Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

        This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains estimates and forward-looking statements, principally in "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." Our estimates and forward-looking statements are mainly based on our current expectations and estimates of future events and trends, which affect or may affect our businesses and operations. Although we believe that these estimates and forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, they are subject to several risks and uncertainties and are made in light of information currently available to us. Many important factors, in addition to the factors described in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 21, 2012, may adversely affect our results as indicated in forward-looking statements. You should read this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the documents that we have filed as exhibits hereto completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect.

        Our estimates and forward-looking statements may be influenced by the following factors, among others:

    the discovery and development of oil and gas reserves;

    to what extent the implementation of our and our partners' prospect development and drilling plans is successful;

    projected and targeted capital expenditures and other costs and commitments;

    the availability, cost and reliability of drilling rigs, containment resources, production equipment and facilities, supplies, personnel and oilfield services;

    our and our partners' ability to obtain permits and licenses and drill in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore West Africa and to comply with applicable legislation and regulation;

    current and future government regulation of the oil and gas industry and our operations;

    changes in environmental laws or the implementation or interpretation of those laws;

    the costs and delays associated with complying with additional legislation and regulation of the oil and gas industry;

    our ability to obtain financing;

    uncertainties inherent in making estimates of our oil and natural gas data;

    our dependence on our key management personnel and our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel;

    termination of or intervention in concessions, licenses, permits, rights or authorizations granted by the United States, Angolan and Gabonese governments to us;

    competition;

    the volatility of oil prices;

    our ability to successfully develop our current prospects and to find, acquire or gain access to other prospects;

    the ability of the containment resources we have under contract to perform as designed or contain or cap any oil spill, blow-out or uncontrolled flow of hydrocarbons;

    the availability and cost of developing appropriate infrastructure around and transportation to our prospects;

    military operations, terrorist acts, wars or embargoes;

Table of Contents

    our vulnerability to severe weather events, especially tropical storms and hurricanes in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico;

    the cost and availability of adequate insurance coverage; and

    other risk factors discussed in the "Risk Factors" section of our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 21, 2012.

        The words "believe," "may," "will," "aim," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," "plan" and similar words are intended to identify estimates and forward-looking statements. Estimates and forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they were made, and, except to the extent required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or to review any estimate and/or forward-looking statement because of new information, future events or other factors. Estimates and forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and are not guarantees of future performance. As a result of the risks and uncertainties described above, the estimates and forward-looking statements discussed in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q might not occur and our future results and our performance may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements due to, including, but not limited to, the factors mentioned above. Because of these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

1. Organization and Operations

Organization

        Cobalt International Energy, Inc. (the "Company") was incorporated pursuant to the laws of the State of Delaware in August 2009 to become a holding company for Cobalt International Energy, L.P. (the "Partnership"). The Partnership is a Delaware limited partnership formed on November 10, 2005, by funds affiliated with Goldman, Sachs & Co., Riverstone Holdings LLC and The Carlyle Group as well as members of the Partnership's management team, collectively constituting Class A limited partners. In 2006, funds affiliated with KERN Partners Ltd. and certain limited partners in such funds affiliated with KERN Partners Ltd, were admitted as Class A limited partners. In 2007, First Reserve Corporation and Four Winds Consulting were admitted as Class A limited partners.

        A corporate reorganization occurred concurrently with the completion of the initial public offering ("IPO") on December 21, 2009. All the outstanding interests of the Partnership were exchanged for 283,200,000 shares of the Company's common stock and as a result the Partnership became wholly-owned by the Company. The shares of CIP GP Corp., the general partner of the Partnership were contributed by certain of the Class A limited partners holding such shares to the Company for no consideration. Prior to reorganization, the Company was not subject to federal or state income taxes. Upon completion of the corporate reorganization, the Company became subject to federal and state income taxes.

        The terms "Company," "Cobalt," "we," "us," "our," "ours," and similar terms refer to Cobalt International Energy, Inc. unless the context indicates otherwise.

