A chemicaltreatment campaign on the wells on the West Don field has alsosuccessfully been completed.- Good progress continues to be made on the work programme required toenable start-up of the electrical submersible pump ("ESP") on theCauseway field. It is anticipated that the facilities being installedon the host platform for the field will be operational in the fourthquarter of the year, significantly boosting production from the field.- Production from the Athena field was partially reduced during thesecond quarter as one of the four producing wells, the "P2" well, wastemporarily shut-in. A repair was successfully completed as planned inearly July 2013 and the well was brought back online.The key risks to production in H2 2013 relate to completion of works oncertain of the Company's non-operated assets and the results of anongoing evaluation on one of the Athena wells.- The planned start-up of the ESP on the Causeway field in Q4 2013 issubject to TAQA delivering an on time turnaround of six weeks on theNorth Cormorant platform and thereafter executing on the plan todeliver power to the Causeway well ESP package.- The Shell operated Cook field has had to be shut-in in the last fewdays to allow inspection of the infield flowline connecting the fieldto the Anasuria floating production, storage and offloading vessel. TheOperator is planning for the work to be completed in September 2013 toallow restart of production.- Production from one well on the Athena Field, the "P4" well whichcontributes under 400 boepd (net) was shut-in on 12 August 2013.Diagnostic testing, including investigation of the ESP installed in thewell, is underway.Substantial delay to completion of the above works, including any rigor vessel work required as an outcome of the Athena P4 diagnostictesting, has the potential to reduce full year production below theguidance range.Greater Stella Area Development- Drilling on the Stella field commenced in June 2013. The firstdevelopment well is progressing as planned, with drilling currentlyongoing in the horizontal reservoir section of the well.- Excellent progress is being made on the subsea infrastructureinstallation work programme - the 60km 10-inch gas export pipeline andmain subsea structures have been installed and infield flowlinetrenching has been completed.- Execution of the marine system works currently being conducted onthe"FPF-1" floating production unit, in Gdansk, Poland is progressingwell.Corporate- The acquisition of Valiant was completed on April 19, 2013 and allthe main integration milestones have now been completed.- All future UK exploration and appraisal well commitments transferredas a result of the Valiant acquisition have been farmed out withmaterial expenditure carries - removing approximately $75 million ofnet exploration expenditure, while creating upside exposure to futurewells at an anticipated net cost of less than $10 million. Monetisationof the UK exploration portfolio has exceeded expectations in terms oflevels of expenditure carry and speed of execution.- Drilling operations on the Norvarg well were successfully completedin August 2013. The reserves of the field and potential futuredevelopment options are currently being evaluated.- A re-focused strategy has been established for the Norwegianbusiness, targeting lower risk geology / geography, with new leadershipprovided by Lars Thorrud, previously Vice President BusinessDevelopment in Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA.Iain McKendrick, Chief Executive Officer, commented:"In the first half ofthe year we have both doubled production andoperating cashflow and importantly diversified our producing asset baseto 11 fields. The Greater Stella Area development is moving forwardrapidly and with the integration of the Valiant acquisition nowcompleted, including restructuring of the UK exploration portfolio, welook forward to an active second half of the year."Company WebsiteIthaca has today launched a re-developed Company website,www.ithacaenergy.com, with further background information on all itsassets and on-going activities. - ENDS -Enquiries:Ithaca Energy:Iain imckendrick@ithacaenergy.com +44 (0)1224 650 261McKendrick,CEOGraham gforbes@ithacaenergy.com +44 (0)1224 652 151Forbes,CFOFTI Consulting:Billy billy.clegg@fticonsulting.com +44 (0)207 269 7157CleggEdward edward.westropp@fticonsulting.com +44 (0)207 269 7230WestroppGeorgia georgia.mann@fticonsulting.com +44 (0)207 269 7212MannCenkos Securities plc:Jon jfitzpatrick@cenkos.com +44 (0)207 397 8900FitzpatrickNeil nmcdonald@cenkos.com +44 (0)131 220 6939McDonaldRBC Capital Markets:Tim Chapman tim.chapman@rbccm.com +44 (0)207 653 4641Matthew Coakes matthew.coakes@rbccm.com +44 (0)207 653 4871NotesIn accordance with AIM Guidelines, John Horsburgh, BSc (Hons)Geophysics (Edinburgh), MSc Petroleum Geology (Aberdeen) and SubsurfaceManager at Ithaca is the qualified person that has reviewed thetechnical information contained in this press release. Mr Horsburghhas over 15 years operating experience in the upstream oil and gasindustry.References herein to "boe" are derived by converting gas to oil in theratio of six thousand cubic feet ("Mcf") of gas to one barrel ("bbl")of oil. Boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boeconversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy conversionmethod primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent avalue equivalency at the wellhead.This press release contains non-International Financial ReportingStandards ("IFRS") industry benchmarks and terms, such as"netbacks","cashflow from operations" and "cashflow from ongoingoperations".Netbacks are calculated on a per unit basis as oil, gas and natural gasliquids revenues less royalties and transportation and operating costs.Cashflow from operations and cashflow from ongoing operations aredetermined by adding back changes in non-cash operating working capitalto cash from operating activities. The Company considers cashflow fromoperations to be a key measure as it demonstrates the Company'sunderlying ability to generate the cash necessary to fund operationsand support activities related to its major assets. The non-IFRSfinancial measures do not have any standardised meaning and thereforeare unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by othercompanies. The Company uses the foregoing measures to help evaluate itsperformance. As an indicator of the Company's performance, cashflowfrom operations should not be considered as an alternative to, or moremeaningful than, net cash from operating activities as determined inaccordance with IFRS.Further details on the above are provided in the unaudited interimconsolidated financial statements of Ithaca for the quarter ended June30, 2013, which have been filed with the securities regulatoryauthorities in Canada.

("Ithaca" or the "Company") is a North Sea oil and gas operator focused on the delivery of lower risk growth through the appraisal and development of UK undeveloped discoveries, the exploitation of its existing UK producing asset portfolio and a Norwegian exploration and appraisal business centred on the generation of discoveries capable of monetisation prior to development. The Company has a solid and diversified UK producing asset base generating significant free cashflow from mainly oil production. Ithaca's goal is to generate sustainable long term shareholder value by building a highly profitable 25kboe/d North Sea oil and gas company. Execution of the Company's strategy is focused on the following core activities: - Maximising cashflow and production from the existing asset base. - Delivery of lower risk development led growth through the appraisal of undeveloped discoveries. - Delivering first hydrocarbons from the Ithaca operated Greater Stella Area development. - Monetising proven Norwegian asset reserves derived from exploration and appraisal drilling prior to the development phase. - Continuing to grow and diversify the cashflow base by securing new producing, development and appraisal assets through targeted acquisitions and licence round participation. - Maintaining financial strength and a clean balance sheet, supported by lower cost debt leverage. PRODUCTION & OPERATIONS UPDATE Taking into account production from the Valiant assets on a pro-forma basis from the start ofSolid H1-2013 2013, total average net export production in H1production 2013 was approximately 14,300 boepd,performance approximately 95% oil. This is in line with the Company's pro-forma annual guidance range of 14,000 to 16,000 boepd. Total average net export production in Q2 2013, taking into account the Valiant acquisition from the transaction completion date of April 19, 2013, was 12,100 boepd, approximately 95% oil (Q2 2012: 3,964 boepd), resulting in H1 2013 production of 9,138 boepd, approximately 93% oil (H1 2012: 4,132 boepd). Production during the quarter was derived from the operated Athena, Causeway Area (Causeway and Fionn), Beatrice, Jacky and Anglia fields and the non-operated Dons (Don Southwest and West Don), Cook, Broom and Topaz fields. The material increase in production delivered in Q2 2013 compared to the same quarter in 2012 was primarily attributable to the contribution of the Valiant assets, in addition to the positiveimpact of the Athena field start-up (first oil May 2012) and the acquisition of an additional 12.885% interest in the Cook field from Noble Energy Capital Limited, the "Cook Acquisition" (transaction completed February 2013). OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES The fields produced strongly during the quarter, although, as anticipated, production was impacted by planned maintenance shutdowns on a number of assets, including the Beatrice Area infrastructure and Anglia, together with the non-operated Topaz field. Scheduled shutdownsMain on-going were also incurred on the Shell-operatedoperational work Anasuria Floating Production, Storage andprogrammes focused on Offloading vessel ("FPSO"), which serves as theproduction host facility for the Cook field, to enable theenhancement re-start of production from another field thatactivities uses the vessel. Athena During the quarter the Ithaca operated Athena field completed its first full year of