Business Wire: Deep Well’s Valuation is Set in the Oil Sands Game after Shell’s/BlackRock Takeover Bid; Deep Well’s Reserves Value is Estimated, in Comparison at $16.60 Per Share, Says Investrend Affiliate SISM Research Analyst Ernest C. Schlotter

May 30, 2006
(Investrend Research Syndicate) Ernest C. Schlotter, a senior analyst with Investrend affiliate SISM Research and a Starmine four star analyst, has placed an estimated reserve value of $13.20 to $16.60 per share on Deep Well Oil & Gas (OTC: DWOG) reserves.

According to SISM’s Research Note at

Alberta oil sands are heating up with a focus on the Peace River Oil Sands, the least commercially developed of Alberta’s oil sands areas. BlackRock’s friendly takeover by Shell is the newest push of the supermajors into Canada’s booming oil sands and unconventional oil production. A new valuation is set in the oil sands game, as Shell will pay US$15.50/barrel for BlackRock’s proved reserves and US$2.20/barrel for estimated reserves.

“Compared to Shell’s BlackRock takeover bid of $2.20/barrel for estimated reserves, Deep Well is massively undervalued as the company currently trades at only $0.21/barrel for estimated reserves. Deep Well’s reserves today could be valued at US$1.75 per barrel, which would be $13.20 per share, as its project is less developed than BlackRock’s,” said Schlotter. “In addition, it is expected that the SEC will soon rule whether Alberta’s oil sands can be included in company reserves for reporting purposes. A positive ruling, which is expected, will open the door to one of the largest-scale competitions for energy resources ever seen as big oil companies rush to enter the oil sands business. Both of the above factors make DWOG a prime acquisition target, sometime that would be very lucrative for shareholders.”
