One other reason which shouldn’t go unnoticed is the fact that WTI expires tomorrow and on this mornings prices I reckon that it has lost $8.82 a  barrel on the month which makes the technical side interesting.

14th Onshore licencing round

Yesterday the UK Government announced the 1st tranche of the round issuing 27 onshore blocks with another 132 out for further consultation.

    Another Nigerian scam in the making – Mart Resources.

    After endless extensions, Midwestern oil, a BEE organisation, says it cant raise money to pay C$0.80/sh.

    CALGARY, Alberta – Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX: MMT) (“Mart” or the “Company”) announces that further to its press releases of June 15, 2015, July 16, 2015 and July 27, 2015, under the terms of the Arrangement Agreement (as amended), Midwestern Oil and Gas Company Limited (“Midwestern”) has until August 19, 2015 to complete the Midwestern Financing. However, Mart has been advised by Midwestern that it will not be able to complete the Midwestern Financing to acquire Mart at $0.80 per common share. Mart and Midwestern are continuing discussions regarding an alternative transaction at a lower price per Mart common share. There is no certainty that the discussions with Midwestern will result in an alternative transaction.
