BP Sells Some North Slope Assets To Hilcorp

first_imgBP announced Tuesday it’s selling some of its assets on the North Slope. The company will sell to aging oil fields – Endicott and Northstar – to Hilcorp, a company that is developing oil and gas wells in Cook Inlet. Hilcorp will also buy a 50 percent interest in two other fields- Milne Point and Liberty.Download AudioDawn Patience is a spokesperson for BP Alaska. She says the sale is an opportunity for Alaska to bring new partners to the North Slope.“This is part of BP’s corporate wide view that we are good at managing and operating giant oilfields like Prudhoe Bay and we have a lot of interest in gas value change such as the Alaska LNG project,” Patience said.Patience says BP is committed to increasing production under Governor Parnell’s oil tax reform, including adding two new rigs at Prudhoe Bay by 2016.Hilcorp came to Alaska in 2012, and now operates 18 oil fields in Cook Inlet, after acquiring leases from Chevron and Marathon Oil. Lori Nelson manages external affairs for the company in Alaska. She says Hilcorp wasn’t necessarily looking to enter the North Slope.“The acquisitions that we made in Cook Inlet were kind of a full plate,” Nelson said. “But when opportunities like this come around, it’s not our timing, it’s the sellers and we were certainly open to that opportunity and here we go again.”Nelson says the company plans to extend offers to the vast majority of the 250 BP employees associated with the oil fields Hilcorp is buying.She says the North Slope is a completely different operating area than Cook Inlet, with a separate tax structure. But she says the company is excited by the opportunity.“Long range we’re aiming to reduce operating costs and extend the field life,” Nelson said. “We certainly intend to increase capital investments in hopes of developing additional oil reserves from the Slope.”Nelson says venturing on to the North Slope won’t detract from Hilcorp’s assets in Cook Inlet. Both BP and Hilcorp are hoping to close the deal by the end of the year, pending regulatory approval.BP also announced today it will submit a new development plan for the Liberty field, which Hilcorp will own 50 percent of, by the end of 2014. The company suspended work on the offshore project two years ago because of financial and other concerns. The development is on a man-made gravel island four miles off Alaska’s shore.last_img read more

Full Show Municipal IDs Under SB 4 And State vs Local Government

first_img Share On Tuesday’s edition of Houston Matters: El Paso’s City Council has voted against creating a municipal ID card program. Why? The city’s mayor — who voted against it — says he didn’t want El Paso to be perceived as a sanctuary city. Municipal IDs are local ID cards issued by cities that could be used by a range of people, including those who are in this country illegally.With the El Paso decision in mind — and with the state’s so-called “sanctuary cities” bill (SB 4) set to go into effect Sept. 1 — what’s the future of municipal ID programs in Houston and across Texas under the new law? We talk with University of Houston political scientist Jeronimo Cortina about why these programs are so controversial.Also this hour: Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick recently said “people are happy with their governments at their state level, they’re not with the city.” However, a 2016 poll from Gallup suggests the opposite. So what’s really the case? Are people in Houston more likely to get behind City Hall or the Capitol Building? We discuss that and the history of interaction between state and local governments with Mark Jones of Rice University.Plus: We talk with Dena Marks, associate director of the Anti-Defamation League in Houston about hate crimes in the area and how events over the past year might have an effect on their occurrence. And a Texas prisoner responds to a theory that he is a serial killer. We offer a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.last_img read more

State to compensate families of postpoll violence victims

first_imgKolkata: The state government will give compensation to the next of kin of those who died in post-poll violence, including two BJP supporters, announced Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday.While addressing the gathering in Hare School ground in connection to the reinstallation of the statue of Vidyasagar which was vandalised at Vidyasagar College, she said: “It is most unfortunate that 10 people have died in post poll-violence, of which 8 are Trinamool Congress supporters while 2 belong to BJP. I do not support violence.” Banerjee instructed Chief Secretary Malay De to take necessary action in this connection. However, the amount of compensation that would be paid has not been announced yet.