Operations

        The Company is an independent, oil-focused exploration and production company with a world-class below salt prospect inventory in the deepwater of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola and Gabon in West Africa. All of its prospects are oil-focused. In the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the Company has drilled as operator two exploratory wells (Ligurian #1 and Criollo #1) and participated as non-operator in three exploratory wells (Heidelberg #1, Shenandoah #1 and Firefox #1) and two appraisal wells (Heidelberg #2 and Heidelberg #3). These drilling efforts have resulted in the discovery of oil at Shenandoah and the discovery and successful appraisal of an oil accumulation at Heidelberg. The Company is currently drilling as operator the Ligurian #2 exploratory well. Offshore Angola, the Company has drilled as operator the Cameia #1 exploratory well on Block 21 which resulted in the Cameia pre-salt oil discovery. The Company is currently drilling as operator the Cameia #2 appraisal well. The Company continues to mature high impact prospects in its portfolio for upcoming exploratory drilling in both the deepwater of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the deepwater offshore Angola and Gabon. The Company has two geographic operating segments: the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and West Africa.

        As of March 31, 2012, the Company had no proved oil and gas reserves.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)

intercompany transactions and amounts have been eliminated. Because the Company is a development stage enterprise, it has presented its financial statements in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) No. 915 "Development Stage Entities."

        The accompanying condensed unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for interim financial information and the appropriate rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnote disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be presented for the entire year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Use of Estimates

        The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates made by the Company include (i) accruals related to expenses, (ii) assumptions used in estimating fair value of equity based awards and (iii) assumptions used in impairment testing. Although the Company believes these estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ from these estimates.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

        Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the accounting standards update that required hierarchy classification for items whose fair value is only disclosed in the footnotes, additional disclosure about fair value measurements that involve significant unobservable inputs, including additional quantitative information about the unobservable inputs, a description of valuation techniques used, and a qualitative evaluation of the sensitivity of these measurements. The adoption of these standards have no material impact to the Company's financial statements.

Income (Loss) Per Share

        Basic income (loss) per share was calculated by dividing net income or loss applicable to common shares by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the periods presented. The calculation of diluted income (loss) per share should include the potential dilutive impact of non-vested restricted shares, non-vested restricted stock units and outstanding stock options during the period, unless their effect is anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, 6,595,786 and 6,719,961 shares of non-vested restricted stock, non-vested restricted stock units and outstanding stock options, respectively, were excluded from the diluted income (loss) per share because they are anti-dilutive.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)

Investments

        The Company considers all highly liquid interest-earning investments with a maturity of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents. Investments with original maturities of greater than three months and remaining maturities of less than one year are classified as short-term investments. Investments with maturities beyond one year are classified as long-term investments. The debt securities are carried at amortized costs and classified as held-to-maturity securities as the Company has the positive intent and ability to hold them until they mature. The net carrying value of held-to-maturity securities is adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts to maturity over the life of the securities. Held-to-maturity securities are stated at amortized cost, which approximates fair market value as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. Income related to these securities is reported as a component of interest income in the Company's condensed consolidated statement of operations. See Note 5—Investments.

        Investments are considered to be impaired when a decline in fair value is determined to be other-than-temporary. The Company conducts a regular assessment of its debt securities with unrealized losses to determine whether securities have other-than-temporary impairment ("OTTI"). This assessment considers, among other factors, the nature of the securities, credit rating or financial condition of the issuer, the extent and duration of the unrealized loss, market conditions and whether the Company intends to sell or whether it is more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the debt securities. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company has no OTTI in its debt securities.

6. Fair Value Measurements

        The fair values of the Company's cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, restricted funds and investments approximate their carrying amounts due to their short-term duration. The hierarchy below lists three levels of fair value based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market. The Company categorizes each of its fair value measurements as applicable to one of these three levels based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The levels are:

        Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities. This category includes the Company's cash and money market funds.

        Level 2—Quoted prices in non-active markets or in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly for substantially the full contractual term of the asset or liability being measured. This category includes the Company's U.S. Treasury bills, U.S. Treasury notes, U.S. Government agency securities, commercial paper, corporate bonds, municipal bonds and certificates of deposits.

        Level 3—Inputs that are generally unobservable and typically reflect management's estimate of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The Company does not currently have any financial instruments categorized as Level 3.

