Ukraine conflict: Front-line troops begin pullout

bbc.com

Ukrainian government troops and Russian-backed separatists have begun withdrawing from a key front-line area in eastern Ukraine.

"The separation of forces in Zolote is happening right now," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said.

A separatist official quoted by Russia's RIA news agency said both sides had fired coloured signalling rockets to mark both sides' withdrawal.

A deal was agreed this month to end the Donbas region's five-year conflict.

Under the deal, both sides were to start withdrawing from their positions in the towns of Zolote and Petrivske on 9 October.

But there were skirmishes between Ukrainian police and war veterans, who tried to prevent the troop pullout.

Will a deal with Russia bring peace to Ukraine?
On 26 October Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the scene and ordered the war veterans to disarm.

Mr Prystaiko said shooting in Zolote stopped on 17 October and the withdrawal began on Tuesday once OSCE international monitors were there to check compliance by both sides.

Ukraine's military high command confirmed that the withdrawal had begun at 12:00 local time (10:00 GMT).

Military representatives from both sides arranged the withdrawal with the OSCE
How did this peace deal come about?
For at least two years the fighting has been much less intense than back in 2014.

There have been daily exchanges of fire, but the front line has remained generally static.

A framework ceasefire deal was agreed in February 2015 - the Minsk agreement - but was soon violated as fighting resumed.

This year there have been several significant moves towards a peace settlement:

President Zelensky was elected by a big majority, having set a Donbas peace deal as his number one priority
In June, Ukrainian troops and separatists withdrew a kilometre from the front-line town of Stanytsia Luhanska
In September, a long-awaited prisoner swap with Russia was finally completed
On 1 October, Ukraine, Russia and the separatists agreed a deal to bring special status to the separatist-held parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (jointly called the Donbas)
What could be the next steps?
Mr Prystaiko said that if the Zolote disengagement goes according to plan, both sides will also withdraw from their positions in Petrivske within the next 10 days.

He also voiced hope that, next month, President Zelensky would meet Russian President Vladimir Putin for peace talks, mediated by the leaders of France and Germany, in what is known as the Normandy format.

"Several times already it was postponed for technical reasons, but you see how complicated all this is," he told reporters on Tuesday. "We are doing all we can to make this meeting happen."

Media captionSurviving the chaos in Ukraine - and living with the memories
The new impetus stems from a plan proposed in 2016 by Germany's then-foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, calling for: free and fair elections in the east under Ukrainian law; verification by the OSCE international security organisation; and self-governing status for Donetsk and Luhansk in return.

What triggered the conflict?
Pro-Russian separatists seized control of large swathes of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in April 2014, just after Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula.

It was an insurgency against the new pro-Western authorities in the capital Kyiv, who had ousted the pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych in street protests dubbed the "Maidan Revolution".

The separatists later declared independence from Ukraine - but no country has recognised their "republics".

Nato and Western intelligence experts have repeatedly accused Russia of sending heavy weapons and combat troops into eastern Ukraine to help the rebels.

Russia denies that, but admits that Russian "volunteers" are helping the rebels.

Today VET announced results and also put out a company presentation. Information regarding their Ukraine purchase was unknown until now. But if you compare the presentation information and maps below, you can see that Vermilion is very close to Cub Energy. So keeping an eye on both companies for drill results. In truth, it almost makes more sense for VET to acquire KUB since VET shares the same JV in Slovakia(NAFTA) and have similar mineral leases. They also share directors.

By Reuters
Nov. 18, 2019
Updated 6:28 a.m. ET

MOSCOW — The Kremlin confirmed on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin would take part in a four-way international summit in Paris on Dec. 9, an attempt to advance efforts for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

The French presidency said on Friday that the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine would take part. But until Monday the Kremlin had failed to publicly confirm its attendance.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday that Putin would attend, but declined to discuss what Moscow's expectations for the event were.

