Notes to editors

Kistos plc was established to acquire and manage companies in the energy sector engaging in the energy transition trend. The Company has acquired Tulip Oil Netherlands B.V., which has a portfolio of assets, including profitable, highly cash generative natural gas production, plus appraisal and exploration opportunities. In addition, Kistos has agreed to acquire a 20% interest in the Greater Laggan Area (GLA) from TotalEnergies for US$125 million. The GLA includes four producing fields and a development project. The effective date of the transaction is 1 January 2022

Kistos is a low carbon intensity gas producer. The Q10-A gas field in the Dutch North Sea (60% operated working interest) has recorded a Scope 1 carbon emissions intensity of 13g CO2e/boe since inception. This compares to an industry average of 22kg CO2/boe for gas extracted from the UK continental shelf. The Q10-A normally unmanned installation is located approximately 20 km from the Dutch shore. It is powered sustainably via wind and solar power and is remotely operated, limiting offshore visits, which are conducted by boat.
