Oil came back sharply yesterday as the Saudis said that production would be back to normal by the end of this month, way sooner than expected. Rockhopper results are fine but its all about Sea Lion which is progressing waiting for senior debt and of course the Ombrina Mare arbitration. At Chariot they have a CPR over additional prospects in the Lixus licence which takes the number to over TCF. SDX has had a find in Egypt and adds 315 b/d to production and EOG has been awarded an offshore licence in Morocco, the current hot post code internationally.

BP are on stand by for a Panorama documentary tonight about their dealings in Senegal with Frank Timis who is also in the firing line. BP are also on the verge of selling their Egypt assets to Dragon Oil for $600m+ according to Reuters.
