Oil was up just under 5 bucks last week, quiet today for Martin Luther King day. A great update from PetroTal who are breaking all production numbers and \angus who have had at least 6 intentions of interest in their assets. Reabold and Union Jack announced initial results of analysis of the West Newton Extended Well Test programme carried out in the second half of 2021 by RPS Group and the results of analysis carried out on fluids produced to surface. Finally Hurricane are starting to look like the good thing that they were.
Oil bounces as people think Omicron isnt as bad as first thought, its like flu apparently...Just Waiting for the Royal Dutch moniker to be removed from Shell, Genel are in a legal fight with the KRG about Bina Bawi and Miran and Hurricane are buying back the bonds. Echo have updated the market quietly, IGas have joined an industry group whilst President announce the Atome details.
Oil continues to rise, today the Opec and EIA reports show increased demand and reduced supplies which should have been expected all year. Russia have been hosting an Energy week at which both Putin and Novak made positive comments about the price of oil, $100, and the availability of gas when the Nordstream 2 pipeline comes in. Kosmos has bought stakes in Jubilee and TEN in Kenya from Oxy and i feature an interview with Andrew Austin at Kistos. Yesterday saw another excellent update from PetroTal who are at last on the move. I also look at the West Newton result and its implications for Union Jack Oil and Reabold Resources.
Oil reached the top of the trading range and boiled over as is its wont. Today I look at Predator after the webcast yesterday and IOG have good news from the Blythe well and first gas on the horizon and at these prices...PetroTal have also had a really positive update from the Bretana field and are looking set very fair. Hurricane have updated but I think maybe should have shouted more from the treetops and yesterday Serica blew away the targets and are looking to have the Midas touch. Union Jack has added a new presentation and video on the website.
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.
