* 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 Block 70 in Oman with 65% working interest, where production testing is currently being performed. 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.

Papa Terra cluster
The production at the Papa Terra cluster decreased 51.5% from April to May. This result is explained by the temporary interruption in the asset’s production, due to storage capacity limitation of the 3R-3 platform and a damage in the flexible hose used in the offloading operations (transfer of stored oil to shuttle tankers), as per previously indicated in material facts disclosed by 3R Petroleum on May 16 and May 29, 2023. The operations of Papa Terra Cluster was resumed, and the cluster is currently operating through three wells (i.e. PPT-16, PPT-50 and PPT-51).

Peroá cluster
The production at the Peroá Cluster grew 29.9% from April to May. This result reflects the increase in gas production at the fields, in line with greater buyer demand under the gas sale agreement.

Illinois Basin
The production at Illinois Basin in May was in line with the production in April.
