The Trump administration is moving to sell leases in ANWR, but will anyone show up for a sale?

first_imgAlaska’s Energy Desk | Energy & Mining | Environment | Federal Government | Government | North Slope | WildlifeThe Trump administration is moving to sell leases in ANWR, but will anyone show up for a sale?November 24, 2020 by Tegan Hanlon, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Anchorage Share:Caribou graze on the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, with the Brooks Range as a backdrop. (USFWS)The battle over oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain has dragged on for decades.And now, the Trump administration is close to auctioning off drilling rights for the land in northeast Alaska — potentially just days before President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.But there’s a big, unanswered question looming over the idea of a sale: To what degree will the industry actually participate?Oil and gas companies aren’t talking publicly about whether they’d bid. And Kara Moriarty, head of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, said that’s not surprising.“Participation in lease sales is one of the most competitive and secretive things between companies,” she said. “So I don’t know who is interested in participating in a state lease sale, any more than I know who is interested in participating in the next NPR-A lease sale, or in the coastal plain of ANWR.”The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain is shown in orange. The area covers about 1.6 million area, roughly the size of Delaware, and makes up about 8% of the refuge. (USGS map)Moriarty said the public likely won’t have the full picture of industry interest until the federal government unseals the bids on the day of a sale. A sale date has not been announced yet, but the way the government’s timelines work, one could be held just before Inauguration Day.And while oil and gas companies are mum, industry experts and analysts do have a read on what a lease sale might look like.“My view is that any response will be fairly lukewarm,” said Rowena Gunn, an analyst for the energy research firm Wood Mackenzie.Alaska politicians and industry groups have long fought to get drill rigs on the coastal plain, which is thought to hold billions of barrels of oil, but Gunn and others say there’s currently a layer of uncertainty and risk that could lead to limited interest in a lease sale if one happens within the next couple months.“They’ll probably get some bids,” said Larry Persily, an oil industry observer and former federal coordinator for Alaska gas line projects under President Barack Obama. “But even at fire-sale prices, there probably won’t be a rush of interest.”That’s for a number of reasons, he said.One of them is money.The coronavirus pandemic and an oil price war have both hit the oil industry hard. Oil prices are still low, and it’s expensive and difficult to explore for oil in the Arctic, said Mark Myers, a geologist and former natural resources commissioner in Alaska.“The prices have fallen down to a level that leaves very little capital for exploration in these companies,” Myers said. “So that’s one of the biggest negatives.”Also, there’s the opposition, Gunn said, which may weigh more heavily on publicly-traded companies.“There’s a certain amount of public opinion that it wouldn’t necessarily be good PR for them to be seen as drilling in the Arctic or drilling in environmentally-sensitive areas,” she said.While some, including Alaska’s congressional delegation, have celebrated the prospect of a lease sale as a way to create more jobs and revenue for the state, others are fighting to keep oil and gas companies out of the refuge, citing concerns about impacts on ecosystems, Indigenous people and the climate.Indigenous and conservation groups have already filed multiple lawsuits that aim to block drilling in the coastal plain. They’re asking major insurers to not support any oil and gas projects in the refuge. And an array of big banks have already said they won’t fund new oil and gas projects in the Arctic.There’s a list of other reasons too why some analysts say they wouldn’t expect a deluge of bids.That includes future demand for oil.Colorado-based energy economist Philip Verleger said he thinks a lease sale in the refuge 15 years ago would have been “terrifically successful,” but, he said, he thinks the time to develop the coastal plain has passed.“I do not think ANWR is ever going to be produced,” he said. “The cost of going there and developing and putting the resources in is too high, particularly since the production would last a long time, and we don’t know if demand would last as long.”Gunn also said some of the larger oil companies operating in Alaska are busy with other projects, such as ConocoPhillips’ work in the NPR-A and Hilcorp taking over oil fields at Prudhoe Bay.Both companies declined to say whether they had plans to participate in a lease sale in the refuge, if one is held. ExxonMobil also declined to comment for this article.Chevron said it would consider it “in the context of its global exploration portfolio.” Oil Search said it is “focused on developing the Pikka project and exploring our current leases.”Perhaps the biggest uncertainty of all that the industry is facing is the changing administration.Biden has said he opposes drilling in the refuge.Andy Mack, another former Alaska natural resources commissioner, said even if the Trump administration issues leases before leaving office, Biden’s administration could delay the permits that companies need to search for oil and build their infrastructure.“What they would try to do is make it so difficult, so onerous, to get the array of permits that the companies just kind of say, ‘Well, we’re not going to spend 10 years just trying to get a simple permit, we’re going to put our money and our investment elsewhere,’” Mack said.However, Mack said, it’s also possible companies could secure leases and just wait for the administration to change again.He and Myers underscored that the flip side of all this is that the refuge is still thought to hold a whole lot of oil. And, for some companies, that payoff could outweigh any risk or uncertainty.Share this story:last_img read more

