Eagle Ford Shale Oil and Gas Investment Opportunity
Are you seeking a better return on your oil and gas investment opportunities? While most of the oil and gas industry is in a downturn the saltwater disposal and drilling mud processing industry is still growing! Why? What most people don't know is that for every barrel of oil produced, an oil well also produces nine more barrels of saltwater. And, as an oil well ages, it produces more and more saltwater. The Eagle Ford Shale produces around 1 million barrels of oil per day, which means it also produces 9 million barrels per day of saltwater that needs to be cleaned and disposed. Fortress Environmental Services Oilfield Disposal Service Supercenters not only offer saltwater disposal and drilling mud processing, but they also offer commercial truck washes, fresh water fill ups, and tanker and frac tank wash outs. And while the oil bust is hurting most companies in the Eagle Ford Shale, it is actually helping Fortress because building new facilities is 50% cheaper than it was 2 years ago. Investing in oilfield disposal service now is cheap, but when oil prices come roaring back, and they always do, people who invest now when prices are low will make a lot of money when prices rise in the not to distant future. For more information, please visit http://fortressenviro.com to learn about the Fortress' operations; visit http://fortressenvironholdings.com for financial performance or http://rokyosi.com to learn how to make an investment.

Energy Markets: The Year Ahead for Oil, Gas and Renewables
Following a dismal 2017, oil prices have remained above $60 for most of this year as U.S. shale producers relentlessly maintain production levels, offsetting reductions by OPEC nations. Meanwhile, renewable sources like wind and solar energy continue to significantly disrupt traditional energy markets, even as the advent of shale production mitigates their near-term impact. Where are the investment opportunities and caveats, and how will they change if oil prices move higher or, as some predict, lower? Also, what are the geopolitical implications of the U.S. dethroning Russia as the world's largest oil producer, potentially as early as this year?

NAV Model (Oil & Gas): Production Decline Curve
When you're valuing an E&P (Exploration & Production) company, the Net Asset Value (NAV) Model is the key methodology. By http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" UNLIKE in a DCF, where cash flow growth is assumed into infinity, in a NAV model you assume the company's cash flows go to $0 eventually as it completely produces all of its reserves and has nothing left. A granular NAV model is complex, but it comes down to a 2-step process: Step 1: Model the company's existing production from wells it already has... and assume a decline rate for the annual production each year, also assuming commodity prices to determine revenue, and linking operating expenses to production and calculating cash flow like that. Step 2: Assume the company drills new wells in its PUD (Proved Undeveloped), PROB (Probable), and POSS (Possible) reserves. The second step involves dozens of sub-steps and assumptions, but here we're just going to focus on ONE small part of this process: estimating the decline rate of a new well the company drills. It starts off at a very high production rate, but then declines quickly within even the first year of its useful life - and we need to estimate the decline rates each year to build the rest of the model. You COULD do lots of complicated math, try fitting hyperbolic or exponential functions, run a regression analysis, etc., but we suggest a much simpler approach here: if the company doesn't disclose data on its decline rates for individual wells, find data from another company operating in the same region and fit it to your company's "average" wells. How to Do That: Step 1: Find the company's key data, such as the EUR per well and IP rate per well in the region you're looking at. Step 2: Now, see if the company discloses data on its own decline rates... if so, you're set! If not, or if it's not enough, find another company operating in the region that discloses more data (EQT here), and go to that company's investor presentations to get the numbers. Step 3: In the first year, assume that production is some % of 365 * IP Rate per Well... because there is a huge drop-off in daily production from Month 1 to Month 12 in that first year. EQT's data shows 45%; we assume 60% here since UPL has a slightly flatter decline curve. Step 4: Copy and paste the other company's decline rates into each year of your decline curve. Step 5: Enter the correct formula for calculating annual production each year AFTER the initial year... here: =MIN(AU129*(1+AT130),$AT$126-SUM(AU$129:AU129)) Want to take either Last Year Production * (1 + Decline Rate) (the first part), or the total remaining reserves in this well (the second part). Step 6: Set up Subtotal / Remainder / Total math and ensure that everything is produced. Step 7: "Fit the data" using Goal Seek and the Factor - multiply each decline rate by a certain factor and use Goal Seek (Alt + A + W + G) to solve for the factor that makes the Subtotal equal to the EUR. Step 8: Build in support for a different EUR by scaling the production up or down in the "Total" column. Step 9: Allocate the production to oil vs. gas. vs. NGLs. Step 10: Complete the Subtotal / Remainder / Total math at the bottom. What Next? Next, we'd complete this process for all the wells the company drills in every region, estimate revenue, expenses, and cash flow for each one, and then aggregate the discounted cash flow values in every region across all reserve types... Which brings us closer to the implied NAV per share, which is what the NAV model is really all about. Stay tuned for more!
Shale Oil Is a Ponzi Scheme Bcause of Its Unique Production Process
Shale oil is unique in the way it is produced because it yields a very front-loaded result. Shale producers get 50% or more their oil in the first year that a well is in service. The companies continuously drill new wells to be at peak production levels and keep the cash flow strong. As a result, there has been a massive amount of capital that has come into the market to chase these investments. Ultimately what happens is something that Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn spoke about at the Sohn Investment Conference in May in terms of enterprise and capital inflows and outflows. Essentially, the industry looks at cash coming out of the business and doesn't look at the cash that has to go into the business. Dan Dicker, senior energy analyst at TheStreet, tells Jill Malandrino that he likens shale oil to a Ponzi Scheme. Fundamentally, the oil supply glut remains strained. As crude moves lower, producers dial back on production and hope for a demand increase and draw downs in supply. But when crude moves higher, producers rush to get wells back on line flooding the market with new product which stresses the supply glut.