Later, two other persons had been killed. “The police are conducting an inquiry and the report is awaited.” Banerjee said eight supporters of Trinamool Congress have been killed in incidents of post-poll violence. “Even on Tuesday, a Trinamool supporter has been killed in Galsi. What is going on?” she said. Banerjee refuted the statement of Governor K N Tripathi that 12 persons have been killed in post-poll violence. “I respect the Governor but the figure he has quoted is not true.” The Governor met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Union Home minister Amit Shah on Monday in Delhi and submitted a report to Shah.last_img read more

MH370 causes PR problem for Malaysia

first_imgIn addition, a Bank of America-Merrill Lynch study found that 12 per cent of Malaysia’s tourists were from China and that the treatment of Chinese families by the Malaysian government could affect tourist flows to the country. China has taken issue with Malaysia’s off the cuff conclusion that MH370 definitely crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, even demanding evidence that of such a crash. New footage showing families being separated from public protest has become a public relations problem for Malaysia as well as make the government look cruel. A recent poll by accommodation search website Trivago, found that of the 500,000 Australians that visit Malaysia each year, many are reconsidering visiting again and some who planned it have cancelled their trips. Malaysia’s reputation as a tourist hotspot has taken a beating from the Malaysian government’s ham fisted approach to managing the search and releasing timely information, News reported.center_img The events sector in Malaysia is also suffering due to the debacle, with only 50 tickets sold to the Malaysian F1 Concert, despite selling 1000 tickets last year.   Source = ETB News: Tom Neale Tourism to Malaysia is likely to be affected in many ways because of the MH370 debacle.last_img read more

Good offensive football provides a team with hope

first_imgGood offensive football provides a team with hope. Bad offensive football breeds despair, and despair is not conducive to fighting off 330-pound butt-guts. Acceptable, as a football player? Never. Understandable, as a human being? Yes. Thank you, Mr. Pope. – / 50 Comments   Share   And this was the undoing of the Arizona Cardinals. Their rush defense, something that had been their strength all season, suddenly collapsed in December. The Seattle Seahawks won the #1 seed in the NFC and the division by rushing for 267 yards; the San Francisco 49ers followed that game by running over the Cards for 206 yards; and the Carolina Panthers rushed for 188 yards in their Wild Card victory over Big Red. I believed coming into this season that the Cards rush defense was a fulcrum to the entire season. I believed if the Cards could remain a top-10 rush defense, they would be a better defense despite losing Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington — because of the addition of Antonio Cromartie. They were a better defense this year but…not in December…and not on Saturday in Charlotte. And the carnage was evident.The question is why? This is something I’m having a hard time determining.It’s not like the rash of injuries they had suffered early in the season were perpetuated. The Cards actually started to get healthier on defense heading into December. Matt Shaughnessy — Grand Master, Guru of the edge and setting the edge — came back, Honey Badger was back (with a cast), and it seemed like things were only going to get better on defense. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Hope is a powerful emotion. Many incredible things have been accomplished and endured simply because a human being had the unmitigated temerity to hope. But, unfortunately, hope is not something you choose to do consciously; hope lives in the soul because “hope springs eternal,” does it not? Hope springs eternal in the human breast; Man never is, but always to be blessed: The soul, uneasy and confined from home, Rests and expatiates in a life to come. – Alexander PopeAlexander Pope may have the answer as to why the Cards defense suddenly stumbled down the stretch. The subconscious is where the Cards may have lost hope and, by so doing, doomed their season. Tyrann Mathieu said the defense relaxed, lost their edge and suffered because of it. Lorenzo Alexander concurred and said if you watched the film you would say, “he’s right.” Although this is completely unacceptable, the fact remains: you can’t tell a human being how to feel about something; they either feel a certain way about something or not. And having difficulty at the quarterback position severely limited the Cards offense, which in turn made it very difficult to score points and not being able to score points fills a football team with despair.

