2014 SECOND QUARTER OPERATING RESULTS


--  For the second quarter of 2014, the Company recorded total corporate
    funds flow from operations of $4.6 million ($0.08 per share) and a net
    loss attributable to common shareholders of $0.1 million ($0.01 loss per
    share). For the first six months of 2014, corporate funds flow from
    operations was $9.0 million ($0.16 per share) and a net loss
    attributable to common shareholders of $0.3 million ($0.01 loss per
    share).
--  At June 30, 2014 Pan Orient had $43.8 million of working capital and
    non-current deposits, and no long-term debt. In addition, Pan Orient had
    $7.5 million of equipment inventory to be utilized for future Thailand
    and Indonesia operations which is included in exploration and evaluation
    assets in the consolidated statement of financial position. Working
    capital and non-current deposits were comprised of $27.2 million cash,
    $2.5 million of non-current deposits, $12.9 million of Canadian taxes
    receivable and other receivables of $7.0 million and less payables of
    $5.8 million.
--  Capital expenditures were $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2014
    and included $2.6 million in Canada associated with the Sawn Lake SAGD
    demonstration project of Andora Energy Corporation ("Andora"), which is
    owned 71.8% by Pan Orient and consolidated with Pan Orient for reporting
    purposes, $0.9 million in Thailand and $0.7 million in Indonesia. During
    the first six months of 2014, capital expenditures were $15.2 million
    with expenditures of $6.7 million in Canada associated with the Sawn
    Lake SAGD demonstration project, $3.4 million in Thailand for drilling
    the L53A Central well, workovers, other exploration costs and inventory,
    and $5.0 million in Indonesia for completion of seismic programs and
    other exploration costs.
--  Capital expenditures for the first half of 2014 were funded by $9.0
    million of funds flow from operations, $2.7 million from a joint venture
    partner repurchasing a gross overriding royalty interest at Sawn Lake as
    part of an overall agreement entered into in 2013 for the advancement of
    the Sawn Lake demonstration project and the remaining $3.5 million
    through existing working capital.
--  At June 30, 2014 Pan Orient had outstanding capital commitments of $0.1
    million in Thailand associated with Concession L53, $8.7 million in
    Indonesia associated with the East Jabung PSC, and $0.4 million in
    Canada for natural gas pipeline tie-in and tariff charges associated
    with the Sawn Lake SAGD demonstration project of Andora.
--  Thailand
    --  In the second quarter of 2014 Concession L53 average oil sales
        increased 8% to 769 BOPD and generated $5.4 million in after tax
        funds flow from operations, or $77.45 per barrel. This compares with
        oil sales in the first quarter of 2014 of 712 BOPD and $5.0 million
        in after tax funds flow from operations, or $77.69 per barrel. Oil
        sales increased 8% during the second quarter of 2014 primarily due
        to flush production from successfully perforating a new zone at the
        L53-D2ST3 well in May 2014.
    --  On a per barrel basis, after tax funds flow from operations of
        $77.45 in the second quarter of 2014 was consistent with the first
        quarter of 2014 and resulted from oil sales of $104.05,
        transportation expenses of $1.66, operating expenses of $12.63,
        general and administrative expenses of $7.28 and a royalty to the
        Thailand government of $5.20, and there was interest income
        equivalent to $0.17. Oil revenue during the first half 2014 was
        allocated 21% to expenses for transportation, operating, and general
        & administrative, 5% to the government of Thailand for royalties,
        and 74% to Pan Orient.
    --  No wells were drilled in the second quarter of 2014 as the Company
        waited for EIA approval for several locations, including the L53A-
        North prospect in the northeastern portion of Concession L53 which
        is part of the planned three well drilling program for the remainder
        of 2014. The L53-A Central exploration well drilled during the first
        quarter of 2014 failed to encounter commercial hydrocarbons and was
        abandoned.
    --  Capital expenditures during the second quarter of 2014 at Concession
        L53 were $0.9 million in Thailand primarily for workovers, final
        drilling costs for the L53-A Central exploration well and equipment
        inventory. For the first half of 2014 capital expenditures at
        Concession L53 have been $3.4 million for drilling the L53A Central
        well, workovers, equipment inventory and other exploration costs and
        inventory.
    --  The Company elected not to continue exploration actives at
        Concession L45 and the concession expired on April 27, 2014.
--  Indonesia
    --  Capital expenditures in Indonesia were $5.0 million during the first
        half of 2014, with $4.3 million in the first quarter and $0.7
        million in the second quarter. On a year to date basis, there have
        been capital expenditures of $4.5 million at the East Jabung PSC
        related primarily to completing the 440 kilometer 2D seismic
        program, $0.4 million at the Batu Gajah PSC related to capitalized
        general and administrative expenses, and $0.1 million for equipment
        inventory.
--  Canada
    --  Capital expenditures for the Sawn Lake SAGD demonstration project
        were $6.7 million during the first half of 2014, with $4.1 million
        in the first quarter and $2.6 million in the second quarter. These
        expenditures related to construction of the SAGD facility for steam
        generation, water handling and oil treating, and for final
        installation of the water source and disposal facilities.