For more information about how you can invest in the American shale revolution, contact Patriot Energy at 469-269-5414 or visit http://www.patriotenergy.com/contact. HOME PAGE Oil & Gas Royaties Patriot Royalties is a leading specialist in acquiring and packaging quality oil and gas royalty interests for accredited investors. Would monthly income benefit your investment strategy? Call us to learn more. Patriot Royalties specializes in seeking and acquiring royalty interests for investment portfolios, including 1031 tax exchanges. INVEST IN ROYALTIES Royalty interests are akin to what landowners receive. Royalty interests are based on the gross revenue from the well and not subject to operation costs. DIVERSIFICATION Patriot Royalties seeks assets with a stable production history and growth potential and packages these for accredited investors. 1031 EXCHAGES This section is a resource of information if you are selling investment real estate and need to consider oil and gas royalties as a 1031 exchange. ABOUT US Our experienced team at Patriot Royalties, Inc. assembles portfolios of high-quality oil and gas royalties from across America and makes them available to accredited investors, trusts, partnerships, corporations and as 1031 tax exchanges. Our staff has years of experience calculating the income potential and anticipated oil and gas reserves of all our royalty properties. We also specialize in assisting real estate investors who are selling investment property and need to consider a 1031 Exchange. Oil and gas royalties qualify as “like kind” under Section 1031 of the IRS Tax Code. Royalty ownership is considered “fractional interest” and is thus similar to tenant-in-common real estate and qualifies as a “like kind” exchange. Many real estate investors don’t want to immediately replace the property they are selling with another piece of property that might be elevated in price, and are thus turning to oil and gas royalties, mineral interests, and Overriding Royalty Interests as a way to generate similar income, plus enjoying diversification by adding oil and gas investments to their portfolios. We specialize in packaging portfolios of oil and gas royalties for diversification and to help minimize risk, making these unique vehicles available to accredited investors, institutional investors, partnerships, trusts and other entities seeking to add a consistent stream of royalty income to their portfolios. INVESTING IN OIL AND GAS ROYALTIES Patriot Energy Offers Many Oil and Gas Royalty Benefits Including Tax Benefits Around here we love the following slogan: “American Oil From American Soil”. That just about says it all. For decades, we have been under the chokehold of foreign oil. Whether you lined up for gasoline during the 1973 oil embargo, or simply realize that America has been virtually totally reliant on buying oil from countries that fund terrorism and literally hate America. Until now. With the advent of hydraulic fracturing, there are literally billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas that geologists knew was there, but believed was encased in rock that was too thick to produce. There’s something particular and unique about oil and gas in America that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world. It’s the landowner’s right to own the mineral rights beneath the surface. This unique privilege has allowed many American landowners the ability to generate substantial extra income, simply because an oil and gas company found oil or natural gas under their land. Here’s the good part: Royalties are often traded like any other asset. Sometimes people just need cash, and they’ll offer their mineral rights out to raise capital. The same is often true for oil and gas producers, who will liquidate their royalties now in order to raise capital for future drilling projects. Patriot Energy has developed a specialty in building portfolios of oil and gas royalties for our investors. These assets involve known production. There’s no speculation whether the well will hit or not, or how much production you’ll receive. These numbers are already known. You simply own the same right as the landowner – the privilege only America offers – to receive monthly income from oil and gas royalties. Patriot Energy creates diversified portfolios of wells and makes them available to accredited individuals, partnerships, corporations, foundations and other entities looking to add income to their portfolios. Today, savvy investors know that oil and gas royalties can often offer better yields than bonds, and have been aggressively turning to royalties for the income side of their portfolios.
