GUATEMALA UPDATE 
Range Resources Limited ("Range" or "the Company") would like to draw
attention to the announcement released by Citation Resources Limited (ASX:CTR)
on the Atzam #4 Well in Guatemala with the following highlights: 
- Production underway from the perforated section in the Upper C17 carbonates
(2,846-2,853ft); 
- Strong initial production performance - flow rate restricted to 100 bopd on
a small 8/64ths choke, well head pressure of 400 psi, production of 100% oil
cut at 36 - 38° API and no water; 
- Operator estimates a flow rate of 1,000 bopd on an open choke based on flow
rates achieved from various choke sizes up to 32/64ths - optimal flow rate to
be established in coming weeks; 
- Current flow rate restricted due to limited onsite production storage tank
capacity of 7,000 barrels - currently 3,000 bbls from Atzam #4 produced in
tanks and ready for immediate sale; 
- Upgrading of oil storage facilities underway, with negotiations advancing
with offtake parties for current and future production; 
- Reservoir pressure testing operations completed - independent reviews
underway to produce updated well reserve report; 
- Current Probable Reserve estimate of 2.3m barrels of oil in Atzam #4 well
expected to be upgraded; 
- Significant Upside Potential Remains Untested in Atzam #4 - 13ft zone in
Upper C17 with better logs than current producing zone will be perforated and
tested in future production operations; 
- Highly Prospective C13 and C14 carbonate zones remain untested above the C17
section, and are the main producing zones in the nearby Rubelsanto Field -
produced over 30 mmbbl to date from 8 wells, 17km from Atzam Field; and 
- Operator advanced with Atzam #5 development well design and location - to be
drilled in 2013.

Range Background 
Range Resources Limited is a dual listed (ASX:RRS; AIM:RRL) oil & gas
exploration company with oil & gas interests in the frontier state of
Puntland, Somalia, the Republic of Georgia, Texas, USA, Trinidad and Colombia. 
- In Trinidad Range holds a 100% interest in holding companies with three
onshore production licenses and fully operational drilling subsidiary.
Independently assessed Proved (P1) reserves in place of 17.5 MMBO with 25.2
MMBO of proved, probable and possible (3P) reserves and an additional 81 MMBO
of unrisked prospective resources. 
- In the Republic of Georgia, Range holds a 40% farm-in interest in onshore
blocks VIa and VIb, covering approx. 7,000sq.km. Range completed a 410km 2D
seismic program with independent consultants RPS Energy identifying 68
potential structures containing an estimated 2 billion barrels of undiscovered
oil-in-place (on a mean 100% basis) with the first (Mukhiani-1) exploration
well having spudded in July in 2011. The Company is focussing on a revised
development strategy that will focus on low-cost, shallow appraisal drilling
of the contingent resources around the Tkibuli-Shaori ("Tkibuli") coal
deposit, which straddles the central sections of the Company's two blocks. 
- In Puntland, Range holds a 20% working interest in two licenses encompassing
the highly prospective Dharoor and Nugaal valleys. The operator and 60%
interest holder, Horn Petroleum Corp. (TSXV:HRN) has completed two exploration
wells and will continue with a further seismic and well program over the next
12-18 months. 
- Range holds a 25% interest in the initial Smith #1 well and a 20% interest
in further wells on the North Chapman Ranch project, Texas. The project area
encompasses approximately 1,680 acres in one of the most prolific oil and gas
producing trends in the State of Texas. Independently assessed 3P reserves in
place (on a 100% basis) of 228 Bcf of natural gas, 18 MMbbl of oil and 17
MMbbl of natural gas liquids. 
- Range holds a 21.75% interest in the East Texas Cotton Valley Prospect in
Red River County, Texas, USA, where the prospect's project area encompasses
approximately 1,570 acres encompassing a recent oil discovery. The prospect
has independently assessed 3P reserves in place (on a 100% basis) of 3.3mmbbls
of oil. 
- Range is earning a 65% (option to move to 75%) interest in highly
prospective licences in the Putumayo Basin in Southern Colombia. The Company
will undertake a 3D seismic program in the near term as part of its
exploration commitments on the Company's Colombian interests. 
- Range has taken a strategic stake (19.9%) in Citation Resources Limited
(ASX: CTR) which holds a 70% interest in Latin American Resources (LAR). LAR
holds an 80-100% interest in two oil and gas development and exploration
blocks in Guatemala with Canadian NI 51-101 certified proved plus probable
(2P) reserves of 2.3 MMBBL (100% basis). Range also holds a 10% interest in
LAR.

Prepared for GIG/Saknakhshiri and U.S. Trade and Development Agency. -
.globalmethane.org/documents/ toolsres_coal_overview_ch13.pdf. Range's
technical consultants have not yet reviewed the details of ARI's resource
estimate and the reliability of this estimate and its compliance with the SPE
reporting guidelines or other standard is uncertain. Range and its JV partners
will be seeking to confirm this resource estimate, and seek to define
reserves, through its appraisal program and review of historical data during
the next 12 months. 
Reserve information on the Putumayo 1 Well published by Ecopetrol 1987. 
SPE Definitions for Proved, Probable, Possible Reserves and Prospective
Resources 
Proved Reserves are those quantities of petroleum, which by analysis of
geoscience and engineering data, can be estimated with reasonable certainty to
be commercially recoverable, from a given date forward, from known reservoirs
and under defined economic conditions, operating methods, and government
regulations. 
Probable Reserves are those additional Reserves which analysis of geoscience
and engineering data indicate are less likely to be recovered than Proved
Reserves but more certain to be recovered than Possible Reserves. 
Possible Reserves are those additional reserves which analysis of geoscience
and engineering data indicate are less likely to be recoverable than Probable
Reserves. 
1P refers to Proved Reserves, 2P refers to Proved plus Probable Reserves and
3P refers to Proved plus Probable plus Possible Reserves. 
Prospective Resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a
given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by
application of future development projects. Prospective Resources have both an
associated chance of discovery and a chance of development. Prospective
Resources are further subdivided in accordance with the level of certainty
associated with recoverable estimates assuming their discovery and development
and may be sub-classified based on project maturity. 
Contingent Resources are those quantities of hydrocarbons which are estimated,
on a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but
which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable. 
Undiscovered Oil-In-Place is that quantity of oil which is estimated, on a
given date, to be contained in accumulations yet to be discovered. The
estimated potentially recoverable portion of such accumulations is classified
as Prospective Resources, as defined above.
