After yesterday's disaster oil has rallied today but not enough methinks. Today i look at the Hurricane results which are incredibly good after the Lancaster EPS has delivered up with guidance but what a time to do so. Genel follow up yesterday's report with results that show how resilient they are at $30 with a flexible capex structure and able to pay a big divvi. Rockhopper , like others are keeping their heads down and still talking to Navitas whilst Jadestone just had a lucky black cat moment...
Oil down again as Covid-19 seems to be a very random visitor. Reabold has issued an upbeat statement about its US operations which are doing very well whilst the highly experienced Graham Lyon joins Sound as Exec Chairman. I attended the Jadestone Capital Markets event yesterday and was most impressed as I thought I would be, full of quality. And Egdon Resources confirm that they have hit the guidance with production of 178 b/d.
Happy Thanksgiving and whilst today and Black Friday means very little trading in oil markets until Monday it is a time of the year fraught with risk especially with the Opec+ meeting next week. I welcome Longboat Energy to the market with its former Faroe management and talk about Jadestone, also with a very high quality team. With Bahamas Petroleum preparing for 2020 drilling they are starting the necessary steps for local investors and the environmental needs.
Oil ended up last week after mainly positive news from trade talks and Barkindo...Today i look at the Jadestone acquisition which looks very handy and also at Touchstone who have made a great discovery at their Coho-1 well in the Ortoire field in Trinidad. I also take a good look at one of my favourites, having recently met the PetroTal management I am even more confident in my forecasts.
Oil is all over the place with America and China playing diplomatic tennis and now appearing to be making friends again. Today, DGO buy a small but important stake in gas gathering systems and Eco Atlantic have spudded Joe-1. Reabold have potentially very exciting news from Romania and Solo Oil are about to update their corporate presentation. Jadestone trim the guidance, mainly for the weather to be fair but still look in good nick whilst Providence and Lansdowne have extended their backstop.
Oil drifts further despite more stock draws, the EIA will be important later. Today I comment on Rockhopper who have a well result for United and IOG who have spudded Harvey at last. EOG have converted LO 16/20 into FEL 4/19 but still have no farm-out. Reabold have spudded in Romania and I catch up from yesterday with Far Limited where CNOOC has acquired 55.5% of Svenska's interest in Guinea-Bissau. Also from yesterday another upbeat statement from President, Cairn sells half of its stake in Nova and Jadestone get the final all clear for Montara.
A topsy turvey week for oil as US trade wars now with Mexico spook markets and inventory figures show products building. Savannah Petroleum have moved a stage closer to completing the seven Energy deal with the UERL buy-out being closed and good progress elsewhere. I catch up with the Jadestone Energy figures and they look to be progressing very well. UOG have a new CFO but with much experience and i talk to Doc Holiday about oil stocks.

Oil rallies this morning as four ships are attacked off Abu Dhabi, two of them Saudi tankers. Hurricane announce that hydrocarbons have been introduced to the Aoka Mizu and that the start up phase has commenced which is the next step to first oil. Columbus has been granted a licence for their key Bonasse licence in the S W peninsula, any find here will 'transform' the company. And Jadestone has completed work on the Stag oilfield successfully and the rig is moving away, production is expected in a few days. Finally a link to a short interview I did with IGTV on the oil price.
Oil cracked a bit on Friday but it could have been avoided, the market can supply any shortfall but will be getting tighter through this quarter. Coro and Empyrean have agreed their drilling programme for Duyung and will drill an exploration and appraisal well in the autumn. Jadestone has a HOA for gas sales with Petrovietnam and Reabold is moving ahead in California.
