Hurricane suspends output guidance after Lancaster well shut-in

first_imgThe Hurricane-operated Lancaster field is now in its first phase of development, the EPS, consisting of two wells tied back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO vessel. The first oil was achieved in June 2019. “Whilst the wells show high productivity individually, their proximity and associated interference behaviour require further data acquisition before the company can be confident about optimum long-term well rates. This latest development reinforces that. Production has averaged 15,500 bopd year to date. Hurricane has been carrying out ongoing testing of the two Lancaster EPS wells in order to determine the sustainability of combined production rates up to gross 20,000 bopd. The water production from the 205/21a-7Z well at the time the instability was experienced was in line with the water production that had been seen over the previous weeks. The company plans to increase this rate incrementally, to determine its maximum sustainable level. In an update on Friday, Hurricane said that achieving this target rate at a sustainable level has not been possible as the impact of increasing production rates resulted in instability in the flow regime on the 205/21a-7Z well as a result of interference between the wells. Hurricane Energy has shut-in one of two wells at the Lancaster Early Production System (EPS), located in the West of Shetland area, due to interference between two producing wells. As a result, Hurricane has suspended its full-year production guidance. The Lancaster EPS is currently producing from the 205/21a-6 well at a rate of approximately 10,300 bopd. Dr Robert Trice, Chief Executive of Hurricane, commented: “The results of the recent testing of the Lancaster EPS wells at elevated combined production rates are disappointing and the degree of interference encountered is unexpected. This process will result in a period of production substantially below forward guidance of net 18,000 bopd and Hurricane is, therefore, suspending previous full-year guidance of net 17,000 bopd. This has led to a decision to shut-in the 205/21a-7Z well for the time being and return to a period of testing maximum sustainable rates from just the 205/21a-6 well. “This data acquisition process continues, and further updates will be provided once we have determined our target plateau production rate with the existing well configuration”.last_img read more

‘Quarterback’ Mo Adams leads Syracuse in final stretch of the season

first_img Published on October 25, 2017 at 11:21 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44 Facebook Twitter Google+ Of the 13 Syracuse players who have played in at least 13 games this season, only three haven’t recorded a point. One of them is goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert, and another is freshman defender Sondre Norheim. The third is the latter’s “role model,” sophomore captain Mo Adams.“I want to perform like (Adams),” Norheim said. “He really gave me an impression of how you have to play in this league. Having that aggression, and just that you can’t really hold back.”After picking up All-Freshman Atlantic Coast Conference honors as a freshman, something Norheim hopes to replicate, Adams seems to be everywhere for Syracuse (6-8-2, 0-6-1 ACC), except the score sheet. Luckily for SU, points aren’t what make Adams valuable. The midfielder covers ground from his own defensive third well into the attacking zone. While he roams, he points, directing other teammates. When he receives the ball, he dictates play. In the lone game Adams missed this season, SU lost to Akron 1-0. If the Orange is going to pick up its first conference win Friday at No. 1 Wake Forest (15-1-0, 7-0-0) or next week in the ACC tournament, Adams will be at the forefront, orchestrating Syracuse’s play.I have to keep the shape of the team, keep the balance of the team. When we do have possession kind of everything goes through me. In football, I’m like the quarterback of the team, for example, or the point guard in basketball.Mo AdamsIn Syracuse’s usual 3-5-2 formation, Adams plays toward the back of the midfield, more defense-centric than the other midfielders. Adams staying back allows Jonathan Hagman and Hugo Delhommelle to press forward into the attack, resulting in the midfielders ranking second and third on the team in scoring, respectively.While Adams starts near the backline, he doesn’t stay stagnant there. Against then-No.17 Louisville on Sept.15, the midfielder lurked well into the Cardinals’ zone. He shuffled side to side with his hand rested just off the hip of the backtracking Louisville attacker. The backwards waltz continued for 10-yards before the Cardinal player reluctantly passed the ball back to his goalkeeper. As the two players moved upfield to play the ensuing lob, they exchanged words. Adams grinned and nodded his head at his opponent.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Even though it’s soccer and it gets serious at times, you got to have some fun you know,” Adams said. “They say something and I say something back … I relish when it’s kind of like that.”Adams’ voice projects during the matches, often reaching the stands at SU Soccer Stadium. His talk on the field helps motivate his teammates, Norheim said.It’s not always trash talk, though. During brief stoppages in play he aligns his teammates into their proper positioning. Against Ohio State on Oct. 18, Adams assured freshman midfielder Lukas Rubio he was in the right spot on the outside wing, a place Adams often looks to spread the ball from his inside position.“Man you’re doing a good job finding that pocket, keep doing that. It will come” Adams told Rubio at halftime.Five minutes into the second half, Adams jogged upfield while his teammates quickly advanced the ball. Hagman one-touched the ball up to Rubio who popped the ball up with his right foot and fired low and away, placing the ball in the back right corner of the Ohio State goal.Adams didn’t get the assist, but directing Rubio to the right spot led to the eventual goal that snapped Syracuse’ then-four game losing skid.“He’s behind you (and) he sees more in front of you,” said Adnan Bakalovic, who plays the outside wing, like Rubio. “He sees everything that’s in front of him and he just gives you baby steps to get everything spot on. Moving a couple inches to the left or to the right, simple stuff like that.”Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre called Adams an “emotional leader.” In Syracuse’s most recent loss to then-No.7 Clemson, Adams walked alone following the final whistle. His face sunk into his shirt. It was in reaction to a result SU could no longer afford.In the final stretch of the season, Syracuse needs to be near perfect, and it all starts with its sophomore captain.

UPDATE: An ESPN spokesperson told Richard Deitsch of The Athletic on Wednesday that the network “has no plans moving forward” to use Ball as an on-air guest, on-the-record digital source or background source for the network after his comment to Qerim. Ball’s attorney, Denise White, later disputed Deitsch’s report, claiming Ball has been offered a weekly role at an ESPN Radio affiliate. White did not disclose the affiliate. ESPN has not commented publicly on either report.ORIGINAL ARTICLE: ESPN has released a statement following LaVar Ball’s controversial appearance on “First Take” on Monday.”LaVar Ball’s comment to Molly Qerim Rose was completely inappropriate,” ESPN said in a statement to TMZ. “We made him aware of that.”The network’s statement was in reference to Ball’s remark to the show’s female host.LaVar shooting his shot at Molly Qerim during First Take interview?
