CORRECTION FROM SOURCE/Africa Oil Provides Operational Update and Second Quarter Results

CORRECTION FROM SOURCE/Africa Oil Provides Operational Update and Second  Quarter Results  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/09/14 --   Africa Oil Corp. (TSX: AOI)(OMX: AOI) ("Africa Oil" or the "Company") reports a correction to the second quarter 2014 financial results issued on August 8, 2014. The 17th bullet point should have stated "Africa Oil opened the second quarter with cash of $434.3 million and working capital of $360.1 million. Africa Oil ended the second quarter with cash of $350.1 million and working capital of $245.3 million."  For clarity the entire amended news release is appended. No further corrections were made to the remainder of the news release.  Entering the year, the Company and its partners had seven drilling rigs operating in the region. Four Tullow-Africa Oil joint venture rigs are operating in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya in Blocks 10BB and 13T, one of which is a testing and completions unit. In addition, the Company and its partner have a rig operating in Block 9 in Kenya. In Ethiopia, the Company and its partners in the South Omo Block and Block 7/8 had rigs operating in each block. Drilling operations in Block 7/8 have been completed, and the rig has been released. Additionally, drilling operations in the South Omo Block have been completed and the rig is being de-mobilized whilst future drilling opportunities are being assessed. The Company expects to have five drilling rigs operating in Kenya through the remainder of 2014.        --  In January, the Company announced further drilling success with its     sixth and seventh consecutive discoveries in the discovered basin in     Northern Kenya at Amosing-1 and Ewoi-1. Amosing-1 is located 7     kilometers southwest of the Ngamia-1 discovery along the Basin Bounding     Fault Play in Block 10BB. Logs indicated 160 to 200 meters of potential     net oil pay in good quality sandstone reservoirs. A down-dip appraisal     well with a planned sidetrack is currently being drilled at Amosing-2/2A     with an extended well test planned to start towards the end of the year.     Ewoi-1 is located 4 kilometers to the east of the Etuko-1 discovery in     the Basin Flank Play on the eastern side of the discovered basin in     Northern Kenya also in Block 10BB. Lo gs indicated potential net pay of     20 to 80 meters. Results of Ewoi-1 testing operations are expected to be     announced in the coming weeks.  --  In February, the Company announced the results of five well tests     conducted on five Lokhone pay intervals at Etuko-1 located on the Basin     Flank Play in Block 10BB. Light 36 degree API waxy crude oil was     successfully flowed from three zones at a combined average rate of over     550 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("bopd").  --  In March, the Company announced the results of the Etuko-2 exploration     well drilled to test the upper Auwerwer sands overlying the previously     announced Etuko discovery. Etuko-2 penetrated a potential significant     oil column identified from formation pressure data and oil shows while     drilling and in core, with good quality reservoir but flowed only water     on drill stem test. The results are considered inconclusive and analysis     is underway to consider further options to evaluate this reservoir.  --  In March, the Company announced the results of a well test on the     Ekales-1 discovery drilled in 2013 and located on the Basin Bounding     Fault Play between the Ngamia-1 and Twiga South-1 discoveries. Testing     operations on the Ekales-1 well confirmed this significant oil     discovery. Two drill stem tests were completed and flowed at a combined     rate of over 1,000 bopd from a combined 41 meter net pay interval. The     upper zone had a very high productivity index of 4.3 stb/d/psi.  --  In March, the Company announced the results of the Emong-1 well located     in Block 13T (Kenya), 4 kilometers northwest of the Ngamia-1 field     discovery. The well encountered oil and gas shows while drilling,     however the Auwerwer sandstones that are the primary reservoirs in the     Ngamia field were thin and poorly developed in Emong-1 and the well was     plugged and abandoned. It is believed that the reservoir was poorly     developed due to its proximity to the basin bounding fault and its     location within what appears to be a local isolated slumped fault     margin. This well, which was aimed at establishing an additional play,     has no impact on the potential of the Ngamia oil accumulation or any     other prospectivity in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya.  --  In March, the Company completed a farmout transaction with Marathon Oil     Corporation ("Marathon") whereby Marathon acquired a 50% interest in the     Rift Basin Area leaving the Company with a 50% working interest. In     accordance with the farmout agreement, Marathon was obligated to pay the     Company $3.0 million in consideration of past exploration expenditures,     and has agreed to fund the Company's working interest share of future     joint venture expenditures to a maximum of $15.0 million with an     effective date of June 30, 2012. Upon closing of the farmout, Marathon     paid the Company $3.0 million in consideration of past exploration     expenditures and $10.2 million being Marathon's and the Company's share     of exploration expenditures from the effective date to the closing date     of the farmout.  --  In March, the Company completed a farmout transaction with New Age     whereby New Age (Africa Global Energy) Limited ("New Age") acquired an     additional 40% interest in the Company's Adigala Block leaving AOC with     10% working interest. In accordance with the farmout agreement, New Age     is obligated to fund the Company's 10% working interest share of     expenditures related to the acquisition of a planned 1,000 kilometer 2D     seismic program to a maximum expenditure of $10.0 million on a gross     basis, following which the Company would be responsible for its working     interest share of expenditures.  --  In May, the Company announced the results of the Twiga-2 appraisal well     where the initial wellbore was drilled near the basin bounding fault and     encountered some 18 meters of net oil pay within alluvial fan facies,     with limited reservoir quality. A decision was made to sidetrack the     well away from the fault to explore north of Twiga-1 and some 62 meters     of vertical net oil pay was discovered in the Auwerwer formation at     Twiga-2A, similar in quality to the initial Twiga-1 discovery. Testing     at Twiga-2A is expected to commence in August.  --  In May, the Company announced the results of the Sala-1 exploration well     at Block 9 in Kenya, which tested a large prospect on the northeastern     flank of the Cretaceous Anza rift, which is up- dip of two wells that     had significant hydrocarbon shows. An upper gas bearing interval tested     dry gas at a maximum rate of 6 mmcf/d from a 25 meter net pay interval.     The interval had net sand of over 125 meters and encountered as gas-     water contact so there is potential to drill up-dip on the structure     where the entire interval will be above the gas-water contact. A lower     interval tested low rates of dry gas from a 50 meter net pay interval     which can also be accessed at the up-dip location. Significant oil shows     were also encountered while drilling. The Sala-2 appraisal well located     on the crest of the discovery spud in early August. The Company believes     there is a very strong ma rket for gas in Kenya and have already engaged     in discussions with the Government of Kenya around a fast track gas to     power development and discussions are also ongoing around securing PSC     gas terms.  --  In May, the Company drilled a new prospect in the discovered basin in     Northern Kenya, the Ekunyuk-1 well, located on the Basin Flank Play on     trend with the Etuko and Ewoi discoveries. The well encountered 5 meters     of net oil pay and found 150 meters of good quality Lokhone sands,     although there was a lack of trap at this level within the well. The     quality of Lokhone sands indicates that there is further exploration     potential in this area of the basin.  --  In May, the Company completed drilling of the Shimela-1 exploration well     at the South Omo Block in Ethiopia to test a new basin in the Tertiary     trend, the Chew Bahir Basin, located on the eastern side of the block,     but the well encountered water bearing reservoirs and volcanics with     trace gas shows.  --  In June, the Company announced the results of the Ngamia-2 appraisal     well which was drilled 1.7 kilometers from the Ngamia-1 discovery well     to test the northwest flank of the field. The well encountered up to 39     meters of net oil pay and 11 meters of net gas pay and appeared to have     identified a new fault trap, north of the main Ngamia accumulation. Four     to six additional appraisal wells are planned in the Ngamia field area,     including the Ngamia-3 well which is currently drilling.  --  In June, the Company drilled the Agete-2 exploratory appraisal well     drilled some 2.2 kilometers southeast of Agete-1. The well intersected     water bearing reservoirs at this down-dip location and further appraisal     drilling is planned. Additionally in June, the Agete-1 well was tested     at 500 bopd.  --  In July, the Company completed drilling of the Gardim-1 exploration well     on the eastern flank of the Chew Bahir Basin. The Gardim-1 well     intersected lacustrine and volcanic formations, similar to those found     in the Shimela-1 well, again minor intervals encountered gas shows.     Drilling operations are being demobilized while these results are     integrated into the regional basin model. Seismic interpretation     continues on independent prospectivity elsewhere in the South Omo Block     and the next phase of the Ethiopia exploration campaign will target     these prospects.  --  Additionally in Ethiopia, the Company and its partners completed the     drilling of the El Kuran-3 appraisal well on Block 8 in the first half     of the year. El Kuran-3 was an appraisal of a discovery made by Tenneco     in the 1970's, and encountered a significant but tight gas-condensate     zone in Jurassic Hammanlei carbonates. The well was suspended pending     further evaluation. Options regarding the future of the blocks are being     evaluated.  --  The Company and its partners continue to actively acquire and process     seismic data in Blocks 12A, 10BA, 10BB and 13T in Kenya. In Block 12A, a     674 kilometer 2D seismic program was completed in the first quarter and     the crew has demobilized. In Block 10BB, a 750 kilometer North Kerio     Basin 2D seismic program was completed in the first quarter and the crew     is mobilizing to acquire a 600 kilometer 2D program split between Blocks     10BA, 10BB and 13T over the North Lokichar Basin. In Blocks 10BB and     13T, acquisition of a 550 square kilometer 3D seismic program over the     discoveries and prospects along the Basin Bounding Fault Play in the     discovered basin in Northern Kenya is ongoing and is scheduled to     complete in the fourth quarter. In Ethiopia, the Company, as operator,     and its partner are making preparations to acquire a minimum 400     kilometer 2D seismic program over the Rift Basin Area commencing in the     fourth quarter. Also in Ethiopia, the Company and its partners continue     to acquire a 1,000 kilometer 2D seismic program on the Adigala Block.  --  Africa Oil opened the second quarter with cash of $434.3 million and     working capital of $360.1 million. Africa Oil ended the second quarter     with cash of $350.1 million and working capital of $245.3 million.  --  The Company is currently working with its independent resource evaluator     and expects to release an update to the contingent and prospective     resources for the discovered basin in Northern Kenya in Blocks 10BB and     13T during the third quarter.  --  The company has now graduated to the main board of the TSX and to the     NASDAQ OMX Stockholm main board.  --  Mark Dingley has been appointed to the role of Vice President,     Operations of the Company, responsible for all of the Company's operated     activities. Mr. Dingley has been with the Company since May, 2013 acting     as the President of Africa Oil Ethiopia B.V. and Chief Operating Officer     of Horn Petroleum Corporation. Mr. Dingley joined the Company after 12     years with Talisman Energy Inc. where he served as Vice President,     Middle East Operations as well as General Manager, Peru; Manager,     Corporate Security & Surface Risk; and Manager, Government Affairs &     Deputy General Manager, Sudan. David Grellman, formerly Vice President,     Operations will retire following the drilling of the Sala-2 appraisal     well in Block 9.  --  The Company has a significant exploration and appraisal program set out     for 2014 which will see over 20 wells completed. The program is focused     on drilling out the remaining prospect inventory in the discovered basin     in Northern Kenya, appraising existing and future discoveries with the     aid of the new 3D seismic survey, drilling three new basin opening wells     in the second half of the year and progressing the development studies     towards project sanction in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya. This     significant program in 2014 is fully funded.   Keith Hill, President and CEO of Africa Oil, commented, "We are looking forward to the results of three new basin opening wells to be drilled in the second half of 2014 which have the potential to unlock significant value in terms of new prospects and resources. The ongoing drilling in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya has been quite helpful in understanding the distribution of the best reservoir facies and will no doubt be enhanced by the ongoing 3D seismic survey. We remain very bullish in not only the existing discoveries but in the remaining prospects in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya. Our goal is to open up at least one new basin and to move a significant number of barrels from prospective to contingent resources by the end of 2014 as we move the field development program forward."