operations. Gross daily production was reduced towards the end of the quarter as one of the four producing wells, the "P2" well, was temporarily shut-in awaiting a repair to the electrical cable serving that particular well. The necessary repair was completed in early July 2013 and the well was brought back online. During the quarter the Athena field commenced the production of water with oil. This wassignificantly later than originally anticipated prior to start-up of production from the field. The future evolution of the water production profile will now provide important information for forecasting the ultimate field production profile and the scope for future potential upside investment opportunities. The Athena field accounts for less than 15% of the Company's 2013 production following completion of the Valiant acquisition. Production from one well on the Athena Field, the "P4" well which contributes under 400 boepd (net) was shut-in on 12 August 2013. Diagnostic testing, including investigation of the ESP installed in the well, is underway. Causeway Area Drilling activities on the Causeway water injection well and the Fionn production well were completed in Q1 2013. Since taking control of the assets in Q2 2013, the Company has completed the subsea tie-in works required to put the Fionn well into production and is working closely with Taqa, the operator of the Causeway Area host infrastructure, to facilitate start-up of the installed electrical submersible pumps ("ESPs") and (Causeway) water injection as soon as practicable. It is anticipated that the facilities required to start-up the ESPs on the Causeway field will be operational in the fourth quarter of the year. Flow teststhat have been performed on the Fionn well since completion of the subsea tie-in works have confirmed that the field has the potential to flow at considerably better rates if the well is sidetracked to a more optimal location (the well is a re-completed appraisal well). The Company has exercised a rig option originally held by Valiant to complete the sidetrack of the Fionn well. It is anticipated that drilling operations will commence in the fourth quarter of 2013. The well will be sidetracked to a location updip of the existing well to optimise access to the prime reservoir formation and to target potential upside reserves in a secondary reservoir. Prior to the commencement of drilling operations, the well will be produced on free flow (awaiting the start-up of the ESPs). Beatrice Area During the quarter a planned maintenance shutdown was completed on the Beatrice Area infrastructure, which comprises the Beatrice and Jacky offshore platforms and the Nigg oil terminal. The shutdown was focused on both the completion of asset integrity workscopes and the implementation of measures designed to improve the operating efficiency of the facilities. Dons A number of production enhancement activities have been completed on the EnQuest operated Dons fields since the end of Q1 2013. An additional production well on the Don Southwest field was drilled and brought online in late Q2 2013. Drilling of a water injection well in the same area of the field, to support production and reserves recovery from that area of the field, is nearing completion. A chemical treatment campaign on a number of the wells on the West Don field was successfully completed in July 2013, using the facilities on the Northern Producer, in order to increase production. Cook During the quarter, the Cook field performed strongly. In the last few days the field has had to be shut-in to allow inspection of the infield flowline connecting the field to the Anasuria FPSO. The Operator is planning for the work to be completed in September 2013 to allow restart of production. PRODUCTION OUTLOOK Based on pro-forma production in H1 2013 and a balanced view of the opportunities and challenges for H2 2013, the Company anticipates that full year production will be at the lower end of the pro-forma annual guidance range of 14,000 to 16,000 boepd. Production is expected to benefit from recent operational activities and planned work programmes, notably on the Dons and the Causeway fields. The key risks relate to the timely completion of the works on the Causeway and Cook fields and the results of the on-going evaluation on the Athena P4 well. Substantial delay to completion of the works on these fields, including any rig or vessel work required as an outcome of the Athena P4 diagnostic testing, has the potential to reduce full year production below the guidance range. GREATER STELLA AREA DEVELOPMENT UPDATE Strong progress has continued to be made with development of the Greater Stella Area ("GSA"),Development drilling with commencement of both the Stella developmentand subsea drilling campaign and the initial subseainfrastructure infrastructure installation programme markinginstallation two major project execution milestones.programmes underway Drilling Programme The high-spec ENSCO 100 heavy duty jack-up drilling rig that is being used for the GSA development drilling campaign commenced operations on the Stella field in June 2013. Management of the drilling and completion operations is being performed by Advanced Drilling Technology International ("ADTI")under"turnkey" contract arrangements. The initial campaign involves the drilling and completion of four production wells on the Stella field prior to start-up. Three horizontal wells are to be drilled into the oil rim of the field, along with one highly deviated gas-condensate well on the crest of the structure. Each well is anticipated to take approximately 80-90 days to drill, complete and clean-up test. Drilling operations on the first well are currently on-going in the horizontal reservoir section. Subsea Infrastructure Works Execution of the main subsea infrastructure manufacturing and installation programme, which is being executed by Technip UK Limited under the terms of an integrated Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Construction contract, continued to move forward as planned in Q2 2013. The initial offshore installation works commenced in June 2013, with trenching operations being completed in preparation for installation of the infield flowlines. The infield flowlines, which will connect the drill centres to the FPF-1, are scheduled to beinstalled in Q3 2013. Over a two week period in July 2013, the Apache II pipelay vessel completed the installation of the 60km 10-inch gas export pipeline that will connect the FPF-1 with the BP operated Central Area Transmission System, through which the gas will be transported to shore for processing at the Teeside Gas and Liquids Processing ("TGLP") terminal. The existing facilities at the TGLP terminal will be used to separate the natural gas, which will be sold to the UK spot market on a daily basis, and the associated propane, butane and condensate from within the gas, withsuch natural gas liquids being sold by TGLP at prevailing market prices. Installation of the main subsea structures that will be used for the production and export of hydrocarbons to and from the FPF-1 was also completed in July, using the Skandi Arctic construction and diving support vessel. FPF-1 Modification Works Work on the FPF-1 modifications and upgrade programme, which is being managed by Petrofac under the terms of a lump sum incentivised contract, has continued to be focused on execution of the marine system works during the quarter. The FPF-1 was transferred on to the dry dock barge at the Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland, in April 2013. The key elements of the dry dock works being completed on the vessel are inspection, repair and coating of the hull tanks and the installation of additional buoyancy. The hull tank refurbishment operations are nearing completion. Construction and installation of the steelwork blocks that will form the additional sponsons that are being added to the pontoons of the FPF-1 for enhanced buoyancy is advancing and fabrication of the additional buoyancy "blisters" that are being added to the legs of the vessel has commenced. DRILLING PROGRAMME NORVARG APPRAISAL WELL - NORWAYDrilling operations Drilling of the TOTAL E&P Norge operated Norvargon Norvarg appraisal appraisal well in the Norwegian sector of thewell completed - Barents North Sea was completed in August 2013.reserves and Two formation tests were carried out in thedevelopment options upper and lower parts of the Kobbe Formation,evaluation to with the well flowing at a maximum grosscommence production rate of approximately 6.2 million standard cubic of feet per day on a 52/64-inch choke. An extensive data acquisition programme was completed, including wire line logging, coring and fluid sampling, and work will now be undertaken by the Operator to evaluate the estimated recoverable hydrocarbons on the structure. Downhole pressure gauges have been installed in the well to recover long term pressure build-up data that will be used to evaluate the extent of the reservoir. HANDCROSS The Company is in the process of preparing for the drilling of the operated exploration well on the Handcross prospect located in the West of Shetlands basin. The Stena Carron drillship will be used for the drilling operations and it is anticipated that it will be on location at the end of 2013. CORPORATE ACTIVITIES Valiant Petroleum plc Acquisition & IntegrationEfficient execution On April 19, 2013 the Company completed theof Valiant acquisition of Valiant. Since this time, theacquisition Company has efficiently executed its integrationintegration plan - plan to maximise the value of the acquisition.maximisingshareholder value - All Valiant's UK assets have been integrated into Ithaca's existing organisation and Valiant's UK office has been closed - this is expected to yield approximately $20 million per annum of overhead savings. - All future UK exploration and appraisal well commitments transferred as a result of the Valiant acquisition have been farmed out with material expenditure carries being paid by the companies farming in to the licences - removing approximately $75 million of net UK exploration expenditure, while creating upside exposure to future wells at an anticipated net cost of under $10 