- Xstate Resources Limited (ASX:XST)
Xstate Resources released its operational update on 6 April 2021, which didn’t seem to impress investors. The company’s Canadian oil production continued to increase, with Xstate’s share of oil production rising to 311 BOEPD, as of 4 April 2021. However, the company reported disappointing results of the Guinda and deeper seismic targets in Borba 1-7.