News / FMC set to review ‘costly and unfair’ demurrage and detention fees

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 09/09/2019 The US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is backing proposals aimed at reforming how demurrage and detention fees are levied by ocean carriers on shippers. The main change would be that charges be suspended in cases when shippers and their 3PLs are prevented from moving cargo out of terminals by factors beyond their control. Following an 18-month investigation into the topic by FMC commissioner Rebecca Dye, the FMC announced on Friday it had formally adopted her recommendations. Ms Dye proposed the FMC adopts an “interpretive rule that clarifies how the commission will assess the reasonableness of demurrage and detention practices”. She said in a letter to the commission: “The rule flows from the longstanding principle that practices imposed by tariffs, which are implied contracts by law, must be tailored to meet their intended purpose. “In the case of demurrage and detention charges, the purpose is to act as financial incentives to cargo interests to retrieve cargo and return equipment. “These financial incentives operate to ensure that cargo interests do everything customarily required to be positioned to retrieve cargo and return equipment within the time allotted.  “Absent extenuating circumstances, however, when incentives no longer function because shippers are prevented from picking up cargo or returning containers within time allotted, charges should be suspended.  “Focusing on this incentive principle and cargo availability and supporting innovations such as a ‘push notice’ of container availability, will improve port performance and overall freight delivery system effectiveness,” she added. The proposal has been welcomed by at the least one major shipper body, the Agricultural Transportation Coalition (AgTC), which represents the vast US food exporting industry. “This is a long-awaited step forward to address one of the most costly and unfair burdens imposed by ocean carriers on shippers,” AgTC said on Friday. “Ocean carriers have made ‘free-time‘ (demurrage, detention, per diem) penalties a major cost for importers and exporters and their truckers, often threatening to lock out truckers who don’t immediately pay, and making shippers’ protest/challenges extremely difficult.  “Virtually all shippers have been assessed these penalties, ranging from $125/ to as high as $325/container per day. Some AgTC members have had millions of dollars of these penalties imposed, even when delay was not their fault, due to closed terminals, congestion in the terminals, delays at terminal gates, Customs inspections, etc,” it added. The issue of demurrage and detention at terminals on the US west coast were thrown into sharp relief earlier this year when port congestion mounted as importers desperately tried to bring cargo into the country ahead of the implementation of new tariffs on Chinese goods. Other proposals from Ms Dye include the establishment of a shipper advisory board to report on how FMC policies are effecting US importers and exporters, as well as the continued support of the Memphis Supply Chain Innovation Team, which is currently working on a project to “improve chassis availability at the railheads in that city via the establishment of a ‘grey pool’ of equipment”.last_img read more

OSC upholds IIROC disciplinary decision

first_imgJames Langton An Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) hearing panel has upheld a disciplinary decision of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) against a former rep Earl Marek. Earlier this year, IIROC found that Marek violated securities rules by facilitating off-book trades for two investors (namely trading in the initial public offering of Facebook Inc.). It ordered Marek be suspended for one year and pay a $50,000 fine. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media PwC alleges deleted emails, unusual transactions in Bridging Finance case According to the OSC decision released Tuesday, Market argued that the IIROC decision was wrong to conclude the trades in question involved clients. In hearing the appeal, the OSC notes that the term “client” is not specifically defined in securities law. So, regulators must decide whether the investors in question were clients based on the circumstances of their dealings. The OSC panel ruled that IIROC was correct in concluding that, in the circumstances, Marek was dealing with clients. For example, the OSC panel noted that Marek recommended the purchase of the Facebook IPO to the two investors; he told them that the trades would go through his dealer, Macquarie Private Wealth Inc.; and he told them that he hoped the transaction was the beginning of a longer-term relationship. Additionally, the investors “reasonably believed that they were clients of Mr. Marek and of Macquarie, and there is no evidence that Mr. Marek did anything at the time of the transaction to disabuse them of that understanding,” the OSC panel stated in its decision.

