Elixir Energy to develop SSLNG facility in Mongolia

first_imgThe proposed SSLNG facility will supply fuel from the local coal bed methane to the South Gobi region’s large coal trucking fleet The LNG facility will be used to deliver fuel to the South Gobi region’s large coal trucking fleet. (Credit: FreeImages/Carlo San) Australian oil and gas company, Elixir Energy has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mongolia’s fuel retailer, MT Group to develop a small scale LNG (SSLNG) facility in Mongolia.Both the companies will seek to develop the SSLNG facility that will be supplied by the local coal bed methane.The LNG facility will be used to deliver fuel to the South Gobi region’s large coal trucking fleet.Elixir Energy said that the SSLNG facilities are now commonplace just to the South of Mongolia in China.Elixir managing director Neil Young said: “Supplying gas to a SSLNG plant in the South Gobi region is a great initial offtake project for our company to investigate.“There is a clear existing market in terms of the very large local coal trucking fleet which could operate on clean gas rather than diesel. We are very pleased to be working with a company of MT Group’s calibre in pursuing this project.”Elixir owns Nomgon IX CBM PSC in the South of MongoliaAccording to the company, the South Gobi hosts a large trucking fleet that currently burns diesel and which could economically be replaced by cleaner and cheaper gas fuelled vehicles.The Tavan Tolgoi mine, which is located inside Elixir’s production sharing contract (PSC), trucks approximately 15 million tonnes of coal to China annually while using thousands of trucks.Elixir Energy said: “Given Elixir’s milestone event of making Mongolia’s first gas discovery earlier this year, the Company concluded it is now timely to pursue the investigation of this first offtake option. Initial modelling indicates that a SSLNG in this location should be highly profitable.“Possible funding sources for this type of project in Mongolia could include the various international financing institutions (IFIs) present in the country and with whom Elixir has an ongoing relationship.”Elixir is a gas exploration company focused on the 100% owned Nomgon IX coal-bed methane (CBM) PSC located in the South of Mongolia, close to the Chinese border.Executed in September 2018, the 30,000 km2 PSC has a more than 10 year exploration period.last_img read more

USS Mount Whitney Participates in BALTOPS 2014

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USS Mount Whitney Participates in BALTOPS 2014 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: USS Mount Whitney View post tag: BALTOPS View post tag: 2014 For three reservists in particular, Cmdr. William “Russ” Lewis, Electronics Technician 1st Class Steven Lamont, and Lt. Don Collins, the experience of serving their Annual Training (AT) duty during BALTOPS proves a unique and rewarding experience.This is the second BALTOPS exercise that Lewis has participated in. His first was in 2012, where he served in the Civil Military Affairs directorate for Strike Force NATO.“… every job is unique,” said Lewis, a Navy reservist from Chattanooga, Tennessee, who is the submarine syndicate lead for BALTOPS 2014. “You need to be flexible and figure out where you can be of the most benefit to that operation.”Lewis serves as the liaison to the German submarine operations authority to manage the undersea warfare aspect of the exercise, ensuring 22 safe and effective training evolutions.“As a submarine syndicate lead I’m kind of in a planning role, it’s all about water space management,” said Lewis.Training events span across the full range of capabilities beginning with familiarization serials before graduating to more complex maneuvers that involve undersea, surface and air assets practicing location techniques, sonar buoy drops and acquiring targeting solutions.Behind the scenes, ensuring successful training evolutions are supported by steady communications is Electronics Technician 1st Class Steven Lamont, who serves as a high frequency (HF) transmitter expert for BALTOPS 2014. For Lamont, the exercise was a novel experience.“This is my first time serving aboard a ship,” said Lamont, a reservist from Greenville, South Carolina, whose Navy career spans 16 years. “Overall the experience of seeing other countries, seeing other ships, pulling up beside them has been great.”Lamont, like Lewis, achieved success by remaining flexible.“When I first arrived onboard, I wasn’t really sure where I would be working or what I would be doing… it wasn’t long before I learned exactly where I was needed and started putting my skills to good use,” said Lamont, who works to repair HF transmitters to aid in ship-to-ship communications with the 30 naval vessels participating in BALTOPS this year.“We’re working on the HF transmitters that are being used by the different countries involved to stay connected to each other… I’ve been having a good time jumping in and seeing what I can fix while we’re here,” he added.Lamont is not the only reservist who was exposed to shipboard life for the first time.“The biggest thing for me was the opportunity to get on a ship. In my entire naval career I have yet to be on a ship until now,” said Lt. Don Collins of Knoxville, Tennessee, who serves as assistant communications officer for the exercise. “I’ve wanted the chance to serve on Mount Whitney specifically, so I jumped at the opportunity to finally do that… now I collect information and update reports regarding communications between Mount Whitney and other elements involved with BALTOPS,” said Collins.Those communications span across the BALTOPS force which consists of surface, subsurface and aviation assets from 14 nations that are training together to enhance interoperability and collective capabilities to foster regional stability.Collins believes it is the differences among the force that make it great.Until the exercise concludes, Lewis, Lamont and Collins continue to focus on the mission.“When I go on an exercise, I’m all Navy -24 hours a day- whatever it takes,” said Lewis.The three also agree that part of every reservist’s duty while serving their AT is representing the reserves.“I think every time we go on orders, we’re a walking advertisement… I introduce myself as a reservist, I’m proud of that,” said Lewis.Not far from a whiteboard where Lamont drafted a to-do list and was leading the repair of several radios and parts, Lamont echoed Lewis’ sentiments and made it a point to showcase leadership and Navy values to junior enlisted active duty Sailors he serves with aboard Mount Whitney.Now in its 42nd year, BALTOPS is an annual, multinational exercise with the goal of enhancing maritime capabilities across the full spectrum of military operations to support stability in the Baltic Sea.[mappress]Press Release, June 18, 2014; Image: MSC US Navy Authorities View post tag: Naval Several U.S. Navy reservists are underway onboard 6th Fleet’s flagship, USS Mount Whitney (LCC20) to conduct Baltic Operations (BALTOPS) 2014, a multinational maritime exercise which takes place June 6 -21.

