    Penn Virginia +3% on Stifel upgrade • 8:54 AM
    Penn Virginia (PVA) +3% premarket after Stifel upgrades shares to Buy from Hold with a $23 target price after a recent pullback.
    Improving oil volume growth in H2 2014 should turn shares around, and the $313M convertible preferred offering completed earlier this week allows for the acceleration of high margin oil volume growth in 2015, making the name even more attractive, Stifel says.
    The firm also likes PVA's 15-year inventory in part of the Eagle Ford oil window, accelerated 2015 drilling activity via the convertible offering's proceeds, and an expected narrowing of free cash flow outspend over the coming years.

    6:05 am Swift Energy announces New Eagle Ford Well tests; average initial production rate of 21.4 mln cubic feet of gas per day (SFY) : Co announced that it has tested three new Eagle Ford wells in the Fasken area in Webb County, Texas. The Fasken C 17H, 18H and 19H were all recently completed with an average initial production rate of 21.4 mln cubic feet of gas per day ("MMcf/d").

    The Company has also completed two new Eagle Ford wells in the northern part of its McMullen County, Texas acreage position. The PCQ 17H and 18H achieved an average initial production rate of 1,404 barrels of oil equivalent during their test periods.
    "Our last 8 Fasken wells (2 in late 2013 and 6 so far in 2014) have all been high rate wells with average initial production tests in excess of 20 MMcf/d. By early next year, we expect to have our Fasken firm pipeline capacity increase from 75 MMcfpd to 160 MMcfpd. Successful execution of this disciplined plan should place Swift Energy firmly among the top 20 Texas natural gas producers in 2015."

    Penn Virginia Corporation Announces the Sale of Mississippi Assets for $72.7 Million

    Penn Virginia Corporation Announces the Sale of Mississippi Assets for $72.7 Million

    RADNOR, Pa., June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Penn Virginia Corporation (NYSE:PVA) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Mississippi assets to an undisclosed buyer for gross cash proceeds of $72.7 million. The sale is expected to close in July 2014 and is subject to customary purchase price adjustments and other customary closing conditions. The effective date of the sale is April 1, 2014.

    The properties to be sold had net production of approximately 11.9 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day during the first quarter of 2014, almost 100 percent of which was natural gas. As a result of the divestiture, our 2014 production will decrease by an estimated 1.9 billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (Bcfe). Estimated proved reserves associated with the divested properties, as determined by our third party engineers at year-end 2013, were 85.3 Bcfe, 69 percent of which were proved developed and approximately 100 percent of which were natural gas.

    must have been a good conference call

  • Drilling to add value
    The other company that looks attractive as an acquisition is Penn Virginia. Penn Virginia owns acreage within the Eagle Ford and is targeting net ownership of at least 100,000 acres within the region; at present, the company has just under 86,000 net acres. Obviously, the company would be attractive for any peer looking to increase its presence within the Eagle Ford region and draw synergies from a combination of the two firms.

    What's more, the value contained within Penn's portfolio is staggeringly obvious. While figures like the PV-10 value can help, the company's own management has stated how much value there is to be found within Penn's acreage.

    Specifically, Penn's management stated on the first quarter earnings conference call that, "If you buy an Eagle Ford acre for about $3,500, drill it with a $9.6 million well that acre net of investment is now worth anywhere from $80,000 per acre to $100,000 per acre depending on spacing."

    So, let's add in the fact that Penn currently owns 86,000 net acres. That's a potential valuation of $6.9 billion if each acre is sold for $80,000, or $8.6 billion if each acre is sold for $100,000. Presently, Penn's enterprise value stands at $2.2 billion, indicating that the company could be worth double its current value.

    So, Penn really does appear to be an attractive acquisition target.

    The following is a press release from Standard & Poor's:

    -- We expect Penn Virginia Corp. to continue to expand its oil reserves
    and production.
    -- We are raising the corporate credit rating on the company to 'B+' from
    'B'. We are affirming our 'B-' issue ratings on the company's senior unsecured
    debt and revising our recovery rating on this debt to '6' from '5'.
    -- The outlook is stable, reflecting our expectation that Penn Virginia
    should be able to fund its aggressive capital spending program while
    maintaining debt leverage of 3x or less on average over the next three years.
