Hi Ed.

I'm new to this thread.......and I appreciate your article on LNG. The reason why I'm here is several months ago I learned of a possible Natural Gas shortage this winter.

For disclosure purposes, I own PVX

Thanks,

David

Powermax Energy Inc. (PWR:TSX-V)

QUICK FACTS SHEET

HIGHLIGHTS:

* recent drilling success has led to a 40% increase in production to 350 boepd
* 2003 first quarter cash flow of $632,556 or $0.075 per share ($0.30 annualized)
* expected 2003 cash flow of $2.0 to $2.5 million or $0.25 to $0.30 per share (trading at only 2.0 to 2.5 times)
* estimated net asset value of $1.10 to $1.30 per share (trading at 0.48 to 0.68 times)
* debt free (debt net of working capital position as at March 31, 2003)

Powermax is an emerging company engaged in the exploration, development, and production of petroleum and natural gas in western Canada. The Company has demonstrated tremendous growth in the past 6 months, going from a corporation burdened with debt and generating negative cash flow and earnings, to a company with no debt, significant financial growth, and numerous projects.

Powermax has recently tied-in a number of new wells raising net production to about 350 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Approximately 70% of current production is comprised of natural gas. The Company plans to drill up to 6 wells over the balance of 2003, and to exit this year with production of over 500 boepd.

At its core area of Galahad, Powermax has identified 3 to 6 multi-zone development drilling locations. Another 3 wells in the area are categorized as ideal recompletion candidates, which provide the potential for incremental production.

The Company’s newly acquired Peace River Arch property has the potential for significant oil and natural gas additions and has the added benefit of accessibility to infrastructure. The area offers numerous shallow drilling opportunities. In particular, a 50% interest well is expected to be drilled in 2003, targeting a zone that blew out in the early 1900’s at rates approaching 10 mmcf/d of natural gas.

Powermax has entered into an agreement with Western Petrochemicals Corp. to explore and develop a shale bed methane gas play in the Pasquia Hills region of eastern Saskatchewan. Powermax can earn a 100% working interest in 188,000 acres in exchange for completing a $625,000 work program over a period of 30 months. In addition to completing the work obligations, the corporation made an initial payment of $50,000, and will issue 50,000 common shares. Powermax also recently acquired exploration permits covering a contiguous 106,000 acre parcel of land in the Moose Jaw region of Saskatchewan which is prospective for natural gas.

QIS CAPITAL COMMENTS:
Powermax Energy has come a long way in the past 12 months and now appears poised to show considerable growth and gain increased attention from the investment community. While the Company underwent some restructuring to reduce debt and streamline costs during the first half of 2002, new banking arrangements and the appointment of a professional staff have now positioned Powermax to exploit its vast potential. It should also be noted that the Company has an untapped $2.1 million line of credit as well as a $1 million acquisition line of credit.

The first quarter of 2003 is the first real indication of the positive financial outlook for Powermax. Annualized first quarter cash flow is approximately $0.30 per share based on a production base of about 330 boepd. The Company anticipates this production to continue to increase with a year-end target rate of 500 boepd. Ignoring this potential production increase, Powermax’s shares are trading at just over 2 times annualized cash flow, at a significant discount to net asset value, and the Company is debt free. This enviable financial position should enable Powermax to capitalize on its aggressive growth plans.

Ed, is there an index, other than yours, for E&P companies that are not of the behemoth rank? I'm looking for a proxy for a company like APC.
Thanks

Tom

EDIT. I guess that was a pretty dumb question. If there was such an index, you wouldn't have started this thread!

Tom, Actually there is an S&P index that appears to be what you're looking for, see its components listed at finance.yahoo.com^GSPOILP

As you can see it includes APC.

My portfolio on this thread needs to be adjusted for some stock splits, etc., but I have not had the time or inclination to deal with it. I oughtta try to do this by year-end just to see how the year really went.

I've been searching the Canadian sheets lately, Ed, and entered True Energy today (TUI.TO and TUENF:OTCBB). They gave an interesting presentation at the Peters Conference Sept. 16 and reported Q3 yesterday at an exit rate of 3,600 boed. They gave a target of 5,000 boed in 2004 at Peters. They have a nice land position, including an oil and gas target within Nexen's CBM play in Alberta.

Delt, Thanks, will try to look at that one. I've been considering looking at Canadian companies also but have not looked at many yet (other than ones that are operating in areas I'm otherwise familiar with).

I notice that many Canadian E&P companies trade at very low multiples of cash flow and EV/EBITDA. Not sure what would be a valid catalyst to get a higher stock price in Canada, although even at a low mulitiple I suppose if you are increasing your production as much as someone like True Energy believes they can, then your stock should go up.

Paul, I've slowly built up a pretty healthy position in FX Energy, see my latest tout on it at Message 19371527

Are you still holding? Should be interesting to see how high it goes before drilling results are out. The last financing included some warrants @ $3.60, I wonder if that will serve as a cap to the price.
