Calgary, Alberta – Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX: MMT) (“Mart” or the “Company”) and its co- venturers, Midwestern Oil and Gas Company Plc. (“Midwestern”, Operator of the Umusadege field) and SunTrust Oil Company Limited are providing the following updates on Umusadege field production for May 2014 and other operations.

May 2014 Production Update

Umusadege field production during May 2014 averaged 10,237 bopd. Aggregate Umusadege field downtime during May 2014 was approximately 6.0 days due mainly to a shutdown of the Nigerian Agip Oil Company Limited ("NAOC") export pipeline resulting from a lack of storage capacity at the Brass River export terminal due to export shipment delays, combined with other minor operational interruptions. There were no full down days during the month. The average
field production based on producing days was 12,654 bopd in April 2014.


Total net crude oil deliveries into the NAOC export pipeline from the Umusadege field for May 2014 were approximately 322,086 bbls before pipeline losses. Based upon the 12-month rolling average rate of pipeline and export facility losses from May 2013 to April 2014 of 22.97%, Mart estimates pipeline and export facility losses for May 2014 to be approximately 73,971 bbls. Using this estimated pipeline and export facility loss volume, the total net crude deliveries into the NAOC export pipeline from the Umusadege field for May 2014 less estimated pipeline losses is 248,115 bbls.

Pipeline and export facility losses reported by NAOC and allocated to Mart and its co-venturers for April 2014 were 71,643 bbls, or 28.8% of total crude oil deliveries into the export pipeline for that month. Pipeline and export facility losses allocated to Mart and its co-venturers from January to April 2014 have averaged 14.8% of total crude oil deliveries into the export pipeline for 2014.

As previously announced, total net crude oil deliveries into the export pipeline from the Umusadege field for April 2014 were approximately 249,056 bbls, so after deducting the actual pipeline and export facility losses allocated for April 2014, the total net crude oil deliveries less losses for April 2014 were 177,413 bbls. Mart previously estimated pipeline and export facility losses for April 2014 to be approximately 55,153 bbls, based upon the 12-month rolling average rate of pipeline and export facility losses of 22.14% between April 2013 and March 2014. May 2014 pipeline and export facility losses have not yet been reported by NAOC.

Umugini Pipeline Update

The Umugini pipeline construction is nearing completion. The first 49 kilometres (“km”) of the pipeline have been completed and backfilled. Stringing of another 2 km of pipe has been completed and welding, coating, radiograph testing has been completed on approximately 1 km of this 2 km section. The installation of a fiber optic cable that is part of the leak detection system has been completed on 50 km of pipeline. A 23 km section of the pipeline has been fully hydro-tested and preparation for hydro-testing on the remaining section is in progress.

Procurement of materials and equipment required to complete the pipeline pumping, monitoring and control facilities has been completed in preparation for hook-up and commissioning of the pipeline. Midwestern, which is managing construction of the Umugini pipeline, continues to estimate that pipeline construction will be completed by the end of June 2014. Pipeline commissioning will occur following completion of pipeline construction and installation of pipeline pumping, monitoring and control facilities.

Umusadege Drilling Update

The water disposal well was completed during early June, was drilled to a depth of 6400 feet and was completed in the I sand. The final test injection rate was over 5000 barrels of water per day at a surface injection pressure of 650 psi. The good injection rates into the sand will enable improved produced water management for the Umusadege field. Following completion of the water disposal well, the rig was skidded to the existing UMU-3 well location. Directional drilling operations were commenced on June 15, 2014. The UMU-3 well will be side-tracked into the VI sand with a 700 foot horizontal wellbore at a total vertical depth of approximately 7151 feet and a total measured depth of about 8549 feet. Completion of directional drilling operations on the UMU-3 well is anticipated in July 2014. After completing the UMU-3 well operations, the rig is scheduled to be moved to the UMU-4 location for a horizontal side-track into the VII sand.

Mart Participates in Consortium for Nigerian Oil Mining Lease

Mart is a member of a consortium (the “Consortium) that has been confirmed as the preferred bidder to acquire a participating interest in an oil mining lease (the “Property”) being divested by certain multi-national oil companies currently operating in Nigeria. The Consortium is currently negotiating the terms and conditions of the acquisition of a participating interest in the Property and has paid a deposit that will be applied against the acquisition cost of the Property should

the acquisition be completed. Although the Consortium is the preferred bidder, there is no
assurance that the Consortium will successfully conclude its negotiations to acquire a participating interest in the Property. The acquisition of a participating interest in the Property by the Consortium is subject to numerous terms and conditions including Nigerian government approval.

Mart Defers Common Share Dividend

Pursuant to the Company’s dividend policy, the declaration of dividends is determined quarterly based upon Mart’s cash flows, liquidity, capital expenditure budgets, earnings, financial condition and other factors as the Board of Directors may consider appropriate from time to time. In view of Mart’s ongoing drilling program on the Umusadege field, additional capital required for the possible acquisition of the Property and uncertainty regarding timing of first oil through the Umugini Pipeline, Mart’s Board of Directors have deferred the decision to declare a quarterly dividend until the Board is able to fully assess the capital needs for the Company’s ongoing business and growth opportunities.

2014 Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders

As previously announced, Mart’s Annual General and Special Meeting (the “Meeting”) of Shareholders will be held at 3:00pm on Friday, June 20, 2014 at the Calgary Petroleum Club.
