("Hurricane" or the "Company")

Notice of Repurchase of Hurricane's U.S.$230,000,000 7.50 per cent. Convertible Bonds due 2022

Hurricane Energy plc, the UK based oil and gas company, is pleased to announce that, following the convertible bond repurchases announced on 8 and 10 December 2021, its subsidiary Hurricane GLA Limited has completed the repurchase of an additional U.S.$28.7 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company's U.S.$230,000,000 7.50 per cent. Convertible Bonds due 2022 (the "Bonds") (of which U.S.$108,507,000 (excluding the Bonds held by Hurricane GLA Limited pending cancellation) in aggregate principal amount are outstanding) for a total consideration of U.S.$27.7 million, including accrued interest.

The Bonds were acquired from Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited and will be surrendered for cancellation. Following cancellation of all purchased Bonds, the Company will have further reduced its aggregate principal amount of the Bonds outstanding to U.S.$79,815,000 and lead to a further net saving in debt repayment and interest charges of U.S.$2.6 million.

As a result of the repurchases of the Bonds announced in December 2021 and the U.S.$78.0 million tender offer which settled on 15 September 2021, the Company has generated a combined net saving of U.S.$29.4 million in debt repayment and interest charges.

The Company will continue to evaluate its liability management options which may include further Bond repurchases from time to time, subject to market conditions.

This notification does not constitute or form part of an offer to sell or purchase, or a solicitation of an offer to sell or purchase, the Bonds or any other securities.

Antony Maris, CEO of Hurricane, commented:

"Balancing reducing our debt whilst maintaining an appropriate cash balance in the current economic and volatile oil price climate are a challenge while we focus on meeting our debt repayment obligations. We will continue to look at all options to bridge any funding gap for the repayment of the Bonds while taking opportunities to generate net savings for the Company."
