Reader Poll - what price the looming UK Oil & Gas bailout placing?

Published 35 days ago

UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is almost out of cash and the see-through from the latest Horse Hill transaction shows that at 4.775p, a market cap of £169 million is absurd as I explained HERE. So at what price will the rescue £5-10 million bailout be priced a?. We know that it was offered some cash at 2p a few weeks back but that was before all the bad news. With a placing surely imminent the deadline to vote in this reader poll is midnight tonight (19 October)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Horse Hill Maths that just don't stack up for UKOG and that $15 million placing by Cornhill "outed"

Published 36 days ago

On the agenda today as I prepare for my weekly coffee morning with my baby son Joshua and the fit young mums is: Andalas (ADL) a joke broker note, MySquar (MYSQ) another RNS which is all smoke and mirrors and a desperate attempt to prop up the shares but SP Angel refuses to force the company to come clean on the lies in the last RNS and the fraud. Pathetic. I look at Interserve (IRV) and its latest dire news. We did warn you. I "out" the company that was truing to raise $15 million via Cornhill yesterday. I look at former ZAI clients whose days on AIM are numbered and finally I read across from yesterday's Horse Hill trade involving Regency (RGM) and Alba (ALBA) to show just how monstrously overvalued is, out of cash and desperate to place,  UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) 

Cowboys and Injuns- A UK Oil & Gas groupie fully rebutted by cynical expert

Injuneer is a man claiming to be a drilling engineer but whose "analysis" of Horse Hill and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) suggests otherwise and demonstrates once again that a (very) little knowledge is a dangerous thing.  His "critique" of the analysis of Professor David Smythe is today rebutted by the good Prof in a way that shows again how utterly overvalued UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) shares are today at just under 7p. The Prof writes:

UK Oil & Gas - as it prepares for placing more ramptastic news from Horse Hill: DO THE MATH MORONS!

Remember Horse Hill? That was the original breakthrough site for UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). It was the Gatwick Gusher. It was the site that lyin' Steve Sanderson claimed contained a billion barrels of oil. Then he said he never claimed that. Then a video emerged of him saying that. So is that one big lie or two? Anyhow as UK Oil & Gas tries to ramp its shares ahead of a placing we have more ramptastic news from the Hill.

Top Boffin slams UK Oil & Gas analysis as "fundamentally flawed" - new dossier

Published 82 days ago

I have reported before on the work of top geologist Dr David K. Smythe. Last time we carried his work of the various Weald basin drill programmes including Horse Hill & Broadford Bridge Andrew Bell of Regency Mines (RGM) "played the man" as well as the ball and slammed his analysis. I note Regency has been selling down its position not buying and so judge it by its actions not its words. Now we have a new detailed dossier on Horse Hill.

Lucian Miers advised shorting UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and went short himself at c3.1p, boasting that twice before he had made a packet on the short tack with this perennial darling of the educationally sub-normal wing of the provisional private investor army. The shares are now 4.65p and the Bulletin Boards and the comments section on this website are full of posts by folks laughing at my old friend, the Bard of the Boleyn. So has East London's most feared short seller lost his marbles as well as a vast amount of dosh?

Déjà Vu at UK Oil & Gas: A Sell

In April 2015, at Waterloo station I looked up and saw, on a giant television screen streaming live Sky News, the portly figure of colourful Australian share promotor David Lenigas making wild and, as it turned out, unsubstantiated claims about the ‘Gatwick Gusher’, the voguish oil play situated on the Sussex Weald. Instinctively, I reached for my phone and shorted UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) which had trebled to 3p on the excitement.

When I started bearcasts the plan was not to do them on a daily basis. But that is the way they are now produced. I have the odd day off but I enjoy recording. You cannot generate a typo in a bearcast. Sometimes the language is extreme, sometimes - as when, like now, I am with my father, - I speak like an Angel. The point is I say what I think and for some reason, most weeks, the bearcasts are always among the most read articles on ShareProphets.

