After much anticipation, the Grateful Dead finally released their 12-CD box set, July 1978: The Complete Recordings. Focusing on five shows held between July 1-8 of 1978, the complete set is packed with hours of prime Grateful Dead goodness.In addition to the full box set, the Dead have shared a separate release of their performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO from July 8th, 1978. This was the second night of a two-night stand, and the band’s second show at Red Rocks ever. The Dead would go on to play the iconic venue for a total of 20 times, setting a long-held sold-out show record that was recently broken by Widespread Panic.Fortunately, the entirety of the July 8th show is also on Spotify, which means we can happily share and listen to the pristine audio from this show. From the opener “Bertha” to the finale, a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” which was released that year, this is some of the best Grateful Dead music around. Enjoy!

U.S. oil major ExxonMobil can’t stop finding oil in Guyana. After a string of discoveries in the past two years, the company on Wednesday said it had made two additional discoveries offshore Guyana at the Tilapia-1 and Haimara-1 wells, bringing the total number of discoveries on the Stabroek Block to 12.Stena Carron drillship. Author: Ronnie RobertsonThe discoveries build on the previously announced estimated recoverable resource of more than 5 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek block.Exxon has said that the Tilapia-1 is the fourth discovery in the Turbot area that includes the Turbot, Longtail and Pluma discoveries. Tilapia-1 encountered approximately 305 feet (93 meters) of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoir and was drilled to a depth of 18,786 feet (5,726 meters) in 5,850 feet (1,783 meters) of water. The well is located approximately 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometers) west of the Longtail-1 well.The Noble Tom Madden drillship began drilling the well on January 7, and will next drill the Yellowtail-1 well, approximately six miles (10 kilometers) west of Tilapia-1 in the Turbot area.

The Stena Carron drillship began drilling the well on Jan. 3 and will next return to the Longtail discovery to complete a well test.Good news for FPSO playersExxonMobil discoveries are also good news for suppliers and builders of floating production units, as the oil company has said there is potential for at least five floating, production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO) on the Stabroek Block producing more than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.The Liza Phase 1 development is progressing on schedule and is expected to begin producing up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day in early 2020, utilizing the Liza Destiny FPSO, Exxon said.Liza Phase 2 is expected to startup by mid-2022. Pending government and regulatory approvals, sanctioning is expected in the first quarter of 2019 for the project, which will use a second FPSO designed to produce up to 220,000 barrels per day. Sanctioning of a third development, Payara, is also expected in 2019, and startup is expected as early as 2023.The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometers). ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is operator and holds 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. holds 30 percent interest and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, holds 25 percent interest.
