Qatar Petroleum has signed an agreement to farm into Eni’s Block A5A in the Angoche basin offshore Mozambique.Following approval by the government, Eni as the operator will have a 34 percent participating interest, Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) a 15 percent participating interest, Sasol a 25.5 percent participating interest, and Qatar Petroleum a 25.5 percent participating interest. Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, and President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum said, “We are pleased to sign this agreement, with our valuable partner Eni, to participate in exploring this frontier offshore basin and strengthen our presence in Mozambique.”Block A5A lies in the Angoche basin and is located adjacent to block A5B in which an affiliate of Qatar Petroleum owns a 10 percent participating interest. The company entered into an agreement to enter the adjacent block with an ExxonMobil affiliate in December 2018.Block A5A was officially awarded to Eni in October 2018, covers an area of 5,133 square kilometers in a completely unexplored zone off the city of Angoche.Although the block is underexplored, operators saw success in Mozambique during exploration of Area 4 in the offshore Rovuma basin resulting in Coral, Mamba, and Agulha gas fields with estimated 2,407 billion cubic meters of gas in place.Coral is being developed using an FLNG vessel with a capacity of around 3.4 million tons per year.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) granted $3 million to San Mateo County to improve the Colma Creek Flood Control Channel recently. Upgrades will protect the City of South San Francisco from tributary flooding, mitigate the effects of sea level rise beyond the year 2060, and double the channel’s level of flood protection to 100-year events.The project encompasses sediment and debris removal, repair or replacement of damaged culverts, and restoration of impacted native vegetation within the project limits.The $4.2 million scheme is funded by a $3 million hazard mitigation grant from FEMA, with non-federal sources covering the remaining $1.2 million.FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program helps states, territories, federally-recognized tribes, local communities and certain private, non-profit organizations become more resilient to potential infrastructure damage and reduce future disaster costs.
Freshman forward Penelope Hocking has scored 6 goals and recorded four assists as a Trojan. She is also a member of the Under-20 Women’s National Team. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)Now halfway through Pac-12 conference play, the No. 2 women’s soccer team will head to Pullman, Wash. on Saturday to take on No. 19 Washington State.After beating Arizona 2-0 and Arizona State 3-1 last weekend, the Trojans look to continue their winning streak and improve upon their overall record of 11-1-1. USC has conceded 5 goals this season, compared to scoring 36. They have outshot their opponents in all 13 matches. Aside from their loss against No. 2 Stanford on Sept. 30, the Trojans are undefeated with 10 shutouts so far. The Trojans have consistently been the first to put points on the board, dominating possession and controlling the pace of the game. They have held opponents to an average of .375 goals per game this season, the best in the Pac-12. Redshirt sophomore goalie Kaylie Collins has seven shutouts, the most in the conference.The Cougars (10-2-0) are coming off a two-game losing streak, their most recent loss being against Utah this past Sunday. The Utes pulled off a 1-0 upset in overtime with a converted penalty kick, handing Washington State its second loss of the season. The Cougars outshot the Utes 9-8, but could not find the back of the net for the first time this season.Coming off two undefeated home games this season, the Women of Troy will hit the road again. “Anytime you go on the road into an environment … where a team is feeling confident, and they are feeling very good at home, we’ve got to make sure we lock in and really focus,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said.Even though the Trojans beat the Cougars 2-1 in last year’s match, McAlpine said that Washington State is a strong team this season and will present a challenge.“They can score, and they can defend, and teams like that are very dangerous,” McAlpine said.The Trojans will prepare for competitive offensive players like Washington State junior forward Morgan Weaver, who has 7 goals this season, tied with USC’s top scorer senior forward Leah Pruitt. Weaver ranks ninth in the country with an average of 5.08 shots per game. Junior defender Maddy Haro ranks second in the nation in assists with 10 and will put up a tough offensive front against the Trojan defense under the leadership of Collins and senior defender Ally Prisock.After a double-header weekend, the Trojans took a rest day before heading into practice to prepare for their game against the Cougars.“Now that we are done with the weekend, we just want to take a good rest day and get recovered,” redshirt sophomore attacker Savannah DeMelo said earlier this week. “And then we want to go into practice working hard and getting ready for Washington State, because we know that they are a great opponent and it’s just going to keep our momentum going into the next [Pac-12] games.”Saturday’s game will be broadcast on Pac-12 Network at 7 p.m.
