Seacrest Petroleo announces the closing of the Norte Capixaba acquisition

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil/Hamilton, Bermuda, 12 April 2023: With reference to its
stock exchange announcement published on 17 March 2023, Seacrest Petroleo
Bermuda Limited (“Seacrest Petroleo” or the “Company”, OSE ticker code “SEAPT”)
is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Seacrest Petróleo SPE Norte Capixaba
Ltda. has completed the acquisition from Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras of
the Norte Capixaba Cluster assets on 12 April 2023. The closing consideration
paid to Petrobras was USD 426.65 million, which is in addition to USD 35.85
million paid on signing of the purchase contract on 23 February 2022 and up to
USD 66 million of contingent payments that are dependent on future Brent prices.

The closing of the Norte Capixaba acquisition is a key step towards establishing
Seacrest Petroleo as a leading onshore oil and gas producer in Brazil. The
Company now has certified 2P reserves of 140 million barrels of oil equivalent
and ranks as the third largest onshore oil and gas producer in Brazil. Combined
production from the fully owned Cricarè Cluster and the Norte Capixaba Cluster
is anticipated to be 8,064 bbl/d for Q2 2023, and the Company has a development
plan to triple production by 2025. The Norte Capixaba Cluster comprises four
onshore fields in the state of Espírito Santo, Brazil – Cancã, Fazenda Alegre,
Fazenda São Rafael and Fazenda Santa Luzia – as well as extensive pipeline
infrastructure, processing facilities and the Terminal Norte Capixaba offshore
tanker loading terminal that enables the export sale of the Company’s premium
priced very low sulphur fuel oil blend.

Michael Stewart, CEO of Seacrest Petroleo, commented: “The completion of the
Norte Capixaba acquisition is transformative for Seacrest Petroleo. We are now
looking forward to executing on our strategy of profitable growth through a
combination of low risk well activities and operational efficiencies in order to
move towards a dividend paying position by the end of next year”.
