Genel update on receipts from the KRG, San Leon update on Nigeria whilst the Spanish Archer arrives at SDX. I also note yesterday's RNS from Rockhopper.
Oil was up last week but interest week ahead so cautious on the last day of the month today. DEC have done another ABS refinancing and is aligned with ESG asset backed securitisation. Sound Energy are also continuing the financing and the farm-out continues. Rockhopper have heard that the Italian Govt are trying to have the arbitration annulled. And Jay Bhattacherjee comes in at the Chairman role at SDX.
Oil rose on Hurricane Ian but he is now in Florida and only Cat 1, also inventory numbers were better than the whisper. Union Jack and Reabold issue a big CPR on West Newton which will bring huge value and Rockhopper is looking very good looking forwards. Finally later in the morning the news broke that Capricorn is abandoning its deal with Tullow and forming a new energy company with Delek Group, New Med Energy. Capricorn shareholders get a big payout anda residual holding in NewMed.
Oil gained but gave back most of the gains at the end of the day. Union Jack and Reabold both flag the West Newton CPR due next week and Rockhopper completes the Navitas farm-in. Longboat look like they might have a discovery at Oswig but need a side-track and DST to confirm preliminary numbers that are better than pre-drill estimates. Finally, IGas and Egdon have both written thank you letters to that nice Mr Rees-Mogg for his relaxation of shale regulations.
Oil had a big day on the back of the KSA interview about Opec, elsewhere Arrow has had a very good few months in London and Coro try again to sell the Italian assets, now worth much more than when they fell through before. But most of all interest is that Rockhopper has won its arbitration case with the Republic of italy and been awarded €190m plus interest...
Oil rallied, a weak dollar ahead of the Fed meeting helped. Gas is looking even tighter as Russia is cutting Nordstream 1 gas to 20% of capacity. Genel announce payments from the KRG, San Leon note that Decklar is looking to open up production, and Union Jack appoints new additional firepower. Rockhopper sees good news on Sea Lion, Advance raises money today.
After oil took a caning last week on Fed and sundry lousy interest rate news it is important to notice that Opec+ is still missing by a distance its own quotas. The price fell sharply on Friday as the Fed said that it would be 'more aggressive' in getting inflation back to 2%. Union Jack has more good news from Wressle, Chariot has announced the Anchois FEED contract and IOG have a lengthy update on its portfolio. Rockhopper have given details of their Open Offer, Jadestone have suffered an unfortunate oil leak and Cornerstone Resources update.
Oil fell on the Fed confirming a 75bp rise with Swiss and UK central banks today and the ECB being what only they can be...Lots of company news today, PetroTal have a good sales update, Zephyr are investing better than expected cash flow, Rockhopper raise went very well, Harbour are buying back $200m, Longboat update in full detail, Hurricane monthly shows more cash build up and President have a bare bones update.
With US markets closed due to Memorial Day today is pretty irrelevant, last week oil was pretty good as a supply shortage, particularly in products pushed oil up sharply. Today DEC announce a good piece of securitisation work giving scope for future deals, Egdon and Union Jack celebrate FDP approval at Wressle, Rockhopper results, Arrow bring on RCE-2, Echo update from Argentina and UOG may have a duster in Egypt, more testing needed. And Savannah announced late on Friday a renewable deal in Chad.
After the substantial rise in the oil price last week and again yesterday oil is lower today. Rockhopper has announced that the Sea Lion farm-out has gone ahead and Empyrean has announced good interim results from its Jade well. Trinity has a Q1 update , UOG meet Q1 production guidance and Arrow look to have a successful well in Colombia.
