first_imgPetrofac to provide operations and maintenance support for Repsol Sinopec’s six additional assets Petrofac to increase support to Repsol Sinopec. (Credit: Petrofac Limited) UK-based firm Petrofac has extended the scope of the contract with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK for the latter’s offshore maintenance operations on oil platforms in the UK North Sea.Following enhancement to the existing contract, the oilfield services provider is preparing to extend its provision of operations and maintenance services to Repsol Sinopec.As per the terms of the enhanced agreement, Petrofac will be responsible for providing operations and maintenance support for Repsol Sinopec’s six additional assets in the UK North Sea.About  200 Repsol Sinopec personnel to be transferred to PetrofacAround 200 employees supporting the Repsol Sinopec’s Claymore, Tartan, Clyde, Montrose, Arbroath and Bleo Holm assets are also planned to be transferred to Petrofac, following a period of transition.Petrofac West engineering and production services managing director Nick Shorten said: “Since our initial appointment in 2016, our scope of support for Repsol Sinopec has grown steadily and the inclusion of this additional asset group demonstrates our client’s continued confidence in our delivery.“We are delighted and very much look forward to continuing our support of Repsol Sinopec’s late life strategy, through safe and effective operations.”Under the existing contract with Repsol Sinopec, Petrofac already supports six assets and provides engineering support services for brownfield modifications and projects in the North Sea.Recently, Petrofac announced plans to lay off nearly 20% of its workforce in response to the adverse conditions affecting the oil and gas industry.Additionally, the company plans to reduce its overhead and project support costs by at least $100m in the current year and by up to $200m in 2021.last_img read more

Ocean City’s Wider Beaches Draw Raves

first_imgJill and Kevin Urban, of Abington, Pa., enjoy a stroll on the expansive beaches in the north end on the last day of the replenishment project. By MADDY VITALEDanny Russo, of Hoboken, looked out over the beach in the north end near Seaspray Road, where Ocean City’s project to pump in fresh sand to replenish the eroded shoreline was wrapping up Thursday. He said he couldn’t believe his eyes.“The beaches are like four times bigger than they were last year,” he said with a smile.Russo, his best friend, Dallas Wilkins, of Newark, and his father, David Russo, spent some time on the beach fishing. They come to Ocean City every summer for a getaway.“We didn’t catch anything, but we’re definitely happy about the beaches,” David Russo noted.The work is the culmination of a major beach replenishment program that began in the spring to rebuild beaches across approximately 2.1 miles of Ocean City’s northernmost and downtown beaches.While the work brought some inconvenience to beachgoers with hulking machinery and beach closures at various locations throughout the summer, vacationers seemed pleased with the results.“They are so much bigger,” said Jill Urban, of Abington, Pa.She and her husband, Kevin, were married in Ocean City 15 years ago on Sept. 17 and were celebrating their anniversary with a vacation.“The storms always take the beaches away. It is hard to say if the sand will stay, but it feels and looks good right now,” Kevin Urban noted.Bulldozers spread out piles of new sand for the replenished beaches.Ocean City Public Information Officer Doug Bergen explained the progress of the work on the north end beaches. On Thursday morning work was at a temporary standstill, but was scheduled was to resume in the afternoon.“Great Lakes Dredge and Dock is repairing a damaged gasket this morning,” Bergen said of the beach replenishment contractor. “Work is expected to resume around noon, and they have about 10 hours and 15,745 cubic yards to go before completing the project at the terminal groin near Seaview Road.”So far, they have pumped 1,589,420 cubic yards of new sand onto more than two miles of beach. The contractor will demobilize as much equipment as possible before the holiday weekend. But no work will take place Friday to Monday, and all beaches will have full access, Bergen said.In addition to pumping sand onto the beaches, the contractor also stockpiled sand, so the city can rebuild areas of dune to create an uninterrupted line across the length of the project area. A dredge was placed off Great Egg Harbor Inlet and a pipeline was run underwater and on the beach.Dallas Wilkins, of Newark, and Danny and David Russo, of Hoboken, enjoy the wider beaches.“The project will bring more than 1.6 million cubic yards of new sand to rebuild beaches across approximately 2.1 miles of Ocean City’s northernmost and downtown beaches,” Bergen pointed out.Surfers and best friends, Dylan Pearl and Will Brown, 25, both of Philadelphia, enjoyed the ocean and the beach Thursday morning.They came down to Brown’s family home in Ocean City to celebrate Pearl’s 26th birthday.While they acknowledged that the project disrupted surfing at certain beaches sometimes, they also saw a lot of positives.“It’s definitely nice to have bigger beaches,” Pearl said.Dylan Pearl, left, and Will Brown, both of Philadelphia enjoy a morning of surfing.last_img read more

