Additions and revisions include maturation of Contingent Resources to Reserves from the ongoing appraisal program of Ulfa and Erfan fields as well as upside revisions of the Reserves on the Farha South and Shahd fields.

Based on ERCE’s model and current oil price assumptions, Tethys Oil’s net entitlement Reserves (Reserves after government take) amount to 8,940 mbo of 1P, 12,176 mbo of 2P and 15,321 mbo of 3P.

In addition to Reserves, Tethys Oil also announces net working interest Contingent Resources. The bulk of the estimated Contingent Resources are contained in the Ulfa, Samha and Erfan fields with a small contribution from the Anan-1 exploration well, a new discovery at the end of the 2020. Development of the Contingent Resources in the discoveries is continued contingent upon the on-going appraisal programme, a committed work programme as well as budget to access these resources.
