    "errrmmm ? did I read somewhere that it may be 2018 ... 4 more years seems a long wait"

    PEPD says 2016 [totally ridiculous] Tlw Uganda said last week 2019 [clearly have not consulted with PEPD].

    700 wells to be drilled for this "export" - gawd knows how they will get all them rigs from

    As usual - its a total mess - the right hand does not know what the left is doing. Totally disorganised -

    But MisterX1 is going to UG & Kenya mid week for consultancy - consequently she will get the status of the current mess.

    My guess as it stands is - do not expect anything for a further 10 years [if at all]

    ROFLMAO at the mess

    Finally I am in today at 668.. Been waiting very long time for this to buy at cheap price since I sold it at 897 ( luckily in profit couple of months ago!) Cannot wait further as I have already got it at discounted rate of almost 25% from the price I sold.
    This stock will sooner or later will fly as all the bad news are already factored in. I hope I am right again with this stock!

  • Some movement in Uganda by Edvardo
    Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:09:00 GMT


    "Kabanda said two Central Processing Facilities would be built at Buliisa and Kingfisher oil development areas, each with a power plant to generate electricity from gas. “The 35mw would be generated at Kingfisher and 7mw at Buliisa,” he said, adding that nine more oil rigs would be erected at the sites and 80 people would be required per rig (a large structure with facilities to drill wells, extract and process oil and natural gas).

    The two CPFs are meant for the preliminary purification of the oil before it is taken to the refinery. The crude oil is supposed to be pumped to the CPF from the various wells through a network of pipelines. A total of 700 wells shall be drilled.

    According to the officials, plans are underway to establish huge oil storage tanks with a capacity of 250,000 barrels of oil. "

    Mr X1
    I of course disagree reference cannot restore previous glory etc but well done for partly giving a "slightly" more reasonably toned point of view.

    Having said that your comment " as the ONLY thing you are interested in is ramping up your paper losses" is total rubbish.

    I am fortunate to have bought, as I have explained before [several times] at much, much lower price than current SP and am not running up paper losses so please at least drop the ramping nonsense.

    Good night or goodbye for a week.

  • Re: Stained SHORTS For Sale... by MisterX1
    Thu, 18 Sep 2014 19:43:00 GMT very last word on this before I put you on Ignore for a week - to teach you a lesson....

    Tlw is now a waste of time for PI's....they have had their chance to capitalize on past glory and blew it. Take 20 similar companies in E & P and compare the sp over the last 2/ 3 years and you will see that tlw have failed miserably and are close to the bottom of the pile.

    They CANNOT restore their previous glory - many, for example, disillusioned employees [those who think they have the talent to contribute to Tlw] have lost out in terms of salaries and more so share incentive schemes, et al. So they leave in search of better pastures thereby tlw is losing "good" people. They see better opportunities elsewhere and they also see the BoD are continuing to fill their snouts from the trough with impunity ....
    For tlw then to attempt to attract and RETAIN becomes an issue and not one they can simply go back to their former "glory" as its lost forever.

    Therefore the chance of recovery back to their previous lucky position is now severely jeopardised. Therefore do not expect the sp to ever to recover back as the changing team is now a new force that is no longer as effective as the previous success one.

    But I do not suppose you will ever understand that .... as the ONLY thing you are interested in is ramping up your paper losses

    Mrx1 "You" don't get it. You are just guessing. You cannot really believe that you can predict the SP or that the fantasist freeeek actually has " people on the ground" and " documentation".
    You really are a total pl0nker and it's a complete waste of time, as said, having any dialogue with a nut case who hasn't a clue about how the stock markets work.
    Let me give you a lesson: They go up, they go down and sometimes they are very disappointing but fundamentals will win through and TLW " will" rise again.
    You are here because, as I said before, you are carrying a very large " block of wood" on your shoulder and you could ease that burden by just disappearing ...but of course you won't.

    You really are a case are you not ??

    I predicted 681 as the breach point last Sunday - then we had a couple of days when it hit and then bounced back. Once it beached it was inevitable that it would cascade down - and today showed it did. So MisterX1 correct AGAIN as it is clearly seen.

    So I suggest that the half a brain cell you attribute to me is taken back by you, and given to tweeeek to compliment his already many brain cells he has in getting the sp right - something you and all the rampers have so many many times got wrong and over 2 and 1/2 years now.

