Oil and gas company Jadestone Energy has signed a rig contract for infill drilling on the Stag oilfield located offshore Australia.Jadestone informed on Monday that Ensco Australia had agreed to provide the Ensco 107 jack-up drilling rig to Jadestone, after completion of its current operation in Dampier, Western Australia.Jadestone intends to drill the Stag-49H well from the Stag wellhead platform, as a horizontal oil producer, targeting unswept pay in the Stag reservoir southwest of the platform. The well will target approximately 1.2 mmbbl of incremental oil reserves from the field.The company is planning to spud the Stag-49H well in early March 2019 and drilling operations are expected to take approximately 34 days.Paul Blakeley, President and CEO commented “I am pleased to have signed the rig contract with Ensco to drill Stag-49H, the first infill well at the Stag field since 2013, and an important milestone for the company too.”The Stag oilfield was acquired by Jadestone through its wholly-owned subsidiary Jadestone Australia on November 11, 2016.The field was developed using a fixed leg, 12 slot manned central processing facility platform with a liquids production capacity of 50,000 bbl/d, of which 30,000 bbl/d is for oil. This is connected, by an eight inch underwater export pipeline, to a pipeline end manifold and floating storage and offloading vessel (FSO), via a catenary anchor leg mooring buoy. Shuttle tankers transfer the oil from the FSO to shore.It is worth reminding that the Ensco 107 drilling rig was used last year to drill the Dorado-1 well, which turned out to be one of largest oil discoveries ever on the Australian North West Shelf.
“It is not fun to obviously put a position player in that situation,’’ Boone said. “For Ford and some of the guys it is fun, but sitting in my chair, you worry about hurting someone, and sitting there getting kicked in the mouth is no fun. I am sure there is something to that question.’’ There is no mercy rule in MLB, but New York’s Aaron Boone thinks one being implemented might be a good thing.The Yankees manager shared his thoughts on the idea Friday when addressing the 19-5 loss his team suffered at the hands of the Indians on Thursday. “It’s not fun to have to put in a position player”Aaron Boone discusses a mercy rule and how it could prevent injuries/bad situations during blowouts pic.twitter.com/EB6woa1GbN— Yankees Videos (@snyyankees) August 16, 2019“I think there would be a benefit to that,’’ Boone said. “You would probably eliminate a lot of the unwritten rules, people running or swinging. It would be like, if you get to this point after seven innings or whatever, there might be something to that and worth exploring.’’Some of Boone’s frustration stems from the fact he had to use DH Mike Ford on the mound for two innings against Cleveland. He’d rather avoid position players pitching.