French Total Will Invest In United Kingdom Shale Gas Industry
French oil and gas company Total is to invest in the UK's shale gas industry, it is to be announced on Monday. Total will be the first of the so-called "oil majors" to invest in shale gas in the UK, the BBC has confirmed. The British Geological Survey estimates there may be 1,300 trillion cubic feet of shale gas present in the north of England. But the process to extract shale gas - called "fracking" - has proved controversial. Fracking - short for "hydraulic fracturing" - involves drilling deep underground and releasing a high-pressure mix of water, sand and chemicals to crack rocks and release gas stored inside. Total is to spend tens of millions of pounds buying substantial stakes in firms with drilling licences in the north of England, where other large energy firms such as Centrica and Gaz de France have already invested. It comes as the government is expected to introduce more incentives to encourage local authorities to allow drilling for shale gas, according to environmental campaigners Greenpeace. Under the measures, local authorities would keep all income from business rates paid by companies drilling for shale gas, instead of giving it to the UK treasury. In December, a report commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), said more than half of the UK could be suitable for fracking. The process has attracted anti-fracking protests in the UK, with environmentalists fearing the technique could cause small earth tremors, water contamination and environmental damage. But the BBC's Joe Lynam said the announcement will be welcomed by the government which has championed shale gas as a major source of the UK's future energy needs. Our correspondent said Total's entry into the UK's shale gas market is not insignificant and the other four major oil and gas companies could follow. If Britain can extract 10% of its estimated gas reserves, it could supply the entire country for 50 years, our correspondent said. In August, Prime Minister David Cameron said the whole country should support fracking, insisting it is safe if properly regulated and could create thousands of jobs and reduce energy bills. Shale gas has helped boost the domestic energy industry in the US in recent years, where oil production has risen and gas prices have plummeted. Major oil companies waited for more than five years before investing in shale gas production in the US, but the UK will receive this major oil and gas company backing while the industry is still in its infancy. Senior government sources told the BBC that the Total investment was a strong vote of confidence in the sector. That view was echoed by business lobby group, the Institute of Directors, which said shale gas could be a "New North Sea" for Britain. However, Greenpeace climate campaigner Lawrence Carter, said: "Total, a French company who can't frack in their own country because the French government has stopped the French countryside being ripped up have now turned their sights on the UK countryside where the UK government seem happy to allow the industrialisation of our green and pleasant land. He said the UK government "are pushing ahead with selling off two-thirds of Britain for drilling without a public mandate". Mr Carter said the government was "resorting to straight-up bribery" by allowing local authorities to keep all of the business rate income from companies drilling for shale gas. The UK currently consumes only three trillion cubic feet of gas annually. The government previously unveiled a package of reforms to encourage development in the industry. They included new planning guidelines to make the process of approving new drilling sites more streamlined, and a consultation on tax incentives to encourage exploration. Communities affected by shale gas drilling are also expected to receive £100,000 in "community benefits" and 1% of production revenues, should sites start producing gas. Total has 97,000 employees operating in more than 130 countries. According to its website, it is the world's fifth largest publicly traded oil company.