Hollywood highlights

first_imgAs Niall Irwin, director of Irwin’s plant bakery, Portadown, NI, incoming president of the Irish Master Bakers Association, received the chain of office from outgoing president Patrick Smyth, it was a significant moment. “He has been inspirational for the trade!” said Irwin.Patrick Smyth, of AB Mauri’s Yeast Products in Finglas, Dublin, has been president for four years that is not one but two terms. The association comprises not only plant, but also craft bakers from all-Ireland, so welcoming a new president is quite an occasion. There were many marked tributes to Smyth and his wife, Angela, who have played a major role in social, business and also fundraising events for the Irish Bakers’ Benevolent Society, which has paid out £46,000 in the past four years.Also in the past four years, on the business side, the conference heard how the Northern Ireland Bakery Council formed an alliance with Northern Ireland Manufacturing. They managed to get industrial rates, which were introduced in 2007/8, capped at 30% of government expectation. They have been active lobbying the NI Food & Drink Association and government. They lobbied hard over EU driver hours, regulations and breaks, so MEPs are now reviewing them. And they are seeking to influence country-of-origin labelling and lobbying against electricity charges, which are 40% higher than the UK. The Council also implemented a Training for Success programme and trainees are now beginning to enjoy management roles.For the Republic, Gerard Cunningham of the Flour Bakers’ and Confectioners’ Association, said the industry was “facing huge challenges”. But he began by paying tribute to Patrick (Pat) Garvey, who died in May, over his lobbying on VAT rates, the setting up of an insurance scheme and his achievements in training. Then, outlining the current challenges, Jim Hyland, for the Irish Bread Bakers’ Association, said that a salt reduction model was in place, the minimum wage was too high, and 2007 flour costs had made a significant impact, going up twice.Discounters had set up in the Republic and were achieving 8.5% of sales. Tesco and Dunnes were still managing to dominate the market, but he emphasised: “The industry is facing major flour price increases again, as well as other commodities, and this represents huge challenges.”The conference saw three speakers give papers. David Wragg of Mars, still a family firm producing goods ranging from chocolate confectionery to petfood worldwide, spoke about Integrated Business Manage-ment, a business programme run by Oliver Wight.Key senior management phrases, such as “We support the responsibility of others”, “We need freedom to shape our future”, “We need profit to remain free”, were all stressed. David Wragg said: “We empowered managers, because the process enables good decisions to be made. Sales need to be forecast and all other departments need to support them,” he said. Integrated Business Management seems to have worked at Mars, where profits were up 7% in recession, beating all targets, he added.Gordon Polson of the Federation of Bakers, with eight plant baker members in the UK, spoke mainly about salt reduction in branded bread. He said that, overall, a 30% reduction had been achieved. The level used to be 0.52 sodium per 800g loaf. Now it was 0.41 although 0.43 had been the previous target.Now the goalpost had moved again and the 2012 target was 0.4 “and we have not agreed to meet it!” said Polson.The reasons he spelt out were: technological stickiness of the dough; taste “you must take the consumer with you”; and commercial “owners have invested millions in a brand and won’t risk upsetting consu-mers overnight”.He said: “More research is needed by the Food Standards Agency and a new route-map is required. We have to stand up and be different. Some products can cope, others can’t, but it is an opportunity for new dialogue on potassium chloride. The challenges are there.”Speaking about regulations, as opposed to mandatory directives, he said: “There are new views and drafts every two weeks!”Speaker David Powell, formerly of David Powell Bakeries and now a consultant to Rich Products, to whom he sold his successful business, inspired delegates with his talk on ’Be daring, be different, be practical!’ a partial quote taken from the biography of photographer Cecil Beaton.Powell spoke about quality long-fermented breads, hand- moulded, baked on the oven sole, and about cakes provide completely different flavours and recipes, then about service “the salesperson may get grief when he turns up, but the actual owner gets a ’thank you for coming’!”New president Niall Irwin, who studied bakery at Thomas Danby in Leeds, told the conference: “I am proud of our industry. It is changing fast, but must give us the returns we deserve. But let’s look after it. Let’s delight our customers. If we do it correctly, we all prosper.”last_img read more

