Oil price

Traders reported a quiet day in the market waiting for reports from the main agencies this week. The EIA popped up with a forecast that US shale production will fall in December for the 8th consecutive month, hardly a surprise there. The Opec Secretary General when speaking in Qatar made it clear that his organisation feel that all else being equal the market will be ‘more balanced next year’, so that’s alright then.

Rockhopper

Rockhopper has announced results from the Guendalina side-track well which has completed successfully. All target horizons within the Pliocene were gas bearing and at two deeper levels gas was encountered and perforated. Production has now resumed at 440/- scm/d which is 88/- scm/d net to RKH, or the equivalent of 580 barrels of oil a day. This is 190% above previous levels and a significant success for the company, anticipated revenues of $7m are expected in 2016. Elsewhere, Civita the 100% owned onshore gas development will commence production by the end of the year. The company say that this ‘demonstrates real progress in the building of its Greater Mediterranean portfolio’ and I feel that it goes a long way to justifying the MOG acquisition and keeps RKH in a strong position in an increasing number of geographies.
