    For those interested,
    below I have pasted a copy of a letter that I sent to a friend for query last night, it contains relevant data for quick reference at the base of the post, as well as self-explanatory (spec.) reward tables.
    The intention of this post is to simply assist fellow members in short-cutting fundamental & spec. research with CUE & to highlight variable rewards. This may be by no means necessarily accurate so please do your own research, &/or adjust reward tables accordingly, (nb- my personal adjustment of %21.4 of upper case reward that reflects my personal tolerances/appetite).
    Although there may be considerable delay to any response of mine, would be interested in valid critique/conversation.

    Andalisa, a short note to you to say many thanks,(fanks!), for your initial calcs in the early stages of the market embrace for this variable, (plus %86 in three weeks from that time of notification), & your attempt to bring that awareness up to fellow members.
    It was appreciated by no doubt many, well done to standing your ground, & if you're not aware, you at least have my grattitude & respect ...

    Warm regards to all & good luck!

    Good morning ##,
    As discussed, I have done some quick calculations based on the variable value impact to CUE in relation to STO's Jeruk 2 discovery, allowing for the possibility that preliminary testing results may lead to an indication, (perceived or otherwise), that the field may contain in excess of 169mmboe (target) ...
    The catalyst for this e-mail being the 'rife rumours' of the discovery being possibly up to 300% larger than expected, ie 510mmboe, & the request for serious corrections on any flawed speculative summation/deductions that may be evident in my reasoning ...
    I will speak to you in the morning to discuss further ...

    *Rumor is rife that Santos will announce further details on the Jeruk 2
    well in Indonesia (Santos 50 pct) tomorrow - and that it will be over a
    half billion barrels rather than the 170 million barrels that were being
    suggested earlier. STO up 20c to $8.36 on 1.67m shares. CUE is at 20.5c,
    steady on the day on 4.2m shares - has come from 7c after the Jeruk
    announcement. Had declined to participate in drilling Jeruk 2 but can buy
    back into its 15 pct holding on payment of the usual penalties.'


    Approx. 333,943,755 fpo @ 20.5cps = market capitalisation of A$68,458,470.-
    Related security to consider, CUEVA.NZ.

    Prior to 18/10/04 - 333,943,755 @ 8cps = m/c of approx. A$26,715,500.-
    (STO ann relating to Jeruk 2 discovery).

    STO's Jeruk 2 impact can thus far be assumed to be directly responsible for the market's recent speculative re-rating of CUE's present m/c value being 256.25% of m/c prior to 18/10/04, (A$41.743m increase).

    nb- CUE recent 17 day's total volume = 241,202,000.
    Today's volume was 4,219,000 vs (*)14,811,000 or a 71.52% reduction on (*)prior 16 day average daily volume, (since discovery announcement) ...
    Traders muddy-ing waters still from left-over Fri/Mon rally so I take all volume/price action as not indicative to whether or not an announcement of this magnitude is expected.
    To be noted though was the reaction from Macquaries,(?), after the initial announcement from STO on the 18th at 1129hrs, & the timing of one minute from release to absorb the information & find leverage not in STO but CUE, (@1130hrs) resulting in the following rally ...

    Query, any precedent that you're aware of for immediate takeover of a corelated entity after a substantial increase in asset recognition becomes legally declared to the market? ...

    nb- Also any substantial increase in flow rates or field potential will see quick re-evaluations & upgrades from both 'Phat Prophets' & that broker from Singapore as well as interest from every other man & his dog in Australia so on the reward table listed below, might be prudent for early positioning despite any mild spec. premium ...

    nb- {i}Spec. cost of re-entry for CUE @ A$33.4m equals less 10cps from reward table.
    {ii}Spec. cost of re-entry @ A$66.8m equals less 20cps from reward table.
    {ii}Spec. cost of re-entry @ A100m equals less 29.95cps from reward table.

    nb- Personal momentum trade exit @ %21.4 of upper reward table, investment parcel requires re-assessment upon technical data.

    East Java oil discovery: Jeruk 2 ST-2
    Santos Limited advises that oil and gas have flowed from its Jeruk 2 ST-2 well
    being drilled in the Sampang Production Sharing Contract, offshore East Java.
    An open-hole Drill Stem Test (DST) was performed in the well during Saturday
    16th and Sunday 17th of October 2004. The test was performed over an 18
    metre interval from 5,134m to 5,152m measured depth.
    Preliminary results from the DST are:
    • A flow rate of 7,488 barrels of oil (1,190 kilolitres) per day was recorded
    through a 1/2 inch (12.7 millimetre) surface choke accompanied by 2.21
    million cubic feet (62.6 thousand cubic metres) per day of gas during a
    5 1/2 hour flow period.
    • The flow rate was constrained by the throughput capacity of the surface
    production test facilities.
    • A flowing tubing head pressure of 2,762 pounds per square inch
    (19,043 kilopascals) was recorded.
    Following completion of the flow test the well was shut-in for measurement of
    pressure build-up, after which the testing equipment will be removed from the
    hole. Jeruk 2 will then be deepened in order to ascertain the full extent of the
    hydrocarbon column. Logs will be run when the well has reached total depth.

