Let’s know the reasons behind the decline in the price of the 3 penny stocks- GGE, OSX and DTM.

Grand Gulf Energy Limited (ASX: GGE)

The exploration and production company closed Monday, shrinking by 30.952% after it updated that the present drilling operations at the Jesse-2 well in SE Utah has been successfully concluded. The well was successfully deepened, and wireline logs were acquired across the entire 192-foot gas column.

The underbalanced drilling operations met all technical delivery requirements and permitted the testing while drilling of geologic gas flow to the surface with no observed water production. Monitoring of geological gas flow while drilling returned helium concentrations up to 0.9% helium.

Jesse-2 well encountered lower secondary porosity than that observed in Jesse-1A well and the Doe Canyon field.  Jesse-2 has been suspended for potential future well remediation/stimulation to be undertaken after the drilling of Jesse-3.

GGE has started planning for the permitted Jesse-3 well which will target the reservoir play fairway in the Jesse Helium Field.

Along with drilling Jesse-3, stimulation /workover programmes at Jesse-1A and or Jesse-2 will be undertaken. It will be followed by preparations to tie in to start production.

Osteopore Limited (ASX: OSX)

The medical technology company ended Monday’s trading session, reducing by 20% to AU$0.076. The decline in its share price came after it updated the non-renounceable pro-rata entitlement offer to raise up to nearly AU$2.63 million (before costs) on 17 April 2023.

The entitlement offer provided eligible stakeholders with the opportunity to subscribe for one 100% paid ordinary security (new shares) for each four 100% paid ordinary securities held on the record date, at an issue price of AU$0.085 a new share, with 1-free attaching quoted option for each one new share subscribed for.

The new shares and quoted options applied under the entitlement offer will be issued on 24 April 2023, with normal trading of new shares and quoted options anticipated to start on 26 April this year.

The entitlement offer received robust support from eligible stakeholders, who applied for new shares and 20,293,604 quoted options, raising nearly AU$1,725K (before costs), pursuant to their entitlements.
