BP Egypt Announces Seth First Gas →

bpholdingsradarnold:

On the 23rd of June, first gas from the $334 million Seth development commenced approximately 18 months from project sanction, which is 15 weeks ahead of schedule.

Seth field is located 60km offshore in the Ras El Bar concession in the East Nile Delta Mediterranean, close to existing producing Ha’py and Denise fields. Seth is being developed with a 6 well slot, normally unmanned platform with gas being exported via the Denise (Pliocene) pipeline to El Gamil gas terminal near Port Said. The first two wells accessing the western part of the Seth reservoir are expected to reach 170 mmscfd and develop about 240 bcf of gas. 

“Seth is yet another example of BP’s 50 years of commitment to Egypt and longstanding partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum, EGPC, and EGAS. We look forward to continuing to play a key role in the development of Egypt’s energy sector in order to help meet Egypt’s growing energy demands for years to come,” said Hesham Mekawi, Regional President, BP Egypt. 

“The success of the Seth project has led us to accelerate its Phase 2 development to access gas in the eastern part of the field through an additional two platform wells, which are planned to be on production by the end of 2012, increasing Seth offtake to in excess of 250 mmscfd,” added Mekawi.

New York: As the economic data forwarded assorted signs on the recovery on a day before the April payrolls report, U.S. stocks fell on Thursday, while the Green Mountain shares had been pushed after poor results. Moreover, the dominant U.S. services sector has also been driving the day’s employment slower than the expected growth. After than a few chains including Target Corp, whose dropped is in 2.5 percent to $56.55 and Gap Inc which fell 1.6 percent to $28.67, the retail sector hauled down the market, fell after the missing 0.9 percent sales estimates on April.

On the report, Micron Associates claims that the initial jobless were posted as the biggest weekly drop since May 2011 and countered Wednesday report on private-sector hiring. Furthermore, Market expectations which were reported on Micron Associates for Friday’s non-farm payrolls have dropped this week. It is now alleged that the economy could have an added of 125,000 up to 150,000 jobs in April, lower than the Reuters consensus forecast of 170,000. However, the S&P 500 in which has fallen close to its 50 day moving average of around 1,386.48 keeps up its with new four-year highs, although it has a great effort to rise above resistance at the 1,400 level. Moreover, the S&P 500 slipped in April, the first monthly drop since November, on softening domestic data, coupled with flare-ups in the euro zone’s debt crisis.

Head of equity trading at RBC Capital Management, Ryan Larson said that the silent reactions to current signs of economic downturns suggests some investors to count on more monetary stimulus from the Federal Reserve if the data gets worse. In accordance with the latest shift in Micron Associates perception of discouraging data, the head of equity trading stresses “bad numbers can go back to their good values.” Mounting to 47.8 percent up to $25.87 are being lost in the shares of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in a day after the company badly missed the sales estimates for the second time in three quarters. In view of this the stock became the second-biggest drop on the Nasdaq 100. The 61.98 industrial average points or 0.47 percent of Dow Jones were being dropped to 13,206.59 at the close. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index fell 10.74 points, or 0.77 per cent, to 1,391.57. The Nasdaq Composite Index lost 35.55 points, or 1.16 per cent, to 3,024.30. In the news released in April, retail stocks fell after several large chains missed sales estimates were a upsetting sign for consumer spending.

The pace of growth in the large U.S. services sector slowed more than expected in April are being showed in the Institute for Supply Management’s report in Micron Associateswith drops in both new orders and employment. That was in contrast to the ISM’s report on Tuesday, which showed US manufacturing activity picked up in April.

This marks the continuation of the instability seen in economic data that causes investors to take a wait-and-see attitude before tomorrow, said by the Chief executive, Chuck Carlson of Horizon Investment Services LLC in Hammond, India.

Micron Associates uncovers, New Xbox wait and see. →

huntqueran:

On a report from Micron Associates, It is a new stage for the next geration Xbox in manufacturing . The publication that assembly recently started at the Austin, Texas branch of Flextronics, the same company responsible for manufacturing the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox before that.

The company reportedly created a whole new testing group to work on the new Xbox, separate from everyone else. The new group was responsible for marketing, software and hardware testing and with those tasks behind them, the project has moved on to manufacturing.

Micron Associates points out that although systems are being actively created, they likely aren’t retail models. Instead, Flextronics is probably churning out development kits that will be sent to game studios so companies can get to work on making games for the new system that will be ready in time for the console’s launch.

In view of this, the said new XBOX is still probably a couple of years to wait and to be seen in the market. Given the fact that,Microsoft won’t be showing any new hardware at this year’s E3 convention.

As is the average, Microsoft and Flextronics provided no comment on the gossip. Considering that Microsoft will soon be offering a subsidized $ 99 Xbox 360 bundle paired with a two year service conformity, it seems possible to think that the company plans to ride the 360 wave for at least two more years following the successful launch of Kinect,Micron Associates added.

Romney names gay man to advisory team - 446 - Gay Lesbian Bi Trans News - Windy City Times →

huntranqueran:

Republican presidential nominee apparent Mitt Romney has begun his run toward the political middle, and one aspect of that shift appears to have involved adding an openly gay man to his team of campaign advisors.

The advisor is Richard Grenell, 45, who also served the administration of President George W. Bush, as a spokesman for the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. He was also appointed by Ambassador John Danforth in 2004 to serve as an alternative representative of the United States to the U.N. Security Council.

The campaign’s announcement on April 19 did not identify Grenell as gay, only that he was joining the campaign to serve as its spokesman on national security and foreign policy issues.

Grenell has served a long line of prominent Republicans in various capacities, including New York Gov. George Pataki, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and San Diego Mayor Susan Golding.

The fact that the Romney campaign announced Grenell’s appointment suggests the campaign intends to go after those one in four gay voters who tends to vote Republican.

But one blogger—Doug Wead, a senior advisor to the Ron Paul campaign—noted that the Romney campaign also announced, on that same day, Romney’s plan to speak at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University. He called the same-day announcements “a clumsy attempt to show respect to both the evangelical and gay communities.”

“Instead,” wrote Wead on DougWead.com, “it shows that the Romney campaign understands neither one.”

However, Grenell may turn out to be a little too abrasive to attract any but the hardcore Republicans in the LGBT community. Just last month, he penned an op-ed piece for the Washington Blade that derided gay Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Capehart for defending President Obama’s evolving position on same-sex marriage.

MetroWeekly in Washington, D.C. reported that Grenell and his longtime partner live in California. Other media reported Grenell is expected to be working out of Romney headquarters in Boston.

Grenell is a member of Log Cabin Republicans, the national gay Republican group, and spoke about foreign policy issues at its national conference last year.

Jimmy LaSalvia, head of the national gay conservative group GOProud, said he feels sure Grenell “will be an outstanding addition” to Romney’s foreign policy and national security team.

“Mitt Romney has a record, throughout his entire career, of assembling top notch teams to execute the tasks at hand,” said LaSalvia, “and I think this choice shows that he’ll attract the top talent to help him bring America back. And that’s good for all Americans—gay or straight.”

Politico.com columnist Alexander Burns reported April 20 on Grenell’s passion for tweeting, especially crass observations about GOP presidential long-shot Newt Gingrich’s current wife, Callista. According to Burns, Grenell has tweeted cutting remarks about Mrs. Gingrich’s hair, her quiet demeanor and the fact that she is Gingrich’s third wife.

Presumably, that sort of tweeting will stop, given that the Romney campaign, just one week ago, criticized lesbian Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen for commenting on the fact that Ann Romney has not held a paying job while raising her five sons.
