Comments from C. Ashley Heppenstall, President and CEO

2012 was yet another successful year for our Company. We have exceeded our production forecasts once again and this, coupled with our low operating costs and cash taxes, has resulted in a record operating cash flow of more than MUSD 830 for the year.

Lundin Petroleum's success has been due to our ability to increase our resource base. Our 2P recoverable reserves at the end of 2012 were 201.5 million barrels of oil equivalent. Whilst last year's reserve replacement ratio was lower than in previous years, I think everyone would agree that this will change when the contingent resources from the Johan Sverdrup field in Norway are booked as reserves. There is little doubt that the Johan Sverdrup field is commercial but reserves will not be booked until the signing of a unitisation agreement and the submission of the field development plan both scheduled for the end of 2014.

In 2013 we expect our net production to average between 33,000 boepd and 38,000 boepd for the year and to exit the year at in excess of 40,000 boepd when the Brynhild field reaches plateau production.

We are very excited about our 2013 exploration programme which involves the drilling of 18 exploration wells in Norway, South East Asia, France and the Netherlands. The budget of over USD 460 million will be the largest in the Company's history and will be predominantly focused on Norway which will account for about 75 percent of the expenditure.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company?

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
