Petrobras has delayed the submission of binding offers for an oilfield cluster known as Polo Garoupa for a fourth time, two sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters, as investor appetite in Brazil's offshore oil sector rapidly dries up. With annual production of 19,600 barrels of oil equivalent per day according to bidding documents released last year by the state-run oil company, Garoupa is the largest production asset in Petrobras' expansive divestment portfolio. While a number of potential buyers took an initial look at it, including Brazil's Petro Rio SA , Anglo-French firm Perenco and British-based Premier Oil PLC, current low oil prices make the shallow water fields an increasingly hard sell, said the sources, who requested anonymity as they are bound by confidentiality agreements.

A British court on Wednesday approved Premier Oil's <PMO.L> plans to extend debt maturities by two years and raise up to $500 million in equity to buy North Sea assets from BP and others, but the deal depends on market conditions, Premier said. Activist hedge fund ARCM, which has a short position on Premier's shares of around 17% and holds around 15% of its debt, said it would appeal the court's decision, which delays any further action until the appeal is resolved. Oil prices <LCOc1> have slumped about two-thirds to around $20 a barrel since Premier in January first announced its acquisition plans and the financial arrangements linked to Wednesday's ruling.

Most North Sea oil and gas fields can make money at $30 a barrel, but stakeholders in the fields that have to be shut in the current price rout are set to face a huge bill for removing facilities like platforms and subsea infrastructure, Wood Mackenzie said. The North Sea between Britain and Norway, home of the Brent crude stream that underpins global oil prices, is one of the world's oldest and most expensive oil basins. Crude oil prices have posted four straight weeks of losses and dropped more than 60% since the start of the year.

Britain's oil and gas sector needs financial help to survive, industry body OGUK said, as the oil price crash triggered by the coronavirus and a Saudi-Russian price war means they may be unable to keep producing hydrocarbons in the North Sea. Benchmark oil prices on Wednesday fell to around $25 a barrel, their lowest level in 17 years, as measures to tackle the virus outbreak have had a drastic impact on demand.

Short positions on Tullow Oil shares hit a more than 15-month high on Monday, data from industry tracker FIS' Astec Analytics showed, in a sign of investors growing pessimism over the company's prospects ahead of its 2019 results on Thursday. Shares in Tullow have nosedived around 92% in the past six months on the back of weak output in Ghana, delays in East Africa, lower-than-hoped-for oil quality in Guyana and a dry well in Peru. Tullow is cutting around a third of its workforce, seeking to sell stakes in some of its assets and hunting for a new chief executive.
NEW YORK/LONDON, March 9 (Reuters) - Global stock markets plunged on Monday and crude oil prices tumbled by as much as a third after Saudi Arabia launched a price war with Russia, sending investors already spooked by the coronavirus outbreak fleeing for the safety of bonds and the Japanese yen. European stocks suffered hefty losses and a 7% slide in the S&P 500 at the open on Wall Street triggered a circuit-breaker put in place after the financial crisis a decade ago, halting U.S. stock trading for 15 minutes.
Global stocks plunged on Monday and prices for crude oil tumbled as much as 33% after Saudi Arabia launched a price war with Russia, sending investors already worried by the coronavirus fleeing for the safety of bonds and the yen. Saudi Arabia had stunned markets with plans to raise its production significantly after the collapse of OPEC's supply cut agreement with Russia - a grab for market share reminiscent of a drive in 2014 that sent prices down by about two-thirds.
British North Sea-focused oil and gas producer Premier Oil <PMO.L> has committed to carbon neutral operations at its fields by 2030, reporting a record free cash flow of $327 million last year, up around 30% and boosted by its flagship Catcher field. It said on Thursday it would develop its operated projects on a carbon neutral basis in respect of Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, referring to emissions from its direct operations and from the power supply it uses. Chief Executive Tony Durrant said greenhouse gas emissions that Premier could not eliminate from its operations through engineering would be covered by offset programmes such as planting trees near the oil and gas fields.
British North Sea oil and gas producer Premier Oil's 2019 profit after tax rose by just under a quarter to $164 million, it said on Thursday, its highest since at least 2014. Premier also committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions, saying it would be more than 65% carbon neutral by 2025 and 100% by 2030.
Mexican national oil company Pemex has begun signing contracts with oilfield service firms specifically invited to submit bids for a new batch of priority exploration and production projects, the state-owned company's chief executive said. CEO Octavio Romero said on the sidelines of an energy event in Ciudad del Carmen, home to numerous Pemex installations in the southern Gulf Coast state of Campeche, that the closed bidding process offers Pemex cost savings. Romero, a close confidant of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, has previously said Pemex aims to discover and develop 20 new oil and gas fields each year, targets viewed as extremely optimistic by industry analysts.
The dispute over who will run operations for a major offshore oil discovery in Mexico could eventually come down to the technical opinion of the country's independent oil regulator, according to one of the body's commissioners. Closed-door talks between national oil company Pemex and a private consortium led by U.S.-based Talos Energy over who will control operations of the so-called Zama project in the southern Gulf of Mexico have recently slowed, according to the Talos chief executive. If they deadlock, the National Hydrocarbons Commission or CNH would be called upon to provide the country's energy ministry with a legally binding technical assessment that would determine the project's operator, Commissioner Sergio Pimentel said in an interview.
The vote supporting Premier's management is a blow to hedge fund ARCM, which holds 15% of Premier's debt and has had a growing short position in its shares since 2017, currently around 17% of its stock, some four times higher than the average for London-listed firms. ARCM has fought a heavily publicised battle against Premier's plans, saying they were based on too-high commodity price assumptions, too-low decommissioning liability estimates and would make Premier too dependent on a weak gas market. Shares in Premier Oil spiked higher following the announcement, and by 1317 GMT they were up 3.1% at session highs.

The company is set to buy North Sea assets from BP <BP.L> and increase its stake in the Tolmount gas project, funded by a $500 million (380.40 million pounds) rights issue, but faces opposition from hedge fund Asia Research and Capital Management (ARCM), which has vowed to fight the plans. The indebted company won permission from a court last week to have its creditors vote on the planned acquisitions of North Sea assets for around $800 million. Premier Oil plans to hold a creditor meeting to vote on the scheme on Feb. 12, with a hearing to sanction the action decided by the vote expected to take place in March.
