Purchase of producing Santos assets and change of strategy makes me think they are not going to see Fortuna through to production

Sell Tanzania , sell Fortuna project including gas assets , sell Far east stuff , and then return cash to shareholders , on my calculations it's probably worth around 280 pence as it stands !

The Fortuna economics still make sense but you need the right counterparties around the table that can reduce all the risks involved. NewAge and Bvln appear to be going about it the right way with a new build concept backed by investors with pocket of capital. Nick lost market credibility and the EG govt lost hope in the same promises he was making to them. Too bad as given now that the HiliEsp has loaded first cargo in Cameroon the stars were beginning to align for this development plan. I wonder if a Bvln Ophir consolidation makes sense.

At least NC's wife can stop pestering him now.

"To me that reads as if they have been talking to candidates and have made a decision" - that would fit with the fact they have already announced that NC will stay on only so long as to provide a short handover - how else could they know already that the handover will be short?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoPlfcytwOY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h407hURTMH0 Why they ever got rid of Bill Higgs last year is a total mystery - such a super competent guy especially on LNG -on his left is his excellency who these days is probably thinking the same. PS He joined Genel just 3 months after being sacked.They knew how good he was. Now Coopers gone you do have the sense they really have lost their way and would just like some cash in the bank from a Fortuna sale. As others have said they are effectively distressed sellers of Fortuna - my estimate circa 300m$ for sale - so much less than market expectations but worth 1£ on the share price post sale and an easy life for Directors.

I think it was the comments from the politician that forced the chairman's hand...

Booth will see this through to a clean sale/takeover. Could be. I'm struck by the sudden announcement with immediate effect, replaced temporarily by a long-time NED. To me that reads as if they have been talking to candidates and have made a decision, and need time for the person to clear his desk. Booth is a safe pair of hands but if he were in the frame they would have announced him as permanent. I'd forgotten Booth had Buzzard in his CV, Buzzard plus Catcher is good exploration genes, but probably not what IIs want at this point. If they are soldiering on they need someone who can get Fortuna financed or sold, and who has that prominently in his CV. (Jake Ulrich late of Sterling Resources?)

Ophir is a strange beast - there's no Oil co quite like it and very difficult to value. Its not so easy to see who exactly might want the whole caboodle. Big oil or something like it would naturally want the African east coast/west coast gas but likely are just going to regard the rest of the new portfolio as an irrelevance and want to sell unless they could easily assimilate the asian assets. To me only a big Chinese company fits that bill . I think more likely a single deal to sell Fortuna. I added at 63p - I think its an intriguing play .

There won't be a new CEO. Booth will see this through to a clean sale/takeover.

Nothing to stop Alan Booth taking over on a permanent basis if he wants the job. I suspect this will get bought out at a price that will at least Salamander holders recoup most of their cash or else profit if they have bought in to Ophir at the lows.

Not sure they have the time or the luxury. Hostile takeover looks certain.

nigelpm I don't have a clue what Malcy's arrangements are, but I never understood why he didn't call out the old BLVN BoD in his coverage of that situation.

Well Nigel I doubt FRR would continue paying him if he reported what he really thinks of them. Either that or he is a total idiot either way is there any point paying any attention to what he has to offer?

The more pertinent question I have is not whether he is paid - I suspect that's almost a given and have never really thought that was in doubt and actually don't have a major problem with it as long as he discloses it. My real question is does he get paid to divert from his genuine views (which might be him being naive/too bullish) or not - I can't really judge that. However as has been pointed out to me his views on FRR have been incredibly gullible and naive if he isn't a pump and dump merchant.

He definitely isn't paid by all companies. I worked for one he covered and I know he wasn't paid and whether he is particularly respected by mgt teams of oil companies is another thing as well LOL.
