    Must be disappointing for the old wrinkly and his compatriot naysayers.

    I threw a potato out that was rotten last week in the garden. The mold is advancing on that also. Doesn't mean it is any good.

    I said in another post and maintain, without the participation of Argentina , can not extract a single barrel marketable. The squatters, begin to accept that so dependent on their hated Argies are..

    So global data, uh???
    Now, who are they?
    A insignificant chilote firm.
    What can they know about oil industry and even more, what can they know about Argentina?
    Nothing for sure.
    After humpback failure you can say that the whole thing was a sad joke

    The considerable Falklands oil reserves, whether or not exploited in the near term, are just one more in a large number of reasons why the probability of the islands ever becoming Argentine is indistinguishable from zero.

    @4 Do tell us why you think that the FALKLANDERS will not extract a single barrel marketable. You do know what an FPSO is don't you? Well I will tell you. It is a Floating Platform Sorage and Offloading vessel.That means the oil is stored on the vessel and a tanker will pull alongside and be filled with oil. The tanker will then go to the country that has said they will buy the oil. So tell us old sage, what has Argentina got to do with it.

    Looks good for the Falkland Islands. Oil in the ground is like money in the bank.

    Turd Island is once again unintelligible. Brainwashed Spaniard squatters often suffer like that.

    # 4 I fully accept that you have said that. The problem is you are wrong. Have a nice day.

    “gov. changes in Arg., add to favourable conditions supporting Fulklands Islands ”industry“ about oil” according to Mister Lara.
    Those resources are part of arg sovereign dispute of Malvinas. That is in the constitution, thanks God.
    Besides, saw in the supermarket arg is importing from Uk, washing clothes liquid, we can make lot of business with that. I prefer arg products, they are better.

    @ 10 “....arg is importing from Uk, washing clothes liquid,....”

    -- Yes, detergent manufactured in Argentistan using a formula developed in the UK reflects the extent of the high-tech industry in Bs As.

    The Argento dish-washers' union in the UK, the largest unskilled labour dish-washing body in the world, specifically requested it.

    no no it came from uk, some new capsules, it said imported from uk, in the propaganda it said origen of the product: uk. not made in arg.
    You can buy them here, must be more cheap for you. Is in a very famous parfumerie, all over the country, sure in Ushuaia too.

    Malen, don't get any of that UK dishwashing detergent on you ! It will take away your argentinidad, leaving you sparkling clean and honest.

    I add that the propaganda tells always the origen of the products, and I read this of cloth washing capsules (only 3 or 5 capsules!), during the kirchnerite gov.
