REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

 

OVERVIEW AND STRATEGY

Consistent with the Company's strategy to focus on gas production and Carbon Capture and Storage ("CCS"), Synergia's activities have centred on the Company's Cambay gas and condensate field in India and on CCS opportunities in the UK and recently, in India.

Following on from the successful re-frac of the Cambay C-77H well in mid-2022, the Company has continued efforts to enhance production from the well during the Period, thereby facilitating progress towards a full field development. To this end, the Company entered into a Heads of Terms, during the half-year, with Selan Exploration Technology Limited ("Selan"), with a view to farming out up to 50% of the Cambay PSC.

On 14 February 2024, the Company executed a farm out agreement with Selan as detailed below.

The Company was awarded a Carbon Dioxide Appraisal and Storage Licence by the UK Government's North Sea Transition Authority on 17 August 2023.

Cambay Field, Onshore Gujarat, India

(Synergia Energy: Operator and 100% Participating Interest)

The C-77H re-frac operation in mid-2022 indicated an on-going issue of liquid loading in the well, confirming the need for an artificial lift solution for Eocene wells in order to optimise gas and gas condensate production. After due evaluation, a jet pump was installed in September 2023, enabling uninterrupted plateau production from the well.

The jet pump installation on the C-77H well continues to work reliably with production for the month of December 2023 averaging 114,000 SCFD and 4 BPD condensate, the jet pump being operated for 10 hours per day. In addition, the well produced an average of 13-15 BPD of water. After an initial reduction in fluid column height, a recent echometer survey revealed an increase of fluid column height from c. 200m to 300m. It is believed the legacy fracked zones (1-4) are responsible for the water influx with the gas and condensate production coming from the re-frac zones 5 and 6. Mitigation alternatives are being studied, including the re-installation of the bridge plug to isolate frac zones 1-4.

Based on the C-77H re-frac results, the Company believes new multi-zone and fracked horizontal Eocene wells with artificial lift can be drilled with initial production rates of 4 mmscfd and 40% annual decline rates.

A Heads of Terms was entered into on 15 December 2023 with Selan with a view to farming out up to 50% of the Cambay PSC.

On 14 February 2024, the Company executed a Farm Out agreement with Selan:

·   The Company agreed to farm out 50% of the 100% interest held by the Synergia Group in the Cambay PSC to Selan.

·   Selan, is an Indian oil and gas operator listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange of India. Selan has currently entered into a scheme of amalgamation with Antelopus Energy Private Limited, another highly respected Indian oil and gas operator, which is currently awaiting regulatory approvals.

·    Synergia and Selan will be joint operators of the Cambay PSC with Selan to be appointed as Lead Joint Operator.

·  Both Synergia and Selan are focussed on developing the Cambay PSC Eocene gas and gas condensate reservoir which contains independently certified 2P gas reserves of 206 BCF (as at 1 June 2022).

·   The farm-out and associated joint operating agreement are conditional upon customary consents from the Government of India ("GoI") for the transfer of the 50% interest to Selan and Selan assuming a Lead Joint Operator role ("GoI Approval").

·   Synergia and Selan have agreed the form of joint operating agreement for the Cambay PSC and will enter into the joint operating agreement upon receipt of GoI Approval.

·   In exchange for the 50% interest, Synergia will be carried by Selan through an agreed US$20 million work programme ("WP") comprising 3 new wells focussed on the Eocene reservoir and 3 well work-overs.

·    The WP is to be completed within 18 months of the later of GoI approval of the WP or the award of contracts for the WP, extendable by a further six months in certain circumstances.

·  Synergia will receive a cash payment of US$2.5 million immediately following GoI Approval. The Company proposes to apply the proceeds of this cash payment towards working capital purposes.

·    Synergia will retain a 50% interest in the Cambay PSC and a 50% share of the future production and revenues.

