first_imgPublicly-listed oil and gas company PT Medco Energi Internasional has tapped into a new gas well in the aging South Natuna Sea Block B, located in the waters of the Riau archipelago.The company, through subsidiary Medco E&P, said on Monday the new Kaci-2 gas well, located 2,359 feet below the seafloor, would produce an estimated 13 million metric standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas once full production begins. Medco did not give a date.Read also: Indonesia aims to double gas production by 2030 with major projects in pipelineMedco’s new gas well will raise the block’s gas production by 7 percent after production reached 183 mmscfd as of this year’s first half, according to Upstream Oil and Gas Special Regulatory Taskforce (SKK Migas) data.The new gas well also aids the block’s transition into a gassier asset amid declining oil production, which dipped by 11 percent year-on-year to 16,286 barrels per day in 2019.“The success of drilling Kaci-2 opens opportunities for exploring new potential,” said Medco E&P president director Ronald Gunawan in a statement.The block’s transition reflects Indonesia’s own transition into a gassier economy. SKK Migas aims to double domestic gas production over the decade to 12,300 mmscfd by 2030, turning the country – once a global oil exporter – into a major gas exporter in Asia Pacific.Read also: Medco means business in South NatunaSKK Migas head Dwi Soetjipto said that Medco’s new gas well was “quite strategic” as, apart from helping raise domestic gas production, it also “strengthened Indonesia’s activity in the outermost regions.”Medco acquired the block from Japan’s Inpex Corp and the United States’ ConocoPhillips between 2016 and 2017. The acquisition included several gas infrastructures bringing the fuel into Malaysia and Singapore.Stocks of the company, traded at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) with the code MEDC, jumped 3.8 percent on Monday as the benchmark, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), gained 0.27 percent. The shares have lost more than 43 percent of their value so far this year.Topics :last_img read more


first_imgBefore the President decreed silk scarves are an acceptable alternative to face masks, Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, donned a different drape around her shoulders at the administration’s nightly press briefings.Since her appointment on February 26, Dr. Birx has been setting a silky fashion trend as part of the 22-person team that makes up the Coronavirus Task Force.Since her appointment on February 26, Dr. Birx has become the fashion favorite of the COVID task force and American’s can’t wait to see her “scarf du jour” artfully knotted around her shoulders.Just last month, Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a story in praise of her lovely foulards. And more recently, an Instagram account has appeared chronicling each of the pretty silk squares.The scarf account was created by Victoria Strout, a fashion-obsessed music marketing executive from Fort Worth.The account known as @deborahbirxscarves has a simple format. Each post is populated with a slideshow offering various vantage points onto one of the doctor’s many scarves. The captions are straightforward, providing the date of the scarf’s appearance and, if known, its label. “Me and a couple of friends would watch each press conference and talk about Dr. Birx’s latest scarf,” says Strout.“So one Sunday afternoon I thought, You know what, I’m just going to compile all the screenshots I’ve taken on Instagram.”So why does this all matter? Perhaps it’s because Dr. Birx’s affinity for scarves speaks to a collective nostalgia.FLOTUS Jackie Kennedy sported her babushka-style head wrappings on weekends in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. A typical Dr. Birx look consists of a prim dress, hosiery, and a waist-cinching belt; she ties the whole look together with a literal bow via her silken scarf which elegantly gives a nod to history.last_img read more

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University softball team has signed Abby Buie (Gardner, Kan.), Aryka Knoche (Little Canada, Minn.), Sarah Maddox (Henderson, Nev.) and Mandi Roemmich (West Des Moines, Iowa) to National Letters of Intent for the 2017 season, head coach Rich Calvert announced Thursday, Dec. 3. “We feel the most important aspect in the recruiting process is finding quality student-athletes that represent Drake softball both on and off the field,” Calvert said. “We’ve found that in this class that will have big shoes to fill replacing a strong senior class. What is great about these four newcomers is that they each can play numerous positions, which is a trademark of our program.” Buie is a versatile multi-sport athlete for Gardner Edgerton High School, where she plays basketball and runs track and field. Due to track and field and softball sharing the same spring high school season in Kansas, Buie hasn’t played softball for Gardner Edgerton but plays for the DeMarini Aces Gold softball club. She has medaled several times in the javelin and pole vault at the Kansas state track and field meet. Knoche, a pitcher and first baseman for Roseville Area High School, earned her first varsity letter in softball as a seventh grader. A two-time team captain, she earned all-section honors in 2014 and all-conference honors in 2014 and 2015. Maddox, a first baseman and outfielder, has helped Foothill High School earn back-to-back third place finishes at the state tournament. She is a three-year letterwinner and two-time all-state selection. The final member of the 2017 signing class is Roemmich, local product from Valley High School. She has guided the Tigers to the state tournament in each of her first three seasons, including to a third place showing in 2015. A midfielder and outfielder, Roemmich was named first team all-state as a sophomore and junior. “They each have outstanding characteristics, a great passion for the game and excel in the classroom,” Calvert said. “Time will tell on the impact they will have on the softball field, but they all come from programs, whether high school or club, that have achieved tremendous success during their time. We look forward to seeing them develop over their careers.”Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
