Q1 2022 MD&A Highlights

New Zealand

The Company has operations in the Taranaki Basin of New Zealand. All licenses were previously operated by the Company’s original partner, TAG Oil Ltd. (“TAG”), and all wells are targeted shallow Miocene targets in the Urenui and Mt. Messenger formations which have been shown to be productive for oil and gas throughout the Basin, including the Cheal field. The Company holds a 30% working interest in the Petroleum Exploration Permit (“PEP”) 54877 and the Petroleum Mining Permit PMP 60291 (“Cheal East”) and TAG held the remaining 70%. In September 2019 TAG completed the sale of substantially all of its Taranaki Basin assets and operations which included their interest in PEP 54877 and PMP 60291 to Tamarind Resources Pte. Ltd. (“Tamarind”). In light of TAG’s decision to sell the majority of its interest in the Taranaki Basin assets the Company assessed its options with respect to its 30% interest in Cheal East and, on June 24, 2019, the Company signed a heads of agreement pursuant to which the Company had agreed to sell its 30% interest in PEP 54877 and PMP 60291. On August 1, 2020 the Company terminated the Definitive Agreement. The Company continues to assess its go-forward plans, which includes the possible sale of its New Zealand concessions to other buyers.

During fiscal 2022 Cheal conducted a detailed prospectivity review of PEP 54877 and advised the Company that the forecasted economic prospects of PEP 54877 does not meet Cheal’s internal risk criteria. Although no final decision has been made to relinquish the permit in December 2022, the Company determined to record an impairment of $1,627,056 for costs incurred to March 31, 2022.

During Q1/2023 the Company produced 18.1 Mbbl oil and 15.7 Mmcf gas compared to 18.3 Mbbl oil and 11.6 Mmcf gas during Q4/2022. The Cheal-E5 was offline for all of Q4/2022 and Q1/2023. The Cheal-E5 went down due to a downhole related issue which appears to be parted rods. A full workover of the Cheal-E5 well was completed during Q1/2023 and the Cheal-E5 came back on line on June 30, 2022. Approximately 385 bbls of kill fluid needed to be recovered after the workover and oil production started again on July 7, 2022. The Cheal-E6 went offline during Q3/2022 due to downhole related issues which appears to be a wax plug. The operator carried out rod work and installed a new pump while the well was off line. The Cheal-E6 started back on-line near the end of Q4/2022 and was fully producing for all of Q1/2023.

Romania

During fiscal 2010 the Company was informed by the government of Romania that it had been awarded four exploration blocks located in the Pannonian Basin, in western Romania. In May 2011 the Company signed petroleum concession agreements with the National Agency for Minerals and Hydrocarbons (“NAMR”) the government agency in Romania which regulates the oil and gas industry. The four concessions have specific mandatory work programs (the “Romania Work Programs”), which were estimated at US $63,000,000 for all four programs. Production from the concessions is also subject to royalties of between 3.5% to 13.5% based on quarterly gross production payable to the government.

Without a joint declaration of a commercial discovery it is the Company’s position that commercial development of the field cannot proceed, NIS did not share this opinion. Rather than litigating this issue the discussions continued with NIS in an attempt to find a way forward. Given the consequences of a commercial discovery decision and significant funding obligations the Company and NIS continued negotiations on all available options including a monetization event. Negotiations were progressing well and the parties were moving towards final documentation with essential terms of a monetization event agreed, being some limited cash and a royalty interest. The outbreak of war between Ukraine and Russian brought all attempts to implement the agreed terms to a halt, with the issue being that NIS is owned, in part, by a Russian entity which is subject to sanctions. The Company is considering what steps could be implemented to allow the transaction to proceed.

Total sales revenues increased from $290,042 in Q1/2022 to $1,016,787 in Q1/2023. The increase is attributable to a an increase in total sales volumes due to significantly higher production during Q1/2023 compared to Q1/2022. During Q1/2022 the Cheal-E1 well, which is the Company’s biggest producing well, and the Cheal-E2 well were offline due to blockages.

Commitments

The Company’s share of expected exploration and development permit obligations and/or commitments as at June 30, 2022 are approximately $620,000 to be incurred during fiscal 2023. The Company may choose to alter the program, request extensions, reject development costs, relinquish certain permits or farm-out its interest in permits where practical.

