ConocoPhillips becomes operator of Tasmanian offshore permit

first_imgOil company 3D Oil has completed the farm-out of the T/49P permit offshore Tasmania to ConocoPhillips following the approval of documentation by the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Authority (NOPTA). “The completion of the farm-out of T/49P to ConocoPhillips places 3D Oil in a unique and enviable position for a small-cap company –where there is a clear pathway to ultimately supplying gas to the East Coast Market. 3D Oil said on Thursday that it completed the farm-out of 80 per cent interest to ConocoPhillips under a joint operating agreement (JOA) between the two companies. According toa farm-out agreement (FOA) signed in December, 3D Oil will receive a A$5million ($3.45 million) cash payment in recognition of previous permitexpenditure. ConocoPhillips will also undertake the acquisition of a 3D seismicsurvey of not less than 1,580 square kilometres within the permit to which 3DOil will make no financial contribution. “The company is very positive about its prospects. While global conditions are very challenging the potential for gas commercialization in Eastern Australia are very promising. Uponcompletion of the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of the survey, ConocoPhillipsmay elect to drill an exploration well which will fulfil the current Year 6work programme obligation. “3D Oil is uniquely placed for a small company to take advantage of this strengthening market with a fully funded gas exploration program in the highly prolific and prospective offshore Otway Basin”, the oil firm concluded. However, 3D Oil stated that the oil price will not affect the strategy of the T/49-P project with ConocoPhillips. The price of gas in southeast Australia is not linked to global oil prices. Oil demanddrop not an issue The companynoted that worldwide social distancing restrictions caused an unprecedentedfall in oil demand, which for the first time caused the price of WTI to fallbelow zero in late April. “[3D Oil] believes these conditions create opportunities for the company to exploit. The company is firmly focused on becoming a supplier to the burgeoning East Coast Gas market at a time of unique dynamics in local and global gas markets”, the company said. “While it is difficult to tell how the pandemic will affect gas demand in future, [3D Oil] believes that the current forecast of a supply shortage remains accurate”, 3D Oil said. If the explorationwell is drilled, 3D Oil will be carried for up to $30 million in drilling costsafter which it will contribute 20 per cent of drilling costs in line with itsinterest in the permit. Location of ConocoPhillips’ T/49P permit; Source: 3D Oil Under theterms of the original FOA, 3D Oil was to retain 25 per cent equity in T/49however following further negotiations the company has decided to reduce itsinterest in the permit to 20 per cent. This is in exchange for a reduction inits exposure to joint operation expenses. 3D Oil received approval from the Australian offshore regulator for the survey over the T/49P – named the Dorrigo survey – in May 2019. In itsThursday statement, the oil company also stated that the combination of fallingdomestic production on the East Coast, primarily from the Bass Strait, and agas-led recovery within Australia and the industrialised economies of southeastAsia will significantly improve the domestic gas market in the medium term.last_img read more

One year after debut, Jamieson comes full circle on Senior Day

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Cody Jamieson wasn’t satisfied and, standing on the other side of the Carrier Dome field Saturday, his head coach could already play Nostradamus. ‘It was good to see Cody play well out there,’ SU coach John Desko said after the game. ‘He’ll probably be the first to tell you he could’ve had a couple more. But it’s good that he’s scoring at the right time of year.’Later, Jamieson was asked about his performance on the day. One that included five points on the strength of a hat trick and two assists, including a behind-the-back flasher of a goal that has become something of the norm for Jamieson in the 2010 season. The five points matched a career-high and led No. 2 Syracuse to a 14-5 victory over winless Providence Saturday.Like his coach said — Jamieson only wanted more.‘I got stopped on the crease a couple times,’ Jamieson said. ‘Hit him in the leg a couple times.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThrough many games, Jamieson only points out areas where he could’ve done better. After SU’s 8-7 victory over Cornell on April 13, he lamented the inability to beat his defender all day despite scoring twice.Saturday, those were his only comments on his finishing ability. And it marked the attitude transformation that has accompanied Jamieson all season long, his first full year at Syracuse after a rocky road that led him on the path. Almost exactly a year ago to the date on Saturday’s Senior Day game, Jamieson heard the news for which he had been hoping for months.On April 23, 2009, he was cleared to play for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team. It came after months of waiting in which the NCAA reviewed his junior college credits before granting a waiver to allow those credits to transfer.And Saturday, he reflected on how long of a journey it has been.‘That’s what’s making this day feel so good,’ Jamieson said. ‘There was definitely that time when I didn’t expect to be out here and definitely not out here on Senior Day. So I just kind of took it all in and had fun with it.’Jamieson played his first game at Syracuse to much hype after two eye-popping seasons at Onondaga Community College. With Jamieson, OCC finished two consecutive seasons undefeated and won two JUCO national championships in a row.He was cleared to play for the Orange’s contest with Massachusetts last season, a game SU won while Jamieson experienced his first college minutes.That was about the only time last season he didn’t have an extended role in the Orange’s fortunes, however. It culminated in an overtime national championship victory over Cornell in which Jamieson tallied the winning goal.‘There were definitely nights looking at your ceiling wondering if it was going to happen,’ Jamieson said of his journey to Syracuse following that game. ‘So I leaned on my family and friends and hoped it would happen. I practiced every day with the team, and I still felt like I was part of the team. They didn’t make me feel like I wasn’t a part of the team, and it’s a great feeling right now.’And that momentum carried Jamieson to where he stands with the Orange this season — as one of its go-to scorers. He is currently second on the team with 23 goals and 35 points overall.And he expects it. Moreover, he expects to be better with each and every game. One year later, Jamieson is just going along for the ride and having fun — such as with his frequent behind-the-back strikers of goals.‘After I scored, looking at the sidelines and watching everybody smile,’ Jamieson said, ‘that’s what lacrosse is about. It’s about having fun, and I like bringing that kind of excitement.’ Published on April 25, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Commentslast_img read more


