The OGC says the long-term goal of this program is to obtain a representative sampling of decommissioned wells throughout Northeast B.C.During a survey in July, the OGC says they were able to identify four well sites where methane was detected.

Chelsea manager explains why Alvaro Morata wasnt on Saturdays lineup

first_imgMorata wasn’t even on the bench for Chelsea’s match against champions Manchester City. Sarri explains the reasoning behind it.Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says that Alvaro Morata understands why he wasn’t considered for the squad’s Saturday’s 2-0 win over Manchester City. He also reassured his striker that he does indeed have a future at the club, ESPN reported.Morata was left out of Chelsea’s overall lineup for the first time this season. He has yet to win the support of fans since his big-money move to the Blues.Chelsea’s win came as surprise to many spectators after a dip in form recently led to just one victory in four games.

Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“I think it is normal, it was a choice for this kind of match,” Sarri told reporters at Stamford Bridge.“I don’t know if in Brighton we will play in the same way or not, maybe not. I don’t know. I think Alvaro is able to understand that it is only a tactical decision, it is not the final choice.“We thought yesterday that for the first time in the season that there was a possibility to have more spaces – so we wanted to try with Eden – because for the first time there was a possibility to play on the counter-attack.“Willian, Hazard, and Pedro are really very suitable for this kind of play, so it is a normal choice. I think that it is really a very good option and maybe we will try it again in the future. Especially for certain matches.”last_img read more