million. - A re-focused strategy has been established for the Norwegian business, targeting lower risk geology / geography, with new leadership. - Mr Lars Thorrud, previously Vice President Business Development in Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA (Norway), will be taking up the position of General Manager of the Company's Norwegian subsidiary from September 1, 2013. Mr Thorrud, a geologist by background, has been working in the North Sea oil and gas industry for over 24 years in various senior technical and commercial management positions. He brings a wealth of experience of building and monetising Norwegian exploration and appraisal portfolios. UK EXPLORATION FARM-OUTS Four significant farm-out transactions have beenexecuted to effectively restructure and de-risk the UK exploration and appraisal portfolio acquired from Valiant. In addition to the main farm-out transactions listed below, the Company has also withdrawn from a number of licences in the portfolio transferred from Valiant. - Handcross - P1631 & P1832 (Blocks 204/14c, 204 /18b & 204/19c): farm-outs have been executed with RWE Dea UK SNS Limited and a subsidiary of Edison International SpA reducing Ithaca's paying interest in the operated West of Shetland exploration well to be drilled in late 2013 from 100% to 6%, while retaining a 45% working interest. - Beverley - P1792 (Blocks 21/30f, 22/26c): farm-out executed with Shell UK Limited, resulting in Ithaca reducing its 40% interest in the non-operated Central North Sea exploration well to 20%, in return for a partial carry of the costs of a well on the Beverly prospect. - Isabella - P1820 (Blocks 30/6b, 30/11a & 30/ 12d): farm-out executed with Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited, resulting in Ithaca reducing its 50% interest in the non-operated Central North Sea exploration well to 20%, in return for a partial carry of the costs of a well on the Isabella prospect. With the completion of the above farm-outs, the Company has exceeded its expectations in respect of the restructuring of the UK exploration andappraisal programmes. The Company will continue to farm-out, divest or relinquish the Valiant UK exploration portfolio in order to create further value. BRIDGE LOAN FACILITY The Company remains on schedule to refinance the existing $350 million Bridge Loan facility, which was fully drawn on April 19, 2013 as part of financing the Valiant acquisition, into an enlarged Senior Borrowing Base facility in the second half of the year. NORWEGIAN DEBT FACILITY On July 1, 2013 the company signed a NOK 450Enlarged Senior million (-$75 million) Norwegian ExplorationBorrowing Base Financing Facility. Under the Norwegian taxfacility to be regime, 78% of exploration, appraisal andestablished in H2 supporting expenditure resulting from operations2013 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf is refunded by the Government in the December of the yearfollowing the year the costs were incurred. This facility will accelerate the receipt of 95% of the tax refund receivable from the Norwegian Government, significantly increasing financial flexibility and assisting Ithaca's growth in Norway. This is a conventional tax refund facility, on industry standard terms. COMMODITY HEDGING In the quarter, the Company received $9.4 million through the settlement of commodity4.3MMbbl of future hedges relating to approximately 0.7 million2013-14 oil barrels of oil and the exercise of an option toproduction hedged at swap 1 million barrels of production at $107/-$103/bbl bbl. On the day of exercise, the Brent forward curve for the period to which the hedge related was at $101 / bbl resulting in the swaption being converted to a cash settlement of $6 million and a forward swap of 1 million barrels of production at $101 / bbl. Following the above transactions, 4.3 million barrels of future 2013-14 oil production is hedged at a weighted average price of around $103 / bbl (approximately 30% puts / 70% swaps). The Company recognised a gain of $6.6 million through the revaluation of oil swaps and put options. The hedging instruments are measured at June 30, 2013 and a valuation attributed based on the Brent oil forward curve on that date (spot Brent was trading at $102.4/bbl on June 30, 2013). The gains relate to movement in the Brent oil forward curve, and an increase in the implied volatility. Q2 2013 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS REVENUE Three Months Ended June 30, 2013Record quarterly Revenue increased by $92.6 million in Q2 2013 torevenue of $128.4 $128.4 million (Q2 2012: $35.8 million). Thismillion was mainly driven by an increase in oil sales volumes, partially offset by a reduction in the oil price. Oil sales volumes increased primarily due to the inclusion of sales from the Dons and Causeway fields from April 19, 2013 following the acquisition of Valiant. In addition, there was a significant increase from the Athena field (first oil May 2012) and the additional Cook Acquisition (transaction completed in Q1 2013) offset by lower volumes from the Beatrice and Jacky fields attributable to planned shutdowns. Average realised oil prices decreased quarter on quarter from $110/bbl in Q2 2012 to $103/bbl in Q2 2013. The average Brent price for the quarter was $102/bbl compared to $108/bbl for Q2 2012. The Company's realised oil prices do not strictly follow the Brent price pattern given the various oil sales contracts in place, with certain field sales sold at a discount or premium to Brent. This decrease in average realised oil price was nonetheless offset by a realised hedging gain of $8/bbl in Q2 2013. Q2 2013 gas sales increased compared to Q2 2012, although volumes remain modest, accounting for only 2% of total revenue. Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 Revenue increased by $111.8 million in H1 2013 to $188.1 million (H1 2012: $76.3 million). This movement mainly comprises an increase in oil sales volumes, partially offset by a reduction in oil price. In line with the above quarterly movement, oil sales volumes increased primarily due to the inclusion of sales from the Dons and Causeway fields acquired from Valiant as well as the additional interest acquired in the Cook field, offset by lower volumes from the Beatrice and Jacky fields attributable to planned shutdowns. Total gas sales increased primarily as a result of higher realised gas prices, with an increase from $37/boe to $44/boe, partially offset by lower production volumes in the period. 3-Months Ended June 30th Average Realised Price 2013 2012 Oil Pre-Hedging $/bbl 103 110 Oil Post-Hedging $/bbl 111 116 Gas $/boe 41 32 6-Months Ended June 30th Average Realised Price 2013 2012 Oil Pre-Hedging $/bbl 104 113 Oil Post-Hedging $/bbl 112 116 Gas $/boe 44 37 COST OF SALES 3-Months Ended 6-Months Ended June 30th June 30th $'000 2013 2012 2013 2012 Operating Expenditure 43,155 15,406 66,382 31,128 DD&A 41,367 11,092 60,865 24,477 Movement in Oil & Gas Inventory 18,137 3,481 21,713 380 Oil Purchases 790 - 947 - Total 103,449 29,979 149,907 55,985 Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Cost of sales increased in Q2 2013 to $103.5 million (Q2 2012: $30.0 million) due to increases in operating costs, depletion, depreciation and amortisation ("DD&A") and movement in oil and gas inventory. Operating costs increased in the quarter to $43.2 million (Q2 2012: $15.4 million) primarily due to the inclusion of costs for the Dons and Causeway fields acquired from Valiant, plus the additional acquired interest in the Cook field. Unit operating costs decreased to $39/boe in the period (Q2 2012: $43/boe) mainly as a result of the inclusion of the lower cost Dons and Causeway fields acquired from Valiant. Unit operating costs were not reduced further in the quarter because of the planned Beatrice shutdown and a light well intervention campaign on the West Don field. Absent these two events, the combined unit operating cost would have been approximately $35/boe following the Valiant acquisition. DD&A for the quarter increased to $41.4 million (Q2 2012: $11.1 million). This was primarily due to higher production volumes in Q2 2013 as a result of the addition of the Dons and Causeway fields, together with a full quarter of production from the Athena field and the additional acquired interest in the Cook field. The blended DD&A rate for the quarter increased to $37/boe (Q2 2012: $30/boe). The blended DD&A rate in Q2 2012 was unusually low due to the production mix, however the driver for the increase hasbeen"business combination" accounting for transactions. As the below "Changes in Accounting Policies" section outlines, the adoption of IFRS and accounting for acquisitions as business combinations has led to increased DD&A rates. It should be noted that this increase in DD&A, and hence Cost of Sales, is offset by a credit in the Deferred Tax charged through the Statement of Income. An oil and gas inventory movement of $18.1 million was charged to cost of sales in Q2 2013 (Q2 2012 charge of $3.5 million). Movements in oil inventory arise due to differences between barrels produced and sold, with production being recorded as a credit to movement in oil inventory through cost of sales until the oil has been sold. In Q2 2013 more barrels of oil were sold (1,213k bbls) than produced (1,041k bbls), as a result of significant Cook field liftings.

Operating costs increased in the period to $66.4 million (H1 2012: $31.1 million) primarily due to the inclusion of costs for the Dons and Causeway fields acquired from Valiant, plus increased Athena costs (only part period in 2012) and the additional interest acquired in the Cook field as noted above. DD&A for the period increased to $60.9 million (H1 2012: $24.5 million). This was primarily due to higher production volumes in H1 2013 with the addition of the Dons and Causeway fields, together with a full quarter of production from the Athena field and the additional interest in the Cook field. An oil and gas inventory movement of $21.7 million was charged to cost of sales in H1 2013 (H1 2012: charge of $0.4 million). In H12013 more barrels of oil were sold (1,741k bbls) than produced (1,536k bbls), again mainly as a result of Cook field liftings in Q2.

