THE Falklands rollercoaster continues. The latest twist is that Falklands Oil and Gas (FOGL) is to take over operatorship from partner BHP Billiton. This means FOGL maintains control over its exploration programme, but has the benefits of BHP sharing the costs of drilling and depositing funds in an escrow account. Investors may be tempted at current levels, as the share price has been at over 250p in the past. Capital CFDs quotes 84.8p-85.9p for Falklands Oil and Gas.
