  • Premier exit Kenya by Doodlebugger
    Fri, 29 May 2015 10:51:00 GMT

    Premier pull out of Block 2B, in the NE bordering Somalia, after drilling the unsuccessful Badada well

    Following from Rig Zone:

    Africa-focused oil and gas exploration company Tower Resources plc announced Thursday that Lion Petroleum Inc., the wholly-owned Kenya-based subsidiary of Taipan Resources Inc. and Operator of Kenya's onshore Block 2B, has revealed that Premier Oil plc have exercised their right to exit the joint venture with effect from April 30. Premier Oil's withdrawal from the joint venture will lead to a pro-rata adjustment in Lion and Tower’s working interests in Block 2B, with the former holding 66.66 percent and the remaining 33.34 percent held by the latter for the remaining six months of the current license phase.

    Kenya's Ministry of Energy has earlier agreed to a six month extension to the First Additional Exploration Period to Nov. 30 for the partners to complete the assessment of the remaining prospectivity of Block-2B, and as a result of the ongoing legal action relating to the temporary injunction served upon Lion, Premier, and other named parties that had prevented operations over the majority of the block.

    “Tower has increased its interest in Block 2B at nil cost and the six month extension to the First Additional Exploration Period will provide joint venture partners the time necessary to finish a thorough assessment of the prospectivity on this large 2,107 square miles (5,458 square kilometers) block,” Tower CEO Graeme Thomson commented in the press release

    Clutching at straws again. Discussion is a healthy aspect of the decision making process. It doesn't sound like much of an argument to me.

    "Mugerwa said although the oil companies prefer the southern route, it will be up to the heads of state to approve an appropriate route. Asked why the oil companies preferred the southern route ahead of the northern route, Tullow said all routes were viable." By brummell

    "Capital continue to increase their holding in Tullow. They now have a holding in excess of 13% of Tullow's shares:-
    .... do what ?? Maybe some shorting and make monies ??"


    A sure sign of desperation is desperate arguments. Why on earth would any honest shareholder buy a share and then short it to undermine their own investment?? Buying before selling isn't shorting. Shorting is selling before buying.

    A devious manipulator might buy and then lend the share out for shorting so that he could buy even more at a lower price before recalling his lent stock when the good news breaks and the share price rockets.

    TLW's share price is currently linked to the oil price, but with leverage. The lower order of manipulator with access to lots of other people's money can manufacture that leverage by selling on the highs and buying back on the lows, trading in a manner that exaggerates the effect of those actions at the tail end of their trading. The manipulation comes in by stimulating volatility. This article describes "Short and Distort" along with "Pump and Dump". Imho we see both in TLW, most probably perpetrated by the same people:


    Currently the oil industry makes an easy target. The moral is, DYOR and stick with it.

    Interesting that the US DoJ has acted against the organised crime in FIFA. There's a parallel there. No matter how long the methodical genuine investigations take or how many pseudo investigations try to cover up the corruption, when justice does come it comes out of the blue.

    It`s a good time for companies that have cash to buy oil assets at cheaper prices, but there is no shortage of companies that took a lot of debt on when oil was over $100. A lot of lenders will swap debt for equity in companies that can`t raise equity themselves. By Cashman103
  • Hague & London – comment on Guyana, well next year? by Doodlebugger

    Hague & London – comment on French Guyana, well next year?

    Below lifted from a presentation by Andy C recently re H&L’s activities. Looks like there might be a well in French Guyana next year:

    Guyana, Maritime
    • Evaluation and Interpretation of well data (ES) and seismic (Central Area)
    • Potential for one well in 2016 to test Central Area

    Further down in the presentation


    it references drilling the NW area, as opposed to the Central Area mentioned above – I think they are the same place. I don’t see any reference in the Tullow stuff to a future well in FG, just Spari in Surinam?

  • Director and Major Shareholders by carliol

    Good Evening Everyone,

    Following on from the previous post in which Capital have increased their shareholding in Tullow. It's interesting to note some of the major shareholders in Tullow.