Share based payment expenses increased as a result of options being granted towards the end of 2012 (none end 2011), therefore higher amortisation expense has been reflected through Q2 2013. Valiant acquisition costs of $9.6 million were incurred in the quarter with approximately half of the costs relating to advisory fees and the other half to restructuring costs. The post-acquisition restructuring is now complete, with Valiant's UK office now closed and new management in place in Norway. Exploration and evaluation expenses of $0.1 million were recorded in the quarter (Q2 2012: $0.0 million) primarily due to the expensing of previously capitalised costs relating to areas where exploration and evaluation activities have ceased. Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 Total administrative expenses increased in the period to $5.5 million (H1 2012: $2.4 million) primarily associated with an increase in general and administrative expenses as a result of the associated costs of an enlarged Ithaca group post the Valiant acquisition as well as higher levels of corporate activity, particularly in the first quarter of the year. FOREIGN EXCHANGE & FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 A foreign exchange loss of $2.6 million was recorded in Q2 2013 (Q2 2012: $1.5 million). The majority of the Company's revenue is US dollar driven while operating expenditures are primarily incurred in British pounds. As such, general volatility in the USD:GBP exchange rate is the driver behind the foreign exchange gains and losses, particularly on the revaluation of the GBP bank accounts (USD:GBP 1.52 at the start and end of the quarter but fluctuating between 1.50 and 1.58 during the quarter). This volatility was partially offset by the foreign exchange hedges and resultant gains described below. The Company recorded a $17.5 million gain on financial instruments for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 (Q2 2012: $19.3 million). The gain was predominantly due to a $9.4 million realised gain on commodity hedges together with a $6.6 million increase in the value of oil swaps and put options, due to a reduction in the Brent oil forward curve, and an increase in the implied volatility. In addition, the Company realised a gainof $0.8 million on foreign exchange instruments as well as a $0.6 million gain on the revaluation of foreign exchange instruments. The Company continues to limit exposure to fluctuations in foreign currencies with forward contracts to hedge a further GBP100 million and EUR30 million of capital expenditure on the GSA development at rates of $1.52: GBP1.00 and $1.29: EUR1.00. Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 A foreign exchange loss of $2.1 million was recorded in H1 2013 (H1 2012: $0.1 million gain). As above, general volatility in the USD:GBP exchange rate was the main driver behind the foreign exchange loss in H1 2013 (USD:GBP at January 1, 2013: 1.62. USD:GBP at June 30, 2013: 1.52 with fluctuations between 1.48 and 1.64 during the period). The Company recorded a $10.3 million gain on financial instruments for the six months ended June 30, 2013 (H1 2012: $18.6 million). This was primarily driven by a $13.6 million realised gain on commodity hedges, including a $6 million settlement on the swaption conversion, partially offset by a $2.4 million downwards revaluation of commodity hedges due to a reduction in value of oil swaps and put options together with a $1.5 million loss on the revaluation of foreign exchange instruments. NEGATIVE GOODWILL If the cost of an acquisition is more than the fair value of net assets acquired, the difference is recognised on the balance sheet as goodwill. Conversely, if the cost of an acquisition is less than the fair value of the assets acquired, the difference is recognised as negative goodwill in the statement of income. As a result of business combination accounting for the Valiant acquisition, $48.0 million of negative goodwill was recognised in the quarter ended June 30, 2013. In addition, $0.9 million negative goodwill was recognised in Q1 2013 in relation to the Cook Acquisition representing negative goodwill of $48.9 million in the six month period ended June 30, 2013. TAXATION Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 A tax charge of $16.9 million was recognised in the quarter ended June 30, 2013 (Q2 2012: $8.5No UK tax million credit). $18.5 million is a non-cashanticipated to be charge relating to UK taxation and is a productpayable in the of adjustments to the deferred tax chargemid-term primarily relating to the UK Ring Fence Expenditure Supplement and share based payments. As noted in the Cost Of Sales section the deferred tax credit is increased by the use of accounting for acquisitions as business combinations. The remaining $1.6 million credit is due to Norway tax refunds which have been generated as a result of exploration expenditure, incurred by Ithaca's Norwegian operations, expensed in the statement of income. Further Norwegian tax refunds totalling $70 million relate to Norwegian capital expenditure and are recognised on the balance sheet. As a result of the above factors, profit after tax decreased to $52.2 million (Q2 2012: $30.2 million). Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 A tax charge of $15.7 million was recognised in the six months ended June 30, 2013 (H1 2012: $7.7 million credit). $17.3 million of this non-cash charge relates to UK taxation and is a product of adjustments to the deferred tax charge primarily relating to the UK Ring Fence Expenditure Supplement and share based payments. The remaining $1.6 million credit is due to Norway tax credits which have been generated as a result of exploration expenditure incurred by Ithaca's Norwegian operations. As a result of the above factors, profit after tax decreased to $55.7 million (H1 2012: $43.2million). No taxes are expected to be paid in the mid-term relating to upstream oil and gas activities as a result of the $923 million UK tax allowances pool available to the Company. CAPITAL INVESTMENTS $608 million of the total $748 million capital additions to D&P assets in H1 2013 wasCapital expenditure attributable to the fair value on acquisition ofdriven by the Valiant producing fields resulting fromsignificant business combination accounting (the totalinvestment in acquisition cost being $293.6 million). Thedevelopment projects remaining D&P additions of $140 million relateand the acquisition primarily to the acquisition of the additionalof Valiant interest in the Cook field and execution of the GSA development, with the main areas of expenditure being on the manufacture and fabrication of subsea infrastructure and execution of the FPF-1 modification works (as described above). Capital expenditure on E&E assets in H1 2013 was $29.7 million, offset by a $24.2 million release of the acquired E&E liability, resulting in a net addition of $5.5 million. Expenditure was primarily focused on the Storbarden and Norvarg exploration and appraisal wells in Norway as well as UK development projects. As part of the Valiant acquisition accounting, a liability was created to cover the committed exploration spend along with a corresponding asset for the associated Norwegian tax credit receivable. This liability is released as the spend is incurred, essentially resulting in a nil asset value within PP&E. $'000 Q2 2013 Q2 2012 Development & Production ("D&P") 748,223 58,558 Exploration & Evaluation ("E&E") 5,495 2,553 Other Fixed Assets 567 43 Total 754,285 61,154 LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES $'000 Q2 2013 Q4 2012 Increase /(Decrease) Cash & Cash Equivalents 30,319 31,376 (1,057) Trade & Other Receivables 278,747 173,949 104,798 Inventory 20,790 15,878 4,912 Other Current Assets 15,560 8,251 7,309 Trade & Other Payables (365,281) (205,635) (159,646) Net Working Capital (19,865) 23,819 43,684 As at June 30, 2013, Ithaca had a working capital credit of $19.9 million including a cash balance of $30.3 million. Available cash has been, and is currently, invested in money market deposit accounts with BNP Paribas ("BNPP"). Management has received confirmation from the financial institution that these funds are available on demand. Cash and cash equivalents remained relatively constant period on period with other working capital movements driven by the timing of receipts and payments of balances. A significant proportion of Ithaca's accounts receivable balance is with customers in the oil and gas industry and is subject to normal joint venture/industry credit risks. The Company assesses partners' credit worthiness before entering into joint venture agreements. The Company regularly monitors all customer receivable balances outstanding in excess of 90 days. As at June 30, 2013, substantially all of the accounts receivable is current, being defined as less than 90 days. In the past, the Company has not experienced credit loss in the collection of accounts receivable. At June 30, 2013, Ithaca had two loan facilities totalling $780 million, being the existing BNPP facility (the "Facility") of $430 million and an additional bridge loan (the "Bridge Facility") of $350 million. At quarter end, the Company had unused credit facilities totalling $404 million (Q4 2012: $430 million). $376 million was drawn down under the facilities at June 30, 2013, being $30 million drawn under the Facility and $346 million drawn under the Bridge Facility. During the quarter ended June 30, 2013, there was a net cash outflow of approximately $38.5 million (Q2 2012: inflow of $21.9 million). Cashflow from Operations Cash generated from operating activities in Q2 2013 was $65.0 million primarily due to cash generated from Athena, Beatrice, Jacky, Anglia, Cook and Broom operations, augmented in Q2 2013 primarily due to the inclusion of Dons and Causeway operations. Cashflow from Financing Activities Cash generated from financing activities in Q2 2013 was $196.9 million primarily due to the draw down of the existing debt facility in Q2 2013 ($320 million), partially offset by the repayment of the existing Valiant loan ($115 million). Cashflow from Investing Activities Cash used in investing activities in Q2 2013 was $259.4 million primarily due to the cash consideration paid on the Valiant acquisition as well as further capital expenditure on the GSA development, including modification of the FPF-1 and subsea infrastructure fabrication works. The Company continues to be fully funded, with more than sufficient financial resources to cover its anticipated future commitments from its existing cash balance, debt facilities and forecast cashflow from operations. No unusual trends or fluctuations are expected outside the ordinary course of business. COMMITMENTS The engineering financial commitments relate to committed capital expenditure on the Stella and Harrier fields, as well as ongoing capital expenditure on existing producing fields. Rig commitments reflect rig hire costs committed in relation to the anticipated Stella wells. As stated above, these commitments are expected to be funded through the Company's existing cash balance, forecast cashflow from operations and its debt facility. $'000 1 Year 2-5 Years 5+ Years Office Leases 423 1,316 - Other Operating Leases 12,319 12,078 - Exploration Licence Fees 583 - - Engineering 159,861 - - Rig Commitments 46,269 - - Total 219,455 13,394 - OUTSTANDING SHARE INFORMATION The Company's common shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") in Canada under the symbol "IAE" and on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") in the UK under the symbol "IAE".

