Update on Tawke PSC

Genel Energy plc ('Genel') notes that DNO ASA, as operator of the Tawke PSC, has today issued an update on licence activity.

The Peshkabir-3 well on the Tawke PSC is currently undergoing extended production testing across a horizontal section in excess of 1.2 kilometres of Cretaceous and Jurassic aged reservoirs. A total of ten oil zones and one gas zone have been identified for testing. The first oil zone tested flowed in excess of 3,000 bopd on a 64/64" choke.

The Peshkabir-2 well continues to produce at a steady rate of 4,700 bopd from one of four production zones and is commingled with over 100,000 bopd from the adjacent Tawke field for export. The Peshkabir early production facility remains on track for start-up by year-end 2017.

Operations and investment activity at the Tawke PSC continue uninterrupted.
