LOGP, PVR, SAVP, EOG, UKOG, EDR, ANGS, UJO, CNE, UOG, FPM and ECHO

Landsdowne Oil & Gas (LOGP) announced on Friday a placing to raise £900,000, conversion of the £326,911 Brandon Hill capital loan into shares and partial conversion (£680,000) of the LC Capital Master Fund loan into shares, all at the placing price of 1.3p.  This will result in a total of 656,849,846 shares outstanding which, at Friday's closing price of 1.45p, gives a market capitalisation for LOGP of £9.52 million.

Providence Resources (PVR) closed on Friday with a market capitalisation of £62.9 million, so when it comes to Barryroe, LOGP at first appears the better option with its 10% compared to PVR's 40% if the Chinese farm out completes.  However, PVR reminded the market on Tuesday that it has many other licences in addition to Barryroe when it issued an announcement regarding Newgrange stating among other things that it is in dialogue with a number of third parties regarding a potential farm out of equity.  However, as I commented last week, I do not think there is any rush to buy here.

Savannah Petroleum (SAVP) announced on Tuesday the spud of the Bushiya-1 well in Niger. As I anticipated previously, there was no positive market reaction.  The shares are now down over 22% from the recent 35p placing place, having been emasculated by the Nigeria production acquisition.

Europa Oil & Gas (EOG) released interim results last Wednesday.  In addition to the Environment Agency being "minded to award" a bespoke environmental permit for drilling and testing the Holmwood exploration well (partners UKOG EDR ANGS UJO) in PEDL 143 in the Weald Basin, Surrey, EOG reported that it has mapped six prospects with combined potential of 2.5 trillion cubic feet of gas initially in place on LO 16/20 in the Slyne basin, adjacent to the producing Corrib gas field, and that the 3D seismic survey over Cairn Energy (CNE) operated LO 16/19 in the South Porcupine in which EOG has a 30% carried interest has been completed.  The same day, well known oil and gas investors David and Monique Newlands declared a 4.12% stake.  At a £10.4 million market capitalisation, EOG looks interesting.

However, if this is the current valuation level for this type of company, then others such as United Oil & Gas (UOG) (£11.67 million market capitalisation), which last week announced the commencement of seismic acquisition on its 20% owned Walton-Morant licence, Jamaica, really look quite expensive.

Faroe Petroleum (FPM) announced significant discoveries on Wednesday at its Hades and Iris prospects with estimated recoverable hydrocarbons of 19 - 113 mmboe and 19 - 132 mmboe respectively.  At the same time, DNO ASA announced it had purchased 15.37% of the company at a price of 125p per share and intended to acquire up to 10% of the outstanding shares in the Company through a reverse book building process.  One to keep an eye on.

Echo Energy (ECHO) announced Friday the mobilisation of the rig for a three well workover campaign at the Company's Fracción D asset, Argentina.  This project could do well, but the share price barely moved and at 12.6p remains down 28% from the 17.5p placing price in January.  The current problem here, in my opinion, is that the 64.5 million 3p warrants, blocklisted end February, are still being worked through.

Union Jack Oil (UJO) announced a West Newton technical update.   They’re now talking about a B-2 well, which is provisionally planned to be drilled in H2 2021.   No word yet on Wressle, in respect of which it was previously stated that the Ashover Grit reservoir was to be flowed prior to the end of January 2021.   Perhaps we’ll see something on that tomorrow. Reabold Resources (RBD) , the effective majority owner of West Newton, took advantage of the “provisionally planned” B-2 well to raise a further £7.5 million via a placing at 0.55p.   What’s important here is the outcome of the flow testing of the B-1Z well, which now is going to be tested ahead of the A-2 well (that’s the second time now that the A-2 testing has been delayed), commencing in Q1 2021. Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC) announced that Lombard Odier’s holding has fallen below the lowest applicable notification threshold.   It appears they wanted to take no risk on the outcome of the drill, which is expected imminently

Pantheon Resources (AIM PANR OTC PTHRF ) announced a management resource upgrade on its Shelf Margin Deltaic sequence encountered in the the Talitha #A well.   It estimates that the SMD-B zone has the potential to contain 2.6 billion barrels of oil in place and a P50 contingent resource (recoverable) of 404 million barrels of oil.   Analysis is not yet complete on the SMD-A and SMD-C zones, although it is anticipated that the SMD-A will experience a reduction, whereas the SMD-C is broadly in line with previous analysis.   Crucially, Pantheon confirmed that discussions have commenced with a number of groups for the purpose of seeking the farmout of a working interest percentage in one or more of its Alaskan projects, the aim being to complete a farmout or funding in the fourth quarter to provide sufficient capital for future drilling and testing.   PANR 's objective for winter 2021 / 22 is for an active work programme to test all zones of the Talitha #A well and to drill at least

Another exciting week for Hurricane Energy (AIM HUR OTC HRCXF ).   On Monday, the High Court refused to sanction the restructuring plan (the key court documents, which contain some fascinating information, are in the private blog) and the defeated Hurricane board continued to witter on about liquidation and risk of no value being returned to shareholders, further threatening that if the non-executive directors were removed at the meeting on 5 July, it was likely the NOMAD would resign with immediate effect and trading in the shares would be suspended.   By Wednesday, though, the HUR directors had started to accept the new reality and consented to board changes with immediate effect.   The share price had a strong week, more than doubling to 3.52p.   The restructuring plan valued the shares at less than 0.1p. i3 Energy ’s (AIM I3E TSX ITE ) board had better luck last week in the High Court, which approved the cancellation of the company’s share premium account, allowing payment of
