Australian oil and gas explorer Norwest Energy has approved a joint venture resolution to drill the exploration well EP368 at Lockyer Deep, in the first half of 2020.The well EP368 is located approximately 15km east of the Waitsia gasfield and directly matches with the recent West Erregulla-2 gas discovery trend, which has 2C contingent 1.19Tcf gas resources.Norwest Energy managing director Iain Smith said: “In 2020 Norwest Energy will participate in a well that has the potential to be truly transformational for the Company. Recent exploration success within the Kingia/High Cliff play has resulted in a quantum shift in the way the industry views the bas in and we are fortunate to be perfectly placed within the play’s sweet spot.“With a 100% success rate for the three wells that have targeted this play in recent times, we hope to build on that success to make it four from four.”Norwest Energy is currently re-evaluating the GCoS for the Lockyer Deep locationThe location of Lockyer Deep-1 is likely to provide high Geological Chance of Success (GCoS) for testing of the Permian Kingia/High Cliff conventional gas play within the combined Lockyer-North Erregulla Deep greater structure.In addition, the company estimates the prospective resources of up to 1.12Tcf for the structure.Norwest Energy’s current estimate of GCoS for the location is 29%.Based on the analogous structural setting, Beach Energy’s recent Beharra Springs Deep discovery is believed to further alleviate the geological risk at Lockyer-North Erregulla Deep.Norwest Energy said that it is currently re-evaluating the GCoS for the Lockyer Deep location and will announce the revised estimate during December 2019.Norwest Energy claims that it is fully funded to participate in the Lockyer Deep-1 exploration well at its 20% working interest. Energy Resources, a division of Mineral Resources, is the operator with a stake of 80%.last_img read more

first_imgThe Montreal Canadiens celebrated the franchise’s 110th anniversary on Tuesday sparing no expense.Prior to the team’s game against the New York Islanders, each player donned warmup jerseys honoring one of the team’s many legends (goaltender Carey Price wore Jacques Plante’s sweater, for example) and the franchise even invited a few of those legends to join in the festivities as well. MORE: Vancouver Canucks’ Alex Burrows thanks Henrik, Daniel Sedin in Ring of Honour speechEleven of the team’s former captains took the ice in the bleu, blanc et rouge for a pregame ceremony that celebrated the franchise — which is older than the NHL itself — and its outstanding success.

I don’t think you can create the intensity anywhere else.”In addition to Koivu, former Montreal captains Yvan Cournoyer, Serge Savard, Bob Gainey, Chris Chelios, Guy Carbonneau, Kirk Muller, Mike Keane, Pierre Turgeon, Vincent Damphousse and Brian Gionta were present for the ceremony. Henri Richard, who captained the team from 1971-75 and Max Pacioretty (captain from 2015-18) — who currently plays for the Vegas Golden Knights — were similarly celebrated but could not attend the ceremony.The Canadiens were founded on Dec. 4, 1909 as part of the National Hockey Association — eight years before the NHL was born.Snapping an eight-game losing streak, the Habs defeated the New York Islanders 4-2 on Tuesday.last_img read more

Nisqually Land Trust Hosts Historical Nature Walk

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Nisqually Land TrustThe Nisqually Land Trust is hosting a Nature Walk at its historic Van Eaton Property, along the Mashel River near Eatonville on Saturday, July 13th, from 1 – 3 p.m.The one-mile, moderate walk will be led by Land Trust staff through scenic Douglas fir forest to the former Van Eaton homestead on the banks of the Mashel, now the site of important salmon-recovery efforts led by the Land Trust and the Nisqually Indian Tribe.The Mashel is the largest salmon-producing tributary to the Nisqually River and was once one of the major steelhead-trout rivers in the Pacific Northwest. Even today, longtime Eatonville residents talk of steelhead runs so dense “you couldn’t see the river bottom.”But runs of both steelhead and Chinook salmon have declined dramatically over the past forty years, and both are now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Participants will learn more about restoration of the Mashel and the importance of the Van Eaton property for the future of our threatened salmon.Space is limited and registration is free but required. Contact the Nisqually Land Trust at 360-489-3400 or [email protected] for more information and to register.last_img read more

first_imgThere was a tinge of disappointment in the voice of the There was a tinge of disappointment in the voice of the former Rajasthan Royals player as Fazal was not picked by any franchise for this IPL season. “Obviously, it was disappointing but then I am now used to it. I knew that I had to keep working hard and thats why when I got a chance to play club cricket, I grabbed the opportunity. It keeps me match-fit. For someone like me, call it my mantra or USP, it has only been hard work. When I have worked hard at nets, I have felt relaxed out there in the middle,” said the Vidarbha captain, who scored 559 runs in the Ranji Trophy this season. India wont be playing any more limited overs fixtures in next one year and it may mean that Fazal, if he gets a chance and does well, might get confined to the fringes once again. However, when someone is 30 and had nearly given up hopes of playing for India, every day in the dressing room is a thing of joy. “I dont want to think on those lines. I would like to give my best and learn a few things from Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Which cricketer in India does not want to play under someone like Dhoni,” concluded Fazal.

Wheeler Hurls Mats Past Nats

first_imgWASHINGTON — Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler was working in and out of trouble in the early going against the Washington Nationals, walking four batters and allowing a run on a wild pitch.So he asked catcher Travis d’Arnaud and pitching coach Dan Warthen a simple question: “Do you all see anything?” Warthen went into the clubhouse to check some video from the Aug. 5 game and noticed Wheeler was “collapsing” instead of “throwing downhill,” as the right-hander put it.Thanks to that mid-game adjustment to his delivery — and Washington’s own miscues, including one runner hit by a batted ball and another thrown out at the plate — Wheeler pitched 6 2-3 innings to win his fourth consecutive decision, helping the Mets beat the NL East-leading Nationals 6-1.“I didn’t have my best stuff. And it wasn’t very fun. But you’ve got to find a way through it,” said Wheeler (7-8), who contributed a broken-bat RBI single at the plate.“You’re mad at yourself, and you’re trying to figure out what it is. I wouldn’t say it’s mentally draining, but it’s just frustrating.”Relying on a fastball consistently in the high 90s mph because his curveball wasn’t working, Wheeler was good enough on a muggy night when the temperature was 85 degrees at first pitch.The righty went 3-8 with a 4.45 ERA in his first 16 starts, but is 4-0 with a 1.59 ERA in seven appearances since June 30.“This kid has really, really gotten better,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said. “I mean, as he continues to improve, the sky’s the limit.”Said Washington’s Jayson Werth: “That was the best I’ve seen him. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen him, but his velocity was a lot higher than I remember.”Werth led off the sixth with a double. When Adam LaRoche followed with a single to left, third base coach Bob Henley sent Werth home.Left fielder Eric Campbell threw out Werth with a one-hop toss; the call stood after a replay review to check whether d’Arnaud blocked the plate.“It changed the whole game right there,” said Daniel Murphy, who pushed New York’s lead to 4-1 with a two-run single in the seventh off Drew Storen.Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez (6-8) was charged with four runs and six hits over six-plus innings. He put two runners on to begin the seventh, then shook his head as he walked off the mound when manager Matt Williams yanked him with Wheeler coming to the plate.Asked if he was upset that he was removed there, Gonzalez replied: “I wanted to face the pitcher, yes.”(HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
