According to Equinor, the Mariner reservoirs have up to 3 billion barrels of oil in place, a 50% increase on what was originally assumed, and the estimated recovery rate has already been increased by 20 percent. Mariner is expected to produce annual average plateau rates of around 55,000 barrels of oil per day and up to 70,000 barrels of oil per day at peak production.
“By gathering and interpreting new seismic data we have improved our understanding of the reservoirs. This has resulted in fewer and better placed wells and increased resources since the project was sanctioned in 2012. With the significant volumes in place, we see clear potential to further increase the oil recovery from the Mariner field and will proactively seek opportunities to do so through the application of new technology, additional drilling and future tie back opportunities,” said Anders Opedal, executive vice president for Technology, Projects and Drilling in Equinor.

Even if he's out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland's time as Spider-Man isn't done.
He's still under contract for one more go as Spidey of course, as he himself said back in 2016. But speaking to Entertainment Weekly at D23 Expo, Holland seemed downright jubilant about his future as Marvel's — but not necessarily the MCU's — friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.
"[A]ll I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life," Holland said. "It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it.

YouTube, everyone's favorite place to become radicalized, announced this week that it will no longer allow videos targeted at children that have specific types of disturbing content. This move follows years of criticism that the video hosting site allowed bad actors to put violent and otherwise troubling content in front of kids.
