Last week oil prices edged up only by a few cents and the battle remains between Geo-politics and stuttering GDP numbers. Today, Echo Energy announce further progress in seismic data processing in Argentina with drilling still planned for 4Q of this year. Amerisur have a regular update on operations with the Sol-1 well confirmed as a ‘modest discovery’ and Indico-2 next to be drilled. Production remains in line with guidance. VOG confirm last weeks’ rumours of a huge deal selling gas to Aksa Energy and Reabold have exciting wells to drill in west Brentwood. Eco Atlantic are cheered by Qatar Petroleum farming into Guyana and Tullow asking for an extension to the Jethro drilling programme. Good news also for the Wressle oil field participants..
Oil ended up firmly last week as inventories fell, the Middle East flared up and Tropical Storm Barry hit the GoM. Today Lekoil deliver an update, fairly news-lite and Egdon and Union Jack find oil at Biscathorpe which had seemed dry.
Another bad day for oil as markets remain weak and in risk-off stance. Saudi OM pledges to continue working for market stability and cuts his own production again. IGas get planning for Scampton waterflood, Egdon raise $1.98m but only 72% endorse the raise, VOG settle with Weatherfords and I cover CERP results from yesterday.
Today Malcy discusses Echo Energy (ECHO), Rose Petroleum (ROSE), Pantheon Resources (PANR), Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG), Reabold Resources (RBD), Amerisur Resources (AMER), SDX Energy (SDX), Falcon Oil & Gas (FOG), Block Energy (BLOE) and Egdon Resources (EDR)
Oil firm as the Saudis hit back at the Houthi rebels. SDX reduce guidance and lose CEO Paul Welch, at Falcon they raise a bit to top up for this year and next year existing carry. All in line at Cairn with no change in guidance or plans in development and exploration. Earlier this week Wentworth updated and all is going well, yesterday Block Energy raised £12m, a solid achievement given how fast they have moved and at Egdon they raised £2.17m. Empyrean has seen gas clouds at Topaz and Jade which CNOOC say is good news and Lisa Mitchell moves from Lekoil to San Leon…
Another good day for oil with supply shortages across the world and stocks tightening, a good time for what might be a $100bn bond issue… A great set of figures from Amerisur this morning with exploration success, production and revenues growing and free cash flow funding an impressive forward drilling programme. Egdon has increased production, the CPR at Resolution looks good and Springs Road is also potentially very exciting, maybe after all these years it is set to deliver…
Malcy talks about the following stocks: Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG), Igas Energy (IGAS), Egdon Resources (EDR), Amerisur Resources (AMER), Rockrose Energy (RRE), Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) and Reabold Resources (RBD)
After a mixed and apparently turbulent week in the oil market the price ended up although less that a dollar. Right now WTI has rallied by 60 cents and Brent by 72c. Today Coro and Empyrean get their Plan of Development for the Mako field offshore Indonesia, good for monetising the gas. IGas and Egdon have announced that at Springs Road ‘significant gas indications were observed’, could this see the East Midlands start to become our own Dallas? Reabold bounce back from Friday’s duster to find in excess of 60m of pay at the Monroe Swell which will be very valuable whilst Cairn now have to wait until the end of the year at best to find out arbitration news.
Oil fell at the end of last week although most pointers were, and still are, upwards. Jersey Oil & Gas have spudded the Verbier appraisal well which hopefully add a great deal to the partners knowledge of the block. Reabold have also spudded, theirs is in California at Monroe Swell, a name like that just has to come in. If it does it will pay back very quickly. Plexus have won a contract and the shares were up 30%…Egdon gave an upbeat update, Springs Road might well be a lifeline…And Pantheon, having delivered bad news from Winx on Friday said it was all ok today…
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.