Unconventional Oil & Gas in Argentina
Under President Mauricio Marci, Argentina’s government has sought to open its economy to trade and investment and boost oil and gas production by liberalizing energy prices and increasing foreign investment, with a goal of attracting $30 billion in investment over the next five years. Argentina, which holds the largest estimated shale gas reserves and second largest tight oil reserves in the Western Hemisphere, is the only Latin American country currently producing commercial quantities of oil from shale deposits. The Vaca Muerta shale play, with proven reserves of 927 million barrels, in western Neuquén province has attracted interest from domestic companies, such as national oil giant YPF, as well as international oil companies. Yet the country faces further challenges to develop its shale resources, such as negotiations with labor unions, environmental regulation, and relations with local communities. The Inter-American Dialogue is pleased to host a panel discussion to analyze Argentina’s oil production. Remarks from the panelists will be followed by an open discussion with participants.

That was the topic of debate at a Comment Visions forum in Brussels, which was organised by Royal Dutch Shell and Euronews. EU policy-makers wonder if fracking - pumping water and chemicals into shale rock at pressure - could also drive down prices on this side of the Atlantic. French researcher Raymond Michels explained many people oppose the use of fossil fuels due to fears about CO2 levels. "Then there are some who oppose shale gas exploration because the are concerned about the risk to drinking water or the general industrial risk around this kind of activity," said Michels, who is with France's National Centre for Scientific Research. Opponents say dangerous chemicals can seep into the ground during the fracking process. They also argue it diverts investor attention away from alternative sources. But Czech MEP Jan Brezina said you cannot rely too much on renewables. "If you take in account renewables, it's necessary to have some energy resources to support it and it's in any case better [to use] shale gas than for instance coal," he said It is up to EU member states to decide.

Investment in Sustainable Fracking Technology
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-trading/investment-in-sustainable-fracking-technology Investment in Sustainable Fracking Technology By www.ProfitableInvestingtips.com The United States is in the midst of an oil and natural gas boom. A new technology called hydraulic fracturing, fracking for short, is making that possible. The government has only recently tightened regulations meant to reduce air pollution that occurs in the last stages of drilling an oil or gas well. This investment in sustainable fracking technology is meant to keep the oil and gas boom going while avoiding excessive pollution by methane and other greenhouse gases. Currently these gasses can be released from wellheads once oil and or gas is discovered and before the well is set up for production. A leader in the use of and investment in sustainable fracking technology is ExxonMobil. Although the oil giant worked with this technology more than thirty years ago it chose to purchase XTO Energy, a natural gas producer with extensive expertise in hydraulic fracturing. The price tag was $45 Billion. For those investing in oil, an appreciation of the advantages, risks, and price tag of an investment in sustainable fracking technology is important. What Fracking Does for United States Energy Reserves, the Economy, and Oil Company Profits At the turn of the millennium many experts believed that the USA had run out of reserves of natural gas that were recoverable at a reasonable price tag. As fracking technology has been applied to shale deposits across the nation natural gas production has gone up by a forth just since 2005. A third of natural gas production comes from shale deposits and reliable estimates are that in twenty years nearly two-thirds of US natural gas will come from shale deposits via fracking technology. Current estimates are that the USA has a century of natural gas reserves recoverable by current technology. The natural gas industry itself employs two thirds of a million people and is a $118 Billion a year business that is growing in leaps and bounds at a time when the recovering US economy is glad to have more jobs. And, ExxonMobil profits have gone up again making it the world's largest corporation by value. Their investment in sustainable fracking technology, mostly by purchasing XTO Energy, has paid off. In the game of picking new winners in the stock market, investment in sustainable fracking technology looks promising. Fracking Concerns The Obama administration has just announced regulations that will compel drillers to deal with greenhouse gases that emerge from the wellhead during the later stages of drilling. These regulations are already in place through state policy in Colorado and Wyoming so the work and don't seem to get in the way of the oil and gas boom. Because technology to trap emerging gases is not readily available at every wellhead the government is giving drillers a three year grace period during which they may burn off excess gases. Thereafter investment in sustainable fracking technology that include the trapping of escaping gases will be mandatory. Another aspect of hydraulic fracturing that scares environmentalists is contamination of water supplies. Advances in technology such as encasing the drilling apparatus in cement encircled steel pipe is meant to reduce the chance of water table contamination. Also, most of the oil and gas with which the drillers are concerned is commonly very far below the water table. A little investment research into who does what in the oil and gas industry and who is successfully applying fracking technology could be profitable for both the long and short term investor.

