Oil prices notched the longest stretch of weekly losses since March with U.S. President Joe Biden keeping investors guessing about whether he'll act to tame higher energy prices that are driving a surge in inflation.
Futures in New York fell 1% on Friday, yet pared some losses near the end of the session after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to say whether Biden plans to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. She said the administration has been pushing oil-producing

The motorcades, private jets and rail debacles of COP26 have firmly highlighted the ongoing role that oil and gas have to play in our world. Equities do not reflect this and our benchmark index made up of ~70 AIM listed oil and gas juniors shows the sector is 20% below the 2016 cyclical low point and up 77% from the April 2020 COVID-19 driven low. Meanwhile, Brent is up 423% over the same period to 7-year highs while gas prices have spiked to record highs. Rising commodity prices evidently no lo

Touchstone’s first production test at the Royston-1 discovery has confirmed a light oil discovery in the lowermost section of the well, adding further potential to this future development. This is a long way from the Chinook disappointment, with oil in place thought to be at least 100 mmbbls, and potential significantly larger. This should be easily and economically developable and raises confidence levels for the deeper Kraken Cretaceous exploration prospect, which management will be keen to ge

Touchstone announced its fifth consecutive discovery on the Ortoire block in Trinidad last week, with the Royston well encountering nearly 400ft of hydrocarbon pay, double pre-drill expectations. The discovery needs to be production tested to confirm its commercial viability but is thought to be the largest geological structure on the block in the Herrera formation, which could ultimately rival Shell’s 500 bcf Central block reserves. We are lowering our geological risking on Royston, which incre

Financials for August are broadly in line with our expectations. The three new Thorsby wells drilled in August and September could be on stream for November with an individual IP rate of ~2

Phoenix copper today announces an update on its deep drilling program below the proposed Empire oxide open pit resource and into the deeper sulphide zone. Phoenix is roughly 1/4 the way through a 4,500m drilling programme and has once again shown that high-grade zones of copper, zinc and lead sulphide mineralisation exist, nearly always associated with gold and/or silver and often with elevated concentrations of tungsten and molybdenum.

• Current production of 11,775 bbl/d (down from ~14,200 bbl/d in early October) reflects the natural decline and potential completion flow restriction at Well-8H which had IP rate of ~7.7 mbbl/d 2 months ago).
• First oil for Well-9H has been delayed by three weeks to the first week of December due to operational issues and the need to drill a sidetrack. As a result, the 4Q21 production guidance has been reduced from 16.0 16.5 mbbl/d to 12.5-13.5 mbbl/d and the expected average production in Dec

European gas prices are never far away from the headlines at the moment, although Parkmead’s results to end-June did not capture this surge in prices – that is yet to come. Parkmead is well placed to benefit from the current strength in European gas prices, while the potential for another commodity super-cycle suggests there is further progress to come on its major GPA oil project. A strong net cash position also puts it in the driving seat for potential acquisitions.

Trinity has received FDP approval from the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries (MEEI) for the Phase 1 development of the Galeota licence. The submitted development plan has the potential to add additional peak production of c4,000 bopd; however more recent modelling suggests that intra-year peak production could be significantly higher, up to 7,000 bopd. Whilst the current development concept comprises the installation of a low-cost eight well platform (Echo), we note that Trinity is also w
