Fourth largest oil field in the world The Upper Zakum oil field, located offshore Abu Dhabi, is the second largest offshore oil field and the fourth largest oil field in the world. Oil was first discovered in 1963 and ADNOC took the decision, at its own risk, to develop the field, in 1977. Subsequently, in 1978, JODCO, a wholly-owned Inpex subsidiary, partnered with ADNOC in developing the field, followed by Exxon, in 2006. In the same year, the Upper Zakum joint venture partners began studying options to increase production capacity from 500,000 barrels per day to 750,000 barrels per day, eventually pursuing the plan to use an innovative artificial island-based development combined with extended-reach drilling technology to increase recovery and minimize infrastructure.“This agreement represents a new milestone for Abu Dhabi’s oil production and demonstrates ExxonMobil’s long-term commitment and partnership with the UAE,” Woods said. “We look forward to continuing our successful efforts to increase production capacity from Upper Zakum. By leveraging the strengths of the Upper Zakum joint venture partners, we are able to maximize the value of available resources.”Kitamura said: “This outcome, in part, is a testament to the unwavering long-term partnership that Inpex has built and maintained with Abu Dhabi, as well as Inpex’s commitment to the development of the Upper Zakum oil field since 1978. I am confident this plan will contribute to the energy security of Japan and prove to be beneficial for all stakeholders for many years to come.”The megaproject involved the construction of four artificial islands in shallow water to create what is effectively an onshore environment in the offshore field. Unlike the initial Upper Zakum development, which comprises around 450 wells and more than 90 platforms, the islands provide a large enough footprint to accommodate drilling rigs and house drilling and production equipment and personnel centrally in offices and living quarters, at lower cost and with enhanced safety and comfort for workers. The ongoing costs associated with platform jacket maintenance and satellites are eliminated. The development will continue to use extended-reach drilling and completion technologies that have proven effective in increasing offshore production.Extended-reach drilling is about tapping into reservoirs from a distance, drilling first vertically, then drilling at high angle to access the reservoir target and finally drilling horizontally in the reservoir section to maximize reservoir access and recovery. Through extended-reach drilling, the man-made islands at Upper Zakum avoid the need for additional platforms with costly offshore operations, and instead enable cheaper land-based drilling operations. Extended-reach drilling adds further value to drilling operations by reducing the need for costly subsea equipment and pipelines.The development will also utilize reservoir characterization and modelling techniques, as well as modularly expanding existing infrastructure and facilities to maximize capital efficiency and lower costs. ADNOC and its partners have applied uncertainty modelling in the development of the Upper Zakum offshore oil fields, in challenging carbonate geological conditions, to prepare the ground for optimal value creation in the long term.In recent years, the Upper Zakum development has set several drilling records in the UAE, including the longest well at 35,800 feet measured depth. Extended-reach drilling Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), ExxonMobil, and Japan’s Inpex have made an agreement to increase production capacity from the Upper Zakum oil field to one million barrels per day by 2024.The agreement was announced on Tuesday on the side lines of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) and affirmed at a ceremony attended by Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Group, Darren W. Woods, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Exxon Mobil Corporation, and Toshiaki Kitamura, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inpex. Under the agreement, ExxonMobil and Inpex have been granted a ten-year extension for the concession, which was due to expire on December 31, 2041, until December 31, 2051.Dr. Al Jaber said: “ExxonMobil and Inpex, alongside our other partners, have played an important role in the development of our oil and gas assets. This agreement is another milestone in our efforts to forge partnerships that bring technology, expertise and capital aimed at delivering greater economic value and levels of recovery from our resources.“As we continue our transformation into a more commercially driven and performance led oil and gas company, we are focused on securing partnerships to allow us to unlock and maximize value and secure market access. In the upstream, we are adapting to the evolving market environment by driving down production costs and increasing our crude oil production capacity. We are also focusing on the application of value add and innovative technologies and are leveraging big data to drive efficiencies and optimize production.”
The new measure, which came into effecton Feb. 7, for border control checkpoints in Sitio Bacolod-Caticlan,Dumlog, and Union (Nabas)-Caticlan, and the Caticlan port for travellersof motorized pump boats from Romblon and roll-on roll-off vessels fromMindoro and Batangas as a precautionary move against COVID-19. “Titingnannatin ang lifting ng bordercheckpoints sa Feb. 15 or 16, mga 14 days mula Jan. 31 directive niPresident Rodrigo Duterte.

