SUMMARY

A FOCUSED COLOMBIAN E&P - IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME

Pure-play Colombian E&P with strong track record, partners and corporate governance

Material licence portfolio capable of generating significant production growth of low-cost oil
• Focused on two core regions of Colombia: CPO-5 in the Llanos Basin with ONGC, and
Putumayo to leverage the OBA with Occidental Andina and other partners

Exploration and appraisal opportunities to drive value


• Transformational discoveries in CPO-5 are a proven path to growth. Intensive drilling in CPO-5
with ONGC underway through 6 wells in 2019
• Wide-ranging exploration and appraisal programme in Putumayo with Occidental between
2019 and 2021

Fully-funded for growth with financial flexibility


• Occidental funding exploration and appraisal programme in Putumayo
• Fully funded work programme in other blocks from cashflow and internal resources

PUTUMAYO - OCCIDENTAL FARM-IN

OCCIDENTAL ANDINA FARM-IN

• Occidental Andina, a well-financed, experienced E&P player

• The $93.25m farm-in for 50% implies a gross valuation of these four blocks of $187m

• Transaction accelerates Amerisur’s upcoming work programme, bringing forward significant activity in
Tacacho and Terecay, which are estimated to contain very substantial resources and where activity
was not included in the current programme

• Amerisur’s future capex requirements significantly reduced, while meeting our license commitments
and ensuring shareholders remain exposed to future exploration upside

• $293.5m of value created from acquisitions executed in the oil price downturn

• The programme of initial work, in terms of social consultations and licensing is underway. In Tacacho
and Terecay we have already completed Consulta Previa and licensing procedures for the seismic
acquisition, and this is expected to begin during Q1 2019. The Consulta Previa and licensing for drilling
in Tacacho will be initiated in Q2 2019