·  Synergia will be entitled to bonuses of up to US$9 million, linked to future cumulative gas sales thresholds being achieved as follows:

US$0.5 million, if cumulative gross gas sales from the Cambay PSC exceeds 5 Bcf;

US$1.0 million, if cumulative gross gas sales from the Cambay PSC exceeds 10 Bcf;

US$1.5 million, if cumulative gross gas sales from the Cambay PSC exceeds 15 Bcf;

US$2 million, if cumulative gross gas sales from the Cambay PSC exceeds 35 Bcf; and

US$4 million, if cumulative gross gas sales from the Cambay PSC exceeds 70 Bcf.

·    Selan has the option to participate in the Cambay CCS scheme on terms to be agreed.

Cambay CCS Scheme

Leveraging its CCS expertise and experience in the UK, the Company has developed a CCS scheme in India based on CO2 storage in the extensive Olpad Formation which extends under the Cambay producing reservoirs. The scheme proposes the capture of CO2 emitted from the many gas and coal-fired power stations in the vicinity of the Cambay field. CO2 would be transported via pipeline to a CCS hub on the Cambay field for injection into the Olpad Formation for permanent storage.

Further technical studies will be required to confirm the suitability of the Olpad Formation. In addition to the securing of funding, the necessary regulatory and commercial frameworks will need to be developed in order to bring this significant CCS scheme to fruition.

United Kingdom Continental Shelf

Carbon Capture and Storage ("CCS")

The Company, together with its joint venture partner Wintershall Dea Carbon Management Solutions UK, was formally awarded a Carbon Dioxide Appraisal and Storage Licence (the "CS019 licence") by the UK Government's North Sea Transition Authority on 17 August 2023.

Under the terms of the joint venture with Wintershall Dea Carbon Management Solutions UK, the Company is the operator of the joint venture.

The CS019 licence award, which covers the former Camelot gas field, marks a significant milestone for the Company's Medway Hub CCS project. The Medway Hub CCS project provides for the capture and transportation of CO2 emissions from coastal Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine power stations in liquid form by marine tanker to a Floating Injection, Storage and Offloading vessel (FISO) from which the CO2 would be injected into depleted gas fields and saline aquifers, which are situated in the UK Continental Shelf, for permanent sequestration. In addition, the FISO will be able to accept CO2 cargoes transported by marine tankers originating from Continental European locations.

On 21 December 2023 Wintershall DEA's parent company BASF and key shareholder LetterOne announced that it had reached agreement with UK-listed company Harbour Energy, for the latter to acquire the majority of Wintershall DEA's Exploration and Production global assets, in an $11.2 billion transaction. The deal is subject to regulatory approvals and scheduled to close towards the end of 2024. If successful, this will significantly increase Harbour's exposure to the UK CCS business sector.

The CS019 licence has a work program that incorporates an appraisal phase comprising seismic re-processing, technical evaluations and risk assessment, a contingent FEED study leading to the potential storage license application in 2028 following the final investment decision ("FID"). The Camelot license also includes a contingent appraisal well. First CO2 injection is anticipated for 2029/2030. The Company's share of the initial work phase is subject to funding as would be the FID, to be made in due course.

JPDA 06-103, Timor Sea

In August 2020, on behalf of its Joint Venture Participants, Synergia Energy Ltd announced a Deed of Settlement and Release ("Deed") with the Autoridade Nacional Do Petroleo E Minerais ("ANPM"). Under the terms of the Deed, Synergia Energy committed to a settlement of US$800,000 payable up to the financial year 2024. This obligation was fully met when the Group made its final instalment on 7 September 2022.

To fund the settlement to ANPM, Synergia Energy entered into an unsecured loan facility agreement with two of the JPDA joint venture partners, Japan Energy E&P JPDA Pty Ltd ("JX") and Pan Pacific Petroleum (JPDA 06 103) Pty Ltd ("PPP"). The portion which was owing to PPP was fully repaid in December 2021. The portion which was owing to JX was fully repaid on 10 August 2023 when the Company made its final repayment of US$228,324 to JX, to settle the balance of the loan to nil. The details and movement in the loan payable during the current period are detailed in Note 13 to the condensed consolidated interim financial report.

