first_img But in the oil patch, you either innovate or disintegrate. The need to bring down costs and increase the recovery of oil and natural gas is now a prerequisite to stay alive in the oil patch during a major price correction, such as we’re currently in. The need to modify drill and production programs to be efficient is greater than ever. Companies will focus on increasing the number of wells per pad and down spacing, which allows producers to increase extraction efficiency by reducing the length between wells on a per acre basis. But I believe the greatest efficiency and success of this downturn will be re-fracking. Re-Enter and Re-Frac In the next few years, you’ll very likely be hearing a lot about re-fracking… and it will likely also become as common as fracking is today over that time frame. What is re-fracking? Essentially, rather than drilling a new well, a company re-enters and re-fractures existing horizontal wells. This can be done currently at about 25% of the cost; that cost will only improve with more “re-fracks” and as better techniques develop with time. Now that oil has fallen to new lows and management teams are coming to the realization that prices aren’t going up anytime soon, oil producers need to find ways to reduce drilling costs and increase production (recovery) from existing wells. I believe that one of the absolute best ways to do this is to eliminate as much of the drilling costs of a new well as possible and focus on re-entering an existing well. By applying better modern technology and better equipment, the company can re-frack the older horizontal wells to unlock the trapped oil and natural gas left behind in the initial frack process. And there’s a lot of oil left behind in the existing fracked wells. Bam! Innovation out of necessity. Re-fracturing horizontal oil wells is new to the industry, but I think it will actually revitalize the declining wells in the shale sector. I’m not saying that the re-fracked wells will be better than the original fracked wells initially, but thus far, the future is very promising for re-fracks based on the results I’ve seen. Not only can re-fracking revitalize these declining wells, it can also increase the companies’ drilling inventories significantly, which is a huge positive. “Drilling inventory” is the number of potential wells per section. More wells means more reserves, which is good, especially if the cost  to re-enter those existing wells is one-quarter or less the cost of drilling a new well. Now I know there will be an old guard—the same guys who in 2007 and 2008 told me that fracking is science fiction—who won’t believe in re-fracking, but that’s their problem. I’m already planning how I am going to position myself and my subscribers to take advantage of this trend that no one is talking about. One of the first companies to test re-fractures is Marathon Oil Corp. (MRO) in its core Bakken acreage in Mountrail and Dunn Counties. So, we called the company up and starting asking questions. They really didn’t like the fact we came knocking and didn’t want to give out much information, as this is cutting-edge stuff, and the company has a leg up on its competition. But anyone who knows me knows I don’t give up easily, so I got the story… and it gets very good. The re-fractured wells significantly outperformed expected results. In the third quarter of 2014, Marathon Oil completed 13 re-fractured wells, all with very positive results. So I kept the search on for other management teams that have the know-how to deploy re-fracks. I called Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), one of the true pioneers in the early days of the Eagle Ford shale in Texas. PXD is seeing major success using re-fracking the Eagle Ford. I didn’t stop there. I have the whole list of who’s re-fracking and who isn’t. But that information is for my paying subscribers. That said, I’d be remiss if I left out my fellow Canadians and failed to mention that the Canadian companies such as Crescent Point Energy (CPG.TO) are not too far behind this new re-fracking trend. CPG will begin re-fracturing its Alberta Bakken wells in 2015. Who will really benefit from the re-fracking boom? I think I nailed this one… and it will be the basis of my March Casey Energy Report newsletter. I spoke to one of the world’s leading minds in well re-fracking recently, to pick his mind on where the industry is currently and where it will be going in a few years. His insights and experience are incredible. This executive was one of the final candidates to be the president of one of the world’s largest service companies; and after not getting the nod, he left the company (into which he’d put over 30 years of service) and formed a multibillion-dollar fund which is now capitalizing on the new enhanced oil recoveries. I also plan on making money for my Casey Energy Report subscribers with it. The reason for the recent emphasis on efficiency is due to the adversity facing oil and gas producers, with lower oil prices and a business model built upon levered growth. Many companies have over-accumulated debt to fund growth projects, and as oil prices fall, they must look to efficiencies to keep growth alive or keep existing production