FOOTNOTES

The Payments to Government data are reflective of direct payments made to government entities by Kosmos Energy. These payments are categorized consistent with the Report on Payments to Governments Regulations 2014 (as amended in December 2015) (the Regulations). The Regulations enact domestic rules in line with Directive 2013/34/EU (the EU Accounting Directive (2013). Kosmos Energy has also included supplementary disclosures of payments to governments in addition to those prescribed by the Regulations. Please see the footnotes below for further detail on the payments we made to our host country governments in 2021.

(2) Royalties are paid to the Government of Ghana and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in barrels of oil out of Kosmos Energy's working interest share of production, including the additional working interest in Ghana acquired during October 2021. Production entitlements are paid to the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in barrels of oil based on their participating interest. The production entitlement amounts presented represent Kosmos Energy's participating share received by the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. The value of the royalties and production entitlements disclosed above are based on the annual average of daily Brent prices of $70.91 during 2021. United States amounts above are determined based on actual sales prices. These figures exclude 8.860 Bscf of associated Jubilee and TEN sold to GNPC during the year.
