Subsequent Offering

The Subsequent Offering comprises an offer of up to 9,254,403 Offer Shares  to 
Eligible Shareholders at a Subscription Price of NOK 3.82 per Offer Share. The
Subsequent  Offering  is   being  implemented  in   order  to  give   existing 
Shareholders (other than  Ineligible Shareholders, such  as those resident  in 
Canada and holders of Depository Interests admitted to trading on AIM) of  the 
Company as of  October 28, 2013  who were  not invited to  participate in  the 
Private Placement the opportunity  to subscribe for  Shares at the  equivalent 
Subscription Price  as in  the Private  Placement. Each  Eligible  Shareholder 
will, subject to applicable securities  laws, be granted 0.14062  non-tradable 
Subscription Rights  for each  existing Share  owned as  of October  28,  2013 
rounded down to the nearest whole subscription right. Each Subscription Right
will give the right to subscribe for  and be allocated one Offer Share in  the 
Subsequent Offering. Over-subscription  and subscription without  subscription 
rights is  permitted. Subscription  Rights  not used  to subscribe  for  Offer 
Shares will  lapse without  compensation and  be of  no value  to the  holder. 
Shareholders of the Company not registered in the Norwegian Central Securities
Depository ("VPS") will not be eligible to receive Subscription Rights.

Shareholders of  Depository  Interests admitted  to  trading on  AIM  are  not 
Eligible Shareholders.

Subject to all Offer Shares being issued, the Subsequent Offering will  result 
in NOK 35.35 million (GBP 3.70 million, USD 6.00 million, EUR 4.36 million) in
gross proceeds.  The  net proceeds  from  the Subsequent  Offering  (totalling 
approximately USD  5.70  million) are  expected  to  be used  to  support  the 
Company's work activities and provide additional working capital.

Swedbank First Securities is acting as  Settlement Agent in Norway in  respect 
of the Subsequent Offering.

Admission and Total Voting Rights

The Placement Shares will  rank pari passu with  all existing Shares and  will 
represent approximately 42.8 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of
the Company  from the  issue  of the  Placement  Shares. The  Company's  share 
capital may also be increased by up to an additional 9,254,403 Shares pursuant
to the Subsequent Offering.

Application has been  made for admissions  of the Placement  Shares and  Offer 
Shares to trading  on AIM as  Depository Interests. The  Private Placement  is 
conditional upon the admission of the  Placement Shares to trading on AIM  and 
the Oslo Stock Exchange ("First Admission")  which is anticipated to occur  on 
October 31,  2013,  and  the  Subsequent  Offering  is  conditional  upon  the 
admission of the Offer Shares  to trading on AIM  and the Oslo Stock  Exchange 
("Second Admission") which is anticipated to occur on November 28, 2013.

Upon First Admission, the  enlarged issued share capital  of the Company  will 
total 144,284,964 Shares. This figure may then be used by shareholders in  the 
Company as the denominator for the  calculations by which they will  determine 
if they  are required  to  notify their  interest in,  or  a change  to  their 
interest in Wentworth under the  Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure  and 
Transparency Rules.

A prospectus  containing  details  of the  Private  Placement  and  Subsequent

working interest partner, in a  high impact exploration drilling programme  in 
Mozambique. It also  funds our on-going  exploration work over  the Mnazi  Bay 
Concession in  Tanzania in  preparation for  new development  and  exploration 
wells. The Company received substantial support for the Private Placement from
both existing shareholders and new institutional investors. We welcome our new

    Private Placement of 61,696,024 new Shares to raise USD 40.0 million;

  Subsequent Offering of up to 9,254,403 new Shares to raise up to NOK 35.35

                             Directors' Dealings

1. INTRODUCTION

Wentworth Resources Limited  ("Wentworth" or  the "Company"),  the Oslo  Stock 
Exchange and London Stock Exchange (AIM market) listed oil and gas exploration
and production company (OSE: WRL / AIM: WRL.L), is pleased to announce that it
has raised gross proceeds of USD  40.0 million (GBP 24.68 million, NOK  235.78 
million) through the issue of  61,696,024 Placement Shares with  institutional 
and other investors at a price of 40.0 pence per Placing Share.

