SHOWTIME: PCHS summer arts camp puts on play

first_imgYoung performers at the Pike County High School summer arts camp perform “Jack and the Beanstalk” Friday night, thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Alabama Department of Education to make the camp possible. Theater instructor Hannah Clifford said the students were nervous, but performed well for the first play of the camp. Latest Stories The Arts Academy’s Summer Arts Camp was designed to interest elementary students in the arts and to introduce them to the opportunities available at the high school.“Because the arts camp was a new venture, we wanted to start small and grow,” Clifford said. “We had 13 students and they were involved in art and music activities as well as theater. Of course, they learned the storyline and brought it to the stage. Their art projects included making paper mache props – flowers and gold eggs. They made musical instruments called shekeres, which are African drums, and tambourines. They learned and sang songs that were popular children’s songs.”The arts camp students performed “Jack and the Beanstalk” for an appreciative audience at the PCHS Art Center theater Friday night. “Once upon a time, there was a boy named Jack who lived with his poor widowed mother. …” That’s the way  “Jack and the Beanstalk” begins but Friday night the students at the Summer Arts Camp at Pike County High School put a different twist on the English fairy tale. Hannah Clifford, theater instructor at the PCHS Arts Academy, said the summer arts camp was the academy’s first and she was pleased with the participation of the students and the support of their parents.“We received a $20,000 arts grant from the State Department of Education that made the arts camp possible,” Clifford said. “The concentrations for the camp were theater, art and music. The grant funds were used to purchase sound equipment and materials for the interactive learning program. Funds from the grant were also used to provide scholarships to Troy University’s Summer Spotlight camp last summer. One of the scholarship recipients was an assistant at our summer arts camp.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Email the author Sponsored Content Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder Published 10:50 pm Monday, June 11, 2018 Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Daycenter_img “They were a little nervous at first because, for some of them, it was their first time on stage and before an audience,” Clifford said. “They did a great job and they seemed to enjoy being on stage. I hope the experience will be encouragement to them to continue their interest in the arts as elementary students and on into high school.”Clifford was the theater instructor at the camp. Carrie McLaney was the art instructor and Jimmy Oliver directed the music and related activities. Amanda Johnson Lewis, a professional actress, was a camp volunteer.

Equinor hires Noble rig for Valemon campaign

first_imgEquinor noted that, being the world’s tallest jack-up rig, Noble Lloyd Noble can stand on the seabed in up to 150 metres of water under tough weather conditions. Equinor said on Tuesday that the contract includes an option for drilling one extra well at the Valemon field and 11 wells that are not included in the same licence. Due to its fragmented high-pressure, high-temperature qualities, Valemon is a complex reservoir. The field is produced by pressure depletion. Additional cost includes integrated services such as managed pressure drilling, treatment of cuttings and wastewater as well as running casing and tubing, further, rig modifications, mobilization and demobilization.  The total value of the day rates for the fixed part of the contract is estimated at around $51 million. “We are very pleased with the job this rig has done for us at the Mariner field off the coast of Scotland, in particular, the safety culture”, says Erik G. Kirkemo, senior vice president of drilling & well operations. Noble Corporation has been awarded a contract by Equinor for drilling three wells at the Valemon field from the summer of 2021, using the Noble Lloyd Noble drilling rig. Valemon is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, just west of the Kvitebjørn field. The water depth is 135 metres. Valemon was discovered in 1985, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2011. The Valemon drilling campaign is estimated to take around 230 days.center_img “With strong onboard leadership they have embedded best practice for safety and have not had any incidents so far in 2020. Through good planning and collaboration, they have achieved strong operational results close to what we define as a perfect well”. The rig contractor also received a master frame agreement with Equinor. The condensate is transported by pipeline to the Kvitebjørn field, and via the Kvitebjørn Oil Pipeline to Mongstad. The rich gas is exported via the previous Huldra pipeline to Heimdal for further export to the UK or continental Europe. “Equinor is exploring new ways of working with suppliers to increase efficiency and create value together. Long-term collaboration with suppliers who deliver on our expectations is an important element in that respect. This way we reward safe and efficient deliveries and keep building on experience and improvement results achieved in past projects”, says Peggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor’s chief procurement officer. The contract is subject to the rig receiving an Acknowledgement of Compliance from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway. The partners of the Valemon licence are Equinor (66.78 per cent, operator), Petoro (30 per cent) and Shell (3.22 per cent). The field is developed with a fixed production platform with a simplified separation process design. The platform is remotely controlled from an operations centre onshore. Production started in 2015.last_img read more
