HRT Participacoes em Petroleo SA (HRTP) made its debut on the TSX Venture in 2011 after the Brazilian company bought Calgary-based Universal Energy and its offshore assets in Namibia. HRTP expects to start offshore African drilling early next year. Following results from HRT-8 well in August, the stock has rallied 40 per cent. This month, filing activity by Peter O'Brien, an HRTP director, caught our attention. Between Nov. 14 and 15, he bought two million shares in the public market.
