Teen killed as mining pit caves in at Konawaruk

Posted on by

first_img– Committee of Inquiry launched into deathIn yet another mining accident, a teenager was on Sunday afternoon killed after a mining pit in which he was working caved in. The tragedy occurred at a mining pit in the Konawaruk Backdam, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni).The dead teenager was identified as Ramal Williams, 18, of 58 Miles Mabura Road, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice). According to reports, the teenager, along with others, was working in the pit when it suddenly gave way. The others reportedly ran to safety, but Williams was trapped by the soil.After some time, his motionless body was pulled from the pit and taken to the Mahdia Hospital where doctors confirmed his death. An investigation has since been launched into the incident.The Natural Resources Ministry in a release stated that it was saddened by the unfortunate death of the teenager.As such, Minister within the Natural Resources Ministry, Simona Broomes has been tasked with the responsibility of visiting the area to ascertain the circumstances leading to the death of the young miner.Broomes’ team will include representatives of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC). In addition, a Committee of Inquiry will also be launched to fully investigate the matter within the next 72 hours.The Ministry also expressed its condolences to the family, colleagues, and friends of Williams.Williams is the second teen to have died in a mining pit collapse this year at Konawaruk. In March of this year, 19-year-old Trenton Sebastian of Kurukubaru, was killed at Konawaruk, Mahdia Backdam, after the mining pit in which he was working collapsed, pinning him under slush.It was reported that Sebastian and four other miners were washing the walls of the mine while other miners were simultaneously clearing the area of trees, when one of the walls of the pit caved in.Region Eight has seen its fair share of deadly mining pit collapses over the years. A mining pit collapse at Mowasi Backdam, which claimed the lives of 10 miners back in May 2015, led President David Granger to establish a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to probe mining accidents.The CoI report highlighted that there have been over a 15-month period, 28 deaths, most of them a result of pit cave-ins. It revealed that from 2012 to 2015, 62 miners, mostly young men, lost their lives on the job.These accidents were said to have been caused by negligence, especially with regard to safe mining practices, including shortcuts taken by workers, who sometimes treasured their finds over their own lives. The CoI determined there was a pervading culture of laxness towards safety, and that clear rules must be applied and enforced.last_img read more

ExxonMobil discovers more oil offshore Guyana

Posted on by

first_imgUS oil giant ExxonMobil has made its ninth discovery offshore Guyana, marking its fifth discovery on the Stabroek Block in the past year and proving a new play concept for potential development.The discovery was made at the Hammerhead-1 well, where approximately 197 feet of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoir were encountered.The well was safely drilled to 13,862 feet depth in 3,373 feet of water.The Stena Carron drillship began drilling on July 27, 2018.President of ExxonMobil Exploration Company, Steve Greenlee, said the Hammerhead-1 discovery reinforces the potential of the Guyana Basin, where ExxonMobil is already maximizing value for all stakeholders.Greenlee said the development options for Hammerhead will take into account ongoing evaluation of reservoir data, including a well test.Hammerhead-1 is located approximately 13 miles southwest of the Liza-1 well, and follows previous discoveries on the Stabroek Block at Liza, Liza Deep,President of ExxonMobil Exploration Company, Steve GreenleePayara, Snoek, Turbot, Ranger, Pacora and Longtail.Those previous discoveries had led to the announcement of an estimated recoverable resource of more than 4 billion oil-equivalent barrels discovered to date.It also creates the potential for up to five floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels producing more than 750,000 barrels per day by 2025.ExxonMobil has said there is potential for additional production from significant undrilled targets, and there are plans for rapid exploration and appraisal drilling.A second exploration vessel, the Noble Tom Madden, is due to arrive in Guyana in October to accelerate exploration of high potential opportunities, and will commence drilling at the Pluma prospect.Liza Phase 1, which is expected to begin producing oil by early 2020, will use the Liza Destiny FPSO vessel to produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day. Construction of the FPSO and subsea equipment is well advanced.Pending Government and regulatory approvals, Phase 2 is targeted for sanctioning by the end of 2018. It will use a second FPSO designed to produce up to 220,000 barrels per day, and is expected to be producing in 2022.A third development, Payara, will target sanctioning in 2019 and use an FPSO designed to produce approximately 180,000 barrels of oil per day as early as 2023.In May 2015, Exxon confirmed its significant oil discovery at its Liza 1 exploration well, where more than 295 feet of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs were encountered.Exxon’s oil find in Guyana has attracted international attention, with a number of seminars being held over time.Drilling of Payara began on November 12, 2016, with initial total depth reached on December 2, 2016. In January of 2017, the oil giant had announced it had struck oil in its Payara-1 well, targeting the same type of reservoirs as the well’s Liza counterpart.Before that, the company had announced that it had made its third significant discovery in its drilling explorations offshore Guyana. Its partner, Hess Corporation, had noted that the Liza 3 exploratory well’s net value could be US$6.2 billion based on calculations from the Bank of Montreal (BMO) Capital Markets.In late June 2016, Exxon’s drilling results at Liza 2 revealed more than 58 metres of oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs in Upper Cretaceous formations. The well was drilled to 5475 metres at 1692 metres water depth.Drilling results confirmed recoverable resources to be between 800 million and 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Data from the Liza 2 well test is being assessed.Work has been ongoing to build Guyana’s institutions and systems, although Government has faced criticism for the pace of this progress.In addition, assistance is being provided by the IMF to boost Guyana’s administrative capacity to handle the expected inflow of revenue.ExxonMobil’s affiliate, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, is operator, and holds 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block.last_img read more

