Gabriel Khoo Cost cut and mechanisation lowered production cost We estimate SOP’s 9M19 all-in cost of production for its upstream ops at MYR1,665/t (-8% YoY). We understand the lower YoY cost was due to cost cutting measures undertaken and introduction of more mechanisation to counter rising wage bills. As for fertiliser, we understand SOP has applied ~90% of its full-year fertiliser requirement in 9M19 (9M18: ~85%).

By mib

Finally cost cut measure taken by sop...very positive sign

enning22 refer news report above,President Jokowi said ,if cpo price don't go up, he will put up B100 diessel program, that is very encouraging.
29/11/2019 8:33 PM
Up_down Indonesia is an energy imported country. To increase Biodiesel from B30 to B40 would reduce 2.5 million ton of CPO in a year. Indonesia is expected to produce more than 54 million ton CPO this year. The annual savings from imported fossil oil costs more than USD 1 billion. Indonesia is actually making a right move to stabilized CPO price.

enning22 10月中旬以来,棕榈油火了,涨停、新高轮番上演,市场炒作热情空前高涨。棕油上涨的主要动力来自于需求增加,供应减少。其中,需求增加的重点在于生物柴油使用的增加。在生物柴油的方面,对印尼B30可能缺乏补贴支撑运行的担忧引发了昨日午后棕榈油的跳水,但随后印尼能源部回应给市场吃下了一颗定心丸。






11月7日,分析师Dorab Mistry称,2020年印尼棕榈油产量料增加100万吨,至4400万吨,马来西亚产量或下降100万吨至1930万吨;

11月21日,分析师James Fry称,印马两大主产国2020年产量增幅会微乎其微,随着生物柴油需求增加,市场可能出现供应缺口;

29/11/2019 8:45 PM
Up_down Indonesia implemented B30 is only part of the factor boosting CPO price higher. In fact, CPO price moves in tandem with soy oil price.
29/11/2019 9:07 PM
enning22 true,sometime it works this way, sometime they go independently, the reason is they compete for the same consumers market, and both products carry over stock/inventory is high,If either one ,or both,stock /inventory are low , then all go they own way.
29/11/2019 9:25 PM
enning22 @up_down , please get your data accurate, indonesia production forecast to be 45million ton,not 54 million as you mentioned, B30 would take up according to estimate would be 8 to 9 million tonnes, currently program of B20 consumed 5-6 million tonnes.

Up_down Enning22. You can compile the monthly production figures issued by Indonesia authority GAPKI then you would know the actual volume rather than the data from news. This year the latest production volume shows 39.5 millions ton for 9 monthis until Sep 19. My estimation of 54 million tons for the whole year.

Up_down The estimate increasing consumption from B20 to B30 is about 2.5 to 3.0 million ton per annual.

29/11/2019 10:06 PM

29/11/2019 10:08 PM
Up_down Indonesia CPO production is rather stunning. Annual production increase from 19.4 million ton in 2009 to 47.4 million ton for year 2018. Malaysia production remains about 20 million ton per annual for last. 10 years.
29/11/2019 10:12 PM
enning22 unfortunately i only reach https://gapki.id/ page and infomation is not complete,you estimate could be on the high side,
29/11/2019 10:14 PM
Up_down Ok. I reduce my estimation to 52 million ton for year 2019. Here’s the production announcement for 9 months.

29/11/2019 10:21 PM
enning22 yes ,that's more realistic.----so we have 52m(total supply) -9m(b30) -6m(indonesia food consumption) -15m (India total consumption)=22m for the rest of the world.;the glut of oil is very much reduced.cpo price of 2600-2700 is quite ok .
29/11/2019 10:35 PM
Up_down As said before price of CPO is largely dependent on soy oil price. If soy bean production low enough then the price of CPO may go higher. US soy bean production is projected 20% lower in year 2019 comparing with 2018.
29/11/2019 10:38 PM
enning22 china experienced severe "swine fever"nation wide;so pigs were slaughtered, so little supply of pig animal oil , they would import more palm oil to make up the gap.

