Petronas Partners Pen ShiptoShip LNG Transfer Deal

first_imgzoom  Petronas LNG (PLL), a subsidiary of Petronas LNG Sdn. Bhd (PLSB), signed a two-year service agreement with Argo Engineering Sdn Bhd and Eastport Marine Sdn Bhd to provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) ship-to-ship transfer services in Labuan, Malaysia.The ship-to-ship transfer is the transfer of LNG between two vessels positioned alongside each other.“This ship-to-ship transfer service agreement is Petronas’ first collaboration in providing flexible delivery solutions that goes beyond the conventional selling and delivering of LNG,” PLL’s Chairman, Ahmad Adly Alias said.“LNG ship-to-ship transfer services is an emerging trend to cater to the needs of small scale LNG requirements,” he added.As disclosed, combining Argo and Eastport’s shipping expertise with Petronas’ LNG portfolio, the partnership will enable PLL to respond to new market requirements in the changing LNG industry landscape which includes LNG shipping solutions.Argo has vast experience in LNG shipping operations supported by a network of technical personnel in the LNG shipping industry, while Eastport has expertise in handling bunkering and ship-to-ship operations, in addition to possessing the sole license to provide LNG bunkering and ship-to-ship services at Brunei Bay, Labuan.Separately, PLL has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Bintulu Port Sdn Bhd (BPSB), a subsidiary of Bintulu Port Holdings Berhad (BPHB), for the provision of marine services to support PLL’s Gassing Up and Cooling Down (GUCD) services at the Bintulu Port for a period of three years.The GUCD is a specialized service to bring the storage tanks on LNG carriers, after dry-docking, to natural environment and later cool it down to cryogenic temperature (minus 160 degrees Celsius) before loading its next cargo.The services at the Bintulu Port will commence in 2018, making Bintulu as one of the few terminals in the world to offer this facility. The LNG for gassing up services will be supplied from the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu.As explained by Adly, this is the first GUCD services in Malaysia at the Bintulu Port.“This collaboration is expected to enhance Petronas’ portfolio of services in the integrated (LNG) value chain,” he added.For the nine-month period ended 30 September 2017, Petronas Group recorded a 15 percent increase in revenue at RM 161.8 billion (USD 39.3 billion), mainly due to the impact of higher average realized prices and the impact of foreign exchange rate.Cumulative profit after tax was RM 27.3 billion compared to RM 12.5 billion in the same period last year, primarily due to lower net impairment on assets and well costs.last_img read more

Global Affairs concerned by reports Calgary imam sentenced to prison in Turkey

first_imgCALGARY – Global Affairs Canada says it is concerned by reports in Turkey that a Calgary imam has been sentenced to prison there.A report on the website of news outlet Haberturk says Canadian Davud Hanci has been handed a 15-year sentence.Hanci, who has dual citizenship, was detained in Turkey two years ago on allegations he was connected with an attempted coup.His family has said he is a peaceful man who had nothing to do with the violence in 2016.Relatives have said Hanci was visiting the city of Trabzon, on the coast of the Black Sea, to visit his sick father at the time.Global Affairs spokesman John Babcock says officials are in contact with him, and an email from the department says a consular official was present as an observer at the most recent hearing.Babcock says consular officials have also been in contact with local authorities to gather information and are assisting Hanci’s family. He says no other information can be released for privacy reasons.Following the failed coup on July 15, 2016, the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan instituted a state of emergency that ended this month. During that time, Turkey has arrested more than 75,000 people for alleged links to Fethullah Gulen, a U.S.-based cleric whom Ankara blames for the attempted government overthrow.last_img read more

SecretaryGeneral urges countries to step up legal protection for UN staff

The Optional Protocol to the 1994 Convention on the Safety of UN and Associated Personnel entered into force last year, but 169 countries “are still not part of this regime,” Mr. Ban said in a message marking the International Day of Solidarity with Detained and Missing Staff Members.“I call on all States that have not done so to ratify or accede to the convention and its protocol without delay.”Stephen Kisambira, the President of the UN Staff Union, echoed the Secretary-General’s call to Member States, adding that countries should not only “ratify those agreements, but take determined steps to implement them.”He congratulated the Singaporean Parliament for having recently passed the UN Personnel Act, which criminalizes attacks against UN staff, premises and vehicles.Last year at least 28 UN civilian staff were detained or arrested worldwide in cases considered to be job-related, while another 12 UN police and civilians were abducted – including one civilian staff member who was held captive in Darfur for nearly three months.Mr. Ban paid tribute to the work of UN and associated personnel, as well as colleagues in the press and the non-governmental community, for their “vital, life-saving missions for people in crisis and need throughout the world.”The International Day commemorates the anniversary of the abduction of Alec Collett, who was working for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) when he was taken in Lebanon in 1985. His body was finally found in 2009. 25 March 2011The vast majority of United Nations Member States are yet to ratify or accede to a protocol extending legal protection for UN staff beyond those serving in peacekeeping missions to all operations delivering humanitarian, political or development assistance, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. read more

