The Cub Energy proxy states one resolution of a rollback being considered if appropriate. I myself and several associates of mine have verified that this will not happen unless a major asset is acquired. If you look on SEDAR, several prior proxy forms show a rollback and this is just carrying forward.

From the 2019 proxy: to amend the Articles of the Corporation to consolidate the issued and outstanding common shares in a range of one common share for up to every 10 of the issued and outstanding common shares that the board of directors, in its sole discretion, determines to be appropriate;

Below is the website for NAFTA Gas, the JV partner who will be drilling 3 major wells this summer and KUB owns 50% of the lease and isn't paying a penny to drill those wells. As you will see on the Nafta website, this is a serious company with plans to expand across Europe. They have been waiting since 2016 to drill these wells and now the time has come to get the project started. Keeping in mind they sepent some serious money doing seismic and understand the geology perfectly since the same reservoir on the Slovakia side is owned by them. Compare the Nafta map to page 9 of the Kub presentation and you'll see how close their facility is to our lease.

Cub Energy recompletes Olgovskoye-3 well in Ukraine

2018-11-20 07:52 MT - News Release

Mr. Mikhail Afendikov reports

CUB ENERGY INC. ANNOUNCES THE SUCCESSFUL RECOMPLETION OF THE O-3 WELL IN EASTERN UKRAINE

Cub Energy Inc.'s KUB-Gas LLC, owner and operator of the eastern Ukraine licences, has released results of its recent recompletion of the Olgovskoye-3 well.

Kub-Gas utilized its own workover rig and crew to recomplete a productive gas sand interval designated as the Bashkirian-1b. The well has stabilized at a rate of 1.4 million cubic feet per day since October, 2018.

Mikhail Afendikov, chairman and chief executive officer of Cub Energy, commented: "The successful O-3 recompletion, coupled with the recent success of the O-9 recompletion in the second quarter of 2018, has increased the total field production by almost 20 per cent. Given the recent successes of the recompletions, their relatively low cost and the high gas price environment in Ukraine at present, Kub-Gas's priority is to focus on additional recompletion candidates, of which at least 10 wells have been identified."

About Cub Energy Inc.

Cub Energy is an upstream oil and gas company, with a proven record of exploration and production cost-efficiency in Ukraine. The company's strategy is to implement western technology and capital, combined with local expertise and ownership, to increase value in its undeveloped land base, creating and further building a portfolio of producing oil and gas assets within a high pricing environment.

Ukraine Faces a Bleak Winter as Russia Prepares to Cut Off Gas
The head of Ukraines state gas company Naftogaz expects deliveries to stop on January 1, 2020.

https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/05/06/ukraine-faces-a-bleak-winter-as-russia -prepares-to-cut-off-gas-a65496

If Russia does cut off gas to Ukraine, local producer pricing could easily double given supply/demand metrics. KUB could double their current cash flow and more depending on how many new wells are drilled.

Management Discussion Highlights

Highlights
The Company reported income from equity investment of $1,522,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to income of $1,706,000 in the comparative 2018 quarter.
The Company reported net income of $962,000 or $0.00 per share during the three months March 31, 2019 as compared to net income of $779,000 or $0.00 per share during the same period in 2018.
The Company recorded $1,684,000 in dividends during the three months March 31, 2019 compared with $1,054,000 in dividends in the first quarter of 2018.
Production averaged 895 boe/d (97% weighted to natural gas and the remaining to condensate) for the three months March 31, 2019 as compared to 837 boe/d for the 2018 first quarter.
Netbacks of $24.49/boe or $4.08/Mcfe were achieved for the three months March 31, 2019 as compared to netback of $25.93/Boe or $4.32/Mcfe for the comparative 2018 period.
Achieved average natural gas price of $7.11/Mcf and condensate price of $42.57/bbl during the three months March 31, 2019 as compared to $7.16/Mcf and $60.60/bbl for the first quarter of 2018.
Kub-Gas recompleted the Olgovskoye-7 (O-7) well during 2019 and it is currently being tested.

