CNOOC Ltd's Key Operational Statistics for Q1 2018

On April 20, 2018, the Company announced its key operational statistics for the first quarter of 2018 (Q1 FY18). CNOOC achieved total net production of 120.1 million barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") for Q1 FY18, representing an increase of 0.8% year-over-year (YoY). Production from offshore China decreased 1.2% YoY to 77.5 million BOE, mainly due to normal decline of the producing fields. Overseas production increased 4.7% YoY to 42.6 million BOE, mainly driven by production growth of Missan project in Iraq and an increase of interests held by Bridas in Pan American Energy.

During the period, the Company made six new discoveries and drilled 15 successful appraisal wells. In Eastern South China Sea, new discoveries of Enping 10-2 and Enping 15-2 were expected to be jointly developed with Enping 15-1 to become a mid-sized oilfield. Two other new discoveries, Ranger and Pacora, were made at the Stabroek block in Guyana, which represented the sixth and seventh oil discoveries at the block to date.