The Company has utilised forward sales contracts and foreign exchange contracts to take advantage of higher commodity prices while reducing the exposure to price volatility. These contracts can cause volatility in profit after tax as a result of unrealised gains and losses due to movements in the oil price and USD : GBP exchange rate. Q3 2011 was restated following the Company's election to present all acquisitions since the IFRS transition date as business combinations in accordance with IFRS 3(R). Refer to the "Changes in Accounting Policies" below for more details. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS All financial instruments are initially measured in the balance sheet at fair value. Subsequent measurement of the financialinstruments is based on their classification. The Company has classified each financial instrument into one of these categories: held-for-trading, held-to-maturity investments, loans and receivables, or other financial liabilities. Loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments and other financial liabilities are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method. For all financial assets and financial liabilities that are not classified as held-for-trading, the transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of a financial asset or financial liability are adjusted to the fair value initially recognised for that financial instrument. These costs are expensed using the effective interest rate method and are recorded within interest expense. Held-for-trading financial assets are measured at fair value and changes in fair value are recognised in net income. All derivative instruments are recorded in the balance sheet at fair value unless they qualify for the expected purchase, sale and usage exemption. All changes in their fair value are recorded in income unless cash flow hedge accounting is used, in which case changes in fair value are recorded in other comprehensive income until the hedged transaction is recognised in net earnings. The Company has classified its cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, derivatives, commodity hedges and long term liability as held-for-trading, which are measured at fair value with changes being recognised in net income. Accounts receivable are classified as loans and receivables; operating bank loans, accounts payable and accrued liabilities are classified as other liabilities, all of which are measured at amortised cost.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Ithaca and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Ithaca Energy (Holdings) Limited ("Ithaca Holdings"), Ithaca Energy (UK) Limited ("Ithaca UK"), Ithaca Minerals North Sea Limited ("Ithaca Minerals") and Ithaca Energy Holdings (UK) Limited ("Ithaca Holdings UK") and its associates FPU Services Limited ("FPU") and FPF-1 Limited ("FPF-1"). The consolidated financial statements also include, from 19 April 2013 only (being the acquisition date) the Valiant group of companies, comprising the following companies: - Ithaca Petroleum Limited (formerly Valiant Petroleum plc) - Ithaca Causeway Limited (formerly Valiant Causeway Limited) - Ithaca Exploration Limited (formerly Valiant Exploration Limited) - Ithaca Alpha (NI) Limited (formerly Valiant Alpha (NI) Limited - Ithaca Gamma Limited (formerly Valiant Gamma Limited) - Ithaca Epsilon Limited (formerly Valiant Epsilon Limited) - Ithaca Delta Limited (formerly Valiant Delta Limited) - Ithaca Petroleum Holdings AS (formerly Valiant Petroleum Holdings AS) - Ithaca Petroleum Norge AS (formerly Valiant Petroleum Norge AS) - Ithaca Technology AS (formerly Valiant Technology AS) - Ithaca AS (formerly Querqus AS) - Ithaca Petroleum EHF (formerly Valiant Petroleum EHF) All inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated on consolidation. A significant portion of the Company's North Sea oil and gas activities are carried out jointly with others. The consolidated financial statements reflect only the Company's proportionate interest in such activities. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES Certain accounting policies require that management make appropriate decisions with respect to the formulation of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. These accounting policies are discussed below and are included to aid the reader in assessing the critical accounting policies and practices of the Company and the likelihood of materially different results being reported. Ithaca's management reviews these estimates regularly. The emergence of new information and changed circumstances may result in actual results or changes to estimated amounts that differ materially from current estimates. The following assessment of significant accounting policies and associated estimates is not meant to be exhaustive. The Company might realise different results from the application of new accounting standards promulgated, from time to time, by various rule-making bodies. Capitalised costs relating to the exploration and development of oil and gas reserves, along with estimated future capital expenditures required in order to develop proved and probable reserves are depreciated on aunit-of-production basis, by asset, using estimated proved and probable reserves as adjusted for production. A review is carried out each reporting date for any indication that the carrying value of the Company's D&P assets may be impaired. For D&P assets where there are such indications, an impairment test is carried out on the Cash Generating Unit ("CGU"). Each CGU is identified in accordance with IAS 36. The Company's CGUs are those assets which generate largely independent cash flows and are normally, but not always, single developments or production areas. The impairment test involves comparing the carrying value with the recoverable value of an asset. The recoverable amount of an asset is determined as the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and value in use, where the value in use is determined from estimated future net cash flows. Any additional depreciation resulting from the impairment testing is charged to the Statement of Income. Goodwill is tested annually for impairment and also when circumstances indicate that the carrying value may be at risk of being impaired. Impairment is determined for goodwill by assessing the recoverable amount of each CGU to which the goodwill relates. Where the recoverable amount of the CGU is less than its carrying amount, an impairment loss is recognised in the Statement of Income.Impairment losses relating to goodwill cannot be reversed in future periods. Recognition of decommissioning liabilities associated with oil and gas wells are determined using estimated costs discounted based on the estimated life of the asset. In periods following recognition, the liability and associated asset are adjusted for any changes in the estimated amount or timing of the settlement of the obligations. The liability is accreted up to the actual expected cash outlay to perform the abandonment and reclamation. The carrying amounts of the associated assets are depleted using the unit of production method, in accordance with the depreciation policy for development and production assets. Actual costs to retire tangible assets are deducted from the liability as incurred. All financial instruments, other than those designated as effective hedging instruments, are initially recognised at fair value on the balance sheet. The Company's financial instruments consist of cash, restricted cash, accounts receivable, deposits, derivatives, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and the long term liability on the Beatrice acquisition. Measurement in subsequent periods is dependent on the classification of the respective financial instrument. In order to recognise share based payment expense, the Company estimates the fair value of stock options granted using assumptions related to interest rates, expected life of the option, volatility of the underlying security and expected dividend yields. These assumptions may vary over time. The determination of the Company's income and other tax liabilities / assets requires interpretation of complex laws and regulations. Tax filings are subject to audit and potential reassessment after the lapse of considerable time. Accordingly, the actual income tax liability may differ significantly from that estimated and recorded on the financial statements. The accrual method of accounting will require management to incorporate certain estimates of revenues, production costs and other costs as at a specific reporting date. In addition, the Company must estimate capital expenditures on capital projects that are in progress or recently completed where actual costs have not been received as of the reporting date. CONTROL ENVIRONMENT Ithaca has established disclosure controls, procedures and corporate policies so that its consolidated financial results are presented accurately, fairly and on a timely basis. The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have designed, or have caused such internal controls over financial reporting to be designed under their supervision, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and preparation of the Company's financial statements in accordance with IFRS with no material weaknesses identified. Based on their inherent limitations, disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements and even those options determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. As of June 30, 2013, there were no changes in Ithaca's internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended June 30, 2013 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES On January 1, 2011, the Company adopted IFRS using a transition date of January 1, 2010. The financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, including required comparative information, have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). The Company elected to present all acquisitions since the IFRS transition date as business combinations in accordance with IFRS 3(R). One impact of accounting for acquisitions as business combinations is the recognition of asset values, upon which the DD&A rate is calculated as pre-tax fair values and the recognition of a deferred tax liability on estimated future cash flows. With current tax rates at 62% this increases the DD&A charge for such assets. An offsetting reduction is recognised in the deferred tax charged through the consolidated statement of income. In May 2011, the IASB issued the following standards: IFRS 10, Consolidated Financial Statements ("IFRS 10"), IFRS 11, Joint Arrangements ("IFRS 11"), IFRS 12, Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities ("IFRS 12"), IAS 27, Separate Financial Statements ("IAS 27"), IFRS 13, Fair Value Measurement ("IFRS 13") and amended IAS 28, Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures ("IAS 28"). Each of the new standards is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013. There has been no material impact from the adoption of the new and amended standards on the Company's financial statements. OTHERNon-IFRS 'Cashflow from operations' referred to in this MD&A isMeasures not prescribed by IFRS. This non-IFRS financial measure does not have any standardised meaning and therefore is unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company uses this measure to help evaluate its performance. As an indicator of the Company's performance, cashflow from operations should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net cash from operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS. The Company considers Cashflow from operations to be a key measure as it demonstrates the Company's underlying ability to generate the cash necessary to fund operations and support activities related to its major assets. Cashflow from operations is determined by adding back changes in non-cash operating working capital to cash from operating activities.BOE The calculation of boe is based on a conversion rate ofPresentation six thousand cubic feet of natural gas ("mcf") to one barrel of crude oil ("bbl"). The term boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 mcf: 1 bbl, utilising a conversion ratio at 6 mcf: 1 bbl may be misleading as an indication of value.Well Test Certain well test results disclosed in this MD&AResults represent short-term results, which may not necessarily be indicative of long-term well performance or ultimate hydrocarbon recovery there from.Off Balance The Company has certain lease agreements and rigSheet commitments which were entered into in the normal courseArrangements of operations, all of which are disclosed under the heading "Commitments", above. Leases are treated as either operating leases or finance leases based on the extent to which risks and rewards incidental to ownership lie with the lessor or the lessee under IAS 17. No asset or liability value has been assigned to any leases on the balance sheet as at June 30, 2013.Related A director of the Company is a partner of Burstall WingerParty LLP who acts as counsel for the Company. The amount ofTransactions fees paid to Burstall Winger LLP in Q2 2013 was $0.0 million (Q2 2012: $0.1 million). These transactions are in the normal course of business and are conducted on normal commercial terms with consideration comparable to those charged by third parties. As at June 30, 2013 the Company had a loan receivable from FPF-1 Ltd, an associate of the Company, for $21.6 million (Q2 2012: $21.6 million) as a result of the completion of the GSA transactions in 2012. RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES The business of exploring for, developing and producing oiland natural gas reserves is inherently risky. There is substantial risk that the manpower and capital employed will not result in the finding of new reserves in economic quantities. There is a risk that the sale of reserves may be delayed due to processing constraints, lack of pipeline capacity or lack of markets. The Company is dependent upon the production rates and oil price to fund the current development program. For additional detail regarding the Company's risks and uncertainties, refer to the Company's Annual Information Form dated March 25, 2013, (the "AIF") filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

An Authorisation may be revoked by the relevant regulatory authority if the other interest-holder is no longer deemed to be financially credible. There can be no assurance that any of the obligations required to maintain each Authorisation will be met. Although the Company believes that the Authorisations will be renewed following expiry or granted (as the case may be), there can be no assurance that such authorisations will be renewed or granted or as to the terms of such renewals or grants. The termination or expiration of the Company's Authorisations may have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations and business. The areas covered by the Authorisations are or may be subject to agreements with the proprietors of the land. If such agreements are terminated, found void or otherwise challenged, the Company may suffer significant damage through the loss of opportunity to identify and extract oil or gas.Operational The Company is subject to the The Company acts at allRisk risks associated with owning times as a reasonable and oil and natural gas prudent operator.

