    More surveying, more digging and scratching, but no oil.

    ProArgie 3 - and how many offshore wells were drilled in Arg waters for every commercial find one?
    Early days in the southern basin yet! And of the 4 drilled in the southern basin - 3 came up with varying levels of gas and oil - not bad so far.

    Oh, Oh, in Scotland reservoirs are scarce ... us go to “our” closest islands: Las Malvinas Argentinas ... and prove there!
    If I had my way, I would wait with torpedoes!

    The Leiv Eiriksson rig and referendum ploy in Malvinas have a identical result........waste of time, money and credibility.....pathetic.

    Why are you malvinistas concerned?
    lts our sea-bed, not yours.
    lts our cost, not yours.
    They are our ££££s, not yours.
    lf there is a loss, its our loss, not yours.
    And if there is oil, then its OUR OIL, not yours.
    ln fact you have no business here at all, move along please.
    @5 José Mal-de-dum-dum.
    What sort of torpedoes, niño?
    The Argentine ones that run in reverse? ha ha ha.

    There was an article on here that said the ARA submarine fleet, fleet not boat, had 17 hours submerged training time a month!

    So you know what you call an ARA submarine sitting on the sea bed near a rig?

    @5 Why? Do you think you could paddle one? Do tell us how many “vessels” you have equipped to launch torpedos. And how many of them are capable of staying “at sea” for more than 24 hours? Nearly half your “fleet” is in Africa and can't move.
    @6 Your concern is noted. Would you like to send a loan? A suitably-filled suitcase left at Mount Pleasant Airbase will be acceptable. Dollars or pounds sterling only please. For health and safety reasons. It wouldn't be possible for you to carry enough suitcases filled with pesos for more than a pace!
    @7 I know. It's sad, isn't it? Never mind. You'll be able to try again tomorrow. Look on the bright side. Another 200 years and you “might” not be a failure. Hold your breath, why don't you?

    “Another day, another failure.”

    But no country, not even the Falklands could fail as badly as Argentina.

    Nows the time to buy the stock, because it's gonna pay off when the oil comes ahore.
