Novatek says first Yamal LNG cargo sold to Petronas’ UK unit

first_imgLNG World News Staff Yamal LNG (Image courtesy of Novatek)Russia’s Novatek, the operator of the recently commissioned giant Yamal LNG export project, said on Monday that the first cargo from the Arctic facility had been sold to a UK-based LNG unit of Malaysian energy giant Petronas.The first LNG cargo containing 170 thousand cubic meters of the chilled fuel has been shipped aboard Sovcomflot’s Arc7 ice-class LNG tanker Christophe de Margerie.The cargo was bought by Petronas LNG UK Limited that has a 50% equity and capacity stake in the UK’s Dragon LNG terminal at Milford Haven.Novatek added in its statement that LNG sales under Yamal LNG’s long-term contracts will start in April 2018.“All LNG sales prior to that date will be sold by Yamal LNG shareholders on a spot basis,” the company said.Novatek’s chief executive and co-owner Leonid Mikhelson said that the departure of the first Yamal LNG shipment marks the official entry of Novatek into the global gas markets.“This event begins the process of developing and liquefying our massive natural gas resources on the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas into more than 70 million tons of LNG. This potential gives our country an opportunity to become one of the biggest global LNG exporters,” Mikhelson said.The three-train Yamal LNG plant, designed to produce about 16.5 million tonnes per year, started liquefying natural gas from the South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula earlier this month.The export project’s first liquefaction train will gradually ramp up capacity to 5.5 mtpa.Other two trains are expected to come onstream in 2018 and 2019.last_img read more

Syracuse allows five goals on 11 shots in 5-1 loss against Notre Dame

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Jordan Harris jumped. She saw the ball coming and made a quick decision.The graduate-transfer goalkeeper sprung toward the slow roller, matching the pace of Notre Dame’s Sammi Fisher. Harris extended her right arm, reaching for the ball as the two met 20 yards away from the net. But Harris hesitated.She leaned back, bracing for the possible impact of Fisher’s right foot. The moment of doubt gave Fisher just enough time to lob the ball over Harris. Fisher regained possession near the right end line and scored into an empty net to end Syracuse’s comeback attempt. Harris never got a hand on the ball.“It’s one that shouldn’t happen from many different areas,” SU head coach Phil Wheddon said.Harris’ 77th-minute mishap wasn’t her only of the night with her being out of position in all but one of Notre Dame’s five goals on Saturday. Syracuse (3-12, 0-7 Atlantic Coast) dropped its 10th straight game on the season against Notre Dame (7-8, 3-4) behind the shaky play of its goalkeeper. The scoring trend continued for Harris as she’s allowed 16 goals in the last three games, only playing 90 minutes in two of those contests.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSeconds into the game, the Orange started the game with possession. SU played back as Harris shrugged her shoulders and clenched her fists but immediately Notre Dame gained possession and shot on target toward Harris before 20 seconds elapsed on the clock.The Fighting Irish pushed forward, gaining comfort in SU’s defensive third. Four minutes into the half, Shannon Hendricks found space in the left corner and rocketed across to the far post of SU’s goal.Squared in the middle, Harris elected to not backpedal and committed to her original position. She jumped but didn’t have the reach. The ball missed her fingers by a couple inches. It settled on the leg of Jenna Tivnan, who misfired it into her own net.Despite the blunder, Harris started to settle into a groove, not letting her past mistake faze her. Until, UND’s Karin Muya fired a ball toward Harris. She reacted, moving left, but the ball deflected off SU’s Clarke Brown and spun right. Harris couldn’t track it, letting the ball roll in easily.“I thought she did fairly well in some situations,” Wheddon said. “I’m not in the habit of criticizing players just yet.”No players were made available for comment after the loss.Harris regrouped in the second half but played indecisive. She patted down easy catches instead of reeling them in, made slow and careful movements in the box and didn’t commit to a position as easily as before. And for the half’s first 30 minutes, it worked.Georgia Allen got the Orange on the board off a Kate Hostage rebound and cut the lead to one. Harris watched her offense play forward as SU tried to mount a comeback. But Notre Dame’s first opportunity after the score in the Orange’s box changed the game, Wheddon said.Unlike Harris’ first two errors where she committed to her position too soon, this time she was too reluctant to act. Harris slid on the pitch after the misjudgment, immediately getting up, but she was out of the play. The net was already exposed and Fisher already had perfect position.“I wouldn’t want to make a call on that,” Wheddon said when asked if Harris was to fault on that goal. “(My) initial thought is I’d love to see that one not go in the back of the net.”In the waning minutes of the game, Harris allowed two more goals including an errant punch that turned into a score.“I need to look at the goals,” Wheddon said. “That’s a private conversation between me and the goalkeeper to see if she could save those.”Before the game, Harris was honored at Syracuse’s senior night celebration, smiling with a bouquet of flowers in hand. By the end of Sunday’s contest with Notre Dame, Harris walked off the field silent with her head down.

#AFCONonCiti: Dominant Cameroon ease to win over Guinea-Bissau

first_imgOn the balance of chances, the Indomitable Lions, who are seeking a sixth African title should have been ahead by halftime. Christian Bassogog had the first chance after just seven minutes when he raced to a looped ball from deep in midfield but his left footed shot from inside the box went over. In the 20th minute they had their first shot on target when Michael Ngadeu’s header off an Eric Choupo Moting cross went straight to the keeper.Four minutes on the turn, the holders had another close opportunity when Andre-Franck Anguissa was picked out with a little cutback from the left but he placed his shot wide. Total Man of the Match: Andre Franck Zambo Anguissa (Cameroon) In the last AFCON edition in 2017, six of Cameroon’s seven goals were scored after the 59th minute and that tradition seemed to continue as second half goals from Yaya Banana and substitute Stephane Bahoken saw them pick their first three points of the campaign. Cameroon continued pressing and had a clear chance to break the deadlock on the half hour mark but Anguissa missed a sitter. Karl Toko Ekambi made a good run on the left before cutting back a cross, but Anguissa placed his shot wide with the keeper off his line. The Indomitable Lions were using the long balls from midfield planted behind the defense to try and open up for a goal. They had another scoring chance off this tact when Ekambi looped the ball into the box to find Bassogog, but the latter fired over. Guinea Bissau had two chances in the half, first Judilson Gomes’ shot from distance flying just above the target while Juary Soares’ overhead kick looped over.In the second half, Clarence Seedorf’s men were off to a powerful start and got their opening goal in the 66th minute, Banana bouncing a header at the backpost off an Ekambi corner. They doubled their tally just three minutes later, Bahoken slamming the ball home just two minutes after coming on. Defending champions Cameroon started their title defense on a high, hitting Guinea Bissau 2-0 in their Group F opening match in Ismailia on Tuesday night. A clearance off a cross hit Guinea Bissau defender Sory Mane and the ball fell kindly on Bahoken who beat the keeper from close range. Cameroon’s next assignment is against Ghana on Saturday.last_img read more