Unproved Oil and Gas Properties

        On December 20, 2011, the Company acquired a 40% working interest in Block 20 offshore Angola for a total consideration of $347.1 million, of which $337.1 million is contractually scheduled to be paid over five years commencing in January 2012. In addition to the Block 20 interests, the Company has $10.8 million of unproved property acquisition costs relating to 40% interests in Blocks 9 and 21 offshore Angola and Gabon. No significant impairment of these properties has been recognized since the Company intends to continue exploration and development of these properties. The Company also has $322.7 million of unproved property acquisition costs, net of valuation allowance, relating to its U.S. Gulf of Mexico properties. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company has a net total of $680.6 million and $683.6 million, respectively, of unproved property acquisition costs on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

        Acquisition costs of unproved leasehold properties are assessed for impairment during the holding period and transferred to proved oil and gas properties to the extent associated with successful exploration activities. Significant unproved leases are assessed individually for impairment based on the Company's current exploration plans and an allowance is provided if impairment is indicated. Unproved oil and gas leases for properties in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico with carrying value greater than $1 million are assessed individually for impairment, based on the Company's current exploration plans, and amortized, if impairment is indicated. Leases that are individually less than $1.0 million in carrying value or are near expiration are amortized on a group basis over the average terms of the leases, at rates that provide for full amortization of leases upon lease expiration. These leases have expiration dates ranging from 2012 through 2020. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the balance for unproved leaseholds that were subject to amortization before impairment provision was $73.9 million and $65.1 million, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, and for the period November 10, 2005 (inception) through March 31, 2012, the Company recorded $3.0 million, $2.5 million, and $21.4 million, respectively, as an allowance on its unproved leasehold properties which are reflected in dry hole expense and impairment in accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Capitalized Exploratory Well Costs

        If an exploratory well provides evidence as to the existence of sufficient quantities of hydrocarbons to justify potential completion as a producing well, drilling costs associated with the well are initially capitalized, or suspended, pending a determination as to whether a commercially sufficient quantity of proved reserves can be attributed to the area as a result of drilling. This determination may take longer than one year in certain areas (generally, deepwater and international locations) depending upon, among other things, (i) the amount of hydrocarbons discovered, (ii) the outcome of planned geological and engineering studies, (iii) the need for additional appraisal drilling activities to determine whether the discovery is sufficient to support an economic development plan and (iv) the requirement for government sanctioning in international locations before proceeding with development activities.

The amount of $3,035 represents pre-spud mobilization and insurance costs allocated to the Bicuar #1 pre-salt exploratory well planned as one of two exploratory wells initially scheduled to be drilled offshore Angola. With the success of the Cameia #1 exploratory well, the drilling of the Cameia #2 appraisal well was substituted for the Bicuar #1 pre-salt exploratory well. Hence these costs were reallocated to the Cameia #2 appraisal well.

These amounts represent impairment charges on exploratory wells.

        $ 97,539   $ 97,808  
                 

        Capitalized exploratory well costs that have been suspended longer than one year are associated with the Shenandoah #1, Heidelberg #1 and Ligurian #1 projects. These exploratory well costs are suspended pending ongoing evaluation including, but not limited to, results of additional appraisal drilling, well-test analysis, additional geological and geophysical data and approval of a development plan. Management believes these projects exhibit sufficient indications of hydrocarbons to justify potential development and is actively pursuing efforts to fully assess them. If additional information becomes available that raises substantial doubt as to the economic or operational viability of these projects, the associated costs will be expensed at that time.

        As of March 31, 2012, no exploratory wells have been drilled by the Company offshore Gabon.

10. Other Assets

        Costs associated with the mobilization and equipment upgrades of the Ensco 8503 drilling rig and subsea containment were deferred in other assets. In January 2012, the Company started amortizing these costs to the respective exploratory wells over the term of the Ensco 8503 drilling contract. These costs are capitalized to oil and gas properties as exploratory drilling costs. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the costs capitalized to oil and gas properties totaled $3.0 million. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the accumulated costs, net of amortization, associated with the Ensco 8503 drilling rig and subsea containment in other assets were $8.8 million and $12.1 million, respectively.