DR of Congo UN will provide immediate logistical support for electoral process

Given the vast size of the country and the lack of infrastructure in large areas, the country’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) asked the UN Mission in DRC (MONUC) to assist with transporting electoral materials to voter registration centres and future polling sites throughout the country, Mr. Annan said in a letter to the President of the Security Council for August, Japanese Permanent Representative Ambassador Kenzo Oshima. MONUC and the IEC, supervising the $450 million electoral process, “are stretched to their limit as they face the multiple demands of opening and servicing thousands of isolated voter registration sites,” he said. “I understand that the members of the Security Council have reached an agreement in principle to approve the recommendations contained in my special report of 26 May 2005 on elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to furnish MONUC with the resources required,” he said. In view of the urgency of the requirement and to ensure the successful completion of ongoing registration activities by the 27 November deadline for holding the constitutional referendum, he intended to begin immediately to provide the logistical support to the electoral process, pending the consideration and official approval by the Council of his recommendations, he said. The registration of eligible voters in Kinshasa closed on 31 July with over 2.9 million identified, marking the first step of the nationwide registration programme, which will be progressively extended to all of the DRC provinces in the coming weeks, he said. MONUC has been making its vehicles, airplanes and helicopters available to the IEC as it distributes materials to some 9,000 registration centres. On the military front, the UN mission said last week that it would help to train nine Congolese Armed Forces (FARDC) brigades for deployment in the troubled eastern provinces before the scheduled elections next March and April. read more

Shatter tells garda superintendents hes sorry they felt excluded from Croke Park

first_imgMINISTER FOR JUSTICE Alan Shatter has told garda superintendents that he is sorry they “felt excluded” from negotiations on the proposals for the extension of the Croke Park Agreement.Shatter was speaking at their association’s annual conference in Naas, Co Kildare. He said it had been brought to his attention that there were two issues of importance to members that required clarification and that he would rise the matter with Minister Howlin.“I understand that while during this process, an official in my department kept in contact so that you were kept informed as to how matters were progressing I am of course conscious that there was substantially less engagement with bodies representing those in the public service whose gross income exceeds €65,000 including your association,” he said.Shatter told members of the association he has asked his officials to look at the flaws and defects identified in the process, including those involving An Garda Síochana.He said that the government was “disappointed” at the outcome of the ballot on Croke Park but that the payroll savings still needed to be made.Delay in recruitmentThe minister also said that if new members of the force are to be recruited, there must be funds to pay them. “In this context, unfortunately, the situation I now face is that there is currently no new agreement on public pay issues but there is still a projected €300 million budgetary shortfall.Shatter said this meant that his bringing a proposal for new recruits to cabinet will “obviously have to be delayed”.While the minster told garda superintendents that he understood the reaction of members to proposals for a reduction in pay and pensions, he asked “everyone to reflect on the realities”.“We cannot go on spending more than we take in and we cannot expect others to simply give us funds to indefinitely facilitate our doing so,” he added.Related: ‘I have given as much as I can’ – garda speaks out against pay cuts>More: Garda Commissioner says ‘more needs to be done with fewer resources’>Read: Gardaí feel like ‘sitting ducks’ after decision to withdraw Uzi submachine guns>last_img read more

