Harvest Natural Resources First Quarter 2012 Operational Update

Stocks in this article: HNR

Budong-Budong PSC - Indonesia

The license commitments have been fulfilled and the partners are planning to request a four year extension at the end of the initial six year term which expires on January 16, 2013.  Prospects and leads are being matured for both the Lariang and Karama Basins.  An exploration well is being planned for 2013.

Tately Budong-Budong N.V. is the operator of the Budong-Budong Block.  Harvest owns a 64.4 percent working interest in the Budong-Budong PSC.

Oman Block 64 EPSA

All work commitments have been completed and post well studies are being conducted.  A one year extension for the license has been granted until May 2013, at which time Harvest must decide whether to commit to the second phase of the license, which has a 3 year term.  

Harvest has an 80 percent interest in Block 64 onshore Oman.  Block 64 has an area of 3,874 square kilometers and was extracted from a pre-existing block (PDO's Block 6) to accelerate exploration for gas and gas condensate by the Omani Ministry of Oil and Gas.  Harvest is evaluating other opportunities in the region.
