* Note: The information included hereunder relates only to Maha’s entitlement on Peroá and Papa Terra clusters’ production, considering its indirect participation interest on said assets. It was calculated based on the information made public by 3R Petroleum. The production from Peroá and Papa Terra clusters will not be consolidated in Maha’s financial reporting.

Maha has an indirect working interest of 15% in the Peroá cluster and 9.375% in the Papa Terra cluster, with 3R Petroleum Offshore S.A. being the operator.

Maha is the operator holding 97% working interest in the Illinois Basin. In addition, Maha is also the operator of LAK Ranch in USA. The LAK Ranch heavy oil asset was shut in 2020, but incidental oil is occasionally produced as a result of testing and/ or maintenance activities. Maha is also the operator of Block 70 in Oman with 65% working interest, where production testing is currently being performed.

Papa Terra cluster
The production at the Papa Terra cluster increased 4.7% from June to July. This result is related to the progressive improvement of operational efficiency of the asset.

Peroá cluster
The production at the Peroá cluster increased 12.5% from June to July. This result reflects a greater gas demand in July, due to the new gas sales agreement signed on July 13, 2023 (“GSA”) with the Companhia de Gás do Espírito Santo (“ES Gás”), as well as to sales into the Brazilian spot market.

The GSA has a 30 months term, being effective up to December 2025, and provides for 3R Offshore’s commitment to supply 400,000 m³/day of natural gas to ES Gás. As of today, the Peroá Cluster has a production capacity around 650 thousand m³/day of natural gas and, therefore, any volume of natural gas produced in excess of the aforementioned commitment can be either negotiated between the parties or sold into the Brazilian spot market. The GSA was signed after the execution and enforcement of a Gas Processing Agreement by and between 3R Offshore and Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras (“Petrobras”), for the processing, at the Cacimbas processing plant (owned and operated by Petrobras), of the gas produced at the Peroa cluster.

Illinois Basin
The production at Illinois Basin decreased 10.4% from June to July.
