liquid millionaire: Terra Energy was established in February 2008 and will be renamed Fastnet Oil & Gas following a reverse takeover of AIM shell Sterling Green Group plc [SGG] Fastnet Oil & Gas is a new junior explorer established by the directors of Cove Energy plc to initially focus on the Celtic Sea and longer term East and North Africa where the Directors and Advisory Board have significant experience. The Advisory Board and Board will include key members of the Cove Energy team: John Craven - Advisory Board (CEO of Cove Energy); Stephen Staley - CEO (NED of Cove) and Michael Nolan - NED (FD of Cove). The company's existing assets include small interests in the Celtic Sea and applications have been lodged for three highly prospective licensing options also in the Celtic Sea. The Directors expect these licences to be approved after Admission on AIM (and the ESM in Ireland). The issue is well over subscibed and likely to go absolutely mental on AIM This is obviously really great news for LEG who are founder shareholders in Terra Energy aka Fastnet Oil & Gas. Watch LEG make new highs next month or even better buy now and enjoy the major re-rating in the LEG share price. My short term share price target for LEG is 0.5p

mattoil: New Analysis on Wentworth Resources, with quite high price target! ABG Sundal Collier Wentworth Resources (WRL.OL) – Research Report Recommendation: BUY (unchanged) Share price: USD 1.5 Target price: USD 3.7 (2.9) Riding the East African gas play In our view, Wentworth Resources (WRL) is one of the few pure gas play investments that can be made in the new emerging gas hot spot that East Africa has become. With a 34% discount to underlying values and an estimated exploration potential worth three times the current market cap, the risk vs. reward appears highly favourable at the moment. The company is currently drilling its first exploration well which could boost the valuation by as much as NOK ~30 per share in an area surrounded by world class gas discoveries. We have raised our target price to USD 3.7 (NOK 23 per share) and reiterate our BUY recommendation. Restructuring done –rewards likely Small cap gas case coming to an end – after extensive restructuring, WRL has transformed itself into a company that is set to grow by what we estimate to be NOK 34 per share in terms of value over the next 12 months. With minimal debt and USD ~40m in cash currently on its balance sheet, the company looks to be fully funded for its planned activities in 2012 and 2013. Triggers in line to increase valuation substantially – gas reserves proven to the company currently stand at 213 Bcf. With the current drilling programme, the company is targeting up to 700 Bcf, which could increase our valuation by NOK 30 per share. The drilling of its first well is underway; we expect news flow in the next 2-3 weeks. Located in East Africa – the current asset base consists of acreage and producing fields in Tanzania and Mozambique. The region has seen a drastic surge in large gas discoveries of late with volumes close to 60 Tcf in total discovered volumes offshore Tanzania and Mozambique. Valuation Following the company's recent asset swap with Cove Energy and the divestment of its power plant in Tanzania, we have raised our target price to USD 3.7 (2.9) or NOK 23 per share. Due to the company's restructuring, our 2012e-'13e estimates have significantly changed as assets have been sold or swapped during the past few months. Risks The main risk to our BUY case is that the first exploration well in Tanzania, which is currently underway, is dry. Analysts Anders Holte, anders.holte@abgsc.no, +47 22 01 61 39, Oslo Office

xenawarriorprincess: View from The Times today - "February 23 2012 12:00AM East Africa has become the most sought-after oil exploration area in the world as Shell prepares to expand its footprint there with a £1 billion takeover of Cove Energy. Cove's management has recommended the 195p-a-share cash offer and shareholders are expected to rubber-stamp the deal. Michael Blaha, the chairman, and John Craven, the chief executive, have made no secret of their desire to sell and stand to net more than £30 million from the deal. Other oil majors, including ExxonMobil, are circling Cove, which focuses on Mozambique, but analysts do not expect them to enter a bidding war. Korean, Chinese or Indian national oil companies could, however, enter the fray. Shell's £992 million bid is more than a 70 per cent premium to Cove's closing share price on January 4 when it announced plans to sell itself. Cove's main asset is an 8.5 per cent stake in the Rovuma Offshore Area 1, in Mozambique, where Anadarko has found 30 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, more than three times the North Sea's remaining reserves. The Italian energy group ENI has also made two large discoveries near by. Cove's shares closed up 25.5 per cent at 194p, just below the offer price, suggesting that the market expects the deal to go ahead. Shell has exploration acreage in Tanzania but none in Mozambique or Kenya, where Cove also has interests. Shell said there was "significant potential" to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) from recent gas discoveries off Mozambique, and from new exploration positions in East Africa. It would require billions of pounds to develop the fields and build LNG terminals to ship the gas to Asia where demand is booming. Shell, which ships more LNG than any other international oil major, is keen to maintain its position. Interest in East Africa from big oil groups has grown hugely as the region had been mainly occupied by independent explorers such as Cove, which do not have the funds to develop finds. Cove's takeover, which is conditional on consent from the Mozambique Government, will heighten interest around Ophir Energy. The Tanzania-focused explorer, listed in London last summer, is evaluating its prospects. Its shares closed up 7.25 per cent at 392p yesterday."

