Notes to editors

EnQuest is the largest UK independent producer in the UK North Sea. Oil and gas
development and production company EnQuest PLC, trades on both the London Stock
Exchange and the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm. It is a constituent of the FTSE 250
index. Its assets include the Thistle, Deveron, Heather, Broom, West Don, Don
Southwest and Conrie producing fields and the Alma and Galia and Kraken
developments. At the end of H1 2013, EnQuest had interests in 33 production
licences covering 45 blocks or part blocks in the UKCS, of which 25 licences are
operated by EnQuest. In addition, EnQuest also has an interest in two blocks
offshore in Sabah, Malaysia.

EnQuest believes that the UKCS represents a significant hydrocarbon basin in a
low risk region, which continues to benefit from an extensive installed
infrastructure base and skilled labour. EnQuest believes that its assets offer
material organic growth opportunities, driven by exploitation of current
infrastructure on the UKCS and the development of low risk near field
opportunities. www.enquest.com