Retail sales weakest since May

first_imgRetail sales grew by just 0.7% last month, the weakest growth since May, as shoppers turned their back on pre-Christmas discounting.A study by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) said that on a like-for-like basis, which only includes stores that have been open for at least a year, sales fell by 1.6% The BRC blamed mild weather for falling sales of winter clothing and footwear, however food sales were improving slightly, up 1.5% on a like-for-like basis between September and November.Stephen Robertson, director general of the BRC, said: “Consumers are not quite in the Christmas mindset yet, although stores are working to generate much-needed sales with high levels of festive discounting. This November’s mild weather contrasted with much lower temperatures last year, hitting sales of winter clothing and footwear particularly hard.”“Christmas is a crucial trading period for the UK retail sector but this year many retailers will be nervous and unsure as to how the season will pan out,” added Helen Dickinson, head of retail at accountants KPMG which co-authored the survey.• Elsewhere, the latest grocery share figures from Kantar Worldpanel, published today for the 12 weeks ending 27 November  2011, show the grocery market growing at 4.2% per year.  This remains below the 6.2% inflation rate as shoppers continue to feel the pressure on their purse strings.Tesco is the only retailer among the big four to see its share slip – from 30.7% a year ago to 30.5% – and its growth rate of 3.8% has also fallen behind that of the market. Morrisons continues its positive run, seeing year-on-year share uplift from 12.0% to 12.1%. Asda has also posted its strongest growth since December 2009 as the integration of the UK Netto stores is completed.Edward Garner, Director at Kantar Worldpanel said: “This may at first seem disappointing for Tesco given the ‘Big Price Drop’ initiative; however, it is not wholly unexpected.  With more products available for less, the amount of cash taken at the tills has understandably dropped.  Despite this, Tesco has successfully attracted more shoppers to its stores through the promotion. This strategy, coined ‘self imposed deflation’ by Tesco, is something we have seen in the past and it’s clear that Tesco is using this method again to help shoppers save their pennies.”last_img read more