Well knock me down with a feather duster but it has today announced a placing to raise £2 million ( lets call it £1.85 million net) at, cue drum roll.....0.18p. Genius or what? Of course Solo is still rubber ducked as I shall explain. The shares at 0.23p remain a sell.

UK Oil & Gas and Horse Hill - the most ludicrous pre-placing ramp in the history of AIM exposed

Published 584 days ago

There are two statements from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) today. One is a hard financial transaction which demonstrates clearly that UK Oil & Gas shares are horrendously overvalued and the other is the most ludicrous attaempt at share ramping in the history of AIM. Defenders of Steve Sanderson, UKOG's CEO, say that he is trying to distance himself from the Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. Frankly even Dave would have struggled to sign off on today's ramping. It is cringe-making and it is noticeable that although it relates to a Horse Hill study, no other Horse Shite company has dared publish these ridiculous claims.

Then there is Andrew Bell talking balls on Horse Hill ahead of placings ahoy across the board. Then those who denied placings at Pantheon (PANR) and the posh fuckwits who spin for Scancell (SCLP). Both denied my stories. Both placed today. Folks: you know where to send your ouzo apologies. I discuss those placings and also that of Armadale (ACP) - a pisser as we own those shares.

I reckon the number is now c£1.5 million which means a placing is needed fast. Fellow Horse Shite play Solo (SOLO) neess a placing within two weeks to pay its commitments in Bongo Bongo land hence today's ramptastic (misleading) RNS.

Its PR man Queenie McManus is - I assume - still smearing me as he chats to his pals the Bulletin Board Morons - but the company refuses to meet for an interview.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 5 December - Six oil stocks heading to zero (and there are more) post OPEC

Published 719 days ago

In this podcast I discuss OPEC and the oil price. I think you should have some oil exposure via BP (BP.A) and I am intyerested in a couple of gas plays, notably Ascent (AST). But I remain uber bearish on oil juniors as I have been (correctly) for four years. Among those heading for zero which I discuss are Gulf Keystone (GKP), Xcite Energy (XEL), IGAS (IGAS), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Northern Petroleum (NOP) and LGO Energy (LGO). And there are others take may not hit zero within a year but which still face share price decimation such as Solo (SOLO) and the Horse Shite/ Horse Hill Gatwick Gusher plays.

Once bitten twice shy: the Horse Hill ramping starts again - ETA the placings?

And so today all the Horse shite stocks have served up news that appeared to have leaked onto every Bulletin Board and twitter ramping session days ago. Flow testing at the "Gatwick gusher" will start early next year. Since every BB Moron already knew this and since half the Horse Hill runners and riders have to do a placing to survive fairly soon, shares in this stable of dogs have not soared as promoters such as David "Jabba The Hutt" Lenigas wuld have hoped.
And so what is the news? The companies involved have been:

I have been, and continue to be, negative on the ‘Gatwick gusher’, otherwise known as the Horse Hill licence area. I just find it very hard to take any of the figures seriously when the companies involved talk about circa 11 billion barrels of oil in place (as per the most recent Schlumberger report), especially when viewed in the context of what they are ever likely to extract, or the sort of flows that you’d expect from shallow, tight limestones and shales.

“Markets affect everyone. But they can go wrong.  Left unattended they can be prone to excess, instability and abuse.  In order for markets to regain their social license, it is vital that public authorities and private market participants work together to reverse the tide of ethical drift. This cannot be a one-off exercise and needs continuous engagement so that market infrastructure keeps pace with market innovation.” Describing the rationale for its Open Forum at the Guildhall on 11 November, the Bank of England perfectly sums up the general argument for reform of AIM.

Open letter to UK Oil & Gas’ Nomad – Does it consider Stephen Sanderson a fit and proper person?

