ENI-Agip's declaration of Force Majeure does seem to indicate that Agip would not be paying UMUsadege partners for oil that does not flow down the pipeline.  I mean ... let's be realistic with expectations.  Given Mart's unwillingness to be open with communications, we will be kept in the dark for a few months about the "material" impact to current Q revenues due flood damage to the pipeline. 

I have assumed no oil will pass thru the pipeline from UMU facilities until early December, and I have to expect current Q revenues may be reduced by 1/3 or more vs. last Q.

'peeker

=====================
 
I am not quite sure what is so hard to understand, let alone ignoring comments from people that ave been in this play for years. Furthermore I would suggest to you that indeed in the past Mart was not always up to date in its disclosure, but I for one, can vouch that there has been an enormous change of attitude on that front and although not perfect, I trust that Investors with some elbow grease can find the information they are looking for.
 
In your case here, I appreciate your hypothesis but it leads me to believe that you might not have read a MD&A in a very very long time - so allow me to post verbatum, in hope that this puts these worries and unwarranted hypotesis to bed !
 
=======================
Excerpt:
 
Oil produced from the Umusadege field is sold pursuant to an oil purchase agreement with ENI Trading &
Shipping S.p.A. ("ENI") a subsidiary of ENI S.p.A. ENI S.p.A is also the parent company of Nigerian Agip
Oil Company Ltd. ("Agip"), the operator of the export pipeline.
-
The crude oil purchase agreement requires that Umusadege field owners confirm or "nominate" in advance the volumes of petroleum to be delivered to ENI. Historically, ENI has paid for petroleum been physically delivered.
-
 
Accordingly, Mart continued to receive cash flow during export pipeline disruptions. A situation in which petroleum is nominated and paid for but not delivered is called an "over lift" with the delivery shortfall constituting "deficit oil".

Any more question on that front ?
