With oil prices under pressure after news that the US/Sino trade talks at senior level won't happen until after the March 1st deadline and that Libya may come back the price is flat today. Aminex and Zenith have both raised modest amounts of money. SDX has acquired two more potentially very valuable blocks in the Gharb Basin and Genel reported good production from Tawke. Finally Utd Oil & Gas and Prospex reported a positive CPR from Italy.
Oil prices drifted off but remains pretty solid, Opec+ production is falling. The Wressle partners are back submitting yet another planning appeal although what N Lincs council will do is anyone's guess. Savannah Petroleum has signed the Seven Energy Implementation agreement, not long now before completion...Amerisur spuds the second well off the Indico pad and watch an incredible interview with John Wardle on the link today. Genel also proving that there is life at Taq Taq with TT-32 and the horizontal TT-20z due to complete this month. Finally good news at Aminex where the excellent John Bell takes over as Chairman.
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.

A round up on the move of a number of companies including Petrofac trading update, President having further well success and other news from the sector.
An Opec+ agreement was completed but the early excitement soon faded and oil lost ground from Friday's peaks and is back down a dollar this morning. Amerisur look like they have found another very decent discovery at Indico-1 which should be a big boost for them. Coro have done a smart deal with Petronas who have gifted them a huge database which could lead to a PSC in country. Range Resources' CEO has resigned, a new one is probably going to be 2019 at this stage. Aminex have carried out work at Kiliwani North-1 and found gas at the surface. Finally I write on Jadestone for the first time after meeting the management last week, the stock looks very cheap.
On the move today but very good news from AMER and Aminex announce that the farm-out is still progressing well, albeit at African pace. Solo will also benefit and I will be at investor evening tomorrow.m
A flash blog today on the Premier intermission and news from Aminex.
With the oil price all over the place I look at the Opec report, I also look at another excellent discovery from Savannah in Niger and write up my chat with Dr Steve Staley of Upland Resources.

The oil price firms as Iran sanctions start, I discuss the Savannah MOU with Niger Govt, look at the Faroe update and talk about Aminex after my recent meeting with Jay.
