Oil and gas company Aker Energy has postponed the development of its Pecan field, located offshore Ghana. As a result, Aker Energy terminated its agreement with Yinson for the provision of an FPSO for the project. Pecan field layout; Source: Aker EnergyAker Energy’s plan was to develop the Pecan field with a purpose-built FPSO connected to a subsea production system at 2,400 meters below sea level.With that in mind, Aker Energy last February entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Yinson to award a bareboat charter and an operations and maintenance contract for an FPSO vessel at the Pecan field, which is located in the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) block offshore Ghana.The contracts would have been for a firm duration of ten years followed by five yearly extension options exercisable by Aker Energy as the operator on behalf of the license partners Lukoil, Fueltrade, and Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC).However, Malaysian FPSO provider Yinson said in an update on Wednesday that Aker Energy had terminated the LOI.The FPSO was supposed to be located over and connect to the subsea production system located at approximately 2,400 meters below sea level. Together, this would form the fourth installation to produce oil and gas resources offshore Ghana.The FPSO would have been Yinson’s second vessel to operate in Ghanaian waters, with the first being FPSO John Agyekum Kufuor, operating for Eni since 2017.According to Yinson, the termination is due to the decision made by Aker Energy to postpone the activities under the DWT/CTP Petroleum agreement and the development of the project until further notice amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.Yinson said it would preserve its right under the letter of intent for compensation due arising from the termination.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

by Garrett Wilson, Sumner Newscow â€” For years the Wellington Lady Crusader basketball team was somewhat of a laughing stock around the AVCTL. Long losing streaks and blowout losses had become the norm.But that changed five years ago when Kevin Hackerott was named girls basketball coach. Now, after numerous wins and a state tournament appearance Hackerott is gone.Â Wellington was again looking for a new coach. Unlike last time when it was looking for someone to take over a struggling program, this time they needed someone who could not only keep the momentum going but exceed the now higher expectations.Eric Adams, a 1988 Wellington High graduate, has been pegged as the man for the job.Adams is a Wellington native who is no stranger to girlsâ€™ athletics at WHS. Eric and his wife Coni have two daughters. Erianne, who graduated in 2012, was a member of the team that went to State that year and also the 2011 State Championship tennis team, and Peyton who is going to be a junior at WHS this coming fall plays softball and tennis for the lady crusaders.Adams spent last year as the leader of the South Haven Lady Cardinals basketball team. In just his first year at the Helm he led the Lady Cards to a league title and birth in the State tournament.It should come as no surprise though. Adams spent nine years as the head coach of the WMS Lady Knights, winning multiple league titles in his time.Adams said it was hard to leave South Haven because of the bond he had formed in such a short time, but that coming to back to his hometown to coach was a dream come true.â€œExcitement, that was it,â€ Adams said when asked what he thought upon being named the new head coach.When it comes to playing style he said that it will be very similar to the brand of basketball fans have become accustomed to seeing.â€œFull court pressure, great defense, and great rebounding,â€ Adams said.Basketball season is still months away but Adams is already hard at work getting ready for the season.The Crusaders have team camp June 2-7, and will also be playing in a league with about 12 other teams from the area. They will be hosting games Monday night June 10th. Adams encourages fans to attend to get a little preview of what the season will hold.The Crusaders will also head to Wichita State for a camp later in the summer.As for what he expects from this season. Adams simply had one thing to say. He wants to continue what has been built.â€œWearing Wellington across your chest in girlsâ€™ basketball means something now,â€ Adams said. â€œAnd I plan on it staying that way.â€So come on out June 10 to support the Crusaders and see what they and their new coach have to offer.