  $ 17,350   $ 2,440   $ 345,940  
               

(1)
These amounts for the period November 10, 2005 (inception) through March 31, 2012 reflect a recovery of $25,126 of past seismic costs incurred by the Company from its joint venture partners.

(2)
These amounts represent expenditures resulting from suspension of drilling activities in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico as a result of the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the resulting oil spill and the regulatory response thereto and other exploratory expenses.

14. Equity Based Compensation

        The Company accounts for stock-based compensation at fair value. The Company grants various types of stock-based awards including stock options, restricted stock and performance-based awards. The fair value of stock option awards is determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model. For restricted stock awards with market conditions, the fair value of the awards is measured using the asset-or-nothing option pricing model. Restricted stock awards without market conditions and the performance-based awards are valued using the market price of the Company's common stock on the grant date. The Company records compensation cost, net of estimated forfeitures, for stock-based compensation awards over the requisite service period except for performance-based awards. For performance-based awards, compensation cost is recognized over the requisite service period as and when the Company determines that the achievement of the performance condition is probable, using the per-share fair value measured at grant date.

        On February 24, 2012, the Company amended certain terms and conditions of its restricted stock units (RSUs) award agreement which resulted in the Company using the fair value of its common stock as of the date of such amendments to recognize the equity based compensation expense for the RSUs that vested during the first quarter of 2012 as well as the RSUs that are expected to vest during the remainder of 2012. The Company also amended certain terms and conditions of its non-qualified stock option (NQSO) Agreement. These amendments have no impact on the equity-based stock compensation expense relating to the NQSOs.

The Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") will vest in amounts of up to 200% of the target amount of shares of common stock, on the applicable vesting dates and contingent upon the recipient's continued service at such vesting dates and based upon the achievement of successful drilling results as defined in the RSU award agreement. Compensation cost will be recognized as and when the performance conditions are satisfied or when the Company determines that the achievement of the performance condition is probable. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized $2.8 million of stock compensation for the RSUs based on the performance targets achieved from the success of the Cameia #1 exploratory well and approved by the Compensation Committee during the first quarter of 2012, and the probable achievement of performance targets during the remainder of 2012.

        There were no restricted stock unit awards granted to non-employee directors during the three months ended March 31, 2012. As of March 31, 2012, the Company has granted a cumulative total of 104,741 restricted stock units to non-employee directors. During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company also granted 4,169 and 5,163 shares of common stock, respectively, as retainer awards to non-employee directors who elected to be compensated by stock in lieu of cash payments.

        Non-Qualified Stock Options.    The Company grants non-qualified stock options to employees at an exercise price equal to the market value of the Company's common stock on the grant date. The non-qualified stock option awards granted in December 2010 have contractual terms of 10 years and vest ratably over the requisite service period from date of grant. The non-qualified stock option awards granted in February 2012 have contractual terms of 10 years and are scheduled to vest on December 31, 2014. There were no non-qualified stock options granted prior to December 3, 2010.

14. Equity Based Compensation (Continued)

        The fair value of each stock option granted is determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model based on several assumptions. These assumptions are based on management's best estimate at the time of grant. The Company used the following weighted average of each assumption based on the grants issued during the three months ended March 31, 2012 (there were no new stock options granted in 2011):

 
  2012  

Expected Term in Years

    6.50  

Expected Volatility

    54.92 %

Expected Dividends

    0 %

Risk-Free Interest Rate

    4.61 %

        The Company estimates expected volatility based on its historical stock price since the IPO in December 2009. The Company estimates the expected term of its option awards based on the vesting period and average remaining contractual term, referred to as the "simplified method". The Company uses this method to provide a reasonable basis for estimating its expected term based on a lack of sufficient historical employee exercise data on stock option awards.

