Chairman and CEO, Andrew G. Inglis, said: “Covid-19 has created unprecedented disruption across the world, which has resulted in historically low and volatile prices. During this challenging period, the health and safety of our employees and contractors continues to be our primary concern, while ensuring the strength of our balance sheet is maintained.

Kosmos' operations performed well during the first quarter with production across our three hubs in line or at the top end of expectations. Our differentiated portfolio of low-cost, low decline conventional assets is well positioned to withstand the lower price environment we are in today.

In response to the volatile market conditions, we have taken decisive actions to protect the business in 2020 and position it for increased activity in 2021. These measures include materially reducing costs and restructuring our hedging portfolio. We completed our RBL re-determination in difficult market conditions in April and have no near-term debt maturities.

We look forward to building a self-funded gas business in Mauritania and Senegal and progressing our high-quality portfolio of ILX and basin-opening exploration prospects for 2021.”
