3P Reserves PV10 Increased to US$1.5 billion (A$1.8 billion)

Sundance Energy Australia Limited (ASX: SEA, Sundance) is pleased to announce a material uplift in its Reserve base, net of landowner royalties, following an independent evaluation as at 1 January 2015 by Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc., (NSAI); a worldwide leader in independent oil and gas Reserve evaluations.
The results below are compared to the Company's reserves as at 1 January 2014(1).
• Proved PV10 increased to $531.7 million (A$651.8 million), up $272.9 million or
105%, and Proved Reserves increased to 26.0 mmboe, up 11.3 mmboe or 77%;
• The PV10 of 2P Reserves increased to $765.1 million (A$937.9 million), up $395.7 million or 107%, and 2P Reserves increased to 54.1 mmboe, up 28.7 mmboe or
113%;
• The PV10 of 3P Reserves increased to $1.5 billion (A$1.8 billion), up $864.2 million or 139%, and 3P Reserves increased to 147.7 mmboe, up 79.2 mmboe or
116%.

Key Points

• The primary drivers of the Reserves increase were the addition of approximately
12,000 net mineral acres in the Eagle Ford, improved well results compared to type curves in both McMullen and Dimmit Counties, and development of the Company's Eagle Ford acreage;
• The Company's drilling inventory includes approximately 372 gross (291 net) 3P Eagle Ford locations. Approximately 78 net Eagle Ford locations were not booked as 3P Reserves in accordance with US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") guidelines;
• Direct cash flow from the Company's reserve base (unaudited) was approximately
$138.4 million during 2014.

ASX Code: SEA

(1) Excludes 6.1 mmboe of 1P, 3.1 mmboe of probable and 15.1 mmboe of possible reserves that were primarily attributable to acreage sold during 2014.

Reserve Estimates

The following tables provide summaries of the Company's Reserve estimates as calculated by Netherland, Sewell
& Associates, Inc. as at 1 January 2015 in accordance with SEC guidelines. Although current market prices have fallen significantly, under SEC guidelines, the commodity prices used in the December 31, 2014 and December
31, 2013 reserve estimates were based on the 12-month unweighted arithmetic average of the first day of the
month prices for the period January 1, 2014 through December 1, 2014, and for the period January 1, 2013 through December 1, 2013, respectively, adjusted by lease for transportation fees and regional price differentials. For crude oil volumes, the average West Texas Intermediate posted price of $91.48 per barrel used to calculate PV-10 at December 31, 2014 was down $1.94 per barrel from the average price of $93.42 per barrel used to calculate PV-10 at December 31, 2013. For natural gas volumes, the average Henry Hub spot price of $4.35 per million British thermal units ("MMBTU") used to calculate PV-10 at December 31, 2014 was up $0.68 per MMBTU from the average price of $3.67 per MMBTU used to calculate PV-10 at December 31, 2013. All prices were held constant throughout the estimated economic life of the properties.
