    @2 Frank

    I was just about to say that. Argentina always say that someone has 'signed' up to YPF, and it actually turns out that they haven't.

    Perhaps they really believe that if they say it's happened, then it will happen.

    However, if the Russians do sign, they will expect a full return on their investment. No capped prices, and should CFK try to steal their investment, then Putin would be very, very angry with them, and another of CFK's so called 'allies' will disappear.

    Isn't Gazprom primarily a natural gas company and a crude driller? I thought they are trying to extract crude from shale? And Gaxprom will be able to import natural gas as well as I read in other news reports......don't they want to eliminate that? This is the know down deal....who got knocked down?

    Ever notice the “other” o/g company NEVER has a quote in any of the articles? Hmm wonder why?

    Just remember, bullet train to Rosario, yeah sure, they can't even keep their other trains from falling off the tracks!

    Apparently the Ruskies have agreed to sell LNG to Argentina but that's about it. Hope they get their money up front.

    CFKC definitely does not want to upset Putin, unless she likes a nice cup of plutonium laced tea.

    YPF just had to borrow $ from the treasury to pay bonuses!!! I don't see anyone queuing up to do business with a failing (failed) company/country.

    @ 7 ElaineB

    That would be Polonium. Easy mistake to make with Polonium being 84 in the Periodic Table and Plutonium - 94 : )

    All together now……..

    ♫ There's holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium
    And phosphorous and francium and fluorine and terbium
    And manganese and –mercury, molybdinum, magnesium,
    Dysprosium and scandium and cerium and cesium
    And lead, praseodymium, and platinum, plutonium,
    Paladium, promethium, potassium, polonium, and
    Tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium, (inhale)
    And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium. . ♫

    @11 reminds me of

    A proton walks into a bar looking perturbed (there's also a quantum mechanical joke in there somewhere but we'll keep it simple for now) and the barman asks him what's up. The proton complains he's missing an electron

    “Are you sure”? asks the barman

    “Yes - I'm positive!”

    Sorry - waaay off topic!

    @ lol @ 11 and 12.

    Yeah, polonium, plutonium, polonium, plutonium, let's call the whole thing off.

    I'd settle for polonium in CFKC's tea.
