Total plans $5 billion in asset sales as second quarter profit slips on lower oil prices

first_imgFrench oil and gas company Total posted a 26% drop in 2Q net profit as a result of lower oil and gas prices. Total has said it plans to sell about $5 billion worth of assets, mostly from its Exploration & Production business.Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total. Source: Wikimedia; Author: Jérémy Barande – under the CC BY-SA 2.0 licenseThe company on Thursday posted adjusted net profit of $2.9 billion, a 19% decrease from the adjusted net profit of $3.6 billion in the same period last year.Total’s net income was $2.8 billion in 2Q 2019, a 26% decrease compared to 2Q 2018 and net income of $3.7 billion.Hydrocarbon production was 2,957 kboe/d in 2Q 2019, an increase of 9% compared to 2Q 2018 due to start-up and ramp-up of new projects, offset by natural decline and maintenance.Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO, Patrick Pouyanné, said: “Markets remained volatile with Brent averaging $69/b in the second quarter, an increase of 9% compared to the previous quarter, but natural gas prices were down 36% in Europe and 26% in Asia. In this context, with a slight increase in production to 2.96 Mboe/d, adjusted net income increased by 5% compared to the previous quarter to 2.9 B$, and the return on equity remained above 11%.”“Exploration & Production benefited from the higher Brent with a 15% increase in operating cash flow before working capital changes.”He added: “In signing an agreement with Occidental to acquire Anadarko’s assets in Africa, the Group is preparing for its future and capitalizing on its strengths. In Mozambique, it leverages its expertise in LNG, in Ghana, the deep offshore and, in Algeria, its historic presence. The Group continues to grow in LNG with the signing of a sales contract with the Chinese company Guanghui, the takeover of Toshiba’s LNG portfolio and the start-up of Cameron LNG in the United States.“This strategy is complemented by the divestment of high-breakeven assets, such as the recent sale of mature assets in the UK North Sea. This active portfolio management policy will continue with the sale of 5 B$ of assets over the 2019-20 period, the majority coming from Exploration & Production.”Since the start of the third quarter 2019, Brent has traded above $60/b in a context of renewed OPEC+ quotas and uncertainties about the evolution of production in Libya, Venezuela and Iran. According to Total, the environment remains volatile, with uncertainty about hydrocarbon demand growth related to the outlook for global economic growth.The Group maintains its spending discipline in 2019 with an organic investment target of around $14 billion and an average production cost of $5.5/boe. The organic pre-dividend cash flow breakeven will remain below $30/b.Production growth should exceed 9% in 2019, thanks to the ramp-up of projects started in 2018 and the start-­ups in the first half 2019 of Kaombo Sul in Angola and Culzean in the UK North Sea, as well as the upcoming Johan Sverdrup in Norway and lara 1 in Brazil.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

Liverpool secure Toure signing

first_img Press Association The Reds boss has stressed he is keen to get his business done as early as possible to avoid the sort of problems which arose last summer. Rodgers loaned striker Andy Carroll to West Ham the day before the August deadline in the belief he would be signing Clint Dempsey. But the move collapsed after owners Fenway Sports Group baulked at Fulham’s asking price and the United States international moved to Tottenham instead. But with Toure approaching free agent status it was a relatively straightforward deal to complete. The 32-year-old’s vast wealth of Premier League experience, having joined Arsenal in 2002 before moving to City, may prove invaluable. With the futures of Martin Skrtel, who lost his place to Carragher in the second half of the campaign, and Sebastian Coates open to question, further additions are required in the back four. Top of Rodgers’ list appears to be Schalke’s 21-year-old centre-back Kyriakos Papadopoulos with Sporting Lisbon’s Tiago Ilori also on the list. The retirement of Jamie Carragher at the end of the season after 737 matches left a huge void to be filled and, while the Ivory Coast international may only be a stop-gap, he fulfils a need for the Reds boss. Toure, who will join Liverpool on July 1 once his contract expires at the Etihad Stadium, will provide important back-up and Rodgers will hope he can ease the transition to a post-Carragher era. center_img Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has begun his summer restrengthening by signing Manchester City’s Kolo Toure to add much-needed experience to his defence.last_img read more

