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.

Advanced Resources International, Inc., 2009. 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.

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.
