    • Athabasca Oil (OTCPK:ATHOF +3.2%) jumps after PetroChina (PTR -1.9%) President Wang Dongjin says the long-delayed $1.23B payment for its stake in the Dover oil sands project will be made soon.
    • PTR was supposed to have completed the acquisition in June, but delayed payment amid the Chinese government's corruption investigation into the company; PTR also was said to want to reduce the amount owed because it believed the assets are of poorer quality than expected.

    • The firm sees a risk regarding the anticipated C$1.23B payment from PTR, and it does not expect any improved clarity on the issue for some time.
    • The risks around the Dover project put also raise concerns about the pace of development for Athasbasca’s Duvernay assets and the company’s ability to eventually secure a joint venture partner, the firm says.
