CGG has completed JumpStart multi-client geoscience packages for the North West Shelf (NWS) of Australia and the Banda Arc in the Asia-Pacific region. Both packages are now available and, according to CGG, enhance understanding of the prospectivity of these two regions, allowing the assessment of new plays.The NWS JumpStart package encompasses the Northern Carnarvon, Roebuck, Browse and Bonaparte basins, where recent Triassic discoveries have heightened industry interest. The new study is said to fill knowledge gaps regarding the region’s Triassic paleogeography and petroleum systems and mitigates exploration risk for clients evaluating Triassic plays in this region.The Banda Arc JumpStart package brings insights into this tectonic region at the collision zone between continental Australia and the Indonesian archipelago where historically little data was available. With new seismic data and interpretation from CGG’s 16,300 km BandaSeis 2D BroadSeis survey, the study addresses significant imaging challenges relating to the complex overburden and below the fold and thrust. It sheds new light on structuring and petroleum system development, including a significant amount of newly identified and evaluated leads and prospects.Mark Richards, senior vice president, Eastern Hemisphere, Multi-Client & New Ventures, CGG, said: “JumpStart packages leverage our extensive multi-disciplinary geoscience resources and expertise to provide the most comprehensive regional studies available. No other company offers this type of easily accessible screening tool to help industry players better understand a region’s geological development and prospectivity and ultimately de-risk emerging plays.”
Man City could benefit from their Champions League ban, according to a football finance expert. Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons UEFA have banned City from competing in the competition for the next two seasons after finding them guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play regulations. City are set to appeal the ban, which if upheld would see the club miss out on millions of pounds and threaten their standing as one of the leading sides in Europe. In addition, there are fears City could face an exodus of their star players, while struggling to attract others to the club. But finance lecturer at the University of Liverpool Kieran Maguire, believes such measures would be unnecessary, and there are some positives City can take from the ruling. “There would be no need for a firesale,” Maguire told the Mail. “They will actually benefit from not being in Europe because FFP limits under UEFA are €30million losses over three years, compared to £105m under Premier League limits.”Advertisement This would enable City to spend more in the transfer market, providing they can balance their books to comply with Premier League guidelines. Nevertheless City CEO Ferran Soriano remains confident the club will be successful on appeal when their case is heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Speaking to the official City website, Soriano said: “Well the most important thing I have to say today is that the allegations are not true. They are simply not true. “We provided the evidence but in the end this FFP Investigatory Chamber relied more on out of context stolen emails than all the other evidence we provided of what actually happened and I think it is normal that we feel like we feel.

Chicago Grey, who was brought down at the fifth in last year’s renewal, heads back to Aintree after a victory in the Red Mills Chase at Navan, and Elliott said on Channel 4’s The Morning Line: “Hopefully he can run a great race.” The veteran pilot, who won the big race on Bobbyjo in 1999, suffered a fall at Fairyhouse on Tuesday and missed his rides at Downpatrick on Wednesday. But he said: “There seems to have have been a big improvement so I’ll be fine. I should be OK for Saturday. I’m not riding today or Friday. I think he’s got a cracking chance – Gordon’s horses are running ever so well at the moment.” Paul Carberry has declared himself fit to partner the Gordon Elliott-trained Chicago Grey in the John Smith’s Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

“I think we have enough experience to do that but obviously Gareth has been very influential and it seems he has been at Everton for a long time – that is how comfortable he looks with the team.” Martinez watched City get taken apart by European champions Bayern Munich in midweek with some admiration. However, he does not think it will have any effect on their game against Manuel Pellegrini’s side. “Bayern are European champions for a reason and they have gone to the next level now,” he said. “For anyone who plays against Bayern it is going to be the biggest football test at club level and you have to admire the way they are playing. “They are taking possession football into a new degree and I thought they were magnificent. “There is never a good or bad time because when you play a top side you know they are going to be ready on the day, they have a really good squad and can make changes and refresh it if they need to. “We know we will have to be at our best but we will embrace that challenge, and we look forward to facing Man City in their own backyard because, in my eyes, they are title challengers this season. “We need to look to ourselves. Only the best can be a good enough performance against Manchester City.” The fixture is the first time Martinez has faced City since beating them in the FA Cup final with his Wigan underdogs, but he does not expect to reference that game in his pre-match planning. “In many ways it is very different because you have a different manager with different ideas and different players. But then, in the same way, you have a lot of the important players who have been at the club for a long while and that means there will be similarities,” he said. “It is a completely different way of playing and, in that respect, it is going to be a different side.” Barry has slotted seamlessly into the Toffees’ midfield since his loan move late in the transfer window, but he is ineligible to play against his parent club at the the Etihad Stadium. It is a match when the former England international’s vast experience would have been in demand, but Martinez is keen