DALLAS -- May 29, 2014

Kosmos Energy Ltd. (“Kosmos”) (NYSE: KOS) today announced the release of its
2013 Corporate Responsibility Report outlining its non-financial performance
and its actions to promote economic, social and environmental sustainability.

“At Kosmos, corporate responsibility is a core part of our strategy for
becoming a partner of choice,” said Andrew G. Inglis, Kosmos’ chairman and
chief executive officer. “We recognize that we must be as good above ground as
we are exploring below it to earn the respect and trust of our host
governments, the communities where we operate, and other stakeholders whose
lives may be affected by our work.”

Kosmos set an ambitious agenda for its 2013 corporate responsibility program,
pledging to strengthen its policy framework, improve governance, and manage
human rights. By sharing performance data and real-life examples from Kosmos’
operations around the world, the report highlights the company’s progress in
these and other key areas.

Highlighted performance and initiatives throughout 2013 include:

  *Deepening our commitment to protecting human rights by joining the United
    Nations Global Compact, adopting the United Nations Guiding Principles on
    Business and Human Rights as a touchstone for measuring performance, and
    beginning the implementation of the Voluntary Principles on Security and
    Human Rights;
  *Entering into a Joint Declaration of Principles with the Office National
    des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (“ONHYM”), on behalf of the Government of
    Morocco, setting out our joint commitments regarding our exploration
    activities in the Cap Boujdour block offshore Western Sahara and the key
    principles under which hydrocarbon development would proceed, if any
    commercially viable deposits are discovered;
  *Introducing and implementing our Business Principles into our day-to-day
    business operations;
  *Continuing with our social investment program in Cameroon in spite of
    discontinuing our exploration operations in the country.
