                        Xcite Energy Limited
                ("Xcite Energy" or the "Company")

    Results for the 3 and 9 Month Periods Ended 30 September 2012

Xcite Energy announces its results for the 3 and 9 month periods ended
30 September 2012.

Operational Highlights

- Bentley pre-production well test successfully and safely
  concluded in September 2012, with initial well test results
  exceeding management expectations:

   - Water breakthrough better than expected (i.e. less water
     produced)

   - Extensive data gathered for reservoir model calibration and
     production facilities design, enabling optimisation of field
     development plan

   - Significantly improved understanding of oil, gas and water
     movement behaviour

   - Produced approximately 149,000 barrels of Bentley crude,
     which was combined with approximately 58,000 barrels of diluent.

- 9/3b-7 and 7Z wells suspended for future use as production wells
  during Phase 1B and the Rowan Norway demobilised from the field,
  with all associated equipment off hire.


Financial Highlights

- Revenue generated of GBP13.3 million from the sale of the blended
  crude oil and diluent.

- Net loss in the three month period of GBP0.57 million. Further
  increase in net assets through continued investment in the Bentley
  field development programme.

- Cash of GBP54.6 million as at 30 September 2012, following net new
  equity capital and debt financing of GBP21.2 million in the three
  month period.Included in cash balances are amounts held in escrow
  of GBP44.0 million relating to the Bentley Phase 1A work programme,
  a significant amount of which is expected to be returned to the
  Company in due course.

- Issue of an additional US$10 million of unsecured 14% loan notes
  to West Face Capital Inc. in the three month period, giving a total
  of US$60 million in the nine month period.

- Signing of a US$155 million reserves based lending facility inJune with a
leading syndicate of lending institutions to provide a
  substantial part of the Phase 1B work programme funding requirement.


Post Period Event

UK Department of Energy and Climate Change has offered the Company
licenses over Blocks 9/4 (part), 9/8b and 9/9f (split) as applied for
in the UK 27th Offshore Licensing Round. These licences could add
significant additional value to a Bentley hub development concept.


Significant Work Ahead

The Phase 1A programme was a highly successful, extensive and thorough
pre-production well test, which has provided substantial quantities of
valuable data.The Company's immediate priority is to continue to
analyse this information in order to update the reservoir model and
production profiles, which, together with the inclusion of recently
acquired new 3D seismic data over the Bentley field and its surrounding
prospects (including 27th Round licences), will form part of the
updated reserves report (a Competent Person's Report) and the RBL banks
review process, expected early in 2013.

This data and analysis thereof will also be utilised in a data room in
due course for the intended farm-out discussions, with the intention of
commencing the initial engagement process by the end of the year.

2013 is therefore expected to be an important year for Xcite Energy,
with an updated Competent Persons Report, discussions with potential
farm-in partners, the re-submission of the updated Field Development
Plan to DECC and the initiation of the Phase 1B work programme, the
planning for which is well underway. The Company looks forward to
updating investors on these important events.

The following tables summarise the Group's financial performance in the
3 and 9 months ended 30 September 2012 and the comparatives for the 3
and 9 months ended 30 September 2011.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