Algeria's Energy Bounty - No 1 Gas Producer (CNN, 17Apr14)
Algeria relies on production from maturing oil and natural gas fields and wants to bring foreign investors in to help exploit new resource deposits. Laws passed last year offer tax incentives for foreign companies and the government said there may be opportunities for shale oil and natural gas. For energy companies focused on Middle East and North Africa, Algeria may be emerging as a bright spot for investment. Oil production from Libya has nearly doubled since December, but its output is far below the 1.6 million bpd from before the civil war. Frontier areas off the coast of West Africa, meanwhile, are generating attention, but development there is years away. Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who steered his country through civil war and the Arab Spring relatively unscathed, said presidential elections are scheduled for April. If the 76-year-old incumbent chooses to run, he'd almost certainly be handed a fourth term in office. If he doesn't, political transition should be relatively smooth nonetheless. Unlike its neighbors, Algeria experienced its own turmoil decades ago and the political elite can't risk another back slide. For foreign energy companies waiting in the wings, Algeria's evolution may be the best option for an otherwise questionable regional market. http://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Algeria-Ready-for-Oil-and-Gas-Return.html

Shale Gas Development in Ohio and Environmental Justice
Areas in Ohio are experiencing a surge in the development of unconventional sources of fossil fuels, especially the use of hydraulic fracturing (HF) technologies to gain access to natural gas trapped in shale rock. HF combines horizontal drilling with an extremely high-pressure injection of “brine” deep underground that fractures shale rock and releases trapped bubbles of gas that then rise to the surface. This panel will explore the environmental, economic and social burdens and benefits of this development. It will ask whether these burdens and benefits are being shared in an equitable way and whether those who are most affected have the opportunity for fair and meaningful participation in decision-making regarding HF. Participants: Kathy Braiser (Associate Professor of Rural Sociology Penn State) via Skype Scott Kell (Assistant Chief, ODNR Division of Oil & Gas Resources) Greg Pace (Board of Directors, Ohio Community Rights Network, Guernsey County Citizens Support on Drilling Issues) Christopher Penrose (Associate Professor, OSU Extension Shale Education Program) Rhonda Reda (Executive Director, Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program)
Calls for shale gas at energy security conference in Seoul 

글로벌 에너지안보 컨퍼런스서 급변하
Experts and business executives gathered in Seoul today for a conference on energy security. A call for shale gas was chief among the topics up for debate. Connie Kim reports. Korean companies are facing numerous challenges in light of the global transition to a low-carbon economy. They also stand to benefit from an increasing array of opportunities. These issues were the focus of the fourth Global Energy Security Conference hosted by Korea′s foreign ministry. ″Korea depends on imports for 96% of its energy consumption. It is important to acquire stable energy resources, as it′s fundamental to national development and linked to national security.″ Currently, fossil fuels are the principle source of energy in Korea. But at the conference, there were calls for shale gas. This is a natural gas found trapped within shale formations. One energy expert called it a game changer for the energy industry. ″We are already seeing the impact of U.S. shale gas production on LNG prices in Korea. You add Chinese shale gas supplies and you add Argentinian gas supply. It′s going to have a positive economic impact on Korea, which uses natural gas.″ But some experts said it′s going to take time, and more investment, for shale gas to become more mainstream. ″Shale basins in the U.S. have been around and people have the data for that basin for hundreds of years. The only other basin in the world that people have data for in the world is Argentina.″ Despite the high cost, many experts said one of the biggest benefits is the short exploration and production process of at least two months. Aside from shale, some of the other topics of debate at the conference were the lifting of sanctions on Iran and the impact of sanctions on the Russian energy industry. ″Korean officials believe the discussions held during the conference have laid the groundwork for the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

