NANA公司负责整个North Slope地区的燃料、钻井液和饮用水的分配，同时也是ExxonMobil公司Point Thomson项目的主要燃料供应商。
NANA公司2014年度报告指出Point Thomson项目使得公司的燃料销售创下最高纪录。通过为North Slope 天然气工程输送燃料和尿素，子公司的收入增加约400万美元达到1.302亿美元。
36-employee公司的收购是对Saltchuk地区其他燃料经销公司很好的补充。Delta Western公司为Aleutian Islands、Alaska西部和南部以及Pacific 西北部地区提供服务。该交易将于周一在Saltchuk网站上发布。
Saltchuk分公司North Star 石油公司总裁兼首席执行官Brian Bogen 表示“在Deadhorse地区扩大服务反映了我们对Alaska州和油气客户的长期承诺。”

Saltchuk, a major transportation firm in Alaska, has purchased one of the oil field services businesses of Alaska Native regional corporation NANA.
NANA Oilfield Services distributes fuels, drilling fluids and potable water to camps all over the North Slope. It was the main fuel provider on ExxonMobil's Point Thomson project.
The Point Thomson contract boosted NANA Oilfield's fuel sales to a record high, according to NANA's 2014 annual report. Deliveries of fuel and urea to the North Slope natural gas project helped increase the subsidiary's revenues by nearly $4 million to about $130.2 million.
But revenue decreased by $15.6 million the following year, a reduction NANA said "was related entirely to the decrease in fuel prices." On the upside, the company set a record for the quantity of gallons of fuel sold in fiscal year 2015 and managed to set an earnings record of $5.5 million.
The acquisition of the 36-employee company complements Saltchuk's other fuel distribution company, Delta Western, which offers services to the Aleutian Islands, Western and Southeast Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. The sale was announced Monday on Saltchuk's website.
NANA spokeswoman Blythe Campbell wrote in an email the company is referring all inquiries about the sale to the new owners.
“Expanding services in Deadhorse is reflective of our long term commitment to the state of Alaska and our oil and gas customers,” said Brian Bogen, president and CEO of North Star Petroleum, the petroleum distribution unit of Saltchuk.

Anadarko Petroleum Corp. recorded a first-quarter net loss of $1.034 billion compared with a fourth-quarter 2015 net loss of $1.25 billion and a first-quarter 2015 net loss of $3.268 billion.
“Year to date, we’ve closed monetizations totaling $1.3 billion and are currently in the process of advancing another $700-plus million of divestitures,” said Al Walker, Anadarko chairman, president, and chief executive officer. “Additionally, the dividend reduction and the restructuring of our workforce together are expected to provide approximately $800 million of available cash on an annualized basis,” he said.
Anadarko earlier this year said it anticipates an initial 2016 budget of $2.8 billion, down 50% from the company’s actual 2015 capital investments and almost 70% from the 2014 total (OGJ Online, Feb. 1, 2016).
In the Delaware basin of West Texas during the quarter, Anadarko’s appraisal and delineation program resulted in an increase of its net recoverable resource estimate in the basin to more than 2 billion boe from its previous estimate of more than 1 billion boe.
In its international offshore segment, the firm says the TEN development—encompassing Tweneboa, Enyenra, and Ntomme fields offshore Ghana—is more than 90% complete and remains on schedule for start of oil production in this year’s third quarter.
Anadarko continued its appraisal program offshore Ivory Coast, encountering 100 net ft of vertical pay in the firm’s first horizontal deepwater well at Paon-5A. The firm plans to drill the Paon-3AR sidetrack well in the second quarter followed by a drillstem and interference testing program as it works to advance the Paon discovery toward commerciality.

This is the second major energy deal that Pakistan has signed this year. In February, Pakistan penned a long term agreement with Qatar to import LNG.
As per the agreement Qatargas will supply fuel to Pakistan State Oil (PSO) from 2016-2031. The price for each LNG cargo in a particular month has been agreed at 13.37 percent of Brent where Brent value is average of the preceding three months. Qatargas will supply 3.75 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG to PSO.
The South Asian nation has been facing severe gas shortage since last few years. To augment energy supplies, Pakistan has stepped up effort to attract foreign investment, especially in the oil, gas and LNG sectors.

HOUSTON -- International oilfield services company, Expro, has successfully completed a plug and abandonment (P&A) project in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) for Apache.
Expro recently expanded its business capabilities to offer fully integrated well abandonment services, including late-life reservoir management, permanent reservoir abandonment and post abandonment monitoring.
The Apache work comprised the pre-abandonment and plugging of wells in the ultra deepwater Atwater Valley and Mississippi Canyon areas.
In March 2016, Expro utilized its well intervention services to provide the first phase of abandonment of the wells. This involved plugging, cutting and perforating, using slickline and electric-line cased hole applications to gain access to the wells and allow circulation.
Kevin Illingworth, global well abandonment manager, comments: “Our experienced teams provide integrated products and services, underpinned by the subsurface expertise within our Expro Group Integrated Services (EGIS) product line. This includes well integrity management, well testing, subsea and wireless well solutions, for temporary and permanent well abandonment.
“Expro is uniquely placed to understand the challenges that come with the re-entry and abandonment of an aging well population. We were delighted to demonstrate this on the project with Apache, and continue our global relationship with them.”
Expro has worked with Apache for over 10 years, primarily in its Europe CIS region, supplying subsea, well testing, intervention and sampling services, and well integrity software.

