"- cash flow per year of 0.18 / share (2 times current sp of 0.365)"
Sorry...the current sp of 0.365 is 2 times trailing annual cash flow of 0.18 / share; though I'm sure everyone knew what I meant.

Operational review and update
In 2013, Hawk drilled 14 (12.3 net) wells, resulting in 12 (10.6 net) oil wells in its core area of western Saskatchewan, one (0.7 net) standing gas well in central Alberta, and one (1.0 net) dry and abandoned well in east-central Alberta. The drilling program in 2013 was concentrated on vertical development drilling in western Saskatchewan, where the corporation drilled six (4.8 net) successful vertical oil wells in the Silverdale area. Hawk also drilled five (5.0 net) successful vertical oil wells in the Rusk Lake, Lashburn, Dulwich, Eureka and Neilburg areas, all in western Saskatchewan.
In the first quarter of 2014, Hawk followed up its successful drilling in the Neilburg area with two (2.0 net) additional successful vertical oil wells at Neilburg, as well as a successful vertical well in the Lloydminster area of east-central Alberta, directly offsetting its production in the Silverdale area of western Saskatchewan. Hawk expects production for the first quarter of 2014 to average approximately 700 barrels of oil equivalent per day based on field estimates.
Hawk achieved record cash flow from operations in 2013 of approximately $6.2-million, compared with $5.6-million for 2012. The corporation generated an operating netback of $32.94 per barrel of oil equivalent in 2013, which is comparable with the 2012 operating netback of $32.80, as increased pricing in 2013 was offset by a slight increase in production expenses.
Revenue for the year increased by 28 per cent to $15.4-million in 2013, from $12.0-million in 2012, as a result of increased annual production and slightly improved pricing in 2013. Hawk's annual production increased 28 per cent to 637 barrels of oil equivalent per day, with oil and liquids production contributing 613 barrels per day, or 96 per cent of total annual production, while the corporation's average realized oil price increased 1 per cent in 2013, to average $68 per barrel, compared with $67.27 per barrel in 2012.
At Dec. 31, 2013, Hawk had $4.9-million drawn on its existing $12-million credit facility. The corporation continues to maintain a solid balance sheet with net debt and working capital deficit of approximately $7.6-million at Dec. 31, 2013, which equates to a net debt to annual cash flow from operations of 1.2:1.
The corporation has set a $10-million capital budget for 2014 that will focus on development opportunities in western Saskatchewan and east-central Alberta targeting heavy crude oil. Hawk plans to drill four (3.7 net) vertical wells targeting heavy oil mainly in western Saskatchewan in the second quarter of 2014, after spring breakup and once surface conditions allow access, which the company expects to be in June, 2014. In addition, the corporation expects to drill one (1.0 net) vertical well targeting heavy oil in the Eureka area of western Saskatchewan, which is a follow-up to a well drilled by Hawk in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Western Canadian Select (WCS) pricing for heavy oil, to date in 2014, has improved and has been less volatile than in the first quarter of 2013. For the first quarter of 2014, the WCS differential to West Texas Intermediate (WTI) averaged $23.13 (U.S.) per barrel, compared with $31.96 (U.S.) per barrel for the first quarter of 2013, and $32.20 (U.S.) per barrel in the fourth quarter of 2013. Additionally, a weaker Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar has increased the Canadian dollar oil price that Hawk has received to date in 2014. Although the WCS differential has improved to date in 2014, the corporation expects this differential to remain volatile. Hawk has entered into both WTI commodity contracts and WCS differential contracts for the remainder of 2014, to provide downside oil price protection to ensure the $10-million capital budget for 2014 can be financing mainly through cash flow from operations with a limited increase to the corporation's credit facility.
