Rockhopper Exploration provides Abu Sennan drilling campaign update

8/15/2017

LONDON -- Rockhopper Exploration plc, the oil and gas company with key interests in the North Falkland basin and the Greater Mediterranean region, has provided the following update concerning the Abu Sennan drilling concession, onshore Egypt, in which the Company has a 22% working interest.

Production from the six fields within the Abu Sennan concession remains stable, averaging 3,300 boed gross during the first six months of 2017.

Al Jahraa-9

The Al Jahraa-9 well penetrated 5 m of reservoir sand in the primary Abu Roash-C (AR-C) reservoir. Wireline logging and a well test across the interval confirmed that, while the sand is water wet, the reservoir pressure is in line with the producing AR-C reservoir in Al Jahraa and Al Jahraa SE fields. The well also encountered the deepest known oil shows in the Abu Roash-D and Abu Roash-E (AR-E) reservoirs, demonstrating further potential at these levels elsewhere in the concession.

The results of the Al Jahraa-9 well will now be integrated with existing data for the Al Jahraa and Al Jahraa SE oil fields to help refine the future development plans for these fields.

Al Jahraa SE-2X

The Al Jahraa SE-2X well has been successfully side-tracked into Al Jahraa SE field and oil pay has been confirmed from wireline logging in both the AR-C and AR-E reservoirs. The well has recently been completed in the deeper AR-E reservoir and was put onto production at a tubular and pump constrained rate of approximately 250 boed gross.
