Apache Corparation

...The Company also had approximately $118 million accrued as of December 31, 2011, for an insurance contingency as a member of Oil Insurance Limited (OIL). This insurance co-op insures specific property, pollution liability, and other catastrophic risks of the Company. As part of its membership, the Company is contractually committed to pay a withdrawal premium if we elect to withdraw from OIL. Apache does not anticipate withdrawal from the insurance pool; however, the potential withdrawal premium is calculated annually based on past losses and the nature of our asset base. Insurance Program We maintain insurance coverage that includes coverage for physical damage to our assets, third party liability, workers’ compensation, employers’ liability, sudden pollution, and other risks. Our insurance coverage includes deductibles that must be met prior to recovery. Additionally, our insurance is subject to exclusions and limitations, and there is no assurance that such coverage will adequately protect us against liability from all potential consequences and damages. Our current insurance policies covering physical damage to our assets provide $1 billion in coverage per occurrence. These policies also provide sudden pollution coverage. Coverage for damage to our U.S. Gulf of Mexico assets specifically resulting from a named windstorm, however, is subject to a maximum of $250 million per named windstorm, which includes a self-insured retention of 40 percent of the losses above a $100...

...I choose to write my foundations paper on an organization that is based in my area that I live in, and although it is in my area it is not just a local organization but one that actually has the ability to span across the nation with support from local companies, as well as government agencies. The organization with which I am speaking is the Freestore Foodbank. I will go into the details of the non-profit organization in further detail in this paper. The Freestore began in 1971 by a man named Frank Gerson who worked in Cincinnati’s incinerator. He saw that there was too many household items that were being wasted when there were so many in his community that needed help. So this man quit his job, and started the non-profit business out of his apartment. By 1979 it had grown too big for his little apartment to handle, so he decided to get a warehouse to handle the sorting, and distribution of the food items for his community. Also at this time the Freestore became a founding member of Feeding America, which helped the organization evolve into the Freestore Foodbank. Today the Freestore is one of over 200 foodbanks within the Feeding America networks, which helps serve communities across the whole nation, not just in the Cincinnati area. They distribute over 19 million meals through a network of 275 community agencies. www.fsfb.org. This is an astonishing number of meals that are handed out to those that are going hungry, which is the organizations main mission. No one......

Apache Case Study

...1081890 Colin Sproat 1100503 Apache Case Study Colin Sproat & Zhimeng Ye FIN 413 section A1 Barbra Jamieson Zhimeng Ye 1081890 Colin Sproat 1100503 1. Systematic Risk – Insecurity arising from daily operating activities, such as product delivery and oil drilling; as well as its financing activities, such as issuance of bonds and shares. Price Risk – Uncertainty about future profits and losses occurring from selling un-hedged oil & gas in the market. Hedging Risk – The Chance of foregoing any additional profits if prices were to increase dramatically under the collar strategy. Political Risk – Uncertainty stemming from investing internationally and the associated foreign policies in different countries. 2. When prices are up the firm has a higher income therefore will have larger cash flows directed towards investing and operating activities. However, when prices are down, the company tends to report lower (even negative) net income and have smaller cash flows going into operating and investing activities. Financing activities were kept fairly stable due to the required debt-to-capital ratio to keep good credit so cash flows had little effect on the financing activities. In addition, price fluctuations can also affect the amount of taxes Apache has to pay. Since when prices are low, the firm is able to defer its taxes whereas when their high, Apache has to pay up. Operating activities are affected when oil and gas prices fluctuate. Apache wishes to produce and sell......

...This was my first footstep of starting my degree life. First day of attending the Foundation of Business course, the feeling of tension filled me up. The main reason was because I have to adapt the new course and environment. This course is taught by Ms. Khor Siu Gek, an approachable and friendly lecturer. When I first glance over the module guide, this is quite a different course since it contains 100% coursework mark. In the first lecture class, Ms. Khor explained about what we are going to do throughout this course. The 100% coursework mark is divided into four categories which are portfolio, group project, essay on a given assignment and attendance. We need to provide evidence such as draft, notes and pictures as a proof to show the accomplishment of learning process. Some activities will be carried out in every tutorial class to ensure that students are participating in classes. Then, we need to express our feeling and provide relevant theories learnt in the reflective report weekly. This is to improve our learning skills, communication skills, time management skills and critical thinking skills. I can still remember clearly that Ms. Khor had made the introduction part became very interesting. She gave us a roll of toilet paper and asked us to take how many pieces we wanted to take. I felt nervous because I did not know what activities would be carried out. Finally, I took a piece of toilet paper. After that, she asked us to tell our secret according to the number of...