to focus on the positives and how the Barry effect has filtered out to the rest of the squad, particularly the impressionable youngsters. “There has been a lot of talk about his 500 appearances in the Premier League (chalked up in Monday’s win over Newcastle) which is an incredible stat and shows the experience he has,” said the Spaniard. “But the way he is as a human being is an incredible influence for players like James McCarthy, Ross Barkley up to a point – players who can look up to someone who has been through many experiences and can give some sort of calm influence. “On the pitch I thought James McCarthy developed a good chemistry with Gareth. “In the second half against West Ham he did that straight away and he grew even bigger against Newcastle. “Players like James and Ross are going to get stronger and better and learn so quickly from someone like Gareth – he adds to the development of our youngsters, which is invaluable really. “I was always aware (of his ineligibility against City) so we need to accept it will be a period when he can recover, have a breather and get ready for the next game. “What matters is not that you are going to miss with Gareth, it is the opposite: (it is) what he is bringing already and the influence he has had in the dressing room and the games and how excited we are to have him for the rest of the season. “It will be a great opportunity for someone else and I think as a team you welcome those opportunities. The calming presence of Gareth Barry may be missing against Manchester City but his influence has already rubbed off on team-mates, according to Everton manager Roberto Martinez. Press Association

DR Congo reached the Africa Cup of Nations last eight as Group C winners yesterday with a victory that eliminated Togo.Tournament top scorer Junior Kabananga converted Chancel Mbemba’s pass for the opener, his third goal in three games.Kabananga hit the post with a flicked header before Ndombe Mubele doubled the lead after the break, looping the ball over the keeper amid static defending.Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba’s tidy finish gave Togo hope, but Paul-Jose M’Poku’s free-kick secured a deserved DR Congo win.In the group’s other game, holders Ivory Coast were knocked out after a 1-0 defeat by Morocco, who go through as group runners-up.DR Congo go on to play the Group D runners-up in the quarter-finals, which will be one of Mali, Ghana or – most likely – Egypt.Togo had to beat DR Congo to go through and the game began with ill fortune as goalkeeper Baba Tchagouni was forced off injured.He had to be replaced by third-choice stopper Cedric Mensah as first-choice Kossi Agassa had been allowed to return home after his house was vandalised by fans angry with his performance in the previous game, a 3-1 defeat by Morocco.After Laba’s goal, former Arsenal and Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor blasted a chance for an equaliser straight at the keeper and was denied by a goal-line clearance in injury time, but DR Congo were comfortable for the majority of the match.Jonathan Bolingi had a goal ruled out for offside, and the striker might have wrapped the result up sooner with a shot deflected just wide before M’Poku’s free-kick swerved in off the underside of the bar.(BBC Sport)
Liverpool: Liverpool must turn to unlikely heroes to overturn a 3-0 Champions League semi-final, first leg deficit against Barcelona on Tuesday, according to defender Trent Alexander-Arnold after Mohamed Salah was ruled out with concussion. Roberto Firmino will also be absent against the Spanish champions at Anfield, leaving Jurgen Klopp without two of his most potent attacking weapons for what is already a massive challenge.”Obviously we’ve got two of our main goalscorers out, but it also presents an opportunity for some of the other lads to come in, make a name for themselves and make themselves heroes,” said Alexander-Arnold. “If we do overturn the deficit tomorrow then whoever scores, their name will always be remembered because I am sure it will be one of those really special nights.” Salah was stretchered off during Liverpool’s tense 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday that kept alive their chances of a first Premier League title in 29 years after colliding with Magpies’ goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.”It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play,” Klopp said on Monday.”He feels OK but it is not good enough from a medical point of view that is all. He’s desperate (to play) but we cannot do it.”Klopp, speaking before Manchester City ensured they remain in the driving seat for the Premier League title by beating Leicester 1-0 on Monday, was realistic about his side’s chances of progressing to a second consecutive Champions League final.But the German refused to give up hope.”Together with our supporters it was a long season and there is at least a little chance to make it even longer,” Klopp added.”Two of the world’s best strikers are not available tomorrow night and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes.”It doesn’t make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Managing a big club like that comes with big expectations and he’s managed that very well,” said the QPR boss.AdChoices广告“He possibly hasn’t got the resources that other clubs have but he still manages what he has very, very well.“It’s difficult to be at a club that long – and being at the same club a long time can bring it’s own problems, because people will have heard the same voice over and over again.“It takes a skilled manager to keep making players aware of what’s required of them and he’s done that really well.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Sometimes a story is better told through the eyes of someone who has lived and experienced it. There’s a genuine authenticity behind the statements and the intentions of the material.That’s why when ESPN was looking for someone to work with executive producer Keyshawn Johnson in directing “Trojan War,” the latest installment of ESPN’s Emmy award-winning series 30 for 30, they turned to Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, a screenwriter, director and producer who attended the School of Cinematic Arts. As a grad student, he witnessed one of the most publicized times in college football: the Pete Carroll era and the rebirth of winning football in Troy.