A small rally and no real change after the EIA report or the API stats. Gulfsands remind us about Syria, Longboat has received some awards, and Orcadia has disposed of Crinan and Dandy after a good resources report at Pilot. Hurricane update, Deltic say Shell are testing at Pensacola and EOG have an update.
Oil is falling as traders level off their books ahead of the long Thanksgiving Holiday. Jadestone sign off the remaining 10% interest in the Lemang production sharing contract onshore Indonesia and Deltic spud Pensacola. Europa have released themselves from offshore Morocco having found no partners and Prospex are going great guns in Italy.
Oil rose, mainly on the weaker greenback. Union Jack publish an exciting CPR on Wressle and Deltic raise £15m via placing and an Open Offer on top ahead of the Pensacola spud in the autumn and Jadestone are shutting-in Montara while it is being repaired.
Oil fell back with the differential widening again. Today Diversified make a decommissioning acquisition and UOG update as do Coro. From yesterday I catch up with VOG, Block and Deltic.
Oil is down again as Beijing looks to be joining the Covid lockdowns and Russia is still selling enough oil to fight...Today Union Jack again updates on Wressle revenues with $5m taken since August. And finals from Deltic but a delay on Pensacola until 'late Q3'.
Oil was down last week but has rallied today, the Iran talks may have stuttered somewhat. Predator have given a good operating round up and there is much excitement to come and Deltic say that Shell has started work on Pensacola ahead of drilling a well in a year's time.
Oil has now gained nearly $3.50 on the week, the election result has taken risk off and whatever result occurs it looks like extreme policies are off limits. Helium One have solved their unquoted problem and will merge with tiny Attis and raise £5m, Scirocco comment on the process. And Deltic say that Shell remain committed to Pensacola and despite an extension still plan to drill 4Q 2021.
WTI $40.83 -5c, Brent $42.62 -31c, Diff -$1.79 -26c, NG $2.80 +2c Oil price A very modest fall yesterday, today it's a small rise but no massive direction from the ...
Oil fell at the end of last week as Aramco started to cut prices to its Asian customers as demand falters in the region. It's Labor Day today so the US is on holiday but elsewhere oil had dropped around 70 cents. Chariot has announced yet another significant upgrade at Anchois on the Lixus licence in Morocco, it gets better and better. Jadestone has rearranged its offtake agreement saving c.20% in the process and i3 has completed the Gain deal which looks pretty interesting. Pantheon are now double handed with applications in for both Alkaid and Talitha in Alaska and I speak with Deltic looking at their 32nd round awards.
Oil is up another $1.60 or so today and holding above key support levels, particularly $42 from WTI. Chariot say that CEO Larry Bottomley has stepped down with NED and founder Adonis Pouroulis taking over as Acting CEO. Deltic have announced that largest shareholder IPGL with 16.8% has backed them in the 'possible' bid battle with Reabold Resources. And Cairn are staying positive about winning their arbitration case in India with a decision expected 'after the end of the summer' but which summer?
