What is your rationale for attending 121 Oil & Gas Investment?
Interested to meet equity investors.
What recent news would you like to highlight to investors attending?
Jadestone recently completed the transfer of operatorship of the Montara project, offshore Australia. The Company’s guidance for 2019 indicates substantial growth over 2018 and material value creation for shareholders, including a fully-funded programme of material near-term catalysts.
What are your key goals for the next 3,6 and 12 months?
Continued safe production of oil from its two operated assets, Stag and Montara, both offshore Australia.
Progress government approvals toward sanction of the Nam Du and U Minh field development project, offshore Vietnam.
Begin an infill drilling campaign at Montara and provide guidance to indicate continued growth and value creation for shareholders through 2020.
What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Commodity prices are a challenge for the industry overall. As mitigation, we have hedged a significant portion of our oil production, locking in prices above $72/bbl for the year, and have built an efficient organisation that generates robust returns even below US$50/bbl.
What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
We are building a balanced, low risk, full cycle portfolio, which includes ample re-investment opportunities, focused on generating superior value for shareholders.
