Perhaps some of this knowledgeably could be adapted to SEY's ventures...or would it be too expensive getting the oil out? Date: 27 April 2017 Using new technique, BP finds significant additional resources in the Gulf of Mexico HOUSTON - BP today announced a major breakthrough in seismic imaging that has identified more than 200 million barrels of additional resources at BP’s Atlantis field in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. As a result of this early success, BP now is deploying this technique to fields elsewhere in the Gulf of Mexico as well as in Azerbaijan, Angola, and Trinidad and Tobago. The innovation has enabled BP to enhance the clarity of images that it collects during seismic surveys, particularly areas below the earth’s surface that complex salt structures previously obscured or distorted. The sharper seismic images mean that BP can drill new development wells in deepwater reservoirs with higher confidence and accuracy. “This technological breakthrough has essentially allowed our team to find a new oil field within our existing Atlantis field,” said Bernard Looney, chief executive of BP’s global upstream business. “Given the overwhelming success of this project, we are now deploying this technology across BP’s global operations.” Proprietary algorithms developed by BP’s Subsurface Technical Center were applied on seismic data run at BP’s Center for High Performance Computing, one of the largest supercomputers in the world dedicated to commercial research. The algorithms allowed data that would normally take a year to be analyzed to be processed in only a few weeks, accelerating BP’s development decisions for the field. The algorithms enhance a technique known as Full Waveform Inversion (FWI), which matches seismic simulations with existing seismic data to produce high quality subsurface images. “This innovation again shows that BP remains at the forefront of advanced seismic imaging and digital technologies,” said Ahmed Hashmi, BP’s head of upstream technology. “The new technique has produced the best images of this reservoir that we have ever seen.”

I very much doubt they'll do anything substantive - those 3 neds resigning last year just about sums SEY up. https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/sterling-energy-SEY/share-news/Sterling-Energy-PLC-Board-Changes/72659971

These type of small, Wild West style, oil exploration companies are purely binary. Unlike other small caps, there will be no gradual emergence into profitability. Instead, they either discover a producer/exporter well (joy but with 10% probability) or fail (virtual loss of your investment and 90% probability). No amount of charismatic management is going to change the geology, oil, water, gas or governmental risks associated with a given explorer well. They (the management) might influence the profit/expenditure sharing arrangements with other parties and they might have the experience/background necessary to optimise the test drill cost/efficiency/choice of location. ...but geology not. The unusual situation with SEY at the moment is that the share price is low compared to its cash reserves. So, with the exception of the Chinguetti decommissioning costs (and heaven knows how long that hand wringing exercise is going to go drag on for), anyone buying in now is getting their roll of the 10 sided dice on the relative cheap.

In that case I would think there's no reason for you to post any further on this board unless you are still an investor and anticipating an increase in price under the new BoD direction ..

Hi Septimus, this was my first SEY AGM. I only recently took a position in the Company. I believe though since the 2016 AGM a number of Directors have left ? SEY have new directors on the board now.

Waterford is an oil and gas focused vehicle, specialising in the financing of oil, gas and other energy related projects in emerging markets. He has been directly involved in the capital raising for natural resource projects and in acquiring, restructuring, developing and divesting such assets. Waterford has a number of substantial shareholdings in oil and gas companies with operations in Europe, Africa, North America and Australasia. Eskil Jersing, Chief Executive Officer. Eskil (dob 1964) joined the Company in March 2015. He holds a BSc in Geophysics from University College Cardiff and an MSc in Petroleum Geology from Imperial College London. He started his career in the oil and gas industry in 1985 as a Field Seismologist with SSL in Papua New Guinea.

I've been to SEY AGM's on previous occasions and, temperamentally, the executives are naturally bullish. ...but people need to know what they are getting into with this type of company. What they do is raise some dosh (done in SEY's case) usually followed by some form of geotechnical survey work (often in partnership, to defray costs). They then take a punt on some likely spot, hire some very expensive equipment and start drilling (especially expensive if offshore although onshore usually involves some access/accommodation works). Then, by some miracle, if the geology is correct, i.e. oil impervious rock over oil easy porous rock, absence of gas, water, etc, they might discover a "producer". Then, by another miracle, if they manage to get into production (dealing with corrupt, unstable governments), they become an exporter. Then, and only then, will there be a pay off. Probably 10% chance.

I'd hope so. Well pleased that SEY are seriously sourcing M & A opportunities with news being anticipated within the next six months. The new BoD and management are incentivised. Along with the major institutional shareholders the total percentage of shares now held by directors, management and institutions is 64.4 %. Peel Hunt are the SEY brokers.

I attended this mornings' AGM, well impressed with Mikhael Kroupeev and the new BoD. The focus is to increase production from existing assets whilst continuing to look for M & A opportunities which does not include Syria. Mikhael Kroupeev I understand has a sizeable investment in SEY. He and the Directors ~ do remember this is a new team ~ want to see good success for SEY. I mentioned SDX and SAVP. When could we as shareholders in SEY expect positive news re : M & A opportunities ? ' Six months approx ' Conclusion : this is a solid BoD with great experience and well motivated for success. If the cost of the abandonment liability is capped / kept firmly under control then I'd suggest that with a net cash figure of $ US 88 mill and zero debt plus a good focus on the correct M & A opportunities, SEY might be seeing some good success. To conclude. I added 87,500 shares to my original holding. Every success to : Mikhael Kroupeev, Leo Koot and Ilya Belyaev.

The salt is rubbed in the would of long termers who sell is that the Company has so much cash you would get double if they just returned the cash to shareholders.

tarquin thought sangaw was going to be our great saviour 6 years ago or whatever it was , if you believed everything SEY told us there was oil supposedly gushing from behind every rock out there and we all believed them if the truth be known SEY have lost alot of people alot of money which has no doubt ruined a few lives along the way because of there gross incompetence , has there ever been another oil exploration company who has never actually found any oil ?

Xiggly, Re Somalia, even if Sterling discover the biggest oil well in history, getting the oil out of these bent, tinpot dictator countries (masquerading as democracies) is fraught with difficulties. Take GKP, virtually going bust trying to get money out of the KRG, despite actively pumping oil from their "world class" discovery. So you have SEY, sat on a large cash pile, with cavalier type directors desperate to drill a hole anywhere because that's what they get off on (and who cares anyway, it's not their money they're risking). Whereas any sensible person would just hand the money back to the shareholders. Not that this will make you feel any better but my own losses in SEY are roughly double yours.

Well I'm now in rant mode. The recent RNS regarding reduction in capital is a case in point, sneaked out on the back of a Notice of AGM. The reduction in capital makes no sense and achieves nothing*. All it indicates is that the director's minds aren't fully focused on finding oil but are more concerned with corporate shenanigans. *unless it is part of a journey to marginalise the existing small PIs into oblivion.

Tick-tock, slowly whittling down the (shareholder's) cash reserves to nothing.
