CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

Though 2017 was a year of partial oil price recovery, the question remains if this is a sign of reduced volatility and that the global oil market is finally finding its supply-demand balance.

Since 2014, a prolonged period of volatility has led to junior natural resource companies facing operational challenges and restricting their access to capital markets. We successfully navigated through this period without significant losses in our core values, and given the markets were still unsupportive, we managed to reduce our exposure to mid-term exploration. In 2017, we implemented our strategy of exiting from the Mauritanian C-10 block at low cost and also reduced our position in the Somaliland Odewayne block.

Oil production from the Chinguetti field ceased at the end of the year. Following a negotiated Deed of Termination settlement in January 2018, we are no longer exposed to this asset and the potential for escalating costs and project scope creep.

Following a period of instability in the oil market, many large portfolios of assets have been available for reorganisation and divestment. Numerous technically sound and material upstream opportunities have come to the market and were pursued by our team during 2017. No deals were concluded in the year, although due diligence is ongoing on a number of opportunities.

Financial

In 2017, business costs were further reduced by continued rationalisation of our structure and overheads. The Group had cash resources of $81.4 million at the end of 2017 (prior to the Chinguetti Funding Agreement termination settlement) and we remain free of debt with our work programme for 2018 fully funded. 

Board and changes

In December 2017, Eskil Jersing elected to accept another appointment and resigned from the CEO role. The Board is currently reviewing options to further optimise the governance of the Company and will make appointments in due course. We would like to thank Eskil for his excellent contribution and achievements during his CEO tenure.

Outlook for 2018 and beyond

The outlook for 2018 to 2019 is positive. The Company is now in a good shape to pursue real time opportunities in our regions of focus and with strong expertise. Should market conditions worsen, we will preserve our capabilities and strengths, accordingly.

I would like to thank all our stakeholders for their continuing support and all of our management and staff for their diligent efforts during 2017.

 

Michael Kroupeev - Chairman

 

 

CEO'S STATEMENT

Market Landscape

The previous year has seen oil prices move within a relatively narrow band between $52 and $60. This period of price stability has allowed for better Upstream sector planning and more efficient project execution. This is in part due to OPEC and non OPEC members, led by Russia, agreeing to continue production cuts through into 2018.

The Oil and Gas industry continues on its slow recovery which though prolonged, will likely persist in constraining oil prices. This assumes ongoing compliance with OPEC led global production targets and recognises uncertainty around the likelihood of US shale oil production growth in the second half of 2018. As a result, market conditions remain somewhat strained as Companies seek greater returns on upstream investments amid capital markets being highly selective in their funding appetite for the E&P sector.

Shareholder alignment and Strategy

The Board, led by the major shareholder, Michael Kroupeev, has continued on the 2016 strategic mandate of repositioning the Company to execute on M&A led material cash flow generating asset(s) or Corporate solutions to the shareholders. In parallel, the overarching focus for management has been on continued cash preservation and reduction of outstanding asset liability exposure, in particular with respect to the Chinguetti oil field abandonment and decommissioning ('A&D') project.

Through early 2018 we have delivered on those initiatives, bar executing on a material M&A transaction. As a result, Sterling retains a unique position in the AIM listed E&P sector, with a strong cash platform of $48.8 million (post Chinguetti Deed of Termination as at 31 January 2018), lower G&A cost base and no liabilities, from which to leverage material growth.

Operations

The Group has had a Funding and Royalty Agreement based economic interest in the offshore Chinguetti oil field in Mauritania. The joint venture ('JV') participants, led by the Operator, Petronas, worked towards CoP at the end of 2017, through a safe, compliant and cost effective A&D project plan.

Given the corporate strategy and significant exposure to potentially major A&D operational risk and cost overruns, Sterling agreed to terminate the Funding Agreement on Chinguetti in January 2018 for $32.6 million. This was the culmination of almost two years of negotiations and persistence. The crystallisation of this liability exposure has cleaned up our balance sheet and allows for significantly improved optionality on the Company's strategic mandate.

On the C-10 block in Mauritania; in November 2017, we undertook a disciplined exit given the low likelihood of commercial hub-class risked potential. This was based on an extensive subsurface evaluation undertaken over the last two years. Subsequently, a penalty payment of $1.1 million for not fulfilling the minimum work obligations has been made to the Government as of March 2018.

With regards the Odewayne block in Somaliland; in April 2017, we reduced our overall cash exposure, by amending the farm-out agreement whilst still maintaining a material 34% working interest in the asset. Subsequently, we successfully and safely completed a ca. 1,000km regional 2D seismic acquisition program in Q3 2017 and will be trial line processing the data in house in Q1 2018.