Gabriel Khoo Result Review:
Sarawak Oil Palms Results above expectations

HOLD | RM 2.98 ▲

SOP’s 3Q19 PATAMI increased 74% to RM30.9m due mainly to margin improvement in plantation segment on higher production and improved palm products sold. On qoq basis, PBT increased more than 30 times to RM43.2m as higher production and transacted products volume helped to mitigate a weak ASP realised of PK products.

3Q19 saw both FFB and CPO production increased by 29% to 395K MT and 123K MT respectively, with PK production rising 36% to 27k MT. On the other hand, ASP realised of palm oil increased marginally by 1% to RM2,077/MT while palm kernel dropped 3% RM1,394/MT

9M19 profit was above ours and consensus’ estimates. Nonetheless, during the period, PBT was down by 38% as revenue slipped 20% to RM2.05bn. The decline in ASP realised and lower palm products volume, aided by weak other operating income of RM10.5m (-65% yoy) and lower margin from property segment contributed to the lower results.

Maintain HOLD with new TP of RM2.98 (RM1.98 previously) based on target P/B of 0.8x and 2-years average BV/share of RM3.72. We have revised our FY19 and FY20 earnings forecast higher to RM56.3m and RM79.1m respectively from RM20.7m and RM48.4m previously, as we adjusted our assumption on costs of sales and operating expenses lower.

enning22 Reuters reported that the implementation of Indonesia’s B30 biodiesel plan would reduce the country’s fossil fuel consumption by 165,000 barrels per day. A government official said that the 9.6mil KL (8.4mil tonnes) of fatty acid methyl ester to be used in B30 in year 2020F is equivalent to 165,000 barrels per day. Also, the government will start preparing research for B30 after officially launching B30 in January 2020.

Gabriel Khoo Indonesia aims to start making green diesel in 2022
DEC 4, 2019 08:28 AM
[JAKARTA] Indonesia plans to start producing green diesel from palm oil in 2022, with output estimated at 3.7 million kilolitres, a senior official in the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry said on Tuesday.

Indonesia, the world's largest palm oil producer, wants to develop green diesel, a second generation biodiesel. It currently uses biodiesel made from fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) from palm oil, which is blended with fossil fuel.

Green diesel can be made by refining fossil crude oil and palm derivatives together in a single process, or refining palm oil in dedicated refineries.

FX Sutijastoto, director general of renewable energy at the ministry, told a parliamentary hearing his estimate of 2022 production was based a on business plan by Indonesia's state energy company PT Pertamina, although further studies were needed.

Pertamina is planning to develop refineries which can produce diesel from palm oil. Mr Sutijastoto said there seven companies were interested in building refineries to produce green diesel, including Wilmar International, a Singapore-based agribusiness firm.

By 2024, Indonesia should be able to increase production to 6.1 million kilolitres, according to ministry data presented to Parliament.

From January, the country is set to bring in the mandatory use of B30 fuel, a biodiesel with 30 per cent FAME blend. It would be expanded from the current 20 per cent bio-content.

The B30 programme has sparked palm price rally in recent months due to concerns that Indonesia will have less palm oil to export.

Indonesia is expected to consume 10.1 million kilolitres of FAME in 2022, ministry data showed on Tuesday.

President Joko Widodo sees the biodiesel programme as a way of offsetting a current account deficit caused by large energy imports, while also supporting demand for palm oil, one of Indonesia's main commodity exports.

Mr Joko has asked for further expansion of the biodiesel programme and ordered studies on mixing palm-based fuel with jet fuel.

05/12/2019 11:26 AM
kaleemtheman The earnings improvement came despite an 18% drop in quarterly revenue to RM716.31 million from RM870.34 million, due to lower palm products' average realised prices and lower volume of palm products sold.
For the first nine months of FY19, its net profit fell 25% to RM40.93 million from RM54.33 million last year, as revenue fell 20% to RM2.05 billion from RM2.55 billion.
