[BGL LIGUE] Le Progrès en mode machine

first_imgTrois minutes totalement folles!Les coéquipiers d’Aldin Dervisevic sont touchés moralement et gênés par un adversaire dur à bouger. La présence sur le côté droit de Bourtal représente bien une rampe de lancement pour les Vert et Blanc, mais la frappe croisée de l’attaquant de l’USH lèche la base du poteau de Flauss (37e). À la mi-temps, on se dit que les jeux sont faits et que le Progrès va tranquillement rentrer à la maison la besace bien pleine. À coup sûr, personne n’imagine le scénario qui va suivre. Piqués au vif, les locaux vont se réveiller de fort belle façon et y croire en l’espace de deux minutes complètement folles. C’est tout d’abord Lamotte entré en jeu à la mi-temps à la place de Wang, qui voit sa frappe des 20 mètres finir sa course dans le petit filet (1-3, 70e) avant que Yala au terme d’un exploit personnel au milieu de trois défenseurs ne trompe la vigilance de Flauss (2-3, 71e).Et Yala est tout près de porter le coup fatal à une défense du Progrès aux abois durant trois minutes (73e). Le leader, qui n’avait pas encaissé de but durant 160 minutes en championnat, est tout proche d’en prendre trois en trois minutes!Mais malgré tout, il va savoir faire le dos rond et inscrire un quatrième but au meilleur moment. Sur un cafouillage dans la surface, Muratovic d’une frappe à mi-hauteur trompe la vigilance de Pleimling (2-4, 74e). Le Progrès peut de nouveau bomber le torse puisqu’il va même anéantir définitivement les derniers espoirs locaux sur une formidable accélération balle au pied de Muratovic et un centre parfait au second poteau le plat du pied de Tekiela (2-5, 81e).Dans la foulée, Yala s’offre un deuxième exploit dans la défense niederkornoise (3-5, 83e). Insuffisant.G. T./LQ Niederkorn s’est fait légèrement peur à Hostert (3-5), dimanche, mais a surtout fait étalage, de nouveau, d’une force de frappe offensive plus qu’évidente. Les hommes de Roland Vrabec ont quand même inscrit la bagatelle de neuf buts en deux rencontres.Les joueurs du Progrès ne vont pas ménager leurs forces durant le premier quart d’heure pour parfaitement gérer leur affaire. Avec un jeu qui penche dès les premières minutes sur le côté gauche, De Almeida provoque et se crée des brèches sur ses premières accélérations. Il ne faut guère plus de sept minutes à l’attaquant du Progrès pour se trouver à la conclusion d’un centre de Françoise et donner l’avantage à son camp (0-1). Avec des décalages sur les côtés et du jeu long parfaitement distillé par Thill, les ardeurs locales vont vite être refroidies avec un deuxième but de la tête de Karayer sur une belle offrande de De Almeida (0-2, 11e). Une minute auparavant, Hostert avait déjà dû une fière chandelle à son gardien sur une tête de Vogel.À 0-2, la partie tourne alors définitivement à l’avantage d’un ensemble niederkornois au sein duquel il devient de plus en plus facile de faire circuler le ballon face à un adversaire trop tendre notamment dans le secteur offensif malgré la détermination de Stumpf et Bourtal. Pour les hommes de René Peters, le score va encore basculer du mauvais côté peu avant la demi-heure. Une nouvelle incursion dans la surface du remuant De Almeida profite à Françoise qui, libre de tout marquage, propulse le ballon au fond (0-3, 29e). Partagerlast_img read more

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

Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgOlympic Opportunities We are reducing taxes for Canadians from all walks of life and, in particular, for low and middle-income earners, families and seniors.  When we reduce the tax burden on Canadians, they are able to spend this money on their families’ priorities.  This also helps stimulate the economy and create jobs. You may also wish to find out more about the Olympic Torch Relay, which is coming to Prince George-Peace River in late January and early February.  Prince George, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John and Fort Nelson have been selected as “Celebration Communities” where events will be held.  In between, you can follow the Torch Relay along its route through “Torch Communities” including McBride, Mackenzie, Chetwynd, Hudson’s Hope and Tumbler Ridge. These new thresholds mean that eligible families with two children will receive additional benefits of up to $436 a year starting in July 2009. This is the best opportunity BC residents will ever have to become involved in an Olympic event.  If you are interested in taking part in the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver-Whistler, there are many employment and volunteer opportunities to explore. The ACG complements the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant, which our Government introduced in Budget 2006, encouraging Canadians to pursue careers in the skilled trades.  Unfortunately, despite higher general unemployment rates arising from the global recession, shortages in the skilled trades continue to persist. “News to Know:  Apprenticeship Completion Grants and Olympics Opportunities” Two other items also introduced in our Economic Action Plan took effect on July 1st.  The National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS) and Canada Child Tax Benefit provide targeted tax benefits for low-income families with children.  The thresholds at which they start to be phased-out has now been raised to $23,710 and $40,726 respectively. You can imagine the workforce required to run a successful international event of this magnitude, and the Vancouver 2010 organizers require everything from shuttle bus drivers to administrative assistants to operations managers and protocol coordinators. center_img Volunteer opportunities are another way to participate and you could be part of a team of 25,000 that is welcoming the world to Canada.  There are positions available at the opening, closing and victory ceremonies.  Also required are pre-game volunteers and those to help out during sports events. Applications are now being accepted for the Apprenticeship Completion Grant, a cash grant of $2,000 for registered apprentices who successfully complete their apprenticeship training and obtain journeyperson certification in a designated Red Seal trade on or after January 1, 2009.  The ACG was introduced in Budget 2009 as part of our Conservative Government’s Economic Action Plan. It’s time to update you on some opportunities and news that you may wish to research and explore over the summer weeks. MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.