On 13 October 2022, the non-defaulting parties to the JPDA joint venture agreed to terminate the Joint Operating Agreement. During the half-year, Synergia Energy continued the process of progressing the final closure of the joint venture accounts to conclude this matter.

FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS

Income Statement

The Group incurred a consolidated loss after income tax of A$2,069,097 during the half-year ended 31 December 2023 (half-year ended 31 December 2022: A$3,674,813).

During the half-year, the Group recognised total revenues from gas and oil sales of A$353,168 (31 December 2022: A$690,820). These revenues are recognised net of royalties and levies imposed by the Government of India directly on gas and oil sales.

Net revenues from gas sales were A$248,931 (31 December 2022: A$396,767) which were from 20,882.01 MMBTU of energy supplied at an average price of US$8.59 per MMBTU (31 December 2022: from 34,325.03 MMBTU of energy supplied at an average price of US$7.91 per MMBTU).

Net revenues from oil sales were A$104,237 (31 December 2022: A$294,053) which were from 1,421.50 barrels sold at an average price of US$67.294 per barrel (31 December 2022: from 3,786.46 barrels sold at an average price of US$74.286 per barrel).

Cost of sales for the half-year were A$741,361 (31 December 2022: A$2,380,919) which included A$nil refraccing costs (31 December 2022:  included A$1,845,527 refraccing costs). This resulted in the Group incurring a gross loss of A$388,193 during the half-year (31 December 2022: A$1,690,099).

Expected credit losses ("ECLs") incurred during the half-year were A$196,268 (31 December 2022: A$22,712), mainly due to an increase recorded to recognise the ECL on the US$124,000 bank guarantee which was put in place by the Group on 28 July 2023 (refer to footnotes (2) and (3) of Note 7).

An impairment of A$34,593 (31 December 2022: A$nil) was recorded on the Company's investment in Armour Energy Limited ("Armour"), to bring this investment down to nil. The impairment assessment was based on Armour's circumstances at period end, having gone into receivership and administration in November 2023 (refer to Note 10).

Net finance income was A$77,388 (31 December 2022: net finance costs of A$236,516) which included a gain of A$876,069 (31 December 2022: A$nil) resulting from the fair value revaluation of the derivative liability component of the Group's convertible note. The fair value gain was offset by interest charges on borrowings of A$688,770 (31 December 2022: A$36,018), which included amortised effective interest charges on the convertible note of A$653,142 (31 December 2022: A$nil). This was also offset by the unwinding of discount on provisions of A$123,049 (31 December 2022: A$144,632). Net finance income also included a net foreign exchange gain of A$12,876 (31 December 2022: net foreign exchange loss of A$56,024).

Cash Flow

Net cash used in operating activities for the period was A$1,354,041 (31 December 2022: A$4,071,309). The decrease was primarily due to there being no refraccing costs to be paid during the period, when compared to the previous half-year period.

The Group invested A$575,444 across its development and exploration, evaluation and appraisal assets (31 December 2022: A$nil). Out of the A$575,444, A$411,477 was invested into an artificial lift system which was installed at the Cambay field in September 2023. The other A$163,967 was for payments relating to the CS019 licence for the Camelot area since NSTA granted the Group the licence effective 1 August 2023.

During the period, the Company raised funds net of costs of A$3,124,293 (31 December 2022: A$502,210) from the issue of 1,923,295,454 shares during the period (half-year ended 31 December 2022: issue of 174,831,394). A further A$235,405 was received after half-year end on 5 January 2024, for the issue of 156,250,000 shares in December. The total shares issued during the period was 2,079,545,454 ordinary shares.

