Share Tip – Sound Oil

Make some black gold noise…

On their journey to mid-cap status, Sound Oil PLC (LSE:SOU.L) are an AIM listed small cap with a pure Italian play of operations.  On the discussion forums of the ii and lse, investors are currently awaiting news of rig arrival and impending production post June/July at Nervesa.

Earlier this month first gas was delivered at Rapagnano with a production rate of 14,600m cubic metres daily. However analyst Fox Davies are expressing caution with regards to Rapagnanos concessional downgrade in the recent weeks.

7.5p – 8p has been a significant holding region for the last few months and analyst have a rating of around 24p short term.

Sound have also been tweeting some sporadic messages, that include photos of progress – nice to see a company using social media to interact with potential and current investors.  Their LinkedIn account currently shows the unloading of trucks at site!


They think its all over, it is now!

Wow! A year almost gone!


Been a whirlwind of almost another year since last post! Finally finished my MSc IT Management at Newport Uni, which has merged to the new South Wales University and carried out Dissertation on SME’s Business Continuity and IT Alignment, finalising on around 18K words.  Seems like such a slog, but at the same time well worth the effort.


Also, developed some cycling designs with, plus an instagram feed of actual gear we have designed in the last year. Winter Jersey’s, Coffee Cups and Italian Race bags.  We have a small following, so it is good to see some like-minded cyclists in the region buying local quality goods from small independents.

Mon Wheelers Club Kit

The Monwheelers have also been very active, recruiting around 35 members and taking part in our local Wiggle Wye Valley Sportive. Our FB group has grown pretty well and there is plenty of banter, usual jibes and crazy photos. If you are in South Wales and fancy some social riding get in touch here or  here !


Currently at AlphabyteIT where I have been wearing many, many hats over the year – Learnt some further Sharepoint, SQL, C#, WordPress and technical skills for the portfolio.   A spot of Business Developing with Management System and some Business Analyst projects. Updated my LinkedIN profile to reflect my experience in the last year.
