people didn't respond 'cause it is not a big issue, if they can pay, the drilling company can mobilize the rig into kenya, bp could mobilize their rig from gulf of mexico to the middle east... except for liberia i don't think the company could not deliver what they promised just a bit late(sproule seismic report...) they never say jv will happen next week or next month but rather they will take time, one analyst said they can attract jv by YEAR END..... not only smb a lot of penny stocks are at their lowest  point now.....
