Environmental approval recommended for Scarborough export gas pipeline

first_img Unaoil sought a partner for a $733m pipeline project in southern Iraq Woodside Energy has secured recommendation for environmental approval for a section of the 434km long Scarborough export gas pipeline in Western Australian waters.The recommendation for approval for the liquid natural gas (LNG) pipeline came from the state’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). A final decision will be made by Western Australia’s Minister for Environment.The pipeline is part of the Scarborough Gas Field Project, which has been taken up by Woodside Energy (75%) and BHP (25%) in the Carnarvon Basin located in the north west of Western Australia.As per its proposal, Woodside Energy plans to installation a 32.7km long gas trunkline near the existing Pluto LNG Facility on the Burrup Peninsula, 8km north east of Dampier in the Pilbara region.EPA Chair Tom Hatton said: “During our consideration, the EPA looked carefully at environmental impacts particularly around coral communities; water quality; social and cultural values; and marine species within the development envelope.“As a precautionary measure, the EPA has recommended management plans to avoid and minimise the direct and indirect environmental impacts.”The EPA said that as the portion of the Scarborough export gas pipeline within the Western Australian waters is a short-term trunkline construction project, it is likely to have minimal greenhouse gas emissions.The export gas pipeline is intended to connect the Scarborough Gas Field Project with the Pluto LNG Facility. The project involves the development of the Scarborough field, which is part of the offshore Greater Scarborough gas fields.Woodside is due to make a final investment decision (FID) on the Scarborough field development in the first half of this year.Boskalis was given a contract for the Scarborough export gas pipelineIn July 2019, Woodside awarded the contract for the seabed intervention and shore crossing activities for the Scarborough export gas pipeline to Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis). The contract, which is subject to an FID on the Scarborough Gas Field Project, is worth up to €145m if all options are called.Boskalis expects to begin the seabed intervention and shore crossing works in March 2021 with completion targeted for mid-2022. The Scarborough export gas pipeline is intended to transport gas produced from the Scarborough Gas Field Project to the Pluto LNG Facilitylast_img read more

Within the framework of a two-billion-dollar arrangement, Russia is also hired to ensure Vietnamese sailors are adequately trained to be able to operate the vessels.The 3,100-ton submarines are described as almost undetectable when submerged. They boast of cutting-edge stealth technology and can engage targets both on land, surface and underwater.The submarines are armed with Kalibr 3M54 cruise missiles and 533-mm torpedo tubes.The kilo-class subs can reach a speed of 20 knots.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 31, 2013; Image: Shipspotting View post tag: Defence View post tag: sub Back to overview,Home naval-today Vietnam’s First Kilo-Class Sub Bound for Final Destination View post tag: Bound View post tag: first Vietnam’s First Kilo-Class Sub Bound for Final Destination View post tag: Navy View post tag: Vietnam View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Defense View post tag: Kilo Share this articlelast_img read more

A warm, dry, sunny week ahead in Michiana

first_img A warm, dry, sunny week ahead in Michiana Pinterest By 95.3 MNC – October 5, 2020 0 572 Twitter Google+ IndianaLocalMichiganNewsWeather Twitter WhatsApp Facebook Google+ WhatsApp (Jon Zimney/95.3 MNC) The workweek is off to a cool start, but don’t let that get you down this Monday morning! Expect sunny skies, mostly dry weather, and daytime highs in the 70s this week.As you step out the door, temperatures are starting in the upper 30s to low 40s this morning. Make sure to grab your coat. You could see a little frost on your windshield or lawn this morning. By lunchtime, temperatures are still cool in the low 50s. This afternoon we’ll reach a high around 62. It will be a little breezy this afternoon, but there is plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Overnight skies are mostly clear with temperatures falling into the mid 40s.Tuesday and Wednesday are sunny with daytime highs in the 70s. Wednesday will get breezy with wind gusts up to 25 miles per hour in the afternoon. Thursday is slightly cooler with a high in the mid 60s. Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday temperatures will rebound back into the 70s. The weekend looks to be dry and sunny.“There really doesn’t appear to be rain in the near future,” says Crystal Petit, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “A lot of the state is experiencing conditions of drought. Things are abnormally dry to low on drought conditions.”Petit says having temperatures in the mid-to-high 70s this time of year is not something that typically happens.Once we get into those upper 70s, we’ll be looking at temperatures around 10 degrees above normal for what you would expect this time of year,” says Petit.When it gets dry like this, conditions can be prime for a fire if the winds are blowing hard enough and people aren’t taking the proper precautions.“Make sure you’re not burning things on days where it’s windier, where things are more likely to get out of control. Keep an eye on local burn bans near you,” says Petit.The latest numbers from the U.S. Drought Monitor show more than half of Indiana being “abnormally dry.” That means there can be short-term dryness that slows the planting and growth of crops. There can also be some lingering water deficits.Your ABC 57 First Warning Neighborhood Weather Center Forecast:Monday: Warmer temps in the afternoon with sunny skies.