The Company also announces an offer of up to 9,254,403 Offer Shares by way  of 
a Subsequent Offering to Eligible Shareholders at an Subscription Price of NOK
3.82 per Offer Share to raise gross  proceeds of up to NOK 35.35 million  (USD 
6.00 million, GBP 3.70 million). The Subsequent Offering is being  implemented 
in order to  give existing Shareholders  (other than Ineligible  Shareholders, 
such as those resident in Canada  and holders of Depository Interests) of  the 
Company as of  October 28, 2013  who were  not invited to  participate in  the 
Private Placement the opportunity  to subscribe for  Shares at the  equivalent 
Subscription Price  as in  the Private  Placement. Each  Eligible  Shareholder 
will, subject to applicable securities  laws, be granted 0.14062  non-tradable 
Subscription Rights for  each existing  Share owned  as of  October 28,  2013. 
Shareholders of the Company not registered in the Norwegian Central Securities
Depository ("VPS") will not be eligible to receive Subscription Rights.

Shareholders of  Depository  Interests admitted  to  trading on  AIM  are  not 
Eligible Shareholders.

Subject to all Offer Shares being issued, the Subsequent Offering will  result 
in NOK 35.35 million (GBP 3.70 million, USD 6.00 million, EUR 4.36 million) in
gross proceeds.

2. REASONS FOR THE PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND THE SUBSEQUENT OFFERING AND USE
OF PROCEEDS

2.1 Background

The purpose of the Private Placement is to provide the Company with sufficient
capital  to  carry  out  certain  planned  work  activities  in  Tanzania  and 
Mozambique until December 31, 2014 and  for working capital purposes. The  net 
proceeds from the Subsequent Offering are  expected to be used to support  the 
Company's future  work  activities  and provide  additional  working  capital. 
Depending on  the results  of  these exploration  and development  plans,  the 
Company expects  to require  additional  capital to  fund  the next  phase  of 
operations  from   January  2015,   including  additional   seismic   studies, 
exploration wells in  Mozambique and Tanzania  and field infrastructure  costs 
relating to supplying gas  to the Mtwara  to Dar es  Salaam Gas Pipeline.  The 
scope and magnitude  of such operations  is subject to  agreement between  the 
partners to the Mnazi Bay Concession and Onshore Rovuma Block and is  expected 
to be financed  from additional equity  and/or debt and/or  out of  internally 
generated cash flow.

An additional purpose of the Subsequent Offering is to enable the shareholders
other than  Ineligible  Shareholders  (such  as  shareholders  in  Canada  and 
existing shareholders holding Depository Interests in the Offshore  Register), 
as of the Record Date,  who did not participate  in the Private Placement,  to 
subscribe for Shares in the Company at the equivalent price as in the  Private 
Placement, thus limiting dilution of their shareholding.

Wentworth's current operations in Tanzania

In Tanzania, the acquisition of 248km^2  of offshore 3D seismic data over  the 
offshore area of the Mnazi Bay Concession was completed in January 2013.  Full 
processing has been completed and interpretation of the data is ongoing.

The Company engaged RPS to  reevaluate the Mnazi Bay Concession  prospectivity 
which resulted in  estimated net Pmean  contingent and prospective  (unrisked) 
recoverable resources of 266  Bscf and 637 Bscf,  respectively, from 266  Bscf 
and 823  Bscf, previously.  The revised  estimate of  the Company's  net  P10 
contingent and  prospective (unrisked)  resources changed  from 509  Bscf  and 
1,254 Bscf, respectively, to 509 Bscf and 879 Bscf, respectively. The  reduced 
estimate of net prospective resources is  predominately due to the results  of 
the onshore  Ziwani-1 exploration  well  drilled in  Q2  2012 that  failed  to 
encounter commercial quantities of hydrocarbons. The Company anticipates that
the ongoing  acquisition of  onshore  2D seismic  will  help to  identify  new 
prospects over this under explored area of the Mnazi Bay Concession.

