The Philodrill Corporation
Business Profile:

The Philodrill Corporation (the “Company”) was incorporated in 1969, originally, with the primary purpose of engaging in oil, gas and mineral exploration and development. In 1989, realizing the need to balance the risk associated with its petroleum activities, the Company changed its primary purpose to that of a diversified holding company while retaining petroleum and mineral exploration and development as one of its secondary purposes. Thereafter, the Company has maintained investments in petroleum exploration and production, financial services, property development, mining and infrastructure development. On January 16, 2008, stockholders representing at least two-thirds of the Company’s outstanding capital stock approved to change the Company’s primary purpose back to petroleum exploration and development and to relegate and include as a secondary purpose the Company’s holding company purpose clause, which the SEC had approved on April 13, 2009.

The Company’s active petroleum projects cover production and exploration areas in offshore Palawan and South Sulu Sea and onshore Mindoro under various Service Contracts (SC) and Geophysical Survey and Exploration Contracts (GSEC) with the Philippine government through the Department of Energy (DOE).

In the financial services sector, the Company is a 40% shareholder of Penta Capital Investment Corporation (Penta Capital), an investment house. Penta Capital holds equity interest in several companies such as, Penta Capital Finance Corporation, a finance company (98.75% owned), Penta Capital Holdings Inc., an investment holding company (29.54% owned), Penta Capital Realty Corporation (100% owned) and Intra-Invest Securities, Inc. (68.47% owned). The Company also holds a 13.76% direct equity investments in Penta Capital Holdings Inc..

In the mining sector, the Company holds minor equity interests in the following companies: Atlas Consolidated Mining & Development Corporation.; Vulcan Industrial & Mining Corporation and United Paragon Mining Corporation

Philodrill boosts stake in oil fields

Publicly listed The Philodrill Corp. has acquired the minority participating interests of its affiliate in two petroleum service contracts, which cover some 109,000 hectares of existing and potential petroleum areas in northwest Palawan.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Philodrill said it had acquired from Vulcan Industrial and Mining Corp. a 7.22 percent participating interest in SC 6A or the Octon block and 5 percent in the SC 14 Tara block.

The deal was effected through a deed of assignment and assumption.

It was, however, not made clear as to how the interests of the involved consortium members will change after the transaction.

Data from the Department of Energy showed that Philodrill is the operator of SC 6A while the Tara block is operated by Trans-Asia Oil and Energy Development Corp.

According to data from the website of Philodrill, the consortium operating the Octon block planned to spend $546,000 (roughly P23 million) for its work program this year.

The work program involves the reprocessing of some 400 square kilometer of 3D data over the northern block to firm up the various exploration prospects and play in the area including the West Malajon, Barselisa and Salvacion.

The Octon block is said to contain at least 3 billion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas reserves.
Note: Based on the disclosure of OV, the deed of assignment and assumption is subject to the approval of the Department of Energy.

Galoc rehab seen to be ready by Q4

THE SECOND phase of the Galoc oil well development in offshore Palawan is seen to begin soon as rehabilitations there are slated to be completed later this year, Philodrill Corp. said in a disclosure on Friday.

The new system for its floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel Rubicon Intrepid is more than one-third complete and is ready for installation in the fourth quarter, Philodrill said.

The new system will boost FPSO operation uptime by at least 95%, and is seen as a go-signal for the company to begin its Phase 2 development program in Galoc, comprising one to three additional wells in the field.

Oil to be produced in Palawan by January

BLADE PETROLEUM Philippines Ltd. is set to start producing oil from Northwest Palawan either in December or January, an Energy official told reporters in an interview yesterday.

"Philodrill Corp. and Philex Mining Corp. also hold a 1.65% royalty stake in the area."
the key to trading success is to focus on how much money is at risk, not how much money you can make.

trading is simple, but it's not easy. if you want to stay in the business, leave hope at the door, focus on specific setups, and stick to your stops.
Long-term ako rito... fundamentally sound kasi at undervalued pa hehe.