utrecht_00: Hi Rus, well its a great presentation and story, so having been through it here are the things which stick out to me. 1. Page 5 the highest value on the chart i.e relative value add to capital investment is the phase we are in right now appraisal. Given the company's stated aim of monetisation, you would think anytime now until the end of appraisal in 2013 is the time to sell up. I note an RBS analyst yesterday who said "We would point out that the shares have been a relative outperformer in recent weeks. We attribute this to an expectation in the market of imminent positive drilling results from the ongoing Mozambique drilling campaign." So with some appraisal results due soon, we are probably in the early phase of where Cove may entertain an offer. 2. Page 8 Wind/Barq/lagosta more than 12TCF. So the company believes they have far more than the minimum amount which is worth 85p per share. They think they may have as much as 30TCF which is worth 200p to Cove. Either way add in the cash amount 20p per share and the Kenya (well who knows I'd love to know what Total paid to get in) but lets say its worth only 10p per share. So as clear as day the company is saying on a WORST case basis the share price is worth 115p, (and I've been conservative) and a best case 235p ish. Pick somewhere in between, add a premium and now you have what a predator may have to pay. This is backed up by then stating the NAV is north of $1 billion or 645mm pounds which equates to 115p- so our maths add up. 3. Page 13 and this is big but they are after OIL. Say no more for what that would do to the share price if found. 4. Page 22- fully funded until 2012. Comforting that no real dilution until then, but most likely non at all as they will have monetised their finds by then. In the notes they specifically mention limited downside to the share price All in all massively positive, news flow coming thick and fast and a more than underpinned share price which big potential. All in my humble opinion, dyor etc etc All views welcome. Hope that helps.

southern lad2: It's OK. I found it - see below; Citi has begun coverage of Africa-focused Cove Energy (LON:COV) with a "buy" rating and a target price of 130 pence (current price per share: 100.5 pence). "Cove Energy is our pure-play pick on East Africa where it is primarily exposed to the Mozambique gas story. Near-term newsflow will likely be focused on appraising these significant discoveries, but exploration activity picks up again in 4Q11 with the arrival of a second rig," said analyst Michael Alsford. In May this year, Cove said 2010 had been a remarkable year that saw "world class exploration successes", which transformed the assets it had acquired in 2009. Drilling at the Rovuma offshore area 1 in Mozambique had resulted in three major gas discoveries - Windjammer, Barquentine and Lagosta, it said. Contingent gas resources for the three discoveries have been estimated at 12 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas. "Despite the recent share price move, the shares are still around 12 percent off their highs and price in little "option value" for further exploration potential from Mozambique or Kenya nor the derisking of an LNG (liquefied natural gas) development. Our base NAV (net asset value) of 130p/share implies 34 percent upside," added analyst Alsford. Citi begins coverage of the stock with a "buy"/high risk rating. Meanwhile, Citi said that east Africa offered significant resource potential generally. "East Africaremains a relatively under-explored region in Africa, but following recent exploration success there are early indications that the region offers significant resource potential. "We expect accelerating activity levels in the region and believe East Africa could become one of the largest exploration plays in the next decade," it said. Citi added that it expected a pick-up in merger and acquisition activity with the large cap Oils and LNG players moving to obtain a strategic entry in the region and consolidate smaller players with large acreage positions.

