This one's so thick that their feigned ignorance actually temporarily elevates their intelligence level. Can someone see if this confused patient still prefers to have 0.91 pence over 4p? ;) roverite12 18 Aug '17 - 14:30 - 545427 of 545437 3 1 I'm a little confused as to your post below ...but who is this Bob ? --------

Buy !!!!!As much as you can. notout111: with $140.3 million cash-at-bank and a further $36 million due on the regular formula for the past three months' production, that represents $176.3 million cash. Current account expenses for those past three months will already have been paid by GKP, so that represents a very strong financial position. The debt figure of $100 million (at 10% interest) could now be cleared and GKP would then have no debt and some $75 million in the bank and rising. But the $100 million bonds effectively cover capital expenditure to that level at just 10% interest. The "Bridge to 55,000 bopd" capex investment (GKP element of the cost, the MNR and MOL having to pay their shares) is well below that according to GKP's figures, and such capex is in any case recoverable from Shaikan production going forward under the existing PSC Cost Recovery Terms. The free cash from future monthly production should cover that capex programme, even if it were to be accelerated from the snail's pace 15 to 18 months timescale quoted by Jon Ferrier. So the likelihood is that GKP will continue to have a very strong cash-at-bank position. In addition to the existing cash, sums are due to GKP for (a) the exercise by the MNR of the Shaikan Third-Party Back-in Rights and (b) Cost Recovery of the capital sums invested by GKP in the existing wells, Production Facility 1 and Production Facility 2. Those sums run into hundreds of millions of dollars. A stronger oil price would support the speedier receipt of that money. It is important IMO to note that (a) ERC Equipoise said that the current Shaikan Jurassic wells could produce very much more than they were, but their output was being restricted by export constraints and (b) GKP "continues to be strongly encouraged by the stable performance of the Shaikan Field during 2017" as was stated in RNS yesterday. We are now in August and so for eight months the production has been stable, contradicting some rather odd comments made on here by certain persons and also demonstrating that gassing-out has not occurred. Perhaps the latter has reduced the need to quickly commence the "Bridge to 55,000 bopd" work? With stable performance, urgent work to install ESPs (which never made much sense to me in a gassing-out context, because lowering the producing interval is surely the operational solution for that type of reservoir issue) apparently no longer remains a priority. Whether the "Bridge to 55,000 bopd" option is optimal in any case is unclear: if GKP were to be sold, a purchaser would surely want to do things their own way, and that might not be the same way that GKP would do it, because trouser pockets and purses differ in size. Embarking upon such work when performance is stable depends IMO upon M&A issues. In the hypothetical scenario of GKP being sold (and the Exit Awards were specifically extended from 13 July 2017 to 31 December 2017) the purchaser would be due to receive the monies mentioned above. That is rather like buying a used camera and finding diamonds hidden inside it. But a purchaser could potentially renegotiate the Shaikan PSC Terms with the MNR, for example so that outstanding sums were traded for an increased revenue per barrel figure going forward. The PSC is not Holy Scripture and can potentially be changed if that were to suit both parties (and MOL). We also have the Feeder Pipeline development. The 36-inch diameter run from Shaikan to the Main Export Pipeline is now in operation and the public domain photographs of the site within Shaikan, where the 12-inch run from Atrush changes to the 36-inch run, show substantial works. Jon Ferrier told Mees Magazine that connecting Shaikan to the pipeline was his #1 priority for 2017 and there is a public domain statement (not from GKP) about building a Blending Plant at that location, in order to inject the Shaikan oil. Jon Ferrier said at the December 2016 AGM in Dublin that a Mixing Plant, rather than a Blending Plant, would be the operational solution. A Mixing Plant is much simpler than a Blending Plant, which involves modulating the flow rate, and a Mixing Plant is not expensive. But again we come to the M&A issue of whether a potential purchaser might want to do that work themselves etc. Perhaps the key task at present is establishing the real - rather than the assumed - characteristics of the Shaikan Jurassic reservoir? We have already seen the previous aquifer-drive model replaced by a totally different gas-drive model. We have a dual-porosity reservoir with oil and gas coming out of the matrix, rather than just oil from the Fracture System. We have seen a major change in the Shaikan Jurassic development programme, with (a) gravity drainage replacing aquifer-driven lift, and (b) substantial relocation of the planned future producing wells. And as was pointed out last night on the bulletin boards, the CPR was in any case somewhat anomalous because it claimed that there was no water below the central part of Shaikan anyway. On one line of thinking, establishing what Shaikan really contains, and how it can best be developed to suit the objectives of the MNR and the operator (be that ultimately GKP or someone else) would appear to be the priority.

Bigdog5, well, since you ask so nicely... Yes, it did hit 40Mbopd - as per the H1 Report on 27th Aug 2015. "Production 4.7 million barrels produced in H1 2015, a 102% increase over H1 2014 Total production to date over 14 million barrels Current production in excess of 40,000 bopd 2015 production guidance between 30,000 – 34,000 bopd" In any continuous process plant, fed by pressurised fluids (and gasses) from holes in the ground, there will be fluctuations. Some of these will be naturally occurring (rock formations do not have constant homogenity and variations within an area, causing flows to vary, can be experienced within hundreds, sometimes, tens of meters. Some of these will be as a result of plant "wear & tear", some will be due to simple stuff like silted sand screens and clogged perforations; there are dozens of possibilities. Added to that, of course, are possibilities like taking one, or more, wells off stream for extended periods (pressure recovery characteristics) in order to evaluate (and assist other neighbouring operators,) depletion, interference and communication aspects of producing formations. The difference between 40Mbopd and 37Mbopd is not going to break the bank, or make anybody rich, and probably plays into a much more refined KRG:MNR power-play of which we currently have little understanding. Maybe the buyer just wants 37Mbopd / 13MMstb pa at the moment?

I would reckon those holding for £8 old money and needing double figures to breakeven will be edgy especially when production is falling. Could this be why DNO walked away? Perhaps the best route for GKP would be farming out a large percentage of ShaiCon and getting a free carry on a well that can go deep for the better quality oil. If it's there. That would allow the Bod to keep troughing, so what's not to like? Perhaps there's a fake reverend in the house that would like to opine on my excellent idea?

Here's what the Gob5hite posted "nicebut, i'd go along with CJ and hopefully the $19b has been turned down as well. Reserves of 5b at $5 a barrel is north of £17. Then there's the gas."