        A summary of the stock options activities for the year ended March 31, 2012 is presented below:

Item 2.    Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

        The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including, without limitation, those set forth in "Risk Factors" and "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" and the other matters set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Overview

        We are an independent, oil-focused exploration and production company with a world-class below salt prospect inventory in the deepwater of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola and Gabon in West Africa. All of our prospects are oil-focused. In the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, we have drilled as operator two exploratory wells (Ligurian #1 and Criollo #1) and participated as non-operator in three exploratory wells (Heidelberg #1, Shenandoah #1 and Firefox #1) and two appraisal wells (Heidelberg #2 and Heidelberg #3). These drilling efforts have resulted in the discovery of oil at Shenandoah and the discovery and successful appraisal of an oil accumulation at Heidelberg. We are currently drilling as operator the Ligurian #2 exploratory well. Offshore Angola, we have drilled as operator the Cameia #1 exploratory well on Block 21 which resulted in the Cameia pre-salt oil discovery. We are currently drilling as operator the Cameia #2 appraisal well. We continue to mature high impact prospects in our portfolio for upcoming exploratory drilling in both the deepwater of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the deepwater offshore Angola and Gabon. In addition, we will progress our existing discoveries toward development and production through follow-on appraisal drilling and pre-development planning activities.

First Quarter 2012 Operational Highlights

    On January 10, 2012, we announced that the results our of Cameia #1 exploratory well confirmed (i) our West Africa pre-salt geologic model, (ii) a significant oil column with high quality volatile oil, (iii) anticipated net pay estimates that were better than we originally expected, (iv) a high quality carbonate reservoir, and (v) that our drilling had not encountered an oil-to-water contact.

    On February 9, 2012, we announced that the Cameia #1 exploratory well was drilled in 5,518 feet (1,682 meters) of water to a total depth of 16,030 feet (4,886 meters), at which point an extensive wire-line evaluation program was conducted. The results of this wire-line evaluation program confirmed the presence of a 1,180 foot (360 meter) gross continuous oil column with over a 75% net to gross pay estimate. No gas/oil or oil/water contact was evident on the wire line logs. An extended Drill Stem Test ("DST") was performed on the Cameia #1 exploratory well to provide additional information. The DST flowed at an un-stimulated sustained rate of 5,010 barrels per day of 44-degree API gravity oil and 14.3 million cubic feet per day of associated gas (approximately 7,400 BOEPD) with minimal bottom-hole pressure drawdown. Upon shut-in, the bottom-hole pressure reverted to its initial state in less than one minute. The well bore used in the DST had a perforated interval of less than one-third of the reservoir section. The flow rate, which was restricted by surface equipment, facility and safety precautions, confirmed the presence of a very thick, continuous, high quality reservoir saturated with light oil. We believe the well, without such restrictions, would have the potential to produce in excess of 20,000 barrels of oil per day. As the Cameia #1 exploratory well only tested the pre-salt carbonate section and did not drill the entire pre-salt interval, we believe upside potential exists for additional oil in deeper pre-salt intervals.

27


Table of Contents

    On February 27, 2012, we spud the Cameia #2 appraisal well, which will be drilled to a planned total depth of up to 18,000 feet. The Cameia #2 appraisal well is expected to take 100-120 days to drill, followed by an evaluation period based on the well's results. The Cameia #2 appraisal well will help to determine the extent of the Cameia pre-salt oil discovery as well as test the upside potential in the deeper intervals not tested by the Cameia #1 exploratory well.

    Our existing contract with Z North Sea, Ltd., a subsidiary of Diamond Offshore Company ("Diamond"), for the Ocean Confidence drilling rig allows us to drill one additional well following the completion of drilling operations on our Cameia #2 appraisal well. On April 27, 2012, we executed a letter agreement with Diamond that extends the Ocean Confidence drilling contract by allowing us to use the Ocean Confidence drilling rig for an incremental additional well slot, meaning that we will be able to use the Ocean Confidence to drill two wells offshore Angola following our Cameia #2 appraisal well. In return for this additional well slot, we have agreed to allow another operator to use the Ocean Confidence to drill one well offshore Congo, which will be drilled immediately after our Cameia #2 appraisal well and before our next two wells. We expect this offshore Congo well, including mobilization and demobilization, will take approximately 120 days to drill. Our first well following our Cameia #2 appraisal well will be at a rate of $375,000 per day and the second well will be at a rate of $430,000 per day.

    We expect to complete the acquisition of approximately 4,200 square kilometers of 3-D seismic data on Block 20 offshore Angola within the next week, and are already currently processing this data.

