I'm rather hoping the issue with revenue is a short term one. Once we can get the oil to market (barges and pipelines both in the offing) and stop choking back the wells, then AMER will start to show its true colours. I see the market cap as more reflective of the huge potential here, rather than current production figures.

Does that not make a market cap of £544mln with a revenue of $42mln look ridiculously overvalued right now?

I really don't know! That's the exciting thing about it. With a 6 fold increase in eps our P/E has dropped massively. Problem is I am too new to this game to know where this could go. Based on past performance, though, and future potential (which is huge with a capital H), it is not one that I am going to be selling out of in the short term; so rises over the next few days are slightly academic (barring the fact they will give me some money to put into SRT and possible APC... and possibly IRON... happy days!). I still reckon it could do 20% today...it has a very firm band of followers hwo have been in and out.

What really sticks out for me is the vast potential of the blocks in Put-12, Fenix and Paraguay. Add to that, the fact that all development in 2013 is 'fully funded', on top of cash reserves of 47m, and it is clear that this company still has so much further to go. The reall biggy, short term, will be clearing the export blockage, then we'll get a true idea of how much money AMER can make.

Really excellent results.

Here's the rest ...

Giles Clarke, Chairman of Amerisur said:
"We have made exceptional progress this year with outstanding results from the Platanillo drilling programme and the subsequent increase in production, together with the more than threefold increase in 2P reserves to 29.9MMBO, which was based on just four of the initially planned eight-well programme at Platanillo. This is a substantial reserves base from which we will continue to build.

This extremely successful work indicates a very high potential in Platanillo, which we will continue to deliver through our drilling programme over the coming years. This will allow us to create a firm production platform from which to grow the Company further. At the same time, we continue to develop an important skill-set which I am sure will bear further fruit in our Put-12 block, as well as standing us in good stead as we proceed north in the Platanillo block. I congratulate the CEO and his team on their efficient appraisal and development of such a valuable oil field.

In some ways victims of our early success during the year, we are actively resolving the export constraint issues and plan to drill 10 new wells in total on Platanillo this year, plus side-tracks of the legacy wells, thus increasing Platanillo production to substantial levels. We also plan to drill a well on the Fenix block and significantly de-risk our new block Put-12, as well as our acreage in Paraguay. As in years before, we look to the year ahead with great confidence."

... knowing the perversity of markets, the shares will probably plunge. Maybe instead of 50p, I'll be able to pick up my next tranche at 40p.

I should have kept my money for today! Let's just hope we get the re-rate on results, etc, that we are after.

Great spot Compton...

"Our goal is to finish the first phase this year ... we'll transport approximately 15,000 barrels a day from Colombia, for that we wouldn't need more infrastructure or new pipes," the company's executive director, Andres Mendizabal, told reporters.

He said the plan would allow oil fields in southern Colombia to export their crude.

...last line sounds really nice for those of us in here!

Rex Harbour paid more than 52p for the latest tranche. More like 56-57p. But a couple of pence difference is probably not important at this stage. What is interesting is that they are not holding or selling but increasing their holding... while the wider market awaits for updates on Platanillo and elsewhere.
