4 4 LGO’s Trinidad Assets Three asset areas in the prime hydrocarbon play zone: Goudron IPSC (100%) with 2P reserves of 7.2 mmbbls and over 60 mmbbls of contingent resources associated with a future water flood. Active production growth from a 30 well infill development drilling programme now at well nine Icacos Field in the Cedros Peninsula (50%, non- operator), producing ~35 bopd from three wells. Future opportunities for infill and redevelopment Over 7,500 acres of largely unexplored 100% owned private oil leases in the Cedros and in rights held in partnership with Beach Oilfield Limited Additional opportunities under evaluation such as the Trinity-Inniss IPSC GOUDRON IPSC TRINITY- INNISS AQUISITION COUNTRY OVERVIEW A regional financial centre with a well-regulated and stable financial system English common law based legal system and Parliamentary democracy Well educated workforce with literacy rates of over 95%, One of the most prosperous countries in the Caribbean Major oil and gas production and processing centre (> 45% of GDP) CEDROS LEASES

5 5 Why Trinidad? Proved reserves of over 730 million barrels Annual Production: 81,000 bopd Sixth largest exporter of LNG in the world The southern part of Trinidad is geologically part of the Eastern Venezuela Basin, separated by the 7 kilometre wide Columbus Channel The Eastern Venezuela Basin is a very productive oil province with over 12 billion barrels of light oil reserves Over 3 billion barrels have been produced in Trinidad to date Wealth of overlooked opportunities, and a limited peer group and industry interest Eastern Venezuela oil province TRINIDAD Caribbean Plate Boundary

6 6 Trinidad’s Oil Province

7 7 Goudron Field Overview Goudron is located in onshore eastern Trinidad and produces light oil (averaging at least 38 o API) Discovered in 1927 the field has a long history, but only limited production with less than 5 mmbbls produced 154 wells were drilled before 1981; LGO started drilling new wells in April 2014 LGO acquired the IPSC in October 2012 and has since then: Restored the infrastructure Conducted over 70 well reactivations Carried out several recompletions Drilled 8 new deep wells Placed all new wells on stream Increased field infrastructure to handle new production Production has already increased from 30 bopd to over 2,000 bopd and is hoped to exceed 3,000 bopd in 2015

8 SITE ROADS Phase 1: Infrastructure Located in the remote primary rain forests of the Trinity Hills Wildlife Sanctuary Prior to LGO very limited work undertaken over last 30 years 8 Workshops Sales Tank Battery #34 LGO has: Increased sales tank capacity more than 8-fold Refurbished previous tank facilities Repaired bridges and roads Installed a new communications Extended and restored electricity Constructed water treatment Build a camp facility Run new well flow lines Built five new drill pads Drilled & completed 8 wells Commenced 7 more wells

9 Production at Gros Morne level 9 Phase 2: Infill Development Drilling Infill locations selected to have low risk of finding oil pay based on offset wells Where upswept oil is predicted to be present by comparison with nearby wells Well 188 Well 664 Well 64

10 10 Drilling Status Drilling to date: Eight new deep wells drilled in 2014, total 28,754 feet drilled Using vastly improved drilling, logging and completion techniques Well GY-670 had an open hole flow rate of 6,000 bopd and was initially completed on a 12/32” choke at a rate of 1,000 bopd Reported to be the best onshore well in Trinidad for over 20 years Well head photo With just 8 of the initially planned 30 development wells over 2,000 bopd of new production has been achieved Drilling Pad-3 LGO has starting the next 7 wells and is planning for 10 further wells to follow on immediately

11 11 Phase 3: Water Flood Local analogue at Beach-Marcelle Field Wealth of local experience in Trinidad Over 60 mmbbls of 3C resources Existing study for 4,000 bopd capacity New scoping studies starting now Collected critical data during recent drilling phase LR Senergy are leading the technical work

12 12 EOR Production Forecast bopd

13 13 Plans in 2015 Built two more drilling pads Complete the ongoing LR Senergy primary development studies Prepare a new reserves report to reflect the results obtained to date Install a Lease Area Custody Transfer (LACT) meter and an additional 5,000 barrel sales tank Drill and complete at least 7 more wells Continue drilling wells 16 to 30 (perhaps 60+) Initiate FEED engineering for water flood Change photo to drilling or wellhead

14 HSE and Community 14 Installing new well tanks LGO has operated successfully in a Spanish National Park for over 6 years Goudron is located on the edge of the Trinity Hills Wildlife Reserve Operations conducted to the highest international standards of HSE Goudron is has achieved T&T STOW certification All LGO staff are local employees where they work; UK, Spain or Trinidad We are increasing our engagement with the local community

15 Trinidad Success Factors 15 Installing new well tanks A successful hydrocarbon basin with mature, but under- developed, oil and gas resources Effective, competitive and cost conscious oil service sector Supportive government policies and regulatory framework Clear and transparent environmental regulations and process, and experience to apply it to the oil industry Effective and timely decision making – pro-business and essentially apolitical Experienced, well trained, local work force Progressive tax and royalty regime that protects activity from oil price volatility

16 16 Conclusions

17 17 LGO’s Trinidad-focused strategy is paying off. Corporate expertise has been effectively blended with local skills Despite the current depressed oil price LGO’s low cost of operation makes production profitable LGO will maintain its core program at Goudron in 2015; including at least 7 new deep wells and further infrastructure With a supportive State partner/government old oil fields can be a valuable source of revenue, employment and indigenous oil supply LGO hopes to repeat its Goudron experience at Ayoluengo Conclusions

18 18 Delivering Growth through the Acquisition of Proven Reserves & Enhancement of Producing Assets London (AIM): LGO
