ExxonMobil fined US$74B for underpaying royalties in Africa

first_imgExxonMobil Corp, the company which is currently intensifying exploration activities in Guyana after striking oil here recently, has been fined a whopping US billion for underpaying royalties in the central African nation of Chad, where the company has been drilling for 15 years.According to international reports on the mega fine by Chad courts, the amount is about five times more than that country’s Gross Domestic Product, which the World Bank estimates at US$13 billion.The High Court in the capital, N’Djamena, announced its ruling on October 5 in response to a complaint from the Chad Finance Ministry that a consortium led by ExxonMobil hadn’t met its tax obligations.The court also demanded the Texas-based oil explorer pay $819 million in overdue royalties, according to the document.The penalty exceeds the $61.6 billion financial blow BP Plc incurred after the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010 killed 11 rig workers and fouled the Gulf of Mexico with crude for months, and is more than 70 times larger than the $977.5 million Exxon was ordered to pay fishermen and other victims of the 1989 Valdez oil spill in Alaska.Exxon, the world’s biggest oil producer by market value, began exploring Chad for crude in 2001 and has been pumping oil there since 2003.ExxonMobil recently announced a “world-class discovery” equivalent of 800 million to 1.4 billion barrels of oil following the drilling of the Liza-2 well in the Stabroek Bloc offshore Guyana.The discovery is the company’s second exploration offshore Guyana; the first was made in May 2015.“We are excited by the results of a production test of the Liza-2 well, which confirms the presence of high-quality oil from the same high-porosity sandstone reservoirs that we saw in the Liza-1 well completed in 2015.”As it relates to its legal woes on the African continent, a spokesperson for the company has said, “”We disagree with the Chadian court’s ruling and are evaluating next steps.”“This dispute relates to disagreement over commitments made by the Government to the consortium, not the Government’s ability to impose taxes,” he said.The President of the court, Brahim Abbo Abakar, confirmed the ruling to Bloomberg Markets saying, “It’s correct, however, the provisional enforcement is lower than the amount demanded by the tribunal,” he said, referring to the sum of $669 million also cited in the document. He didn’t elaborate.“Contract sanctity and respect for the rule of law are core principles used to manage our business over the long-term,” Exxon’s Spitler said.“It is vital for all parties to honour the terms of a contract and abide by applicable law in order to achieve the desired long-term benefits envisioned when projects begin.”last_img read more

‘Pollen bomb’ to hit Donegal over Easter weekend

first_imgAsthma and hay fever sufferers are being warned of a potentially deadly “pollen bomb” which could cause life-threatening attacks this weekend. Met Eireann’s pollen count forecast is showing high levels over the coming days as Ireland is set to scorch over the Easter holidays.The national forecaster warned: “With dry, settled and increasingly warm temperatures over the next few days the tree pollen risk will rise to high across all regions.” And the weekend will see spells of sunshine which will bring the mercury into the 20s.Sarah O’Connor, CEO of the Asthma Society of Ireland said: “Project pollen levels are high in coming days and, with pollen levels rising earlier than last year, people with hayfever really need to start managing the condition now, especially those with hayfever and asthma.“80 per cent of people with asthma also have hayfever. We have lots of information on asthma.ie on minimising hay fever symptoms for asthma patients, which for some people can cause a fatal asthma attack.“Hayfever is very misunderstood in Ireland and people often dismiss you as a hypochondriac or simply a complainer when you mention it. “As a hayfever sufferer, I can testify that it is a very debilitating condition that leaves you feeling really miserable and unwell.“The constant runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing are extremely distracting, and the accompanying headache and fatigue have always really marked out the summer months for me. For me, it felt like a flu all summer long.”“Some tips to help prevent and/or reduce symptoms, include: keep windows closed in your bedroom at night, remaining indoors as much as possible, staying away from grassy areas, and putting Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen.“One person dies every five days here as a result of their asthma.”‘Pollen bomb’ to hit Donegal over Easter weekend was last modified: April 20th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

