Tamarack Valley reported 2Q19 results which were largely in line with consensus, with production, FFOPS, and capital expenditures reported at 24,090 boe/d, $0.26/sh, and $30.7 mm, respectively, as the company continued to be subject to the ongoing Alberta mandated production curtailments. There was no change to the company’s 2019 guidance, with capital investment of $170-$180 mm still expected to generate production of 23,500-24,500 boe/d and FCF in the realm of $40-$50 mm.
Companies: Tamarack Valley Energy Ltd.
With continued well outperformance in all core areas, production over the last four weeks has crested 25,000 boe/d. Annual and exit 2018e guidance ranges have increased by 500 boe/d to 24,000-24,500 boe/d and 24,500-25,000 boe/d respectively. The capital budget is left unaltered at $223mm - $233 mm. Similarly in 2019e, preliminary guidance grows to 25,500-26,500 boe/d (previously 25,000-26,000 boe/d) and spawns from an unchanged capital program of $222 mm. Tamarack Valley will be added to the TSX Composite Index effective September 24th, 2018.
Production in 2Q18 came in at 23,853 boe/d which was slightly ahead of GMP FE , consensus and company forecasts. Strong cash flow of $61.0 mm or $0.26/sh was 3% ahead of the GMP FE estimate and 8% better than the “street”. Field activity was busier than expected with expenditures of $52.7 mm (vs our $35 mm outlook), however even when paired with $8.4 mm of share buy backs, cash flow sufficiently covered the cash outlay in 2Q. 2018 guidance is being increased to 23,500-24,000 boe/d on strong 1H18 volumes while 2019e capital ($28 mm) is being accelerated into 2018e, which should facilitate continued growth momentum going into next year.
Production in 1Q18 came in at 23,532 boe/d which was slightly ahead of GMP FE, consensus and company forecasts. This was ideally achieved from a capital outlay of ~$72 mm, which was 10% lower than we were forecasting. Strong cash flow of $58.5 mm or $0.25/sh was 10% ahead of GMP FE and street estimates of ~$53 mm or $0.23/sh. Volume growth and lower costs continued to be expected in 2H18 with the 10,000 bbl/d Veteran battery expansion complete and the reactivation of an operated gas plant by the end of 2Q18.
Despite 4Q17 production being pre-released, the company’s cash flow of $57.6 mm or $0.25/sh handily topped consensus estimates of $0.20/sh and our expectation of $0.22/sh. All delivered through capital expenditures that were more than 20% lower than anticipated. The winter drilling program has been completed ahead of schedule and has led to January/February average volumes of 22,800 boe/d, with 20 more wells to bring onstream. Key to its 1H18 outlook is the corporate liquids contributions increasing to 64-66% (up from 62% in 4Q17). Reserve results were as expected and highlighted by F&D costs that imply recycle ratios of 1.4x-1.6x from year-end bookings we continue to view as conservative. A crude oil takeaway agreement for its Alberta Viking oil production, where dedicating 4,000 bbl/d towards Gibson’s 120 km Provost pipeline project, will save it $1.45/boe in operating costs at Veteran.
Tamarack Valley reported production of 20,541 boe/d for 3Q17, in line with consensus expectations; however, a busy third quarter has boosted volumes to 22,000 boe/d, framing the early achievement of 2017e exit guidance.
Cash flow of $34.8 mm or $0.15/sh topped our outlook of $0.13/sh, but remained in line with consensus expectations.
With forecasted cash flow on the rise, management is accelerating a fraction of its 2018e capital program into 2017e, with increased guidance ranging from $195 to $198 mm (previously $165 to $180 mm), inclusive of ~$9.0 mm of tuck in acquisitions.
The company’s credit facility will be increased to $290 mm (from $265 mm) by the end of 2017.
Tamarack’s 2Q16 financial results featured production (pre-released) and capital spending in line with forecasts, with corresponding cash flow that was meaningfully ahead of expectations underpinned by corporate initiatives to reduce operating costs. As a result, the Company’s balance sheet was stronger than anticipated exiting the period, with net debt levels equivalent to a 0.9x run-rate cash flow, or 0.5x its recently reduced $120 mm credit facility (down from $165 mm prior). Our forward view is virtually unchanged as is our 12-month target price of $5.00 per share and Outperform recommendation. We continue to like this name, noting the Company remains in a position of strength through the current downturn, thus being able to continue to capitalize on accretive acquisition opportunities that may arise, while also remaining well positioned to accelerate growth into an improving commodity price environment.
Impact: Positive. Tamarack's 2Q16 financial results featured production (pre-released) and capital spending that were in-line with forecasts, with corresponding cash flow that was ahead of ours and consensus estimates in the period underpinned by initiatives to reduce operating costs in combination with stronger pricing and lower royalty expenses.
Some Recovery on Segmented Cash Flow Generation Over Q1 Though Still Down 56% Y/Y. In aggregate, the Intermediate, Mid, and Small Cap groups are expected to generate 2Q16e cash flow of $1,281 mm, $183 mm, and $53 mm, or $1.517 billion in total, that while depressed relative to the same period last year (~$2.647 billion combined), is up 17% sequentially from the prior quarter, largely on the strength of crude oil price recovery in the period. Severely weak natural gas pricing picture markedly reversed into summer, market likely to ignore financials for natural gas producers and look ahead to winter and formalization of sell-side 2018e estimates in coming months. Spot AECO natural gas prices recently crested C$2.60/mcf, and with a reasonable alignment of previously distressed NE BC Stn2 differentials, augmented by a withdrawal expected next week, view the market psyche as constructive and looking ahead, with the analogy that this market is shaping up to mirror 2012 still holding. That said, with crude oil poised to retest support levels, combined with strong stock price performance broadly observed YTD, we would characterize sentiment as slightly pessimistic in the near-term which could reduce or unwind momentum-based investment strategies that have worked thus far in 2016.

