@birdman - perhaps it is the Christmas spirit, but to my mind, this is the best piece of news in a year because it represents something concrete in a time when much is quicksand. (Kinda wish Saint Nick would have delivered a bit more than a ten cent spike - just being honest). Probably once the pent-up selling pressure that is tax loss season disappears, this will be seen as better news.


Also, if Repsol makes any headway against Argentina et al, things may come roaring back to life.