NATURE OF OPERATIONSIthaca Energy Inc. (the "Corporation" or "Ithaca"), incorporated anddomiciled in Alberta, Canada on 27 April 2004, is a publicly tradedcompany involved in the exploration, development and production of oiland gas in the North Sea. The Corporation's registered office is 1600,333 - 7th Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2P 2Z1. TheCorporation's shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada andthe London Stock Exchange's Alternative Investment Market in the UnitedKingdom under the symbol "IAE".2. BASIS OF PREPARATIONThese interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared inaccordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements,including IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. These interimconsolidated financial statements do not include all the necessaryannual disclosures in accordance with IFRS.The policies applied in these condensed interim consolidated financialstatements are based on IFRS issued and outstanding as of 12 August2013, the date the Board of Directors approved the statements. Anysubsequent changes to IFRS that are given effect in the Corporation'sannual consolidated financial statements for the year ending 31December 2013 could result in restatement of these interim consolidatedfinancial statements.The condensed interim consolidated financial statements should be readin conjunction with the Corporation's annual financial statements forthe year ended 31 December 2012.3. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES, JUDGEMENTS AND ESTIMATIONUNCERTAINTYBasis of measurementThe consolidated financial statements have been prepared under thehistorical cost convention, except for the revaluation of certainfinancial assets and financial liabilities (under IFRS) to fair value,including derivative instruments.Basis of consolidationThe consolidated financial statements of the Corporation include theaccounts of Ithaca Energy Inc. and all wholly-owned subsidiaries aslisted per note 28. Ithaca has seventeen wholly-owned subsidiaries,thirteen of which were acquired on 19 April 2013 as part of theacquisition of Valiant Petroleum PLC ("Valiant"). The consolidatedfinancial statements include the Valiant group of companies from 19April 2013 only (being the acquisition date). All inter-companytransactions and balances have been eliminated on consolidation.A subsidiary is an entity which the Corporation controls by having thepower to govern the financial and operating policies. The existence andeffect of potential voting rights that are currently exercisable orconvertible are considered when assessing whether Ithaca controlsanother entity. A subsidiary is fully consolidated from the date onwhich control is obtained by Ithaca and is de-consolidated from thedate that control ceases.Investments in associatesInterests in entities over which Ithaca has significant influence, butnot control or joint control, are accounted for using the equitymethod. Ithaca's share of equity investments' results are recorded inthe consolidated statement of income.Business CombinationsBusiness combinations are accounted for using the acquisition method.The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assetsacquired, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumedat the date of completion of the acquisition. Acquisition costsincurred are expensed and included in administrative expenses.Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilitiesassumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fairvalues at the acquisition date. The excess of the cost of acquisitionover the fair value of the Corporation's share of the identifiable netassets acquired is recorded as goodwill. If the cost of the acquisitionis less than the Corporation's share of the net assets required, thedifference is recognised directly in the statement of income asnegative goodwill.GoodwillCapitalisationGoodwill acquired through business combinations is initially measuredat cost, being the excess of the aggregate of the considerationtransferred and the amount recognised as the fair value of theCorporation's share of the identifiable net assets acquired andliabilities assumed. If this consideration is lower than the fair valueof the identifiable assets acquired, the difference is recognised inthe statement of income.ImpairmentGoodwill is tested annually for impairment and also when circumstancesindicate that the carrying value may be at risk of being impaired.Impairment is determined for goodwill by assessing the recoverableamount of each cash generating unit ("CGU") to which the goodwillrelates. Where the recoverable amount of the CGU is less than itscarrying amount, an impairment loss is recognised in the statement ofincome. Impairment losses relating to goodwill cannot be reversed infuture periods.Foreign currency translationItems included in the financial statements are measured using thecurrency of the primary economic environment in which the Corporationand its subsidiary operate (the 'functional currency'). Theconsolidated financial statements are presented in United StatesDollars, which is the Corporation's functional and presentationcurrency.Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functionalcurrency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of thetransactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from thesettlement of such transactions and from the translation at year endexchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated inforeign currencies are recognised in the statement of income.Share based paymentsThe Corporation has a share based payment plan as described in note 20(c). The expense is recorded in the statement of income or capitalisedfor all options granted in the year, with the gross increase recordedin the share based payment reserve. Compensation costs are based on theestimated fair values at the time of the grant and the expense orcapitalised amount is recognised over the vesting period of theoptions. Upon the exercise of the stock options, consideration paidtogether with the amount previously recognised in share based paymentreserve is recorded as an increase in share capital. In the event thatvested options expire unexercised, previously recognised compensationexpense associated with such stock options is not reversed. In theevent that unvested options are forfeited or expired, previouslyrecognised compensation expense associated with the unvested portion ofsuch stock options is reversed.Cash and Cash EquivalentsFor the purpose of the statement of cash flow, cash and cashequivalents include investments with an original maturity of threemonths or less.Restricted cashCash that is held for security for bank guarantees is reported in thebalance sheet and cash flow statements separately. If the expectedduration of the restriction is less than twelve months then it is shownin current assets.Financial InstrumentsAll financial instruments, other than those designated as effectivehedging instruments, are initially recognised at fair value in thestatement of financial position. The Corporation's financialinstruments consist of cash, restricted cash, accounts receivable,deposits, derivatives, accounts payable, accrued liabilities,contingent consideration and the long term liability on the Beatriceacquisition. The Corporation classifies its financial instruments intoone of the following categories: held-for-trading financial assets andfinancial liabilities; held-to-maturity investments; loans andreceivables; and other financial liabilities. All financial instrumentsare required to be measured at fair value on initial recognition.Measurement in subsequent periods is dependent on the classification ofthe respective financial instrument.Held-for-trading financial instruments are subsequently measured atfair value with changes in fair value recognised in net earnings. Allother categories of financial instruments are measured at amortisedcost using the effective interest method. Cash and cash equivalents areclassified as held-for-trading and are measured at fair value. Accountsreceivable are classified as loans and receivables. Accounts payable,accrued liabilities, certain other long-term liabilities, and long-termdebt are classified as other financial liabilities. Although theCorporation does not intend to trade its derivative financialinstruments, they are classified as held-for-trading for accountingpurposes.Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition orissue of a financial asset or liability and original issue discounts onlong-term debt have been included in the carrying value of the relatedfinancial asset or liability and are amortised to consolidated netearnings over the life of the financial instrument using the effectiveinterest method.The Corporation may designate financial instruments as a hedginginstrument for accounting purposes. Hedge accounting requires thedesignation of a hedging relationship, including a hedged and a hedgingitem, identification of the risk exposure being hedged and anexpectation that the hedging relationship will be highly effectivethroughout its term.The Corporation assesses, both at the hedge's inception and on anongoing basis, whether the derivative financial instruments designatedas hedges are highly effective in offsetting changes in cash flows ofthe hedged items. The effective portion of the gains and losses on cashflow hedges is recorded in Other Comprehensive Income until the hedgedtransaction is recognised in net earnings. Any hedge ineffectiveness isimmediately recognised in net earnings. When the hedged transaction isrecognised in net earnings, the fair value of the associated cash flowhedging item is reclassified from other reserves into net earnings.Hedge accounting is discontinued on a prospective basis when thehedging relationship no longer qualifies for hedge accounting.Analysis of the fair values of financial instruments and furtherdetails as to how they are measured are provided in notes 25 to 27.InventoryInventories of materials and product inventory supplies, other than oiland gas inventories, are stated at the lower of cost and net realisablevalue. Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out method. Oil andgas inventories are stated at fair value less cost to sell.Property, Plant and EquipmentOil and gas expenditure - exploration and evaluation assetsCapitalisationPre-acquisition costs on oil and gas assets are recognised in thestatement of income when incurred. Costs incurred after rights toexplore have been obtained, such as geological and geophysical surveys,drilling and commercial appraisal costs and other directly attributablecosts of exploration and evaluation including technical, administrativeand share based payment expenses are capitalised as intangibleexploration and evaluation ("E&E") assets.E&E costs are not amortised prior to the conclusion of evaluationactivities. At completion of evaluation activities, if technicalfeasibility is demonstrated and commercial reserves are discoveredthen, following development sanction, the carrying value of the E&Easset is reclassified as a development and production ("D&P") asset,but only after the carrying value is assessed for impairment and whereappropriate its carrying value adjusted. If after completion ofevaluation activities in an area, it is not possible to determinetechnical feasibility and commercial viability or if the legal right toexplore expires or if the Corporation decides not to continueexploration and evaluation activity, then the costs of suchunsuccessful exploration and evaluation is written off to the statementof income in the period the relevant events occur.ImpairmentThe Corporation's oil and gas assets are analysed into CGUs forimpairment review purposes, with E&E asset impairment testing beingperformed at a grouped CGU level. The current E&E CGU consists of theCorporation's whole E&E portfolio. E&E assets are reviewed forimpairment when circumstances arise which indicate that the carryingvalue of an E&E asset exceeds the recoverable amount. When reviewing E&Eassets for impairment, the combined carrying value of the groupedCGU is compared with the grouped CGU's recoverable amount. Therecoverable amount of a grouped CGU is determined as the higher of itsfair value less costs to sell and value in use. Impairment lossesresulting from an impairment review are written off to the statement ofincome.Oil and gas expenditure - development and production assetsCapitalisationCosts of bringing a field into production, including the cost offacilities, wells and sub-sea equipment, direct costs including staffcosts and share based payment expense together with E&E assetsreclassified in accordance with the above policy, are capitalised as aD&P asset. Normally each individual field development will form anindividual D&P asset but there may be cases, such as phaseddevelopments, or multiple fields around a single production facilitywhen fields are grouped together to form a single D&P asset.DepreciationAll costs relating to a development are accumulated and not depreciateduntil the commencement of production. Depreciation is calculated on aunit of production basis based on the proved and probable reserves ofthe asset. Any re-assessment of reserves affects the depreciation rateprospectively. Significant items of plant and equipment will normallybe fully depreciated over the life of the field. However, these itemsare assessed to consider if their useful lives differ from the expectedlife of the D&P asset and should this occur a different depreciationrate would be chargedImpairmentA review is carried out each reporting date for any indication that thecarrying value of the Corporation's D&P assets may be impaired. For D&Passets where there are such indications, an impairment test is carriedout on the CGU. Each CGU is identified in accordance with IAS 36. TheCorporation's CGUs are those assets which generate largely independentcash flows and are normally, but not always, single developments orproduction areas. The impairment test involves comparing the carryingvalue with the recoverable value of an asset. The recoverable amount ofan asset is determined as the higher of its fair value less costs tosell and value in use, where the value in use is determined fromestimated future net cash flows. Any additional depreciation resultingfrom the impairment testing is charged to the statement of income.Non Oil and Natural Gas OperationsComputer and office equipment is recorded at cost and depreciated overits estimated useful life on a straight-line basis over three years.Furniture and fixtures are recorded at cost and depreciated over theirestimated useful lives on a straight-line basis over five years.Decommissioning liabilitiesThe Corporation records the present value of legal obligationsassociated with the retirement of long term tangible assets, such asproducing well sites and processing plants, in the period in which theyare incurred with a corresponding increase in the carrying amount ofthe related long term asset. The obligation generally arises when theasset is installed or the ground/environment is disturbed at the fieldlocation. In subsequent periods, the asset is adjusted for any changesin the estimated amount or timing of the settlement of the obligations.The carrying amounts of the associated assets are depleted using theunit of production method, in accordance with the depreciation policyfor development and production assets. Actual costs to retire tangibleassets are deducted from the liability as incurred.Contingent considerationContingent consideration is accounted for as a financial liability andmeasured at fair value at the date of acquisition with any subsequentremeasurements recognised either in the statement of income or in othercomprehensive income in accordance with IAS 39.TaxationCurrent income taxCurrent income tax assets and liabilities are measured at the amountexpected to be recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. Thetax rates and tax laws used to compute the amounts are those that areenacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.Deferred income taxDeferred tax is recognised for all deductible temporary differences andthe carry-forward of unused tax losses. Deferred tax assets andliabilities are measured using enacted or substantively enacted incometax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in whichtemporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Theeffect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in rates isincluded in earnings in the period of the enactment date. Deferred taxassets are recorded in the consolidated financial statements ifrealisation is considered more likely than not.Recent accounting pronouncementsIn May 2011, the IASB issued the following standards: IFRS 10,Consolidated Financial Statements ("IFRS 10"), IFRS 11, JointArrangements ("IFRS 11"), IFRS 12, Disclosure of Interests in OtherEntities ("IFRS 12"), IAS 27, Separate Financial Statements ("IAS 27"),IFRS 13, Fair Value Measurement ("IFRS 13") and amended IAS 28,Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures ("IAS 28"). Each of thenew standards is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1January 2013. There has been no material impact from the adoption ofthe new and amended standards on the Corporation's financialstatements.Significant accounting judgements and estimation uncertaintiesThe preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSrequires management to make estimates and assumptions regarding certainassets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Such estimates must oftenbe made based on unsettled transactions and other events and a precisedetermination of many assets and liabilities is dependent upon futureevents. Actual results may differ from estimated amounts.The amounts recorded for depletion, depreciation of property andequipment, long-term liability, stock-based compensation, contingentconsideration, decommissioning liabilities, derivatives and deferredtaxes are based on estimates. The depreciation charge and anyimpairment tests are based on estimates of proved and probablereserves, production rates, prices, future costs and other relevantassumptions. By their nature, these estimates are subject tomeasurement uncertainty and the effect on the financial statements ofchanges in such estimates in future periods could be material. Furtherinformation on each of these estimates is included within the notes tothe financial statements.4.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONOn 19 April 2013 the Corporation completed the acquisition of ValiantPetroleum PLC ("Valiant"). The total acquisition consideration was$293.6 million, being $200.6 million paid in cash and $93 million paidwith Ithaca shares. The interim condensed consolidated financialstatements include the results of Valiant from the acquisition date.The provisional fair values of the identifiable assets and liabilitiesof Valiant as at the acquisition date were: Provisional Fair value US$'000PP&E 608,000Other non-current assets 7,145Deferred tax asset 10,863Inventories 10,432Trade and other receivables 46,718Norwegian tax receivable 69,064Cash and cash equivalents 11,611Trade and other payables (151,298)Borrowings (115,000)Exploration obligations (72,500)Provisions (83,430)Total identifiable net assets at fair value 341,605Negative goodwill arising on acquisition (47,964)Total consideration 293,641The cash outflow on acquisition is as follows:Net cash acquired 11,611Cash paid (200,636)Net consolidated cash flow (189,025)From the date of acquisition, Valiant has contributed $52.1 million ofrevenue and approximately $6 million to the net profit before tax. Ifthe combination had taken place at the beginning of the year, theprofit before tax from continuing operations for the period would havebeen approximately $32 million and revenue from continuing operationswould have been $163.5 million. Note profit before tax excludesnegative goodwill.13.

LOAN FACILITYOn 29 June 2012, the Corporation executed a Senior Secured BorrowingBase Facility agreement (the "Facility") for up to $430 million, beingprovided by BNP Paribas as Lead Arranger. The loan term is up to fiveyears and attracts interest at LIBOR plus 3-4.5%. This Facilityreplaced the previous undrawn $140 million debt facility with LloydsBanking Group.The Corporation also executed a $350 million bridge loan (the "BridgeFacility") in April 2013 with BNP Paribas, the Bank of Nova Scotia andBank of America Merrill Lynch. The Bridge Facility is available for 12months and attracts interest of between LIBOR plus 1.0 - 2.25%,averaging 1.6% if drawn over the full 12 month period. The intention isto fold the borrowing secured against the Valiant assets into anenlarged borrowing base facility during 2013.The Corporation is subject to financial and operating covenants relatedto the Facility and the Bridge Facility. Failure to meet the terms ofone or more of these covenants may constitute an event of default asdefined in the facility agreements, potentially resulting inaccelerated repayment of the debt obligations.Security provided against the loanSecurity provided against the Facility is in the form of a floatingcharge over all assets of the Ithaca group pre Valiant acquisition.Security provided against the Bridge Facility is in the form of afloating charge over all former Valiant assets.The Corporation is in compliance with its financial and operatingcovenants.As at 30 June 2013, $30 million was drawn down under the Facility and$346 million was drawn down under the Bridge Facility.

