Marshall Abbott, CEO of Arrow commented, “The second quarter of 2020 saw the continuation of significant challenges for the international oil & gas industry, following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first quarter. Arrow continued to face many of these same challenges in the second quarter, including lower crude oil prices as a result of reduced global oil demand.”

Mr. Abbott continued, “As discussed in our first quarter results, at our LLA-23 block production rates over the past several months have been negatively impacted by lower oil prices, in addition to well-specific issues. As a result of these and other factors, following the end of the second quarter we made the difficult decision to temporarily shut-in production on the LLA-23 block. As announced on August 24th, 2020, we have entered into an agreement to sell the LLA-23 block to COG Energy Ltd., which marks a significant step forward in our strategic alternatives process.”

Mr. Abbott further commented, “Production from the Tapir Block has also been shut-in, and management continues to take the steps necessary to re-start production from that asset. Production at Ombu (Arrow holds 10%) remains shut-in pending further recovery of oil prices.”

About ARROW Exploration

Arrow Exploration Corp. (operating in Colombia via a branch of its 100% owned subsidiary Carrao Energy S.A.) is a publicly-traded company with a portfolio of premier Colombian oil assets that are under-exploited, under-explored and offer high potential growth. The Company’s business plan is to expand oil production from some of Colombia’s most active basins, including the Llanos, Middle Magdalena Valley (MMV) and Putumayo Basin. The asset base is predominantly operated with high working interests, and the Brent-linked light oil pricing exposure combines with low royalties to yield attractive potential operating margins. Arrow’s 50% interest in the Tapir Block is contingent on the assignment by Ecopetrol SA of such interest to Arrow. Arrow’s seasoned team is led by a hands-on executive team supported by an experienced board. Arrow is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “AXL”.