Saturated fat targets are opposed by industry

first_imgThe baking industry is opposed to an expected plan to introduce salt-style reduction targets for saturated fats, arguing that such a scheme would be technically problematic and expensive.Following its work on salt, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) is widely expected to launch a consultation on targets for reducing saturated fat in food components, such as pastry and cream, which are used in biscuits, cakes, pastries and savouries. Saturated fats are a major dietary cause of heart disease in the UK.”Saturated fats should not be handled in the same way as salt reduction. It’s a complex issue, much more so than salt, and this makes product development difficult and costly,” said Barbara Gallani, Biscuit Cake, Chocolate and Confectionery manager at the Food and Drink Federation.Reducing saturated fat in specific food components is par- ticularly problematic, she said. “Reductions couldn’t be made in chocolate, because of strict legal definitions of what chocolate must contain, while there is very little that can be done with cream,” she said. “If you use dough with reduced saturated fat in a chocolate-covered biscuit with a cream filling, there would be problems with fat migration and shelf-life.”Biscuit and pasty manufacturer Proper Cornish recently launched a project to reduce saturated fat. “There are things we can do, but they all cost,” said marketing manager Mark Muncey. “We also have to consider the authenticity of the product.”Targets are not the answer,” he added. “The government needs to educate people so that they take responsibility for what they eat.”Last month, the British Retail Consortium published an achievement table on saturated fat reductions in own-label pro-ducts, including sausage rolls, cakes and sandwiches, while biscuit manufacturer United Biscuits halved the saturated fat content of its McVitie’s biscuits in December, following a three-year, £6.5m project.last_img read more

News story: New Heathrow rail link to lead the way for future transport funding schemes