Shafer talks about 9/11 experience on tragedy’s 13th anniversary

first_imgIt has become the apt question in the 13 years since Sept. 11, 2001. Where were you?As Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer recalled his 9/11 experience at his weekly press conference on Thursday, he took long pauses in between words and phrases. It wasn’t for a lack of memory, but another flash of Shafer’s patriotism and emotional connection to the United States military.“Well it was horrible, first and foremost. It was horrible,” Shafer said. “Let us never forget what happened. You know, it was horrible.”Shafer was the defensive coordinator at Northern Illinois at the time and was living with his wife Missy, and two kids, Wolfgang and Elsa, in DeKalb, Illinois. On the morning of the fatal tragedy, Shafer was watching film, the old-fashioned way, and CNN was on the television. Every time he clicked the tape out to put in another, images of what was happening in New York and Washington D.C. appeared on the screen.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“What the heck’s going on here?” he recalls thinking.Five minutes later the second of the World Trade Center towers was hit and Joe Novak — Northern Illinois’ head coach from 1996-2007 — told Shafer and the other coaches to call their families and make sure everyone was OK.Shafer left the film room and went home to be with Missy, Wolfgang and Elsa for the rest of that day, and has seen a changed country ever since.“Ever since then, we’ve looked at life in these states so different, every one one of us,” Shafer said. “… It’s just profound. We look at life differently now. As parents, you get older and look at it and it’s crazy.“Before 9/11 and after 9/11.” Comments Published on September 11, 2014 at 12:26 pm Contact Jesse: | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


Syracuse struggles to produce at plate in conference play

first_img Published on April 6, 2015 at 10:44 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ In the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against North Carolina, Syracuse tallied nine hits and twice loaded the bases. But the Orange managed only two runs in a 6-2 loss.Over the last three weeks, SU scored more than four runs twice, and both in losses. Only when the Orange is trailing does it seem to get its offense going. “I don’t know if there’s a switch that goes off where it’s like, ‘Gosh, what do we got to lose here?’” head coach Leigh Ross said. The team is tightening up when the score’s tight, Ross added, and trying to tie the score with one swing of the bat.SU (14-19, 1-7 Atlantic Coast) is averaging less than four runs per conference game and sits last in the league in runs scored, batting average, slugging and on-base percentage. Syracuse’s coaches attributed the team-wide slump to self-imposed pressure.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Everybody is trying to do too much and we’re not just following our practice,” infielder Corinne Ozanne said. “It’s just become too much pressure that we’re putting on ourselves to succeed.”Ozanne is the only Orange hitter batting over .300 and leads the team in nearly every offensive category. Still, her home run rate and average have dropped as the season has progressed — though she did record three hits over the weekend. “It’s hard to get out of a slump,” Ozanne said. “Once you get out of a slump, it’s easier to say where you want to hit the ball.”The team’s hitting woes are not a result of facing ACC pitching, Ozanne said, because SU hit well in conference play last season. She pointed to the team’s three-game series with Louisville, during which the team scored 22 runs.Still, SU failed to win any of those games and most of its runs were scored while behind. Ross said that if she knew why the team could only score runs when losing, the team wouldn’t be losing games in the first place.“At the end of the day, I don’t care if we hit zero as long as we get wins,” hitting coach Matt Nandin said. Nandin attributed part of the problem to having a lineup reliant on multiple freshmen who aren’t used to this long of a season.Additionally, the Orange has faced an inconsistent game and practice schedule with inclement weather in Syracuse. The team has rarely been able to practice outside, where the lighting is different, and therefore unable to truly get its timing down.“Hitting live in (Manley Field House) is a completely different element,” said Nandin, who noted he didn’t want to use practice locations as an excuse.Over the weekend, SU tallied enough hits and had enough base runners to win both games, but struggled with timely hitting in the second game. The team had nine strikeouts, down from 16 in the previous double-header.But other than Ozanne, the middle of SU’s lineup struggled mightily.“Everybody through the lineup did a good job with just getting one quality at-bat, worried about that instead of thinking big picture and trying to score a bunch of runs,” Ross said after the game.But thus far, those quality at-bats haven’t translated into conference wins.

