Source Energy takes in 175 million in largest oil and gas sector

CALGARY – Source Energy Services has closed a $175-million financing in the first substantial initial public offering in the oil and gas sector in two-and-a-half years.The Calgary-based company, one of the largest suppliers of speciality sand to Canada’s fracking industry, issued 16.7 million shares at $10.50 each in the listing.Source had initially aimed to raise about $300 million by offering shares at somewhere between $17 and $20, but shelved the plan because of what it said were adverse capital market conditions.The listing is the first for the oil and gas sector since Seven Generations Energy raised $932 million in Oct. 2014, save for some minor listings of a few million dollars.The Seven Generations listing was the last of a series of high-profile public offerings in the sector, including PrairieSky Royalty’s $1.7-billion listing, before the oil price crash put further IPOs on hold.Source Energy expects to see a significant increase in demand for its product this year as fracking operations ramp up both the amount of sand used per well, and the total number of wells fracked. by The Canadian Press Posted Apr 13, 2017 2:20 pm MDT Last Updated Apr 13, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Source Energy takes in $175 million in largest oil and gas sector IPO since 2014 read more

Alesha MacPhails mother says teenage killers bid to cut his sentence is

The mother of Alesha MacPhail has pleaded with judges not to reduce the 27-year sentence handed to her daughter’s teenage killer.Aaron Campbell, 17, was jailed for life after abducting, raping and murdering the six-year-old schoolgirl, who was on holiday visiting her father and grandparents on the Isle of Bute.He snatched Alesha from her bed on July 2 last year before assaulting and killing her in woodland nearby. He told the child he was a friend of her father and he was taking her home.He was ordered in March to serve a minimum of 27 years in prison but will appeal against the length of the sentence on Wednesday before three judges at the Criminal Appeal Court in Edinburgh.His legal team is expected to argue that he is too young to be handed such a long sentence.Georgina Lochrane, Alesha’s mother, said in a statement on her “Justice for Alesha” page on Facebook that the claim was “laughable”. “Do not give him any more of the attention he craves because that is just what all this is about, attention.”Campbell denied murdering Alesha during his nine-day trial before confessing after being found guilty. Aaron Campbell is appealing against the length of his sentenceCredit:PA She added that the justice system now had a chance to make an example of Campbell – by potentially increasing his sentence – and urged the court to “grasp it with both hands”.Ms Lochrane, 24, from Airdrie, wrote: “We do not have any insight as to what the outcome will be on Wednesday and what will take place other than our prayers and hopes that our justice system does not fail Alesha or listen to his bull****. Georgina Lochrane wants to see Campbell’s sentence increasedCredit:Andrew Milligan/PA aaron campbell In a shocking series of admissions while background reports were being prepared before sentencing he declared himself “quite satisfied” with the murder and claimed he found it hard to avoid laughing during the trial.Alesha, who suffered 117 injuries in the attack, was only a few days into her summer holiday in Rothesay on Bute, where she was staying with her grandparents and her father, Robert MacPhail.After the schoolgirl’s body was found it was Campbell’s mother who called the police after she realised he had been coming and going from their house on the night of the murder.During the sentencing, the judge Lord Matthews said he was “shocked” when he read the “cold-blooded and horrific” account the killer had given to a psychologist.Campbell is being held at Polmont Young Offenders Institution in Falkirk.

It is, without a doubt, a wise investment your mining exploration team can make.”“Abitibi Geophysics is very proud to present the ARMIT 3. This innovative and high-performance methodology will greatly increase the effectiveness of your surveys,” said Pierre Bérubé at Abitibi Geophysics. Compared to ARMIT 2, it has a sensitivity increase of 25%, is a more stable probe, has an improved signal-to-noise sensor, and allows users to explore deeper.last_img read more

