West Texas Intermediate crude for March delivery lost $1.60 to $61.79 on the New York Merc, while Brent for April lost $1.35 to $65.51 (all figures in this para U.S.).

Turkey-focused Valeura Energy Inc. (VLE) gained 22 cents to $6.27 on 5.18 million shares, after releasing a deep gas resource estimate for its projects in Turkey's Thrace basin. According to an independent evaluation, Valeura has an unrisked resource of 10.14 trillion cubic feet of gas (or nearly 1.69 billion barrels of oil equivalent) below 2,500 metres at its Banarli and TBNG projects in the basin. "Unrisked" means that the resource might not actually be there; the company still needs to confirm its existence. Assuming a 51-per-cent chance of confirming and then commercially developing the resource, the estimate for Valeura's "risked" resource is 5.18 trillion cubic feet of gas (or 863.7 million barrels of oil equivalent).
