habshan: In the 13 months between the beginning of September 2017 and the end of September 2018 the price of a barrel of Brent averaged $68.35. During the same period the GKP share price went from £1 to £3. The payments came monthly and the Company was able to build it's cash pile to the point that it was able to commence the investment programme. The current Brent price is $68.68. At around the current oil price GKP and the KRG will do just fine. Should be another $20 million in the bank in the next day or two.

therealminotaur: 67891011Next Share Chat PageStraycat Posts: 27 Opinion: No Opinion Price: 227.00 Fundamentals.Today 12:28It seems that on any rational analysis gkp share price is unsustainable at current levels. Cash balances may well hit $300m+ by year end given current monthly receipts and even ignoring any claw back from previous arrangements. Throw that analysis forward to June next year assuming poo @$70-$80 and you have a business that will be valued at or around cash at bank. Put another way, investors would have to have concluded that gkp has no intrinsic operational value at all, even though it will be pumping out c.a.30kbopd. and generating millions of dollars of profitable receipts every month!!! Given the calibre of the share register that cannot be right. Something's got to give and it will inevitably be the share price which clearly can't be suppressed for much longer. Or am I wrong? What have I missed? Please help me understand!! The regional geopolitical tensions aren't going away, nor is the infighting between the key political players in Iraq. And yes, as a consequence, and given it's chequered history, this is a risk share. But that in itself cannot explain what we are witnessing. Can it? ======== The share price is being suppressed to squeeze out any retail holders stupid enough to sell, before the imminent takeover announcement.

oil_investor: OfficerDigby: he may simply be attention-seeking, trying to engage genuine shareholders on discussion with him. He wanted his own discussion board, and that’s what he’s got: the “Cutthecagain” one. But now that he’s found the genuine shareholders won’t use it (so no surprises there) he’s back on here. His references to a Goat fitted with a webcam, as the source of his information, is risible. He has in the past posted unreleased GKP information on here, but what he is recently posting has no content. Statements about SH-8 which are wrong, statements about Sheikh Adi which are wrong, incoherent stuff about “Fred Flintstone”, schoolboy stuff about secret coded messages, claims that there is a “new” unpublished 55,000 bopd investment programme, the content of which he inexplicably knows, even though GKP released the details of the MNR-approved 55,000 bopd plan, which is being implemented, only last month...what seems to happen is that people criticise him, and he responds by claiming to have infirmation which nobody else does. Look at my post (copied below) to nestoframpers. He can’t handle it because it is all factual. I’ve copied it below, with references to sources. He says he doesn’t care about the Financial Conduct Authority.

oil_investor: And some more analysis, “buried” by the obsessional postings of a very small number of non-shareholders: the real minotaur: at the start of 2012, GKP had a Market Capitalisation of £1.5 billion. The average Brent oil price during 2011 had been $111 per barrel. Whilst it has recently recovered into the $70 to $80 range, it had dropped to $36 a barrel in December 2015 and Goldman Sachs predicted that it could drop to as little as $20 a barrel. Against such a backdrop and with ISIS on the rampage, it was hardly surprising that the GKP share price fell. Now some people on here - who don’t even have any shares, so quite what they are doing here 24/7 is a real puzzle - keep going on about the current share price being one-hundredth of what it was. Now if that were true - and bearing in mind that the total number of shares in issue is now only one-quarter of what it was - the Market Capitalisation would surely be one four-hundredth of that it was? But it’s not. The Market Capitalisation moves around from day to day, as if of course it will. But this morning it is £650 million. [EDIT: £575 million at today’s close]. So it’s a bit less than half the early-2012 level [EDIT: about one-third of the early-2012 level], but the oil price is still quite a lot lower. And if we look at what the Market Capitalisation woukd be at the new Peel Hunt target price of 356p, it would be some £880 million. Many, if not most, PIs always have great difficulty in doing calculations where there is a complex mix of Consolidation, Rights Issue, Open Offer and change in the equity base. It’s not simple. It deoends upon so many factors, including one’s attitude, ability to do costings, and level of participation in Rights Issue and Open Offer opportunities. And also upon buying in the open market or not following - and indeed, immediately prior to - such major events. My personal opinion is that someone’s boot was hard on the GKP brake until about five months ago. Then the braking pressure was reduced. I said this on here months ago. It makes no difference to me whether anyone agrees with me, or not. My ”boot hypothesis” would explain why the ESPs were not installed earlier. For goodness sake, installing three ESPs with a workover rig? That’s nursery school stuff in terms of oilfield operations. But regardless of whose foot might have been inside the hypothetical boot, major change has taken place. The management team appears, to my eyes - for the first time in a long time - to be credible, even though Jon Ferrier is far less visible than I would personally expect from a CEO. And the Market Capitalisation figure shows that the company is seen by the institutions as being very valuable. If they thought otherwise, they wouldn’t have those holdings. GKP Chairman Jaap Huijskes and Mr Ferrier have said “We fully appreciate the continued support of all our stakeholders during what has been a very important period in the Company's history. Alongside our partner, MOL, and our hosts, the KRG and the MNR, we remain excited about the next 12 to 18 months, as we stand poised to realise Shaikan's full potential over the coming years”. I think that says it all.

oil_investor: Phillis: I think you need to get some glasses. The GKP share price is one hundred times higher than your figure lol btw you were sitting next to Tony Hayward on a plane on 8 April 2018, so you claimed. You reported that Mr. Hayward told you that he was ”still positive about Genel”. The Genel share price then dropped from about 290p the following month to about 220p last month. Isn’t that a bigger drop than that of GKP?
