BW Energy investor presentation
Please find attached the presentation material which will be used by BW Energy at the announced lunch presentation which the company will host on 3 June 2019 at 12:00 (CEST) at Hotel Continental in Oslo, Norway, as well as in upcoming investor meetings.
An E&P company that unlocks value that traditional oil & gas companies are not addressing
BW Energy's development of the Dussafu license offshore Gabon has moved the threshold for commercial development of discovered resources through innovative FPSO agreements and fast-track, properly scaled development concepts.
The attached presentation material provides additional information about BW Energy, its assets and business plan. These include the following key elements:
- A growth-focused E&P company unlocking value from proven discoveries
- Unique ability to trigger phased field developments by redeployment of existing FPSOs
- Business model proven by first oil from Dussafu field in Gabon 18 months after acquisition
- On track to triple Dussafu production to ~30,000 bopd by Q4 2021
- Completion of the Maromba acquisition in Brazil will more than double estimated net reserves and resources to 175 mmbbl (management estimate)
- Significant upside beyond current commercial reserves in Dussafu and Maromba
"We target robust business opportunities based on proven reserves with sequential growth potential, seeking to unlock significant value that traditional oil & gas companies are not addressing," said Carl K. Arnet, the CEO of BW Offshore. "We see great upside from our existing assets and several field investment opportunities which meet our selective criteria as larger oil companies continue to adjust their portfolios of offshore assets."
"We will invite external investors to add to BW Energy's project execution capacity and growth potential and look forward to presenting our unique business model over coming days and weeks," Carl K. Arnet added.
BW Energy will have a diversified portfolio of production and development assets, positioned for growth based on its unique low-risk development strategy supported by BWO's FPSO track-record and experience. BW Energy was established as a joint-venture company with BW Group in late 2016 and has since together with BWO developed a portfolio of attractive upstream oil and gas assets in West Africa and Brazil. BW Energy targets a listing on Oslo Stock Exchange by mid H2 2019.
