Malcolm Graham-Wood is joined by Peter Levine, Chairman & CEO of President Energy.
A rally in crude as China starts to ‘stabilise’ its economy. For RBD and Upland a disappointment as the Wick exploration well was dry and from yesterday a comment on Ophir and Touchstone.
A very late blog today, apologies for many meetings and lousy internet opportunities, will follow up tomorrow.
Today Malcy talks about the following stocks: Faroe Petroleum (FPM), Ophir Energy (OPHR), SDX Energy (SDX), President Energy (PPC), Amerisur Resources (AMER) and Premier Oil (PMO)
The nine day rally in the oil price ended on Friday not before chalking up some decent gains. SDX has announced an update from Egypt this morning where news from South Ramadan looks positive but needs testing to establish flow characteristics, at South Disouq post development agreement work is progressing fast to enable first production this half. Ophir have rejected the 48.5p ‘bid’ from PT Medco which technically is not a bid yet. The Sunday Times suggests that Premier might raise equity of $1.5bn to buy Chevron assets, what are they smoking?
9 days up for crude and with another 50 cents this morning the best part of 20% off the bottom. Rose have announced some additional acreage in the Paradox Basin adding to their handy portfolio and Range have found an Aussie NED and are re-quoted this morning. Wentworth had a fantastic 4Q and are knocking the lights out in Tanzania, what’s next for newish CEO Eskil Jersing? And Zenith raise money in Vienna as part of the non-equity dilutive funding and Jadestone re-start Montara. A good con call and new presentation from Savannah on the website today.
Another good day yesterday in the oil market although some has been given back this morning after inventory figures disappointed. Premier come in with another cracking operational statement and have cut the debt by more than expected. Petro Matad announce some of their plans for 2019 drilling and Angus Energy receives a very odd letter in the post. Finally Aminex have beefed up the board and its advisors, hopefully a sign of things to come.
The oil price remains firm and this morning is challenging important levels. President has again given a blockbuster statement with more to come this year whilst SOCO’s update was good, i like the Egypt acquisition. Echo are on site fraccing in Argentina and Columbus are making steady progress towards their Latin American targets. Finally Faroe has gone as DNO up the offer and buy up shares in the market, it’s the market’s view but so short term it’s almost indefensible…
Malcy talks about the following stocks: Sound Energy (SOU), Amerisur Resources (AMER), Faroe Petroleum (FPM), Ophir Resources (OPHR), Aminex (AEX), Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG), Pantheon Resources (PANR), Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and Rose Petoleum (ROSE)
More gains for oil as production falls and stocks begin to erode at Cushing. IOG have added the Goddard discovery to their SNS core project which makes it even more interesting and I cover Zenith that i couldnt fit in yesterday.
