Chariot Oil and Gas

Sunday, Dec 29 2013 by

The comparison is stark! I notice that Tower Resources has galloped at a pace recently - based on an impending drill in March/April with Repsol in Namibia. Tower is less diversified than Chariot, has less cash than Chariot, and yet its market valuation is approaching 4 times that of Chariot.  Furthermore - looking at the relative valuation figures on stockopedia - Chariot is way undervalued and Tower is way overvalued.

Or maybe they are both still grossly undervalued?

Just saw that Chariot has a new presentation on - and also shown - looks like Namibia will be on the drill calendar for 2014.. I know they are drill ready .. and there are plenty of rumours from other explorers that Chariot will drill ... so I guess that is a trigger. Looking to win the 2014 oil competition :-)

Chariot has been rebounding quite strongly over the last two days. Peel Hunt has upgraded from Hold to Buy with a 40p target - from 20p.

Makes an interesting read , can they get farmouts or will their coffers run dry trying?

They will get farmouts. They are also debt free, fully funded, with plenty of cash. Shell have now announced they are going back to Namibia and picked up some acreage of Signet petroleum (next to their Orange Basin South Africa acreage which will be drilled this year - will they then drill the Namibia acreage a few Km away?) and a guy at Namcor stated yesterday that two additional international Oil explorers are also going through the approval process. Now - as there is no acreage to be had (Namcor put a stop to it) other than farm-in or outright acquisition it begs the question who will they join forces with. There is also a drill nearby - Tower/Repsol in April, and three other drills soon in paralell (2 Morocco, 1 Mauritania) .. and more to come ... interesting times.

Today they also appointed two new non execs - one a former founder of Rockhopper and another who claimes 3Bn barrels of oil find off West Africa, Gulf of mexico etc... happy days...

An interesting review of Chariot after Malcolm Graham-Wood met with the Senior Management a Chariot.

There is also an interesting video -

Malcy was very bearish on CHAR so this is a turnaround from a highly respected figure in the oil exploration investment industry.

Chariot on the rise again today, with very solid volume. A recent RFC Ambrian report covering African Oilers including Chariot makes it a compelling story to look at... get your hands on it ...

Saw this on another bb: Seems only now to be making the rounds post close.

Chariot Oil & Gas rose 1.3 per cent to 20.3p, with Bernstein Research speculating that the African explorer would make a sensible takeover target for Galp -
