On Monday March 31, 2014, the Minister of Energy issued 5 new Directives to the OPA, one of which directly impacts Rodan Energy and our DR3 program. “We were well aware of this Directive and believe that it is a step in the right direction. I am confident that all these initiatives announced by the Minister will be great for the industry over the coming year,” said Rodan President, Paul Grod.
