BG Group strikes oil in Brazil

first_img BRITISH oil and gas firm BG Group said yesterday it found oil to the west of the Tupi discovery off the coast of Brazil, giving it further confidence in its recently upgraded resource estimates for its Brazilian oil fields.BG said yesterday that initial results from the well, drilled 11 kilometres from the first Tupi well near the Rio De Janeiro state coast, were encouraging enough to prompt BG and its partners to consider allocating another Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel to Tupi.Tupi, in which BG has a 25 per cent stake, is the world’s second largest oil discovery of the last decade and so far has one FPSO, which started production in October, and another one due to begin in 2013. BG in November lifted estimates for total recoverable resources from Tupi and two other fields in Brazil by 34 per cent, raising its net resources from offshore Brazil to 2.8bn barrels of oil equivalent.“The information obtained from this well adds further certainty to our recoverable reserve and resource estimates for the Tupi field,” the company said in a statement.Further tests would now be carried out on the well, BG said, adding that it had found light oil in a 90 metre zone. The news follows a similar large find off the coast of China, which BG announced on Wednesday. The company found oil-bearing sands in the South China Sea, which will now be tested for viable hydrocarbons alongside a second well in the region. Shares in BG, which have risen 20 per cent in the last three months, closed 0.5 per cent higher at 1,307p yesterday. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem Thursday 16 December 2010 7:46 pm whatsapp BG Group strikes oil in Brazil center_img Show Comments ▼ Share Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The S&P and Nasdaq wavered in volatile late-day action as Mubarak began a speech in response to the weeks of civilian protests. Earlier in the day, as media reports spread that Mubarak might resign, equities rebounded off early lows sparked by the disappointment over Cisco. The Van Eck Market Vectors exchange-traded fund ended up 0.45 per cent, cutting gains late when it appeared that Mubarak was not stepping down. Previously, the fund had risen as much as 5.8 per cent.More than two weeks of civilian unrest in Egypt have created some uneasiness among global investors on fears that political instability could spread through the region and impact commodities. Mubarak’s move, however, failed to meet the demands of enraged protesters that he step down immediately.Volume on Wall Street was stronger than in recent days, which had seen some of the thinnest trade of the year. But with a total of about 8.15bn shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, volume was still below last year’s daily average of 8.47bn. “Egypt stopped us from dropping lower, but the low volume means that people are skeptical of the climb we’ve had,” said Michael Nasto, senior trader at US Global Investors in San Antonio, Texas. Cisco shares tumbled 14 per cent to $18.92 on heavy volume a day after the outlook, but shares in its chief competitors surged. The Dow Jones industrial average was down 10.60 points, or 0.09 per cent, at 12,229.29. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was up 0.99 points, or 0.07 per cent, at 1,321.87. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 1.38 points, or 0.05 per cent, at 2,790.45. Share Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

Four operators agree ATR turnover-based streaming deals

All content is delivered to partners via ATR’s proprietary streaming platform, Sport Mediastream.“We are delighted to have concluded these four important agreements and look forward to working closely with our partners to maximise betting turnover on our racing product,” ATR chief executive Matthew Imi commented.The announcement follows the news last week that Betfred had become the first operator to sign up for a streaming deal under the new model.It also suggests growing acceptance of the turnover-based model. It has been widely reported that bookmakers are concerned that margins will be eroded by this new model, or even lead to a coverage blackout should some refuse to work with ATR under the new terms.The industry’s main argument against the structure is that the erosion in margins could force the betting industry to drop promotions such as best odds guarantees, in turn leading to a decline in customer spend and lower revenue for both the tracks and operators.

