The Los Incas x-1 oil exploration well in the Puesto Guevara Block has been drilled and is being plugged and abandoned after encountering only minor oil shows.

Production Update

May production and sales have been impacted by additional disruptions on the Ecopetrol-operated Oleoducto Transandino (" OTA") pipeline in Colombia. Gran Tierra Energy continued production at a reduced rate while the OTA pipeline was down, selling a portion of its crude through trucking and storing excess crude. Production, net after royalties and before changes in inventory and losses for the months of April and May averaged approximately 18,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.  Production is expected to return to normal levels mid-June.
