Dec 18, 2003 01:00 AM

Lundin Petroleum is pleased to announce details of its exploration and development budget for 2004. This budget includes the assets acquired recently in the UK, Norway and Ireland from DNO even though the closing of this acquisition is not expected until during the first half of 2004.
The 2004 exploration programme includes the drilling of eight exploration wells as part of a total exploration budget of $ 34 mm. These eight wells will be drilled in Iran (2), Aquitaine Basin, France (1), The Netherlands (1), Indonesia (2), Norway (1) and Venezuela (1).

The development budget for 2004 is $ 110 mm. The development programme is primarily focused on:
i) the development of the Broom field, offshore UK which is due to come on stream in the second half of 2004,
ii) the commencement of the Alvheim development in Block PL 203 offshore Norway,
iii) further development drilling and workovers on existing producing fields in Venezuela, France, Indonesia, The Netherlands, Norway and UK to enhance existing production.

Lundin Petroleum's President & CEO, C. Ashley Heppenstall, comments on next year work programme: “The 2004 work programme and budget is heavily focused upon investment in the assets acquired as part of the Coparex and DNO acquisitions. We forecast production to be approximately 40,000 bpd by the end of 2004 as a result of the investment programme.”
“In tandem we continue to invest in exploration activity with the drilling of a portfolio of wells which if successful will continue the growth of Lundin Petroleum's reserve and production base."

Lundin Petroleum is a Swedish independent oil and gas exploration and production company with a well balanced portfolio of world-class assets in France, Indonesia, Iran, The Netherlands, Sudan, Tunisia, Venezuela and Albania.
