Wintershall Dea comes up dry in Norwegian Sea appraisal well

first_imgOil and gas company Wintershall Dea is in the process of concluding the drilling of an appraisal well on the 6604/5-1 (Balderbrå) gas discovery in the northern Norwegian Sea. The well is dry. Scarabeo 8 rig; Author: SP MacThe appraisal well 6604/5-2 S is located in PL 894 where Wintershall Dea is the operator.The well has been drilled about 113 kilometers southwest of the Aasta Hansteen field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea.The 6604/5-1 gas discovery was proven in Upper Cretaceous reservoir rocks (the Springar Formation) in 2018. Prior to drilling the appraisal well, the operator estimated resources at between 7 and 19 billion standard cubic meters (Sm3) of recoverable gas and between 1 and 3 million Sm3 of recoverable condensate.The objective of the well was to delineate the Balderbrå discovery. The well encountered the Springar Formation in three intervals totaling 210 meters, with a total of about 140 meters of sandstone with poor reservoir quality. Only traces of gas were encountered, and pressure communication with the discovery well has not been confirmed. The well is classified as dry.Resource estimates for the discovery have been reduced to between 3 and 8 billion Sm3 of recoverable gas and between 0.2 and 1 million Sm3 of recoverable condensate. The licensees will assess the discovery together with other discoveries in the area for further follow-up.Extensive volumes of data have been collected and samples have been taken.This is the third exploration well in production license 894, which was awarded in APA 2016.The well 6604/5-2 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 3816 meters and a measured depth of 4121 meters below sea level, and the well was terminated in the Springar Formation in the Upper Cretaceous.Water depth at the site is 1207 meters. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.The well 6604/5-2 S was drilled by the Scarabeo 8 drilling rig, which will now drill wildcat well 6406/3-10 in production license 836 S in the Norwegian Sea, where Wintershall Dea Norge is also the operator.The oil company has already received safety consent to use the Saipem-owned Scarabeo 8 rig to drill this well.Spotted a typo?

first_imgBILL NEAL:10—I am kicking this one off with the ongoing Legends Series…I am just telling you what Kenny Durrett told me, and when Kenny Durrett talked basketball, people listened.  And I quote, “Look, when it came to that team, Petey…aka Petey Gibson…handled the ball and there was none better. And I was a big man that could do small man stuff. But Marv Snowden could do it all . . . Marv could just play.  He did it all and well and he would “D” you up the moment he got off the bus!” So if K.D. said it…well, you know.  (And please you so called basketball historians, try to remember the night Marv Snowden came home with the West Virginia team he played for and came off the bench to drop 24 on the Panthers. Yep, the stuff legends are made of!!!:09—Needless to say, I could go on until Christmas about the owner of the L.A. Clippers and his super stupid, but real racist comments that by now you’ve heard about.  But I won’t.  I will tell you this, anytime a man pimps his so-called girlfriend out by telling her she can sleep with Blacks, but don’t hang around them at the games tells you this…IF – IT – LOOKS – LIKE – A – DUCK – AND – WALKS – LIKE – A – DUCK – AND QUACKS – LIKE – A DUCK – MMMAAANNN – IT’S – A – DAMN – DUCK!

first_imgTRAINER QUOTES -30- FLAVIEN PRAT, RICHARD’S BOY, SECOND: “I had a good race today. Last time I rode him, I wasn’t on the lead and I think being on the lead today made all the difference. He’s so much better on the turf, he did a great job. It’s always sad to be beat by so little, but I don’t have any excuses.” GARY STEVENS, BOOZER, WINNER: “He loves this turf course. He runs well off the hill even though he hasn’t run off it for a while. Mark had him sharp today and he broke real sharp. I just followed Mike (Smith, aboard Forest Chatter) the whole way down the hill and when we crossed the dirt, I pushed the button and he just ground it out. He’s a lot of fun to ride, he’s a true professional.“I knew when I got up to the top of the hill before the race that he was sharp. He was on his toes; he was dancin’ and prancin’ around. He went into the gate aggressive. I told Mark this morning that I was going to try and put him on the lead, or close to it and he just smiled at me.” MARK GLATT, BOOZER, WINNER: “He comes with his game every time. Sometimes they’re a little bit better than him and sometimes we’re running him at a distance that he’s not at his best, because he’s a good Cal-bred, and to run against Cal-bred company, sometimes the distances fluctuate a little bit.“I think a mile, a mile and a sixteenth are his best distances, a mile and an eighth is a hair too far, and he runs good down the hill. I wasn’t really concerned about him shortening up. He’s pretty versatile.”center_img AL AND SANDEE KIRKWOOD, OWNERS, BOOZER, WINNER: “He’s definitely paid his way for us. We’ve had a lot of fun with him. He’s always competitive. He’s hardly ever off the board. He won a hundred -grander coming down the hill before (California Flag Handicap, Oct. 18, 2014). We ran him a mile-and-an-eighth last time, he ran third behind some real good horses, so we decided he had a little extra wind for this race and he sure did. Gary did a good job riding him and Mark Glatt’s done a good job training him.” NOTES: Winning owners Al and Sandee Kirkwood are from Ridgefield, Washington. They have been in racing since 1988.

