With the US shut for Labor Day as expected markets were thin and oil rose, Opec+ didn't acknowledge that and are charting their own course. Chariot have done another JV with Total Eren, this time in Mauritius and Echo have results. Capricorn also have figures but whether the Tullow deal goes ahead is still somewhat up for debate.
Oil will be modestly down on the week after continued drift and delay from the EU about taking oil & gas from Russia. Today Enercom names and shames those international refiners still taking Russian crude which are mainly Indian. President announce numbers from Argentina which continue to show solid progress. Empyrean is raising funds to to after Topaz and I get back to Capricorn following its AGM statement.
Yesterday, as I reported, oil joined in the panic about recession with markets all over the place. Today Wall Street has fallen again ahead of the Fed tomorrow but this time oil has bucked the trend and is about 50 cents higher. IOG has updated and despite a few technicals first gas is not far away. Union Jack and Egdon have decided to submit an appeal against the refusal of planning permission by Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) on 1 November 2021, for a side-track drilling operation, associated testing and long-term oil production at the Biscathorpe site. Capricorn update the market as do Trinity and President. Finally I catch up with Block after yesterday's announcement.
