If IOC doesn't state the bid info then ot will come up in the Q and A after the call.
The bids extend through the 28th. The night of the 28th IOC will issue a press release and identify the bidders by type. Number of Super Major Bids. number of NOC bids , number of utility bids. The bidders names will not be revealed. Additionally the date the Board will select a winner will be revealed in that same Press Release.
A bitter man you are. Did you think that an early T2 resource estimate would have an effect on an EA SD? Maybe you did. Were you planning to hold IOC until T2 gas began flowing? I bet not. You are always so pessimistic I'm sure you would want to bail post EA SD. So why the beef?
As an aside dou you think that a few more wells at Tri might increase the estimate?
In any case everything hinges on the EA SD anyway. No additional value has EVER been given to T2. The intial drilling nor the PRE deal moved the needle.
I am own 9,200 IOC shares so you can bet I want everything you say to actually happen; however I can not see how IOC could announce an actual date for selecting a winner because bids are complicated and require an unknown amount of time for analysis. A partner will be selected in March as stated in the earnings statement. Lawyers may advise IOC not to even categorize the type of bidders to be certain there is no violation of confidentiality agreement.