Outstanding Share Data

The Company’s authorized share capital is unlimited common shares with no par value. As at August 29, 2022 there were 89,585,665 outstanding common shares and 2,790,000 share options outstanding with exercise prices ranging from $0.06 to $0.135 per share.

East West Petroleum: Stocks trading at Less Than Cash Value on TSX-V (EW)

The Globe and Mail - Sun Sep 25, 7:02AM CDT

(article can be found on Google)

East West Petroleum is among the group of TSX Venture Exchange companies currently trading at less than cash value. This means companies whose current share price is less than the cash per share on their balance sheet or stocks with more cash than market cap. (Chart shows P/E of 4.009)

This report is generated monthly. It also shows the value of cash net debt per share to show how much cash per share would be left if the debt was paid off. Stocks in this category are held primarily for speculation. Companies can have more cash per share than the actual share price for a number of reasons including that they just raised capital, are in industries that experience high burn rates and will eat through the cash quickly or there is a lot of uncertainty about the future of the company. Companies earning a positive net income will have a price-to-earnings, or P/E, ratio greater than zero and are worth exploring in more detail.

More about East West Petroleum

East West Petroleum Corp is an oil and gas exploration and production company. It is engaged in exploring, developing and producing from its oil and gas properties. Its current portfolio is made up of exploration concessions in New Zealand and Romania.

News Article - Serbia Won't Rule Out Nationalizing Its Oil Industry

This is good news for East West as it would allow the company to complete the cash & royalty deal mentioned in their management discussion information:

On page 4 of MD&A - Negotiations were progressing well and the parties were moving towards final documentation with essential terms of a monetization event agreed, being some limited cash and a royalty interest. The outbreak of war between Ukraine and Russian brought all attempts to implement the agreed terms to a halt, with the issue being that NIS is owned, in part, by a Russian entity which is subject to sanctions. The Company is considering what steps could be implemented to allow the transaction to proceed.

I can't post the Financial Times article on here, so you'll have to Google it.

Romania

Without a joint declaration of a commercial discovery it is the Company’s position that commercial development of the field cannot proceed, NIS did not share this opinion. Rather than litigating this issue the discussions continued with NIS in an attempt to find a way forward. Given the consequences of a commercial discovery decision and significant funding obligations the Company and NIS continued negotiations on all available options including a monetization event. Negotiations were progressing well and a non-binding letter of intent was finalized. The parties were moving towards final documentation with essential terms of a monetization event agreed, being a cash payment of US $500,000 and a royalty interest of 2.1%, as defined. The outbreak of war between Ukraine and Russia brought all attempts to implement the agreed terms to a halt, with the issue being that NIS is owned, in part, by a Russian entity which is subject to Canadian government sanctions. The Company and NIS are working on the final documentation to implement the agreed terms once closing is possible.

Just a little refresher for current shareholders and new investors regarding Romania:

Cannot post the link. Please see East West Petroleum website:

The original deal struck between East West Petroleum and NIS in 2011 was that NIS would earn 85% interest in this 1,007,500-acre project by completing the first phase of work, having an estimated budget of $62,335,000 USD and proving production capabilities on the first part of the package.

This has been achieved and facilities + test production is going on as we speak at the moment, as per the most recent NIS financial report:

Cannot post the link. Please see NIS website for more information:

(see pages 5, 6, 24, 34) – All dialogue regarding Teremia is based on the land parcel with East West

Recently, East West made a deal with NIS to sell it’s remaining 15% stake in exchange for $500,000 USD and a 2.1% Royalty on production from anywhere on the 1,007,500-acre project, without any time or value cap. This makes sense because NIS is a multi billion-dollar company from Serbia and East West cannot keep up investing in such a large project. However, NIS can easily pay EW several million dollars a year from a royalty standpoint, in order to fully control and produce from this lease. Keeping in mind this is just the first phase of the project and there are many other drill targets to search for Oil/Gas.

What stops this deal from completing at the moment are sanctions from the Russia/Ukraine war. Gazprom owns a 56% stake in NIS, which doesn’t allow for the deal to be completed. In the meantime, Serbia has looked at either selling Gazproms stake in the company, or nationalizing NIS. This is because sanctions will begin for Serbia soon, based on association with Gazprom, and NIS is the largest company in country. Either solution would allow for the deal to be completed.

In the end, this royalty has tremendous value because it allows East West to generate cash flow from the lease, without any production cost risk. Payments will vary somewhat from quarter to quarter, but it would continue for quite some time.
