Hurricane Energy will be able to pay off its debts, but how much remaining value there will be for shareholders is debatable

Hurricane Energy (HUR) is a company that I’ve been following and covering ever since the days before it drilled the Lancaster appraisal well; through the times when it looked like it could be a big AIM success story; and more recently when it was uncertain as to whether it would even survive.

Orcadian Energy IPO- I love a BOGOF deal: BUY ( I will be)

Today has seen a new entrant to the AIM oil & gas sector of the market – Orcadian Energy (ORCA). I am a self-declared Victor Meldrew – grumpy odd sod who sees the only rain later when the sun is shining, and any downside has to be highlighted. But I know a genuine “Buy One Get One Free” deal when I see it. Not those marketer driven “pump the price then make the offer” deals so many supermarkets like. I mean the genuine miss-priced bargain deals. In my view Orcadian is in this special category of miss-pricing and I am likely to be buying as you are reading this article.

I start with logistical issues. Thanks to Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR), I need to find another hat to eat on video. This may take a while but I am a man of my word. I discuss Red Rock and why Bell has let me down. I end with a picture of where I was at lunchtime with Joshua celebrating today’s personal triumph re Eden Research and KPMG. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) where surely the FCA or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation must act now. Today’s news begs more questions for the AIM Shit of the year 2012-20, Richard Gill, aka Gollum.

Hurricane Energy – Good outcome for all shareholders, except for Hurricane shareholders

Hurricane Energy (HUR) failed to obtain court sanction of its refinance scheme. When I wrote last week, I identified a likely core matter of timing as being critical to the outcome. The 30 page statement of reasons from the Judge had a theme running through it – is now the right time for an irreversible dramatic change to be imposed on shareholders? The answer was no. I see this as good for shareholders more widely but does not change my bulk order for beer and popcorn as I watch this particular situation play out to the death.

Hurricane Energy – An appealing way to loose cash

The Hurricane Energy (HUR) sanction hearing court case has been rumbling on for the last few days, as I last commented recently here. It has been fascinating to watch and listen to on and off, not least thanks to some dozy plonker called “Clive” who munched his way through cornflakes with camera and mic on in live court before the Judge! I, of course recommended beer and popcorn to properly enjoy the event – I was not disappointed over the last few days. But I rather think further fun and games will occur and a bulk order of beer and popcorn is required.

What soup will the Titanic serve tonight? Hurricane Energy publishes mammoth ESG Report

The question for the Titanic chefs is asked well after the iceberg has been hit. For Hurricane Energy (HUR) is also a busted flush, a sinking ship. Its assets are so poor that it will probably go bust at some stage whether or not it completes a debt for equity swap which will see shareholders lose 95% of the company. This company is, like the Titanic 109 years ago, holed beneath the waterline.  Against this backdrop it has today published a glossy 71 page Environmental Social and Governance report.

Hurricane Energy – Death by mortal blow, but which one?

Yesterday’s operational update from Hurricane Energy (HUR) was a mortal blow in my view. It really was bad news on several technical fronts. For shareholders I only have one question – what will kill the company? Technical matters or the Courts or the procedures of the Companies Act? For current shareholders this company is in its death throws, and it is worth examining what is happening over the next few weeks so the Ouzo can be chilled and the beer and popcorn readied.

The best time to kick a man is when he is down: Ref Hurricane Energy

So says my good pal, the infamous bear raider Evil Knievil, and he is right. You and I look at a high flying stock where the valuation is insane but where if we go short the valuation can easily go to double insane before gravity kicks in.

Hurricane Energy – I’m not sure a debt for equity is the outcome, it could be far worse and far sooner.

Gary Newman provided excellent commentary on Friday on the latest in the evolving demise of Hurricane Energy (HUR) from AIM O&G darling to AIM gambling fodder, while I was busy picking up my milk float and learning to drive like Ernie. Tom commented in Bearcast how he also saw a debt for equity deal looked like a probable outcome. I’m not sure I see the investment case even that favourably when I start to drill into the detail.