Aston Martin (LSE:AML) shares haven’t been fast off the grid in 2021. However a lot of investors still hope that the share price of the legendary sports and luxury car manufacturer will start accelerating soon. Although I think the shares could reach £20 in 2021, I don’t plan to invest in Aston Martin shares. Here’s why.Aston Martin shares have disappointedLooking at the current price, the shares appear to be close to their 2018 flotation figure of £19. But in fact, the shares fell sharply in the years after the company floated. The decline was so precipitous that last month there was what’s known as a reverse share split. Every 20 shares were combined into one share. That’s why the price looks similar to the flotation price. Closer examination shows that the shares have lost over 90% of their value since flotation!5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Past performance isn’t necessarily a guide to future returns, however. The company changed its management last year, with a well-regarded new chief executive now at the helm. It also has an executive chairman who has put a lot of his own money into the firm. Clearly, the current management team has the will to make Aston Martin flourish. It may also have the capability to do so, with plenty of motor industry experience.However, just because a business does well doesn’t necessarily mean that its shareholders will do well. Aston Martin spent a lot of time last year shoring up its finances. It raised over £1bn in debt, at a high interest rate. Even if the company does manage to turn around its car business, much of its profits will need to go towards servicing debt, I don’t expect shareholders will see much benefit.2021 prospects remain unclearAston Martin’s business has faced tough conditions for some time now. Meanwhile, the shares have moved around a fair bit. For example, they almost doubled in November and December. For a two-month period, that’s an impressive performance and I can understand why many investors wonder whether the company’s shares have further upside potential left in them.Instead of speculating though, I assess Aston Martin shares for their investment potential. The name will be more prominent through its association with Formula One racing. But what’s less clear is how well its cars are selling.  A lot’s riding on demand for its SUV model the DBX, which it launched last year. So far, sales data is limited.The new chief recently pledged to leave “no corner untouched” in an interview with the Financial Times. While that ambition could be a shot in the arm for the automaker, it could also signal ongoing disruption at the company that has struggled to find its feet as a listed company. Meanwhile, with its debt pile, I expect shareholders won’t be rewarded for a long time, even if the company is successful. With so many unknown factors, the company looks like a speculation, not an investment, to me. Aston Martin shares could well reach £20 in 2021, but equally they could tumble in price again. I’ll pass. Could Aston Martin shares reach £20 in 2021?

Ellos bendicen a nuestras congregaciones y comunidades inmensamente, y todos hemos aprendido de su gran amor por los demás y la evidencia de la bondad de Dios que ellos nos muestran.“Aún no hemos terminado. No terminaremos hasta que las leyes de toda la tierra y toda la iglesia de Dios reconozcan la dignidad de cada ser humano y la igualdad de todas las parejas fieles.

[La expresión] proviene de la Plegaria Eucarística C, que se encuentra en el Libro de Oración Común.Poco más abajo en la página, la oración continúa: “Nos hiciste soberanos de la creación. Mas nos volvimos contra ti, traicionando tu confianza, y también nos volvimos unos contra otros”.Durante los últimos 21 días, los episcopales han estado siendo partícipes de 30 Días de Acción, una campaña concebida e iniciada por la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera para comprometer a individuos y congregaciones en una conversación sobre el cambio climático. (La DFMS [Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society] es el nombre con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).La campaña, que comenzó con un foro en directo a través de la Internet el 24 de marzo, culmina el 22 de abril, Día de la Tierra. Los recursos y actividades de la campaña incluyen días de promoción, boletines informativos, relatos, sermones y excursiones al campo.Los 30 Días de Acción, así como la quinta de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, son un llamado a movilizarnos para recuperar esa confianza y juntarnos en comunidad para el cuidado de la creación.Como expresó con claridad en una reciente publicación de su blog, James Pickett, activista del cambio climático y joven adulto de la Diócesis de Massachusetts: a menos que los anglicanos y los episcopales tomen en serio la quinta de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, “Luchar por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida en la tierra”, las otras cuatro marcas son irrelevantes.