Gulf Keystone confirms court win

Aim-listed oil and gas explorer Gulf Keystone Petroleum yesterday confirmed that an English court had dismissed all claims by Excalibur Ventures, which argued that it was owed a 30 per cent interest in GKP’s assets in Kurdistan. The court has set 13 December as the date to hand down its full judgement, having provided a summary of its decision on 10 September. The firm hopes to move up to a main market listing “as soon as practicable” in 2014.
