Statoil Announces Exciting Exploration Plans for NCS in 2014

first_imgStatoil announces an exciting exploration programme in Norway also in 2014, building on the exploration successes of recent years.Statoil plans to drill 20-25 exploration wells on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) in 2014, of which around two-thirds will be Statoil-operated.“Statoil’s exploration success rate on the Norwegian continental shelf has been over 70% the last five years, compared to an industry average of 49%. This confirms that our exploration strategy is paying off,” says Gro G. Haatvedt, senior vice president for NCS exploration in Statoil.Statoil has a diversified exploration portfolio on the NCS targeting both growth prospects, opportunities in frontier areas and selected prospects in mature areas which can be tied into existing infrastructure.“We believe that our competence and experience throughout the value chain give us an advantage when prioritising the right prospects, performing efficient exploration and ensuring value creation,” says Haatvedt.Barents Sea campaign continuesStatoil will continue the exploration campaign in the Barents Sea in 2014 with 5-7 new wells. The company will test the potential in the Hoop area and continue exploration drilling around the Johan Castberg discoveries (Skrugard and Havis).Statoil is a partner in the OMV-operated Wisting Central discovery in PL537 announced in September, which opened a new oil play in the Hoop area. During Q2-Q3 of 2014 Statoil will drill the Atlantis and Apollo prospects in PL615, approximately 50 kilometres north of PL537.“The Apollo well will target the same geological formation as the Wisting Central well. We have a solid understanding of the subsurface and are well prepared to conduct safe and secure operations in this area of the NCS,” says Haatvedt.In the Johan Castberg area the Skavl prospect is currently being drilled, followed by the Kramsnø and Drivis prospects late 2013/early 2014.“We still believe we can find more oil in the Johan Castberg area to make the field development project more robust. Currently we are evaluating several prospects around Johan Castberg for drilling in 2014,” says Haatvedt.Hunting high-value barrels“In the North Sea our plan is to further explore around the King Lear discovery and continue our hunt for barrels in the greater Utsira High area. We will also pursue our exploration effort around existing infrastructure in order to discover timely high-value barrels for the new fast-track developments,” says Haatvedt.In the Johan Sverdrup/greater Utsira High area, the Geitungen appraisal will be drilled in PL265 at the turn of the year and Statoil will also drill the Tastaveden prospect in PL628.In 2012 Statoil made a significant gas and condensate discovery in the King Lear prospect. In 2014-2015 two new wells will be drilled in PL146/PL333. The Romeo prospect will test the potential north of King Lear, while the Julius prospect will both appraise the King Lear discovery and test additional potential south of the find. This is a high temperature and high pressure (HTHP) area, which Statoil has a strong record in handling.In the Norwegian Sea the focus next year will be to mature the deep-water exploration campaign in the Aasta Hansteen area which is planned to start in 2015.“We are confident there are new, exciting opportunities to be explored on the Norwegian continental shelf going forward,” concludes Haatvedt.Press Release, November 07, 2013last_img read more

Watford have ‘asked the most’ about player – Can leave if…

first_imgThe Strasbourg defender was key in his side’s comfortable table finish this season (11th) and his performances caught the eye of many clubs around Europe, including Watford.Using both Daryl Janmaat and Kiko Femenia in the position this season, Javi Gracia seems intent on adding a bit of quality to the role this summer, and Lala is supposedly on his list.L’Equipe on Thursday look at the player’s situation, explaining that despite all the attention, no official offers have arrived for Strasbourg to seriously consider.Embed from Getty ImagesAs things stand, Watford are the club to have ‘asked the most’ about the right-back, who will be allowed to leave if the right offer comes in.The main issue, according to the French newspaper, (and this is for everyone, not just the Hornets) is Lala’s age.At 27, few clubs are prepared to spend upwards of €12m on a player they would struggle to see any financial return on in a few years, which means Strasbourg, who ideally would like €15m for their star, might have to lower their demands, still leaving them with a nice profit considering they only paid around €700k for him back in 2017.Perhaps if they decide to let him go for less than €10m, Watford might come knocking more seriously.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: Cesc Fabregas quiet on return to the Emirates Stadium