    Aiden Heavey is on record as stating that Tullow is not for sale but comparing his shareholding with that of Capital, Genesis etc, I don't think his opinion would count for much if a realistic offer were made.

    I'm not sure when the following list was compiled but it does show the amount of Institutional Investment in Tullow. There's continual speculation about a take over bid for Tullow but to date nothing concrete has materialised. With Tullow's share price at it's current level and lots of speculation about mergers and acquisitions in the oil and gas industry I wonder of a bid could be forthcoming?

    Given the amount of trouble in North Africa and the Middle East, it makes Tullow's acreage in Sub Saharan Africa look like a haven of tranquillity. The Majors aren't replacing production with discoveries so Tullow could be an attractive proposition for a would be predator.

    RobeTRADER you spoke too soon sp is climbing the price of oil just had a little jump this evening lets hope the momentum can keep up, be patient. commodities are volatile hence you can make a decent profit trading them. oil has gone down. this has simply reflected that. I do believe this has great long term potential, but currently im not buying anything else way too interested in the Steam train that is SXX CHOO CHOO lol

    for some reason? I'm sorry, because you've posted so much your words certainly are more meaningful, it's in a downward trend, and it's fallen a LONG WAY, any sign of that stopping? As a boy my Mum told me to never catch a falling knife, I suggest you heed that advice in my opinion, which is all it is. Now my posts have made doule figures I definitely feel more vindicated by what I'm saying! LOL
  • Robe trader by Hammerstime
    Fri, 29 May 2015 06:26:14 GMT

    I think this share looks strong. Measures have been taken by tlw to 'cut their cloth' according to the current oil pricing. It's down about over 2/3's from its high. Pipeline looks good. I guess robe trader either has a short or too much time on his hands bad mouthing shares in which he has no financial interest? I'm not giving him a dressing down, more of a dressing gown :)

    Says the guy who has only posted 9 times. Share does not look weak at this price, what is controlling it is the price of Oil, so if that drops so does this.
  • RobeTrader by Kaimirza
    Thu, 28 May 2015 14:18:38 GMT

    I wouldn't say down, more volatile. At least there is more clarity with the TEN project now. And TLW may actually be preparing to bid for an entity for acquisition the future doesn't look dire and there is good growth potential, i will jump back on this ship when i see a price that's worthy as i think it has great long term potential.

    Good article, decline in the oil price, will take this down a little further. But lets hope the business is making itself more efficient! Long term this will pay off, unless someone actually does acquire them. Might be a pain, but that is true for many companies, they operate in many companies. It depends if someone wants to buy proven resources other than searching for it, by themselves.

    2.80 will not return anytime soon. The feeling is Tullow and a few others are potential targets and I can see BP being a predator otherwise their days of independence could dissappear.
  • RE: Iran Sanctions Lift? by Apollo440
    Thu, 21 May 2015 20:12:37 GMT

    It will take time for Iranian oil to go back into the market and Saudia arabia is a swing producer, the goal here is to punch the frackers and they have done that and pretty well. A lot of people have talked up frackers staying healthy and some will, but some have already filed for bankruptcy protection and a few more months we will surely see more. Lets see once balance has returned, if oil countries reduce their output, OPEC are willing to if others do, why should they if Russia don't. Russia is hurting most from this and will want the price of oil to go back. We should see US production start to fall also.
  • Iran Sanctions Lift? by uddinkas
    Thu, 21 May 2015 15:54:14 GMT

    I'm not sure if Iran's trade sanctions has been lifted but would like to know the level of oversupply in the market if they are close to having their trade sanctions lifted. The brent crude price will definately go downwards and the Saudi's won't stop overpumping the market with oil until they see alot of Frackers go bust.

    I sold most of my holdings at 4.29 recently. im hoping we see the lows of 2.80 again or even the 350s only then would i consider buying back in.
