Oil rallied yesterday as the dollar fell and Chinese leaders pledged 'strong support' for the economy. Today Southern Energy has showed its versatility by slowing organic growth and adding inorganic pressure from acquisitions like the Gwinville deal. Beacon at long last announce that the SCHB-2(2) well has been a success and better than pre-drill estimates with flow rates yet to come.
Oil has drifted today, $70 and $75 says the market but not for long...Zephyr has raised £3.15m as a small top-up to ensure the asset base is drilled out, Southern has completed the excellent, synergistic PetroTX Energy deal and Beacon are set to mobilise in Germany on 12th June, as they say.
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.
Oil is solid ahead of further default talks and Chevron have made a classic acquisition of PDC Energy. Kistos have completed the Mime deal and it looks better than ever....Southern Energy have done a deal of their own and it looks highly accretive as well. And GKP have blinked first and canceled the latest dividend.
Oil drifted as the greenback rose, Chinese data though is picking up...Today IOG have some operational problems, nothing that hasnt been seen before though. Southern Energy release full year results, nothing to add to recent updates but holding back some production until prices rise again. Angus gave a brief update but all appears well at Saltfleetby whilst Afentra are looking good in Angola with things on the move there. Finally Hurricane updated, Prax still waiting there and UOG confirmed yesterday about extending their own long-stop date.
A quarterly update of the Bucket List to reflect recent performance as well as a year/year check.
Oil was firm yesterday with the Turkey pipeline keeping 400/- b/d off the market. Today Genel add to the detail of that shut-in at local level. Kistos update the market on Benriach and the Netherlands and Arrow publish year end reserves data. Southern have also released a great deal of data as they throttle back the drilling programme in the current low natural gas price environment. Coro update on Asia and Predator confirm details of the raise.
The 2023 Bucket List is published today, five companies are leaving one way or another and three are joining the group. The Oil and Gas prices both showed consistency in being virtually unchanged on the year although the prices changed at different times during it, see the charts. The blog also announces how the 2022 list fared.
Oil is under pressure as China battles with Covid, so far losing the battle despite the 'magic weapon' of zero tolerance. Southern Energy has reported a good set of figures with much excitement to come. Kistos is pursuing a scheme of arrangement in order to restructure and be able to pay out to shareholders. A new CEO on the way at Petrofac and a positive update from Coro in Italy.
Oil was very quiet yesterday unchanged on the day. Ithaca is returning to the London market and Genel and GKP announce KRG payments whilst Trinity complete the buy-back programme. Finally I get to meet with the management of Southern Energy Corp and have issued an initiation Target Price of 150p.
