T&T company launches liquefied natural gas in Guyana

by ,

first_img…DDL reportedly using product for 15% of its power gridAhead of Guyana’s official start date for oil production in 2020, local companies that utilise vast amounts of energy to facilitate operations are actively being encouraged to pursue energy sources that burn at a cleaner rate and have less impact on the environment. It is against these considerations that the Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) partnered with Trinidadian-based company ICON LNG toICON President and Chief Financial Officer, John Thompson told the gathering at Cara Lodge that natural gas is a safe and natural fuelprovide the beverage giant with natural gas supply on a pilot programme for six months.ICON specialises in providing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as an alternative to replace diesel, gasoline and heavy oil fuel. The company highlighted that the gas is lighter and safer to transport than propane gas.At the launch at Cara Lodge Hotel on Wednesday, DDL Chairman Komal Samaroo announced that the project’s technical feasibility has already been proven and noted that for the next few months, DDL will conduct financial and economic evaluation of the programme which will assess its viability. Samaroo stressed that with power taking up the second highest cost, the company saw it fit to select natural gas “to tackle” the cost that power rakes up as DDL operates on a 24-hour basis.“DDL believes in the future of natural gas as a form of reliable energy which will help pilot Guyana’s prosperity… our country is poised for greater economic buoyancy with the oil sector,” the DDL Chairman noted.“Given Guyana’s quest for clean energy, this project resonates very well with national policy,” he added.While ICON and DDL officials were reluctant to go into financial arrangements, Guyana Times was told that DDL is currently running on 15 per cent natural gas capacity for a few hours a day. It was pointed out that once ICON’s power is switched off; DDL reverts to using diesel for much of its capacity. During the launch, the company’s Chairman had however reminded that DDL produces steam through its methane gas plant.ICON President and Chief Financial Officer, John Thompson said the pilot programme with DDL is still in the initial stages. The gas will be obtained from Trinidad and in the next six months, six 20-foot containers will be shipped and it will last for 90 days. Thompson told stakeholders that the company has been around for three years and is active in regional markets such as St Lucia and Barbados. The ICON President added that natural gas is a “safe, natural fuel” which emits 30-40 per cent less Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere.Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Energy Agency, in brief remarks, told the gathering that he has been encouraging the Guyana Power and Light to seek alternative forms of energy. Guyana Times understands that the National Milling Company of Guyana and the Beharry Group have expressed interest in utilising natural gas as an alternative means of energy use.

NO SERVICES WILL BE LOST AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL AFTER FLOODING

by ,

first_imgAll services provided by Letterkenny General Hospital prior to last month’s flooding disaster will be fully restored.That was the message from Deputy Joe McHugh following discussions at the hospital yesterday afternoon with Bill Maher, Chief Executive of HSE West.“I can confirm today that all services previously provided at Letterkenny General Hospital are to be restored as they were before last month’s flash flooding of the hospital. “This was confirmed to me at a meeting in the hospital yesterday with Mr Bill Maher, CEO of HSE West, and with Seán Murphy, Manager of Letterkenny General Hospital. It has also been confirmed that the planned new endoscopy unit, funding for which was announced in early July, will be put in place as intended prior to the flooding,” said the Fine Gael TD.Deputy McHugh at the hospital with Health Minister James ReillyThe Donegal Deputy said he is confident in the capabilities of hospital management, staff, patients and the community to overcome the enormous challenges that face us over the next nine months.“The task for Letterkenny General Hospital is to deliver high quality health services at a site that will be under refurbishment. This will involve unavoidable disruption for patients and staff, which must be minimised.“I know from speaking with people working in the hospital and from speaking with people in the community, that they do not want a rushed job. It is important that the refurbished building will be fit for purpose, and that last month’s disaster will never happen again. “This work is already underway with design, engineering and architectural teams being appointed. It is also encouraging that local sub-contractors are working on the construction of temporary accommodation for A&E services at the hospital, a number of whom I met at the hospital yesterday,” he added.The Carrigart-based politician also made the point very strongly that the people of Donegal want answers as to why the hospital flooded last month.He said there must be be full accountability and disclosure and that he awaits the independent engineer’s professional assessment.“I also raised public concerns about kitchen services at the hospital. HSE Management assures me that a new state-of-the-art kitchen will be fully constructed.“I am in continuous contact with the Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly TD, about the hospital. Minister Reilly has visited Letterkenny General Hospital twice since last month’s disaster, and he is monitoring the situation closely. “It is encouraging for the people of Donegal that existing services will be restored and secured, and that plans to roll out further additional services remain in place.”NO SERVICES WILL BE LOST AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL AFTER FLOODING was last modified: August 16th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:deputy joe mchughLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more

