Exxon makes another oil discovery offshore Guyana

first_imgU.S. oil giant ExxonMobil is again announcing “positive results” in its oil exploratory efforts in Guyana, this time confirming a new discovery in the Snoek well offshore Guyana in the Stabroek Block.Drilling targeted similar-aged reservoirs as encountered in previous discoveries at Liza and Payara, Exxon said.President David Granger meeting with ExxonMobil executives at State House on Wednesday“The latest discovery at Snoek demonstrates the continued success we have achieved in this technically complex play, which is just part of the significant exploration province offshore Guyana”, President of ExxonMobil Exploration Company, Steve Greenlee, has said.ExxonMobil began drilling of the Snoek well on February 22, 2017, and encountered some 82 feet (25 metres) of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs.The well was drilled to a depth of 16,978 feet (5,175 metres) in 5,128 feet (1,563 metres) of water on March 18. The Snoek well is located in the southern portion of the Stabroek Block, approximately 5 miles (9 km) to the southeast of the 2015 Liza-1 discovery.Following completion of the Snoek well, the Stena Carron drillship has moved back to the Liza area to drill the Liza-4 well.“As we continue to evaluate the full potential of the broader Stabroek Block, we are also taking the necessary steps to ensure the safe, cost-efficient and responsible development of this world-class resource, which can provide long-term, sustainable benefits to the people of Guyana,” the company’s President said.The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometres). Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is operator and holder of 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. holds 30 percent interest, and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana Limited holds 25 percent interest.As for the Liza discovery, ExxonMobil drilled three wells in there, and is now getting ready to drill the fourth. The Liza-1 well was drilled in March 2015, while the Liza-2 well was drilled in June 2016. ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana, responsible for all drilling activities on behalf of ExxonMobil in Guyana, drilled the Liza-3 well in October last year.In December, ExxonMobil awarded a contract to SBM Offshore to supply an FPSO unit for the Liza development, which is estimated to hold in excess of 1 billion oil-equivalent barrels.President David Granger has, on Wednesday, informed executives of the oil company of Government’s commitment to the development of Guyana’s oil and gas sector in an atmosphere of transparency and trust, so that the Parliamentary Opposition and the people of Guyana could be fully involved in the process.The Head of State made the comments during a meeting with a visiting delegation of ExxonMobil Executives at State House. The meeting was to discuss matters related to the status of exploratory and appraisal work in the Stabroek Block. The President said it is important that there are regular and accurate announcements on matters pertaining to the development of the sector.“We are committed to the norm of transparency…so that we can move forward at a domestic level, not only in an atmosphere of transparency, but trust; so that all Guyana would see this not as a short term bonanza; so that Guyanese will see this as a national industry… In this regard, we are walking step by step as the developments take place offshore and the developments in terms of our legislation within our regulatory framework — in terms of the passage of information to various stakeholders in Guyana and the diaspora — so that we can create an environment which is stable and secure,” the President said.The company’s President, Steven Greenlee, said that the discussions with President Granger were very fruitful, and that they look forward to a strengthened productive and transparent relationship. “It was a very positive meeting. We are all very happy that we have such a cordial relationship with the Government; a very productive and transparent relationship,” he said.Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, who also attended the meeting, echoed the President’s sentiments in an invited comment, stating that the engagement was part of an ongoing dialogue which aims to strengthen the relationship between Guyana and ExxonMobil.“As we progress together, we have to do so in an open and transparent way, being mindful that we are in a parliamentary democracy. We have to ensure that the Opposition and other stakeholders are made aware of what is happening,” Trotman said.last_img read more

Man United warned off Bale as Real Madrid chief declares: ‘He is not for sale at any price’

first_img Gareth Bale Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told Manchester United that Gareth Bale is not for sale at any price.United have been tipped to launch a £100million-plus move for the former Tottenham star next summer.Reports in Spain recently suggested Real would be receptive to an offer for Bale, who cost them a world record £85.3million fee 16 months ago.But Perez has dismissed the speculation regarding the Welshman’s future as untrue, insisting there is no chance he will allow Bale to leave the Bernabeu.“We have not received an offer from Manchester or any other club for Gareth Bale,” Perez was quoted as saying on Marca’s website.“We would never listen to any offer for Bale, no matter what the fee.”United were in the running to sign Bale when he left Tottenham in September 2013 but he opted to move to Spain, where he has enjoyed considerable success since.The 25-year-old was part of the Madrid team that lifted the Champions League last season and he also won the Copa del Rey in his first year at the club.Bale has so far scored 11 goals this season for Madrid, who are top of the Primera Division. 1last_img read more

