Uber rolls into South Bend

first_imgSince its founding in 2009, Uber has spread to more than 100 cities – and since it added South Bend to that list a week ago, it has already won the support of many students who see it as a streamlined way to find a ride.Mary McGraw | The Observer Uber offers an alternative to traditional cab companies by integrating technology in the process of finding transportation. The system is simple: users download a mobile app, check for a driver in their area, wait to be picked up and pay with a credit card. Registered drivers get online any time they’re available, locate anyone who requests their services by their GPS coordinates and pick passengers up using their own vehicles.The term “sharing economy” is tossed around to describe this untraditional system, and Kristen Collett-Schmitt, associate teaching professor in the Finance department, said the concept appears to have evolved in the last 10 to 15 years alongside emerging new technologies that allow people to collaborate and allocate scarce resources. The rising popularity of Uber and other similar businesses such as Airbnb reflects a cultural shift in the past decade, she said.“Social networking has increased the willingness of individuals to actually share with each other, encouraging this type of economy,” Collett-Schmitt said. “One might argue that the ‘sharing economy’ is not just a function of changing technology, but also the financial crisis of 2008 and the uncertainty that still exists regarding the stability of the economy.“Economic uncertainty reminds us that resources are scarce, and increasingly-present environmental concerns encourage us to use resources more wisely. I think the ‘sharing economy’ supports this idea completely.”Junior Rachel Broghammer took advantage of an Uber promotion offering free rides during Labor Day weekend. As a native of San Francisco, where Uber started, she had used it in the past and said she was “really kind of shocked” to hear it would come to South Bend.“It’s really, really popular in San Francisco, partly because taxis there are so pricey,” she said. “And you don’t have to wait as long if you can find a driver that’s closer to me.”Her first South Bend experience with Uber went well, she said, but she expects it will improve as it becomes more widely-used – some students were unable to get rides because no local drivers were available at certain times.“Our driver came right up in the car we expected, and he was really incredibly nice, a South Bend resident who said he does this on his days off,” Broghammer said. “Everything was really nice and clean; they really research their drivers.”She said she’s comfortable with Uber because of the comprehensive review system available, where riders can give feedback about particular drivers that’s available for other riders to view. As it takes off in South Bend, though, it will likely take time before there are enough reviews to be helpful, she said.“With the reviews, you know ahead of time what you’re getting,” she said. “You don’t necessarily know that about a taxi. … For me, I think I would be very comfortable with using it anytime if I’d looked at the reviews of the driver.”For Broghammer, there are still situations in which she’d still stick to a traditional cab instead, though.“The only time I would prefer a traditional cab would be going from something off campus late at night, because at least then you can pack a lot of people into the cab,” she said. “And even if I don’t know the driver, I can trust the cab company.”Senior Quinn O’Heeney used the free ride promotion last week with a group of seven people and said it went well. The driver arrived at library circle when he said he would and was polite and funny, O’Heeney said. He said regular cabs would be more affordable in some situations, but the Uber payment system is more appealing overall. “I would rather use a flag drop cab if it was just me or maybe one other person since $3 each would probably be less expensive,” he said. “In any other situation, I would prefer Uber because of the cashless aspect of it. I have been in many cab rides where one person pays way too much because people don’t have small bills and the driver doesn’t have correct change.”There are limitations to Uber’s availability — South Bend International Airport officials issued a statement Aug. 28 to inform travelers that Uber drivers would not be allowed to pick up passengers at the airport, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune.The “sharing economy” has run into legal issues in some cities, especially with regard to licensing and taxing, and Collett-Schmitt said this is because laws are not yet written to handle this new type of consumption.“I believe these concerns are legitimate,” she said. “The goods in this type of economy might also not be subject to the same laws that protect consumers. With car-sharing services, it’s not always clear who would be liable in the case of an accident. “Taxis bring up the larger issues involving regulation. Many large cities require drivers of taxis to purchase ‘medallions’ or licenses, which are very expensive. . . . This regulation might also stabilize prices and require drivers to meet certain quality standards, thus protecting consumers.”Collett-Schmitt said she sees services like Uber as solving market failure by generating transactions that would not otherwise take place if new technology had not lowered transaction costs. In this way, the additional transactions benefit society, she said.“Services like Uber will also create competition for taxi drivers who had not previously been innovative because of the lack of competition,” she said. “One hopes this will encourage producers that offer substitute or complementary goods to be more innovative.“Or, as the ‘sharing economy’ becomes more popular, larger, more well-known companies that already offer complementary or substitute goods may invest in goods that are part of the ‘sharing economy,’ like a car manufacturer teaming up with Uber.”Tags: Ride sharing, sharing economy, South Bend, taxi, Uberlast_img read more

