Providence Resources P.l.c.: Operational Update - Standard Exploration Licence 1/11 Completion of Barryroe Site Survey

Dublin and London - September 16, 2019 - Providence Resources P.l.c. (PVR LN, PRP ID), the Irish based Energy Company ('Providence' or the 'Company'), today provides an operational update in relation to Standard Exploration Licence ('SEL') 1/11 which contains the Barryroe oil accumulation (the 'Barryroe Project'). SEL 1/11 is operated by EXOLA DAC ('EXOLA' or the 'Operator', 40%), a wholly-owned Providence subsidiary, on behalf of its partners, APEC Energy Enterprises Limited ('APEC') and Lansdowne Celtic Sea Limited ('Lansdowne', 10%), collectively the 'Barryroe Partners'. The area lies in c. 100 metre water depth in the North Celtic Sea Basin and is located c. 50 km off the south coast of Ireland.

The Barryroe Partners confirm the completion of the Barryroe site survey, which comprised a seabed debris clearance, environmental baseline and habitat assessment survey over proposed well locations A & B in the Barryroe field within SEL 1/11. The site survey over proposed well locations C & D in the Barryroe field can now be carried out as part of a separate campaign. The site survey was completed ahead of schedule and under budget due to excellent vessel performance and overall favourable weather conditions. Gardline's M/V Kommandor survey vessel has now left the Barryroe field area.
