Barclays Capital described Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO) as being “back on track”, although its price target for the oiler reduced somewhat.

“We view Premier as an attractive option for investors seeking exposure to further improvement in medium-term oil prices,” Barclays analyst James Hosie said in a note.

He added: “Using our base oil price assumptions we forecast Premier can generate free cash flow of around $300m in 2018E, bringing its leverage ratio back below management's target of 2.5x ahead of schedule.”

Hosie forecasts Premier Oil’s cash flow rising to around US$470mln in 2019.

“Investors can anticipate a debt refinancing and possibly the reintroduction of shareholder returns alongside disciplined investment in opportunities to create further value,” Hosie added.