Following the  completion of  the work-over  of three  existing shut-in  wells 
during Q3 2012, the  Company and the Mnazi  Bay Concession partners  commenced 
the process of acquiring 320km of onshore 2D seismic, focusing on the southern
portion of the concession where limited data exists.

Construction by a third party of the Mtwara to Dar es Salaam Gas Pipeline  and 
associated facilities is currently  scheduled to be completed  by the end  of 
2014. Completion  of  the  pipeline  is  subject  to  a  number  of  customary 
conditions precedent,  including  the  execution of  a  gas  sales  agreement. 
Negotiation of the  gas sales agreement  is ongoing between  the Company,  the 
Mnazi Bay Concession partners  and the GoT. The  Directors are confident  that 
the key terms of the gas sales agreement have been agreed in principle between
the Company, the Mnazi Bay Concession partners and the GoT, and that the final
gas sales agreement will be deliverable by the end of 2013.

The Company expects its existing four  wells, three of which are shut-in,  are 
capable of  delivering the  initial supply  of  80 MMscf/d  gross of  gas,  in 
aggregate, and that any additional volumes will require additional development
and exploration drilling.

Wentworth's current operations in Mozambique

In Mozambique,  the  acquisition of  1,016  line km  of  2D seismic  data  was 
completed in  February  2013  covering the  north  central  and  north-eastern 
portion of  the  Onshore Rovuma  Block  which is  adjacent  to the  Mnazi  Bay 
Concession in Tanzania. Processing was completed in Q1 2013 and interpretation
of the data was completed  in Q3 2013. The  Company engaged RPS to  reevaluate 
the Onshore Rovuma Block prospectivity under two scenarios: (i) the case where
all prospects contain gas; and (ii) the case where the Tembo prospect contains
oil and  all other  prospects contain  gas. This  resulted in  an increase  in 
estimated net Pmean prospective (unrisked) recoverable gas resources from  177 
Bscf to either 550 Bscf under scenario (i)  or 32 MMstb oil plus 375 Bscf  gas 
under scenario (ii). Furthermore,  the revised estimate  of the Company's  net 
P10 prospective (unrisked) gas resources increased from 315 Bscf to either 825
Bscf under scenario (i) or 90 MMstb oil plus 513 Bscf gas under scenario (ii).

The Company and its  partners intend to drill  two exploration wells in  2014: 
the first commencing  in Q2 2014,  focusing on the  Tembo-1 prospect; and  the 
second to spud immediately following the completion of drilling operations  of 
the first  well, with  location  likely to  be agreed  upon  in Q4  2013.  The 
partners have secured a  drill rig for  the planned two  well program plus  an 
optional third well. Drilling  of the first well  will meet the minimum  work 
obligations of the second phase exploration program, which is due to expire on
August 31, 2014 (extended from September 1, 2013). The drilling of the  second 
well will  meet  work  program  commitments of  the  third  phase  exploration 
program,  which  the  partners  anticipate  entering  into.  The  third  phase 
exploration program has been amended to cover 12 months in duration commencing
September 1, 2014, but has not yet been committed to.

2.Estimated G&A and operational  costs over the next  15 months to year  end 
    2014

3.The contingent  third exploration  well  is estimated  to be  less  costly 
    because mobilization  and demobilization  costs are  already  incorporated 
    into the costs of the first two committed wells

The Company anticipates that additional expenditures in late 2014 may  include 
field infrastructure required  to tie  the Mnazi Bay  gas field  into the  new 
Mtwara to Dar es Salaam Pipeline and a potential development well in Mnazi Bay
to support future production. The estimated costs of these activities net  to 
the Company is USD 15 million, however,  the Company will not commit to  these 
expenditures until the gas sales agreement is signed. 

The Company anticipates  being able to  secure debt finance,  such as  reserve 
based lending,  in the  event  that the  Mnazi  Bay contingent  resources  are 
reclassified as reserves following completion of  the Mtwara to Dar es  Salaam 
Gas Pipeline and upon entry  into a gas sales  agreement, which will serve  to 
finance additional development activities on the Mnazi Bay Concession.

