Total Shareholder Returns • Capital returns • Fixed dividend – annualized $0.44/share 1 • Stock buybacks – $50MM repurchase plan • Responsible Growth • Active operators – ~11% production growth 2 • Highly scalable – cost structure largely fixed; growth has minimal impact on overhead • Not “flooding the market” – increase in GRNT production does not necessarily grow U.S. production, just our share of it Conservative Balance Sheet • Conservative leverage – 0.04x net debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDAX at 3/31/2023 • Control of capital – elect to participate in drilling on a well-by-well basis • Limited liabilities – not burdened by long-term contracts and drilling obligations common to operators • Prepared for volatility – not forced to hedge at low prices, allows for counter-cyclical investment opportunities Non-Op – A Better Way to Invest in Oil & Gas • Decreased risk – participate with a smaller piece of a larger number of wells • Asset diversity – own an interest in over 2,500 gross wells across Permian, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, DJ and Bakken • Accelerated development – high-quality near-term drilling rather than long-dated inventory Access to Private Operators • Broaden exposure – significant high-quality inventory is in the hands of private operators, particularly in the Permian • Blue chip partners – anticipate 2023 new wells turned to sales from private operators including Endeavor, Greenlake, Henry Resources, Mewbourne, Rosewood and Silver Hill/Mitsui Key Investment Highlights Granite Ridge seeks to tighten the band of outcomes in oil & gas investing and to generate asymmetric upside through high diversification, low leverage and disciplined investment underwriting 6 1 2 3 4 1.

Corporate Philosophy Results & Guidance Executive Summary Strategy & Execution Appendix Return Capital to Stockholders Cornerstone of a sustainable, resilient business, demonstrated by quarterly dividend and opportunistic buybacks Empower People Employ case-based recruiting to identify talent with the ability to do the job and the initiative to make a positive impact Source Deals Directly We often find higher risk-adjusted returns from aggregating small deals rather than buying large marketed packages Mitigate Price Risk Maintain a hedging program that protects our balance sheet and pursue diversification to mitigate price swings specific to any particular area Be a Good Partner Build relationships across multiple disciplines and actively seek creative opportunities to be a value-added partner Leverage Data Continuously invest both human and financial capital to develop systems that help us make better investment decisions faster Conservative Balance Sheet Target leverage of <0.5x for normal course and ~1.0x in the event of a strategic transaction 7
Benefits of Non-Op Results & Guidance Executive Summary Strategy & Execution Appendix 8 Access Entire Upstream Universe The Granite Ridge “mousetrap” can quickly pivot to pursue high-quality near-term drilling inventory with the best risk adjusted returns across all basins and operators Leveraging Technology & Partners – Highly Scalable Rather than hire an ops team, we partner with the best operators in each basin and leverage our tech-enabled platform to manage significant asset growth with a minimal increase in overhead Infinite Divisibility = Opportunistic Growth or Exit Non-operated interests can be sold, promoted or purchased quickly allowing us to grow, lock-in returns or shed obligations to better align with our strategic objectives & stockholder returns Quick to Adapt Non-op strategies avoid long-term contracts and quickly adapt to technological advances, hydrocarbon pricing, cost trends, basin expansions, new plays, etc. Granite Ridge increases asset diversity and scales overhead by investing in a smaller piece of a larger number of high-graded wells drilled by proven public and private operators

All statements other than statements of historical facts included in this presentation regarding Granite Ridge’s 2023 outlook, dividend plans and practices, financial position, operating and financial performance, business strategy, plans and objectives of management for future operations, industry conditions, and indebtedness covenant compliance are forward-looking statements. When used in this release, forward-looking statements are generally accompanied by terms or phrases such as “estimate,” “project,” “predict,” “believe,” “expect,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “target,” “could,” “plan,” “intend,” “seek,” “goal,” “will,” “should,” “may” or other words and similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. Items contemplating or making assumptions about actual or potential future production and sales, market size, collaborations, and trends or operating results also constitute such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and important factors (many of which are beyond Granite Ridge’s control) that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements, including the following: the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the business combination, Granite Ridge’s financial performance following the business combination, changes in Granite Ridge’s strategy, future operations, financial position, hedging positions, estimated revenues and losses, projected costs and cash flows, prospects and plans, changes