Hurricane Energy – surely the case against the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood is now beyond doubt?

Today’s latest disastrous news from Hurricane Energy (HUR) is covered by Gary Newman HERE. Gary and Peter Brailey, having been bulls in the distant past, have both been warning you for ages that this was a disaster waiting to happen. But as the shares have collapsed from 60p to just 3p over the past 15 months, one man has been steadfast in his support. Just as he was until the bitter end with the fraud Frontera (FRR), churning out comment after comment after comment suggesting quite explicitly that the shares were cheap. I refer, of course, to Fat Bastard, the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood.

Then at the accounts from troubled broker Novum which came out yesterday. They are truly shocking and get a full debagging from me.

Hurricane Energy (HUR) is a company that I have been bullish on ever since first covering it as a buy back in June 2014, but things haven’t worked out particularly well for anyone who has been invested since that time. This is rather unfortunate, as from an operational point of view it has performed amazingly well, better than anyone could really have hoped for, and is an example of how an AIM oil explorer can sometimes succeed and take a large discovery all the way through to production. Unfortunately for longer term holders though, that has proved costly in terms of dilution to enable to company to retain 100% of its Lancaster field...

I resisted the temptation to short Premier Oil (PMO) a year ago, along with Afren, Gulf Keystone and Petroceltic as it was never in the same basket case league as that lot. I even hitched a brief ride North as it became clear that a wipe out was not going to happen. (In case I come across as arrogant or smug I should declare that I was short Hurricane Energy at the time which more than did for the Premier rise)

Oops: Red Faces for thick journos at Dow Jones as it confuses Lancaster's at Hurricane Energy

Hat Tip to a sharp City broker for spotting this howler from the thick journos round at Dow Jones as they reported yesterday's Hurricane Energy (HUR) £70 million oversubscribed placing. Well done to Hurricane, not well done to the thick hacks who will be wearing the Dunce hats for some time...

Will success with the drill sustain the Hurricane Energy rise?

It was great to see Hurricane Energy (HUR) announcing the completion of another successful well at its Lancaster field, as it has been a company that I’ve been a fan of for sometime.

Hurricane’s Lancaster Well – It’s Turtles All the Way Down

Well maybe not all the way down but at least all the way down to 1646m TVDSS. Hurricane (HUR) has announced the results of its 205/21a-7 well and Robert Trice has to be really delighted with what they have found, not just PR delighted, They have proved mobile oil down to 1646m TVDSS about 240m below structural closure. This is really significant and I reckon using my trusty slide rule that could support an oil in place of about 1.3 billion bbls.

Hurricane Energy manages to raise funds at a large premium - long term buy

Prior to the oil price crash, Hurricane Energy (HUR) was a favourite of mine and is one that I still watch closely despite not having held a position there for a long time.

Slashing Costs Alone Won't Create a Future for the UKCS, Ref: Hurricane Energy

Here's the thing, cutting costs is all well and good, indeed getting rid of waste and unnecessary expenditure is essential to create a platform for growth, but without growth, there is no future for the oil and gas business in the UK. Without growth then next year's production will decline and more costs need to be cut and the year after that even more, until one day the only option left is to shut everything down.

Rise Early, Work Hard, Strike Oil, ref. Hurricane Energy & Xcite Energy

Everyone knows  J. Paul Getty's formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil; and pretty much everyone I know in the oil business rises early and works hard, some of them even strike oil. So it's hard to find many oil folk who don't believe in the quote, of course the tricky bit is the last part of the aphorism. Striking oil generally requires a decent dollop of good fortune as well as brilliant geoscience and that elusive material, money; however when we do strike oil these days we generally manage to keep it in the well, unlike these pioneers in times past who needed to have a decent turn of speed when they struck oil.

