(Credit: Freeimages/QR9iudjz0) Neptune Energy has secured an exploration licence from the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) for the North West El Amal offshore concession.Located in the central part of the Gulf of Suez, approximately 42km south of Ras Gharib and 105km north of Hurghada, the North West El Amal Offshore concession is spread over an area of 365km².Neptune CEO Jim House said: “Our strategy is to invest and grow our presence in Egypt which is an important market for Neptune. We are committed to strengthening our presence in North Africa through exploration and production activities.“This is another important step for Neptune in the region and we’re pleased to build on our strong relationships with our partners and with the Ministry.”Neptune to drill one exploration well in phase oneUpon acquiring 100km² of 3D seismic data, Neptune plans to drill one exploration well in the first phase of the project followed by two more wells in phase two.Neptune Egypt managing director Gamal Kassem said: “The Gulf of Suez provides many promising prospects and we look forward to working closely with EGPC to grow Neptune’s business in Egypt.”In December 2019, Neptune Energy subsidiary Neptune Energy East Sepinggan purchased a 20% interest in the East Sepinggan area production sharing contract (PSC) located offshore Indonesia from Italian oil and gas company Eni.The deal also involved the acquisition of a 30% stake in the East Ganal production sharing contract (PSC) located offshore Indonesia by Neptune Energy from Eni.Eni will continue to serve as the operator of the East Sepinggan area with 65% interest while PT Pertamina Hulu Energi East Sepinggan and Neptune Energy East Sepinggan will own 15% and 20% stakes respectively.Located offshore East Kalimantan in Indonesia, the East Sepinggan area includes Merakes development and the Merakes East gas discovery.The Merakes field project involves drilling and construction of six subsea wells in 1,500m water depth. It is being developed as a subsea tie-back to the Jangkrik floating production unit.last_img read more

DOH backpedals: PH still on first wave of COVID-19 outbreak

Posted on by

first_imgRoque apologized for the confusion as he admitted that Duque did not inform President Rodrigo Duterte about his interpretation regarding a second wave of infections.“Nagpapaumanhin po kami kung kayo ay naalarma pero ang katunayan po ang siyensya naman po at importante ang pagbasa sa mga waves para alam natin ang gagawin na response,” Roque said.Duque said during a Senate inquiry on Wednesday that the COVID-19 situation that the country is already experiencing the second wave of COVID-19 cases, following the first wave in January that was composed of three Chinese nationals.He warned that a third wave of COVID-19 transmission would be the “worst case scenario” for Metro Manila if it will be placed under general community quarantine without enough testing.Aside from Roque, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea and Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año have also expressed opposition with Duque’s interpretation./PN Dr. Beverly Ho, director of the DOH Promotion and Communications Service, conveyed the agency’s apology following the confusion caused by the statement of Duque to the senators in a Senate hearing on Wednesday. “Tayo po ngayon ay nasa first wave,” Roque said in a virtual press conference. “Napakaliit naman ng tatlong kaso para maging isang wave. Sabihin nating hindi siya nagkamali, pero nagkaroon ng ibang opinyon.” Duque’s interpretation was supported by epidemiologist John Wong, a member of the sub-technical working group on data analytics of the Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19. His analysis, however, was contested by many, including Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, who said earlier yesterday that the first three cases of COVID-19 in the country last January cannot be considered a wave. The Philippines is still in the first wave of the COVID-19 outbreak, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said Thursday, refuting Health Secretary Francisco Duque III.

Blast Your Way to Evolutionary Progress

Posted on by

first_imgThe cartoony slogan “Evolve or perish” garnered support from a new story about evolution.  Dave Mosher on Live Science shamelessly titled his article “Catastrophic impacts made life flourish,” describing the theory by Birger Schmitz [U of Lund, Sweden] that the Ordovician extinction was caused by a meteor impact.  Out of the wreckage, a plethora of new life emerged, he thinks.  Don’t tell that to students: “If you push an ecosystem too hard, you’ll destroy it,” he said.  “But for the organisms living on Earth at the time, [the environment] pushed them to adapt and fill new niches.  It’s like at the university: I tell my students all the time that if we don’t push you, you don’t evolve.”Whoops; too late.  For the equivocation of confusing random mutation and natural selection with purpose-driven, goal-seeking, hopefully-intelligent study, Schmitz easily wins Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week.Your evolutionary biologists at work.  No further comment necessary. (Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Cold Dinosaurs Resembled Warm Dinosaurs