OUTLOOK


--  Thailand
    --  On August 8, 2014 Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") approval
        was received for six exploration drilling locations with four
        individual well cellars each. Production EIA approval was also part
        of all six location applications, allowing for accelerated long term
        production in the event of success.
    --  The L53A-North location was one of the six locations approved with
        well construction to commence in approximately seven days and be
        completed in approximately seven weeks allowing for rain delays
        during the current early monsoon period. A number of steps have been
        taken to mitigate the impact of the monsoon rains on construction
        including covered storage of earth fill and construction of a berm
        around the well pad perimeter.
    --  The Company currently plans to drill one appraisal well at each of
        the L53-D East field and the L53-B prospect prior to drilling of the
        L53A-North exploration well. The L53-D East location will be
        targeting an undrilled fault compartment and the L53-B location will
        be targeting numerous sands 20 to 25 meters up structure from the
        original L53-B well that was drilled in 2011 and produced small
        quantities of oil from two sandstone intervals prior to being shut-
        in. No reserves were attributed to the targets in either of these
        appraisal wells in the 2013 year end reserves report.
    --  Drilling of the first well of the three well drilling program is
        anticipated to commence at the end of September with each well
        taking 10 to 14 days to completion.
    --  Production is currently 583 BOPD and averaged 657 BOPD in July and
        610 BOPD over the past 30 days. Oil production levels have been
        impacted by the rescheduling of the drilling program due to the
        delay in receiving EIA approvals.
--  Indonesia
    --  East Jabung PSC Onshore Sumatra (Pan Orient operator and 100%
        ownership)
        --  As disclosed on May 28th, Pan Orient has received a number of
            proposals from potential farminees with regard to obtain of an
            up to 50% working interest in East Jabung PSC. The Company has
            accepted a non-binding proposal and is currently facilitating
            legal and financial due diligence on an exclusive basis while
            working towards binding farm-in and joint operating agreements.
            These agreements, if concluded successfully, are anticipated to
            be completed in September.
    --  Batu Gajah PSC Onshore Sumatra (Pan Orient operator and 77%
        ownership)
        --  The Company is currently in negotiations on a non-exclusive
            basis regarding the potential farm-out of an up to 40% working
            interest in the Batu Gajah PSC.
        --  In the past three weeks approximately 120 square kilometers of
            3D seismic data covering a large portion of the Akatara-Selong
            oil and gas discovery area made by another operator directly
            adjacent to our acreage at the Batu Gajah PSC has been purchased
            after being only recently made available by the Indonesian
            Government technical data administrator. The preliminary results
            of the interpretation of this high quality 3D seismic data
            continues to indicate the Company's view that the Selong oil
            discovery extends into Pan Orient's adjacent Batu Gajah PSC
            acreage. On the basis of this newly available seismic data, the
            Company has selected three drilling locations for which Forestry
            Ministry approval will be sought. It is estimated this approval
            process will take approximately four months and could be
            followed by drilling in mid-2015.
    --  Citarum PSC Onshore Java (Pan Orient operator and 97% ownership)
        --  Pan Orient continues to operate a data room for potential farmin
            parties and is seeking a 50% partner. This process continues to
            proceed.
--  Canada - Sawn Lake (operated by Andora, in which Pan Orient has a 71.8%
    ownership interest)
    --  Andora has a 50% working interest in the Sawn Lake SAGD
        demonstration project, and is the operator. The first step towards
        determining the commercial viability of the SAGD recovery process at
        Sawn Lake is for the demonstration project to provide an indication
        of the productivity of the reservoir and the amount of steam
        injection required to produce the bitumen, which are key components
        in assessing the potential for SAGD development at Sawn Lake.
    --  For Phase 1 of the SAGD demonstration project, one SAGD well pair
        was drilled in the fourth quarter of 2013 to a depth of 650 meters
        and has a horizontal length of 780 meters. Construction of the SAGD
        facility for steam generation, water handling and oil treating was
        completed in 2014.
    --  Steam injection at the Sawn Lake SAGD demonstration project
        commenced on May 21, 2014. Steam has been injected into both the
        SAGD injector well and the SAGD production well for approximately
        three months. These wells are being monitored to determine the
        timing for recompleting the SAGD production well for production. It
        is expected that bitumen production will commence in early September
        2014.

(1) Funds flow from operations (cash flow from operating activities prior to
    changes in non-cash working capital, reclamation costs and excluding the
    recovery of prior year income taxes) is used by management to analyze
    operating performance and leverage. Funds flow as presented does not
    have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore it may
    not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures of other
    entities. Funds flow is not intended to represent operating cash flow or
    operating profits for the period nor should it be viewed as an
    alternative to cash flow from operating activities, net earnings or
    other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with
    IFRS.
(2) Cost of capital expenditures, excluding decommissioning provision and
    the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates.
(3) Joint venture partners in Andora's Sawn Lake SAGD demonstration project
    repurchased the 3% gross overriding royalty on a portion of the non-
    owned working interests in 36.5 sections for $2.7 million.
(4) General & administrative expenses, excluding non-cash accretion on
    decommissioning provision and stock-based payments.
(5) Exploration expense relates to exploration costs associated with the
    Citarum and South CPP PSCs that are no longer being capitalized.
(6) Tables may not add due to rounding.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