Taking Charge with cellphones

first_imgJeffrey Mansfield was aboard the riverboat Juan Felipe last August as it eased down the Arapiuns River, a branch of the Amazon a mile wide. In the distance was the lush green rim of the Brazilian rain forest. Despite the remote locale, Mansfield took out his iPhone and in moments was posting real-time pictures on Facebook.Mansfield, a master’s degree student in architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, was taking advantage of a fact that is little known in North America: Remote corners of the vast Amazon River basin are increasingly covered by 3G networks. (3G is short for the third-generation networks widely used for cellphones, the Internet, video links, and other wireless communications.)“One of the biggest surprises was how accessible the Internet was,” said Mansfield. “I never felt I was in a romanticized wilderness, completely separate from the world.”Brazil itself has one of the highest densities of cellphone use in the world, and by 2014 even its most remote riverine forest regions will have reliable 3G coverage of the kind Mansfield enjoyed on the Arapiuns. A year ago, Vivo, Brazil’s largest wireless provider, distributed 200 Samsung smartphones to residents of the Tapajós-Arapiuns Extractive Reserve, an ecologically sensitive region inhabited by the mixed-race caboclo people.These farmers, fishermen, and artisans of Ameridian descent live under thick jungle cover, managing beehives, and clearing little plots to grow maize, onions, cassava, and tree fruits. (Sustainable farming in these conditions is called agroforestry.) But these Amazon forest residents are also under pressure from large-scale soybean operations that clear swaths of endangered forest.The cellphone’s camera, set on continuous shoot and held in a cut-off soda bottle with rubber bands, can snap high-resolution photos impossible to get from a higher-altitude plane. “You get phenomenal resolution,” Mansfield said. “It’s low-tech, high-impact.”Power in the region is scarce and expensive, often parceled out in 15-minute increments from portable diesel generators. In some locations, there are solar-powered telecenters that use fixed solar panels. But that’s not enough in the power-short Amazon.In August, Mansfield was in Brazil with the Portable Light Project, a nonprofit research, design, and engineering initiative developed by Boston-based Kennedy Violich Architecture Ltd. (Add in the Brazilian partners, and the project is called the Luz Portatil Brasil initiative.) At the heart of the project is a lightweight, flexible solar fabric that comes with a rechargeable battery pack and a USB port. A user can sling a solar fabric bag over the shoulder, go about the day, and return home at night with enough juice to power cellphones, lights, and other USB-powered devices.The solar textile, with its flexible photovoltaics and solid-state lighting, can also be made into traditional-patterned dresses, hats, tarps, and household curtains.During the 10-day sojourn, Mansfield and the others in his group conferred with Coopa Roca, a women’s sewing cooperative in Rio de Janeiro that reworked the solar fabric. The group also set up a base of operations in Santarem, a former rubber plantation boomtown blanketed by a haze from burning trash. Mansfield and the rest navigated hundreds of miles of the Tapajos and Arapiuns rivers to conduct solar-fabric workshops in 10 riverine villages. Quite happily, the visitors slept in hammocks, watched forest parrots at play, and ate a lot of fish, cassava, and native corn.Mansfield launched Taking Charge, a Kickstarter-funded project that will donate cellphones — loaded with helpful apps, along with a user guide printed on waterproof paper — to the region.Mansfield, a first-time visitor, was awakened to both the charms of the remote Amazon and the ecological threats to it — and to what sensitive stewards of the lands its jungle residents are. He said cheap solar power and widening 3G networks provide a “double confluence” of factors that could help to protect rain forest ecology, improve the lives of residents, and empower them politically. “So many times, outsiders speak for people there,” said Mansfield. “They had to trust foreigners to speak for them, and it wasn’t always accurate. The portable light kit and cellphone allows them a voice.”Mansfield, who is hearing-impaired, felt a kinship with the Amazon residents, since they can rely on others to talk for them. (Interpreter Jolanta Galloway, a freelancer who often works for Harvard, was present during Mansfield’s interview.)The Amazon trip inspired Mansfield to suggest a “user guide” that enables residents to employ smartphones as digital multi-tools. (“The smartphone in my generation,” said Mansfield, “is like the Swiss Army knife.”) Forest residents could use technology to improve farming, health, banking, trade, and health practices. They have the cellphones — but they lack a tool kit and training for life-changing applications. He called that “the missing link.”Back at Harvard this fall, Mansfield launched Taking Charge, a Kickstarter-funded project that will donate cellphones — loaded with helpful apps, along with a user guide printed on waterproof paper — to the region. Available in PDF form too, the guide would contain content from Amazon residents, including tips on beekeeping, husbandry, irrigation, and trade, along with foldout maps on the location of fuel stops, solar stations, and other infrastructure.Accurate maps are at the heart of the Taking Charge tool kit. On a balcony at Gund Hall, Mansfield unfurled a kite that can be used to loft a cellphone 500 feet or more into the air. The phone’s camera, set on continuous shoot and held in a cut-off soda bottle with rubber bands, can snap high-resolution photos impossible to get from a higher-altitude plane. “You get phenomenal resolution,” he said. “It’s low-tech, high-impact.” (Google just recently started to use kites and hot air balloons as mapping platforms.)At his Gund Hall workstation, where Mansfield also writes a Taking Charge blog, he showed a prototype of the users’ guide. It will contain kite-mapping instructions, a biodiversity guide, and profiles of regional entrepreneurs, who are experts in beekeeping, fishing, organic farming, weaving, and food processing.This winter, during a second Portable Light Project trip to the Amazon, Mansfield will gather more local content and conduct workshops on kite mapping and mobile-phone applications. He reached his Kickstarter goal, and will distribute 15 copies of the user guide — more if he has the funding. The target is for at least one copy in each of 10 villages, which may have as few as 20 families and as many as 100.A scheme like this can be scaled up, said Mansfield. He sees the 2,500-square-mile Tapajós-Arapiuns region as a pilot locale for the whole Amazon, which is dotted with villages whose residents yearn to connect with one another.Mansfield sees a future in which cellphones help Amazon residents scour the Internet for new farming methods of sustainable agroforestry, advice on do-it-yourself engineering projects (like tractor repair), and tips from regional entrepreneurs. They should be able to document their livelihoods, their lands, and any threats to either. They will be able to gather weather information — important in an ecosystem where sealike rivers can rise by 60 feet. And Amazon forest residents may be able to study distant markets, jumping past middlemen to get the best prices for their goods. Smartphones can also be a way for people to tell their stories, to one another and to the world.“That’s our goal,” said Mansfield of the multifaceted smartphones, “to make them part of every day life.”last_img read more

