Coro Energy provides Tambak-2 operational update

first_imgAs previously reported, the Tambak-2 well is designed as an appraisal of the southern area of the Mako gas field and spudded on 4 October 2019 Image: The Tambak-2 well has been drilled to a total depth of 503m. Photo: Courtesy of Kristina Kasputienė from Pixabay. Coro Energy plc, the Southeast Asian focused upstream oil and gas company, is pleased to provide an operational update in relation to the drilling campaign in the Duyung Production Sharing Contract (“PSC”) in the West Natuna basin, offshore Indonesia, in which Coro holds a 15% interest.The Tambak-2 well has been drilled to a total depth of 503 metres true vertical depth sub-sea (“TVDSS”) and the coring programme, wireline logging and pressure surveys completed, confirming the well as a successfull appraisal of the Mako gas field. Operations are now focussed on an extensive Drill Stem Test (“DST”) of the main Mako reservoir.James Menzies, Coro Energy CEO commented: “Coro’s first well in Indonesia has delivered a great result, this significant step out from the Mako South-1 proves reservoir continuity over a very large areal extent. We believe the quality of the reservoir found will convert significant volume from the 3C to the 2C resource estimates for the field and add material value to the asset. Focus now switches to the next step in the campaign, we look forward to the results of the well testing programme and thereafter further appraisal and exploration drilling will follow which we see as further significant value catalysts.”As previously reported, the Tambak-2 well is designed as an appraisal of the southern area of the Mako gas field and spudded on 4 October 2019. An independent review by Gaffney Cline & Associates had previously ascribed gross 2C resources of 276 Bcf (48.78 MMboe) of recoverable dry gas in the Mako field with gross 3C resources of 392 Bcf (69.3 MMboe) representing additional field upside.Given the large step out from the Mako South-1 well, Coro management estimate that a successful appraisal could move 100 Bcf from the 3C category to the 2C category, representing very significant value addition.The next step in the drilling campaign is an extensive DST programme, which will take place over the coming days. Further announcements will be made, as appropriate. Coro remains fully funded for its share of costs associated with the drilling campaign. Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