The Company intends to use the aggregate net proceeds (of up to  approximately 
USD 5.70 million assuming full take  up) from the Subsequent Offering to  fund 
future exploration development activities and for working capital purposes.

As at September 30,  2013, the Company  had cash and  cash equivalents of  USD 
1.81 million. The Group will utilize  this available cash, in addition to  (i) 
operational cash flow resulting  from gas production at  the Mnazi-Bay 3  well 
and (ii) remaining receivables from the sale of its power segment expected  to 
be received in 2013 to  fund additional discretionary operational  activities. 
Furthermore, the  Company  intends  to  use this  capital  to  supplement  its 
operations detailed above  in the event  that the Subsequent  Offering is  not 
fully subscribed.

Depending on  the results  of  these exploration  and development  plans,  the 
Company expects  to require  additional  capital to  fund  the next  phase  of 
operations from  January  2015,  including  additional  exploration  wells  in 
Mozambique and Tanzania, additional  seismic studies and field  infrastructure 
costs relating to the tie-in to the Mtwara to Dar es Salaam Gas Pipeline.  The 
scope and magnitude of  such operations will be  subject to agreement  between 
the Mnazi  Bay  Concession  partners  and is  expected  to  be  financed  from 
additional equity and/or debt and/or through internally generated cash flows.

3. THE PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND SUBSEQUENT OFFERING

Please refer to  Appendix I and  II of  this announcement in  relation to  the 
offering statistics and the expected timetable of key events. Please note that
the Placement  Shares  have  already been  subscribed,  issued  and  allotted, 
subject only to First Admission.

3.1 The Private Placement

  

Overview
The Company,  with  the assistance  of  the Joint  Bookrunners  and  Swedbank, 
invited certain  existing  shareholders  as  well  as  new  institutional  and 
professional investors  to  participate in  a  book-building process  for  the 
Private Placement. The  book-building process  for the  Private Placement  was 
completed on  October  25, 2013  in  which 61,696,024  Placement  Shares  were 
subscribed at a subscription price of pence 40.0 (approximately NOK 3.82)  per 
Placement Share (representing a discount  of approximately 10.1% and 12.9%  to 
the market  price of  the  Existing Shares  trading on  AIM  and on  the  OSE, 
respectively, on October  24, 2013), raising  gross proceeds of  approximately 
GBP 24.68 million (NOK 235.78 million, USD 40.00 million).

The Placement Shares have  not been registered under  the U.S. Securities  Act 
and were only offered and sold (i) to investors outside the United States  and 
that are  not  U.S.  persons  in  reliance on  Regulation  S  under  the  U.S. 
Securities Act and applicable exemptions  from the prospectus requirements  in 
the relevant  jurisdictions,  and (ii)  in  the United  States  to  "qualified 
institutional buyers" (QIBs) as defined in Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities
Act under  an  exemption  from,  or  in a  transaction  not  subject  to,  the 
registration requirements  of the  U.S. Securities  Act and  applicable  state 
securities laws.  The  minimum subscription  and  allocation was  set  to  EUR 
100,000.

Completion  of  the  book-building  process  for  the  Private  Placement  was 
announced on  October  28,  2013.  Notices of  allocation  were  sent  to  the 
investors on the same date.

Settlement of  the Placement  Shares is  expected to  take place  on or  about 
October 31,  2013  through  payment  by  investors  against  delivery  of  the 
Placement Shares  (in  the  form  of  depository  interests  representing  the 
underlying  Shares)  through   CREST  for  trading   on  AIM.  For   investors 
specifically requesting VPS settlement for trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange,
settlement is expected to take place on or about the same date through payment
by investors  against  delivery  of  the Placement  Shares  (in  the  form  of 
depository interests representing the underlying Shares) through the VPS.

