PRAHOVA. LONDON. Warrant for 10 Ordinary Shares of £1. green, black. #150000. No 527. Formed 1908 to acquire oil-leases in the Prahova district of Rumania. At this date had 20 wells in production, and others being developed. Prahova, near Ploesti, was the heart of the Rumanian oil industry. The wells, plant, machinery and other property in Rumania were destroyed by the British Military Mission in late 1916, doubtless to stop Austria using them. Operations restarted after WW1 where possible. Most shares were acquired in 1921 by Phoenix Oil & Transport Co.Ltd, formed to take over various British oil companies in Rumania whose assets had been destroyed in the War. Anglo-Roumanian was finally liquidated in 1936. Text in English and French.