Total Liabilties: $12,527,000 (June Liabilities: $12.444 million)

MD&A Highlights:

• The Company reported income from equity investment of $2,350,000 during the nine months ended
September 30, 2019 as compared to income of $4,953,000 in the comparative 2018 period.
• The Company reported net income of $260,000 or $0.00 per share during the nine months September
30, 2019 as compared to net income of $2,508,000 or $0.01 per share during the same period in 2018.
• The Company recorded $2,790,000 in dividends during the nine months September 30, 2019
compared with $3,847,000 in dividends in the comparative 2018 period.
• Production averaged 824 boe/d (97% weighted to natural gas and the remaining to condensate) for
the nine months September 30, 2019 as compared to 826 boe/d for the 2018 comparative period.
• Netbacks of $18.49/boe or $3.08/Mcfe were achieved for the nine months September 30, 2019 as
compared to netback of $27.22/Boe or $4.54/Mcfe for the comparative 2018 period.
• Achieved average natural gas price of $5.85/Mcf and condensate price of $48.43/bbl during the nine
months September 30, 2019 as compared to $7.47/Mcf and $59.80/bbl for the same period in 2018.
• CNG drilled the U101 well that showed that the prospective reservoir sands were water saturated with
traces of natural gas that indicate there was gas migration, but no viable trapping mechanism in this
particular prospect. The U101 well obtained valuable subsurface geological and petrophysical data
that will be used to refine the seismic mapping and geo-modelling prior to drilling additional wells on
the license. This upcoming study may result in revising the drilling priorities for the identified prospect
inventory.
• Kub-Gas expects to drill a new well called Makeevskoye-30 (“M-30”). The Makeevskoye licence has
produced nearly half of the historical production for Kub-Gas. The M-30 well is expected to spud in Q1
2020.
• During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, Kub-Gas performed a recompletion of the Olgovskoye18 (“O-18”) well in the B-8-9 reservoir which resulted in a 30% increase in production and the well is
now producing at a combined rate of approximately 0.9 million cubic feet per day (“MMcf/d”). KubGas uses its own completion equipment and personnel.
• The Company has determined that the Nitrogen Rejection Unit (“NRU”) requires process
improvements before it can be deployed to Ukraine. The Company is currently negotiating with
engineering firms to complete the required modifications.

Eastern Ukraine KUB-Gas Assets (35%)
Kub-Gas expects to drill the M-30 well in Q1 2020. The Makeevskoye licence has produced nearly half of the
historical production for Kub-Gas. The M-30 well will target the M-7 horizon.
Kub-Gas recompleted the Olgovskoye-7 (“O-7”) well to the M6v which increased its production to 0.6 MMcf/d.
The M6v is a relatively small gas reservoir and the current rate is approximately 0.3 MMcf/d. Kub-Gas also
recently recompleted two other wells for a combined additional increase of approximately 0.35 MMcf/d in
field production. During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, Kub-Gas performed a recompletion of the O18 well in the B-8-9 reservoir which resulted in a 30% increase in production and the well is now producing at
a combined rate of approximately 0.9 MMcf/d. Kub-Gas uses its own completion equipment and personnel, so
the costs are associated with materials and outside services as needed for particular activities. There are
approximately ten other wells with “behind pipe pays” that may be attractive recompletion opportunities in
the Olgovskoye License. As the currently producing intervals deplete, the production team can recomplete
these additional zones in the existing wells.
On the West Olgovskoye licence, Kub-Gas expects to commence a 270 km2 3D seismic program in 2020 to
delineate known structures found from 2D seismic.

Western Ukraine CNG Assets (50% Interest)
In western Ukraine, CNG drilled the U101 well that showed that the prospective reservoir sands were water
saturated with traces of natural gas that indicate there was gas migration, but no viable trapping mechanism
in this particular prospect. The U101 well obtained valuable subsurface geological and petrophysical data that
will be used to refine the seismic mapping and geo-modelling prior to drilling additional wells on the license.
This upcoming study may result in revising the drilling priorities for the identified prospect inventory. The costs
of drilling the first three wells will be incurred 100% by our partner.

