Red Emperor Resources (RMP) and 88 Energy (88E) announced the acquisition of interests (31.5% and 36% respectively) in a large oil prospect in the prolific Alaska North Slope.  The Western Blocks prospect has a gross best estimate prospective resource volume of 400 million barrels of oil and a geological chance of success in the range of 25-30%.   Both companies are fully funded to drill the first well in early 2019.  88E subsequently announced a disappointing operations update regarding its Project Icewine and, possibly, little value now should be attached to this.  With market capitalisations of £5.66 million and £70.86 million respectively, RMP looks very interesting.

Petro Matad (MATD) announced that rig mobilisation has been completed ahead of the drilling of the Snow Leopard-1 well in Block V. The well is expected to spud during the week commencing 9 July 2018.  Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) announced a further delay of the TLP-103 well spud date and followed that up with the announcement of 2017 losses of nearly £3 million.  However, that was placed well into the shade by Frontera Resources (FRR)'s announcement of nearly $18 million losses for 2017 and, even more concerning, why was there no mention of the UD-2, Dino-2, and T-45 wells in FRR's post period operations update?

UK Oil & Gas Investments (UKOG), Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA), Solo Oil (SOLO), Primorus Investments (PRIM) and Gunsynd (GUN) all announced the commencement of extended flow testing operations at the Horse Hill-1 well.  The tests will last for 150 days.  Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG) announced the completion of the 3D seismic survey over its P.2170 licence area and delivery of the final imaged data by PGS from the survey continues to be expected in late Q1 2019.  This data will be integrated with the results from the Verbier appraisal well, scheduled for drilling late Q3/early Q4 this year.  Sound Energy (SOU) announced a new basin model and has updated its internally estimated volumes for the exploration potential of the Eastern Morocco acreage, expressed as unrisked gross gas originally in place, of a low case of 7 Tcf, a mid-case of 20 Tcf and a high case of 34 Tcf.

Rose Petroleum (ROSE) announced CEO interviews with Vox and Proactive at https://www.voxmarkets.co.uk/blogs/cadence-kdnc-jubilee-metals-group-jlp-i3-energy-i3e-rose-petroleum-rose/https://www.voxmarkets.co.uk/company/ROSE/multimedia and http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/9659/rose-petroleum-announces-cpr-results-for-paradox-basin-in-utah-9659.html.  Meanwhile, I3 Energy (I3E) announced a new presentation available at https://i3.energy/investor-relations/reports-and-presentations/, following its announcement that the company has granted a period of exclusivity to a potential farminee in order to conclude contractual negotiations which, upon success, would result in i3 being fully funded for both the Liberator field development and the appraisal of Liberator West.

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
