Take a look at SD under the yahoo highlight articles. You will see one about Syria and our oil market place. This story could well be true for TPLM. These small companies own tons of land but lack the resources for accelerated drilling needs due to emergency times like this. So what is to stop the Exxons out there who HAVE the big bucks to make it happen... to keep from buying out the little players and get things going. We have a serious need to be energy independent as Syria/Egypt/Iran/Iraq are constant reminders that we need to take this drilling serious. Its just my opinion, but I think buyouts are coming soon. Very soon. Its time we take care of our own!!!
