Oil recovered last week's fall and was picked up on Mexican production loss and of course Hurricane Ida. Today I look at JOG on electrification, UJO and Reabold with exciting news from West Newton and Sound who have completed the Schlumberger deal. Also Hurricane announce an offer for the bonds, Lamprell update on recapitalisation and Eco Atlantic spud the Sapote-1 well and Zenith sign an agreement in Nigeria.
Oil remains strong after a good set of API stats, today will show whether last week's EIA numbers were abnormal. More news from Zephyr and Challenger update. Predator update across the board and have a board change while UOG are selling out of the UK North Sea. Finally Hurricane update on the Aoka Mizu, meanwhile gossips are talking about another corporate raider for the Godalming based explorer.
Oil is flat, little to say after EIA report was bullish and bearish...Challenger update on Saffron-2 which is in line with expectations and hopefully producing soon whilst Pharos update on Vietnam and a quiet period in Egypt. Finally Hurricane have a monthly update.
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 has drifted today after last week hitting fresh highs and natural gas had a great week too. The Hurricane board have lost their case in the High Court as they attempt to rob the equity holders of 95% of their value. Petrofac has reported a trading update in line with expectations but only when the CFO case is dropped will they start to shift up a gear. Eco Atlantic has done a great deal with a raise into the bargain in a deal that brings exciting near term drilling in Guyana. And Zephyr has signed a contract with Cyclone drilling for the upcoming State 16-2LN-CC well.
Oil was a little better after a good set of EIA stats but has drifted a bit today. Zephyr are powering away at the 16-2LN-CC well with latest permissions, Challenger reports again from Saffron and San Leon ups the investment in OML 18 infrastructure. Block has spudded the WR-B1 well in Georgia and yesterday Hurricane said that the judgement has been reserved.
Oil is quiet, yesterday it was good inventory stats offset by more worries on inflation. Predator announce that the rig is on its way to Guercif, Eco has been further delayed to the Tullow problems, Hurricane have 3 announcements but shareholders should vote to save their equity. I interviewed Steve Bowler CEO og IGas where he talked me through geothermal and hydrogen. Zephyr are also on the move with more wells on stream and earning money.
Oil is quiet, the reporting agencies are out this week and the EIA were somewhat bearish in their comments. They don't generally take into account the politics of the situation and have based their views on supply and demand data. A good result from the Rhum R-3 well for Serica and Longboat announce a raise of £35m and two of three deals to get them started. Pharos update on Egypt and Vietnam but no comment yet on the farm-out whilst Hurricane update on production as they will until 5th July. Decklar has acquired the opportunity to participate in the Asaramatoru field in Nigeria, located in OML 11. I speak to Zephyr CEO, Colin Harrington who tells me about all things Paradox and their new environmental brief and Lekoil Ltd worry about their CEO...
Oil will be up strongly on the week and economic stats are pretty good. Challenger updates on the Saffron-2 well and Predator has raised £1.5m at 15p. VOG also announce positive news across the board and Hurricane walk away from the Aoka Mizu contract when it expires in the hope of getting a cheaper deal, if not that's it, all over...
