Drilling Down 2018

After several years in the doldrums, 2017 was the year when the tentative recovery in the fortunes of the AIM listed oil and gas sector gathered momentum. 

In our seventh edition of Drilling Down, our annual review of the performance of AIM listed oil and gas companies, we examine how they have fared in comparison to the overall AIM market and the oil price, assess the trends in the number and market caps of AIM listed oil and gas companies, and review the level of fundraising activity in the sector.  We also include our thoughts on the outlook for certain aspects of the oil and gas sector going forward.

Drilling Down 2017

2016 saw a number of indications that, after several years in the doldrums, the downturn in the oil and gas sector may be ending and a new more positive cycle may have started.

In our sixth annual review of the performance of AIM listed oil and gas companies, we examine how they have fared in comparison to the overall AIM market and the trends in oil price. We also assess the trends in the size, number and market caps of AIM listed oil and gas companies and review the level of fundraising activity in the sector. We provide some useful insight in to how oil and gas companies can take advantage of the positive developments whilst still protecting themselves from any ongoing market turbulence.

Drilling Down 2016

2015 was another very difficult year for AIM listed oil and gas companies, hit by both the continuing decline in oil prices and little if any investor appetite for the sector.

In our fifth annual review of the performance of AIM listed oil and gas companies, we examine how they have fared in comparison to the overall AIM market, FTSE AIM 100 and the trends in oil price. We assess the trends in the size, number and market caps of AIM listed oil and gas companies and review the level of fundraising activity in the sector. We also provide useful insight in to how oil and gas companies can seek to protect themselves and weather the storm until market sentiment returns in their favour.
