Photo: courtesy of outgunned21/Freeimages.com. ConocoPhillips Australia has awarded the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for a 260km long gas export pipeline under the Barossa Offshore Project in Australia to Allseas Group.Under the contract, the Swiss offshore contractor’s subsidiary – Allseas Marine Contractors Australia will be responsible for the procurement, transportation, and installation of the pipeline, project management, engineering and associated services.The gas export pipeline will connect the Barossa gas and light condensate field into the existing Bayu Undan to Darwin Pipeline, located 100km north-west of Darwin in the Northern Territory.Currently, the Barossa Offshore Project is in the front-end engineering design (FEED) stage with a final investment decision targeted to be made in late 2019.ConocoPhillips Australia west president Chris Wilson said: “Award of this EPCI contract will enable specific project management and engineering deliverables to be progressed prior to a final investment decision in order to meet the project schedule.“We continue to focus on strong cost discipline with all our selected contractors, developing the certainty of cost, schedule and execution planning required to compete in our global portfolio and support a final investment decision.”Located nearly 300km north of Darwin, the Barossa project is planned to be made as a new source of gas to the existing Darwin LNG (DLNG) facility, once the existing offshore gas supply from the Bayu-Undan field in the Timor Sea dries up.Development plans for the Barossa field include installation of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, subsea production system and gas export pipeline, which will all be located in Australian waters.In July 2018, Modec was given the FEED contract for the FPSO. In May 2019, Technip Oceania (TFMC) bagged the contract to supply subsea production system for the Barossa Offshore Project.Stakeholders in the Barossa Offshore ProjectConocoPhillips Australia Barossa is the operator of the Barossa Offshore Project with a stake of 37.5%. Its partners in the offshore gas and condensate project are SK E&S Australia (37.5%) and Santos Offshore (25%).
NZ Herald 31 March 2012About a third of Pacific Island high school students binge-drink and many say they started after joining a sports team or club. A study published in the NZ Medical Journal yesterday looking at binge drinking and alcohol-related behaviours among Pacific youth surveyed 974 Pacific students aged 13 to 17 from around the country. A total of 31.6 per cent of students were identified as binge drinkers, having answered questions about their drinking habits. The study found that those teens who participated in sports teams or were connected to a sports club were more at risk of binge-drinking. And it has since surfaced that a number of parents in South Auckland are refusing to sign their children up to local sports clubs as they don’t want them caught up in a drinking culture.In the study, 47 per cent of students said they consumed alcohol “to get drunk” and 45 per cent said they drank “to relax”. About 36 per cent said they drank because of boredom while 23 per cent said they did so “because my friends do”.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10795691See also: The UK takes action on alcoholThe Lancet 31 March 2012Bold policy moves to promote public health have not defined the current UK Coalition Government. Last week, however, saw signs of a new approach to alcohol that could finally make health professionals breathe a sigh of relief. The government’s latest alcohol strategy states that a minimum unit price for alcohol will soon be introduced in England and Wales (it is already poised for introduction in Scotland). £0·40 per unit has been mooted as the price but the government will consult on the level in the coming months with “a view to introducing legislation as soon as possible”. Additionally, the government will consult on a ban on multibuy promotions in shops, clamp down on alcohol marketing deemed unacceptable by regulators, and work with regulators to ensure alcohol advertising is not shown during television programmes with high appeal to people younger than 18 years of age.http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736%2812%2960491-7/fulltext?elsca1=ETOC-LANCET&elsca2=email&elsca3=Public%20Health