    • The environmental plan and Plan of Development for the Oyong field have been
    approved by the Indonesian authorities.
    • Oyong reserves have increased following an independent assessment.
    • Early oil development in third quarter 2005 is now planned for Oyong.
    • Jeruk -2 tests oil subsequent to the end of the quarter.

    Sampang PSC - Madura Strait, East Java, Indonesia (15% Interest)
    Operator: Santos
    Oyong Background
    The Oyong field was discovered in mid 2001 and has been delineated by a total of
    three wells.
    The oil and gas discovery is in 45 metres of water approximately 8 kilometres south
    of Madura Island and has a gas column of approximately 120 metres, underlain by a
    38 metre oil column.
    On July 19, 2003 a Gas Sales Agreement was signed with PT Indonesia Power for the
    entire gas reserves of the Oyong field. The sale is denominated in US dollars.
    A reserves audit by DeGolyer and MacNaughton, an international expert, has resulted
    in an increase to previously assessed technically proven and probable oil reserves.
    The reserves (recoverable volumes) are characterized as technical reserves pending
    final joint venture approval of full development. The DeGolyer and MacNaughton
    reserves are:
    Proven (1P) Proven + Probable (2P) Proven + Probable
    + Possible (3P)
    Oil in Place 80 99 131
    Recoverable 6.4 9.9 15.7
    Gas (including solution gas)
    Gas in place 143 169 183
    Recoverable 107 135 147
    Oyong Development
    The field environmental plan and plan of development have been approved by
    Indonesian authorities.
    As a result of the increase in Oyong field recoverable oil and the current high crude oil
    prices the joint venture is modifying the approved Oyong development plan to bring
    forward first oil production to third quarter 2005.
    The planned new development will consist of a simple well head structure formed by
    triangular braced surface well conductors which will extend above the sea surface.
    Development wells will be drilled through and between the conductors.
    Corp31Sept04.docC:\SharedData\Documents\2004-05\Finance\Quarterly Reports\Corp31Sept04.doc 3
    Oil and gas will be processed on a nearby moored barge. Oil will be exported by
    shuttle tanker and gas will be sent by pipeline to the P.T. Indonesia electricity
    generating station at Grati, East Java.
    First gas is expected around mid 2006. Solution gas associated with the early oil
    production will be reinjected until gas production begins to Grati.
    Approval of Indonesian authorities will be required to revise the field plan of
    development and the environmental management plan.
    In addition, recent analysis of the Mundu Formation reservoir rock properties and
    consequent revised dynamic reservoir simulation modelling, have indicated that the
    peak oil production rate could reach 20,000 barrels of oil per day for a six well oil
    development and should average 9,000 barrels of oil per day for the first two years of
    A joint venture decision on development is expected prior to year end 2004.
    Oyong Funding
    The revised plan of development requires reduced capital expenditure with Cue's 15%
    share being reduced from US$19 million to US$14.5 million.
    The requirement for securitization of gas sales payments should also be reduced as the
    increased oil revenue due to higher proven reserves and increased oil prices are
    expected to substantially cover the cost of development. Negotiations on securitizing
    gas payments under the Gas Sales Agreement are continuing.

    Cue's co joint venturer and operator Santos Ltd has announced that the Jeruk -2 well
    on the Jeruk oil discovery in the Sampang PSC, offshore East Java, Indonesia, has
    flowed 7,488 barrels of oil per day on test.
    Cue had elected to not participate in the drilling of both the Jeruk -1 and Jeruk -2
    wells and accordingly these wells were drilled on a sole risk basis by Santos
    (Sampang) Pty Ltd.
    However, Cue is entitled to reinstate its right to participate in any future
    development of the Jeruk discovery subject to the payment its 15% share of the cost
    of the two wells and the payment of a sole risk premium.
    Under the provisions of the Joint Operating Agreement for the Sampang PSC, which
    governs joint venture conduct with respect to the Jeruk -1 and -2 sole risk wells and
    the Jeruk discovery, Cue can reinstate its rights in the discovery by;
    1. Paying its 15% share of the costs of the wells and,
    2. paying a premium of 10 times its 15% share of the cost of the Jeruk -1 well
    and 5 times its 15% share of the costs of the Jeruk -2 well. The premium
    payable can be satisfied by Cue foregoing its share of production from a
    Jeruk development until the value of Cue's share of gross well head
    production reaches the total premium payable by Cue. Thereafter, Cue will
    receive its full 15% share of production.
    Cue's option to reinstate its right to participate in the development of the Jeruk
    discovery is triggered at the time of presentation to Cue of the formal plan of
    development for the field.
    Cue continues to retain its 15% equity in the remaining contract area outside the area
    of the Jeruk discovery. A large 3D seismic survey over a substantial portion of the
    block is planned to begin in late 2004. The survey is designed to follow up on the
    Jeruk discovery and to investigate several other prospects which are candidates for
    2005 exploration drilling.
