Re: Profit Forecast Sincere apologies, I must have missed these, and yes I am an exceptionally rash investor.Would you be kind as to let me know then what the consensus is on expected EBITDA annually for 10 years from FY 2017/18, assuming that the planned projects will let's say have a 50% probability of success?Many thanks.
Re: Russian Navy! Forgive me if this is way off topic and I admit it is but...With this reference to the Russian navy I wonder how others are finding the relentless spin in just about all the media against Russian actions in Syria as highly hypocritical as me. Am I alone in this? We went into Afghanistan in the first place to root out Al Qaeda. We ended up fighting the Taliban. Then Bush sold the ludicrous lie that Saddam Hussein was somehow supporting AQ in Iraq. I don't think anyone in UK believed that but it was the idea sold to US. The US killed Bin Laden because he headed Al Qaeda. So Al Queda must be a significant enemy. Right? But now it seems when the Russians are attacking East Aleppo rebel areas a large amount of which is held by Al Nusra which until recently ( and a name change which fools nobody) were openly affiliated to Al Qaeda.So Russia is attacking Al Qaeda affiliated rebel group. Which is what we were doing in Afghanistan and afterwards.However when Russian planes are involved attacking this enemy is a war crime and utterly heinous according to our foreign secretary Boffo. Now of course civilian deaths are awful but its the nature of Civil wars to involve civilians. American drones killings involve civilian deaths. Yemen being bombed. etc etc. Cast minds back to WW2 and what the Allies did to German and Japanese cities full of civilians. War crimes all? Just asking because I find it hard to listen to the news these days. Are they trying to drag into a new cold war with Russia in which we are now defending Al Qaeda?Find it hard to credit.OK sorry back to silenc
Re: Profit Forecast Are you serious? Discussion of profitability of MSAR happens all the time here! Have you just bought in without doing any research?
Profit Forecast I have always been concerned that the lack of profitability forecasts by the BOD (suitably risk assessed) was a sign of uncertainty/under confidence/flawed technology/unsafe contracts or some other surprise that we have not been told about. After all we are on the AIM (and I have just lost a pile on XEL).However, I have heard from IR that the company is not permitted to issue its own profit forecasts. I also assume that the royalty percentage is commercially sensitive as well.This reassures me that it is what it is. The many years testing the fuel on a static engine and now on the extensive 4000hr seaborne trials (almost exhausting the patience of many investors) really does mean that the technology works and that it should bring both commercial and environmental benefits.Just for fun then, does anyone care to have a go at working out likely future profitability based on the three business streams, marine, refinery and power generation, eventually succeeding? Then we can all chip in with probabilities, risks, timeframes, margins, costs etc to estimate future income. Of course DYOR applies.GLALTH
Re: Reading the SP rise right? Doh! It has just been pointed out to me that I referred to the wrong month last night in referring to Hargreaves Lansdowne's deadline for the open offer. It is of course 26th October, not November.T
Re: Barclays Stockbrokers Me too.. sold a few ASA to top up through the Open Offer, not that the current QFI share price is much higher.

Re: Just a Ship Seago Istanbul left Valencia on 13th Oct at about 120Hrs, she sailed to Felixtowe Trinity Terminal where I am sure our engineers were able to have a good look at progress. She stayed about 24 hours in port 19th through 20th Oct and has since left Felixtowe and is now at anchor in the Bremerhaven anchorage awaiting a berth in that port.She has put on a further 122HRS steaming on MSAR for a new total of 1651Hrs and that is 41% of the LONO trial hrs. Her ECA work since entering just off Brest and navigating the channel to Felixtowe and onward to Bremerhaven anchorage is 41Hrs. This gives a new combined fuels total of 332Hrs approx. which is 49.5% of the total LONO trial hrs.The combined hrs total is roughly 20% more than the MSAR hrs total, so we might expect the MSAR trial to continue for about 1.8-2 months beyond the combined hrs total. Combined trial is on target for an end March/3rd April completion. MSAR is on target for a 4th week or end of May finish.Next update 27 or 28th when she should be in the Bay of Biscay on the way to filling up in Algeciras.
Russian Navy! Has anyone told Putin about QFI,,as by looking at the photos of his aircraft carrier off the coast of Scotland it could sure do with "our fuel"!!! Could top up on its way round the Med,,,,,!Just a bit of humour to start the day,,,,,,
Re: Reading the SP rise right? If you interrogate the help section of the HL website it says the same thing, but I think a phone call will be required to make it happen. Their deadline for elections/bids is the 26th November.T
