Why Shares In OILEX LTD. (UK) Jumped Today

oil rigAlthough we don’t believe in timing the market or panicking over every stock fluctuation, understanding how a business is performing, competing and changing is vital to sensible investment.

What: Shares in Oilex (LSE: OEX) lifted by more than 14% in early trade this morning following the release of the oil and gas exploration and production company‘s quarterly report.

5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!

According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…

And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential...

So what: Net oil production more than doubled from the first quarter, to 665 barrels (Q1: 244 barrels). 355 of these came from the Cambay field in the Indian state of Gujarat, while 310 barrels came from the Sabarmati field, also in Gujarat.

Oilex also stated that it has made an insurance claim worth USD$1m, associated with the failure of the frac tree components at its Cambay-77H well. There were no ‘lost time incidents’ recording on this well during this quarter, however, which helped boost the production figures.

Now what: Monday’s announcement that higher than expected light oil/condensate was encountered at the Cambay-77H well, and is now being recovered to surface and separated for sale, drove the shares up 40%. Today’s further leap in the share price means that investors who held the shares at the end of last week are close to seeing their investment become a double-bagger in less than seven days.
