Management Comment: "ACDP considers itself fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in such a large scale oil and gas play resident onshore in the USA. The combination of continued restrictions on offshore drilling, turmoil in the far east, and surging oil prices (recently over $ 89 per barrel), all of which affects demand – supply balance; makes this an attractive and timely business opportunity to fast track shareholder value."
