Eni Drills Evans Shoal Appraisal Well in Offshore Australia

Eni announced the completion of the Evans Shoal North-1 appraisal well in the Evans Shoal gas field in the Timor Sea, Australia. The field is located offshore in the NT/P48 exploration permit in the north Bonaparte Basin, some 300 km northwest of Darwin.

Livorsi Raw Water Flow System

Livorsi Water Flow Gauge

The Raw Water Flow system is a new patented system that indicates your engine’s water flow volume. This system warns you of a potential problem or danger that would otherwise not be indicated by a water pressure gauge alone, thus preventing cosmetic and structural damage to expensive exhaust headers, intercoolers and cooling systems. What is Water Flow? Water flow is a real indication of water surging through a cooling system such as: exhaust headers, sea strainers, impellers, Gen sets, intercoolers and any other marine or industrial applications that utilize water flow. Why You Need It.

Winch Malfunction Leaves Parasailors aloft for Three Hours

Two passengers were successfully launched from a parasail vessel for a ride aloft. As they were being winched in the winds picked up, and the parasail towline winch became inoperable and 800 feet of towline payed out stranding the passengers aloft. Additionally, the vessel was unable to make way through the water while battling rough seas and the strong winds, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a safety alert derived from a recent parasail casualty investigation. The cause of the winch malfunction was due to overheating of the hydraulic power system which occurred because of an inadequate oil cooling system (through hull fittings / scoop type system) that relied solely on the vessel's movement through the water.
