    Free E & P Oil Company!

    I would like to think you are right, but the estimates of Rockpile and Calber value were based on day rates and transportation charges folks were willing to pay with higher price oil. Now the demand for both service company offerings -- particularly the fourth and fifth Rockpile spreads -- has fallen and the former projected values will need to be adjusted downward (and I am afraid the adjustment might be significant). That said, TPLM has two big things going for it -- low debt and the ability to use nearly all of Rockpile and Caliber to reduce its own drilling costs. Lex

    Watching MHR

    HT: what do you mean by your statement that GE just pledged 2 million of his own shares for that very purpose? What is the purpose an\d how did he pledge his shares? Thanks for explaining......

    Foolfinder: Is it really a stupid post when the $9 figure is thrown out there without referencing a time frame? IMO Mhr WILL be taken out for more than $9 -- and then some -- but it wont happen for another year or two because current deficit spending is too high and take outs typically don't happen for E&P companies until ebitdax nears capex. But MHRs assets are worth more than $9 and growing in value, so it will happen eventually making the prior post not so stupid as you suggest. Lex

    How bout those wells?

    Awesome well results, particularly since all three of the Marcellus wells are 45%+ liquids, which greatly enhances associated sales revenues from the production! Plus, production on the pipeline goes up and, hopefully, EHP doesnt have issues moving the liquids because of the giant dry gas flow from the Utica well.

    Now, if we can just get some air permits and get all the high test rate wells into ongoing production mode. Very good news......

    I do not claim to be one who is "in the know;" however, to address your inquiry, GE's slide 56 in the October presentation puts the value between $3.195B and $3.874B. The average of those figures is just shy of $3.4B.

    On one hand, GE has historically failed to realize even his low side estimates on liquidations, so your $3b estimate may be spot on. On the other hand, the midpoint of GE's Utica acreage values is not far off from the CHK $13,000 an acre price, so maybe his low end value of about $3.2B is a fair number. Assuming the $3.2B figure to be correct, slide 56 puts the NAV per share net of debt at $9.38.

    Just a few observations based on the presentation, and here's hoping GE is right with his values and our share price gets back up above $9 in the coming year. Lex

    CHK confirming value to low for MHR

    JMS: Good point about adding the Bakken to my pipeline variance remark as it appears the metric comparison may well have been premised on Marcellus/Utica acreage alone. Thanks, Lex

    CHK confirming value to low for MHR

    How does the author of this note reconcile his numbers? If the shares have 40% upside from $4.70 at time of issue, that takes the share price to $6.40. Then in the next sentence he has a has a target price of $10. I like the $10 more, but taking his asset sale metrics at face value in light of the current PPS, the target appears 50% higher than his implied upside calculation. I trust the difference is explained by the pipeline since the implied upside is premised only on production and acreage.

    Takeover talk in the oil patch is going to start

    A takeover is more likely when Ebitdax gets close to equaling or exceeding capex. That is the litmus test because it is at that point that the acquirer doesnt have to issue a bunch of equity or take on debt to fund further expansion -- they just pay a fair price and take on the benefits of self-funded upside. See BEXP and KOG for examples.

    IR is very excitied about the 3 S-W marcellus wells!

    HT: While I certainly agree with your overall sentiments, selling the Bakken is a mixed-bag from the perspective of cash flow, which MHR needs so desperately. Remember that our 5000 a day of Bakken generates a royalty-adjusted $400k or so a day in revenue, which is 100,000 mcf a day of dry Utica gas on a sustained basis, or around 60,000 mcf a day with MHRs level of liquids. Yes selling Bakken creates a large liquidity event and helps to focus the business, but revenues will fall dramatically once sold without a lot of new -- and sustained -- production. What MHR really needs is a slew of additional wells on the pipeline to jack up future EBITDA projections so they can monetize the pipeline at a high Ebitda multiple..... Now if THAT happens the shorts will really be scrambling. Just my two cents. Lex

    Ht: You comment ..... "until production starts offsetting the debt.' Well, THAT is certainly a long way off since MHRs own estimate for next year's EBITDA( (2015) is $200m and the capex budget is twice that for THIS year with all indications GE is going to have a similar budget for next year. Getting the SW wells on line will help stabilize the price in the near term, but IMO the PPS will not move significantly until either the Bakken acreage is sold or the MLP is announced as until one or both are announced, MHR is bleeding cash with softening liquidity and struggling to bring wells on line in an area with limited surrounding infrastructure. Just my two cents.

    You know, one of the MS press releases there was reference to the MLP being "early next year" as opposed to simply in 2015 -- now THAT would be sweet. Get the two large-line interconnect laterals completed and a commitment to complete lines to the three southern Ohio pads (Farley, woodchopper and the other). and then cut EHP loose in an MLP. debt is reduced, liquidity goes up, and infrastructure in place to get all major pad production to market.

    Days like today hurt to watch, but I have to admit, I am feeling very optimistic about the next 6 or 7 months.. GL, Lex

    INVN Is NOT in iphone 6

    Looks like the market thinks we are definitely in Apple, so my concern is probably all for naught. Certainly hope so. As for your reply to my prior note, not selling is not insider trading as there are no trades. Thus, I continue to feel it is odd he sold. BUT it sounds like the GC bought shares so that is good.. One more day...Keep your fingers crossed.