So I said, ‘Boys, we’re going to get in front of the TV and we’re going to cheer, and if they win it or lose it, we’re going to remember it.’”Nova Scotia-raised actor James Tupper watched Thursday’s Game 1 of the Finals at a restaurant near his hotel while in Toronto promoting season 2 of “Big Little Lies,” premiering June 9 on HBO Canada and Crave.“This whole season my dad has been calling me, ‘Jimmy, are you watching the Raps?’ It’s been all year,” he says. “So for them to do this is so exciting and for me to be here, it was unbelievable.”The Raptors ended up winning Game 1 and Tupper felt they “really dominated.”“I think we have a good chance,” he said. “We outplayed them and we played strong.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Gerry Dee arrives on the red carpet at the Canadian Screen Awards in Toronto on March 11, 2018. “This is trumping everything, how exciting it is in Toronto right now,” said actor and comedian Gerry Dee, the Toronto-based host of the upcoming CBC game show “Family Feud Canada.” Dee was at last Saturday night’s decisive sixth game of the Eastern Conference final, in which the Raptors beat the visiting Milwaukee Bucks and clinched their first-ever Finals spot. “It was unbelievable,” he said, noting he was amongst the thousands of fans celebrating afterward on the street outside Scotiabank Arena.

84% are men) NAM and NAE referred questions about how those two bodies will proceed to NAS which said it is too early to know The effort comes as US universities scientific societies and research funders are scrambling to respond to a wave of allegations of sexual harassment and scientific misconduct One society the American Geophysical Union has expanded its definition of research misconduct to include sexual harassment and rescinded an honor bestowed on a scientist facing allegations of misbehavior Universities have suspended or fired researchers under investigation for harassment or found to be harassers Until last week however the academies had remained mostly silent on how they might address misconduct among their 7000 members despite mounting criticism As of 29 May more than 2700 people had signed the petition launched by McLaughlin which asked NAS to kick out members “who have been sanctioned for sexual harassment retaliation and assault” The conundrum presented by lifetime memberships in the academies has been apparent for some time NAM member Arthur Kellermann dean of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in Bethesda Maryland last year filed a complaint urging his academy to eject physician Eric Noji A 2016 investigation by the university found that Noji who had been an adjunct professor at USUHS had plagiarized several research papers and misrepresented his credentials prior to his election to NAM according to The New York Times The university fired Noji but he remains a member of NAM In late 2016 the case prompted NAM to adopt a new rule allowing it to “rescind” a membership if “it is later determined by an authorized body that the information relied on for election is false” Other current academies members could be vulnerable to expulsion under new bylaws covering harassment In 2015 astronomer Geoffrey Marcy resigned from the University of California Berkeley after Buzzfeed published the results of a university investigation that concluded he had violated its policies on sexual harassment In March Thomas Jessell a Columbia University neuroscientist was fired by the school and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute after a university investigation concluded he had violated Columbia’s policies on consensual sexual relationships between faculty and students according to the Columbia Daily Spectator Exactly how the academies would carry out an expulsion and what evidence they might require before acting are just two questions facing their leadership councils Some argue that findings of misconduct by an institution should be enough to hit the eject button But NAS member Robert Weinberg a cancer scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge disagrees “I have little faith that findings of sexual harassment by the host institutions of accused parties will be adjudicated in a fashion that applies uniform standards of evidence and fairness” Weinberg wrote in an email to Science “It’s important to make sure there was due process … Allegations should not be sufficient to eject a member” says Robert Cook-Deegan a longtime observer of the academies and a science policy specialist with Arizona State University who is based in Washington DC He adds: “The academies would do well not to get into the policing and prosecution but rather identify the findings of courts or systematic and credible administrative processes” Unlike the US academies several foreign honorary societies do have procedures for ejecting members for misconduct But the German academy (called the Leopoldina) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences have not in living memory ejected members according to their spokespeople At the Royal Society in the United Kingdom “the list of expulsions is largely historical and the top reason cited is non-payment of subscriptions” a spokesperson wrote in an email AAAS (publisher of Science) in Washington DC, Europol,” Prime Minister Manuel Valls said this week.

