(Credit: Pixabay/Gerd Altmann) Compressor Controls Corporation (CCC), a division of Roper Technologies, has secured multiple contracts for Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project in Russia.The company had earlier collaborated with Novatek on turbomachinery optimisation and standardisation for the Yamal LNG project.Located in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region’s Gydan Peninsula, the Arctic LNG 2 project has an expected production capacity of 19.8 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).Under the terms of the contracts, CCC will supervise the turbomachinery controls and optimisation of all three 6.6 mtpa LNG trains’ centrifugal compressors and expanders.Furthermore, CCC will supply an emulator for use during the plant simulation and its eventual OTS.The firm will make use of specialised local and global teams and additionally, will work together with the OEMs, to execute and deliver the control algorithms.CCC Global Projects director Osama Abou Shabab said: “These contracts recognise CCC’s performance on the Yamal LNG project and allow us to continue strengthening our partnership with Novatek.“We’re proud that Novatek has entrusted our global team to control all critical and non-critical machines in its hallmark Arctic LNG 2 project. CCC’s field-tested, proven control techniques and algorithms will maintain and improve the project’s targeted RAM.”Arctic LNG 2 project detailsThe Arctic LNG 2 project includes the installation of three gravity-based structures (GBS) in the Gulf of Ob and associated LNG storage facilities having a total capacity of 687,000m³. The GBS will be concrete-built structures having a length, width and height of 330m, 152m and 30m, respectively.The GBS will host three natural gas liquefaction trains having a production capacity of 6.6Mt of LNG a year each. The liquefaction trains will be installed with a feed gas compressor and two boil-off compressors each.The first of the trains is scheduled to be commissioned in 2023, while the second and third trains are likely to begin operations in 2024 and 2026, respectively.The project is based on the hydrocarbon resources of the Utrenneye field. Novatek is the operator of the Arctic LNG 2 project with 60% stake, and is partnered by Total (10%), CNPC (10%), CNOOC (10%) and the Japan Arctic LNG – a consortium of Mitsui & Co and JOGMEC (10%).Last September, McDermott International’s joint venture (JV) in China had bagged a contract to deliver three complex modules for Novatek’s $21.3bn Arctic LNG 2 project.The joint venture – Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan Offshore Engineering (QMW) will be responsible for the fabrication of three pre-assembled unit complex process modules for the Russian LNG project.
Home » News » Agencies & People » CIELA launch now very likely to proceed, says founder previous nextAgencies & PeopleCIELA launch now very likely to proceed, says founderInitial worries about number of agents who had signed up to join the campaigning organisation have proved unfounded.Nigel Lewis20th July 20170638 Views CIELA’s founding members at an inaugural gathering earlier this year.The CIELA launch strategy to highlight the organisations potential downfall unless agents sign up in enough numbers has worked after founder Charles Wright revealed that it is on track for a full launch on October 1st.In June the Charter for Independent Estate and Letting Agents predicted the organisation would face a bleak future unless independent agents who had shown interest paid to join the organisation and give it enough revenue for a launch. But now Charles says agent recruitment is back on track after initial worries if “current trends continue”.The organisation has also recently launched its full website, positioning itself as a new voice for agents to prevent the “corporate takeover of the industry”.CIELA has set itself some tough initial goals for its first few months following the official launch including stopping the ban on letting fees and locking horns with Purplebricks and other online agents.“It has become clear that the most important post-launch priority for our members is to shine the spotlight on rogue independent agents,” says Charles (pictured, left).“The consensus is that sloppy standards among lower-quality agents, who are the ones most likely to be avoiding legislative requirements, stimulate the most public complaints and are the primary reason for the industry’s poor reputation.“Further, there is still no organisation actively campaigning to improve the industry’s image.”To this end, CIELA says it is to campaign hard to expose “lower-quality” agents and work to ensure they comply with all legislation via an online checker-cum-certification process on its website, which will enable agents – whether they are members of not – to display a ‘seal of integrity’ to display on their websites.Consumer guaranteeOther ideas being mooted by CIELA include an ABTA-style consumer guarantee to recompense consumers who are victims of dishonest conduct by agents, underwritten by an insurance company.CIELA is also getting in to bed with the HomeOwner’s Alliance (HOA), with which it has already had exploratory talks about how both organisations could work together to highlight the industry’s more reputable operators.Although the HOA is generally critical of the industry as a whole, (it recently called agents’ activities a “murky world”) it has made sympathetic noises about independent agents in the past, including a report it produced in March.It claimed that the big agent chains were less likely to discuss terms and fees openly on first contact with potential clients, while independent agents are more likely give out this information at the first point of enquiry.Read the CIELA back story. charles wright Charter for Independent Estate and Letting Agents CIELA July 20, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Saint Mary’s alumna Molly Bell, class of 1997, will host the third annual Bloom Seminar, in which middle school-aged girls and their mothers will participate in two workshops — “Love Your Beauty” and “Confidence: A Journey” — to develop the girls’ confidence and self-esteem. The Bloom Seminar will run July 10 in conjunction with the fine arts and sports camps at the College this summer.According to Bell, the idea for the seminar stemmed from her role in advertising. She said she knew young women could be affected by the media, and when she had a daughter, she felt compelled to do something to help young girls during a critical time in their growth.