Western Ukraine Tysagaz Assets (100% Interest)
The RK field was temporarily suspended on April 1, 2016 because the nitrogen concentration exceeded the
allowable limit stipulated by the gas pipeline operator. The Company is currently selling a modest amount of
rich gas from a deep well to evaluate the Mesozoic formation on the RK field.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, and due to continued delays in the completion of the NRU,
the Company and the NRU manufacturer entered into a mutual release agreement, including the release of
the arbitration claim, in exchange for the Company taking physical possession of the NRU “as is”. The Company
has determined that the NRU requires process improvements before it can be deployed to Ukraine. The
Company is currently negotiating with engineering firms to complete the required modifications

Foreign Currency Translation Income/Loss
During the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, the foreign currency translation income was $1,832,000
as compared to a loss of $1,721,000 in the comparative 2018 quarter. The foreign currency translation income
was $3,011,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to a loss of $376,000 in the
comparative 2018 period. The income and losses relate to the revaluation of the Company’s foreign assets and
liabilities from the local currency (Ukrainian, Canadian and European currencies) to the US dollar in accordance
with the Company’s accounting policy for the translation of its subsidiaries. The recent foreign currency
translation income was primarily the result in the strengthening of the Ukrainian Hryvnya against the US dollar.
The carrying value of the assets of the Ukrainian subsidiaries were materially impacted by the volatility of the
local currencies in the past. The appreciation/devaluation materially raises/lowers the carrying value of the
Ukrainian property, plant and equipment and the value of the equity investment in KUB Holdings. These
gains/losses do not impair the ability of those assets or liabilities to perform their intended purpose.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Financings
At September 30, 2019, the Company had a cash balance of $7,515,000 (December 31, 2018 - $7,236,000) and
working capital deficit of $1,189,000 (December 31, 2018 – working capital of $3,798,000). The working capital
was largely impacted by the Kub Gas loans being classified as current liabilities as a result of callable feature
allowing the loans to be called any time before the maturity date of December 31, 2020. The Kub Gas loans
amount to $5,917,000. The Company had no long-term debt or capital leases other than the Pelicourt loan.
The Company has historically been able to raise funds through the issuance of common shares or debt although
there are no assurances funds will be able in the future.
The Company has a $2,000,000 secured shareholder loan with Pelicourt, a related party to the Company. The
shareholders loan bears interest at 12% per annum payable quarterly and the principal of the shareholder loan
is due on January 31, 2021. Pelicourt was granted security over Gastek which indirectly owns the 35% interest
in KUB-Gas. The security is available on an event of default and limited only to the amount owing on the
shareholder loan including principal and interest.
In June 2017, the Company entered into a second shareholder loan agreement with an officer of the Company.
The shareholder loan is for $1,000,000 with an annual interest rate of 6% payable monthly. The shareholders
loan was repaid in four equal quarterly installments and repaid in full on June 30, 2019.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company received $2,790,000 in dividends from KUB
Holdings as compared to $3,847,000 in dividends in the 2018 comparative period.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company expended $9,000 on capital expenditures as
compared to $219,000 in the 2018 comparative period, which was largely related to the NRU.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, KUB-Gas incurred approximately $1,226,000 (2018 -
$3,444,000) of capital expenditures on property, plant and equipment which was the workovers in 2019 and
primarily the NY-3 well in 2018. CNG expended approximately $1,670,000 for drilling the U101 well during the
nine months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to $71,000 in the 2018 comparative period. The CNG
capital expenditures are largely paid by the company’s 50% equity partner.
There remains significant doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and meet its
obligations as they become due.

Outlook
In eastern Ukraine, Kub-Gas is focused on drilling the Makeevskoye-30 (“M-30”) well in Q1 2020 and evaluating
additional recompletion operations given the success of recompletions in 2018 and 2019. Kub-Gas expects to
commence a 3D seismic program in 2020 on the West Olgovskoye licence to delineate known structures found
from 2D seismic.
In western Ukraine, CNG is utilizing the valuable subsurface data from the U101 well and refining its model to
determine the next drilling priorities. The costs of drilling the first three wells will be incurred 100% by our
partner.

Russia, Ukraine Reach 2nd Prisoner Exchange Dea

Russia, Ukraine Reach 2nd Prisoner Exchange Deal – RBC
10 hours ago

Ukraine and Russia have reached the final stages of an all-for-all prisoner exchange agreement ahead of a key peace summit next month, the RBC news website reported Thursday.

Russia and Ukraine swapped 35 prisoners each in September, a move that appeared to presage a thaw in relations that have been frozen since Moscow annexed Crimea in 2014. Kiev and Moscow said afterward that the sides were working on a fresh prisoner swap ahead of a four-way peace summit on the eastern Ukraine conflict set for Dec. 9.