Published 772 days ago

Last night, the BBC’s Inside Out London documentary revealed that UK Oil & Gas’ (UKOG) Stephen Sanderson was the original source that claimed there are “between 50 and 100billion barrels of oil in place in the ground” in the Weald. This wildly optimistic figure was at the heart of April’s Horse Hill propaganda campaign, which caused the shares prices of all the listed companies involved to rocket. UK Oil & Gas half-heartedly tried to distance itself from these wilds estimates, but it is now unequivocally clear that it was behind them. Stephen Sanderson surely now has to go. Let’s see what the company’s Nomad (scandal plagued WH Ireland) has to say about this.

For good measure, this last option, if exercised means Alba will have to fund 10% of the Brockham well cost.

UK Oil & Gas; Horse Hill fantasy numbers downgraded by 22%

Published 821 days ago

I suppose a downgrade of fantasy oil estimates is about as worthwhile as an upgrade of fantasy oil estimates, but nevertheless this morning’s announcement from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) represents a significant reduction in the embarrassing hype surrounding Horse Hill. Schlumberger’s last “independent report” about this absurd project estimated that total oil in place, across the three so-called target areas, was 255million barrels of oil per square mile (bopsm). This morning, Schlumberger slashed this figure to 199.9million bopsm. And yet there are still some out there hailing this as brilliant news…

As I sat three miles from Horse Hill on Monday night I tried to distract myself from the thought of rolling green fields never to be tainted by industrial development, to the matter of oil. And to Sefton Resources (SER). Not that it is rolling in the stuff. Its main problem is lack of money – I sense that a rescue bailout is underway (see HERE). But it has a secondary problem, its much vaunted Indonesia deal must be in trouble.

We are, of course, talking about the latest ramptastic missive from the Horse Hill stock promoters. The Schlumberger report, paid for exclusively by UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), has been presented as even more bullish than the absurd Nutech report of a couple of months ago. What is most amusing about this, apart from the crazy reaction of a herd of private investors, are the health warnings that come attached to it. Even UK Oil & Gas was forced to admit in its RNS “No person or company other than UKOG may directly or indirectly rely upon the contents of its report”. Whatever else happens at Horse Hill, no one can say they weren’t warned.

It can't be a placing, as so many companies are suspended, and a co-ordinated placing would be tricky; maybe the plan is to list Horse Hill developments, it could be that. Or maybe their partner has done something that they need to tell the markets about.

At ShareProphets, we were the first to criticise the BBC, ITV, Sky News and all the other broadcasters, who leapt so obediently onto this propaganda bandwagon, for their deeply misleading coverage. Hundreds, if not thousands, of private investors bought stocks in the Horse Hill nags, thanks to the appalling laziness of too many journalists. Within 24 hours, most of these ordinary people were facing losses of upwards of 35% on their “investments”. This disgraceful episode illustrates once again why AIM is in such desperate need of comprehensive reform.

Today's podcast has to start with the runners and riders in the great Horse Hill stakes. After today's news are the shares still cheap or a stonking short. I move on to hot rumours about Igas and to a taster of what is to come on Gate Ventures. It is then onto Afren, Daniel Stewart and a return to old fave ( and sender of snotty lawyers letters) Globo

Alba Mineral Resources; get ready for the next Horse Hill super ramp

Published 983 days ago

I watched the trade in Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) last Thursday and Friday in a state of bemused bewilderment. For the life of me, I just could not understand what was encouraging buyers to push this company’s stock price higher. Thursday’s announcement of Alba’s acquisition of Regency Mines’ (RGM) stake in Horse Hill gave a crystal clear warning that the company would place at 0.25p, to help pay for this transaction. Today Alba did precisely this. What on earth possessed people to buy shares at 0.4p and above is a mystery to me, but it does suggest one thing. There will be buyers for the next Horse Hill ramp.

Is Horse Hill a busted flush: David Lenigas & Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas Video

At the ShareProphets seminar on Monday 2nd February in Clerkenwell at The Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House, David Lenigas & the new CEO of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) Mr Steve Sanderson explianed why they thought Horse Hill was not a busted flush but very exciting. The video is below.