“Si no atesoramos la creación, las otras marcas de la misión no pueden cumplirse”, escribió Pickett.No basta hablar del cambio climático y de los problemas de justicia que se le relacionan, según Pickett y otros; se trata de vivir las marcas y poner la fe en acción.El otoño pasado, Pickett y otros episcopales se unieron a más de 300.000 personas de todas partes del país y del mundo en las calles de Nueva York para la Movilización Climática de los Pueblos, la mayor manifestación de la historia en pro de tomar decisiones sobre el clima.Como se hizo evidente en las actividades y recursos incluidos y creados para la campaña de 30 días de duración, es imposible sostener una conversación sobre el cambio climático y no abordar los problemas de justicia social implícitos en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión.“Cuando la Iglesia Episcopal adoptó las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, me quedé sorprendida por la naturaleza práctica del lenguaje y por su invitación orientada hacia la acción”, dijo Bronwyn Clark Skov, ambientalista de toda la vida y funcionaria de la DFMS a cargo del ministerio de los jóvenes. “Me siento especialmente agradecida por la especificidad de la Quinta Marca de la Misión ‘Luchar por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y por el sostenimiento y la renovación de la vida en la tierra’”.“Podría argüirse que esta área del ministerio es un trasfondo del Pacto Bautismal, pero estas palabras más nuevas abren mayores posibilidades para imaginar nuestro papel como ciudadanos cristianos que cuidan de la tierra, nuestro hogar”, dijo ella. “Este es un maravilloso punto doctrinal cuando se interactúa con jóvenes y se debate cómo su identidad cristiana podría determinar las opciones que toman”.Skov, que es ambientalista desde que su padre la alentó a serlo, recordaba haber aprendido a reciclar desde temprano.“Recuerdo clasificar los periódicos para cuando pasaban a recogerlos una vez al mes. Me enseñaron a lavar las latas, a quitarle ambos extremos y aplastar cuidadosamente la lata sobre la alfombra del piso de la cocina, de manera que no estropeara el linóleo que estaba debajo del material tejido”, contaba. “Desde que me dediqué al ministerio de los jóvenes, menciono y afirmo este hábito de toda la vida e invito a los jóvenes a participar de mi compromiso de reducir, reciclar y reusar esos artículos que no son fácilmente biodegradables en un muladar. Esta conducta se ha convertido en parte de lo que soy, un pedazo de mi identidad personal”.Las Cinco Marcas de la Misión comienzan por abordar cómo los episcopales pueden llegar a ser mayordomos ambientales y a velar los unos por los otros en comunidad, en lugar de traicionar la tierra y de distanciarse unos de otros, como dice la plegaria eucarística.Los niños y los adolescentes se sienten particularmente potenciados por el lenguaje que se usa en las marcas, dijo Skov. Ella las usa de referencia como una manea de poner en práctica los votos que hacemos en el bautismo, e invita a los jóvenes a mencionar y a afirmar la manera en que ya ellos están viviendo algunas de las marcas.