Quarterly Report Update
Summary Key Points
Cliff Head production report at 99,860 bbls for the quarter: TEG announced that for the September quarter Cliff Head produced 99,860 bbls of oil which resulted in oil sales of AU$6.361m in revenue. Of this revenue, AU$5.0m is attributable to TEG.
Cliff Head revitalisation is targeting 8mmbls of resources: TEG has announced that it is working on near-term upside opportunities for the Cliff Head field. It believes these opportunities could add 8mmbbls to the resource base of Cliff Head.
A positive oil price environment: Our TEG valuation is based on a US$50 Brent oil price and the Brent oil price is currently above US$60 per barrel which is a level that the oil price has not achieved since mid-2015.
Testing of the Xanadu Oil confirms quality: The test results on the oil recovered from the Xanadu-1 well have shown it to be similar to the oil from the nearby Cliff Head field. Therefore it will be possible to treat the crude at the Arrowsmith plant without any major changes to the current process. The testing also confirmed the oil is a high-quality crude at 34o API. The crude will, therefore, attract a good price from refiners.
Xanadu appraisal program announced: The partners in the Xanadu discovery have also announced the appraisal plans for the next few months. The JV expects to complete the seismic early in the new year as well as the drilling of a side-track well to further test sands discovered in the Xanadu-1 well.
In our view, TEG has a lot of news flow to come over the next few months as the company tackles the Cliff Head infill program and the appraisal of Xanadu. TEG is also working on driving the costs of production down, and this may well create a positive “jaws” going forward of increasing stable oil prices and falling costs, which will lead to increased free cash flow. This free cash can then be reinvested into the Cliff Head and Xanadu creating further value for shareholders from Cliff Head and Xanadu.
Recommendation and Valuation
We maintain our BUY recommendation and a $0.35 price target. Our price target is slightly lower due to the drop in the GAS share price from $0.35 to $0.31 valuing TEG’s GAS stake at $14.8m. However, TEG at $0.16 remains very undervalued when one takes the potential of Cliff Head resource upgrades and the potential of the Xanadu discovery into account.
