After Keystone, a Reluctance to Finance Pipelines

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Zahra Hirji for InsideClimate News:Six months after the Obama administration rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, at least 20 other proposed energy projects—mines, pipelines, plants, related rail projects and export terminals—have been canceled, rejected or delayed, according to research compiled and mapped by InsideClimate News.Sustained grassroots resistance and public opposition have played a major role in at least some of these decisions; other influential factors include unfavorable economic conditions such as low oil prices, as well as governments’ environmental concerns and project siting issues.Proposed in 2008, the Keystone XL was slated to transport Canadian oil sands crude to Gulf Coast refineries. Federal regulators rejected the upper leg of the project, which ended in Nebraska, for its potential climate impact and minimal economic benefits—and activists hailed the decision as a victory for their years of action against the project.Since then, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected two project applications—for the Oregon-based Jordan Cove LNG project and Pacific Connector Pipeline—and delayed the decisions on two other facilities. For five of the projects, the bids or key permits were rejected by either a federal panel or state or local officials. Companies chose to cancel five other projects, including Arch Coal’s abandoning its planned Otter Creek coal mine in Montana and Kinder Morgan’s pulling the plug on its Northeast Energy Direct pipeline. The remaining facilities are delayed.According to Tom Sanzillo, director of finance for the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), what’s driving the coal decisions is straightforward: No one is willing to financially support these projects anymore.So far this year, the nation’s two top coal companies, Peabody Coal and Arch Coal, announced bankruptcy. “The bankruptcies have just rocked the industry,” said Sanzillo, who cited a roster of investors who are “walking away” from coal: bankers, equity markets, venture capitalists and hedge funds.For the oil and gas industries, it’s more complicated. According to Sanzillo, “there should be a concern that the utilities are building too many pipelines and the [regulators] should be concerned about how consumers pay for it.” Sanzillo co-authored a recent report detailing the risks of overbuilding pipelines in Appalachia.Full article: Wave of Fossil Fuel Project Cancellations Follow Keystone XL Rejection After Keystone, a Reluctance to Finance Pipelineslast_img read more

Odfjell Drilling acquiring stake in Norwegian floating wind developer

first_imgOdfjell Drilling is investing in Oceanwind AS with an aim to acquire a stake that would ensure a controlling position in the Norway-based floating wind company. “In 2001, as founders of SWAY, we initiated the game-changing technology for floating offshore wind turbines. Almost twenty years later we have decided to enter the business of owning and operating such assets and become an important contributor to the reduction of fossil fuel emissions”, said Oceanwind Founder Jon Erik Borgen and CTO/Founder Eystein Borgen. “Developing solutions to connect our rigs to offshore wind installations is one possible road to zero emission drilling. With ownership in Oceanwind, we are well positioned to make it a reality”, said Per Lund, EVP Technology & Sustainability of Odfjell Drilling. A long-term goal for Oceanwind is “to own and operate harsh environment floating offshore wind turbines” and, according to the two companies’ press release from 27 August, both believe that partnering is a winning combination for further commercialising offshore wind energy. Oceanwind AS has been founded by a team that was part of Sway, a Norwegian technology developer that tested the Sway turbine in 2010/2011. “Our objective is to create value for our shareholders and society by leveraging almost five decades of competence in operating floating assets in harsh environments to develop a solid concept within offshore wind together with Oceanwind’s founders. I hope this day is the beginning of a new chapter, and another major milestone in the company’s history”. “In 1971, Rederiet Odfjell made the final investment needed to complete the first floating drilling rig design ever created in Norway. This was the beginning of what we now recognise as Odfjell Drilling. I believe we are in a similar situation today”, said Simen Lieungh, CEO of Odfjell Drilling AS. According to the Norwegian offshore drilling contractor, the move will support it on a path to zero-emissions drilling through projects that would connect its rigs to floating wind farms. Odfjell Drilling’s buy-in is now subject to successful completion of the contemplated equity tranches, according to the company.last_img read more

