Oil continues to rise quietly as the agencies remain confident about world demand albeit skewed strongly to the second half. Another positive operational update from PetroTal which is yet to be in the share price, President also have a positive update from Argentina. Finally Petrofac have announced a contract win with BP as well as a changeover in CFO, I wish Al Cochran well in the future.
Oil is still up, but gasoline in the US has rallied more after a ransomware cybersecurity attack on the Colonial pipeline which takes products from the Gulf to the Northeast of the US. Union Jack and Reabold have called in Gaffney Cline for a CPR at West Newton, and Hurricane has issued an operational update. President also update on ops and the oil and gas prices in Argentina whilst Petro Matad are a step closer to field approval. And would you believe that CNR would drill in Guildford station car park?
Oil has had a good couple of days as we end the month and mainly on the US economic data which showed GDP of 6.4% and another fall in jobless numbers. DGO has made a most interesting acquisition away from Appalachia down in Louisiana and Jadestone has also had the cheque book out in Malaysia. President has had another great well result and remains rightly confident whilst Hurricane has crash landed with the bond holders pushing the equity players out of the plane.
Oil is up again after the Opec+ meeting closed reaffirming existing production levels. The API stats showed a 4.32m build ahead of today's EIA numbers. Kistos announced the Tulip bond and a presentation to investors on Friday, in addition I interview Chairman Andrew Austin. And President further operational news and Chairman Peter Levine remains full of beans.
Oil has weakened a bit as India in particular is reporting much worse virus numbers on a daily basis. Wentworth has reported excellent finals and a 27% hike in the divvi. Kistos was priced at 155p but that looks way too cheap to me as a few blue chip instos climbed aboard in the raise. President have more good news on the operational front and Hunting remains best in class as proven in the year since negative WTI prices.
Oil remains strong on the back of positive economic data from the US and China. President has further good news from Argentina and Helium One has raised £10m at 10p.
Oil is very quiet still, IOG have started the drilling on Phase 1 in the SNS and Petro Matad are continuing their licence for exploitation application. President update on drilling, Touchstone have a success at Ortoire and Empyrean up the chances of success in China.
Oil is flat, the market thinks it knows the result of tomorrow's Opec+ meeting and is levelling its books on the last day of the month and the quarter. Lots of news today, PetroTal update on sales and risk, Touchstone have a disappointing well and there are good figures from GKP. President remain upbeat as are Tower and Advance makes its debut in London. Finally I interview the Zephyr CEO.
Yesterday's oil fall was in response to the Saudis saying that oil was back flowing after the attack on the Ras Tanura terminal by Houthi rebels. Today it is back to normal, up 50 cents as I write. Cairn has sold out in the North Sea and put money into the Western Desert in Egypt as well as having annual results. GKP has received money from the KRG for Shaikan sales and President update on the drilling programme.
After all the Hullabaloo oil was even last week, today however it has tipped upwards again. I look at Chariot who have signed a collaboration Agreement with Subsea Integration Alliance for Anchois. Angus Energy are positive after news that their loan has seen substantial subscription. President update on 2020 and give guidance for 2021 whilst Echo publish their bond restructuring details.
