Oil was up just under 5 bucks last week, quiet today for Martin Luther King day. A great update from PetroTal who are breaking all production numbers and \angus who have had at least 6 intentions of interest in their assets. Reabold and Union Jack announced initial results of analysis of the West Newton Extended Well Test programme carried out in the second half of 2021 by RPS Group and the results of analysis carried out on fluids produced to surface. Finally Hurricane are starting to look like the good thing that they were.
Oil is slightly better and a number of companies have announcements today.
Oil crashes on new Covid variant concern, Gran Tierra sells its remaining stake in PetroTal, UJO and RBD give locals guidance on West Newton plans and Eco (Atlantic) has Interims.
Oil remains quietly firm, inventory stats in the US showed a big draw in products and crude remains 6% below the 5 year average. I take a look at Reabold Resources who have had a number of announcements lately.
Oil continues to rise, today the Opec and EIA reports show increased demand and reduced supplies which should have been expected all year. Russia have been hosting an Energy week at which both Putin and Novak made positive comments about the price of oil, $100, and the availability of gas when the Nordstream 2 pipeline comes in. Kosmos has bought stakes in Jubilee and TEN in Kenya from Oxy and i feature an interview with Andrew Austin at Kistos. Yesterday saw another excellent update from PetroTal who are at last on the move. I also look at the West Newton result and its implications for Union Jack Oil and Reabold Resources.
First day of the month and quarter and with an Opec+ on Monday there are no prizes for bravery in oil markets. Union Jack and Reabold are disappointed about the planning decision at West Newton but an appeal is probably likely. Scirocco completes its acquisition Echo has restructured its loan. San Leon note production news from Decklar and I cover results from the 15 sets yesterday including President and Getech as well as results from Zephyr with an interview with CEO Colin Harrington and from Savannah and an interview with CEO Andrew Knott.
Oil recovered last week's fall and was picked up on Mexican production loss and of course Hurricane Ida. Today I look at JOG on electrification, UJO and Reabold with exciting news from West Newton and Sound who have completed the Schlumberger deal. Also Hurricane announce an offer for the bonds, Lamprell update on recapitalisation and Eco Atlantic spud the Sapote-1 well and Zenith sign an agreement in Nigeria.
Oil rallied yesterday and is better again today. Union Jack and Reabold have little say about west Newton, just yet and Pharos looks better in Vietnam. Wentworth have a new NED and Harbour have two profit warnings today on run of the mill operational matters.
Oil held up modestly last week and is a touch better this morning, the Iranian election brought in a hardliner with a big majority in very low turnout. Predator has spudded the MOU-1 well in Morocco and Echo has good operational news from Argentina whilst Helium 1 has spotted helium in the drilling mud. Reabold has an extension at Parta and Trinity complete their share consolidation.
A big rally for oil yesterday as the Iran deal seemed to take a slight turn for the worse, I'm sure it will return. Signs of a pick-up in US air travel also made the oil bulls return. Chariot have made a strong move to become a unique, gas and renewables story covering over 17 countries in Africa. The raise will enable a well at Anchois to be drilled and hasten the roll-out of the transitional power team. Union Jack and Reabold have announced 6 weeks of testing at West Newton whilst Serica have announced an operating update at Columbus and the R3 well. Hurricane have results where they warn of equity destruction and Touchstone have more very positive news from Trinidad.
