Another rally from oil after the comments about Opec+ production crept into the market. At Union Jack the capital reduction update paves the way for a dividend. Predator have FY 2021 figures and Angus are very close to first gas at Saltfleetby. I speak to Marshall Abbott, CEO of Arrow Energy Corp which is highly illuminating and Trinity starts a six well drilling programme and SDX spud MSD-23.
The US was shut for Juneteenth Day yesterday and today oil has rallied by well over a dollar. Reabold and Union Jack have announced a major and exciting plan for West Newton development the value of which dwarfs the combined companies market caps. Scirocco are urging shareholders to accept the Ruvuma deal and UOG have spudded in Egypt.
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.
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.
Oil is up today as demand looks stronger than any supply in the future. PetroTal has issued a very upbeat Q1 update which makes me want to increase the TP again. Gulfsands have done a very smart deal in Colombia which might not have been possible a few years ago. Petrofac are slightly cautious about the short term but the long term looks good to me, Egdon has paid off some debts and is making good returns from Wressle particularly, Union Jack gains from being paid back. Finally Challenger has gone on with its Uruguay acreage which is now looking very exciting.
Oil is unchanged today after a mixed week and influences varying from China to the USA. Union Jack have another positive update from Wressle where revenue has been incredible. IOG have had another teething problem but again it shouldn't hit the long term value of the field. Finally Reabold has sorted the situation in California and Daybreak is now funded to drill.
Oil was mixed last week, Friday almost made it even with WTI up 72 cents and Brent down 84c. Today another upbeat presentation from DEC was accompanied by another 6% increase in the dividend. Also a bullish update from Union Jack showed just how cheap the shares are.
Oil down, China crisis. An acquisition from DEC which looks like more of the same, ie very good. Chariot have appointed Societe Generale, London Branch to the role of financial advisor to develop debt funding options for the Anchois gas development, this is smart and good news. Egdon results but Shell walk away from their partnership with the company and Union Jack add the the Wressle good news to the update on the rest of their portfolio.
Oil is down again as Beijing looks to be joining the Covid lockdowns and Russia is still selling enough oil to fight...Today Union Jack again updates on Wressle revenues with $5m taken since August. And finals from Deltic but a delay on Pensacola until 'late Q3'.
A Flash blog today covering IOG bringing production back on at Blythe, DEC updating on its kit for reducing methane emissions and Union Jack and Egdon confirming that it has lodged the Biscathorpe appeal. Also for Empyrean it is an exciting few days as the Jade well keeps drilling ahead.