“‘Love Your Beauty’ is really talking about, ‘Is beauty what you see on the outside or is beauty from the inside?’” she said. “Even though everything around them is inundating them and telling them that outer beauty is where they’re supposed to put the most emphasis, and that’s what defines them, when you really step back and think about the women that you love in your life and the women you look up to, the things that really matter come down to your inner beauty.”Bell said this workshop focuses on educating young girls about issues surrounding female beauty, such as objectification, while “Confidence: A Journey” focuses more on confidence in a more realistic sense.“Confident isn’t something we just decide we’re going to be,” Bell said. “It’s actually a state of being that is in flux. With girls, we always tell them, ‘We want you to be empowered and we want you to be confident,’ but for a lot of young girls, it feels daunting.”According the Bell, this workshop will show girls that confidence comes from bravery.“We gain confidence by fear and overcoming fear,” she said. “When something tragic happens in our lives, the confidence comes from getting back up. That confidence is not just this pretty, white thing that grows on a tree and you grab it. It’s actually kind of dirty. We have to go through pain and hardship to get to confidence.“Confident women are usually women that have a story.”In 2013, Saint Mary’s published “The Status of Girls in Indiana,” the first comprehensive study on the health and well-being of girls done in Indiana.“Saint Mary’s was really feeling strongly that they wanted to respond to some of these statistics, one of which that high school girls seem that they have more of an incidence of depression and they feel this pressure for perfection,” she said. “By doing that report, [the College] sent the message that [it is a] part of Indiana and part of wanting to make sure women’s health is addressed as a whole.“Not only just the women that are students but for young women in their state. My program also speaks to that — that Saint Mary’s is invested in young women and women’s health.”The seminar is targeted at girls in fifth through seventh grade because they are on the verge of puberty and are trying to find who they are, Bell said.“They’re trying to assert themselves and to find their place in the world,” Bell said. “I felt it was important to meet with them and to have an experience with them almost when they’re on the cusp of [puberty] and before they hit it because I think they’re still rooted in their moms, and their mom has been through that. I wanted to have an experience where mom and daughter could maybe talk about some issues before they’re in the throes of it.”Bell said the focus of the mother-daughter relationship throughout the seminar serves to empower both mother and daughter to work through some of the self-esteem issues faced by young girls.“As much as we don’t think we need [mothers] when we’re in middle school, your mom is your biggest advocate whether you like it or not,” she said. “To have a powerful experience with your mom in a day where you’re just focusing on each other, that is something that you can tap into in those moments when you feel like your whole world is coming down. To have both of you on the same page and holding hands through it, it helps in those times when you want to push your mom away.”Bell said she hopes her seminar helps girls create conversations about issues regarding confidence and self-esteem.“First and foremost, I hope they have a fun, empowering day together,” she said. “Hopefully, they can take just one thing away from that day and go forth and either share it with each other or share it with others. I don’t think you can solve all these problems and find answers to them in one day, but my hope is that it gives them some tools that as they leave the seminar, they feel like it continues.”Tags: Bloom Seminar, saint mary’s, The Status of Girls in Indiana

According to the report titled State Of The World’s Fathers produced by MenCare, African men are among the most likely in the world to father children with more than one woman.Kenyan men are the least likely to have children with more than one woman, Kenya is over-taken by countries like Uganda and Nigeria, whose men Kenyan women prefer for their trust and care, as well as Ethiopia to emerge bottom on the list of countries in Africa with a high number of promiscuous men out of the 25 African countries surveyed.The report also looks at the role of fathers as caregivers. Although men might want to be more involved in raising children and in domestic tasks, there is often a lot of resistance and stigma, the 2015 reports says.Most African countries have some form of official paternity leave, where Kenya is one of Africa’s best on this front, mandating two weeks of paid paternity leave.In 29 countries in Africa, it is just 1-6 days. Tunisia gives one day paternity leave, South Africa and Tanzania give three days, while Ethiopia gives five days of unpaid leave “in the event of exceptional or serious events.”This is the first time a global status report on fatherhood has been published. The State of the World’s Mothers has been published since 1999 and State of the World’s Children has been published since 1996.