Hindu group offers cow urine in a bid to ward off coronavirus

first_imgA Hindu group hosted a cow urine drinking party on Saturday as they believe it wards off the coronavirus, as many Hindus consider the cow sacred and some drink cow urine believing it has medicinal properties.Experts have repeatedly asserted that cow urine does not cure illnesses like cancer and there is no evidence that it can prevent coronavirus.The “party,” hosted by a group called the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) at its headquarters in the country’s capital, was attended by 200 people, and the organizers hoped to host similar events elsewhere in India. “We have been drinking cow urine for 21 years, we also take bath in cow dung. We have never felt the need to consume English medicine,” said Om Prakash, a person who attended the party.Chakrapani Maharaj, the chief of the All India Hindu Union, posed for photographs as he placed a spoon filled with cow urine near the face of a caricature of the coronavirus.Leaders from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party have advocated the use of cow urine as medicine and a cure for cancer.A leader from India’s north eastern state of Assam told state lawmakers earlier this month during an assembly session that cow urine and cow dung can be used to treat the coronavirus.The pathogen, which has infected more than 138,000 people worldwide and left over 5,000 dead, has no known scientific cure and governments across the world are struggling to control the spread of the pandemic.

Pompeo uses Tokyo visit to slam China, seek Asian allies’ support

first_imgUS Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Japan on Tuesday to rally support from Washington’s closest allies in Asia, calling for deeper collaboration with Japan, India and Australia as a bulwark against China’s growing regional influence.The East Asia visit, Pompeo’s first in more than a year, coincides with worsening tensions with China. Yet the call for a united front against Beijing is a sensitive subject for Washington’s allies, which are reliant on China for trade.In comments before the start of a meeting of the Quad grouping of the four nations’ foreign ministers, Pompeo spoke in typically unsparing terms against Beijing’s ruling Chinese Communist Party. That was in contrast to his three counterparts, all of whom avoided calling out China directly. “As partners in this Quad, it is more critical now than ever that we collaborate to protect our people and partners from the CCP’s exploitation, corruption and coercion,” Pompeo said, referring to the ruling party.”We see it in the South and East China Seas, the Mekong, the Himalayas, the Taiwan Strait.”China has denounced the Quad as an attempt to contain its development.The four nations in the grouping stated their support for a free and open Indo-Pacific. In an interview with Japan’s Nikkei newspaper, Pompeo spoke of formalizing and potentially broadening the Quad grouping. “Once we’ve institutionalized what we’re doing – the four of us together – we can begin to build out a true security framework,” Pompeo told the Nikkei, suggesting other countries could be added to that “fabric” at “the appropriate time.”Pompeo told the Japanese public broadcaster NHK it was important that the “shared picture” of the challenge was shared with Southeast Asian countries.Analysts say such a formalized grouping referred to by Pompeo may never take shape, given the need for countries in the region to balance their relationships with China. But they say such remarks serve as a warning to China and play to its fears that the Quad might one day take shape as NATO did in Europe to contain the Soviet Union.Pompeo’s visit was supposed to include trips to Mongolia and South Korea but was cut back to one day after President Donald Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19.A State Department statement said Pompeo spoke on Tuesday to Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga and discussed working together to strengthen security in Asia, “as well as the of rescheduling the Secretary’s visit to Ulaanbaatar in the near future.”In his earlier remarks, Pompeo reiterated the Trump administration’s criticism of China’s handling of COVID-19 after it first broke out in the Chinese city of Wuhan.”When we met, now, last year, the landscape was very different. We couldn’t have imagined a pandemic that came from Wuhan. That crisis was made infinitely worse by the Chinese Communist Party’s cover-up,” he said.The United States and China, the world’s top two economies, are at loggerheads over a wide range of issues from Beijing’s handling of the coronavirus to its imposition of a new security law in Hong Kong and ambitions in the South China Sea.Most Asian allies have been pleased with Washington’s toughness toward their regional rival China but have not so eagerly welcomed the highly charged recent rhetoric from Trump and Pompeo and remain wary of going too far in antagonising China.Topics :last_img read more