“La belleza de la quinta marca, conservar la tierra de manera deliberada, es un lugar donde podemos participar en nuestras comunidades en una asociación que trasciende las barreras denominacionales, religiosas y políticas”, dijo ella. “La misión y el ministerio en esta área [son] fáciles de abrazar con humanos de edad escolar en tanto aprenden acerca del medioambiente en el aula y luego pueden apreciar la intersección de su experiencia secular con sus valores como miembro de una comunidad de fe”.Más de 1.000 estudiantes de secundaria asistieron el año pasado al Evento de la Juventud Episcopal en Pensilvania, donde el cambio climático estuvo entre los asuntos que se discutieron y donde los jóvenes se convirtieron en agentes de la transformación.Los puntos de vista de los estadounidenses sobre el cambio climático varían de un estado a otro, de una ciudad a otra y a veces entre los miembros de una misma familia. El cambio climático es cada vez más un problema político que con frecuencia enfrenta a conservadores y liberales. Al mismo tiempo, las comunidades religiosas de un extremo a otro del espectro se han unido en el llamado a reducir las emisiones de carbón y a abordar el cambio climático como un problema moral. En una entrevista con The Guardian que se publicó el día del foro sobre la crisis del cambio climático en marzo, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori describió el cambio climático como un desafío moral que ya amenaza el sustento y la supervivencia de personas en el mundo en vías de desarrollo.“Es ciertamente un problema moral en lo que respecta a las repercusiones que ya tiene entre los más pobres y vulnerables del mundo”, afirmó. En todas partes, los episcopales están tomando ese desafío moral en serio, incluida su contribución a los 30 Días de Acción.Tal como la Rda. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, misionera para el cuidado de la creación de la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental, lo puso en un sermón escrito para el Domingo después de Pascua: “el cambio climático no es sólo un problema ‘ambiental’: es un problema de ‘civilización’. No se trata sólo de los osos polares , se trata de dónde nuestros nietos encontrarán agua potable. Se trata de cómo las sociedades manejarán las crecientes epidemias de enfermedades infecciosas, tales como el paludismo, el cólera y la fiebre del dengue. Se trata de adónde se irán multitudes de personas cuando la subida de los mares los expulse de sus casas o cuando las lluvias no caigan y los campos de cultivo se conviertan en polvaredas secas. Se trata de personas hambrientas y sedientas compitiendo por los escasos recursos y recurriendo a la violencia, a los disturbios civiles o a la ley marcial en la lucha para sobrevivir”.Materiales de formación centrados en el cuidado de la creaciónLa Oficina de Formación Cristiana de por Vida de la DFMS y otros episcopales, clérigos y laicos, activos en los problemas del cambio climático han compilado extensos materiales para una liturgia medioambiental, incluidos los 30 Días de Acción.“Las oficinas de formación han estado hablando acerca del cambio climático y del cuidado del medioambiente con los niños y sus familias durante años”, dijo la Rda. Shannon Kelly, misionera interina de la DFMS para los ministerios universitario y de jóvenes adultos.“Las oficinas de formación han estado hablando acerca del cambio climático y del cuidado del medioambiente con los niños y sus familias durante años”, dijo la Rda. Shannon Kelly, misionera interina de la DFMS para los ministerios universitario y de jóvenes adultos.“Los jóvenes encuentran el cuidado del medioambiente todos los días cuando hablan de reciclar, ‘superciclar’ y de conservación en sus escuelas, en el hogar y en la iglesia. Introducir este importante tema en la vida de la Iglesia y en los programas crea un espacio para que los niños y los adultos piensen, oren y experimenten que el cuidado del medioambiente es el cuidado de la creación de Dios”.Cindy Coe, becaria de Mayordomía Ambiental, trabaja en el huerto con estudiantes de la escuela episcopal de Knoxville.En Tennessee, explorar la naturaleza se ha convertido en un componente integral de aprender a leer.A principios de junio, la Diócesis de Tennessee Oriental ofrecerá un “Campamento de Lectura Knoxville” a los alumnos de tercer y cuarto grados que estén viviendo en la pobreza y esforzándose para aprender a leer. Como parte del programa, los niños, que provienen de zonas urbanas, harán por las tardes excursiones campestres, caminatas en zonas boscosas y trabajaran en huertos, dijo Cindy Coe, que pertenece al comité de planificación y trabaja en actividades extracurriculares por las tardes.“Todas estas actividades están orientadas a fomentar un sentido de conexión con el mundo natural y aprecio por él. La mejor manera de hacer esto es sacar los niños al campo, a explorar la naturaleza”, dijo Coe, que recibió el año pasado una beca de mayordomía ambiental de la DFMS.Gracias a la beca, Coe está esforzándose por crear la nueva generación de líderes.