12 Apr 16
With this publication we highlight various metrics and statistics forthcoming from yearend reserve books for our Domestic E&P coverage universe (Integrateds, Large Cap, Oilsands, Intermediate, Mid Cap, and Small Cap).

Posts 2015 Year-End Results
24 Mar 16
The Company’s 4Q15e production figure was ~5% behind our forecast however cash flow was 7% ahead on higher realized pricing and lower production costs. Boulder’s 2P reserves were largely flat since being spun out of DeeThree Exploration in May 2015, however 1P and PDP reserves were up 5% and 3% respectively. F&D costs over this period came in at $18.18/boe 2P and $18.90/boe 1P. The Company remains on track to close its previously announced going-private transaction with ARC Financial on or before April 15th. Recall, the all-cash bid was $2.59 per share, which we have since adopted as our target price.
Acquired for $268 mm in Going Private Agreement with ARC Financial
26 Feb 16
Boulder Energy has entered into a plan of arrangement with ARC Financial Corp. whereby the Company will be taken private for an all-cash consideration of $2.59 per share. Inclusive of $143 mm of debt, the deal is valued at $268 mm which implies compelling take-out metrics, particularly in light of where current commodity prices stand today. With our view this represents an attractive acquisition price that is unlikely to be topped, we have aligned our target price with the proposed cash bid of $2.59 per share while transitioning our ranking to Tender.
Intermediate/Mid/Small Cap Commodity Price Update Impact
08 Feb 16
With this publication we highlight forecast revisions associated with our crude oil commodity price update. Concurrent within a dynamic time for E&Ps, some of which have already begun the process of 2016 capital budget downdrafts, revised estimates attempt to directionally capture a shift towards capital conservation, though severely weakened futures curves have influenced our thinking for the better part of 6 months anyway. We expect further capital investment reductions forthcoming from E&Ps in the coming weeks.
Boulder Energy Provides 2016 Capital Spending and Production Guidance
18 Dec 15
Boulder Energy’s 2016 capital program includes spending of $26 - $28 mm and annual average production of 5,500 boe/d, which is below our prior forecast made following receipt of the Company’s 3Q15 actual results in early November. This conservative capital budget will aim to keep volumes flat from current levels by focusing efforts on early stage EOR projects while engaging in a 6 well drilling program across its Belly River asset.
The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.

Sound Energy is an AIM-listed upstream gas company
27 Feb 17
Sound Energy is an AIM-listed upstream gas company with a balanced exploration and appraisal portfolio focussed on three strategic assets in onshore Morocco and Italy. The share price has trebled in the past year, following drilling success in the Tendrara licence of eastern Morocco. The work program of the next 12-18 months has the potential to de-risk additional gas resources in Morocco and Italy, providing short-term catalysts for further upside in the share price. However, any disappointing drilling results might leave the stock rather exposed given recent momentum and lack of certified reserves, although we recognise that the optionality in the portfolio would remain substantial.
Opuama production restarts
21 Feb 17
Eland has confirmed the successful restart of exports from OML 40 through the new shipping alternative that it has implemented. Sales from the export terminal are expected imminently, re-establishing cash generation for Eland. Cash at YE16 was US$11.1m which has since reduced to US$5.9m, mainly reflecting initial operating expenses for the shipping alternative. While it is early days, Eland has demonstrated its ability to restart exports and production from OML 40 following the shut-down of the Forcados terminal a year ago. Production to date is averaging around 7kbd and we expect that to ramp up as Opuama operational performance improves. At US$55/bbl Brent, we estimate Eland is generating a net cash margin of around US$25/bbl. We reiterate our Buy recommendation and 95p per share Target Price.