South Africa to get second stock exchange: ZAR X

first_imgSouth Africa is to get its second stock exchange, after the Johannesburg Stock Exchange has dominated trading in the country for more than a century. ZAR X has been given a licence to operate, and it plans to be up and running in September.ZAR X investors will be able to monitor the performances of their shares on the company’s website (Image: Pixabay, CC0 Public Domain)Priya PitamberSouth Africa is to get its first new stock exchange in more than a century. ZAR X Stock Exchange announced yesterday that the Financial Services Board (FSB) had granted it conditional approval for a stock exchange licence.The licence had been granted under the Financial Markets Act and the conditional approval was granted subject to certain suspensive conditions being met to the satisfaction of the Registrar of Securities Services, said ZAR X.The Johannesburg Stock Exchange has been South Africa’s only bourse. It was founded in Johannesburg in 1887, during the Witwatersrand gold rush. It is Africa’s biggest and most liquid stock market.ZAR X intends to start operating in September, and aims to enable more lower- income investors to trade shares. According to the company, ZAR X will help “you to grow your financial potential through investment and saving”.ZAR X, the company explains, is a platform that will let “everyday South Africans transact shares quickly, cheaply and conveniently, even if they have never formally invested money or opened a bank account before. The platform is designed to empower those who don’t have skills or experience in investing, to easily and safely build a brighter financial future for themselves and their families.”It will also give business enterprises a flexible, transparent and affordable way to list their restricted or limited share offerings, so that ordinary South Africans can take advantage of them. The idea will be to give South Africans access to restricted share listings, to help them secure investment opportunities in order to build financial security.Bloomberg news agency reports that ZAR X plans to run three sections: a main board for company listings, an over-the-counter stock-trading business, and an investment products market.“A more flexible and practical listings process will ensure greater simplicity and less complexity for companies making use of the ZAR X Stock Exchange,” chief executive officer Etienne Nel said in a company statement. “We also make investing simpler and affordable for the public, especially the lower income groups.”In a Moneyweb report, Nel said a big cost advantage for investors was that there would be no custody fees. These are fees paid by investors towards brokers who execute trades on their behalf. Although there will be brokers on the ZAR X, investors will not have to execute trades directly through them. Instead they will be able to log their trades via a call-centre, online, or through a mobile app, the online financial news portal reports.ZAR X will be based in Bryanston, Johannesburg, although there will not be a central market itself. Investors will be able to monitor the performances of their shares on the company’s website.It will be in good company. The JSE rates among the top 20 exchanges in the world by market capitalisation.The JSE is regarded as a mature, efficient, secure market with world-class regulation, trading, clearing, settlement assurance and risk management. It has harmonised its listing requirements, disclosure and continuing obligations with those of the London Stock Exchange and offers superb investor protection.The World Economic Forum’s 2015-16 Global Competitiveness Index rates South Africa first in the world – out of 140 countries – for financing through the local equity market, and second for the regulation of securities exchanges.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Panama Canal expansion boosting opportunity for U.S. ag