Stellar Resources - is all that glisters gold?

Published 1029 days ago

Stellar Resources (STG) has been yet another company connected to serial entrepreneur David Lenigas which has been a disaster for its long-term shareholders. Sure, insiders and the odd lucky trading punter have made cash on this stock, but for the overwhelming majority of Stellar’s small army of shareholders this has been a shockingly poor investment.

Chris Oil’s share tips of the year 2015, No 1 - Buy Falcon Oil & Gas at a 5.75p offer

Following the investor excitement surrounding UK onshore plays in 2014, followed by the damp squib at Horse Hill and then a plunging oil price, my first 2015 tip of the year is a fully funded low cost play - . Falcon Oil & Gas (FOG) at a 5.75p offer. 

James Parter’s 2015 share tips of the year – No 1 – sell Solo Oil at 0.6p

Published 1062 days ago

Solo Oil (SOLO) is one of a few AIM listed oil companies where there is activity on most fronts. The hot front to the south sees Solo progress gas exploration in Tanzania. The cold front in England sees Solo progress its oil exploration at Horse Hill. All eyes are on these two beasts after resource upgrades and the share price has rocketed to 0.6p making Solo worth £30 million. But there are great reasons to think this will at least halve by 2016.

Stellar Resources - ''With each turn of the wheel becomes a revolution'' - video shocker

Published 1107 days ago

One of the saddest parts of being a financial commentator when you unearth facts which don't quite compliment the belief mechanism of either shareholders or traders. Often the level of misunderstanding is so great that it becomes hard to know where it starts and ends. I'm not going to overload investors today with all the facts but perhaps enough for people to question the presentation of operations, investments and ability of Stellar Resources (STG), an AIM listed creation of David Lenigas.

All the kerfuffle and all the allegations about David Lenigas, Brokerman Daniel and Horse Hill are covered in his weekly video by Tom Winnifrith. Neither of the two men are angels. For the avoidance of doubt neither does Tom claim to be a saint. However both Lenigas and Dan have come in for unfair stick in recent days and Tom explains why some of that criticism is so wide of the mark.

Horse Hill; the stupidity of buying rumours

Published 1126 days ago

At about 3.30pm yesterday, Brokerman Dan revealed his exclusive scoop that Horse Hill was about to yield a commercial oil discovery. This triggered a mini-buying frenzy, which drove the share prices of the listed companies involved in Horse Hill much higher. As the most exposed Horse Hill play, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) flew from 1.16p, to hit an intraday high of 1.7p, all within the last hour of trading! This morning, as a flurry of RNSs hit the market and the dust settled, it turned out that Dan’s figures were well off the mark. A commercial discovery hasn’t been announced (read the RNSs thoroughly for confirmation of this). Also, the current size of the discovery is “only” a preliminary estimate of 3.1million barrels of oil in place, not 15million to 20million barrels. In the ensuing sharp sell off, UK Oil & Gas is back down to 1.15p. Dan is likely to come in for criticism for his reporting of this event, but this is misguided. Here’s why.

David Lenigas: Misinformed or taking the Twitter Piss on Horse Hill

The tweets of David Lenigas have been controversial in the past - see here  - but now another episode comes to light which appears to beggar belief. Quite simply Mr Lenigas appears to have made tweet claims about Horse Hill which his own team says are untrue. For the avoidance of doubt I am a shareholder in a HH company (UK Oil & Gas) and I reckon oil will be found but that does not excuse what has gone on. 

UK Oil & Gas – a shocking placing & a disgraceful tweet from Mr Lenigas

Rule 13 of “The 49 Golden Rules of Making Money from Oil, Gas & Mining Stocks” courtesy of Regency Mines (and Quindell!)

