08:37 EDTCIE, COP, APC, MROAnadarko, Cobalt rise following Gulf of Mexico oil discovery
Shares of Anadarko Petroleum (APC), along with those of its partners in a deepwater Gulf of Mexico exploration project, are higher after the companies reported a large oil discovery. Anadarko said its "Shenandoah-2" well encountered more than 1,000 net feet of oil pay, marking "one of Anadarko's largest oil discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico." In its own press release, Cobalt International Energy (CIE) confirmed the Shenandoah-2R appraisal well encountered more than 1,000 net feet of oil pay, compared to the Shenandoah-1 discovery well, drilled in early 2009, which encountered more than 300 net feet of Inboard Lower Tertiary oil pay. Anadarko stated it is the operator of the Shenandoah-2 well, and the previously announced Shenandoah-1 discovery well, with a 30% working interest. Co-owners in Shenandoah include Cobalt with a 20% working interest, ConocoPhillips (COP) with a 30% working interest, Marathon Oil (MRO) with a 10%working interest and Venari Resources with a 10% working interest. In a note to investors this morning, Wells Fargo estimated the new well could increase Anadarko's value by about $4 per share based on the value of two of the company's prior projects. In trading prior to the opening bell, Anadarko shares rose about $2.70, or 3.3%, to $86.00, while Cobalt gained 7.2% to $27.65 and ConocoPhillips advanced 1.4% to $60.12.

10:14 EDTCOPAnalyst says China trend good for oil equities
China's demand for oil has been stronger than expected and the trend should be positive for oil companies' stocks, research firm Bernstein wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Chinese oil imports reached a record high in April, rising 9% versus the same period a year earlier, Bernstein analyst Neil Beveridge reported. The imports have exceeded expectations and have been boosted by high gasoline demand, according to the analyst. The high gasoline demand in China, in turn, has been driven by a 50% year-over-year increase in the sales of SUVs, according to Beveridge. Analysts will respond to this trend by increasing their global oil demand estimates, he predicted. Oil prices are likely to rise in the near-term, providing a tailwind for oil equities, according to Beveridge, who identified InterOil (IOC) and China's CNOOC (CEO) as two of his favorite names in the Asian region. Other publicly traded companies in the oil space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). WHAT'S NOTABLE: Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India's Tata Motors (TTM), is launching its Range Rover Evoque SUV in China this fiscal year, but is having trouble ramping up production of the vehicle, Forbes reported last week. PRICE ACTION: in early trading, CNOOC was flat at $162.50 and InterOil slipped fractionally to $46.58.
