Maris Client, Edison Investment Research, a leading international investment research firm, announces the initiation of full coverage of Otto Energy.
Otto Energy (OEL) is an ASX-listed E&P with interests in two operated permits in the offshore Philippines (SC55 and SC73) and two non-operated blocks onshore Tanzania (Kilosa-Kilombero and Pangani).
Maris Interiors LLP has completed a 9,400 sq ft office design & fit-out project for Edison at 280 High Holborn. Our workplace design scheme incorporates a reception area, presentation areas, meeting rooms and break-out area. The office configuration also allows for sub-tenancy.
Tom Carless, Finance & Operations Director said about Maris: “You have delivered the project, brought everything to life and always acted in a professional manner. As a Client we were always kept informed of developments and you had strong practical advice and effective solutions to issues when they arose. We could not have had a better person to deliver the fit out, engaging from the start but robust when needed.”
The Philippines is a proven oil and gas province, and Otto’s Tanzanian licences lie to the south of proven basins in Uganda and Kenya. On 12 December 2014, Otto received from Nido Petroleum an offer of US$108m for its 33% share in the operated Galoc oil field in the Philippines, surpassing a previous offer by Risco Energy. The sale, completed on 17 February 2015, represents a material change in strategy for Otto and was agreed at a propitious time given the oil price decline.
Following a proposed US$58m capital return to shareholders, Otto will retain sufficient cash to fund its planned exploration activities over the next 18-24 months. In particular, the company plans to drill the 95mmbbl Hawkeye-1 deepwater oil prospect in the Philippines in Q315.
In January 2015 Otto announced a deal to farm down a 15% WI in its SC55 licence to PNOC (down to 78.2% WI). It may further reduce its interests in the Philippines and in its Tanzanian blocks (50% WI) before drilling to mitigate exploration risks and fund its drilling plan.
The office design principle for this project understands that Stability and Trust are the key elements for a professional business. Therefore a strong centre is at the heart of the planning principle. Transparency and connectivity are aligned with the business vision of being open, committed, rigorous and innovative
