Calima Energy Ltd - Calima Energy maintains momentum with daily production up 14% and revenue 20% in July

Calima Energy Ltd (ASX:CE1) continues to make considerable progress with its Canadian-focused oil & gas strategy evidenced by strong revenue and production figures in July.

Average daily production during the month was 3,291 barrels of oil equivalent, an increase of 14% or 408 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

This resulted in a 20% increase in revenue, net of royalties, to A$4.9 million, up from A$4.1 million in June.

Improved figures

Other encouraging progress in July came with operating netback increasing 23% to A$2.5 million from A$2 million the previous month while funds flow was up 35% to A$2.2 million from $1.6 million.

Capital expenditure on the Gemini and Thorsby projects in Alberta, Canada, was 36% lower at A$2.7 million during July while net debt was up 5.4% to A$17.2 million as a result of the Gemini and Leo drilling campaigns.

The improved figures in July were supported by a 1% increase in the realised oil price to C$74.17 per barrel and a 13% lift in the realised gas price to C$4.17 per thousand cubic feet.

Calima’s progress during 2021 has prompted Hannam & Partners to increase its risked NAV (Net Asset value) to A$0.0255 per share from A$0.0245 per share, a considerable premium to the current price of A$0.0095.

Hannam analyst Anish Kapadia last month said, Calima is “trading on 2.5x EV/EBITDA or adjusted for the value of the Montney (not generating EBITDA) implied in the share price prior to the Blackspur deal of ~C$25 million, it is trading on <2x EBITDA.

“Furthermore, with significantly higher Canadian gas prices and deal activity in the Montney, the market value of these assets should be significantly higher than C$25 million."

Montney exposure

Calima is an Australian listed exploration and production company, focused on Canada, an established energy market with a supportive energy policy.

It has exposure to a large-scale wet gas play in the Montney and - with the completion of its C$61.5 million acquisition of Blackspur on May 3 - low-cost, high-return, oil-weighted assets in Alberta.

The Blackspur acquisition has been integral to Calima’s performance, giving it near-term cash flow and production growth.
