**Breakdown of September's Production Payment** If one takes the Contractor combined split of the Profit of $5,546,997.45 and divide it my the September Oil Production, the resulting figure should be how much the Contractors, GKP & MOL, gain Net per barrel from Shaikan $5,546,997.45 ÷ 1,110,000 = $4.997295 Add on the Lifting costs of $3.9 +$4.997295 = $8.897295, (£6.84), which is close to what GKP have always stated

**Breakdown of the September Production Payment** I’ve checked and re-checked my figures & calculations but even so, please check yourselves The Calculations are for a R-Factor of 22.5%—77.5% based on the September Production & Payment, and are to show how GKP use Shaikan PSC Terms of Contract to work out Shaikans Production Payments Screencast.com 2020-02-21_1346 Shared from Screencast.com . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Production 37,000bpd x 30 = 1,110,000b x $41.13 = $45,654,300 . . (courtesy of @ValueSeeker8) $45,654,300 – 10% KRG Royalty Payment = $41,088,870 $41,088,870 x 40% = $16,435,548 Contractors Costs Recovery $41,088,870 x 60% = $24,653,322 Profit Oil The $24,653,322 Profit Oil is then split by the R-Factor of 22.5----77.5% $24,653,322 x 22.5% = $5,546,997.45 . . . is split along the WI Lines of 80% GKP 20% MOL $24,653,322 x 77.5% = $19,106,324.55 . . goes straight to the KRG The $5,546,997.45 Contractor Share of the Profit Oil divided along WI Lines of 80% & 20% = GKP . $4,437,597.96 . . . MOL . $1,109,399.49 GKP as the Main Contractor has to pay the 40% Capacity Building Tax GKP $4,437,597.96 x 40% = ($1,775,039.18 CB Tax) = $2,662,558.88 GKP Profit Oil $16,435,548 Contractors Costs Recovery is split along WI Lines $16,435,548 x 80% & 20% = GKP . $13,148,438.40 . . . MOL . $3,287,109.60 MOL Cost Recovery . $3,287,109.60 + Profit Oil $1,109,399.49 = $4,396,509.09 GKP Cost Recovery . $13,148,438.40 + Profit Oil $2,662,558.88 = $15,810,997.18 MOL’s $4,396,509.09 + GKP’s $15,810,997.18 = So in my opinion the R-Factor GKP are using to calculated the Oil Revenue Payments is pretty damn close to a R-Factor of 22.5% - - - 77.5% Please Note. In the following RNS it states . . the payment is “($15.8 million net to GKP)” which means there are no further deductions [link]

**Is Valueseeker8 Claim that GKP is Trading at a Loss True** Based on a 20----80% Profit Oil Split $45,654,300 minus 10% KRG Royalty = $41,088,870 $41,088,870 x 40% = $16,435,548 Cost Recovery divided by Working Interest $41,088,870 x 60% = $24,653,322 Profit Oil divided by 20–80% split $16,435,548 Cost Recovery equates to GKP receiving $13,148,438.4 and MOL receiving $3,287,109.6 The KRG gets 80% of the Profit Oil, $24,635,322 x 80% = $19,708,257.6 GKP & MOL get 20% of the Profit Oil, $24,635,322 x 20% = $4,927,064.4 MOL gets 20% of the Profit Oil and 20% of the Cost Recovery $4,927,064.4 x 20% = $985,412.88 + $3,287,109.6 Cost Recovery = $4,272,522.48 GKP Pays the 40% Capacity Building Tax on its Profit Oil $4,927,064.4 x 80% = $3,941,651.52 x 40% = $1,576,660.61 Capacity Tax Payment. $3,941,651.52 - $1,576,660.61 = $2,364,990.91 is GKP’s Share of the Profit Oil GKP Profit Oil $2,364,990.91 + GKP Cost Recovery $13,148,438.4 = $15.513,429.31 Getting closer to the magic $15.8m figure