All-round Phillip puts Red Force in driver’s seat

first_img(CMC) – Anderson Phillip’s telling all-round effort and Jyd Goolie’s maiden first-class hundred deflated Windward Islands Volcanoes and put Trinidad and Tobago Red Force on course for their second straight win of the Regional Four-Day Championship here yesterday.The 23-year-old fast bowler snatched four for 53 to send Volcanoes tumbling for 173 in their first innings, in reply to Red Force’s massive 409 all out, on the second day of the eighth-round encounter at Brian Lara Stadium.Phillip had earlier struck a cavalier 31-ball unbeaten 36 and featured in a critical last-wicket stand of 59 with the 22-year-old Goolie (128) as Red Force, resuming on their overnight 298 for five, fought back after losing a cluster of wickets.Following on by 236 runs, Volcanoes reached the close on four without loss in their second innings, and now face a difficult penultimate third day today.The visitors had the better of the early exchanges when they grabbed four wickets for 34 runs at the start, to reduce Red Force to 345 for nine.Left-arm pacer Preston McSween, who ended with five for 60 to notch his second five-wicket haul in as many matches, removed Imran Khan in the day’s fifth over after Red Force captain had added just four runs to his overnight 80.The next three wickets went down cheaply but Goolie, who resumed the day on 75, completed his maiden first-class hundred and along with Phillip, frustrated Volcanoes.Goolie, in his fourth first-class outing, struck 16 fours and a six off 206 deliveries in just over 5-¼ hours while Phillip belted four fours and a six in an entertaining 41-minute stay.In reply, Volcanoes got a top score of 67 from veteran opener Devon Smith while wicketkeeper Emmanuel Stewart chipped in with 30 and Keron Cotty, 28, but the last six wickets fell for 55 runs, with Kavem Hodge unable to bat because of injury.Smith, who punched half-dozen fours and two sixes off 117 balls in nearly three hours, put on 48 for the first wicket with Kimani Melius (20) before three wickets tumbled for eight runs.Stewart arrived to add 62 for the fourth with Smith but once the stand was broken, the innings fell apart quickly, as leg-spinner Imran Khan (2-6) and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (2-27) got in on the act.last_img read more

Lakers admit challenges in handling Kobe Bryant’s farewell tour

first_imgKobe Bryant appeared ready to speak, so his teammates gathered around to soak in every word he said. Yet, Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. did not huddle up with his teammates because of a backdrop that uniquely defined the Lakers’ 2015-16 season. “There’s a camera guy moving me out of the way to get to Kobe,” Nance Jr. recalled, laughing. “It’s been an adjustment. But I just try to have fun with it.”As the Lakers finished with a franchise-worst 17-65 record, their challenges went beyond the 37-year-old Bryant delaying Father Time or fielding a roster that featured mostly toddlers when Bryant entered the NBA 20 years ago. The Lakers also navigated the tight-rope between embracing Bryant’s farewell tour without obstructing the team’s rebuilding process. “I wouldn’t do anything differently. He deserved everything he got,” Scott said of Bryant, who won five NBA titles and climbed to third place on the league’s all-time scoring list. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I thought we handled it extremely well.”Bryant’s teammates publicly embraced the festivities surrounding his final season. So much that many of them sought autographs from him after capping his career last week with a 60-point effort against Utah. Yet, Scott admitted it was a “possibility” that backdrop contributed to the Lakers’ season-long inconsistency. “Sometimes our guys were torn on how to play or when to do this or when to do that, because they were so into him being on the court,” Scott said. “When he was off the court then there was sometimes a battle of, ‘OK, who’s going to take over?’ instead of ‘Let’s play together.’”Bryant may have encouraged his teammates to play aggressive and even lobbied Scott later in the season to feature his young players more. Yet, Bryant still averaged 17.6 points on a career-low 35.8 percent clip, while taking a team-leading 16.9 shots per game. “You didn’t know what a lot of people were capable of because of the retirement. Next year you’ll get a better feel of what everybody is capable of, players, coaches, everybody,” Lakers rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell said. “That’s something we’ve been discussing throughout the year. It wasn’t something that recently came upon. But it’s also not an excuse.” With Bryant frequently missing practices and shootarounds to stay healthy, his teammates could only foster chemistry with him on gamedays. “He wasn’t always able to come to practice like he would do on a real team playing for something,” Lakers forward Metta World Peace said. “It was hard for them to reap the benefits of that year. Between that and still being young, next year will be a better year.”Given the circumstances, however, Bryant’s teammates gushed on how he at least planted the foundation for what they hope to become long and productive careers. Lakers second-year forward Julius Randle and rookie forward Anthony Brown grew up idolizing Bryant, so they peppered him with questions any chance they could. Beyond helping him with his play, Russell sounded grateful for Bryant’s support amid criticism for secretly recording a video that showed Nick Young admitting infidelities. “It was so small compared to his retirement and last game,” Russell said of his recorded video that went viral. “His success made me forget about a lot.”Yet, that success also explains why the Bryant’s teammates embraced his farewell tour, even if it coincided with having increased annoyance for cameramen and microphones.“It’s something,” Nance said, “I’ll always remember.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