first_imgChildren at teaching seasonA group from LYIT has travelled to India with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for those less well off than ourselves.Those who arrived in India yesterday are lecturer Mary Dunnion, lecturer Dr Kevin O’Brien and students Tony Mc Gilloway, Shaun Gallagher, Elaine Coleman, Siobhan Carty, Niamh Fleming and Fiona Sammon. All the students travelling are part of the nursing degree programme at LYIT.Tony McGilloway is sending regular letters from India on their work. Here’s his first dispatch. Hi Folks,Yesterday was a good day, we were joined by two other Habitat teams, one from the Netherlands the other from Northern Irelands Queens University, one of their team is a Donegal woman from, Cranford, Clenagh Harkin. It took every member of all three teams to get the concrete roof finished, there was a small cement mixer there but everything else was done by hand. The family that were taking ownership of the house helped and they were delighted to get this part of their house completed as according to the group leaders the roof cost about a third of the complete house because it has to be reinforced to protect the family from as mentioned in the last letter, cyclones, floods and earthquakes. Shaun, Mary and myself, want to thank all those who sponsored us, especially those from our individual communities of Dungloe, Castlefinn and Dunfanaghy for their help as it would not have been possible for us to be here without their help.Today we spent the day with village school children. Charly, our Habitat coordinator felt that because our team specialise in health, that the children would benefit from health education. So we presented a lesson based on hygiene, fitness and diet. The girls on the team took the girls of the school and the boys took the boys. We had interpreters who translated our lesson. The children were very attentive and seemed to really enjoy the lesson. One thing that we all found interesting was that the children had in many of their pencil cases cut-outs of the graphic warnings of cigarette smoking that are on tobacco products and they traded them. When we allowed them to ask us a few questions, we were amazed by their scientific knowledge and rather than ask us about Ireland, they seemed more concerned about the health of their parents. They wanted to know things like what the bad effects of working at night time are and how they could help their parents stop smoking. So all in all, today was a very good day and we hope that we provided the children with knowledge that may empower them into making healthy choices. Tomorrow we are back on the building site; let’s hope the heat drops slightly from the relentless 40 degrees we have experienced so far.Shaun and Tony Pondicherry, India. Jason, Tony Mc Gilloway, Kevin O’Brien and Shaun Gallagher at Teaching season.Tony from The LYIT team along with some of Habitats N.

Virginia relives its biggest upset

first_img Florida State lost because it had no answer for Hagans, who used his speed to get away from defenders all night, repeatedly buying time and completing passes on the run. Virginia finished with only 20 yards rushing, on only 28 attempts. The Cavaliers defense, bolstered by the return of All-ACC linebacker Ahmad Brooks, intercepted Weatherford twice in the first half to set up 10 points, and had only allowed 10 points entering the fourth quarter. The early touchdown came on a 58-yard run by Lorenzo Booker (St. Bonaventure of Ventura) in the first quarter, but then Virginia’s defense stiffened. Until the fourth quarter, when Weatherford covered 47 yards in two plays – a 25-yard pass to Willie Reid and a dump off that Davis took 22 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown. Weatherford also hit 6-foot-6 Greg Carr for the 2 points. After Virginia failed to get a first down for the second series in a row, the Seminoles drove 73 yards in 11 plays, ending with Cismesia’s 32-yard field goal. The Cavaliers led 23-10 at halftime, getting their second touchdown with 19 seconds left when Hagans was flushed from the pocket, scrambled right and hit Wali Lundy, who dodged several defenders and made a final lunge to get the ball into the end zone. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MOORPARK – An 350-pound male tiger escaped from an unlicensed wildlife sanctuary and prowled the hills of eastern Ventura County for weeks before being shot and killed in February – sparking legislation to protect the public and prevent abuse by people who keep wild animals in captivity. Animal activists criticized wildlife officials for killing rather than tranquilizing the cat, but authorities said they acted on behalf of public safety to prevent the animal from harming someone. The large cat was shot near a park, a housing development and a school along the 23 Freeway. Gert “Abby” and Roena “Emma” Hedengran are scheduled to be arraigned in January on charges including obstruction of justice. They have pleaded not guilty and have denied owning the tiger.last_img read more
