    What's the number of the Argentine arrest warrant for her? Interpol been informed?

    Although not a super major, Noble are big enough to be left alone by the RGs. If major fields are identified then the potential farm outs to the big boys will send the RGs into a jealous meltdown. Can't wait to see that happen.

    There has been a distinct lack of threats against United States Corporation Noble Energy as an Operator in the Falklands Oil exploration regime, perhaps Senor de la Tinko or other enlightened citizens of the Republica Grande could explain, does the Negro Viuda en la Casa Rosada, agree that they are doing nothing illegal or is she still seeking the courage to act on the issue?

    So it seems yet another brave American will defy CFK,
    This lady and Noble Energy will go to the Falklands and do business and sod Argentina and its threats,

    Yet somehow one wants to see Argentine officials try and stop her, and try to enforce argentina law on this American company, ,
    The humiliation to CFK would be hilarious,

    It will prove she only picks on the defenceless..

    Some Lady methinks, is it not possible for her to run as President of Argentina, I am sure she would make a better job of it as opposed to the present incumbant.

    Does Brazil own any assets in the U.S.?

    I'm sure that is quite a different matter.

    I don't get the impression she gives a flying f*** what Argentina think.

    Lol Marcos an amazing slide of 0.9% bwhahahah!

    As compared to the 30% inflation and 20% slide of the peso vs $ for our Argentine friends!

    Seriously Argentina is being proven for the thousandth time to be irrelevant by oil companies completely ignoring its worthless sanctions. Nobody cares!

    I'm still waiting to see HOW Argentina is going to enforce these so called 'sanctions'.

    It will be interesting to see how that plays out. ...

    Mrcos- as many experienced oil industry folks hve pointed out to you many times- twe are in a quiet lull period - no activity = no interest in shares = not surprisingly they slide a bit in value.
    It happens all over the world.
    Do wait until activity starts again in 2015 and 2016 etc. Then say come 1917 you can perhaps make a more accurate comment.

    Oil companies operating in the FALKLANDS ( share prices all in British Pounds)
    1) Argos 0.1263
    2) Borders and Southern 0.12
    3) Falkland oil and gas 0.2488
    4) Rockhopper Oil 1.05
    Come back in 1 years time and see the share price once they start drilling again.
    Let us look at the differential as regards the US$ and the Arg Peso ( if it exists in 2015 ) I mean Argentina devalued by 38% in Feb, I would not want my money being devalued by that much .

    I'm going to shift a little money into some of these companies.
    Long term there's a good chance of a decent dividend.

    I can see it now. 1/2 a dozen old geriatrics from the malvinas trying to dry hump Susan in the hopes she will kick some USD to the Island of old farts and Seagull shit.

    “We will not let US thrive in our land. Simple.”

    Wow. What will the U.S. do without Brazil to thrive on? Oh no, we're doomed!
    Who gives a shit about Brazil? Nobody. What would Brazil do without U.S. aid over the years? Me thinks Brazil needs the U.S.more than the U.S. needs Brazil.
    I think it's awesome Noble Energy is knee deep as a partner in the new Falkland Islands oil industry. Let the South Americans sit idly by bleating pathetically while the Falklanders, North America, and the Brits make some real money. And they wonder why they're known as the Third World. And going to stay that way for a long, long time apparently.....
