This petition was stalled in parliament since 12th Aug 15; finally green lit on 12th feb 2016. The FCA have finally replied, saying its nothing to do with them as they only deal with market abuse & insider dealing, now is your chance to have your say.
If you hate seeing buys reported as sells etc!!!!!! Has already been sent to Martin Lewis, Daily Mail, Moneyweek & Watchdog.
My local MP supported this petition by writing to the petitions committee to help un-stall it. There’s 650 MP’s in Westminster, So have you written to your MP? 649 to go! If this petition doesn’t reach 10,000; then imo we might as well have not bothered as it will almost certainly be filed B1N; @ 10,000 the government should respond. ONLY 8 weeks to go !!!
So – If you haven’t yet signed or indeed have but haven’t passed it on to others, then now’s the time to do so.
Oil exports on course despite militants’ attacks On June 22, 201610:17 amIn Business, News by IkennaComments By Omoh Gabriel, Business Editor, with agency reports Nigeria in May exported 1.89 million barrels per day, contrary to fears that crude export has dropped to as low as 1.3 million barrel per day.
Data released by Windward, a maritime intelligence firm showed that Nigeria’s crude oil exports in May dropped by just 62,000 barrels per day (bpd) from April, with exports still reaching 1.89 million bpd. Bonga oil field ...alleged source of the massive spill Windward tracks all exports coming from Nigeria including crude oil, condensates and ship-to-ship transfers, so its figures are nearly always higher than estimates of crude oil production alone.
But its figures indicate that Nigeria exported between 300,000-500,0000 bpd more than what OPEC and other agencies thought it had produced in May. Repeated militant attacks Nigeria, according to the firm, kept exporting crude oil at a largely steady pace in May, though below historical levels, despite repeated militant attacks on its infrastructure that drove output down to 30-year lows and helped global prices rise, the data showed.
The data from the maritime intelligence firm, Windward, and Thomson Reuters revealed a far smaller drop in exports from April to May than most in the market had suggested. It suggested that Nigerian oil production is more resilient than many thought.
The oil industry has been grappling with a spate of militant attacks that took out the Forcados crude oil stream in February and affected Bonny Light, Brass River and Escravos in May, mainly by targeting pipelines taking crude to export terminals. An accident on the terminal exporting Qua Iboe, its largest oil stream, further knocked production and led the International Energy Agency (IEA) to declare May production at 30-year lows of 1.37 million bpd. But Windward showed May exports dropping by just 62,000 barrels per day (bpd) from April, with exports still reaching 1.89 million bpd.
The figures are significant, particularly as the government announced a 30-day ceasefire with militants yesterday that could forestall further attacks on oil sites. “It was the gains from small fields that offset declines from others,” said James Davis, head of crude supply at FGE Energy. “The disruptions in the fields that were out was pretty much what we expected. What we didn’t expect was the marginal increases in other fields.” Reuters data showed total exports in May at roughly 1.67 million bpd, down from 1.77 million bpd in April, and also a rise in exports of grades including Bonga, Agbami, Antan, Amenam, Okwori that helped offset the losses.
The figures remain sustantially below the close to 2 million bpd Nigeria has exprted in the best of times. Still, they suggest that many industry observers, for example the “secondary sources” polled by OPEC that pe
