    Blue sky Senegalese oil play FAR Ltd has told shareholders all about a planned $US350 million-odd debt raising – but what about its equally if not more ambitious equity offer?

    Street Talk can reveal FAR has spent the past week pitching a $251 million equity raising to fund managers, which was to be done via a placement of new shares and help fund its aim to be one of the biggest ASX-listed oil producers.

    In other words... glad I sold :)

    FAR Ltd launches equity raising, Bell Potter on ticket
    Sarah Thompson, Anthony Macdonald and Tim Boyd
    Dec 10, 2019 — 9.47am

    Oil and gas explorer FAR Ltd has launched a $146 million equity raising to fund its development of an oil field in Senegal.

    The conditional placement was priced at 4.25¢ a share, which represented a 12 per cent discount for FAR's five-day volume-weighted average price, according to terms sent to funds.

    FAR's shares last closed at 5.4¢.

    The placement – foreshadowed by Street Talk – was subject to a shareholder vote in January and receipt of a credit approved term sheet for an underwritten US$350 million senior debt facility by the end of the year.

    Bell Potter was lead manager on the raising and was calling for bids by 2pm on Wednesday.

    In addition to the $146 million placement, FAR was looking to raise up to $30 million via a share purchase plan, funds were told. Eligible shareholders could subscribe for up to $30,000 worth of shares, offered at the placement price.

    The $339 million FAR would use the equity to fund phase one of the Sangomar oil field, in Senegal.

    On Monday night, this column revealed FAR had been spending the past week pitching an equity raising to fund managers.

    The mooted deal was slated as a $251 million placement underwritten by Macquarie Capital and Bell Potter, according to a presentation sent to wall-crossed investors and seen by Street Talk.

    However, come Tuesday morning the placement was $146 million and Macquarie was nowhere to be seen.

    6.2 billion shares on issue plus this raise. Sooner or later they'll probably have to consolidate which would be a disaster for holders IMV.

    You're not wrong @bigdog - I picked up a few at .041 , .040 but it's a quick trade only.

    Don't have much confidence for a long term hold at this point.

    Condolences to holders. What a disaster.

    Cairn Energy reported more than FAR's paragraph yesterday

    https://www.cairnenergy.com/news-me...-field-development-in-senegal/#Tabundefined=1

    Cairn takes Final Investment Decision on Sangomar Field Development in Senegal

    Cairn, along with its joint venture partners, Woodside and FAR, has signed a joint Final Investment Decision (FID) statement, in agreement with Petrosen and the Government of Senegal, at an official ceremony last night with the Minister of Petroleum and Energies, Monsieur Mouhamadou Cisse.

    The FID on Phase 1 of the Sangomar Field Development offshore Senegal follows the receipt last week of the 25-year Exploitation Authorisation from the Government of Senegal.

    Phase 1 of the development will target estimated 2P recoverable oil reserves of 231 mmbbls (gross). Over the life of the field, total recoverable oil resources are estimated to be approximately 500 mmbbls with the development also planning gas export to shore.

    Woodside, as Operator of the joint venture, has completed the purchase contract for the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility and issued full notices to proceed for the drilling and subsea construction and installation contracts.


    The key contractors for the development are:
    • MODEC, Inc, for the purchase of an FPSO with an oil processing capacity of approximately 100,000 barrels per day
    • Subsea Integration Alliance (a non-incorporated alliance between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea) for the construction and installation of the integrated subsea production systems and subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines
    • Diamond Offshore for two well-based contracts for the drill rigs Ocean BlackRhino and Ocean BlackHawk


    Simon Thomson Chief Executive of Cairn said;

    “Cairn’s discoveries offshore Senegal from the country’s first deep water wells opened up a new basin on the Atlantic Margin. Cairn has operated three drilling programmes and successfully laid the foundation for Senegal’s first multi-phase oil and gas development. Senegal is now an attractive oil and gas province, drawing the attention of the global industry.”


    Woodside CEO Peter Coleman1 said;

    “We look forward to progressing the project towards first oil in early 2023 and expect that our experience in offshore FPSO developments will support its delivery on cost and schedule.

    We are grateful for the ongoing support of the Government of Senegal and will be working with all stakeholders to ensure that the country’s first oil project delivers enduring benefits to its people.”



    FAR Managing Director Cath Norman said;

    “This is a momentous milestone for the joint venture and the people of Senegal. We thank all of our stakeholders and look forward to the coming weeks and months before first oil in early 2023.”

    Found this Cairn Energy youtube video about the Sangomar Field Development (4:37 minutes)
    -- explains everything about the development through the flow of oil and gas.



    upload_2020-1-21_19-23-1.png

    https://www.cairnenergy.com/operations/senegal/

    Cairn drilled the first deep water wells offshore Senegal in 2014 and made two basin opening discoveries, one of which, the SNE field, was the largest global oil discovery of 2014.

    Since then, the region has evolved from a frontier basin to an emerging oil play attracting the attention of the global industry. Cairn farmed-in as operator to its three blocks offshore Senegal in 2013 acquiring a 65% interest in the three blocks with a combined acreage of 7,000km2. Since then, Cairn has operated three drilling programmes and has now successfully laid the foundation for a multi-phase development plan of the SNE field.

    In 2018 substantial progress was made on the SNE field multi-phase development with a number of key milestones achieved. Our partner Woodside has now assumed the role of operator, as planned, and the Joint Venture (JV) is targeting a final investment decision in H2 2019 and first oil in 2022.

    The SNE development concept is a stand-alone Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessel facility with a capacity of ~100,000 bopd, with 23 subsea wells and supporting subsea infrastructure. It will be designed to allow subsequent SNE development phases, including options for gas export to shore and for future subsea tiebacks from other reservoirs and fields.

    In January 2019, the JV received approval in principle for the technical basis of the SNE Development and Exploitation Plan and confirmation that the licence covering the SNE development area would be extended to allow for the conclusion of FEED and to mature financing activities during 2019 prior to Exploitation Licence award. Separately, the JV has been granted a two-year exploration period extension for the PSC areas covering FAN and SNE North/Spica, in order to undertake further evaluation.

    The Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was submitted in 2018 and approved in January 2019.

    Project finance has been successfully launched with detailed work underway on financing structures for the JV.

    upload_2020-1-21_19-33-28.png

    SNE Subsea layout

    FEED activities for the subsea contract and for the FPSO facility have been awarded to Subsea Integration Alliance and MODEC International Inc, respectively. Subsea and FPSO FEEDs are now complete.

    The JV acquired a high resolution 3D seismic survey in Q2/3 2019 in order to improve reservoir definition and support development well placement.

    We have a 40% interest in three blocks offshore Senegal (Sangomar Deep, Sangomar Offshore, Rufisque Offshore) alongside our Joint Venture partners Woodside 35%, Far Ltd 15% and the Senegal National Oil Company, Petrosen 10%.

    ASX Announcement today
    14/02/2020 9:49:18 AM Arbitration Decision

    upload_2020-2-14_10-41-27.png

    A very disappointing announcement and a very sad day for holders; they got it wrong.

    Bigger holders than all of us will now determine the fate of this organisation and its management. Let's hope whatever that is can be favourable to holders.

    SP all time down low of $0.031 for a past 10 years!
