Oil price, Sound, Echo, Zenith, Faroe/Cairn, Premier, Wentworth, Enteq And finally…

Oil prices rally on talk of 1.4m b/d cuts, Sound are at TD in Tendrara and Echo have an upbeat operational update. Zenith figures only the start if things go well this quarter and at Faroe and Cairn they have a success at Agar but Cairn has a duster at Ekland. Premier are operationally in fine form again with much to come, Catcher the star but Tolmount and Mexico looking exciting with appraisals upcoming. Wentworth are still being paid which is good but man cannot live on Mnazi Bay alone, over at Enteq things are improving for Martin Perry.

Oil price, Savannah, Eco Atlantic, Frontera, Serica, Afren And finally…

Crude prices are still subdued as inventories build and production exceeds demand, for the time being. Savannah are close to the Seven Energy deal completing which has significantly enhanced their position in Nigeria. Talking of completing, Eco Atlantic has completed its farm-out to Total in Guyana and are now in a position of considerable strength. Frontera have confirmed that they are still talking to another industry major and Serica has received OGA approval for the Columbus FDP. Afren crooks locked up and also a link to this week’s podcast.

Oil price, President, Frontera, Faroe, And finally…

With less than a week to go until sanctions apply to Iranian oil it looks like the market is supplying enough, even for this quarter and all eyes should be on what will be a weaker start to next year. Another very positive RNS from President where the numbers are really coming through after highly successful drilling programmes this year. At Frontera the major oil company they are working with is Baker Hughes who should be a significant help as they develop Block 12 in Georgia. Finally, Faroe are increasing and extending their RBL to be ‘fully fit for purpose’ and be ready to repel boarders as they plan for continued growth although it does look like another addition to the defence document.
