3 Growth in offshore projects: Source: IHS CERA, Capital Costs Analysis Forum–Upstream Houston, May 2012 Onshore and Offshore Projects Production Start Dates 3

4 Source: IHS CERA * Deepwater > feet. Worldwide offshore production Deepwater continues to be an important oil supply in the world (not only in US) and will continue to increase in the future. The contribution from deepwater fields rises from around 5.4 Mbd in 2011 to 11.2 Mbd in

5 Rigs Availability Source: ODS-Petrodata, Morgan Stanley Research, October Major offshore drilling basins (rig supply/utilization)

6 Repsol: Offshore presence around the world Morocco USA Canada Spain Norway Colombia Cuba Sierra Leone Liberia Venezuela Trinidad and Tobago Guyana Indonesia Offshore activity in 20 countries (operator in 14) Brazil * Pending of official ratification Portugal Ireland Tunusia Australia * Bulgaria Angola  * Namibia OPERATOR and joint venture NON OPERATOR Exploration Productión  Services Contract in production operations September, 30 th 2012 Deepwater 6

15 Assuring the appropriate human and technical resources Developing time and cost effective projects that consistently provide added value to the business Predicting project costs and schedule in a reliable way Manage opportunities and project risks during all phases of the project lifecycle. Improve communications establishing a common language Mitigating the Risk of project execution though a consistent and proved methodology

16 Comparación del precio del Gas en diferentes mercados (USD/MMBTU)

17 Offshore Guajira wells Statistics by spud year, WD, TD Araza-1 ~ 20 years no wells Spud year Water Depth ~ all the well in shallow water Variable TD

18 18 An integrated project to improve the subsurface imaging through seismic processing Leaded by the Repsol subsurface team in Houston Kaleidoscope

19 Applying state-of-the-art algorithms to resolve complex geological geometries Either in sub-salt environment or in complex thrust belts

20 Input: Delivered study (ies). Output: Updated Geopressure model, shallow hazards and geomechanic results, gathered and completed in the PDDP. Participants: Project manager, manager of Operaciones Geológicas, Drilling Manager, Geopressure Team. Description: The Team coordinator and the Drilling Manager validate and approve the study and its conclusions with the support of the recommendations of the Team specialists. The Project manager enters the conclusions and recommendations of the study in the PDDP. Geopressure analysis process Technical maturity Designation Call for the Geopressure team Data preparation Team meeting Budget approval Study completion Study approval PDDP

21 7 areas of coral-reefs 9 bird sanctuaries including the protected Nariva Swamp Several turtle nesting beaches Cost line geomorphologically complex with 8 zones particularly sensible to oil spills 6 zones of artisan fishing 9 types of sediments, with 4 types of benthonic communities Biodiversity, a must to preserve

22 Summary Improve quality of subsurface image and capabilities in Seismic Processing. Improves well prediction. (Kaleidoscope/Phoenix Project) Multidisciplinary geopressure group to improve on the well prognosis for areas with limited well data available Operational Deep-Water capabilities with an offshore drilling group in Houston which give support, supervise and design all offshore drilling operations. IPM and adequate contracting strategies to minimize risks of cost overruns Repsol’s regulatory and drilling groups have been actively engaged with all of the industry initiatives related to the new and evolving regulations in the GOM. Along with 23 other operators in the GOM, Repsol has elected to join the Helix Well Containment Group (HWCG), one of the two groups approved by BOEMRE, to find solutions for spill containment. 22
