keeping conservative view on the daily production of oil and international oil price, we expect POL to report an EPS of PkR 46.50 for FY06

As per the latest printed accounts, POL is currently producing approximately 7000 barrels per day for 1Q FY06 as compared to 4926 barrels per day for the corresponding period last year showing the growth of 43% YoY basis. The impressive increase in production coupled with the jump in international oil prices, helped POL to post ever higher NPAT. With a view that the international oil prices would move in the band of $50 - $55 coupled with the POL to maintain it’s daily production not going below 6800 barrels per day, we expect the company to post an EPS of Rs. 46.50.

International Oil Scenario

Pakistan Oil Fields

Oil prices are expected to remain around $55- $60 mark

Oil prices in about a years time has almost doubled this is due to the fact that oil consumption across the world accelerated by far higher pace than the new reserves discovered. The falling production from the oil producing countries, mainly in the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea, is supposed to be main reason for the high prices of oil. The upsurge in demand is mainly attributed to the fast growing economies of China and India. Other factors that have been part of this steep rise in international oil prices are the political instability in Middle East and the hurricanes like Katrina and Emma hitting the Gulf of Mexico. Though it looks like as if this steep rise in oil prices has already seen its peak and is now settling down at $55 mark. Also if the oil prices will continue to make new highs the global economic growth will slow down consequently resulting in lower demand for oil. This argument can also be backed by the fact that rising trend in oil prices has resulted in increased demand for alternative fuel sources like natural gas, and this will lower the demand for oil.

Valuation and Recommendation: POL is trading on the lower side of the PE band of the share for the last two years. Based on the DCF valuation and expectation for the handsome growth in earnings for the years to come, we recommend a strong buy for long-term investors and buy on dips for short-term investors.
