Tulip Oil Quarterly Update

Tulip Oil Holding B.V. (“Tulip Oil” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the latest
quarterly update on its oil and gas exploration and production businesses in the Netherlands
and Germany.

COVID-19
The Tulip Oil Group and its business partners continue to apply measures in response to the
COVID-19 outbreak. Staff have been working intermittently in the office and from home
consistent with prevailing guidelines.

Q10-A development by Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore*
In view of ongoing low gas prices, the production of the Q10-A field remained partially
reduced to “leave gas in the ground”. Nonetheless, a total production of 1 BCM was reached
by the end of August. Since September 1, the production was shut in entirely to allow for
planned maintenance of the neighboring P15 platform. As such 59 million standard cubic
meters of gas have been produced in Q3, compared with 119 million standard cubic meters
in Q2. The average realized gas price was 6.1 €/MWh during Q3 compared with 5.6 €/MWh
in the previous quarter. At the reduced production levels, the Q10-A field continues to
generate strong EBITDA margins.

Steps have been taken to increase production capacity in Q4 by activating existing thirdparty
compression facilities. Preparations continue to add 2 production wells in the Q10A
field by means of one completion of an unfinished well and one side-track. Furthermore, the
Company is considering alternatives for field life extension with long term opex reductions
and reserves additions.

New drilling by Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore*
Tulip Oil continues to mature additional new drilling targets predominantly to appraise
reservoirs near the producing Q10-A field. These targeted reservoirs have been drilled
historically and flowed gas to surface, similar to Q10 before the 2015 “discovery” well.

Onshore German oil development ‘Steig’ in Rhein Petroleum**
The front-end engineering and permitting for the phased development of the Steig field
continues. Dynamic modelling of the reservoirs is ongoing.
