online It expects that its operational costs will increase proportionally to the remoteness of, and site internet any restrictions on access to, the properties on which any such reserves may be found. Adverse climatic conditions at such properties may also hinder EW's ability to carry on exploration or production activities continuously throughout any given year. The significant positive factors that are relevant to the estimate contained website in the resource assessment are: - proven production in close proximity; - proven commercial quality reservoirs in close proximity; and - oil and gas shows while drilling wells nearby; and - nearby infrastructure with excess capacity The significant negative factors that are relevant to the estimate contained in the Resource Assessment are: - tectonically complex geology could compromise seal potential; and - seismic attribute mapping in the Taranaki Basin area can be indicative but not certain in identifying proven resource.

New Zealand's agricultural regulator said on Monday it has revoked export certificates for four China-bound consignments of lactoferrin manufactured by Westland Milk Products after higher- than-acceptable nitrate levels were found by tests in China. Two of the four consignments had been shipped to China but had not reached consumers, New Zealand's Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) said. "Any food safety risk to Chinese consumers is negligible because the quantities of lactoferrin used in consumer products was very small, meaning the nitrate levels in those products would easily be within acceptable levels", Scott Gallacher, the acting director-general of the MPI, said in a statement. The announcement comes just weeks after Westland's much bigger competitor, Fonterra, said some of its dairy ingredients were contaminated with a botulism-causing bacteria.
Averting disaster, New Zealand captured the first point of seven needed to win the Louis Vuitton Cup finals. The winner will sail against defending champion Oracle Team USA next month for the world's oldest sporting trophy. But the visit this page breakage on the yachts further underscored the dangers of the high-tech 72-foot catamarans, known as AC72s, used in this year's Cup. The men went overboard on the fourth of a five-leg course when New Zealand buried a bow deep underwater while turning away from the wind in a dangerous mark-rounding maneuver known as a bear away. It had been skimming above the water's surface on its hydrofoiling daggerboard and rudders at 46 miles per hour, one mile over the speed limit on the Golden Gate Bridge. New Zealand skipper Dean Barker said his team was able to repair the faring on what he called the "high-adrenaline boat" and could have raced again on Saturday. "We're obviously very thankful that all the guys are okay," he said.

At the end of the race it developed a couple of cracks in the ribs of its 130-foot wing, said Sirena. "It was nothing major," he said. Not to be left out, Oracle Team USA snapped a rudder on one of its two boats during practice runs Sunday. Skipper Ben Ainslie said the rudder had been damaged the day before when it struck a spectator boat that passed too close. The challenge final resumes Monday on what was originally planned as a reserve day. Two races are on the schedule, but organizers have moved the start time up by an hour to 12:10 local time (3:10 p.m. ET) before the winds pick up in the afternoon.
