OGC releases report on 2017 Todd Energy Well Fire

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has released a report on the 2017 well fire at a facility owned by Todd Energy near Wonowon.On December 3, 2017, workers heard a loud bang followed by a gas release from a well site north of Wonowon.  Only 83 seconds after the gas release, a fire started at the facility.The report released by the OGC suggests the incident was caused by human error when installing the bull plug on the north casing flange of the wellhead.  The report says “Had the threads of the bull plug been fully engaged in the north casing flange, it is unlikely that well control would have been lost.” “The investigation was not able to identify who installed the bull plug in the north casing flange or when it was installed. Based on interviews, the bull plug may have been installed within 24 hours of when the incident occurred, but this could not be verified.”The fire started on December 3, and it wasn’t until December 22, 2017, when the incident was over, and crews were stood down.  A total of 36 people were working on the site at the time of the incident, and thankfully no one was injured.The report says the collection of evidence was difficult due to the fire and the length of the incident.  “Physical evidence recovered from the site included the wellhead from the ‘0’ well (the first of five wells on the property), a two-inch bull plug that was found at the base of the wellhead and the backplate of the pressure gauge that was installed on the well. The backplate of the pressure gauge was recovered shortly after the incident by TECL (Todd Energy) and was subsequently misplaced during the emergency response effort.“Bull plug recovered from base of the ‘0’ well showing damage on first two threads. – OGCThe Oil and Gas Commission has directed Todd Energy to develop a procedure to ensure wellhead components are assembled by competent personnel and that connections are inspected and documented before being pressurized.  The Commission says Todd Energy has already implemented a wellhead checklist.The report also says Todd Energy must do ongoing monitoring of groundwater to show that remediation from the fire has been completed. A copy of the event timeline and the full report are below. Todd Energy Well Fire Timeline This timeline was created by the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission.

first_imgPanaji: Late Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s sons Utpal Parrikar and Abhijat Parrikar have said that they would “honour his (Parrikar’s) life by continuing his legacy of service and dedication to the State and the Nation”. The public statement comes amid speculation that the late Chief Minister’s elder son Utpal Parrikar is likely to join active politics. In a joint letter, which was released to the media via the Chief Minister’s Office, both the brothers have also said that BJP karyakartas (cadres) were much closer to Parrikar than the two brothers and the bond, the letter says, became evident when the former Defence Minister passed away on March 17 following a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer.

Morocco Enjoys Great Credibility in Scientific Research International Space Station

Rabat – For the first time in the Arab world, the International Space Station (ISS) held a teleconference with Moroccan students of Morocco’s National School of Computer Science and Systems Analysis (ENSIAS) and astronauts on January 3.During the first of its kind contact, the International Space Station (ISS) on-orbit crew touched upon life on board the ISS and space industry.The school community, including the students, teachers, families and community members were informed by the ISS on the substantial benefits of human spaceflight and the exploration and discovery that occur on spaceflight journeys. Students also learned about space technologies and the technologies involved in space communications through exploration of amateur radio.“This contact will enable Morocco to be more involved in space exploration and sought to give ENSIAS the tools to develop cooperation on space technologies,” said Mohamed Essaaidi, director of ENSIAS.He added that the ISS agreed to hold this conference particularly because Morocco  “enjoys a high level of credibility in the field of scientific research and space exploration.”The contact was held as part of the Amateur Radio program on the International Space Station (ARISS), in partnership with KSF Space, NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and Maroc Télécom.The teleconference, broadcasted live on the KSF Space’s social networks, took place in the presence of CEO of KSF Space, Mohamed Kayyali, and Director of ENSIAS, Mohamed Essaaidi, as well as representatives of NASA and ESA, several national and international researchers and scientists and Secretary of State for Higher Education and Scientific Research, Khalid Samadi.The event comes a month after Morocco launched its first satellite, Mohammed VI-A, in November 8. This significant event made the kingdom the third African country with a reconnaissance satellite after Egypt and South Africa.The Moroccan satellite will be dedicated to Earth observation and will be able to map and take high-resolution images in any weather, night and day.Images collected by the satellite will help Morocco polish its green policies, in line with the country’s commitments to the fight against climate change and environmental protection.Morocco’s second reconnaissance satellite, Mohammed VI-B, is expected to be launched in 2018. Preparations for the launch will be announced in due time. read more

World Bank report urges environmentally safe approach to Chinas development strategy

The report, entitled “China: Air, Land and Water – Environmental Priorities for a New Millennium,” points to three areas of success: broad-based and absolute reduction in industrial air and water pollutant emissions during the second half of the 1990s; the reversal of deforestation through massive investments in reforestation and afforestation; and the reversal of secondary salinization in irrigation areas through major control and prevention programmes.”These achievements are arguably unprecedented in any country at China’s state of economic development,” said Yukon Huang, the Bank’s Country Director for China. “Yet,” he added, “the battle is not even close to being won – environmental challenges are likely to get far greater and more complex over the next 10 years and the Government will have to re-orient its approach if it wants to make further progress.”The report, prepared by a World Bank team and assisted by technical specialists from 10 Chinese research institutes, universities and other organizations, reviews the state of the environment, assesses the effectiveness of the Government’s environmental protection work over the last 10 years, and makes recommendations on how to address the new challenges which will face the country in the near future.Among its proposals, the report urges moving from the current approach of mainly fixing the harmful effects of other development decisions to a more proactive strategy aimed at avoiding or minimizing the adverse environmental effects of development in the first place. read more