first_img Rail media enquiries Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Video about rail to HeathrowToday, the government also set out a new process for ensuring that taxpayer-funded rail projects are planned and scrutinised more effectively in the future.As part of the new Rail network enhancements pipeline, new rail schemes will be decided on in a staged – develop, design, deliver – approach to allow for greater assessment of feasibility and value for money.The department is also continuing to work on developing plans for a western rail access to Heathrow. We are investing in the most significant modernisation of the UK rail network since Victorian times, and I want the knowledge and expertise of investors and local partners to contribute to delivering new connections, more services and better journeys for passengers. This has already proved effective on a number of roads schemes in the UK. By encouraging innovative ideas and new investment on our railways, we can relieve the burden on taxpayers and fare payers with projects that match our transport needs. This can also support our economic and housing aspirations to ensure everyone benefits from an enhanced rail network. Heathrow is a perfect example of where this can make a real difference. Such schemes will help ensure the benefits of our major international hub are even more accessible to those across the west and south of the UK, providing vital links for travellers and exporters and attracting inward investment. Switchboard 0300 330 3000 Private companies have been asked to come forward with ideas to deliver a new southern rail link to Heathrow Airport.The link will be one of the first projects under government plans to invite third parties – such as local authorities and private sector companies – to invest in the rail network, over and above the £47 billion the government is already planning for the next 5 years.A call for ideas on market-led proposals to enhance the nation’s railways was launched today (20 March 2018) by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling. There are already a number of consortia looking to construct the southern link to Heathrow.Access to the UK’s busiest airport is just one example of ambitious proposals that would generate significant improvements for passengers across the entire network, creating a new tier of investment in rail infrastructure from the private sector.Proposed schemes would need to make commercial sense, build on the government’s significant investment in rail infrastructure and have the needs of passengers at their heart, without the over-arching need for government support.Mr Grayling said:last_img read more

News story: Civil news: further chance to bid for 2018 contract work

first_img did not submit a tender, or failed to submit compliant tenders for specific categories of law or procurement areas Which categories of law will be open to bids?Tenders will be invited in the following categories of law: Minimum contract requirementsAny organisations able to meet the minimum contract requirements will be able to tender to deliver advertised contract work under a 2018 Standard Civil Contract.This includes organisations that have already tendered for a 2018 Standard Civil contract and wish to deliver additional services. Also, organisations which have not previously tendered.What are the timescales?We expect these tenders for further face to face contract work to open by the end of June.What about immigration removal centres?Work at Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs) is allocated on a rota basis and we have already received bids significantly in excess of the number of slots available.So, the LAA will not be tendering for access to these services as part of the further procurement process.Why do this now?Our existing tender processes mean that we have already secured services in most procurement areas.These include our main face to face procurement process and the supplemental tender activity that followed in specific categories of law and procurement areas.However, we have also identified a number of organisations which wish to deliver civil legal aid but failed to submit compliant tenders in the category of law or procurement area in which they wish to deliver work.The purpose of the procurement process was to allow organisations which want to deliver publicly funded civil work and meet the LAA’s minimum requirements to do so.As a result, we are giving organisations this further opportunity to tender.What about the existing procurement process?We are well-advanced with verification activities to complete the 2018 face to face procurement process.Following our recent reminders to applicants we have also seen an increase in organisations verifying their bids.April 2018 supplemental tenderIn addition to the main face to face procurement process, the supplemental tender opportunity opened in April 2018 to attract additional services in a small number of areas.The categories of law included immigration and asylum, family and housing and debt.Organisations which tendered for a standard civil contract in the supplemental procurement process can expect to receive notification of the outcome of their tender in the week beginning 18 June 2018.Further informationCivil 2018 contracts tender family housing, debt and welfare benefits immigration and asylum mental health community care claims against public authorities (formerly known as ‘actions against the police etc’) clinical negligence public Law family mediation A new process is to open giving organisations meeting our minimum requirements a further opportunity to tender for 2018 civil contract face to face work.What is happening?We want to give organisations another chance to bid for work under the 2018 civil contract.

Iceland and Waitrose rule supermarket roost, says Which?

first_imgIceland is the nation’s top online supermarket, and Waitrose best in-store, according to a report by consumer watchdog Which?.In the survey, Iceland scored 77 out of 100 and received special praise for its value-for-money prices. Waitrose received commendation for its tidy shops and helpful staff, and came top of the in-store poll, with 75 out of 100.The Co-operative and Asda performed less well. The Co-operative only scored 57 in the in-store poll and was the only supermarket not to score a ‘good’ rating in any of the categories. Meanwhile, Asda only scored 65 in the online survey and was the only web store not rated as ‘good’ for stock availability.The news comes as the grocery market prepares for an upheaval, with plans afoot to relax Sunday trading laws, allowing the supermarkets to open fully all week, and the government threatening to crack down on supermarket price promotions. Sainsbury’s has just committed to phasing out multi-buy deals.last_img read more