**Is Valueseeker8 Claim that GKP is Trading at a Loss True** Screencast.com 2020-02-24_0846 Shared from Screencast.com The actual Lifting costs as detailed in the Corporate Presentation January 2020 are $3.9, and as can be seen it is an opex (Operating Expense) which is claimable back under the PSC Licence via the Cost Recovery route. 1,110,000 x $3.9 = $4,329,000 Screencast.com 2020-02-21_1346 Shared from Screencast.com The above screenshot is of the Shaikan “Production Sharing Contract,” Summary of Terms, which in short, is the Holy Grail from which GKP calculates all the Production Payments. So if it’s not in the Summary of Terms, then any calculation one can think of should not be used. At the end of each Month, by using the above GKP has 10 days to calculate how much Oil has been Produced, at what Price relative to Brent, and at what Operating Expense, and deliver those Calculations to the MNR/KRG before or by the 10th day of the Month. Once received the MNR/KRG will check and agree the amount claimed, then Payment will be made at a time of the MNR/KRG’s choosing. (that is when the simple clockwork mechanism goes to pot) Please see the Screenshot below for confirmation of Article 3.11 Screencast.com 2020-02-20_0857 Shared from Screencast.com The “Production Sharing Contract,” Summery of Terms, lays out in detail how the Summary of Term should be used . . . and as GKP signed up to the Contract it should be viewed as a Legal Document. It is clearly stated that there are two independent calculation streams, on the left, in percentage terms of (40% of 90%) is Cost Recovery which is actually “36%” of the full 100% of the Gross Revenue after the KRG Royalty Payment is removed. Included in the Cost Recovery are all Shaikan Operating Expenses (opex) which of course include Lifting Costs and everything else which is deemed an Operating Expense. And on the right are the calculations that GKP uses to calculate the Profit Oil Payments to the KRG, MOL & GKP. GKP as the Main Contractor is solely responsible for making the calculations Please Note . . . there is no subtractions crossing from the Cost Recovery side to the Profit Oil side , they are two completely separate Calculations, which are shown joining together at the Contractor 30–15% R-Factor stage, before being Split between the Contractors along Working Interest lines, MOL 20% & GKP 80% At the R-Factor split stage at no point does it show any deductions for any Costs, Lifting or otherwise, but in the final box “GKPI 80%” is does say “less Capacity Building on Share of Profit Oil” which I am believe to be 40% but could possibly be 30% However there is a calculation missing from the “Production Sharing Contract,” Summery of Terms . . . and that is the current R-Factor percentage figure that are in use, which are between 30—70 and 15—85, and as the only variable in the entire Production Sharing Contract," Summery of Terms, the amount has to play an important part in the calculations. I’ve tried working backward without success, so the only way the correct R-Factor can be obtained is by a process of elimination. Using the September Production figures 30—70 split I got $18,174,132.65 which is to high Using the same September figures and a 15—85 split I got $14,920,535.66 which is to low So the correct R-Factor percentage that’s being used is somewhere in between the two extremes, possibly 20—80 or 23—77

**Is Valueseeker8 Claim that GKP is Trading at a Loss True** MikeyAdmin: I will prove why @ValueSeeker8 is wrong and how & why @ValueSeeker8 is wrong later Unless of course @ValueSeeker8 realises his mistake and retracts his Statement seriously dude who gives a sh*t whether someone elses opinions are right or wrong and what gives you the right to be the forums self appointed judge and jury given you yourself have posted hundreds (if not thousands) of misleading posts over the years both on here and on other like minded forums !!! what a pathetic 60 something year old BULLY you are turning out to be and its no wonder everyone has deserted this place nowadays get yourself a frigging life

**Is Valueseeker8 Claim that GKP is Trading at a Loss True** “May I remind you that it costs money to extract oil and process it to export standards. Currently it’s circa $4 per barrel. This means that GKP and MOL had to spend circa $4,440,000 in order to produce 1,110,000 barrels of oil. Since GKP WI = 80%, then the cost to GKP is $3,552,000. And given that GKP’s net payment is $15.8 m, out of which is a $13,148,438.4 payment via the cost recovery route (capex recovery). This means that GKP received $2,651,561.6 via the profit oil route! This is not enough to cover the extraction cost (opex recovery)!! Meaning that, operationally, GKP made a loss of $900,438.4 during September 2019!!!” OFF COURSE NOT. @ValueSeeker8’s claims are completely False @ValueSeeker8 is totally wrong and I will prove why @ValueSeeker8 is wrong and how & why @ValueSeeker8 is wrong later Unless of course @ValueSeeker8 realises his mistake and retracts his Statement
