Tag: Premier Oil

Todays blog is dedicated to three of the best UK Companies in the sector. Premier have traded immaculately and have bought some assets off BP. Together with Rockhopper they have farmed-out a 30% interest in Sea Lion in the Falklands to Navitas which is very good for RKH as the farm-in strengthens the development considerably. And finally, RockRose continues to deliver the goods financially and operationally ,has almost all its share price in cash and is full of value.

Trinity’s operational update is positive particularly going forward where low-cost, high margin publication gives the business ‘significant upside potential’. Over at Premier the operational excellence continues as the Tolmount East well comes in, a very valuable discovery indeed. Finally the Gazelle-1 well results from Petro Matad are inconclusive at best and confirming withdrawal from Block V which I thought had already been done, at least this year.

Oil is quiet ahead of the statement from Jackson Hole where Fed Chair Jerome Powell speaks later. Jersey Oil & Gas has announced another licence award with the gain of 21/2a containing the Glenn oil discovery in the Greater Buchan Area. Yesterday Premier announced results proving consistent operational success, specifically from Catcher, selling Zama and expecting Tolmount to deliver next. After that Sea Lion is the biggest growth area and elsewhere in the portfolio things are good. SDX in line with expectations, Getech continue to restructure and Falcon get the all clear to drill in the Beetaloo.

All was well in the oil market until rumours of a deal between the US and Iran over their missile programme knocked two dollars off the price in minutes. When it turned out that Iran insisted that the US don’t sell any more arms to Saudi Arabia the joke wore a bit thin. Today I look at another excellent update from Premier where all is soon to be cooking on Tolmount gas. The Anglo African funding goes ahead, what was the alternative and Reabold announce completion of the Parta Exploration licence farm-in.

An AGM statement today from Genel where operations are clearly going very well: total net WI production is 37,600 bopd running slightly ahead of the expected increase in y/y production. Very little to add for Premier at today’s AGM, operationally all is going well, indeed with production of 80.1 kboed the company has seen fit to up its guidance to 75-80 kboed.
