Oil price, Amerisur, Victoria Oil & Gas, Sundry-Faroe-IGTV interview on bucket list.


Oil price

The oil market is now almost shut for the Christmas holiday and was solid yesterday on the back of pretty good US economic data. It is worth keeping an eye on the natural gas price which remains firm and is probably likely to remain so. Preliminary numbers on US natural gas consumption for December are out and they show the US, particularly in residential and commercial use, increasing dramatically. The first three weeks of the month show consumption of 92 bcf/d which is up 21% y/y and 17% up on the 5 year average.

Amerisur Resources

AMER has announced that it has spudded the Plat 24 well, the second of two infill wells which will take around 30 days to drill and test and cost around $4m on a dry hole basis. The outlook is bright for AMER with the OBA open and hopefully expanding its throughput and a fully funded drilling programme for next year.

Victoria Oil & Gas

VOG has announced that it has successfully completed phases 11 and 111 of the Banaberi pipeline extension. This is 15km of pipe and spur lines giving meters to seven new customers who will take at least 600/- scf/d. The pipeline extends VOG's reach into the western industrial area and new industrial links. Meanwhile the batch drilling of La-107 and 108 is making up for lost time and has completed the 17 1/2″ sections and is moving to the 12 1/4″. All this is very positive news and when the story gets told early next year may show quite how cheap VOG is…

Sundry

I spotted an announcement yesterday in Faroe (To their credit Vox Markets alert on stocks one follows) that Delek have taken a 13% stake in Faroe from Dana/KNOC in an off market trade. I havent any more details at the moment but would consider this to be good news for Faroe, not that they would worry about the stake but Delek have shown a degree of responsibility in having a stake in Ithaca as far as I am aware…

Bucket list

In a regular interview with IGTV I discussed this week the year end take on the bucket list, with only a month to go we chatted about the stocks in it and how things have evolved this year. The link is below and also on malcysblog.com along with all my other recent interviews and CEO chats. In the meantime I will try and catch up on all those emails I havent replied to yet!

IG interview: Will 2017 be another year of ‘sex and violence' for the ‘Bucket List'?

And finally…

There is plenty of good sport over the festive season that I cant detail it all. Plenty of football from Boxing Day onwards of course and I note that Alan Pardew lost his job at the Eagles yesterday, by then Big Sam should be in place. The best sporting event will of course be the King George meeting at Kempton Park although there is a lot of good rugby too.

Having said all that it only remains for me to wish all my readers a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and hopefully prosperous New Year. 2016 has been an interesting time, not without risk and proper ups and downs, maybe 2017 will be better for our commodity, I have a feeling it might!

The continued strong dollar hasn't been helping and the market is still concerned about those Chinese ...

Oil price Sometimes the market wants to go in a certain direction, a few weeks ago no amount of good news could trigger a rally, at the moment it is the other way around. Yesterday, news that the uprising in the control room at the Sharara field in Libya had been put down and production was back u ...

Oil price The oil market was fast and furious yesterday and in heavy trading both WTI and the new front month of Brent crude for October struggled under a welter of mainly disappointing news. The first was the Bloomberg report that July output from Opec was again above quotas with an increase of 2 ...

Elsewhere it was announced that there will be a meeting on 7/8 Augu ...