    On January 1, 2012, we spud the Ligurian #2 exploratory well on Green Canyon Block 814 in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The Ligurian #2 exploratory well was designed to test the northwest flank of the field discovered by the Heidelberg #1 well and to evaluate deeper Miocene formations. As of April 30, 2012, we had drilled through the interval discovered by the Heidelberg #1 exploratory well and we did not encounter commercial hydrocarbons. Our drilling operations continue as we have yet to reach the deeper Miocene formations. We anticipate announcing the results of the deeper Miocene formations in the Ligurian #2 exploratory well in May. After completion of drilling activities on the Ligurian #2 exploratory well, we will immediately move the Ensco 8503 drilling rig to our North Platte #1 exploratory well location.

    We participated as a non-operator in the Heidelberg #3 appraisal well which was spud in late 2011 in Green Canyon Block 903. The Heidelberg #3 well appraised the Heidelberg Miocene oil discovery where more than 200 feet of net oil pay was discovered in February 2009. On February 16, 2012, the operator of the well announced the successful results of the well, which encountered approximately 250 feet of net pay thickness in high-quality Miocene sands. The appraisal well was drilled to a total depth of 31,030 feet in approximately 5,000 feet of water, about 1.5 miles south and 550 feet structurally updip from the Heidelberg #1 well. Log and pressure data from the Heidelberg #1 exploratory well and Heidelberg #3 appraisal well indicate excellent quality, continuous and pressure-connected reservoirs with high-quality oil.

First Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights

    We recorded a net loss of approximately $36.5 million, a 127% increase from the first quarter of 2011.

    Total operating expenses were approximately $37.7 million, a 125% increase from the first quarter of 2011.

    Cash expenditures, excluding changes in working capital, were approximately $236.3 million, which includes the approximate $123 million we funded in January 2012 to satisfy our initial obligations under our Production Sharing Contract for Block 20 offshore Angola.

28


Table of Contents

    On February 29, 2012, we completed a registered underwritten offering of 18,050,000 shares of our common stock at a public offering price of $28.00 per share, resulting in net proceeds to us, after expenses and underwriting discounts, of approximately $489.5 million. Including the net proceeds from this offering, our existing cash and investments on hand and restricted funds as of March 31, 2012, we have approximately $1.8 billion of liquidity.

Results of Operations

        We operate our business in two geographic segments: the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and West Africa. The discussion of the results of operations and the period-to-period comparisons presented below for each operating segment and our consolidated operations analyzes our historical results. The following discussion may not be indicative of future results.

U.S. Gulf of Mexico Segment:

        Oil and gas revenue.    We have not yet commenced oil production. Therefore, we did not realize any oil and gas revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

        Operating costs and expenses.    Our operating costs and expenses consisted of the following during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011:

        Seismic and exploration.    Seismic and exploration costs increased by $4.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $4.2 million for the purchase of seismic data over prospects in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, an increase of $0.4 million in lease rental costs and a decrease of $0.4 million in rig related charges. The seismic and exploration costs incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2012 consisted of (i) $4.2 million incurred for seismic data acquisition for the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. (ii) $1.4 million for leasehold delay rentals and (iii) $0.6 million of other technical study costs.

        Dry hole expense and impairment.    Dry hole expense and impairment increased by $2.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase is due to $2.3 million recorded during the quarter for the impairment to dry hole expense for the Heidelberg #3 sidetrack well and an increase of $0.5 million in the allowance for future impairment of the carrying value of our unproved leasehold properties. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we recorded an allowance of $3.0 million against future impairment on the carrying value of our unproved leasehold properties that are individually less than $1 million or are near expiration and $2.3 million related to the Heidelberg #3 sidetrack appraisal well.

        General and administrative.    General and administrative costs increased by $3.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in general and administrative costs during this period was primarily attributed to a $3.5 million increase in staff related expenses which includes equity compensation, a $1.8 million increase in office related expenses, offset by an increase of $2.1 million in recoveries from partners due to the increase in operating activity.

        Depreciation and amortization.    Depreciation and amortization did not materially change from the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011.

        Other income.    Other income increased by $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was due to an increase in interest recognized on investment securities.