    So where does that leave you ? Well, having returned the half a brain cell back to you, and then you attributing that to tweeeek leaves YOU with NONE....

  • The short position by busa
    Sun, 21 Sep 2014 19:06:50 GMT

    Evening all. Just to finish of this evening. As far as I know Lansdowne Partners (uk) are the only main short position in TLW at 2.51.Quite me if I am wrong but it was Lansdowne Partners LLP that have always had a position in TLW but have closed there position in this year. I think they are of the same company ?. Anyway though they have increased 0.51 of late to 2.51 short on this stock in my opinion only It's fair to say that they are not to bullish on the big drop on TLW. So let's see over the coming weeks if we are right. Just too say I only post for the benefit of being positive and also knowing there is people in TLW with LARGE paper loses only until they sell of cause. gla busa out

If I was down like you say you are in TLW I would have done the same but instead I am down on one of my other stocks which at the low price it stands at there was no option but to put the money in there.But not to take any think away from TLW my next lot of money will be going into TLW .Once again good luck and I hope you get to read this post. aled41 as for banter where all friends here so like me don't worry about it. glta busa.

    Sat, 20 Sep 2014 16:11:51 GMT

    Hi there busa I must admit, I'm very glad that the Scots had the sense to vote NO. Please be assured. I have no direct interest in Scotland. In fact I'm Welsh/England. But I do admit to looking a bit like a Scot who was our Postman, and having an insatiable desire for Scottish delicacies, such raw haggis, deep fried Mars bars etc. I also have a wardrobe full of kilts, and like to play the bagpipes . Very strange! But, it's probably just a coincidence. MMM???? I noted your feeble excuse busa, for NOT buying more TLW share. I accept your decision, as it actually makes sense! (Not a lot, but just enough) I would add though, that on the strength of your previous mid-week message, and following your excellent advice to the letter, I DID buy more TLW shares, probably the ones that you DIDN'T buy! (Bad joke ) As I recall, your average cost is below £7. So if you think the SP will stay steady, I agree that you just as well put your money into something a bit more exciting. I was, and still am, well down on my average cost price, so I chose Thursday (Before the vote), to average down! I think the price I paid was 663p, and I hope that we have now seen the bottom, and the SP will stabilise, as you state. Someday, in the not too distant future, Tullow Oil will either find it's "MOJO" again, strike loads of new oil, and the SP will shoot up. Or, it will be taken over by one of the big boys, who would love to gain access to all the oil reserves that Tullow owns. If neither of those events happen, we will have to be patient, and wait for the TLW cost saving plans etc to evolve, which according to numerous experts, will turn Tullow Oil into a very productive, and wealthy oil company! So, at the current SP of 667p , Tullow is a "BUY", with a target price of at least £9. Just to remind any potential new shareholders, Tullow Oil already has tangible oil assets worth £10-£13 per share Tullow Oil is a FTSE 100 company and valued at over £6 billion. busa, I thought my posting today was so dynamic and compelling, that it has convinced me to sell a load of my (welsh)kilts, and buy MORE TLW shares! (LOL) Seriously, I have certainly posted far too much of late, so I will now disappear for a while. It has been nice to banter with you busa, and best of luck for your future!

