The group has raised its interest in the well to 18.5% from 16.5%.

Stanley-2 is the next well to be drilled as part of a strategic alliance with Baja Oil & Gas and is the second recent well to be drilled at the Livingston Oilfield Polk County. The first well to be drilled was the nearby Stanley-1, which started in July.

Mosman said Stanley-2 is supported by information from Stanley-1 and Baja's interpretation of 3D seismic data.

Chairman John W Barr said: "Given the significant results of Stanley-1, Mosman is very pleased that Stanley-2 is now ready to get underway.

"The clear intention is to increase production and thus cashflows as quickly as possible whilst taking into account operational and legislative requirements."

The primary target of drilling is the Yegua Sands at about 3,800 feet. Several secondary targets will be tested, similar to those that were tested in the Stanley-1 well.

 The drilling programme at Stanley-2 is expected to cost US$400,000. A further US$150,000 will be required for completion if the well is commercially successful.

Mosman will use existing cash resources to fund the well.

The junior oil company, in a stock market statement, said its contracted rig is ‘in the area’, and, that the drilling will start for Stanley-2 once present operations are complete for another operator’s project.

"The Stanley-2 well is the next step in the accelerated development of the multiple pay zone Stanley field,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

“Stanley-1 continues to produce and generate revenue."

Earlier this month, Mosman revealed that recently performed tests on the producing Stanley-1 well shows potential for higher flow rates once current gas constraints are removed.

The test, carried out by the operator, Nadsoilco LLC, and independent third parties, was limited due to the size of the test separator and was not an absolute open hole test.

The company said over several hours the well was flowed through increasingly larger choke sizes and the flow rate was allowed to stabilise at each stage.

The group pointed out that the final stable flow was 1,271,000 cfd and 50 bbls per day of liquid hydrocarbons, which is equivalent to 274 boepd. By way of comparison, it added, recent flow rates with the existing infrastructure were averaging 450,000 cfd and 10 bbls per day of liquid hydrocarbons, equivalent to 90 boepd.

Mosman holds a 16.5% working interest in the project.

In recent months, this has seen success with the Stanley well in Texas, and, alongside its partner Baja, the company now envisages a programme of additional new wells slated.

The Stanley well successfully completed production testing, flowing at a rate of 274 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

“The outlook for junior oil and gas companies is still very challenging, especially in the light of recent oil price movements; but Mosman looks forward to 2019 and 2020 with greater optimism now that a firm production base has been established and plans for increasing production are in place,” Mosman said in its results statement.

“The potential of projects within the Baja Strategic Alliance are significant and immediate focus will be on those assets.”

Mosman reported US$234,430 of gross profit for the year.

The overall loss for the year amounted to US$4.1mln, including the expensing of US$2.75mln of previously capitalised costs. The company spent US$607,794 on acquiring assets in the year and a further US$545,013 developing them.

Production during the year totalled 25,923 barrels of oil and the company generated some US$740,000 of revenue.

Mosman ended the year with US$1.32mln of cash and equivalents.

The firm said the operator has advised that planning and negotiating with relevant parties to eliminate pipeline limitations and increase gas processing contract volumes is underway.

It added that the timing of increased production depends on reaching agreement with third parties and completing site work, and an update will be provided in due course.

Stanley-2 drilling in November

The Stanley-2 well drill is scheduled to commence drilling in November with results due in early December, with the well expected to be an oil producer with minor amounts of associated gas that can be handled by existing infrastructure.

It said additional development wells will then be drilled to develop the multiple oil zones identified in Stanley-1.

John W Barr, Mosman’s chairman, said:  "This Stanley-1 test shows the ability of the well to produce at much higher rates once the gas infrastructure limitations are resolved.

“We are also pleased to move rapidly to drill Stanley-2 and potentially get it on production, to be followed by additional wells.”

He added: “Stanley-1 continues to generate revenue from gas and oil sales, and the test clearly shows the potential for higher rates once the current gas constraints are removed."

In mid-morning trading, Mosman shares were 7.4% higher at 0.29p.

Following on from the successful Stanley-1 well, it is now planned that three additional wells will be drilled at the Stanley project, meanwhile, one well will each be drilled at the Champion and Challenger projects.

The company noted that the Stanley-2 well is already funded, as are the other Stanley wells.

