Tulip Oil brings online Q10 gas development in Dutch North Sea

first_imgDutch privately-held exploration and production operator Tulip Oil has started gas production from its Q10 offshore gas development in the Dutch North Sea.According to the company’s statement, the initial gas production from the well QA-01 started on Friday, February 15, 2019, to be processed at TAQA P15 platform before being sold to market.The production started just 12 months after taking the final investment decision (FID) on the project.Imad Mohsen, Chief Executive Officer stated: “Following one of the largest gas finds in the last decade in the Dutch North Sea, Tulip has demonstrated it can also successfully execute the largest natural gas project in Holland in 2018, with a perfect safety record, excellent quality while using best in class contractors that have delivered at unheard of cost and schedule.“Throughout the process we benefited from the support of our equity and bond investors as well as the full technical and financial backing of our JV partner, State-owned Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN).“We were aiming to be the benchmark to beat for finding and developing hydrocarbons in the future.”The development required the installation of a 42km pipeline by Allseas from the Q10A location to the P15d platform for export, which was installed just six months after the FID. The unmanned offshore platform was built by Heerema Fabrication Group and installed offshore in December 2018 using Deme Apollo vessel.In additional to the first discovery well Q10A-01, which has been put on production, up to four additional wells are being drilled by Borr rig, Prospector-1. Production will be ramped up slowly as these wells are put on stream.“Tulip has delivered as promised to our investors, bondholders and our joint venture partner Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN). Finishing ahead of schedule and on budget is a great achievement and Q10-A will be the cornerstone production and cash generator for the company’s future growth,” stated Martin Bell, Chief Finance Officer.The Q10 gas field was discovered in 2015 and lies 20km offshore the Netherlands in a shallow water environment. Tulip Oil owns a 60% interest in the Q07a/Q10 block and is the operator. Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN) holds the remaining interest.last_img read more

O’Driscoll: Bring on the World Cup

first_imgBrian O’Driscoll believes Ireland have the perfect platform to take the World Cup by storm after clinching the RBS 6 Nations title. Defeat to Wales in their previous outing meant the Grand Slam was not on, and Ireland had a nervous wait to discover whether England could overturn a 26-point differential in their late Twickenham clash with France. England fell narrowly short so Ireland were able to celebrate long into the night, and now thoughts turn to the World Cup campaign later in the year. “I think it sets us up really well,” O’Driscoll said. “You always look at positives in any loss – the defeat to Wales might be a blessing in disguise. “In Ireland we don’t do middle ground: we’re either top of the pile or bottom of the heap. “If we had won the Grand Slam, going into the World Cup, there would have been an absolutely insane amount of pressure on the boys. “That being said, we’ve won the Six Nations and there’s still going to be that pressure and that level of expectation. “But it’s been a little bit tempered by the fact we did lose last week, so hopefully it gives us an opportunity to slip in a fraction more under the radar. Press Association “We’re playing with a huge amount of confidence, we’ve got a very distinct understanding of what our strategy is and what our game plan is, and everyone’s singing off the same hymn sheet. “If we can be fortunate with not losing too many players to injury I don’t see why we can’t find ourselves in a semi-final – all bets are off when you get to that point.” O’Driscoll, speaking on BBC Radio Five Live’s Sportsweek programme, reflected on a “crazy, crazy” afternoon of rugby, while former England skipper Will Carling labelled it “the most amazing day of Six Nations or Five Nations rugby I’ve ever seen”. Carling is also optimistic that England, the hosts, can have a strong World Cup, following their 55-35 win over France. “Sport can be cruel and it can have the most incredible highs and lows. Sometimes it’s cruel but it’s always in your hands,” Carling said. “The England players made an incredible effort. You feel very sorry for them. “They gave it an incredible shot but just fell short. It’s something they have to learn from, that’s the key from an English point of view. “I think what England will learn is if they go out in every game with the intensity they showed in the second half against Wales (in the opening Six Nations match) they can beat everyone. “You’ve got to be able to do that week in and week out at a World Cup.” The former Ireland skipper was at the centre of the narrative 12 months ago as Joe Schmidt’s team carried off the trophy with victory over France in Paris. It was his final international match and meant that this year, as Ireland were clinching a successful defence, O’Driscoll was with friends and family watching on television as Ireland thrashed Scotland 40-10 at Murrayfield. last_img read more