sagem: come wake up news announcement and it looks very good indeed...commercial is the word....did market makers know about this yesterday and marked the share price down only to put it back to day where it was and we get no share price increase....comments please Cove Energy PLC Drilling Update RNS Number : 4075Y Cove Energy PLC 22 December 2010  22 December 2010 Cove Energy plc Drilling update Cove Energy plc ("the Company" or "Cove", AIM:COV), the East African oil and gas exploration company, announces that the Belford Dolphin drillship has arrived on location at the Tubarao well site. This follows cessation of operations on the Lagosta gas discovery which has been suspended to allow for future flow testing. As announced on 29th November the Lagosta well encountered over 550 feet of natural gas pay in Oligocene and Upper Eocene high quality sands. John Craven, CEO of Cove Energy said: "We are very pleased with the major success at Lagosta which found substantial gas pays in the main Oligocene and Upper Eocene objectives. "The significance of this discovery means that the partnership can now confidently proceed to advance commercialisation options - particularly as the operator believes that the three gas discoveries already made, Windjammer, Barquentine and Lagosta, exceed the resource size threshold to support a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) development in our extensive 2.6 million acre block, offshore Mozambique. "Cove is excited by the continuous exploration and appraisal programme planned for 2011 and beyond. Drilling operations at the Tubarao well are expected to take 6 to 8 weeks and we look forward to announcing results from that well as and when appropriate." - Ends -

shutittrev: Another article reproduced from MichaelWalters.com ,with his kind permission. He tipped this at around the 20p mark. The article was written on 30/11/10. Well worth my subscription fee. Enjoy. Cove Hits Another Winner Cove Energy (COV) continues to hit winner after winner off the coast of East Africa. Each reduces the risk of future failure and raises the probability that Cove is sitting on massively valuable exploration prospects off the coast of Mozambique. The shares closed at a peak 99p, and have multiplied four-fold or better (depends on the timing) since featuring here in the summer of 2009. As ever, take profits if you wish. This market is unsettling, and there could be a dip at some stage. But it looks wrong to be out of this one for long, and the prospects of further sizeable gains are good. It looks as if operator Anadarko was so pleased that it rushed out the news that the Lagosta well in the Rovuma Basin, off Mozambique, has hit gas, the third gas find in three attempts. Drilling is not yet complete – they are at 13,850 feet and plan to go to 15,900 to evaluate a deeper zone – but already they have hit a total of more than 550 feet of natural gas pay in multiple high-quality Tertiary sands. This is big stuff, make no mistake. One or two brokers have added a few pence to their notional asset value of Cove shares (Cove has 8.5% of this), but that looks way too conservative. Such a show is equivalent to the find with Windjammer, the first well. We could be looking at an extra 6TCF (trillion cubic feet) of gas, not the puny one or two TCF suggested in some places. Look at the map, and see Lagosta sitting 16 miles to the south of Barquentine and not much further from Windjammer. There is a real possibility of a massive gas area stretching between the two, a possibility encouraged by the way relevant formations and depths are related. The latest find was in the Oligocene fan zone, and the previous finds at Barquentine and Windjammer were in the Oligocene. It will take another ten days or so for the current well to reach full target depth, deeper into the geology, penetrating the lower Eocene sands. There is some chance that there will be oil shows at that level, and there could be more gas. The lower Eocene is close to the lower Cretaceous area where there could be oil. So far, some brokers appear to be suggesting that there is a total of around 10TCF of gas in all three discoveries. That could be a significant under-estimate. Something in the region of 15TCF is already coming into view. It requires perhaps 5TCF to warrant the construction of a Liquefied natural gas plant, and these discoveries are well past that. Anadarko is talking about an emerging world-class natural gas province, and encouraging potential LNG plant construction. It is currently making presentations in London. After Lagosta, the Belford Dolphin drill ship will move 17.5 miles to the south-west to the Tubarao prospect. That is likely to spud (start drilling) around the third week in December, and there could be news in the third or fourth week of January. The real target will be the Eocene sands which are being confirmed as a promising new zone with the Rovuma Basin. And which could be oil-bearing. Though there has been confirmation through the Ironclad well (oil, but a poor quality reservoir which would not flow well) in August that there is oil in the area, it is a matter of locating