Triangle Energy finds new drilling prospects near Cliff Head platform

first_imgA possible southern extension with best estimate contingent resourcesof 0.54 mmstb was also identified but is contingent on further studies. Triangle managing director Rob Towner said: “It is pleasing that our work completed over the last 12 months or more has led us to a point where we have three clearly defined, attractive, drilling opportunities. The next steps for us are to commence the detailed well planning to execute these wells, within the constraints of the current oil price and industry down-turn. SE Nose is assessed to have best estimate contingent resources of 1.01 mmstb with the conversion to reserves dependent on a formal Cliff Head JV approval of a development well. According to the company, the total number of opportunities isactually five, with two of them being longer-term development prospects. Cliff Head platform; Source: Triangle Energy West High appraisal & development Of the three priority drilling targets, the Mentelle Updipprospect has the potential to materially impact the life-cycle of Cliff Head,while West High and SE Nose could also provide a significant uplift inproduction. SE Nose development Triangle said on Thursday that the drilling opportunities wereidentified during the now completed Cliff Head Renewal Project (CHRP). High-potential Mentelle Updip prospect Australia-based Triangle Energy has identified three key opportunities that could be drilled and developed from the existing Cliff Head Alpha platform offshore Western Australia. It is also worth noting that Triangle updated its assessment ofunrisked contingent resources and prospective resources for the Cliff HeadProject. Currently, the best estimate contingent resources stand at 3.52 mmstbgross, while best estimate prospective resources for total 9.46 mmstb gross. Best estimate prospective resources have been upgraded to 5.2 mmstb,from 3.3 mmstb previously. The chance of discovery for Mentelle Updip isassessed to be 38 per cent and a 34 per cent chance of a commercial discovery.center_img A best estimate contingent resource of 0.95 mmstb is assessed forWest High. The progression of West High contingent resources to reserves iscontingent on the drilling results of a West High appraisal well. These included a review of the mapping and reservoirinterpretation, reprocessing of the Cliff Head 3D seismic data, depthconversion studies, and dynamic modelling of the field and satellite opportunities. SE Nose is a low relief structure updip of the Cliff Head 1discovery well. The depth conversion studies also addressed the structuraluncertainty of SE Nose and confirmed the presence of a structure updip of CliffHead 1. The company also identified the longer-term Catts and Far North prospects. Catts, immediately north of SE Nose was identified by the depth conversion work with best estimate prospective resources assessed to be 0.77 mmstb with a 45 per cent chance of discovery – and a 35 per cent chance of a commercial discovery. Work on the prospect indicates that good quality Irwin River CoalMeasures sandstone reservoirs could be expected within the prospect andconfirmed the large structure as previously mapped. It could be drilled by a deviated appraisal well from Cliff Headplatform and Mentelle Updip then completed as a production well in the event ofsuccess. Triangle completed a detailed depth conversion review using thereprocessed Cliff Head 3D seismic data to reduce this key uncertainty with theopportunity. Far North is a possible structural culmination on the northernlimit of the field that is indicated by upside scenarios of the depthconversion work. It is in its early stages of evaluation with a best estimate(2C) contingent resource estimated to be 0.4 mmstb. As part of the Cliff Head Renewal Project, executed during thesecond half of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020, Triangle undertook a rangeof sub-surface studies to mature several previously identified opportunitieswhich are now contingent on an investment decision. “The work we have done for the Cliff Head Renewal Project gives us a clear picture of how the under-explored Perth Basin could be developed around existing infrastructure, extending the life of the Cliff Head project”. The Mentelle Updip prospect was reviewed with a focus on the reservoirinterpretation which had been a key uncertainty. The West High appraisal and development opportunity is a probableextension of the Cliff Head field to a western culmination.last_img read more

Palm Beach County Health District Set to Expand COVID-19 Testing Criteria at Drive-thru Site

first_imgThe changes at that site come as Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Saturday that he is also expanding requirements at three federal test sites in Miami Gardens, Orlando and Jacksonville.“We think that having folks who have had close repeated contact with someone who has tested positive, even if they’ve not developed any major symptoms, that giving them the opportunity to get tested makes sense,” DeSantis said.To schedule an appointment for testing, call the COVID-19 hotline at (561) 642-1000. The call center will be open Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to schedule appointments for Tuesday. The Palm Beach County Health District is preparing to expand its criteria to make it easier for people to get tested for the novel coronavirus.In a news release late last week, the district announced that people who are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms will be able to schedule an appointment beginning Monday, April 13, to get tested at the drive-thru site located at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches.There were 720 patients scheduled to get tested Saturday at the ballpark, an increase of about 200 from the daily average.In support of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ guidance to expand criteria for testing, callers to the #COVID19 Hotline, 561-642-1000, do not need to have experienced symptoms. Call center is taking calls until 5 p.m. today. #PBCGov— Palm Beach County (@pbcgov) April 10, 2020last_img read more