stable. Shale wells face production decline rates ranging from 50%-85% in some wells of the three main formations. Therefore, US shale producers have to keep drilling just to maintain production and continuously pay out large interest payments to their debt holders. These interest payments are burdensome on the profitability of producers, but if they even slow production, their interest payments would be at risk at $50 oil. Looking at the large and small producers in the three main basins in the US, we can see how much these interest payments can cost a company as a percentage of operating profit. If highly levered US producers were to cut production, their interest costs could rise to greater than 50% of their operating profit and would put the company at risk of default. If that happens, debt is likely to dry up, and lenders would tighten lending restrictions on these companies. US companies are using down spacing, pad drilling, and re-fracturing as a way to stabilize and grow production while cutting costs in order to avoid accumulating additional debt or seeking additional credit facilities to fund their production. The United States is a place that fosters innovation. With companies like Google, Apple, and Tesla, it’s easy to overlook innovation in the oil and gas industry. As oil and gas producers face the adversity of low oil prices and high leverage, they rely on the main characteristic that birthed the shale revolution: innovation. The Saudis may be dictating the price of oil currently to fight for international market share, but oil production from shale formations will not be destroyed, as OPEC hopes it will. The US oil producers will continue to pump record amounts of crude, not because they want to, but because they have to—and having to do something spurs the type of innovation we’re seeing in the oil and gas industry today. The future of fracking is re-fracking, and we’re on the cusp of what will be the next phase of the US Shale Revolution. How Do You Make Money from the Re-fracking Revolution? The current energy markets are volatile, but a speculator must use volatility to his own advantage to build positions in companies that have suffered as a result of the current market correction. I follow a very disciplined approach and use very advanced mathematics and technical knowledge to position myself in the best energy companies. If you’re looking for in-depth research, experience, and exposure to my vast network in the resource sector, then you may want to pay attention to what I’m doing. If you believe that to be successful in the resource sector one must be a contrarian to be rich—as I do—now is the time to become engaged. Come see what I’m doing with my own money. You’ll get access to every Casey Energy Report newsletter I’ve written in the last decade, as well as my next two monthly reports, which will not only cover the potential of re-fracking, but will reveal which companies will be best situated to make their shareholders money in the current depressed energy market. It’s all available right here. I can’t make the trade for you, but I can help you help yourself. I’m making big bets—are you ready to step up and join me? This will be one of the most important missives I will ever write. The future of fracking is re-fracking. This cutting-edge technology is new, and I’ll walk you through everything you need to know about the next game-changing technology in the shale revolution. Some will call it Fracking 2.0., but I call it Re-Fracking. Adversity is understating the potential headwinds heavily indebted oil and gas companies face as 2015 begins, oil prices stay suppressed, and hedges on their production eventually wind down. Adversity always results in innovation in the top oil and gas producers, operators, and servicers in the industry in every downturn. Where We Were, Where We Are, and Where We’re Going In 1956 Marion King Hubbert, a geoscientist from Shell, predicted peak oil production would be reached between 1965 and 1970. He became famous when his prediction became reality in 1970. But everything changed when the innovations in horizontal drilling and fracturing allowed companies to recover oil and natural gas from new and deeper formations such as the Bakken, Eagle Ford, and Permian Basin at the dawn of the 21st century. Hydraulic fracturing has experienced many innovations, such as increased lengths both vertically and laterally as well as new completion designs which have increased fracture stages along the well and perforations (number of fractures) between each cluster stage, to name a few.center_img I prefer to spell the shorthand for hydraulic fracturing as “fracing,” because it’s an adaptation of the word “fracturing,” which is what happens to the formation of rock. But mainstream media, Microsoft Office Word 2013, and most important, my proofreaders disagree. The latter tell me it should actually follow some rule involving a part of speech called a “gerund” and get the “k” added. It’s a battle I don’t care to fight (I care about making money, not academic nonsense), so fracking will be the spelling in Casey publications moving forward. Whether you read the word fracking, fraccing, or fracing, they all refer to hydraulic fracturing.last_img read more


