Tbf, flow testing rates are not a direct indication of actual boepd once production online.

Notwithstanding that, it is a tough place to do business at the moment and these are relative drops in the ocean. Companies need to work together more to keep costs down and we all need to pray the oil price stays at a commercial price.

Should we all be praying now? Only the Fred takes up most of the day and in the evening I just like a cup of tea. I wouldn't be able to devote myself full time to the old praying.

Peak prayer time for hydrocarbon based wishes is 1945 - 2000.

God has a few priorities but this is fixed in his calendar.



Cannot let the Arabs get the price too low - if they squeeze out the rest they will completely screw us. when they are the only players in town.

But the Arabs pray five times a day. We just can't compete with that.

I know some people who tried to eat fruit/veg at prayer time to ensure they got their 5 a day

They had their chance and the Lumsdens bottled it

Tbf, with the recent fall in oil prices their economic forecasts went from wildly optimistic to plain kamikaze economics.
