Otto Energy Completes Galoc Drilling (Philippines)

first_imgOtto Energy Limited, as operator of the producing Galoc oilfield joint venture offshore the Philippines, provides the following update on the Galoc-5H and Galoc-6H drilling campaign in SC14C, part of the Galoc Phase II development approved in 2012.During the period from 0600 hours (AWST) on 14 August 2013 to 0600 hours (AWST) on 21 August 2013, drilled the G-6H 8½”  hole section to 3,958 metres through the Galoc reservoir  interval. The well intersected a 260m section of very high quality reservoir which was at the high end of prognosed outcomes.The well subsequently drilled through poorer sections of formation and the decision was made to TD the well early to ensure successful completion across the high quality reservoir. The 5½” completion liner has now been run over the high quality reservoir section.The well is currently being suspended prior to running the upper completion and well clean-up flow.The forward plan is to move the rig to the G-5H well and drill the 8½” hole horizontally for approximately 2,400 metres through the reservoir interval prior to running the completion liner and assembly.Location and Proposed DepthThe Galoc field is located in Service Contract SC14C (Galoc Sub Block) in 290 metres of water approximately 65km North West of Palawan Island and 350km south of Manila in the Republic of the Philippines. The Galoc-5H and Galoc-6H development wells are being drilled within the existing producing field that has delivered over 10 MMbbls of production since the field was commissioned in 2008.After drilling of both Galoc-5H and Galoc-6H is completed, the DOF operated Skandia Hercules construction vessel will be used to install the subsea equipment and complete the hook-up of both wells to the FPSO Rubicon Intrepid.First oil from the Phase II wells is expected in November 2013[mappress]Press Release, August 21, 2013last_img read more

Friends will face off in finals

first_imgUtah State Amateur Today’s 36-hole final at Wolf Creek ResortMichael McRae vs. Jon Morgan, 7:30 a.m. Saturday’s resultsWolf Creek Resort Golf Course QuarterfinalsMichael McRae def. Clark Rustand, 4 & 3Jeff Powars def. Clay Ogden, 2 & 1Zach Johnson def. Nic Van Vuuren, 21 holesJon Morgan def. Dan Horner, 3 and 2SemifnalsMcRae def. Powars, 19 holesMorgan def. Johnson, 1-up36-hole Final Michael McRae vs. Jon Morgan, 7:30 a.m., Sunday E-mail: sor@desnews.comcenter_img EDEN — Even though they are separated by 13 years, Jon Morgan and Michael McRae became acquainted about seven years ago when the two used to play ping-pong together, of all things.Morgan had a friend who tended McRae and his younger brother when their parents were out of town, and Morgan hung out with the boys and played some ping-pong and video games.At the time, Morgan was a University of Utah golfer and McRae was an aspiring junior golfer, but they’ve never played golf together in the years since.They’ll get that opportunity this morning when the two face off in the 36-hole finals of the Men’s State Amateur golf tournament at Wolf Creek Resort Golf Course.The 31-year-old Morgan will be making his second appearance in the State Am finals after losing to Gregg Oliphant in the 2002 finals at Hidden Valley. He’s played less than usual this year and not that great, but said he finally found a swing while practicing Tuesday night.For the 18-year-old McRae, it’s by far the biggest accomplishment of his young golfing life. He won his age group in the Junior Amateur when he was 13 and last year won the Utah Junior Open. Otherwise, he has played in the shadow of other junior golfers over the years. But a year playing for the St. Mary’s College golf team this past year “really elevated my game,” he said.Morgan advanced to the finals by beating former Rutgers University golfer Dan Horner 3 and 2 in the morning quarterfinals and stopping just-graduated Southern Utah golfer Zach Johnson 1-up in the semifinals.McRae knocked off defending champion Clark Rustand 4 and 3 in the morning and came from behind to beat 46-year-old school teacher Jeff Powars on the 19th hole in the afternoon match.Morgan and McRae will tee it up bright and early this morning at 7:30 for Utah’s most prestigious amateur golf championship. They’ll play 18 holes in the morning and 18 in the afternoon.After both completed their second exhausting day in a row by winning two matches, they were joking around and reminiscing about old times in the McRae basement in Olympus Cove.”We go way back,” Morgan said. “This will be a lot of fun tomorrow.”The match of the day was the McRae-Powars duel that was never more than a one-hole difference with McRae never leading until the extra hole.Powars is a California native who played on the USC golf team for a year before graduating from the school more than 20 years ago. He moved to Utah 15 years ago and works as a junior-high social studies teacher at Sunset Jr. High.”I felt like I was playing one of my students out there,” joked Powars, who kept a smile on his face all day. “I was thinking, ‘if we could just put him in detention for a couple of hours.’ “Powars went 1-up on McRae five times only to see the youngster come back every time. He went 1-up for the final time with a birdie putt at No. 14 and kept the lead until the final hole.Both players hit the green in two and when McRae’s long attempt missed, all Powars needed was to get down in two from 25 feet above the hole.He thought he made his initial putt, but it slid five feet past. With victory in his grasp, he left his putt six inches short and it was on to the 19th hole.Again it looked like Powars had the edge when McRae hit his drive out of bounds. However, Powars hooked his drive into the hillside on the left and was forced to chip out onto the fairway. Then he left his third shot 75 feet below the hole.Meanwhile, McRae hit his next drive right down the middle and pitched on to the green 10 feet past the hole in four. When Powars three-putted for a double bogey, McRae drilled his putt into the center of the cup for an unlikely win with a bogey.”I knew I wasn’t out of it,” McRae said. “I never pack it in. I just capitalized like I’ve been doing all week.”For Powars, it was a disappointing end to an incredible week that saw him play 108 holes, the most of any player through Saturday evening.”I played as well as I could possibly play,” said Powars, who was trying to become one of the oldest State Am champions in history. “I’m just a Saturday player. This is far beyond my expectations.”In his morning upset of Rustand, McRae won five of the first six holes and hung on to win against the 2004 champ, who was clearly off his game.”I just didn’t have it today,” said Rustand. “It was just one of those things, just an off day. Michael did everything he had to to win and he’s a good player.”After disposing of Horner in the morning, Morgan had a tough match against Johnson, who knocked off medalist Nic Van Vuuren in the morning in a stirring 21-hole match that looked like neither player wanted to win.Johnson missed a three-foot putt on 17 to go down a hole, only to see Van Vuuren leave a five-footer to win the match short on the final hole like Powars did later.Van Vuuren missed a birdie putt at the first playoff hole and then Johnson three-putted the next hole, missing a short putt for the win. Finally on the third playoff hole, Johnson won when Van Vuuren missed a six-foot putt.Morgan and Johnson halved every hole except five during the even match. It was all square, going into the par-3 16th when Morgan’s 8-iron landed 10 feet in front of the hole, nearly rolled into the cup before ending up eight feet away. He sank the putt to go 1-up and held on with pars on the next two holes. “I know what it’s like to lose in the finals, but I’ve got everything to gain,” said Morgan of today’s final. last_img read more