For 19 shots and 65 minutes, the seventh-most effective scoring team in the country was shut out.That’s when Leonie Geyer accepted a Laura Hahnefeldt pass off a corner and rifled it into the bottom left of the cage to give Syracuse a 1-0 lead.“That was a new corner that we practiced this week,” Geyer said. “Laura Hahnefeldt stopped the ball and she was supposed to pass it to me to the right to open up the space, and I shot the ball on goal and picked the right corner. Thank God we scored that.”It was an exasperating day all around for the SU offense, which outshot Ohio State 14-0 in the second half on Sunday, but almost never scored. Geyer’s tally with 4:36 remaining saved the No. 6 Orange (6-0) as it edged the Buckeyes (2-4) late.The game-winner was the second straight for Geyer, who also knocked in the decider in Friday’s 2-1 victory over No. 7 Massachusetts (6-1). The Orange has now won 38-straight home games dating back to 2009 — and a role change for Geyer has everything to do with it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think Leo is the type of person that speaks softly and carries a big stick,” said SU head coach Ange Bradley. “We know she’s not going to be the vocal leader that we would like to have. She’s giving to us in a lot of other ways than just her voice.”The second game-winner was the fifth goal of the season for Geyer, which ties her for second on the team behind Lauren Brooks. Geyer, who came into the weekend tied for the NCAA lead in assist per game, said that although her position is more primed to help assist on goals, she is making more of an effort to put the ball in the net this season.“It’s definitely a new role,” Geyer said. “It’s a part of my game that I’ve been working on for quite a while. I love to pass, sometimes a bit too much. I really have to step it up and score and take some more shots.”After Geyer’s goal, the Orange continued to dominate possession — an approach goaltender Jess Jecko described as a staple of the Orange’s game.“We don’t want anyone in the circle,” Jecko said. “We try to move them outside the circle. We want to get the ball first. We don’t even want them to touch it inside the 25. So we body up on them and try to beat them to the ball.”The defense helped set up the offense all afternoon. But it took until SU’s 20th and final shot attempt for the Orange to finally be able to exhale.“It’s frustrating for everyone,” Bradley said. “That’s where you got to go back to film, and you got to go back to repetition. It’s going to be a real big focus for us in the week ahead.”The midfielder now has two goals in the past two contests, and though she was admittedly excited, she refused to take credit for the wins.“It feels really great,” Geyer said. “But it was a great team effort. We played well together on Friday, and we stepped up today in the second half. I’m glad we got two wins.” Comments Published on September 16, 2013 at 4:13 am Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+
The trial date has been set for the Essequibo woman Bibi Safora Salim, who is charged for using Facebook to issue threatening and derogatory statements against President David Granger.The date was set by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan when Salim, who was charged for attempting to exciteBibi Safora SalimPresident David Grangerhostility on the grounds of race contrary to Section 2 (1) (C) of the Racial Hostility Act, Chapter 23:01 of the Criminal Offences Act, appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. The trial has been set for June 15, 2016.In April 2016, Salim pleaded not guilty to the charge and was placed on $200,000 bail.The 52-year-old mother of three, who hails from Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo, was taken into Police custody for questioning following her Facebook post about shooting the President.She was represented by Attorney Euclin Gomes, who told the Court that his client was “technologically challenged”.This claim was, however, challenged by Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers who strongly objected to bail and told the Court that Salim admitted in a statement to the Police to being the owner of the laptop from which she used a password to access the said account.He also objected to bail on the grounds of the serious nature of the offence, threats posed, and the racial remarks that were used on social media against the President.Salim reportedly sent two photos via whatsapp messenger to her son, which shared similar sentiments.According to Prosecutor Jeffers, the case files are completed and some 14 witnesses are slated to testify in the trial, which should have commenced since May 11.