Interview with oil and gas broker Arthur Nasis an about investment opportunities in the Eagle Ford Shale, south of San Antonio. A little background in oil and gas wells. As a real estate broker and preparing income tax in 1978, I received my Texas Securities License in Oil & Gas and Investments shortly thereafter. I surrounded myself in the industry and became familiar in contracts, leases, partnerships, and different ownership in oil and gas wells. I assisted an oil company putting their interest and holdings in various oil and gas wells into the penny stock market in Denver. In my income tax practice I became familiar with the many federal income tax benefits or write off. As a Mortgage banker and Licensed Mortgage broker I work with individuals and their companies in return of investments, rate of returns, compounding interest, residual income and creating business and exit strategies. In owning different companies and for myself, I studied and research different risk and benefits in various areas in real estate, stocks, annuities, and oil and gas. I surrounded myself with real estate associates, bankers, pension planners, financial planners, CPA, enrolled agents, and income tax preparers. I learned a lot with our daughter being employed by Valero energy and our son as a tax accountant and tax manager working with many clientele owning and being involved oil and gas interest. My advantage in almost forty years in business is my vast experiences with so many contacts and acquaintances.

Jim Roddey, Simon Tripp: Energy Jobs & Investment Are About More than the Marcellus Shale
Energy-related jobs and investment in southwestern Pennsylvania are not just about the Marcellus Shale natural gas play. Simon Tripp of the Battelle Group says that there are 7,000 in renewable energy space in the region. Businessman and former Allegheny County Executive Jim Roddey noted that while the region is strong in the coal, natural gas and nuclear energy sources and know-how, we're also emerging as a leader in solar, wind, intelligent building and distribution and transmission.

US/Argentine oil officials discuss $1.5 billion deal to exploit shale gas reserves
Executives from the US oil giant Chevron and Argentina's state-owned oil company YPF held a news conference in Buenos Aires on Thursday to discuss their 1.5 (b) billion US dollar deal to exploit shale-oil reserves. Ali Moshiri, president of Chevron for Africa and Latin America, said the joint exploitation of the Vaca Muerta shale-oil basin will be beneficial to its shareholders. "Our business is going to go where the resources are," he told reporters. "Where there are resources, we put the resources next to the risks." Miguel Galuccio, chief executive of YPF, said Argentina has a "serious energy deficit and if we don't do something today, the situation in the future will somehow worsen". "A year ago we proposed as part of our strategic plan the search for a partner to secure a major investment in one of the unconventional oil reserves," he added. The Vaca Muerta shale-oil basin contains the world's third-largest unconventional oil and gas reserves. It's located in the Neuquen province, about 1,156 kilometres (718 miles) from Buenos Aires. The area is home to many Mapuche indigenous communities who have protested against the deal. The YPF-Chevron venture will start with a 300 (m) million US dollar hydraulic fracturing pilot project, involving more than 100 wells. The deal between Chevron and the Cristina Fernandez administration is the biggest foreign investment that Argentina has attracted since expropriating YPF from control of the Spanish company Grupo Repsol last year. Repsol is demanding 10 (b) billion US dollars in compensation and threatens to sue any oil company that takes over the wells.

UK homegrown shale gas can provide 64,000 jobs, tax revenue and local investment - so let's back it
© UK Onshore Oil & Gas 2017 Our growing UK shale gas industry could provide 64,000 jobs, a new stream of tax revenue and local investment direct to the communities that host production. But at the moment, we import almost half of our natural gas from overseas, at both a detriment to the environment and our public purse. While we delay, UK jobs and investment are held up overseas, as our import dependency continues to grow. Let's back fracking and start bringing home these benefits.

