Assumptions

The five year outlook set out in this presentation is not guidance. The outlook is uncertain and subject to change. The outlook has been estimated on the basis of the following assumptions: 1. a US$62.50/bbl Brent oil price in FY20 and a US$70/bbl Brent oil price from FY21; 2. 0.70 AUD/USD exchange rate in FY20 and 0.75 AUD/USD exchange rate from FY21;

3. various other economic and corporate assumptions; 4. assumptions regarding drilling results; and 5. expected future development, appraisal and exploration projects being delivered in accordance with their current expected project schedules.

FY20 guidance is uncertain and subject to change. FY20 guidance has been estimated on the basis of the following assumptions: 1. a US$62.50/bbl Brent oil price; 2. 0.70 AUD/USD exchange rate; 3. various other economic and corporate assumptions; 4. assumptions regarding drilling results; and 5. expected future development, appraisal and exploration projects being delivered in accordance with their current expected project schedules.

These future development, appraisal and exploration projects are subject to approvals such as government approvals, joint venture approvals and board approvals. Beach expresses no view as to whether all required approvals will be obtained in accordance with current project schedules.

Reserves disclosure

Beach prepares its petroleum reserves and contingent resources estimates in accordance with the Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. The reserves and contingent resources presented in this report were originally disclosed to the market in the FY19 annual report released 19 August 2019. Beach confirms that it is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the information included in the aforesaid market announcement and that all the material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the aforesaid market announcement continue to apply and have not materially changed.

The reserves and resources information in this report is based on, and fairly represents, information and supporting documentation prepared by, or under the supervision of, Mr David Capon (Manager Development Offshore Victoria, New Zealand and NT). Mr Capon is a full time employee of Beach Energy Limited and has a BSc (Hons) degree from the University of Adelaide and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He has in excess of 25 years of relevant experience. The reserves and resources information in this presentation has been issued with the prior written consent of Mr Capon as to the form and context in which it appears.

Conversion factors used to evaluate oil equivalent quantities are sales gas and ethane: 5.816 TJ per kboe, LPG: 1.398 bbl

per boe, condensate: 1.069 bbl per boe and oil: 1 bbl per boe. The reference point for reserves determination is the custody transfer point for the products. Reserves are stated net of fuel, flare & vent and third party royalties.

Development drilling

Development program: 4 x Thylacine, 2 x Geographe wells and La Bella

Artisan-1

T/30P well

  • Eleven drilling opportunities in current program: 8 development wells and 3 exploration wells
  • Rig schedule to remain flexible depending on drilling results. E.g. La Bella timing may be pushed back in the schedule depending on exploration results at Enterprise and Artisan.

Nearshore - starting close to home

Lowest development costs

Ensign 931 rig secured for ERD drilling program

  • Same rig was used to drill Halladale and Speculant development wells
  • Rig is currently drillingDombey-1 in SA Otway Basin
  • Following the completion ofDombey-1 drilling, rig will mobilise to Victoria to drill Black Watch-1 development well and Enterprise-1 exploration well
  • The onshore rig will drill highly deviated wells to reach offshore reservoirs
  • Key benefit is the onshore wellhead location, providing lower cost completion and processing options as well as fasterhook-up to the Otway Gas Plant

41

BlackWatch-1 to be drilled from Halladale well pad

Halladale as a template - Black Watch as follow up

Halladale delivered:

  • Halladale/Speculant online rate 80 MMscf/d
  • High production rates maintained by pressure support/recharge
  • 2P reserves increased by 3.6 Bcf (net) FY19 due to lower production declines supported by new mappings

Black Watch development anticipated to do the same:

  • Approximately 70% of the BlackWatch-1 well path twins the producing Halladale-2 well
  • Well designed for 60 MMscf/d

Enterprise

East Lead

  • Enterprise 7 km from Minerva in proven Waarre play
  • New Super Cube tied to proprietary transition zone data allows calibration to known fields reducing subsurface risk
  • In a success case:
    oEnterprise-1 to be cased and suspended as a future producer
    oProceed with regulatory approvals and construction of new pipeline to Otway Gas Plant

Ocean Onyx semi-submersible rig

  • Ocean Onyxsemi-submersible rig contracted in December 2018 for the offshore Otway Basin drilling program
  • Ocean Onyx is currently undergoing upgrades in Singapore
  • Upgrades are required to handle the expected operating conditions in the Otway Basin
  • Rig delivery currently expected in Q3 FY20

Key remaining milestones ahead of offshore drilling:

  • Completion of upgrade installation and operational readiness checks
  • Regulatory approvals (e.g. NOPSEMA approval of safety case)
  • Delivery of long lead items

Flexible Flowline

Existing Infrastructure

46

Umbilical

  • Schematic shows how the seven offshore development wells and Artisan exploration well (success case) would be connected to the existing offshore infrastructure
    oGeographe wells are connected with short rigid connectors to existing tie-in points
    • Short lead times and low cost
  • Thylacine wells tied back to platform using flexible flowlines
  • Reviewing options to optimise subsea infrastructure
  • La Bella tie in route depends on Artisan success, but usespre-existingtie-in points in either case

Our plan is to fill the Otway Gas Plant

…and keep it full with the lowest unit technical cost gas

  • Output to progressively ramp up as wells connected and tied in, commencing with BlackWatch-1 in H2 FY20

471. Production outlook is determined using the assumptions set out on the "Compliance Statements" slide and assumes risked exploration success and La Bella development. Any changes to the underlying assumptions could cause actual reported results to differ materially to the outlook presented. Outlook is presented on 100% basis.

Growth potential (debottlenecking)

  • Beach undertaking review of facility constraints
  • Evaluating options for increasing throughput above current capacity limit of 205 TJ/day
  • Range of low to higher cost and capacity addition options expected to be prepared
  • Capacity expansion to be considered based on results of drilling campaign

Key takeaways

  1. Safety takes precedence in everything we do
  2. Vic Otway is a strategically important asset to Beach and East Coast gas market
  1. 15-20%of Beach 2P reserves, 5 year investment and production, Vic winter gas demand (at capacity)

3. We've made significant progress in Vic Otway since acquisition

  1. Beach team has the offshore experience and capabilities
  1. Onshore and offshore rigs contracted for drilling programs
  1. Rigorous rework of all data has optimised well locations, improved understanding of assets and yielded more prospects and leads
    1. Operational efficiency ~98% reliability in FY19, > 99% in FY20 YTD
  1. Beach is preparing to execute on its 3 year, $1 billion (gross) development program designed to refill the plant and extend the life throughvalue-accretive exploration, potentially requiring de-bottlenecking
  2. Otway Gas Plant to play a key role in meeting Victorian gas demand for years to come
