Tethys Petroleum Limited: Shareholder Requisition of Extraordinary General Meeting

GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS--(Marketwired - Oct. 20, 2014) - Tethys Petroleum Limited ("Tethys" or the
"Company") (TSX:TPL) (LSE:TPL) announces that its board of directors has received a requisition from Pope Asset
Management LLC (the "Proposing Shareholder") to call an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company ("EGM").
The Proposing Shareholder has notified the Company that it owns approximately 17.3% of the shares of common
stock of the Company on behalf of its clients, a sufficient proportion of shares to be able to requisition an
EGM under Article 35 of the Articles of Association of the Company.

The Proposing Shareholder is seeking to requisition an EGM to consider and vote on resolutions to remove the
majority of directors of the Company (being all of the directors except for Julian Hammond, Marcus Rhodes and
James Rawls) and to appoint David Botting, David Roberts, John Bell and David Henderson as directors of the
Company. In connection with the requisition, the Proposing Shareholder is also requesting a resolution to amend
the Articles of Association of the Company to remove Article 68.

The unanimous view of the Board is that the proposed director changes ARE NOT in the best interests of the
Company and could seriously jeopardise the development of the business.

The Company announced on September 16, 2014 details of steps it is taking to address concerns raised by major
shareholders of the Company following the most recent Annual General Meeting, including the proposed
appointment of a new independent Non Executive Director and the implementation of a Change Agenda in order to
better focus the Company on its objectives and streamline management structures and overall costs.

However, the Company remains committed to considering the views of its major shareholders and is currently
considering this request. On the basis that this requisition is not withdrawn, management intends to provide
shareholders with a notice of EGM and more information by way of a Management Information Circular ("MIC") in
advance of the meeting. Shareholders should read the MIC carefully before reaching a decision with regard to
their votes. A further announcement will be made in due course.

Tethys is focused on oil and gas exploration and production activities in Central Asia and the Caspian Region.
This highly prolific oil and gas area is rapidly developing and Tethys believes that significant potential
exists in both exploration and in discovered deposits.
