LONDON (Reuters) - Premier Oil (PMO.L)
”The London-listed firm, whose operations stretch from the Falkland Islands to Indonesia, reported a worse-than-expected $210.3 million (135 million pounds) loss on Thursday”
shitty company they are.
@2. I can tell you what is happening. Shortly, the rig will be lowering a long metal pipe with a drill bit on the end. Then there'll be a period of gouging a deep hole in the sea bed. Then there'll be a period of assessment. So you'll need to wait for the coring.Feb 27th, 2015 - 12:33 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

FFS READ the statement by Durrant.
record production and operating cash flow in 2014
Where does it say anything about the P&L account?
Do you understand the term 'depleted cash flow analysis'?
No, I didn't think you did.

Thanks for that. I have been invested since 2009 in the Falkland oilers so do know a little about drilling in fact I worked for Halliburton in Libya years ago. They are an Oil service company if you are not familiar with them.
What about Noble Paul? Are they a shitty company too? And also Edison are part of this campaign...Edison are part of EDF....a super major....are they shitty too?Feb 27th, 2015 - 04:21 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Laugh my arse off.
Pity Paul doesn't worry about Argentina's financial records as much as he does FOREIGN companies operating in a FOREIGN country.Feb 27th, 2015 - 05:32 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

I can't see how Bad Vines/ Sour Grapes can be enjoyed, unless you like drinking vinegar-however the word Malvinas is an excellent substitute for Argentina as it can be translated as Sour Grapes-sums Argentina up perfectly.

All that important equipment needs protection against international brigandage!
Perhaps, a RN nuclear attack submarine should be permanently on station.
Good luck dear Falklands!