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A violent lightening streak tore across the sky on a recent trip for a group of U.S. farmers to visit the Panama Canal.“When we were at one of the locks it was just clouding up and a crack of lighting came from nowhere. It is a much more intense lightening than we have here in Ohio and it startled a lot of people. The tour guide said that the lightening is a blessing because without that lightening there is no rain, and if there is no rain water, there is no canal,” said Jeff Magyar, a northeast Ohio soybean grower who was on the trip. “The canal is a giant freshwater lake. They lift you up 40 feet and they drop you down 40 feet on the coasts and you go through a giant lake in the middle. When they open the gates at either end, all of that freshwater runs out into the ocean. They cannot bring saltwater in because that would impact the environment. With the new lock they have big cement basins to catch a higher percentage of that water they get to re-use for the lake because they may not have enough rainwater in a dry year. The weather down there is like Florida where they get violent thunderstorms almost every day, but with much more magnitude in the storms. That is what keeps the environment going down there and that is what feeds water to the canal.”Magyar sits on the board of the Soy Transportation Coalition (STC) through his involvement with the Ohio Soybean Council. Because of the importance of the project to U.S. agriculture, the STC held its annual meeting in early December in Panama where around 100 U.S. soybean farmers (including Magyar) and staff members of soybean associations from around the country got a tour and received an update on the canal’s expansion from officials with the Panama Canal Authority. Along with the abundant rain, the U.S travelers definitely took note of the high temperatures and humidity.“I like the sun, but by noon or 1 in the afternoon there were not many people outside. It was like the hottest part of our warmest day in the summer at dawn down there and then it warms up for the rest of the day,” Magyar said. “It is all tropical rainforest around the canal. I never realized that they have such biodiversity there. It is amazing.”The Panama Canal recently celebrated a century in operation as a monumental achievement of mankind to add efficiency to world travel in a path cut through the wilderness.“The most impressive thing to me was that last year was 100 years in operation. The coast of that country is flatland and the middle of the country is mountains. They had to remove the mountain range 120 or so years ago. The magnitude of doing that 100 years ago was impressive. It is one thing to dig a ditch on the flatland. It is another to dig up a mountain range. Thousands of people died working on that project from malaria and yellow fever from the mosquitos,” Magyar said. “Today half of the money from the canal goes to keeping up the canal and the other half goes to the government. It is definitely a plus for American agriculture. It will also help South American agriculture but the U.S. is the No. 1 beneficiary. We were treated like royalty on the trip because American agriculture is still their top source of revenue for the canal.“I was shocked by the rates in the canal. I have read that the average fare through there is $80,000 to $100,000 but they were saying the average big, dry bulk shipment is more like $400,000. It takes 14 days to go around though.”The Panama Canal has proven to be a valuable shortcut for U.S. grain and soybean exports, connecting vessels loaded in the U.S. Gulf and at East Coast ports for destinations in Central America and Asia. The Panama Canal is wrapping up a $5.25 billion effort to expand its locks to meet current transit volumes, expand vessel transits supporting global trade growth, and to accommodate larger vessel sizes.Three out of every 10 bushels of grain and soybean exports from the U.S. go through the canal, accounting for more than half the exports through the Center Gulf, one-tenth of the Texas Gulf exports and nearly 30% of the Atlantic Coast exports. For soybeans specifically, the Panama Canal handles 44% of total U.S. exports — approximately 600 million bushels of U.S. soybeans annually.With the expansion, the canal will offer the potential for increased loading per vessel, larger vessel sizes to be used, decreased canal transit time, and lower transport costs overall. While in Panama, the group with the STC toured the current canal locks on both the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the country. In addition, participants were able to view the new expanded canal locks that are scheduled to be open for use in April.“It is incumbent upon farmers to not only be knowledgeable of and passionate about the supply and demand side of their industry. Farmers must also be knowledgeable of and passionate about the transportation system that allows supply to connect with demand,” said Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Soy Transportation Coalition. “The Panama Canal — both the current and future expanded canal — is an important artery that allows the U.S. soybean industry to be so competitive in the international marketplace. Farmers need to understand this key link in our logistics chain, which will hopefully serve to increase our resolve and motivation to demand that our nation appropriately invests in our own transportation system. If we fail to make these investments in our ports, inland waterways, railroads, and roads and bridges, the expanded Panama Canal will truly be a missed opportunity.”There particularly importance with the canal expansion for Magyar specifically, who grows food grade soybeans for export from his farm in Ashtabula County.“I grow all food grade beans, but we also have a storage facility where we take commercial beans. I work with Western Reserve and we have 750,000 bushels of storage. I use our old facility to keep the food grade beans segregated,” Magyar said. “This will potentially lower shipping costs, particularly on container shipments to the Asian markets and also possibly the Eastern European markets where they are very interested in non-GMO beans. The U.S is still the most reliable supply of soybeans and this will help us get our soybeans to the end user at a lower cost.”The Panama Canal is even more valuable to eastern U.S. agriculture due to the West Coast shipping slowdowns resulting from ongoing labor disputes between the Pacific Maritime Association, which represents companies that own West Coast ports, and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, which represents dock workers.“Ohio food grade soybeans are preferred in Asian markets, but our shipping costs have typically been the highest because they had to go by rail to the West Coast. But now, neither the customers nor the sellers want to deal with shipping through the West Coast because of all the issues they are having with labor out there. They are having so many problems shipping from the Pacific Northwest on the West Coast to Asia that more of our soybeans are going to be leaving from the Mississippi or the East Coast. They are saying that maybe the problems on the West Coast cannot be fixed,” Magyar said. “Now they are expanding the ports of Savannah and others and dredging them out to accommodate the new big ships that can go through the new Panama Canal. It is on the drawing board to get some of these ships that can utilize the new expanded canal into more American ports. There are half a dozen or so of these projects if the funding from Congress comes through. With the new canal for these big ships, we’ve got to be able to get them in our ports and nobody can rely on the West Coast ports right now because of the volatility there. Railroads have also been unreliable with the oil coming out of the Dakotas and that has been another issue with sending beans west.”In the end, the Panama Canal expansion will simply provide one more much-needed transportation advantage in the increasingly competitive world of agriculture, Steenhoek said.“With the expansion in the Panama Canal, we will be able to load ocean vessels that hold easily 500,000 more bushels of soybean per vessel. A typical ocean vessel today is loaded with 2.1 or 2.2 million bushels, so adding 500,000 bushels is substantial,” he said. “This is just shaving cents off the eventual delivered price at a time when agriculture is facing some headwinds from a strengthening U.S. dollar, a devaluation of the Brazilian Real, and a softening economy in China. This is a wonderful opportunity to provide benefits to U.S. agriculture by making our transportation system more efficient and making ourselves more competitive in the international marketplace.”For more on transportation and the Panama Canal, visit: soytransportation.org/issues.last_img read more

