Oslo, 11 September 2019 - Panoro Energy ASA (OSE Ticker: “PEN”) is pleased to report an update on its drilling operation on the Hibiscus Updip well (“DHIBM-1”), located on Dussafu Marin Permit (“Dussafu”), offshore Gabon.

The DHIBM-1 well was drilled on the Hibiscus Updip prospect and reached a Total Depth of 3,538 metres. An oil discovery was made in the Gamba formation with an overall hydrocarbon column of 33 metres and average porosities ranging between 21% and 23%.

The initial results of logging the Gamba formation at Hibiscus Updip are highly encouraging. Our operating partner’s preliminary assessment indicates that the discovery may be larger than the gross pre-drill estimate of 12 million barrels of prospective resources. The Joint Venture partners have therefore decided to proceed with a sidetrack of the DH1BM-1 well and we will provide an update of the results of this sidetrack in due course.

Panoro Energy will present today at Pareto Securities’ 26th Oil & Offshore Conference in Oslo and provide further updates.

A copy of the presentation will be made available during the course of the day on our website at
