Senex Energy Up on Production and Revenue Increases

Senex attributes the positive momentum to several major milestones it achieved across the Surat and Cooper basins.

Australian energy producer Senex (ASX:SXY,OTC Pink:VPTOF) released its 2019 half-year results today. Highlights of the company overview include increased production as well as cash flow and earnings growth.

Shares of Senex were up as much as 8.96 percent on Tuesday (February 19), following the announcement.

The company attributes the positive momentum to several major milestones it achieved across the Surat and Cooper basins.

Production increased by 49 percent during the period, climbing from 374 kilobarrel of oil equivalent (kboe) in the first half of 2019, to 557 kboe in the second half.

Part of the production increase came as a result of a Q2 ramp-up at the company’s Roma North gas production site, which grew to 134 kboe from 18 kboe.

“Senex achieved continuing growth in production, earnings and cash flow in the first half of this financial year,” Ian Davies, CEO and managing director of Senex, said in the announcement.

“This is highlighted by a 74-percent increase in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation (or depletion), amortization and exploration expense (EBITDAX) and an AU$20 million turnaround in operational cash flow as gas production ramps up ahead of expectations.”

In addition to output growth, the Australian energy producer increased sales in the first half of 2019 by 44 percent, to AU$43 million.

Senex, which has been in operation for 30 years, operates two of the country’s largest onshore energy resources, the Surat Basin in Queensland and Cooper Basin located in southern Australia.

The company is also steadily working to advance its resource plays and deliver energy security to the east coast of Australia through its Western Surat gas project located north of Roma and Project Atlas, near Wandoan and Miles.

“We’ve continued to reach milestones that keep us on schedule for first gas from our Surat Basin growth developments. Successful execution of Roma North and Project Atlas will boost annual gas production to 3 mmboe [million barrels of oil equivalent] (48 TJ/day) by the end of the 2021 financial year,” explained Davies.

Drilling in the Cooper Basin during the first half of 2019 also proved successful for the energy company.

“As we execute our strategy right across the business, 2019 will prove to be a game-changer for Senex.”

Shares of Senex were up 4.48 percent at the end of day Tuesday to AU$0.35.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update


  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.
