Doriemus pulls out from L15 farmout agreement with Rey Resources

first_imgThe farmout deal was to see Doriemus assigned a stake of 50% and operatorship of the onshore Western Australia block L15 The farmout deal was announced in March 2019. (Credit: Pixabay/Terry McGraw) UK-based oil and gas firm Doriemus is set to pull out from a farmout agreement made with Rey Resources pertaining to Production Licence L15 in Western Australia.The farmout deal was announced in March 2019 with an aim to bring back the West Kora 1 well, contained in the licence, into economic production. The deal was to see Doriemus assigned a stake of 50% and operatorship of the L15 block, subject to receipt of government approvals.However, its notice of withdrawal sent to the Australia-based Rey Resources ceases its right to earn an interest in the L15 permit and also results in the termination of the agreement.Rey Resources said that it will continue to be the 100% holder of the permit and will look for new partners for the development of L15.Spanning 163km2, the onshore block, located 20km east of Derby, has an estimated 380,000 barrels of 2P Reserves.L15, which was granted in 2010 to Rey Resources, contains the West Kora oilfield whose last production was in 1996.Doriemus to focus on closing a deal signed with OilexDoriemus said that it plans to focus on wrapping up a proposed acquisition of certain oil and gas assets in the onshore Cooper-Eromanga Basin in South Australia from Oilex.As per a binding heads of agreement (HOA) signed last month, the UK firm will acquire 100% of CoEra, a fully-owned subsidiary of Oilex to gain 79.33% direct interest in two petroleum exploration licences PEL 112 and PEL 444, and the right to acquire 27 petroleum retention licences (Northern Fairway PRLs) from Senex.Doriemus also revealed plans to continue assessing the status of each of its remaining assets in the UK and wherever possible, would look to potentially rationalise them for strengthening its balance sheet.The company’s operations are focused on the Weald Basin in Southern England, where it has interests in the Horse Hill and Brockham licences and the Isle of Wight. It also has farm-in interests in the northern Canning Basin in Western Australia.last_img read more

Agents taking over London high streets

first_imgThe online estate agent industry may be growing at a rapid pace but that does not mean that it is time to sound the death knell for traditional high street agents, especially in London where more than 200 new estate agency branches have opened on high streets over the past year, a new study has revealed.Despite a drop in the number of homes for sale in the capital, there was an 8.3 per cent rise in the volume of new high street branches across the city taking the total to 2,881, up from 2,661 compared to the previous year.The data compiled by Rightmove also revealed that there are now more than two branches for each of London’s 1,200 town centres, with all but one – Enfield – seeing an increase in the volume of estate agencies last year.The greatest hike in the number of high street branches was witnessed in Westminster, where the total rose by 27 per cent to 228. Islington was second with a 26 per cent increase, followed by a 16 per cent hike in Hammersmith and Fulham. Perhaps it is no coincidence that property prices in these London boroughs are among the most expensive in the UK.The rise in the volume of estate agents popping up on London’s high streets has occurred in spite a significant fall in the number of property sales transactions.The latest Land Registry data shows London property transactions in decline, but the capital was the region with the most significant annual price increase – up 12.4 per cent year-on-year.North London estate agent, Jeremy Leaf (left), said, “The decline in number of property transactions continues to be a worry. If people aren’t able to move in and out of the market when they want to, there will be an inevitable knock-on effect for the rest of the economy. With the high cost of moving, continued shortage of supply and affordability issues with tougher mortgage criteria, this situation looks unlikely to change any time soon.”The more concentrated clusters of estate agencies are in Walthamstow and Borough, where there are 18 within a quarter of a mile of the Underground station. In Wimbledon, Ealing Broadway, Canary Wharf and Turnham Green there are 17 within in a quarter of a mile radius of the local station.Alex Gosling (right), Chief Executive of HouseSimple.com, which commissioned the research, commented, “Estate agents have been making hay while the sun shines, opening more than 200 new offices in just 12 months. It’s not surprising, when just one office can make hundreds of thousands of pounds in fees in a year. London high streets are paved with property gold.“It’s impossible to walk down a local high street in London now without passing an estate agent’s window, but Londoners will still be surprised to know there are almost 3,000 estate agents in the capital.“It’s a staggering number, particularly when you consider most people now start their property searches online, and may never actually venture into a high street agent’s office.”London London agents online estate agent industry high street agents traditional high street agents February 24, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Southern Command Chief Says South American Allies ‘Got Game’

