Dart Energy Completes PEL445 Transfer in NSW, Australia

first_imgDart Energy announced that the transfer of Petroleum Exploration Licence 445 from Arrow Energy has been completed.PEL 445 is a sizeable licence, covering 7,076km² of the Clarence-Moreton Basin, in northern New South Wales, Australia. Exploration to date has shown the coals of the Walloon Coal Measures contain good to excellent gas composition and are well saturated. It is believed that the Walloon Coal Measures contains a significant volume of Gas-in-place within the PEL445 area. In addition, potential secondary targets have been identified in the sandstones of the Bundamba Group and the deeper Ipswich Coal Measures.The addition of PEL445 will increase Dart’s total NSW portfolio to eight licences, with a total area of approximately 26,000 km2 , representing one of the largest CSG and unconventional gas acreage holdings in the State. The transfer of PEL 445 to Dart was agreed to approximately 10 months ago, and completion has been pending regulatory approval since. The transaction to acquire PEL 445 also included the settlement of various outstanding liabilities between Dart and Arrow relating to the demerger of Dart from Arrow in 2010. The total consideration was AUD$1.9mof which circa AUD$200,000 related to PEL 445.PEL 445 has minimal commitments, and thus fits with Dart’s current strategy in NSW, being to retain a sizeable acreage position at low cost, pending a more supportive policy regime for CSG development in that State. Dart welcomes recent statements indicating renewed support from the Australian Federal Government for the development of the CSG industry in New South Wales, and the recognition that the local CSG industry will play a key role in the addressing the pending regional gas shortage.[mappress]LNG World News Staff, September 25, 2013; Image: Dart Energylast_img read more

DAEC calls for ‘godly conduct’ during election campaign

first_imgLocalNewsPolitics DAEC calls for ‘godly conduct’ during election campaign by: Dominica Vibes News – November 14, 2014 Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img 437 Views   no discussions Share Rev Marcus Francis, president of the Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches’ (DAEC) (file photo)The Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches’ (DAEC) has called on all Christians to conduct themselves in a “godly” manner during the election campaign.In a press statement on Friday, 14 November 2014, the DAEC, headed by Reverend Marcus Francis, said it recognises the privilege we have in Dominica to participate in the electoral process.“Adult suffrage was secured through the sacrifice of our forefathers, therefore the Church encourages its members to embrace the opportunity and help shape the future of our nation that is afforded through this process”.Therefore, as the campaign begins, the Association has encouraged believers “to be cognizant of their godly mandate and to ensure that they lead in all areas, in accordance with [1 Timothy 2:2-8]”.“The Association therefore sends a clarion call to believers to conduct themselves in a godly manner during this period. Believers are reminded that we are salt and light and as such everything we do we should seek to bestow grace and give direction,” the statement said.The DAEC has also declared Sunday, 23 November 2014 as a day of prayer and fast on behalf of the Nation. Additionally, the Association has encouraged the believing community to spend quality time praying for the country, candidates, process; and “that the will of God is done in the land”.“This election, like previous ones, is being keenly fought and as such we need to pray for a season of peace and non-violence”.“We ought always to be mindful that the kingdom of darkness will seek to infiltrate the process or may be invited so to do; the Church is therefore called upon to be vigilant and discerning of the devil’s plan and engage in spiritual warfare,” the statement states.The Association has also encouraged believers to organise corporate and community prayer through their local churches or small groups coming together to pray. “Church leaders are encouraged to be wise in their utterances. Political parties and candidates are encouraged to be respectful and civil in their speeches and towards each other and cautioned to not take the name of Jehovah God and the Holy Spirit in vain through inferences or direct reference to Jehovah God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, outside of prayers”.The Executive of the Association prays that God will reign and override every plan of the evil one and that the peace and stability of our Nation will be maintained. The Association’s strategy includes Prayer and Fast, Community Prayer Walks and Early Morning Prayer Walks and Gatherings.last_img read more

