Craig ‘Crowie’ Alexander joins ATEC Show as ambassador

first_imgFormer IRONMAN World Champion, Craig ‘Crowie’ Alexander will be attending the third edition of Australia’s Triathlon Endurance and Cycling Show (ATEC) this September as an official ATEC Ambassador. In addition, Crowie will be bringing Sansego, his coaching platform and training community led by his personal team of coaches.Crowie is a three-time IRONMAN World Champion (2008, 2009, 2011), 2 x IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion (2006, 2011) and three-time Australian Long Course Champion (2010, 2006, 2004). Crowie has also received multiple prestigious sports awards and, perhaps most meaningfully, was lauded as ‘the first true men’s champion the sport has seen in years’ by none other than IRONMAN legend and six-time World Champion Dave Scott.“The ATEC team are delighted to have the support of Crowie and Sansego for the third edition of the show,” said Vanessa Maniatis, Exhibition Director of ATEC. “Crowie is highly regarded within the triathlon community and his involvement will be a huge drawcard for visitors and exhibitors alike.”During the ATEC weekend, Crowie will take part in a 45-minute Q&A session on the show’s main stage, two ‘meet & greet’ sessions and live coaching workshops presented by Sansego.“Endurance sports fans know Crowie best for his world champion titles and legendary performances at triathlon’s most prestigious races,” added Crowie’s Sansego partner Franko Vatterott. “But what they don’t always get a glimpse of is the mind-set in which he approaches training, racing and life balance. This is a major philosophy behind the Sansego brand, which can be universally applied to any athlete of any level. We are thrilled to partner with ATEC and excited to meet endurance athletes in September.”ATEC’s new show format is taking shape and a number endurance experts and enthusiasts have signed to become an ATEC Ambassador. In addition to Crowie, Pete Jacobs, IRONMAN Triathlon World Champion in 2012, as well as ultra-marathon Pat Farmer, and professional cyclist Henk Vogels are confirmed as official ATEC Ambassadors. ATEC is still assigning a swimming ambassador, to cover all the areas of interest at the show, with further details to follow.In addition, ATEC has launched a newly formed online community platform, hosting ‘relevant, curated expert content by ATEC ambassadors’, and is providing new promotional avenues for exhibitors in the lead up to the show.ATEC is positioned as Australia’s premier event celebrating the endurance lifestyle. ATEC attracts thousands of cyclists, runners, swimmers, triathletes and endurance sports enthusiasts to interact with latest product innovations from leading brands; learn from industry influencers and inspiring athletes; and take part in the many interactive and entertainment opportunities of the show.More than 120 exhibitors from the participation and endurance sports industry are in the pipeline to showcase the latest products and innovations across eight dedicated zones at ATEC.

Byron sets Hercules’ rig in motion to spud Gulf of Mexico well

first_imgByron Energy, the operator of several blocks in the Gulf of Mexico, has mobilised Hercules Offshore’s drilling rig Hercules 205 to the SM-6 #2 well location in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The rig was recently released by its previous operator, Renaissance, and it will operate for Byron under a dayrate between $49,000 and $51,000.According to Otto Energy, a partner in the project, the rig was mobilized on Thursday and the move is expected to take one day. The well is expected to spud about 6 days after mobilisation, Otto said.Once on location, Otto added, the rig will install new 30” conductor guides on the existing 72” caisson, drive the 30” conductor pipe and then start drilling the SM-6 #2 well.The SM-6 #2 well is the first well to be drilled as part of Otto’s farm-in transaction with Byron announced in December 2015. The SMI-6 lease is part of a portfolio of low cost, high chance of success, conventional oil and gas opportunities located both onshore and offshore the Gulf of Mexico, which Otto has the option to participate in as part of the transaction.In order to earn a 50% working interest (equal to a 40.625% revenue interest) in the SMI-6 Lease, Otto will contribute 66.67% of the costs of the well (estimated at $5.3 million net to Otto). Any costs above this amount in respect of the SM-6 #2 well and all future expenditure on the license will be in accordance with Otto and Byron’s participating interest (Otto 50%).Otto’s Managing Director, Matthew Allen said: “We are very pleased to have commenced operations in respect of the SM-6 #2 well. The well location is situated in shallow water and surrounded by existing infrastructure. “In the success case, the well will be completed for production with development by way of low-cost tie in, meaning that the project is economically robust even in the current low oil price environment. With production likely to commence around mid-2017, any improvement in oil price conditions will yield significant further value.”last_img read more
