Files Q3 2018 Results

Calgary, Canada, November 8, 2018 - Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited ("COPL" or the "Company") (XOP: CSE) & (COPL: LSE), an international oil and gas exploration and development company focused on offshore Africa, announces the filing of the third quarter results ending September 30, 2018.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company had been working towards advancing its financing activities together with its joint venture partner Shoreline Energy and its investment bankers. Subsequently, towards the end of the quarter, ShoreCan entered into discussions with a second large oil service provider, with activities in West Coast Africa.

Arthur Millholland, President & CEO, commented:

"We are delighted to have been approached by another large oil service provider, which is very familiar with the region. Not only are they offering the provision of services, but also financing. This level of interest reaffirms our long-term view that OPL226 is an attractive opportunity with significant upside potential.

"As for the Essar dispute, widely discussed by our shareholders, we continue to stand firm that it has no merit as the 60-day actionable period has lapsed. ShoreCan and its 80%-owned Essar Nigeria partner are successfully advancing its financing and operational activities in Nigeria."

The results and associated interim filing documents, including the Financial Statements and the Management's Discussion and Analysis, can be viewed under the Company's name at www.sedar.com or at the Company's website at www.canoverseas.com.

About the Company:

The Company is actively pursuing opportunities in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa in partnership with Shoreline Energy International Limited ("Shoreline") as part of its strategy to generate stable cash flow from secure offshore and onshore assets. The Company and Shoreline, through their jointly-held affiliated company Shoreline Canadian Overseas Petroleum Development Corporation ("ShoreCan"), have acquired 80% of the share capital, and have taken over the management of Essar Exploration and Production Limited (Nigeria) ("Essar Nigeria"). ShoreCan has applied to the concessionaire NNPC for formal consent for the change in control of Essar Nigeria. Essar Nigeria holds an attractive oil appraisal and development project in shallow to mid-water offshore Nigeria on its 100% holding in OPL 226. Drilling of the first appraisal well is planned to commence in 2018. ShoreCan continues building a portfolio of exploration and development assets in sub-Saharan Africa. To date, ShoreCan has taken a position in Nigeria and the Company and Shoreline have been awarded the PT-5b exploration license onshore Mozambique in the 5th Licensing Round adjacent to the producing Pande Temane Gas and light oil field complex.

The Common Shares are listed under the symbol "XOP" on the CSE and under the symbol "COPL" on the London Stock Exchange.
