Nudge, Nudge, Winx, Winx - all sorts of games were played around this drill!

I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.


The drilling and testing of the Winx-1 well on the North Slope, in Alaska, has been so farcical that it would almost be comical if it wasn’t for the fact that vast sums of money have been lost as a result of it. As is the norm with this type of exploration drill, social media has been awash with all sorts of rumours, and self-proclaimed drilling/reservoir engineers seem to have sprung out of nowhere armed with diagrams to show why it would be a huge find and was even better than some of the existing discoveries in the region – in reality though, many of the ‘experts’ are online avatars and could just as easily be someone who works down the local chippie and their actual experience of oil involves a deep fat fryer!...