The Company and its partner plan to drill a three-well exploration program at Uzhgorod in mid 2019, dependent on timing of permitting and weather conditions. To date, the long-lead items for drilling have been delivered and road construction to the drill pads has commenced. The cost of for the first three wells are financed 100% by our partner.
Eastern Ukraine KUB-Gas Assets (35%)

Kub-Gas recompleted the O-7 well in 2019 and is awaiting testing. 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. Opportunities such as these generate above average returns for shareholders, particularly given the current gas price in Ukraine. Kub-Gas is also contemplating drilling a new well on the Makeevskoye Licence later in 2019. The Company expects to commence a 3D seismic program later this year should improve the probability of success of future exploration wells.

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. Subsequent to the three months ended March 31, 2019, 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 NRU has been relocated to another manufacturer in the Houston, Texas area and will undergo an evaluation and testing during the summer of 2019 to determine what is required to complete the NRU.

Western Ukraine CNG Assets (50% Interest)

The Company and its partner plan to drill a three-well exploration program at Uzhgorod in mid 2019, dependent on timing of permitting and weather conditions. To date, the long-lead items for drilling have been delivered and road construction to the drill pads has commenced. The cost of for the first three wells are financed 100% by our partner.

Ukraine Gas Prices and Currency

The Ukrainian exchange, the Hryvnya (UAH) rate versus the USD was 27.25 UAH/USD at March 31, 2019, which was relatively flat as compared to the 27.76 UAH/USD at December 31, 2018. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, gas prices realized were $7.11/Mcf which was relatively flat compared to the comparative 2018 price of $7.16/Mcf. The future of natural gas prices in Ukraine is currently subject to a high degree of uncertainty and it is unknown what the future prices the Company will receive on its Ukraine production.

Commencing August 2016, the Companys wholly owned subsidiary, Tysagaz, began taking possession of its 35% ownership of gas produced at KUB-Gas. Tysagaz purchased the gas from KUB-Gas at the same price that KUB-Gas sold its gas to an affiliate of the majority shareholder of KUB-Gas. The Company agreed to this arrangement so it could attempt to earn additional net income on the gas sales price sold to majority shareholders affiliate. There were impairment charges that impacted net losses in 2017. During the quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company recorded impairment charges due to the carrying value of its petroleum and natural gas assets exceeding the net present value of expected future cash flows using a discount rate of 26%. The high discount rate relates to the local discount rate in Ukraine and related country risk at that time. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company took a $5,300,000 impairment charge relating to the RK field and an impairment on its equity investment in Kub Holdings of $10,700,000.

Revenue from Gas Sales, Net of Royalty

The Company began selling a modest amount of rich gas from the RK field in western Ukraine from a deep well (RK-1) in the Mesozoic formation resulting in revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2019 of $49,000 as compared to $nil in the comparative 2018 period.

Revenue from Gas Trading, Net of Cost of Sales for Gas Trading

Commencing August 2016, the Companys wholly owned subsidiary, Tysagaz, began taking possession of some of its 35% ownership of gas produced at KUB-Gas. Tysagaz purchased the gas from KUB-Gas at the same price that KUB-Gas sold its gas to an affiliate of the majority shareholder of KUB-Gas. The Company agreed to this arrangement so it could attempt to earn additional net income from the gas sales price sold to the majority owners affiliate. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded $4,479,000 in gas trading revenue and $4,240,000 for the cost of the gas trading for a net profit of $239,000 as compared to $5,670,000 in gas sales and $5,516,000 for the cost of the sales for a net profit from gas trading of $154,000 during the comparative 2018 quarter.

Income from Equity Investments

The Company accounts for its 35% indirect ownership in KUB Holdings and 50% ownership of CNG Holdings as investments under the equity method. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, KUB-Gas generated gross revenues of approximately $9,724,000 (2018 - $9,791,000) and had net income of $4,349,000 (2018 $4,872,000). This resulted in a net income to the Company from its equity investment for the quarterly period of $1,522,000 (2018 $1,706,000). The net income at CNG Holdings was $30,000 (2018 $8,000) during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Net income in both periods primarily related to finance income, net of finance expense, on intercompany loans and the effects of foreign exchange to funds the exploration activities in Ukraine. The Company only records income/losses in its consolidated financial statements from its equity investment in CNG Holdings to the extent of interest in the equity investment which amounted to nil as at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

Outlook

In eastern Ukraine, Kub-Gas is focused on additional recompletion operations given the success of the O-3 and O-9 recompletions in 2018. The O-7 recompletion was performed in 2019 and is awaiting testing. Three other recompletion opportunities are in the permitting phase. Kub-Gas may drill one additional well in late 2019 on the Makeevskoye Licence and kickoff a 3D seismic program on the WO licence to delineate known structures found from 2D seismic.

