Amplify Energy Corp. (AMPY), an upstream company focused on the acquisition, production and development of oil and gas properties, has plunged by 32.17% in the premarket trading session. As a result, AMPY stock is trading at $3.90 at the time of this writing. The decline seems to be due to the oil spill in the southern Californian region. On Friday, AMPY stock jumped some 8.08% during regular hours and closed the day at $5.75.

Reason for decline in AMPY stock

Today, AMPY announced that on 2nd October 2021, one of its subsidiaries, namely Beta Offshore, observed oil sheen at about 4 miles off the coast in southern California. Consequently, it notified coast guards regarding that and initiated its oil spill and prevention and response plan. The company said that it had sent a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to the site to investigate and besides, to attempt to confirm the releasing point. As a precaution, the company said that all of its production and pipeline operations in Beta Field have been temporarily shut down. Amplify Energy said that it is working cooperatively with Coast Guards, the California Department of Fish, and Wildlife’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response (CDFW-OSPR).