PAUL DURCAN REVEALS HOW HE GOT OVER ‘THAT’ MISTAKE IN LAST YEAR’S ALL-IRELAND FINAL

by ,

first_imgGAA: Donegal star Paul Durcan has candidly spoke about his error in last year’s All-Ireland Final defeat to Kerry.Paul DurcanDurcan was left devastated by his mistake and contemplated walking away from the game he loves.In a candid interview with BALLS.ie – Durcan revealed how it was the support of the people around him that really helped him to get over the pain of his error. He praised the role of Donegal manager Rory Gallagher who he said ultimately convinced him to return to the squad ahead of the 2015 season.Durcan was speaking on a podcast called ‘The Hard Shoulder’ and vividly recalls the moment he botched his kickout.Durcan said, “I remember it so well, my heel didn’t hit the ground and the ball didn’t go in the direction it was supposed to.“He (Donaghey) got it and clinically dispatched it to the back of the net. “It’s amazing how such a simple mistake can cause you so much pain, but thankfully with the support of those around me I slowly started to get over it.“I did contemplate walking away but deep down I knew I couldn’t finish my Donegal career in them circumstances.“Rory was very good too. He was in touch with me since he got the job. I was kind of wondering would I go back to it and he convinced me.“And to be honest I think I had my best year for Donegal this year.Durcan is a huge fans favourite with Donegal and supporters are hoping he will return for the 2016 season. Durcan has recently moved to Qatar and that seemed to signal the end of his Donegal career.However, Durcan has dismissed those suggestions and has claimed he will return for the Ulster SFC next May.PAUL DURCAN REVEALS HOW HE GOT OVER ‘THAT’ MISTAKE IN LAST YEAR’S ALL-IRELAND FINAL was last modified: August 25th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGAAnewsPaul DurcanSportlast_img read more

Donegal TD calls for new apprenticeship schemes to catch up with the UK

by ,

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher Leas-Cheann Comhairle has urged the Government to accelerate the number and range of apprenticeship schemes available to young people. Deputy Gallagher has said the entire apprenticeship programme has ground to a halt over the past 6 years. He stated the current model of apprenticeship is no longer fit for purpose and called for a wider and more diverse range of choices to meet the needs of the economy moving forward.Pat the Cope expressed concern about Ireland’s ability to compete with Britain in a post-Brexit era: “because of the scale and diversity of apprenticeships on offer in the UK, there simply is no comparison between the choices in the UK system of apprenticeships than what is on offer in this country,” he said. He said the outstanding apprentices who represented Ireland in the WorldSkills event in Abu Dhabi in recent days are testament to the impact apprentices can have among the Irish labour force.Pat the Cope said: “Minister Halligan must move faster to introduce new opportunities and occupations if we are to catch up with our competitors and help address skills shortages in key areas. “The latest round of proposals was sent to the Apprenticeship Council on September 1st – and it is essential that they are considered as soon as possible. “School-leavers should have access to a much greater range of career options, but this Government has come late to the table in terms of recognising the potential of apprenticeship schemes.”Pat the Cope stated: “Apprenticeships must also be marketed as true and equivalent alternatives to college places for many, as it is correct to state college life does not suit every individual.“ Apprenticeships are a mechanism for achieving the maximum potential of every individual – providing them with an opportunity to find their talents, gifts and niche in life. “I would expect all Public bodies such as the HSE, RTÉ, ESB, local authorities and State departments would also create their own apprenticeships, in partnership with relevant education providers.”“Irish-resident companies, which already offer apprenticeships in the UK, could replicate these models in Ireland, as could some of the global tech firms based here.  Other companies involved in the airline, media, retail, public relations, pharmaceutical, child and social care sectors should also be encouraged to run relevant apprenticeships. “We need to see the active promotion of apprenticeship programmes through public information campaigns.  This would help mobilise support among potential employers, education providers and apprentices,” concluded Pat the CopeDonegal TD calls for new apprenticeship schemes to catch up with the UK was last modified: October 31st, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:apprenticeshipPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more