    Hello again rbrand Excuse any teasing or anything tasteless that I said in my last message that annoyed or offended you! Also, I was only using the article by Greenspan to enhance my obvious choice of the outcome of the Scottish vote! As for Greenspan, I could not agree more! He was a long standing Federal Reserve chief, and was second only to the President for power! He was a miserable looking man, but the whole western world still listened to his every word. As you pointed out, he induced a "boom of the century", which eventually ended in the collapse of America, and most of the rest of the world, (Boom & Bust!) He left a bad legacy, which will follow him to his grave. It is people like him who actually control the world, due to our total reliance on them for our money! The 1929 American recession was induced by the FED, and the rest that followed. They have been responsible for most of the catastrophic economic events, even wars, around the world, The Fed has been in control since 1913. Over here, the Bank of England has been around for centuries! What most people cannot believe is that the FED, and the BOE are 100% privately owned, and have absolutely NO CONNECTIONS with their Governments! They loan massive amounts of money to their Governments , but always with interest! The Federal Reserve is not Federal, and has no reserves! Just like BOE, it produces money from "Thin Air". It passes it on, but always with interest! If this is new to any of you out there, go online to YOUTUBE and you will learn the real truth of corruption & greed that we all call "THE BANKS" Back to the topic rbrand! Sorry rbrand, but there is NO remedy for the main banking system. They have a death grip on all of us! The whole world owes them so much money, and the debt increases every day, so you see, we are stuck with them until someone special comes along one day, changes the whole money system, and ends the money slave trade that is run by the banks. Sadly,It has been said that JFK was killed for promising the American people that he would change back to the gold standard. That would have been very bad for the greedy, nasty bank men. My tirade on AS was to offset the way he was running his campaign.. He was telling "porkies", and letting his SNP thugs to do anything to stop the "NO" vote, such as violence & abuse. He is not a nice man. Scotland deserves someone much better! He was hoping for a sensational win, which would be good for himself, not the people. His name would be in the history books, FOR EVER! He had even picked out a big castle for his personal use. Does that sound like a man who cares about anyone else. It sounds more like a man who is looking forward to total control of Scotland! Now that it's over, sorry if I overdid it yesterday! I must say that I am thrilled that the "No" won, and we still have our Union.

NO. Again we all draw up are own conclusions on TLW and for me I think the sp is starting to stabilise so I placed the fund into one of my other stocks.

    My mind boggled at what possible reason there could be for ANYONE to launch such a tirade against Salmon. I did not read most of it because my reason for replying was Greenspan. Leaving aside what the **** does it matter what he thinks about Scotland-just used as a useful tool, do you not know recent history at all ? Starting with the 1998 crisis he eased monetarily reducing the interest rate to new lows. This created the US huge indebtedness which he handed on to Bernanke who could only do the same and more leading to the present completely HOPELESS position, from which there is absolutely no escape short of high inflation which they are trying but failing to achieve or worse war, which is being worked on this very minute. I assume you are young ? what is your remedy ? PS we agree on TLW value.Last night I heard someone talk who has studied closely the US fracking miracle and yes it isn`t ; falling apart already and needs far higher oil prices to be economic.

    Hello rbrand (Is that you Russell?) Sadly, I read your message, but could not understand most of it! I saw "Greenspan" mentioned, and connected it to my post the other day. If you recall Russell, he accused AS (or is that ASS) of lying to the Scots about very important issues, and told Scotland to vote "NO"! President Clinton has also joined in, and said vote "NO". There are LOADS OF famous intelligent persons, who told the Scots to vote "NO" Alex Salmond is I believe, a bachelor, childless, and a bit of a recluse! He is a crafty, scheming, politician, who will lie through his teeth to get total power in Scotland, & get his name in the history books. He hates the English because an English girl, who was the love of his life, DUMPED HIM! Sadly, one of his great downfalls, is that BIG FAT UGLY GUT! There's enough of it for ALEX to be the1st, 2nd, and even the 3rd minister, all at the same time! You Scots will have to buy extra wide TV's. On a serious note, I'm worried about the English, and others, who may suffer at the hands of the bully boys who follow the SNP party. The type of SNP thugs seen on TV, prepared to abuse, spoil, attack, injure anyone they met who was planning to vote "NO", was quite disgusting/ You should expect a slow, planned evacuation of the English, and all undesirables. if "YES" wins, I dread to think what may happen to these folk,(Especially the English), when the SNP heavy mob are free of reprisals from Westminster! (ALEX SALMOND WON'T STOP THEM!) Expect damaged or burnt down property. Verbal & physical abuse will be common, making it hard to live a safe & happy life Even Ed Milliband was called a F---ing liar, as he was talking to a street crowd. (And that was heard on TV!) Salmond has already chosen his favourite Castle (Yes, a castle), with a moat and drawbridge, for his personal use. Wow! Scotland could have a King Alex, (Or maybe a Queen Alexandra), if the "yes" vote wins. Scotland! Get ready to bow to your new royal leader if he wins, or you may have some of those nasty NSP louts giving you a visit! Did you notice on TV, those big guys who accompany Mr Salmond as bodyguards, pushing people around, and giving him lots of space to be seen by his future public (If he wins). if you sadly voted "YES". better get used to bowing, shoe kissing, cheering etc to your new royal leader, Mr Salmond and his little lady minister remind me of the "Krankies.. (I think that's their name!). They are a comedy team! (Just like these two), except the Krankies make me laugh, and ALEX SALMOND & Co makes me GRINGE! I truly hope the "NO" wins. The thought of that creepy Mr Salmond and his "Krankie" partner, ruling such a proud country, makes me sick! Please forgive me. I know this message is too late to effect any voting, but I just wanted to say it! GO

