I have not seen any comments about book losses on fields due to low oil prices. Do analysts understand basic book keeping and mark to market? We’ll find out on Thursday, I guess

In the absence of the economies of scale that would have been provided by the presence of other operators in the region, Shell will now have to pay 100% of the costs of the required infrastructure. In conjunction with a $45 oil price, and an understanding of the realities of operating in the region, I suspect that the economics of the Alaskan adventure are now looking rather poor. Time for a $6 billion write off?

America to eventually become an immensely wealthy shipping magnate. I am curious. Where did this dude get his investment capital from ?? Pilfered Nazi gold (i.e., Jewish gold) ?? He apparently fled with a bundle of cash. I am certain that an unemployed ex-Waffen SS officer with a bad reputation would not get anywhere without ‘friends’ and ‘contacts’ from the old world. Can anyone elucidate ??
