Management Letter

"The second quarter of the year was the first period fully incorporating the 51.74% operating interest in Frade in the Company's results. The field is now the largest asset operated by PetroRio, and buoys PetroRio to the position of 5 th largest oil and gas operator in Brazil and the largest independent company in the industry. As Frade's new operators, we've had success in several short-term initiatives to manage the Field's natural decline.

Regarding cost reductions, talks with suppliers have progressed to capture the synergies between Polvo and Frade through the second quarter. We estimate there will be further positive impacts from these reductions in the third quarter, which will be fully realized in 4Q19.

This quarter also saw some significant operational and financial achievements, such as record sales volumes, production, revenues, EBITDA and lifting cost, which cemented the success of the asset's acquisition and integration. These achievements were accomplished through the diligent effort of our operational and procurement teams. Our free cash flow in the quarter also illustrates this excellent performance, as evidenced by our rapid deleveraging compared to the previous quarter.

Looking forward, we are focused on extracting maximum potential of our two operated fields and on searching for new acquisitions, where we hope to create even more value for our shareholders."
