Spectrum begins new Barents Sea seismic survey

first_imgMulti-client seismic data specialist Spectrum has started the acquisition of a new seismic survey of areas available in the ongoing Norwegian 24th licensing round.Spectrum said on Wednesday that the new Norsel High 3D acquisition comprises of at least 1,600 square kilometers, covering four blocks that are included in the round.Data is being acquired by survey partner Sovcomflot (SCF) using its high capacity vessel Ivan Gubkin, formerly known as the Polarcus Amani, with a triple source configuration and a Q-marine acquisition system.“Utilizing these latest acquisition technologies combined with broadband processing will ensure optimal imaging of several large structural closures at the Jurassic and Triassic levels partially identified in the area from existing Spectrum data,” said Spectrum.The company added that the program further includes 3D broadband reprocessing of 2,000 square kilometers of neighboring 3D Spectrum data that cover an additional six blocks included in the 24th licensing round.Merging the newly acquired survey with the existing two datasets through a modern broadband processing sequence will result in a single contiguous, conformable dataset of 3,600 square kilometers covering ten prospective blocks.According to Spectrum, a high quality fast-track 3D volume will be created for delivery before the end of August 2017 allowing sufficient time for evaluation of the area prior to the application deadline of the round on November 30.Further interim Pre-Stack Time Migrated data will be made available in time for application revision prior to November. Pre-Stack Depth Migration will be optional following round block award.last_img read more

Kvaerner lands decommissioning gig with Shell

first_imgNyhamna expansion  Kvaerner noted it has been the main contractor for the expansion of the Nyhamna plant which will be completed in 2017. Kvaerner was also the main contractor when the first part of the plant was built in 2007.The expansion of the plant consists of two parts. The first part includes land-based compression of gas from the Ormen Lange offshore field with a new compressor which will maintain gas pressure at Nyhamna as the pressure in the reservoir drops.The second part includes export and process facilities for the Polarled pipeline which will transport gas from the Statoil-operated Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea to Nyhamna, once the field becomes operational. The Polarled pipeline was completed in September 2015. The compression and export of gas through the 482-kilometer long pipeline is scheduled to start in the autumn of 2018.Shell is the operator for Ormen Lange and the gas plant at Nyhamna but once Aasta Hansteen becomes operational, Gassco will be the operator of Nyhamna with Shell in charge of technical operation.According to information from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, the expansion will increase Nyhamna’s export capacity from 70 to 84 million Sm3 per day.Offshore Energy Today Staff Norwegian engineering and construction services company Kvaerner has been awarded a contract with Shell for the disposal and demolition of the subsea compression pilot at Nyhamna in Norway. The onshore Nyhamna facility processes gas from the Shell-operated Ormen Lange field located 140 km north-west of Kristiansund, in the Norwegian Sea.The gas from the field arrives onshore at the Nyhamna plant where impurities are removed and then piped through one of the world’s longest subsea pipelines, Langeled, which runs about 1,200 km from Nyhamna to Easington in England.An upgrade project, which will enable the plant to receive gas from more fields through a new pipeline, is currently in progress.Kvaerner said on Thursday that the scope of work of this new contract consists of removal and demolition of approximately 2 200 tonnes of modules. The modules will be transported from Nyhamna to Kvaerner’s facilities at Stord for dismantling and recycling. The work will start immediately and the first part, consisting of removal of modules from the test pit will be completed in 2017. The remaining modules will be removed in 2018, said Kvaerner.“This is an important contract for Kvaerner’s decommissioning unit, and yet again we prove our competitiveness in this marked,” says Guro Løken, SVP Decommissioning & Marine Operations in Kvaerner.last_img read more

