Kurdistan Operational Update

Genel Energy plc ('Genel') notes that DNO ASA ('the Company'), as operator of the Tawke PSC, has issued the following update:

"The expanded 2017 Tawke program includes eight new production wells, of which six are Cretaceous and two shallow Jeribe wells. A third drilling rig has been mobilized following receipt of regular payments for oil exports through Turkey.

Elsewhere on the Tawke license, the Company produced an average of 3,000 barrels of oil per day from the Jurassic horizon of the recently drilled Peshkabir-2 well during a two-week test period in April. These volumes were trucked to DNO's facilities at Fish Khabur and exported. Extended testing of the shallower Cretaceous discovery in the Peshkabir-2 well has commenced. The Peshkabir-3 appraisal/production well will spud this summer.

The Company is preparing an accelerated development plan utilizing an early production facility to bring the Peshkabir field onstream by the end of this year."
