Opec day today so we are in the land of guesswork, yesterdays modest fall was in response to the speech by the Saudi Oil Minister who was corralling the Russkis to sign up for the 2018 deal. The price this morning is showing Brent up by nearly 50 cents so is predicting an agreement but given historical lapses do nothing until the announcement is out.

Sound Energy - LON:SOU
Sound has announced exploration volume estimates for Sidi Moktar this morning. The independent preliminary technical evaluation carried out by EG Group of the historical exploration well and the 2D seismic data over the Sidi Moktar permits and the early results are most promising.

EG reports a range of unrisked gas originally in place on a gross basis from a low case of 6.7 TCF through a best case 8.9 TCF and a high case of 11.2 TCF. EG suggest at least three promising leads with substantial opportunities although the company correctly caution against the element of risk attached to these observations.

And finally…
In the midweek footie all the top sides apart from Spurs won although the Noisy Neighbours left it pretty late last night. Big Sam is walking into a winter wonderland and must be thinking how it all fell into place whilst David Moyes is already under severe pressure…