Should TED Ban Marketing Pitches? Google Glass Talk Was Pure Promotion

first_imgSergey Brin’s Google Glass presentation at last week’s TED2013 conference came off as little more than a product pitch. Wearing his “Google Glass” throughout the presentation, Brin begins by noting that “when we (Brin and Larry Page) started Google 15 years ago, my vision was that information would come to you as you need it. You wouldn’t have to search query at all.”The implication to all in attendance at TED2013 was clear: Google Glass delivers on the lofty Google vision.  Is that the right approach for the TED Conferences?Non-Profit For Whom?TED bill itself as “a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.” In TED presentations and videos, seen by millions, these ideas range from unlocking new opportunities to improving global health, stopping the spread of violence, combatting global warming and crafting new ways to support the arts in the 21st Century. TED talks can be moving, inspiring, provocative, informative. Brin’s presentation, however, could also be classified as marketing. Google Glass is Google’s much-hyped voice-activated eyewear headset. As ReadWrite has documented, Google has been aggressively promoting Google Glass for the past year. In April, Google debuted “Project Glass” on Google Plus. That same month, Brin promoted the devices at a charity event for fighting blindness. In May, Google generated significant buzz at Google I/O when it streamed video from a skydiver wearing the device. Just last month, Google launched the #ifihadglass campaign, a contest to determine who will win the chance to be among the very first to buy Google Glass – for $1,500.   Brin’s TED presentation included more of the same, going so far as to mock smartphones and even smartphone users: Is the future of connection just people walking around hunched up, looking down, rubbing a featureless piece of glass? It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?While many pundits were quick to pounce on Brin’s use of the word ‘emasculating,’ the question not asked was whether TED should have allowed his talk at all. For its part, TED seems to have no problem with Google’s pitch. Brin was joined onstage by TED’s “curator,” Chris Anderson. Anderson’s question was effectively the stuff of late-night informercials: “How much and when?” Though Google Glass is not yet available for purchase, the TED site links directly  to a nearly year-old Google video that starkly promotes the technology – along with the benefits of Google Maps and Google+. “Check out how Glass works,” TED states.  If the video is to be believed, Google Glass works really, really well. Until the product is available, however, we’ll have to take Google’s word for it. Tags:#Google#Google Glass#privacy#TED 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… brian s hall Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts While Google’s augmented-reality glasses do seem potentially revolutionary, there is a danger that such obviously self-serving presentations from large corporations could ultimately hurt the TED brand. Changing The World – At $1,500 A PopThe TED blog site does include a link to an external post decrying the potential privacy violations of Google Glass. This is likely not enough to overcome the perception that TED has essentially provided a seal of approval for the product. According to the non-profit TED: The goal of the foundation is to foster the spread of great ideas. An idea can be created out of nothing except an inspired imagination.An idea weighs nothing.It can be transferred across the world at the speed of light for virtually zero cost.It seems difficult to equate that goal with what, intended or not, serves as a commercial for an upcoming Google product, priced at $1,500 – a princely sum for much of the world.NOTE: TED has not yet posted the video of Sergey Brin’s Google Glass presentation. Lead image from the Google Glass video.  IT + Project Management: A Love Affairlast_img read more