Houston-based offshore drilling company Hercules Offshore has given itself some breathing space as it faces bankruptcy having defaulted on a $450m loan.
Creditors have agreed to extend a forbearance agreement through to May 31 as a solution is sought to stop the company falling into bankruptcy for a second time in less than a year.
The reprieve brings some bad news to Hercules, as during the forbearance period it will not have access to funds held in order to accept delivery of newbuild jackup rig Hercules Highlander from Singapore’s Jurong Shipyard.
Hercules said it is currently in discussions with the yard over the situation as unless the rig is accepted for delivery by May 5, the company will be in default of the shipbuilding contract.

Bill Barrett Corporation (NYSE: BBG) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with an unaffiliated third party to sell certain non-core assets located in the Uinta Basin for cash proceeds of approximately $30 million. The transaction is expected to close on or before June 30, 2016, and is subject to customary closing conditions. The assets produced approximately 1,000 Boe/d (63% oil) during the first quarter of 2016 and had estimated proved reserves of 2 million barrels of oil equivalent (87% proved developed) as of December 31, 2015. Based on the Company's internal estimates, the expected 2016 operating cash flow from the divested properties will be less than $2 million based on current strip pricing.
Chief Executive Officer and President Scot Woodall commented, 'The sale of another portion of our non-core Uinta Basin assets at attractive sale metrics further streamlines our operational portfolio and improves operating metrics. Given the current outlook for commodity prices and a focus on our core DJ Basin assets, we had no development activity planned for this year. The divestiture will minimally impact our 2016 production and cash flow, while improving our operating cost structure due to the higher-cost nature of the properties. The proceeds from this transaction will be used to strengthen our balance sheet by adding to our cash position.'
Wells Fargo Securities, LLC advised the Company with respect to the Uinta Basin divestiture process.

A huge wildfire has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Fort McMurray - nearly all the residents of the Canadian city.
The blaze has destroyed a number of homes, dropping ash on the streets of the city in the province of Alberta.
Fleeing residents have caused gridlock on the main road leading from the city, 380km (235 miles) north of Edmonton.
Fort McMurray - which lies in Alberta's oil sands region - has a population of more than 60,000 people.
"This is the biggest evacuation we have seen in the history of the province in terms of fire," said Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.
Local resident Mark Durocher said that "if you just walk outside, you feel it (ash) falling on you."
"You see it floating in the air. I can take a broom and brush it off my deck," Mr Durocher was quoted as saying by the Globe and Mail.
Homes in at least two neighbourhood have been gutted, and the fire has now spread to Highway 63 - the main road into Fort McMurray from the south.
Firefighters are continuing to tackle the blaze, but the local authorities have called for reinforcements, including a water-dumping helicopter.
So far there have been no reports of any injuries.

Oil-and-gas producers Midstates Petroleum Co Inc and Ultra Petroleum Corp have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, joining several companies that have been unable to meet debt obligations after a steep decline in energy prices.
Oklahoma-based Midstates and Houston-based Ultra have a combined $5.8 billion in debt, according to court documents filed in Houston's U.S. Bankruptcy Court over the weekend.
The two join dozens of U.S. oil and gas producers that have filed for bankruptcy since the start of 2015. After years of using junk bonds to fuel a frenzy of shale drilling, energy prices began to decline in late 2014 and left many exploration and production companie unable to service their obligations.
Both companies entered bankruptcy as banks are conducting regular six-month reviews of their lending to energy producers. There are signs that banks may take a tougher line this spring, deepening the financial crisis for many producers.
Midstates said it had reached agreements with significant groups of creditors to cuts its $2 billion of debt by more than $1.8 billion.
Ultra said in court filings it planned to engage creditors to reduce $3.8 billion in debt, all of which is unsecured.
Midstates went public in 2012, raising nearly $500 million. Its shares were down 34 percent at about 19 cents in early over-the-counter trading. Its stock was trading at more than $70 per share when energy prices began to fall in 2014.
Shares of Ultra were halted at 31 cents.
Ultra produced 290 billion cubic feet of natural gas in 2015, and operates in Wyoming, Utah and Pennsylvania. Midstates operates in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma and produced 12 million barrels of oil equivalent in 2015.
Despite the pace of energy-producer bankruptcies, to date there has been little impact on U.S. energy production, undercutting some analysts' expectations for a sudden output decline.
Some producers that entered bankruptcy are beginning to emerge, but even those that eliminated all of their debt may struggle to grow again.

Norwegian energy giant Statoil said it has agreed to divest its operated Marcellus properties in the US state of West Virginia to EQT Corporation for US$407 million.
EQT will acquire 62,500 net acres, and current natural gas production of 50 MMcfe per day from Statoil USA Onshore Properties, a unit of Statoil. The transaction is expected to close on or about July 8, 2016.
Primarily located in Wetzel, Tyler, and Harrison Counties of West Virginia, the acquisition adds a “sizeable amount of acreage” within EQT’s core development area and complements the company’s adjacent operations in Wetzel County, EQT said in a statement on Monday.
The 62,500 acre acquisition includes existing Marcellus production and approximately 500 undeveloped locations that are expected to have an average lateral length of 5,600 feet.
According to EQT, this acquisition increases the company’s core undeveloped Marcellus acreage by 29%. The acquisition also includes drilling rights on an estimated 53,000 net acres that are undeveloped and prospective for the deep Utica.
Assets include 31 Marcellus wells, 24 of which are currently producing – three complete, not online and four drilled, not complete. The resource potential of the acreage is estimated at 9.2 Tcf; and 87% of the acreage is either held by production or has lease expiration terms that extend beyond 2018, EQT said.
