I need to check this game out AD - the name sounds familiar but I can’t recall ever playing it - does sound right up my street though.
As you say off topic but I could not understand why a poster would be questioning Iran’s presence/influence in certain countries in the region when even Iran does not.
I agree anything that can make the UK less dependent on this enduring powder keg of a region can only be a good thing. It will also be a pretty good thing for us guys as well if we get the right numbers - assuming neither the SNP or labour get an opportunity to get their grubby mitts on our oil first.
" Iraq in the early eighties"
I meant nineties, of course...
OK, it's a bit off-topic, but this is an O&G share after all, so such stuff is pertinant.
"Why do you question Iran’s presence in such countries as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen when they actually seem quite proud of the fact?"
That's an interesting question. One which seemingly many people appear to ignore. I don't know if you're familiar with that great old board game, 'Risk'. But if you have one, maybe it's time to drag it out of the cupboard and study the thing. Because Iran seems to have the KSA halfway 'encircled', partly with the tacit support of Russia (militarily) and China (diplomatically). This of course puts a certain sort of 'pressure' on the USA, and despite the presence of that nation's naval might in the area, the board-game usually shows that if one holds N.America, keeping hold of a bit of the Middle East can be difficult. Especially if one's trying to hem onself in with walls along the Mexican border and consolidate one's position of 'making America great again', although that particular gimmick doesn't figure in Risk.
Plus things like Vietnam and Afghanistan have rather dulled the American Joe Sixpack's taste for waging war at a distance. Iraq in the early eighties notwithstanding.
Remember the phrase Hurricane Energy bandied about two or three years ago about the potential 'strategic importance' of finds such as the company has on Rona Ridge? It doesn't get much mention of late, but shouldn't be forgotten. Plus Lancaster (and now Lincoln) give light, sweet crude. Unlike the heavy crud which constitues the major production from the KSA.
Fair enough GK :-)
Maybe for the same reason they were ‘stupid’ enough to shoot down an American drone, send a recently released oil tanker to offload in Syria several days after promising this would not happen and seize other vessels in the straits of H. It does not take a genius to work out the Iranians don’t seem overly anxious about upsetting the US at the moment. This maybe a risky strategy but when you have a US president who stepped back from responding to the drone attack, who’s support base is predominantly isolationist (with an election not too far away), who wants to suppress oil price, who styles himself as a ‘deal maker’ and who has just sacked his hawkish NSA maybe the Iranians just believe they have him sussed. If they can make him look weak through a failure to respond or eventually provoke him to sanction a military response, then who wins out? Either way there is a possibility that Trump’s isolationist but nationalistic support base may turn against him and then guess who wins the next presidential election. I wonder why Iran would wish to see another Obama back in charge?
Why do you question Iran’s presence in such countries as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen when they actually seem quite proud of the fact?
"I will happily buy you 568ml, or multiples of, your favourite drink next time in Niort..."
That's very kind of you. But I think I'd have a hard time swallowing 568ml of coffee in one go.
"Funnily enough I have been contacted by President Trump's advisors saying exactly the same thing"
Thank you for the clarification. And I completely understand thaat the White House might want to distance themselves from any possible confusion between the current incumbent and myself. He doesn't want to lose votes, does he?
And anyway, such confusion would be difficult to justify. Because unlike a large majority of recent American presidents (like for the last 100 years or more), Trump is a hopeless poker-player. Seemingly whenever he's dealt a decent hand, he bounces up and down in his chair. with a big grin on his face...
"That is a terrible insult, and I am deeply offended. I am NOT that man"
Funnily enough I have been contacted by President Trump's advisors saying exactly the same thing
I do of course aplogize (to you, not to your doppelganger)
I will happily buy you 568ml, or multiples of, your favourite drink next time in Niort...
"Well now we know a2uk IS Trump!"
That is a terrible insult, and I am deeply offended. I am NOT that man (if Man it actually is: I suspect it may be a robot).
