Oil is falling due to Chinese demand, Chariot has made a good raise to develop Anchois and push on with the power business. Pharos AGM statement was good and with Vietnam kicking in later this year should be good. Getech are solidly ahead, Hurricane looks cheap as chips and could and should be taken over from here, just imagine what a wealthy parent would do with it...?
Oil fell after the announcement of the SPR draw down and has eased another dollar this morning. Today Petrofac have announced a major contract in Australia, Getech has expanded its Maptium platform offering and Rockhopper has had the Hot with harbour and Navitas extended by a month.
After yesterdays rise oil is down around a dollar this morning falling stocks contributed to yesterdays big rally. Today I see a good set of results and very good progress from Sound and Cath Norman has stepped down as CEO at Far. Pharos have received Ministerial approval for their farm-out inn Egypt which sets them fair for Vietnam growth.
Oil rallies today as it looks like the nuclear talks maybe off. Genel receive money from the KRG, Touchstone get an extension at Ortoire and Getech head for the Highlands. Finally Empyrean is starting to look exciting with imminent drilling at Jade.
Oil continues to rise, President updates on 2 successful wells and new Argentina boss and Getech report upbeat contract wins.
Oil remains strong and unlikely to change much under current circumstances. Orcadian has done a smart farm-out deal on the Carra prospect and this management team are worth a look at. Longboat announce that the Rødhette exploration well is a discovery but 'at the lower end of pre-drill expectations'. Getech continue to move fast and have made a meaningful signing whilst UOG update on production.
First day of the month and quarter and with an Opec+ on Monday there are no prizes for bravery in oil markets. Union Jack and Reabold are disappointed about the planning decision at West Newton but an appeal is probably likely. Scirocco completes its acquisition Echo has restructured its loan. San Leon note production news from Decklar and I cover results from the 15 sets yesterday including President and Getech as well as results from Zephyr with an interview with CEO Colin Harrington and from Savannah and an interview with CEO Andrew Knott.
Oil is already making back the losses when yesterday people wrote off Opec, something to do very carefully and not by me, at the moment anyway. Petro Matad has received its exploitation licence in Block XX and Coro seems to have done a very smart deal with ion. Hurricane has completed the Lincoln obligation well and Getech is looking at Hydrogen. Finally it seems that some Block shareholders are not looking at their own board but others, not a wise move if you ask me.
With the month, quarter and interim ending tonight and the Opec+ meeting tomorrow books are flat ahead of the US Independence holiday weekend. Last night the API said that crude drew 8.2m barrels. VOG update on trading, Union Jack and Egdon announce a short delay at Wressle and Egdon has raise money this morning. Zephyr share their thoughts on Paradox, its bigger than you think...Hurricane heeded the High Court and the NED's have all resigned, the shares rose 25% on the back of that and Crystal Amber are vindicated. Positive news from Advance and Getech make up the pack...
Oil is better again after markets pay more attention to US data than Indian virus numbers. The API stats were good across the board so today's EIA numbers will be key. Afenta launches today, Paul McDade's vehicle for investing in West Africa, it starts very well financed with an outstanding board and a blank canvas. And Getech talk about their latest deal in green hydrogen.