Coming off restriction from our participation in the Company’s latest $81.6 mm equity financing, we update our estimates.Concurrent with the financing, Tamarack announced two strategic acquisitions, further expanding its footprint in the Redwater/Wilson Creek areas, while adding a new core area at Penny in southern Alberta.In light of the acquisitions, Management has put forth updated 2016e guidance factoring in a modest bump to both E&D spending and production volumes given a partial year contribution from the new assets.We have updated our forecast for the acquisitions along with our latest commodity price deck update, leading to a revised target price of $5.00 per share, with implied returns continuing to be supportive of our Outperform ranking.
Tamarack’s first quarter results were in line with expectations, falling within Management’s previously announced guidance for 1H16, with production tracking towards the high end of the range.
slightly positive with the quarterly results largely in line with expectations, while results to date look strong relative to Management's guidance. In addition, first quarter activity included key infrastructure initiatives along with additional tuck-in acquisitions, both of which will set the Company up to continue to create long-term value for shareholders

Parkmead’s portfolio has evolved to the point where it is now a full-cycle E&P company with a low-cost Dutch production base and a broad spectrum of high-quality UK growth opportunities, encompassing material development projects and an attractive range of risk/reward exploration. Recently, it has diversified into renewables, future proofing its equity story and opening up a new ‘investor-friendly’ avenue of growth. A core strength of this management team is its commercial acumen and portfolio-driven approach to optimising value. Parkmead has been in portfolio construction mode to date but is now well positioned to start crystallising its intrinsic value. We initiate with a risked-NAV based price target of 155p/sh. Investors would do well to get on-board with a management team that has a strong track record of delivering shareholder value.

Panoro Energy (PEN NO)c; Target price of NOK23.00: Revisiting Gabon - BW Energy provided an update on Dussafu with FY20 production guidance expectation marginally below previous guidance (14.25 mbbl/d versus 15 16 mbbl/d) due to COVID-19 restrictions and OPEC+ quotas. This results in FY20 opex expected to be US$19/bbl which is slightly above the previous guidance of US$17-18/bbl. The drilling of DTM-7H, and the tie-in of DTM-6H and -7H, has been deferred to mid-2021 with first oil expected in 3Q21 and our estimate of the timing of the field production ramp-up has been delayed by one quarter. BWE continues to expect production from the Dussafu area to reach >30 mbbl/d in 2023 and ~40 mbbl/d in 2024. The Hibiscus development is expected to offer 15% IRR at

• In an Important development, PetroTal has signed a contract with an international oil trader for a pilot shipment to export 0.12 mmbbl into the Atlantic region using the Amazon river through Brazil. The shipment will be sold FOB Bretana, priced at the forward month Brent ICE price, and paid within two weeks of loading at Bretana. There are no subsequent oil price adjustments.
• At November 19, 2020, PetroTal had cash resources of US$9.8 mm, with accounts payable and accrued liabilities of ~US$39 mm, a reduction of ~US$11 mm from the end of 2Q20. The company has been paid US$5.5 mm for delivery of 0.192 mm bbl of oil to Petroperu in October. Production is constrained to ~5,000 bbl/d pending the reopening of the export pipeline.
• We understand that the pilot should start in December. This would not only provide ~US$5 mm in cash to PetroTal but also allow production to return to recent levels (11.5 mbbl/d), effectively unlocking the fundamental value of the asset.
Balance sheet considerations
The potential financial derivative liability has been reduced from US$22.5 mm at the end of June to US$17 mm at the end of September. Of the US$39 mm current payables 46% are not due before 2021 and we note that the company still holds US$13 mm in account receivables and US$4.7 mm in inventory.
Financials on “a back to normal” scenario with flat production
We are now assuming production remains constrained at 5 mbbl/d over 4Q20 with minimum capex with cashflow and receivables being used to repay the due payables over the period.
On production of just ~11.5 mbbl/d during 2021, we estimate operating cashflow of US$85 mm at US$48/bbl Brent. This would result in free cashflow of >US$40 mm assuming capex of US$20 mm to maintain production and US$20 mm to repay the remaining payables. This compares with a current market cap of just US$75 mm, suggesting FY21 free cashflow would represent over 50% of the current market cap in a no growth scenario assuming production can be exported.
Our target price of £0.45 per share represents 6x the current share price.