In western Ukraine, the Company and its partner plan to start a three well exploration program in the Uzhgorod license in mid 2019 on structures defined by 3D seismic. The three-well program is to be financed 100% by our partner

Kub-Gas may drill one additional well in late 2019 on the Makeevskoye Licence and kickoff a 3D seismic program on the WO licence to delineate known structures found from 2D seismic.

In western Ukraine, the Company and its partner plan to start a three-well exploration program in the Uzhgorod license in mid 2019 on structures defined by 3D seismic. The three-well program is to be financed 100% by our partner.

Regarding KUB, the new Ukrainian president today said his top priority is peace with the rebels in Eastern Ukraine. This means if it happens, the area will be secured and KUB can drill without any worry or issue. This also includes investors looking at the company in a different light and bringing back value, especially since Cub Energy trades at a major discount compared to it's earnings and growth potential through drilling.

I was referred to some interesting notes regarding KUB and I missed this because it was in the financials as a note and not the MD&A. Keep in mind that Cub Energy Inc holds 35% of KUB Holdings and increasing that to 40%(5% increase) would be a significant revenue boost given current production AND all the wells being worked on now.

Per Note 1, the Company has the ability to further increase its ownership interest in KUB Holdings from 35%
to 40% on meeting certain benchmarks and optional payments. The Company can earn an additional 2.5%
ownership interest when the majority owner of KUB Holdings has received a cumulative $25,000 in dividends
from KUB Holdings of which they have received $16,873 as at March 31, 2019. The Company also has an
option to purchase, within one year of the above-mentioned 2.5% transfer from the majority owner, a further
2.5% ownership interest in KUB Holdings at a price equal to 2.5% of the net present value of 2P reserves of
KUB-Gas at a 10% discount at the time of exercise.

Another note to follow given the excess of cash in the bank for KUB.V:

During the year ended December 31, 2018 and the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company
purchased Guaranteed Investment Certificates with a Canadian financial institution with annual interest rates
between 2.26% and 2.5% that are redeemable at any time

June 19th 2019 Interview: Majors expected back in hunt for Ukraine gas as activity picks up

https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/natural-gas/06191 9-interview-majors-expected-back-in-hunt-for-ukraine-gas-as-activity-picks-up 5279;

London International energy majors will be tempted back to Ukraine to drill for gas in the future, according to the head of the country's gas industry association, on the back of a period of intense exploration activity in the eastern European nation.

Ukraine, whose gas production has been steady at some 20 Bcm/year for the past 25 years, has vast untapped potential in its onshore blocks -- both for conventional and unconventional resources -- as well as in the Black Sea.

New exploration has been hampered in the past by the lack of a transparent licensing process and concern over political instability. But Ukraine is now looking to attract international companies back to the upstream through a series of tenders and license rounds for blocks.

"The majors will come. It is just a matter of time," Roman Opimakh, the executive director of the Association of Gas Producers of Ukraine, said in an interview.

Big hitters such as Chevron and Shell came to Ukraine in the early 2010s in an attempt to develop the country's unconventional gas resources, but none remain.


Drilling resurgence

Despite that, the upstream in Ukraine is enjoying a resurgence with 84 active rigs drilling exploration, development and production wells in the country -- almost half of the 186 rigs operational in Europe -- according to Baker Hughes.

"The number of wells drilled in Ukraine has increased significantly since 2017," Opimakh said. "Many positive reforms have been introduced for the upstream industry in the past two years."

Last year more than 150 wells were spudded, mostly in eastern Ukraine where reserves are located at deeper intervals of more than 5,000 meters.