Campus leaders hold open university forum

first_imgStudents and faculty from both campuses spoke about the issue of food insecurity. Graduate student Deborah McDonald was sleeping in the parking lot of a Vons supermarket in Inglewood before she came to USC to study social work. When she arrived, she sought help from the University, but she was met with little support. “I think this is a wonderful experiment, and I’m really glad to be in the room,” Austin said. “What’s most encouraging to me is the fact that we create these forums where we can have a diversity of opinion around difficult issues.” Campus leaders held the University Forum Tuesday to discuss issues relating to tuition and community involvement. (Daily Trojan file photo) Shany Ebadi, USG’s co-chief diversity officer, said she wished the administration offered immediate responses to people’s concerns. She also said she had hoped for a bigger turnout. Multiple people spoke about their personal experiences with financial insecurity on campus, from housing issues to the tuition hike that was announced Tuesday — raising next academic year’s tuition by 3.5 percent to $57,256. “I think the attendance could have been better,” Ebadi said. “If we are having these discussions there should be much more voices at the table, instead of the government representatives that are already doing this advocacy.” At the forum, Malan also spoke about rising costs of housing on and near the University Park Campus. McDonald eventually learned about USC’s Homelessness Initiative, which includes access to a virtual food pantry and the USC Civic Engagement Housing Law Clinic, but she and other attendees at the forum said they are still not satisfied with the amount of resources available — or their level of accessibility. “[Developers] are going to charge $1,000 per bed … around USC,” Malan said. “And the reason they know they can charge that is because they know what USC Housing is charging for the dorm rooms. We, USC, drive this local housing market.” Plans for the forum were announced on March 6, weeks after six gay and bisexual former students filed a lawsuit against the University and former campus men’s sexual health doctor Dennis Kelly, whom they accused of sexual harassment and gender violence. The number of plaintiffs has now risen to 21, and the University has yet to release an official public statement on the lawsuit. The first of two conversational prompts at the forum asked how USC can balance tuition hikes with its goal of providing students with high-quality education. “The only way we can really care for our students here is to reinstate a sense of trust in our administration, and that really comes from a sense of accountability for things that have happened [like the Kelly allegations],” said Katie Thanos, a junior majoring in law, history and culture. “We feel like we’re being left in the dark, [and] we feel like our tuition dollars are being sent somewhere where they just kind of disappear … we don’t feel like we’re being listened to.” Tuesday’s forum, which was organized by the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Governments, the Staff Assembly and the Academic Senate, was held at the Ronald Tutor Campus Center with a live video feed from the Health Sciences Campus. The forum, held a week after the FBI disclosed that USC is at the forefront of the largest college admissions scandal in U.S. history, served as an opportunity for members in the campus community to voice their concerns about the state of the University. Campus leaders such as USG president and vice president-elects Trenton Stone and Mahin Tahsin, Interim President Wanda Austin and Academic Senate President Yaniv Bar-Cohen were in attendance. Bar-Cohen stressed that Austin and other members of the administration were there to listen to the community’s conversation. The forum was held a week after the FBI disclosed in its investigation that USC is at the center of the largest college admissions bribery scheme in U.S. history, with the largest number of parents and University officials involved out of the eight colleges named. “I really hate the fact that we call it food scarcity,” said Mark Malan, a member of the staff assembly and an accounting technician in the Provost’s office. “We have students that would be starving if it were not for the food bank. Putting fancy words on it doesn’t change the fact that these kids don’t have food.” “I hope that, after bringing this up, there’s more eyes and ears on the USC Housing Law Clinic,” said Jesse Ramirez, a graduate student in the Sol Price School of Public Policy. “Right now, if you go to the website and try to look them up, it’s as if they’re ghosts.” “I told [an admissions counselor] what was going on with me. The first thing she told me was that USC could not help me with housing,” McDonald said to a room of around 250 students, faculty and staff at an open forum held Tuesday to address community concerns. Madeline McCue, a junior majoring in international relations and global health, said that amid rising costs, she believes USC should have a stake in its students’ success after they graduate. “If the University is not adequately preparing you for a job that will get you that kind of income to pay back a student loan, it’s not worth it — quite literally,” McCue said. last_img read more
