Sterling Energy provides the following operations update on activities in the Ambilobe Block, located offshore Madagascar.

Sterling has commenced its planned 3D seismic survey of 1,250 km² over a high-graded portion of the Ambilobe Block. The acquisition is being undertaken by CGG Services SA, on behalf of the Joint Venture Partners, and completion is expected within 45-50 days. A further announcement regarding this survey will be made once acquisition is completed.

The Ambilobe PSC, awarded in 2004, is in Phase 2 of the Exploration Period with all minimum work commitments for the current phase completed. In December 2013, Sterling completed a farm-out agreement with Pura Vida Mauritius under which all costs associated with the acquisition of the discretionary 3D seismic programme, up to a maximum of US$15 million, are carried by Pura Vida. Sterling expects that the carry will cover all the costs of the 3D seismic survey. Sterling and Pura Vida each hold a 50% interest in the Ambilobe Block with Sterling as operator.