Furthermore, I do not suffer from a split personality. Though on Wednesdays and Saturdays you may address me as Napoleon, if you like.
PS: The latter is a reference to the boar in Orwell's Animal Farm. Not the Frenchman with the odd-looking hat.
so the eye -ranians launched the drones from Iran lol so let me put my Sherlock hat on and the Colombo rain coat, Iranian's are suppose to be in Yay-men leading and orchestrating a proxy war and they are also suppose to be in Syria finishing a proxy war against ISIS and they were allegedly in Libya too. So, if they are in all of those countries knowing that satellite imagery is being used to track all aerial movement why would they be so frigging fracking dumb and stupid to launch the drone attack from their own county !!!!!!!!!
"A narcissist I am not"
Well now we know a2uk IS Trump!
Anyone ever seen them together?
I rest my case...
Lockup 120 days, till 14Nov I reckon.
"Hurricane notes that Kerogen has signalled its continued support for the Company as it continues to be a major shareholder with a 16.0 per cent interest and a nominated representative on Hurricane's board of directors. Kerogen has participated in each of the Company's significant placings since April 2016 and this transaction represents approximately a quarter of its current holding. "
SG2 Kerogen cannot sell atm!
Sadly, the red strobes are deemed necessary to aid f-wits that fly under IMC (and are sufficiently incompetent that they can't/don't use their nav/ maps/basic pilot's licence flying skills) to avoid a fit. (Flew into 'terrain'.) So should be unnecessary, but like car seat belts, rqd by law.
On the Hur so note, the sellers are really putting a few shifts in recently - I wonder if K or CA's holdings will be rns'd soon? ( Is there a UK notification point between 15 and 10%? - I think not....?)
"The first few turbines that appeared (proper big f*** off ones, not the silly little windmills with 2 blades) were fascinating and strangely lovely."
Yeah, I suppose semi-grudgingly I'll grant you that. Novelty value. But now?
Hey. On the nighttime drive home from the casino (a road I know well), at one point the horizon consists not of stars, but a line of flashing red lights. They are the warning beacons on top of a windfarm. Now why should the gentle countryside here be spoiled by flashing red lights? If a monk of the middle ages saw such a sight, he might think of devils.
"Trump is a narcissist knob with scant regard for others....."
Correct. And thereby I refute any common ground with him. A narcissist I am not: looking in the mirror I find to be a rather scary experience these days. And I tend to hold others in high regard unless they prove themselves unworthy of such attention. Especially is they're in their mid-thirties, have nice boobs, and a fetching smile.
Politically incorrect? Qui, moi?
The way you people are wailing and gnashing your teeth, you'd think it was Grangemouth which got bombed.
The first few turbines that appeared (proper big f*** off ones, not the silly little windmills with 2 blades) were fascinating and strangely lovely. But as time rolls on and they proliferate exponentially I agree that their attraction has dwindled significantly.
"PS, wind turbines are a thing of beauty, you're just too blind to see ;o)"
Oh dear, we have another point of difference. And it's an odd one. Because I detest wind turbines with a deeply-rooted hatred. There are a lot of them blotting the landscape where I live. And I just can't help wondering how nice it would be to wrap some det-cord round the base of some of them and watch the silly thing fall. Made-in-Germany precision bearings an' all. However I'm a peaceful sort of person so don't get up to that kind of behaviour.
I refute Wellwell's suspicion that I may share some character traits with the POTUS, but I may have a little bit of the Don Quixote in me...
Trump is a narcissist knob with scant regard for others.....
"Actually AK you and Trump.....you have a lot in common I think."
Oh yeah? You think wrong. And what's your problem, anyway? It's only a bloomin' oil refinery that got bombed. No casualties, either, seemingly. Not 9/11. The guys with the dishcloths on their heads can always buy another one.
Serves 'em right for cold-bloodedly murdering a journalist.
Actually AK you and Trump.....you have a lot in common I think.