Sam Allardyce will bring the PASSION back to England, says his former number two

Posted on by

first_imgSam Allardyce would be the ideal choice as England’s next boss, according to his former assistant Phil Brown.The experienced 61-year-old is the current favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson, who quit after the Three Lions’ disastrous showing at Euro 2016.Allardyce’s perceived negative style of management means he wouldn’t be a universally popular choice to lead the national team.But Brown insists the Sunderland manager, who missed out on the England job to Steve McClaren a decade ago, is just what is needed right now as he would restore much-needed passion to the side.“We lost our identity at the Euros,” Southend United boss Brown, who spent six years as Allardyce’s number two at Bolton, told talkSPORT.“Passion – that’s what was missing. We witnessed a great tournament by Wales and we witnessed great games from Ireland and Northern Ireland.“The one thing you associate with English supporters and the one thing you would normally associate with England players, would be the passion.“But we let ourselves down from a passion point of view, especially in the game against Iceland, and that’s unforgivable.“Sam wouldn’t allow that. If it happens once, it would never happen again with him.“These players need to understand that they represent their country.“Bring your quality and your little bits of magic, that’s what these players can do, but it’s the understanding of what playing for the badge is all about – that’s what Sam would bring.“He also just brings the common man to the game again. He was brought up in Bolton and spent the majority of his time in Lancashire.“It’s the common man who supports the game and it’s who you need to relate to, and I think that’s what Sam would bring as well.“I think he’s a prime candidate.”Asked if he believes Allardyce would take the job if approached by the Football Association, Brown added: “I think he would talk to the FA, yes. He’d be a foolish man not to because it’s been one of his personal ambitions for years.“When he got to the last two with Steve McClaren last time he was bitterly disappointed he didn’t get the job.“He has had a lot of criticism over the years and a lot of people questioning what his methods are but, as far as I am concerned, they are successful. The key factor to it all is being able to man-manage.“I think the job is his if he wants it, if you ask me. There aren’t many prime English candidates about.“The pinnacle of any manager’s career is at an international level. If your country comes calling, it’s a no-brainer.”last_img read more

Fox visit focuses on trade, security

Posted on by

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Fox is on a four-day visit to the Western United States, with stops in Washington, Utah and Los Angeles. His visit to Sacramento came on the same day the U.S. Senate passed a landmark bill that, among other things, calls for a path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants if they pay a fine and learn English. It also would create a guest-worker program and require the building of a fence along the border. Congress must now reconcile significant differences between the Senate bill and a House measure passed in December. Fox did not address elements of the bill that some immigration advocates in America object to, such as the fence. He said Mexico has a shared responsibility on immigration and border security, while respecting human rights and fighting human smuggling and trafficking. He also acknowledged that Mexico has a responsibility to improve its own economy and generate jobs so Mexicans will be less interested in fleeing their homeland. Fox, whose six-year term ends in December, met privately with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, their first meeting since the governor took office, and Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, D-Los Angeles. He is scheduled to meet today with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. He declined a requested meeting with Assembly Republican Leader George Plescia, R-San Diego, citing a lack of time. About a dozen Republican lawmakers boycotted the speech in protest of Mexican policies, believing Fox has not done enough to stem the tide of illegal migrants from his country. Other Republicans who attended either declined to applaud or wore buttons that said “No m s” (no more). “I don’t believe I need to hear from somebody who wants his people to come here illegally,” said Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster, who boycotted the speech. “And yet isn’t doing things in his country to empower people to make money there and provide a good education, the things that his constituency needs in Mexico. That’s why they come here.” She and other Republicans also object to the Mexican government’s refusal to extradite murder suspects who could be facing the death penalty in the United States. Nu ez praised the Mexican president, saying he has a commitment to strong relations with California. “I believe that we have an obligation not to allow immigration to be an issue that polarizes our state, our nation and our relationship with our most important trading partner,” Nu ez said. Schwarzenegger said he planned to address three topics with Fox – trade, immigration and the environment. He said he would not take a confrontational tone, as some conservatives would like to see, but would engage in cooperative discussions about working together on common issues. “Mexico is our friend,” Schwarzenegger said Wednesday. “We will have an open discussion with President Fox of how can we work together in order to solve the problems of our environment, our immigration and border-security problems, and also how do we work together to make our industries flourish, and how to make our economy boom even more.” Schwarzenegger noted that Mexico is California’s top trading partner, and that Mexican tourists spent $1.5 billion here last year. Schwarzenegger said he is prepared to allow the use of the California National Guard to patrol the border, as President George W. Bush has proposed, but he has questions and concerns about who pays for the operation and how long it would last. He also planned to talk with Fox about ways to stop the building of illegal tunnels under the border. Schwarzenegger said more than 40 tunnels, some of them large enough to drive a truck through, have been discovered since 2001 for use in smuggling of drugs and illegal immigrants. Villaraigosa said he will emphasize in his meeting with Fox how Mexico and the city can help each other economically and deal with the immigration issue. “Mexico is an important trading partner with Los Angeles and I want to see us do even more,” Villaraigosa said, adding that he will ask Fox to work to see that more Mexican businessmen are trained in Los Angeles and encouraged to make investments in the city. As part of that, Villaraigosa said he plans to open an Office of International Trade out of the Port of Los Angeles to work to win more business from Mexico, Central America and Asia.

SACRAMENTO – Mexican President Vicente Fox on Thursday praised the U.S. Senate’s vote on immigration policy as a “monumental step forward” and called for increased cooperation on border security and closer economic ties with the U.S. Addressing California lawmakers, minus some who refused to attend to protest Mexico’s domestic policies, Fox said the vote was “a moment that millions of families have been hoping for.” “Mexico believes that it will take more than just enforcement to truly solve the challenges posed by the migration phenomenon, and that a comprehensive reform is in the interest of both nations,” Fox said in English. “Mexico wants to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.” last_img read more