"The domestic fleet of rigs has been modernized and sophisticated rigs are coming to replaced outdated equipment," Opimakh said, adding that foreign outsourced contractors were also contributing resources.

The increased activity could help Ukraine boost its domestic gas production as the government looks to eliminate imports, which currently all come from Europe after it halted direct Russian gas purchases in November 2015. Domestic gas production has edged up in recent years, reaching 20.9 Bcm in 2018.

Opimakh expected it would take "5-6 years" for Ukraine to become self-sufficient in gas -- meaning Ukraine could produce all the gas it needs by 2024 -- assuming annual demand remained in the range of 30-32 Bcm.

In a bid to boost exploration yet further, some 36 blocks have been offered in 2019 in two tenders for 50-year production sharing agreements and three license rounds for 20-year exploration contracts.

The PSA tenders have attracted the most international interest, with bids from Canada's Vermilion Energy, US-based Aspect Energy, Slovakia's Nafta and Poland's Unimot.

The deadline for bids for the nine onshore blocks was May 28 and for the offshore Dolphin block was June 12, with results of both expected within one month of their deadlines (June 28 and July 12, respectively).

Opimakh said four companies had submitted bids for the Dolphin block, located in the shallow waters of the Black Sea.

"There is significant interest, especially taking in account ongoing political elections in Ukraine," he said.


License rounds

As well as the PSA tenders, three rounds of bidding for smaller exploration licenses have been held, hosted on an open electronic platform to ensure full transparency following accusations of wrongdoing in previous contract awards to upstream companies in the country.

A total of 26 blocks were offered, with 16 block licenses awarded. Some 10 of the blocks across the three rounds received no bids.

The big winner in the three bid rounds was Ukraine's state-owned UkrGasVydobuvannya (UGV), a subsidiary of Naftogaz Ukrayiny, with a total of 13 blocks awarded.

The other three were awarded to private Ukraine-based upstream companies: Burisma, DTEK, and Yedyna Oil & Gas.

A further six blocks were expected to be auctioned at a later date along with the 10 blocks not awarded in the first three rounds.

The 36 blocks offered so far -- including those in the PSA tenders -- cover a combined acreage of some 25,000 sq km and are all in well-developed petroleum provinces of Ukraine, Opimakh said.

"The chance of making a discovery is high," he said.


Asked what obstacles there were to even more upstream activity in Ukraine, Opimakh said the country still needed to "simplify the access to geological data" to attract more investors.

Club members only: Would foreign companies be allowed to extract Ukraine's gas?

https://112.international/article/club-members-only-would-foreign-companies-be-a llowed-to-extract-ukraines-gas-41254.html

Foreign investors are making another attempt to break into Ukraines gas production industry. The competition to attract investors to the development of nine oil and gas areas on the terms of production-sharing agreements involves six foreign companies. Foreigners are taking part in the competition for the shelf area: the name of the winning company to be announced no earlier than September. Ukrgazvydobyvannia state-owned enterprise and companies owned by Ukrainian oligarchs also participate in the competition.


Crony gas perspectives

Despite the declarations of the authorities, in recent years not a single major foreign investor was able to enter Ukraine. Permits for the best deposits were concentrated in the hands of the Ukrainian oligarchs and state-owned companies; about a third of them fell into the hands of the speculators. Almost 80% of gas in Ukraine is mined by the state-owned Ukrgazvydobyvannia and the semi-state-owned Ukrnafta (oligarch Igor Kolomoysky maintains control over the company). Private companies have no more than 20% of production DTEK strategic holding company of oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, companies controlled by Igor Kolomoysky, Regal Petroleum, part of Smart Holding of MP Vadym Novinsky, Geo Alliance of oligarch Viktor Pinchuk, Burisma company of Mykola Zlochevsky.

Another part of special permits is concentrated in the hands of second-hand dealers, who are waiting for the best time to resell the companies. At the same time, these blocks do not operate. According to the State Service of Geology and Mineral Resources of Ukraine, there is about a third of frozen special permits.


