Samson Oil and Gas Limited (“Samson” or the “Company”) (www.samsonoilandgas.com
) is an Australian oil and gas company headquartered in Denver, Colorado holding an extensive portfolio of exploration and development properties in Wyoming, New Mexico, Oklahoma and North Dakota. Samson has been operating in the US since 2004, when it acquired Kestrel Energy, Inc. (“Kestrel”), a Colorado based public company with properties in the Green River Basin in Wyoming, which has gradually become the new frontier for oil and gas discoveries in the US. Currently the fastest growing gas province nationwide, the Green River Basin is expected to become one of the biggest gas producing regions in North America. The Company’s position in the US market was strengthened by subsequent acquisitions of various properties, including gas producing fields acquired from Stanley Energy Inc. (“Stanley”) in May 2006, which increased the Company’s acreage in the Green River Basin to 42,000 net acres.
During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, which included only one month of production from the recently acquired fields, the Company produced a cumulative of 16,837 barrels of oil and 0.42 bcf of gas totaling 0.52 bcfe. The fiscal year end revenues in 2006 reached approximately US$4,268,000, growing over 385% from about US$879,000 in 2005. The revenues in the most recent quarter ended September 30, 2006 were approximately US$1,855,000. Having significantly strengthened its proved reserve base to 23.2 bcfe as of September 30, 2006, the Company continues to expand its production, which for the fiscal 2007 year is expected to grow to around 2.1 bcfe. Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) under the symbol SSN, the Company has a valuable inventory of assets, both currently producing and with proved undeveloped resources, positioning it to become a significant player in the robust Rocky Mountain region of the US gas and oil industry.
Continental Energy Corporation (www.continentalenergy.com
) (Continental or the “Company”) is a Dallas, Texas based independent oil and gas exploration company focused on large commercial discoveries in Indonesia. Its current prospect inventory is in the prolific Bengara-II Block, which is known for still unexploited oil and gas reserves. The Company recently signed an agreement with CNPCHK (Indonesia) Limited (CNPC) to develop Bengara-II Block. CNPC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Kong listed China National Petroleum Company (Hong Kong) Limited. Continental is a Canadian issuer listed on the OTC Bulletin Board and is trading under the symbol CPPXF.
Much of Continental’s current focus is the exploration and development of its interests in the Bengara-II Block. CNPC together with its partners Continental and Resources Company (GeoPetro) has exclusive petroleum exploration and production rights to this nine hundred thousand-acre block, located in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The East Kalimantan region (together with Aceh, Irian Jaya, Java and Sumatra) is one of the primary oil rich areas in Indonesia and currently has several oil producing basins. Its main basins include the Tarakan Basin and the Kutei Basin. The Bengara-II is located in the Tarakan Basin.
The main oil companies in East Kalimantan include Exxon/Mobil (NYSE: XOM), Total-Fina-Elf partnership, China National Offshore Oil Corp. (HK/NYSE: CNOOC), Arco (a subsidiary of British Petroleum – LSE: BP). Arco’s main focus is in smaller fields and Unocal (a Chevron company – NYSE: CVX). Unocal’s West Seno field, offshore from East Kalimantan, currently produces 14,000 bpd oil and 18 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day gas. This field is expected to produce 60,000 barrels per day of oil and 150 million cubic feet of gas per day on completion of the second phase. The region is widely believed to be highly prolific with enough reserves to host an economic oil and gas operation.
Continental can be viewed as an investment opportunity that provides speculative exposure to the oil and gas sector in Indonesia. As much of its main fields mature, future Indonesian oil output is expected to come from smaller oil fields. Economics of smaller fields generally suit smaller companies with lean cost structures, as they can remain profitable even with a relatively lower production. Continental represents the new generation of oil and gas companies in Indonesia.
Despite the relatively volatile and risky political environment as well as generally mature oil fields, Indonesia continues to attract investments from foreign companies to develop its oil resources. High oil prices (which make exploration and development worthwhile) and its proximity to fast growing Chinese and Indian economies are viewed as the main reasons behind the continued interest. The industry further benefits from its ongoing reforms instigated by the Indonesian government. Continental benefits from these reforms with favorable contract terms as well as the assurance of minimum state interference.
The recent agreement with CNPC further reduces the risk profile of Continental. CNPC is expected to develop the Bengara-II Block following an agreement with the Company and has acquired 70% of the Bengara-II project.