Acting town mayor Frolibar Bautista saidthe lifting, however, would entail stringent health screenings atthe Caticlan port for tourists entering Boracay. Last week, Bautista issued ExecutiveOrder (EO) No. 4, which temporarily bars the entry to Malay and Boracay Islandof any persons, regardless of nationality, who travelled to China andits special administrative regions for the past 14 days. The local task force also reported atleast 65 persons under monitoring in Boracay Island as of Feb.11. These are tourists who travelled to the country before the lockdown imposed bythe national government.

Dusty Baker has one of the best records as a big league manager. However, his history has been that he brings a team into contention but just can’t take them all the way. I haven’t heard much grumbling yet to change managers. If the Reds finish as low as third this year, you begin to wonder if Dusty has met his Waterloo in Cincinnati. It would be a shame, because for the most part, he has done a great job keeping the Reds among the elite in baseball He did the same in Chicago, and except for the infamous left field fan interference, he would have had the Cubs in the World Series. Last year at Cincinnati he had the 2-0 lead against the Giants and the team totally collapsed at home. The Giants went on to win the World Series. Even though Cincinnati management seems to be less impulsive than some other organizations, you wonder if Dusty can survive if the Reds do not make the World Series. No one seems to care, but the Reds have had a lot of injuries this year. They were picked to win big in the National League, and unless they get very hot the last six weeks, the wolves may start to howl. We will know in the next few weeks. If they win big and make the playoffs, the month of July will be forgotten quickly.
But the 26-year-old has indicated that he would like to stay with Leipzig for at least another year. He told Bundesliga.com: “Yeah, as I said, we’re a young team so it’s not always easy – especially when a lot of noise comes from outside, asking whether we’ll win the league, can we do it, all that. “So that adds a bit of pressure and perhaps one or two people think about it too much and it holds you back a bit.Advertisement “We’ve experienced that now, and we have to learn how to deal with it. And next year we want to go for it again, if possible.” “I was a striker in my early days or a No.10, so I wasn’t usually far away from the goal, and this season it started like that again. I was playing in a lot of offensive positions compared to the last couple of years. read also:Mourinho to spend £135m for Tottenham summer overhaul “I’ve just found my instinct again, the runs to make, finishing, long shots, the whole package for an attacking midfielder. “Now since the winter break, my role has been a bit deeper, playing as a defensive midfielder really, and so it’s harder to get forward.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on September 19, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: firstname.lastname@example.org | @chris_iseman Two wins this season have already matched Syracuse’s win total from a year ago, and all signs are pointing to an improved team. And if there’s anything pushing the Orange to surpass the limited success it had in 2010, it’s the realization for several players that this is their final chance to be part of a memorable season.Especially since the last couple of years have been anything but.‘I think the last couple years with Syracuse not being great, there’s a lot of guys who want to finish on a high,’ junior midfielder Ted Cribley said. ‘There’s a lot of juniors and seniors who feel that this is their last chance to do well.’ Still early in the season, there have been several highs mixed in with a few lows that unveiled the growing pains Syracuse (2-4, 0-0 Big East) is undergoing in its second year under head coach Ian McIntyre. While there are some upperclassmen looking to make their mark in their last chance at contending for a conference championship, the Orange’s identity is still a developing group of newcomers trying to exceed expectations. Whether they can do so over the long haul or not remains to be seen.With the start of the Big East schedule opening up at the end of the week, there is at least some hope that the Orange could be turning the page after two underwhelming years. In 2009 and 2010, SU went a total of just 5-25-5 overall.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow in McIntyre’s second year at the helm, with his system already set in place, there has been a shift from a rocky upheaval to a cohesive group.‘I think we’re a little closer than we were last year,’ junior midfielder Mark Brode said. ‘There’s more of like a bond between everyone on the team. And I think there’s more quality on our team, so it’s been more fun to play.’Despite some of the flaws that have emerged for the Orange in several games, including mental errors or its occasional stagnant offense, the players have kept a positive outlook. It’s been a show of more hope than anxiety, where the concern that SU will return to the doormat of the conference hasn’t revealed itself.Some of that confidence could involve an emergence of unlikely players that have been major contributors thus far. Freshman defender Skylar Thomas is tied with senior midfielder Nick Roydhouse for a team-leading two goals.Behind them are Louis Clark, Federico Agreda and Jordan Murrell, who each have one score apiece.None of those three players had scored in a Syracuse uniform before this season, but now they’ve all become offensive threats.