NOPSEMA approves Santos’ WA-437-P geotechnical and geophysical survey

first_imgGeophysical data collection will consist of single beam echo sounder (SBES); multi beam echo sounder (MBES); side scan sonar (SSS); and sub-bottom profiling (SBP). In an update earlier this week, Carnarvon said that pre-FEED contracts were recently awarded to three contractors. The site survey is required to support pre-engineering studies for any future development and aims to aid in the understanding of the local geology and identify any potential subsea hazards. The timing of the Survey is dependent upon vessel availability, weather conditions and the receipt of the required statutory approvals. The geotechnical survey is required to collect detailed information on the properties of the seabed and the underlying shallow sediments to build a picture of the local geology of the area and support geophysical data collected. The Phase 2 may follow Phase 1 or start as part of a subsequent mobilisation during 2020/2021 and is estimated to take 45 days to complete. Both phases will be completed by December 2021. The preferred development concept is an initial phase of oil and condensate development followed by a future phase of gas export. Shallow water depth allows for simple wellhead platform (WHP) and FPSO development. The geophysical survey will consist of; in-situ penetration testing; borehole sampling via piston coring, vibrocoring or rock coring (substrate pending); and box coring.

The Phase 1 of the survey is planned to start as early as Q2 2020 and is estimated to take 15 days to complete. The Dorado development is, like the proposed survey, located in WA-437-P where Santos is the operator with an 80 per cent interest and Carnarvon Petroleum is its partner with the remaining 20 per cent. Santos WA Northwest has received approval from Australia’s NOPSEMA for a geotechnical and geophysical survey within Permit WA-437-P, located around 145 km from the town of Port Hedland. Under the terms of the contracts, the parties will work independently to advance their FPSO designs and mature their vessel construction plans and supply terms.last_img read more

Appiah:Black Stars ready for Mali clash

first_imgGhana coach Akwasi Appiah says his team is fully prepared to face Mali on Thursday.The Black Stars threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with DR Congo in the opening Group B game at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.The disappointing results have awaken critics of the four-time African champions who aim to end a staggering 31-year wait for an African title in South Africa.Players and supporters of the team have bemoaned the missed opportunity by the Black Stars to get their campaign off to a flying start following the opening draw with DR Congo.But coach Appiah believes his team has recovered from the opening set back and are set to jump-start their campaign with a win over Mali though admitting to the herculean task ahead.“After the first game, the technical team and playing body, almost everyone was not happy but at the moment we have psyched ourselves up and we are really prepared for the game,” he said. “As to any anxiety, we believe it is not going to be easy but we are going to give our best.”A win will certainly lift Ghana above their Thursday opponent who currently top Group B while a defeat will spell doom for the Black Stars who are one of the favourites to win the competition.last_img read more

Barca will make late call on Iniesta before Chelsea – Valverde

first_imgBarcelona, Spain | AFP | Barcelona will make a late decision on whether captain Andres Iniesta is fit to face Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday, coach Ernesto Valverde has confirmed.Iniesta sustained a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid on March 4 but the midfielder took part in a light training session on Monday ahead of the last-16 second leg at the Camp Nou. The first leg finished 1-1.“It’s clear when a match like this arrives, a player tends to risk,” Valverde said on Tuesday.“What we have to decide is whether the risk is excessive.”Iniesta could be replaced by Paulinho in the starting line-up but the Spaniard’s absence would represent a major blow to his team’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.“We know what Andres brings to the team, not only on the pitch but as a captain,” Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said. “You give him the ball and he always knows what he has to do to create chances. Everything that he contributes is postive. He is training and we hope he plays.”Lionel Messi, however, is available again, after the Argentinian missed Saturday’s win at Malaga to attend the birth of his son, Ciro.“He will be fine,” Busquets said. “In fact he will be more motivated than what we are used to and physically he is going to be great, after having an extra game’s rest. I hope that this is perfect.”Busquets was also asked whether he thought Messi, who scored his team’s crucial away goal at Stamford Bridge, would ever leave Barcelona and move to the Premier League.“He is at home here,” Busquets said. “He has a great changing room, he is winning titles, has a great project, is winning collective and individual awards.“In the end all these positive things are difficult to find elsewhere, so the Premier League is a league that maybe you would like to play in but if you have to balance the positive and the negative out of here, it is very difficult to leave.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
