Very quiet on the oil front yesterday, today it is drifting with markets coming off yesterday's highs.
Oil and equities remain subdued whilst the population stays at home, literally. Predator and Columbus have successfully injected CO2 in Trinidad which could be most exciting for the future. JOG are doing a great job at the Greater Buchan Area having acquired Equinor's interest fora modest sum. They are putting a great team together here. DGO are trading in line with market expectations ahead of results in March.
Oil was quiet due to Thanksgiving and will remain so today. I comment on Gulfsands who have raised money to run them for another exciting two years. Longboat was a damp squib yesterday but I expect much more. In the and finally the Gooners fire Dick Emery, could they reach out to Poch by any chance?
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.
Today I talk about management changes at Sound Energy as its metamorphosis continues and also Coro Energy as it announces another successful well. Echo Energy has completed its deal and now looks forward to Tapi Aike whilst Eco Atlantic has fallen due to heavy oil, unnecessarily in my view. At Wentworth former CEO Eskil Jersing has been given the El Bow as potential acquisitions failed to materialise. There is a Longboat coming over the horizon laden with former Faroe management looking for funding to go back and do it all again. And Talon Petroleum is also queuing up to invest more in the North Sea. Finally a slate of video interviews by myself and VSA CEO Andrew Monk recorded at Africa Oil Week.
