    The rulers must have known about this oil discovery a fair while ago if they reckon it’ll be ready for production in 12 months. At least 18 months of imaging and exploration is required before production can start. Of course there are any number of reasons why this has been kept quiet until now, ranging from the dull and practical to the outrageously cynical…
