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.
The Opec+ meeting starts shortly and the market is expecting a deal, if it doesn't happen there could be a 50% retracement in half an hour. I write today about Chariot which has an upbeat statement out about Morocco and costs which are being cut again. Also IGas which is looking good in this market with onshore, conventional oil to carry the company, well hedged as well. Finally a few words about Pantheon after my words on Premier went down badly...
Oil prices fell again yesterday as risk-off is the order of the day. Amerisur has announced that it is having a strategic review after receipt of interest in all or part of its portfolio. Petro Matad has spudded the Heron well which is either an exploration or an appraisal well depending on your stance. Finally Pantheon has raised £10.7m at 18p for work on their Alaskan assets.
Oil prices are up again today and that makes a substantial gain in the last week or so as the Gulf flares up and tensions rise. GDP worries are allayed as the US Fed indicate that rates will fall, maybe as soon as July. Pantheon call in a geophysicist to help with work in Alaska and to partner on the farm-out and I cover the Gulf Keystone AGM statement from Friday.

Oil rallied yesterday and is higher again today, tariff wars are pushed to the side as the Russians and the Saudis present a united front on oil production. SPIEF meeting in St Petersburg bringing out all the big players. Anglo African 'pause' the CPR which is disappointing but say that oil is still flowing from the well, just how much though? Catching up with Pantheon and some of the companies that got licences in the OGA 31st offshore round.
VOX Markets podcast: Echo Energy, Rose Petroleum, Pantheon Resources, Jersey Oil & Gas, Reabold Resources, Amerisur Resources, SDX Energy, Falcon Oil & Gas, Block Energy and Egdon Resources

Oil is strong after the Opec+ committee announced that quotas are likely to remain at next months meeting. Echo has announced that it has done a deal with CGC and is now concentrating on Tapi Aike and has materially reduced near term capital requirements which is very good news. JOG results are behind them and now with their partners they are setting about finding further prospects on the licence and looking at the extensive 3D seismic from last year. Rose Petroleum has raised money from OCE after previous donor Robert Bensh withdrew, and on better terms. With Reabold announcing commerciality of its two wells in California all we need now are the flow rates...And on that subject Pantheon is excited about the Alkaid well but still no commerciality here..
Good results from Trinity this morning and I had a very positive meeting with the board afterwards. Rockhopper has made great strides forward with regards to Sea Lion and shareholders can genuinely get excited about progress to development stage. Finally Pantheon has had a major disappointment in Alaska with both secondary targets being either water wet or not worth testing, two dusters leaving only the modest Brookian to try and become commercial.
Oil fell at the end of last week although most pointers were, and still are, upwards. Jersey Oil & Gas have spudded the Verbier appraisal well which hopefully add a great deal to the partners knowledge of the block. Reabold have also spudded, theirs is in California at Monroe Swell, a name like that just has to come in. If it does it will pay back very quickly. Plexus have won a contract and the shares were up 30%...Egdon gave an upbeat update, Springs Road might well be a lifeline...And Pantheon, having delivered bad news from Winx on Friday said it was all ok today...
