Oil price, Providence Resources, And finally…


Oil price

The oil price did rally yesterday for a while as the market rather enjoyed the Chinese import data which showed that May was the second highest month ever and that demand was picking up. Later in the day though, the market drifted on nothing much apart from gossip about Nigerian production and the Opec agreement being a bit flaky and we ended down again on the day.

Providence Resources

It has been quite a week for PVR as they hauled in a super-major to potentially partner them offshore Ireland at Druid and Drombeg as well as Avalon. They and Sosina have signed an agreement with Total who now have an exclusive option that gives them the right, but not the obligation to participate in the above prospects. Total has now the chance to take a 35% interest and Operatorship in FEL 2/4 which includes Druid and Drombeg for the payment of $27m (80% to PVR) which is incredibly good news.

They have also announced that Total has farmed-into a 50% WI in LO 16/27 and that Cairn has taken an option to farm-into a 20% WI of the licence, if they decide to drill an exploration well then Total will pay for 60% of the costs and Cairn 24%, capped at $42m. These deals are incredibly important, even transformative for PVR who get a super-major on the case, delivery of Druid and Drombeg and maybe Avalon too, not to mention the cash injection to the drilling programmes.

And finally…

Another very busy weekend of sport around the globe, sports fans will have to be on their mettle to ensure that they miss nothing.

In the cricket, today is the Kiwis vs the Bangas whilst tomorrow is the big clash between England and Australia where the Aussies could go out of the tournament.

The other big clash tomorrow is in the football World Cup qualis where Scotland take on England whilst Northern Ireland are in Azerbaijan.

The British Lions are taking on the Crusaders with an early start tomorrow and this is another hard match with 8 more full All Black caps in the side.

In Paris Muzza is in the semi-finals of the French Open against Stan the man which will also be hard going…

Great Britain are unsurprisingly out of the America's Cup, beaten by New Zealand who even managed to capsize in one race…

And it's the Canadian GP with its famous wall of champions that has historically taken a few scalps…

  Oil price The market ran out of steam yesterday, there was no shortage of good news but a combination of profit taking and a lessening of geopolitical risk in Kurdistan as I reported yesterday, took the heat out of the market. That was added to by Shell lifting the Force Majeure on Bonny Ligh ...

  Oil price Onward and sedately upwards, the oil market takes note of the near 400/- b/d closed in from Kurdistan although not panicking as surely some agreement will be put in place. Chatter that the Opec/Non-Opec agreement might be extended through the whole of 2018 also supported prices but ...

  Oil price No blog yesterday as I was ‘out and about' but company news is fairly thin on the ground at the moment.

  Oil price A bit of drift yesterday as markets read the final of the three monthlies, this one from the IEA and was more bearish than the others. It rather spoiled the party as it reduced demand forecasts although most other forecasts remained as before. The good news is that in all the years ...
