First Ever FLNG Unit – Hilli Episeyo, Sets Sail from Singapore…

first_imgThe World’s first converted floating liquefaction (FLNG) unit ‘Hilli Episeyo’ has departed Singapore and is on its way to Cameroon for LNG bunkering operations.The vessel set sail at 10 am local time on October 12, earlier than anticipated, due to the operational decision to complete LNG bunkering in Cameroon rather than in Singapore, owner and operator of LNG carriers, Golar LNG said.The company added that the voyage to Cameroon is expected to take between 32 and 40 days.It took three years to build Hilli Episeyo which was converted from a 1975-built Moss LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 125,000 cubic meters at the Keppel Shipyard.The vessel departed the shipyard on October 1 and was moved to the deep-water anchorage for final marine commissioning.The ship is designed for a liquefaction capacity of about 2.4 million tons of LNG per year. It will operate offshore at Kribi, Cameroon for Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon SA and will be the first FLNGV project in Africa.Sea News, October 13 Author: Baibhav Mishralast_img read more

Pyrotechnics warning over bonfire weekend

first_imgA full schedule of fixtures across the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two are set to take place this weekend, ahead of Bonfire Night.Any instances of pyrotechnics use means innocent parties may be at risk of serious injury as a result.Prior to Monday, November 5th, the EFL is re-launching its commitment to tackle the use of pyrotechnics, which includes smoke bombs, flares and fireworks within EFL football grounds.  This was initially launched in November 2017 that saw all 72 Clubs sign up to a new Club Charter on Pyrotechnics.Since the Charter was signed EFL clubs have been taking strong and decisive action against any fans found attempting to bring a banned item into a ground, or those who discharge pyrotechnics.Any supporter that has been, or found to be, in breach of the terms of the Charter is subject to a minimum three-season club ban. A number of Club bans have already been issued since the launch of the Charter, including an increase in club bans for away supporters due to the ongoing co-operation between EFL clubs.Clubs are permitted the flexibility to reduce the length of the club ban should an offender recognise the danger of their actions, although the overall safety of supporters is paramount.last_img read more