Upon further evaluating the drilling results of the El Kuran-3 well, the Company has written off $30.8 million of previously capitalized Blocks 7/8 exploration expenditures in Ethiopia. The $4.1 million decrease in stock-based compensation is result of 120,000 stock options of AOC issued to directors, officers and employees in the second quarter of 2014 versus 5,673,500 stock options of AOC issued to directors, officers and employees in the second quarter of 2013, of which one- third vested immediately. The Company made $0.8 million of donations to the Lundin Foundation in the second quarter of 2014 versus nil in the same period in 2013, resulting in a $0.8 million increase in operating expenses. Stock exchange and filing fees increased $0.7 as a result of costs associated with the graduation to the TSX in Canada and the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm main board.  Operating expenses increased $37.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period in the prior year. Upon further evaluating the drilling results of the El Kuran-3 well, the Company has written off $30.8 million of previously capitalized Blocks 7/8 exploration expenditures in Ethiopia. The $4.7 million increase in stock-based compensation is mainly the result of an increase in the fair value of each stock option granted in the first half of 2014 compared to those granted in the first half of 2013. The increase in the fair market value is primarily attributable to the exercise price being higher for the options granted in the first half of 2014 compared to those granted in the first half of 2013. The Company made $1.5 million and $0.1 million of donations to the Lundin Foundation in the first half of 2014 and 2013, respectively, resulting in a $1.4 million increase in operating expenses. Stock exchange and filing fees increased $0.7 as a result of costs associated with the graduation to the TSX in Canada and the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm main board.  Financial income and expense is made up of the following items:        (Thousands of United States Dollars)                                         (Unaudited)                                                                                          Three months Three months   Six months   Six months                                 ended        ended        ended        ended                              June 30,     June 30,     June 30,     June 30,                                  2014         2013         2014         2013  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------   Fair value adjustment -                                                       warrants                          5          155            1        2,882  Interest and other                                                            income                          387          309          823          681  Bank charges                      (5)          (5)         (11)         (13) Foreign exchange loss             41       (1,349)         (75)      (2,392) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------   Finance income                   433          464          824        3,563  Finance expense                   (5)      (1,354)         (86)      (2,405) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------  At June 30, 2014, nil warrants were outstanding in the Company. In June 2014, all of the remaining 9,546,248 Horn Petroleum Corporation ("Horn") warra nts expired unexercised. The Company recorded a $0.001 million gain on the revaluation of warrants for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as the Horn warrants expired unexercised.  Interest income increased in the second quarter of 2014 due to an increase in cash as a result of the brokered private placement in October of 2013.  Foreign exchange gains and losses are primarily related to changes in the value of the Canadian dollar in comparison to the US dollar. Historically, the Company has recorded foreign exchange gains when the Canadian dollar has strengthened versus the US dollar, and has recorded losses when the Canadian dollar has weakened versus the US dollar.

Outlook  The Company expects to have five drilling rigs operating through the remainder of 2014, one of which is currently being utilized as testing and completion rig. Completion of the brokered private placement in October 2013 increased the Company's liquidity and capital resource position which is expected to fully fund the Company's portion of 2014 exploration, appraisal and development activities.  The near term focus of exploration is to continue drilling out the remaining prospect inventory in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya, appraising existing and future discoveries with the aid of the new 3D seismic survey, drilling three new basin opening wells in the second half of the year and progressing the development studies towards project sanction in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya.  Given the significant volumes discovered and the extensive exploration and appraisal program planned to fully assess the upside potential of the basin, the Tullow-Africa Oil joint venture has agreed with the Government of Kenya to commence development studies. In addition, the partnership is involved in a comprehensive pre-FEED study of the export pipeline. The current ambition of the Government of Kenya and the joint venture partnership is to reach project sanction for development, including an export pipeline, by the end of 2015/early 2016. The governments of Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda have signed a MoU and formed a Steering Committee to progress a regional crude oil export pipeline from Uganda through Kenya. The Kenya upstream partners have also signed a cooperation agreement with the Uganda upstream partners in support of the same objective.  Africa Oil Corp. is a Canadian oil and gas company with assets in Kenya and Ethiopia as well as Puntland (Somalia) through its 45% equity interest in Horn Petroleum Corporation. Africa Oil's East African holdings are in within a world-class exploration play fairway with a total gross land package in this prolific region in excess of 215,000 square kilometers. The East African Rift Basin system is one of the last of the great rift basins to be explored. Seven new significant discoveries have been announced in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya in which the Company holds a 50% interest along with operator Tullow Oil plc. Good quality existing seismic show robust leads and prospects throughout Africa Oil's project areas. The Company is listed on the TSX and on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm main board under the symbol "AOI".