The shares issued were from share placements held in July and in December. 704,545,454 shares were from the July share placement, which was issued on 7 August 2023 at £0.0011 (A$0.0021) per ordinary share. 1,375,000,000 shares were from the December share placement ("December Placement"), which was issued on 19 December 2023 at £0.0008 (A$0.0015) per ordinary share. The December Placement shares were ratified by shareholders at a General Meeting held by the Company held on 15 February 2024.

On 10 August 2023, the Company made the final loan repayment to JX of US$228,324 (A$348,853), settling the balance of the loan to nil.

Cash and cash equivalents were A$1,789,410 at the end of the period (at 31 December 2022: A$1,364,423).

Financial Position

The net assets of the Group totalled A$11,533,529 at 31 December 2023 (30 June 2023: A$10,337,516).

As at 31 December 2023, the Company had:

·    Available cash resources of A$1,789,410;

·    Borrowings (excluding derivative liability component of convertible notes) of A$1,108,873 (refer to Note 13);

·    Derivative liabilities (from convertible notes) of A$151,560 (refer to Note 14); and

·    Issued capital of 10,497,336,158 fully paid ordinary shares and 463,564,923 unlisted options.

MATERIAL UNCERTAINTY RELATED TO GOING CONCERN

The auditor's review report contains a statement of material uncertainty regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates continuity of normal business activities and the realisation of assets and settlement of liabilities in the ordinary course of business.

The funding requirements of the Group are reviewed on a regular basis by the Group's Executive Directors and are reported to the Board at each board meeting to ensure the Group can meet its financial obligations as and when they fall due.

Until sufficient operating cash flows are generated from its operations, the Group remains reliant on equity raisings, joint venture contributions or debt funding, as well as asset divestitures or farmouts to fund its expenditure commitments.

The Group may require additional funding in due course to continue its activities, including CCS, meet its ongoing working capital requirements (including any loans payable), and for any new business opportunities that the Group may pursue.

Further information on the Group's going concern basis of preparation is provided in Note 2(c) of the consolidated financial statements.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER BALANCE DATE

On 5 January 2024, the Company received the last instalment of the December Placement funds of £125,000.

On 23 January 2024, the Company entered into an additional bank guarantee for US$43,654, in favour of MOPNG to satisfy the Group's Cambay PSC bank guarantee requirements. Further details of those requirements are detailed in Note 16 to the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Report.

On 24 January 2024, Mr Schwarz was appointed as Deputy Chairman.

On 1 February 2024, one of the Group's inactive entities, Oilex (JPDA 06-103) Ltd, was deregistered. This entity had no assets at the time of deregistration.

On 14 February 2024, the Group entered into an agreement to farm out 50% of the Group's interest in the Cambay PSC to Selan Exploration Technology Limited, in exchange of an agreed US$20 million work programme as well as a cash payment of US$2.5 million. The agreement also entitles the Group to bonuses of up to US$9 million, linked to certain future cumulative gas sales thresholds being achieved. The agreement is subject to Government of India approval. See above for further information.

On 28 February 2024, following shareholder approval at a General Meeting held by the Company on 15 February 2024, the Company issued 1,375,000,000 unquoted options to the participants of the December Placement ("December Placement Options") and 82,500,000 unquoted options to Novum Securities Limited ("Novum") pursuant to the capital raising advisory agreement relating to the December Placement ("December Fee Options"). Both the December Placement Options and the December Fee Options are exercisable at £0.0014 per share on or before 31 December 2026.

