sawney: No idea of the amounts involved but would think that BP's shareholding will more than cover Erskine's decommissioning costs when the time comes...I do feel that perhaps there is more to come from their relationship with SQZ... Interesting that the share price has pushed on from this morning. Perhaps the news is slowly filtering out, and from what I've seen so far, there has been no mention of any expected amounts/payments, back dated to 1st Jan...?
lord gnome: Oh dear, just what I need - another buying opportunity. What I really want is a share price north of 110 so that I can cash out a few. Once all issues are resolved, I have no doubt that we will be a lot further north than 110, but a man could get a lot older waiting for that to happen. Holding SQZ is rather like chasing the end of the rainbow - the pot of gold is always tantalisingly just out of reach.
dunderheed: Well there wasn't much of a need to print that off then lol! A pessimist could say if everything was 100% certain they would have given licence for another year just in case sqz didn't take over assets and the reason they didn't was because it still needed a 'higher' authorisation post Nov 4th. An optimist may say - well why bother issuing now as the aim is for sqz to take over assets and another licence would need to be issued then? It'll be interesting to see what happens share price today opening bets lol! Me I'm 88p? (i.e. haven't a clue!) Off for a ginger and lemongrass smoothie so will likely be on my phone now! Best of luck all!
captainfatcat: Personally if and when the BKR completes I see a lot of potential upside in SQZ's share price so will probably be adding further funds here. Funny thing is I will probably add as well if the deal falls through and the share price gets silly as it inevitably would. While it might not be 10 bagger potential SQZ is going to look a very solid prospect. Future upside to earnings look low risk and locked in as BP's percentage of revenue decreases over the next three years. Erskine restarts coincides with significant shift in gas price and a little further down the line Columbus field comes online. That's without figuring in something for Namibia, Rowallan success or what ever they might be looking at longer term. A share price starting with a 2 followed by a 3 then a 4. Looks I think very achievable over the next few years. Just need to get the BKR uncertainty out of the way. The temptation to take profits is always high but that's just human nature. Banking profits is never a wrong decision after all.
mirabeau: Today's IC - 'Serica Energy (SQZ) was also up 17.7 per cent, recovering most of May and June’s losses. It was a nice move ahead of the 3 August announcement of its purchase of Total’s 42.25 per cent stake in the Bruce field and 25 per cent stake in the Keith field in the North Sea. It's a cleverly structured deal, which sees Serica's interest in Bruce increase to 78.3 per cent and in Keith to 59.8 per cent; the share price leapt 23 per cent. It expects this and its previously announced BKR deal with BP to complete before the end of September. On completion, Serica’s daily production will increase to around 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd). A year ago, it was producing just 2,800 boepd. It has increased production nearly 10-fold without diluting shareholders through issuing shares and has avoided taking on debt by financing the two deals through existing and future cash flow. There is the small matter of its partner in the Rhum field being the Iranian National Oil Corporation. It is seeking regulatory consents for Rhum including a licence from the US Office of Foreign Assets Control. If that is forthcoming I think the share price has a lot further to go.'
the abbot: Don't miss the important one The Performance Share Awards have been made in the form of nil-cost options to senior employees and executive directors and include a grant of options over 1,500,000 Ordinary shares of US$0.10 each made to the Executive Chairman, Antony Craven Walker and a grant over 1,500,000 Ordinary shares of US$0.10 each to Mitch Flegg, Chief Executive Officer. The Performance Share Awards are subject to performance conditions based on average share price targets to be measured by reference to dealing days in the period of 90 days ending immediately prior to the expiry of a three-year performance period starting on 30 November 2017. The measurement does not start until after the deal was announced so their performance is based from AFTER the large share price rise in Nov. Those shareholders on the lse website don't seem to get it!
dunderheed: 7501 I was nervous matey, I was nervous! (About the 7500 post not the sqz share price I hasten to add!)