Ukraine is ready to hand over 250 prisoners in exchange for 100 prisoners held by pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine, RBC cited four unnamed sources familiar with the negotiations as saying.

“The lists have already been agreed and approved,” one of the sources was quoted as saying. “The legal stage is coming to an end.”

The new prisoner swap could be adopted when the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine meet in Paris on Dec. 9, a source close to the Ukrainian president told RBC. Still, the source close to Volodymyr Zelenskiy and an unnamed negotiator cautioned that the exchange depends on the outcome of the four-way summit.

The Sept. 7 exchange included Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, the 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia in the Kerch Strait, potential MH17 crash witness Vladimir Tsemakh and Russian journalist Kirill Vyshinsky.

The conflict between pro-Russian rebels and Ukrainian troops in the Donbass has killed 14,000 people since it broke out in 2014, according to the United Nations.

Ukraine and Russia agree to implement ceasefire

bbc.com

Ukraine and Russia agree to implement ceasefire

2 hours ago

Ukraine and Russia have agreed to implement a "full and comprehensive" ceasefire in eastern Ukraine by the end of 2019, after top-level talks.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelensky met face to face in Paris on Monday.

Five-and-a-half years of fighting between Ukrainian government forces and Russian-backed rebels have cost 13,000 lives.

The negotiations were brokered by the leaders of France and Germany.

They follow a big prisoner swap and the withdrawal of Ukraine's military from three key areas on the front line.

What was agreed?

In a written statement, the countries agreed to the release and exchange of all "conflict-related detainees" by the end of the year.

The two sides also pledged to disengage military forces in three additional regions of Ukraine by the end of March 2020, without specifying which regions would be affected.

Additional talks will be held in four month to take stock of the ceasefire's progress.

At a press conference after the talks in France's Élysée Palace, President Putin hailed the talks as an "important step" towards a de-escalation of the conflict.

President Zelensky said the issue of Russian gas exports via pipelines through Ukraine had been "unblocked" after a dispute about transit tariffs, and an agreement would now be worked out.

But Russia and Ukraine continue to disagree on issues such as the withdrawal of Russia-back troops, and elections in areas of Ukraine held by separatist rebels.

Mr Putin also called for a change in Ukraine's constitution to give special status to the Donbas region, which is held by the rebels.

Ukraine's President Zelensky also told reporters that Ukraine would not make any territorial concessions in exchange for peace.

"We saw differences today," said French President Emmanuel Macron, who hosted the talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"We didn't find the miracle solution, but we have advanced on it," he added.

Ukraine and pro-Russians expected to swap prisoners

aljazeera.com

Ukraine president says exchange should take place on Sunday but details of the planned swap are scarce.

7 hours ago

Ukrainian authorities and pro-Russian separatists in the war-torn east of the country are expected to swap dozens of prisoners in a front-line operation on Sunday.

Both sides had said earlier this month they would carry out a prisoner exchange by the end of the year, following high-profile peace talks in Paris aimed at de-escalating Europe's only active war.

"The exchange should be tomorrow. We're all waiting for it," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Saturday, calling it "the most difficult task this year".

Earlier, a spokeswoman for the self-declared rebel republic of Donetsk, Daria Morozova, announced that there was an agreement for the swap.

She said two separatist territories Donetsk and Lugansk will get 87 prisoners, while 55 others will be handed over to Kyiv, without giving details on the identity of those involved.

The prisoner exchange is expected to take place near the town of Gorlivka in the separatist-held Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine's industrial heartland.

Russian media reported that the operation will take place on the front line.

The swap would come three months after Ukraine carried out a long-awaited exchange with Russia of 35 prisoners each.

More than 13,000 people have been killed since pro-Russia fighters in eastern Ukraine launched a bid for independence in 2014, sparking the conflict.

Details of Sunday's exchange were scarce, with officials saying that lists of prisoners were still being agreed.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Special Representative, Martin Sajdik, confirmed that preparations for the swap were under way.

Peace talks
At the Paris summit this month, the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine agreed to implement a full ceasefire and proceed with a new withdrawal of forces from conflict zones by March 2020.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Zelenskyy also held their first face-to-face talks and agreed on measures to de-escalate the conflict.

