Brian F. Maxted, Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our first quarter results included a number of significant results for Kosmos, as we made good progress on our 2012 initiatives. We have continued to strengthen our portfolio of exploration opportunities with new acreage acquired onshore Cameroon and offshore Mauritania, and we recently completed our 3D seismic acquisition offshore Morocco. At the TEN project on Deepwater Tano, we have had exceptional appraisal results, and we are progressing to submit the Plan of Development in the near future.”
