Joint Receivers and Managers of the Southern Pacific Petroleum Group Mr David Winterbottom and Mr Angus Blackwood of Ernst & Young, today announced the completion of the sale of the majority of the business and assets of the Southern Pacific Petroleum Group to Queensland Energy Resources Ltd - the price will not be sufficient to repay the secured creditor and therefore there will be no surplus for distribution to unsecured creditors or shareholders of SPP from the receivership14/04/2004
receivers and managers control of the business of the SPP Group will continue until completion of the contract for the sale of the business - this contract is subject to a number of third party approvals and it is not anticipated that completion will occur before 31 March 2004 - following the sale, the receivers and managers will remain as such of SPP and Central Pacific Minerals NL until finalisation of the transfer of non-material assets from that company to the purchaser - given that some non-material assets may not transfer for some time, these companies may be in receivership until those transfers are effected - the contract of sale allows up to 2 years for asset transfers to occur22/03/2004

Hi, I've also got 2,664 shares in SSP which I believed to be a dead duck but now seems like it might just about swim? Are they worth anything and can I get Laguna shares in place of SSP shares?
