Oil price, Aminex, Scirocco, Zephyr. And finally…

Oil will be flat on the week after a reasonable day yesterday and a modest rise so far today. Still no signs of a stimulus but maybe its a Nov 4th rally...Aminex has announced the completion of the Ruvuma farm-out with all that entails and Scirocco have noted it with all that it means to them. Finally from yesterday further good news for Zephyr as the get the first Government payment for the Paradox well and have hired a very experienced drilling manager.

Oil price, Sound, Solo, Aminex, Pantheon.

Oil fell yesterday on well known supply problems, Libya, Norway and Delta to name but three. Today its a little better but I'm not sure the inventory numbers will help much this week unless they are really good. Sound has had its Sidi Moktar permits extended by 24 months without any changes to its committed work programme. Aminex has announced that the Tanzanian Government has given approval for the farm-out and whilst the company are sensibly waiting for completion before commenting. It's also good news for Solo as they can continue to pursue their gas strategy. Finally another huge estimate from Pantheon, if this lot comes in it will burn down many barns...

Oil price, Bahamas, PetroTal, Predator, Aminex, Echo.

Oil fell as Libya started to up production and Covid cases increased worldwide. The API stats were better than expected with a small crude draw and a build in gasoline and draw in distillates. Another RNS from BPC shows that much is going on, PetroTal have restarted from the Bretana Field and Predator report interims. Aminex are clinging on in Tanzania with a last extension of the longstop date and Echo have interims today. VOG and others yet to come...

Oil price, Aminex, Rockhopper, President

The oil price is up again as backwardation rears its pretty head...Aminex takes a huge step towards Farm-out in Tanzania with the Tax Clearance Certificate headed to the Ministry. Rockhopper have made significant cuts in the corporate overheads of c.30% on 2019 led by executive directors pay cuts. And in Argentina the Government has fixed the price that refiners pay producers for crude oil at $45 which with decent demand from the ending of the virus lock-down should be beneficial.

Oil price, Aminex, DGO

Oil continues to rally and with June WTO expiry tomorrow all is calm... I look at Aminex after watching an interview with new CEO Robert Ambrose and speak to him myself this morning. DGO achieve their Main Market listing justifying the great progress they have made and with a 13% yield it still looks very cheap.

Oil price, JOG, Aminex, GMS, Getech

Another big up day for oil as big economies start to get back to work across the world thus boosting demand numbers. At the same time word from Saudi Arabia to those who listen is that right now the spigots are set to 6m b/d. I look at a great statement from JOG where the excitement of the lead in the development of the GBA is obvious and the future looks bright. Also Aminex take another step towards the formal farm-out with the completion of a loan from ARA to pay the CGT bill to the TRA. A quick word on Gulf Marine Services, not solutions, apologies where Seafox announce a purchase of shares at 10p, putting a ceiling of 10p or 9c on the potential bid as they commit to no increase in the terms. Finally, a little late I am look at the Getech announcement of last week, they appear to be handling the virus and the oil price pretty well.

Oil price, RockRose, Ascent, Far, Aminex, Rockhopper

Oil is rallying today as we head into May, it is however only very early days with regard to this process. RockRose has an AGM statement and costs continue to fall, the company remains in a strong position. Ascent has signed up more potential acreage in Cuba where opportunities look very interesting and has raised £212,500 as part of the programme. Far continues to manage Sangomar where without its debt finance it is aiming to farm-down all or part of its acreage. Aminex also comments that with its substantial free carry it can make considerable progress in Tanzania and in Pan-Africa. Finally Rockhopper announce that the HOT with Navitas re the Falklands is still in play.