TheCorporation uses a risk free rate of 3.9 percent (31 December 2012: 3.8percent) and an inflation rate of 2.1 percent (31 December 2012: 2.1percent) over the varying lives of the assets to calculate the presentvalue of the decommissioning liabilities. These costs are expected tobe incurred at various intervals over the next 10 years.The economic life and the timing of the obligations are dependent onGovernment legislation, commodity price and the future productionprofiles of the respective production and development facilities. Notethat upon the acquisition of the Beatrice Field in November 2008, theCorporation did not assume the decommissioning liabilities.18.

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTSTo estimate fair value of financial instruments, the Corporation usesquoted market prices when available, or industry accepted third-partymodels and valuation methodologies that utilise observable market data.In addition to market information, the Corporation incorporatestransaction specific details that market participants would utilise ina fair value measurement, including the impact of non-performance risk.The Corporation characterises inputs used in determining fair valueusing a hierarchy that prioritises inputs depending on the degree towhich they are observable. However, these fair value estimates may notnecessarily be indicative of the amounts that could be realised orsettled in a current market transaction. The three levels of the fairvalue hierarchy are as follows:- Level 1 - inputs represent quoted prices in active markets foridentical assets or liabilities (for example, exchange-traded commodityderivatives). Active markets are those in which transactions occur insufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on anongoing basis.- Level 2 - inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1that are observable, either directly or indirectly, as of the reportingdate. Level 2 valuations are based on inputs, including quoted forwardprices for commodities, market interest rates, and volatility factors,which can be observed or corroborated in the marketplace. TheCorporation obtains information from sources such as the New YorkMercantile Exchange and independent price publications.- Level 3 - inputs that are less observable, unavailable or where theobservable data does not support the majority of the instrument's fairvalue.In forming estimates, the Corporation utilises the most observableinputs available for valuation purposes. If a fair value measurementreflects inputs of different levels within the hierarchy, themeasurement is categorised based upon the lowest level of input that issignificant to the fair value measurement. The valuation ofover-the-counter financial swaps and collars is based on similartransactions observable in active markets or industry standard modelsthat primarily rely on market observable inputs. Substantially all ofthe assumptions for industry standard models are observable in activemarkets throughout the full term of the instrument. These arecategorised as Level 2.The following table presents the Corporation's material financialinstruments measured at fair value for each hierarchy level as of 30June 2013: Total Fair Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Value US$'000 US$'000 US$'000 US$'000Derivative financial instrument asset - 15,560 - 15,560Long term liability on Beatrice - - (2,866) (2,866)acquisitionContingent consideration - (4,000) - (4,000)Derivative financial instrument - (1,596) - (1,596)liabilityThe table below presents the total gain / (loss) on financialinstruments that has been disclosed through the statement of net andcomprehensive income: Three months Six months ended 30 June ended 30 June 2013 2012 2013 2012 US$'000 US$'000 US$'000 US$'000Revaluation of forex forward contracts 584 (428) (1,471) 541Revaluation of gas contract - 872 - 758Revaluation of other long term 96 61 153 (29)liabilityRevaluation of commodity hedges 6,623 16,858 (2,444) 16,858 7,303 17,363 (3,762) 18,128Realised gain on commodity hedges 9,374 1,908 13,560 1,709Realised gain/(loss) on forex contracts 837 68 544 68 10,211 1,976 14,104 1,777Contingent consideration - - - (1,295)Total gain on financial instruments 17,514 19,339 10,342 18,610The Corporation has identified that it is exposed principally to theseareas of market risk.i) Commodity RiskThe table below presents the total gain / (loss) on commodity hedgesthat has been disclosed through the statement of net and comprehensiveincome: Three months ended 30 June 2013 2012 US$'000 US$'000Revaluation of commodity hedges 6,623 16,858Realised gain on commodity hedges 9,374 1,908Total gain on commodity hedges 15,997 18,766Commodity price risk related to crude oil prices is the Corporation'smost significant market risk exposure. Crude oil prices and qualitydifferentials are influenced by worldwide factors such as OPEC actions,political events and supply and demand fundamentals. The Corporation isalso exposed to natural gas price movements on uncontracted gas sales.Natural gas prices, in addition to the worldwide factors noted above,can also be influenced by local market conditions. The Corporation'sexpenditures are subject to the effects of inflation, and pricesreceived for the product sold are not readily adjustable to cover anyincrease in expenses from inflation. The Corporation may periodicallyuse different types of derivative instruments to manage its exposure toprice volatility, thus mitigating fluctuations in commodity-relatedcash flows.The below represents commodity hedges in place:Derivative Term Volume Average priceOil puts July 13 - 1,268,699 bbls $105/bbl Sept 14Oil swaps July 13 - 3,048,951 bbls $102/bbl(including swaption) Dec 14Gas swaps July 13 - 2,342,000 therms 66.64p/therm Dec 14ii) Interest RiskCalculation of interest payments for the Senior Secured Borrowing BaseFacility agreement with BNP Paribas that was signed on 29 June 2012incorporates LIBOR. The Corporation will therefore be exposed tointerest rate risk to the extent that LIBOR may fluctuate. TheCorporation will evaluate its annual forward cash flow requirements ona rolling monthly basis.iii) Foreign Exchange Rate RiskThe table below presents the total (loss) on foreign exchange financialinstruments that has been disclosed through the statement of net andcomprehensive income: Three months ended 30 June 2013 2012 US$'000 US$'000Revaluation of foreign exchange forward 584 (428)contractsRealised gain on foreign exchange forward 837 68contractsTotal gain/(loss) on forex forward contracts 1,421 (360)The Corporation is exposed to foreign exchange risks to the extent ittransacts in various currencies, while measuring and reporting itsresults in US Dollars. Since time passes between the recording of areceivable or payable transaction and its collection or payment, theCorporation is exposed to gains or losses on non USD amounts and onbalance sheet translation of monetary accounts denominated in non USDamounts upon spot rate fluctuations from quarter to quarter.The below represents foreign exchange financial instruments in place:Derivative Term Value Protection rate Trigger rateForward July 13 - GBP4 million/month $1.59/GBP1.00 $1.50/GBP1.00plus Dec 13Forward July 13 - GBP100 million $1.52/GBP1.00 N/A Jan 14Forward Aug 13 - EUR30 million $1.29/EUR1.00 N/A Dec 13iv) Credit RiskThe Corporation's accounts receivable with customers in the oil and gasindustry are subject to normal industry credit risks and are unsecured.All of its oil production from the Beatrice, Jacky and Athena field issold to BP Oil International Limited. Oil production from Cook, Broom,Dons, Causeway and Fionn is sold to Shell Trading International Ltd.Anglia and Topaz gas production is currently sold through threecontracts to RWE NPower PLC and Hess Energy Gas Power (UK) Ltd. Cookgas is sold to Shell UK Ltd and Esso Exploration & Production UK Ltd.The Corporation assesses partners' credit worthiness before enteringinto farm-in or joint venture agreements. In the past, the Corporationhas not experienced credit loss in the collection of accountsreceivable. As the Corporation's exploration, drilling and developmentactivities expand with existing and new joint venture partners, theCorporation will assess and continuously update its management ofassociated credit risk and related procedures.The Corporation regularly monitors all customer receivable balancesoutstanding in excess of 90 days. As at 30 June 2013 substantially allaccounts receivables are current, being defined as less than 90 days.The Corporation has no allowance for doubtful accounts as at 30 June2013 (31 December 2012: $Nil).The Corporation may be exposed to certain losses in the event thatcounterparties to derivative financial instruments are unable to meetthe terms of the contracts. The Corporation's exposure is limited tothose counterparties holding derivative contracts with positive fairvalues at the reporting date. As at 30 June 2013, exposure is $15.6million (31 December 2012: $8.3 million).The Corporation also has credit risk arising from cash and cashequivalents held with banks and financial institutions. The maximumcredit exposure associated with financial assets is the carryingvalues.v) Liquidity RiskLiquidity risk includes the risk that as a result of its operationalliquidity requirements the Corporation will not have sufficient fundsto settle a transaction on the due date. The Corporation managesliquidity risk by maintaining adequate cash reserves, bankingfacilities, and by considering medium and future requirements bycontinuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows. The Corporationconsiders the maturity profiles of its financial assets andliabilities. As at 30 June 2013, substantially all accounts payable arecurrent.The following table shows the timing of cash outflows relating to tradeand other payables.
