Energean sells 5.5 BCM of Karish/Tanin gas to IPM

first_imgGreek oil and gas company Energean has signed a Gas Sales and Purchase Agreement with I.P.M. Beer Tuvia Ltd. (“IPM”) to supply an estimated 5.5 BCM of gas from its Karish and Tanin FPSO offshore Israel over a period of 19 years.The contract is subject to necessary approvals and is contingent on results of the 2019 drilling program, which includes the drilling of four wells in Israel and will start with the spud of Karish North in March 2019, targeting 36.8 BCM (1.3 Tcf) of gas with a volume-weighted geological chance of success of 69%.The agreement adds between 0.265 and 0.38 BCM/yr of gas sales, commencing in approximately 2024. Energean estimates that the deal will contribute revenues of roughly $0.9 billion over the life of the contract. Energean may supply IPM with limited volumes between 2021 and 2024.  IPM holds an option to increase volumes up to 0.55 BCM/yr.Energean has now signed GSPAs for 4.6 BCM/yr from its Karish and Tanin FPSO, which is being built with a total capacity of 8 BCM/yr. Energean targets filling the remaining 3.4 BCM/yr of FPSO spare capacity in the medium term, which it believes will deliver attractive incremental economics, the company said.IPM is an Independent Power Producer that will supply the national power grid and large private consumers with power. IPM is building a new power plant that is due to start operating in 2H 2020, and gas purchased from Energean will provide part of the total quantity of gas required for its operations. The remaining gas supply will be purchased in accordance with IPM’s existing Gas Agreements.The Karish and Tanin development remains on track for first gas in 1Q 2021, Energean said.Mathios Rigas, CEO of Energean Oil & Gas said:“This additional Gas Sales Agreement aligns with Energean’s strategy to secure offtake for the remaining spare capacity in our 8 BCM/yr FPSO and to commercialize the resource being targeted by our upcoming drilling programme, providing competition and energy security to the Israeli domestic market.“The signing of this contract ahead of results from our 2019 drilling programme demonstrates not only the attractiveness of the Karish and Tanin fields but the strong incremental demand that we have identified for our gas and we will continue to target additional sales. Our future sales contracts will target both the growing domestic and regional export markets, delivering attractive incremental economics for all of our stakeholders.”last_img read more

Coughing and sneezing? Things to consider before getting medicine

first_img: Medical personnel say it’s important to always follow directions when using cold medications, and only treat the symptoms you have. (Photo credit: M. Kuhlman)INDIANAPOLIS – Most adults will get one to three colds every year, and medical personnel say there are some things to keep in mind before heading to the drug store for treatment.Most over-the-counter medications can relieve the symptoms of a cold, but not always without risk.Joan Duwve, chief medical consultant with the Indiana State Department of Health, says it’s important to always take medication as needed and directed, and only try to treat the symptoms you have.“The risk of those all-in-one medications might be that you’re taking a decongestant but you’re not really stuffy,” she points out. “In fact, you would like your nose to stop running, and so you may need something that’s more like an antihistamine.”Duwve adds that acetaminophen overuse has potential for liver damage, decongestants can raise blood pressure and nighttime medications can cause drowsiness the next day.Her advice is to use medications minimally, drink plenty of fluids and get extra rest.She adds that warm liquids such as tea or chicken noodle soup are very effective in breaking up congestion.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), colds are the most common illness children experience.Duwve says parents should be vigilant about giving children medication for a cough, runny nose or sore throat.“As a parent, you don’t like to see your child looking or feeling uncomfortable and we like to feel like we’re doing something to help,” she says. “Kids, though, typically manage very well with cold symptoms and in fact medications can be harmful to children who are under the age of four.”She says always use children’s medications as directed, and try saline sprays for nasal congestion, and honey for a cough.Most colds run their course for about a week, and Duwve says parents should call their doctor if symptoms last more than 10 days or if a child has a fever higher than 100.4 degrees.Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