Corporate

In June 2017 we completed a capital reduction reducing the nominal share value from 40 pence to 10 pence in order to eliminate our retained deficit, create distributable reserves, allow for the flexibility to make returns of capital to the shareholders and give the Company the option to issue new capital, should it be desirable to do so.

In October 2017, we moved to a smaller and more cost effective office space in Holborn and will see further G&A cost savings materialise into 2018.

Finally, I would like to truly thank the team at Sterling. They have my utmost respect and gratitude for their dedication and professionalism these last three years. It has been an honour to serve as your CEO leading the changed mandate. It is fitting that Sterling should embark on its next phase under new leadership, with a fresh and clean platform for growth. I wish my successor all the very best in steering the future progress of the Company to create shareholder value.

OPERATIONS REVIEW

Since late 2015, the Company has continued with a strategic mandate of exiting non-core exploration portfolio assets and reducing outstanding liabilities, to provide a simpler and rejuvenated platform for M&A led growth. The Group's remaining African exploration focused Odewayne block provides fully carried exposure to a frontier basin that has the potential to deliver material hydrocarbon reserves.

SOMALILAND

Somaliland offers one of the last opportunities to target an undrilled onshore Mesozoic rift basin in Africa. The Odewayne block, with access to Berbera deepwater port less than a 100km to the north, is ideally located to explore this frontier basin. A 2D geophysical survey acquired in 2017, along with potential field data and legacy geological field studies help corroborate the presence of a sedimentary basin with further evidence for a working hydrocarbon system.

Odewayne (W.I. 34%) Exploration block

Overview

This large and unexplored frontier acreage position comprises an area of 22,840km2, the equivalent of ca. 100 UK North Sea blocks. Exploration activity prior to the 2017 regional 2D seismic acquisition program has been limited to the acquisition of airborne gravity and magnetic data and surface fieldwork studies, with no wells drilled on block.

The Odewayne production sharing agreement ('PSA') was awarded in 2005. It is in the Third Period, with a minimum work obligation of 500km of 2D seismic. The Third Period has been extended to 2 November 2019, through the 6th deed of amendment. The minimum work obligation during the optional Fourth Period of the PSA (also extended by 2 years to May 2020) is for 1,000km of 2D seismic and one exploration well.

The Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Sterling Energy (East Africa) Limited ('SE(EA)L'), holds a 34% working interest in the PSA. SE(EA)L originally acquired a 10% position from Petrosoma Limited ('Petrosoma') in November 2013 and an additional 30% from Jacka Resources Somaliland Limited ('Jacka') in two transactions during 2014.

In April 2017, the Company agreed to revised farm-out terms to reduce the staged contingent consideration payments due to Petrosoma and reduce SE(EA)L's interest in the Odewayne asset by 6%. The farm-out agreement was amended such that the parties cancelled the $8.0 million contingent consideration in return for: (i) a payment by SE(EA)L to Petrosoma of $3.5 million; and (ii) a transfer from SE(EA)L to Petrosoma of a 6% interest in the PSA. Post Government of Somaliland approval, SE(EA)L holds a 34% interest in the Odewayne Block, fully carried by Genel Energy Somaliland Limited ('Genel Energy') for its share of the costs of all exploration activities during the Third and Fourth Periods of the PSA.

In June 2017, the Somali Government (Ministry of Energy and Minerals) contracted BGP (Geophysical contractor) to undertake a 1,000km (full fold, 1,076km surface) 10km by 10km, 2D seismic campaign, to both satisfy and exceed the 500km minimum work program for the current Third Period. This acquisition program was undertaken over the basinal areas identified from the potential fields (gravity and magnetic) legacy data. The three month program was completed in late August 2017, safely and on time, with the second 500km recorded at an average of 14.5km per day.

Outlook

As of November 2017, Sterling undertook an integrated geological review of the basic post stack processed 2D dataset provided by the Operator Genel Energy. Following encouraging technical indications, the Company will undertake a highly focused and rigorous processing effort, independent of the Operator. The first phase deliverables will be a full pre stack time migrated dataset, consisting of 3 lines of ca. 235km. The primary technical objective will be improving the deeper subsurface image. Should this be successful, a second phase of processing will be undertaken on the remaining 765km (13 lines) of data. This workflow will allow for an informed technical and commercial perspective on the block by end Q2 2018.

