Oil stocks were down on a weaker crude price as traders disregarded a sharp drop in US crude stockpiles on Thursday night. BP slid 4 to 567½p. Royal Dutch Shell was hit by news that it will be made to foot the bill for huge cost overruns at the Sakhalin-2 oil and gas project in Russia together with its two Japanese partners. It retreated 12p to £17.90. BG Group, which on Thursday announced it had bought a US power plant, lost 4½ to 693p.

Cairn Energy, however, bucked the market trend, clawing back most of Thursday’s losses to finish up 21p at £17.99 and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
