Tethys Oil's net working interest reserves in the Sultanate of Oman as per
December 31, 2012, amounts to 14.3 million barrels of oil (“mmbo”) of proven

│Reserves (Audited) │
│Mmbo │1P │2P │3P │
│Farha South Field, Oman│4.2│12.5│15.7│
│Saiwan East Field, Oman│0.9│1.4 │2.5 │
│B4EW3 discovery, Oman │0.2│0.4 │0.5 │
The reserves in the Farha South field are from the Barik reservoir section
only. The reserves in the Saiwan East field and the B4EW3 area discovery are in
the Khufai reservoir.
The review of the reserves in Oman has been conducted by independent petroleum
consultant DeGolyer and MacNaughton (“D&M”). The report has been calculated
using 2007 Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS), Guidelines of the
Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), World Petroleum Council (WPC), American
Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and Society of Petroleum Evaluation
The reserve report replaces the previous report by D&M regarding contingent
resources. Tethys Oil's net working interest resources oil base in the
Sultanate of Oman as at December 31, 2011, amounted to 2.6 mmbo of 1C
contingent resources, 9.8 mmbo of 2C and 12.4 mmbo of 3C.

Reserves are estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related
substances anticipated to be recoverable from known accumulations, as of a
given date, based on:
• analysis of drilling, geological, geophysical, and engineering data
• the use of established technology
• specified economic conditions, which are generally accepted as being
reasonable, and shall be disclosed
Reserves are classified according to the degree of certainty associated with
Proved reserves are those reserves that can be estimated with a high degree of
certainty to be recoverable. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities
recovered will exceed the estimated proved reserves.
Probable reserves are those additional reserves that are less certain to be
recovered than proved reserves. It is equally likely that the actual remaining
quantities recovered will be greater or less than the sum of the estimated
proved + probable reserves.
Possible reserves are those additional reserves that are less certain to be
recovered than probable reserves. It is unlikely that the actual remaining
quantities recovered will exceed the sum of the estimated proved + probable +
About Contingent Resources
Contingent Resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given
date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations using established
technology or technology under development, but which are not currently
considered to be commercially recoverable due to one or more contingencies.