John Mayer Debuts New Guitar & “Johnny B. Goode” In Boston [Audio]

first_imgJohn Mayer is just a few shows deep in his The Search For Everything Tour, stopping at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on Sunday night. From top to bottom, these shows have delivered outstanding versions of Mayer’s career-spanning catalogue. The show begins with Mayer and a full live band, before the instrumentalists leave the stage to Mayer and an acoustic guitar. Bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan then return for the John Mayer Trio portion of the evening, and are eventually joined by the rest of the full band for another set and encore, before leaving JM to a second encore, with the epilogue “You’re Gonna Live In Me Forever.”Last night featured the debut of Mayer’s new guitar, a Paul Reed Smith-made Strat look-alike. You can hear the tone in the video below, courtesy of Matt Frazier:While touring in support of his upcoming The Search For Everything album, Mayer has used the stage to perfect the new songs released earlier this year. “Moving On and Getting Over” and “Love on the Weekend” were both featured in the full-band portions of the evening, while “Emoji of a Wave” received acoustic treatment. Songs from his past records, like “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” and “Gravity” still make their soul-stirring appearances on a regular basis, to the delight of his devoted fanbase.During the John Mayer Trio section, a version of Chuck Berry‘s “Johnny B. Goode” made its tour debut. Mayer has experience in performing this song alongside his bandmates in Dead & Company, so it’s fun and interesting to hear the big rock song played out by the trio.Thanks to Claude83, you can listen to the full show audio below: Edit this setlist | More John Mayer setlists[photo via @johnmayer]last_img read more

Case Study: First Tech Federal Credit Union’s omnichannel strategies

first_imgn this Q&A, Jack Weldon, VP/marketing, and Stephen Owen, chief retail and marketing officer, for $8 billion/440,000-member First Tech Federal Credit Union, Mountain View, Calif., share their views as marketers on how omnichannel delivery brings together all departments to deliver on a 360-degree view of members’ needs and preferences.How does First Tech FCU define omnichannel delivery?We look at omnichannel in a number of ways. Our first priority is to focus on our members’ experience with us, which was core to First Tech’s OC design principles from the very beginning. We want members to be able to interact with us in whichever channel is best suited for them, in that moment, which means we need to have capabilities that make their experiences with us as seamless as possible, whether via call, click or branch visit.Secondly, to do that effectively, it was clear that we needed to approach the underlying technology platforms that support these channels in completely new ways—across member relationship management, sales teams, business development, support and operational services and certainly marketing. This includes capabilities that begin to offer a 360-degree view of our members’ online and offline activities, which allows our teams to create more personalized relationships and deliver more relevant solutions. continue reading » 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Japan could be allowed to postpone Olympics to end of year, minister says

first_imgTokyo’s contract with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) allows it to postpone the Games until the end of the year, Japan’s Olympics minister said on Friday, amid concern the coronavirus outbreak could force the IOC to cancel them.”The contract calls for the Games to be held within 2020. That could be interpreted as allowing a postponement,” Seiko Hashimoto said in response to a lawmaker’s question in parliament.Under the hosting agreement, the right to cancel the Games belongs to the IOC. Thomas Bach, president of the IOC, last week said his organization was “fully committed” to holding the Tokyo Olympics on schedule despite the coronavirus spread. Hashimoto said Japan’s government and Tokyo were still committed to hosting the sporting event, due to begin on July 24.”We are doing all we can to ensure that the Games go ahead as planned,” she told parliament.Any halt to the Games would be costly.The latest budget is 1.35 trillion yen ($12.51 billion), with Japan’s government providing 120 billion yen to build the Olympic Stadium and 30 billion yen toward the cost of the 2020 Paralympics, Hashimoto said.Japan’s Board of Audit put government spending between the bid in 2013 and 2018 at 1.06 trillion yen.Topics :last_img read more
