2015 Reserves Update

Microsoft Word - Target ASX 250915 Reserves Update Final.docx

  • Proven Reserves of 0.27 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOe)

  • Proven and Probable reserves of 0.51 MMBOe

  • Total Reserves and Resources of 1.56 MMBOe

Target Energy Limited's ('Target') 30 June 2015 proven oil reserves have been assessed at 0.27 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOe), with total Proved, Possible and Probable Reserves assessed at 0.51 MMBOe, according to recent independent Reserves Estimates.

The Reserves Estimates, effective 30 June 2015, encompass the Company's interests in its Texas and Louisiana oil and gas producing properties.

Commenting on the results, Target Energy's Managing Director Laurence Roe said: 'The Company notes the reduction in reserves in comparison to 2014. While this is primarily a consequence of the drop in oil prices, we also note that in a number of Fairway wells, there are additional pay zones that are yet to be completed for production and thus have not been able to be included in the reserves as there are no local analogs.

'In addition, as noted by the auditor, Target also has significant additional acreage in the Fairway area for additional development, however many of these potential locations are too far removed from existing wells to be assigned reserves. Despite the very challenging times, the Company continues to consider a range of options to add value to its assets.'

The Reserves Reports were commissioned by Target and conducted by Texas‐based independent consultants T.J. Smith & Company, Inc. ('TJSCO': Fairway and East Chalkley Projects) and Harper & Associates, Inc. ('Harper': Section 28 and Merta Projects) in accordance with the definitions and guidelines set out in the 2007 Petroleum Resources Management System approved by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. A summary of the results is shown as Table 1 (below) with further details included in the Appendices.

Notes:

Table 1: Target Energy Net Reserves & Resources - 30 June 2015

  • Reserves are stated net to Target's working interest and after deductions for royalty payments.

  • All reserves and resource estimates were prepared using deterministic methods. All aggregation was performed by arithmetic summation.

  • Cautionary note: the aggregate 1P estimate may be a very conservative estimate and the aggregate 3P estimate may be very optimistic due to the portfolio effects of arithmetic summation. Similarly, the aggregate 2C + 3C resource estimate may be very optimistic due to the portfolio effects of arithmetic summation.

  • TJSCO did not review the Contingent Resources for the East Chalkley Field. The Contingent Resources are derived from the Independent Technical Specialist's Report on Target Energy Limited's interests in the East Chalkley Field, (August 2012) by Risc Operations Pty Ltd.

  • Contingent resources are defined as quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations by application of development projects but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable due to one or more contingencies. Contingent Resources are a class of discovered recoverable resources as defined in the SPE‐PRMS.

  • 'bbl(s)' means barrel(s); 'bopd' or 'boepd' means barrels of oil per day and barrels of oil equivalent per day, respectively

  • 'boe' means barrels of oil equivalent. Target reports boe using a gas to oil conversion based on equivalent thermal energy , i.e. 6000 cubic feet of gas = 1 barrel of oil

  • 'M' prefix means thousand; 'MM' prefix means million; 'scf' means standard cubic feet

  • Production quantities are measured at the leases via a sales meter (gas) or in oil storage tanks.

  1. APPENDIX 1

    The following table provides TJSCO's reserve estimates for Target's net interest in the Fairway Project. Methodology is described below. TJSCO was not asked to assess the contingent or prospective resource potential of the Fairway Project. The Operator of the project is Trilogy Operating, Inc. Leases are described in Table 3. Additional drilling is required to develop the leases.

  2. Reserves are stated net to Target's working interest and after deductions for royalty payments.

  3. 2. Possible reserves are those reserves that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. There is a 10% probability that the quantities actually recovered will be equal to or exceed the sum of the Proved plus Probable plus Possible (3P) reserves.