    Evening all. No one can predict when the bottom as been reached so I will be topping up tomorrow if the timing is right. As far as the sp is concerned. TLW are in the middle of the ring with blows coming from all sides and with the high p/e this does put of lots of investors. Positive busa: 1.Even though TLW as underperformed this yeas and last year they still have a generous safety net. We all know by now all the projects in the pipe line so it's not to hard to see that things will turn around and if we can have the patience and the spare money to sit back and not bail we will be rewarded. 2.As I see things the low crude oil price and Scotland messing about and it's September I am not surprised what is happening to the sp of TLW and that's why I will keep topping up. 3.The current sp IS NOT a true reflection of the value of TLW . 4.Just wait till next year and you will see how the sp of a company can go down and back up as fast or if not faster I have seen this happen so many times and I am not the only one here who as seen the same happen. garethbrieley19 welcome to the gang. glta from the fighting from the front lines busa

  • RE: When will this bleeding end? by aled41
    Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:03:42 GMT

    Hi there! I would suggest that the reason for this freefall in the SP, is a combination of the lower oil price, the SCOTTISH VOTE, market's general dislike of the oil sector, and a few dry wells of late! However, as you may have already seen, and read on this board, I am very bullish on TLW. I have researched TLW a lot lately, and listened to other bulls, such as "busa", and I can only say that this certainly is NOT the time for TLW shareholders to panic, and sell. Oil experts and analysts have convinced me that TLW already has oil reserves worth between £10-£13 per share. Add on the value of more finds, their future oil refinery in Africa etc, and you can see that it would be foolish of any of us to exit TLW right now, when the SP is so low. If anyone thinks the "NO" vote will win today, it's a reasonable bet that the TLW share price will rise tomorrow, and even continue to increase to a more respectable level,. If anyone thinks the "YES" vote will win, it's also a reasonable bet that TLW will drop in price tomorrow, just like the rest of the stock market, and start from an even lower level than it is today. Take your pick and BUY some more TLW shares! Please remember that Tullow Oil is now a long established FTSE 100 company (£6 billion+), and owns a lot of oil. The experts are explaining how TLW is reducing it's costs etc, and over the next couple of years, or less, will be a highly productive, and very wealthy company. Also with the SP much lower than the value of it's tangible oil reserves, It is now strongly considered to be a "Takeover Target", So, the cheaper the SP gets, the more likely that one of the big international oil firms will suddenly put in a bid for TLW, which I can only guess, would start at a minimum of £10, and end up higher! So for me, it's a no-brainer! I have held TLW shares for several years, and sadly confess that I am "well out of pocket", as the saying goes. But I will NOT be selling, but indeed, taking advantage of the current silly low price, and topping up! Best of luck!

I have no axe to grind but I keep trying to work out how Salmon is so charismatic for such a funny looking guy. I think part of it is that he can speak very easily because he speaks the truth and doesn`t have to remember a lying script. I am a shareholder here; sure need calm nerves but this seems just one of those times. With the oil price drop I wonder if the US fracking we hear about constantly is remotely economic now-if ever it was !

    Tue, 16 Sep 2014 19:08:56 GMT

    Evening all. As stated before with the price of brent crude dropping below $100 a barrel this due's put a strain on TLW's numbers and that in turn has dropped the SP as well as all the other news floating about, but lets look at the other side of the coin. Looking forward TLW has 13 new wells in Keny's rift basin. Ten projects in Ghana which are expecting to double production and all the projects in aled41 post. We can just go on and on and even after all the disappointments of the dry wells which is the match to the drop of the SP TLW still have $2.3 remaining of the borrowing facilities to explore for the next year.The key to it all is the brent crude price staying above $100 a barrel which is the worry here but with all the tree shaking and all the projects in the pipe line if the the price of crude stays low all it means is we the investors will have to wait that bit longer for the upward bounce. For people in the red and that includes me buying in at 698 and 704 I hope this helps keep are chins up. As always glta busa outtttttttttt
