Interoil E&P Colombia (IOC) has been awarded a 10 month extension to complete the investment commitments on the LLA-47 exploration block. As per ANH requirements, IOC will proceed with the shooting of seismic in Q4 2013 and Q1 2014, at a total cost of USD 14 million, but will then have more time to drill the required 8 exploration wells by November 29th 2015. The first well is estimated to be drilled in 4Q 2014.

The extension was granted due to delays by the environmental entity in Colombia to issue the necessary permits.

IOC will continue its efforts to farm-down its working interest on the block.
