Nice post on LSE… someones summary of JOG. I would agree that ultimately JOG will be 1000p before too many moons pass, it will come in stages and reward those who keep holding and wait :

I get your gist PC01, but not your maths
I work on a conservative value of $7 per barrel. This is an estimated selling price achievable for discovered resources in the ground pre-infrastructure spend, in an area of the NS that’s close to the Forties Pipeline for tie-back purposes (recent evidence is there to support this price - higher actually).
JOG has 18% of Verbier’s minimum of 25m barrels, which is 4.5mmboe. Add to that the 52.5mmboe (net of likely transfer to Equinor) in Buchan & J2 and this gets us to 57mmboe (ie 57 million barrels of oil equivalent -‘oil’ - in simple terms). Today’s addition takes us to 71mmboe.
71mmboe alone (ignoring the value of hundreds of millions of barrels of prospective resources across JOG’s five contiguous licences) gives us a value of $497m - say $500m. I don’t really see a reason to discount the $7pb but, even if one did, it would still leave a value of the discovered resources alone of $250m - or £200m using a $/£ rate of 1.25.
This is £9.16 per share (I think much higher because I wouldn’t discount my $7pb by 50%). Throw in 84p for the rest of what JOG has (not least extremely talented and committed management and staff) as we’re being ultra conservative - and £12m of cash, plus the prospective resources referred to above, and say £10 a share. I’m doubtful the directors would entertain a bid at that level.
One day the penny will drop
