Maha Energy AB (publ) (“Maha” or the “Company”) Announce December Production Volumes and Operational Update on Testing of 107D Well

Production Volumes

The Company’s aggregate sales production for the month of December totaled 79,1031 barrels of oil and 60.455 million scf of gas for a combined average production of approximately 2,877 BOE/day2, before royalties and taxes.

A fire at one of the Company’s end users of gas temporarily restricted production at the Tie Field for 7 days during the month.  All GTW generators were brought on line during the month however, electrical grid stability affected up time on about half of the generator units.  The last week of December saw an average 75.6% uptime on the GTW gas generators at the Tie Field.

Operational Update Tartaruga
Braserv “Rig 149” was mobilized to the Tartaruga Field after a lengthy delay unrelated to the Company, and is currently rigging up over the 107D well.  Once rigged up, remedial casing repair work will commence on 107D before dedicated testing will commence on the 107D horizontal wellbore.  Testing of the 500m horizontal sidetrack, which was drilled and completed during the first quarter last year, was temporarily suspended in the second quarter last year due to emulsion issues at the oil handling plant at Tartaruga.  A dedicated test spread has been mobilized to handle all effluents from the 107D test in order to not interrupt production from the 7TTG well.

1   Subject to minor standard industry adjustments at the time of custody transfer.
2   Barrels of oil equivalent (“BOE”) conversion ratio of 6,000 scf: 1 bbl is used.