gersemi: Serica Energy (LSE:SQZ) This stock pick is a continuation of our previous article, which can be viewed here. In the previous CJ Exposure report, the various up-and-coming production lines were detailed, showing where the company’s future revenue will be coming from. Since the report, Serica announced that they were set to acquire assets from BP in the North Sea, which would further bolster their future revenue streams. The share price rocketed from 27p to settle around 80p over the weeks after the announcement, taking the market cap from £80m to £215m, after a period where the shares were suspended from trading. Now, at 75p per share, Serica presents a buying opportunity and although this is a lot higher than the 27p entry point from our previous article, we still believe there is more growth on offer. The re-rating reflects the BP acquisition, where the company have managed to make the deal without compromising their balance sheet and without taking on any debt, which leaves Serica in the same fantastic financial position that they had been in previously, and therefore our thesis still stands they will continue to go out and grow the business, organically and in-organically, and push for further share price re-rating. The acquisition involves Serica purchasing BP's interests in the Bruce (36%) Keith (35%) and Rhum (50%) fields with Serica assuming operating interest of all three fields. Serica have described this move as transformational and it's hard to disagree; the new fields increase net production from 3,000boepd (Barrels of Energy per day) to an estimated 21,000boepd (7x) and a sixteen-fold increase in net reserves to 50mmboe from 3mmboe. Not only will it significantly improve Serica’s cashflow, but it also diversifies the company away from the problematic forties pipeline; previously the pipeline had been Serica’s only export source and had suffered blockages which would weigh heavily on their share price, but with a more diversified export system, and less reliance on one pipeline, a temporary shutdown wouldn't hurt Serica like it has done in the past. The deal will initially cost £12.8m and then a profit-sharing deal with BP on future production from Bruce, Keith and Rhum will be paid. BP also assume 100% of decommissioning costs assuming no new facilities are installed by Serica after completion, and with this earn-out structure in place it appears to be somewhat of a win-win for both parties, as they share both risks and future profits. The deal is expected to complete by mid-2018, with Serica taking on all of the BP employees working over the three assets, which could help with some of the short-term teething issues as Serica move from being a single asset producer to being operational over multiple assets. We are less concerned by any teething issues as our preference for Serica shares is based on a longer-term view, where we see Serica becoming a leading British independent oil and gas company, and in this regard, we still see there being a lot of upside on the price that is already up c.200% in the last 12 months. Peel Hunt have set a target price of 110p, which offers upside of c.38% from current levels, but we believe that this will prove conservative in the longer term. On a larger scale, we don’t believe that a 75p share price reflects the potential of Serica Energy. The new assets will be producing first oil to Serica in the coming months, but it’s also worth reflecting on our previous article, where we detailed the other projects planned to come on-stream in the next few years (including the Columbus and Rowellen fields), which we believe means that Serica will become a major player in the North Sea and could offer significate upside against risk. Serica also looks appealing on current valuations; trading with a P/E of only 3x and a PEG of 0.04x; this look very attractive, especially when considering shares in the company have risen by over 400% since January 2017. In particular, a PEG of 0.04 implies that Serica shares are still yet to price in almost the entirety of the company’s forecasted growth. It is for exactly this reason, the forecasted growth that Serica offers, partnered with one of the lowest PEG’s that you will find, that warrants its place in our top stock picks for 2018. HTTP://
captainfatcat: Very reassuring to see the share price looking so resilient, sells are getting mopped up and the news of a temporary shutdown of the Forties pipeline hasn't made a dent in the share price Long holders are feeling very optimistic about the acquisition (that's me). But as has been mentioned its not a done deal as yet and accordingly there is an element of risk still attached to the share price which diminishing as we get closer to year end and the transfer of ownership official starts. For sure if news of the pipeline shutdown came before the acquisition announcement I think we would be sub 20p and all feeling pretty glum about it. ------------------------------ Another thought I wonder with North Sea costs driven down and the oil price seeming a little more buoyant if there might be interest again in bringing the Vette oil field (previously Bream field) into production. Small bear now and I'm not sure who the current owners are or if SQZ are still in line to benefit from a bonus payment when the field is brought into production. Have a good weekend all
fuji99: mesquida - I referred to the Share Price as Bear said. Obviously it is the production increase that will boost the share price accordingly. The actual share price does not reflect the whole potential of future production as market cap - share price related - is too low.