In line with the 9 March 2024 maturity date of the 6,500 convertible loan notes issued by the Company effective 9 March 2023, the Company received notices from five of its seven convertible note holders that indicated their intention to (a) redeem their 5,430 notes and interest accrued into cash, and (b) extend the maturity to 30 September 2024 for 1,750 of the notes. The payments will amount to £386,451 (A$720,184) effective on 9 March 2024 and £188,688 (A$351,636) effective on 30 September 2024. The first tranche of payments will be paid in accordance with the convertible note agreements. The Company also received a notice from another of the convertible note holders indicating his intention to convert his 320 notes and interest into 42,005,479 ordinary shares of the Company effective 9 March 2024. The remaining convertible note holder did not provide any option or exercise notice to the Company by the exercise date and, in accordance with the convertible note agreement, the remainder of the 750 convertible notes plus interest will automatically convert into 98,450,342 ordinary shares of the Company effective 9 March 2024. The total shares from the conversion of the 1,070 convertible notes plus interest, being 140,455,821 ordinary shares, are expected to be issued, and admitted to trading on AIM, on or before 9 April 2024. Refer to Note 13 to the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Report for further details.

On 11 March 2024, the Company announced that it has obtained loan funding from existing investors of GBP400,000. The loan is interest bearing and is on commercial terms and on an unsecured basis.

There were no other significant subsequent events occurring after the half-year end.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL REPORT

FOR THE HALF-YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2023

 

1.   REPORTING ENTITY

Synergia Energy Ltd (the "Company") is a for-profit entity domiciled in Australia. The condensed consolidated interim financial report as at and for the half-year ended 31 December 2023 comprise the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively the "Group" and individually "Group Entities"). Synergia Energy Ltd is a company limited by shares incorporated in Australia whose shares are publicly traded on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange ("LSE").

The principal activities of the Group during the financial period included:

·    exploration for oil and gas;

·    appraisal and development of oil and gas prospects; and

·    production and sale of oil and gas.

The Group is also focused on carbon-neutral gas production and aims to become a major contributor to CO2 emission reduction by developing CCS projects, leveraging the extensive management experience in this sector.

There were no significant changes in the nature of the activities during the period.

The consolidated annual financial report of the Group as at and for the year ended 30 June 2023 is available upon request from the Company's registered office at Level 24, 44 St Georges Tce, Perth, Western Australia, 6000, Australia or at www.synergiaenergy.com.

2.   BASIS OF PREPARATION

(a)  Presentation Currency

The condensed consolidated interim financial report is presented in Australian Dollars ("A$"), unless otherwise stated.

(b) Statement of Compliance

The condensed consolidated interim financial report is a general purpose condensed financial report which has been prepared in accordance with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting (IFRS equivalent: IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting) and the Corporations Act 2001. The condensed consolidated interim financial report does not include all of the notes and information normally included in an annual financial report and accordingly this report should be read in conjunction with the consolidated annual financial report of the Group as at and for the year ended 30 June 2023.

The Company is a company of the kind referred to in ASIC Corporations (Rounding in Financials/Directors' Reports) Instrument 2016/191, dated 24 March 2016, and in accordance with that Corporations Instrument amounts in the half-year financial report are rounded off to the nearest dollar, unless otherwise indicated.

This condensed consolidated interim financial report was authorised for issue by the Board of Directors on 14 March 2024.

(c)  Going Concern Basis

The Directors believe it is appropriate to prepare the consolidated financial statements on a going concern basis, which contemplates continuity of normal business activities and the realisation of assets and settlement of liabilities in the ordinary course of business.

The Group incurred a loss of A$2,069,097 (31 December 2022: A$3,674,813) and had cash outflows from operating and investing activities of A$1,929,485 (31 December 2022: A$4,071,309) in the half-year to 31 December 2023. The Group concluded the half-year at 31 December 2023 with cash and cash equivalents of A$1,789,410 (30 June 2023: A$938,589) and had loans outstanding, including the derivative liability component of convertible notes, of A$1,260,433 (at 30 June 2023: A$1,825,000).

In addition, subsequent to the half-year, the Company received notices from five of its convertible note holders, which indicated their intention to (a) redeem their 5,430 notes and interest accrued into cash, and (b) extend the maturity to 30 September 2024 for 1,750 of the notes. The payments will amount to £386,451 (A$720,184) on 9 March 2024 and £188,688 (A$351,636) on 30 September 2024 (refer to Note 13 for further details). The first tranche of payments will be paid in accordance with the convertible note agreements.