“Esto no es algo que pueda hacerse través de un ‘aprendizaje libresco’ solamente”, dijo ella.“Las actividades que estimulan a los niños a mirar atentamente los objetos naturales, a localizar actividades e identificar un lugar particular al aire libre son todos ellos medios eficaces de ayudar a los niños a vincularse con la naturaleza. Si un niño es capaz de crear un vínculo con la naturaleza, lo más probable es que el niño crecerá con una valoración del medioambiente y que cuidará del medioambiente cuando sea adulto”.Coe está trabajando en el desarrollo de nuevos materiales para introducir el cuidado de la creación a niños y jóvenes de la Iglesia Episcopal, a fin de usarlos en campamentos, escuelas y parroquias.Ella espera, dijo, que todos los programas de formación cristiana de la Iglesia Episcopal terminen por incluir algún aspecto de la mayordomía ambiental.En Virginia, Coe también está trabajando con el equipo de planificación de la iglesia episcopal Emanuel [Emmanuel] en Greenwood para diseñar un programa de escuela bíblica de vacaciones llamado “La tierra, nuestro hogar insular” basado en el cuidado de la creación y en la Quinta Marca de la Misión.La parroquia toma en serio las palabras “esta frágil tierra, nuestro hogar insular” de la Plegaria Eucarística C, afirmó Coe.“De manera que el concepto del cuidado de la creación tiene un significado especial para la parroquia”, añadió. “Cada día, los niños participarán del culto, oirán un relato basado en el cuidado de la creación y tomarán parte en juegos no competitivos concebidos para inculcar la mayordomía ambiental”.Las artes y las artesanías incluirán también la mayordomía ambiental, al facilitarles a los niños objetos para “superciclarlos” y convertirlos en nuevas creaciones, apuntó. “La nueva vida será un tema importante del campamento, relacionando los temas de reciclaje, creación de abono orgánico y horticultura con el relato cristiano de la resurrección y una nueva vida en Cristo”.En la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, donde el Rdo. Andrew K. Barnett ejerce la cátedra del Obispo para estudios medioambientales, los jóvenes aprenden a cuidar la creación aprendiendo a amarla.“Creo que no lucharemos para salvar algo que no amemos, por lo cual quiero decir que a fin de capacitar a las personas para cuidar de “esta frágil tierra nuestro hogar insular”, primeros tenemos que encontrar eso significativo y valioso de una manera profunda, y hablar sobre el tema realmente no basta”, dijo Barnett, antes del foro del 24 de marzo.“Por consiguiente le he dado una importante prioridad a llevar los niños al campo. De manera que hacemos estos retiros en medio de la naturaleza, en lugares como Big Sur, Lake López, Yosemite y la isla Catalina. Tenemos juegos, hacemos piragüismo, vamos de caminata y realizamos proyectos de servicio” dijo él.“A los niños les encanta, sencillamente les fascina. Se entusiasman porque están haciendo exactamente lo que necesitamos, que es la comunidad, la conexión y la referencia en esos lugares increíbles e impresionantes. De modo que uno no tiene que decir que esto es importante, que es hermoso, porque se capta de inmediato, lo percibes en tu ser”.Barnett es el capellán de la escuela episcopal de Campbell Hall en la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, donde el obispo J. Jon Bruno y la DFMS se asociaron para auspiciar el foro del 24 de marzo.Barnett le habla a los estudiantes acerca del cambio climático en términos rigurosos, incorporando datos de la investigación y la ciencia —sin exagerar, pero abordando la gravedad de la amenaza.“Los niños pueden manejar esa verdad. A ellos no les gustan las cosas edulcoradas. Prefieren [oír que] ‘éste va a ser el mayor desafío de nuestra generación’”, dijo Barnett. “Nuestra generación ha fracasado absolutamente en nuestro intento de reducir las emisiones [de carbono]. Hablamos mucho de ello, tenemos montones de reuniones, pero las emisiones siguen subiendo.“Si fracasamos en esta tarea, la mayoría de las otras tareas no importarán, porque el cambio climático afecta casi todo lo que es digno de atención y, después de la aniquilación nuclear, presenta la mayor amenaza para la humanidad que jamás hayamos conocido”.Nota de la redactora: Una versión anterior de este artículo atribuyó erróneamente la autoría de las palabras ‘esta frágil tierra, nuestro hogar insular”, que aparecen en la Plegaria Eucarística C.