Charlton: Ferguson will not interfere

first_img Press Association Ferguson will remain at the club as a director and ambassador, as Sir Matt Busby did when he stepped down as United boss following a glittering 24-year spell in charge. Busby’s successors, Wilf McGuinness and Frank O’Farrell, both struggled while the former manager maintained a presence at the club – but Charlton insists Ferguson will not meddle. “Alex Ferguson doesn’t work like that. He won’t interfere,” said Charlton, one of the Busby Babes, who made 758 appearances for the club. “He is famed for his decision making and this will be just another decision.” Sir Bobby Charlton is sure that Sir Alex Ferguson will not meddle in the affairs of his successor when the Manchester United boss draws the curtain on his history-making 26-year spell in charge at the end of the season.center_img David Moyes has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to take the reins, while Jose Mourinho has also been touted as a potential successor. Having dominated the landscape of British football for so long, United fans will no doubt fear a decline, but Charlton is optimistic about the club’s future. “There’s no problem,” said Charlton at the launch for the Royal Mail’s Football Heroes Special Stamps. “Why should we not have anyone who we think is capable of doing it, and doing it with a bit of a smile? “There will be (another manager like him). But I can’t tell you who it is or who it may be. We have to get a new manager. It’s actually quite exciting. In a way I’ve always dreaded this day. There’s been a torment in my mind about this happening, but he’s not going away, he’ll be staying on as a director.” Charlton was one of the four men who appointed Ferguson way back in 1986 following the Scot’s success at Aberdeen, where he broke Rangers and Celtic’s monopoly of the Scottish game by winning three titles. He has since gone on to develop a close personal friendship with Ferguson. Ferguson discussed retirement with England’s record goal scorer on several occasions over the last few years. “I have known for about three or four years (that he was going to quit), but he has changed his mind a couple of times,” Charlton added. “City winning the title gave him a new challenge. Now I think he thinks he deserves to have a break. There’s so much pressure on the position. It’s very tough.” last_img read more

Players and explanations involved in Syracuse men’s basketball’s vacated wins revealed

first_img Published on November 4, 2016 at 3:19 pm Contact Paul: pmschwed@syr.edu | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+ Terrence Roberts, Billy Edelin, Dion Waiters, Fab Melo and Mookie Jones were the five players involved in violations that led to Syracuse vacating 101 wins. The Orange’s 2016-17 media guide identified those five players as having their individual statistics vacated by the NCAA.Roberts and Edelin were involved in the 60 wins that were vacated from 2004-07 due to receiving illegal payments. Waiters, Melo and Jones’ involvement in academic issues led to 41 wins vacated from 2010-12.The NCAA’s report on Syracuse was released on March 6, 2015 and included references to Jeff Cornish, a booster of the program involved in paying players. He paid three football and two men’s basketball players from a bank account titled “AAU-DCCT” a total of $8,335 and used the tax ID number of the Tri-Valley YMCA, where he worked, to do so, according to the report.From May 2004 to July 2005, Cornish deposited more than $300,000 into the account and paid SU players, athletics staffers and a basketball staffer’s rent for a month, according to the report.In 2010-11, Jones played in 13 games, which led to seven vacated wins that season. Waiters played in 34 games in 2011-12 while Melo played in 33 and Jones played in 12. SU vacated all 34 wins that season. According to the NCAA’s report, they received illegal assistance on academic work from people around the program, falling under the category of “impermissible academic benefits.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAbout three weeks ago, it was revealed how many games and in which years the 101 vacated wins came from. Now, it’s known which players were involved and why, based on the years these players played and how they’re described in the original report. The NCAA’s initial report, however, did not name the players specifically, while the team media guide does.The news aligns with what head coach Jim Boeheim said recently on the Doug Gottlieb Show, that none of the vacated wins involved drug violations.Updated yearly records following vacated wins:2004-05: 12-7 (15 vacated, 27-7 previously)2005-06: 0-12 (23 vacated, 23-12 previously)2006-07: 2-11 (22 vacated, 24-11 previously)2010-11: 20-8 (seven vacated, 27-8 previously)2011-12: 0-3 (34 vacated, 34-3 previously) Commentslast_img read more