On 11 March 2024, the Company also announced that it has obtained loan funding from existing investors of GBP400,000. The loan is interest bearing and is on commercial terms and on an unsecured basis.

The US$2.5 million cash payment from Selan Exploration Technology Limited ("Selan") that is part of the agreement to farm-out 50% of the Group's interest in the Cambay PSC is subject to Government of India approval and is receivable from Selan immediately after that.

The Group may require further funding within the next twelve months in order to continue its activities, including CCS, meet its ongoing working capital requirements (including any loans payable), and for any new business opportunities that the Group may pursue.

The Directors believe that the Group will be able to secure sufficient funding to meet the requirements to continue as a going concern, due to its history of previous capital raisings, acknowledging that the structure and timing of any capital raising is dependent upon investor support, prevailing capital markets, shareholder participation, oil and gas prices and the outcome of planned exploration, evaluation and appraisal activities, which creates uncertainty.

The Directors consider the going concern basis of preparation to be appropriate based on its forecast cash flows for the next twelve months and that the Group will be in a position to continue to meet its minimum administrative, evaluation and development expenditures and commitments for at least twelve months from the date of this report.

If further funds are not able to be raised or realised, then it may be necessary for the Group to sell or farmout its exploration, evaluation and appraisal and development assets and to reduce discretionary administrative expenditure.

The ability of the Group to achieve its forecast cash flows, particularly the raising of additional funds, represents a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about whether the Group can continue as a going concern, in which case it may not be able to realise its assets and extinguish its liabilities in the normal course of business and at the stated amounts in the financial statements.

3.   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accounting policies applied by the Group in this condensed consolidated interim financial report are the same as those applied by the Group in its consolidated financial report as at and for the year ended 30 June 2023.

New or Amended Accounting Standards and Interpretations Adopted

The Group has adopted all of the new or amended accounting standards, interpretations and other accounting pronouncements issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board ("AASB") that are effective for reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2023 and therefore mandatory for the current reporting period. The adoption of these accounting standards, interpretations and other accounting pronouncements did not have any significant impact on the financial performance or position of the Group.

Any new or amended accounting standards, interpretations and other accounting pronouncements issued by the AASB that are not yet mandatory for the current reporting period have not been early adopted.

4.   ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS

The preparation of a condensed consolidated interim financial report requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

In preparing this condensed consolidated interim financial report, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial report as at and for the year ended 30 June 2023.


5.   OPERATING SEGMENTS

The Group has identified its operating segments based upon the internal reports that are reviewed and used by the executive management team in assessing performance and that are used to allocate the Group's resources. There has been no change in the basis of segmentation from the Group's 30 June 2023 annual consolidated financial report.

1)     Relates to £125,000 of December Placement funds which was received after half-year end on 5 January 2024. Refer to Note 18, footnote (2).

2)     On 28 July 2023, the Group submitted a US$124,000 bank guarantee in favour of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas ("MOPNG") of the Government of India. Subsequent to the half-year on 23 January 2024, another US$43,654 bank guarantee was submitted in favour of MOPNG. The two amounts totalling US$167,654 fulfils the Cambay PSC requirements, which are detailed in Note 16. The amounts guaranteed include a 15% portion which was guaranteed on behalf of Oilex N.L. Holdings (India) Limited ("OHIL") for OHIL's share of the bank guarantee.

3)     A corresponding increase in expected credit losses was recorded as the bank guarantee is to remain in place and will not be received back by the Group as long as the Group holds the Cambay PSC.

