"Cenovus oil sands production climbs 20% in first quarter

• Combined oil sands production at Foster Creek and Christina Lake averaged 120,444 barrels per day (bbls/d) net in the first quarter, up 20% from a year earlier.

• Foster Creek performed at the upper end of Cenovus’s expected production range, averaging 54,706 bbls/d net in the quarter, a slight decrease from the same period a year earlier.
• Cenovus generated nearly $1.2 billion in operating cash flow, a 4% decrease when compared with the same period in 2013, as rising production and higher commodity prices were offset by significantly lower refining margins.
• Cenovus received regulatory approval for its 180,000 bbls/d wholly-owned Grand Rapids oil sands project and plans to move forward with an initial phase of 8,000 to 10,000 bbls/d."

Mystery of the missing Gods

The eerie quiet of a tumbled ruin: Brihadeeswara temple.
A man-sized stone warrior guards the doorway, half-sunk in sand. Hundreds of bats whirl overhead, shrieking at the intrusion. Exposed beams, textured by time and mould, add to the musty smell in the air. Cobwebs on prayer lamps enhance the sense of abandonment. The altar is stripped bare, like a frame without a picture: It's a temple without a god. The 1,000-year-old guardian of the temple, Shiva Nataraja, is missing from his abode.
The Lord of Cosmic Dance has travelled 9,000 km to the National Gallery of Art in Canberra, Australia. How did he get there? Ask Subhash Kapoor, 65, a New Delhi-born and New York-based antiquity dealer, considered an art connoisseur as well as one of the biggest idol smugglers in the world.

He sold the Nataraja to NGA for Rs.31 crore in 2008.
Kapoor is suspected of stealing over 150 idols worth $100 million from India. The missing god is at the centre of a curious trial that has just started in a district court in Tamil Nadu.

"Art and antiquity theft is one of the most lucrative crimes," says IPS officer Prateep V. Philip, director general, EOW, in Chennai. "It outbids drug trafficking, arms dealing, and money laundering." The odds of recovering stolen treasures are abysmal, one in ten. But in this case, authorities managed to trace the idols stolen from Sripuranthan and the nearby village of Suthamalli to various museums and galleries across the world.

The statue of a Dancing Shiva was bought by the National Gallery of Australia from Subhash Kapoor in 2008 for $5.1 million.
Six of the 28 gods have already been identified in museums and private collections across the world: Canberra, New South Wales, Chicago, Ohio to Singapore. The Australian government has ordered NGA to remove the Nataraja from display.
