    Esteemed Mr. Portman (with that fatalistic sense of humour)..., just for your kind info...:

    You say above..:
    - “The compensation win in Italian court is good news for fig to collect at source the long outstanding tax debt of £60 million plus £20 million mandatory penalty for late payment. lol”

    I say..:
    - 1) Rockflopper's compensation win (of ~190 million €uros) WAS NOT awarded by an Italian court but by a Private International Arbitration Court and DUE TO BE PAID just before Christmas 2022...

    - 2) It would certainly be very good news for the FIG(leaf) to collect at source the long outstanding tax debt of £60 million plus £20 million mandatory penalty for late payment...

    - Now..., having somewhat followed Rockflopper's trayectory..., their “Ombrina Mare Affaire” and residing in Italy as I currenty am..., I would dare to say that the chances of the FIG(leaf) collecting at source that long outstanding tax debt of £60 million plus £20 million mandatory penalty for late payment..., are as big as Rockflopper's chance of collecting that €190 million compensation win from them Spaghetti Guido's....

    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    Investor beware ! It is a PROJECT, in other words wild cat exploratory drilling. The chances of success are tiny, the capital requirements enormous. You might have better returns 'investing' in Las Vegas, Atlantic City or Macau. During 13 years as a wireline logging engineer, I surveyed plenty of wild cat wells, but recall only one eventual commercial success.

    That “FortHay” guy commenting above first name must surely be “KillJoy”...
    ANGLOS..., don't listen to that Argie loving Putin Propagandist Fifth Columnist...
    Just remember the recent Good Auld Times when 1(one) single Rockflopper share was ~£500!

    But..., don't take me word for it, ( I'm no wireline lumberjack engineer) GOOGLE it...!
    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    FortHay “ Investor beware ! It is a PROJECT, in other words wild cat exploratory drilling.”

    The wild cat exploratory drilling was done in 1998/2010/2015. 1998 was all dry, 2010 was mainly dry, 2015 had some failures and enough success to define a field that has the potential to produce for 20-25 years. It is a high-cost environment, but the risk is in the oil price staying above production costs for the life of the field, not in the finding of the reserves - that part has been done.

    Now that I mentioned bloody Kwarteng's Mini Budget....

    I have made abundantly clear on these pages..., my personal favourite was..., withouth the shadow of a doubt..., Mr. Jacob William Rees-Mogg...

    I considered all other possible or impossible opposing cantidates against him as immensely inferior...

    I wasn't wrong but..., I must admit..., that Ms. Least Trust is doing a magnificent job...

    So, Replacement Stink is still skulking in Italy eh!

    Not surprising really, considering what is happening in Argy Occupied Wallmapu.

    Doesn’t want to be caught in his Squat when RAM come calling, Molotovs in hand.

    ‘Neuquén, Río Negro and Chubut’

    ‘The territory must be retaken’

    Perhaps BA could ask the Americans if they would lend them some HIMARS, they seem to be very effective in Ukraine with retaking territory.

    ‘The land is being usurped by this self-styled Mapuche community’

    Usurped??? Usurped??? Really!!! Anyone would think they don’t belong there, never mind ‘imprescriptible’ rights.

    ‘They are a bunch of hooded criminals who have been plundering, robbing, and setting fire’

    Unlike the Creole Conquistadors who also massacred entire populations.

    ‘Take note of what is happening in Patagonia. It went from a pre-insurrectional activity to a rural guerrilla character’

    Perhaps RAM should ask the Ukrainians if they could spare some NLAW and STARStreak missiles, that would put an end to the Argy occupation of Wallmapu, very quickly.

    And the Kelpers would get their original and much nicer neighbours back.

    Go Facundo, Go.

    - The flabbergasting turnipidity of the Anglo Turnips like the one just above..., never ceases to amuse & amaze one...!

    - Putting a violent end to the white man's occupation of the WALLMAPU..., would certainly affect them windblown Malvinas Isles situation very quickly....

    -Not only would them Anglo Kelpers lose their lifeline to Punta Arenas..., but they could risk a veritable “Windrush” by the thousands......
    ...... from the extended Latino families of them ~300 or so Shilean Quelperos residents in them Isles...

    -I believe just the big latino family of a half-blood Kelperette as the honourable Leona R. would fill all free disponible accomodation in Puerto Estanley... :-))))

    - One can already smell the curanto....


    I can already smell the curanto....

    Well, Jamaica was once Spanish, so did that also automatically become Argy when Argentina became independent from Spain???

    After all it is in the Treaty of 1670 which Argentina claims include the Malvinas, which aren’t in the treaty???

    Yes, a return to the original inhabitants of Wallmapu would have very positive benefits for the entire region, no Argentina, no problem.

    And no one managing to swim 400 nmls to the Mystic Isles.

    ‘lifeline’ ha, in your dreams.

    Best you stay in Bella Italia, things are only going to get worse for the implanted population in the liberating of Wallmapu.

    The smell, is of BullSh*t.