Skyview’s Mikelle Anthony takes a mental health break

first_imgA standout athlete for years, Mikelle Anthony and her family could pretty much bank on her earning a full-ride scholarship.In November, she made it official. A senior at Skyview, Anthony signed with the University of Nevada Las Vegas.Her mother, Kim, also played softball there. Her father, Charles, played football there. They met there. And the plan was for their youngest daughter to excel there, as well. This was the perfect story. Or so it seemed.Mikelle Anthony of Skyview gave up a scholarship to play softball at UNLV in order to focus on her mental health. She plans to attend Washington State University to focus on her studies. Photo courtesy Curt Davis PhotographyMikelle Anthony of Skyview gave up a scholarship to play softball at UNLV in order to focus on her mental health. She plans to attend Washington State University to focus on her studies. Photo courtesy Curt Davis PhotographyMikelle Anthony, though, was consumed with the pressures of being a Division-I athlete. Those thoughts, late at night, put her into a panic.Earlier this spring, Mikelle gave up that scholarship.“As soon as I made the decision, there was a huge ‘let-go’ of anxiety,” she said. “I felt so much better. I haven’t really looked back. I haven’t felt my decision was wrong. I feel good about it.”Medical experts say experiencing anxiety is a normal part of life. For some, though, it can become abnormal, when people can be overcome with a persistent fear.“Overarching doom,” Anthony described. That can lead to what some call panic attacks. Or, as her mom called it, a “full-blown anxiety crisis.”For Mikelle, it starts with a numbness in her arms or the back of her legs. During one event this spring, she fell to the ground. She was breathing heavy. Crying. She said she was not able to think clearly.“My whole body aches, almost like a cramp, but in every part of my body,” Anthony said.She had made up her mind.Instead of softball, Mikelle wants to focus on her studies. She plans on being a college student, still. But not an athlete. She doesn’t mind going away from home. In fact, she intends to go to Washington State University in Pullman where she will be roommates with a close friend.“I’m here for education, and I can focus on this,” Anthony said. “In my mind, that’s less anxiety.”Mikelle started having reservations about being a college athlete soon after she decided to go to UNLV. Her parents wondered if Mikelle was developing typical pre-college nerves. Kim Anthony also admitted she initially worried about the costs, how she did not want her daughter to incur debt to attend college. Four years of out-of-state tuition at UNLV adds up to close to $100,000.“I would say, ‘Mikelle … we’re going to figure this out,’” Kim Anthony said.Her parents also got Mikelle some counseling.“It didn’t help,” Kim said. “I thought I was helping, getting her counseling and letting her work it out.”It turns out, Kim and Charles had already helped their daughter — with the love they always gave her. Mikelle never felt the pressure from her parents to play. Oh, it was talked about, how the scholarship would benefit any bank account. But Mikelle never felt forced into keeping the scholarship.“I knew they’d end up being OK with it. I knew it was going to be hard to make the decision. I always knew, at the end, everything was going to be OK with them,” Mikelle said.“Mikelle is a very independent spirit,” Kim said. “She’s always been mature beyond her years.”Other softball coaches used to ask her to specialize in that sport. No way. Mikelle played basketball, tried soccer and gymnastics, and even was a cheerleader for a time at Skyview. What is the point of being a kid if she can’t do all the fun things, she asked her mom once.“Just being in one lane is not Mikelle’s deal,” Kim said.Her parents always had her back, Mikelle said. Even after Mikelle told her immediate family about her decision, she still had a phone call to make. And until that phone call was made to UNLV coach Kristie Fox, Mikelle still had that scholarship.“Up until then, I think my parents never thought I would ever have the courage to call her,” Mikelle said with a laugh.Fox and Mikelle did speak. “She said, ‘I would never have an athlete come who is going to put her mental health at risk,” Mikelle said. “I was very grateful. She was very understanding.”Mikelle Anthony was released from her scholarship.The most difficult part of this process, Mikelle said, has been telling other people. She has had friends and extended family ask her how excited she is to be going to UNLV.“Well, let me tell you …” Mikelle would begin, preparing to try to explain that she gave up that opportunity.The plan now is WSU as a student only. Mikelle said she will leave her options open. One day, maybe, she will return to the game. She is, after all, bummed that her senior season at Skyview got wiped away by the pandemic. As far as her immediate future, without the game, she is at peace.Mikelle Anthony also has advice to any other athlete with doubts. Don’t listen to the folks who think you are crazy and question your motives. “You’re the only person who knows your heart and how you feel,” she said. “Not to ignore everybody, but ignore everybody’s opinions. It’s how you feel at the end of the day. They’re not the ones who are going to be playing or go to that college for you.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Some recreational fishing reopens in Washington Next : Clark County Superior Court updates modifications to operationsAdvertisementThis is placeholder text Skyview’s Mikelle Anthony takes a mental health breakPosted by Paul ValenciaDate: Wednesday, May 6, 2020in: Sportsshare 0 Softball star gives back full scholarship in order to focus on her well being and her studieslast_img read more

