Oil has had a good week, if it holds the price right now it will be up 9.6% on the week as signs of production cuts hit the market. Jadestone Energy who impressed me lately stand by to bring the Montara field in Australia back on and IOG are unaffected by the FCA action into London Capital & Finance.
Oil finished up but having been up $3 the end was a disappointment. Rockhopper has a good update this morning and Reabold have had another discovery in the USA. Getech have beaten off the difficult conditions to land a monster order to a leading oil and gas company, well done to them.
The oil price finished the year down 19% in Brent and 25% in WTI terms as world markets worry about China, either its economy or dispute with the USA over tariffs. AMER has announced a substantial discovery with ONGC which will prove very valuable, and the VOG recovery continues with final approvals for the vast Matanda block. Faroe has provided a very strong defence in its valuation document and RockRose has also provided substantial year end numbers. Finally as the oil price remains low, another bid appears in the sector this time for Ophir Energy.
Amerisur and Gulfsands have completed their deal in PUT 14 which looks good from both sides. Ophir are in the last chance saloon in Equatorial Guinea, Cabot are in financial dire straits and I take a look at the latest Faroe defence document.
Sound has a gas discovery in Tendrara which subject to testing will confirm their belief in the TAGI. Faroe has a water wet hole at the Ula prospect in the Norwegian North Sea.
Oil remains weak and will likely do so until the New Year. Today sees Victoria Oil & Gas regaining their contract in Cameroon and now look in a very strong position heading into 2019.
Another bad day for oil as the Fed concerns leave markets across the board taking money off the table. Savannah Petroleum add serious value to their Seven Energy Transaction and Pantheon are buying into Alaska with a raise at 15.25p.
Today Malcy is joined by Andrew Knott, CEO of Savannah Petroleum
Oil rallied yesterday but fell sharply along with markets worldwide after the Fed raised rates again. Faroe has released its response to the DNO bid which ‘substantially undervalues this high growth, full cycle NS business’. Derisory. More good news from President who have closed out the new concessions at Puesto Prado and are getting to work on the assets. Range Resources say that they are paying the coupon on the convertible in shares to keep cash in the business. And from earlier in the week I look at Wentworth Resources who have exited Mozambique and may be one to watch for 2019 on the corporate front.
Oil crashes again, Fed decision today, Reabold spud in California and Angus start tests at Brockham. And from yesterday, Board changes at IOG.
