Arminius,Many thanks for info that may explain where they have gone,perhaps when they have proven resources in Georgia,they will use some funds to continue in Nugaal,im still holding and buying more as a feel they have great potential to rise on results in Georgia alone.
Am glad someone has noticed that they havent dismantled the rigs,hmmm!!where are they you may ask?,Nugaal ??,my guess is they have been there a few months now,so lets just see what happens next in the next report which is??,end of month according to last rns,well done Cameron for committing 60 million to help fund the regeneration of Somalia,maybe the Americans have joined the party and only want a little bit of that oil in return!!.gla
After Somaliland, which hired the Glover Park Group (GPG) to lobby for it in Washington, now it`s Mogadishu`s turn to take one.
The governor of the Central bank of Somalia (CBS), the economist Abdusalam Omer, wrote on 3 April to the American former Democrat congressman Toby Moffett to confirm that he was appointing his public relations company Moffett Group to be CBS`s official representative in the United States. Omer is an old acquaintance of the Somalian President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who appointed him to the post in January (ION 1349). The letter states that Moffett`s task will be to determine which funds owned by Somalia or Somalian people are still frozen in American banks and other financial institutions. Now that the United States and Somalia have normalised their diplomatic relations, Abdusalem Omer considers that any such funds should be handed back to the CBS. The CBS governor asked Toby Moffett to mobilise congressmen from both parties to ask the American government to locate and evaluate the sums involved. Omer`s letter concluded by setting a date for the two men to meet again before the end of the month, to coincide with his trip to Washington for the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The Moffett Group had already been hired in 2011 by Abdirahman Mohamed Mohamud aka Farole, the President of Puntland (an autonomous region in the north east of Somalia) to try to persuade ConocoPhillips, which had abandoned searching for oil in Somalia in 1991, to resume doing so in Puntland (ION 1324). The person mandated to liaise between Puntland and the Moffett Group is Kadir Abdirahman Mohamud, its President`s son.
In the past they have paid good money to try to persuade ConocoPhillips to return to Somalia. They also approached the other companies to rekindle interest in returning. According to that Times article it looks like they have succeeded. Why is that success now being used by some, to suggest that it is game over for RMP and partners?
