    Analysts Still Bullish on Permian-Based Upstream Stocks

    Upstream companies have been very volatile in recent weeks. That’s due to strong volatility in crude oil and natural gas prices. The SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP), which includes 56 exploration and production companies, saw a three-month low of $38.80 in August. It recovered significantly by the end of that month. However, most of the gains were eroded in the recent fall.

    Equatorial Guinea to launch new oil and gas bid round in January

    Equatorial Guinea will launch a new oil and gas exploration bidding round early next year and may refuse extensions of existing licences to oil companies unless they collectively invest a minimum of $2 billion (1.6 billion pounds) in the country, the oil minister said on Thursday. Oil minister Gabriel Obiang Lima said the licence extensions, which would be negotiated later in September and October, could impact operations by U.S. oil major ExxonMobil (XOM.N), Kosmos Energy (KOS.N), Marathon Oil (MRO.N) and Noble Energy (NBL.N). "We expect all of them to have an understanding that we do want serious investment in activities and if that is not happening ... some of the extensions they will be asking for will not be handed over," Obiang Lima told Reuters at an African oil and power conference.
