The Group's consolidated sales  totalled €472 million, a  26% increase on  the 
previous year.

This increase was  mainly due to  higher volumes  being sold in  Gabon, in  an 
environment of steady selling prices (US$110.6/bbl in 2012 versus US$110.9/bbl
on average in 2011).

Oil hedges had a limited negative impact over the year due to the reduction in
hedged volumes compared to the previous year. For 2013, hedged volumes, as  of 
today, are significantly lower. Impact on  consolidated sales in 2013 is  only 
on 500 boepd  with an average  price of US$87  per barrel. It  should also  be 
noted that there was a favourable movement in the US$/€ exchange rate (-8%) in
2012.

In addition, the Group saw oil sales from the Sabanero field in Colombia total
US$16.8 million (M&P share 50.01%) for the 2012 financial year.

Note that the Group's consolidated sales  have more than doubled in two  years 
(see table below). This upward trend  should continue in the coming  financial 
years with the  increases in  oil production in  Gabon and  Colombia, and  gas 
production in Tanzania.

In Gabon, gross production from fields was 22,000 boepd in December 2012.

The connection  of new  wells  and the  development of  production  processes, 
combined with the improved  performance of water  injection, should allow  the 
Group to increase its production to over 27,000 bopd by the end of 2013.

In Colombia,  the level  of production  remains relatively  consistent. It  is 
restricted by  the  still  limited  number and  capacity  of  water  treatment 
infrastructures (16,450  barrels of  fluid) while  awaiting production  permit 
approval, expected for June 2013.

Up until 31 August 2012, oil deliveries to the Barranquilla and Guaduas  sites 
were made by truck. In September, Hocol took over the marketing and routing of
oil with entitlements at the Guaduas site, thereby reducing the selling  price 
discount compared  to  Brent (down  US$13.6/bbl  on average  from  January  to 
September, and down US$3.9/bbl on average from September to December 2012).

GLOSSARY

Gross production: production at 100%.

Working interest production: gross production - partners' share.

Mining royalties in Gabon: royalties are paid in foreign currencies in Gabon.

Entitlements: working interest production -  royalties paid in-kind -  in-kind 
State share of profit oil + corporation tax if the State's profit oil is  paid 
in kind.

Production sold: entitlements +/- stock.

Sale price: in Gabon,  prices are set  by the State based  on oil quality  and 
benchmark prices. The  mutually-agreed costs to  achieve commercial  viability 
must then be deducted from these prices.

Sales: entitlements  x sale  price.  Sales are  recognised on  the  production 
extraction date.

Taxes and duties: profit oil due to the Gabonese Government is paid in foreign
currencies for the Banio field and in  kind for the Onal, Omko, Omgw and  Ombg 
fields. Corporation tax  in Gabon is  included in the  State's profit oil  and 
systematically recognised as sales.

Q2 sales: sales for the second  quarter are calculated by deducting sales  for 
the first quarter from the figure for half-year sales.

Q3 sales: sales for  the third quarter are  calculated by deducting sales  for 
the first half of the year from the total sales for the first nine months.

Q4 sales: sales for the fourth  quarter are calculated by deducting sales  for 
the first nine months of the year from the total sales for the full 12 months.
