Reabold Resources Plc (LON: RBD), an upstream oil and gas projects investor, is all set to turn the corner with its successful strategy of investing in low-risk oil and gas projects with high potential upside value. The company has invested in four distinct project areas spread across the UK, Romania, and California (US).
The company’s focus is investing in projects meeting its stringent criteria and in particular, those which are de-risked from a technical perspective. The company’s strategy offers investors exposure to the appraisal and development part of the value chain of an upstream oil & gas project rather than early-stage exploration, which involves considerably greater risk.
Reabold Resources is progressing its West Newton project, which could be the largest UK onshore discovery since 1973 based on the very successful drilling results to date, towards development and potential monetisation. The company has recently reported the commencement of the flow test programme at the B-1Z and A-2 wells at the West Newton field.
The company, with no debt on its balance sheet, is steadily delivering on its strategy and is making its mark in the upstream oil & gas space with its differentiated approach and disciplined, returns focused investment philosophy. The company is run by an efficient and experienced management team leading it to build a portfolio with substantial intrinsic value in a short period of time. Let’s meet the team:
