Exxon expands reserves in 2006

HOUSTON – Exxon Mobil Corp. said Thursday it added 1.95 billion barrels of oil equivalent to its proved reserves last year, about 350 million barrels more than it produced, continuing a positive trend. The world’s largest publicly traded oil company said it produced 1.6 billion oil-equivalent barrels in 2006 – 976 million barrels of liquids and 3.7 trillion cubic feet of gas. The Irving-based company produces about 3 percent of the world’s oil. The most significant additions to its reserves came from the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. “With a five-year average replacement ratio of 114 percent, Exxon Mobil has continued to replace annual production with new quality opportunities,” said Rex Tillerson, chairman and chief executive. “This performance is a reflection of our disciplined investment strategy and strong project portfolio and execution capabilities.” Analysts typically say a company’s reserves replacement should average more than 100 percent over a three-to-five-year period to indicate growth. Proved reserves are a key asset of oil companies. Lysle Brinker, an analyst with the energy consulting firm John S. Herold Inc., said Exxon Mobil’s proved reserves for 2006 appear to be better than most of its competitors, largely reflecting the company’s “deep bullpen of potential resources” and its broad geographic base. “You have to remember with these big, monster companies that one year is not a very good gauge of their overall (replacement) performance,” Brinker said. “But year-in and year-out, Exxon appears to be performing the best with regard to most yardsticks on reserves replacement.” Exxon Mobil earned $39.5 billion in 2006, the largest annual profit by a U.S. company. Exxon Mobil shares fell 26 cents to close at $75.34 on the New York Stock Exchange. Its shares have traded in a range of $56.64 to $79 in the past year.last_img read more

Prep roundup: Late strike knocks Hart from playoffs

first_img The Indians had another opportunity to find the back of the net in the 17th minute, when Brittany Clark’s blast from 10yards hit the post and came back out to sophomore Allison Carivau, who missed the net. Hart’s offense, usually prolific, had scored 106 goals heading into the semifinal match. The play of Winegar kept the Wildcats (23-2-2) in the game during Hart’s first half shooting barrage, in which the Indians (25-4-1) had more than a dozen scoring chances. The second half saw Hart controlling the possessions once again, but failing to score thanks to a stingy Wildcats defense. It looked as if Hart would eventually score a late goal to win – as they had done in the playoffs against Moorpark and Royal – but Winegar barely deflected Mills’ curving shot in the 70th minute. -Nima Ghazai OTHER Despite dominating most the first half, Hart of Newhall fell to visiting East Valley of Redlands on a goal by in the 74th minute to shock the Indians 1-0 in the semifinals of the girls Southern Section Div.II Southern playoffs Tuesday. With overtime looming, Thomas received a cross from Briana Campos, who then brought the ball to her stomach and poked it into the right corner of the goal as she fell, from about 20 yards out. “We talked about not letting our guard down, and we let our guard down,” Hart coach Louis Romero said. “It’s a tough game to lose when you’ve been dominating and the other team gets one on a flukey mistake. Taylor Thomas Hart had scoring opportunities early and often in the opening half. Lindsay Mills’ shot in the first minute was off the mark, and her free kick two minutes later was saved by Redlands goalkeeper Brittany Winegar. center_img SOUTHERN SECTION GIRLS’ SOCCER DIVISION V Oaks Christian 2, Notre Dame Academy 1: Kelsea Smith’s 38-yard shot in the 72nd minute capped visiting Oaks Christian of Westlake Village’s second-half rally, lifting the Lions (16-6-1) to their fourth division title game in fiveyears with the victory at West L.A. College. Tatum Marshall gave 2006 division co-champion Notre Dame Academy of West Los Angeles (13-5-5) the lead in the 13th minute. Kelly Johnson tied the score in the 44th minute on a 30-yard shot for the Lions, who shared titles from 2003-05. “I’m really proud of these girls,” said Oaks Christian coach Jan Hethcock, whose team played Notre Dame Academy to a scoreless tie in the 2004 division final. “They have the most heart out there.” Noe Salter preserved the lead with an acrobatic save in the final two minutes for the Lions, who advanced to Saturday’s championship as a wild-card entry after finishing fourth in the Tri-Valley League. “I always thought we could do it,” Johnson said. “We’re definitely peaking at the right time.” DIVISION VI Desert Christian/Lancaster 4, Calvary Chapel/Murrieta 0: Carleigh Hobson, a member of the Knights’ basketball team playing her first soccer game this season, scored twice to help visiting Desert Christian of Lancaster (23-1-2) advance to its first division final since 2003 with a victory over the Warriors (20-6-4). Robyn Estrada scored her 40th goal of the season, and Hannah Parcel added a goal for the top-seeded Knights, who received assists from Jaide Garcia and Kristyn Richards. “This team was really good and they had more shots than we did, but we just put ours in,” Desert Christian coach Deann Lewis said. “We just capitalized on our opportunities.” GIRLS’ BASKETBALL SOUTHERN SECTION PLAYOFFS DIVISION II-A Temescal Canyon 50, Palmdale 46: The visiting Falcons had twice relied on fourth-quarter comebacks to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2003. But after surrendering 10 consecutive points to 12th-seeded Temescal Canyon of Lake Elsinore (23-6) during a three-minute stretch of the second half at Lakeside High, No.10 Palmdale (18-12) couldn’t muster one final rally, falling short of reaching its first division final since 1996. “Our game plan was never executed,” said Palmdale coach George Corisis, who moved into eighth on the state’s all-time wins list (502) with three postseason victories. “We got back into it (to tie the score 29-29 in the third quarter), but we made four turnovers in five possessions and that really buried us.” Brittney Lloyd led the Falcons with 15 points, but Palmdale had no answer for Temescal Canyon’s Britnie Priest, who finished with a game-high 24. The Falcons, who received 10points from Charity Smith, twice cut the deficit to fourpoints in the final four minutes, but couldn’t get any closer. -Erik Boal 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Salah row escalates with Egyptian FA

first_imgNow the conflict has flared up again after the striker and his lawyer accused the FA of failing to respond to a list of requests dealing with the player’s treatment.Salah’s lawyer Ramy Abbas Issa said the demands involved the player’s “well-being whilst with the national team, and assurances that the image rights violations wouldn’t happen again”.In an angry rebuttal the football federation said Monday that it would not accept the requests, blasting some as “illogical” and insisting it would not “favour one player over another”.Salah hit back with a pair of Facebook videos, insisting he was asking for better security for the whole squad at team hotels.He said that he did not want to be disturbed in his room by visitors wanting to chat in the middle of the night as had happened before.“I’m the person that these things happen to. I’m the person who gets harmed by these things,” he said.“These requests are very small but make things easier, they make the player focused in the match.”The fresh war-of-words between the two sides comes ahead of Egypt’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Niger on September 8.The disagreement between national hero Salah and the Egyptian FA first burst into the open in April over the player’s image rights.Salah was angered that his image was being used by the national team’s main sponsor, telecoms firm WE, when he already had a contract with rival company Vodafone.That dispute was eventually resolved following intervention from political leaders.The player was also reportedly left unhappy after he was made to appear with Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov at Egypt’s training ground in the region for the World Cup in Russia this summer.Kadyrov has been accused of wiping out dissent with a brutal crackdown on his opponents.Egypt crashed out of the World Cup after losing its three matches, with Salah struggling to reach his best after sustaining a shoulder injury playing for his club Liverpool in the Champions League final.0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Egypt’s forward Mohamed Salah looks on during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group A football match between Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd on June 25, 2018 © AFP / NICOLAS ASFOURICAIRO, Egypt, Aug 27 – A bitter spat between Egypt star Mohamed Salah and his country’s football authorities escalated Monday, casting a fresh shadow over his involvement with the national team.Salah, 26, and the Egyptian Football Association have previously been at loggerheads due to a disagreement over image rights.last_img read more

Arsenal duo Ramsey and Arteta out for two games, confirms ‘frustrated’ Wenger

first_imgArsene Wenger admitted he was left frustrated on several fronts after his Arsenal side were held to a 1-1 draw by fierce rivals Tottenham.Despite dominating possession, the Gunners went behind after the break when Nacer Chadli slotted in, and while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s strike did seal a share of the points, the hosts could have claimed all three if it weren’t for Spurs’ stubborn defence.And if his frustration with his opposition wasn’t enough, Wenger now has yet more injury problems to contend with, confirming both Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta will be out for two games after picking up knocks.The midfield duo were forced off in the first-half with calf and hamstring complaints, respectively – injuries he says will rule them out of Wednesday’s Champions League with Galatasaray and next weekend’s Premier League encounter against Chelsea.Jack Wilshere could also be absent from those games with an ankle issue, leaving Arsenal struggling for numbers once more.“I don’t know how long they’ll be out but they will be out until next week,” Wenger said of Wilshere and Ramsey.“Wilshere, I don’t know. The two others are out for Chelsea for sure.“Suddenly we are short because if we lost three players today, and let’s not forgot that we already have two out long-term plus Theo Walcott, that’s six. Abou Diaby is not ready so it starts to become a worry.”This 174th north London derby clash looked to be going Spurs’ way at the Emirates when Chadli gave Spurs, who defended impressively and played on the break, a surprise lead.However, Arsenal’s dominance of possession eventually took its toll and their stubborn resistance was eventually broken when Oxlade-Chamberlain rifled home from close-range after Tottenham failed to clear.Wenger felt his side deserved more than the one point having dominated not only possession but also the shot count – with 16 on target to Spurs’ six – while the French boss accused Mauricio Pochettino’s men of time-wasting.“I must give credit to my team because once again we came back and we put a huge effort in with a high work rate all together,” the Frenchman said.“It’s one of the few times that we’ve had so much possession against a Tottenham team since I’ve been here, but they defended well, so you have to give them credit too.“Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen did well, as well as Hugo Lloris. They took every second they could again, to make the game last as little as possible.“I would like to see the referee deal with that in the proper way for once.“They tried to make it as simple as possible – they tried to gain time,” he continued. “Slowing the game down is normal and I understand it completely.“But the referee’s there to make the flow of the game respected and I would like an English referee to do it for once.“People pay money in the stands to watch football. It’s as simple as that. It’s only a respect of the people who pay money to watch football.”last_img read more

Roma confirm Alisson is in Liverpool and ‘negotiations are advanced’

first_img England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT “We haven’t finalised anything yet [with Alisson]. But it is true that the negotiations are advanced and he’s over in Liverpool now,” Monchi, Roma’s sporting director, said.“When a very substantial offer comes in, you have to consider it. We weighed up the pros and cons and decided to speak to Liverpool.”Alisson has been with Roma for the past two seasons, having arrived from Internacional in July 2016, and has played 64 times for the Serie A club.He has been capped 31 times by Brazil and was selected ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson at the World Cup, playing in all of his country’s matches as they reached the quarter-finals.Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp made his move for Alisson having decided he could no longer rely on Loris Karius.Karius produced a disastrous performance in the Champions League final in May, although it was later revealed he was suffering with concussion, and he has looked shaky on his return to action in pre-season games. silverware How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures predicted gameday cracker possible standings 1 smart causal Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?