Whicker: Just like old times, Dodgers’ opponents are stubbing their toes again

first_imgLOS ANGELES — At last a message in a bottle from 2017 has arrived at Vin Scully Avenue.Apparently it’s time for opposing ballclubs to start hemorrhaging at the sight of Dodger Baseball again.The up-and-coming Phillies, 29-21 as Memorial Day dawned, used the startling arm of Vince Velasquez and a three-run homer by Cesar Hernandez to build a 4-0 lead.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Then the Dodgers chased Velasquez and watched the Phillies dissolve, and they really didn’t need much heat of their own. A three-run eighth inning that featured two Phillies errors pushed the Dodgers over the top, 5-4, even though emergency starter Brock Stewart was less than stellar, and they had no idea what to do with Velasquez for five innings.As they kept telling us during their earlier stumblings, it’s a long season. And June doesn’t get here until Friday.“The bullpen, for me, was key,” Manager Dave Roberts said, as Yimi Garcia retired all six Phillies he faced. Garcia missed last year’s ride, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.“You don’t put in that work to play in the minors, you want to play in the majors,” Garcia said. “Of course it was exciting.”Velasquez came out of Garey High in Pomona, a 6-foot-3 right-hander who never needs to be recharged. In his second start for the Phillies in 2016, he struck out 16 Padres and gave up no walks in a shutout. That had happened only six times in major league history. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start It began when third baseman Maikel Franco decided against moving his feet to apprehend Puig’s hard grounder and played it into a base hit. Matt Kemp brought him home with a pinch-hit double. In came left-hander Adam Morgan, and the waters kept rising.A pop-up by Kiké Hernandez hung for what seemed like 90 seconds but still mystified second baseman Cesar Hernandez, who let it fall to earth. Then Max Muncy bounced a comebacker off Morgan’s glove, and Kemp scored the tying run.“They gave us some help,” Roberts acknowledged.Grandal’s base hit through a hugged-in Phillies infield completed the comeback, and now the Dodgers, who were being fitted for a termite tent a couple of weeks ago, have won nine of 11, and nine of 13 since Turner returned.He said he wasn’t a savior, but he’s got plenty of disciples.center_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season And Velasquez is also a symbol of how the Phillies, heads apart with Atlanta in the National League East, have revamped themselves. Essentially, the Phillies got him from Houston in exchange for closer Ken Giles. Just like they dealt Jonathan Papelbon to Washington and got Nick Pivetta, who has a 1.086 WHIP in 11 starts.Just like they dangled Cole Hamels in front of the Rangers until they got a veritable “Price Is Right” showcase that included rocket-armed catcher Jorge Alfaro, plus outfielder Nick Williams and pitchers Jared Eickhoff and Jake Thompson.Velasquez had Tommy John surgery before he got to the majors and was injured throughout last season. The most serious of those was a blood clot in his middle finger. But he also was struggling to harness that force. “I was running around last year like a chicken,” he said.Velasquez was asked to pitch more passionately by new manager Gabe Kapler. It’s been a mixed response so far. Velasquez came into Monday night with a 4-5 record a 4.18 ERA and also had surrendered nine home runs in 51-2/3 innings. But he had struck out a batter an inning and had given up 19 walks.His first five innings on Monday possibly were a sign of nine-inning nights to come. They definitely were unfair.Velasquez threw out Yasmani Grandal on a dribbler to his right, handling it like the high school shortstop he used to be. He struck out Chase Utley at 96 mph and Chris Taylor at 95, but then got Grandal on an 81 mph slider and made Justin Turner pop up at 83 mph.The Dodgers had no hits until Yasiel Puig’s solid single to left center, leading off the sixth.“He was throwing so hard,” Puig said. “I was looking for another fastball but I didn’t hit it that good. I think I left a couple of my fingers out there.”The curtain descended quickly.in the sixth. After Puig’s hit and Rhys Hoskins’ outfield error that got him to second, Joc Pederson socked a double that grazed the left-field line and broke up the shutout. The final batter was Turner, who knew this wasn’t a time to try a moonshot. Instead, he dumped Velasquez’s first-pitch slider into left field for a useful RBI single that cut it to 4-2.But even though the Phillies’ bullpen has the 11th-best WHIP in baseball, sometimes it’s like opening the door to a college freshman’s refrigerator.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire last_img read more