Is Mainstream Media Still Scared of Bloggers

first_imgHeadline of a recent Page One story in the New York Times: “In Court Ruling on Executions, a Factual Flaw.” Make that two factual flaws. The first one by the Supreme Court; the second by the Times, whose headline should read “CAAFlog Blogger Discovers Factual Flaw in Court Ruling on Executions.” But the Times, like much of MSM, just can’t seem to stand giving a blogger credit for a scoop.It took the Times until the fourth paragraph to mention that Dwight Sullivan broke the story on June 28th on the CAAFlog blog, and until the eighth paragraph to link to his post. A post on the blog wryly notes: “It may take a few clicks to reach CAAFlog’s post on the case.”Magazines and newspapers still report on blogs as curiosities, or that old standby—personal diaries. They need to get over themselves. Blogs are a new medium, and we’re here to stay. That said, of the supposed 70 million blogs there are perhaps 10,000 with a significant number of readers. My What’s Next Blog gets approximately 10,000 uniques a day. Small potatoes compared to blogs like Boing Boing, that get a million uniques a week, but still respectable, influential, and widely quoted.I’m not going to get into the tired debate over whether bloggers are journalists. Some of us are. Some of us are not. But you can’t put someone who blogs about their cat into the same category as someone whose blog covers industry news or law any more than you can put “Meet the Press” in the same category as “Dancing With the Stars.”The White House Gets InvolvedIn his post, Sullivan noted that the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006, which was passed by Congress, did set out death as punishment for the rape of a child. In fact, none of the 10 briefs lawyers filed in the case mentioned a bill Bush signed last September adding child rape to the military death penalty.Like the game of telephone, where the original message is lost, MSM quickly loses mention of the CAAFlog scoop, and credits the Times for the story. Dan Slater on the WSJ Law Blog credits “the NY Time’s Linda Greenhouse, who … thinks she’s caught the Court out on a flaw in its facts.” The L.A. Times blog doesn’t even mention CAAFlog in its post.The issue, with no mention of the CAAFlog, has reached the White House, and the Washington Post writes: “White House press secretary Dana Perino this morning said “The White House was disturbed by the New York Times report that the court’s decision might be based on a mistake…”Likewise, UPI credits the Times for the scoop.Only the American Bar Association blog gets the headline right: “Blogger Points Out Substantial Error in Supreme Court Decision.” EDITOR’S NOTE: Read more at FOLIO:’s Magazine Marketing Excellence Channel … Mainstream media is still scared of bloggers. And they should be. We’re watching them very closely. Every day. Just like they watch us. Only we credit and link to them. Maybe someday they’ll return the courtesy.SEE RELATED POST: Movie Bloggers Call for Boycott of Variety, Hollywood Reporter last_img read more

Nitish Kumar avoiding responsibilities over AES floods in

first_imgPatna: In the wake of encephalitis crisis and flood in the state, former Chief Minister and RJD leader Rabri Devi on Sunday barraged Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with a series of questions and accused him of avoiding responsibility. “There is encephalitis breakout, drought, and floods in the state but Chief Minister Nitish Kumar avoids responsibility by the blaming nature. Who is responsible for the scandals worth crores of rupees in the name of dam construction to avoid floods,” Devi said in a series of tweets.

How much money has been spent?” “In the amount of money that has been spent every year in the name of relief, rescue and rehabilitation, the issue itself could have been resolved,” Devi added.last_img read more

Philippines ferry accident kills five

first_imgClose-up map locating the area where a ferry capsized in the Philippines. AFPRescue teams in the Philippines resumed their search for survivors Friday after a ferry carrying more than 250 passengers capsized, with at least five confirmed dead.The accident occurred in rough waters off the main island of Luzon Thursday as the Mercraft 3 keeled over en route to a remote island.The 206-tonne vessel had been given the green light to sail as Tropical Storm Tembin gathered pace over the southern Philippines nearly a thousand kilometres away, as there were no storm alerts in the local area, the coastguard said.But a survivor told local radio that the ferry was forced to stop at sea due to large waves and strong winds, before it started taking in water from the bow and tipped over.Filipino ferries, which seasonally brave rough seas in the Pacific typhoon belt, are notorious for overloading.Some 252 people have so far been pulled to safety, with the death toll up to five.The coastguard had earlier said only 251 passengers and crew were on board, but confirmed the vessel had a 286-person capacity.Officials gave no explanation for the discrepancy but acknowledged the boat had carried more than the 251 people listed on its manifest.Rescuers are yet to determine how many are still missing, Efren Ritual, a rescue official in the town of Infanta, said.“The search will continue because there are still people here looking for their missing relatives,” he told AFP by telephone.Local fishing boats and the Philippine navy were assisting in the search, according to the coastguard office in Manila.The Philippines, an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands, is plagued by poor sea transport, with its badly regulated boats and ships prone to overcrowding and accidents.The latest incident occurred 30 years after another Philippine ferry, the Dona Paz, collided with an oil tanker in a pre-Christmas accident south of Manila that claimed more than 4,000 lives in the world’s worst peacetime disaster at sea.last_img read more