The December 9 summit was the first of its kind in three years.

Since coming to power in May, comedian-turned-President Zelenskyy, 41, has sought to revive a peace process to end the separatist conflict.

Putin, Zelenskyy agree to Russia-Ukraine prisoner swap at summit
The Kremlin has sent signals that it is ready to work with Zelenskyy, whom Putin has described as "likeable" and "sincere".

Before the summit, Kyiv and separatists completed a partial troop pullback.

French President Emmanuel Macron said at the time of the Paris meeting a new summit would be held in four months to take stock of progress on ending the conflict.

Countries have sought to revive accords signed in Minsk in 2015 that call for the withdrawal of heavy weapons, the restoration of Kyiv's control over its borders, wider autonomy for Donetsk and Lugansk, and the holding of local elections.

However, there was no sign of warmth between the leaders of Ukraine and Russia in Paris and many doubt whether Putin genuinely wants to settle the conflict.

Speaking in Moscow this month, Putin said if Kyiv gets back control of the border in the east, pro-Russian residents of separatist-held territories could be targeted.

Zelenskyy's peace plan has also been strongly criticised by war veterans and nationalists.

Various nationalist organisations even deployed their own troops to the front line in an effort to prevent a troop pullback in line with peace agreements.

NAFTA confirms its interest in the project in eastern Ukraine

Note: As Ukraine heals from years of battling with rebels (recent peace efforts in December), more companies will continue to invest in Ukraine's lucrative oil and gas assets. Over a million acres have been purchased over the last several months between Vermilion Energy, NAFTA and other large cap companies. This bodes well for Cub Energy Inc as the company holds 140,000 acres of mostly producing assets with many drill targets. Below it also mentions the "Uzhgorod license with a partner" this is Cub Energy. NAFTA still has 2 wells to drill at no cost to Cub, along with a dozen other possible targets after that. Add in the NRU project(completed by end of 2020) and the Eastern wells (M30 to start shortly) and we have a wonderful evolving story. Company is well funded and has great cash flow. The sell off in the fall was just a large shareholder from years ago that wanted out, but does not justify the true value of the company at present time.

nafta.sk

Bratislava / Prague, 9 December 2019 - NAFTA as, together with the EPH energy group, are continuing their joint efforts to acquire the Yuzivska project in eastern Ukraine.




NAFTA as (NAFTA) and EPPE Power Europe (EPPE) are prepared to jointly develop the Yuzivska project under conditions approved by the Government of Ukraine. Both companies belong to the energy group Energy Industrial Holding (EPH), and were approved by the Interministerial Commission at the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy as investors who meet the technical and financial conditions for the development of the Yuzivska project.

NAFTA will act as a technical operator in the project. The company has been operating in the field of hydrocarbon exploration and extraction for more than 105 years and intends to use the unique know-how it has gained from many projects in the project for many years in its core areas. In addition, NAFTA has been actively operating in Ukraine since 2016, where they are developing a Uzhgorod license with a partner.

“The EPH Group declares a continuing interest in the Yuzivska project and is ready to assume the relevant investment obligations under the approved Production Sharing Agreement (PSA). Our subsidiary EP Yuzivska is ready to sign a PSA approved by the Ukrainian government and EPH is ready to issue a guarantee to the parent company to secure the financial resources needed for the implementation and rapid development of the Yuzivska project immediately after its approval. Since we have a detailed mapping of the project, we can guarantee the timely extraction of hydrocarbons for the Ukrainian market, ” said a source from the EPH Group.

“Yuzivska is a greenfield project associated with a high geological risk and requires extensive research work. We believe that by implementing our know-how, experience and methods, we will be able to uncover the full potential of the license. As part of this project, we are ready to allocate our capacities to Ukraine in order to fully develop this project and ensure increased energy independence of Ukraine, ” said the CEO of NAFTA as

NAFTA as is an international company with extensive experience in the field of storage and construction of underground gas storage facilities in Slovakia and also a Slovak leader in the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons. The company is active in Central European countries and is present in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and Ukraine. NAFTA operates underground storage facilities in several countries, conducts exploration activities and participates in renewable energy storage projects. With a total storage capacity of approximately 60 TWh, it is the 6th largest gas storage operator in Europe.