NFL Combine invites 2020: List of participants, workout times & more

first_img ( More than 300 NFL Draft prospects have descended upon Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium this week for the 2020 NFL Combine.

Yet the Combine is a big deal to the players who were invited.While the on-field workouts scheduled for the end of the week will be the league’s TV ratings draw, the interviews draft prospects hold with teams will be just as if not more important as the 2020 NFL Draft approaches. The players who were invited to participate in the 2020 NFL Combine were notified last month after a vetting process by the event’s selection committee. The list of invites is made up of college football players in their final year of eligibility and underclassman who have declared for the 2020 NFL Draft.Below is the complete list of invites for the 2020 NFL Combine, plus the workout schedule for all position groups in Indianapolis.NFL MOCK DRAFT 2020:Patriots, Raiders, Cowboys go defense; Bucs, Chargers go QBNFL Combine invites 2020A total of 337 prospects were invited to the 2020 NFL Combine.

For many players, the drills are the least relevant portion of the week.A given prospect’s workout at the Combine comes after he has gone through orientation, interviews, measurements, a medical exam, more interviews, media obligations, more medical exams, a position coach interview, psychological testing, an NFLPA meeting, more interviews, the bench press and more psychological testing. This is technically a job interview, after all.Below is the complete player schedule for all four groups at the 2020 NFL Combine, courtesy of NFL Combine drillsFor now, the bench press remains in place as one of the customary workouts at the NFL Combine, meaning all players will go through the same seven general drills — 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle — in 2020.New this year, though, will be changes to a handful of position-specific drills with entertainment value in mind. (Again, the league is aiming for better TV ratings.) From Sports Illustrated’s Kalyn Kahler:”Roughly eight or nine position-specific drills have been cut from the workouts and replaced with the same number of new drills. The committee decided to add timing to some existing drills like the gauntlet, and the defensive backs’ W drill, in order to make the workouts more entertaining for fans tuning in to the NFL Network’s broadcast. …”Some of the new drills include a smoke route for quarterbacks and wide receivers. A smoke route is a short route, a one-step hitch that is popular in run pass option plays which are now a staple of NFL offenses. The smoke route is usually used on the backside of a run play as a bail out for the quarterback when the run look isn’t there. This drill will also be timed, from the quarterback’s hands to the receiver’s hands.”Per Kahler’s report, there will also be new drills for tight ends and linemen, including a figure eight pass-rush drill for D-linemen.The timed “Figure 8” drill will be a new addition for DL at the NFL Scouting Combine.Prospects are to stay as close to the hoop as possible. There’s an object on the ground for them to grab while staying on the move, which shows their bend/flexibility.Here’s an example:— Jordan Reid (@JReidNFL) February 20, 2020last_img read more
