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

Find the right loan to realize your financial goals

first_imgWhen it comes to borrowing money, many loans offer benefits beyond simple financing. With that in mind, it’s important to understand how one type of loan may be right for making home improvements, while another may be a better match for financing a wedding. The key is to research the various types of loans, know what services they’re designed to provide and then choose the one that best fits your financial needs.Credit card, personal and home equity loans are all great options to help finance purchases and achieve financial goals. Here’s a rundown of how each type of loan works:Credit card – Many people don’t realize that credit cards are actually loans, and users can make those loans as short-term or long-term as they need. Some credit cards provide low- or no-interest, short-term financing as long as the monthly statement is paid in full and on time. Users also have the option to turn their credit card balance into a longer-term loan, which may result in higher interest rates. Some credit cards may also charge an annual fee. Credit card loans can be used for common household expenses like groceries, gas or even to make automated payments for items like a magazine subscription. And if the user’s credit limit is high enough, credit cards can be used to fund larger expenses like furniture or electronics.Personal loan – Having a balance on more than one credit card can be a burden, especially if the rates are high. To help manage their budget, many consumers opt to use a personal loan to consolidate their higher-interest loans. Using a personal loan to pay down debt may save borrowers on interest payments if the rate on the personal loan is lower than on the credit card. Additionally, personal loans can give people more control over the size and timing of monthly payments.Personal loans can be used to pay for major events or expenses, such as a wedding, a big trip or those unexpected life moments such as a child’s new braces or an emergency car repair. Additionally, approved borrowers can receive their money quickly.There are also online resources, such as financial calculators, that can help borrowers visualize what their finances will look like when taking on a personal loan. Discover Personal Loans offers online debt consolidation and personal loan calculators to provide consumers with an idea of the repayment time frame as well as what potential loans payments could be on a monthly basis.Home equity loan – Once a homeowner has earned equity in their home, she or he can use that as collateral to get a loan for large expenses. Many homeowners obtain a home equity loan to finance a very costly home repair or home renovation project. This allows them to use their equity to potentially help increase the home’s value, and may increase resale profits. Other uses for home equity loans include consolidating large debt or paying for major expenses like medical bills. Typically, home equity loans have a fixed interest rate, terms and monthly payments. Interest on a home equity loan may be 100 percent tax deductible. Borrowers should consult their tax advisor about any benefits a loan may bring.Loans can help borrowers regain control of their finances but are not “one size fits all.” Different types of loans should be used for different types of expenses. The key is for borrowers to consider the type of expense they are looking to fund, the available loans and lender offerings, and determine which type of loan is most suitable for them.last_img read more

Ashwin: Aimed to contribute for team, not personal milestone

first_imgAfter claiming a six-wicket haul against Sri Lanka on the opening day of the first Test against Sri Lanka, Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said on Wednesday that he was looking to contribute towards the team’s success and is not bothered about personal milestones.India were 128/2 at stumps in reply to the hosts’s 183-run total in the first innings. Ashwin was the inspiration behind India’s impressive performance, and his figures of 6/46 was the best by an Indian in Sri Lanka, surpassing Harbhajan Singh’s 6/102 during the 2008 series.”I am very happy that I have done well here again. It is about how the game is and not about my personal milestone. I will think how to contribute more for my team, to take my team ahead. It is an extraordinary performance to bowl out a team on the first day, especially on Sri Lankan conditions and after losing the toss,” Ashwin told the media after the end of the day’s play.Also read:  Virat Kohli promises aggressive brand of leadershipSpeaking on team director Ravi Shastri he said, “Ravi Shastri is a very positive influence in the team. When I was not playing in Australia he came to me and spoke to why I am not playing. That’s where it all took off. Credit should also go to Bharat Arun as well. I look to keep improving every day.””Ishant Sharma bowled very well in the morning. After that I started bowling to my strengths and it paid off. Kumar Sangakkara’s wicket in the first over surely helps. I wanted to stay composed and relaxed and not be in a hurry,” he added.advertisementThe 28-year-old pointed out that the Indians will now have to bat long and put runs on the board as the wicket will get slower as the game progresses.”I am not convinced with the bounce aspect of it. As the game goes on I think the wicket will get really slow. I think it will get harder to get wickets. From that aspect we need to bat really well and put good runs on the board,” Ashwin said.last_img read more
