The oil price remains firm and this morning is challenging important levels. President has again given a blockbuster statement with more to come this year whilst SOCO’s update was good, i like the Egypt acquisition. Echo are on site fraccing in Argentina and Columbus are making steady progress towards their Latin American targets. Finally Faroe has gone as DNO up the offer and buy up shares in the market, it’s the market’s view but so short term it’s almost indefensible…
Oil rallied yesterday but fell sharply along with markets worldwide after the Fed raised rates again. Faroe has released its response to the DNO bid which ‘substantially undervalues this high growth, full cycle NS business’. Derisory. More good news from President who have closed out the new concessions at Puesto Prado and are getting to work on the assets. Range Resources say that they are paying the coupon on the convertible in shares to keep cash in the business. And from earlier in the week I look at Wentworth Resources who have exited Mozambique and may be one to watch for 2019 on the corporate front.
A round up on the move of a number of companies including Petrofac trading update, President having further well success and other news from the sector.
No news from Opec+ until later we think, uncertainty in the market just now. Another great well from President in Argentina and with one still drilling they will end the year on a great note. Sound have spudded TE-10 at Tendrara whilst Ophir have a good discovery and a dry hole of less importance. Premier are firing on all cylinders production wise and have also spudded the Mexico appraisal well whilst Tower now have a rig for its Cameroon well 2H 2019.
Flash blog on President completing Rio Negro acquisition with all the benefits that brings. Pantheon finally bring on VOS#1 albeit at a modest level and Eco Atlantic completes its farm-out to Total thus firing the starting gun for Orinduik …..
An up day for oil as speculators suspected some production falling ahead of the Opec+ meeting next week. Rose Petroleum do a canny deal with Encore and their database keeping exposure, enjoying Vanadium and chance to get stuck into the Paradox Basin. President spud well three in Puesto Flores and IGas spud Tinker Lane, at long last. Faroe start their defence campaign and i comment on a dry hole for Petro Matad and a good move from Lamprell.

Oil strengthened yesterday as inventories, despite showing a build in crude had a draw at Cushing and a decent draw in gasoline numbers. President Energy has had a huge result with its first well of three in Argentina and over at Wressle the partners have had their planning application recommended for approval which doesnt guaranty anything in council circles…
Oil remains weak, proper action will be needed on Dec 6th. More good news from President with another good well and it looks like more to come, Hurricane’s Aoka Mizu has paused in Spain for re-crewing, refueling and some minor repairs. With Wick and Colter now in sight Reabold, Upland and United Oil & Gas are ready for action. Providence Resources have pressed the button and partners have approved the budget for Dunquin South. Meanwhile over at Velocys its change the guard again and there is much to do.
