With the month and the quarter ending at the weekend window dressing is the order of the day and there is no news so volumes will be low. Lot’s of news from Savannah where they are updating on the Niger EPS with news about first oil 1Q 2019 and ramping up through the year. Chariot are about to spud prospect S and the oil world watches. Interims from Getech show that management action is working.
Inventory builds kept oil down yesterday as gasoline built and demand fell away after the driving season. Eco Atlantic have been approval to drill on PEL 30, the ‘Cooper’ block and hope to drill on the Osprey prospect late next year. Plexus have won an order from Gazprom for TRT mudline suspension systems, a good start in a huge market.
The oil price remains on an upward trajectory, mainly due to Iran although the President doesnt see it that way… I look at figures from President, unsurprisingly excellent and cover news yesterday from Amerisur, Rose and Zenith. Plus links to Podcast and an interview with Andrew Knott, CEO of Savannah Petroleum.