Inderjeet Mehra was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia a condition in which stem cells cannot manufacture any cells in the blood last September his only hope lay in a bone marrow transplant But Mehra did not have any sibling After failing to get an Indian donor Mehra started looking at the possibility of finding a German donor He finally found a match six months later but the cost proved a problem The transplant costs about Rs 20 lakh — the majority of the expense was to transport the stem cells to India — and this has kept him from getting the life-saving treatment Mehra and several other patients like him are waiting for suitable donors and an appropriate financing mechanism to carry forward stem cell transplants that can save their lives Speaking at a summit organised by NGO Bharat Stem Cell on the increasing need for creating a bone marrow registry Dr Mammen Chandy director at Tata Medical Centre Kolkata and a transplant practitioner said “The sheer cost of a transplant makes it important to have a registry with donors who are locally available There is a growing need to make policymakers aware of the need to set up such a registry Whenever a patient taps a foreign donor the cost of transporting stem cells is so immense that it becomes impractical” Experts from the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) in the US said a national donor registry had emerged as the only possible solution to connect recipients and potential donors Vivek Kumar (18) from Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh donated stem cells to his brother who was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia in 2010 at

‘death to blasphemers’ and cursed the government for not taking action against France Related News A self-flagellating but double-edged anti-blasphemy rage has Pakistan in its grip once again Frontally it is aimed at the West but in actual fact it is the clerics’ reaction to the Pakistan army’s recent anti-Taliban drive After the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris a weak expiatory regret in the Islamic world has been superseded by familiar paroxysms over blasphemy by the magazine France was becoming isolated over the application of its “universalist” doctrine on immigrant communities in the face of “multiculturalist” abstention by its neighbours from reprinting the offending cartoons when the Muslim world jolted the West into its old groove of fear The big cities in Pakistan are being subjected to expressions of extreme latent violence In Lahore lawyers shouted “death to blasphemers” and cursed the government for not taking action against France Semi-literate lawyers recommend going to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) if the “impotent” Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) won’t listen No one recalled what happened last time we went to the court against India The ICJ is a remnant of the League of Nations and its “optional clause” scuttles its jurisdiction The cities are taken over by “religious powers” as the clerics now call themselves and business is disrupted through “million marches” and shutter-down strikes Outside the French consulate in Karachi a Pakistani photographer working for a French news agency was shot in the chest The two dozen terrorist organisations in the city that kill citizens for sport watched as the anti-blasphemy vandals expressed their piety through brickbats In March 2006 the Danish cartoons printed a year earlier caused one of Pakistan’s most historic cities Lahore to be put to the torch The politicians keen to steal the thunder of the clergy joined in the anti-cartoon march of the extremists and refused to act as a moderating influence in society Lahore’s leading cleric Sarfraz Naeemi of Tahafuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat Mahaz (Front for the Protection of the Honour of Prophet) staged a blood-curdling protest march in Lahore against Denmark (He was later killed by a suicide-bomber in a sectarian strike) Earlier Naeemi had taken up arms against the poor Christians of Sangla Hill charging desecration of the Quran In November 2005 the Christian community of Sangla Hill in Nankana district in Punjab experienced a most hair-raising day of violence and vandalism that burned down three churches a missionary-run school two hostels and several houses belonging to the Christian community The deed was done by a mob of some 3000 Muslims The Danish cartoons were avenged by destroying Pakistani property The country was already in a state of shell-shock by the virulence of the Sangla Hill violence Naeemi said that the vandals had done the right thing His extreme posture shamed even the jihadist militias He declared that the Christian clergy had set the churches on fire after the desecration incident and should be put behind bars and not allowed to leave the country He warned that he was taking a procession to Sangla Hill to get the Muslims released from jail He protested against religion minister Ijazul Haq’s statement that Muslims had destroyed the churches The rightwing Punjab government thought in 2006 that it could ride with Naeemi to capitalise on Muslim rage and win the 2007 elections But anything started by Naeemi was hardly going to be peaceful and of benefit to the government On Lahore’s Mall the rioters torched hundreds of cars and motorcycles and damaged government buildings and private businesses Outlets of foreign fastfood companies McDonald’s KFC and Pizza Hut as well as several local