US LNG exports decline on week to 5 cargoes

first_imgCheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana, currently the only such a facility to export US shale gas overseas, has sent out less cargoes in the week ending February 14 as compared to the previous week.Five LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 17.2 billion cubic feet (Bcf) have departed the plant since Wednesday last week, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in its weekly natural gas report.This compares to six LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 22.6 Bcf in the week before.One tanker with a capacity of 3.8 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday.The natural gas feedstock to the Sabine Pass terminal averaged 3.2 Bcf/d during the report week as compared to 3.3 Bcf/d in the prior week.To remind, federal safety regulators have on February 8 instructed Cheniere to remove from service two of five LNG storage tanks at its Sabine Pass terminal following a gas leak last month.Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility is the first liquefaction and export facility and currently the only such facility to ship U.S. shale gas overseas. The plant will be soon joined by Dominion’s Cove Point facility that is expected to ship its first cargo in March.There are four 0.6-Bcfd liquefaction trains operating at Sabine Pass, and a fifth is under construction and expected to enter service in mid-2019. Cheniere also plans to start its Corpus Christi plant next year. LNG World News Stafflast_img read more

FIFA Ranking: Eagles fail to move up log, remain 3rd in Africa

first_imgNigeria’s Super Eagles did not make any move in the monthly Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) rankings released by the world football governing body on Thursday, February 20.Advertisement Senegal’s Teranga Lions retained their spot as the best playing nation in the continent and 20th in the world, but are closely trailed by Tunisia’s Cathage Eagles, who are placed 27th.Algeria’s Desert Foxes occupy the 35th position in the world.Interestinly, Morocco’s Atlas Lions, despite not dropping a spot are 43rd on the og to complete Africa’s top five playing nations.Meanwhile, Belgium stay top as Palestine make gains after very few matches have been played on the international front in the first World Ranking of 2020.At the last count, only 15 friendlies have taken place since the last ranking update in December – including two games in late 2019 – so it is little surprise that the top 20 remains unchanged with Belgium, France and Brazil still making up the top three.Some minor movement in the top 50 sees both Wales (23rd, down 1) and Paraguay (41st, down 1) fall a spot, while Ghana’s Black Stars (46th, up 1) rise ever so slightly. The three-time African champions remain rooted on the 31st spot in the world and third in Africa.

A frustrated mayor, a frustrated voting public…

first_imgAnalysis by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — It is hard to blame Mayor Shelly Hansel for feeling a little frustrated after last Tuesday’s town hall meeting in Wellington. The meeting is one she tries to have every month to allow citizen input and to ask questions. She heard a lot of criticism, hand wringing and rumors of $12 million missing from the city coffers. There were also complaints later about the meeting itself, as some alleged it may have violated the open meetings rules since a majority of council members were there.At the same time people complained about the city not being open, and even city officials wondered how they can get information out to the public in a more effective manner.It is perhaps a reflection of the general mistrust of government that pervades our society these days. Government is not perfect, but very few people are either. Hansel expressed frustration for the “sky is falling” mentality that seems to pervade the city at times.“You cannot just say ‘Wellington sucks,’ get pouty and throw your arms up and quit,” she told the group at the town hall meeting.  “I am glad you are here. It shows you care. But you need to be involved in the process.”Before the meeting even began Hansel talked with the audience and media representatives about the meeting itself. Council members were there, though there was not a majority until after the meeting started. At the meeting no one objected to city council members being there and the general consensus was that there was no problem. They did check with their attorney, and were told that if no council members spoke, it was not a violation of the open meetings rules.That goes along with what the bylaws set by the Kansas State Attorney General’s Office. According to the law, municipal board members – even a majority – may attend public functions. It says they must not discuss city business privately. They did discuss some early on by answering questions, but they never discussed anything privately or between themselves. Later, Hansel reported to Sumner Newscow that the city has turned itself in to the Attorney General’s office as a precautionary measure to make sure no open meeting law act is violated.Hansel again explained the alleged missing money, which was at first rumored to be just over $1 million — a figure which has bloomed to $12 million as of last week. That all came about because of a statement by city financial advisor John Haas, who explained that their reserves had dropped to a level that could affect the city bond ratings.He said he “did not know” where the money had gone, and that led some to think there was money missing.Hansel noted this has been explained many times, but she explained it again anyway. It is not that the money cannot be accounted for, but if you put it into a general fund, it is impossible to say what an individual dollar went for. Hansel noted that all the money has been accounted. “I was a reporter for 15 years. If there was something shady going on I would be calling people,” Hansel said. “We may not have communicated it as well, but I do not feel there was anything done wrong.”Also at the meeting people objected to repairs being made at Worden Park’s parking lot. It is true not everyone will use that parking lot, and it is going to cost the city $75,000.However, Hansel said it is a quality of life issue and the city has a chance to save money by doing it now.She wants to see the city progress.“You could sit here and spend no money and do nothing and problems would get worse,” she said.Hansel agreed that the city has been losing population, and that means the tax base has shrunk, making paying for things more difficult.She wants to find out what to do in order to reverse that trend, to take positive action.Hansel hopes to continue holding town hall meetings, and she also hopes the public will get more involved.Follow us on Twitter.

