EANS-Adhoc: C.A.T. oil AG's 2015 order book currently stands at EUR 234 million

  ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro
  adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely
  responsible for the content of this announcement.

Vienna, 10 February 2015 - C.A.T. oil AG (O2C, ISIN: AT0000A00Y78), the provider
of oil and gas field services in Russia and Kazakhstan, informs about the 2015
tendering campaign: despite the difficult macroeconomic environment in its core
markets and the weak oil price the Company has successfully placed more than 90%
of its fracking capacities, around 75% of its drilling capacities and 50% of its
sidetracking capacities with customers.
As of 10 February C.A.T. oil's 2015 order book stands at EUR 234 million (based
on a rouble-to-euro exchange rate of 75) compared to EUR 408 million one year
ago (based on a rouble-to-euro exchange rate of 47). The decline of 43% yoy in
euro terms is primarily attributable to the strong rouble devaluation against
the euro. In rouble terms the 2015 order book declined by 9% which reflects in
particular the suspension of sidetracking operations in Western Siberia by a
major customer and the more conservative budget planning process of C.A.T. oil's
customers in general.
The Company's 2015-2017 total order book level stands at EUR 299 million (based
on a rouble-to-euro exchange rate of 75) as of 10 February 2015. This represents
a decrease of 60% yoy compared to the 2014-2016 order book which amounted to EUR
754 million (based on a rouble-to-euro exchange rate of 47) and represented an
all-time high. The development again reflects the negative currency effects, the
lower share of sidetracking orders and a reduced share of longer-term service
orders. While last year 46% of the total orders exceeded a 12 month period, the
current level of orders which exceed a 12 month period amounts to 22%.
C.A.T. oil will continue to market its remaining free capacities with customers
over the next weeks and months.