Russian Athletes Banned from Rio Paralympics Games

first_imgDOPE SCANDALRussian athletes have been banned from competing at the Rio 2016 Paralympics following the country’s doping scandal.The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) had opened suspension proceedings following the McLaren report, and has now confirmed the ban.The report, published last month, claimed Russia had operated a state-sponsored doping programme.The Russian Paralympic Committee will reportedly appeal against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).In contrast to the IPC, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose not to give Russia a blanket ban from the Olympic Games.The Rio 2016 Paralympics begin in 31 days time and 267 Russian athletes across 18 sports will miss the Games.“The anti-doping system in Russia is broken, corrupted and entirely compromised,” said IPC President, Sir Philip Craven, at a news conference in Rio yesterday.“The Russian Paralympic Committee is unable to ensure compliance with and enforcement of the IPC anti-doping code and the world anti-doping code within their own national jurisdiction and they cannot fulfill its fundamental obligation as an IPC member.“As a result, the Russian Paralympic Committee is suspended with immediate effect.”“Tragically this situation is not about athletes cheating a system, but about a state-run system that is cheating the athletes. The doping culture that is polluting Russian sport stems from the Russian government.“The Russian government has catastrophically failed its Para-athletes. Their medals-over-morals mentality disgusts me. The complete corruption of the anti-doping system is contrary to the rules and strikes at the very heart of the spirit of Paralympic sport.“It shows a blatant disregard for the health and wellbeing of athletes and, quite simply, has no place in Paralympic sport. Their thirst for glory at all costs has severely damaged the integrity and image of all sport, and has certainly resulted in a devastating outcome for the Russian Paralympic Committee and Para-athletes.”The McLaren Report found that Russia’s sports ministry manipulated urine samples provided by its athletes.The report identified 27 samples relating to eight Para sports, five of which are summer sports, including some governed by the IPC.The IPC has also found evidence that samples were swapped during the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games and they plan to re-analyse every Russian sample from Sochi.The IPC allowed the Russian Paralympic Committee to present their case before they decided on the ban.The IOC was widely criticised for ignoring the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) recommendation to ban Russia from the Rio Games.Instead, each individual sporting federation was given the power to decide if Russian competitors were clean to compete.A three-person IOC panel then had the final say.In the end, more than 270 Russian athletes were cleared to compete at the Olympics.MONDAY SCHEDULE· Archery Starts at 13:00· Basketball Starts at 02:30· Boxing Starts at 15:00· Canoeing Starts at 16:30· Diving Starts at 20:00· Equestrian Starts at 14:00· Fencing Starts at 13:00· Football Starts at 02:00· Gymnastics Starts at 00:30· Handball Starts at 01:50· Hockey Starts at 00:30· Judo Starts at 14:00· Rowing Starts at 12:30· Rugby 7s Starts at 16:30· Sailing Starts at 17:05· Shooting Starts at 13:00· Swimming Starts at 02:03· T/ Tennis Starts at 00:00· Tennis Starts at 14:45· Volleyball Starts at 00:30· Water Polo Starts at 13:00· Weightlifting Starts at 14:00Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

In wake of grandfather’s death, West turns in career performance

first_imgAs the Syracuse players stormed the field before their home opener, Jarrod West kneeled in the eye of the hurricane.Right knee touching down on the ‘G’ of the ‘ORANGE’ in the end zone, West put his forehead in his hand. He spoke with his grandfather, Frank, who passed away Saturday morning.“I said a prayer in the end zone and I told him I’d meet him in the end zone,” West said.Two hours later, he did. West hauled in a 65-yard deep post from Terrel Hunt midway through the third quarter and upon breaking the plane of that same end zone, immediately dropped to a knee and prayed again.On a day when West said he had trouble getting out of bed in the morning, he not only caught that touchdown, but turned in a career performance in SU’s (1-2) 54-0 home opener win against Wagner (1-2) on Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFive catches for 147 yards and a pair of third-down receptions on Syracuse’s first touchdown drive rounded out West’s breakout game.“My parents tried to keep it from me, but I found out and I was pretty hurt,” West said. “But it just gave me that extra oomph to play today.”Every weekend this summer, West drove from Syracuse to his home in Bethlehem, Pa. And every weekend he made sure to go visit his grandfather in nearby Nazareth.“I would always try to find an opportunity to go and visit him because he doesn’t get a lot of visitors,” West said. “I felt like it made his day when he got to see me and stuff.“He’d always wear his Syracuse hat.”When West arrived at training camp this summer as Syracuse’s No. 1 receiver, though, he struggled. Filling the void left by Alec Lemon and Marcus Sales was a tall task, and one that resulted in West catching just five passes for 60 yards during his first two games.But that all changed on Saturday. West caught short passes, crossing routes and the deep ball — and most importantly, he fulfilled his promise to his grandfather.“I was happy to see that he played well and overcame a difficult situation,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “Losing somebody he loves so much.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 14, 2013 at 10:16 pm Contact Stephen: [email protected] | @Stephen_Bailey1last_img read more


