Quebec is moving forward. They are having fabulous wells. They have higher net backs because of the lack of need for transportation. On a little bit of weakness the stock is one to keep an eye on.

The Québec government has finally put the ability for the “go forward” strategy on the Utica Shale to happen. Their partner is Repsol. The wells coming out of the Utica in the US are fabulous. He likes the company and their team. His problem is that if the government gives the green light to go ahead as fast as they can, does this company have the wherewithal to fund it. If it backs off below $0.60, you are just paying for Western Canada and you get Québec for free again.

They had a really, really big discovery in Québec shale, and the potential was quite impressive. Then the province stepped in with a moratorium to limit exploration, so the stock got crushed. Recently, the government changed their mind. It is now much more interesting than it was before. A longer-term play.

Shale gas Montreal-Quebec City corridor. Very good partner in Talisman (TLM-T), who is also the operator. They know procedures that have to be done but farmers are nervous and water tables are important so there has to be education at the local level and they've done a very good job. Market doesn't know when they are going to get a window go-ahead.

Play on shale gas in Quebec. It has been 2 years on not knowing what is going to happen. Trading around its worth of $1, which is its cash and Alberta properties, so basically Quebec is free. If you feel Quebec will happen, it's a $1.50-$2 stock. Pretty much dead money.

Waiting to see how the environmental rules will be resolved and the land tenure access. Won’t be any activity for the next quarter or two. There is an economic advantage to go ahead with this. We know there is gas there and that Talisman (TLM-T), the operator, is supportive of the project. Stock is cheap but it may drift for the next couple of months. Potentially worth $2 to $3 in 2012.

Fallen below its 200-day moving average and right now is in kind of a limbo. The positive thing is that there is a descending triangle so if they can get out of the wedge it would be wonderful. Anything above $3.50 would be a breakout but you don't want to see it fall below $2.40-$2.50 as it would mean the stock is going lower and again.

You don’t have to be bullish on Nat Gas to be bullish on a particular company. Their first horizontal well with Talisman was very successful. If they replicate this success, you don’t need a $6-$8 natural gas price for it to be economic. 4 horizontal well results out in August. It’s still a risky investment but if they are successful they will sell at a premium.

Utica shale is probably the most difficult geologically wide because there has been a lot of Teutonic action there. This is typically not very good for shale gas. Last couple of wells have been good and it is close to market for good transportation. Thinks the play will take longer than expected. Early days right now.
