Oil and gas company Byron Energy has reached hydrocarbons in the South Marsh Island Block 71 F4 well in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.Byron said last week that the well had reached final, total depth of 8,130 feet on February 12.The primary target D5 Upper Sand was penetrated exactly at the predicted depth and the company hit a total of 91 feet measured depth of net hydrocarbon pay (87 feet true vertical thickness) which was at the upper end of predrill expectations.The D5 Upper Sand was penetrated high on structure, exhibits high-quality reservoir characteristics with an average porosity of 30%, a low water saturation, and no water contacts were observed on the logging while drilling (LWD) logs.The company added that the LWD logs indicated the D5 Upper Sand was most likely a high gas content oil and additional isotube analysis was in progress but final hydrocarbon type would not be determined for a period of time after the well was placed into production.Additionally, 11 feet MD (10 feet true vertical thickness) of hydrocarbons were logged in the J1 Sand. The well will be cemented in a manner that would allow the J1 Sand to be produced should it be deemed necessary to efficiently produce the reserves attributed to it.According to Byron, the presence of hydrocarbons in the D5 Upper Sand also validates the company’s geologic model for the entire D5 Sand package as a complex series of amalgamated and stacked sand channels.The SM71 F4 well tested and confirmed an accumulation of hydrocarbon that is stratigraphically separated from the main D5 Sand oil production where the SM71 F1 and F3 wells have combined to produce over 2 million barrels with no formation water from the D5 Sand since production began on March 23, 2018.The company also stated that the D5 Upper Sand was drilled and evaluated 25 percent below budget.Currently, the Enterprise Offshore Drilling 264 (EOD 264) drilling rig is preparing to run seven-inch casing to bottom and once landed, completion operations will begin.The D5 Upper Sand completion will consist of frac-pack sand control measures to minimize pressure drawdown across the perforations and allowing optimized production rates. Completion operations are expected to take 16 days, after which minor work will be needed to the SM71 F platform before the well can be placed into production.Byron is the operator of SM71 and currently has a 50 percent working interest. Otto Energy holds the remaining interest in SM71. It is worth noting that Otto elected not to participate in the SM71 F4 well, giving Byron a 100 percent working interest in the well.Byron’s CEO Maynard Smith said: “The SM71 F4 well has more than met our pre-drill expectations. Once again, Byron’s RTM seismic data has proven to be an extremely accurate tool for finding oil and gas in the South Marsh Island 71 area. The short cycle time to first production will be of great value to us in our SM58 development program.“It’s also very gratifying to drill this well under time and under budget. Our team has made huge strides in finding ways to drill better wells and reduce our risk dollars.”Spotted a typo? Have something more to add to the story? Maybe a nice photo?

The Spanish international’s first clear opening was well saved by England World Cup hopeful Nick Pope low to his right.Pope, though, could arguably have done better when the opening goal arrived on 20 minutes as he punched Victor Moses’s cross into the onrushing Kevin Long and the ball ricocheted off the defender into his own net.Much worse was to come for Morata on the hour mark when he burst clear on goal, but, with just Pope to beat, side-footed wide of the target.That miss looked like it could be the turning point in the game when four minutes later Burnley levelled in fortuitous fashion.Joey Gudmundsson’s long-range effort was heading well wide until it deflected off Ashley Barnes to completely wrong-foot Chelsea ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois.Just minutes later, though, Chelsea retook the lead when Moses fired in low at Pope’s near post from Emerson Palmieri’s cross.Morata then stormed off the field in disgust at himself as he was replaced by Hazard for the final 20 minutes.But despite some delightful touches by the Belgian, Chelsea had to settle for victory by the finest of margins.At the King Power, Leicester manager Claude Puel took his revenge after Southampton sacked the Frenchman despite finishing eighth and reaching the League Cup final last season by pushing his former employers closer to the drop.In a game of few clear-cut chances, Shane Long had Southampton’s best effort as he was denied by a point-blank save by Leicester’s reserve goalkeeper Ben Hamer.At the other end, Alex McCarthy also made a smart stop from Jamie Vardy as Southampton at least stopped a run of four straight league defeats.Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea kept their outside chances of chasing down Tottenham Hotspur for a place in next season’s Champions League alive as a much-changed side secured a 2-1 win at Burnley.At the other end of the table, Southampton crept closer to relegation as a 0-0 draw at Leicester leaves the Saints still four points off safety with just four games remaining to save themselves.Chelsea closed to within five points of fourth-placed Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men also have a kinder run in than their London rivals.Southampton and Chelsea meet for the second time in eight days in a FA Cup semi-final on Sunday after Antonio Conte’s side came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at St. Mary’s on Saturday.And with the Cup representing Chelsea’s last chance at silverware this season, Conte left Eden Hazard and Willian on the bench as Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata started together up front for the first time.Burnley’s opening day 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge was an early indicator as to how the season would develop for both sides with Sean Dyche’s side now dreaming of qualifying for European competition for the first time since 1967.However, Burnley’s hopes of leapfrogging Arsenal into sixth were dealt a blow by a first defeat in seven games. Conte has lamented Chelsea’s inability to take their chances all season, and it was another night to forget for club record signing Morata as he passed up a host of opportunities to score just his third goal of 2018.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick smiles as he answers question during an NFL football press conference on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, in Santa Clara, Calif. Kaepernick received a new six-year contract extension Wednesday that keeps him with the franchise through the 2020 season. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)MIAMI (AP) — San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a downtown hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday.A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed in the hotel room on April 1. Tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted and other evidence backed up the players’ contention that nothing happened.In fact, the memo by Assistant State Attorney Laura Adams described the woman as incoherent when police and fire-rescue officers responded to 911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel. She had to be sedated in order to be taken to the hospital, where she was temporarily involuntarily committed for her own safety, the memo says.“When she heard the officers’ voices, the complainant started screaming incoherently about Jesus and devils,” Adams wrote.A hotel security officer told police that when he arrived at the room, the woman began praying, “asking God to forgive her of her sins” and began screaming in words the security officer couldn’t understand, according to the memo. She banged her head against the walls and started kicking uncontrollably.At the hospital, doctors noted that she was “severely agitated” and appeared to be in an altered mental state, although no evidence of drugs beyond marijuana were detected in her system, Adams wrote. The woman had told police she and the three players had drinks and smoked marijuana earlier in the night.Kaepernick consistently denied any wrongdoing. Earlier this month the 49ers gave the 26-year-old a $126 million, six-year contract extension that will keep him in San Francisco through 2020. He was drafted in 2011 in the second round out of Nevada.The other players in the room that night were 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette.The prosecutor’s memo says that an attorney for Kaepernick and Lockette told investigators they met the woman about a year ago in Atlanta and that she and Kaepernick had sex. The woman later told Kaepernick she was pregnant and he cut off contact with her, including changing his phone number, the memo says.Eventually, she learned Kaepernick and Lockette would be in Miami and made arrangements to visit them, traveling by Greyhound bus. After the woman’s behavior deteriorated, Kaepernick contacted a nearby friend and decided to leave the hotel.“I’m leaving right now I’m terrified,” Kaepernick texted the friend, according to the prosecutor’s memo._____Follow Curt Anderson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Miamicurt
