Press Release

PetroTal Corp. (TSXV: TAL) (AIM: PTAL) (OTCQX: PTALF) (“PetroTal” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the following sales related update.

720,000 barrels of oil under contract for export from Bayovar. Approximately 720,000 barrels of PetroTal’s Bretana oil has now been successfully tendered at the Bayovar port by Petroperu for the July lifting. Following an accelerated and temporary re-opening of section II of the Northern Peruvian Pipeline (“ONP”) which had been previously closed due to maintenance operations, Petroperu has been able to deliver a material amount of oil to Bayovar over recent weeks. This oil previously entered the ONP in 2020 and was part of the restructured oil sales arrangement with Petroperu, announced in late 2020, with the Company receiving approximately $45/bbl of value. PetroTal will receive the difference between this tender price and the restructured $45/bbl price in the contract, generating over $60 million of price adjustment revenue.

Section II of the ONP line temporarily online. Petroperu recently informed PetroTal that it was able to temporarily pump all the oil from Station 5 (approximately 550,000 barrels) to the Bayovar port. The ONP section II has an approximate capacity of 2.1 million barrels with an estimated 82% being Bretana oil. Section I of the line between pump stations 1 and 5 remains closed due a maintenance delay from ongoing social protests in one community near pump station 1.

Manuel Pablo Zuniga-Pflucker, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented

“We applaud Petroperu’s efforts to resume partial pipeline operations in a safe and reliable way. The true up revenue to be received from this tender was previously anticipated in Q4 2022 and will provide assurance that we can execute our shareholder strategy on time and as indicated in our corporate presentation.”