City Enters Talks to Buy Coveted Land

first_imgBy DONALD WITTKOWSKIOcean City is making another attempt to acquire a coveted tract of land that Mayor Jay Gillian hopes to preserve as open space instead of having it developed into a housing project by the private owners.City Solicitor Dorothy McCrosson told City Council on Thursday night that a new round of negotiations has begun with property owner Klause Enterprises for the block of land bordered by Simpson and Haven avenues between 16th and 17th streets.“We’d like to move forward with acquisition as quickly as possible,” McCrosson said.Although the city would prefer to reach a deal to buy the property from Klause Enterprises, it is also keeping the option open to acquire it through condemnation if negotiations fail, McCrosson added.Gillian and City Council attempted to acquire the land from Klause Enterprises last year for $9 million, but the deal fell through when the community group Fairness In Taxes circulated a petition drive for a voter referendum to block the purchase.The mayor wants to preserve the land as open space to protect it from densely packed housing construction that would add to the town’s overdevelopment.McCrosson said the city has a “basic concept” for the property, which would include keeping it as open space and also using a portion for parking for the adjacent Ocean City Community Center.Mayor Jay Gillian, center, and City Solicitor Dorothy McCrosson speak to City Council.The mayor will soon announce details of a town hall meeting to gather public feedback from residents about what they would like to see done with the land if the city acquires it.“We hope we’ll get some more concrete ideas,” McCrosson said.Brothers Harry and Jerry Klause of Klause Enterprises plan to develop 21 single-family homes on the property. The project was granted final Ocean City planning board approval in October.The homes would replace a sprawling blacktop and concrete lot that served as the location for the former Perry-Egan Chevrolet dealership that once occupied the site. An old building that had served as the dealership’s showroom was demolished in November.Although 21 homes were approved by the planning board, one lot is a mere half-foot short for a 22nd house. Klause Enterprises intends to return before the board to seek approval to build the 22nd home, company representatives indicated.The 21-home project is “fully conforming” with local zoning and planning laws and no variances are needed for construction, Avery Teitler, attorney for Klause Enterprises, told the planning board members in October.Teitler said in an October interview that the Klauses are serious about developing the project, but he did not rule out the possibility of negotiating a deal for the property’s sale to the city.McCrosson did not mention any purchase price for the property Thursday night while updating City Council on the latest negotiations with Klause Enterprises.Local environmental advocate Donna Moore appears before Council holding signs that warn of the health hazards of pesticides containing chemicals.Also at the Council meeting, a city official announced that contractors will be required to use eco-friendly alternatives to pesticides and fertilizers on some city property as part of a new landscaping contract for parks, playgrounds and other public areas.The city’s landscaping contract will go out to bid in January for 32 public areas scattered throughout town. Eight of those sites will be opened up for eco-friendly “organic” landscaping bids, City Business Administrator George Savastano told Council.The city’s decision to use eco-friendly landscaping on some public property follows months of urging by local environmental advocate Donna Moore. She frequently appears before the governing body to talk about the potential health hazards of pesticides and fertilizers containing toxic chemicals.Waving hand-written signs above her head that dramatize her warnings, Moore has been appealing to Council to have the city’s landscaping contractors use environmentally friendly methods to help protect humans, animals, marine life and the water supply.Moore was present – along with her signs – during Thursday’s meeting when Savastano made his announcement. She said she was encouraged by the city’s move toward organic landscaping, but indicated she would like to see eco-friendly methods used for all public property to create a “healthier family island.”“Groundwater contamination is a problem with all of these pesticides,” she said in public remarks to Council.For the past several months, the city has been using the grounds of the Bayside Center as a test area that is free of pesticides and fertilizer. Ocean City operates the three-story Bayside Center at 520 Bay Avenue as a combination museum, community center and nature center through a long-term lease with Cape May County, the building’s owner. It is a popular tourist attraction that features sprawling green grounds and a bayside marina.City Council tables a proposed zoning ordinance that would allow grass block pavers for driveways.In another matter Thursday, Council tabled a proposed zoning ordinance that would permit grass paver blocks as an option for driveway construction.The city is looking for a more attractive alternative to concrete driveways. The addition of grass paver blocks for driveways would also help to reduce flooding by allowing water to drain faster.Following a lengthy discussion between the Council members, Gillian and McCrosson, as well as pointed questions from members of the public about a number of aspects of the ordinance, the measure was tabled until January.“We can keep making it better,” Gillian said of the proposed ordinance. “Let’s keep tweaking it.”To start the meeting, Council honored the state champion Ocean City High School girls soccer team. The players and coach Kelly Halliday joined with the Council members for photos and the reading of a city proclamation recognizing the team’s “outstanding dedication, determination and team spirit.”Ocean City topped Ramapo 3-0 in the Group III title game last month, while compiling a 24-1-1 record overall. It was the team’s 19th shutout of the season. Ocean City also had the state’s top-rated offense with 114 goals.City officials and members of the Ocean City High School girls soccer team celebrate the state championship. The city wants to acquire the site of a former car dealership and preserve it for open space before it is developed into a housing site.last_img read more

Greenhalgh’s raises money for charity in 10k race

first_imgA team from Greenhalgh’s Craft Bakery raised £2,300 for Cash for Kids, a charity for children who live under the poverty line, by completing the Manchester 10k race.The team of 23, including David Smart, Ray Lyons and Julie Thew, completed the race in various times and hit upon the idea after the start of a lunchtime jogging club.Production director Smart walked round the course in 2012, but decided to get into training for this year and completed it in one hour and 20 minutes.Smart said the company had already signed up for 2014 and added: “There are many benefits to the Manchester 10k race – the main one being that many very worthwhile charities benefit from much-needed funds. The other is many unfit people, me included, need a bit of a kicking to start getting back into shape and, hopefully, live a bit longer.“However when people from the same company come together for the benefit of others and complete an endurance [test], the company with great people also come together and are able to work through an endurance.”last_img read more

The importance of obtaining a trademark for your credit union

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Imagine your credit union is undergoing a rebrand. You’ve spent months selecting a new name, creating a new set of brand guidelines and even designing a gorgeous new logo. Everything has been going according to plan, and you can’t wait to unveil it to the public. When the day for your new brand to launch finally rolls around, to your horror, you discover that another credit union has a trademark on the name you selected. Cue “The Price is Right” losing horn.Trademarks exist to protect your credit union and serve as intellectual property. Trademarks are important to credit unions because they help protect your brand as expressed in recognizable images, signs, logos, designs or expressions. A well-defined brand, in turn, distinguishes products and services and builds loyalty among members. Think about the Nike “swoosh.” Not only is Nike’s name trademarked, but the symbol is, too. Both are recognizable, and both are impactful.It’s not necessarily a fast process to go from zero to Nike. You might find a name, logo or mark that’s “just so you” and it’s listed as available, but you’ll need to start the process as soon as possible so as to not lose it. This will minimize delays in the full deployment of your new brand as well as ensure that you are able to secure whatever it is you want to trademark before it’s too late. On average, it takes one year to complete the entire process.But why spend an entire year on this? Why is trademarking so important to your credit union?
