Arrow Exploration (AXL LN/CN) C; Target price of A$0.50 per share: Good well results in Colombia – The RCE-3 well flowed naturally at rates equivalent to 2,000 bbl/d gross for four hours after unloading kill fluid. Over the last 24 hours, the well has produced at a rate of 968 bbl/d with 0% water cut. This is a very good result and compares with expectations of 600-800 bbl/d. The fact there is no water being produced at that the well i

Softening market environment, inventory effects, and operational issues hamstrung the operating results in the chemicals business, dropping 73% in Q4 FY2022 on a quarterly basis. The record annual profits and operating cash flow, however, enabled OMV to announce a record high dividend in the company’s history to maintain investor confidence and benefit from the all-time-high results. After a turbulent year, FY2023 should stage another similar show across businesses.

Arrow Exploration (AXL LN)C: Target price of £0.45 per share: On track for a very busy 2023 – Arrow is about to embark on a 10 well drilling programme that could add between 2,800 and 4,800 boe/d net production (before decline and in a success case) to the existing constrained production base of ~1,800 boe/d. Over January, production was ~1,800 boe/d with short term outages due to weather at Ombu and Pepper. This compares with produc

Calima Energy (CE1 AU)C: Target price of A$0.60 per share: New wells deliver flow rates above expectations – The three new Sunburst wells (Gemini #10, #11 and #12) drilled in 4Q22 are now on production and on average are achieving IP30 rates 35% higher than forecast. The three wells are currently producing 420 boe/d gross (370 boe/d net). This compares with IP30 production of 120 boe/d gross for a type well. The Pisces #6 and #7 wells

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s acquisition of Mubadala Investment’s 24.9% stake in OMV could bring valuable opportunities for OMV as the two companies have benefited from joint investments in chemicals as well as upstream oil and gas production and have common goals to expand valuable chemicals investments.
OMV delivered two positive surprises in the Q3: a good consensus beat and an attractive special dividend of €2.25 per share for the 2022 financial year to close the pay-out gap with its peers. We expect this generous dividend policy to protect the shares from downside pressure. However for the stock to remain attractive for next year, a margin improvement will be key.
ADX Energy (ADX AU) C; Target price of A$0.060 per share: Good production rate at Anshof. Busy months ahead – Commercial production at Anshof-3 has started at a stable rate of 100 bbl/d (80 bbl/d net to ADX). This increases overall production by approximately 30% to >350 boe/d. The well is producing above expectations but is constrained by trucking and storage capacity. Production from Anshof-3 could increase in the future (the well wa

Arrow Exploration (AXL LN/CN) C; Target price of £0.45 per share: Gearing up for a busy programme – Current production is ~1,500 boe/d (in line with expectations). Gross production at RCE-2 is holding up very well with no decline since August (October: 1,100 bbl/d, August: 1,080 bbl/d). Gross production from RCS-1 stands at 340 bbl/d (380 bbl/d in August). A work-over rig is expected to arrive at the RCE field by the end of this week.

While incidents and maintenance hit the refining segments hard in Q3, chemical margins suffered from mounting recession concerns and falling demand. Looking ahead, there could be a silver lining for the refining business in Q4, but hardly for chemicals. E&P remains a solid profit maker, but this could change in H2 FY2023 were recession to trigger a major drop in oil and gas prices
Calima Energy (CE1 AU)C; Target price of A$0.70 per share: No surprise in the 2Q22 update – 2Q22 production was 3,839 boe/d. While this is lower that the initial guidance provided by the company, this is higher than we expected (3.7 mboe/d) following the announcement in early July of low production in June due to unexpected weather and maintenance issues. As announced in early July, production is back to 4.1 mboe/d. 3Q22 production gui

Good results, above consensus, despite the deconsolidation of Russia and low refining throughput. A positive surprise was Gas & Power Eastern Europe, with an adj. EBIT of €167m vs €14m last year, thanks to high gas and power prices (Romania).
In Exploration & Production, adj. EBIT of €2bn, 70% of OMV’s results, -9% qoq, due to lower production (-25% qoq, 345 kboed), as Russia is now out and offset by higher realization prices (oil +18% qoq, gas +49% qoq).

Calima Energy (CE1 AU)C; Target price of A$0.70: Production expected to bounce back in 3Q22 – June production was impacted by the gas processor’s scheduled plant turn-around in Thorsby that resulted in production being reduced by 625 boe/d for seven days. This work was anticipated and is included in the company’s budget and production guidance. At Brooks, the gas compressor at the 2-29 battery went down on 24 June. The compressor was r

The results were above consensus with an adj. EBIT of €2.66bn (+33% qoq) and driven by higher oil & gas prices. The adj. net income was flat qoq at €1bn, on a higher tax rate (46% vs 36% in Q4) and explained by the higher earnings in upstream. Russia is no longer consolidated, which we view as positive as it will allow the market to look at OMV’s strong fundamentals ex-Yuzhno Russkoye.
ADX Energy (ADX AU)C; Target price of A$0.060 per share: Flow rate at the top end of expectations at important appraisal well - The Anshof-3 well flowed ~75 bbl/d of light oil (and no water) on test from the Eocene reservoir. This has positive implications for production, reserves and the upside case. The flow rate was at the upper end of expectations (40-80 bbl/d). The well has not been acidized yet which could boost production rate b

Looking at E&P Free Cash Flow - While companies still carry hedges contracted at lower prices, we estimate our producer universe will generate ~25% FCF yield (defined as FCF/EV) in 2022 at ~US$100/bbl. At just US$70/bbl, the overall FCF yield is estimated at 15% for 2023 and >20% for 2024. Assuming US$110/bbl, this increases further to ~40% for each of 2023 and 2024.

Ongoing strong production from Wressle. Union Jack has released an update on revenues from its Wressle field (Union Jack 40%).

New interim dividend of 0.3p. Union Jack has announced an interim dividend of 0.3p/share. This follows the 0.8p/share paid in 2022, and is enabled by the ongoing cash flows being generated from the company's Wressle development. Union Jack's share buyback programme also continues, with 2,825k shares repurchased so far (out of a potential up to 11.3m).
The inherent low-cost structure of CAML’s Kounrad and Sasa operations shone through in 2022 as the group delivered a very stable financial performance in the face of significant macro-economic headwinds. Neither operation was fully immune to global inflationary pressures, but they nonetheless drove EBITDA and free cash flow (FCF) generation to an impressive $132m (a margin of 57%) and $90m respectively, only a little below 2021 levels despite the macro challenges.

We are updating our fair value estimate to reflect more conservative oil and gas price assumptions. We have lowered our 2023 WTI oil price estimate to $74.05/b from $83.10/b, to align our estimates with market dynamics. We have lowered our US benchmark (Henry Hub) natural gas price for 2023 to $3.02/mmbtu from $3.36/mmbtu, which reflects the most recent price forecast made by US EIA Short Term Energy Outlook. As a result, we are lowering our fair value estimate for i3 Energy to 26.2p from 31.6p
