CORPORATE STRUCTURE

Red Emperor Resources NL is a company limited by shares, which is incorporated and domiciled in Australia. 

NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES

The principal activity of the Company during the financial year was oil and gas exploration.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

Philippines (SC 55)

Red Emperor announced in August 2015 that the Hawkeye-1 exploration well was drilled to the planned total depth of 2,920m with the top reservoir intersected at 2,710m. The well proved the existence of hydrocarbons in SC55, however the hydrocarbon size discovered was at the low end of expectations and not likely to be economic to develop. Hawkeye-1 was plugged and abandoned. The drilling program was executed smoothly, ahead of schedule and significantly under budget with Red Emperor having paid a total of approximately AU$4.8m for its 15% equity proportion.

The Company announced during the year that the Joint Venture (JV) had formally received approval from the Philippines Department of Energy for a two-year moratorium, until 23 December 2017, on required work activity under Service Contract 55. During the moratorium period, the consortium will conduct specialised geophysical studies in the area surrounding the Hawkeye Prospect, which encountered gas shows when it was drilled last year. Although the Hawkeye well did not encounter gas in commercial quantities, it proved the presence of an active petroleum system in the contract area that hosts the "Cinco Prospect" as well as several other leads.

As announced previously, Otto Energy Limited (ASX: OEL) has advised the JV of its intention to exit the Block SC 55 as part of its strategy to focus on its North American assets. Red Emperor intends to have its full, proportionate interest be assigned and as a result its working interest will increase from 15% to 37.5%.

Georgia

Red Emperor, a 20% shareholder of Strait Oil and Gas Limited (Strait), was advised that the Georgian Government had confirmed the validity of the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) across Block VIa and the ability for Strait to access existing gas pipeline infrastructure, free of taxes. This important confirmation paves the way for ongoing sales negotiations with a potential purchaser of the PSC to continue. Red Emperor is not involved in these negotiations and can provide no certainty as to the likelihood of a successful outcome. Due diligence by both parties remains ongoing.

Corporate

In July 2015, the Company, through its London broker, Brandon Hill Capital, and its Australian broker, 708 Capital, placed 65,750,000 new ordinary shares at 4 pence (A$0.08) per share to raise £2.63 million (A$5.26 million) before expenses. Proceeds from the capital raising and existing cash resources were used to fund the drilling activities in the Philippines.

The Company also issued 4,320,000 unlisted options, exercisable at $0.08 each on or before 2 July 2018 as part consideration to advisors of the Company for capital raising fees associated with the July 2015 Share Placement.

Red Emperor reviewed a number of new opportunities with both its Australian and UK advisers respectively during the year. Whilst none of the projects reviewed resulted in a transaction, the Board remains committed to finding suitable new asset(s) to compliment the Company's current portfolio while oil & gas prices remain subdued.

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

There have been no significant changes in the state of affairs of the Group during the financial year, other than as set out in the annual report.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING DATE

There have been no other significant events subsequent to the end of the financial year to the date of the annual report.

LIKELY DEVELOPMENTS AND EXPECTED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The Group will continue its investment in resource projects with the object of identifying commercial resources. The Company intends to pursue acquisition and investment opportunities to secure new projects in the natural resources sector.
