Anshof Well Site Construction Underway - Drilling Dec.

ADX Energy Ltd (ASX:ADX) ASX RELEASE ADX Energy Ltd | ABN 50 009 058 646 -Registered and Principal Office Australia Suite 14, 210 Bagot Road, Subiaco WA 6008, Australia Telephone: +61 8 9381 4266 | admin@adxenergy.com.au | adxenergy.com.au 24 November 2021 Anshof Well Site Construction Underway for Commencement of Drilling in December “ ADX secures final environmental approvals and commences site works.” Key points: ADX has received final environmental authority approvals and commenced site works for the drilling of the Anshof prospect in the ADX-AT-II license in Upper Austria. (ref. figures 1 and 1a). Rig mobilisation is expected in mid-December and well spud approximately 3 to 4 days afterwards. The well will take approximately 17 days to drill and evaluate. The well site includes up to 3 surface drilling locations approved by the regulatory Authority. The first well will be drilled from the Anshof-3 surface location. (ref. site map in figure 2). The Anshof-3 surface location is outside an area which requires additional approval by the Forestry Authority. Drilling from this location has enabled the commencement of well site construction to meet a rig slot available in December 2021. ADX expects approval by the Forestry Authority in about 2 weeks from today. The Anhof-3 well site enables a rapid pathway to commercial production given the drilling location is only 50 metres from an oil and gas pipeline bundle which can be accessed to process and export crude oil. If the Anshof well is successful, the combination of proven, highly productive reservoirs, as well as close proximity to infrastructure that is accessible on favourable terms, will provide excellent economics and rapid cash flow. Anshof operations are not expected to be affected by the recent COVID-19 related lock downs in Austria. European Cross border agreements for critical operations allowing for uninterrupted supply of materials are in place. ADX drilling contractor RED Drilling & Services GmbH (“RED”) has a successful track record of drilling wells during previous Europe wide lockdowns within time and budget. An overview of the Anshof Prospect is available in Appendix 1 at the end of this release. It includes the results of an independent prospect review undertaken by RISC Advisory Pty Ltd (“RISC”). ADX announced a farmout to ASX listed Xstate Resources Limited to fund 40% of well costs to earn a 20% participating interest in the Anshof Prospect. Refer to ASX release dated 22 November 2021. ADX Energy Ltd (ASX:ADX) ASX RELEASE ADX Energy Ltd | ABN 50 009 058 646 -Registered and Principal Office Australia Suite 14, 210 Bagot Road, Subiaco WA 6008, Australia Telephone: +61 8 9381 4266 | admin@adxenergy.com.au | adxenergy.com.au ADX Energy Ltd ( ASX Code: ADX ) is pleased to advise that it has obtained the final environmental approval required to commence well site construction for the Anshof well location in the ADX-AT-II exploration license in Upper Austria. Well site construction for up to three wells is expected to be completed by mid-December enabling rig mobilisation and the expected spud of the Anshof exploration well to be drilled from the Anshof-3 Well surface location during the third week of December 2021. The Anshof-3 Well surface location is outside an area requiring approval by the Forestry Authority. Drilling from this location has enabled the commencement of well site construction to meet a rig slot available in December 2021. ADX expects approval by the Forestry Authority for two additional well locations in about 2 weeks from today. Due to the high chance of success for the Anshof-3 Well, the pre investment in further well locations that enable follow up appraisal and development drilling makes good economic sense because it will facilitate field development fast tracking.

The Anshof-3 Well location is approximately 50 metres from an oil and gas pipeline bundle which can be accessed to process and export crude. On the 22 nd of November 2020 ADX announced the agreement with RAG Exploration & Production GmbH (RAG E&P) of commercial terms for the access of future oil and gas production from ADX Upper Austria exploration and appraisal licenses in Upper Austria which surround producing fields and infrastructure operated by RAG E&P. The agreement enables the reduction of capital expenditures and the time taken from drilling to commercial production due to the ability to tie into RAG E&P’s existing hydrocarbon gathering, processing and storage facilities which are connected to Austria’s oil and gas infrastructure network.

ADX has finalised the key materials and services required for the well including a multi well call out contract with RED Drilling & Services GmbH (RED). The agreement with RED provides contractual terms for multiple wells subject to rig availability. The first rig slot has been secured for the spud of the Anshof-3 well in December 2021 using the RED E-200 drilling rig. The 250 tons hook load RED Rig E-200 rig which has been contracted to drill the Anshof-3 well ADX signed a drilling contract with RED during the second week of November 2021. The agreement with RED provides contractual terms for multiple wells subject to rig slot availability over a 36 month period. RED provides ADX with highly professional services and has extensive familiarity of Austrian working conditions. RED also has an excellent reputation with the local community, due to a long outstanding safety and environmental performance record and a well-trained local drilling staff sourced from Upper Austria. RED will be drilling a well in Upper Austria prior to the ADX operated Anshof-3 well which will minimise rig mobilisation costs. ADX CEO, Mr Paul Fink, said, “ADX and its farmin partner Xstate are looking forward to the drilling of the Anshof prospect which has the potential for doubling ADX production within a year and an expected peak production in the order of 1,500 bopd for the best technical resource case. ADX has been able to demonstrate that in Austria it is possible to spud a well in less than a year from the exploration license award. On behalf of the Board, I commend the highly experienced and hardworking Austrian operations and management team who have, in an extremely short amount of time, developed a new 3D seismic covered prospect with a large upside potential, executed a rig contract under strict EU bidding laws, and obtained all necessary approvals in an OECD country with a low corruption perception index and very high environmental standards. Our team will be working hard over the coming Christmas period to make this well a success for ADX, its partners and its shareholders”.

The ADX in house team has developed a new structural model constraining the nearby producing Voitsdorf, Bad Hall and Pfarrkirchen oil fields which has resulted in identification of a number of on trend prospects and appraisal opportunities. Success at Anshof-3 will validate the new structural model and de-risk multiple follow up prospects. Anshof-3 has a best technical case prospective resource potential of 6.6 MMBOE with significant upside potential in the primary Eocene sandstone reservoir objective. The well plan includes a deeper Cenomanian secondary target with a best technical resource potential of 2.1 MMBOE. Original Resources Reporting Date: Upper Austria Exploration was on 30/11/2020, estimates were further revised on 30/3/21.

RISC has reviewed the resources in accordance with the Society of Petroleum Engineers internationally recognised Petroleum Resources Management System 2018 (‘PRMS’). RISC’s methodology was to review the evaluation, probabilistic resource evaluation and geologic risking carried out by ADX. Details of the findings of their review were presented in a report. RISC have not conducted a site visit. RISC has reviewed the Anshof Prospect and found the following Prospective Resource and Geological Risk assessment to be reasonable. A summary of RISC’s findings for the Anshof prospect is shown in the Table 1 below. Notes to Table 1 : 1. Prospective Resources are those estimated quantities of petroleum that may potentially be recovered by the application of a future development project(s) related to undiscovered accumulations. These estimates have both an associated risk of discovery and a risk of development. Further explorations appraisal and evaluation is required to determine the existence of a significant quantity of potentially moveable hydrocarbons. 2. At least a 90% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the estimate. 3. At least a 50% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the estimate. 4. At least a 10% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the estimate. 5. The arithmetic average of the probability distribution. 6. BOE means barrels of oil equivalent In RISC opinion, the method of utilising a mapping based net-rock-volume (‘NRV’) in the prospective resource assessment in the Anshof Prospect may result in a conservative volumetric assessment. RISC was not provided with an assessment of the deeper Cenomanian secondary objective for Anshof.
