It will increase the group’s total outcome by 114%, compared to the daily rate measured at the end of March. Moreover, it is forecast to increase earnings (EBITDA) by 289%.

In terms of physical assets, the net acreage under lease expands to 4mln acres to 6.5mln acres, and, the reserves jump 142% to 393mln barrels oil equivalent, from 163mln barrels. Additionally, it adds more infrastructure such as pipelines and compression stations.