Interview: The First Filmmakers to Shoot with the Canon C200

first_imgGet insights from the director and DP behind Canon’s From Dock to Dish.Images via Canon Pro.When the Canon C200 was first announced, the camera manufacturer released the short documentary, From Dock to Dish. We had the chance to interview Director Andrew Fried and Director of Photography Bryant Fisher to discuss their experience shooting and working with the Canon C200. Here’s what we learned.PB: Andrew Fried, From Dock to Dish is a beautiful film. Why did you gravitate toward this concept to highlight the new features of the Canon C200?Andrew: Over the last few years, I have had the distinct privilege to spend time filming in some of the best restaurants in the world. I’ve been consumed lately with the idea that so many people come to these restaurants, enjoy such a special experience and loft such high praise about the food that they’ve eaten, but rarely look past their plate to truly consider all of the people that have played a role in bringing this food to their table. That was the seed of the idea here: to see the entire process and everyone who is truly involved from start to finish.PB: Bryant Fisher, the concept behind “From Dock to Dish” features a lot of different lighting scenarios. What was it like to know you’d be testing and challenging this new camera in a variety of scenarios?Bryant: This was an exciting challenge to me. I’ve used Canon cameras in the past and know they hold up in well in all kinds of scenarios. I wanted to see what Canon packed into this new camera to handle those kinds of scenarios even better. The C200 gave us a very rich image with hardly any help in front of the lens. It felt very consistent and natural with its color and exposure handling.PB: The Cinema RAW Light is an exciting new feature. Why was this a valuable tool for you and for other filmmakers?Bryant: The Cinema RAW Light format is a big step forward for Canon. I think it speaks largely to where they are putting their focus. I hope they implement this format in all of their cinema cameras down the line. You are getting a 12bit 4K image at around 1gbps data rate. Thats an enormous amount of information to capture, but they’ve managed to get it to 1/3-1/5 the size of typical RAW. This is exciting and empowering to filmmakers because for the first time, you have this format as a real option at a relatively low price point. For us, it only strengthened our film to help illustrate the colorful journey of our fish.PB: How was working with the Canon ecosystem of products from the camera to the lenses and monitors?Andrew: As a filmmaker, we each have our own set of gear that we like to bring out with us in the field. Generally, it’s pieced together from things made by different manufacturers, and often it can be a challenge for the camera team to “make it all work together.” Going out with only Canon gear actually made it a whole lot easier in the field. As much as we all hold on to the tools that we have always worked with, the Canon lenses actually do complement the Canon camera nicely, and having the Canon monitor with us out in the field was really beneficial. The pieces all do actually want to work together, which at the very least, makes the AC’s day a whole lot more efficient.Bryant: It is exactly that. An ecosystem. Canon seems to be focusing on capturing quality in the image and its evident through the whole pipeline. The lenses work well and interact with their cameras. The images display very well on their monitors. We sent an ungraded LOG 3 image to their 2420 Reference Display, and it debayered that signal to show us a rec2020 image. It was seamless integration.PB: 4K at 60fps is refreshing to see on this camera. How useful was this for the film and how did it perform?Andrew: We were really happy with how the 60-frame footage looked in post. I think it held up really nicely and being able to shoot high speed at 4K is a huge benefit at this point.Bryant: This was a very useful feature. We could easily switch right into 59.94 and then slow it down later in post. The image looks graceful and showed no signs of blocking or pattern issues. It performed quite well for us.PB: What types of projects do you see the Canon C200 excelling at?Bryant: The gear is only getting better. I see the C200 excelling in many different situations. You can use it on virtually anything as long as you can handle the data. They’ve kept the form factor small enough that you could throw a nice prime or even L series zoom on it and go rogue or you can build it out for a studio type configuration. The possibilities are almost endless. You can see in our BTS we had it in a few different configurations to achieve different shots, and that’s because of its small size.Andrew: The C200 offers a really high end look and color spectrum, while maintaining a relatively small footprint.  I can see using this on a variety of projects, especially those that want to balance the flexibility of a verité approach with more high-end, commercial cinematography.PB: Bryant, how did the C200 perform with skin tones and overall image quality?Bryant: Canon is known for their color science. They’ve certainly kept true to that with the C200. And that is only enhanced further with the RAW Light format. Having a 12bit image to push around later gives tremendous flexibility to achieve any kind of look you may want. We were going for something very natural and clean. We got that and some with this camera.PB: Bryant, I noticed you had a lot of gimbal shots in the film. How was the process of setting up the camera with the gimbal?Bryant: It was like setting up any other camera. The exciting thing about the C200 was its size and weight. It didn’t take very long to balance because it’s all conveniently packed into a small body. The gimbals we used had no trouble with it.PB: What surprised you the most about working with the Canon C200?Andrew: Honestly, my only pleasant surprise was that everything worked so well on the prototype camera.  I was so worried that we would get this un-tested camera out in the field and it just wouldn’t work.  Thankfully, I had nothing to worry about.  It all worked perfectly.Bryant: The most surprising thing to me was the level of detail the camera captures especially with the RAW Light format. When you see the image for yourself on a proper display, it’s really stunning. It’s refreshing to see the level of color and soft sharpness (if that makes sense) this camera delivers.How do you feel about the new C200? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more
