Oil is down by nearly 7 bucks today keeping up the roller coaster ride of recent days. IOG has announced first gas from Phase 1 and Eco Atlantic have done another exciting deal and could be the 'go-to' oil exploration company.
Oil is still cranking up with more action in the Ukraine, from yesterday we look at outage at Serica and IOG having to change their GSA partner. IGas has updated which looks promising and Jadestone deliver Montara.
Oil was down last week on the back of the US/Iran talks but the Russia/Ukraine problem still causes problems. Savannah have signed another GSA in Nigeria and Genel have an update in reserves. IOG have another small delay due to the weather but first gas is not far away...
Yesterday, as I reported, oil joined in the panic about recession with markets all over the place. Today Wall Street has fallen again ahead of the Fed tomorrow but this time oil has bucked the trend and is about 50 cents higher. IOG has updated and despite a few technicals first gas is not far away. Union Jack and Egdon have decided to submit an appeal against the refusal of planning permission by Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) on 1 November 2021, for a side-track drilling operation, associated testing and long-term oil production at the Biscathorpe site. Capricorn update the market as do Trinity and President. Finally I catch up with Block after yesterday's announcement.
Oil is in reasonable nick staying around $80. Chariot has made a significant gas discovery at Anchois and Eco Atlantic has acquired Azinam, with stock. IOG have had a small set back in Southwark and IGas have appointed a new NED to take over as Chairman from Cuth McDowall.
2022 Bucket List.
The prospects remain healthy for oil stocks going into 2022. Malcy looks back and discusses the prospects for the year.
Oil is very quiet at the moment and Brent expiry is putting a dampener on things. Plenty from Savannah who have completed the raise and have published its Admission Document following the Exxon Mobil and Petronas deals. IOG has spudded the Southwark well, Hunting has tidied up its North Sea stuff and Advance updates from the Buffalo project.
Oil has rallied in thin volume ahead of the year end and trade will get thinner as the week goes on. Today I look at Sound as it completes its Phase 1 loan note funding and IOG as they have slight technical problems at Southwark. DEC has completed the sale of the Haynesville undeveloped acreage and Pharos gets the almost final OK in Egypt. And UOG has another success in Egypt.
The 2021 Bucket List results.
