Kosmos Energy Announces Third Quarter Results

Kosmos Energy Ltd. ("Kosmos") (NYSE: KOS) announced today financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2016. For the third quarter of 2016, the Company generated a net loss of $59.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share as compared to net income of $60.3 million or $0.15 per share in the same period last year. When adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results, the Company generated an adjusted net loss (1) of $36.5 million or $0.09 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2016.

Commenting today, Andrew G. Inglis, chairman and chief executive officer, said:

"With the delivery of first oil from the TEN project and progress toward restoring full operating capability at Jubilee, our asset in Ghana has reached an important inflection point. We are now generating the free cash flow that will enable Kosmos to continue to grow organically. In addition, the quality of our exploration portfolio has never been stronger. Following our world-class gas discoveries offshore Mauritania and Senegal, we are currently designing a multi-well drilling program, to begin mid-2017, that we believe will target some of the largest un-drilled exploration prospects identified along the Atlantic Margins."

Third quarter 2016 oil revenues were $47 million versus $97 million in the same quarter of 2015, on sales of 0.9 million barrels of oil for 2016 as compared to 1.9 million barrels in 2015. Third quarter 2016 oil revenues exclude $45 million of derivative settlements. Realized oil revenues, including the impact of the Company's hedging program, were $96.49 per barrel of oil sold in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $85.09 per barrel of oil sold in the year-ago quarter. At the end of the quarter, the Company was in a net underlift position of approximately 1.0 million barrels of oil.

Other income during the quarter was $20 million, which is the first payment for loss of production income (LOPI) insurance coverage associated with the Jubilee turret bearing issue.
