Equinor expects third capacity increase for Johan Sverdrup project

first_imgThe North Sea project is expected to produce an additional nearly 100,000 barrels per day Daily production from the Johan Sverdrup field expected to increase by nearly 100,000 barrels by mid-2021. (Credit: Equinor ASA) Equinor has announced that the Johan Sverdrup project in the Norwegian North Sea is expected to see a third capacity increase.Upon the expected increase, the project will be able to produce up to 535,000 barrels of oil per day by the middle of this year.According to the Norwegian oil and gas firm, the project will be producing nearly 100,000 barrels per day more than that was estimated during the project’s start-up in October 2019.The third capacity increase will be subject to water-injection, which is planned to be taken up by the project partners for this year.Equinor alongside its partners is said to have tested the plant capacity in November 2020 to verify a potential rise in production from the Johan Sverdrup field.As part of this, rates up to 535,000 barrels of oil were tested per day, said the company.Equinor Johan Sverdrup operations vice president Rune Nedregaard said: “This increase is possible because the field production has been very good and stable from day one, and the wells have produced even better than expected.”Last year, at the time of its inauguration, Equinor said that the project had been ramped up to produce more than 300,000 barrels per day. In November 2020, the company reported the field to be producing around 470,000 barrels per day.Estimated to hold recoverable reserves of 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent in place, the Johan Sverdrup field has been developed in two phases. Production from the second phase is expected to begin from the fourth quarter of next year.The Johan Sverdrup field has a power-from-shore solution in place that is expected to meet the project’s electricity demands for more than 50 years.Equinor is the operator of the field with 42.6% stake. Its partners include Lundin Energy Norway (20%), Petoro (17.36%), Aker BP (11.57%), and Total (8.44%).last_img read more

Cape May County Bans Hotel Stays, Short-Term Rentals

first_imgCape May County officials announce 14 of the 20 deaths were of elderly in facilities. The Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders voted on Tuesday that all hotels, motels, guest houses and other transient, seasonal and short-term rental businesses are prohibited from lodging any new transient guest or seasonal tenant effective immediately.The board decided that it would continue to monitor the situation to reopen these businesses as soon as it is safe to do so.The term “transient guest or seasonal tenant” as described by Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order does not include: “individuals housed as a part of state-directed non-congregate shelter initiative, individuals taking temporary residence supported by federal, state, or local emergency and/or other housing assistance, or healthcare workers taking temporary residence.”The resolution also does not require the eviction of any transient guest or seasonal tenant presently lodged in such a location prior to the resolution being passed.The goal is to create one uniform policy for the entire county so there isn’t confusion among visitors regarding which towns are open and which ones are closed in the immediacy of the current health emergency in New Jersey.The county wants to make it clear that the resolution does not stop businesses from taking reservations or preparing the property for reopening, but speaks to the fluid nature of the situation, where no definite date is known.“This is a necessary step and we are glad the governor recognized our position, which I was the first to voice weeks ago,” Freeholder Director Gerald M. Thornton said in a press release. “We don’t need visitors at this time. We must do everything we can to flatten the curve. The more we discourage people from traveling at this time it will help eliminate the spread of COVID-19. When we can ensure it is safe, I will be the first one to welcome tourists will open arms.”Thornton and Cape May County Administrator Elizabeth Bozzelli have been in daily contact with Gov. Murphy’s office for the past month.Those discussions have allowed them to express the concerns of the elected officials and the community.Freeholder Jeffrey Pierson, who is the liaison to the Cape May County Health Department, has been in daily contact with Thornton and Bozzelli as well, along with Health Department Officer Kevin Thomas and Cape May County Office of Emergency Management Director Marty Pagliughi.“This is not a decision we want to make but one we have to make,” Pierson said. “We are doing everything we can do to limit sickness and loss of life now and hopefully preserve some of the summer economic activity going forward. But the time to act is now.”last_img read more

Increasing odds for survival

first_imgA duo of drugs, each targeting a prime survival strategy of tumors, can be safely administered and is potentially more effective than either drug alone for advanced, inoperable melanomas, according to a phase 1 clinical trial led by Harvard investigators at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.The findings were presented in an oral session at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology on June 4.The drugs — ipilimumab and bevacizumab — are both monoclonal antibodies, intensified formulations of natural disease-fighting proteins. Ipilimumab spurs the immune system to attack diseased cells, including tumor cells. Bevacizumab, also known by the trade name Avastin, blocks the growth of blood vessels that provide tumors with nourishment. Ipilimumab has extended the lives of metastatic melanoma patients in previous clinical trials, and bevacizumab is often used to treat tumors of the colon, lung, and kidney.The trial involved 22 patients with metatastic melanoma that was not treatable by surgery.F. Stephen Hodi, the study’s lead author and director of the melanoma treatment center at Dana-Farber, said the trial is the first to explore whether the two agents enhance each other’s effectiveness. Most of the participants didn’t experience serious adverse side effects, although some did experience inflammation of artery walls, the liver, thyroid gland, colon, or uvea (the middle layer of the eye).  Five patients required steroid treatment for these problems and were removed from the trial.Positron emission tomography (PET) scans showed a prompt immune system response to many of the melanoma tumors, and computed tomography (CT) scans showed decreased blood flow to the tumors. Eight of the participants had partial responses — showing some tumor shrinkage — to the dual treatment, and six had stable disease. All the responses lasted at least six months. Biopsies performed after the treatment showed a more vigorous immune system response than would be expected with ipilimumab alone.“Our findings indicate that ipilimumab and bevacizumab can be safely administered with careful management of side effects,” said Hodi, who is also an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “The results of lab tests suggest that the two agents may work synergistically, with 14 of 21 evaluable patients experiencing a clinical benefit. This approach merits exploration in further clinical trials.”Funding for the trial was provided by grants from the Melanoma Research Alliance and National Institutes of Health.The other co-authors of the study are Philip Friedlander, Annick Van den Abbeele, Nageatte Ibrahim, Xinqi Wu, Jun Zhou, Anita Giobbie-Hurder, Travis Hollmann, Sara Russell, Pamela Dipiro, and Jeffrey Yap of Dana-Farber; George Murphy and David McDermott of Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Michael Atkins of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center; and Donald Lawrence of Massachusetts General Hospital, all Harvard-affiliated.last_img read more

NCUA’s culture council gets underway

first_img The NCUA’s new Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion Council – which was announced at the agency’s first Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Summit in November – officially launched last week. The council’s first task is to conduct an agency-wide survey to examine its current organizational culture and identify improvement areas.“For the NCUA to effectively carry out its mission, every staff member should be respected, and diversity and inclusion should be truly fostered,” said NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood during the council’s kick-off event Friday. “All of NCUA’s employees should come to work knowing that all of us, directly or indirectly, can improve the lives of hard-working credit union members in ways both big and small. I know this is a mission that makes me excited to come to work every day because we are responsible for protecting the safety and soundness of America’s credit union system.”Also in his remarks, Hood outlined his expectations for the council and the agency as a whole as they work to ensure a welcoming environment and inclusive culture.Credit unions continue to lead the charge as the NCUA and lawmakers work toward greater diversity in the financial services industry and NAFCU consistently works to ensure credit union can meet the needs of all members in their communities, supporting the NCUA’s efforts to modernize field of membership rules. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrcenter_img NCUA headquarterslast_img read more
