Oil continues to rise, Brent is $45 this afternoon as the vaccine, Opec+, Asian demand data and even the inventory stats are creating a perfect storm, even G Sachs are helping by cutting their oil price forecasts...I look at Far who have sold Senegal WI today and Jadestone who are looking good after an encounter with Inpex in arbitration. Finally we mourn the early loss of our friend Graham Cowdrey at the age of 56. RIP
WTI $40.83 -5c, Brent $42.62 -31c, Diff -$1.79 -26c, NG $2.80 +2c Oil price A very modest fall yesterday, today it's a small rise but no massive direction from the ...
Oil remains mixed, with tilting downside as virus numbers continue to rise. Genel has successfully completed the $300m bond issue and also had August money from the KRG. San Leon continue to show that its model is really working, buy this share and the yield might be 30%... BPC actually has a date to drill Perseverance#1 at Christmas and Jadestone has pushed back the Maari deal due to the General Election and Pantheon has some numbers from Talitha.
Oil rallied off Tuesday's lows but the API stats and the STEO were mainly downbeat. Serica announces results and looks in an incredibly strong position with £101m of cash and rising gas prices. Jadestone also has interims which show that despite reducing guidance for this year the outlook is more than promising.
Oil fell at the end of last week as Aramco started to cut prices to its Asian customers as demand falters in the region. It's Labor Day today so the US is on holiday but elsewhere oil had dropped around 70 cents. Chariot has announced yet another significant upgrade at Anchois on the Lixus licence in Morocco, it gets better and better. Jadestone has rearranged its offtake agreement saving c.20% in the process and i3 has completed the Gain deal which looks pretty interesting. Pantheon are now double handed with applications in for both Alkaid and Talitha in Alaska and I speak with Deltic looking at their 32nd round awards.
Oil rallied on better than expected (sic) inventory stats but have fallen today as world markets fall on virus numbers and awful 2Q results, as expected though...
Oil is up ahead of the Independence Day weekend as equities also head into the break on a high after good Non-Farm Payroll numbers. I notice that Jadestone is going to arbitration in Singapore after being jilted by Inpex...
Oil ended the week slightly down on more virus worries but markets are better today as is oil. I look at the interesting Sound deal in Morocco and the good news from Echo Energy. Solo has raised a potential $5m and updated on cost strategy whilst DGO has had its redetermination satisfactorily. Finally Jadestone looks like it has made another cracking acquisition.
Oil declined yesterday with US/Sino tensions rising again. Genel has received money from the KRG but for shareholders more importantly go X 10 cents divvi today. Ascent Resources are coming up with plans for Slovenia whilst news from Cuba will also be upcoming as the company look at new areas. Finally Jadestone rarely, if ever disappoints and whilst this year will be one to forget the company are actually looking pretty good via capex and opex savings and the future looking bright.
Oil is ending the week down around $7 a barrel despite what might be three up days, what a roller coaster. Today I look at the Wentworth results which show a company in a great position, long term gas contracts, cash in the balance sheet and no debt with the ability to pay a divvi into the bargain. This high quality management team is delivering and will probably do some more. SDX tell the market that the Sobhi well should reward their faith and be onstream next year. Jadestone yesterday also produced results very much in line with expectations, this is a great company which will continue to beat the odds. And not much to add from Premier as CEO Tony Durrant goes out on live TV last night but kept his cards pretty close to his chest.
