective on November 7,
2016. The length and complexity of the commercial discussions associated
with the EPC contract, the 4th PSC Amendment, and the Atrush Facilitation
Agreement have brought the commencement of the Atrush Feeder Pipeline
closer to the winter season which means there is an increased risk to the
schedule. While completion in the first quarter of 2017 is still the target
and a possibility, it is probable that first production from Atrush will be
further delayed to the second quarter of 2017. As a result the Company
estimates that it will require approximately $20 million of additional
funding which the Company expects will be made available by increasing
GEP’s Super Senior Bond through facilities provided for in GEP’s April 2016
financing arrangement. FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS
ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2016 During the reporting period the Company continued
its appraisal and development campaign in respect of the Atrush petroleum
property located in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq which constitutes the
continuing operations of the Company. Atrush currently generates no
revenues. Financial Results The Company reports a net loss of $7.4 million
in the first three quarters of 2016 which was primarily driven by general
and administrative expenses, share based payments expense and finance cost,
the substantial portion of which were expensed borrowing costs on the
Company’s Senior Bonds and Super Senior Bonds. These expenses have been
slightly offset by interest income on interest bearing funds as well as
service fees. Condensed Interim Statement of Comprehensive Income

million which corresponds to increases in share capital and equity reserves
by $18.3 million, borrowings by $7.5 million and other non-current
liabilities by $4.9 million which were offset by an increase in the
accumulated deficit by $9.5 million, principally due to the net loss
recorded in the period, and a decrease in current liabilities by $0.3
million. Property, plant & equipment assets increased by $37.2 million
during the three quarters of 2016 due to $27.6 million of Atrush
development costs and capitalised borrowing costs of $9.6 million incurred
during the period. The increase in intangible assets by $0.6 million during
the first nine months of 2016 is due to $0.3 million of Atrush exploration
costs and capitalised borrowing costs of $0.3 million incurred in the
period. Condensed Interim Consolidated Cash Flow Statement (Unaudited,