Published 1151 days ago

It has amazed me how writing for ShareProphets attracts the unwanted attentions of crazies. As soon as you write anything that is perceived as being vaguely negative about a treasured stock, the nutters come crawling out of the woodwork to launch tirades of social media abuse. I won’t name the chief cheerleader for Regency Mines (RGM), but this person took exception to my comment at the end of July that it was “surely only a matter of time” before Regency placed. Tweet followed email followed Tweet about what utter rot (not the word used by my avid fan) I was talking, how I didn’t know anything about the company and there was no way it would place. Well, after today’s announcement, Regency has placed twice in the last seven weeks. What a shock. Perhaps some readers of ShareProphets would do well to spend a little less time frantically bashing keyboards and a little more time reading Tom and mine’s latest book “The 49 Golden Rules of Making Money from Oil, Gas & Mining Stocks”.

Solo Oil; pipe dream or genuine prospect?

Published 1154 days ago

Just over two months ago, Gary Newman (a little ambivalently) picked Solo Oil (SOLO) as his runner in the Horse Hill race. His reasoning had less to do with Horse Hill and more to do with the appraisal of the Ntorya gas condensate discovery in Tanzania, in which Solo retains 25%. As it turned out, this was another good call by Gary, albeit a reluctant one! At the start of the month, Solo announced a sizeable upgrade to the reserves at Ntorya-1 and the company’s share price hasn’t looked back. From an end of day close of 0.38p on September 3rd, this stock hit an intraday peak of 1.2p and now trades at 0.98p, last seen. This values Solo at £46.56million. Now that the company has secured a c.$8.6million funding package, the question is can Solo build on its recent fantastic gains?

Horse Hill update c/o twitter – I was fooled

Published 1154 days ago

It seems an unusual way to keep investors informed but one of the Horse Hill runners and riders, Doriemus (DOR) has provided a drilling update by twitter. Oh no it hasn't. DoriemusPLC is not an official account - I was fooled. I apologise. The tweet reads:

Bears of the Horse Hill Oil stocks keep insisting that the well has a 20% COS. Where, a reader asks, does this number come from?  Er… the bears. We put this to Mr David Lenigas this morning who appears to disagree with this assessment. His (diplomatic) response was:

Why did David Lenigas step down from Leni Gas & Oil Board today…from the Horse’s Mouth

Published 1184 days ago

The company was called Leni Gas & Oil (LGO) and was founded by David Lenigas. So when Mr Lenigas steps down from its board you do have to ask why? The Great man is on annual leave but we have swapped emails and so from the horses’ mouth:

UK Oil & Gas – we are up on this tip but the fireworks are about to start at Horse Hill!

Published 1198 days ago

This seems pretty dramatic. UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is ponying up £750,000 – which it has after the recent placing to take its stake in Horse Hill Development to 20% from 7.5%. Given that it also owns 6% of Angus Energy its see through stake in the field is now 15.4%. 

Horse Hill; ramp, rumour, place!

Published 1198 days ago

Ever the showman, this morning’s RNS from David Lenigas’ UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is a perfect pump primer for the soon to spud Horse Hill exploration well. UK Oil & Gas has just upped its direct stake in Horse Hill Development Ltd, which has a 65% participating interest in the Horse Hill Field, to 20%, for a £750,000 commitment. Apparently this purchase is “being funded from UKOG's existing cash balances”, which is probably the Australian for “expect a placement tomorrow”. But I’m not very good at foreign languages, so what do I know?

Regency Mines and Andrew Bell on video - make your own mind up

Under starters orders; a final look at the form of the Horse Hill runners

Published 1213 days ago

Over the last couple of weeks the share prices of the six listed companies participating in the Horse Hill oil exploration project have pulled back. Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) have both placed. Solo Oil (SOLO) has been treading water since it placed in mid June. Regency Mines (RGM) looks almost certain to place imminently, despite having raised money in May and the same can probably be said for Doriemus (DOR), though the latter’s financial position is certainly better. This leaves Stellar Resources (STG), which of the six is probably the best funded and might not need a Horse Hill cash injection. Time will tell if this view is correct, but with the spud only days away, now might be the time to place your bets if you fancy a gamble on the madness of crowds. Below I take a look at the runners.

