Oil is under pressure as China battles with Covid, so far losing the battle despite the 'magic weapon' of zero tolerance. Southern Energy has reported a good set of figures with much excitement to come. Kistos is pursuing a scheme of arrangement in order to restructure and be able to pay out to shareholders. A new CEO on the way at Petrofac and a positive update from Coro in Italy.
A follow-up note on Kistos after the recent Capital Markets Event and before tomorrow's budget which will likely up the ante for energy companies. Also a catch up on COPL figures from yesterday,
Oil fell yesterday and again today as China data and Covid data disappoint. Today Kistos are in court hoping it will approve the capital reduction leading to potential dividend payments. A red letter day for TXP who achieve first gas at Coho, with much to come and Scirocco are repaying the Prolific facility. Finally Jadestone has agreed an insurance claim following a well workover.
Half year numbers from UJO and how good they are, they get many box ticks from me. Results also from Sound which show very positive progress and Kistos who are continuing to perform in such a short time. Chariot has signed a Pipeline Tie-In Agreement with ONHYM.
Oil continues to drift, even after today's better than expected US CPI numbers markets rallied but not the oil price. Maybe as it's the monthly reporting time that is responsible but I'm convinced that underlying the bulls will out. Last night both Serica and Kistos walked away from hostile activity and will remain independent. Today sees the return of Afentra to the market following suspension after the Excellent deals in Angola and it looks to be very positive indeed and are seriously going places. Finally I caught up with Gran Tierra after figures on Monday.
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. Hurricane has unsurprisingly paid off the debt and it's all change at President with the set up of Green House Capital starting with Lithium and Echo has updated the market.
Kistos and Serica, initial RNS and some early thoughts.
Oil rallied on Friday and at the end of the week but the damage done on Tuesday was enough to see WTI down $3.64 on the week and Brent off $4.61. Today sees the return of San Leon after a long suspension whilst Kistos complete the GLA deal. Touchstone beef up their board and Serica have spudded the North Eigg well.
Oil rallied sharply on Chinese data and a shortage of product inventory whilst Kistos has provided a positive AGM statement. Chariot show a big oversubscription in their Open Offer and Southern Energy Corp brings in a very decent well indeed.
Oil fell sharply yesterday as the EU dithered on sanctions...Kistos has results better than expectations and with a very positive cash flow and debt payoff potential, PetroTal has ended the dock protests. SDX has a discovery at SD-5X at South Disouq and Block has an operational update and pre-warns on fund raising whilst I cover news from Getech from yesterday.
