Energy stocks advanced as much as 2.1% after oil prices surged more than 3% overnight, building on a nearly 5% rise the previous day as Omicron fears eased.

Woodside Petroleum gained as much as 2.2%, after the country's biggest independent oil and gas company said it would invest $5 billion in new energy products to curb its emmissions.

The merger of oil majors Santos and Oil Search received the approval of Papua New Guinea's competition regulator, sending shares of the companies up as much as 4% and 3.7%, respectively.