After world giants Shell and Chevron left Ukraine in 2014-2015, foreign companies in the field of gas production were represented rather modestly. Cub Energy operates in Ukraine, the largest shareholder of which is Mikhail Afendikov, a native of eastern Ukraine, which has become a US citizen. The company implements, in particular, a joint (50 to 50%) project with the Slovak Nafta on the Uzhgorod gas area (301.4 sq. km). Gas production within the framework of this project is not in progress yet: a 3D seismic survey was carried out on the area, which made it possible to estimate possible reserves, three exploration wells were planned to be drilled.


Since 2015, Nafta has been trying to become a party to the production sharing agreement for Yuzivska Square (Kharkiv and Donetsk regions), from which the American Shell emerged. According to the Nadra Ukraine national company, Yuzivska PSA Block is promising for the search for reserves of natural gas, shale gas, the gas of central basin type, methane, oil, condensate, and also coal deposits. Potential reserves of the area are estimated at 148 billion cubic meters of natural gas, 3200 billion cubic meters of shale gas/gas of the central-basin type. The area can give an estimated annual production of more than 10 billion cubic meters.

In mid-December, Ukraines Cabinet approved the transfer of 90% of the rights and obligations of Nadra Yuzivska to the production sharing agreement for Yuzivska PSA Block in favor of Yuzgaz B.V, belongs to entrepreneurs Yaroslav Kinakh and Timothy M. Elliott. Liubomyr Kopchyk, the director of Nafta representative office in Ukraine, voiced the intention to buy out 100% of Yuzgaz B.V from entrepreneurs, which would allow Nafta to enter the project and begin to study and develop Yuzivska PSA Block. The deal has not been completed yet. There are no necessary decisions of the Antimonopoly Committee and the Kharkiv Regional Council. Also, the environmental impact assessment is still not done. According to the World Bank, not only in the hydrocarbon industry but in general in the economy of Ukraine in 2018, foreign investment is only 2% of GDP, which is very small.

Why are foreigners interested in Ukraines subsoil?

The interest of foreign companies in the Ukrainian subsoil became obvious after two large-scale projects to attract investors to develop 9 areas on land and one on the Black Sea shelf. The total area of the plots exceeds 20 thousand square meters. The results of the competition on the shelf will be announced no earlier than September. After the major foreign players left in 2015, new ones did not come due to the lack of an attractive investment climate, said Roman Opimakh, Executive Director of the Association of Gas Production Companies of Ukraine.

"For many years, Ukraine had a monopoly of state-owned companies on oil and gas production, and there were practically no auctions for oil and gas subsoil. Moreover, hydrocarbon rent was extremely high. There was no access to the subsoil, regulatory environment, and regulatory systems were unstable, access to land was problematic, local authorities conducted situational blocking of work - these factors have created an unfavorable investment climate," the press service of one of Ukraines largest gas producing companies D Fuel and Naftogaz Energy Complex (they participate in a competition to conclude a PSA on Sofiivska and Zinkivska PSA blocks).

The current competition for 9 gas areas is the first serious competition and an attempt to attract an investor, said Vadym Bodayev, the head of the American Sigma Bleyzer Foundation in Ukraine (together with Aspect Energy applied for a PSA competition on Varvynska Block).


In recent years, Ukrainian authorities have done a lot of work to change the regulatory and investment environment in the field of gas production, Yulia Borzhemsk, manager of regulatory policy at DTEK Naftogaz, noted. They have elaborated the special stabilization clause regarding the fixation of stimulating rents for the period from January 1, 2018, to January 1, 2023, she stated.

What foreign companies claim to manage Ukrainian subsoil?

Vermilion Energy, the Canadian company, claims for four out of nine development projects on land on a PSA basis. The stock is listed on New York and Toronto stock exchanges. According to Opimakh, the company's main business is concentrated in North America: the region accounts for 62% of Vermilions total production. The company operates in 10 more countries: seven of them are located in Europe: France, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia. Presented by Vermilion and in Australia. Its market capitalization is $ 5.5 billion. Revenue in 2018 is $ 1.25 billion, profit is $ 240 million. The company has experience in the extraction of traditional and unconventional gas deposits.

