Amerisur Resources Plc ("Amerisur" or the "Company")


Monthly Production and OBA Throughput Update

Amerisur Resources Plc, the oil and gas producer and explorer focused on South America, is pleased to provide unaudited production from the Platanillo Field and OBA throughput data for the month of May 2017 (the "Period").


·     Total production was 148,544 barrels of oil ("BO") during the Period.

·     Average daily production was 4,792 barrels of oil per day ("bopd") during the Period.

·     Peak daily production was 5,163 bopd during the Period.


OBA Export


·     Total export volume was 132,258 BO during the Period.

·     Average daily throughput was 4,266 bopd during the Period.

·     Peak daily throughput was 5,017 bopd during the Period.


OBA throughput in May was affected by planned and unplanned maintenance of the RODA system. These works have been largely completed and the Company expects to return to daily volumes of the order of 5,000 BOPD throughput in the coming weeks. Platanillo field production was also affected by planned maintenance of certain wells. These operations are complete except for the workover of Platanillo-12, which has commenced.

This data will vary month on month as development, appraisal and exploration operations continue, and also due to the factors involved in operating in the Putumayo region of Colombia.  These factors include inclement weather, social issues with drilling and oil transportation and planned and unplanned shut downs for technical works undertaken among others.  This data has not yet been approved by the Colombian Agencia Nacional de Hidrocarburos (ANH) or national customs and tax authorities DIAN and may be subject to revision.
