rivaldo: Malcy's update FYI. As a non-oilie, has anyone ever calculated as an estimate what SQZ's "limited" decommissioning liabilites might be as against the £90m and fast-rising cash pile? Https:// Useful extracts: "On M&A there were a number of attempts by analysts to get something out of the CEO as to what might be in the sights and whether prices have risen as hydrocarbon prices rise. Indeed one suggested that SQZ may not be the hunter, more the hunted as with Harbor and Premier…On the serious point it is clear that whilst they are looking at potential acquisitions they will not be overpaying for anything but they would say that wouldn’t they…?" "Overall this is another excellent set of results from Serica who’s management continue to deliver the goods even when technical problems sometimes occur. It was no surprise that the ESG presentation was extensive and of high quality and Mike Killeen on operations showed how costs are being cut and efficiencies substantial. It is worth watching the ICE gas price and I now put that price at the top of every blog now because it is so important. SQZ is at the top of the Bucket list for all the above reasons, gas is the future, it knows what direction to go and the management is top quality all the way down. It ticks all the boxes for me…"
anley: It is all very well for boards to put out "possible acquisition etc" statement BUT not one of these AIM listed companies have been able to pull off a deal. WHY? Read all their statements and all of them are couched in words that mean nothing. Since 2019 it was clear that the better companies such as Serica, Independent Oil & Gas, Deltic with its Shell deals and now perhaps Kistos are the ones who would but I think are finding it difficult to find a deal. Is it that if there are deals they are too big and not able to be financed for one reason or another? Does management really want to do a deal - Kistos does but Longboat Energy has spent £4m and has found nothing except a falling share price and as oil and gas prices rise in an inflationary way then the price of a deal will become more expensive and that gives the management of say Serica an excuse to say no its too expensive. If you follow that statement through then Serica becomes what I call a "run off" share,,,,,,,cash flow is used to pay dividends and pay off the shareholders but of course the board will say but we have some other prospects to drill/develop....I agree but look at how long that would take and at the same time use up current cash balances which are building up. Very difficult when these directors have to think about their so called expansion plans...............put simply there are none!! Peel Hunt calls 134p full value at this stage for SQZ and my belief is that is why the share price is struggling......................we shall see.
manicat: rhum 3 at the moment is the only thing that can have a negative impact on the share price. but will the share price break though 140 and above if it is successful ? oh i forgot about the gas price down 13% today
almsivi: Is it possible that Serica are the buyer? Wouldn't they need to RNS that they were doing this? Or do they have the authority to do this from one of the motions passed at the AGM?If it's Serica buying back their own shares, that makes a huge difference and also would explain why the share price is increasing and not dropping.Someone is hungry for more SQZ, clearly. Maybe we'll find out when GRG drop the magic 5%
captainfatcat: Farmscan, Dunder well done. The scaling up of my investment in TXP was actually directly related to SQZ. I had a small investment in TXP for about 12 months prior to its Coho discovery at which time TXP's market cap was around £20M. I kept thinking about when SQZ was sub 10p and they acquired a share in Erskine and the delay before the market reacted and the share price shot up from around 8p to 35-40pish once the effect of that revenue was digested. With TXP's Coho gas discovery onshore and only 3 kilometres from the BG/shell processing facility I felt a real sense of deja vu that the Coho discovery was not being reflected in the share price due to a large distressed seller (North Energy) at that time off loading into any strength surpresing any rise the the share price I jumped at the opportunity loading up around 20p feeling pretty confident the market cap woul be heading for £50-60M. The drilling success then continued with Cascadura, Chinook and Cascadura Deep and all of a sudden chatter is of the discoveries being in the 2-3TCF range with the largest target (Royston)still to be drilled in April. I hit £2M in my ISA on the back of yesterday's rise there. Fingers crossed it still has a long way to go yet. With out doubt I've been very fortunate and it's turned into a life changing investment for me.
anley: CHESTNUTS...........what you are saying is that so called institutions are not buying ENERGY shares such as BP/Shell are sort of right as you must be following what our clueless press writes as a few big shareholders have said they will sell down part of their holding. That was yesterday but we are now in 2021 and much will be very different later in the year. But so what...........let us look at the example of MIDDLE EAST money coming in to the North Sea and taking over RockRose last year. If you want capital its always around somewhere in the world and energy businesses are world wide. In the case of SQZ it is a gas extraction business bought from BP and the current business plan is fine but within a year it will need to replenish its reserves. If it does not then it becomes a take-over target because that is what the controlling shareholders and City bankers will flow and even a run-off company. In the meantime it can build its cash balances and use them to acquire but so far its careful management team has decided to push on - pay a dividend to keep us happy and sit and wait as management does not have a great deal of skin in the game and that is a problem for most of the AIM energy companies. The final problem is short term shareholders V longish term shareholders and energy prices and inflation.................. Commodity prices are now raising as is inflation.........go ask your wife how much the food costs each week and how much damage the recent wet weather has caused,,,,,,,,,,,,SO Gas now at 50p pt and at that level cash flow is just what is wanted for SQZ.
thorpematt: NG has been doing its best to retrace back to its summer low. The mild temperature in N.America has not helped. The 10% drop a couple of days ago (followed by yesterday's bounce) was driven by the un-expectededly high EIA data for US inventories. Encouragingly SQZ's share price has broken out of its recent resistance at circa 115p free stock charts from '> Form my perspective, I reckon that SQZ is way better-positioned than most in a low price environment. My mid-term view is that the low prices for oil and gas that we've seen through 2020 are not likely to be sustained for 2021.
sawney: Probably way off beam but perhaps there's a major?? shareholder drip feeding the market?...Is it likely..?? This has been going on for quite a few weeks/months with the suppressed share price, while others have been gaining a lot of ground. I see that despite at least 2 major shareholder updates in the last 6 months ?, SQZ have noted on their website that AXA last reported in May..... Https://
almsivi: So I had a wee bit of time this afternoon - here are my figures revised for newer OGA data: Bruce & Keith Production now 8600 boepd - SQZ share @ 60% = 5160, BP@40% = 3440 50%(23.8k total)Rhum Prod now 11900 boepd - SQZ share @ 60% = 7140, BP@40% = 4760 Total Serica production now from BKR = 5160 + 7140 = 12300 R3 increase on BP/SQZ 50% = 11900*1.5 = 17850 boepd Bruce & Keith residual 40% = 3440 boepd Closure of deal in 2022+ R3 share = 17850+3440 = 21290 boepd The closest comparison I can make is what CNR as a group produce in the North Sea, 21,900 boepd - from the Ninians, Tiffany & all associated tiebacks.
swanvesta: "Share price: 111.8p (unchanged) No. shares: 267.6m Market cap: £297.58m A very quick update here, just to tell the market that Serica Energy (LON:SQZ) has been offered a new operating licence covering four UK North sea blocks. I’ve had a quick look at this oil and gas (mainly gas) operator before and it seems like it could be a solid pick. So much here depends on the macro outlook for gas of course but that’s why it’s worth flagging. Some metals are rallying - will oil and gas rebound at some point too? Or are the dynamics just too different given the ongoing social drive towards a green, renewable future? I have no exposure to the Oil & Gas sector right now and am curious to hear other people’s views on this part of the market. I’m quite happy on the sidelines for now but if I had to be picking stocks here to look at more closely, I would probably be looking at SQZ and £JSE. SQZ has a c£100m net cash position but there may be decommissioning liabilities to read up on. Interim results are out next Thursday so that should provide some guidance. As I said though, happy to sit out for now."