Exxon makes 15th oil discovery offshore Guyana

first_img…pushes Stabroek Block beyond 6B barrelsBy Jarryl BryanFresh on the heels of first oil, ExxonMobil announced on Monday that it had made its 15th oil find off the coast of Guyana and the fifth for this year, this time striking oil in its Mako-1 well southeast of the Liza Field.Exxon Senior Vice President Mike CousinsIn a statement, Exxon explained that the discovery added to the more than six billion oil equivalent barrels estimated for the Block. According to Exxon, the drill ship encountered 164 feet of high-quality oil-bearing reservoirs.The Mako-1 well was drilled in 5315 feet of water and is just 10 kilometres southeast of the Liza Field. This is Exxon’s fifth oil find for the year, with the last oil find being the Tripletail discovery in September.In his comments accompanying the statement, Exxon’s Senior Vice President in charge of exploration and new ventures, Mike Cousins, gave credit to its full-wave seismic technology for the rapid development of the Block.“New discoveries in this world-class basin have the potential to support additional developments. Our proprietary full-wave seismic inversion technology continues to help us better define our discovered resource and move rapidly to the development phase,” Cousins said.In a Ministry of the Presidency statement, Energy Department head, Dr Mark Bynoe called this a historic moment. He also noted that his department would continue to strengthen its capacity and put in place a legislative framework.Diagram of the Stabroek Block showing some of the previous discoveries“This discovery by ExxonMobil and its partners comes on the heels of the start of oil production. The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is experiencing a truly historic moment that has all the ingredients to facilitate a paradigm shift towards sustained economic transformation,” Dr Bynoe was quoted as saying.Meanwhile, Exxon continues its drilling activities with four drill ships to further explore and appraise new resources. The company also noted that pending Government approvals and project sanctioning of a third development, production from the Payara field north of the Liza discoveries could start as early as 2023, with oil production reaching an estimated 220,000 barrels per day.Top producerIt was only a few months ago that Guyana was ranked second in the world, after only Russia, for most oil finds this year. This was revealed in a report by Norwegian research company Rystad Energy, which compiled all the discoveries of oil around the world and came up with a list of the top 10 countries.At the time, Russia was followed closely by Guyana, where oil was found in the Liza 1 field in the Stabroek Block by the US-based ExxonMobil and in the Orinduik Block by British oil firm Tullow.A distant third was Cyprus. They were followed by South Africa, Malaysia, Norway, Angola and Indonesia. The United Kingdom (UK) and the US were in the cellar on the top 10 oil finds list.Commenting on the steep rise in oil drilling in the Caribbean, the report had noted that in 2013, only seven offshore wells were drilled in the Region. Now, the report noted, 23 new exploration wells are expected for 2019.“Rystad Energy expects the Guyana-Suriname basin will continue to occupy headlines with a few planned wells in both Guyana and Suriname. The basin is pinned as one of the most prospective, underexplored basins in the world and will definitely get a facelift from its current assigned volumes if hydrocarbons are established towards the east,” a statement from the company had said.So far, Esso Exploration & Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) – Exxon’s local subsidiary – has now made 15 oil finds in the Stabroek Block over 100 miles offshore Guyana.Last year, the company made five discoveries. These discoveries have pushed the total estimated recoverable barrels of oil equivalent to over six billion. In addition, Exxon is moving ahead with its Liza phase two project, which will contain approximately 30 wells.The Liza Destiny, Guyana’s first Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, arrived in local waters at the end of August. The vessel will play a key role in oil production.It was only on Friday that first oil officially started flowing in the Liza field, which has the capacity to produce 120,000 barrels of oil per day. While the news has been greeted with optimism in some quarters, others have not shared this sunny outlook. There has been criticism that critical policies such as a local content policy is not in place.last_img read more
