Syn-depositional deformation in a Cretaceous succession, James Ross Island, Antarctica. Evidence from vitrinite reflectivity

first_imgA detailed vitrinite reflectivity study has been made through the Cretaceous sedimentary rocks of northwest James Ross Island, Antarctica. The results show that a progressive increase in reflectivity does not occur with depth and that values (0.45 %) from the base of the succession are lower than expected for the sequence as described by previous authors. Using a synthesis of sedimentological and stratigraphic information, the sequence is reinterpreted as an apparent monoclinal syncline, strongly influenced by syndepositional tectonics, with a thickness appreciably less than previously described.last_img

DOE extends additional LNG export authorizations through 2050

first_imgThe term extensions issued include Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi LNG export terminals, operating in Louisiana and Texas, respectively The actions follow seven LNG export term extensions issued last week. (Credit: Raw2Jpeg from Pixabay) The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) extended the terms of three long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) export authorizations through 2050. Today’s actions follow seven LNG export term extensions issued last week pursuant to an export term policy statement DOE finalized in July.DOE has received a strong positive response to the term extension policy, and has now granted ten applications for LNG export term extensions through 2050.The term extensions issued include Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi LNG export terminals, operating in Louisiana and Texas, respectively, and Sempra Energy’s Port Arthur LNG project proposed for Port Arthur, Texas. These issuances extend each project’s long-term LNG export authorization to both free trade and non-free trade agreement (non-FTA) countries through December 31, 2050.“The Trump Administration understands the importance of securing American energy jobs and creating opportunities for growth in the energy sector,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. “The development of natural gas in the United States provides tens of thousands of jobs and leads to the investment of tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure development. This policy will sustain these long-term benefits.”The United States is among the top three global exporters of LNG, and its operating export capacity is expected to increase by more than 50% by the end of 2025.“DOE’s extended export term policy provides assurances to industry and the millions of energy jobs that it supports, that this Administration values U.S. LNG as a reliable and abundant resource,” said Deputy Secretary Mark W. Menezes. “The continued success of U.S. LNG exports, especially for power production in European and Asian markets, is helping our friends and allies meet their global emissions reduction goals, while supporting U.S. energy sector workers and infrastructure investments across the country.”Through the term extension applications granted today, long-term LNG export authorizations with export terms through 2050 are now held by Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC, Cheniere Marketing, LLC and Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC, and Port Arthur LNG, LLC.

ECFiber: Second round of funding raises $340,000

first_imgAfter connecting its first customer two days before Hurricane Irene struck, ECFiber continues to add new customers along its Phase I route through Bethel, Royalton and Barnard. The second closing of local finance at the beginning of December raised $340,000. This allows ECFiber to build additional miles in Barnard and Royalton and adjacent roads in Tunbridge, Pomfret and Sharon. Once that construction is completed in the summer of 2012, ECFiber expects to have passed approximately 60-65 percent of Barnard households. ECFiber is using an innovative funding method to extend its network, supported by local citizens who lend funds that enable build-out to local neighborhoods within and across member towns. Citizens who invest as little as $2,500 allow ECFiber to reach all households along designated routes. ECFiber determines where it will build by choosing routes that reach the greatest number of unserved businesses and households, which are then connected to ECFiber’s state-of-the-art fiber-optic service. ECFiber is committed to serving 100 percent of the households, businesses and civic institutions in the 23 member towns. It is extending its network in phases, dependent on the amount of local funding it is able to raise. 12/20/2011last_img read more

Bulgaria to extradite drug lord with ties to Latin America

first_imgBy Dialogo June 21, 2012 SOFIA, Bulgaria — A Bulgarian court ordered on June 20 the extradition of suspected drug lord Evelin Banev to Italy, where he is wanted for allegedly masterminding a huge cocaine-smuggling ring from Latin America to Europe. Banev, also known as “Brendo,” is wanted by the Italian authorities as part of an international gang allegedly responsible for trafficking as much as 40 tons of cocaine from Latin America to Europe between 2004 and 2007. A five-year Italian investigation concluded in May found that a Bulgarian gang based in Milan, Italy and Alicante, Spain was supplying the ’Ndrangheta with cocaine from Latin America, the interior ministry said. Bulgarian traffickers transported the drugs by plane and onboard Italian ships, allegedly paid for by Banev. The ships and planes ran between islands in the Caribbean and Venezuela to ports in Spain and the Portuguese island of Madeira. [AFP, 20/06/2012; (Bulgaria), 20/06/2012]last_img read more