MAURITANIA

The Group has had an economic interest (ca. 9.5% of cumulative production through the Funding Agreement and a 6% Royalty Agreement derived from Premier's WI) in the Chinguetti oil field through a Funding Agreement with Société Mauritanienne Des Hydrocarbures et de Patrimoine Minier ('SMHPM'), Mauritania's national oil company since 2004, and a Royalty Agreement with Premier Oil ('Premier') since 2006.

Since 2016, a persistent and ultimately successful Board mandate has focused on crystallising the Company's A&D liability exposure on Chinguetti.

Additionally, post extensive regional and prospect level evaluations it was decided to exit the C-10 block in November 2017.

For Sterling, these activities comprised the final elements of a strategic exit from Mauritania. In particular, the settlement of A&D costs for a fixed amount with no exposure to future operational risk and/or cost overruns allow for certainty for the business as it plans for 2018 and beyond.

Chinguetti

Overview

Gross production for the Chinguetti oil field during 2017 averaged 3,524 bopd (2016: 4,549 bopd). Average production net to the Group, from the Group's economic interests during 2017, was 199 bopd (2016: 279 bopd). Production was in steady decline throughout the year, reflecting the approaching 31 December 2017 CoP.

As of 26 January 2018, in light of the CoP from the Chinguetti oil field, the Company, the Government of Mauritania and SMHPM agreed to terminate the Funding Agreement ('Deed of Termination'). The Deed of Termination provides for a payment (made on 26 January 2018) by Sterling to the Government of Mauritania and SMHPM of a fixed sum of $32.6 million to settle any and all claims under the Funding Agreement, including Sterling's obligation to pay for its share of A&D costs and outstanding 2018 operational expenditures. As a result, Sterling has no residual exposure to the A&D costs. 

C-10 Exploration block (Relinquished November 2017)

Overview

Block C-10 covers an area of approximately 8,025km² and lies in water depths of 50 to 2,400m within the Nouakchott sub-basin, offshore Mauritania, and wholly surrounds the Chinguetti field. The C-10 production sharing contract ('PSC') is held by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary Sterling Energy Mauritania Limited ('SEML') (13.5% working interest), Tullow Oil (76.5% working interest and Operator) and SMHPM (10% working interest). SMHPM is carried by SEML and Tullow Oil, pro-rata to their working interests, during the exploration phases.

The Operator in 2017, on behalf of the JV, undertook lengthy and ultimately unsuccessful negotiations with the Government, to secure a one year extension through committing to a new inboard 3D seismic survey. Subsequent, SEML determined that whilst the block was deemed technically prospective, there was insufficient commercial justification to entering Phase 3 (3 year term), with a minimum work obligation of 2 wells. Accordingly, the PSC second phase exploration period, with a minimum work obligation of one exploration well expired on 30 November 2017.

Outlook

Given that the JV did not fulfill the minimum work obligations, the gross penalty payment owing to the Mauritanian government is $7.5 million ($1.1 million net to SEML) and was paid in March 2018.

Revenue and cost of sales

2017 Chinguetti production, net to the Group, averaged 199 bopd (including royalty barrels), a decrease of 29% from the 279 bopd averaged in 2016. The reduced volumes were a result of operational difficulties, relating to subsea valve integrity in late Q3 where production had reduced by 36% in comparison to Q2; notwithstanding the expected decline in production for the field, until its CoP on 31 December 2017.

Gross volumes lifted and sold during the year from the Chinguetti oil field were down by 36% to 1.4 million barrels over three cargo liftings (2016: 2.2 million barrels over four cargo liftings); whilst the reduction in gross volumes can be partly attributed to the extra lift in 2016, on average cargo volumes were down by 17% in 2017.

The achieved direct operating lifting cost per barrel increased in 2017 by $14.4 to $68.8 (2016: $54.4) due to reduced lifting volumes. Cost of sales for the Group in 2017 increased by $2.0 million (excluding the 2016 onerous contract provision) due largely to the reduction in inventory entitlement. Inventories at 31 December 2017 stood at 6k barrels (2016: 39k barrels).

During 2017, the Group fully impaired the C-10 block in Mauritania ($2.8 million).

Group cash general and administrative overhead decreased by 15% during the year to $3.9 million (2016: $4.6 million).

The continued reduction in the Group's administrative overhead is in keeping with the Board driven mandate for cash perseveration. In 2017 the Group's wages and salaries (excluding share-based payments) have reduced by 21%. Relocation to a smaller office in October 2017 will yield further savings going into 2018.

Net finance income (interest received less finance expenses) totalled $459k in the year (2016: $290k income).