Oil & Gas Stock Pitch: How to Research and Present It
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to research, structure, and present an oil & gas stock pitch. More at http://www.mergersandinquisitions.com/oil-gas-stock-pitch/ You'll also learn how it's different from investment recommendations and stock pitches in other industries. We'll use Ultra Petroleum [UPL] as the example company, and present a SHORT recommendation based on a detailed analysis of their filings, investor presentations, and earnings call transcripts, along with a complex Net Asset Value (NAV) Model, based on individual wells drilled in different regions. Table of Contents: 1:19 The Structure of an Oil & Gas Stock Pitch 3:15 Investment Thesis 6:19 Catalysts 10:42 Valuation 13:38 Risk Factors 15:51 Why This Recommendation Was Wrong 19:25 Recap and Summary Investment Thesis Why is the company mis-priced? How does the market view it, and why is everyone else wrong? Here, we cite 3 reasons: 1. The company has overstated its average EUR per well in some regions, which means its reserves may be overstated or otherwise inaccurate. 2. Cutting capital expenditures (D&C Costs) and operating expenses (LOE) over time makes less of an impact on the company's implied value than they claim it does - being a low-cost producer is nice, but even substantial reductions over time don't boost the value by all that much. 3. Drilling in Pennsylvania may be stopped or reduced due to the company's JV partners, and the market hasn't yet factored in the chances of that happening and the impact on the company's implied value. Catalysts A few examples of potential catalysts: Oil & Gas-Specific: Reserve Reports / Drill Results, Well Drilling Schedules / Expanded or Reduced Drilling, Produce / No Produce Decisions, New Technology Deployment to reduce D&C Costs, Improved Well Spacing, Pipeline Developments, Hedging Contract Changes More Generic: Geographic Expansion, Acquisitions or Divestitures, Earnings Announcements, Competitors' Activities, Financing Activities For UPL, we use these 3 catalysts: 1. The close of the $650 million Uinta Basin acquisition. 2. The release of new reserve reports from the company's existing regions. 3. The possible halt to drilling in the Marcellus shale of Pennsylvania. For each one, we show the implied per share impact on the company based on the NAV model. Valuation We use the NAV model here, lay out our assumptions in the beginning, and then mostly focus on the OUTPUT of the model to avoid pasting in sheets and sheets of Excel. With the NAV Model, you split the company into existing production (PDP and PDNP) and new production (PUD, PROB, and POSS), make "high-level" estimates for the existing production, and assume a decline rate over time. For the others, assume that a certain # of new wells are drilled each year, assume that they start producing at a certain level and then decline to 0 over time, and then project the revenue, expenses, CapEx, and cash flow for each region and reserve type... Finally, you sum up everything at the end. The main point is to show that the assumption we're MOST uncertain of - EUR per well - makes a huge difference on the valuation... ...While other assumptions, such as the D&C Costs and LOE per well, make a smaller difference and so it doesn't matter much even if the company can reduce those costs. Risk Factors You can "reverse" the catalysts and ask, "What happens if this catalyst does NOT happen, or what if the results are different than expected?" Our top risk factors are: 1. The $650 million Uinta Basin acquisition fails to close. 2. Even if the acquisition does close, initial drilling reports might be positive and indicate higher-than-expected reserve levels. 3. Full drilling continues in the Marcellus shale as natural gas prices recover. 4. The company's improved well spacing pilots prove successful, and it is able to increase its effective EUR per well. So the first 3 are "reversals" of the catalysts, and we therefore also assess the implied per share impact from them. The last risk factor is more of an "X Factor" type of item that might cause the company's reserves to jump up dramatically if executed well. Why This Recommendation Was Wrong First off, gas prices spiked up to very high levels ($7.00 - $8.00) due to an unusually cold winter. That killed the "Short" recommendation since all oil & gas companies become more valuable when commodity prices spike up. Next, the company beat revenue and EPS consensus estimates twice in the past 6-7 months after this pitch; equity research analysts also upgraded their ratings on the stock. Finally, the stock had already fallen substantially in the past 2-3 years before this... so our timing wasn't great. How to Avoid Disaster: We recommended setting a buy-stop order at $23.00 - $24.00 / share to limit our losses. That would have limited our losses to ~25%.
Mexico's largest shale and gas reserves now open to private investors
Mexico is stepping up efforts to protect its oil industry and tame the brutal drug cartels that rule its rich shale fields along the Gulf Coast and are stealing billions of dollars worth of oil from pipelines. Figures released by Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Mexico's state-owned company last week showed the gangs are becoming more prolific and sophisticated. Just in 2014, thieves across Mexico have drilled 2,481 illegal taps into state-owned pipelines. The Zetas and the Gulf cartel, two rival gangs, use Tamaulipas, the state where Ciudad Victoria and Ciudad Mier are located, as a route to ferry drugs and migrants to the US. They have diversified their business, selling stolen gas and crude to refineries in Texas or to gas stations on either side of the border. In Tamaulipas, Mexico has placed military leaders in charge of the security, sending soldiers, marines and federal police to patrol key cities. Army Colonel Juan Carlos Guzman, in charge of security in the capital of Tamaulipas, Ciudad Victoria said that at least twice a day gangs pull up to one of the hundreds of pipelines that crisscross the state. Guzman also pointed out however that because the cartels have "falcons" - the lowest level members who are the eyes and ears of the streets - they never get caught when authorities are nearby. More than a fifth of the illegal taps occurred in Tamaulipas, the gulf state neighbouring Texas, that is a cornerstone for Mexico's future oil plans. But the army's presence has effectively torn apart gangs' structure and operations. Edna Ramos runs a small shop near the centre of Ciudad Mier, and said she feels safe again living in her hometown. Arrests and violence have taken out many key cartel leaders, but the main problem people still face is the reputation Tamaulipas has, which prevents some from making a proper living in what once was their home.

