The oil price continues to fall with markets as the Fed starts to mention the end of the Taper. Today I look at Helium One who have commenced drilling at Tai-2 in Tanzania and also look at some announcements that have happened whilst I was away earlier this week. DEC completed the Tanos acquisition, I'm sure the next deal isn't far away and Scirocco has a clearer line of sight to selling its Ruvuma stake whilst also having a shout with HE1. SDX had a dry hole at South Disouq but CEO Mark Reid remains positive about the area and over at Jadestone they have updated on guidance and updated on operations.
After all the price moves last week oil ended only 60 odd cents down at the end, given what happened after the Opec+ meeting had broken up that wasnt a bad result. San Leon continue their consolidation in Nigeria and Predator has appointed a leading Moroccan expert as COO. Coro have started a move into solar in Vietnam which has potential to grow swiftly and Helium One has seen gas bubble but have to side-track the well. SDX also has a trading update.
Oil is up another 50 odd cents today so the squeeze continues, with bad weather across the USA oil and natural gas production is still sharply down as is refining capacity. PetroTal has announced its 2021 capital budget
