Oil is quiet and should end the week decently up. PetroTal has announced 3Q figures which have been hit by the unrest but will pick up before long. Block make some beneficial changes to the Schlumberger deal and Pantheon have raise some £23m in the absence, so far, of a farm-out deal.
Oil rose sharply last week as the markets went to risk-on after the vaccine news and potentially more positive news from Opec+ and maybe even Brexit...Block announce operational progress in Georgia and more success at new exploration well EVN-x1 is announced by President this morning. Helium One confirms stories about a £6m raise and amalgamation with Attis Oil & Gas Limited and Proposed Admission to AIM.
Oil is drifting, yesterday with positive inventory numbers the price should have risen but the virus and physical exports from Libya put the bear side eloquently. Today Block Energy has responded to a shareholder group by having an operational and corporate update. Yesterday Angus set in play a debt facility raise and a modest equity funding to stand alongside it, also Reabold had interims. Finally the Kerogen representatives on the Hurricane board have left, what that may mean is anybody's guess but not being on the board gives them more scope than otherwise....
Oil has rallied for two days now despite mixed messages from the market. In company news IGas is making an interesting move into geothermal heat by taking over GT Energy for shares. Premier are now being forced to speak to other market players which is all they need at the moment. Finally another TR-1 from Block Energy makes one think that the pantomime season isn't far away...He's behind you........
Oil remains very quiet, a modest warning from the Opec meeting to keep production under control. The West Newton partners announce that the operator has submitted screening requests for two new potential hydrocarbon well sites with substantial potential. And Premier has put together an imaginative and bold refinancing offer in order to finally see the end to the debt pile it has been labouring under.
Oil drifted on inventory news but has rallied a bit this morning as Opec committees meet. PetroTal notes that it has completed the recent placing and adds detail to the structure of the Petroperu deal. Block Energy say that Georgia is opening up and that the EPF has arrived from Canada. Reabold also say that Romania is also easing down and the mobilisation of the testing rig is under way.
Oil remains precarious as traders watch the physical market and try to figure what USO are up to...I catch up on news yesterday from Reabold and Union Jack from West Newton as well as President Energy. I also take a look at Block Energy where selling from Georgia Oil & Gas may be creating opportunities...
Oil fell yesterday but rallied today ahead of the Opec+ meeting on Thursday, Premier with 88Energy have failed in their attempt to find anything commercial. Block Energy has hunkered down in Georgia and will for the time being correctly ensure they get the Schlumberger deal over the line.
Oil staged a modest rally, given back this morning, as the US Senate passes the Stimulus Bill whilst Secretary Pompeo talks to MbS about global energy security. I look at RockRose who have not put results out but instead a bullish operations update, also iog who have actually announced results today. Block look like they have done a cracking deal in Georgia with the fleeing Schlumberger. Finally Falcon succumb to COVID-19 as drilling stops at Kyalla.
Oil remains weak due to the Corona Virus and SDX update on success in Morocco and plans for Egypt. From yesterday, comments about Block Energy who's report was overdue and the market is uncertain about size of the success.