ShareProphets tip of the week (Alba Mineral Resources) Update – Placing announced

Published 1214 days ago

In a sense this makes our share tip of the week yesterday – Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) even better. We said buy this morning at 0.6p and, as per the tip, were fully aware that sooner or later it would use Horse  Hill excitement to get a placing away.

This is a total punt. But we reckon that if you buy a few Alba Minerals (ALBA) shares at 0.60p first thing Monday you could be selling at c0.9p within a couple of weeks. And you should be selling – this is very much a trading buy.

Whatever else is said about David Lenigas he certainly appears to have a firm grip of the current mood of the market. This morning UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) announced a £2million placement at 1p. Some will complain about this, but this looks like another smart bit of business. Whether this leads to a material uplift in the stock price is another matter...

Alba Resources: shit or glory on Horse Hill

Published 1221 days ago

Today’s Horse Hill news hasn’t done much to lift the share prices of the listed participating companies. Perhaps this is to be expected, as approval from the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change was surely just a formality. Even so, the co-owners of Horse Hill Developments Ltd are experiencing something of a market lull, but I still expect this will prove to be the calm before the storm. Although there is the looming spectre of placements, it is hard to see Horse Hill fever reaching anything other than epic proportions. When I first covered this drill, last week, I was a little flippant when I picked Alba Resources (ALBA) as the stock I might take a gamble on, based solely on it having the fewest number of shares in issue. This morning, Alba provided its half yearly report and I think I might have to change my mind.

Doriemus: Disposal Makes Sense. The shares are a buy and comrade Brokerman Dan is wrong

Why Horse Hill could be Mosman on steroids

Published 1227 days ago

Whoever said that ShareProphets is a one trick pony?! Proving that this view of our work is entirely misguided, I thought I’d throw in another Horse Hill article onto today’s roster... “Not more bloody Horse Hill” I hear our avid readers cry, but this is likely to be the story that dominates British resource small caps over the rest of the summer. Given the wild reaction we’ve recently seen to Mosman Oil and Gas’ (MSMN) succession of oil “discoveries” in New Zealand (which, by its own admission, it doesn’t even know if they are commercial yet) the scene could be set for ecstatic market rapture if rumours ever leak from Horse Hill’s Surrey drill site. This could end up being the highest profile onshore exploration campaign ever seen in the UK and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a temporary campsite springs up outside the gates, as desperate private speculators resort to whatever means they can to gain access to information. Although the smart ones will probably just hang out in the local pubs, when shifts end...

Why I'm not convinced by Horse Hill

Published 1227 days ago

I’ve been watching all the excitement surrounding the drilling of the Horse Hill 1 well in the UK, but personally am not convinced! I find myself wondering why NASDAQ-listed company Magellan Petroleum relinquished a 65% share of the PEDL137 license (which contains the Horse Hill prospect) simply in return for the farminee drilling it prior to its expiry date on September 30 2014.

**REPUBLISHED** Horse Hill – which participating companies offer best value?

Published 1227 days ago

This updated piece clarifies that the listed companies mentioned own stakes in Horse Hill Developments Limited, which owns 65% of the Horse Hill oil exploration project.

Since the beginning of June, there has been increasing speculation concerning the upcoming Horse Hill oil exploration drill in Surrey. Share prices of the four original David Lenigas influenced companies have increased by 200-300% in this time and I expect each of them to move even higher in the next few weeks, as the excitement increases the closer we get to the commencement of drilling. On Friday, two further companies joined the Horse Hill party in the form of Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) and Regency Mines (RGM). It is worth mentioning that Regency also has a 14.9% stake in Alba, but the question remains which of the Horse Hill horses could be the largest winner?
