Egdon a buy at 9.25p - worth 35.5p claims house broker VSA after operational update

Published 9 days ago

I have no axe to grind here and the caveat is that the house broker is paid by the client to write research so it is not impartial. But the upside predicted here for Egdon Resources (EDR) seems enormous and VSA is more honest than most brokers (okay there is a low bar in that contest) and as a lower risk play on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) ramping this may be of interest. Today's note reads:

BREAKING: UK Oil & Gas slammed for lying by top expert,says will have to frack: calls for cancellation of permit

Published 13 days ago

UK Oil & Gas and its partners in Kimmeridge Oil & Gas have sought an amendment to their permit from West Sussex County Council to allow a continuation of drilling at Broadford Bridge. Top geologist, David K. Smythe, Emeritus Professor of Geophysics, University of Glasgow has submitted a detailed application which slams UK Oil & gas for, inter alia, lying about what it was doing and claims that it will have to frack to have any hope of making this operational commercial. On that basis he asks , in a detailed and damning submission, that drilling be halted at once. We have the full report below and it appears damning. The highly regarded professor states:

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

Published 492 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.

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

Published 632 days ago

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:

You can trust every word said by men such as Steve “I said that there were 100 billion barrels on camera but deny that I said it” Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). And so it is a given that LGO Energy (LGO) has been upfront about its Goudron 678 well issues is it not?

Fewer folk believe in Santa, The Tooth Fairy or the Horse Hill oil find - Alba placing falls badly short

I wonder how long it will be before that annual ritual occurs when the Daily Mail discovers a CofE vicar who has foolishly told the kiddies that Santa does not exist. The poor chap gets pilloried for a week or so before even the Mail accepts that he cannot be burned at the stake for telling the truth. I have felt a bit like the poor Rev when pointing out that whatever Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) says on camera – and then denies he ever said – there is NOT 100 billion barrels of oil at Horse Hill. Maybe the tide is now turning.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast special - the David Lenigas brand badly tarnished could LGO be a zero?

You cannot say I did not warn you about LGO Energy (LGO). After today's news I ask if it could go to zero? The answer is yes and the shares are a stonking sell still. But the wider David Lenigas brand is also badly tarnished. I will have another dynamite revelation on Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) shortly, Afriag (AFRI) needs a placing big time and the Horse Hill hype is being shown to be just that so UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has real issues.

UK Oil & Gas: What a shock the market doesn’t care about Markwells Wood

Published 678 days ago

There is one thing that the “businesses” David Lenigas sets up rely on; his instinctive ability to promote overvalued paper. Despite this the Lenigas alchemy only works for so so long. As soon as Britain’s best paper salesman moves on from one of his “businesses” (once it’s reached a certain stage of “maturity”, of course) the company’s share price typically follows him quickly out of the door. This pattern has been repeated time and time again. Tom recently pointed out the miserable long-term performance of LGO Energy (LGO), but today it is UK Oil & Gas’ (UKOG) near terminal-looking decline that caught my eye. Worry not though UKOG’ers you have Stephen “I never said 100 billion barrels, although I was captured on camera saying just that” Sanderson at the helm.

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

Published 680 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.

UK Oil & Gas Exclusive: watch the BBC destroy Stephen Sanderson’s credibility HERE

Last night, the BBC published a previously unseen, yet explosive interview with UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) Executive Chairman Stephen Sanderson. It looks like Mr Sanderson has been less than forthcoming in his explanation of who was behind this spring’s outrageous Gatwick Gusher ramp. Having categorically denied that UK Oil & Gas had anything to do with the “100billion barrels of oil beneath the Weald” claims, video evidence now strongly suggests that Sanderson himself was the direct source. You can watch the damning clip here.

At 0.36p, is Afriag worth a gamble?

Published 708 days ago

A seemingly innocuous Tweet from David Lenigas on Monday, distancing himself from the looming Sefton Resources (SER) catastrophe, might be an indicator of good things to come for shares of Afriag (AFRI). At 0.36p last seen, Afriag is worth a touch under £5million. There has been little to no market interest in this stock for most of this year. In the last 54 trading session, Afriag has recorded 22 zero volume days and the share price has flat lined. So why might Lenigas feel so committed to this apparent dead duck of a stock?

UK Oil & Gas: delivers a dose of reality

Forget the Horse Hill pipedream of billions of (unextractable) barrels for a moment and pay close attention to the numbers in today’s announcement. No one has ever doubted that UK Oil & Gas could be a viable business. However, the reality is that it is most unlikely ever to live up to the blue (pie in the) sky fantasy many appear to have bought into.

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

Published 729 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.

