Reports Second Quarter Results, Further Expansion of Inga/ Fireweed Montney Footprint
11 Aug 16
Kelt released second quarter financial and operating results that exceeded our cash generation expectations. The Company will reallocate capital back to Alberta now that Alberta MRF royalty considerations accommodate renewed activity immediately, though resultant deliverability will not largely materialize until 2017e. A lower cost development premise should materialize in 2017e with a drilling program oriented towards penetrations on existing pads at that time. Our 12-month target price is elevated to $6.75/sh on receipt of this report and subsequent adjustments to our forward estimates to preserve our prior 12-month 2017e EV/DACF target multiple. We continue to rank the stock as an Outperform.
2Q16e Quarterly Preview
26 Jul 16
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.
ANNOUNCES REVISED BORROWING BASE OF $185 MM
02 Jun 16
Impact: Neutral. The Company's reduced credit facility is within our expectations based on current commodity prices. Kelt is currently drawn 63% on the revised amount and we estimate the Company exiting 2016 with bank debt plus working capital deficiency of $143 mm reflecting ~77% of the facility.
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.
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.

E&P projects ramp-up and disposals to support 2017
20 Feb 17
After the publication of the annual results, we have updated our model and highlight the key points. Q4 16 key highlights As a reminder, the company reported results of $1.8bn, $0.5bn below expectations for Q4 16. One-offs were $763m for the quarter mainly driven by the integrated gas division related to the weakening Australian dollar and the deferred tax position in Malaysia. By division: 1) Integrated gas’s clean earnings came in at $907m, down 27% yoy. The decrease is driven by the step-up in depreciation resulting from the BG acquisition and the increase associated with the start-up of Gorgon. Other items related to the BG Group consolidation impacted the division. The impact of higher oil prices was more than offset by the decline in LNG prices. Q4 16 production was 908kbpd, up from 633kbpd a year ago thanks to the integration of BG. For the full year, the integrated gas division reported $3.7bn of clean earnings, -27% compared to the previous year. 2) The upstream division showed a small profit of $54m, compared to a loss of $1bn a year earlier. Higher oil prices and increased volumes thanks to the BG integration supported the results driven by an improved operational performance. For the full year, the upstream division reported a loss of $2.7bn compared to a loss of $2.25bn in 2015. 3) Downstream’s earnings came in 12% lower yoy to $1.34bn, impacted by lower trading and refining margin and higher taxation. The results are split between oil products ($823m, down 39% yoy) and chemicals ($516m, up 184%). In oil products, refining trading came in at $77m, down from $771m a year ago. Marketing came in at $746m compared to $631m a year ago on lower operating expenses. Chemicals came in higher on stronger industry conditions driven by the tight supply in Asia and an improved operating performance. For the full year, the results came in at $7.2bn, down 26% yoy. Cash flow position Cash flow from operating activities for Q4 16 was $9.2bn, capex $6.9bn, the dividend $2.3bn, and disposals of $2.7bn which helped to reduce debt to $73bn. Gearing at the end of 2016 was 28%. The dividend was $0.47. The company is close to selling assets for $5bn, which is good news as the group still has to sell $20bn to remain on track with its deleveraging. Capex totalled $26.9bn for the full year 2016, lower than expected and it plans to reduce this in 2017 to $25bn, in the low end of the 2017-20 range of $25-$30bn. The CEO highlighted: “Production and LNG volumes included delivery from new projects, with the ramp-up continuing in 2017 and 2018. Meanwhile the company operates at an underlying cost level that is $10bn lower than Shell’s and BG’s combined only 24 months ago. Shell is gaining momentum on divestments, with some $15bn completed in 2016, announced, or in progress, and we are on track to complete our overall $30bn divestment programme as planned. Strategy is starting to pay off and in 2017 we will be investing around $25bn in high quality, resilient projects. I’m confident 2017 will be another year of progress for Shell to become a world-class investment”