Interest received increased by ca. 61% during the year to $1.1 million (2016: $683k) as a result of improving deposit rates and a proactive focus on treasury management.

Finance expenses include; a non-cash finance expense of $707k (2016: $149k) relating to the accelerated unwinding of the Chinguetti decommissioning provision, exchange gains of $98k (2016: $231k losses) on GBP cash deposits reported in US dollars and other finance expenses of $21k (2016: $14k).

No dividend is proposed to be paid for the year ended 31 December 2017 (2016: $nil).

Cash flow

Net Group cash outflow generated from operating activities was $4.2 million (2016: $9.9 million outflow), a full reconciliation of which is provided in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

Statement of financial position

At year end, cash and cash equivalents totalled $81.4 million (2016: $88.1 million).

At the end of 2017, net assets/total equity stood at $69.3 million (2016: $78.4 million), and non-current assets totalled $21.1 million (2016: $18.9 million). Net current assets reduced to $48.2 million (2016: $74.0 million) due in part to the movement in decommissioning provision from non-current to current liabilities.

At the end of 2017 the Group's exposure to abandonment and decommissioning costs relating to the Chinguetti oil field totalled $32.5 million, based on settlement discussions with SMHPM (see Note 6) being split between short-term provisions ($28.7 million) and trade payables ($3.8 million).

Cautionary statement

This financial report contains certain forward-looking statements that are subject to the usual risk factors and uncertainties associated with the oil and gas exploration and production business. Whilst the Directors believe the expectation reflected herein to be reasonable in light of the information available up to the time of their approval of this report, the actual outcome may be materially different owing to factors either beyond the Group's control or otherwise within the Group's control but, for example, owing to a change of plan or strategy. Accordingly, no reliance may be placed on the forward-looking statements.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.       General information      

The preliminary results announcement is for the year ended 31 December 2017.

The financial information set out above does not constitute the company's statutory accounts for the years ended 31 December 2017 or 2016, but is derived from those accounts. Statutory accounts for 2016 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies and those for 2017 will be delivered following the Company's Annual General Meeting. The auditors have reported on those accounts; their reports were unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and did not contain statements under s498(2) or (3) Companies Act 2006.

While the financial information included in this preliminary announcement has been prepared in accordance with the recognition and measurement criteria of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), this announcement does not itself contain sufficient information to comply with IFRSs.

The Annual Report and Accounts and the notice for the Company's Annual General meeting, which is to be held at 11.00 a.m. on 25 April 2018, will be posted to Shareholders on or about 30 March 2017.

 

2.       Going concern

The Group's business activities, together with the factors likely to affect its future development, performance and position are set out in the Operations Review. The financial position of the Group, its cash flows and liquidity position are described in the Financial Review.

The Group has sufficient cash resources for its working capital needs and its committed capital expenditure programme at least for the next 12 months. As a consequence, the Directors believe that the Group is well placed to manage its business risks successfully despite the current uncertain economic outlook.

The Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Thus they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the annual financial statements.

 

3.       Operating segments

Africa is the Groups sole operating segment. The UK corporate office is a technical and administrative cost centre. The operating results of each segment are regularly reviewed by the Board of Directors in order to make decisions about the allocation of resources and to assess their performance.

The following table's present revenue, profit and certain asset and liability information regarding the Group's operating segments for the year ended 31 December 2017 and for the year ended 31 December 2016.

At 31 December 2016 the Odewayne consideration provision was recognised due to the possibility of certain operational milestones being met in 2017. In April 2017, the Company agreed to revised farm-out terms, to reduce the staged contingent consideration payments due Petrosoma and reduce SE(EA)L interest in the Odewayne asset by 6%.

The farm-out agreement was amended such that the parties cancelled the $8.0 million contingent consideration in return for: (i) a payment by SE(EA)L to Petrosoma of $3.5 million; and (ii) a transfer from SE(EA)L to Petrosoma of a 6% interest in the PSA.

Mauritania - termination of the Chinguetti Funding Agreement.

On the 26 January 2018 it was announced that the Company, the Government of Mauritania and SMHPM agreed to terminate the Funding Agreement ('Deed of Termination').

The Deed of Termination provided for a payment (made on 26 January 2018) by Sterling to the Government of Mauritania and SMHPM of $32.6 million to settle any and all claims under the Funding Agreement, including Sterling's obligation to pay for its share of A&D costs and outstanding 2018 operational expenditures.

As at 31 December 2017 short-term provisions amounted to $28.7 million with trade payables of $3.8 million, being the amount due to SMHPM. The residual amount relating to operational expenditures will be expensed in 2018.
