I have been fortunate enough to have contracted SBM's services for many years through 3 different oil and gas companies.
SBM's knowledge and advice was instrumental in affecting our decision to sell two of these companies at the very top of the NG cycle. I would strongly recommend SBM to any senior executive in the Canadian oil and gas community who wants to get a clear picture of commodity trends.
-- Bruce Murray, Chairman & CEO - Passport Energy Ltd.
SBM's research is very thorough and their interpretations are well thought out and backed up with data. I am 100% confident of the integrity and quality of SBM's work. Highly recommended.
-- John Milford, VP Exploration - Charger Energy Corp.
SBM provided consulting services to both Seaview Energy Inc. as well as a former company (Ketch Energy Inc) and the insight they provided assisted us in timing with regards to our oil and gas hedging portfolios. I feel we obtained great value for their services as we made multi-millions on our hedging program over the years. I would recommend their insightful, unbiased information to anyone who wants to gain an edge on their competition with regards to oil and natural gas commodity cycles.
-- Stephanie Bunch, CA, VP Finance & CFO
SBM (Duncan & Gil) recognized the positive & negative factors effecting oil & natural gas supply & demand well ahead of any other group I have seen. That skill set combined with their ability to articulate the outcome on commodity pricing certainly is a strategic benefit to anyone in the oil & natural gas industry in addition to anyone interested in investment in that industry. 5 Star rating!
-- James Welykochy P. Geo, MBA - Capital Markets Consultant, Director at LGX Oil Gas Inc.
SBM Inc. provided effective guidance which had significant impact on our Company's risk management decisions. SBM's unique analytical approach and insight into the non-fundamental aspect of commodity markets sets them apart from all others. Combined with an intimate knowledge of the commodity markets, SBM's timely updates and communication with clients added significant value as a trusted and valued consultant. I look forward to working with both Duncan and Gil again in the future.

We have used SBM's services for many years at both Provident Energy Trust and now Charger Energy Corp.

Their monthly analysis of a multitude of economic indicators and trends is extremely helpful in helping develop our strategic plans and also managing our commodity hedging programs. I would highly recommend their services.

Throughout three different companies and over a period of several years I have retained Duncan and his partner Gil Dawson to provide accurate, detailed, and timely advice concerning the ever changing forces which affect energy prices. Their approach is unique and their analysis is capable of helping energy management teams make timely decisions regarding acquisitions, dispositions, hedging and capital structure.

I was reading the front page of the Herald [Nov. 09] and the provincial Finance Minister was saying: the fluctuations have been wild in natural gas. There's no economist that's been able to explain it adequately.
Somebody has to lead her by the ear to one of your presentations as it seems to me you guys figured it out quite some time ago!
