Chevron Makes Gas Discovery Off Coast of Australia

Bloomberg

By Edward Klump – Aug 12, 2010 9:05 PM

Chevron Corp., the second-largest U.S. oil company, announced a natural-gas discovery in the Exmouth Plateau area off the northwest coast of Australia.

The Brederode-1 exploration well was drilled to a depth of 9,022 feet (2,750 meters) in waters 4,550 feet deep, San Ramon, California-based Chevron said today in a statement. It found 49 feet of net gas pay, the company said.

The discovery provides further evidence of the gas potential of the Exmouth Plateau in the Carnarvon Basin, Chevron Vice Chairman George Kirkland said in the statement. It follows a 2009 discovery in the same area and extends known gas resources farther off Australia’s shores, the company said. read more

Statoil, Shell and the Arctic Ocean

From a former Shell employee…

This follows up on my article… What happens if Statoil is involved in major Arctic Ocean blowout?

I am absolutely certain that senior level Statoil management is fully aware of the potential ‘political consequences’ if any of their exploration or production operations in US Arctic waters were to suffer from a major ‘environmental incident’. The BP fiasco has sensitized the entire industry to that issue. I am also certain that the Norwegian government is likewise aware of the potential consequences.

(I am also certain that the Dept. of Interior and MMS are in over their little heads and clueless about how to deal with such a situation.) read more

Due to the very short half-life of radon, it needs to be measured ideally within about 4 days of the sample being taken.  The samples currently held by Core Lab will therefore be of no further use in determining radon levels.

Because of this problem, we made arrangements to measure the radon levels offshore at the time of sampling.  The level measured was 26.9 Beq/m3 (“normal” formation radon concentrations are quoted by the lab as being in the range 10 – 100 Beq/m3). read more
