TGS : TGS Confirms Implementation of Sponsored ADR

              TGS : TGS Confirms Implementation of Sponsored ADR

ASKER, NORWAY (28 June 2013) - Following its announcement in May 2013, TGS
confirms that its sponsored American Depositary Receipt (ADR) program has been
successfully implemented.  BNY Mellon has been appointed as depositary bank
for this program.  Each TGS ADR represents one ordinary share and trades on
the over-the-counter market under the symbol "TGSGY".  TGS' ordinary shares
trade on the Oslo Bors under the symbol "TGS".

The TGS ADR program will offer U.S. investors the convenience of stock quotes
and dividend payments in U.S. dollars with transactions cleared and settled
according to normal U.S. standards.  TGS ADRs can be purchased and sold in the
same way as other U.S. stocks via a U.S. broker and can provide investors with
a cost-effective means of international portfolio diversification.

"We are delighted to partner with BNY Mellon in establishing a sponsored ADR
program," said Kristian Johansen, CFO of TGS.  "We look forward to expanding
our visibility and investor base within the U.S. capital markets via this ADR

"We'll work closely with TGS to broaden its outreach to the global investment
community, with the ultimate goal being diversification of its shareholder
base by attracting more U.S. investors," said Christopher M. Kearns, CEO of
BNY Mellon's Depositary Receipts business.
