    Until the cloud that is Ukraine passes over then markets in general will be up-and-down like nobody's business. I maintain TLW in my SIPP bit did offload 15% on Thursday just as a precaution against market volatility. Trying to stock pick individually stocks during such volatility is as bad as trading the indices.

    Hello D H,

    Good spot D H. "million"

    hopefully that is a typo!


    Could it be a conspiracy against Tullow?

    Have the forces of evil overcome the forces of good?

    Will good triumph over evil?

    Is it all smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand?

    Is this the real reason Uganda has produced no oil? Do they know the difference between millions and billions in Uganda??

    Is this the reason Uganda won't produce any oil until 2114? Yes 2114, and it's not a typo!!

    Have a good Easter break.


    PS I really do think I should get out more. By carliol

    "quash any discussion of them"

    On the contrary. Explain to all of us why dark pools are an important topic for this board, and how they "disadvantage" the average PI TLW investor. Include in your post why dark pools are much more likely to have been the cause of TLWs 8 pence drop today, rather than my simple T/A explanation. I take it that you were trying to link the two, given that you mentioned the "unexplained price erosion" and dark pools in the same breath.

    And all this for an 8 pence drop. God only knows who you'd blame if TLW dropped £8. Oh... wait... By Guesstimate

    " Kenya will soon start producing oil after Tullow Plc and Africa Oil Corp. recently discovered commercial quantities in the East African country. The partners are working with the government on a plan to start field development and export pipeline construction in 2015 and expect to start pumping by 2016."

    Mark my words it will not happen that soon - but years awayjust like MisterX1 predicted the issues for UG, the same will occur in Kenya.

    I WILL continue to monitor this and bring it up on a fairly regular basis

    Just DYOR and the work out all issues

    This may also be of interest, one of many commentaries that describe how dark pools are of interest to investors on the public exchanges.


    An important topic for PIs at least to be aware of. There's a reason why the are called "dark" and why they are coming under increasing scrutiny by the regulators. Plenty of people would like to keep them in the dark and play down the extent to which they disadvantage other investors (as with short selling). There are, of course, legitimate reasons for having dark pools but also plenty of ways they can be abused. Perish the thought that PIs might wish to inform themselves though.

    This sort of thing is of significance to PIs and we should at least be aware of them. I see that our self proclaimed board moderator has declared them a yet another forbidden topic and, no doubt, the thought police will be out in force to quash any discussion of them. I'll keep digging around at my leisure and post anything interesting that I come across. By brummell
  • Africa's Potential For Oil and Gas by carliol
    Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:16:00 GMT

    Evening All,

    Once again Tullow in the news as the leading oil explorer in Africa:-

    " Kenya will soon start producing oil after Tullow Plc and Africa Oil Corp. recently discovered commercial quantities in the East African country. The partners are working with the government on a plan to start field development and export pipeline construction in 2015 and expect to start pumping by 2016."

    " Uganda has also discovered up to 3.5 million barrels of oil, finding oil in 70 out of 77 drilled oil wells, a 90.9 percent success rate. The country also boasts of 500 billion cubic feet of proven natural gas reserves and plans to start crude oil production within the next five years."

    Good Evening All,

    This news item can only be good news for Tullow:-

    "After a series of delays and technical problems affecting the whole value chain, the state-owned petroleum company's new chief executive promises lift-off in July."

    Jaysus. You'll have the disciples worrying about Dark Pools next. Why? What have they got to with the average PI investor in TLW? I'll tell you. Nothing.

    Why is TLW retracing a little? Because it's been on a great run recently, and shares don't go up in a straight line. For the first time in about two years the RSI for TLW broached 70, an indicator to those who trade on a technical basis that the stock is reaching overbought levels in the short term. There you go. A nice simple explanation, probably true, with no conspiracy theories involved. Or go for your dark pools and secretive uber-traders to explain away a 12 pence drop in the SP. Gawd bless us.

    I see that the price rise is being eroded again. No doubt that will signal an increase in deramping activity again.

    At the risk of being pilloried by the usual crew I recommend this as a starting point for a bit of research on dark pools:


    The transfer of liquidity from the main market to a dark pool is an alternative reason for the stimulation of volatility. I'm not drawing conclusions, just pointing to some information that may be of interest, particularly where an unexplained rise in price is followed by an unexplained drop, and vice versa. By "unexplained" I mean unsupported by any news or statements by the company. There are always plenty of barrack room explanations.

    There's plenty more information available and deeper research may provide insight into some of the more inscrutable share price movements.

    I've typed this relevant info in a whisper in the hope of avoiding yet more abuse (not that it bothers me). By brummell

    Hi Carliol,

    Interesting to note that the "one" sell has been there as far back as I can remember. I wonder who that is. Investec used to be a "sell", but I think they are one of the holds now.

    I was browsing the net too to try and get some topics on the "rumour", but to no avail. Every article seem to be info from the same source, which is the Independent.
    The vol is up and fca report still has LD at 2.3%. But I guess as long as the SP stays the way it is, it is encouraging. In all past cases, SP spikes due to rumours of TO generally subsided
    after a couple of days, so this time, everything Is looking good in my view.

    Have a good day

    And mine! Given it was described as a bidding "war" between two different companies, I am really surprised at the lack of share price movement today. Even though it was in the Independent doesn't make it true I suppose...

    A great performance by TLW today, especially on a day when FTSE was so subdued. Interested in thoughts on if this is due to Nambia, general (long overdue) recovery for TLW, or whether the bid rumours have resurfaced... Thanks in advance. GLA
