I could have written your post myself(not quite as eloquently) word for word. I think you must have been reading my mind telepathically, lol. From memory, I was a callow, fresh faced youth when my initial investment went in here.
Anyway, as you say, yet again our sp has taken a considerable knock back. Let us hope that this is the last time it happens, and we finally get the reward that we are hoping for.
As regards BP, I hope you are correct. My own feeling has been for a considerable time that one of the National Chinese oil companies will rear it’s head, baring in mind who our largest shareholder is(with two directors on the HUR board), and where the majority of their investment money comes from. Anyway, time will tell.
Like yourself, I just want to see this put to bed. Not just for all of us shareholders, but also as an ultimate reward to Dr Trice and his hard working colleagues for their total commitment and belief in this project.
All the best.