restaurants and businesses were attacked and set on fire Several shops and travel agencies were broken into and looted The demonstrators entered the Punjab legislative assembly and torched a room next to the chamber of the opposition leader After that they moved on to the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) building and broke its front They attacked the hotel Holiday Inn on Egerton Road and the nearby institution dedicated to the national poet Allama Iqbal smashing windows and burning cars On the Mall Dayal Singh Mansions came in for thorough destruction The blaze at the KFC restaurant spread to the upper stories of the Coopera Art Gallery a Muslim Commercial Bank branch a National Bank branch and a Telenor franchise The damage was estimated at Rs 45 billion The rage was suicidal The ruling party instead of condemning the rioters launched a tirade against Denmark and emphasised the importance of Islamic protest After that boys from Lahore’s schools and colleges entered the streets with clubs in their hands and set about breaking cars and setting them on fire The police stood aside watching probably longing to get into the act of destroying Pakistan They saw boys get together in a phalanx firing their guns in volleys Intelligence sources later said that the chain of violent incidents was orchestrated by the student wing of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD formerly known as the Lashkar-e-Toiba LeT) among others (The JuD was to attack Mumbai in November 2008 with its band of terrorists) Groups of at least 35 men each carried out most of the violence including burning and ransacking of buildings across Lahore The main group travelled around in a maroon Jeep and motorcycles and most of its members had long hair beards and were clad in commando uniform The JuD flag hung from the Jeep All of them were trained and many had been summoned to Lahore from other cities They were armed with petrol bombs firecrackers small weapons and a “fire accelerant” chemical Not to be outdone politicians took out a “silent” procession of parliamentarians in Islamabad one of them actually threatening violence “the next time round” It was the government in power in Islamabad that was threatened because a newspaper in Denmark had blasphemed The European Union which accounted for 30 per cent of Pakistan’s exports — Pakistan’s largest trading partner together with the United States accounting for a total 60 per cent of exports — was not the planned target In the north of Pakistan in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province then chief minister Akram Durrani thought he would let the same kind of thing happen in Peshawar and reap another windfall from the orgy of Islamic passion Some 60000 participated in the orgy and torched a KFC franchise two petrol stations 16 Daewoo buses several banks a police checkpost and offices of the Norwegian mobile phone firm Telenor One hospital was destroyed because it belonged to the Aga Khan Foundation and everyone considered the Aga Khan’s sect the Ismailis to be heretical The UN banned the LeT in 2005 only to see it change its name to the JuD Today the Americans are putting pressure on Islamabad to heed the UN call but the foreign office has lied once again saying: “When any entity or individual is proscribed by the UN we take immediate action” In 2015 the rumour in the papers is that the JuD has been banned by the government and its assets frozen but no one believes it The religious “powers” are on the upswing after “blasphemy” in Paris And the state is too weak to act writing threatening letters to the world instead about how it will not tolerate blasphemy The writer is consulting editor ‘Newsweek Pakistan’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: August 4 2017 7:56 pm Game of Thrones season 7 episode 4 will be the shortest ever Related News HBO’s Game of Thrones is an exciting fantasy show with an insane shock value and character depth That is the reason this show has garnered such a huge number of fans But this season has raised the bar even further and the three episodes that have aired yet have been exceptionally fast-paced and have had some dramatic unexpected developments Some of the side characters have been killed off to probably declutter the dramatis personae when the culminating action comes and some battles have been shown only offhandedly to save money in the CGI budget for the final war that would really matter But the events in the next episode will appear to go by even quicker Literally For it will be the shortest episode in the history of Game of Thrones The fourth episode titled The Spoils of War will clock only 50 minutes and is considerably shorter than the preceding episodes this season that have clocked 59 minutes (for the first two) and 63 (for the third one: The Queen’s Justice) This may sound dismaying to hardcore GoT fans but there is a piece of good news too This season will also have the longest Game of Thrones episode ever The finale of this season will be of 81 minutes long which is actually as long as some feature films The preview clip of the fourth episode shows Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys losing patience with Cersei Lannister’s (Lena Headey) victories over her and uttering angrily “All my allies are gone” and later “Enough with the clever plans” most likely taunting her adviser Tyrion Lannister for the elaborately devised battle strategies he drew up for her and her conquest of Westeros The fourth episode airs
