Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, reference to business strategy and goals, future capital and other expenditures, reserves and resources estimates, drilling plans, construction and repair activities, the submission of development plans, seismic activity, production levels and the sources of growth thereof, project development schedules and results, results of exploration activities and dates by which certain areas may be developed or may come on-stream, royalties payable, financing and capital activities, contingent liabilities, environmental matters, government approvals and completion of current negotiations. By its very nature, such forward-looking information requires Addax Petroleum to make assumptions that may not materialize or that may not be accurate. This forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors, which may cause actual results, levels of activity and achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such information. Such factors include, but are not limited to: imprecision of reserves and resources estimates, ultimate recovery of reserves, prices of oil and natural gas, general economic, market and business conditions; industry capacity; competitive action by other companies; fluctuations in oil prices; refining and marketing margins; the ability to produce and transport crude oil and natural gas to markets; the ability to market and sell natural gas under its production sharing contracts; the effects of weather and climate conditions; the results of exploration and development drilling and related activities; fluctuations in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates; the ability of suppliers to meet commitments; actions by governmental authorities, including increases in taxes; decisions or approvals of administrative tribunals; changes in environmental and other regulations; risks attendant with oil and gas operations, both domestic and international; international political events; expected rates of return; and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Addax Petroleum. More specifically, production may be affected by such factors as exploration success, production start-up timing and success, facility reliability, reservoir performance and natural decline rates, water handling, and drilling progress. Capital expenditures may be affected by cost pressures associated with new capital projects, including labour and material supply, project management, drilling rig rates and availability, and seismic costs. These factors are discussed in greater detail in filings made by Addax Petroleum with the Canadian provincial securities commissions.

Summary & Highlights

Full Year 2007

Full Year 2008

Year-end 2007 Reserves and Resources reporting planned for mid-January, 2008

Investment outlook l.jpg
Investment Outlook

  • Addax Petroleum’s 2008 investment outlook is driven by:

  • economic re-investment of internally generated funds, balanced between production and exploration

  • conservative oil price scenario assumed for budget funding ($55 per barrel Brent)

  • retaining financial flexibility to expand the portfolio

  • inventory of contingent spending and projects

  • Focus of our 2008 investment in production and development:

  • in Nigeria, building and maintaining production to plateau levels through a continued intense drilling campaign and upgrading of infrastructure

  • in Gabon, continued production growth, in particular through ongoing development of our onshore fields, including expanding export infrastructure

  • in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, initiating an early production development at Taq Taq

  • maintaining and growing robust cash flow generation capability to invest in reserves additions – in particular from exploration and appraisal on the existing portfolio

  • Pursue accelerated reserves and resources growth through exploration and appraisal:

  • 2008 E&A budget of $330 million

  • 15 E&A wells planned in 2008, including 2 near Taq Taq and 1 Deepwater well

  • E&A drilling scheduled in all regions in 2008

Capital budget breakdown l.jpg
Capital Budget Breakdown

  • 2008 capital budget of $1,509 million represents a 41% increase over 2007 budget levels

  • Increased service sector costs, in combination with increased activity, account for the majority of the increase

  • Drilling (development, exploration and appraisal) remains the largest investment item, over 60%, through the utilisation of up to 11 drilling rigs

2007 Capex Forecast

Production outlook l.jpg
Production Outlook

2007 production guidance expected to be achieved – another year of strong operational performance

2008 production growth range influenced by:

  • modest growth and plateau production in Nigeria license areas

  • production growth in Gabon constrained by export infrastructure, expected to be alleviated in H2, 2008

  • excludes potential production start-up at Taq Taq in H2, 2008

2008: 140 to 145 Mbbl/d guidance

2007: 127 Mbbl/d forecast
