Production from first drilled well is coming. The Eoff PPC #3 well in the Breedlove Field was completed in October and is going through a Flowback Recovery Period (removal of liquids). It was shut down due to freezing temperatures. Management expects full production by the end of February and will disclose flow rates then. The company hinted that it will probably go forward with converting the well to a horizontal well at an additional $1.1 million cost.
Cash is tight. Permex’s cash position is down to $2.5 million, not enough to drill another well. The company is opposed to taking on debt (which we agree with) because debt is the Achilles heel of start-up energy companies should energy prices decline. The company discussed selling acreage but indicated that it neither has a large contiguous field to sell (outside of its Breedlove Field position) nor does it have small, producing property that might be of interest to energy companies. Management would like to issue stock but not at the current stock price of 4% of net asset value.