Premier League Team of the Week

first_img Heurelho Gomes (Watford) – A man who has faced his share of criticism over the years, Gomes earned plaudits on Saturday having saved Glenn Murray’s penalty in his side’s 1-1 draw at Bournemouth, moments after executing anther five save to keep out an acrobatic Steve Cook effort. Tyias Browning (Everton) – Among several Toffees defenders to emerge with credit from the 1-1 draw against Liverpool, Browning in particular gets a mention as a rare local lad involved in Sunday’s game at Goodison Park. Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton) – Not a local, but a Merseyside derby debutant who excelled in what was only his second Premier League start for the club. Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) – Another fine showing from the Dutchman as his new team pulled off a 3-1 win at Chelsea. Continues to impress following his move from Celtic. Jeffrey Schlupp (Leicester) – Often an attacking threat whether being started at full-back or on the wing, and certainly was in the Foxes’ 2-1 win at Norwich having been selected in the more advanced position. Capped his performance with what proved to be the winning goal. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – Restored to the Palace first XI and a thorn in West Brom’s side as Albion succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at Selhurst Park. Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City) – Team-mate Sergio Aguero rightly grabbed the headlines with his quintet of goals in the 6-1 demolition of Newcastle, but De Bruyne – scorer of his team’s other effort – was also superb. The hefty fee City paid for him becomes more and more understandable with each performance at the moment. David Silva (Manchester City) – Another City man who, as is so often the case, was outstanding. Both his and De Bruyne’s creative skills were key to making Aguero’s goal glut happen. Victor Moses (West Ham) – Is producing some eye-catching form while on loan from Chelsea and did well to set up the Hammers’ first goal in their 2-2 draw at Sunderland. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – Followed up his hat-trick against Leicester last weekend with two delightful goals early in the 3-0 win over Manchester United. The Chile forward’s resurgence goes on. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – Quite simply the man of the weekend as he became the fifth player to score five goals in a Premier League game. Sensational. Team of the week (4-4-2): Gomes; Browning, Funes Mori, Van Dijk, Schlupp; Zaha, De Bruyne, Silva, Moses; Sanchez, Aguero. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Rio 2016 was an ‘iconic Games,’ says IOC’s Bach

first_imgBy Karolos GrohmannRIO DE JANEIRO,(Reuters)-The Rio de Janeiro Olympics, which come to an end today, were an iconic Games despite a long list of problems and a lack of cash, International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach said yesterday.A day before the closing ceremony of the first Olympics in South America, Bach said the performances of athletics combined with the purpose-built venues had made the Games a success and proved less affluent nations could host the Olympics.“These were and still are iconic Olympic Games in many respects,” Bach told reporters.“We have seen iconic athletes across all sports, seen athletes who were icons and even strengthened their positions like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt. And others who became icons here.“We all saw the level of competition over all sports was extremely high, with stunning performances from the athletes. This really is the spirit of the Games,” he said.Rio organisers struggled with transportation, security, empty stands and a shortage of funds as Brazil was gripped by its worst recession since the 1930s, with political turmoil further hampering preparations.Rio won the right to host the Games in 2009 amid a booming economy but due to a severe economic crisis over the past few years organizers had to get advance payments from the IOC while also asking for public funds to complete preparations.Bach defended the IOC’s choice of Rio saying it would have again chosen the Brazilian city because the Olympics were staged “in the middle of reality”.“I think this is a really iconic Games. It is also Games in the middle of reality. They were not organized in a bubble. They were organized in a city where there are social problems, social divides, where real life continued and I think it was very good for everybody.“To be close to reality and not to have it in a bubble for 16 days, the Games somehow being isolated. To be in the middle of it, to see reality and by seeing this to put sport into perspective.”Organisers, who had pledged Rio would be the safest city in the world during the Olympics, repeatedly had to apologize for incidents of crime involving athletes, media or visitors.Critics had said the Games were the last thing Brazil needed, with money better spent on social welfare projects instead.An ongoing political crisis with suspended President Dilma Rousseff facing an impeachment trial and interim President Michel Temer being deeply unpopular, only added to the Games’ problems.“The IOC has shown that it is possible to organise Olympic Games also in countries which are not at the top of the GDP (gross domestic product) ranking,” Bach said. “It has shown great solidarity and seen great solidarity.“We have shown that we are ready to face social reality and to address this.”last_img read more

Defending national champion North Carolina earned the second spot, and Notre Dame rounds out the top three.

Lewis Hamilton Limps Home to Take Seventh Silverstone Win

first_imgLewis Hamilton celebrates his seventh win at Silverstone The Brit, whose paternal grandparents are Grenadian, seemed to be cruising to victory when his front left tyre blew, and he was left with an agonising few seconds to make it to the chequered flag, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen closing quickly in second. “I think in the heat of the moment you have the adrenaline going and I guess that fight for survival instinct comes out,” he explained. Hamilton started the season with a fourth placed finish in the Austrian Grand Prix in the first week of July. “I was able to stay calm and really measured and try to bring the car home but of course, I’m just sitting here thinking of all the things that could have happened. If the tyre gave up in a high-speed corner or something it would have been a much different picture.” “Up until that last lap everything was relatively smooth sailing. The tyres felt great. Valtteri was really pushing incredibly hard. I was doing some management of that tyre; he looked like he wasn’t doing any. SILVERSTONE, England – Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton won his third straight race and a record seventh at Silverstone but was forced to drag his Mercedes across the line after picking up a puncture on the final lap, in a dramatic finish to an otherwise uneventful contest on Sunday. “When I heard that his tyre went I was just looking at mine and everything seemed fine and the car was turning no problem, so I was thinking “maybe it’s OK”. Anyways, those last few laps I started to back off and then just down the straight it just deflated.” “I’ve definitely never experienced anything like that on a last lap and my heart definitely probably nearly stopped. I think that’s probably how cool it was because my heart nearly stopped,” a relieved Hamilton said afterwards. He added: “I just noticed the shape just shift a little bit. And that was definitely a heart-in-the-mouth kind of feeling because I wasn’t quite sure if it had gone down until I hit the brakes and you could see that the tyre was falling off the rim. I nearly didn’t get it round the last two corners.” Hamilton, whose latest victory follows those in Spielberg and Hungaroring and puts him 30 points clear of Bottas at the top, said the dramatic turn of events required him to keep a calm head. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc finished third but Hamilton’s teammate, Valtteri Bottas, who raced in second throughout, also suffered a puncture with two laps left and dropped out of the points to 11th.