READ: Mosman's Texas operations flowing again after heavy rain abates

They will be drilled under lease with each single well drilling operation committed to and completed one at a time, with each well likely every two months. The programme will be carried out alongside strategic partner Baja Oil and Gas LLC.

Mosman is at the same time raising around £500,000 of new capital with new shares being sold to investors through a placing. Some 141.81mln shares are being sold to investors, at 0.275p each, to raise £390,000 and another £110,000 will be raised as two company directors also subscribe for shares.

Further funding will be required for the Champion and Challenger and options are being considered.

"The way forward is clearly to build production,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

More drilling at Stanley project

“Mosman has determined the next step is further drilling at Stanley where Stanley-1 is already a producer.

“If the additional proposed development  drilling is commercially successful this will increase production to further enhance the growth potential of the company.”

Barr added: "The selection of the proposed wells is designed to maximize the potential of Mosman and also deliver the best possible economic outcome.

"Mosman remains fully supportive of its other projects in the portfolio, however, the low cost and strong economics of investing in these wells was a significant factor in deciding the next step for the company."

Mosman, also, updated on the Welch project where a feasibility study indicated the well would be economic, but, now, the company noted that cost estimates have increased to US$2mln per horizontal well.

The company said it intends to seek farm-in funding and preliminary talks are presently underway.

Meanwhile, in Australia, the company’s partner intends to drill the ‘key’ Dukas well in the first quarter of 2019.

Several wells had to be temporarily shut-in, and, certain regular repair works were delayed as a result of the weather. At the same time, due to impassable roads, some crude collections were delayed.

However, on Monday Mosman said the rain had abated and that it had recently sold four tankers of oil from the Welch Project and two from the Strawn project. It added that further sales were expected before the end of the month.

A number of the wells that were shut in are now producing again, Mosman said, adding that some wells still require minor repairs that will be remedied over the coming weeks.

"As stated, the effect will be a slightly lower average production rate,” said Mosman chairman John W Barr.

“There remain a small number of repairs to be completed at Welch, however the board maintains its belief in a focus on building production,” he added.

Shares in Mosman were 3.5% up at 0.44p in early afternoon trade.

The AIM-quoted junior oiler, which owns 7.6mln shares in GEM, said in a statement on Friday that GEM was “well advanced in finalising a letter of intent with a unrelated third party” that, if completed, would see GEM shares re-listed.

READ: Mosman eyes Stanley well optimisation for oil, Texas operations suffer heavy weather

“In the event that GEM is re-listed, that may allow market visibility on the value of Mosman's investment in GEM. Until then, it is not possible to quantify the current value of the shares ore recoverability of the US$100,000 loan due from GEM,” Mosman said in a statement.

In February 2018, Mosman's Chairman, John Barr, and two other parties were appointed as directors of GEM. As such, Mosman said that John Barr's time on GEM business had been billed to GEM and had also resulted in a reduction in time charges to Mosman.

Mosman added that GEM had held a shareholders meeting to consider a number of matters that are expected to lay the foundation to be able relaunch GEM as a revitalised company.

“The GEM board has recently reviewed in some detail several potential transactions in order that the revitalisation may proceed and thus a final decision be made on determining the appropriate business plan for GEM,” Mosman added.

Mosman said it was unable to estimate the likelihood of success at present as there remain several key conditions that require to be satisfied.

“Mosman's objective remains to recover its investment and loan,” Mosman added.

The AIM-quoted oiler, in one of two stock market updates issued this morning, said that Stanley-1 is believed to be depleting its “small gas cap” and, once the well’s gas flow no longer needs to be restricted, it will be opened up further.

READ: Mosman Oil and Gas “extremely pleased” as Stanley sales start

Accordingly, the company also noted that a decision to potentially develop gas infrastructure has now been dropped.

"Stanley-1 continues to generate revenue from gas and oil sales, however, the hope is that the oil will become the dominant revenue stream shortly,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

“The board is keen to move forward to Stanley-2 well being drilled soon."

Texas wells hit by heavy weather

Mosman, separately, reported that operations at the Welch Permian Basin project and the Strawn project have been impacted by recent significant rainfall.

Several wells had to be temporarily shut-in, and, certain regular repair works have been delayed as a result of the weather. At the same time, due to impassable roads, some crude collections have been delayed.

