ECHO, SAVP, RPT, MATD, AAOG, PVR, EOG, PXOG, RBD, AEX and SOLO

Echo Energy (ECHO) started the week by announcing the succesful completion of drilling of the CSo-2001(d) well in which a notable gas column was interpreted from the wireline logging suite. Savannah Petroleum (SAVP) announced the result of the Kunama-1 exploration well as an oil discovery and Regal Petroleum (RPT) announced the successful workover of the SV-12 well at its Mekhediviska-Golotvshinska and Svyrydivske (SV) gas and condensate fields.

Petro Matad (MATD) announced the spud of the Snow Leopard-1 well targeting 90 MMBO. Drilling is expected to take up to 70 days to complete.  Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) announce the mobilisation of the SMP-102 rig which has been contracted by the Company to drill the TLP-103 well on the Tilapia field.

Providence Resources (PVR) announced that Gardline's M/V Kommandor site survey vessel has commenced demobilisation following the acquisition of data suitable for input to an application for the permitting of a Newgrange exploration well.  The Newgrange partners also confirmed that discussions in relation to a potential farm-out of equity in the Newgrange licence to third parties are continuing. Europa Oil & Gas (EOG) announced that its first well is targeted for mid-2019 on the Inishkea prospects in the Slyne licence LO 16/20.  In addition, EOG has launched a farmout process for three of its licences in the South Porcupine Basin, FELs 1/17, 2/13 and 3/13, which together are estimated to hold gross mean un-risked prospective resources of 4.3 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Some big numbers here for a company with a £14 million market cap.

Prospex Oil & Gas (PXOG) announced an update on the ongoing work programme to test known gas bearing sandstone sequences at the Tesorillo Project.  Tesorillo covers 38,000 hectares in a proven hydrocarbon region and contains a known gas discovery, which a Competent Person's Report undertaken by Netherland Sewell and Associates estimated could hold best estimate gross unrisked prospective resources of 830 billion cubic feet of gas with upside in excess of 2 trillion cubic feet of gas.  Reabold Resources (RBD) announced that an independent review of the Parta appraisal programme (in which Reabold has an interest via its 29 per cent. shareholding in Danube Petroleum Limited) has recently been completed. The assessment includes the two planned appraisal wells in the Parta exploration license and recently acquired Iecea Mare production license and confirms previously announced contingent resource estimates. 

Perhaps of more interest, Aminex (AEX) announced a transformational Ruvuma farm-out establishing an early production system to achieve accelerated first gas to a minimum gross rate of 40 million cubic feet of gas per day (equivalent to approximately 6,700 barrels of oil per day). JV partner Solo Oil (SOLO) now is reviewing its options following AEX's announcement, which it sees as validation of the commercial and technical viability of the Ntorya development. Initial discussions are being held with potential project financing partners for SOLO's 25% of the Ntorya development. One to keep an eye on.

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
