AWE Limited, operator of the L1/L2 joint venture with Origin Energy, said that it had commenced the flow testing program for the Waitsia-1 well to further appraise the conventional Waitsia gas discovery in the onshore Perth Basin, Western Australia.The testing program is designed to determine well deliverability from two conventional reservoir zones and to collect gas samples for compositional analysis, the company said in a statement.The first zone being flow tested is the deeper High Cliff Sandstone, where a 23.5 metre interval (3,382 – 3,405.5 metres) has been perforated.During the well clean-up operations, the well flowed gas at an average rate of 24.7 mmscf/d, constrained by tubing size, on a 60/64 inch choke at ~1330 psig flowing well head pressure over a 1 hour period.The Waitsia-1 well will now be shut in for a brief pressure build-up survey prior to a series of flow tests at various choke settings, rates and well head pressures.Following completion of testing on the High Cliff Sandstone, it is planned to set a plug to isolate the lower interval prior to commencing testing of the Kingia Sandstone. A similar well test program will be conducted on a 15 metre interval (3,333 – 3,348 metres) in the Kingia Formation.The testing program is expected to be completed by the end of November.The Waitsia-1 appraisal well is located on agricultural land approximately 3 km east of the Senecio-3 well and 17 km east of Dongara, Western Australia.

SPAIN: During a test run on the high speed line between Ourense and A Coruña on September 20, Development Minister José Blanco announced that RENFE would introduce Class 730 gauge-changing electro-diesel trainsets on services between Madrid and the northwestern region of Galicia in mid-2012.The trainsets would enable Madrid – Galicia journey time to be cut to less than 5 h, using high speed infrastructure between Madrid and Olmedo, the non-electrified 1 668 mm gauge route from Olmedo to Ourense, and the Ourense – A Coruña high speed line which is due to open on December 10. Under a €74m project managed by RENFE’s Integria rolling stock maintenance and assembly business, 15 Talgo/Bombardier Class 130 trainsets are being converted to the Class 730 by replacing the end trailer cars with two new cars each housing a 1 800 kW MTU 12V 4000 R43L diesel engine and traction alternator. The Class 730 has a top speed of 180 km/h in diesel mode, rising to 220 km/h under 3 kV DC and 250 km/h on 1 435 mm gauge high speed infrastructure. A total of seven Class 130s have so far entered the production line, with three now available for testing. Medium-distance services between Ourense and A Coruña are to be operated with four-car Class 121 trainsets, each offering a total of 281 seats.

However, now more than ever, people need to respect the sea and the coast to ensure the safety of themselves and their families.“Regardless of how well you know the coast, or how experienced you are in your chosen sport, the sea can still catch you out.“If you are visiting the beach with your children, have fun but stay safe. Make sure you have sight of your children at all times.“In addition, the Government guidelines around social distancing should continue to be observed by everyone in the UK.”If you get into trouble at sea or on the coast call 999 and ask for the Coastguard and we will come to your aid. But coronavirus hasn’t gone away and we all need to follow the rules.Remember your choices might put people, including yourself and frontline responders, at risk. Take extra care in these extraordinary times. #BeBeachSafe
Sharing is caring! NewsRegional US foreign relations to be discussed at CARICOM meeting by: Caribbean Media Corporation – July 3, 2017 Secretary-General of CARICOM, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque (file photo)ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC) — Community (CARICOM) leaders will be discussing CARICOM- US foreign relations at the 38th meeting of the conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community being held on July 4-6, 2017. The discussion comes in lieu of new foreign policies articulated by US president Donald Trump. In news release today in Grenada where the summit will be held, CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque said.“Our foreign affairs ministers will be having an encounter in the margins of the meeting here in Grenada this week with the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Thomas Alfred “Tom” Shannon Jr specifically to address CARICOM US relations and of course I am sure out foreign ministers will then report to the heads”.LaRocque said that the region is “very encouraged by the recent passage of the United States-Caribbean Strategic Engagement Act,” which is aimed at consolidating Washington’s engagement with the Caribbean.Under the United States-Caribbean Strategic Engagement Act, the US Secretary of State and the US Agency for International Development will devise a multi-year strategy on issues of concern to the region, such as security, energy, diplomacy and increased access to educational opportunities.“I am very much aware that the State Department has published the first strategy…so all of that will form the backdrop to the discussions”.But LaRocque said that the region continues to be “concerned about the cuts in funds to the State Department do not impact us in CARICOM.“We are currently receiving a significant amount of resources, individual member states and collectively under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), we trust that the partnership would continue and urge that the funding levels do not decrease. 22 Views no discussions Tweet Share Share Share