It noted that these factors will result in a slightly lower average production rate, though it said the costs attached to shut-in wells are minimal.

Barr added: “The rainfall has caused some disruption, but we are not aware of any damage to production facilities, and therefore once the rain abates normal production should be quickly restored."

By early afternoon deals, Mosman shares were down 2.52% at 0.49p.

The company told investors that the first tanker load amounted to 190 barrels and some 7mln cubic feet of gas was also sold.

It noted that the tanker shipment doesn’t represent all production volumes, and, that inventory is now kept in storage tanks.

"It is extremely pleasing that Stanley-1 has moved to a revenue-generating project in a short period of time since the original investment decision,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

“Following on from this, the Board is keen to move forward with the drilling of the Stanley-2 Well as quickly as possible.”

Additionally, it noted that output from Stanley-1 continues to be constrained - by the limitations of surface equipment - and, as the ratio of liquid hydrocarbons to gas has varied, the company said that a steady state has not been reached yet.

Mosman is now working towards the next well, Stanley-2, alongside partner Baja Oil & Gas.

Baja has completed the planning for Stanley-2, and, the company expects to receive a formal proposal for the well and will then have 15 days to decide whether or not it will participate in the well.

It is expected that drilling will start in November.

Separately, the company said it has now paid Baja the required funds for the acquisition of stakes in the Champion and Challenger projects, 60% and 16% respectively.

It builds on the existing relationship between Mosman and Baja, the operator of the successful Stanley-1 well.

Mosman is now taking a 60% interest in the Champion project and a 16% stake in the Challenger project, paying US$108,000 and US$43,500 respectively.

READ: Mosman Oil and Gas “extremely pleased’ as Stanley starts producing

At Champion, the idea is to follow the same 3D seismic techniques as used to target Stanley-1. The project spans 240 across and is seen to have several drilling locations.

Challenger hosts two production wells, albeit with nominal periodic production. Here, the plan will be to use 3D seismic to identify locations for new development wells – Challenger presently has an estimated 0.84mln barrels of proved and probable reserves.

The acquisitions are being funded from existing cash resources.

"Given the significant results at Stanley-1, we have determined to prioritise existing resources towards the projects that hold the most chance of further increasing production and cash flows, which includes the potential Stanley-2 well, and the Champion and Challenger projects,” said chief executive John Barr.

Next steps for Stanley

Mosman, at the same time, highlighted that it is presently working with Baja to optimise the development of the oil zone in Stanley-1, and it is now at the planning stage for the follow-up at the Stanley-2 well.

The second Stanley well could be drilled in the next few months and other wells may potentially follow that programme in the future.

Under the new strategic alliance deal with Baja, Mosman will effectively have a 50% interest in all its partner’s existing and new projects.

The AIM-quoted company noted it can source new projects and develop existing projects with a very strong local business development and a technical team without establishing its own team and the associated infrastructure.

The AIM-quoted company said it agreed that production has not yet been optimized at the project.

"We remain cautiously upbeat about Arkoma, but as a board we are disappointed that the wells are not yet optimized,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

“We continue to monitor each individual project and make decisions based on the best and most complete information available.

“We are in discussions with Inland and Blackstone about the way forward in particular given the approaching option expiry date of 30 September 2018."

Latest production reports from Arkoma reveal that, for the 75 days between July and September 13, averaged a rate of 87 barrels per day in aggregate while wells were on production.

Baja Oil and Gas LLC, Mosman’s partner, advised that the well’s production rate is temporarily constrained by existing surface equipment limitations.

It is presently flowing at a rate of 67 barrels of oil equivalent per day, and, following infrastructure upgrades, it is expected to rise to around 230 boepd.

WATCH: Mosman Oil & Gas Limited @ Oil Capital Conference

The company anticipates that the equipment upgrades will take place over the next several weeks.

Mosman noted that the initial production is high yield natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons, and, Baja expects that the product mix will change from natural gas with substantial liquid hydrocarbons to oil with substantial associated natural gas.

John Barr, Mosman chairman, said: “Mosman is extremely pleased with the short time it has taken from spudding the well to sales. We anticipate that surface equipment upgrades will increase production.

“Planning has now commenced for a follow up well, Stanley-2."

