Thanks to the Winnileaks service I have in my possession the presentation Reabold Resources (RBD) is serving up as it endeavours to raise up to £30 million. I gather it is tough going. The deal will come as a shock to joint brokers Turner Pope and Whitman Howard as it is Stifel Europe that is acting as broker. The presentation says the deal will be announced October 8. Ho Ho.
When Union Jack Oil (UJO) confirmed the results of the West Newton A2 drill in June, we were told consent was in place for the extended well test and this would go ahead in Q3 of this year. With all too many UK onshore drills impacted by delays due to difficulties obtaining planning consents everything sounded very positive. This week however has seen the operator make a planning application for the well test phase, which introduces timing risk.
