Notes to Editors:
· Matra owns 100% of the Arkhangelovskoe Production licence where the first exploration Well A-12 drilled in 2007 discovered the Sokolovskoe oil field. Well A-12 produced high quality oil from a Devonian carbonate reservoir (Aphonenski)
· Well A-13 was the second well drilled in the Sokolovskoe oil field and was placed on extended test during 2011 when it flowed oil at sustained rates on long-term test. Based on the results of a study by Equipoise Solutions Ltd ("Equipoise"), a specialist geoscience consultancy and all other field data, Energy Resource Consultants Ltd ("ERC"), an independent reservoir evaluation company, completed a Competent Persons Report on the Sokolovskoe oil field that determined P50 recoverable contingent resources of 15.1 million barrels
· The Arkhangelovskoe Production Licence was awarded on 22nd December 2010 and is valid to 31st December 2030
