The agreement signed between Petro-Victory and ATP includes a work program to be carried out on two 100% owned and operated Petro-Victory concessions located in the Potiguar basin, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, the Andorinha Field and POT-T-281 block.

ATP will pay 100% of the work program, which initially consists of drilling and completing the AND-4 and AND-5 wells in the Andorinha field and a workover in the CR-2 well located in the POT-T-281 block.

ATP will receive 75%, and Petro-Victory will receive 25% of the net income generated by the production of these wells, until the CAPEX for the work program provided by ATP is fully recovered. After, the net income generated by the production of these wells will be split 50% to each company.

Petro-Victory remains operator of the Andorinha field and the POT-T-281 block. ATP may offer its engineering services, construction and assembly of oil production facilities and well drilling, completion and maintenance services.

The agreement also establishes the commitment to hire a third-party independent engineering firm to certify the reserves of the Andorinha field and the POT-T-281 block after the completion of the work program.
