Solo Oil. It will get better here!

Going Up?

It’s looking very good at Solo Oil. Retail punter interest is continuing to drive the sp towards 2p which i’m assured should be breached. Following production testing on Ausable5# the well will be connected to the existing central production facility and placed on production as an oil and natural gas liquids  producer.  The Company’s objective is to have the well on production within the next four weeks they will then push on (Due to the presence of extensive oil and natural gas liquid pay zones in the Ausable #5 well) to begin detailed scheduling for the drilling of the Ausable #6, #7, #8 and #9 wells and the expansion of the Ausable production facility.  Currently it is hoped to complete this additional work by the end of 2011.

I’ve been getting some very positive feed-back not least from the company itself. I have spoken to Neil Ritson at length re’ the recent good news.  I was rather impressed with the professional way he dealt with questions. One pointer here is that Ritson has a very good relationship with the mercurial Leni and it was Leni who head-hunted Ritson. From what I can gather Solo/Ritson are eager to progress their direct 12.5% working interest in the Ruvuma Petroleum Sharing Agreement  in Tanzania following the successful drilling of the Likonde-1 well.  The Ruvuma PSA lies in the south-east of Tanzania and covers approximately 12,360 square kilometres with some 20% of this area offshore and the balance onshore.  Within the Ruvuma PSA are two separate licence areas known as Lindi in the north and Mtwara in the south, contiguous with the Mozambique border.  There are some big-hitters working in this area. Tullow being one. “Following completion of the Likonde-1 well the Tullow operated partnership commissioned the reprocessing of the existing 2D seismic data in order to better image the prospective Tertiary section with a view to selecting a location for the drilling of the second well which is due to be drilled in the PSA during 2011.  At the end of the period that seismic reprocessing was being completed and technical work was underway to select a drilling location.”

They are an interesting Tiddler to watch as they are on a charge. How high will they hit? I should imagine that a 3p  target could easily be reached on further good news from Ontario/Tanzania. Probably doubling to 6p depending on what the news contains.

Eyes on here. Ritson worked 23 years with BP PLC  where he held roles as international chief geophysicist and strategic business unit manager in both Norway and Alaska.  In 1999 he was appointed to run the Burlington Resources Inc businesses in North Africa before becoming Vice President UK in 2001 and VP International in 2003. In-fact it is safe to say that Ritson has vast experience in the oil-industry and is well-respected from within the Industry.

There will be some lows here as is the way of small minnows but the highs will more than make up for them.

Eyes on Solo and research them.

    Ive noticed a lot of people asking Dan about his opinion on a company or for him to research a certain stock. I think it would be great if Dan could take some time out and write up a series of articles(or posts) detailing the hows and whys of stock research (in essence some sort of a tutorial i.e. what fundamentals to look at and why certain figures are good/bad indicators and when certain events are likely to shake the market), easing a lot of us here into stock research to a level where we are confident to do it ourselves and then share and discuss our opinions instead of constantly asking for advice.
    I know I would find that information useful, akin to the ‘give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for life’ principle.

    What is your thoughts on Zenergy power (ZEN) it looks to have bottomed out? Currently valued at £9M Mcap with £9M cash in hand and some great IP. There was a couple of big sellers in the stock which was giving downward pressure on the shareprice, these have now finished (verified by RNS) and there are now 2 organisations currently buying the stock (Southern Fox and Aguaglow Ltd). Also the company have had a mojor reshuffle in the bordroom with new directors who can drive the business forward.
    Would appreciate anything you can tell me from your end and your thoughts on this stock.