UK Oil & Gas latest Horse Hill ramp falls flat on its face

Published 798 days ago

Another day, another stupidity test from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). Unfortunately for David Lenigas and the Horse Hill stock promoters it looks like the message is finally settling in on the British investing public, as it suffers an acute attack of souped-up report fatigue. UK Oil & Gas’ share price surged to 2.75p at the open, only to retreat instantly. As of writing UK Oil & Gas is trading at 2.3, down slightly on the day. This clearly isn’t part of the plan and we will no doubt hear more about the wonders of Horse Hill from Schlumberger any day now…

ShareProphets Translation Service – Schlumberger’s Horse Hill disclaimer

Published 811 days ago

This morning, we’ve read one of the funniest disclaimers we’ve ever come across. 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.

Doing the Horse Hill maths for Uk Oil & Gas & David Lenigas

Published 811 days ago

All the Horse Hill shares were suspended yesterday morning pending an announcement in relation to Horse Hill.  It caused lots of speculation and some think there is a big reserve update coming, I don't agree (I was completely wrong - see update below) but it set me wondering what could be going on. 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.

DECC confirms Horse Hill Developments has not applied for flow testing of HH-1

Published 847 days ago

This morning The Telegraph delivered another broadside to Horse Hill. It claimed that Horse Hill Developments Ltd has not applied to the regulator, the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), “for permission to begin flow testing the Horse Hill-1 well in the Weald Basin.” This flies directly in the face of claims made in RNS announcements by the six listed companies participating in Horse Hill, not to mention David Lenigas on Twitter. We’ve spent much of the day seeking official confirmation of the accuracy of The Telegraph’s story. In the last hour we’ve received it.

Lenigas says he is to sue Andrew Bell & calls him a liar - another big Dave twitter threat

Published 848 days ago

Over the weekend Big Dave Lenigas of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and numerous other companies took to twitter with a series of evening tweets threatening to sue some Bulletin Board Moron from the Grim Northern welfare safaris who had questioned Horse Hill. Has Big Dave actually launched proceedings?  We know not. But next up is Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR) who Lenigas accuses of “being a liar”

Corrected - Horse Hill; What UK Oil & Gas didn’t tell you in this morning’s RNS

Published 848 days ago

Another day, another smokescreen from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). As with all of this month’s announcements from the company, what it hasn’t said is more important than what it has. Quite how long UK Oil & Gas’ Nomad, WH Ireland, will allow the excessive over-promotion of Horse Hill to go unfettered is anyone’s guess, but in the meantime here’s what the spinners hope you are too stupid to figure out for yourself.

Don’t Moan About the Share Price – Trade It

Published 859 days ago

If you go onto most of the popular share chat forums they will be full of people constantly moaning about the share price. The majority of PIs obviously believe that the shares they hold should be worth a lot more – otherwise you wouldn’t buy them in the first place – but most lack the patience needed to just hold and wait for the fundamentals to be reflected in the market cap of the company, assuming of course that you’ve picked a good company in the first place.

Horse Hill and the credibility-killing clarification

Published 861 days ago

This morning’s “Clarification of Press Comment” from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), and the other companies participating in Horse Hill, heaps shame on all involved in last Thursday’s monumental ramp. 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.

Do the Maths: Parsing the Horse Hill Press Releases

Published 862 days ago

The mainstream press and the bulletin boards are all of a tizz about a massive discovery of oil at Horse Hill in Sussex. The numbers are quite gargantuan. The BBC reports there could be 100 billion bbls of oil in place. Now do the real maths.

Horse Hill – the best stock promotion in years!!!

Published 867 days ago

Eventually a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). This morning’s announcement from the company, laughably titled “Significant upgrade of the Horse Hill discovery”, has been wrapped in one of the most skillfully crafted and epic stock promotions of recent years. I correctly predicted this “Horse Hill super-ramp” was coming, last month. Today it is just sad to watch gullible and lazy “credible” journalists from the BBC, ITN and Sky News fall over themselves to interview David Lenigas. God knows what hysteria tomorrow’s papers will carry.

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

Horse Hill; the stupidity of buying rumours

Published 1034 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

Published 1042 days ago

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.

The contention regards a tweet David sent on Monday evening blaming shorters for the price being weaker, only for the company to announce a placing on Wednesday night – that is covered in full in Doc’s article. Here is what Mr Lenigas has to say:

Horse Hill update c/o twitter – I was fooled

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 1092 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 1106 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 1106 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?

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

Published 1121 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.

Alba Resources: shit or glory on Horse Hill

Published 1129 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.

Why Horse Hill could be Mosman on steroids

Published 1135 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

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 1135 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?
