SUMMARY

TransGlobe has been in the international oil and gas industry for over 20 years and has drilled more than 400 gross wells in varying geological formations, political climates and economic environments. Through the execution of a disciplined business plan involving cost-cutting measures, a strategic acquisition, and key contracts with the Egyptian government and third-party marketers, TGA’s management has steered the Company through a difficult period involving low oil prices and political turmoil, and, as a result, TransGlobe has recently returned to profitability.

  • TransGlobe had an average production base of roughly 14,439 Boepd in 2018 and recently reported ~15.9 MBoepd for Q119 and ~17.0 MBoepd during the month of May. TGA has a number of development projects in Canada and Egypt, along with some potentially high-impact exploration opportunities in Egypt. The most recent 2019 capital budget includes a total of ~$34.1M, with ~$24.1M allocated to Egypt and ~$10.0M to Canada.
  • As Egypt has regained political and economic stability in recent years, TransGlobe’s original 2019 budget plans included completion of 4 development wells in the Eastern Desert, in addition to multiple recompletions and well optimizations, as well as 2 exploration wells (but TGA disclosed 2 wells bumped up to 2018). In the Western Desert, the focus is on appraisal and development of the SG 6X light oil discovery in South Ghazalat.
  • At year-end 2016, the Company acquired some producing high-quality light oil and liquids-rich gas plays in west central Alberta, Canada. The acquisition was designed to diversify TGA geographically as well as expand operations outside areas with geopolitical risk, and it came with 149 potential drilling opportunities. The operating cost structure and favorable royalty and tax structure of the area support growth at current oil prices and provide opportunities to increase reserves and production in proven plays using advanced horizontal drilling and multi-stage frac technology. In 2019, TransGlobe plans to drill 4 horizontal Cardium wells (3 development and 1 outpost) to maintain and grow Canadian light oil production.
  • Based on a January 2019 GLJ Petroleum Consultants evaluation, the Company reported 26.9 MMboe total proved (1P reserves) as well as 44.1 MMboe total proved + probable (2P reserves), ~2% and 4% decreases, respectively, from 2017 year-end.
  • TGA had inventoried entitlement crude oil in Egypt of 647.0 Mbbls as of 3/31/19 valued at $16.56/barrel on its balance sheet, which is slightly up from levels reported as of 12/31/18 of 568.1 Mbbls.
  • For 2019, corporate production is expected to range between 14,000 and 15,000 Boepd (midpoint 14,500) with a 94% weighting to oils and liquids; this includes 11,600 to 12,400 Bopd for Egypt, and 2,400 to 2,600 Boepd for Canada. On a comparable company basis for FY19 estimates, TGA currently trades at an EV/S multiple of 0.9x while its peers trade at an average multiple of 2.1x, and at an EV/EBITDA of 1.7x vs. the average of its peers at 3.9x.