Pantheon announced that is has contracted a rig to drill the Talitha well and that drilling operations are expected to commence in January 2021. The well will target four independent reservoirs, in three separate trapping sequences, which the company estimates has the potential to contain in the region of a billion barrels of recoverable oil, although ongoing work is required to formally delineate the full potential of the targets.

The Prime Minister vowed last week to “restore Britain's position as the foremost naval power in Europe” and promised an extra £16.5bn in defence spending over the next four years. Mr Johnson expects this investment to “spur a renaissance of British shipbuilding across the UK”, and specifically mentioned five locations where this would occur, including Belfast and Appledore – the location of InfraStrata's shipyards. Other supportive policy initiatives emanating from the government include Mr Johnson's pledge in October that offshore wind will power every home in the country by 2030. We believe this demonstrable support from the highest level of government vindicates InfraStrata's strategy, and demonstrates the significant opportunities available to the company as it bids on numerous shipbuilding and fabrication contracts. We reaffirm our Buy rating.

Jersey Oil & Gas announced today that is has entered into an agreement to acquire the entire share capital of CIECO V&C (UK) Limited, which is currently owned by two international entities headquartered in Japan. The acquisition secures an additional 12% working interest in Licence P2170 (Blocks 20/5b & 21/1d), which provides Jersey Oil & Gas with 100% of the licence. The licence contains the majority of the Verbier oil discovery in addition to three drill ready prospects: Verbier Deep, Wengen and Cortina. The acquired entity has approximately £15M of tax losses which will provide value to Jersey Oil & Gas. Consideration will consist of £150k in cash and contingent payments of i) £1.5M upon field development plan approval of Verbier within P2170 (as already discovered) by the OGA ii) £1.0M upon the 1st anniversary of attainment of first oil. The acquisition is conditional on OGA approval amongst other technicalities, which we do not anticipate will be problematic. The acquired entity will be free of debts.

Oil rose to the highest in nearly three months with positive Covid-19 vaccine developments paving the way for a more sustained recovery in oil demand.
Futures rose 5% in New York this week for a third straight weekly gain as Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE requested emergency authorisation of their Covid vaccine Friday. Moderna Inc also released positive interim results from a final-stage trial and said it is close to seeking emergency authorisation. Still, further gains were limited by broader market declines amid a dispute between the White House and the Federal Reserve over emergency lending programmes.
Even with vaccines on the horizon, a recovery in oil demand faces obstacles with governments under pressure to tighten restrictions and curb the spread of the virus. UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson's officials are considering tougher pandemic rules placed on broader regions of England next month after a national lockdown is set to end and the country returns to its tiered system. Meanwhile, the shift toward working from home may have a lasting chill on gasoline demand, according to Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City President Esther George.
The recent climb in headline prices has been accompanied by significant moves in timespreads, where traders bet on the price of oil in different months. The spread between West Texas Intermediate for December 2021 delivery and the following month moved to backwardation, while the closely watched gap between December 2021 and 2022 WTI contracts is close to also flipping.
West Texas Intermediate for December delivery, which expired Friday, rose 41 cents to settle at $42.15 a barrel.
The January contract rose 52 cents to end the session at $42.42 a barrel.
Brent for January settlement gained 76 cents to $44.96 a barrel. The contract rose 5.1% this week.
Pfizer and BioNTech's vaccine could be the first to be cleared for use, but first it must undergo a thorough vetting. The filing could enable its use by the middle to the end of December, the companies said in a statement. Yet, it could take at least three weeks for a US Food and Drug Administration decision.

Savannah’s acquisition of a key strategic Nigerian gas asset with strong growth potential has been ignored by the market. Its significant exploration success in Niger has also gone unrewarded. Delivery of the strong free cash flow potential these assets offer will re-rate the shares, which are materially undervalued. Management’s tenacity in getting the Seven Energy acquisition across the line alongside the impressive early progress with the acquired assets should give investors confidence. We initiate with a Buy rating and risked-NAV based price target of 49p/sh.

Trifast has reported FY21 interim results that highlight the tough operating conditions with material falls in revenue, and operating leverage driving sharp reductions in profitability.

The idea is to show how Tullow’s existing assets can generate sufficient cash for the next decade. Discipline is key, with deleveraging as top priority. Spending is on a tight budget ($2.7bn for the next ten years) with 90% of it going to develop the West African assets. The quest to regain investors’ trust continues.