Slovakian Nafta together with EPH, a vertically integrated energy-industrial holding, which owns 68% of the company (another 29% is owned by the state of Slovakia), also claims to Sofiyivska PSA Block. EPH is among the ten largest energy companies in Europe. The total installed capacity of generating facilities, including two NPPs located in Slovakia, exceeds 24.3 GW, and the annual production of electrical energy reaches 100.2 TWh.

Pretending to Varvynska Block, Sigma Bleyzer is the largest private equity fund operating in the country with assets of over $ 1 billion. Its founder, Mikhail Bleyzer, emigrated to the United States in 1978, and from the 90s began to conduct business in Ukraine. The most successful and well-known project of Blazer is the creation of Volya Kabel telecommunication company, which has become the largest provider of television and the Internet. The fund withdrew from the project in 2007, selling the company at a price peak for about $ 300 million with an initial investment of $ 12 million. In total, Sigma Bleyzer invested up to 100 million euros in telecommunications. One of the co-investors was the EBRD.

Who else wants to produce gas?

Competition to foreign companies in the PSA competition consists of the largest Ukrainian gas producers. In particular, the company DTEK Naftogaz, which specializes in deep drilling (over 5 thousand meters). Since 2013, the company has increased its gas production in Ukraine three times. DTEK Naftogaz participates in tenders for Sofiyivska and Zinkivska PSA Blocks.

Ukraines well-known gas producers Geo Alliance Group of Viktor Pinchuk (claims for Sofiyivska Block), Ukrnaftoburinnia of Igor Kolomoysky, Vitaliy Homutynnik, and Pavlo Fuks (claims for Rusanivska and Zinkivska PSA Blocks) also take part in the competition. Ukrnaftoburinnia also claims on the site Dolphin, located on the shelf. Semi-state enterprise Ukrnafta, co-owned by Kolomoysky, also takes part in the competition. Despite the difficult situation with tax debt and regulatory restrictions, the company increased production by 10.1% over 5 months of the current year, producing 481.5 million cubic meters of gas. Ukrnafta filed applications for Rusanivska and Sofiyivska PSA Blocks. Eurogas Ukraine is one of the participants, but there is no information about it, it claims for Zinkivska Block.


Related: Naftogaz comments on Gazprom statements about direct gas supplies contract from Russia


However, the biggest irritation among market participants is caused by Ukrgazdobuvannia, which, in addition to the four areas for which it claims together with Vermilion, has applied for five other areas on land. The claims of Ukrgazdobuvannia in all nine areas are not clear. This is not a private company. According to our information, at least 70 licenses that the company already has are not completely used.

Unofficially, Ukrgazdobuvannia talked about some interests in developing f the shelf. In addition, another subsidiary of Naftogaz, Chornomornaftogaz company, has extensive experience in drilling on the shelf.

Why does Ukraine need foreigners in its gas production?

In such conditions, it is difficult to predict whether foreign investors will be able to win the battle, however. However, if at least one foreign investor concludes a real PSA in Ukraine, there will be many more advantages than disadvantages.

In particular, this will increase the attractiveness of Ukraine in the eyes of other foreign players, who are closely watching the development of the situation. It also activates the demand for services, and in fact, even the processes that occurred in the last 5 years in the country, gave a huge boost to the service market. Over the past three years, such players as Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes GE, Weatherford, NOV, Bentec, Crosco, Honghua, National Oilwell Varco, Tacrom, Belarusneft have entered Ukraine over the past three years, Ukrgazdobuvannia press service reported.

A lot of investors are still ignorant to the fact that Russia will be cutting off Ukraine's natural gas in 4 months. Don't have to be an economist to understand supply/demand metrics here and that prices will sky rocket in that country, making producers like Cub Energy extremely important.

Kyiv Pursues Additional Reverse Gas Flows In Preparation For Potential Russian Gas-Transit Cutoff

August 20, 2019 05:36 GMT

Ukraine's state-run gas-transport company, Ukrtransgaz, is preparing to open another reverse-flow point for the import of an additional 1.5 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas by January 1 in anticipation of Russia halting gas transit through the country when their contract expires at the end of the year.