FIFA World Cup qualifying matches for 2020 postpone to 2021

first_imgAsian qualifying matches for the 2022 FIFA World Cup set for this fall will instead be played in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) jointly announced Wednesday the continental qualifying matches, scheduled to take place during FIFA international match windows in October and November this year, will be rescheduled to 2021. “With the aim of protecting the health and safety of all participants, FIFA and the AFC will continue to work together to closely monitor the situation in the region and to identify new dates for the respective qualifying matches,” the two organizations’ joint statement read. Asian countries are currently in the second round of the World Cup qualifying campaign, which began in September last year. Following the winter break, the competition was supposed to resume in March, but the COVID-19 outbreaks across the continent forced FIFA and the AFC to reschedule matches for later in the year. South Korea, trying to qualify for their 10th consecutive World Cup, are in Group H, alongside North Korea, Turkmenistan, Lebanon and Sri Lanka. South Korea have played four matches, while the rest have played five matches each. In early June, FIFA and the AFC moved South Korea’s matches against Turkmenistan and Sri Lanka on March 26 and March 31 to Oct. 8 and Oct. 13. Loading… The all-Korea showdown was rescheduled from June 4 to Nov. 12, while a South Korea-Lebanon match, set for June 9, was moved to Nov. 17. FIFA and the AFC both said at the time that those fixtures could change again, depending on how well the virus would be contained in Asia and whether travel restrictions are eased. read also:NFF  To Disburse FIFA’s $2m Fund after getting Sports Ministry’s Approval There are eight groups of five nations in the second round.

Aizawl FC create history, become first club from north-east to win I-League

first_imgAizawl FC, a small team from Mizoram, created history on Sunday by becoming the first club from north-east to win the I-League as they beat Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan to the title race by drawing 1-1 with Shillong Lajong.Lajong had taken the early lead when centre-forward Asier Pierrick Dipanda slammed home a header in the ninth minute at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong.WATCH VIDEOThat complicated things for the visitors as they needed at least a draw to win the title. But Aizawl recovered from the setback to dominate the game thereafter.Despite some stout defending by the hosts, William Lalnunfela finally made sure that Aizawl won the title when he found the equaliser in the 67th minute.Having beaten Mohun Bagan 1-0 last week, Aizawl FC were three points ahead of Bagan on the points table and needed a draw or a win to lift the title.Mohun Bagan, on the other hand needed to win, which they did by beating Chennai City FC 2-1, but they were dependent on Shillong Lajong’s victory for their fate.Aizawl ended the league on 37 points while Mohun Bagan finished second on 36. They have won the I-League title in their second season, becoming the first club from the Northeast to bag the title.Aizawl FC and coach Khalid Jamil, with their shoe-string budget and mostly local players, have indeed created Indian football’s fairytale like Leicester City did in the Premier League last year.Jamil said he was happy that the Team has been able to finish the job.advertisement”At half time, I just told the boys that you won’t get another such 45 minutes in your life. We knew we were 45 minutes away from being the Champion. We had to be extra special in the second half,” he said at the post-match press conference.”It’s not just about me or any individual,” he stressed mentioning that it has all been about “teamwork.””It is about the boys. They played continuously and played well. They deserve the credit.”This is my biggest victory ever,” Jamil pronounced. “I always wanted to win the Hero I-League. Every time at the start of the season, I used to tell myself that this year I should win it. I had to wait. And today we have won,” he added.Meanwhile, Shillong Lajong coach Thangboi Singto congratulated Aizawl FC on the victory. “They were consistent all throughout. They are the deserving champions,” Singto said.Aizawl would not have at all played in the I-League this season as they finished eighth last year but after a few Goan sides pulled out of the country’s top-flight league, they got a lifeline to stay afloat.Their feat is comparable to Leicester City who won the title in 2015-16 season after they were on the verge of relegation the previous year.A club whose budget is just around Rs 2 crore (Mohun Bagan spend the same amount in buying Sony Norde), it’s an achievement of enormous proportion.The match, the Northeast derby, was though not without controversy as Aizawl played under protest after finding out that the title-deciding game would be conducted by officials from Bengal.Aizawl protested because Mohun Bagan were also in title contention and playing a simultaneous match. The Northeastern club said that they have earlier requested the AIFF to appoint neutral match officials from other states.last_img read more
