A big rally last night for oil as inventories tightened again. Today I look at Kistos which looks particularly attractive now that MIME is bedding in. Figures from Rockhopper show that the arbitration €260m should be getting closer and United Oil & Gas are working hard across the portfolio. SDX has a successful gas well and Trinity updates on Jacobin in the figures. Petro Matad is going to take time so don't hold your breath and finally I reprise the missing work on Reabold, Union Jack and Longboat from yesterday.
Oil remains firm despite some data headwinds. Hunting has announced collaboration with CRA Tubulars which is normally worth watching and Predator have released more information from MOU-4. Rockhopper have some good news with regard to its arbitration and Trinity has said that the Jacobin well has sidetracked but encountered the zones they are looking for. Finally Gran Tierra updated with good, increasing current production numbers.
Oil price, PetroTal, Kistos, Arrow, Southern, Hunting, Angus, Longboat, Empyrean, Prospex, Rockhopper, IGas, Reabold. And finally…
Oil fell today as uncertainty rips through Washington about the debt ceiling. Today excellent news from Arrow and Kistos with results and Southern had good quarterlies. Hunting made a really good contract and upped guidance and Angus goes from strength to strength at Saltfleetby. Longboat announce a rig fora. well in 3Q 2024...Empyrean raise and update, Prospex is delayed in Italy because of the bad weather. Reabold and RKH have figures and IGas are in for a hospital contract. PetroTal move towards its social contract.
Update from PetroTal is very positive as is the news from Rockhopper. Coro also update from the Philippines.
Oil fell again as banks take the centre stage with rumours of more failures/bail outs. San Leon are delayed again, this time as NNPC wade in. Rockhopper are excited as Navitas have an independent report from NSAI which adds to resources and cuts costs.
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...