it more precisely. Oil is more valuable than gas, and can be monetised more quickly. A significant oil discovery would send Cove rocketing. Assuming Tubarao is successful, the rig is likely to move to the Baracuda prospects. That is further south, close to the Collier (capped in April without a clear result because of safety issues) and Ironclad, with hopes of finding oil. Then there are likely to be appraisal wells and additional 3D seismic to help locate new targets. An oil find would probably accelerate everything, and additional drilling rigs would be brought into the area. All of this underlines the busy and exciting programme ahead of Cove shareholders. The company raised an additional £110m early in November by placing 144m shares at 76p. That attracted strong institutional support, and means Cove has cash enough to sit alongside operator Anadarko and finance a share of any developments well into 2012. Chief executive John Craven has executed a textbook play on how to build an oil company at breath-taking place. He raised cash quickly to buy assets when the market was depressed. Those assets proved highly productive, and Cove has raised further tranches of cash to stay in the game as the discoveries have rolled in and the share price has risen. Along the way Craven has bought additional and potentially highly valuable assets offshore Kenya to support the current exciting action. Cove has become a leading edge play on the new major oil area off East Africa, and there is much yet to come. Each well so far, even if it has not trumpeted a major discovery, has contributed to a greater understand of the geology of the area. Each step has validated the underlying assumptions which suggest that this is a vastly important play. Brokers are suggesting that what Cove already has could be worth 80p to 90p a share. Panmure Gordon appears to be leading the pack, raising the target price to 150p. That does not look over-generous, given the enormous potential of the licences. The company has already established a history of successful discoveries, and has a series of wells and other initiatives lined up to generate news throughout the next 12 months and beyond, all securely financed. Further fund-raising is not required, though an oil find could change that. If Cove should hit oil, the shares could rocket and the action could speed up – with the prospect of a bid likely to appear. Any oil share is speculative. Much depends on the unpredictable price of oil (though short of a new world economic slump any prolonged significant fall looks improbable), and no-one can guarantee that exploration and hydrocarbon recovery rates will prove successful. Beyond that, Cove still appears to be an outstanding player in a most exciting arena. Be prepared for the price to fluctuate (though the downside looks modest), and go for it.

sagem: Lets now see the share price gallop ahead, this news must be worth at least 10% in the share price or more Monday 29 November, 2010Cove Energy PLC Third Major Gas Discovery RNS Number : 9301W Cove Energy PLC 29 November 2010  29 November 2010 Cove Energy plc Lagosta - Third Major Gas Discovery Offshore Mozambique · More than 550 net feet of gas pay in Lagosta exploration well. · Three discoveries (Windjammer, Barquentine & Lagosta) exceed resource size threshold to support LNG development after planned appraisal drilling. · Anadarko's integrated development team advancing commercialisation options. · Lagosta discovery validates seismic predictive methodology increasing optimism for future drilling success. · Belford Dolphin drillship to remain in Area 1 Rovuma Offshore for foreseeable future. · Drilling continuing on Lagosta well to deeper target after which rig goes to Tubarao prospect. · Very active exploration & appraisal programme for 2011 and beyond to include exploration and appraisal drilling, new 3D seismic and well testing. · Recent £110 million placing ensures Cove fully financed. Cove Energy plc ("the Company" or "Cove", AIM:COV), the AIM quoted upstream oil and gas company, is pleased to announce another major gas discovery at the Lagosta prospect in the Rovuma Basin Area 1 block, Offshore Mozambique ("Area 1 Rovuma Offshore"). Lagosta is the fifth well in the offshore programme operated by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation ("Anadarko"), in the frontier Area 1 Rovuma Offshore (Cove Energy W.I 8.5%). The Lagosta discovery well encountered a total of more than 550 net feet of natural gas pay in multiple high-quality Tertiary sands. The full text of Anadarko's release is copied below: Anadarko Announces Major Discovery Offshore Mozambique HOUSTON, Nov. 29, 2010 - Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today announced its third major natural gas discovery this year in the Offshore Area 1 of Mozambique's Rovuma Basin at the Lagosta prospect. The discovery well encountered a total of more than 550 net feet of natural gas pay in multiple high-quality Oligocene and Eocene sands. "The Lagosta discovery, located approximately 16 miles to the south of the previously announced Barquentine discovery and 14 miles to the