Shell Offshore revealed that its affiliate, Shell E and P Offshore Services, will exercise a contractual right to buy the Turritella floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel from SBM Offshore. The 159,100 dwt vessel is contracted for the Stones deep-water development in the Gulf of Mexico, which began production last year.As informed, Shell and SBM will work over the next several months to achieve a “safe, smooth transition” of the vessel operations.“Transitioning the ownership and operations of the 2003-built vessel to Shell affiliates allows the company to pursue additional efficiencies and achieve cost improvements,” Shell explained.The Stones development is said to be the world’s deepest offshore oil and gas project and is scheduled to deliver approximately 50,000-barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) by the end of this year.Turritella FPSO has a daily production capacity of approximately 60,000 barrels of oil and 15 million cubic feet of natural gas.Currently, Shell has three additional Gulf of Mexico deep-water projects under construction – Appomattox, Kaikias, and Coulomb Phase 2 – as well as options for additional subsea tiebacks and Vito, a potential, new hub in the region.

Two attendees said they were walking in celebration of one of their birthdays. Others attended as a way to support Futuresâ€™ mission, the local Community Developmental Disability Organization.This year, the walk seemed to have an added sense of urgency behind it as the Brownback Administration has recently signaled its intent to move forward with plans to move long term care services for persons with I/DD into the stateâ€™s newly created KanCare system after a one year â€œcarve-out.â€Beginning in January of 2013 Kansas transferred control of its Medicaid system to three large out-of-state for-profit insurance companies for management. This move, one of the largest such contracts in the stateâ€™s history, has been implemented with the intent to save money through more coordinated health care service delivery. But advocates for the stateâ€™s more than 8,000 developmentally disabled citizens have been actively urging the Administration to make the â€œcarve-outâ€ permanent.â€œIncluding long-term care services, for folks who are elderly, frail, or developmentally disabled in a medically-based managed care model is risky, at best, and borders on irresponsible given the lack of any solid data that demonstrates that it does work,â€ states Tom Kohmetscher, CEO for Futures. â€œHistorically, the Kansas developmental disabilities system has been recognized as a model system that is based on local controls and consumer involvement. Itâ€™s also been noted to be cost effective and efficient. Community programs like ours work because weâ€™re local and we know the people we serve. Huge medical managed care systems canâ€™t duplicate that level of service â€“ especially when their primary intent is to generate profit for their shareholders,â€ Kohmetscher goes on to say.As the legislature reconvened on Monday, May 6, clients, family members and concerned advocates from Sumner County and all across the state will be urging legislators and the Governorâ€™s Administration to keep the Kansas DD long term care system out of KanCare and to instead continue to support a locally managed and delivered system that has worked successfully for over 20 years.To find out more, visit www.invisibleKansans.org.
