Futures in New York posted its longest set of weekly gains since July after ending Friday 2.3% higher. More than a million barrels a day of US offshore crude production remains shut in after Ida swept through the area nearly two weeks ago. Meanwhile, more Louisiana refineries are resumi

88 Energy has drilled its most successful well to date on the North Slope of Alaska, with post well analysis of the Merlin-1 well demonstrating the presence of light oil in multiple stacked sequences in the Cretaceous Nanushuk Formation. The results have been incorporated into an updated Project Peregrine independent prospective resource estimate of 1.6 billion barrels, with the Merlin-2 prospect alone assessed as containing 652mmbbls of prospective resources and a 56% geological chance of succe
Oil dipped, trimming a weekly advance, as the fast-spreading delta variant continues to cloud the short-term demand outlook.
Futures closed nearly 1% lower on Friday in New York, narrowing a weekly gain to 0.2%. The latest Covid-19 wave is leading to tighter curbs on movement across the globe, though there are mixed assessments on its impact. The International Energy Agency reduced its demand forecasts for the rest of the year, while Goldman Sachs Group Inc. predicts only a transient hit to c
Oil fell, capping the biggest weekly loss since October, as the spread of the delta coronavirus variant in China and elsewhere in the world is casting doubts on demand growth.
West Texas Intermediate futures dropped 1.2% Friday and 7.7% for the week. The dollar rose following a better-than-expected US jobs report, weakening the appeal of commodities priced in the currency. China has imposed increasingly strict restrictions on mobility to fight the spread of the deadly variant, while records i
88 Energy has announced that it has detected the potential for additional upside at its Umiat oil field on the North Slope of Alaska. Analysis of the Umiat 3D seismic data, together with post well testing from the Merlin-1 exploration well have revealed the potential for additional reservoir sands in the footwall of the Umiat structure. 88 Energy has also announced that it has received approval for an amended work programme at Umiat, allowing the Company to defer its obligations to drill a well
Oil posted its fourth straight monthly gain as steady demand and tight supplies calmed concerns that a new wave of Covid-19 infections would cripple energy consumption.
Futures in New York ended the week 2.6% higher. While cases of the virus's delta variant have surged in recent weeks, mobility and other data point to strong demand in key economies that traders are watching. India posted the biggest gain in driving activity after restrictions were rolled back.

Following the completion of drilling operations at the Merlin-1 well in April, 88 Energy's focus has been on the post well analysis. Geochemical analysis of sidewall cores taken during drilling have confirmed the presence of hydrocarbons, with two samples in particular indicating the presence of oil. Importantly, these samples correspond with depths where good oil shows were noted during drilling, including petroliferous odour, fluorescence and cut. Further analysis will confirm not only the pre
Oil squeezed out its first weekly gain in three on signs that global demand is holding up despite concerns that the renewed spread of the virus could stall the recovery.
Futures in New York rose 0.2% this week, completely recouping a selloff on Monday that was stoked by the rapidly spreading delta variant. Fuel demand and road traffic from the US to Asia and Europe remains resilient, underscoring expectations that the recovery has not been derailed and global inventories will continue to shri
Oil declined the most this week since March as a resurgence of Covid-19 threatened the outlook for global fuel consumption in the near-term. While futures in New York edged up on Friday, yet but settled 3.7% lower this week. The rapidly spreading delta variant is triggering renewed restrictions on movement as it sweeps across the globe. The UK is considering stricter measures due to a surge in cases, Singapore is shutting hundreds of nightlife venues, and in the US, a mask mandate has been reins

Higher metal prices saw CAML achieve a 52% and 131% increase in EBITDA and FCF respectively in the first half of 2021, facilitating an attractive 8p interim dividend declaration (up 2p on H1 2020). The H1 results are tracking our full-year estimates, which if achieved would put CAML on an undemanding EV/EBITDA multiple of just 4x and see the shares yield over 8% at current market price.
