    Promising start except for the news that Argentina is going to continue with taking legal action against companies involved.

    Just like they have been for the past 3 or 4 years.

    Was it him or one of the other deadbeats that said Argentina should just torpedo the oil rig? That'd be fun to watch; they'd most likely just ending up blowing themselves up in their own submarine. Maybe that's why they insist they are no military threat. They mean no competent military threat.

    One river class frigate on permanent patrol cannot protect these rigs along with the islands and wider territories. We do need to to think about that.
    We know that when the oil starts flowing it is going to send those Argies into a whole new dimension of crazy, we should expect some kind of sabotage mission, be it government led or freelance.

    “Meanwhile Argentina announced it was renewing its legal offensive against British efforts to explore and produce oil and gas off the Falklands/Malvinas Islands and will try to send to court the heads of the companies who are leading the efforts.”

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah-ohh dear my ribs hurt sooooo bad.

    Renewing it' s legal offensive?

    Has it started?

    Who's been arrested, deported to Argentina by Interpol, tried and imprisoned yet?

    Malvanistas, perhaps you could inform us on this matter as we've all been waiting patiently since 2010 for something to happen-is an arrest going to be made in the next 25 years?

    the important thing here is what the BIG oil companies have to say.
    and they give a shite for that tiny little well with no commercial oil.

    This confirmation of oil discovery will no doubt have Argentina running in ever increasing circles because they know that the Falklands are poised to become the successors of what Argentina was drilling for in the late sixties early seventies . They found large quantities of oil back then very close to our shores and it is today the only reason they are renewing their sovereignty claims. I would be willing to make a bet that 50 years from now when the vast majority of the new oil is extracted Argentina will drop their claim because they will have nothing worth taking. By Then their Country will be a skeleton of what it is today and they probably already know that. Meanwhile Falkland Islanders it's party time. Here's to our future.

    Anyone remember the last time something was discovered as commercial anywhere in Argentina?
    Anywhere?

    Last I heard the gov't is paying oil companies to drill.
    Paying them a lot.
    But what happens when the U$ run out?

    I also heard that cans of propane went up 450% this week because the subsidies ran out.
    I think I told you stupid Rgs to start hording these cans 2 yrs ago.
    You can thank me for a great return on your investment

    Lunatic

    I realise, with your limited intellect, that reading a share price graph is beyond your ability.

    Shares go UP and DOWN! Did you get that? Why is it that you never post the rises in FOGL of which there has been many? Could it be you are just an embittered old twat unable to smile and enjoy life anymore?

    Very often when shares are UP investors cash some in to 'take profits' and usually buy the same amount or more back at the dips to increase their holdings of 'good' shares.

    I know you cannot grasp these concepts but do try harder.

    Glad to be of help.

    (10) My dear Kelperabout....

    The Zebedee well was drilled soooo close to the Sea Lion field that it would have been a true miracle if they hadn't hit any oil...

    That was the cunning plan from the beginning...

    Hardly a “Discovery” though... as the Market perfectly knows and acts upon..., valuing FOGL's shares ~ 10% LOWER on “discovery” day!!!

    Anyhow..., you are quite right that we Argies will use this renewed Engrish Piracy Act to show the International Community what you squatting Engrish in the South Atlantic are all about...

    13 Think . What the Zebedee well was drilled for was to confirm some distance from the Sea lion well that there was in fact a very large acreage of oil. This strengthens their case because they now know it does exist in very commercial quantities. As for a piracy act you are way of the mark. Remember Argentina did not exist as a Country when Britain settled these islands. The only act of piracy is the one your corrupt leaders are trying to do now is steal from the Falkland people just like your lot did when the stole land from the indigenous people so long ago.

    No matter how much you threaten us we are here have been for a very long time 250 years as it happens and we are not about to go anywhere anytime soon.

    If Argentina had of had a brain back in the seventies when they actually found oil existed so close to our shores was to have befriended us . Instead you decided to invade us because you could not wait just a bit longer . We had a serious wake up call on that day and trust me it is never going to happen again. Your lot blew it and we are a much hardened people who are determined to remain British and live the life we choose and Argentina does not fit in with our Plans at this moment in time. Maybe fifty years down the road we may be interested in running your shattered remnants of your Country but it would have to be renamed Falkland Land.
    Oh and thank you for your kind words I am indeed having a very happy Easter because I am living my dream as my fellow Islanders are also doing . Have a great day yourself though I feel the great may not feature as high for you as it will for us.

