Thai oil company PTTEP has named new CEO for its Australian business PTTEP Australasia.Ryan Hartfield is the new CEO of PTTEP AAPTTEP said Thursday that Ryan Hartfield, former Head of Contracts and Procurement at PTTEP Australasia, would take over as new Chief Executive Officer in Australia.“I’m excited to have the opportunity to drive forward PTTEP’s business in Australia as we begin a new chapter,” Hartfield said.Before joining PTTEP AA in 2012, Hartfield worked for Mubadala Development Company in Abu Dhabi, and Woodside.PTTEP Australasia was the operator of the Montara platform in the Timor Sea offshore W. Australia, which exploded and spilled oil into the ocean in 2009. PTTEP was in 2012 fined 510.000 Australian Dollars in the Northern Territory Magistrate’s Court over the Montara incident.The company sold the Montara oil field to Jadestone Energy in July 2018, and transfer of operatorship was completed in August 2019.While no longer having an interest in the Montara field, PTTEP Australasia might still be affected by it. Namely, the company has recently been sued by Indonesian seaweed farmers whose livelihoods have allegedly been destroyed after the 2009 blowout and subsequent oil spill.Also worth reminding, Indonesia in 2017 filed a $2 billion lawsuit against PTTEP for the Montara oil spill saying PTTEP had not shown good faith in resolving problems with Montara oil pollution that reached the area of the East Nusa Tenggara province.PTTEP has claimed that no oil from Montara reached the shores of Indonesia and that no long-term damage was done to the environment in the Timor Sea.Having sold the Montara asset, PTTEP AA currently operates the Cash Maple gas and condensate field, as well as several other permits in the Timor Sea.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

Press Association Serbian playmaker Dusan Tadic hopes he can be part of a new chapter in Southampton’s history, with manager Ronald Koeman close to bringing more fresh faces to St Mary’s. Tours striker Andy Delort is said to be on Koeman’s radar as well as Lorient defender Bruno Ecuele Manga, who could be seen as cover for wantaway Dejan Lovren, who is determined to leave for Liverpool. “There was a lot of interest from other clubs, but I really wanted to finish (the transfer) and I could see Southampton was a good opportunity for me,” Tadic told Southampton’s official YouTube channel. ” I see this as a new step for me, so I want to show myself and to help the club. “I heard the club has a history, and I watched them last year and they played really good football, which is important because I am a football player and I like to play football. “England has one of the best leagues in the world. English football is really good to watch, and it’s going to be a pleasure to play here. “I hope me and Southampton are going to have a good future.” Tadic is confident former Barcelona defender Koeman, who impressed while in charge of Feyenoord in the Eredivisie, can help develop his game. “Feyenoord have had a lot of success because of him, because he developed a lot of players and made them better,” the 25-year-old added. “You always have a lot of respect for his teams because he is a Dutch legend. He is a really good coach and you can expect that his teams will play even better because of him, even if they don’t have great quality. “He is tactically really good, and it’s very difficult to play against his teams.” Saints have seen the likes of England internationals Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert all follow former boss Mauricio Pochettino out of the south-coast club. However, Tadic, signed for what is believed to be in excess of £8million, is convinced Southampton can move forward next season.

But their only incoming on deadline day was that of little-known Kellett, who has only played four times for the Trotters.

United’s other signings of the window were free agent Victor Valdes and 20-year-old Libyan right-back Sadiq El Fitouri from Salford City.

The goalkeeper limped off during Saturday’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League win over Stoke and scans have revealed damaged cartilage. Foster was expected to be included in the England squad for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania and friendly with Italy this month but will now miss out. “It’s rotten news for Ben because he’s been so consistent,” boss Tony Pulis told the club’s official site. “He kept seven clean sheets in 10 games but we have a very able man to step forward in Boaz (Myhill), who has performed well when he’s come into the team. “We’ve got the international break coming up which I hope will give our medical team the chance to work on Ben’s rehab and we will reassess later.” Myhill replaced Foster on Saturday and will deputise while 20-year-old rookie Jack Rose will provide back-up to the former Wales international. Foster could miss the majority of the Baggies’ final run-in – starting at Manchester City on Saturday – and they currently sit eight points above the bottom three. Press Association Ben Foster has been ruled out for at least a month with a knee injury, West Brom have announced.
