Basis of preparation

The payments disclosed, which are on a cash basis, are based on where the obligation for the payment arose (i.e. at a project or corporate level). Where a payment or a series of related payments do not exceed £86,000, they are not required to be disclosed under the UK Regulations, however this has been disclosed in aggregate at a corporate level for clarity over obligations.

All of the payments disclosed in accordance with the Directive have been made to national Governments, either directly or through a Ministry or Department of the national Government, with the exception of the Malaysian payments in respect of production entitlements, supplementary payments, royalties, research CESS and education commitment payments which are paid to PETRONAS (Petroliam Nasional Berhad, the National Oil Company of Malaysia).

Production entitlements expressed in barrels

This includes non-cash royalties and state non-participating interest paid in barrels of oil or gas out of EnQuest's working interest share of production in a licence. The figures disclosed are produced on an entitlement basis rather than a liftings basis. It does not include the Government's or National Oil Company's working interest share of production in a licence. Production entitlements are assessed on a quarterly basis and are valued at the price used to determine entitlement under the terms of the production sharing contract.

Taxes

This represents cash tax calculated on the basis of profits including income or capital gains. Income taxes are usually reflected in corporate income tax returns. The cash payment of income taxes occurs in the year in which the tax has arisen or up to one year later. Income taxes also include any cash tax rebates received from the Government or revenue authority during the year and excludes fines and penalties.

Royalties

This represents cash royalties paid to Governments during the year for the extraction of oil or gas. The terms of the royalties are described within our Production Sharing Contracts ('PSC') and can vary from project to project within one country. Royalties paid in kind have been recognised within the production entitlements category.

Licence fees

This represents total, rather than working interest share of, licence fees, rental fees, entry fees and other levies or consideration for licences and/or concessions paid for access to an area during the year (with the exception of signature bonuses which are captured within bonus payments if applicable).

Research CESS

Research CESS payments are contractual amounts due under the PM-8E PSC, and are based on EnQuest's entitlement to production. These payments are made to PETRONAS.

Supplementary payments

Supplementary payments are required under the PM-8E PSC and are based on EnQuest's entitlement to profit oil and profit gas. These payments are made to PETRONAS.
