Oil has rallied this morning after a fall yesterday on the EIA report and the API stats which were of no use at all. Today Genel announces receipts from the KRG and Aminex updates on Ruvuma.
Another huge week as WTI rose $4.59 and Brent $3.23 on Opec+ supply constraints and Virus concerns abating. DGOC have had yet more good results, Genel announce 10/- b/d from Sarta a creditable achievement with more to come. Sound has sold acreage in Italy and UOG spudded in Egypt.
Crude oil continues to rise with Texas freezing over and the market a shambles as companies buy power on the market. With vaccinations rising and Covid cases falling 'dramatically' the US is looking up. Genel update on reserves and resources and remain in a strong position, BPC meanwhile update on post P#1 news and plans for Trinidad, Suriname and Uruguay. Block are selling gas in Georgia at last and GKP also have a positive reserves report on Shaikan.
Yesterday oil got caught up in the market sell off and the great retail fight against the horrible hedgies. Underlying stock inventories were good and crude is up again today. Genel has received payments from the KRG for December production at Tawke and...Sarta! Union Jack announce a new technical presentation on West Newton which is very positive and Reabold announce a fund raise of £7.5m. Things are picking up slowly at VOG which I guess is how the new management would like to see it.
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 remains steady with the January Opec+ meeting next week, President Trump signing the Bill and the UK getting a final Brexit deal. Genel has received money in from the KRG for November sales at Taq Taq and Tawke and is looking strong with Sarta crude being invoiced this month. GKP also received money in from the KRG from Shaikan sales. PetroTal are now, having solved the recent problems, flowing crude into the ONP.
The 2021 Bucket List.
Oil has continued its rally and Brent has broken the magic $50 level and has held over a number of sessions. Genel have announced the good news that the KRG override payments are to resume with the January 2021 invoice. Jadestone has said that it is about to close the Lemang PSC acquisition 'within the coming days'. Finally, yesterday Sound announced that it is continuing to negotiate its Euro debt but still needs more support for the 75% needed to cross the line which it is progressing.
Oil remains quiet ahead of tomorrow's Opec+ meeting but good news on the virus vaccine is announced as the UK approve the Pfizer product. Genel announce that first liftings from the Sarta field have been made and Zephyr have received final approvals for the 16-2 well. I interviews Andrew Austin, Chairman of Kistos yesterday, the link is here and at Echo they have news of VAT in Argentina. Finally UOG announce a programme in Egypt.
