Oil gained but gave back most of the gains at the end of the day. Union Jack and Reabold both flag the West Newton CPR due next week and Rockhopper completes the Navitas farm-in. Longboat look like they might have a discovery at Oswig but need a side-track and DST to confirm preliminary numbers that are better than pre-drill estimates. Finally, IGas and Egdon have both written thank you letters to that nice Mr Rees-Mogg for his relaxation of shale regulations.
Oil is sticking at around $90 for Brent, the Fed upped by 75bp and inventory stats were mixed. Jersey Oil & Gas looks in a very strong position with suitors for GBA of a high quality and quantity. Longboat are preparing for Velocette and Getech have upped the ante at Shoreham.
Oil rallied further on disputes and a mixed inventory report. IGas chose interim day to sack CEO Steve Bowler and Sound yesterday announced further legal grief in Morocco. With UOG spudding in Egypt and Reabold getting another market knee in the groin Longboat has added to the mainly miserable day.
Oil had a big bounce yesterday in thin volume and was also up on the week as well. The usual reasons are plain to see, Wall Street shed over 1,000 points after the hawkish comments by the Fed Chief Jerome Powell. Today results from Arrow follow good CPR news last week and Longboat spuds Copernicus. Finally Predator CEO Paul Griffiths issues a press release on Irish energy polocy.
Oil rose last week but July was another down month, demand falling as the recession arrives is deemed responsible. Today Scirocco update on Tanzania, probably more interesting to Aminex and Wentworth...Eco Atlantic have a big update but its a very exciting outlook, whilst Longboat spud Oswig and Prospex update on El Romeral. Finally I had the opportunity to interview John Bell of Gulfsands last week and the detail is in the blog today.
CEO of Longboat Energy, Helge Hammer, joins Malcolm Graham-Wood.
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 was up on the week for all the reasons we pointed to, even Opec+ saying the would produce more didn't slow it down. Today we have payments for Genel, Savannah has signed a GSA with TransAfam Power with Accugas and Longboat have a duster at Cambozola. Jadestone just put out 2021 results and Serica have an upbeat operational update while Prospex move on in Italy.
Genel announce updated KRG payments and Scirocco have a quarterly update on EAG and Ruvuma. Longboat have added two exciting gas-weighted wells to their Norwegian portfolio.
Oil was down last week and is now off another 3 bucks today. Ineos boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe make a very good case for fraccing in the Sunday Telegraph. DEC have published their sustainability report and Genel detail KRG sales and payments. Angus have done a small raise today, wise given the bidding timetable has overrun a bit. Afentra updates on Sonangol and Coro has signed up on a new deal in Vietnam. Longboat have spudded Cambozola it's one of the biggest gas prospects around. Lamprell, I just don't know what is going on, it seems like good progress in wind but oil & gas going well is up for sale. UOG has confirmed its sale in Italy to Prospex and is now well financed but needs to spend the money.
