In relation to this report, the Company notes the following highlights:

Geological Study:

·    Ongoing regional and local geology analysis.

·    Successfully conduction of geological fieldwork on 16th to 24th February 2023.

5 representatives from UBO (“Upland Big Oil”) and 2 representatives from PETROS participated in fieldwork covering both Limbang and Lawas district.

12 outcrop locations were observed, discussed and analysed.

·    7 samples were taken to the laboratory for further analysis, which will be used to support, confirm and integrate into the overall interpreted model of the block’s petroleum geology. Laboratory works include biostratigraphy, reservoir quality and geochemical analysis.


Geophysical Study:

·    Integration of fieldwork findings and analysis with seismic interpretation. Workstation review planned to be conducted by middle of March.

·    Preliminary identification of prospects and leads depth structure maps for respective seismic horizons.

·    Data preparation and integration for FTG evaluation on structural styles, major & minor fault lineaments mainly in areas void of seismic.


Full Tensor Gradient (FTG) Study:

·    Ongoing data modelling works.


The Company notes within Block SK334 a number of areas of specific interest with analogous geological configuration and reservoir/trap/seal combinations as Brunei’s nearby Belait formation which is host to a number of proven oil and gas discoveries and oilfields. All parts of the Belait structure connect with potential oil kitchens on both flanks in the Badas and Belait synclines; Upland’s SK344 block being immediately adjacent to the Belait syncline is determined to have extremely attractive prospectivity.