In an August 19 news release, pipeline operator Ukrtransgaz said the fuel will come from Romania via Ukraine's shared border with Moldova, where gas-metering stations will be upgraded on both sides to accommodate the expected volume of gas.

"For Ukraine and Moldova, this project is of strategic importance, because by diversifying the gas-supply routes, both states will increase their dependability and the uninterrupted supply of gas to their customers," Ukrtransgaz said.

The additional volume is the equivalent of 15 percent of last year's total imports.

However, the 50-kilometer stretch of the modernized gas line will cross Transdniester, Moldova's pro-Russian breakaway region. Ukrtransgaz didn't focus on the issue of Russia possibly interfering with this gas flow.

Since Ukraine's gas-transportation system is designed for output, pipelines need to be upgraded to open so-called reverse gas flows.

Ukraine already receives gas this way from Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary. Kyiv stopped importing gas from Russia in November 2015 after Moscow invaded Ukrainian territory and annexed its Crimean Peninsula the previous year.

Ukrtransgaz said it was currently in talks with its Romanian counterpart, SNTGN Tansgaz, as well as other countries to receive the gas from the Trans-Balkan pipeline.

In 2018, Ukraine imported 10.6 billion cubic meters of gas, or one-third of what the country consumed.

Fears that Russia's Gazprom will completely stop gas transit through Ukraine next year, when Moscow's Nord Stream 2 pipeline network goes online, are forcing Ukraine to store higher volumes of gas in underground storage facilities ahead of winter.

Ukrtransgaz operates 12 gas-storage facilities that have a total capacity of 31 bcm.

The company has completed upgrading five gas compressor stations that will allow them to pump gas from reservoirs in western Ukraine to eastern and southern Ukraine.

The pipeline operator is owned by state-run Naftogaz Group, a vertically-integrated oil and gas company.

Cub Energy's CNG begins drilling Uzhgorod-101 well

2019-09-16 06:29 MT - News Release


Mr. Patrick McGrath reports

CUB ENERGY ANNOUNCES SPUDDING OF FIRST OF THREE WELLS IN WESTERN UKRAINE

CNG LLC, Cub Energy Inc.'s 50-per-cent-owned subsidiary which owns and operates the western Ukraine Uzhgorod licence, has commenced drilling of the Uzhgorod-101 (U-101) well. This is the first well in a three-well drill program for which all costs will be borne 100% by our partner, NAFTA International B.V. ("NAFTA"). The average planned depth of the wells is in range from 1,500 to 1,900 metres to evaluate several prospective horizons identified by 3D seismic.

Mikhail Afendikov, Chairman and CEO of Cub said: "The spudding of the U-101 well is a major milestone for Cub. This is a cumulative effort between Cub and NAFTA as we performed 3D seismic, generated an inventory of prospects and are now executing with the drilling of our first exploratory well. These wells all qualify for the reduced 12% royalty."

The Uzhgorod licence encompasses approximately 75,000 gross acres. The licence adjoins Cub's 100%-owned producing RK field and is near the producing Ptruksa field located on the Slovakian side of the border.

Some interesting information I found today. Recently, large cap Canadian company Vermillion Energy purchased almost 600,000 acres of natural gas leases in Eastern Ukraine, right in the same region as Cub Energy: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/vermilion-energy-inc-announces-results-for -the-three-and-six-months-ended-june-30-2019-816869944.html

Then I also saw on Vermillion Energy's website that they are partnered in Slovakia with NAFTA, the same partner KUB has right now, drilling the JV wells in the West.

In Slovakia, we have partnered with NAFTA, the country's dominant E&P in a farm-in arrangement which grants us a 50% working interest to jointly explore 490,000 acres across two licenses. In Ukraine, we have been awarded two exploration licenses in a 50/50 partnership with Ukrgazvydobuvannya ("UGV“), a Ukrainian state owned gas producer: https://www.vermilionenergy.com/our-operations/europe/central-eastern-europe.cfm

The point here is that Vermillion is likely to buy Cub Energy down the road for their production and large lease holdings.

https://ekonomika.sme.sk/c/22215680/nafta-zacala-na-ukrajine-hladat-nove-loziska -plynu.html

Diesel began to look for new gas deposits in Ukraine

The depth of all three wells will be in the range of 1500 - 1900 meters.

