Second Quarter 2019 Results Will Be Released After Market on Thursday, August 1, 2019, Followed by a Conference Call on Friday, August 2, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. EDT

TORONTO, July 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Frontera Energy Corporation (TSX: FEC) ("Frontera" or the "Company"), today announced that repairs have been completed on the NorPeruano pipeline in Peru and it has now resumed normal operations, allowing the Company to restart production from Block 192. Current production is 2,910 bbl/d and is expected to continue to ramp back up to over 9,000 bbl/d. It is now anticipated that the contract relating to Block 192 will be extended to at least February 2020.

On June 18, 2019, the Company was notified by Petroperú S.A. ("Petroperú"), the operator of the NorPeruano pipeline, of a force majeure event affecting a portion of the pipeline as a result of an attack at Kilometer 237 near pump station 5 of the North Branch Pipeline located in the Manseriche district. The pipeline was repaired, but as part of an ongoing community dispute local residents were not permitting Petroperú to conduct activities necessary to resume pumping oil through the pipeline. Effective July 1, 2019, Frontera started to shut down production from Block 192, located over 200 kilometers from the site of the incident, while the authorities worked to resolve the dispute and gain access to the pipeline.