first_imgIn the past few years, consumer advocacy groups have pressed restaurant chains to offer healthier kids’ meals and more nutritious side options like milk and fruit, and the restaurants have responded.In 2013, McDonald’s pledged to remove all mentions and images of soda from Happy Meal menu boards, and shortly thereafter, other fast-food restaurants began to devise policies to introduce nutritious drink and side options beyond fries and dessert. McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and Subway — the four biggest fast-food chains — replaced soda on kids’ meal menus with low-fat milk, water and 100 percent juice, and McDonald’s and Subway promised to make fruit and vegetable sides available.So have the voluntary pledges to make fast food healthier meant parents are purchasing more of the healthier food for their kids at the restaurants?Not really, says a study released Thursday by the University of Connecticut’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. And that may not be a good sign for children’s health.The study documented about 800 parents’ purchases for their children at McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and Subway through online surveys conducted in 2010, 2013 and 2016.Between 2010 and 2016, the percentage of parents who purchased kids’ meals and received healthier drinks remained about the same at 59-60 percent. And from 2013 to 2016, the percentage of parents who purchased kids’ meals with healthier sides actually declined from 67 percent in 2013 to 50 percent in 2016.Also, parents report buying fast food for their children more often. In fact, 91 percent of parents surveyed in 2016 said they had purchased a meal for their child at the four largest fast-food chains in the past week, compared with 79 percent in 2010.”It appears that restaurants’ voluntary policies as currently implemented are unlikely to substantially reduce children’s fast-food consumption overall, or increase their consumption of healthy items,” the study says.The report doesn’t really surprise researchers. Past studies conducted by Rudd have shown that fast-food restaurants are following their own voluntary pledges inconsistently.For example, at one McDonald’s location, the cashier may automatically include soda with a kids’ meal, at another location you might need to ask, and the same goes for french fries, the study found. While all chains removed the items listed in their pledges from their online menus, many still listed soda on kids’ meal menus in the brick-and-mortar restaurants.Still, the “health halo” of the healthy offering policies seems to resonate with parents. Nearly all parents surveyed in the latest Rudd study said they would purchase food for their children at that restaurant more frequently because of the healthy offerings. But Harris says while they may have health in mind when entering the restaurant, this doesn’t always lead to healthy choices.”The marketing of the healthy options available is getting people in the door, but it’s unlikely they’ll take the effort to ask if [the restaurant has] something healthier,” says the study’s lead author, Dr. Jennifer L. Harris, the director of marketing initiatives at the Rudd Center.Instead, Harris says, the best option for public health would be to automatically include the healthy options with the kids’ meals. “If fast-food restaurants start automatically giving patients healthy choices, that would be encouraging,” she says.Hillary Caron, a senior policy associate at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, says that the Rudd Center’s study is particularly interesting because it demonstrates the power of defaults in consumer decision-making. That is, if the meal comes with fries unless you ask for apple slices instead, you’re likely to get fries.Some government officials have already taken this message to heart. Just last week, California became to first state to pass a healthy-kids’-meal policy when Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that prohibits soda and other sugary drinks from being the designated beverages that come with kids’ meals. Similar bills have passed in cities like Louisville, Ky., and Baltimore and have been proposed in New York City and D.C.Harris says that the findings of the latest Rudd study indicate a need for such public policies. Voluntary and mandatory policies could work hand in hand, though, according to Caron.”Both approaches reinforce each other,” Caron writes in an email to NPR. Voluntary commitments from restaurants, she says, help make the case for state and local policies because they show that the changes are achievable. But state and local policies ensure that the principles apply to all restaurants, not just chains that propose voluntary health policies.Still, Harris wants people to remember that even if the fast food offered at restaurants is billed as healthy, most fast-food meals still consist of chicken nuggets, burgers and fries.”It’s important to communicate that fast-food meals are not healthy options,” Harris says. “Replacing soda with milk or water doesn’t make the meal healthy,” she adds. “It’s a small step, but in the right direction.”Rachel D.