first_img-30- TRAINER QUOTES GARY STEVENS, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “I had confidence going in. He relaxed like a dream for me. I knew if he would relax, we’d have a good chance. I was loaded going into the turn, a horse came up to our outside, he got headed but he’s tough, he likes a fight.“He loves it, just loves it; he went pretty easy. I watched his last race, when Mike (Smith) was on him and he battled back then too. Those were different kinds of horses but he really came back for Mike when he went left-handed with the whip. I noticed he really responded for Mike last time and he did the same for me today. He made the lead and was looking for someone else to challenge him.”VICTOR ESPINOZA, FINNEGANS WAKE, SECOND: “I didn’t really think we had it, not today. He was a little bit flat today, all the way, as soon as he came out of the gate. He was a little lazy, not really running, he was empty all the way. I was surprised, he ran a good race still. I got next to the winner and was hoping I could get some company and cruise a little bit more but it’s one of those things. It was not his day.” JOCKEY QUOTES PETER EURTON, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “I just told Gary to keep him relaxed. He watched tapes on him and talked to Mike (Smith) about him. The question was just whether he’d just be too keen early, and Mike said, ‘Put ’em to sleep.’ It was just an amazing ride.”Future race? “We’ll wait now for the San Juan Capistrano (about 1 ¾ miles on turf June 28).”NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Michael Mellen (Bran Jam Stable) of Connecticut; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland.last_img read more


first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 12, 2016)–Last with a quarter mile to run, Kobe’s Back came rolling through the lane to take Saturday’s Grade II, $300,000 San Carlos Stakes by 1 ¼ lengths under Gary Stevens. Owned by Lee and Susan Searing’s CRK Stable and trained by Peter Eurton, favored Kobe’s Back covered the seven furlong San Carlos in 1:22.20.Saturday’s win by the 5-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Flatter followed another last to first thriller in the Grade II, six furlong Palos Verdes Stakes on Feb. 7 and thus represented his first back-to-back stakes triumph in his 18th overall start.“It’s the best he’s ever broken (from the starting gate),” said Stevens. I’ve been aboard him in a couple of workouts in the mornings before his last race and again last week, and there have been a few times that he’s wanted to go after horses in front of him and I’ve let him. What I found out is that he’s not only a great stretch runner, but he’s a good turn runner.“And that wasn’t the case last year. With a little time off and the addition of blinkers, it’s made him a lot more focused…I knew at the half mile pole that they were all in deep water and that’s a pretty good feeling.”Breaking from the far outside in a field of eight older horses, Kobe’s back was off at 2-1 and paid $6.00, $3.60 and $2.60. With the winner’s share of $180,000, he increased his earnings to $952,250.“Did you see how he came out of the gate?” said Eurton. “He broke too fresh, and that was good. He’s just good right now. He’s the best he’s been in so long. Gary hustled him a little bit and then he kind of let him fall back. He’ll probably run next at Churchill Downs on Derby Day (May 7, in the Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs).”Ridden by Tyler Baze, Coastline rallied gamely for the place, finishing a half length in front of Calculator. Off at 13-1, Coastline paid $9.60 and $4.20.Calculator, with Flavien Prat up, completed the all-grey trifecta and paid $2.80 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.79, 45.16 and 1:09.84.last_img read more


first_imgFLAVIEN PRAT, WITH HONORS, SECOND: “She ran great. I wish I was on the outside but she ran great. First time on with her. She was really brave to come back at the end and I felt that she was kind of tired but she just tried hard and did everything right.” TRAINER QUOTES KEITH DESORMEAUX, WITH HONORS, SECOND: “I think it was a complete difference in style here. I concentrated on freshening this horse after her win at Del Mar (Sept. 5 one mile Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes), I didn’t drill her in the mornings. We came up a bit short today, but it puts her in a position to run a big race on Breeders’ Cup day and that’s the goal.“She is going to run on dirt in the Breeders’ Cup unless I completely get overruled by the owners, the jockey, and the conglomerate that runs the show. She’s definitely going to run on dirt.“If you watch the race again, you can see that she wasn’t straining to be up there (on the lead.) For her to set that kind of pace, and to do it under control is a beautiful thing to see and, with a race like that, we don’t have to worry.” RAFAEL BEJARANO, NOTED AND QUOTED, WINNER: “I have to give Bob (Baffert) a lot of credit for this. I have ridden both (of Baffert’s fillies entered in the Chandelier, (the other American Cleopatra) and I started off wanting to ride American Cleopatra because I thought (with her pedigree) she might be the better filly but I don’t think she really wants to go two turns. Baffert told me that he thought I might want to stay on Noted and Quoted because she was going to be prepared to run the mile and a sixteenth. And, he was right. American Cleopatra was right next to me but Stewart (Elliott, on American Cleopatra) didn’t have enough horse and mine was the better horse today.” JOCKEY QUOTES BOB BAFFERT, NOTED AND QUOTED, WINNER: “When they turned for home, I thought, ‘That’s a good filly (With Honors) that ran second.’ I have a lot of respect for her. (Noted and Quoted) is a very slight filly. I don’t have to do a lot with her, but the fact that she’s already proved she can go two turns, that’s what we were trying to find out with her. I’m pretty proud of her effort, because she ran against a really great filly.” NOTES: The winning owner is Peter Fluor of Houston who races as Speedway Stable, LLC..-30-last_img read more
