    You know what the first rule of private investing is Think - DYOR!

    Have you had a look at the RKH RNS also released at 7am? Interesting 2011 ahead.

    DES and RKH drilling throughout year. ARG and BOR (potentially FOGL depending on rig share with BOR) for drilling by Q4 as well.

    Why not jump on board Think? Try it, you might like it!!!!

    This is just so boring.
    (No pun intended.)
    If this turns into a major find then great but do we really need an update every 5 minutes.

    Yep. There needs to be updates to inform the market of any information that may be regarded as price sensitive. During drilling this can happen day to day.

    I suppose it matters more when you have money on it.

    Merry Christmas to all!

    lol, what a waste of time, Exxon already told the US gov in a confidential cable, that there's not enough oil in the Malvinas to make it commercially viable
    But, by all means, the UK should go spend the last few billions of dollars it can borrow, to strike more WATER, lol.

    MasterBait, it was the US Geological survey that came out with the oil figures in the first place. So who is right, the US Government, EXXON or you?

    LOL, the companies are UK based.
    And yes, UK is spending money lobbying other countries and sending military ships down, to try to project their power/rule over the Malvinas.
    The funniest part is, even while UK tries its damnedest, Argentina is winning over countries instead, and UK is clearly losing this fight.

    And he told us of his life,
    In the land of submarines,

    So we sailed on to the sun,
    Till we found the sea green,
    And we lived beneath the waves,
    In our yellow submarine,

    Can any of the deluded daegos list the nations that have actually done anything of note to support Argentina?

    Exxon based there conclusion on what data? Was it the same source that said Iraq had WMD or the source that said that the UK would not be able to liberate the islands from the dirty junta.

    What is Sealion if not oil? Appraisal programme starts in Jan 2011.

    Master - You have no leverage and are a pathetic bunch of uneducated insignificants. Thankfully there is hope for collaboration if the more realistic people in your country start to have their voice heard. If you are not interested then stay in that s**thole that you came from.

    Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
    And doesn't know where to find them.
    Leave them alone and they'll come home,
    Bringing their tails behind them.
    Little Bo peep fell fast asleep
    And dreamt she heard them bleating,
    But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
    For they were all still fleeting.
    Then up she took her little crook
    Determined for to find them.
    She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
    For they left their tails behind them.
    It happened one day, as Bo peep did stray
    Into a meadow hard by,
    There she espied their tails side by side
    All hung on a tree to dry.
    She heaved a sigh, and wiped her eye,
    And over the hillocks went rambling,
    And tried what she could,
    As a shepherdess should,
    To tack again each to its lambkin.

    Ask those poor sailors who survived the Belgrano sinking about British subs! Many of their comrades died at the hand of your dictatorship.

    England is done. Done with Argentina that is. Done you good and proper. Now which nation has a habit of defaulting on it's debt. Which nation has found it impossible to get it's so called allies to do anything to disrupt the drilling (Brazil actually provided logistical support for the rig).

    Time forming to put up or shut up. 2011 a year of more drilling that you are powerless to stop.

    I hear they have given the Argentine armed forces Viagra to cure their impotence. Most of them refused to swallow it and instead put it in their eye. Apparently they only wanted to look hard.

    Argentina, the paradigm of what must be not done

    http://www.glifocidio.org/docs/soya/sa17.pdf

    Argentina, once known as the world’s best beef producer and the breadbasket of
    the world, today is now sometimes called the Oil Republic or Soya Republic, due
    to the way Argentina is producing GM Soya.
    The effect of this policy can be seen in the disappearance of thousands of farming
    units, with consequent massive rural exodus to the cities; a large increase in the
    area of land devoted to cropping at the expense of pasturing [grass-feeding] cattle;
    increase of oilseed production, mainly Soya at the expense of traditional crops;

    and you say England is done?

    I cast my mind back to the 60's when.

    we had strikes and riots.

    The IRA were setting of bombs on a delay basis.

    the coldest winter for 100 years.

    Heathrow was a mere airstrip.

    domestic abuse wasn't illegal.
