Magellan Petroleum Investor Presentation

  1. 1. Building Shareholder Returns byMaximizing the Potential of Currently Held Assets NASDAQ: MPET July 2012
  2. 2. Forward Looking StatementsThis presentation contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our forward-looking statements express our currentexpectations or forecasts of possible future results or events, including projections of future performance, statements of management’s plans andobjectives, future contracts, and forecasts of trends and other matters. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this presentation, andwe undertake no obligation to update or revise such statements to reflect new circumstances or unanticipated events as they occur, except as may berequired by securities laws You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historic or current facts and often use words laws.such as “anticipate”, “estimate”, “expect”, “believe”, “will”, “outlook”, “project”, and other words and expressions of similar meaning. No assurance canbe given that the results expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements will be achieved, and actual results could be affected by one or morefactors, which could cause them to differ materially. For these statements, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statementscontained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.Among these risks and uncertainties are: (1) the ability of Magellan to fully realize the expected benefits from the asset swap with Santos in theAmadeus B i and th related gas sales agreement; (2) whether th CA d Basin d the l t d l t h th the Company can successfully achieve cost savings while d li i revenue f ll hi t i hil deliveringgrowth; (3) whether the workovers, recompletions, and other drilling at Poplar will result in increased production and cash generation and/or willotherwise successfully assist in the development of Poplar; (4) whether a CO2 enhanced recovery program in the Charles formation will be viable; and(5) the production levels from the properties in which Magellan, through its subsidiaries, have interests, the recoverable reserves at those properties,and the prices that will ultimately be applied to the sale of such reserves. For a more complete discussion of the risk factors that may apply to anyforward looking statements, you are directed to the Risk Factors section of the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011 andsubsequent form 10-Q’s. Any forward-looking information provided in this presentation should be considered with these factors in mind. Although 10 Q s. forward lookingMagellan may from time to time voluntarily update its prior forward looking statements, Magellan assumes no obligation to update any forward-lookingstatements contained in this presentation, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required by securitieslaws.ReservesThe U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable, andpossible reserves. We may use in this presentation the term "reserves" or "potential reserves" in connection with quantities of oil and natural gas thatwe cannot include in our SEC filings. Reserves are estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related substances anticipated to beeconomically producible, as of a given date, by application of development projects to known accumulations (subject to other conditions). Potentialreserves are our internal estimates of quantities of oil and natural gas that are potentially recoverable. Quantities of reserves and potential reservesare by their nature significantly more uncertain than proved probable and possible reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk proved, probable, reserves,of not actually being realized by Magellan. 1

Poplar Judith River  Shallow gas opportunity Greenhorn  Oil potential – similar to Eagleford play Amsden  New oil pool discovery Jan 12  First well in development Tyler  4 current wells  Additional potential Charles  250 bbls/day  CO2-EOR: pilot project in FY13 EOR: Several reserve development opportunities 6
  8. 8. Poplar – VAALCO Farm-Out VAALCO farm-out in Sep 2011 to explore and develop deeper formations at Poplar – 100% carry f 3 wells i calendar 2012 for ll in l d – 35% interest in all wells to Magellan Objective and rationale: – Prove up reserves and value of deeper formations of Poplar, with limited capital exposure through the exploration phase – Remain focused on Charles and shallower formations – Benefit from VAALCO’s horizontal well drilling expertise Timing: – First well drilled in Q1 and completion operations will be completed by July - preliminary results encouraging – Second well commenced as a horizontal well to test Bakken/Three Forks in June 2012 7
  9. 9. Poplar – CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery Evidence points to Charles formation being a prime candidate for CO2 enhanced oil recovery program Offers the potential to increase reserves from current 10 MMbbls to 40 to 60 MMbbls Initial miscibility tests confirm oil from Charles formation has requisite y q miscibility for successful CO2 enhancement Project assessment milestones: – Laboratory tests ongoing until July 2012 – Physical injectivity test in May 2012 – 5 well pilot project t start i FY13 ll il t j t to t t in Potential additional proved reserves of 30 to 50 MMbbls 8

EBITDAX is not a measure of net income or cash flow as determined by GAAP, and excludescertain items that we believe affect the comparability of operating results.Our EBITDAX measure provides additional information which may be used to better understand our operations. EBITDAX is one of several metricsthat we use as a supplemental financial measurement in the evaluation of our business and should not be considered as an alternative to, or moremeaningful than, net income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance. Certain items excluded from EBITDAX are significant components inunderstanding and assessing a companys fi d t di d i financial performance, such as th hi t i cost of d i l f h the historic t f depreciable and d l t bl assets. EBITDAX, as used i bl d depletable t EBITDAX dby us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that EBITDAX is a widely followed measure ofoperating performance and is one of many metrics used by our management team and by other users of our consolidated financial statements. Forexample, EBITDAX can be used to assess our operating performance and return on capital in comparison to other independent exploration andproduction companies without regard to financial or capital structure, and to assess the financial performance of our assets and our company withoutregard to historical cost basis and items affecting the comparability of period to period operating results. 16
