B.C.’s LNG industry has a bright future ahead, according to President of the B.C. LNG Alliance

first_imgKeen added, “It’s urgent we get this right, as the window of opportunity to sell B.C. LNG into the global market is closing quickly,” said Keane. “After 60 years of natural gas exports to the U.S., there is declining demand for our product there.”Keen noted that companies preparing to make a Final Investment Decision do so in the context of the global LNG market and require clarity, certainty and a competitive fiscal environment that recognizes the sizeable technical and financial challenges of very large and complex projects with significant risk.“B.C. has a world class resource, robust environmental protection, incredibly talented people, great education and health care systems and a stable political environment.” Keane concluded. “Our members want to invest in British Columbia.”Members of the Alliance include: Kitimat LNG (Chevron Canada and Apache Canada); LNG Canada (Shell Canada Energy, PetroChina, KOGAS and Mitsubishi Corporation); Pacific NorthWest LNG (PETRONAS, JAPEX, Indian Oil Corporation, Sinopec and Petroleum Brunei); Prince Rupert LNG (BG Canada); Triton LNG (AltaGas and Idemitsu Canada) and Woodfibre LNG (Pacific Oil and Gas).Advertisement “The new LNG industry in British Columbia is not a forgone conclusion,” Keane said. “If LNG is to be viable in this province, our industry, along with each level of government, will have to make some difficult decisions in order to cross the finish line.”The projects proposed by the Alliance’s members is said to constitute the largest investment ever seen in B.C.The six projects represent a total potential investment ranging in tens of billions of dollars, just for the liquefaction plants alone, according to the B.C. LNG Alliance.- Advertisement -The alliance goes on to say investments in pipelines and upstream production facilities would add billions more to the total.The alliance estimates up to 4,000 new jobs could be created to construct each large-scale LNG plant, while thousands of new and permanent jobs would be required to operate the plants and support the industry.“We need to find the right balance that enables British Columbians to get fair value for their resource while ensuring our industry can compete in world markets over the long term,” Keane said. “There are challenges, but they are not insurmountable.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Actors hide clues in tests for ‘deputies’

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Professional actors, retired law-enforcement officers, retired firefighters and college students acted out some of the serious situations the deputies will face after graduation from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Academy in Whittier. The trainees came from their familiar surroundings to the North Academy campus in Valencia to test their responses. “We’re trying to hire 1,000 deputies a year and thought this would be a good thing for the college, as well as putting the Whittier recruits in a new environment to keep them on their toes,” said Sgt. Robert Lewis, North Academy coordinator. “It’s a good hiring tool for us. There’s a definite interest in law enforcement, we’re finding out.” Lewis said that the families of recruits are invited to participate to see what their loved ones face as the academy takes advantage of retirees’ years of experience. “This is what we call critical role-playing.” Recruits practiced traffic stops and responded to simulated robberies, burglaries and prowler behavior. They also responded to reports from callers about individuals said to look suspicious or just not to fit in. VALENCIA – It had all the makings of a full-blown crime spree – shouting victims, combative suspects and dozens of people who were armed and appeared dangerous. For the last three days, suspicious-looking people hung out in classrooms and halls at College of the Canyons. Some appeared hostile; others, just out of it. The climax of what appeared to be a campus crime spree came when snipers pinned down sheriff’s deputies, who had to think quickly to protect their colleagues and restore public safety. Fortunately, the “crimes” were all simulations of realities that the deputies in training may face on the job. “We’re also simulating a sniper ambush,” Lewis said before the exercise began. “The recruits will have to react and make critical decisions on how to direct personnel in to handle the situation.” Part of every academy class, role-playing scenarios give training officers the chance to see recruits in lifelike situations. They may need to weed out any without the “street smarts” to do the job. “There have been incidents, although they are few and far between, where recruits do well academically, … with their bookwork and tests, but when you give them hands-on role-playing, they can’t walk and chew gum at the same time,” Lewis said. “We separate them and guide them toward additional training and experience if they really want to do this. It has also served as an eye-opener for some people.” The simulations, which concluded Thursday, were held while College of the Canyons was conducting winter-session classes with fewer students on campus than usual. College spokesman John McElwain said that having 5,000 students on campus rather than the usual 15,000 gave the recruits a chance to work in a real situation without having to do crowd control in the process.

Naveen cancels brewery project in Dhenkanal

first_imgOdisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday cancelled the setting up of a brewery plant in Dhenkanal district where hundreds of trees were felled despite strong protests by the villagers.Mr. Patnaik took the decision based on the recommendations of Revenue Divisional Commissioner D.V. Swamy, who probed the felling of trees in Jhinkargadi forest.“Based on the factual report, the allocation of bottling plant may be cancelled and alternative site may be provided. Unnecessary felling of trees may be stopped forthwith, and immediate plantation should be taken up,” Mr. Swamy noted in his report submitted to the government.The government went back on its decision following a massive public outcry.Mr. Patnaik had himself performed the ground-breaking ceremony of the ₹102-crore project, which was to be set up by P&A Bottlers Private Limited, on November 3. The plant was to come up on 12 acres of forestland in Jhinkargadi. In a throwback to the Chipko movement of the 1970s, women of Balarampur village successfully thwarted the tree-felling bid by the Dhenkanal district administration on November 7 by embracing the trees.On November 17, the administration descended on the scene with hordes of police personnel and chased away the villagers who were putting up a stiff resistance to save the trees. Even then, more than 500 trees were felled.The images of women clasping the trees had then gone viral and condemnation of the police high-handedness poured in from all parts of the globe. Activists and citizens had rushed to Balarampur to give moral support to the villagers.“Although our resistance was a small one, it never lacked the determination. We welcome the Chief Minister’s decision to cancel the project. Now, we want the government to declare Jhinkargadi forest a prohibited zone for all non-forest use,” said Sushanta Kumar Dhala, Secretary, Balarampur Gramya Parichalana Parishad.Balarampur villagers, who had congregated at Jhinkargadi forest to intensify their agitation against the project, celebrated their victory on Monday by taking out a procession in the village.last_img read more
