This is from an e-mail reply I received from them when I enquired re. delisting: "The proposed de-listing is still subject to a shareholders vote, after which your shares may be transferred to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). The relevant information will be set out in a circular to shareholders in due course. This will include detailed steps of the processes involved and the options at your disposal."
Re: Pretty poor... de-listing what it means is that you can chase the company registrars down to see how to trade if they stay publicly quoted anywhere but in my experience it means effectively they've stolen your money yes
Re: Pretty poor... de-listing ive never owned a stock thats been delisted before. I guess this means I've lost my money ?Wonder what went wrong, I always did think the company never moved forward and was fraught with problems but it was my high risk punt.
Pretty poor... de-listing basically means small PI's have just lost their pants on this one.. who knows how to trade on the JSE?
[link] What does this mean for us? How long before trading can commence again
I am wondering if Sacoil will start moving up from the current Share Price from this point? (JSE Share price is very low)
South African oil and gas junior SacOil is optimistic that energy major Total could initiate a drilling campaign in 2017 on a resource in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), following positive geophysical exploration results. The French group is the operating partner over the 3 177-km2-licence area, known as Block III, and recently completed the acquisition of 244 km of 2D seismic data over the northern part of the block. The onshore acreage, which lies to south of Lake Albert, in DRC, also forms part of a larger basin, which has been the subject of extensive exploration on the to Uganda side of the border. In fact, Total and others have made significant discoveries in Uganda and the group has signalled its intention to develop multiple oil finds, which could be evacuated through a planned $3.5-billion Uganda-Tanzania export pipeline. SacOil group executive operations, Bradley Cerff, tells Engineering News Online that the JSE-listed company is also heartened by the initial exploration results in Block III and that it is looking forward to the initiation of the future drilling campaign. The licence conditions associated with Block III stipulate that drilling should occur by mid-2018, but Cerff is hopeful that Total could well move ahead during the course of 2017. “We are moving into the nuts-and-bolts phase,” he explains, noting that, over the past six years, the partners have come to grips with the regional geology. “What we need to do now is test the geological model through drilling the first well on the DRC side of the border.” The focus currently is on selecting the best possible geological location for the first well so as to “prove that there is a working petroleum system in that area”. For SacOil, which acquired the block in 2010 and currently holds a 12.5% interest, proving the asset would also be a significant development, particularly following a recent reorganisation of ownership structure, enabling it to directly represent its interest in Block III. Cerff says that, besides the producing Lagia oilfield, in Egypt, the DRC asset is the most advanced in the JSE- and Aim-listed company’s upstream portfolio and central to its ambitions of becoming a pan-African oil and gas company.

finnCap note out this morning on Research Tree: "SacOil’s new management team has delivered on its new strategy over the past two years: the company has successfully developed its first production project, which has the ability to generate substantial value as the project is expanded further; it has also built up an extensive exploration portfolio across three countries. Furthermore, SacOil is active in the downstream and is examining multiple project-led opportunities to expand its presence and ability to create value."
Re: block 1 licence renewal "We have updated our model to reflect SacOils latest CPR. A more conservative production profile has resulted in a slight reduction of... After the successful completion of the Companys Phase II drilling program, which achieved peak production of 1,000 bbl/d, current production is at c.650-800 bbl/d, several orders of magnitude greater than before Phase II.This primarily involved drilling five additional low cost wells (c.US$0.5 mm each)."FirstEnergy's note out this morning, taken from research tree.
