The contract to the Norwegian vessel builder has a firm period of 15 years alongside 10 years of options BW Offshore wins FPSO services contract for the Barossa project. (Credit: michaelmep from Pixabay) Santos has awarded a $4.6bn contract to BW Offshore pertaining to the floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (FPSO) of the Barossa gas and condensate project, offshore Australia.BW Offshore will be responsible for the construction, connection, and operation of the vessel. The lease and operate contract has a firm period of 15 years alongside 10 years of options.BW Offshore CEO Marco Beenen said: “This award confirms our ability to leverage extensive operational and development capabilities to win and execute offshore energy transition related projects.“The Barossa FPSO represents a new type of infrastructure-like contract for BW Offshore with attractive long-term returns, supported by strong partnerships with equity co-investors and banks.”Santos said that the contract to the Norwegian vessel builder is subject to a final investment decision (FID) on the $3.6bn Barossa project by Santos and its partners.The FID is expected to be taken in the coming weeks, while first gas from the offshore field is anticipated to be achieved during the first half of 2025.The Australian energy company said that the FPSO contract includes an upfront pre-payment and an option to buyout. This will help Santos and its partners in the project to reduce the overall capital expenditure by nearly $1bn.Santos managing director and CEO Kevin Gallagher said: “The decision to proceed with an FPSO services contract maintains a low ongoing operating cost while engineering enhancements have significantly reduced the project’s carbon footprint.“This reduction in capital expenditure makes Barossa one of the lowest cost of supply projects in the world for LNG and will provide new supply into a tightening LNG market.”According to BW Offshore, the FPSO for the Barossa gas and condensate project will have a processing capacity of up to 800 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas. The vessel will also handle up to 11,000 barrels per day of stabilised condensate.BW Offshore said that the production vessel will be turret moored with a newbuilt hull based on the company’s RapidFramework design. The topside of the Barossa FPSO will weigh nearly 35,000 tons.The vessel will be constructed in South Korea and Singapore. The natural gas produced and processed by it will be exported through the Bayu-Undan to Darwin pipeline system to the Darwin LNG plant.On the other hand, the condensate produced from the Barossa field will be stored on the FPSO from which it will be offloaded periodically.Currently, Santos has an operated stake of 62.5% in the offshore gas and condensate project, located nearly 300km north of Darwin. It is partnered by SK E&S, which holds the remaining stake of 37.5%.JERA is expected to join as a partner in the Barossa project, once Santos completes the previously announced sale of a 12.5% stake to the Japanese company.
Amanda PorterReporter and Anchor for 44NewsMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me: DECEMBER 3RD, 2017 AMANDA PORTER INDIANA Buehler’s IGA in the Jacobsville neighborhood of Evansville is closing, leaving families with few options for fresh produce, and grocery store options.The announcement came Tuesday, but many are just learning of the grocers closing. Buehler’s IGA has adjusted hours, 8 am to 6pm daily, and is expected to close after the holidays.Owned by The Houchens Food Group, the company says high theft, and low sales at Buehler’s IGA are the reason for the closing.Jobs for the 24 employees will be relocated, but a store manager says the closing is hard.“It’s sad that we all… we can’t work here anymore because we were all family.”The stores closing affects hundreds in the Jacobsville neighborhood as many people walk, bike, or bus to the local store.When fresh food, or groceries are more than one miles away, the neighborhood is considered a food desert.Jacobsville neighborhood improvement association president Melissa Tines worked to bring awareness to the possibility of the IGA closing, but the company still decided it will close the neighborhood grocery store.Tines says help from community members can prevent closings like these that affect low-income families.Families should prepare for alternative options for getting food in the house such as carpooling, using the city bus, or cabs.The next closest grocer is more than two miles away; The Save-A-Lot at Diamond Avenue, and Wesselman’s on Fulton avenue.Jacobsville neighborhood improvement association president Melissa Tines encourages anyone to join monthly meetings held every third Tuesday, or reach out to their Facebook page for more information.“This is all the more reason to come to your neighborhood association meetings, get involved with your city council, and with local businesses.” FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

ASRAAM – Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile enabling UK pilots to engage and defend themselves against other aircraft ranging in size from large multi-engine aircraft to small drones. In service with the Royal Air Force on the Tornado and Typhoon aircraft This £50m factory supports 700 jobs in Bolton, showing how central strong British defence industry is to our national prosperity. MBDA’s investment has created more than 100 new jobs, and this has been supported by a £400m contract from the Government helping to create a further 100 roles within the company. You can’t have prosperity without security. MBDA in Bolton is keeping Britain safe while creating highly-skilled jobs and opportunities, demonstrating our commitment to the people of Bolton and the North West. MBDA has a history in the Lancashire region stretching back for more than 80 years when the Lostock site was first opened to build propellers for the war effort. The new facility will now replace that site and provide a truly cutting-edge solution, designed to meet the modern requirements of the MOD and worldwide export customers. It will significantly improve the company’s manufacturing and test capabilities, as well as making them a more agile outfit whilst improving value-for-money for the taxpayer through contributing further cost reductions to the £1.4 billion in savings already generated by the innovative partnership approach to complex weapons between the MOD and MBDA.Work at the site was given a boost just last April when the Defence Secretary signed a £400 million deal with MBDA to upgrade the ultra-accurate Brimstone missile to become compatible with Typhoon jets. That contract created around 130 new jobs and sustained a further 270 existing jobs at MBDA’s sites in Bolton, Stevenage and across the supply chain.The Bolton factory also works on the Sea Ceptor missile, which entered service on the Type 23 frigates in May and provides a powerful shield against airborne threats for Royal Navy ships. Land Ceptor, from the same family completed its first successful firing trials in April 2018 as the future battlefield barrier launched from a vehicle on a Swedish test fire range.Other missiles the site works on include: Sea Venom – primarily anti-ship missile designed to destroy small, medium and large vessels, using an imaging infrared seeker that offers full ‘fire and forget’ capabilities in all environments will equip the Royal Navy’s Wildcat Helicopters Meteor – world-class air-to-air, radar-guided missile able to defeat fast-moving manoeuvrable targets at long range. It will enter service on Typhoon with the RAF in 2018 and the F35 from 2023 The new facility will also support the Anglo-French “One Complex Weapon” Centres of Excellence initiative – a cross Government scheme which will allow MBDA to develop cutting-edge technology in both the UK and France, while driving new ways of working and increasing efficiency.The official opening also saw MBDA re-sign the Armed Forces Covenant by which it has already shown its commitment to the military community through facilitating flexible working, support and leave schemes for reservists and participating in the MOD Employer Recognition scheme as well as directly supporting several armed forces charities. Spear 3 – weapon powered by an innovative miniaturised turbojet engine instead of a rocket motor being developed to meet the F-35’s ground attack requirement Chris Allam, Managing Director of MBDA UK, said: I am delighted that the Secretary of State for Defence has today opened our brand-new facility in Bolton. This new site builds on 80 years of illustrious company history down the road at Lostock and prepares us for the challenges of the future. The significant investment placed by MBDA into Bolton is testament to our commitment to our people, to the area, and to delivering on our order book for our customers. An opening ceremony saw the Defence Secretary unveil a plaque to mark the completion of five years of work and £50 million worth of investment into the high-tech site, which has been labelled ‘the jewel in the crown’ of weapons firm MBDA.It marks a major milestone for the new site, where design, engineering and manufacturing experts are producing state-of-the-art equipment and systems. Complex weapons being built there will go on to do everything from arming F-35 fighter jets to protecting British troops and Royal Navy ships, whilst the move to the site has seen 100 new jobs created.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:
