Chief Executive Officer of NGE, Serafino Iacono commented “We are very excited about the discovery of these important gas reserves and the presence of prospective resources to be drilled in this area with great exploration potential to support the gas needs for the country.”


Chance of Commerciality

The chance of commerciality is the product of the chance of discovery and the chance of development (see below for further details).  The primary targets are the Top, Intra and Lower Ciénaga de Oro Formations and the secondary target is the Porquero Formation.  The petroleum system exists in this area, as there is gas production from all three primary targets in the nearby Esperanza and VIM 5 Blocks.  These Blocks are immediately to the east of the SINU-9 Block.

The Chance of Development is estimated at 95%, as gas transmission pipeline systems are in the vicinity due to the producing fields in the Blocks mentioned above.  The Chance of Commerciality for each prospect is then determined by multiplying the chance of development and the chance of discovery (34.6% for prospects in the Top, Intra and Lower CdO and 32.3% for prospects in the Porquero).


Project Description

The Magico 1X well was drilled in May and June of 2022.  The Company plans to drill the Brujo 1X well in

September 2022

and the Hechicero 1X well in

October 2022

, using conventional technology (deviated drilling).  The project is based on a pre-development study.  Total estimated cost to achieve full commercial production is the following:

  • Low Case –

    $18.5

    MM USD
  • Best Case –

    $19.6

    MM USD
  • High Case –

    $21.3

    MM USD

The Company has signed a letter of intent with Plus+ Energy E.S.P. of

Colombia

to purchase the gas between 5.50 and

6.50 USD

per Million BTU for a period of two years from the start date of as early as

December 1

, 2022.  Plus+ Energy E.S.P. will contribute 100% of capital costs.  In the updated reserves report, the production forecast is estimated to start on

January 1, 2023

and the contract is assumed to be renewed every two years.

Information Regarding Resources



– This news release discloses estimates of the Company’s prospective resources.


Prospective resources are defined in the COGE Handbook as those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by application of future development projects.  Prospective resources have both an associated Chance of Discovery


1


and a Chance of Development


2


.  Prospective resources are further subdivided in accordance with the level of certainty associated with recoverable estimates assuming their discovery:


  • Low Estimate: This is considered to be a conservative estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the low estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 90 percent probability (P90) that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the low estimate.

  • Best Estimate: This is considered to be the best estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is equally likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will be greater or less than the best estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 50 percent probability (P50) that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the best estimate.

  • High Estimate: This is considered to be an optimistic estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is unlikely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the high estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 10 percent probability (P10) that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the high estimate.


____________________________


1


The chance that an exploration project will result in the discovery of petroleum is referred to as the Chance of Discovery.


2


The chance that an accumulation will be commercially developed is referred to as the Chance of Development.


Prospective resources are not, and should not be confused with, reserves or contingent resources. Prospective resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by application of future development projects. There is no certainty that any portion of the prospective resources will be discovered. If discovered, there is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the prospective resources or that the Company will produce any portion of the volumes currently classified as prospective resources. Thus for an undiscovered accumulation the Chance of Commerciality is the product of two risk components – the chance of Discovery and the Chance of Development.


The estimates of prospective resources involve implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the resources described exist in the quantities predicted or estimated, as at a given date, and that the resources can be profitably produced in the future. Actual prospective resources (and any volumes that may be reclassified as reserves) and future production therefrom may be greater than or less than the estimates provided herein. The accuracy of any resources estimate is a function of the quality and quantity of available data and of engineering interpretation and judgment. While resources presented herein are considered reasonable, the estimates should be accepted with the understanding that reservoir performance subsequent to the date of the estimate may justify revision, either upward or downward.


The resource estimates presented above are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including those associated with the drilling and completion of future wells, limited available geological and geophysical data and uncertainties regarding the actual production characteristics of the reservoirs, all of which have been assumed for the preparation of the resource estimates.



Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information


Except for the statements of historical fact, this news release contains “forward-looking information”, within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation that is based on expectations, estimates and projections as at the date of this news release.