        Income tax expense/benefit.    No income tax benefit has been reflected since a full valuation allowance has been established against the deferred tax asset that would have been generated as a result of the operating results.

West Africa Segment:

        Oil and gas revenue.    We have not yet commenced oil production. Therefore, we did not realize any oil and gas revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

        Operating costs and expenses.    Our operating costs and expenses consisted of the following during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011:

        Seismic and exploration.    Seismic and exploration costs increased by $10.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was primarily due to the acquisition of seismic data on Block 20 offshore Angola. The seismic and exploration costs incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2012 consisted of (i) $10.7 million

31

incurred for seismic data acquisition and processing for offshore West Africa, and (ii) $0.5 million for other technical studies.

        Dry hole expense and impairment.    No dry hole or impairment charges were incurred during the periods ending March 31, 2012 or March 31, 2011.

        General and administrative.    General and administrative costs did not change significantly for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011.

        Depreciation and amortization.    Depreciation and amortization did not materially change from the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011.

        Other income.    No other income was recorded during the periods ending March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011.

        Income tax expense/benefit.    No income tax benefit has been reflected since a full valuation allowance has been established against the deferred tax asset that would have been generated as a result of the operating results.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

        We are a development stage enterprise and will continue to be so until commencement of substantial production from our oil properties or we have proved reserves. We do not know how long it will take to achieve substantial production from our oil properties. With respect to our Cameia pre-salt oil discovery, we are currently preparing the development schedule and do not have an estimate of first oil and cash flow at this time. With respect to our non-operated U.S. Gulf of Mexico discoveries, we are unable to provide information with respect to the operator's development schedule and estimates of first oil and cash flow at this time. Until substantial production is achieved, our primary sources of liquidity are expected to be cash on hand, amounts paid pursuant to the terms of our Total alliance and funds from future equity and debt financings, asset sales and farm-out arrangements.

        We expect to incur substantial expenses and generate significant operating losses as we continue to:

    conduct our current exploration and appraisal drilling program in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola and Gabon, including increased industry costs in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico resulting from the Deepwater Horizon incident;

    develop our discoveries which we determine to be commercially viable;

    purchase and analyze seismic data in order to assess current prospects and identify future prospects;

    opportunistically invest in additional oil leases and concessional licenses in our focus areas; and

    incur expenses related to operating as a public company and compliance with regulatory requirements.

        Our future financial condition and liquidity will be impacted by, among other factors, the success of our exploration and appraisal drilling program, the number of commercially viable hydrocarbon discoveries made and the quantities of hydrocarbons discovered, the speed with which we can bring such discoveries to production, whether and to what extent we invest in additional oil leases and concessional licenses, and the actual cost of exploration, appraisal and development of our prospects.

        As of March 31, 2012, we had approximately $1.8 billion in liquidity, which includes cash and cash equivalents, short-term restricted funds, short-term investments, long-term restricted funds and long-term investments. This amount does not include the Total carry, of which approximately $172 million

Table of Contents

remains available to us, or any success payments of up to $180 million Total is obligated to pay us pursuant to the terms of our U.S. Gulf of Mexico alliance. We expect to expend approximately $550 to $650 million for our ongoing operations and general corporate purposes in 2012. First quarter cash expenditures, excluding changes in working capital, were approximately $236.3 million, which includes the approximate $123 million we funded in January 2012 to satisfy our initial obligations under our Production Sharing Contract for Block 20 offshore Angola. We expect that our existing cash on hand will be sufficient to fund our planned exploration and appraisal drilling program at least through the end of 2013. However, we may require additional funds earlier than we currently expect in order to execute our strategy as planned. We may seek additional funding through asset sales, farm-out arrangements and equity and debt financings. Additional funding may not be available to us on acceptable terms or at all. In addition, the terms of any financing may adversely affect the holdings or the rights of our existing stockholders. For example, if we raise additional funds by issuing additional equity securities, further dilution to our existing stockholders will result. If we are unable to obtain funding on a timely basis or on acceptable terms, we may be required to significantly curtail one or more of our exploration and appraisal drilling programs. We also could be required to seek funds through arrangements with collaborators or others that may require us to relinquish rights to some of our prospects which we would otherwise develop on our own, or with a majority working interest.
