Press Release

CALGARY, ALBERTA – March 20, 2024 – Pieridae Energy Limited (“Pieridae” or the “Company”) (TSX: PEA) announces the release of its fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial and operating results and year-end reserves. Pieridae generated Net Operating Income (“NOI”)  of $131 million and produced 32,772 boe/d (86% natural gas) during 2023. The Company posted Q4 NOI of $25 million and production of 33,340 boe/d, following the completion of the Waterton turnaround project in late October, while 2023 exit production was approximately 37,500 boe/d.

In addition, the Company filed its Annual Information Form (“AIF”) for the year ended December 31, 2023
containing Pieridae’s 2023 independent oil and natural reserves evaluation as required under National Instrument 51-101 Standards of Disclosure of Oil and Gas Activities (“NI 51-101”). Pieridae’s 2023 NI 51-101 Proved Developed Producing (“PDP”) PV10  value is $614 million and Total Proved plus Probable (“TPP”) PV10 value is $1,372 million.

The Company’s AIF, management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) and audited consolidated financial statements and notes for the year ended December 31, 2023 are available at www.pieridaeenergy.com and on SEDAR at www.sedarplus.ca.

“During 2023 we successfully refinanced and reduced our long-term debt, safely completed crucial facility maintenance, drilled two Foothills development wells, reduced our G&A costs and generated strong NOI,” said Pieridae’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Darcy Reding. “Pieridae’s results improved in the fourth quarter, despite falling natural gas prices and unavoidable maintenance downtime. We safely brought the Waterton facility and production back online at the end of October and recovered our production capability, exiting the year at approximately 37,500 boe/d. Our commodity hedging program continues to support the business, generating over $60 million in gains during 2023 and is expected to continue to mitigate the cashflow impact of low gas prices in 2024, should they persist.”