18 Sep 2019 at 14:15 TASR

BRATISLAVA. Nafta has started exploration license and is looking for gas fields in western Ukraine.

Together with American company Cub Energy Inc. announced the launch of the first of three planned exploration wells under the Uzhgorod license.

Reducing dependence on imports

The depth of all three boreholes will be in the range of 1500 - 1900 meters, the company said on its website.

The Slovak company thus helps Ukraine to reduce its dependence on Russian gas imports.

Under the license Uzhhorod Nafta with Cub Energy conducted a 3D seismic survey over an area of ​​118 square kilometers. As a result, several prospective sites were identified.

"We consider working with Cub Energy Inc. to be a successful start to our foreign activities. We particularly appreciate that this partnership has given the opportunity to showcase our extensive experience in areas such as geology, bearing engineering and drilling," said Nafta CEO Martin Bartosovic.

Mining license

Cub Energy Inc. acquired a 20-year mining license in Uzhgorod covering an area of ​​approximately 300 square kilometers in March 2016.

Diesel, through its subsidiary Nafta International BV, entered the Ukrainian market after acquiring 50% of Uzhgorod license three months later.

Uzhgorod license is a geological continuation of already explored areas in eastern Slovakia and follows the trend of discovered deposits in Slovakia.

Nafta is the sixth largest operator of gas storage facilities in Europe and also a Slovak leader in the exploration and production of hydrocarbons.

The company is active in Central European countries and is present in the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria in addition to Slovakia and Ukraine .

Cub finds trace natural gas in first Uzhgorod well

2019-10-21 14:28 MT - News Release


Mr. Mikhail Afendikov reports

CUB ENERGY ANNOUNCES UPDATE ON DRILLING OF WELLS IN WESTERN UKRAINE

Cub Energy Inc. has released results of the drilling of the first well in the Uzhgorod drilling program. The Uzhgorod-101 well 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.

CNG LLC, Cub's 50-per-cent-owned subsidiary, which owns and operates the western Ukraine Uzhgorod licence, obtained valuable subsurface geological and petrophysical data from the U-101 well that will be used to refine the seismic mapping and geo-modelling prior to drilling additional wells on the licence. This upcoming study may result in revising the drilling priorities for the identified prospect inventory. CNG has released the drilling rig while these new data are being analyzed.

The Uzhgorod licence encompasses approximately 75,000 gross acres. The licence adjoins Cub's 100-per-cent-owned producing RK field and is near the producing Ptruksa field located on the Slovakian side of the border. The U-101 well was the first well in a planned three-well drill program for which all costs will be borne 100 per cent by Cub's partner.

Ukraine conflict: Front-line troops begin pullout

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50221995

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).

Image caption
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.

https://www.vermilionenergy.com/files/Vermilion_Energy_-_Corporate_Presentation_ -_Nov_2019_-_WEB.pdf

Awarded two exploration licenses totaling approximately 500,000 gross acres in Ukraine, in a 50/50 partnership with Ukrgazvydobuvannya ("UGV“), a Ukrainian state owned gas producer
► Partnership includes access to technical data, local drilling fleet, and key infrastructure
► Licenses located in one of Europe’s most prolific natural gas basins, the Dnieper-Donets Basin
► Adjacent to several existing multi-TCF gas fields
► Limited application of modern exploration and exploitation technology
► Production sharing agreement has attractive fiscal regime with gas market priced on European imports at Ukrainian hub (TTF premium)
► Modest back-end capital commitment over a 5-year period

Compared To KUB:

http://www.cubenergyinc.com/_resources/corporate-presentation.pdf?v=4

Transcarpathian Sedimentary Basin (West)
▪ 3 licenses 100% and 50% owned by Cub
▪ 108,000 gross acres (70,500 net)

Kremlin Confirms Putin to Take Part in Ukrainian Peace Summit in Paris

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.

Provisions: $588,000
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 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.