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Oct 23 2018The more weeks a women takes pain-reliving medication during pregnancy, the earlier their daughters enter puberty. This is shown by a new study from Aarhus University.Breasts, pimples and menstruation, hair growth in places where there was none previously, and unpredictable mood swings. Welcome to puberty, which for the majority of girls begins when they are around ten or eleven years old – or even earlier – if the mother has taken painkillers with paracetamol (which in Denmark sell under names such as e.g. Panodil, Pinex or Pamol) during pregnancy.As the first in the world, researchers from Aarhus University have examined the correlation between the intake of the analgesic paracetamol during pregnancy and girls and boys pubertal development. The results have just been published in the international journal, American Journal of Epidemiology.Related StoriesCannabis use during pregnancy may cause premature birthIt is okay for women with lupus to get pregnant with proper care, says new studyWomen’s pre-pregnancy obesity changes breast milk contents which can affect infant growth”We found a ‘dose-response’ correlation. That is to say, the more weeks with paracetamol during pregnancy, the earlier puberty in girls, but not in boys,” says PhD student Andreas Ernst from the Department of Public Health, Aarhus University, who is behind the study.The study is based on the largest collection of puberty data in the Danish birth cohort (BSIG.dk). A group of around 100,000 women provided detailed information about their use of paracetamol three times during their pregnancy. A total of 15,822 children, 7,697 boys and 8,125 girls born to these mothers between 2000-2003 were followed from the age of eleven and throughout puberty with questionnaires every six months about several different aspects of their development.Puberty arrives earlierThe study showed that girls on average enter puberty between one-and-a-half and three months earlier, if the mother took painkillers for more than twelve weeks during pregnancy.”While entering puberty one-and-a-half to three months earlier may seem unimportant, when taken together with the frequent use of paracetamol during pregnancy, our findings ought to make people take notice. Our results are certainly not the decisive factor that should change current practice, but the perception of paracetamol as ‘the safe and harmless choice’ during pregnancy ought to be challenged,” explains Andreas Ernst.Worldwide, the average consumption of paracetamol has been increasing, and studies suggest that more than fifty per cent of pregnant women make use of painkillers containing paracetamol at least once during their pregnancy.”As earlier pubertal development has previously been tied to an increased risk of more frequent and serious diseases in adulthood such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and testicular and breast cancer, it’s important to identify possible causes of early puberty so we can prevent this development,” says Andreas Ernst.

first_imgImage Credit: Bondar Illia / Shutterstock In a study published in the Journal of Children and Media, the researchers found that grandparents of today are spoiling their grandkids by allowing them, while under their supervision, to spend longer periods of time using gadgets than their parents might otherwise allow. The researchers wanted to see if other caregivers of children influence how much screen time kids experience. By Angela Betsaida B. Laguipo, BSNJul 9 2019Grandparents may be spoiling their grandkids, allowing them too much screen time, according to a new study. A team of researchers found that grandparents may be fueling excessive device usage among kids, which has become a growing health concern worldwide. “Studies were mostly based on parents’ reports and ignored other major caregivers, particularly grandparents. Accordingly, this study offers a pioneer exploration of young children’s interactive and non-interactive media use under their grandparent’s care and the factors associated with extensive use,” the researchers explained in the study. Children spend half of their time on gadgetsThe researchers studied the grandparents’ experiences in taking care of children aged between 2 and 7 years old. They found that on an average of a visit lasting for 4 hours, the kids spent two hours either playing games on gadgets or watching videos.The results show that let the children spend about half of their time on a tablet, computer, television, or mobile phone.Study findings are alarmingBoys spend more time on gadgets than girls, with 17 minutes more screen time. Other findings show that the grandparents claim they feel less confident in supervising the gadget use of their grandkids than in handling their use of non-interactive videos.But, the results also show that grandfathers were more likely to allow more interactive screen time than grandmothers. Hence, the researchers suggest that they are more confident and knowledgeable in using technology.Related StoriesResearchers identify gene mutations linked to leukemia in children with Down’s syndromeNew therapeutic food boosts key growth-promoting gut microbes in malnourished childrenResearch reveals genetic cause of deadly digestive disease in childrenOlder children may spend more time on devices than younger ones, and grandparents were more likely to let their grandchildren spend more time on these gadgets if the parents gave instruction on how to use these technologies beforehand.  