Analyst comments

“These new finds and geophysical data collected by Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) have firmly established India as the world's latest deepwater and ultradeepwater destination… the number of discoveries made in the last 2 years is already twice that of the previous 10 years. The unique success of India's east coast is likely to be repeated in several other areas… along the deepwater areas of the southern tip, west coast, & Andaman Sea regions.”

June 9, 2003Oil & Gas Journal

“[The discovery] has the potential to be one of the most significant discoveries in Cairn's (and India's) history. Cairn's majority stake & strong relationships with its Indian partners indicate there should be few commercial or political obstacles to the development of the block”

January 19, 2004Merrill Lynch

“The discovery (by Cairn Energy), one of the most significant in India's history, could also prove to be one of largest in the world this year. But it is the prospect of further discoveries that has jump-started the imaginations of investors.”

January 20, 2004Financial Times

“It is true that the Indian exploration sector has become a lot more attractive after discoveries by Reliance and Cairn… Cairn & Niko have certainly proved that India and Bangladesh may not be as frightening a prospect for smaller players as some may believe. On top of that, Cairn is no longer as small as it once was and has now established its place in the FTSE-100 list on the London Stock Exchange. Perhaps this really speaks for itself.”