3.2 The Subsequent Offering

  

General
The Subsequent  Offering comprises  an offer  by the  Company to  issue up  to 
9,254,403 Offer Shares at a Subscription Price of NOK 3.82 (approximately 40.0
pence) per Offer  Share, being  equivalent to  the subscription  price in  the 
Private Placement. Subject to  all Offer Shares  being issued, the  Subsequent 
Offering will result in NOK 35.35 million (GBP 3.70 million, USD 6.00 million,
EUR 4.36 million) in gross proceeds.

The Subsequent  Offering  is  being  implemented in  order  to  give  existing 
Shareholders registered in the VPS  (other than Ineligible Shareholders,  such 
as those  resident in  Canada  and holders  of  Depository Interests)  of  the 
Company as of October 28, 2013 (as  registered in the VPS on the Record  Date) 
who were not invited to participate  in the Private Placement the  opportunity 
to subscribe for Shares at the equivalent Subscription Price as in the Private
Placement.

Eligible Shareholders will be  granted non-tradable Subscription Rights  that, 
subject to applicable laws, provide  preferential rights to subscribe for  and 
be allocated Offer  Shares in the  Subsequent Offering. Over-subscription  and 
subscription without Subscription Rights will be permitted, however, there can
be no assurance that Offer Shares will be allocated for such subscriptions.

Subscription Rights and  Offer Shares will  not be issued  or sold in  certain 
jurisdictions or to residents of certain jurisdictions.



The completion of the Subsequent Offering is subject to Second Admission.

Subscription Rights
Eligible Shareholders, being  shareholders of  the Company  as of  the end  of 
October 28, 2013, as appearing in the  VPS on the Record Date, except for  (i) 
those shareholders who were  invited to participate  in the Private  Placement 
(themselves or  through their  respective affiliates),  (ii) shareholders  not 
registered in the VPS and (iii) shareholders restricted from participating due
to laws and regulations in their home country jurisdiction (including Canada),
will be granted non-tradable Subscription  Rights giving a preferential  right 
to subscribe for, and be allocated,  Offer Shares in the Subsequent  Offering. 
Each Eligible  Shareholder will,  subject to  applicable securities  laws,  be 
granted 0.14062 non-tradable Subscription Right for each existing Share  owned 
as of October  28, 2013.  The number of  Subscription Rights  granted to  each 
Eligible Shareholder will be  rounded down to  the nearest whole  Subscription 
Right.

Each Subscription Right will, subject to applicable securities laws, give  the 
right to subscribe  for and  be allocated one  Offer Share  in the  Subsequent 
Offering. Over-subscription (i.e. subscription for more Offer Shares than  the 
number of Subscription Rights held  by the subscriber entitles the  subscriber 
to  be  allocated)  and  subscription  without  Subscription  Rights  will  be 
permitted, however,  there can  be  no assurance  that  Offer Shares  will  be 
allocated for such subscriptions.

The Subscription Rights must be used to subscribe for Offer Shares before  the 
end of  the  Subscription Period  (i.e.  November  20, 2013  at  16:30  (CET). 
Subscription Rights that are not exercised  before November 20, 2013 at  16:30 
(CET) will have no  value and will lapse  without compensation to the  holder. 
Holders of Subscription Rights should note that subscriptions for Offer Shares
must be made in accordance with the  procedures set out in the Prospectus  and 
that the  holding  of Subscription  Rights  in  itself does  not  represent  a 
subscription for Offer Shares.

Ineligible  Shareholders  will  not  receive  Subscription  Rights.   Eligible 
Shareholders should  be aware  that  the exercise  of Subscription  Rights  by 
holders who are located  in countries outside of  Norway may be restricted  or 
prohibited by applicable securities laws.

Rights is October 28, 2013, as registered in the shareholders register in  VPS 
at the end of the Record Date, i.e. on October 31, 2013. On October 28,  2013, 
the Shares were traded on  the Oslo Stock Exchange  inclusive of the right  to 
receive Subscription Rights.  From the  trading day following  this day  (i.e. 
October 29, 2013), the  Shares were traded exclusive  of the right to  receive 
Subscription Rights. Transaction in the existing Shares made on or before this
date, but which have  not been registered  in the VPS  within the Record  Date

date, the first trading  date, the payment  date and the  date of delivery  of
