    A really good update. We have found the fault and delineated the Eastern Margin of SL and the new prospects. The next drill goes West and so is the right side of the fault with good sands likely to be present. A nice rise on this news today which is pleasing but we have two more drills that should bring this appraisal programme to (or near to) completion.

    What is even better is the volumetrics are from an external company, so it looks like the planning for CPR is well under way. One or two more drills (possibly three as these are quick drills) and then get the CPR prepared in early 2012.

    Am shocked - Marcos actually knows of the word duster! Question is does he actually know what one is and how to use it. Given some Argentines poster here (like marcos) view themselves as being highly impeccable and therefore immaculate, i'd be surprised if they have even seen a single bit of speck dust let alone done any dusting.

    But then they will probably struggle with the meaning of the words Impeccable and Immaculate since they are clearly lacking on IQ and education regardless as to how impeccable and Imacculate they view themselves as lol ;))

    Marcos - a duster that has given data for external analysts to increase the oil in place as well as recoverables. We now know the eastern margin of Sea Lion and I am very happy with it :-)

    We are all very happy, it is a very good sign to find wet sand.
    Now “Rockhopper Exploration” will export wet sand to the world.
    It seems that everything is a good sign: wet sand, oil becoming water , salt water, etc.
    Lets waste another U$ 100 million perhaps we can find fishes in the ocean.

    Sure Fido, a ponzi scheme that in 2016 will be responsible for filling my Jag up with Diesel.

    Destiny the well was not dry, it was water wet which has served a nice eastern margin to increase reservoir pressure making recoverability of the recoverables easier.

    A resource upgrade and a nice bit of data.

    How did the price change today Marcos?

    But take a piece of advice old chappy - when your scam pays out don't go near the Falklands or you will end up up in Stanley's polluted harbour with cement overshoes.
    But I suspect the islanders can already sniff a good scam - they have plenty experience of british carpet-baggers.

    You will see that Yahoo have a bug in their system when you look at the bid and ask. Also how can the last trade be made at 16:52 (at significantly less that the bid-ask) when the market closes at 16:30 and the Uncrossing Trade went through at 16:35 at a spread of 190.25 - 191.

    Think - You used to be a man who would acknowledge when he made an error. What happened? Has Marcos been rubbing off on you?

    SP tomorrow will be what the sp tomorrow will be and I would expect to see some profit taking as the price was significantly up today. No major concern of mine, I made my top up point at 174p and am happy with that until my target price to top slice.

    I am interested in the following.

    14/10-09, 14/10-10 (or a new exploration well), then the CPR, the drills for BOR and FOGL. Lots to look forward to for the brave and the patient

    Marcos - your thickness holds no bounds. Appraisal delineates the extent of the oil field and this result demonstrates the thickness of the sands which hold the oil. The oil has migrated west, this we know due to the previous drills. 10/14-9 will reveal the next peice of the jigsaw and is south west :-)

    Really geo, so the billions of barrels of oil found in the falklands would not be enough for me to run my Ferrari on, yet is more than enough to run millions of cars, machines and bycles and produce millions of cans of oil based products eh? Geo you really are so funny lol - So what does Argentina use to run its armies tanks on then, since you have no oil of your own? Ohh i know, you take advantage of your beef industry (Cow Shit) and the human waste that comes out of the mouths of other argentine poster here and turn it into biofuels for your armies tanks don't you? No didn't think so, but it would be worth it if you did - As its clear to the whole world that theres enough shit coming from argentina and argentine mouths to supply the world with biofuel for 1000's of years to come lol ;))

    Vauxhall is a British car manufacturer owned by General Motors where Opel is the German subsidiary of GM. So in legal terms Vauxhall and Opel are two seperate legal entities and Vauxhall therefore is still a british manufacturer owned by GM an american company which opel is the susidiary off. Therefore Opel, even though a sperate entity/Company is in control of GM and Vauxhall Companies/Entities. So its one company in control of others but the legal standing of Vauxhall is still as a British company/manufacturer. Hence why we have vuaxhall here in UK and not many Opels

    @50 Geo i said citroen does have cars in america that are still available i never said they still supplied sold or shipped new models to the US. So the link was correct evidence of Citroen cars being available for purchase in america (albeit 2nd hand etc)

    You asked why the auto brands do not exist in the US, i provided clear asnwers that they did exists or they never existed. You did not ask why they do not currently supply their cars in the country. There is a difference between asking about why their brands do not exist and asking why they do no supply or sell their cars in the US, Geo!

    Therefore my answer to your question was accurate as yes there brands are still available in america, with the expection of peugeot who i believe have never sold cars in the US, where as citroen and Renault did in the past, renualt being th most recent. though am certain peugeot brand cars are also available in the US, via individuals importing them etc.

    here is the another question about Marmite from me ,

    Why only British Marmite was sold in Copenhagen while
    Tasmanian beauty Mary Donaldson was marying Crown Prince Frederik?
    Why not Aussie Vegemite?

    attention, I didn' t use the -Vegemite- word in one of noun saying.

    I don´t know the reason, but ma might.

    There was a recent documentary that showed that, as a spread on bread, Marmite was too powerful a taste for foreign palates, so, in the land of Vindaloo, Marmite was being branded as a cooking flavouring-accessory.

    We Brits have the same problem with Patum Paperium, Gentlemens´ Relish (Harrods, Fortnum & Masons); just too powerful for foreigners.

    Gentlemen's Relish too powerful for foreigners?
    C'mon..............
    It’s as mild as those Elgarian green rolling hills on a late summer evening……

    A Surströmming sandwich….......... That’s the king of the excitotoxins.
    Especially if you sprinkle it generously with some Dave’s Ultimate Insanity sauce.

    Cher Think,
    A mug of vegemite mixed with hot water is great to dip your toast in on a cold winter's morning.
    geo,
    Maybe the French car companies are satisfied with the sales they have & do not need to enter the US market. No French cars in PNG or lndonesia either.
    Does it matter?
    What's all this have to do with oil exploration?

    @Think

    I Think you will find that Marmite is sold internationally. In fact it is sold in 25 countries worldwide, in Eurport, Far East, North America and Astraliasia. The reason why it is not sold in other coutries is probably because it simply is not popular, i.e. you either like it or hate it, and only a few countries have enough people that like its taste to warrant selling it in those coutries.

    At the end of the day its all about profitability - I would not sell my company products in a country where they do not sell well enough to make me a profit that makes it worthwhile supplying to that country. The same can be said about the makers of Marmite, why would they want to supply their product in a country that does not like its taste? They wouldn't. Plus there could be many legal reasons why they do not supply in other countries as well as cost reasons. Is it a conspiracy against British products? No think, that is just a figment of your imagination, and for someone that likes to sound intelligent like you do, i most say such a statement by you is pretty dumb.

    Regarding the comments on French cars in the USA, the North American market (U.S. and Canada) is already flooded with different brands as it is (domestic, Japanese, Korean, and German), and any new foreign makes would be unlikely to capture enough of a market share to make it worthwile to set up factories, parts warehouses, and dealerships here.