Panasonics Multilingual Megaphone Translates as You Speak

first_imgNovember 18, 2016 Enroll Now for Free As Japanese tourism grows, businesses struggle to bridge the language divide between international visitors and locals. Panasonic, however, may have a solution: a multilingual loudspeaker.The Megahonyaku — an amalgamation of “megaphone” (megahon) and “translation” (hon’yaku) — automatically translates Japanese into English, Chinese and Korean.  Simply speak into the microphone; the machine listens and analyzes sentence structure, and transcribes the words. Using the integrated touch screen, pressing the respective dialect button outputs your sentence in one of the three available languages.Aimed at corporate customers including train stations and airports, the amplifier could prove very useful in crowded locations and tourist destinations where information is dispensed to groups who may all speak different languages.The Megahonyaku, The Japan Times reports, comes pre-installed with 300 common sentences in Japanese, including “The train has been delayed” and “Watch your step.” Additional phrases will be available via Web-based updates.Making your voice heard in a congested, noisy terminal isn’t always an easy task — even with a portable PA system. But the Megahonyaku’s speech recognition system is unaffected by background noise, the Times said, and is “almost certain” to recognize preset sentences if not spoken verbatim.Panasonic did not immediately respond to PCMag’s request for comment.The megaphone is expected for launch Dec. 20, on sale for less than ¥20,000 ($183) per month on a three-year contract, which includes future updates and maintenance.Panasonic is also developing a number of other audio solutions, with an eye on the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, which promises throngs of international travelers spilling into the capital city.

5 questions Mark Zuckerberg should answer at Facebooks congressional hearings

first_imgMark Zuckerberg is going to testify, but the question remains as to whether or not he’ll really say anything of substance.The CEO is in Washington D.C. this week to assure lawmakers and the concerned citizens of Facebook Nation that he knows he needs to do better, that he is going to make it all OK, and that — above all — he is listening. That being said, his prepared testimony is a bunch of recycled pablum masquerading as contrition and doesn’t suggest a good start. He can, and should, do better. Thankfully, we’re here to extend a helping hand. In his submitted remarks, which are set to be delivered to the Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday (not to be confused with his Tuesday testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation), Zuckerberg mainly recaps what we already know about the unfolding national nightmare that is Facebook’s history of privacy abuses and missteps, and helpfully puts a little PR spit-shine on Facebook’s burgeoning fatberg of a business model clogging the sewers of our offal-soaked democracy. But his testimony need not be a self-serving show of self-flagellation. Instead, if he is truly interested in having a positive impact on the world, he could start by answering the hard questions. Hard questions like these:1) What is this “community” you keep talking about?A community of one.Image: Alex Wong/GettyHey Mark, you repeatedly refer to the transnational surveillance architecture you’ve built as a “community” — you mentioned it three times in your prepared remarks alone — but simply repeating something over and over again won’t make it true.  Clearly, deep in thought.Image: Alex Wong/GettyBy Jack Morse2018-04-10 00:14:34 UTC Can people really be considered a single community if their only shared attribute is being exploited by the same corporate behemoth? We think not. It might serve you well to tease out your thinking on this one. 2) Were you asleep at the wheel, or did you just not care?Going to his happy place.Image: Alex Wong/GettyThanks mainly to the work of journalists and elected officials, we know that all has not been right in Facebookville for some time now. However, the proverbial shit only really started to hit the fan after journalists blew up your spot about a raft of issues ranging from so-called fake news, to Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, to Cambridge Analytica.Why are we only just finding out about this well after the fact? If your “top priority has always been [your] social mission of connecting people, building community and bringing the world closer together,” and “[advertisers] and developers will never take priority over that,” why did it take your very public outing to start talking reforms that might impact your bottom line?If you want us to buy into your apology tour, you really need to answer this question. 3) Why do you still have a job?But seriously.Image: Alex Wong/GettyLook, we get it, you are the majority shareholder and have a seat on the board. No one is going to fire you. But that doesn’t answer why you should still be left in charge. When you’ve messed up time and time again, at some point saying sorry isn’t enough. You need to convince the world that you are the right person for this job, and that you can right this incredibly powerful and complex ship — even after steering it headfirst into an iceberg, time and time again. 4) Can you please fuck right off?Like, immediately?Image: Alex Wong/GettyOK so asking this probably isn’t the best use of lawmakers’ time, but man it would feel good. 5) So what’s next?Checking the exits.Image: Win McNamee/GettyThings at Facebook clearly can’t continue on as they have. Something fundamental has to change. By announcing that 3rd-party apps’ access to users’ data would be restricted if they haven’t first been vetted by Facebook, you have clearly begun slowly walking back the free-for-all philosophy of data sharing that ruled Facebook for years. But what will come in its place? How do you change the DNA of a thing without burning it to the ground first? How can you fix a problem when that problem is your company’s very business model?If history is to be our guide, we shouldn’t expect much in the way of reform. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t ask for it, however, and it definitely doesn’t mean that we don’t deserve answers.  [embedded content]center_img As far as I can tell, nobody who interviewed Zuckerberg asked him “What the heck do you mean: ‘Facebook community’? This makes no sense.” https://t.co/0ze35TvWsc— zeynep tufekci (@zeynep) April 8, 2018last_img read more