Column Chávez was a charismatic leader but his economic legacy should be

first_imgTHE UNTIMELY DEATH of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez at age 58 has been a deep and scarring shock for his countrymen and followers of his “Bolivarian revolution” over the past 14 years. Cancer is a personal tragedy and Mr Chávez has departed us well before his time was up and his influence spent, having just won a third term as president late last year. It remains to be seen if the socialist revolution he has spearheaded nearly single-handedly will continue in the absence of his oversized personality, when all Venezuelans are left with are failed social programmes and deepening troubles like rampant 30 per cent inflation rates.There has been a common theme following his death in an argument about whether or not Chávez was a dictator. He was no such thing, subjecting himself to elections that were free but, as the secretary general of the main opposition party Ramón Guillermo Aveledo put it before the last one, not fair. Chávez by this stage had come to control the media and would put on party political broadcasts lasting hours while his opponent Henrique Capriles Radonski got three minutes a day.Authoritarian legacyChávez was about as democratic as you could hope from a Lieutenant Colonel who staged a bloody coup attempt in 1992 and ran around in his red paratrooper beret till his last days. The elections weren’t rigged, and voters did deliver a rebuke in one referendum that revolved around allowing him a third term as president. Admittedly he got his way in the end, but who are we to lecture others on what should happen when a government loses a referendum campaign?Human Rights Watch has criticised Chávez for leaving an authoritarian legacy. He centralised power to an incredible degree, set up a parallel parliament after his election to usurp the one he didn’t have a majority in; ruled by decree much of the time and kept official Venezuela under thumb. He had María Lourdes Afiuni, a judge who released a man imprisoned without trial for three years, arrested and charged with supposed crimes against the state. She remains under house arrest after spending a year in prison awaiting trial.There is no gulag archipelago in Venezuela, but like so many statist socialists Chávez found it necessary to centralise power and trample over human rights in order to see through his vision.An attractive – but ultimately hollow – visionPrior to the end of the Cold War socialists in Europe and elsewhere looked to the Eastern Bloc countries as the workers paradises to be idolised and mimicked at home. When that façade crumbled along with the walls used to cage their populations, socialists were cut adrift for most of the 1990s. Then came a series of socialist revivals in Latin America, most notably in Venezuela. Poverty has been a never-ending scourge of the continent and corrupt governments have kept wealth in the hands of the few for decades, so it is of little surprise that people look for a redistributive alternative.Chávez offered such a vision, and people at home and abroad flocked to it. A close ally of Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Chávez used the oil wealth of Venezuela to kick off massive social programmes that have seen top line rates of poverty and deprivation fall in the country. Nevertheless his time in power has seen the creation of yet another hollow statist system, where industry is nationalised and withers; foreign investment flees; and grand social projects turn out to be massive white elephants. Underneath the façade there is a country with soaring inflation, crime rates and corruption.In the wake of his referendum rebuke in 2007 , The Economist visited some of the collective projects underway and discovered one reason why Venezuelans might have seen fit to give their president a drubbing. A model collective farm failed and its workers forced to seek income elsewhere when the state-guided plan for what to plant went awry. Elsewhere a fishing processing plant stood idle because the planned wharf didn’t come to fruition (albeit, reminding me somewhat of the famous IKEA road in Ballymun. Governments the world over…).Another failed experimentThe statist approach to control of everything brings to mind Milton Friedman’s life of a pencil, in which he described the massive complexity of putting together a seemingly simple and humble pencil; and essentially asking the rhetorical question, “Imagine if someone tried to organise that?” Venezuela has joined a long list of failed socialist states that have attempted to answer it.One of the leaders of the collective farm, Jacobo Pacheco, told the paper that he had seen receipts to indicate that between them the officials and supplier involved pocketed 1 billion bolívares ($465,000) for the uncompleted work. Corruption is rife in the country, with party apparatchiks dong as they tend to do everywhere in the world – free reign is given over government spending and trousering as much as possible.At home we’d do well to consider the lessons of Venezuela’s flirtation with a hard brand of socialism, as another failed experiment. Yet, we persist in having academics and politicians at home on the left look to these countries as a model for our own success.Today With Pat Kenny had a discussion on the death of Chávez during the week with Barry Cannon, author of Hugo Chávez and the Bolivarian Revolution, who gave off a whiff of an apologist in the mould of today’s Labour Party leaders who idolised the gangsters running the places like the German Democratic Republic back in the day. When corruption was mentioned, he told listeners that Ireland suffers from it as well as Venezuela. When it was pointed out that Ireland ranks 25th on the world corruption index and Venezuela 165th he challenged the methodology of Transparency International’s survey; just like he challenged the statistics about Venezuela’s squandered oil wealth and the reality of failed social programmes as reported by another journalist who was in the country.It’s always some sort of capitalist imperial conspiracy to either distort the numbers or, in the face of incontrovertible evidence, sabotage the revolution whenever failures of statist socialism are presented for discussion.Brazil: combining a free market approach with social equalityVenezuelans and Irish socialists would do better to look to Brazil, where a free market approach is combined with a drive towards social equality. Let the free market do its bit to provide the wealth to pay for the social programmes. Previously a Chávez acolyte, Peruvian president Ollanta Humala has come full circle from hard-line statist to follower of Brazil’s model. That country is booming, while Venezuela took two years longer than its neighbours to emerge from the world recession despite its massive oil wealth, now mortgaged away to the Chinese in return for cash today.We’ve lost a colourful world leader and Venezuelans a charismatic comandante who, for all his ideological faults, did seem to have their best interests at heart. Now would be a good time to take a sober look at his economic legacy and consider it a warning against the preaching of our own left wing brigades.Aaron McKenna is a businessman and a columnist for TheJournal.ie.

Cyprus shipping a high priority for the government

first_imgPresident Anastasiades expressed his government’s strong commitment to reinforcing the Cypriot maritime cluster and supporting the shipowners with vessels under the Cyprus flag.During his speech at the Dinner of the Cyprus Union of Shipowners, held in Athens, on Tuesday, President Anastasiades underlined the leading role that Cypriot shipping has played in the economic recovery of Cyprus, boosting decisively the economic growth in the country.The innovative planning and further development of this important sector, represent high priorities for the Cypriot government, said President Anastasiades. He also referred to the importance of the newly established Deputy Ministry of Shipping of the Republic of Cyprus as an institution capable to enhance the shipping administration of Cyprus and to ensure a well-structured strategic planning in the Cypriot maritime cluster.Furthermore, President Anastasiades highlighted the importance of a competitive tax regime for shipping, which was enhanced in Cyprus despite the economic crisis, through tax advantages and other provisions, which facilitate the shipping activities. ‘These provisions have contributed to the ranking of Cyprus as the 11th largest merchant fleet worldwide and the 3rd largest in the EU. At the same time, Cyprus has one of the biggest centers for ship management’, he said.Anastasiades also stressed the new challenges and opportunities emerging from the discovery of important hydrocarbon deposits in Cyprus’ EEZ and in the broader region.
