Interoil Exploration & Production ASA : Production update February 2012

The average production in February 2012, compared to the average production in January 2012, was:

Production* February 2012 January 2012
Gross Net Gross Net
Peru   3'343 3'343 3'609 3'609
Colombia** 3'022 2'000 2'930 1'909
Total   6'365 5'343 6'539 5'518

*The production is average daily oil production (bopd) before royalty
**InterOil's working interest in Colombia varies from 50% to 90% dependent on license

Bad weather and heavy rain during February and the beginning of March have caused significant flooding of InterOil fields in Block III and IV in Peru, resulting in reduced production. InterOil is working to sustain the production.

As previously noted, the Toqui-Toqui and the Puli-B fields in Colombia expired on February 29, 2012 and were returned to Ecopetrol. This will reduce InterOil's net production with approximately 450 bopd. InterOil will continue to operate these fields for a service fee of USD 12 per barrel.

Oil has been sold at average sales price of USD 117.12 in Peru and USD 100.88 in Colombia per barrel during February.
