Release of Competent Persons Report and analyst presentation in connection with the previously announced Western Desert, Arab Republic of Egypt proposed acquisition
Ahead of the shareholder circular and General Meeting in connection with the proposed acquisition, Cairn has published on its website the associated Competent Persons Report (“CPR”) and a presentation for analysts.
The CPR and analyst presentation contains information regarding production, costs, fiscal terms and reserves and resources by area, including Cairn’s preliminary estimates of a 2C resources production profile, and can be found here: https://www.cairnenergy.com/presentations
The reserves, resources, production projections and cost profiles within the CPR and presentation are consistent with the information published when the proposed acquisition was announced on 9 March 2021.
The proposed acquisition is in line with Cairn’s strategy of seeking to grow, diversify and extend its production base. The portfolio offers low cost production, near-term development and exploration potential, provides immediate operating cashflow contribution and adjusts Cairn’s overall hydrocarbon split towards gas.
