March 5th 2019 Interview with the CEO:     Video Link

Jersey Oil and Gas is a London listed UK E&P Company focused on building its position in the UK North Sea.

In October 2017 JOG announced an oil discovery in the Verbier sidetrack well, 20/05b-13Z drilled in License P2170. The well was drilled safely and within budget to the planned total depth of 3811m and a suite of log data had been acquired via Logging While Drilling (“LWD”), including pressure data.

Preliminary analysis indicates

* The well has proven a hydrocarbon accumulation in good quality sands, up dip of the water bearing sands encountered in the initial well

*Initial Operator estimates of gross recoverable resources associated with the Verbier discovery are between 25 and 130 million barrels of oil equivalent, with a minimum proven recoverable volume, in the immediate vicinity of the well bore, of 25 million barrels of oil equivalent

In addition to confirming the presence of oil in the Verbier prospect, this discovery provides valuable information to help better understand the prospectivity of the license area, which includes the Cortina prospect and the Meribel lead.

Appraisal well on Verbier to be drilled in Q1 2019.

Been buying a lot of these below 200p, whilst waiting for the 3D seismic and the upcoming Verbier appraisal well.

Got a write up and buy rating by Simon Thompson in the IC, so the poke up above 200p now.

Considerably undervalued and he agrees with that.

Being tipped by a few people now, IC, SP etc....

Basically with 25MMBO confirmed recoverable oil the appraisal well will hopefully lift this up so the low to best case changes from 25 to 130 range into something like 75 to 130 range.

Meaning, a good appraisal well should see a share price of around 660p or more as the low case moves up from 25 MMBO to say 65 or 75 levels.

New presentation is out as per link below :

Thanks for the post. I bought into Jersey Oil and Gas (LON:JOG) a couple of years ago when it was highlighted on Malcy’s bucket list. Usual roller coaster ride when Verbier’s initial drill results suggested it was a duster (and the share price collapsed to sub 50p) before a subsequent reappraisal identified a potential significant find. Unlike some other small oilers they’re well funded, have minimal debt and have avoided issuing new shares like confetti so any meaningful and confirmed increase in the Verbier appraisal well will feed into a significant up tick in the share price. As ever, the downside of any disappointment will be brutal.

................ A successful appraisal well could help pave the way for a development that could kick start activity in the area around Verbier.

The results of the appraisal well will allow Jersey and Equinor to firm up estimates of the size of the field. Mr Benitz said a find at the 25 million lower end of the estimate range would be commercially viable.

He noted the potential for Verbier to form a hub for a series of field developments in the Greater Buchan area, which the Oil and Gas Authority reckons could contain up to 300 million barrels..............

Thanks to Motchjv on the LSE site.

Link below is very interesting. Are we looking at just the tip of a big oily iceberg with Verbier and its going to end up a much bigger discovery ? All adds to the spice of this appraisal well and possible sidetrack.

Classic case of “better to travel than to arrive” today. RNS this morning that Verbier is spudding and the share price falls 6% .....

Causality is hard to determine but the drop could equally be a case of the distressed fund, City Financial, liquidating their position into strength whilst they can. According to this they have 750,000 shares to divest.

If you look at the large volume in other City Financial shares in the last few days (Horizonte Minerals (LON:HZM), Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM), £ROSE) you can see a pattern of large volume and sharp declines on 'no news'.

Is it a buying opportunity? Potentially but quite close to judgement day for Verbier and who knows if there'll be another run up closer to the spud.

Good luck !