How to Break a North Sea Project Cost Estimator ref. Hurricane Energy & Xcite

How do you know what a North Sea development project will cost? Well, most of us have our rules of thumb, some a tad more sophisticated than others. They range from just knowing that North Sea capex per barrel has been running at nearly $30/bbl for the last few years to sophisticated computer models based on construction rates and equipment weights.

Seillean, We Hardly Knew Ye - an idea for Hurricane Energy

Sitting in the auditorium at DEVEX 2015 last week, waiting somewhat apprehensively for my chance to tell everyone about our Pilot project (go on, click the link and watch the talk you know you really want to), I found myself listening to Neil Platt of Hurricane tell the world how Hurricane's plans for the Phase I development of Lancaster had shrunk from a multi-well development with a conventional moored FPSO down to a single well EPS (Early Production System) tied back to a DP (Dynamically Positioned) FPSO; I thought – "I know the boat you need, and it will cost virtually nothing."

So What is a North Sea Oilfield Actually Worth Then?

I have posted before on the breakeven oil price for some North Sea developments and then in this follow-up post I extended that analysis to make rough and ready estimates of how the net present value per barrel varied with oil price for most of those projects.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - 10 February

I start - as I would always do when I err - with an apology and correction on Scholium as per yesterday's Bearcast. I then go onto high handed CEOs who say they do not care about Private Investors and get a big come uppance. Step forward the little shit who runs Northern Petroleum, Keith Bush. I comment on Inspirit and Ambrian and going back to oil I disagree strngly with Ben Turney (HERE), Gulf Keystone remains a stonking sell. I also touch on Igas, Afren and Hurricane. En passant I touch on the china frauds like China Chaitek and Camkids.

Lucian Miers: 3 oil shorts

Infamous bear raider Lucian Miers is of the view that the oil price is not going to spike higher in a hurry and that this is going to cause real pain across the sector. He has made money shorting Afren (AFR) where the debt looks company consuming at current oil prices but perhaps the bid will save it so Miers has closed that position. However...

Lek Oil – the safe West African Play: Buy at 59.75p – target 150p

I have been watching Lek Oil (LEK) for some time and think the drop in the share price due to the problems at farm in partner Afren (AFR) is overdone. From Afren’s results last week we know that there will still be a well drilled in OPL 310 in 4Q this year. Lek will benefit from Afren’s troubles as investors switch hot money into the “safer” play.

Hurricane Energy is a strong buy with news imminent

The referendum on Scottish independence has been causing a fair amount of uncertainty in UK offshore oil and gas companies. Hurricane Energy (HUR) is amongst them and I see the recent dip in the share price as a great opportunity for new investors to get in or for existing ones to add to their holdings before news comes.

Hurricane Energy and share price manipulation

Hurricane Energy (HUR) announced some fantastic news last week, but like most AIM shares these days it didn’t stop the share price being manipulated. This oil explorer with assets in the West of Shetland area revealed that the appraisal of its 100% owned Lancaster discovery had been a huge success, with flow rates as high as 9,800bopd being achieved.

Buy Rose Petroleum at 2.28p – Initial target price – 4p

There were two interesting articles on Rose Petroleum (ROSE) written by Chris Oil this weekend that caught the attention of many retail investors. Chris has made some great calls recently, most notably Hurricane Oil (HUR) which has risen over 50% since his tip at 27.5p. Anyone following Chris’ advice would be reaping some healthy gains. However I think Chris has got his calls on Rose wrong. I am greatful to Tom Winnifrith for - in the interests of balance - allowing me to put the alternative point of view.

Hurricane Energy AGM Report – a buy at 28p

Following my article on (HUR) Hurricane Energy, HERE, I hot footed it down to the AGM on Monday Morning in my city and private investor capacity. I was lucky enough to sit near to a BP official I knew. Of course, he told me he was there as a private investor but we had a decent chat about North Sea fields in the West Shetlands and how interesting a development would be in shallow waters in the Greater Lancaster project area.
