Oil is dithering, another record day for COVID-19 yesterday as the US reported over 75,000 new cases but there are other countries vying for the unenviable record. Today oil is off around 40 cents ahead of the rig count.
I note the further statement by Reabold this morning with regard to the ‘possible offer’ for Deltic Energy. It seems that the areas of difference are going to be around West Newton and of course price and whilst this isn’t an actual bid yet the price mentioned seems at first glance look like a bit of a ‘sighter’. Also RBD aren’t quite sure whether the Deltic wells are exploration or appraisal…
Whilst I have had a number of enquiries from shareholders of both companies it seems that neither management is either able or keen to talk about what is going on. I have calls into both companies which have not been replied to since yesterday and I note that neither company has IR/PR representation in this process.

It is also another F1 weekend, this week the circus is in Hungary, it has been raining this morning but when out the Mercs were the fastest.
And the 2nd test match continues, with ‘Chinese’ and ‘Creepy Jnr’ back in the hutch after getting out to the slow bowler (not to be confused with a spinner) having a fill-in over before lunch they will want to forget yesterday but not as much as Jofrah Archer….Score as I write is 220-3.
