Nexen Announces Results of Hobby Test in the North Sea

Nexen announces that it has made a discovery in the UK North Sea at Hobby located on Block 20/1N, approximately 1.5 kilometres west of the operated Golden Eagle discovery. The well encountered a significant oil column which was drill-stem tested and flowed at an average restricted rate of 5,500 bopd through a 56/64 inch choke. Early analysis indicates high quality crude oil in good quality reservoir sands. We are planning to drill multiple sidetracks to determine the extent of this discovery. Hobby is part of the growing Golden Eagle area, which includes other exciting discoveries at Golden Eagle and Pink. We have a 34% interest in both Hobby and Golden Eagle, 46% interest in Pink and operate all three. We have identified additional drilling opportunities in the area and have plans for further offset exploratory and appraisal drilling this year.
