  • Shell files lawsuit against Greenpeace protesters [View news story]
    Fools like you should practice what they preach.

    Get off the internet, the electricity network, and crawl back into the cave that you came from.

    I just wish Shell would stop being so cagey and act against these green scum with proper force.

  • Court tells Glencore to pay $40M over Romania oil fraud [View news story]
    So just to be clear about the headline. Glencore must pay for the fraud conducted by - Marc Rich & Co - a company it took over after the the fraud was committed. It was not Glencore that committed the fraud.

    The only problem I can see is that Glencore did not uncover this fraud during their due diligence study when taking over Marc Rich & Co.

  • BP makes second large deepwater gas find off Egypt [View news story]
    Spike,

    Egypt is a developed country and use gas domestically.

    This find may provide up to 25% of Egypts current needs.

    Nothing left for Europe, good news, no expensive pipelines etc.

  • Gazprom cancels planned extension of Nord Stream pipeline [View news story]
    What a good play, only 2,5 to 3 times the rate the Russians charge. For our principled - and need I add - unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, a price worth paying. After all, with their tax free salaries why should they care?

    Let the EU shit bricks. They cancelled access to finance, let them shiver in the winters ahead and then maybe they will come to their senses.

  • BP freezing employee pay to cut costs [View news story]
    Sounds fair, either freeze pay or increase pay and cut the payroll. Which ever way you dice it, there will be pain.

  • Gazprom says Ukraine's discount gas price to end April 1 [View news story]
    Oh yes, the Russians are using James Bond invisible paint and clothes to hide their troops and tanks so that the NATO spy satellites can't see them? The lizard eating aliens are helping them this in this endeavour. Poppycock!

    The neo-nazis in Kiev have decided to do some ethnic cleansing in their country. They banned the Russian language and they want to purge all Russian speaking for their soil. I don't have any sympathy for them.

    The Maiden junta decided to cut ties with Russia, good, their choice, let them pay for it.

  • Is There Cause For Concern Over BP's 6.6% Dividend? [View article]
    Brit company?

    Please explain that to me.

    More than half their employees are Yanks.

    There was not one Brit - as you call them - involved with the oil spill, the whole blinking lot on the rig and in management were rebel colonists, more than 50 % of the shares of BP are in the hands of Yanks, and you have the gall to call them a Brit company.

    Deluded d#ck, that's what you are.

  • Is There Cause For Concern Over BP's 6.6% Dividend? [View article]
    See my comment about the reason the dividend was suspended.

    Let's not forget how the company was sneeringly called British Petroleum, despite the name change decades ago.

    Just remember that it was Obama that forced them to suspend the dividend 'out of respect'....

  • Update: Ivanhoe Mines Releases Results Of The Platreef Project Pre-Feasibility Study [View article]
    It is such a sensible decision to go with this staged approach. Nothing wrong with a 4Mtpa operation, a good training ground to work out methods, standards and practices that can applied to the expanded operation.

    I like this plan.

  • Ivanhoe Mines: 3 World-Class Projects Under One Roof [View article]
    Commodities, and therefore metal prices, are very low at the moment. Therefor the returns are not that attractive. What we do know about commodity prices is that they can change quite dramatically in the short-term. When you have a price spike with an operation that makes money during depressed time they make money hand over fist. The longer the life of an operation the more chance you have it experiencing a price spike.

  • Ivanhoe Mines: 3 World-Class Projects Under One Roof [View article]
    I am a retired mining engineer.

    During my time at head office I reviewed projects adjacent to these projects, Platreef and Kamoa, and then Kipushi itself.

    It was always country and political risks and never technical issues that delayed the implementation.

    With his track record of getting good projects off the ground, in political difficult jurisdictions, I think Friedland is on to winner here.

    I did put some of my money in play, and hope for a 5 to 10 bagger here.

    All you need is for a two to three year metal price spike, which is not unusual in this kind of business.

    If you want stability, buy Detroit city bonds.

  • Update: The Horrible, No Good, Awful BP [View article]
    Shelby, thank you for your very dim, and need I add, realistic view on BP.

    I also want to add, thank you for spelling rouble correctly.

    However, I agree with Michael 1959, Rosneft is paying Roubles to the bulk of its employees and selling the product in dollars, a very profitable position to be in. This is the same position the South African gold miners are in, and the weakening of currency is not viewed in a bad light at all.
