Nostrum Oil & Gas plc
Approach to Board of Tethys Petroleum Limited ("Tethys") regarding a possible offer

Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC (LSE: NOG) ("Nostrum") announces that, following the recent announcements by Tethys regarding its strategic collaboration with and financing by AGR Energy, Nostrum has made a further approach to the Board of Tethys regarding a possible offer for the entire issued share capital of Tethys. Additionally, Nostrum has indicated that in connection with the possible offer it is prepared to provide interim funding to Tethys on terms at least as advantageous to Tethys as those proposed by AGR Energy to support short term liquidity for Tethys, both prior to any shareholder vote and following such shareholder vote whilst any regulatory approvals are obtained.

The possible offer Nostrum has proposed to the Board of Tethys would provide for a price of C$0.2185 per Tethys share (whether in cash or Nostrum shares or a combination of both, as determined by Nostrum). This price represents a premium of 15% to the price at which AGR Energy has agreed to subscribe for new ordinary shares in Tethys (as announced by Tethys on 1 July 2015). This price represents a premium of 46% to the closing market price of an ordinary share on the TSX of C$0.15 on 9 July 2015 and a premium of 143% to the closing market price of an ordinary share on the TSX of C$0.09 on 14 May, the day prior to the announcement by Tethys of a convertible loan financing with AGR Energy.
