Gulf Keystone Petroleum Ltd. (LSE: GKP) 
("Gulf Keystone", "GKP", "the Group" or "the Company") 
 
Update on Shaikan Field local sales 
 
Gross average sales in September to date of c.28,800 bopd 
At current volumes and prices, more than covering current monthly costs of USD6 million 
 
 
Gulf Keystone, a leading independent operator and producer in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq ("Kurdistan"), is today 
providing an update on Shaikan Field local sales. 
 
Since closure of the export pipeline and subsequent commencement of local sales on 19 July 2023, gross average monthly 
local sales of Shaikan crude have steadily increased: c.4,900 bopd in July, c.17,200 bopd in August and c.28,800 bopd 
between 1-24 September. Realised prices have continued to average around USD30/bbl, in line with local market pricing. 
 
Following recent agreements with buyers, GKP has ceased trucking operations and is injecting all crude sales into the 
pipeline for transportation to a local refinery in Kurdistan. The Company is receiving advance payments into its UK 
bank account for its net entitlement of 36% of gross sales revenue. 
 
Current local sales volumes and realised prices enable GKP to more than cover its estimated monthly costs of around USD6 
million in H2 2023, while strengthening its financial position. The Company remains focused on preserving liquidity and 
continues to explore opportunities for further cost reductions. 
 
Gross average sales are currently c.33,000 bopd and GKP is striving to increase sales volumes while prudently managing 
the start-up of wells that have been shut-in for several months and avoid traces of water. However, the continuity of 
local sales remains uncertain.