Relief and qualified praise mark the end of road chaos

first_imgA year after Tomb of the Kings Road boost for Paphos but further improvements neededBy Bejay BrowneRoadworks are the one thing businesses fear most. Months and months of dust, disruption, blocked access and the inevitable delays put off customers and pose a huge threat to livelihoods.Paphos has had more than its fair share of disruptive roadworks in recent years, all of them made worse by long delays, and nowhere more so than the Tomb of the Kings Road area of the town.The long-term benefits of the improvements can be hard to imagine when an owner of a restaurant sees their business plummet. Some businesses along this busy road in one of the town’s main tourist areas with its large number of hotels, tourist accommodation, restaurants and bars were forced to close.Extended delays to the roadworks passed numerous deadlines. Work should have been completed in April 2015, but contractors were granted an extension to January 2016. This was then extended until April 2016, then June and July.But for the businesses that did survive the general opinion is that since work was finally finished last summer, the new-look road has benefited the area.Michael Michael, who owns and operates two business, opposed the creation of the four-lane road, but said that now completed, it has tidied up the area though a number of important, albeit ‘small’ improvements still need to be made to the busy thoroughfare.“It needs to be made viable and safe for people. It’s a busy tourist area and I have witnessed at least six accidents myself,” he said.One of these involved a British tourist being knocked down as she attempted to cross the road, she remains in a coma, he said.The new dual carriageway will eventually form part of a ring road around the town, and includes a central reservation, walkways, cycle paths and a series of roundabouts.But Michael believes that plans for the road were decades old and outdated, as they were drawn up in 1997 and this has led to a number of problems for those using it.Towards the end of the road nearest to the popular shopping mall, traffic lights and crossings have been placed too close together and do not allow vehicles enough time to stop safely.“This is a busy road and cars travel more quickly now. There needs to be a warning that these things are ahead, so it’s not always the fault of the driver,” he added.Michael said that when a project is finally completed it’s viewed in a different way and the new look road makes an aesthetic difference, as it was previously a mess and ‘chaos’. However, he said that pavements should be wider, trees should be planted to provide shade and that there is a cycle lane that literally stops.“What are cyclists expected to do, carry their bicycles on their shoulder?”The lack of disabled parking spaces is another issue and instead of the 200 or so on-site parking for businesses as promised, there are only around 45. This means that in some places, delivery trucks have to park in the middle of the road.Christina Demitriou, owner of popular Gustoso restaurant, owns one of the businesses that survived but was badly affected by the roadworks.Pedestrian crossing on the Tomb of the Kings roadThe venue, which opened six and a half years ago, serves international cuisine has an outdoor area which looks onto the road and is usually busy, but what with the dust, trucks and other machinery, many people, understandably, didn’t want to use this space.The works directly outside the restaurant lasted over six months.“Our income was down by at least 30 per cent, we lost a lot of money through wastage, as it was hard to gauge numbers of guests and we had to let two waiting staff go,” she said.Demitriou was not opposed to upgrading the road and said that work needed to be done, but she questioned the timing and length of the roadworks, which forced a number of other businesses along the road to close down.“The road is much better since the works have been completed, they did a good job,” she said.And so far, it’s been a good year for the restaurateur with business up by around 20 per cent on usual figures.Holidaymakers, Gareth and Linda Walker who regularly stay at hotel accommodation in the area have greeted the end of roadworks with relief.“We come a few times a year and it has been horrific. The dust, dirt and lack of proper safety measures were all a concern and were very off-putting. However, it looks much better now,” Gareth said.His wife, however, believes the road has lost some of its charm.“I’m not a fan of dual carriageways generally and I think if they had made the road a little wider where possible, tidied it up, put in lights, pull-ins for cars and added bus shelters, as well as some flowers, greenery and shrubs, that was all that was really needed,” she said.Matthew Edmondson, owner of escape rooms, ‘Lockdown Paphos’, agreed that although the works were disruptive, messy and dirty, it was all worth it.“Anything which renovates Paphos and brings it up to date is good.”As much of his custom comes from online booking and only around 20 per cent from walk-ins, he was one of the lucky ones as his business didn’t really suffer.“It was a nuisance as there were barriers outside our frontage for around eight months, but our customers knew what was going on, so they were understanding,” he said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
