Xcite Energy (XEL) has today announced a new reserves and resources report for its Bentley field. In three months time the company must refinance $125 million of bonds and right now net cash is sub $10 million and falling fast and it has zero revenues. Discussing the economics of a field where Xcite has failed patently to get the farm in partner needed to take it to production is like Hitler worryig about the seating plans for dinner in 1945 as Russian tanks entered Berlin. The only issue now is the scale of the shareholder wipeout. Heck, even respectable and normally cautious brokers such as SP Angel are now openly saying what I have said for an awfully long time, the smell is of toast and it is everywhere.
