Jersey Oil and Gas PLC Snapshot



Jersey Oil and Gas ("JOG") is an independent oil and gas company operated from Jersey, Channel Islands

JOG has a highly experienced E&P team with a multinational track record of operating assets and leading upstream-focused oil and gas companies

The Team is actively pursuing a North Sea production-focused strategy, aiming to deliver strong shareholder returns through:

  • Exposure to any oil price recovery - acquire production at current low oil prices
  • Lower cost base - benefit from falling operating costs, low overheads and management costs
  • Improving Tax Environment - UK Budget 2016 reduced headline tax from 50% to 40% and PRT was abolished
  • Low Financing Costs - Attractive bank funding costs can deliver attractive leveraged yields

Our business

Our objective is to build a diversified production focused North Sea asset portfolio, through the acquisition of non-operated working interests in multiple fields.

Target Asset Profile

  • Mature production assets with long profiles and upside potential
  • Oil and/or Gas
  • Sub-sea tie-back, satellite fields
  • production-based tariff agreements
  • limited exposure to host platform costs
  • Low capex and opex costs
  • Manageable decommissioning liabilities
  • Non-operated interests           

Production Target

  • Working Interests in 6-10 Producing Fields
  • 10,000bopd net production
  • Reserves target of 15-20MMbbls

Any acquisitions that are taken forward, will be financed from one or more of the company's balance sheet, the proceeds from strategic sales of selected parts of the combined group's asset portfolio and further equity and debt capital raises
