Melbana exits non-core Vulcan Sub-basin offshore blocks (Australia)

first_imgAustralia’s Melbana Energy has exited two non-core offshore permits in North-West Australia’s Vulcan Sub-basin.The company will transfer its 55 percent interest in AC/P50 and AC/P51 permits to Rouge Rock which currently owns a 45 percent stake in the permits.By doing so, Melbana will avoid having exposure to future costs at the offshore blocks, as the forward work program for the current permit year includes geological and geophysical studies including interpretation and mapping of reprocessed inversion seismic data with an estimated aggregate cost of A$500,000. Also, the next permit year starting  May 19, 2019 includes an exploration well in each permit.Melbana said the divestment would allow it to further concentrate its resources on its high impact Cuban and Australian assets ahead of an expected significant increase in activity levels.While exiting the blocks, Melbana will hoping that Rouge Rock can monetize the assets, as the deal is structured such that if Rouge Rock enters into an arrangement in future for cash, Melbana earns 10% of the cash benefit received by Rouge Rock.If Rouge Rock enters into an arrangement in future that provides for a full or partial carry on a well, Melbana has the right to back-in for a 5% interest after the well is drilled, effectively providing a carried interest during the drilling process and avoiding costs associated with the drilling process.Melbana Energy’s CEO, Robert Zammit, said: “While we consider the AC permits to be prospective, we believe it’s in the interest of our shareholders that we focus our financial and human resources on leveraging our strategic position in the Cuban energy sector and our high impact Beehive Australian acreage. I am pleased that we have been able to maintain exposure to the upside in the event of a successful farmout or cash sale of the Permits by Rouge Rock.”last_img read more

TerraSond Wraps Up Surveys at Mayflower Wind

first_imgTerraSond has completed a geophysical survey at the Mayflower Wind offshore wind project in Massachusetts, U.S.In the two-month campaign, the Acteon company surveyed the site located 20 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard that is said to have a capacity to support up to 1,600MW of offshore wind.TerraSond said it acquired high-resolution geophysical data using a suite of equipment in water depths from 35 to 65m, with the New Bedford port supporting the work.A Geosea DP2 multipurpose support vessel was used for deploying a sub-bottom profiler, medium-penetration seismic system, side-scan sonar, multibeam echosounder, magnetometer and passive acoustic monitoring sensor.The acquired data is now being processed for delivery in November, according to the company.“As always, we put safety and the environment first. The environmental monitoring plan, which included protected species observers and passive acoustic monitoring operators, resulted in no environmental impacts or harm to marine life, successfully meeting Mayflower Wind’s safety ambitions,” said Pedro Regino, TerraSond Project Manager.To remind, Mayflower Wind, a joint venture of Shell New Energies and EDPR Offshore North America, submitted three 800MW proposals, as well as a 400MW proposal, in Massachusetts’ latest Request for Proposals (RFP) round for offshore wind.last_img read more

Pakistan’s first home Test in a decade a joyous occasion – Azhar

first_img(REUTERS) – Pakistan’s first Test match on home soil since 2009, which starts against Sri Lanka today, is a moment to rejoice for the whole country, Pakistan captain Azhar Ali said on Tuesday.Pakistan host Sri Lanka in a two-match series, their first tests on home soil since the 2009 militant attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus in Lahore which left six security personnel and two civilians dead and six players injured.Other teams refused to travel to Pakistan due to security concerns and the side were forced to play home tests at neutral venues in the United Arab Emirates. “It’s a moment to rejoice, not only for the players but the whole Pakistan nation,” Azhar told reporters. “Test cricket’s return to Pakistan after 10 years is an opportunity for us to get back on the winning track. “We had a tough series in Australia and the way we lost there was disappointing. Moving forward, we see this home series as an opportunity and advantage to turn things around. “We will try our best to fix our mistakes and improve wherever we had been lacking. We have outstanding talent in our squad. They have potential and, if we implement it, results will be good.”The matches are part of the World Test Championship in which Pakistan are yet to get off the mark after two innings defeats in Australia. Sri Lanka are fourth with 60 points from two matches. Sri Lanka are coached by Mickey Arthur, who led Pakistan for three years before taking up his role with Sri Lanka last week.“If someone is with you for so long, he does have a lot of information about you,” Azhar said. “In cricket these days, we all have a lot of knowledge about each other’s strengths and weaknesses, but yet players score runs.“Mickey does have a lot of insight about us, but we believe that whatever the challenge he will throw at us, we will counter.”last_img read more

Anybody that is found culpable with regards to the maintenance of the facility should is to face stiff sanction.The minister also ordered that similar rehabilitation work should be commenced on the children’s section of the pool to avail kids opportunities to learn and train.“The children pool should also be completed for children to learn and train in swimming.

We can safely say the swimming pool has been completed. All that is left is just final touches for us to commission the project for Nigerians to begin to use it.
