Oil remains flat as one might expect on Labor Day, traditionally the end of the summer driving season. I look at Genel with its latest payments from the KRG as well as newly licensed Challenger. Years of patient waiting for Falcon in Australia appears to have brought success at Beetaloo and a guidance warning from UOG as they find too much water at ASH. Finally Advance are nearly ready for Buffalo-10 and Serica are making out like bandits as the Rhum well comes in very well indeed.
The oil price, along with many markets has taken a beating after Covid numbers rising in China appear to be putting the mockers on economic growth. I wouldn't however bet against the oil price too much, Opec+ have a strong ability to close off the production if needed as we saw last year. More good news from Zephyr from Paradox Basin and San Leon has wisely held off taking a repayment until operational readiness. Finally Falcon Oil & Gas remains hard at work in the Beetaloo.
Oil rallied, unworried about the Fed and a strong dollar and a little concerned about the new hard-line President in Iran. Petro Matad have results but more importantly show how much important progress is being made on the exploitation licence on Block XX. And Falcon starts its drilling season in Australia with much promising activity.
Oil is drifting this morning after further virus fears re-emerged in China. HitecVision is to bid for Exxon's Central and northern North Sea interests and Union Jack and Reabold update positively on West Newton. Pharos has raised $11.7m to get going on drilling operations in Egypt and Falcon has continued success at Kyalla.
Oil is already rallying and its a busy blog with Genel updating the market, and PetroTal completing an agreement with Petroperu as well as Kosmos making a discovery in the GoM. Also Remus comment on their current targets whilst Falcon have confirmed a discovery in Australia. Finally I interviewed Colin Harrington of Zephyr, surely a ten bagger in a short time...?
Oil continues to rise Brent is only $1.30 away from the magic $50 level. Kistos arrives on the Aim market today, former RockRose founder Andrew Austin returns with his new vehicle which looks most exciting. Falcon have announced a technical difficulty with its Kyalla well but tell me that it shouldnt be a reason to panic just yet. Finally Pantheon have hired a rig to drill the billion barrel Talitha prospect, ooh err...
Oil has rallied today after a bad day yesterday when virus worries hit markets very hard. Today there is some modest relief but don't hold your breath. IGas interims show that good management counts, President continue to succeed in workovers and the drilling programme is underway. Coro figures are irrelevant but the increase in resources at Mako is substantial whilst Longboat are patiently stalking their targets. Africa Energy raise more than expected for drilling with Total in South Africa and Falcon update the market from the Beetaloo.
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.
Touchstone raises £9m, Reabold/UJO slightly behind at West Newton, Falcon has more success in the NT and BPC take on £8m more debt.
Oil drifted in the end last week, Iran shooting down a civil airline flight somewhat dented the passion against the Great Satan's. Sound Energy has continued to work though the EIA and sundry diligence for its work in Morocco and PetroTal Corp has yet again over-delivered against market expectations. Finally, Falcon Oil & Gas has had a minor operational delay which will be sorted by Origin sidetracking the well.