Catering for all needs: AOK Kitchen & Bakery

first_imgBread: The menu includes a selection of speciality breads – some free from gluten – that are produced using ancient grains from Gilchesters Organics.Design: The interior design was created by founder Landesberg, who was inspired by the Mediterranean. “It’s amazing to see your vision come to life, and see people enjoying it,” she says.Free-from: Every item on the menu is free from refined sugar, with a multitude of dairy-, egg- and gluten-free options also available.Underground: The bakery is located below the restaurant, accessible by an outdoor staircase. Landesberg said she thought the space had a lot of potential.Location: “It’s a really popular site, it has always been known as a great location,” Landesberg says of the premises, which sits between Baker Street and Marylebone High Street.It’s all ok: The concept of AOK was inspired by Landesberg’s favourite quote: ‘Everything will be ok in the end, and if it’s not ok, it’s not the end’. AOK Kitchen & Bakery is the brainchild of Kelly Landesberg, who created the concept to fill what she saw as a gap for a feel-good eating environment.“The idea was based on my own dietary requirements and feeling like there wasn’t somewhere in London that accommodated everyone’s needs, whether you’re vegan, you eat meat, or you’re gluten-free,” Landesberg tells British Baker.At street-level, the restaurant area has 80 covers, including outdoor seating, and serves a selection of fresh, seasonal produce such as fish, salads and pasta.Downstairs, the bakery is a sea of calm, with a curved ceiling giving a cosy feel, echoed by the small ‘snug’ located next to the front door.“I wanted the bakery to be elegant and match the light colours of the restaurant upstairs, but also wanted it to have Mediterranean vibes,” says Landesberg.Since opening only a few weeks ago, Landesberg says customers have told her AOK was just what the area needed.“We’re giving people a better understanding of eating healthily,” she adds. “It’s not about being pressured to eat a certain way, it’s eating what you want to eat, but knowing that it has been delivered to you in the best way,” she adds.The bakery menu, developed by head baker and pastry chef Sebastien Chiono, was over a year in the making. It comprises cakes, pastries, tarts and breads, catering to a plethora of dietary requirements.Its organic rye sourdough uses grains from Gilchesters Organics, and it also offers a gluten-free chia seed sourdough, a gluten-free multi-seed loaf and a Couronne Bordelaise.The site’s current bestseller is Raspberry Bostok, a vegan and gluten-free cake comprising raspberries with vegan almond cream and a gluten-free brioche slice, which was developed for AOK by Chiono. He also occasionally makes a non-vegan, non-gluten-free version at Mayfair members organisation The Arts Club.All the items are baked on-site in the shared kitchen, which is underground and accessible from both the bakery and restaurant. Being underground, it has low ceiling heights, a key consideration for Chiono when selecting bakery equipment. He and his six-strong team – two bakers and four pastry chefs – use an Italian Zeta Oven, a Caplain mixer and a Hengel prover.AOK Kitchen & Bakery, Marylebone, LondonWho: Kelly Landesberg, founder of AOK Kitchen & Bakery.What: A 80-cover restaurant with an underground bakery, offering eat-in and takeaway options.Where: 52-55 Dorset Street, Marylebone, London W1U 7NQWhen: The restaurant opened last month, with the bakery following one week later. The project had been four years in the making.Why: “I felt like there wasn’t anywhere in London that accommodated for every dietary requirement – others are either really healthy or deep-fried and covered in butter. I wanted to create a feel-good environment with no pressure to follow a specific diet,” Landesberg tells us.last_img read more

