MPET Seeks To Review Strategic Alternatives

Magellan Petroleum Corporation (NasdaqCM:MPET) announced the formation of a special committee of independent members of the Board of Directors of MPET (the "Special Committee") to consider various strategic alternatives potentially available to MPET. The formation of the special committee is not in response to any proposal received by MPET or an approach by a third party. The special committee is authorized to identify, consider, negotiate, and potentially implement all strategic alternatives reasonably available to the Company, including, but not limited to, sales of some or all of the assets of the Company, joint ventures, a recapitalization, and a sale or merger of MPET. There can be no assurance that any transaction will occur. MPET also announced that the Special Committee has engaged Petrie Partners, LLC as financial advisor. Petrie will advise MPET as regards to the strategic alternatives review process. J. Thomas Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer of MPET, commented, "As we continue to implement the CO2-enhanced oil recovery ("CO2-EOR") pilot program at Poplar over the next few months and develop a comprehensive economic model for the project, we believe that it is time to start considering the Company's options. Preliminary results from the pilot are encouraging and we believe that approximately up to 100 MMboe may be recovered from the B intervals of the Charles formation at Poplar through full field development using CO2-EOR techniques. We also believe that CO2-EOR is likely to enable the recovery of additional volumes of hydrocarbons from the A and C intervals of the Charles formation at Poplar. The complete development of the field using CO2-EOR is a major project, which will require a significant investment program."
