Antrim Energy Provides Update on FEL 1/13 Republic of Ireland

Antrim Energy Provides Update on FEL 1/13 Republic of Ireland

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 22, 2015) -


Antrim Energy Inc. ("Antrim" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:AEN)(AIM:AEY), an international oil and gas
exploration company, today announces that its subsidiary Antrim Exploration (Ireland) Limited has received
notice from Kosmos Energy Ireland ("Kosmos") that Kosmos intends to withdraw from Frontier Exploration Licence
("FEL") 1/13 (currently Kosmos: 75%, Antrim: 25%) in the Porcupine Basin offshore Ireland's west coast. Kosmos
had previously acquired 75% interest and operatorship in FEL 1/13 in 2013 in exchange for carrying the full
costs of the 3D seismic programme and re-imbursement to Antrim of a portion of the past exploration costs
incurred on the blocks.

The initial three year term of the FEL expires in early July 2016 and has to date involved the acquisition of
3D seismic over the FEL area, followed by seismic processing, interpretation and geological studies. Antrim
will work with Kosmos to review in greater detail the work completed by the operator as well as with the
Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources ("DCENR") to determine how best to move FEL 1/13
forward. Results from the acquired 3D seismic reinforced Antrim's interpretation based on 2-D seismic and
strongly indicated the presence of Lower Cretaceous slope fan and channel deposits similar in geometry and
seismic character to many of the recent Cretaceous oil discoveries offshore West Africa.

Anthony Potter, Antrim's CEO commented "While we are disappointed with Kosmos decision not to continue, their
decision to exit the Porcupine Basin should be considered in the broader context of their portfolio and
markets. Several exciting prospects and leads have previously been identified on FEL 1/13 and despite volatile
commodity markets and investment sentiment moving away from exploration we remain optimistic that FEL 1/13
would be an attractive addition to the right exploration portfolio."

"Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the
TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release."