in current or future commodity prices and interest rates, supply chain disruptions, infrastructure constraints and related factors affecting our properties, ability to acquire additional development opportunities or make acquisitions, changes in reserves estimates or the value thereof, operational risks including, but not limited to, the pace of drilling and completions activity on our properties, changes in the markets in which Granite Ridge competes, geopolitical risk and changes in applicable laws, legislation, or regulations, including those relating to environmental matters, cyber-related risks, the fact that reserve estimates depend on many assumptions that may turn out to be inaccurate and that any material inaccuracies in reserve estimates or underlying assumptions will materially affect the quantities and present value of the Granite Ridge’s reserves, the outcome of any known and unknown litigation and regulatory proceedings, legal and contractual limitations on the payment of dividends, limited liquidity and trading of Granite Ridge’s securities, acts of war or terrorism and market conditions and global, regulatory, technical, and economic factors beyond Granite Ridge’s control, including the potential adverse effects of the COVID 19 pandemic, or another major disease, affecting capital markets, general economic conditions, global supply chains and Granite Ridge’s business and operations, and increasing regulatory and investor emphasis on environmental, social and governance matters. Granite Ridge has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations and assumptions about future events. While management considers these expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond Granite Ridge’s control. Granite Ridge does not undertake any duty to update or revise any forward-looking statements, except as may be required by the federal securities laws. 30
Disclaimer INDUSTRY AND MARKET DATA The information, data and statistics contained herein are derived from various internal and external third-party sources. While Granite Ridge believes such third-party information is reliable, there can be no assurance as to the accuracy or completeness of the indicated information. Granite Ridge has not independently verified the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by third party sources. No representation is made by Granite Ridge’s management as to the reasonableness of the assumptions made within or the accuracy or completeness of any projections or modeling or any other information contained herein. Any information, data or statistics on past performance or modeling contained herein is not an indication as to the future performance. Granite Ridge assumes no obligation to update the information in this presentation. RESERVE INFORMATION Reserve engineering is a process of estimating underground accumulations of hydrocarbons that cannot be measured in an exact way. The accuracy of any reserve estimate depends on the quality of available data, the interpretation of such data, and price and cost assumptions made by reserve engineers. In addition, the results of drilling testing and production activities may justify revisions of estimates that were made previously. If significant, such revisions could impact Granite Ridge’s strategy and change the schedule of any further production and development drilling. Accordingly, reserve estimates may differ significantly from the quantities of oil and natural gas that are ultimately recovered. Estimated Ultimate Recoveries, or “EURs,” refer to estimates of the sum of total gross remaining proved reserves per well as of a given date and cumulative production prior to such given date for developed wells. These quantities do not necessarily constitute or represent reserves as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and are not intended to be representative of all anticipated future well results. This presentation contains volumes and PV-10 values of our proved reserves and unproved reserves. The SEC strictly prohibits companies from aggregating proved, probable and possible reserves in filings with the SEC due to the different levels of certainty associated with each reserve category. The SEC also prohibits companies from including resources that are not proved, probable or possible reserves in filings with the SEC. Investors should be cautioned that estimates of volumes and PV-10 values of resources other than proved reserves are inherently more uncertain than comparable measures for proved reserves. Further, because estimated proved reserves and unproved resources have not been adjusted for risk due to this uncertainty of recovery, their summation may be of limited use. USE OF PROJECTIONS This investor presentation contains projections for Granite Ridge, including with respect to its EBITDA, net debt to EBITDA ratio, capital expenditures, cash flow, and net revenues as well as its production volumes. Granite Ridge’s independent auditors have not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the projections for the purpose of their inclusion in this investor presentation, and accordingly, have not expressed an opinion or provided any other form of assurance with respect thereto for the purpose of this investor presentation. These projections are for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied upon as being necessarily indicative of future results.