‘Significant positive’

“Today’s news that the company’s Stanley-1 well has started to flow is a significant positive and, given the revised composition, once the testing programme is complete, boundary conditions understood, we will know to what extent to which the indicated 230boepd can be delivered and for how long,” said City broker SP Angel.

“We believe that these results continue to underline the Company’s efforts to focus on cash-generating projects.”

Shares dipped 3.3% to 0.56p on Monday afternoon.

Production rates at the Welch project, in the Permian Basin in Texas, continue to increase.

Watch: Production at Mosman Oil & Gas's Welch project continues to increase

Well workovers in June boosted average gross production before royalties to around 44 barrels of oil per day, the company reported in September.

Moreover, the restart of the Drennan-8 well in early August saw production average 50 bopd.

Elsewhere, the Stanley-1 well, also in Texas, has been completed and is currently flowing oil into tanks – Mosman said the well is expected produce 150 bopd gross, which would give the company 25 bopd for its 16.5% stake.

Analysis of well data has indicated multiple zones that may also warrant additional production wells.

Talks with partners are scheduled in Texas next week.

Mosman has a strategic alliance with Baja Oil & Gas, a privately-owned company, which has a substantial existing inventory of projects.

This will see Mosman participate in the evaluation of future projects, starting with Stanley.

Output numbers should continue to rise with the increased production identified at Welch, the recent successful drilling at Stanley-1, a likely follow-up at Stanley; and the potential for horizontal well/s at Welch.

Cash was A$1.3mln of cash at 30 June.

Australia exploration

In Australia, meanwhile, Mosman also noted that Synterra Technologies had provided initial results from stage two seismic reprocessing and interpretation.

The salt tectonic structuring seen in EP 145, is also present in the area where Australian oil firm Santos has announced it intends to drill the large Dukas prospect in the next six months.

Mosman is working with Synterra to determine the future work program at EP 145, which may include additional seismic to fill in the data gaps.

The idea eventually is to find a farm-in partner.

John Barr, Mosman chairman, said: "The company's strategic objective has been clearly identified and the board will continue to pursue that objective and implement its business plan.”

Stable cash generation the focus 

SP Angel says the September update highlighted the increased focus on the development of a stable cash generative base from which to grow.

“The next key observation point will be the Stanley (Livingston Oilfield, Polk County, Texas) which could produce up to 150bpd.”

“The follow-up testing an interpretation will elucidate how much of the 150bpd can be achieved, and for how long.”

SP Angel’s target price is 1.63p, compared to a market price of 0.6p that values Mosman at £2.7mln.

John Barr, Mosman chairman, said: "The company's strategic objective has been clearly identified and The Board will continue to pursue that objective and implement its business plan.

“Mosman has acquired projects with production, revenue, and excellent development potential.

“We will be making important capital allocation decisions in the next few weeks as some projects are accelerated, and others deferred.”

“Next week, two Mosman executive directors have a series of meetings in Texas with participants in the company's production assets."

Stanley-1’s primary reservoir was host to gross pay (an oil-bearing section) 19 metres thick with a porosity of around 18%. Porosity defines the capacity of the reservoir rock to hold oil.

Mosman said drill log data was better than expected and sees no reason to change pre-drill forecast for an initial flow rate of around 150 barrels a day.

WATCH: Mosman Oil & Gas hits multiple pay zones at Stanley Development well

The next step is to install production facilities, which should take one to two months before the well is completed as a producer.

The AIM-listed exploration group said the well completion secured its 16.5% interest in the Livingston Oil Field and added that further development drilling would be considered in “due course”.

Stanley-1 was the first well drilled as part of its strategic alliance with Texas-based Baja Oil & Gas.

Partner owns substantial inventory

Mosman said the US group owns “a substantial existing inventory” of oil and gas development projects and is continuing to add projects to the inventory.

Under the terms of the deal, the UK oiler has the option to invest in future projects.

On Monday, Mosman said that a workover programme significantly boosted output from the Welch project, also in Texas.

Looking for new opportunities 

"Mosman continues to pursue its strategic objective to identify opportunities which will provide operating cash flow and have development upside, in conjunction with exploration of existing exploration permits,” said chairman John Barr.

"The success at Stanley and the recent production increases at Welch reinforce this policy.

"We are pleased Stanley will be completed and add to Mosman's existing production.

