Company Overview

Sun Resources NL (“Sun”) is a public company based in Perth, Western Australia that is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (“ASX”) under the code “SUR”. Sun’s key exploration and production assets are in the state of Texas in the USA. 

Sun’s focus is on the exploration and development of oil and gas, particularly in Texas and Louisiana, targeting assets that are expected to be commercially viable in the current low oil price environment. Sun has an interest in 3,734 net acres located in the Woodbine Tight Oil Play (“Eaglebine”) approximately 150km north of Houston. Success over the coming years is expected to be delivered through growth in Sun’s share price, from successful drilling and the increase in value of its 3,734 net acres leases in the Woodbine Play.

Sun’s existing leases are close to infrastructure, which together with its location close to Houston (the world’s leading centre for oil services and technology), results in the ability to rapidly produce and sell any oil discovered. Fiscal (tax) terms in Texas are among some of the best in the world. The Woodbine Tight Oil Play is promising but at an early stage of development, offering investors in Sun the potential to benefit as the play is successfully de-risked.

The global oil and gas industry continues to weather the effects of sustained low oil prices.  As a consequence, Sun has been working with its key stakeholders and major shareholders to deliver a sustainable business plan based on a conservative oil price forecast of between US$40-65 per barrel in fiscal outlook years: 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.  To do this, the Sun Board and management team is focussed on identifying oil and gas development asset opportunities that deliver near-term oil production with breakeven economics below a US$40 per barrel benchmark price in today’s dollars.  This change of direction is to sustain Sun through the ongoing oil price trough and to capitalise on substantial revenue and capital account tax losses that Sun has accumulated in the USA and Australia.  Sun is evaluating a number of oil and gas opportunities in the USA that target reasonable rates of return with near term cash flow (1-2 years).  Announcements will be made as and when the evaluation and assessment process is completed.
 
Sun currently has two substantial shareholders; Fast Lane Australia Pty Ltd and Winform Nominees Pty Ltd.