New electric Hummer’s reveal delayed, but on-sale date hasn’t changed: GM

first_img We previously reported the Hummer SUV would receive a targa-style roof with panels that could be stowed in the frunk, and it looks like GMC is doing its best to make that a reality. A convertible electric SUV would also mark a green alternative to the Jeep Wrangler and upcoming Ford Bronco.The Hummer brand is mostly associated with its military-derived gas-guzzling SUVs (they actually had diesel engines, in Army guise) but its revitalization as an upscale electric brand will hopefully give General Motors a unique platform on which to base its first entries into the premium EV utility segment. ‹ Previous Next › The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever advertisement Trending in Canada Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 GM’s new Hummer EV will allegedly “bring bold design and remarkable capability to the electrified vehicle space.”  Hummer RELATED TAGSHUMMERNon-LuxuryNew VehiclesNon-Luxury Yes, General Motors is still reviving the Hummer nameplate as an electric brand, but the vehicle’s planned public reveal is now delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.The planned May 20 reveal has been set back, though the actual vehicle production launch date has not. GM says development of the Hummer is still on track for a late 2021 market debut as a 2022 model, and we’re now learning a little but more about the vehicle besides its headlights.In a teaser video, a Hummer is shown driving through a forest with beautiful, healthy, green trees, but there’s something weirder about this scene than the juxtaposition of a Hummer and copious amounts of breathable air — the truck’s roof. The interior and all four seats of the vehicle are visible, hinting the roof must be removable. The Hummer by GMC will feature 1,000 horspower and 11,500 lb.-ft. of torque (at the wheels, not the crank) and should make the sprint to 96 km/h in around 3.0 seconds.

‘Place-Based Education’ To Be Topic Of April 3 CU-Boulder Lecture

first_imgA teaching technique called “place-based education” that uses the local community and environment as a starting point to teach an array of disciplines will be the topic of a University of Colorado at Boulder lecture on Thursday, April 3.Statistical evidence shows that place-based education has transformed entire school cultures and helped students and teachers become more excited about learning by getting them engaged in their local communities.Michael Duffin, co-founder of PEER Associates of Richmond, Vt., will speak on “Using the Local Community as Classroom and Curriculum” at 6:30 p.m. in the Eaton Humanities Building, room 1B50. The talk is free and open to the public.Duffin will present stories and research-based evidence about lessons learned from his years in the field as an evaluator of place-based education programs. He’ll also address how they can be used to teach language arts, math, social studies, science and other subjects.About 20 CU-Boulder students are using place-based education concepts this semester in an after-school design class they organized at Casey Middle School to teach basic principles of ecological design.Duffin’s talk is co-sponsored by CU-Boulder’s College of Architecture and Planning, the Children, Youth and Environments Center for Research and Design, the Environmental Center, Environmental Studies Program and the CU-Boulder Outreach Committee. Collaborators include Casey Middle School of the Boulder Valley School District, the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education and the CU-Boulder School of Education.For more information call 303-492-5228.
