   -- COMPLETION OF FARM-IN WITH TOTAL 
 
   -- MINISTERIAL APPROVAL FOR ASSIGNMENT OF 50% EQUITY AND OPERATORSHIP OF

   Dublin and London - October 18, 2017 - Providence Resources P.l.c. (PVR 
LN, PRP ID), the Irish based Oil and Gas Exploration Company, provides 
an update on Licensing Option ("LO") 16/27.  Providence is pleased to 
confirm that the agreed farm-in by TOTAL E&P Ireland B.V. ("TOTAL"), a 
wholly owned subsidiary of TOTAL S.A. has now completed.  This follows 
approval of the Minister of State at the Department of Communications, 
Climate Action and Environment to the transfer of 50% equity and 
Operatorship of LO 16/27 (Avalon) to TOTAL. 
 
   In June 2017, Providence announced (RNS June 7, 2017) that Providence 
and Sosina Exploration Limited ("Sosina") had signed a Farm-in Agreement 
("FIA") with TOTAL whereby TOTAL will take a 50% working interest and 
Operatorship in LO 16/27, subject to Ministerial approval.  Under the 
terms of the FIA, TOTAL: 
 
 
   -- Pays its pro-rata share of past gross costs of c. US$ 0.175 million 
 
   -- In addition to its pro-rata share, pays 21.4% of the past and future 
      costs during the 2-year term of LO 16/27, subject to a gross cost cap of 
      US$ 1.33 million 
 
   -- In the event that the JV partners agree to convert LO 16/27 into a 
      Frontier Exploration Licence, and a subsequent decision is taken to drill 
      an exploration well, TOTAL will pay 60% of the drilling costs, subject to 
      a gross well cap of US$ 42 million 
 
 
   With the farm-in now completed, the revised equity in LO 16/27 is TOTAL 
(Operator - 50%), Providence (40%) and Sosina (10%).