An Apache Portrait

...Baum Professor Noble-Ward HIST170D-4840 24 February 2015 Apache women and Polygamous settlers "Apachie women and their white husband, Arizonia 1879," notes the handwritten caption for this hand-colored portrait. That same year the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a ruling against polygamy. "Everything there has changed," wrote T. S. Hitchcock, a retired dentist, who submitted this photo. This photo was captioned by Margaret G. Zackowitz in the National Geographic stock, titled, “Family Portrait”. In 1870, with Brigham Young, the leader of the Mormon indoctrinate in Utah, the Mormons gain power politically, ushering the idea of polygamy in the West, claims New Perspectives on the West article, on PBS.org. Though the Native Americans became citizens in 1871, not sovereign nations, (PBS), many were destitute and hungry with little resources after their land had been seized, now struggling on reservations. Because the Apaches were known to be polygamists, many sold women into arranged marriages where the father in the tribe would obtain a dowry from male settlers in the Southwest. (Francis,Valentine). This can be interpreted as a life of slavery or otherwise today known as “human trafficking”, hard labor, and a lifetime of despair. Though the Apache women were formally treated with elite status, the late 1800’s brought change in the value system as the tribes began to starve and dwindle. (Francis,Valentine). The Apache women were even looked down upon by their own tribe,......

Alcohol and the Apache Reservation

...Alcohol and the Apache Reservation Frank A. Parkinson Grand Canyon University RN-BSN Alcohol and the Apache Reservation The Apache Indian Reservation is a place I am very familiar with. As a registered nurse I have worked and served the people of this area for nearly three years now. I also grew up in the area surrounding the reservation so I have first hand knowledge of the health status of this community. These people are part of the American Indian or Alaska Native group and I will be using the data from these groups as well as direct data from the White Mountain Apache Tribe to compare the health of these people against that of the national average. The primary focus on this essay with is that of the disease of Alcoholism that plagues these people. The tribe is extremely impoverished and well below averages on education. Department of Labor statistics indicated that Navajo and Apache Counties were the sixth and seventh poorest counties in the nation. With a median per capita income less than 50 percent of that of the State of Arizona, 40 percent of the residents of these two counties were living below the poverty line. Unemployment on the reservation peaked at 61 percent during this time—ten times the state average and many times the national rate. With a median per capita income less than 50 percent of that of the State of Arizona, 40 percent of the residents of these two counties were living below the poverty line. Unemployment on the......

Apache Case

...introduction of Apache and the issues under consideration. Apache Corporation was conceived 50 years ago. Its gestation, with no small amount of planning, has yielded a company that is built to last. Apache was formed in 1954 with $250,000 of investor capital with the simple concept of becoming a significant and profitable oil company. Today, Apache Corporation is one of the world's top independent oil and gas exploration and production companies. The journey to this point was fueled by Apache's contrarian approach to business. Apache Corporation is an independent energy company that explores for, develops and produces natural gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids. Apache’s mission is to grow a profitable global exploration and production company in a safe and environmentally responsible manner for the long-term benefit of our shareholders. The value’s Apache was founded upon — integrity, respect, individual initiative, innovation, and striving for excellence. Apache's continued growth and global expansion depend on these values to guide strategies, decisions and actions into the future. Apache had just closed on the acquisition on Repsol in Egypt’s Western desert and, along with its partner Shell Overseas Holdings, had also acquired Fletcher Challenge Energy, for a combined cost of $1 billion. The value of such acquisitions, however, depended in large part on the future prices of oil and gas. To decrease its exposure to oil and gas price volatility, Apache had begun......