Taxes on farmland dropping steadily

by ,

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Taxes, on average, are going down for owners of farmland across Ohio and are expected to decline at an even faster rate beginning in 2020, a study by researchers with The Ohio State University shows.The average value of agricultural land across the state has dropped by a third since a recent change in how the state calculates taxes for farmland owners, according to a study by Robert Dinterman and Ani Katchova, two agricultural economists with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).Starting in 2020, farmland values in the state likely will drop by another one-third, said Dinterman, a postdoctoral researcher with CFAES. With values going down, owners of agricultural land in the state should see similar declines in their taxes.“Farmers, I would think, would be pretty pleased to see their taxes going down,” Dinterman said.2017 was the first year some owners of agricultural land in Ohio saw a break in taxes. Taxes on agricultural land are based on the state’s assessment of the value of the land, which is done every three years at different times across the state. Ohio farmland is valued not based on what it would sell for on the open market, but on the income it is expected to generate from growing crops on that land.The Ohio legislature in 2017 approved changing the law on how agricultural land would be valued for tax purposes.In 2016, before the change was in place, the average value of agricultural land in the state was $1,310 per acre, according to the results of the study by Dinterman and Katchova. This year, the value decreased to $875 per acre.Agricultural land values and the corresponding taxes paid on that land will continue to decline at an even faster rate, Dinterman said. Steeper decreases in taxes will be seen, on average, because the changes to the way the farmland is assessed have been phased in between 2017 and 2019. Small changes were made each year to avoid a sudden and dramatic drop in tax revenue, Dinterman said.But in 2020, the phase-in will end. That’s why during that year, Ohio farmland owners should see another one-third drop in the assessed value of their land, compared to the previous year, and similar declines in their taxes, Dinterman said.The average tax paid across the state was about $36 per acre of farmland in 2016. That dropped to around $31 in 2017, Dinterman said. By 2020, the average likely will be around $25 per acre, which would match the rate paid in 2011, he said.The decrease in revenues funneling into the state from agricultural land could mean an increase in taxes on homes and farm buildings in some counties, particularly rural counties, Dinterman said.“Counties with a lot of farmland may have to make adjustments in their tax rates to make up the difference,” he said.The value of farmland in Ohio is determined based on a number of factors including the yields and crop income that land generates. The declines are due in part to drops in the price of corn and soybeans, the two major crops grown in Ohio.“I think farmers would almost certainly trade having a higher tax bill for higher revenues right now,” said Katchova, associate professor and chair of the farm income enhancement program in the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics in CFAES.When taxes go up on farmland, owners of that land pass on part of that burden by raising the rent for tenants using that farmland, Katchova said. For every dollar of property taxes a landowner pays, 30 to 40 cents of that are passed to the tenant in the form of higher rent, she said, citing the results of a different recent study that she and Dinterman did.Even though taxes on agricultural land are going down, that likely won’t trigger a decline in rates on renting that land, Katchova said.“Rent doesn’t usually go down nearly as much as it goes up,” she said.last_img read more
