Half Yearly's They mention share holder return being the priority numerous times, in fact much more than I would have expected. Sounds like they might mighty even give a special dividend or something? As the share price has been so bad for so long that might be the only way of helping the situation.

Half Yearly's Results tomorrow…most of our news to reveal itself in the next 3 months or so…tomorrow would be a good start although i’m not expecting much. SP free of seller and recovery…FID resolution…Mexico block 5 spud all to come in the next few months with positive and negative outcomes possible. Plenty of organisations taking up the slack on the shares…they can’t all be wrong esp. Hotchkis who must know SailingStone very well and have taken up much of the slack at favourable prices…orchestrated? you decide. best of luck

Mexico and Santos News Deep-water wildcats on Mexico menu Key wells to be spudded in fourth quarter, most of which are on deep-water acreage awarded in 2016 round Kathrine Schmidt Houston 6 Sep 2018 220 GMT Share: E-mail Mexico’s private operators are gearing up for what could be an exciting few months of exploration in late 2018 after years of careful planning. The key wells set to start in the fourth quarter — other than Talos Energy’s appraisal of the Zama discovery in shallow water — will stem largely from contracts awarded in Mexico’s first deep-water bid process in 2016. The highest-profile of those wells is the Trion probe from BHP, set to go down after the company wraps up with a trio of wells off Trinidad currently in progress, with work under way by the Transocean drillship Deepwater Invictus. The plan is to sail to the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico in the fourth quarter to drill the company’s first appraisal of the Trion discovery, where BHP is partnered with Pemex in the state-led company’s only deep-water farm-out. The company has also permitted several exploration prospects near Trion to fulfill the minimum work programme of two wells. BHP chief executive Andrew Mackenzie said in a recent investor call that the company did not find “particular cause for alarm” with the change in administration relative to the company’s work on Trion. “We have a great relationship right now with Pemex,” he told analysts. “We have been able to progress all the approvals to drill the well pretty much in line with what we expected. We have seen other opportunities to drill.” Prospects France’s Total won the contract for Block 2 in Perdido in Mexico’s inaugural deep-water Round 1.4 in 2016, along with US supermajor ExxonMobil, and plans to spud the Etzil-1 well there this December. Murphy, another victorious operator from Round 1.4, says it will now kick off drilling of its first prospect, Palenque, in the fourth quarter. The well is set to be a first-of-its kind deep-water probe in the southern Salina del Istmo basin, which has been a prolific producer in shallow waters but has seen little exploratory activity in deeper waters. The block in question, Contractual Area 5, was the most competitive of that first deep-water round, and was captured by Murphy in partnership with Petronas, Sierra Oil & Gas and Ophir Energy. In a call with investors last month, Murphy chief executive Roger Jenkins referred to the prospects as some of the “nicest” he has seen in his career, and was likewise nonplussed in regard to the change in government or its possible effect on the company’s immediate work programme. “I’m not sure about where future leases will be, but we have ours, we feel good about it, we feel good about what we’re hearing,” he told analysts. “We’re progressing through an approval process to drill, we’re moving full on with that, and do not see anything in that election to prevent that at this time.” In May the CNH approved Murphy’s exploration plan, a proposed $90 million work programme overall which would see the well drilled in about 750 metres of water some 120 kilometres off Tabasco state. It will aim to target middle and lower Miocene objectives, with a total target depth of 4000 metres. If successful, the partners could also opt to drill a delineation well, which would bring the investment closer to $158 million. The block covers 2573 square kilometres, with water depths ranging between 450 and 1450 metres. Estimate Murphy sees a mean pre-drill estimate for the prospect at 200 million barrels of oil equivalent with 500 million boe as an upside, with a net well cost to the company of about $15 million. China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), which landed two blocks and committed to three wells in Round 1.4, could also see operations kick off in the early part of 2019, according to exploration plans approved by the CNH. The plan outlined two scenarios. The first would involve the drilling of the Ameyali 1 EXP well, which would target upper Wilcox objectives that represent the best-imaged structure to date on the blocks, CNH officials said. That could result in the incorporation of reserves of up to 225 million barrels. Then, if successful, a delineation well could fulfill the two-well requirement. In an alternative scenario, CNOOC would also drill a second exploration prospect called Tlami 1 EXP, which could also yield its own delineator in the event of positive results. The second round of drilling might not take place until early 2021, however, near the end of the four-year exploration phase. Upstream has previously reported that the CNOOC semi-submersible Bluewhale I could be in contention to carry out the work on the blocks. Other operators from the initial batch of deep-water blocks let in 2016 saw approval of exploration plans this year, but drilling is farther out. Statoil won approval for an exploration plan for Area 3 in the Salina basin that calls for one prospect, Hunab, to be drilled in late 2019. Meanwhile, BP has penciled in drilling at a prospect called Serrano in Area 1 of the Salina basin in the third quarter of 2020. The last two winners in Round 1.4, a grouping of Chevron, Pemex and Inpex on Area 3 in the Perdido area, and Petronas with Sierra on Area 4 of the Salina basin, did not commit to any wells in the round, focusing instead on seismic and studies. Santos completes asset sale Ophir Energy completes acquisition of stakes in Asia Josh Lewis 6 Sep 2018 23:49 GMT Updated 6 Sep 2018 23:57 GMT Share: E-mail Australian company Santos has completed the sale of its non-core Asian assets to London-based independent Ophir Energy. Santos confirmed Friday it had completed the sale of the assets following the initial deal originally agreed in May. It said it had received cash proceeds of US$144 million at completion, representing a sale price of US$221 million after standard adjustments including net free cash flows generated by the assets from the transaction effective date of 1 January 2018 through to completion. Included in the sale was Santos’ 31.875% interest the Block 12W production sharing contract and 50% stake in the Block 123 PSC in Vietnam, its 67.5% stake in the Madura offshore PSC and 45% share in the Sampang PSC in Indonesia, its 20% interest in the deep-water Block R PSC in Malaysia and its 45% stake in the SS-11 PSC in Bangladesh. Block 12W contains the Chim Sao and Dua oilfields, Madura contains the Maleo and Peluang gas field, Sampang hosts the Oyong and Wortel gas fields, while Block R contains the Bestari oil discovery. Santos will use the funds received from the sale in September to help reduce its net debt, which stood at US$2.2 billion as of 31 August. The company said Friday it looks set to reach its US$2 billion net debt target by next month, more than a year ahead of schedule. The potential bounce here may be considerable…it may have been planned that way from a long way out? best of luck