UPDATE 1 Dead 6 Hurt At NYC Hospital Gunman Apparently Kills Self

first_imgHe said an alarm went off, and police said there was an active shooter in the hospital. Someone on the loudspeaker also announced a “Code Silver.” “She woke me up and told me there was a situation, somebody’s out there shooting people,” Trimble said as he waited for his wife to come out. “I could hear in her voice she was shaking and about to cry.” Emergency crews were blocked from entering the hospital while the shooter was at large. “I thought I was going to die,” said Renaldo Del Villar, a 55-year-old patient who was in the third-floor emergency room getting treatment for a lower back injury. The FBI tweeted that they had found “no nexus to terrorism” so far. A doctor with a rifle hidden under a lab coat opened fire Friday at the Bronx hospital where he used to work, killing one person and wounding six others before taking his own life, authorities said. Share Gonzalo Carazo described the scary scene to WCBS-TV. “I saw one of the doctors and he had a gunshot wound to his hand,” Carazo said. Police officers went floor by floor looking for the gunman and reported just before 4 p.m. that he was dead inside the building. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the gunman killed himself. He had opened fire on the 16th and 17th floors, police said. Law enforcement officials identified the shooter as Dr. Henry Bello, who was described on the hospital website as a family medicine physician. It was not immediately clear why Bello was no longer working at the hospital. The officials were not authorized to discuss the still-unfolding investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity. Garry Trimble said his wife, hospital employee Denise Brown, called him from inside the hospital shortly after 3 p.m. The shooting started at 2:50 p.m. inside the Bronx Lebanon Hospital, drawing a heavy police presence to the area as officers with guns drawn told people to hide. Hospital employees barricaded themselves in rooms to escape the violence. “I asked them, ‘Are we safe here?” Del Villar said. “When there’s a shooter and you don’t know where the shooter is, you don’t know what’s going to happen.” The 120-year-old hospital has nearly 1,000 beds and one of the busiest emergency rooms in New York City. It is about a mile and a half north of Yankee Stadium.

Flight simulator created in a garage using real Boeing 737 cockpit

first_imgHere at Geek.com we’ve covered a couple of very impressive home flight simulator setups. One managed to recreate a Cessna cockpit using 5 displays and a mix of standard and specialist PC hardware. Another is called the OVO-4 and actually sits you in a moving egg-shaped cockpit to add to the realism. In both cases, some version of Microsoft Flight Simulator was used.Both those examples pale in comparison to the project seen in the video above, though. It has been created by James Price, an Oakland Air Traffic Controller and private pilot who developed it in his spare time.What you are seeing in the video is an actual shell of a 1969 Boeing 737 100. Price housed the shell in a hangar where he gutted it and fitted the cockpit out with the systems contained in the real plane. 90% of those systems are usable as part of his flight simulator experience.It has been a 3 year project that saw the shell moved from the hangar to his garage at home where he continued to develop the simulation. He somehow found time to write custom software that allows him to fly anywhere in the world under any weather conditions as if in a real plane.It seems the only thing missing is motion of the cockpit during flight, but the displays that fill the cockpit windows, combined with a vibration system, would surely be enough to make this seem almost real.Outside of a real plane or training simulator, I think Price’s setup is about as real as it can get and jumps to the top of my most impressive simulator list. I don’t know which flight simulation software he is using, and can’t believe he implemented the whole thing from scratch. I’m assuming his software development was for the multiple other displays outputting information rather than the main simulator. If I’m wrong, this is an even more impressive build.via MercuryNews.comlast_img read more

Suvendu to meet govt employees union lend ear to grievances

first_imgKolkata: State Transport minister Suvendu Adhkari will hold a meeting with the state government employees’ union at Trinamool Bhavan on Monday, to give a hearing to the demands and problems faced by them. Adhikari has recently been given the responsibility to look after the welfare of the government employees in the state, by Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee.It may be mentioned that BJP had taken a lead in 39 among the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state, when it came to postal ballot voting. Trinamool managed a lead in two seats, while the Left Front had a lead in a solitary seat.

Raju Bista from Darjeeling took a lead of 4,679 votes in postal ballot, in comparison to Trinamool candidate Amar Singh Rai. Bista got 5,410 votes against Rai’s 831. In Barrackpore, BJP’s Arjun Singh got 1,504 postal votes, against a meagre 267 managed by Dinesh Trivedi of Trinamool. Sources in the state secretariat Nabanna said that resentment of state government employees over dearness allowance and dragging feet on effective implementation of the sixth pay commission in the state could have been “a factor”, as their votes comprise a part of the overall postal votes in each constituency.last_img read more