    @8. Offensive from the first word. But just think what interesting conversations you could have if you weren't such a dumbshit! You could discuss the worth of 25 metres of oil spread over, say, 1000 square miles. And 17 metres of gas over the same area. Do you think the gas is over the oil? Do you think that Sea Lion is draining oil out of argieland?
    @13. Haven't seen any argie prosecutions. Here are some little tips. The Falkland Islands are NOT part of argieland. The Falkland Islands have NEVER been part of argieland. So the first problem Filmus has is to prove is that argie laws could be applied. Strangely, argieland has NEVER tried to prove that. It wanders around gobbing off and NEVER proves anything. Going to drag Betts out, are you? He's not that credible, you know. Seems he left the Falklands, and his wife and children, because he was shagging an argie maid. See, it'll be a bit different in a law court. He may need to explain his 18 May 1978 letter to the Falkland Islands Times. Strange how he reckons he supported argieland from 1976. There will be a lot of questions. I can think of a few myself based on
    'Betts claims that he began to question British sovereignty over the Falklands when he spoke to an Argentine tourist about the issue in the 1970s. He started studying the history of the Falkland Islands in 1976, concluding after two years of research that “Argentina had absolute rights over the island territory”.
    'The reasons and circumstances surrounding Betts' departure from the Falklands are disputed. Betts claims he was forced to leave by British forces, with the support of many Falkland Islanders, as a result of his support for Argentina during the war'. Is that right? Why would he be forced to leave when he could just be shot as a traitor? He's a fugitive, isn't he? Perhaps he could be 'snatched' and tried in a proper court. We have wonderful interrogation methods these days!

    I thought this was Think but then he posted..

    If he only had a brain!
    An Argentinian shepherd was found dead after having sex with a scarecrow that he had dolled up in a wig and lipstick – and manned up with a strap-on sex toy, according to The Daily Mirror.
    Neighbors reported a foul odor emanating from the San Jose de Balcare home of Jose Alberto, 58, whose rotting remains were found by police next to his stuffy date.
    “I initially thought there were two bodies but then I realized one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig,” said Rodolfo Moure, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office. “It was lying next to the deceased and had a six-inch strap-on penis.”
    The scary scene showed no signs of violence between the lovers, he added.
    “We are working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow,” Moure said. “We are now waiting the results of an autopsy.”
    The apparently reclusive Albert lived alone and didn’t have a cellphone.

I have watched the chat on here for years with people talking up the SP and saying how rich we are all going to be. I wont mention the £20 Essex bloke but after waiting over 6 years for today am totally confused.
    Have we all been robbed or something or is it because oil prices are so low that this find does not shift the SP.
    Even SKY news only commented on this for about 15 seconds with nothing more than FOGL have found oil.
    Everyone on here wants to make money yet after the most positive news ever we have all lost in value”

    Paulie- you still don't get it do you- Premier - who are running these 4 well drills in charge- are oil producers in various parts of the world - including recently acquired exploration rights in Brazil.
    The last 2 wells - very deep 60 days each - are run by Noble Oil US - again producers in their own right in various parts of the world.
    Exxon-Mobil-Texaco-Shell etc are not the only companies capable of developing oilfields idiot!
    And very sensibly any of the above who have investment in Argentina re keeping off the Falklands for the time being!

    Marcos-Think - yes - with these low oil prices there is little shareprice excitment at such an early stage - some months yet and more wells before the chart is likely to become a bit clearer as to what is where etc.

    'a huge environmental risk' he says. This is when the exploration is being conducted under the auspices of the FIG.

    But, if Argentina was conducting the exploration it would be different of course, no risk attached to that - except the risk of millions being lost in paying graft and corruption to thieving Argentine officials.

    45. The pollution and general lack of care for the environment is shocking to someone from a civilized country. Many times I was in Tigre seeing the slum dwellers swimming in black, yes black smelly oily water. Swimming, young kids with their mothers watching.
    If you go to the South were the oil is produced or refined there's a thin layer of oil on the beach and water and it smells chemically.
    Even their “beautiful” natural parks are full of graffiti and garbage.
    Like BA.
    Take a quick tour of La Boca and take a good long smell. It is one of the most disgusting river basins I have ever seen. Black and filthy and for 100+ years everyone living along it dies of cancer. Toxic and its right in the city.

    Or take a plane going south and look out the window, you'll see black nastiness coming out of BA flowing into the ocean. Black and nasty.

    Yes YB I have seen a lot there... more in fact than many of the Rg'... you are not wrong... most countries in SA are much the same... you should see the main harbour in Rio... Cesspool... Lake Maracaibo the same.... The worst though is a toss up between the jungles of Peru and/or Ecuador ... Oil flowing freely into the streams and small rivers .... For me it is a sociological thing... the populous just doesn't care... That said the GOM has suffered also at the hands of those (both sides of the border) who are too concerned with filling their own pockets... a shame really...

