Report: Fire Briefly Halts Prelude FLNG Construction at Geoje

first_imgThe construction works on the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project resumed immediately after a small fire which occurred at the site in Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje shipyard, South Korea, where the vessel is being built, according to a spokesperson from the oil and gas giant Shell.“Shell can confirm there was an incident on the Prelude construction site” which led to a small fire, the spokesperson said, adding that emergency response processes were activated effectively as per plan.The cause of the incident is being investigated.“Two people received medical treatment for minor smoke inhalation – they were fit to return to work the next day,” the spokesperson said.Shell Prelude FLNG platform, the world’s largest offshore facility ever constructed, will be towed over 3,000 nautical miles from Geoje to Australia once constructed.There, the 488 metres long and 74 metres wide FLNG facility will be positioned before it begins production at the Prelude gas field in the Browse LNG Basin, 200km off the northwest coast.The Shell Prelude FLNG facility features a fully loaded displacement capacity of about 600,000 tons, and has around 260,000 tonnes of steel in the facility alone.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

The unavoidable impression is of a department which is being run on the hoof

first_imgMorale is low at the Ministry of Justice and its agencies, with staff expressing little faith in senior managers. And no wonder. In a climate of deep cuts, a bad case of administrative atrophy appears to have set in. In February alone we have reported on the ‘totally chaotic’ advent of the Salford civil claims centre (pictured), while complaints continued to pour in about the mystifying tardiness of the LSC in paying solicitors. Millions are being spent sweeping the tumbleweed from empty courts. And now we have the fiasco of the ‘framework agreement’ for interpreting – recently farmed out to Capita, an outsourcer with a distinctly mixed track record. The MoJ didn’t see fit to mention when trumpeting the deal that Capita had acquired Applied Language Solutions – a telling omission. Interpreters appalled by ALS’s pay policy may not be placated to learn that Capita’s chief executive has banked remuneration averaging £70,000 a week in recent years. Surely the Petty France spinners ought to have seen this coming. ALS’s own track record has proved equally patchy, after all. Savings must be made, of course. But given also the recent, snap decisions to postpone landmark legal aid and civil litigation reforms, the unavoidable impression is of a major government department that is being run on the hoof. It must be an unsettling place to work.last_img read more

Enhanced Safety For Health & Social Care Staff

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInStaff who work in specialist cancer services, or provide long-term care for the elderly, as well as staff working in residential mental health, will be offered weekly coronavirus (COVID-19) testing from 8 July.This builds on the routine testing currently offered to care home staff, and aims to protect NHS staff and patients by reducing the spread of the virus in hospitals and other healthcare settings.In addition, from June 29 all staff in hospitals and care home who interact with patients or residents will be required to wear a medical face mask throughout their shift. Anyone entering care homes and hospitals will also be asked to wear a face covering throughout. Face coverings will also be required when attending a hospital appointment.Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) will also restart its inspection programme of hospitals and services by the end of June.The measures are part of updated guidance to further strengthen the safety of staff and patients as Scotland’s NHS begins restarting community and hospital services that have been paused due to the pandemic.Health Secretary Jeane Freeman said:“Throughout the pandemic NHS Scotland has remained open, delivering emergency services and vital care. As the NHS prepares to safely resume more services, it is vitally important that we continue with rigorous infection prevention and control practices to minimise the spread of the virus in any health and social care setting, and are aligned with the growing evidence on this virus and how it is transmitted.“I am bringing forward a range of actions to strengthen these practices, in line with advice from clinical experts. This includes regular testing of all hospital staff working in specialist cancer services, as well as those who provide long-term care for the elderly, and those working in long-stay mental health facilities.  “This new guidance will also ensure all staff in hospitals and care homes who interact with patients or residents will be required to wear a medical face mask throughout their shift – for the protection of those they care for, their colleagues and themselves.“Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) paused their inspection work in March to allow local infection prevention and control teams to concentrate on tackling the virus. However, the time is now right for inspections to resume. The Chief Nursing Officer has asked HIS to develop plans to take this forward safely, and we expect inspections to re-start at the end of June.”BackgroundYou can read more about the face mask guidance onlineMore can be read about Health Improvement Scotland online.Guidance on the use of face masks and face coverings has been developed following consultation with CoSLA, Health Boards, Scottish Care and Trades Unions and a range of other interested parties.last_img read more

The water is a dark grey color with a dank smell coming from the area of high clay concentration.At the beginning of the year, it was decided that the Brownsville channel had too much sand and the beaches needed more. The solution was to dredge the channel and recycle the sand through the beach nourishment project, but with the sand came mass quantities of clay.After extensive clearing work by the Army Corps of Engineers, which headed up the project, residents and visitors still believe that more needs to be done to beautify the beach for the upcoming tourist season.Daniela Gomez, 18, was walking along the beach with her friend and expressed dissatisfaction with the presence of clay on the shore-line. “It looks nasty and it’s going to end up bringing a bad (reputation) with the summer vacationers,” Gomez said.For more on this story, pick up a copy of the May 19 edition of the Port Isabel South Padre Press or check out our E-edition by clicking here.last_img read more