Cameron says regional PMs can initiate CWI restructuring

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) – Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron said Caribbean prime ministers had the power to restructure the regional governing body if they so desired, but it was not solely his responsibility to undertake reform of the organisation.Speaking on SportsMax here, Cameron argued that any governance restructuring needed to be initiated by the territorial boards which comprised CWI, and pointed out that the regional prime ministers pushing for reform could “instruct” the domestic associations accordingly.“The prime ministers believe that the structure needs to change – the structure is not Dave Cameron’s structure, the structure is West Indies cricket’s structure,” the often controversial CWI chief said ahead of this weekend’s elections here.“For the structure to change, all the territorial boards would have to say ‘this is what we want’ and these prime ministers are prime ministers of these countries. All they need to do is instruct their boards to change the structure accordingly. Why is that Dave Cameron’s problem?”Cameron has come under pressure from CARICOM in recent years to enact recommended CWI reforms, so as to ensure greater transparency and accountability in the organisation.Three prime ministers – Dr Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr Keith Mitchell of Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago’s Dr Keith Rowley – have been especially vocal in their criticisms of Cameron and the organisation.Mitchell, in his previous role as chairman of CARICOM’s subcommittee on cricket, has repeatedly questioned Cameron’s leadership and only last month said he did not think the Jamaican’s “attitude and mindset will take West Indies cricket forward”.Gonsalves, meanwhile, has in the past slammed Cameron’s management style as “extremely poor” and ahead of the 2015 CWI elections, urged territorial boards to tell the incumbent to “take a break and come back at a later date, perhaps with more mature, renewed skills of leadership”.Rowley, too, has been critical of the CWI leadership, saying West Indies cricket had been “hijacked by a small clique of people”.Cameron, who has been defending his record in the run-up to the elections, said contrary to popular belief, he enjoyed a very good relationship with CARICOM prime ministers and it was only “two or three” with whom he did not see eye to eye.“It is not CARICOM – and we keep saying CARICOM. There are two or three prime ministers who have a view,” he contended.“There are a number of other prime ministers who have a contrary view and if you know prime ministers, they are not going to come out publicly and fight against each other and Prime Minister Gonsalves and Mitchell are elder statesmen within the CARICOM setup.”He continued: “But we have excellent relationships with Prime Minister (Allen) Chastanet of St Lucia, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica; Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister (Gaston Browne) has written me a note publicly supporting what we are doing.“(We have) relationships with the Prime Minister of Barbados (Mia Mottley) … as a matter of fact I have a personal relationship with Gonsalves and Prime Minister Mitchell as well. So again, we have no personal issues.”Cameron is being challenged in Sunday’s CWI elections by former St Kitts and Nevis cabinet minister, Ricky Skerritt, while vice-president Emmanuel Nanthan is up against Dr Kishore Shallow.Cameron and Nanthan are bidding for a fourth successive term after being first elected in 2013 when they toppled former St Lucian diplomat Julian Hunte.last_img read more

Staying close: EMU head coach Murphy builds career around ties with players, coaches

first_imgTo Rob Murphy, college basketball is all about one thing: relationships.Relationships with coaches. Relationships through recruiting. Relationships with players. A conversation with the Eastern Michigan head coach always leads back to that one word. And that one word has made him the recruiter that he is, turned him into the coach that he is and is even the reason he’s still coaching in the college ranks.“I’m a people person,” Murphy said. “So no matter where I am I always build relationships.”Murphy has been forging these relationships since his childhood, and these relationships are an intricate part of his success with the Eagles (5-1).The EMU head coach was born in Detroit, where he began establishing these ties. Murphy went on to play four years at Central State (Ohio) University, a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics school, before returning to Detroit as a high school coach.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMurphy’s first stop in the college ranks was as an assistant coach at Kent State. After two seasons with the Golden Flashes, he arrived at Syracuse where he spent seven years as an assistant on Jim Boeheim’s staff and became one of the team’s top recruiters. His Michigan ties didn’t come into play quite as much, but he began forging even more connections.During those seven years, Murphy helped bring in C.J. Fair, Rakeem Christmas, Arinze Onuaku, Wes Johnson, Kris Joseph and Donte Greene among others.“As a recruiter he’s top-notch, man,” said Duane Davis, head coach of C.J. Fair’s AAU team the Baltimore Stars. “As a recruiter, he has a great feel for people, always respectful, always a gentleman.”For Murphy, they’re ties that he can use as a head coach.For Syracuse, it served as the foundation for some of the most successful seasons in program history.But Murphy deflects credit for his recruiting success to the Syracuse tradition.“When you’re selling Jim Boeheim it’s not a hard sell,” Murphy said. “It wasn’t really about me, it’s just about Jim Boeheim and Syracuse, and the history and the tradition there at that program kind of sells itself.”In his brief stint at Eastern Michigan, though, Murphy has proven it wasn’t all about Boeheim and the Orange — he has some recruiting and coaching chops of his own.In his first season with the Eagles, Murphy guided EMU to its first-ever Mid-Atlantic Conference West Division championship and was named MAC coach of the year.Da’Shonte Riley has personally seen all the different aspects of Murphy as a coach — the recruiter, the assistant and the head coach.Murphy was one of the primary recruiters trying to lure Riley to SU. When Murphy accepted his job at Eastern Michigan after coaching Riley for a year at Syracuse, Riley followed him partly because the university is just 45 minutes from his home, but also because of the relationship the two had forged.During the recruiting process, Riley immediately bonded with Murphy over their Detroit roots. In two years at Syracuse, that connection grew. Riley was considering transferring, and once Murphy had a program to take over, there was no hesitation on Riley’s part.“He has great vision about where he wants to take the basketball program and I decided I wanted to be a part of that,” Riley said.But relationships are more than just about the players he’s coached and recruited; they’re also about the men he’s worked for.When Murphy returns to Syracuse he still appreciates the environment, the fans and the prestige that made his time in Central New York special, but it’s his relationship with Boeheim that makes the returns most exciting.Murphy said his relationship with Boeheim has affected his personal life, but where it has most visibly affected him is in his coaching. Murphy employs many of the same coaching methods now with the Eagles that he watched Boeheim use firsthand with the Orange for so many years, most notably the 2-3 zone.“He’s had an impact on me in my overall life, how I approach many and several different things,” Murphy said. “Obviously he’s a Hall of Fame coach, and the system I learned at Syracuse the seven years I’ve brought it here and am implementing it in our program.”The zone is a staple of the EMU defense. And bringing a player along with him like Riley, who has experience playing in that zone, has made employing the defense easier.“He helped the guys who had never played zone,” Murphy said. “He helped bring them along.”This summer, Murphy had a chance to make another leap — this time to the NBA.On Aug. 14, reported that Murphy was leaving Eastern Michigan to take a job as a scout with the Orlando Magic, ready to throw out all his relationships in the college ranks for a job in the pros.Murphy said the Magic showed interest in bringing him on. But he said if he wanted to be in Orlando, that’s where he would be.His decision to stay at Eastern Michigan came down to relationships. As much as he loves coaching, it’s the relationships forged in the college game — all the way from the recruiting process through adulthood — that really appeal to Murphy.He’s started building his relationship with Eastern Michigan, but he still has a long way to go.Said Murphy: “I wanted to just continue to build the program and see what could happen here before I left — if I leave.” Comments Published on December 3, 2012 at 2:56 am Contact David: | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Secondary returns stronger and more experienced