    So what about the Twat Paul... seems to have a good grasp of English though presumably an Rg who is terribly bitter about the current situation in his country and the rest of us making lite of it....

    OH ... BTW what about this move to hold Citi hostage... I can't figure out what sort of logic is employed there... surely bound to backfire and kick them in the teeth...

    There are no animals left in the USA or the UK. All extinct. Acid rain is the worst in those two countries and the rest of Europe.

    The state of the “environment” is an embarrassment in those countries. There is no “environment” left in the UK. All original species, wiped out. The forests? Mostly gone, just like in Haiti.

    In the cities? New York smells like a massive urinal and London has the world's biggest globs of fat in the sewers.

    Funny you think you two are fooling anyone.

    Paulie- well as I suspected once faced with facts and reality you could not answer could you? Poor little Paulie.

    50 troll - have not visited uSA but I hear there are still bears- Puma and Coyotes about in places for a start. In England - Plenty of wild deer- hedghogs-
    and am sure there are other animals also.
    The River Thames in London - salmon and trout can now caught there so cannot be too dirty can it? Red Squirrels are still about all over the country. Foxes, badgers - plenty of wild natural animals.
    OK the wild boar have gone - several centuries ago I think!
    Plenty of old native forests still about. Plenty more being replanted with indigenous trees as well.

    Maybe you should think again.

    Didn't someone set fire to some ancient forests in Argentina a short time ago?

    Hilarious!!!!! - never been to the UK have you that's obvious

    @51 Islander1

    Actually, you're wrong about the wild boar - apparently some escaped about 20 years ago and now they are becoming a problem in the Forest of Dean and the New Forest particularly, so much so that I believe there was a plan a couple of years ago to cull them but I don't know if it ever took place.

    Apart from this little baby that got stuck in the outdoor stopcock pipe...I could just touch it with my fingertips, with my full arm down the pipe, but could not grab it because of the quills....
    2 hours to dig it out....does it look happy...I think it does....
    Living proof you are wrong....

    53- yes I recall hearing about that now, cannot recall the outcome though - but wild boar (farmed) does feature on restaurant menus at times.

    Why do I have to “go” to the UK when I can corroborate it all with Google Earth?

    What version of Google Earth do you have. The resolution on my version does not show wildlife anywhere on Earth. I would be delighted to have your version.

    It must mean that all the Wildlife programs about Britain must be CGI generated and I have been deluded into thinking that the pictures I have taken over 55 years have been the figment of my imagination..
    I am indebted to you for this revelation and startling insight which we have come to expect from you. Please inform David Attenborough that he has got it all wrong.

    Just proves the the excellence of the Argentine education, he obviously means Google which no doubt will lead to Wikipedia. God they are dumb aren't they? I am surprised that he can even get on this site, must have help from someone.

    Actually you are both wrong....
    ”Sometimes people browsing the African continent in Google Earth will be surprised to notice a tiny image and zoom in close to find a really high resolution image of a village or animals. (Yes, shown here is a screenshot from Google Earth of an aerial photo of some camels)”
    There are herds of elephants...etc...
    Also if you use street view there are thousands of cases of animals being seen,,,,

    Mrs Think appears to have morphed into Benny Hill.
    Originally Mrs Think believed that our territorial waters only contained ....well......................water.
    Must be the strain of realising she was mistaken and that high quality oil has been discovered in abundance and the Falkland Islanders are going to be richer than Argenweena by 2020.
    Keep your legs crossed Mrs Think, this campaign has only just begun and you need to pay attention!

    @50. Shame, isn't it? Tell us about the indigenous PEOPLE of south east South America that you murdered. Meanwhile, I can see many birds. I can identify, by sight, foxes, badgers, squirrels, otters, hedgehogs, deer and so forth. Seems that you lie a lot.

    Think... from the Telegraph... to explain the drop in the share value for FOGL.


    Falkland Oil and Gas [LON:FOGL] owns the largest share, or 40pc, in the successful prospect called “Zebedee”, while the other partners, Premier Oil [LON:PMO] and Rockhopper [LON:RKH], own 36pc and 24pc respectively. Analysts from BMO Capital Markets estimate the new find could contain about 50m barrels of oil and be worth as much as 10p per share to Falkland Oil and Gas.

    Shares in the oil explorers initially moved sharply higher on yesterday’s announcement, but fears that the companies may not have enough cash to complete the full exploration schedule sent shares lower by the close of trading. ”

    For a person who has a username that suggests he/she has intelligence, I would look for the meaning and reasoning for something happening, instead of just spouting something as face value. “Think” next time, Think.