 

The Group considers that there is evidence of impairment if any of the following indicators are present: financial difficulties of the debtor, probability that the debtor will dispute amounts owing and default or delinquency in payment (more than one year old). Each receivable has been assessed individually for recovery, and those deemed to have a low chance of recovery have been fully provided for in the current period. The movement in the Group's provision for expected credit losses ("ECLs") are detailed below. The carrying value of trade and other receivables less ECLs approximates its fair value due to the assessment of recoverability.

Prior to 1 August 2023, all costs incurred pertaining to obtaining the licence was expensed.

EEA assets are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. When EEA expenditure does not result in the successful discovery of potentially economically recoverable reserves or other assets, or if sufficient data exists to indicate the carrying amount of the EEA asset is unlikely to be recovered in full, either by development or sale, it is impaired.

Based on a review of key assumptions, no impairment indicators were identified as at 31 December 2023. As such no impairment charges were applied to the EEA asset during the half-year ended 31 December 2023.

The holders of the convertible notes had the option to convert the notes into ordinary share capital of the Company. This option was effective on 9 December 2023 and expired on 9 March 2024. See Note 13 for further details, including the notices of intention by five of the convertible note holders to redeem their notes, plus accrued interest, into cash. One of the convertible note holders also gave his notice to the Company indicating his intention to convert his 320 notes and interest into ordinary shares. The remaining convertible notes will automatically convert into ordinary shares effective 9 March 2024 in accordance with the convertible note agreement.

Fair Value Measurement

The fair value measurement of the derivative liability component has been determined using a three-level hierarchy, based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the entire fair value measurement, being:

Level 1:  Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets that the Group can access at the measurement date;

Level 2:  Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset, either directly or indirectly; and

Level 3:  Unobservable inputs for the liability.

The derivative liability is determined to be Level 2 and has been valued using quoted market prices at the end of the reporting period. This valuation technique maximises the use of observable market data where it is available and relies as little as possible on entity specific estimates.

Exploration, Evaluation and Appraisal Expenditure Commitments

In order to maintain rights of tenure to exploration, evaluation and appraisal permits, the Group is required to perform exploration, evaluation and appraisal work to meet the minimum expenditure requirements specified by various state and national governments.

The total of US$167,654 submitted up to January 2024 was reduced from the US$248,000 estimated as required and disclosed at 30 June 2023.

The bank guarantee amounts include a 15% portion which is guaranteed on behalf of OHIL for its share of the bank guarantee.

Required bank guarantee amounts are reassessed every year according to aspects of the work programme that have been fulfilled during the year, and according to aspects of the work programme that is planned to be fulfilled for the relevant upcoming year.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REVIEW REPORT

TO THE MEMBERS OF SYNERGIA ENERGY LTD

 

Report on the Half-Year Financial Report

 

Conclusion

We have reviewed the half-year financial report of Synergia Energy Ltd (the company) and controlled entities (consolidated entity) which comprises the consolidated statement of financial position as at 31 December 2023, the consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, the consolidated statement of changes in equity and the consolidated statement of cash flows for the half-year ended on that date, and notes to the financial statements, including material policy information and the directors' declaration of the consolidated entity comprising the company and the entities it controlled at 31 December 2023, or during the half year.

Based on our review, which is not an audit, we have not become aware of any matter that makes us believe that the accompanying half-year financial report of Synergia Energy Ltd is not in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 including:

 

(a)  giving a true and fair view of the consolidated entity's financial position as at 31 December 2023 and of its performance for the half-year ended on that date; and

 

(b)  complying with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the Corporations Regulations 2001.

Basis for Conclusion

We conducted our review in accordance with ASRE 2410 Review of a Financial Report Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity. Our responsibilities are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Review of the Financial Report section of our report.

Material Uncertainty Related to Going Concern

Without qualifying our conclusion, we draw attention to Note 2(c) in the financial report in which indicates that the consolidated entity incurred a net loss of $2,069,097 during the half year ended 31 December 2023 and had negative operating cashflow of $1,354,041. These conditions, along with other matters as set forth in Note 2(c), indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the consolidated entity's ability to continue as a going concern and therefore, the consolidated entity may be unable to realise its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business, and at the amounts stated in the financial report.

