EMGS to carry out EM survey in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico

first_img[mappress]Press Release, February 10, 2014 EMGS will soon begin acquisition of a 3D multi-client Electromagnetic survey called Daybreak, which covers approximately 1850 km2 in the Alaminos Canyon area, southern US Gulf Mexico.The Norwegian surveyor will acquire both DHI resistivity data as well as provide deeper structural imaging data to be integrated with and improve sub-salt seismic imaging in the region.“The Daybreak project is the first phase in a planned multiphase, multi-client program in the Alaminos Canyon and southern US Gulf of Mexico for EMGS.

ALE executes pit move

first_imgThe storage system consisted of a concrete pit, weighing 304 tonnes, and a 90-tonne lid.To lift the units ALE mobilised a gantry system, which includes jacking points that can operate in unison for optimum control and safety. Once the pit was raised, SPMTs were positioned beneath in preparation for onward transportation.The pit was moved approximately 2 miles (3.22 km) along public roads and across the project site. Due to the smaller size of the lid, ALE said the transport for this component was able to use a much shorter and more direct route.www.ale-heavylift.comlast_img read more

 

Advice vacuum looms on special educational needs

first_imgThe Legal Aid Agency has announced that it will not be awarding any civil legal advice contracts for education and discrimination services after 1 September, after receiving ‘insufficient compliant tenders’.A spokesperson for the agency told the Gazette that it is ‘putting plans in place’ to ensure continued provision after 1 September and will set out its approach shortly.Families can seek government-funded advice and assistance on discrimination and special educational needs only through the telephone service, which was introduced in 2013 under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act.According to government figures, only one client received face-to-face advice in an education matter through the gateway in the 2016/17 financial year. No one received face-to-face advice in the area of discrimination law.In 2015 Public Law Project, a charity, published a report showing that the number of special educational needs and discrimination matters through the telephone gateway service was significantly lower than evidenced in figures provided in former Legal Services Commission tenders for gateway services.The project said last week that the time had come for the Ministry of Justice to recognise that the gateway and associated services do not deliver access to justice or value for money. ‘Our strongly held view is that the MoJ should abandon the [gateway] for these areas of law,’ the charity said. ‘In any event, the lord chancellor now needs to make clear how he proposes to secure that legal aid is made available in discrimination cases, in accordance with his statutory duty.’last_img read more