Jeweller Kevin Friedman gilds the ordinary

first_imgKevin Friedman will be appearing in the next episode of Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part TV series on Sunday, 31 August at 9pm on SABC2. Kevin Friedman’s jewellery has been showcased in prestigious magazines around the world. (Image: Kevin Friedman) • Kevin Friedman +27 11 483 2620 [email protected] • Jewellery to disarm Africa • Turning jobless into jewellers • Mintek produces African jewelleryLucille DavieHis jewellery has been worn by actress Charlize Theron, and has been showcased on the international market at $16-million.Jewellery designer Kevin Friedman produces one-of-a-kind pieces that have won him awards. The necklace worn by Theron was showcased at the 2000 Paris Fashion Week. The piece, a 4.18 carat emerald-cut diamond with 684 smaller diamonds, won him the De Beers Diamond International Award.His Ponahalo necklace, created for the Geneva-based Steinmetz group, is composed of a 316.15 carat diamond which was cut into five stones, and together with glass beads and 276 safety pins, was made into a Marie Antoinette-style necklace. The diamond was found at the De Beers Venetia mine in 2005, and was given the name Ponahalo, a Sotho word for “vision”, as the mine is in Limpopo Province where Sotho is spoken. The beads and safety pins are items that the Venda people in Limpopo use in religious rituals.The necklace was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, and auctioned at the Monaco Grand Prix in the same year. This necklace and other jewellery items of Friedman’s were featured in the US magazine LuxLife in 2008. He indicates that his items range in price from £1 to £20-million.This global South African trained as a fine artist, and now describes himself as a “jewellery artist”. For him if an item “has beauty it deserves to exist”. So, if it’s a tin can which he covers in beads, or a diamond, it has aesthetic and equal value, he states.His pieces have featured in the US luxury speciality store Neiman Marcus, in luxury American home furnishings and home décor retailer Gumps of San Francisco, and Woman’s Day magazine. He has also created a line of beadwork Christmas decorations for the Designers’ Guild in London, as well as a line of pewter and wood desktop items for Tiffany & Co in New York.Friedman uses found objects to create jewellery too. In 2010 he created his iRibbit collection for the iStore in Sandton, Johannesburg. Using Apple keyboard parts he created earrings and cufflinks. He combines the computer bits with precious metals and stones – the result is a rosary cut-out of motherboards, a neckpiece made from iPod earphone pieces, and a candle holder for Hannukah.“Kevin is a renaissance man who draws on the world around him for inspiration and creativity,” indicates, the studio, and online store, specialising in African-themed jewellery and home and office décor, from which Friedman works and exhibits.He makes custom-designed pieces for corporate and private clients internationally, with a focus on clients in the US. His popular and award-winning Ndebele tree topper has appeared on eight re-issues of South African stamps.Friedman is a seventh-generation jewellery maker. His grandfather Jack Friedman – originally from Riga in Latvia – set up a jewellery manufacturing factory in Johannesburg in 1934. He was a founding member of the South African Jewellery Council and he and his brother Frank were apparently influential in developing the South African jewellery industry. Frank won awards from the Gold Council and the Chamber of Mines.“Kevin says that his father was particularly encouraging during the course of his career, allowing him to experiment and to push the envelope, while teaching him that education is the starting point of strength,” records Frankliwild.comFriedman believes women who are confident wear his pieces, “because the pieces are very strong and they do draw attention”.“I work in thought processes rather than collections, so every day is a new collection,” he said at the 2012 London Fashion Week.He has just produced a new range of jewellery, coming out of a recent trip to Cuba. He has changed his colour palette from bold African primaries to lighter greens, yellows, blues and pinks to “convey a sway of colour and light”.“There is a sense of musicality in the necklaces which are intended to mould sensually to the body, yet dance with it,” he indicates. He has used flowers, shells, beads and long strands of brightly coloured cloth, and even a miniature dice on one necklace, “a throwback to Havana’s wicked gambling past”.“My style has revealed a different kind of boldness. It is gentler but still bold, in a different way.”last_img read more
