Phase 1 on schedule Oil and gas major ExxonMobil has made an oil discovery on the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana at the Tripletail-1 well in the Turbot area. This is the 14th discovery on the Stabroek Block.Noble Tom Madden; Source: Noble CorporationThe discovery adds to the previously announced estimated recoverable resource of more than 6 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek Block, ExxonMobil said on Monday.According to the oil major, the Tripletail-1 encountered approximately 108 feet (33 meters) of a high-quality oil bearing sandstone reservoir.Tripletail-1, drilled in 6,572 feet (2,003 meters) of water, is located approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) northeast of the Longtail discovery. After completion of operations at Tripletail, the Noble Tom Madden drillship will next drill the Uaru-1 well, located approximately 6 miles (10 kilometers) east of the Liza field.“This discovery helps to further inform the development of the Turbot area,” said Mike Cousins, senior vice president of exploration and new ventures at ExxonMobil. The Liza Phase 1 development remains on schedule to start up by early 2020 and will produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day utilizing the Liza Destiny floating production storage and offloading (FPSO), which arrived in Guyana on August 29, 2019.ExxonMobil approved funding for the Liza Phase 2 development after it received government and regulatory approvals in May 2019. Expected to startup by mid-2022, the project plans to use the Liza Unity FPSO to produce up to 220,000 barrels of oil per day. Pending government approvals, a third development, Payara startup could be as early as 2023 and production would reach an estimated 220,000 barrels of oil per day.The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometers). ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is operator and holds 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration holds 30 percent interest and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, holds 25 percent interest.Hess Corp. CEO, John Hess, said: “Tripletail is the 14th discovery on the Stabroek Block and further underpins the Turbot area as a major development hub.”“The discovery adds to the previously announced gross discovered recoverable resource estimate of more than 6 billion barrels of oil equivalent on the Stabroek Block, with multi-billion barrels of future exploration potential remaining.”Spotted a typo?

Published on March 1, 2015 at 7:23 pm Contact Kevin: firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook Twitter Google+ After the end of her first set, Valeria Salazar lay on the bench with her injured legs propped up while eating an apple.She had just won the set, but not without struggling first.Fighting through injury, Salazar rallied from being down 4-1 in the first set to win her match by a score of 7-6 (7-4), 6-2. She, along with her No. 34 Syracuse (6-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) team, was gritty in its 5-2 victory against Pittsburgh (2-7, 0-4) on Sunday afternoon at Drumlins Tennis Center.Her match came after an 8-2 doubles win with partner senior Komal Safdar. It was one of the two doubles victories that earned the Orange the doubles point to start the match.It was a slow start in singles for Salazar, who quickly fell behind 3-0 as she played through pain. During the following side change, she sat visibly upset on the bench with her face buried in her towel.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’ve never retired before and I didn’t want this to be the first time,” Salazar said, “so I just kept finding a way to win.”Her play didn’t improve dramatically from there, and she was behind 4-1 at the next side change. It was at that point that she was visited by a trainer, who told her that she could stop playing if she desired.Salazar came from behind to tie the score at six, and her improved play didn’t stop there.In the tiebreaker, she continued to impress with a textbook drop-shot lob sequence, an aggressive shot from the baseline taken before the bounce, and a strong serve that won her the set.She continued this way in the second set, opening with an overhead winner before proceeding to win 6-2.“V is going through a lot of adversity right now,” head coach Younes Limam said, “and having her just managing her pain and emotions and everything was huge for us.”Salazar wasn’t the only SU player to earn a victory like this one on Sunday.Senior Amanda Rodgers wasn’t fighting through pain, but she seemed to be fighting against herself. Rodgers took the first set before losing the second. Her frustration showed clearly when she angrily hit the ball into the net after a missed shot.“I was very frustrated, just because we’ve had a long season so far and two days ago I didn’t get the clincher. And that’s always very mental,” Rodgers, a contributing writer for The Daily Orange, said. “And so I was just thinking, ‘OK, just regroup and don’t let this go by you.’”Despite being down 2-0 early in the third set, she followed up with strong serves that earned her a quick win in her next service game.From there, Rodgers got back in her groove. She evened up the match by breaking back and then broke again when she was winning 4-3, earning herself the opportunity to serve for the match.She capitalized, and despite a series of “Come on!” shouts throughout the match, her response after match point was quiet.It was a well-fought battle across the board for Syracuse, and it earned its first victory in ACC play as a result.“I just really wanted to win,” Salazar said with a laugh, “and I don’t like to lose.” Comments

Earlier today, the organization released a report, Giving Life, Risking Death: Maternal Mortality in Burkina Faso. The 126-page report examines maternal mortality in Burkina Faso as a violation of the right to health and life—and presents recommendations to the government, the international community and donors.“More than 2,000 women die in Burkina Faso every year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Some die because they cannot reach a suitable health facility or because their relatives cannot pay the fees demanded. Others die because of shortages – of blood, drugs, equipment or qualified medical staff. Maternal mortality takes its toll on the poorest and least educated women. Amnesty International calls for better information and services for family planning, for the removal of financial barriers to maternal health care and for improvements in access to care.”To learn more about this report, click here.The full report can be accessed here.For the fact sheet, click here.For information on the Amnesty International caravan campaign on maternal mortality in Burkina Faso (also launched today), click here.Share this:
