OGA Looks to Spark Interest in UKCS 30th Licencing Round

first_imgThe Oil and Gas Authority UK (OGA) has announced a suite of measures designed to make data openly available and stimulate interest in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) ahead of the 30th offshore licensing round.The 30th offshore licensing round will focus on the more mature areas of the UKCS – some of which were last offered for licensing more than 40 years ago – and is expected to be the most significant offshore round in recent decades.The measures announced today include:A series of freely available subsurface data packages for circa 140 relinquished discoveries, including well and seismic data (from Common Data Access), well tops (from OGA/BGS) and selected seismic images (from CGG, PGS and WesternGeco)Technical montages for 60 discoveries, including the discovery’s history, static and dynamic information and digital subsurface data to be used in interpretation softwareThe launch of a technology event in Aberdeen in August, jointly hosted with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC)An interactive map, showing undeveloped discoveriesAn interactive map, showing all licence relinquishments since 2014The technology showcase event will focus on how technology can help unlock these future oil and gas developments in the upcoming 30th offshore licensing round.The event will bring operators, prospective investors and technology developers together at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre the week starting August 21, 2017, and will cover technology areas that are critical for the economic development of marginal fields, including seismic, well construction, subsea tie-backs, and efficient standalone facility concepts. The agenda will include presentations by the OGA on acreage and opportunities available in the licensing round, by the OGTC on support available to technology development, and slots for technology providers to showcase proposed solutions.In addition, the OGA is also preparing a number of exploration focused data sets for public release. These will include the publication of UKCS-wide satellite gravity data, regional geological maps and associated databases covering the Central North Sea and Moray Firth, joined digital well logs and several geological databases including core analysis and pressure data.Gunther Newcombe, OGA operations director, said: “We know that more than 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) remain in approximately 350 undeveloped discoveries across the UKCS. Data and technology are key to unlocking as many of these undeveloped discoveries as possible. That’s why we’re making this data openly available; to provide useful insights into each discovery and the potential these may hold.“We want to see swift deployment of technology to help unlock many of these discoveries which is why we have also launched, in partnership with the OGTC, a technology event in August to bring operators and technology providers together with the 30th offshore licensing Rorund and beyond very much in mind.”last_img read more

Dyke plans met with criticism

first_img Dyke unveiled a raft of England Commission proposals at Wembley, aimed at boosting the number of English players at the top of club football. Also included were plans for special loan relationships between clubs, overhauling the work permit system and increasing the number of home-grown players in squads. Dyke said teams including Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City were enthusiastic about the proposal and believes club power can win the day even though the Premier League refused to be part of his England Commission. Dyke has set a target of increasing the number of English players in the Premier League from 32 per cent to 45 per cent by 2022 in his Commission report. Asked if he feared the leagues would block his proposals, he said: “I don’t think that will happen. Do I think every bit of this will happen no, do I think a lot of it will – yes. You have to distinguish sometimes between the leagues and the clubs. “Let’s remember – we invited the Premier League to sit on this and the Premier League chose not to. When I met them last week they said ‘why didn’t you consult us?’ and we said we did consult your members and secondly we wanted you on this, to be part of it. “You must look at the distinction between the league and the clubs, a lot of the clubs want this.” Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has found his plans for a new ‘League Three’ involving Premier League clubs’ B teams to be the object of derision. Press Association The most controversial however would be the introduction of Premier League B teams in a new ‘League Three’ from 2016/17. Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony reacted on Twitter, saying: “My thoughts on this B team scenario – It’s all about ME,ME & ME from the FA/Prem & to hell with the rest of you. Cant be allowed to happen (sic)! ”In this instance, its finally time for the 72 FL chairmen & most importantly our Chairman GC (Greg Clarke) to be strong to ensure this doesn’t happen.” Accrington Stanley stated sarcastically: “In 2016/17 we can achieve our dream… We’ll finally be able to play Stoke City Reserves in the Football League…” The Football League said there was no “acceptable solution” in the Commission’s report while England’s record goalscorer Gary Lineker described the B-team idea as “nonsense” and the Football Supporters’ Federation expressed outrage it was not consulted. A Football Conference statement said: “The English pyramid system is unique, having evolved over 100 years. “It has supported the growth of football into a league system that has become the envy of the world. It is important in these proposals to remember the heritage of the English game.” Dyke claims he has had backing from the top clubs for his plan to introduce B teams – even if the leagues do not like it. last_img read more

Allison Small stars in 1-0 loss to Penn State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 25, 2020 at 12:02 am Contact Will: After shutting out Roger Morris a week earlier, junior goalkeeper Allison Small once again found herself entering the third period with a clean slate. Both teams, in fact, entered the third period without goals. Without a goal from her Syracuse teammates, Small had to keep the puck out of the net for 20 more minutes to give the Orange a chance.However, Small couldn’t finish the game perfectly, and Syracuse (7-16-1, 6-4-1 College Hockey America) was on the receiving end of a bad bounce and was edged out by Penn State (10-9-6, 5-3-3) on Friday night, 1-0. The goal that lifted the Nittany Lions over the Orange was deflected by a wall of legs, and before Small could react Penn State senior Brooke Madsen finished it. “Sometimes you just get puck luck and sometimes you don’t,” Small said after her 21-save performance. “Tonight, you know, they got that bounce at the end, it’s just tough when those go and you want them to go your way but they go the other way.”For the past two weekends, Small has been the Orange’s most consistent asset, stopping 53 of 54 shots. Friday night, her performance was highlighted by multiple breakaway stops and odd-man rush saves. SU defender Jessica DiGirolamo said Small has been feeling more confident in net and noted how the goalie’s communication skills help the team quickly transition from defence to offense. Breakaways and odd-man rushes were a recurring feature of the game for both teams, especially in the later periods as players began to fatigue. The pace of play all game was fast and physical.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think that both teams are just trying to be aggressive,” DiGirolamo said. “And that’s when the D jump in on both sides. And that’s why it comes to these odd man rushes.”While Penn State struggled to score on Small, Syracuse had similar issues with Chantal Burke. The Nittany Lions’ junior goalie came into the match fourth in the nation in goals against average (1.50) and shutouts (5). Small was playing Burke shot-for-shot. For every impressive save Burke had against the Orange, Small would match it 200 feet away.Over the course of the season, Small has improved her goals against average with strong performances against conference teams. Halfway through November, after a 4-3 loss to St. Lawrence, Small’s GAA was 4.02. Her record was 0-8-0. Since that game, Small has gone 3-2-1 – including two shutout wins over Lindenwood and Robert Morris — to improve her GAA to 2.67. Small’s save percentage has also improved in that same period, going from .877 to .906.“She played well,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “I didn’t see where they had sustained pressure on us a lot, but she didn’t have to make a ton of saves five on three. It wasn’t anything where they really were all over us at times, but when we needed her she made some good saves.”In addition to Small’s strong play on the goal-line,  Syracuse’s defense stepped in front of six Penn State shots and had a dozen stick checks that nullified a Penn State attack before it could begin. The success of these defensive play will play a major role in deciding who wins the Saturday rematch.“I definitely have to give a lot of credit to my teammates,” Small said. “You know, they put a lot of confidence in me, it helps me play better. Overall, it’s just been a great team game and we’re all playing strong and for them to play well, it’s making me play better.” Commentslast_img read more

‘On fire’ Northern Irishman Grigg saves bookies millions

first_img UK bookmakers are breathing a huge sigh of relief, after Manchester City crashed out of the FA Cup at League One Wigan Athletic courtesy of Will Grigg, saving up to £25m in the process.The Northern Irishman struck as the tie approached the final ten minutes, putting to bed any hopes Pep Guardiola’s side had of securing an unprecedented and historic quadruple.Betway has estimated that factoring in the cost of City losing the game, their chance of winning a sixth FA Cup and all bets placed on City landing the four major trophies, a saving of approximately £1m has been made by themselves alone.That is despite a handful of lucky punters scooping four and five figure sums, after backing the Latics at 16/1 to defeat the Etihad based side once again.Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Man City had been well-backed for the quadruple since October, with some punters on at as big as 700/1 all the way down to 14/1. In late February, with still no sign of the sky blue train stopping, we were staring down the barrel of a heavy six-figure pay-out on the quadruple so last night’s result came as a great relief.“As you’d expect, we took plenty of lumpy bets on City to overcome Wigan last night, and they were also very well-backed to win the FA Cup itself. Overall, we’ve been saved a loss in the region of £1 million, and many other firms will be feeling the same.“The magic of the FA Cup has sprinkled a bit of stardust on the bookmaking industry, that’s for sure. I think it’s safe to say that the bookies have saved somewhere between £10m-£25m thanks to Will Grigg and Wigan Athletic.”Betway now makes City’s rivals Manchester United the 9/4 favourites for the trophy, shortly ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at 11/4 and 4/1 respectively, with Sergio Aguero and co 9/2 to go on and end the season with the treble.