‘There they are, on our dinner plates’

first_imgIn her new book, “Fellow Creatures: Our Obligations to the Other Animals,” Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Philosophy Christine Korsgaard makes the case that humans are not inherently more important than animals and therefore should treat them much better than we do.Korsgaard, Ph.D. ’81, has taught at Harvard for almost 30 years and is an expert on moral philosophy. The book is a departure from her previous theoretical work on moral philosophy, as it deals with more practical ethical questions.Drawing on the work of Immanuel Kant and Aristotle, she argues that humans have a duty to value our fellow creatures not as tools, but as sentient beings capable of consciousness and able to have lives that are good or bad for them.The Gazette spoke to Korsgaard about her book, the future of animal rights, and writing accessible philosophy.Q&AChristine KorsgaardGAZETTE: What made you decide to pursue this topic?KORSGAARD: Western moral philosophy is now more than 2,000 years old, and in all of that time very few moral philosophers have said anything about the treatment of animals. Animals are sentient beings and some are capable of interacting with us, but on the other hand there they are, on our dinner plates, pulling our wagons, hunted by us, and made to fight with one another for our amusement. It just seems like an obvious moral issue, and yet moral philosophers haven’t often asked questions like: Is this all right? Why is it OK to do these things?I’ve had a personal belief for a long time that we should be treating other animals better and in particular that we shouldn’t eat them. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 40 years and a vegan more recently. At the same time, I’m an advocate of the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant, who celebrates the value of humanity and rational nature and is one of the few philosophers to have said right out, “We have no duties to the other animals and we can use them however we please.” So I was trying to understand how to put these different positions together.GAZETTE: This is a personal subject for you, so was your approach to writing this different from your previous work?KORSGAARD: Writing about practical questions is really difficult. People talk as if the way you solve a practical problem is that you take a theory and then just apply it to a case, but it’s not like that. It takes a lot of work to put the whole battery of ideas involved in a theory to work on a practical question. In that sense, the book represents a kind of work I haven’t done before, at least not to this extent.GAZETTE: Were there issues that were particularly challenging for you to write about?KORSGAARD: One difficult thing was to articulate a position in the face of knowing that there’s a passionate but often inadequately argued objection out there to what I’m saying. If I say, “We shouldn’t experiment on animals, because we have no right to use them as mere means to our ends,” that will be met with a heated defense of the practice. People say, “We should never give that up, because it does so much good to humans.” To me that doesn’t seem to meet the point, so I am at cross-purposes with my opponents.Another difficult thing about this book was to get the audience properly in focus. I wanted to make a book that nonphilosophers could understand and think about, at least if they are willing to bear down a little on the arguments, but I also wanted to convince my colleagues in philosophy that there’s a serious philosophical topic here. “Some people think that humans are just plain more important than other animals. I ask: More important to whom?” Related Harvard program aims to protect more than wildlife GAZETTE: “Tethered importance” or “tethered goodness” is an integral element of your book. Can you explain more about that?KORSGAARD: The idea of good or importance being “tethered” is based on the idea that anything that is good is good for someone; anything that is important is important to someone. Kant’s idea is that when we pursue things that are good for us, we in effect make a claim that those things are good in an absolute sense — we have reason to pursue them and other people have a reason to treat them as good as well, to respect our choices or pursue our ends. But if we think that way, we have to say that things that are good or bad for any creature for whom things are good or bad, including animals, are good or bad in an absolute sense.Some people think that humans are just plain more important than other animals. I ask: More important to whom? We may be more important to ourselves, but that doesn’t justify our treating animals as if they’re less important to us, any more than the fact that your family is more important to you justifies you treating other people’s families as if they are less important than yours.GAZETTE: With the growing popularity of “impossible” plant-based meat and meat grown from animal cells, do you think more people are coming to a moral realization about how to treat animals? Raising the profile of animal law to match the stakescenter_img Brainy birds Study shows parrots can pass classic test of intelligence KORSGAARD: I’m not very optimistic about people coming to care more about animals and what’s good or bad for them. But the issue of how we treat animals overlaps with two issues that people care a lot about, even if it’s only for the sake of human beings: climate change and biodiversity. Factory farming is one of the major causes of global warming, and biodiversity is something people are concerned about too, even if [just] for the sake of having a healthy environment for human beings.If we got rid of factory farming, that would help animals. Biodiversity is related to that too because one of the main reasons why so many species are dying out is because of lack of habitat caused by factory farming in general and the production of meat. Many people care about the preservation of species, but that’s not the same as treating individual animals in an ethically correct way. But thinking about these issues has brought attention to the ways that we treat animals, and so there’s some room for hope that people will think more about these things.This interview has been condensed and edited for length and clarity.last_img read more