Thank you for your input. +11 Vote up Vote down Ray · 251 weeks ago It would make more sense for the City Manager to answer questions reference where the money went. Not the mayor. The mayor is an elected face that works part time at best and should not be the voice of the city managers office. Why us it that the city manager at important times in meetings seems confused and defers questions to Shane Shields. Should the buck not stop with him for answers. Love or hate Gus Collins he would stand and take the heat and be leading the charge to fix a situation. Roy is no leader and hides behind many at city hall and the council. We should never see a display where the mayor calls out a former city council person in a town hall meeting. It appears like finger pointing and unprofessional. Isn’t that what your saying the public is being right now James. I agree we need to come together but sometimes the voice of Wellington needs to say less and listen more. Report Reply 0 replies · active 251 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down jeff · 251 weeks ago Trust is something we earn. It is not bestowed on anyone. Right now, we have a serious trust situation. The “veil of secrecy” and “executive sessions” and in-your-face raising of rates and constantly defending the actions to a beleaguered, cash-strapped citizenry just exacerbates it. Trying to defend or honey-coat it is insulting.

Thanks for going out of your way to only speak to the mayor, James. Also, the mayor said the city turned itself in to the state because of the meeting violation last week, and you said there was no violation? Seems like there might have been a violation if they felt they needed to turn themselves in. Maybe checking with the city attorney or the attorney general would be a good idea? But, that would require some effort, right? It seems to me that James Jordan has shown that he might not be the guy to write about the happenings at the city. Report Reply 0 replies · active 251 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down michelle · 251 weeks ago If all the money is supposible all accountable then why can’t the city explain where it went we all know that most of the money if not has help bail out hospital for years and that we people don’t get our bills paid for us and if we are late its a late feed added and we are lucky if we get extion on our bill for a week after due date that ain’t fair to this city but yet everyone wants this town to grow well its not going if things keep on the raise this town will be a ghost town which is getting that way now Report Reply 3 replies · active 251 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down randy · 251 weeks ago you are so right Michelle, All the money should be accounted for, but they say that they can actually tells us where it went except the general fund. Interesting, yes wellington will be a ghost town in 3-5 yrs . And to spend 75,000 for warden park, but nothing to sellars park is a slap in the face to wellington. Im sure that 75,000 would build a nice locker room for football team and or other teams at sellars park. But that makes too much since to improve a traditional park then a park that’s used 3 months of the yr. Report Reply -1 Vote up Vote down brenda · 251 weeks ago so they claim its all accounted for in the general fund but okay that means it could of been used for personal purposes and nobody knows because it wasn’t accounted for after transition of the money. Report Reply +3 Vote up Vote down Larry · 251 weeks ago Building locker rooms for the school district is not the responsibility of the city. I am sure that if they would have done that several of you would have be complaining that they city shouldn’t not have done that. The citizens elect the people that they want to run the city and good or bad that is what you did, and yet you are not even willing to give them a chance to do it. Also a note to everyone on here, Wellington is not the only town or city that is having problems. they all do. Trust me on this, I would trade my utilities bills for yours any day and I would be very happy and you would be shocked even more than you are now.
