There are some who have tried to explain football's offside rule at the breakfast table (" the jam is the goalkeeper, the Marmite is the last defender and this attacking sugar=spoon is going to flick the sugar-cube - just as the milk-jug is level with the Marmite...") and others who have related the size of oil-spills to swimming-pools. For those who prefer this simplified-visual approach…

On the Sep 1 2011, Halliburton filed a claim against BP for "for negligent misrepresentation, business disparagement and defamation" according to this press release on Halliburton's website. The remarkably short release goes on to say that "Halliburton has learned that BP provided Halliburton inaccurate information about the actual location of hydrocarbon zones in the Macondo well. The actual location of the hydrocarbon zones is critical…

Having carefully observed the two characters focused on the computer for a few minutes, the man in the tailored suit turned to his colleague. "So what exactly is the proposal?" he asked. "It's quite simple," answered his younger colleague, "they're prepared to sell their place at the table, their hand and all of their chips - for cash." "Mmm. And you've seen what they're holding?"…

Ed Milliband wins the Labour leadership over his brother with a margin of around 1%. With a debt apparently owed to the Unions and perhaps the old left, will he be able to create a credible shadow cabinet of MPs who didn't support his candidacy?

I had my own soldier once. I have no idea what he did when he wasn't walking around next to me, breaking all the rules about keeping a safe distance from radioactive sources... As long as you believe what Soco are saying, you probably don't have too much worry about. ISTM the Telegraph have carefully used the phrase "supporters of Soco"—who are probably as attractive…

Hi ee, Is that an actual quote?I have this from March 11 2013: The company said it would decide on the level of what would be a "sustainable return of capital" to shareholders at some point this year... Chief executive Ed Story said in an interview on Monday that the returns would be "quite significant" and would take place annually. "You saw the profitability in…

I would draw a distinction between connectivity and the term attributed to RBC by Alphaville which was pressure communication - a term which is (rightly at this stage) more cautious. It's perfectly possible to have pressure communication even while the hydrocarbons are compartmentalized - pressure can be transmitted through water underneath. Those who have their mitts on the models will have a view as to…

Some babble emerging: “Neutral” rating restated by equities research analysts at BNP Paribas in a research note issued to investors on Friday, reports. They currently have a GBX 410 ($6.39) price objective on the stock Bank of America Corp. reiterated a “buy” rating on shares of Soco International in a research note to investors on Thursday. They now have a GBX 536 ($8.35)…

Just in relation to the point about 117m of net pay being found so far, it is worth noting the results from the two nearest explo wells: The TGT-3X flowed 9,908 boepd from 60 metres of perforated Miocene (with 8m of Miocene and 6m of Oligocene left untested) and the TGT-6X flowed 14,490 bopd (plus some unmeasured gas) in two tests totalling 58m, both of…
