BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - Revenue and profit increase significantly

  • Oil

The oil price continues to gain momentum and is still trading around 40% below the January 2020 level, and now the right stocks are in the spotlight. In addition to the well-known major oil producers such as BP and Shell, there are also successful producers who are not yet so well known, but who certainly have potential. Last night the young Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas published the results of the past fiscal year. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the company had postponed the release, which is currently nothing special and is officially made possible by an extended deadline.

First annual profit in company history

According to its financial statements, Saturn Oil & Gas increased its oil sales from CAD 4.5 million in 2018 to CAD 18.3 million in 2019, a increase of over 300%. For the first time in the company's history, an annual profit was reported. The Adjusted EBITDAX even reached a level of CAD 12.7 million. Saturn Oil & Gas earned more than CAD 820,000, compared to a loss of CAD 1.5 million in the previous year. The company is obviously on the road to success.

Reduction of production costs

Last year, Saturn Oil & Gas increased its average daily production from 233 barrels in 2018 to 766. On average, the company achieved a sales price of CAD 65.47 per barrel in 2019 compared to CAD 48.52 in the same period last year. In addition, the company achieved an operating netback of CAD 51.84 per barrel. In the previous year, this figure was CAD 30.22 per barrel, partly due to the low oil price.

Reserves were expanded

In 2019, Saturn Oil & Gas drilled 17 successful horizontal wells in the Viking Formation. The costs for the drilling and completion were CAD 17.53 million or an average of CAD 1.03 million per well. Despite the production of crude oil, the total proven and probable reserves (NPV-10) increased from CAD 91.37 million to CAD 111.65 million, representing a value of CAD 0.47 per share. In the stock market, the share price has already recovered to the level of the pre-Covid-19 period and yesterday closed at CAD 0.135 and a market value of CAD 31.67 million. In October 2018 the share was already trading at CAD 0.30.

Good oil from Canada

In addition to the positive economic development, the management of Saturn Oil & Gas is also addressing environmental protection issues and placing ESG at the forefront of its activities. Investors who believe that oil will continue to be needed in the coming years for a secure life in a modern society and at the same time want to position themselves in Canada, a country that respects human rights and environmental protection, should take a closer look at the Saturn Oil & Gas share.


Conflict of interest & risk note

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - China's oil imports at new record high

  • Oil

The Corona Pandemic has turned the world upside down in many areas in recent months. The energy sector has not been able to escape the changes. First the demand for crude oil collapsed and then production was cut back. In the meantime, restrictions around the globe are being eased again and there are still opportunities to position oneself to benefit from the post-Corona upswing. The habits of the population in big cities have changed. Public transport is being avoided due to the risk of infection and instead cars are being moved more. In China, an average of 11.34 million barrels of crude oil were imported per day in May 2020. This record value exceeds the previous record from November 2019 by around 160,000 barrels per day.

BP, Chevron, ENI, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell, Total - what investors need to know now

  • Oil

About a month ago, market participants around the world learned that the end of a price slide does not have to end at zero on the expiry date of WTI contracts. Anyone who thought that a barrel of American WTI at USD 0.01, which is 159 litres of crude oil, would be a special bargain on the expiration date and took the chance was taught an expensive lesson. The expiration date of 20 April 2020 will go down in history with an initial negative settlement price of USD -37.63. The USA is known to be the land of opportunity and this seems to be another chapter.

BP, Crescent Point, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - the 300% chance of the billionaire?

  • Oil

When renowned financial institutions and billionaires have an opinion, it is often heard in the market, especially when it does not correspond to the current mainstream. The more established the name or the bigger the bank account, the more weight this opinion carries with investors. In recent weeks, the oil price has become a plaything for politicians. The decline in demand for crude oil in connection with the restrictions imposed to contain the spread of the corona pandemic, coupled with inconsistencies within the OPEC+ cartel, have even pushed the futures for WTI oil into negative territory on its expiration date in April. This is an unprecedented situation, which is also a foundation for the creation of new wealth. Billionaire Naguib Sawiris and JP Morgen agree on the price trend and expect high potential.