Posted on by

first_imgCold dinosaurs were just like warm dinosaurs, scientists have found.  Species living in the Antarctic, with up to six months of winter darkness, show no major differences in bone structure than those who lived in temperate climates.  This was a surprise that falsified earlier studies.  Whatever adaptations the high-latitude dinosaurs had did not show up in their bone structure. Holly Woodward, Montana State doctoral candidate, examined bone tissues from Australian dinosaur fossils that were thought to reside within the Antarctic Circle when the creatures lived.  The bones of the dog-sized ornithopods and theropods studied showed annual growth rings, like those of temperate-climate dinosaurs, but no evidence of hibernation.  “If we were trying to find evidence of dinosaurs doing something much different physiologically, we would expect it to be found in dinosaurs from an extreme environment such as the South Pole,” she said. “But based on bone tissues, dinosaurs living within the Antarctic Circle were physiologically similar to dinosaurs living everywhere else” (source: PhysOrg).  The paper by Woodward and colleagues was published in PLoS One.1 Well-known dinosaur researcher Jack Horner commented, “I think the most important finding is that polar dinosaurs don’t seem to be any different than any other dinosaurs in respect to how their bones grew.”  Woodward found a way to credit the unexpected finding to evolution: “This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early dinosaurs, or even the ancestors of dinosaurs, evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.”  See also the 03/29/2004 entry. Update 08/09/2011: PhysOrg reported the discovery of multiple trackways of polar dinosaurs in Victoria, Australia.  The tracks were found in a flood plain.  According to the article, this indicates it was “period of pronounced global warming, about 105 million years ago.” 1. Woodward, Rich, Chinsamy and Vickers-Rich, “Growth Dynamics of Australia’s Polar Dinosaurs,” PLoS ONE 6(8): e23339. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0023339. Let’s correct that last sentence:  This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early evolutionists, even the Father of evolutionary theory, came up with a plot line that allowed an entire group of scientists to successfully exploit a multitude of contradictory data for 150 years. The millions of years are fiction.  Wouldn’t dinosaurs living near the South Pole for millions of years develop some spectacular changes?  Wouldn’t they show a gradation in features from temperate to antarctic latitudes?  They didn’t.  Evolution wins anyway.  A neutral observer might think creationists could score a point here, that the pre-Flood climate was more uniform, but no; evolutionists have a wild card: the ability to invoke miracle talk.  From the very start, Woodward tells us, dinosaurs “evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.” Yes, children; dinosaurs evolved their own physiology.  They got together and had an engineering session.  They reasoned together, croaking that if they would just develop certain features of their bones and musculature and other systems, they could wander all over the earth and thrive for millions of years.  And you, too, children, can follow their example.  Just DON’T call it INTELLIGENT DESIGN!  That is forbidden!  Now, go out and evolve yourselves.  Pick your mutations very carefully with your eyes blindfolded and your ears covered up.  If you win the lottery, you can live at the Sahara or Antarctica without changing clothes.  Good luck!(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

IBM’s Project Vulcan: The Next Generation of Lotus Notes and a Rival To Google Wave

Posted on by

first_imgRelated Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise#news#Products Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… alex williamscenter_img It’s kind of hilarious that William Shatner opened the IBM Lotusphere event today, especially now that IBM is launching Project Vulcan.As one blogger asked: “You could not get Leonard Nimoy?” This is a geek dream come true: a full-on collaboration environment with an open API and a name right out of Star Trek fame.Project Vulcan is catching some attention here at IBM’s annual Lotusphere event in Orlando. It isn’t set for developer release until the second half of this year, but its potential as an all-encompassing cloud-based collaboration service is causing many to compare it to Google Wave.Project Vulcan is being described as the next generation of Lotus Notes. It’s an aggregation or federation of email, calendars, profiles, to do lists and social analytics all in one place. It’s designed to filter out noise from real-time conversations, make recommendations and provide relevant content.Sounds a lot like Google Wave. Here’s how IBM’s Ed Brill describes the Project Vulcan concept:“IBM Project Vulcan is not a brand-new effort. It builds on the existing capabilities, and represents the future versions of, the IBM Lotus product portfolio – including Notes. One of its key themes is social analytics and business analytics combined and applied to industry-specific scenarios – making collaboration more focused and relevant. The vision of Project Vulcan intends to deliver collaboration across company boundaries; make it easy to deploy the technology; and include developer-friendly services and APIs.” IBM is looking like it has its act together in the collaboration space. Project Vulcan is being developed out of LotusLive Labs, the new R&D pipeline for cloud-based collaboration.The lab is developing collaboration services that are being previewed here this week at the Lotusphere conference. These include:Slide Library: A collaborative way to build and share presentations.Collaborative Recorded Meetings: A service that records and transcribes meeting presentations and audio/video for searching and tagging.Event Map: An interactive way to visualize and interact with conference schedules.Project Vulcan fits right into the future of enterprise collaboration. Its Web-oriented architecture and open APIs give it a foundation that will be well suited to how the enterprise will function in the years ahead. Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… We think Project Vulcan looks pretty exciting. It’s being built with the right foundation, as a platform of loosely coupled systems. As Brill says:“This makes sense in an increasingly-expected hybrid environment, and will simplify deployment and adoption of collaboration and productivity within your organization. Web services, xPages, HTML5, RESTful APIs, will all be tools in pushing Project Vulcan forward.”last_img read more
