Climate Forces Oil Cos to Improve Efficiency


May 3, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Microcap Speculators -- Oil has climbed more than 40% this year, underpinned mainly by production cuts from the OPEC-led group of exporters, and drop in supply from Venezuela and Iran. The so-called OPEC+ deal (an alliance of OPEC, Russia and other non-member countries) is withholding output by around 1.2 million barrels per day until the end of June. U.S. sanctions against Venezuela and Iran also continue to tighten the commodity’s fundamentals.

Meanwhile, natural gas prices rebounded slightly from their three-year lows despite a government report showing higher-than-expected increase in supplies. The gain could be attributed to weather-associated tailwinds that might lead to robust heating demand. While the fundamentals of natural gas consumption continue to be favorable, record high production in the United States and expectations for explosive growth through 2020 means that supply will keep pace with demand.

One oil & gas exploration deal that has done a great job improving its efficiency over the past 12 months and is set to complete a major deal is Camber Energy (AMEX: CEI).  CEI has worked very hard recently to improve their standing with the NYSE American, and spent a lot of 2018 cleaning up its balance sheet and improving its efficiency.  Their hard work is starting to receive recognition as CEI received a letter from the NYSE American about regaining several of their continued listing standards.

WHY NOW?  The company is set to close on an acquisition within the next couple weeks.  It has already received preliminary non-binding approval from the staff of the NYSE American of the planned terms of its contemplated acquisition of Lineal Star Holdings in an all-stock transaction.  Lineal's primary operating subsidiary has been in the pipeline integrity, construction and services industry for 64 years. It has Master Service Agreements in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, with planned growth in Texas, the Gulf South and the Mid-Continent.  Today, it announced that it has entered into a revised letter of intent with Lineal Star Holdings.

Today we’re highlighting: Camber Energy, Inc. (AMEX: CEI), Obsidian Energy Ltd. (OBE), Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. (NYSE: DO), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE: BPT), and Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (NASDAQ: PEIX).

Camber Energy, Inc. (AMEX: CEI) (Market Cap:
$6.23M; Share Price: $0.3117) turned a nearly $30 million shareholder deficit into $2.3 million of positive shareholders’ equity, increasing liquidity, extinguishing debt and fast tracking the company for regaining NYSE American compliance.  Investors are starting to show support to management’s progress and as more investors learn the story, the trend could continue.  Oil & Gas investors seeking competent fiscal management and efficient operations should research CEI.


Obsidian Energy Ltd. (OBE) (Market Cap: $141.265M; Share Price $0.2800) announced an operational update on its Cardium drilling program on April 16.  “We are examining every facet of the business to ensure we are always making improvements, including a continual review of our capital allocation, cost structure, and portfolio composition." commented Michael Faust, Interim President and CEO.