southeast of the Windjammer discovery, significantly expands this emerging world-class natural gas province," Anadarko Sr. Vice President, Worldwide Exploration Bob Daniels said. "The Lagosta discovery continues to validate our geophysical models, and we expect to keep the Belford Dolphin drillship in the basin for the foreseeable future to continue a very active exploration and appraisal program, including at least one planned drillstem test in 2011. "Although additional appraisal drilling will be required, we believe the three discoveries announced to date already exceed the resource size threshold necessary to support an LNG (liquefied natural gas) development, and we have assigned an integrated project team to begin advancing commercialization options. Given the global LNG trade and its indexing to the global crude market, this resource can provide tremendous economic value for the people of Mozambique, the government and the partnership," added Daniels. The Lagosta exploration well has been drilled to a current depth of approximately 13,850 feet in water depths of approximately 5,080 feet. The partnership plans to drill to a total depth of approximately 15,900 feet to evaluate a deeper zone. Once operations are complete at Lagosta, the partnership expects to mobilize the rig 17.5 miles to the southwest to drill the Tubarão exploration well, which also is located in the 2.6-million-acre Offshore Area 1. Anadarko is the operator of Offshore Area 1 with a 36.5-percent working interest. Co-owners in the area are Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area 1, Limited (20 percent), BPRL Ventures Mozambique B.V. (10 percent), Videocon Mozambique Rovuma 1 Limited (10 percent) and Cove Energy Mozambique Rovuma Offshore, Ltd. (8.5 percent). Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos, ep's 15-percent interest is carried through the exploration phase. A map of Anadarko's position in the Offshore Area 1 of the Rovuma Basin and the Lagosta discovery will be available under the "Media Center/Anadarko News" tab at www.anadarko.com. Anadarko Petroleum Corporation's mission is to deliver a competitive and sustainable rate of return to shareholders by exploring for, acquiring and developing oil and natural gas resources vital to the world's health and welfare. As of year-end 2009, the company had approximately 2.3 billion barrels-equivalent of proved reserves, making it one of the world's largest independent exploration and production companies. For more information about Anadarko, please visit www.anadarko.com." John Craven, CEO of Cove said: "We are delighted with this milestone gas discovery at Lagosta, the third in this prolific gas fairway in our Rovuma offshore block. "The significance of this discovery means that the partnership can now confidently proceed towards commercialisation - particularly as the operator believes that the three gas discoveries already made, Windjammer, Barquentine and Lagosta, exceed the resource size threshold to support a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) development. I am also very impressed by the predictive seismic modelling deployed by Anadarko, the accuracy of which gives us increasing confidence for future exploration in the block. The operator's technical team deserve our thanks and congratulations for this ongoing success. "Cove shareholders can now look forward to a very active continuous exploration and appraisal drilling programme throughout and beyond 2011 commencing with the Tubarao exploration well immediately after Lagosta. Well testing and new 3 D seismic acquisition are also planned for next year. The recently announced £110 million placing ensures that Cove can fully participate with our partners in what promises to be a very exciting future. "We look forward to updating the market on our continuing progress offshore Mozambique." - Ends -

shoee62: Sector watcher on FT Alpha mentions Cov Quite a spike in the COV share price yesterday, up 8% at one point before closing +4%. I suspect this may be due to imminent news on the Barquentine gas prospect currently drilling offshore Mozambique. The Anadarko-led JV is currently drilling Barquentine next to the Windjammer discovery, which discovered an estimated 4tcf of gas in February this year. The follow-up Barquentine well is apparently a low-risk lookalike structure, which if successful could take total reserves closer towards the 10tcf required for a possible LNG development (140mboe net COV). Thereafter the group will either drill a further gas prospect (Lagosta) or a follow-up well close to Ironclad (Baracuda). With at least 17 further prospects identified by the JV, we believe there is a very real possibility that this opens up a huge hydrocarbon play offshore East Africa. The share price looks well underpinned by Windjammer, and we believe Ironclad etc still offer material upside, never mind the potential upside from the group's acreage offshore Tanzania. BG has just spudded a well there, with any future success likely to have a positive impact on COV. If equity markets don't recognise the value in COV the oil industry very likely will – BUY.