“When I received the offer, I was excited and I knew that I could do it. I was such a fan of the series that I was excited they were going to continue to do more,” Thomas said. “It’s something I would have watched no matter what. To actually be a part of it is a real blessing.”During his time as a student, Thomas says the vibe on campus was electric. With every snap of the ball he felt like something he’d never seen before would happen. The Bush Push is a play Thomas can still vividly recall.“I remember watching in Santa Monica with a bunch of friends. I was at Barney’s Beanery on the Promenade,” Thomas said. “I remember exactly what booth we were in, and I remember the whole place went nuts when it happened. Everybody jumping all over each other. Spilling drinks everywhere and nobody cared. It was just one of those things, you couldn’t plan it. It was a magical moment.”The national championship game against Texas is also well-documented in the film.Two of college football’s original blue bloods colliding. One aiming for its third straight title. The other hadn’t won a national title in decades. There was passion on both sides. The stakes were unparalleled, making for an epic game and is arguably the greatest college football game ever by Thomas’s estimation.Growing up in Kansas City, Kansas, Thomas always loved storytelling and began taking writing seriously after documenting the adventures of his friends. As a teenager at the Pembroke Hill School he played football and and ran track. His passion for writing and sports continued to grow, and he started to realize what he wanted to do professionally during those years.“If I had a choice between making films, making television or being the starting cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, I would still choose the film,” Thomas said. “That’s my passion. Whenever I run into athletes that’s the way I look at it. OK, your passion was becoming a ball player, my passion was this. There’s nothing else I’d rather do.”According to Thomas, there was a divide depending on which side of Kansas City you were from. This was during the East and West Coast hip-hop crossover into mainstream pop culture. The side of the city you grew up in dictated which coast earned your allegiance.“If you grew up on the Missouri side, it’s more about Tim’s and bubble coats, EPMD and Biggie,” Thomas said. “If you grew up on the Kansas side, it was more about Dickies, Khaki’s, Chuck’s and low riders. We identified more with N.W.A. and Pac.”One film in particular caught Thomas’s eye during his childhood. John Singleton’s early ’90s classic Boyz n the Hood was the movie he felt represented who he was.“Spike is a legend. I love Spike. But Spike is decidedly New York. I love Do The Right Thing but it wasn’t my life. Boyz in the Hood was my life,” Thomas said. “Tre, the good kid in a bad neighborhood, that was literally me. Once I saw that John Singleton clearly exists, then I wanted to know where he came from.”Once he learned Singleton had gone to USC, Thomas says it influenced his decision even more since he was already a fan of the producer and the school. He graduated from the University of Kansas and applied to the USC School of Cinematic Arts. He thought to himself, “Yes, NYU is cool, but I’m not a bubble coat or Timberland kind of guy.”As a student at USC, Thomas said he learned to not worry about comparing his work to others because each person’s work is unique. He liked the fact that ESPN encouraged individuality. He also knew he had a great story that was different than anything anyone else had brought to the table.“’The U’ had its own particular flavor. You’ve got the booty shaking, you’ve got Luke. That’s very distinctly Miami,” he said. “SMU had its own distinct flavor. You’ve got oil money; you’ve got Patrick Duffy doing the narration. That’s cowboy, go get ’em rough rider type stuff. But this is L.A. A whole different vibe,” he said. “I knew stylistically there were some things that we could do that would be very different from those two.”Thomas believes 30 for 30 films fall into two categories: fun and dramatic. He knew the dramatic side wasn’t the approach he wanted to take. To Thomas, Southern California is dynamic and diverse. It’s sunshine and good times. It’s Hollywood.Thomas aimed to take the audience on an engaging journey. He used a blend of subjects from the cinema school, combined with members of the football team and “controversial figures” to create a unique mix for the film.Jeff Fellenzer, who teaches a variety of sports-related courses at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, is one of the people Thomas interviewed in the film. He was also a faculty member and worked with the Student Academic Services department within the Athletic Department during Carroll’s tenure. In the film, he was interviewed by ESPN’s Shelley Smith.“Where I noticed that it seemed maybe questionable in some way was during the games, seeing how packed the sidelines were,” Fellenzer said.On the sidelines he saw agents, celebrities and former players. Anybody and everybody seemed welcomed.“It’s not likely that you can keep that under control once it starts,” he said. “When the sanctions came down, I thought that’s one area that’s going to be cited quickly. The practice and the games.”After the NCAA launched its investigation of Trojan football, it cited the school’s lack of institutional control, and stripped the program of wins, scholarships and Reggie Bush’s 2005 Heisman Trophy. Regardless of his devotion to USC, Thomas wanted to tell a balanced and objective story. One of his main concerns was not coming across as the ultimate homer. If he wanted to be biased, he says he would have just made a recruiting video.There will be questions, debates and criticism, all of which are part of a production of this nature, according to Thomas. He stands by their work and thinks it will be a fun ride for the audience.“At the end of the day it was a great era, it was a fun era. It was entertaining and it gives me great memories,” Thomas said. “I just hope the audience can take away even a little bit of what I felt experiencing that era.”“Trojan War” will first air on Oct. 13 at 6 p.m. PST on ESPN.