‘I think we have some more attacking options this year,’ McIntyre said. ‘I think as this team evolves we can have some exciting players.’McIntyre has spoken several times about instilling a winning attitude in his players. Even after his team’s first win of the season against Canisius, McIntyre was already focused on making sure his players were used to that feeling of walking off the field victorious.‘There’s a way of learning to win games,’ McIntyre said. ‘And winning becomes a little bit of a habit, and hopefully we can start doing that.’Syracuse hasn’t reached that point yet, but it’s still not out of the realm of possibility. And even in the Orange’s losses, it didn’t go down without giving its opponents fits.That held true this past weekend when the Orange held No. 16 New Mexico scoreless until the 81st minute. Syracuse fought back and scored just more than one minute later to tie it up, but eventually lost five-plus minutes into overtime. The Orange couldn’t beat the Lobos, but it put up enough of a fight to show that further success is possible.There’s still a long way until determining whether or not Syracuse is a legitimate Big East contender.For now, though, the players can feel the program is taking a step in the right direction.‘We’ve still got a lot to work on, you can’t change a program around in two years from being very mediocre to a brilliant program,’ Cribley said. ‘But Mac’s taking the right direction. The right players are here. And you’ve got to go one step at a time, so hopefully this is one of those stepping stones.’email@example.com
Facebook Twitter Google+ EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — Eric Dungey laughed off the thought of a time when he’ll have to stop looking Amba Etta-Tawo’s way.“I hope not,” the quarterback said.Zaire Franklin interrupted and questioned the thought to himself. “Why would you? Dude’s a savage. Dude’s crazy,” he muttered while looking down at the box score printed out in front of him.What it showed was a record-shattering 12 catches for 270 yards and two touchdowns for Etta-Tawo. He set a new SU record for yards in a game — breaking one that had stood since 1985 — became the first Orange receiver to record at least 200 yards in a game twice and is the first Syracuse player to start a season with four straight 100-yard receiving games.Etta-Tawo was the backbone of the Syracuse (2-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) offense in a 31-24 win over Connecticut (2-2, 0-1 American Athletic) at Rentschler Field on Saturday. He finished with 58 percent of the team’s yards and was targeted on 18 of Dungey’s 40 throws.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We really think Amba can beat anyone out there,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said. “He is an exceptional player with a lot of God-given ability. … He has really taken off.”MORE COVERAGE:Will Amba Etta-Tawo lead the nation in receiving yards?Syracuse snaps two-game losing streak with 31-24 winSU community reacts to the Orange’s first road win since 2014Grade Syracuse and vote for player of the game Published on September 24, 2016 at 6:41 pm Contact Jon: firstname.lastname@example.org | @jmettus All-AAC cornerback Jamar Summers was supposed to be the player to stop Etta-Tawo. The Huskies left Summers on an island with the Syracuse graduate transfer, and SU took advantage.On the first drive, Summers bit on a fake handoff letting Etta-Tawo run by. Dungey’s throw was short, but Etta-Tawo slowed up, caught it along the left sideline and cut across the right behind a block by fellow receiver Ervin Philips for the 57-yard score.Three minutes later, Etta-Tawo smacked Summers’ hands away on a bump-and-run. There was no safety help (it was shaded toward Philips), so Etta-Tawo burned by Summers and Dungey dropped the 30-yard touchdown pass in.“It was a challenge I didn’t come prepared for,” Summers said.“Today was just my day,” Etta-Tawo said.Before five minutes had elapsed in the game Etta-Tawo already had five catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns.He was clearly Dungey’s first read on the majority of the passing plays. Dungey threw several jump balls Etta-Tawo’s way. More often than not, he came down with the catches.“Dungey and Amba, that’s a tag team,” Babers said.Tony D. Curtis | Staff PhotographerThe Huskies defense adjusted by playing Summers back off the line, surrendering the short-to-medium timing routes. Then linebackers and safeties started shading over to help in zone coverage.As Etta-Tawo’s numbers stalled in the second and third quarters, so did the Syracuse offense.But facing third-and-7 from its own 4-yard line with about five minutes left in a one-score game, Dungey went back to his favorite target. He heaved another pass high in the air that Etta-Tawo hauled in for a 59-yard gain. Summers dove and swiped for it and missed. The Orange went on to score the game-winning touchdown on the drive.“I’m sure that some defensive coordinator is going to say, ‘Hey that’s enough,’ and take him away,” Babers said, “and then it’s going to be time for somebody else to step up in that group.”But through four games, that hasn’t yet happened. The passes, statistics and records keep going Etta-Tawo’s way. Comments

He insisted that they “start fresh” as Kevin drops the 25 million dollar lawsuit against Shane. In return, Shane would reinstate Kevin into the roster and relieve him of the hundred thousand dollar fine he imposed on him. KO was not having any of it as he insisted that he would rather hurt Shane and make him pay rather than dropping the lawsuit.