first_imgBy By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity June 27, 2018 In 1988, Colombia looked like it was on its way to being a failed state. Drug cartels operated with impunity. The rebel group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC, in Spanish) controlled vast swathes of the nation and was working hand in glove with the drug lords. Assassinations were so commonplace and brutal that a whole language developed around them. One particularly brutal way of killing was called a “Cartagena necktie.” The nation looked like it was pitching into chaos. But Colombia and the rest of the region have made tremendous progress since. At the end of May, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos visited NATO headquarters in Brussels to further the nation’s position as the first Latin American nation to become a global partner of the alliance. U.S.-Colombian Partnership For 30 years, Colombian and U.S. officials worked together to bring the nation back from the brink and the sustained relationship across administrations in both countries has paid off, said U.S. Navy Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, the commander of U.S. Southern Command. The admiral spoke to reporters at the Defense Writers’ Group, June 7, 2018. “If we stick together, we can have very successful outcomes,” he said. Today, Colombia is “a modern, thriving, capable partner,” Adm. Tidd said. “The security challenges are still there, but they understand the challenges and they are taking the steps to continue to deal with them.” Adm. Tidd called Colombia a net exporter of security in the region. He noted the Colombian military is working closely with Central American partners to help them as they deal with their internal security challenges. Other U.S. Partners But the effort goes beyond just Colombia and Central America. “We have close partnerships with many capable countries across the region,” the admiral said. “What is not understood or well recognized is just how capable some of these countries are.” Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil “are nations I would stack up there with our very best partners in NATO,” Adm. Tidd said. “These are proud and capable militaries that have taken on broader security responsibilities.” He noted that Uruguay, on a per capita basis, has the largest presence of United Nations peacekeeping troops. Brazil has provided sustained leadership of U.N. missions in Haiti and Lebanon. Colombian officers work on the staff at U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). A Chilean general is a deputy at SOUTHCOM’s Army component headquarters in San Antonio. “This year, in the world’s largest maritime exercise — the Rim of the Pacific — the maritime component commander … is a Chilean rear admiral,” Adm. Tidd said. “These are countries that have game — they are serious, they are capable. All we have to do is continue to work together,” he said.last_img read more

5 ways to support your employees during a merger

first_imgOrganizational change can be quite exciting for credit union leaders. In the face of a merger, decision makers have put a lot of time, effort, and research into the process, working to understand how to make the final outcome as optimal as possible for everyone involved.Employees, on the other hand, may not express the same levels of excitement as their superiors. They’re often left feeling uneasy, questioning how the organizational change will impact their lives and workplaces. Will they still have a job? Should they be worried that they won’t adapt well to the changes? As a leader, you know you’ve done all you can to ensure your employees are taken care of after the merger is finalized. It’s important to remember that your employees are probably not as privy to information pertaining to the merger as you are. To facilitate a smooth, successful transition as you undertake your organizational change, it is vital to support your employees so they stay engaged with boosted morale throughout the process.Here are a few things you can do to make sure you and your employees are on the same page:1. Hold Open ForumsCommunication is absolutely imperative. Your employees need to be able to go right to the source when they have questions or concerns. If they feel uneasy and have no outlet through which to ask questions or obtain answers, you’ll likely be facing a rumor mill that unnecessarily revolves around negativity.2. Reinforce the BenefitsIt is important that your employees understand the merger is a good thing. The merger will offer many benefits to your employees and members, and advertising these advantages will help your team feel supported.Focus on:Improved technologyGreater service offeringsPotential opportunities for advancementIncreased footprintPossibility of increased salaries or improved employee benefits3. Empower Key EmployeesEmpower your workforce by inviting key employees to play a strategic role in the merger integration process. It’s vital that your employees feel heard and represented as this organizational change gets underway. Perhaps you invite employees with seniority to certain meetings, or maybe you find a way to facilitate communication by designating specific team members to be the sounding board for the other staff members. In any event, empowerment is essential if you want your team members to feel like you have their best interest at heart.4. Celebrate SuccessesSuccess may be a huge thing, or it could be something small that makes someone’s day just a little brighter. You don’t have to wait for something miraculous to happen to make your employees feel important. During this time of change and uncertainty, celebrate the little things by building a culture of appreciation that lets your employees know you’re paying attention to the great jobs they’re doing.Send out “Congratulations!” emails, have a potluck day to honor a great milestone, or create a newsletter that recognizes great accomplishments. If you’re unsure how to recognize your team, ask for feedback. That, alone, will go a long way.5. Be Part of the CultureThis isn’t the time to hide behind a closed office door. Mingle with your team so your employees feel comfortable coming to you with questions and concerns.When it comes to credit union mergers, there are a lot of moving parts. As you dig through the research, attend meetings, and finalize plans, don’t overlook the people who have made your CU successful thus far. 26SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Glenn Christensen Glenn Christensen is Founder and President of CEO Advisory Group the first Merger and Acquisitions consultancy focusing on the credit union industry.As a visionary and entrepreneurial leader with 25 … Web: www.ceoadvisory.com Detailslast_img read more
