    Better get your story straight: Murphy Oil (MUR) says an exploration well drilled in the Browse basin off Western Australia will be plugged and abandoned after failing to find commercial amounts of gas, and expects to expense the well in Q2. Australian partner Santos (STOSF.PK) had said a few hours earlier that it considered the well a discovery. Total (TOT) holds a 50% interest in the well, Santos 30%, MUR 20%.

    UBS sees iron ore prices slumping at least 50% by Q3 to their lowest level since 2009, as China boosts production and global supply climbs. Australia is set to deliver ~80% of total new seaborne supply this year, most of it in H2 as China has “sufficient” ore and steel production declines.

    The risk is high that a tropical low off Australia's northwest coast will strengthen into a cyclone by Sunday as it moves closer to the Pilbara mining belt which produces nearly half of the world's seaborne iron ore. The area also is home to two of the country's largest gas production facilities, and oil from offshore fields contribute about a third of Australia's 390K bbl/day of output.
