The interim Financial Results for the period ended September 30, 2015 present the effects of the divestiture of the Company’s participating interest in the CPO-5 and Tacacho Blocks as announced in Petrodorado’s press release dated June 29, 2015. This divestiture, by way of a definitive agreement with Amerisur Resources PLC (“Amerisur”), has strengthened the Company’s balance sheet and eliminated commitments of up to $25.6 million over the next five years while having enabled Petrodorado to participate in immediate and long-term upside through a Gross Overriding Royalty in the CPO-5 and Tacacho Blocks. To date, the Company has received $2.4 million in cash and 9,288,726 common shares of Amerisur in accordance with the agreement. One further payment of $1.5 million is still to be received in early January 2016.


Complete reports and statements are available on SEDAR at and on the Company website



Loto-2 Update


The Loto-2 well on the CPO-5 Block was drilled to a total depth of 10,320 feet and logged with 7” production liner set and cemented as announced by Petrodorado on October 15, 2015. Testing was conducted within the L1 and L3 zones within the Mirador formation where electric log analysis indicated the existence of 54 feet of net pay.  Testing results from Amerisur revealed that L1 tested water and oil with water cut of 96% and 16° API oil and L3 tested water and oil with water cut of 97% and 10° API oil.  Loto-2 has been temporarily suspended pending further analysis of these results. Amerisur, along with the block operator, ONGC Videsh Ltd. (“OVL”), have stated that they will review the testing data together with the 3D seismic model from seismic data previously acquired on the block. A decision by Amerisur and OVL on further wells on the Loto structure is expected to be taken in the next few weeks. Concurrently, Amerisur and OVL are reviewing a number of other drilling opportunities within the CPO-5 Block and expect to formalize future drilling plans before year end.


The Company retains a 2.5% gross overriding royalty on Amerisur’s 30% working interest in the CPO-5 Block as a result of the divestiture of Petrodorado’s participating interest in the CPO-5 Block by way of the transaction with Amerisur as previously announced on June 29, 2015.


Company Outlook


In light of the persisting conditions in the global oil price environment and its adverse effects regarding the financial economics on existing and future exploration operations of the Company, management continues to evaluate the corporate strategy of the Company going forward and to identify and review potential opportunities for the Company’s future as per the mandate of the Board of Directors. Management’s primary focus is to increase Company value for shareholders. An elaborate and careful review of all available opportunities is considered necessary and prudent in order to make the best strategic decisions for the future of the Company. Management hopes to provide a corporate and operational outlook that will provide further clarity and guidance on the foreseeable path for Petrodorado and present potential transaction opportunities for shareholder consideration at the upcoming general meeting of the shareholders scheduled for January 27, 2016.