“We are also encouraged with this successful validation of the investment decision and the strategic alliance with Baja."

In late afternoon trading. Mosman shares were 3.7% higher at 0.7p, easing back from an intraday peak of 0.88p.

In the first 27 days of July production at Welch was 1,180 barrels, of which 896 barrels was attributable to Mosman. This represents an average aggregate production (before royalties) of around 44 barrels per day. The previous six month average of circa 24 barrels per day had been below well capacity as water injection pump repairs had limited well production.

Mosman said the increase in production at the Welch Permian basin project in Texas, is directly attributable to the recent work-overs and repairs completed in early July. Mosman has now asked its consultants to consider any further wells that can be repaired in the near-term.

“We proceeded with the repairs as a result of obtaining funding from the recent placement and the repairs have resulted in an immediate effect on production. This is an encouraging evidence that Mosman continues to achieve its strategic objectives to build a strong production base," said John Barr, Mosman’s chairman.

Following further upgrade work, the wells are gradually being brought into production but Mosman expects it may take some time to establish steady flow rates.

As steady rates have yet to be seen the company agreed with its partner that the exercise date for its second option, to increase Mosman’s stake to 33% from 27%, is extended out to the end of September.

This will allow time for at least 30 days of steady production, Mosman said.

It means the partners can also meet to discuss a number of other matters including field performance, optimization, operatorship, field development planning and budgets.

"We remain upbeat about Arkoma, but as a board we must monitor each project and make decisions based on the best and most complete information available, and we look forward to getting the data we need to make that decision as part of future plans for the Arkoma field," said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

The company has agreed a new strategic alliance with Baja Oil & Gas, a privately-owned company, which has a substantial existing inventory of projects.

It will see Mosman participate in the evaluation of future projects, starting with Stanley.

WATCH: Mosman Oil & Gas announces strategic alliance

The Stanley well will be located in the Livingston Oilfield, Polk County, Texas. Drilling is set to start during July and August. Stanley’s primary objective is to produce oil from the Eocene aged Wilcox sands found productive in the area.

Mosman has acquired a 16.5% working interest in the Stanley project, by agreeing to pay 22% of the well’s costs - which, based on a fixed cost drill contract, are estimated at US$95,000, plus a further US$40,000 to complete and install production facilities.

If the well is successful, it is expected to yield 150 barrels of oil per day gross.

"While the near term focus for Mosman remains its existing US production projects and Australian exploration portfolio, the opportunity with Baja could not be ignored given the low entry cost and potential production numbers,” said John Barr, Mosman chairman.

“Baja management are a very experienced team, including time at BHP Petroleum when Mosman's US based operations manager Mr.Howard Mclaughlin was Head of Global Exploration."

In a production update for the period, the AIM-listed oiler reported sales revenue of US$534,000, a 191% increase on the previous six month period, while net production attributable to the company increased 35% to 4,417 barrel of oil equivalent (boe).

WATCH: Welch proving to be a 'star performer' as Mosman Oil And Gas increases production

The company added that total gross production across all of its underlying acreage on a total project basis was 12,260 boe over the period, a 28% increase on the prior period.

Mosman also said it expected production and sales numbers to continue to grow strongly due to rod replacements and potential horizontal wells at its Welch Permian Basin project in Texas as well as new electric submersible pumps (ESPs) at the Arkoma Stacked Pay project in Oklahoma.

Regarding the Welch wells, the firm said a final decision was subject to completion of its economic evaluation, a development plan, permitting, prevailing economic conditions and funding alternatives, adding that it was also in discussions with the Texas Rail Road Commission to secure well approvals with an investment decision due later this year.

At Arkoma, in which it holds a 27% stake, Mosman said the recently installed ESPs at two wells at the site had been disrupted by weather events and water injection issues. Following the upgrade work to the water injection facilities, the wells would be brought on production but it would take time to establish steady flow rates.

The only decline in production was at the company’s Strawn project in Texas, in which it holds a 50% stake, where production for the six months declined 11.5% to 608 barrels.

John W Barr, chairman of Mosman, said: "If production at existing projects is maintained, and we achieve the planned success at Welch and Arkoma, production from could see a further significant increase over current levels. The task now is to continue to develop Mosman to achieve that success."

Mosman shares were up 42.1% at 0.6p.
