A flash blog, good news from Zephyr with permits awarded and will now start drilling. Sound have to yet again submit to the Moroccan Tax authorities and Hurricane have received a derisory bid and are now up for sale.
Oil fell yesterday but is up ahead of the Opec meeting. Genel announce its new CEO and I catch up on things I didnt get in on Friday such as Coro, Hurricane and Reabold
Oil will likely be up on the week as the agencies report differing views, not often that the IEA are more positive than Opec but they are restating their numbers. I look at Jadestone who have decided to stop production at Montara while they fix it and Eco Atlantic are on the move with the rig mobilised for Gazania-1. Also I look at President with Argentinian numbers, and catch up with Hurricane and Prospex from yesterday.
Brent is opening up a gap over WTI slowing refining in the US after demand for gasoline has slowed. Kistos and Serica have carried on with their battle and Union Jack has yet more good news from Wressle.

Oil fell on the Fed confirming a 75bp rise with Swiss and UK central banks today and the ECB being what only they can be...Lots of company news today, PetroTal have a good sales update, Zephyr are investing better than expected cash flow, Rockhopper raise went very well, Harbour are buying back $200m, Longboat update in full detail, Hurricane monthly shows more cash build up and President have a bare bones update.
Oil is all over the place but solid enough. IOG update on production where Saturn Banks is half back on, Hurricane relinquish the GWA and Tullow offer a merger with Capricorn. Jadestone is going net zero and I try again on Gulfsands...
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...?