first_imgJust around the corner · Sophomore cornerback Adoree’ Jackson had 49 tackles, 10 deflections and one forced fumble on defense in addition to his success as a wide receiver and kick returner in his breakout freshman season. – Daily Trojan File PhotoEntering the 2015 college football season, the Trojan football team’s secondary appears to be a source of strength for the defense. A much-maligned group last season, especially after losses to Arizona State and UCLA when defensive backs were repeatedly burned, the 2015 secondary looks revamped and reenergized. Led by standout corner Adoree’ Jackson and veteran defensive back Kevon Seymour, this year’s unit will be a tough test for quarterbacks in the pass-happy Pac-12.“This year, I believe the secondary will be a great strength for us, especially when you have someone like Adoree’ out there who can impact a game quickly,” head coach Steve Sarkisian said.Last season, the Trojans’ back four had to withstand the loss of All-Pac-12 cornerback Josh Shaw to suspension as well as All-American safety Su’a Cravens, who was moved to a hybrid linebacker and nickel back position. The loss of these stalwarts left the secondary in flux and susceptible early in the season.“We had growing pains in the secondary last year as we played a lot of youngsters who got better as the season went on,” Sarkisian said.Right away, though, Jackson emerged as a shutdown corner, which gave the unit a much-needed boost as the season progressed.This year, the script is flipped completely. Jackson comes in with one full year under his belt, and if recent practice is any indication, he will cut the field in half for opposing quarterbacks. On the other side is Seymour, a speedy veteran who has wowed coaches thus far in the summer sessions with his aggressiveness and physical play. Seymour, a local product out of Muir High School in Pasadena, has battled through injuries and inconsistent play throughout his tenure, but it looks as if he is finally putting it all together entering his final season as a Trojan.The two cornerbacks will be buoyed by a plethora of young, talented safeties. Leon McQuay III is back for his junior season, and though he had some issues against UCLA last season, his athleticism and physical presence will earn him some time on the field. He will be part of a platoon to start the season with sophomore John Plattenburg, who impressed late in the season last year and continued his strong debut into the spring and summer sessions. Additionally, redshirt sophomore Chris Hawkins, who recently converted from corner to safety, will also vie for playing time.The Trojans are both deep and young, as they have three highly touted freshmen who could play right away in the secondary. Prized recruit Iman Marshall is a physical defensive back who has already made waves with his play at cornerback. Additionally, the dynamic duo of freshman safeties Marvell Tell and Ykili Ross looks to be an imposing combination for the next few years.This depth is a source of pride for the Trojans, who have struggled with injuries in the secondary in years past.last_img read more

Crusaders sweep competition on Senior Night; improve to 14-7

first_imgWellington dominated the competition Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington girls volleyball team took care of business in its final regular season game at WHS gymnasium.The Crusader beat Clearwater 25-19, 25-19, and Winfield 25-13, 25-13 on senior night. Wellington is now 14-7.This may not be the last time Wellington will play in front of a home crowd. Wellington is currently up to host a sub-state. The Kansas State High School Activities Association has yet to post the sub-state locations or pairings, but the hope is Wellington will be at home. “That would be unbelievably awesome if that was to happen,” said Alison Widen, Wellington head volleyball coach. “We have a great home crowd. They definitely lift the spirit of our girls.”The student section was again in full force Tuesday night as Wellington beat two teams it has pretty much had its way with all season. Wellington was 2-0 with both Clearwater and Winfield coming in to Tuesday night.The girls dominated play with aggressive serving and kills keeping the opponents on their heals all evening. The only negative was they allowed the opponents to take an early lead in a couple of games.“We need to learn to put them away early,” Widen said. “But, overall, I have no complaints. The girls played well. I was happy.”Wellington has some work to do in the games ahead. The Crusaders will be battling this weekend in the South Haven Tournament at 8 a.m. Then the Crusaders will be at Rose Hill next Tuesday to battle Wichita Collegiate and Rose Hill. That will feature two teams, Wellington has yet to beat.Then on Oct. 14, Wellington travels to Circle to play the Thunderbirds in a rematch and Andale. Wellington has yet to see the No. 2 ranked Andale team in Class 4A Div. II.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Nothing is normal in 2020, and that includes the MLB Draft.This year, with the coronavirus destroying the sports landscape, the draft is going to be shortened to just five rounds, way down from the usual 40-round renditions we’ve seen in years past. This could result in lots of moving parts: high schoolers attending college, juniors in college staying for their senior years and a seemingly endless number of undrafted free agents potentially being signed. Originally, the MLB Draft was in for a major change: pushing the date back a week to allow college players to attend while shifting the event from MLB Network studios in Secaucus, N.J. to Omaha, Neb., the site of the College World Series. Unfortunately, those changes will have to wait a year, as the coronavirus is forcing the draft to happen virutally, a la the 2020 NFL Draft.Aside from those minor, minuscule changes, it’s business as usual for the 2020 MLB Draft.Below is all you need to know about the 2020 MLB Draft, including TV channels and start times for both days, plus the order of all 160 picks in the coronavirus-shortened draft.When is the MLB Draft in 2020?Dates: Wednesday, June 10 (Round 1) | Thursday, June 11 (Rounds 2-5)Start times: 7 p.m. ET (Wednesday) | 5 p.m. ET (Thursday)TV channels: ESPN, MLB NetworkLive stream: ESPN appMLB’s 2020 first-year player draft takes place June 10-11 starting with the entire first round and Competitive Balance Round A (selections 1-37) shown in prime time Wednesday.
