Kosmos Energy Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results Company Provides Operational Update Business Wire DALLAS -- November 5, 2013 Kosmos Energy Ltd. (“Kosmos”) (NYSE: KOS) announced today financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2013, which included a net loss of $44 million, or $0.12 per basic share on the sale of approximately 1.9 million barrels of oil. For the third quarter of 2012, Kosmos reported a net loss of $36 million, or $0.10 per basic share on the sale of nearly two million barrels of oil. Oil and gas revenue in the third quarter of 2013 was $215 million compared with $222 million in the third quarter of 2012. The slight decrease in oil sales volume and revenue was associated with vessel capacity limitations on one of the crude oil liftings in the third quarter. Realized pricing was $112.52 per barrel of oil sold in the third quarter of 2013 versus $112.01 per barrel of oil sold in the third quarter of 2012. Brian F. Maxted, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The Jubilee and TEN field developments in Ghana are progressing on time and budget, providing continued growth in our reserves, production and cash flow from this world-class, highly valuable asset.We are successfully leveraging the funds generated, as well as our strong balance sheet, to steadily and surely advance our portfolio of transformational exploration opportunities. We are poised to commence a multi-well high impact drilling campaign early next year, having recently completed the farm-out of our Morocco exploration licenses and secured rig capacity.” Production expense, which included certain well workover costs, was $33 million in the third quarter of 2013 versus $45 million in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding well workover costs, production expense per barrel of oil sold was $6.82 in the third quarter of 2013 and $8.53 in the third quarter of 2012. Exploration expenses in the third quarter of 2013 totaled $78 million compared with $38 million in the prior year quarter. Current quarter expense included large 3D seismic surveys in Ireland and Mauritania; the cost of the successful Akasa-2A appraisal well which confirmed the oil-water contact in the field; and, ongoing seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation expenditures throughout the portfolio. General and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were $36 million versus $40 million in the third quarter of 2012. Depletion and depreciation expense was $58 million, or $30.52 per barrel of oil sold versus $32.14 per barrel sold in the third quarter of 2012. Derivative expense for the third quarter of 2013 was approximately $8 million, which represents the mark-to-market of the Company’s oil derivative contracts as of September 30, 2013. Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2013 was $34 million; the majority of the amount was related to the Company’s operations in Ghana. In the third quarter, Kosmos added new hedge positions for 2014 production totaling 2.5 million barrels. Subsequent to quarter-end, an additional 1.7 million barrels of 2015 production were hedged. Operational Update The planned maintenance program on the Jubilee Field floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel was successfully completed in late September. As a result of production being shut-in during the maintenance period, gross Jubilee Field production averaged approximately 88,000 barrels of oil per day during the third quarter of 2013. Phase 1A drilling and completion operations continued in the third quarter with three production wells and one water injection well associated with the Phase 1A campaign currently online. Expansion of the gas handling capacity associated with the Jubilee FPSO continues and a third gas injection well is scheduled to be operational in the fourth quarter. With these enhancements, Kosmos is targeting a Jubilee year-end 2013 production rate of more than 120,000 barrels of oil per day gross. Appraisal of the Mahogany-Teak-Akasa (MTA) Pre-Development Area continued in the third quarter with the drilling of the Akasa-2A appraisal well. The well successfully tested the down-dip extent of the Akasa accumulation, and a water injectivity test is being conducted to confirm reservoir communication with the Akasa-1 discovery well. Major contracts for the Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN) Project have been awarded including the FPSO; subsea systems; and umbilicals, flowlines, and risers. TEN represents the second major deepwater oil development project in Ghana, and is forecast to deliver first oil in 2016 with production staged up to a facilities-designed production target of 80,000 barrels of oil per day. Darrell McKenna, Chief Operating Officer, commented, “In support of our development projects, we remain focused on continuing both our near-term and longer-term de-bottlenecking initiatives at Jubilee, and we are progressing the TEN and MTA programs. Exploration pre-drill activities are ongoing and we are in the process of finalizing a rig slot for our initial exploration well in Morocco early next year. In combination with our long-term rig agreement for the Atwood Achiever, we have the rig resources in place to fulfill the Company’s activities in Morocco, as well as our long-term exploration strategy.” In preparation for our 2014 drilling campaign, the farm-out of our Morocco license acreage was completed in October with BP acquiring a non-operating interest in the Essaouira Offshore, Foum Assaka Offshore and Tarhazoute Offshore blocks in the Agadir Basin, and Cairn Energy acquiring a non-operating interest in the Cap Boujdour Contract Area in the Aaiun Basin. In addition, a petroleum agreement was finalized for the Tarhazoute Offshore block, which Kosmos previously held under a reconnaissance contract. Kosmos continues to progress a number of high impact exploration initiatives in Ireland, Mauritania and Suriname. A 5,000 square kilometer 3D seismic program in the Porcupine Basin offshore western Ireland was completed in October. Offshore Mauritania, a 10,300 square kilometer 3D seismic survey is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter, and in August, a 1,400 kilometer 2D seismic program was completed offshore Suriname.