Encana putting Duvernay gas plant on hold, uncertain of investing in AB
VISIT TheRebel.media for more fearless daily news, commentary and activism: http://www.TheRebel.media http://www.Facebook.com/JoinTheRebel http://www.Twitter.com/TheRebelTV ***** Sheila Gunn Reid of TheRebel.Media reports, another day, another cancelled project in Alberta's embattled oil patch. This time, it was Encana putting their gas plant in the Duvernay Region on hold. The company says it's because they are unsure about the outcome of the Notley government’s climate change and royalty review panels. Encana CEO Doug Suttles said, “We need to know the rules of the game before we start to play.” Encana, on Thursday reported a loss of 1.2 billion in the last 3 month reporting period. Encana has also laid off 40 percent of its staff since 2012 including about 400 employees this year. Encana is withholding investment in Alberta. And if you think it’s about the price of oil or natural gas alone, you’d be wrong. Encana is refocusing its business interests in Texas, spending about 2.2 billion dollars there this year. That’s no surprise. Texas has a stable business environment with low taxation of businesses. Texas doesn’t have a carbon tax and Texas has a flat rate reliable royalty total rate of 25.3 percent, with 12.5 percent to the landowner and 12.85 percent to the state. Texas offers stability. It’s easy to build a business plan around stability but Alberta doesn’t offer stability anymore. If someone wanted to sabotage the oil patch, they'd do exactly what Rachel Notley is doing.

INEOS Shale Press Conference 03.12.14
On the 20th November 2014 INEOS held a historic press conference where it announced that it was planning to invest $1 billion in UK onshore Shale gas exploration and appraisal. Substantial further investment would follow if the company moved into development and production. If INEOS wins all the Petroleum Exploration and Development licences (PEDLs) it has bid for from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC), the company would become the biggest player in the UK’s Shale gas industry.

Shale gas in the UK: a heated debate
The British Geological Survey announced that shale gas deposits in the north of England are twice the size than previously thought. This is good news for the British industry who has seen North Sea oil and gas reserves dwindle in the pas fifteen years. This is especially good news for Cuadrilla Resources, the only company that has drilled for shale gas in the UK. Shale gas exploration is not without controversy though. A test drill by Cuadrilla caused two earth tremors in 2011 that damaged the well. Local residents fear that this could to groundwater pollution.
