TNK-BP said this was in order to meet a government target of increasing associated gas utilisation to 95 per cent by 2012.Associated gas is often found dissolved in oil at high pressures existing in a reservoir or as a gas cap above the oilVice president Alistair Ferguson said yesterday associated gas would provide over half of the oil firm’s production. “Critical to achieving this (95 percent utilisation rate) is getting associated gas priority access to the gas pipeline. But you also need to have customers for it, so access to the power market is another important element,” added Ferguson.The firm will also invest $2bn on regular natural gas extraction projects over the next three years, putting the total natural gas investment plan at $3.8bn.TNK-BP, is set to produce 13 bcm of gas this year from 143 fields and already processes 85 per cent of the associated gas that it extracts from the ground together with oil.Part of TNK-BP’s $1.8bn associated gas utilisation project is a $700m investment in its own energy projects, such as gas processing facilities and power plants, which will supply electricity for the firm’s own oil field operations.But that output target does not factor in the gas assets it is in negotiations to buy from BP in Venezuela and Vietnam.It does, however, include potential unconventional gas production in Ukraine, where TNK-BP has submitted applications for six licences to invest $50m to explore for tight gas. TNK-BP’s main gas-producing assets in Russia are its Rospan fields in Arctic Yamal-Nenets region in the Arctic. Production at Rospan grew by 12 per cent year-on-year for January to September 2010 to 1.9 bcm. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Marco Rubio, senador republicano por la Florida dijo recientemente que la reforma migratoria debía llevarse a cabo “poco a poco”, meses después que ayudó a pasar legislación hacia un programa total de inmigración.

En primer lugar, de acuerdo a la Constitución Haitiana, todo hijo de haitiano, nacido o no en territorio haitiano, es automáticamente ciudadano haitiano. En segundo lugar, aquellos hijos de haitianos ilegales nacidos en territorio dominicano, nunca han sido ni son dominicanos (de acuerdo con ambas Constituciones).

Palmer will be retiring at the end of the school year after spending 39 years in education, 24 of them working for ECISD.(Eli Hartman | Odessa American) 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Nimitz Middle School Facebook For the past 39 years, Sherry Palmer has given her life to education as a teacher, principal and program director and myriad other posts.About 10 years ago, she became principal of Carver Early Education Center, one of Ector County ISD’s two prekindergarten centers, and now she’s retiring.She’s been with ECISD for 24 years.Principal of Carver Early Education Center Sherry Palmer poses for a photo Thursday morning at Carver Early Education Center. Palmer will be retiring at the end of the school year after spending 39 years in education, 24 of them working for ECISD.(Eli Hartman | Odessa American)“It was a hard decision to make, but I’m going to be 70 in June,” Palmer said. And she’ll be able to attend more family activities, something she can’t do as principal of Carver.“It’s just a time in my life where I just kind of need to do something different. I still love it,” Palmer said.Raised in Central Texas, Palmer graduated from Ballinger High School. She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Wayland Baptist University in Plainview and that’s where she met her husband, Jim.She earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from University of Texas Permian Basin and came within a dissertation of earning her doctorate from the University of Wyoming.“I started my teaching career as a second and third grade (teacher), so a blended, combined classroom of second and third graders in a little country school (in) Spade, Texas …,” Palmer said.She stepped out of education for five years to raise her daughter and then began teaching again at the now closed Sherwood Christian Academy.Palmer was a third grade teacher at Dowling Elementary and then her husband’s job moved the family back to the Lubbock area. Palmer taught first grade there and then her husband’s job moved them to Wyoming where she taught sixth, seventh and eighth grade math.Her husband’s job again brought them back to Odessa. Palmer taught sixth grade at Burleson and then was tapped to be part of a new program called Educators for Tomorrow.“We recruited first-generation college-bound juniors and seniors in high school who thought they had an interest in education. And so I was the lead teacher and the coordinator of that program for five or six years. It was an amazing program. There are a couple of principals in town that actually went through that program. Ms. Davila at West (Elementary) and Amanda Warber, who’s the (elementary) alternative education principal went through that program. In fact, I think they were in the first cohort … and we have several teachers in our district that that actually went through that program,” Palmer said.Central office and a stint in staff development was next.Her next job took her back to Wyoming to manage a multi-million dollar federal Department of Education grant. “… We brought up three professional development schools where we could train teachers remotely because Wyoming is very remote, very remote,” Palmer said.When she left Wyoming, she spent three years as an assistant principal at Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District. She got a chance to return to Odessa 14 years ago as principal of Dowling Elementary. She then had the opportunity to come to Carver Early Childhood Center.“It’s been the most amazing thing. I have been blessed, let me say that, that every single thing I’ve done I’ve loved and I’ve had a passion about it,” Palmer said.Deputy Superintendent Stephanie Howard and Executive Director of Leadership Andrea Martin said Palmer will be missed.“Sherry’s passion and commitment to the students, staff, and families she serves at Carver Early Childhood Center is so evident in everything she does. She understands the importance of pre-k establishing a solid foundation for students to build on K-12. Sherry gets students excited about learning and does an outstanding job involving parents and helping them learn how to support their children as they enter school. We will miss her leadership at Carver and across the district. She is well respected by her colleagues and has served the students, staff, and families well over the years. We wish her the best as she enters a well-deserved retirement,” Howard said in an email.Martin said when you look pre-k up in the dictionary, there needs to be a picture of Palmer.“The Carver Early Childhood Center is a place where any parent would feel welcome and very happy with the learning experiences that their child was receiving. It also seemed as if every parent was ‘adopted’ by the campus and truly included as a part of their child’s education. This commitment to parents was very important to Mrs. Palmer. She loved every one of her students, and she knew that that parent partnership was key. As an advocate for pre-k and always wanting to learn more, Mrs. Palmer attended conferences, continuously researched pre-k education, and was not scared to let her staff try new and innovative ideas on campus. …<’ Martin said in an email.This is Palmer’s 10th year at Carver and she estimated that she’s impacted thousands of students. She can recognize most of her former charges by their eyes.“If I can get a good look at your eyes, I can figure it out,” she said.Palmer said her top accomplishments over the past 10 years are helping prekindergarten teachers understand the data world and nurturing the staff to follow their hearts and to become an inclusive school, meaning that if you’re a special education student, you are well loved in this school not only your teacher, but by every adult.“They’re going to look out for you,” Palmer said.Parent engagement is the third accomplishment.“This is such a great big job. We have to have the families’ help. They have to engage with us. We’re the foundational level, so it’s sort of up to us to start offering those opportunities and really teach the parents to be good school parents, if that makes any sense. Then we layer it on” with things like parent academies, Palmer said.She noted that the school acts as the student’s advocate for a year or two, but the students will never lose their parents in that capacity.The academies offer tips about how parents can be really good advocates and teach them how to ask “great questions.”“We were the first early childhood center in the state of Texas to embrace the academic parent teacher team concept. That work is out of Harvard University, so it has some good research behind it. …,” Palmer said.She added that she wants to create a revolution with parent engagement.“We have to have families engaged with us and they have to know that data and what it means and what it means for their child. They have to be able to set individualized goals for their kiddo that are attainable and they’re going to help us reach it.”Palmer said she will miss pretty much everything about her job.“I will miss the children, first of all. I will miss the staff. The staff is a pretty amazing staff. And I’ll miss the families … and I’ll miss the fast pace …,” she said.The Palmers’ daughter died 10 years ago of lymphoma. They have no grandchildren, but they have many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews who they will be seeing more of. WhatsApplast_img read more