 

Independence

We are independent of the company in accordance with the auditor independence requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and the ethical requirements of the Accounting Professional and Ethical Standards Board's APES 110 Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including Independence Standards) (the Code) that are relevant to our audit of the annual financial report in Australia. We have also fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the Code.

 

Directors' Responsibility for the Interim Financial Report

The directors of the company are responsible for the preparation of the half-year financial report that gives a true and fair view in accordance with the Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Act 2001 and for such internal controls as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of the half-year financial report that gives a true and fair view and is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

 

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Review of the Financial Report

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the half-year financial report based on our review. ASRE 2410 requires us to conclude whether we have become aware of any matter that makes us believe that the half-year financial report is not in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 including: giving a true and fair view of the consolidated entity's financial position as at 31 December 2023 and its performance for the half year ended on that date; and complying with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the Corporation Regulations 2001.

 

A review of a half-year financial report consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

DEFINITIONS

 

Associated Gas

Natural gas found in contact with or dissolved in crude oil in the reservoir. It can be further categorised as Gas-Cap Gas or Solution Gas.

BCFE

Billion cubic feet equivalent of gas at standard temperature and pressure conditions.

BOE

Barrels of Oil Equivalent.  Converting gas volumes to the oil equivalent is customarily done on the basis of the nominal heating content or calorific value of the fuel. Common industry gas conversion factors usually range between 1 barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") = 5,600 standard cubic feet ("scf") of gas to 1 BOE = 6,000 scf. (Many operators use 1 BOE = 5,620 scf derived from the metric unit equivalent 1 m³ crude oil = 1,000 m³ natural gas).

BOEPD

Barrels of oil equivalent per day.

BOPD

Barrels of oil per day.

Contingent Resources

Those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations by application of development projects, but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable due to one or more contingencies.

Contingent Resources may include, for example, projects for which there are currently no viable markets, or where commercial recovery is dependent on technology under development, or where evaluation of the accumulation is insufficient to clearly assess commerciality.  Contingent Resources are further categorised in accordance with the level of certainty associated with the estimates and may be sub-classified based on project maturity and/or characterised by their economic status.

Discovered in place volume

FEED

Front End Engineering Design.

FISO

Floating injection, storage and offloading.

GOI

mD

Millidarcy - unit of permeability.

MD

Measured Depth.

MMbbls

Reserves

Reserves are those quantities of petroleum anticipated to be commercially recoverable by application of development projects to known accumulations from a given date forward under defined conditions.

Proved Reserves are those quantities of petroleum, which by analysis of geoscience and engineering data, can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be commercially recoverable, from a given date forward, from known reservoirs and under defined economic conditions, operating methods and government regulations.

Probable Reserves are those additional Reserves which analysis of geoscience and engineering data indicate are less likely to be recovered than Proved Reserves but more certain to be recovered than Possible Reserves.

Possible Reserves are those additional reserves which analysis of geoscience and engineering data indicate are less likely to be recoverable than Probable Reserves. Reserves are designated as 1P (Proved), 2P (Proved plus Probable) and 3P (Proved plus Probable plus Possible).

Probabilistic methods:

·    P90 refers to the quantity for which it is estimated there is at least a 90% probability the actual quantity recovered will equal or exceed.

·    P50 refers to the quantity for which it is estimated there is at least a 50% probability the actual quantity recovered will equal or exceed.

·    P10 refers to the quantity for which it is estimated there is at least a 10% probability the actual quantity recovered will equal or exceed.

SCF/BBL

Standard cubic feet (of gas) per barrel (of oil).

SCFD

Standard cubic feet (of gas) per day.

TCF

Trillion cubic feet of gas at standard temperature and pressure conditions.

Tight Gas Reservoir
