Eni hits gas in UAE

first_imgItalian energy conglomerate Eni has made a new gas and condensate discovery in the Mahani exploration prospect located onshore in the Area B Concession of Sharjah (UAE).The concession was awarded to Eni in the first International Competitive Exploration Licensing Round conducted by the Petroleum Council of Sharjah, the company said in its statement.The Mahani-1 was drilled to a total of 14,597 feet measured depth. The well encountered a thick gas-bearing limestone reservoir in the Thamama of Lower Cretaceous age. The well was tested with flow rates up to 50 Mscf/d (million cubic feet per day) of lean gas and associated condensate, Eni said.The size of the discovery will be further assessed with additional appraisal drilling.The new phase of exploration in the area, which has already been explored in the past, is targeting complex subthrust Jurassic and Cretaceous plays of the Arabian carbonate platform in the inner thrust zone of the Oman Fold belt and requires accurate and sophisticated seismic imaging.Eni holds a 50 percent stake in the Concession Area B with SNOC, the National Oil Company of Sharjah, holding the remaining 50 percent and acting as Operator.The JV has already started the studies to fast track the exploitation of these new resources leveraging on the synergies with the existing facilities and infrastructure while finalizing the evaluation of the discovery.last_img read more

Swans make Pilkington bid – reports

first_img Press Association Republic of Ireland international Pilkington is out of contract in the summer and Norwich boss Chris Hughton has already brought in a wide player this month in the form of Newcastle’s Jonas Gutierrez. Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins had earlier this month denied an interest in Pilkington as the 25-year-old was injured, having been sidelined since November due to a hamstring problem. The former Huddersfield man returned to action as a substitute in the Canaries’ win over Hull last weekend and Swansea appear keen to bring him to the Liberty Stadium now he is back to fitness. The Swans have been looking to bring in a winger during the January transfer window, and had been linked with moves for Blackpool’s Tom Ince and Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha. Injuries have also seen the Welsh club’s resources stretched, with Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez and Roland Lamah all spending time on the sidelines in January. center_img Swansea have made a bid of £3million for Norwich winger Anthony Pilkington, according to reports.last_img read more

Liverpool Grabs a Draw at Old Trafford to Move to the…

first_imgA draw at the home of their fiercest rivals would usually be seen as mission accomplished for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but this has to go down as something of a wasted opportunity to get some daylight over nearest rivals Manchester City.Injuries to three midfielders meant United were forced to use all of their substitutes in a bizarre 25-minute period before half-time with one of them, Jesse Lingard, quickly being replaced himself.Liverpool did not escape unscathed, with Roberto Firmino only lasting until the half-hour mark, and without him his side struggled to pose any sort of threat in front of goal in what was was a typically intense encounter.The constant disruptions made for a disjointed first half and neither side could truly find their rhythm after the break – although the lack of quality did not affect the raucous atmosphere throughout.Klopp’s side failed to truly test United keeper David de Gea, with a shot from distance by Firmino’s replacement Daniel Sturridge their only shot on target in the 90 minutes.United had the best chance of the game, but Alisson brilliantly denied Lingard after he ran on to Romelu Lukaku’s pass and attempted to go around the Reds keeper.The hosts thought they had stolen victory near the end when Liverpool defender Joel Matip put through his own net from a free-kick, but Chris Smalling was adjudged offside in the build-up.With Manchester City in action in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, the result means Liverpool move a point ahead of them with 11 games to go.United dropped to fifth place, with Arsenal leap-frogging them with their win over Southampton.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram PREMIERSHIP…PREMIERSHIP…PREMIERSHIPLiverpool got the point they needed to return to the top of the Premier League but were left frustrated by their failure to break down a Manchester United side that was ravaged by injuries.last_img read more

In April 2019, he announced his comeback with a win in the 2019 Masters tournament, which was his fifth Masters win. It leaves him one shy of Jack Nicklaus’ record six Masters win, and three short of his record eighteen Major wins. His performance materialised when it mattered most and almost feels like a throwback to the 2000s. He now has three top-10s in his past four Majors.