Wayne Rooney admitted he was excited by the challenge of playing for Everton again after rejoining his boyhood club for an undisclosed fee.The 31-year-old signed a two-year deal with the club he left in 2004 on Sunday after a success-laden spell at Manchester United where he won five Premier League titles and a Champions League. But for Rooney, Everton was always his first love and remained close to his heart. After being presented with his new Toffees shirt from manager Ronald Koeman, the striker told a news conference on Monday: “It feels great (to be back).“I was excited this morning to go in and meet the lads on the training pitch and get going.“It’s an exciting time for myself and for Everton Football Club, we’re moving forward. We’re signing new players. We’re targeting a good season and we’re all hoping this year will be a good year for us. You want to do better than you did the previous year.“You want to keep pressing, as players, as fans so that’s something we want to do.“I feel the club are moving in the right direction. Obviously the manager will have ideas of the players he wants to bring in.”Rooney burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old with Everton and moved to United in a £27million deal two years later. He began to fall down the pecking order at United last season and made just 15 Premier League starts in 2016-17.Rooney admitted this was the correct move at this point in his career, saying: “I was at the stage in my career to take the next step. I spoke with Ronald and it’s where I need to be.”He was linked with moves to China and the United States but, when it became apparent he would be leaving United, the chance to rejoin Everton always seemed the most appealing.Looking ahead to Everton’s Premier League clash with United at Old Trafford on September 17, Rooney added: “Obviously I had a good time at Manchester United, but football moves on, I’ve come back to Everton.”And Rooney says winning a trophy with his boyhood club would be “incredible”, adding: “I think that’s why you play football to try to win trophies and that’s what we want to do.“We want to be successful and we know the right man to lead us to it.“It’ll be incredible (to win silverware with Everton). I was at the FA Cup final in 1995 when we won that and to win a trophy with Everton would be a special moment.” Wayne Rooney, with Ronald Koeman, is back at Everton after 13 years away 1

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… klint finley Tags:#cloud#saas Related Posts I can’t stop thinking about two of our stories from last week: the interview with J Chris Anderson of CouchOne and this article on how open source software has become “invisible” due to the cloud. We’re obviously very excited here at ReadWriteWeb about the opportunities presented by cloud computing. But we’re also worried about how cloud computing is reducing users’ control over their data.So I was pleasantly surprised to discover another project trying to solve some of the hard problems with cloud computing. Unhosted is a new project attempting to break the monopoly that SaaS providers have over users’ data by seperating applications from data. We talked to Michiel de Jong, the project’s founder, about how it works.“Last week, I was still a guy with a hobby, having a beer at the beach in Bali,” he says. Then the project hit Hacker News and suddenly there are contributors from all over the world.de Jong takes Richard Stallman’s critiques of cloud computing seriously. But, he says, “People want to use websites instead of desktop apps. Why do they want that? I don’t think it’s up to us developers to tell users what to want. We should try to understand what they want, and give it to them.”de Jong acknowledges the many advantages to running applications in the cloud: you can access your applications and data from any computer without installing software or transferring files. You can access your files from multiple devices without syncing. And web applications have better cross-platform support.So how can you give users web applications while keeping them in control of their data?The basic idea is this: an Unhosted app lives on a web server and contains only source code. That source code is executed on a user’s computer and encrypts and stores data on another server. That data never passes through the app server. Therefore, the app provider doesn’t have a monopoly on your data. And since that data is encrypted, it can’t be exploited by the data host either (or at least, it probably can’t).The data can be hosted anywhere. “It could be in your house, it could be at your ISP or it could be at your university or workplace,” says de Jong.“We had some hurdles to implement this, one being that the app cannot remember where your data lives, because the app only consists of source code,” he says. “Also your computer can’t remember it for you, because presumably you’re logging on to a computer you never used before.”The Unhosted team solved the problem by putting the data location into usernames. Unhosted usernames look a lot like e-mail addresses, for example: [email protected] Willy is the username, server.org is location where the data is stored.This approach gives developers an interesting benefit: hosting an application is much cheaper because processing and storage is done elsewhere. The application developer just serves up the source code as flat files.At least one problem remains: backing up the data. de Jong is impressed with CouchDB’s replication features and says that once Unhosted is in a working form, the Unhosted team will look into how they can work with CouchDB. He says there have already been discussions on the Unhosted mailing list about CouchDB integration.“I think both CouchDB and Unhosted are part of what is quickly becoming a pretty important movement for ‘freedom through decentralization’ on the web,” says de Jong. “Other important projects that I would say are part of our ‘movement’ are Diaspora*, identi.ca, Tahoe-LAFS, and PageKite.”We could not agree more. The capability to have an “unhosted” service is immensely appealing and fits with our view of a loosely coupled, distributed Web. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting

But despite scoring four times in nine appearances in all competitions, the 20-year-old is yet to start a Championship game, with Bielsa sticking by Patrick Bamford.”For me it is very important that Eddie has a good spell at Leeds,” Bielsa said.”If Nketiah doesn’t do well here in Leeds, the responsibility is going to be mine. That will be fair because Nketiah is a player full of results and as coach, I have to know how to manage all this skill to improve the team.”The person who most wants Nketiah to have success at Leeds is me, but also I value Bamford, I value him a lot.”
