A few months ago I covered five oil and gas stocks currently in the ‘penny share’ range that could warrant a place on the research and watch list.  The five were included based on either potentially company making high impact exploration drilling and/or planned company changing production nearing.  The key aim and remit for the previous article was to try and identify an O&G company who could potentially one day be the next Premier Oil (LON:PMO), Afren (LON:AFR), Dragon Oil (LON:DGO) or even Tullow Oil (LON:TLW) and who needed a slice of luck from near term activities to set them on the right path.  The five stocks covered, Aminex (LON:AEX) who are currently drilling the Nyuni-2, to be followed by the Ntorya-1, San Leon Energy (LON:SLE) are about to spud the first of a 13 well 2011 programme, Ascent Resources (LON:AST) are currently drilling the Pg-10 and working to unlock one of the largest gas fields in Europe, Range Resources (LON:RRL) are involved with high impact exploration and increased production activity and Tower Resources (LON:TRP) are edging ever closer to the multi billion barrel potential structure spudding within the offshore Namibia licence, have all made good progress and are about to potentially enter a transformational period.