Plus, the grandparents let the kids play gadgets or watch videos when they look after the kids in their own homes than when they’re in the children’s houses. They also allow more time spent on gadgets when the kids ring their own device.Overall, the lowest amount of time dedicated to media use per visit with grandparents was seen among children who are 2 to 3 years old, with only 98 minutes per visit. On the other hand, children who are 4 to 5 years old spend about 106 minutes on gadgets. The age group show spent most screen time are those who are 6 to 7 years old.Grandparents should set screen time restrictions“Grandparents play a significant role in raising their grandchildren. We need to educate them about the impact of media on children’s lives and on proper use that will benefit the wellbeing of their grandchildren,” Dafna Lemish, study co-author, said in a statement.The researchers suggest that grandparents should play a part in teaching kids on responsible device use, by restricting media use. They can do this by setting simple rules on screen time when they are babysitting.Moreover, grandparents should set firm rules on screen time, which is not more than 1 hour, not during meals, and not before bedtime. This way, they can help reduce screen time among children. For parents, they should provide toys, books, and games to help grandparents babysit and keep the children busy.“These findings raise concerns regarding young children’s media use under their grandparents’ watch, but also suggest effective strategies for its reduction,” the researches concluded in the study.Health effects of too much screen time among childrenIn another recent study, children who spend more time on gadgets and devices are more likely to have health harms, including unhealthy diet, adiposity, depressive symptoms, and decreased quality of life.Other health problems include anxiety, depression, behavior problems, hyperactivity and inattention, low self-esteem, other mental health problems.

first_imgPiyush Goyal, BJP’s election in-charge for Tamil Nadu, addressing the media in Chennai on Friday   –  Bijoy Ghosh poll campaign COMMENT COMMENTS ‘Gandhi family, DMK corrupt to the core’ People will do a ‘surgical strike’ on the DMK and the Congress because they are the fountain-head of corruption in this country, said Union Minister Piyush Goyal, who is BJP’s election incharge for Tamil Nadu, while reacting to Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s corruption charges on the BJP at a rally in Krishnagiri.Gandhi should first answer as to why his family and his party had allowed poverty in India for so many years while they were in power. “Three generations of Gandhi family rule had cheated the poor of India. Now, the poor of India don’t trust the Gandhi family, the Congress or the DMK because they make only false promises,” Goyal told newspersons here. Various corruption cases, including Coalgate, Aircel-Maxis; 2G and telecom (BSNL-Maran case), happened during the Congress rule in which the DMK was an alliance partner. “The nation wants to know whether they are going to do only corruption or will they ever think for the poor of India. Nobody believes their false promises,” he said.NDA in Tamil Nadu “I am confident that people here want Modi to once again become Prime Minister and serve the people of India,” Goyal said.In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, all the 40 seats, including the lone Puducherry seat, were won by current NDA alliance partners — the AIADMK (37); the PMK (one); the BJP (one) and the NR Congress in Puducherry. This time, “we have formed the biggest alliance that Tamil Nadu has ever seen. We are confident that people here will support this alliance, which stands for strong, stable, decisive, honest and visionary leader Narendra Modi. This alliance is working to strengthen Modi’s government and to ensure that the next government will have a big voice, and people of Tamil Nadu will have a big representation,” he said. The BJP is committed to setting up an authority to speed up the implementation of the interlinking of rivers. The Congress and the DMK in the last ten years did nothing for interlinking of rivers. However, from 2014, the Modi Government has continuously worked on this. For example, the Godavari-Cauvery link has tremendous potential and can help all southern States, with Tamil Nadu being one of the biggest beneficiaries. Both the Centre and the State government are working to set up a series of solar-powered desalination plants to provide immediate relief to the people of Tamil Nadu especially in the coastal areas by providing drinking water.The Kusum Yojna will be a game changer for farmers who will be encouraged to set up solar power generation in a part of their fields. The solar power will be used to power pumps and the balance power will be fed to the Tamil Nadu power grid so that farmers’ income can increase significantly by the use of land for solar power apart from increasing the crop yield, he said.
