Samson Oil & Gas Chairman’s Letter

Samson Oil & Gas Limited (ASX: SSN; NYSE AMEX: SSN) has issued a letter to shareholders from our Chairman which is attached, concerning the Long Term Incentive Plan.

Samson’s Ordinary Shares are traded on the Australian Securities Exchange under the symbol "SSN." Samson's American Depository Shares (ADSs) are traded on the New York Stock Exchange AMEX under the symbol "SSN." Each ADS represents 20 fully paid Ordinary Shares of Samson. Samson has a total of 1,996 million ordinary shares issued and outstanding (including 238 million options exercisable at AUD 1.5 cents), which would be the equivalent of 99.8 million ADSs. Accordingly, based on the NYSE AMEX closing price of US$1.76 per ADS on May 7th, 2012 the Company has a current market capitalization of approximately US$172 million. Correspondingly, based on the ASX closing price of A$0.087 on May 7th, 2012, the Company has a current market capitalization of A$170 million. The options have been valued at their closing price of A$0.071 on May 7th, 2012 and translated to US$ at the current exchange of 1.0146 for purposes of inclusion in the US$ market capitalization calculation.

For and on behalf of the board of SAMSON OIL & GAS LIMITED