dr agon: interesting article which confirms on all three counts that cove is a buy imo Three signals to watch for safer investing By Tom Bulford Mar 11, 2010 Print this article All investors live in fear that there are important things going on about which they are unaware. As soon as they buy a share they start to wonder whether they have done the right thing. Suddenly all their optimistic justifications for buying the share are replaced by a host of doubts. They watch every tick of a share price, hoping to find some clue about what's going to happen to their money. The problem is, most investors don't know what they're looking for. But when you've been in the game for a while, you come to understand that the stock market does throw off some 'action signals' that can help you to sidestep these anxieties... A valuable lesson from an old stockbroker friend Years ago I worked with a stockbroker who taught me a useful lesson. He had an order from a client to sell 100,000 shares of a certain company. Rather than try to sell them all in one go, he first sold 25,000. Then he sat back and waited to see how the price reacted. Did that sale knock the price? Or were those shares snapped up eagerly without affecting it? If the latter, he would place an order to sell the next 25,000 – but at a higher price. He was using his first sale to pick up a signal from the market – which he could then use to his advantage. Three 'action signals' to keep you one step ahead of stock market movements There are three more stock signals to which I pay special attention. Learn these and you'll greatly improve your chance of stock market success. 1. Pay attention to volume Shares move for a reason. It may be because a new director is buying his obligatory shareholding. It may be that some private investor is selling to book a capital gain. In these instances trading volumes will be light, but may still be enough to move a share price. Such a move tells you nothing about the underlying business. But when prices rise in high volume, it indicates that several buyers are chasing the shares at the same time. There is likely to be a good story going around that has not come to public attention. If a business is doing well or if a big deal is in the offing, it's very rarely a total secret. One way or another, word gets into the market and buyers chase the shares. When share prices are driven up in high trading volume, this carries more significance than low trading volume. Here are three penny shares that were rising in high volume today: Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG), Provexis (PXS) and Circle Oil (COP). 2. Look at the new highs column There are plenty of dedicated chartists who will tell you to ignore 'the fundamentals' of profits, earnings and dividends and focus on the trend of the share price. For me, charts can give as many misleading signals as helpful ones. But there is one signal that I do look for. That is when a share hits a new high. Suddenly everybody who holds the share is in profit. Nobody is left who might be tempted to cut a loss or give up on share that is going nowhere. There is no fear, only greed. There are no obstacles in sight and the share price is free to move to a new higher plateau. Penny shares hitting a new high today include Surface Transforms (SCE), Advanced Medical Solutions (AMS) and Lifeline Scientific (LSI). 3. The message of the share issue Here is my third signal – perhaps the best of all. Pay careful attention to what happens when a company issues a pile of new shares. Whatever the reason, the share price should fall. This is basic supply and demand. Just look at the how shares in the Prudential have plummeted since it revealed plans to issue $20bn of new shares. But every now and then a company will issue new shares – and yet its share price will go up. If these shares have been issued to finance a deal, the City will have looked very closely at the details. If it has accepted all the newly issued shares and then waded into the market to buy even more at a higher price, you can be certain that it likes what it sees.
