Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of SDX Energy Inc
SDX Energy Inc Snapshot
SDX Energy's strategy is simple: "Create value through high margin production growth". The company is underpinned by a portfolio of high margin producing assets combined with high impact exploration prospects in Egypt and Morocco.
The Company intends to organically increase production and cash flow generation through a fully funded and active work programme consisting of work-over and development wells in its existing assets, combined with high impact exploration drilling.
SDX Energy also intends to leverage its strong balance sheet, early mover advantage and regional network to grow through the acquisition of distressed asset opportunities in North Africa.
SDX Energy maintains a strict financial discipline to ensure an efficient use of funds. The medium-term objective is to achieve production of 3-5kboe/d through the implementation of this stated strategy whilst the long-term objective is to become a material full cycle E&P Company with production in excess of 20kboe/d.
SDX Energy’s portfolio contains interests in 6 concessions in Egypt and Morocco.
In Egypt, SDX Energy has a working interest in two producing assets (50% North West Gemsa & 50% Meseda) located onshore in the Eastern Dessert, adjacent to the Gulf of Suez. In Morocco, SDX has a 75% working interest in the Sebou concession situated in the Rharb Basin. These producing assets are characterised by exceptionally low operating costs making them particularly resilient in a low oil price environment. With combined daily average gross production of 11,200 boe/d (4,705 boe/d net to SDX Energy) and 2P reserves of 12.03 mmboe, these concessions provide a solid and resilient production base for SDX Energy.
SDX Energy’s portfolio also includes high impact exploration opportunities in two concessions. In Egypt (South Disouq) and in Morocco (Lalla Mimouna). These exciting prospects will be the subject of technical studies and exploration drilling in 2017 as SDX Energy seeks to deliver an active work programme and achieve a balanced portfolio of stable production growth and transformational exploration upside.
