Amerisur Resources Plc ("Amerisur" or the "Company")


Monthly Production, OBA Throughput and Operational Update


Amerisur Resources Plc, the oil and gas producer and explorer focused on South America, is pleased to provide unaudited production from the Company's two producing fields, the Platanillo Field and the Mariposa-1 Long Term Test (LTT), and provide OBA throughput data for the month of February 2018 (the "Period").  


·     Total production was 188,984 barrels of oil ("BO") during the Period.

·     Average daily production was 6,749 barrels of oil per day ("bopd") during the Period.

·     Peak daily production was 6,960 bopd during the Period.



OBA Export


·     Total export volume was 151,863 during the Period.

·     Average daily throughput was 5,424 BO during the Period.

·     Peak daily throughput was 5,939 BO during the Period



A workover is currently being performed on Platanillo-6 to change the completion of the well, leading to a production deferment of approximately 300 bopd during the last 3 weeks of February. The well is expected to return to production in the second week of March.

Chiritza Re-Pumping Station Project

The project continues on programme for delivery in October 2018.

These data will vary month on month as development, appraisal and exploration operations continue, and also due to the factors involved in operating in the Putumayo region of Colombia.  These factors include inclement weather, social issues with drilling and oil transportation and planned and unplanned shut downs for technical works undertaken among others.  The data has not yet been approved by the Colombian Agencia Nacional de Hidrocarburos (ANH) or national customs and tax authorities DIAN and may be subject to revision.
