Well, well, what a surprise: AIM-listed Frontera Resources (FRR) has raised cash in a placing. Well OK, it is not a surprise at all. As I pointed out HERE the works programme of the company was going to cost a few quid which it simply did not have. As we shall see, the workover rig out at the Ud-2 well in Georgia has prepared the site for testing of gas bearing intervals but until last night there was no money to pay for the testing.

Sound Energy (SOU) has been one of the best performing small oil companies this year in terms of its share price, but when you take a closer look it is hard to see how it justifies anywhere remotely close to its current valuation.