Mortgage Contracting Services Expands Product Offerings with Acquisition of CoreLogic Business Units

He practices in the areas of real estate, financial services, and general corporate transactional law. His experience includes time as an Attorney Adviser for the U.S. Small Business Administration and as General Counsel for a nonprofit organization in Dallas. A self-avowed “policy junkie,” he has a keen interest in the effect that evolving federal policy has on the mortgage, default servicing, and greater housing industries. Mortgage Contracting Services, LLC (MCS), a nationwide provider of property preservation, inspections and REO property maintenance to the financial services industry, announced today that it has broadened its client offerings to include appraisals, Broker Price Opinions, and other valuations-related products through its acquisition of the Collateral Solutions and Field Services business units of Irvine, California-based CoreLogic. The acquisition expands the MCS suite of mortgage services to include valuation products in both the default and loan origination sectors and also represents a significant expansion of its already strong representation in the property preservation industry.“This acquisition will expand our presence across multiple service lines within default servicing and move us beyond the default segment through being able to offer our clients the opportunity to call on MCS for valuations, appraisals and BPOs, as well as field services,” says MCS CEO Caroline Reaves. “This will allow us to service our clients with an expanded product range and ensure their compliance with federal, state and local regulations at every step.”The Collateral Solutions unit, based in Sandy, Utah, will remain in its current location and MCS has no plans to change its management team or operational structure, Ms. Reaves says. The Field Services unit, which is based in Westlake, Texas, will be combined with the MCS operations in Plano, TX.For nearly 30 years, MCS has protected and preserved communities across the nation. Some of the largest and most respected banks and mortgage servicers in the industry trust MCS to perform property inspections, property preservation, REO property maintenance and other default-related services in all 50 states. MCS has a history of providing these services in a highly regulated environment, the proven ability to handle large volumes of properties, and a record of recruiting, managing and monitoring a substantial vendor network.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Fannie Mae Freddie Mac UMBS Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will launch their uniform mortgage-backed securities (UMBS) on Monday, June 3.Regarding the combined bond from the GSEs, a report by Bloomberg stated that this change would “virtually eliminate the distinction between bonds issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which guarantee nearly half of U.S. residential mortgages,” with the combined security intended to help improve market market liquidity and mitigate investor risk.While some believe this change will lower mortgage rates, critics argue the opposite may happen. Some see the combined bond as “more than five-year process to unify a roughly $4.4 trillion pile of agency MBS currently split between the two government-sponsored enterprises.”“It already was the most liquid market in the world in many respects. What are they trying to fix, exactly?” Walt Schmidt, Head of Mortgage Strategies at FTN Financial in Chicago, told Bloomberg.The final outcome can’t be determined until the combined bonds launch.“To some extent June 3 will be a bit analogous to Y2K, you don’t know if everything will be successful until after the fact,” Jay Bacow, head of Morgan Stanley’s MBS research team, told Bloomberg. He added that “the mortgage market is second to Treasuries in terms of fixed-income liquidity and it’s challenging for us to see it losing that distinction under UMBS (Uniform Mortgage Backed Securities).”In April, Freddie Mac announced that its Investor Reporting Change Initiative (IRCI) would revise single-family investor reporting requirements beginning in May 2019, including moving the investor reporting cycle from mid-month to end-of-month and updating remittance cycles.The GSE states that it is making the changes to promote alignment and industry standards for the UMBS.