Caso Apache

...Gestión de Riesgo – Apache Corporation La compañía Apache se dedica a la producción y exploración de petróleo y gas natural, rubro en el cual había tenido mucho éxito y un crecimiento digno de envidiar. Maximizar la producción y minimizar costos era la estrategia seguida por la empresa, así también buscaba ser líder de la región combinado con negocios internacionales del mismo rubro. Los mayores riesgos que enfrenta Apache son la volatilidad del precio de petróleo y gas natural ya que son comodities, por lo tanto, Apache no tiene control sobre su precio de venta. Ya que recientemente adquirió otras compañías, debe en el futuro saldar deudas, la volatilidad del precio de sus productos afecta los flujos de caja que genera y así afectar el compromiso que tiene con los acreedores. Al tener problemas para saldar su deuda, Apache cae en default, cae su rating y su flexibilidad para una futura deuda. Por la misma volatilidad del precio, puede ocurrir que el costo no sea lo suficientemente bajo como para que el negocio sea rentable, pero cerrar una planta tiene altos costos y puede peligrar el producto. En el tipo de negocio en que trabaja Apache, el riesgo de volatilidad es controlable mediante el uso de derivados como por ejemplo Opciones (put, call), Futuros y Forwards. Esta opción de cobertura tiene un costo por lo que el mercado es escéptico en su uso. Para manejar este riesgo de volatilidad de flujos de caja, por la volatilidad del precio del petróleo y el......

The Foundation...

...Joshua Lecour 15 October 2015 Essay #2 The majority of adults today have a stable home life, which helps to build a stable foundation by the time they reach grade school. That’s all in thanks to having loving and caring parents, grandparents and caretakers to guide kids so that they can preform at the highest levels in life, especially scholastically. In a perfect world having a solid system like this to build on would be the perfect catapult for success in America’s school systems. Unfortunately, most children in the inner cities aren’t blessed to have a stable home because of the absence of consistent parental figures in the house. Sometimes these households have one parent within them because of divorce or other more saddening circumstance like the death of a parent. Death leads to an absence within a child life that will persist into their adult life. Despite the timing or reason behind these situations they greatly affect a child’s confidence, self-esteem and self worth. Instability within the household causes a child to suffer anxiety disorders and self-confidence issues, depending on the situations that occur like physical or substance abuse by the parent, which is taken with them into the classroom. This kind of conditioning at home also shapes the ability to interact with other students in a positive or negative way, which also leads to poor academic and social standing within a school setting. The easiest way to remedy the issues of poor performance in school......

... The Apache Corporation is an independent oil a gas exploration production company. Towards the late nineteen nineties and early twenty first century, Apache had completed several acquisitions. They included the following: Repsol which is in Egypt’s Western desert, Shell Overseas Holdings a partner of Repsol and Fletcher Challenge Energy. They combined for a total cost of $1billion. In an effort to minimize the volatility of the price of gas, Apache began a limited hedging program. The management team was aware of the underlying risks associated with hedging and they ultimately had to determine if they should continue hedging long term. If so, should they extend their current program beyond hedging the revenues from acquisitions. Within this case study, we will discuss major risks, how Apache Corporation is managing risks and whether or not they should be. We will also discuss how Apache could manage their risk as well as define what is the goal of hedging. Major Risks The biggest risk within this industry is the price of oil and gas. History has proven how volatile prices can be. Exhibit 9 indicated approximately a 70% range of price fluctuation between 1996 and 2000. The equation is relatively straight forward. When the prices are up, the industry is making money and is traditionally eager to hire new employees. When the prices are down, the industry is losing money and there is a strong likelihood that layoffs will follow. Apache, along with......

...The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is a reputable open source foundation that has a history of developing and maintaining many open source products, including the Apache Web Server. In April 2010, the ASF discovered that their server hosting issue-tracking software was “hacked.” You can read a report on the incident on the following Web link or obtain a PDF of the article from your instructor: http://blogs.apache.org/infra/entry/apache_org_04_09_2010 This report documents how a vulnerability was exploited, which solutions worked, which didn't work, and the measures planned by the Apache Infrastructure Team to mitigate future risks. Security is a layered process. Although the hackers took advantage of a vulnerable third-party Web application to gain root access to ASF’s Linux infrastructure, you need to focus on the layers of security that worked and failed on the Linux infrastructure, and how this vulnerability could have been avoided with a more secure Linux server. Discuss how the hackers took advantage of the JIRA daemon. What role did pluggable authentication modules (PAM) play in this process? What are the security measures that you would recommend to mitigate such risks in the future? Participate in this discussion by engaging in a meaningful debate regarding the role of the JIRA daemon and PAM in the system breach and suggest security measures. You must defend your choices with a valid rationale. At the end of the discussion, write a summary of......