Police deny ‘shootout’ in sea operation

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews Police deny ‘shootout’ in sea operation by: Dominica Vibes News – March 17, 2015 Share Share Tweetcenter_img 523 Views   6 comments Share Erickson Blaize, 30, of Grand BayThe Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force has denied that its officers were involved in a shootout or exchange of gunshots with three men who attempted to evade Coast Guard officers on Saturday 14 March 2015.The Coast Guard officers, who were on patrol on the sea on the west coast of the island, reportedly saw three men aboard an open keel boat about a mile outside of Bioche, which “appeared suspicious” a report from police public relations officer Claude Weekes indicates.Mr Weekes reported that the officers approached the boat in question and attempted to attract the men’s attention, including the “loud hailer, the light…a few warning shots to prevent them from going…shouting out police” but they continued to flee police. “They did not stop at all until they crashed the boat unto the rocks at Bioche. The boat sustained very serious damages and disintegrated,” Mr Weekes said.Erickson Blaize, 30, of Grand Bay and Keron Charles, 28, of Silver Lake two of three occupants were seriously injured as a result, while the third jumped into the sea and has not yet been found.“So one of the men, Erickson Blaize, 30 years of Hagley, Grand Bay, was seriously injured, [he] seemed to have gotten head injuries so he was referred to the Princess Margaret Hospital from Portsmouth, but on his way on arriving somewhere Massacre or so, it was reported that he succumbed,” Mr Weekes reported.“The other one, Keron Charles, 28, of Silver Lake, he sustained very serious injuries as well in the lower part of his body, his waist line and so. He was taken to Roseau, he was discharged, but his injuries seemed to have worsened and he was brought back to the Princess Margaret Hospital where he is a patient at the Alford Ward,” he continued.According to Mr Weekes’ report, the police is in pursuit of the third man who jumped from the boat as “he becomes a person of interest” and that a “substantial amount” of marijuana and cocaine were discovered on the boat.“The boat in question, having been extensively damaged, is also a subject of interest. The drugs have been seized…the investigation is in its embryonic stages,” he indicated.Mr Weekes said despite speculation from members of the public and erroneous media reports, the police did not exchange gunshots with the occupants of the boat.“It’s interesting to note, given all of the speculations and the erroneous writings and utterances by people, or even some media houses that the police shot or was in a shootout with the occupants of the boat, we want to categorically deny that, we were not in any gun-shot battles or exchanges of gun fire with anyone for that matter,” he informed. “During our routine exercise and in ways to seek to get the attention to stop people who are, whether in drugs or contraband as it were around our borders, at certain times bullets or rounds would be discharged in the air,” Mr Weekes said.last_img read more

St Lucia threatened into accepting deportees from US — PM Chastanet

first_imgInternationalNewsPrintRegional St Lucia threatened into accepting deportees from US — PM Chastanet by: Caribbean Media Corporation – January 31, 2017 Share Tweet Allen ChastanetCASTRIES, St Lucia (CMC) — Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says the United States had threatened St Lucia to accept nationals deported from the North American country.Chastanet told reporters that Castries was told that if it did not accept the deportees, travel for locals would be “pulled”.He said while he has indicated to Washington that he is not pleased with the threat, he would honour the current system.However, Chastanet said he would continue to lobby for an international treaty to deal with the situation and explained that he was concerned that someone who left this country at two years old, spent their childhood and adult life overseas, committed a crime and is repatriated.The prime minister said that the flaw in the process is that the United States is using the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) legislation governing air travel to send people back.“In that agreement, if somebody leaves here and is detained or for some reason denied entry, it is required that we accept that person back,” the former Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister said.He said he understands that provision within a particular lime frame but was not sure that the architects of the ICAO agreement had in mind that someone could spend up to 50 years in a country and then be repatriated.“I think this is an issue that must be brought up at the UN level and I think that we should write a treaty that specifically deals with deportees and how we are going to handle it,” the prime minister told reporters.Chastanet observed that some countries like India have refused to accept the deportees.“Countries that seem to have the backbone and the ability to say ‘no’ get away with it. Unfortunately, a smaller state like ours has to depend on a national treaty that we can go by because certainly we do not have the ability to push back,” he told reporters.

Sale of Airport Land to Schilling Rentals Postponed

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A proposal to sell Kenai Airport-owned land to Schilling Rentals has been postponed, until the sponsor of the ordinance, Councilor Tim Navarre, is able to speak on the issue. Navarre had placed the item on the City Council’s consent agenda for June 1, but it was removed by Councilor Terry Bookey in order to provide time for general Council discussion. Bookey was attending via teleconference and later requested the issue be postponed… Duane Bannock of Schilling Rentals brought his employer’s request to an open meeting of the City Council last July… The issue has grown contentious at times as business owners contested the multi-decade leases they’ve been paying, while the City’s position so far has been to hold onto the properties until the financial benefit to the airport in selling the land is significantly greater than the loss of the lease revenue. Cm. Bookey: “I did not realize that Mr. Navarre was not in attendance at this meeting. While I don’t support this ordinance, nor do I support its introduction, I do believe, out of respect for Mr. Navarre, that we should postpone introduction until he is present to speak to his ordinance.” The Schilling Rentals’ bid has been led by Duane Bannock and related to a parcel of airport-owned land, the former Decor Building, which was improved by the Schillings and is now a medical clinic. Bannock: “The City Administration is recommending a no sale of a piece of property that the firm that I work for is leasing and wants to buy. The philosophy checks needs to be, ‘how does the City of Kenai address long-term lease holders that want to buy their property?’ Particularly property that is within the airport land system.”last_img read more