first_imgChelsea players celebrated as a goalless draw against London rivals Arsenal took them closer to the Premier League title. 26/04/2015 Fabregas, and another ex-Blaugrana, Alexis Sanchez, were both quiet, although Arsenal fans weren’t when it came to dealing with the former. Referee Michael Oliver decided not to award any of them, and it led to a frantic finale, where Danny Welbeck fluffed his lines to waste Arsenal’s best chance of the game. Sport EN Ospina was lucky not to be sent off in the first half, coming flying out of his goal and taking out Oscar, who had flicked the ball over him. At the other end Arsenal appealed for a spot kick of their own when the ball hit Gary Cahill on the arm, but it was from close range and the defender didn’t know much about it.  Football wise, there was little, and Mourinho was happy with that. CEST Upd. at 20:21 center_img The Blues wanted three penalties in the first half, while Arsenal claimed they deserved one. The Brazilian had an earlier shout for a penalty, but it would have been a little harsh on Hector Bellerin, who gave him a gentle shove. Thibaut Courtois and David Ospina barely had a save to make, although they spent a lot of the game with their hearts in their mouths – it was that sort of match. This might not be beautiful but it’s certainly effective, and it should see Chelsea win their fifth Premier League title.  Former Barcelona star Fabregas wanted a penalty too, when he was tripped by Santi Cazorla, but still, nothing doing. It was as if the Blues boss had allowed his team to go out in the first half looking for a goal, but failing to find it he shut up shop in the second. Arsenal are the only side who really had a hope of overtaking Chelsea at the top, so the Blues were happy to take a point from this one, and they did, in classic Jose Mourinho fashion. He was substituted at the end of the game and although there were a lot of boos, some parts of the Emirates applauded the man who had been such an important part of their sides in the mid 00s.last_img read more

Stump mics could curb sledging in cricket – England all-rounder Moeen Ali

first_imgAdvertisement 76koNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs7fw55Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eplv28( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) zqr2Would you ever consider trying this?😱93dCan your students do this? 🌚901Roller skating! Powered by Firework England all-rounder Moeen Ali differs with coach Trevor Bayliss and believes turning up the stump microphones could curb sledging in cricket. West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel was banned for four one-day internationals on Wednesday after found guilty of ‘personal abuse’ aimed at England skipper Joe Root in the St Lucia test.Advertisement It follows a similar four-match ban on Sarfraz Ahmed after stump microphones caught the Pakistan captain’s on-field rant at South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo during a one-dayer in Durban last month.Moeen Ali believes stump mics should be used to catch out sledgers.“It’s time for people to behave themselves,” Moeen said before flying to West Indies for the five-match ODI series beginning at Bridgetown on Wednesday.Advertisement “Turn the stump mics up. Why turn them down? So people can swear? There is no reason to get personal.“… it’s the way society is: things come out of people’s mouths. You’re not going to get away with it now. You have to be careful.”Advertisement The 31-year-old’s view contrasts that of Bayliss who advocates turning down the microphones to protect players.“I’ve said it once before, no I’m not in favour of it and I’m not going to change my mind,” Bayliss said before Gabriel’s ban was announced.“I think (stump mics) should be down. I know there are people who think the opposite and think it is good for the game but sometimes in the heat of battle things are said, when guys given a bit of time to sit down and think about it would give themselves a bit of a kick up the backside.”Moeen, who in his autobiography claimed being called ‘Osama’ by an unidentified Australia player during the 2015 Ashes series, said turning up the microphones could also catch harmless, entertaining banter between players.“Imagine all the legendary old stories, if we had them recorded,” Moeen said.“We can do the same now. It doesn’t have to be swearing. Keep it funny. We want people to be attracted to the game. There’s brilliant ways to sledge.”  Advertisementlast_img read more
