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

Ryan Gosling previews “Blade Runner 2049”: “It’s a lot more bleak”

first_img Related (L-R) Denis Villenueve, Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling/Warner Bros.(LAS VEGAS) — At CinemaCon in Las Vegas Monday night, Sony executive Tom Rothman treated the audience to an extended look at Blade Runner 2049, the upcoming sequel to the classic 1982 sci-fi film Blade Runner.The sequel’s star, Ryan Gosling, introduced the footage, noting the tremendous visual influence of the original. “I saw everything that stole from it first and when I was old enough, I think I was 13 or 14 I saw it for the very first time. I was just blown away by how influential this film had been,” Gosling said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gosling spilled more details on the new movie.“It’s the same iconic universe, but it’s changed over the course of the 30-year gap,” Gosling said. “It’s a lot more bleak in some ways. The director describes it as toxic. But it’s still the Blade Runner universe.”Gosling had kind words for co-star Harrison Ford, who is back as Rick Deckard — the lead character in the original film, a man charged with chasing down and killing android “replicants” only to find himself falling in love with one of them.“He came in and rolled up his sleeves and he just got to work,” Gosling told EW of Ford. “He was such a great partner to all of us, and such a great actor and a great guy.”Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, arrives October 6.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

At The Finish Line …Where only the truth matters

first_imgBILL NEALI couldn’t sugarcoat this if I wanted to.  Sure it would be easy to pat the Steelers on the back and applaud them for a great season and making the playoffs, but the truth of the matter is, it wasn’t a “great” season . . . it was a good season with moments of greatness.  Here’s the “Top Ten List” you know and love to right the ship and get ready to win the Lombardi next year.  (For you Allderdice grads, that’s the name of the Super Bowl Trophy . . . my bad.  How and why would you know that? – – – Oh shut-up.  It’s just a joke.  And yes, I know you have the great Curtis Martin, which is why I brought this up to begin with . . . Curtis will lead the third class into this year’s 3rd Annual Pittsburgh City League High School All-Sports Hall of Fame Awards.  “Gotcha!”)Now . . . Your Top Ten:#10 -You’ve gotta get at least one shut-down corner and yes, I would take “Pacman Jones” if he’s available.#9 -Time to secure a legit backup quarterback.#8 -Yes, you keep Chris Boswell.  End of story.#7 -Play calling was good, but we can do with even fewer questionable calls.  C’mon you know the ones!#6 -The D-line is very respectful, but we still need an absolute beast on the line.  A J.J. Watts if you will.#5 -“Big Ben” don’t get it twisted . . . a few less interceptions from you sure won’t break the bank.#4 -Of course you bring back James Harrison . . . he’s still the best ya got . . . “No Dis” meant Cam Hayward.#3 -Please go get a punter that can always . . . not sometimes . . . but always punt the ball deep.#2 -At receiver you’re great.  At running back you’ll be great again, but it may be time to get a tight end that can run after catch . . . Randy Grossman, Bennie Cunningham, Eric Green.  Ring a bell?#1 -Last, but not least . . . bring back the same Steeler nasty we put on the Bengals . . . but for every Sunday!
