World’s Largest Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Departs Samsung Heavy Industries

The world’s largest Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel left the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea under tow on Tuesday for its voyage to Nigeria.

The Egina    FPSO was ordered by Total in 2013 for a total investment $3 billion covering the entire engineering, procurement, construction, transport, and commissioning phases of the project.

The 60,000 ton vessel will be moored at the Egina oil field some 200 km off the coast of Nigeria and has a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels. The massive facility measures in at 330 meters long by 61 meters in breadth and 34 meters tall.

The offshore oil field is one of the flagship ultra-deepwater projects in Total’s portfolio. The field consists of a total of 44 subsea wells that will be connected to the FPSO using umbilicals and risers.

Once on stream, the field will have a production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day, with the Egina boasting     2.3 million barrels of storage capacity.

Tuesday’s departure of the gigantic floater marks the latest of three offshore mega-projects completed by SHI this year. In April, SHI delivered the Ichthy’s CPF, the world’s largest floating gas processing facility. The delivery was followed by the sail-away of the Prelude FLNG, touted as the largest offshore structure ever constructed, this past June.

SHI says Egina’s voyage to Nigeria will take about 3 months. From there, the installation of the remaining topside modules and commissioning will be carried out by a local partner of SHI, with delivery scheduled for for the second half of 2018.

Marine Sanctuaries: The Secret Report the White House Doesn’t Want You to Read

Nov. 02, 2017 12:28PM EST

By Pete Stauffer

SNIPPET:

It's a simple choice, really. Do we want our National Marine Sanctuaries to be used for recreation, education, fishing and ecological protection? Or do we want to hand these ocean gems over the oil and gas industry so they can expand offshore drilling off our coasts?

Is Trump's EPA The Environmental Pollution Agency ??? :P(w/John O'Grady)

Donald Trump's EPA is not protecting the environment instead it protects the interest of corporations, polluters and bad guys who like to loot and plunder.

TransCanada Keystone pipeline leaks 795,000 litres of crude oil in South Dakota

CALGARY — TransCanada Corp. said its Keystone pipeline has leaked an estimated 795,000 litres of oil in Marshall County, S.D. just days before Nebraska is set to decide the fate of its Keystone XL pipeline

The company (TSX:TRP) said its crews shut down the Keystone pipeline system early this morning between Hardisty, Alta. to Cushing, Okla, and a line to Patoka, Ill. and that the line is expected to remain shut while it responds to the spill.

The leak, which it said happened about 35 kilometres south of its Ludden pump station on a right-of-way, comes as Nebraska Public Service Commission is set to vote on the Keystone XL project on Nov. 20 to clear the last major regulatory hurdle for the $8 billion project.

Opponents of Keystone XL say the pipeline would pass through the Sandhills, an ecologically fragile region of grass-covered sand dunes, and would cross the land of farmers and ranchers who don’t want it.

“Just days before the Nebraska Public Service Commissions decides on whether to approve Keystone XL we get a painful reminder of why no one wants a pipeline over their water supply,” said Greenpeace campaigner Mike Hudema.

The Sierra Club was also quick to condemn the spill, urging the commission not to vote for the project.

“We’ve always said it’s not a question of whether a pipeline will spill, but when, and today TransCanada is making our case for us,” said campaign director Kelly Martin.

The pipeline would transport oilsands oil from Alberta through Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines that feed Texas Gulf Coast refineries.

Excellent collection of references!

They all add up to indisputable evidence of our devastating Mammon worshipping, multi-species extinction trajectory. :(  Bertrand Russell was right.


Quote
Organic life, we are told, has developed gradually from the protozoon to the philosopher, and this development, we are assured, is indubitably an advance. Unfortunately it is the philosopher, not the protozoon, who gives us this assurance.  Bertrand Russell



The Annihilation of Nature : Human Extinction of Birds and Mammals

By (author)  Gerardo Ceballos , By (author)  Anne H. Ehrlich , By (author)  Paul R. Ehrlich
 
Gerardo Ceballos, Anne H. Ehrlich, and Paul R. Ehrlich serve as witnesses in this trial of human neglect, where the charge is the massive and escalating assault on living things. Nature is being annihilated, not only because of the human population explosion, but also as a result of massive commercial endeavors and public apathy.

Despite the well-intentioned work of conservation organizations and governments, the authors warn us that not enough is being done and time is short for the most vulnerable of the world's wild birds and mammals. Thousands of populations have already disappeared, other populations are dwindling daily, and soon our descendants may live in a world containing but a minuscule fraction of the birds and mammals we know today.

The Annihilation of Nature is a clarion call for engagement and action. These outspoken scientists urge everyone who cares about nature to become personally connected to the victims of our inadequate conservation efforts and demand that restoration replace destruction. Only then will we have any hope of preventing the worst-case scenario of the sixth mass extinction.

I have removed the disinformation posted here by K-Dog questioning the serious scientific studies (there are MANY studies confirming CO2 will continue to grievously heat the atmosphere for centuries even if we stopped burning fossl fuels today) predicting increased atmospheric heating for centuries after we stop burning fossil fuels.

This is just one of them:
Quote
Even if carbon dioxide emissions came to a sudden halt, the carbon dioxide already in Earth’s atmosphere could continue to warm our planet for hundreds of years, according to Princeton University-led research published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

If he has no interest in objective scientific inquiry, he has no business posting here on that issue. K-Dog is in denial of the grievous harm fossil fuels do to our planet. He will not even acknowledge the empirical data from the following web site (available 24/7) that shows how much pollutants are in our atmosphere.

For example, because of the fires in the Los Angelos Area, parts of the atmosphere there have over 469 PPM of CO2.  :(  :P
https://earth.nullschool....,3000/loc=-119.558,33.721

While you are there, don't miss the CO levels. They are OFF THE CHARTS!
https://earth.nullschool....,3000/loc=-119.558,33.721


If K-Dog wants to wallow in la la land, that's his business. I am done trying to get him to think logically and objectively in regard to Catastrophic Climate Change causes.

All that said, K-Dog can be quite objective and logical when it comes to Cannabis. He and I are on the same page in that area. ;D

Big Pharma Tries to Monopolize CBD Oil Market

December 11, 2017 • 129,805 views

Story at-a-glance

֍ The cannabinoids in cannabis — cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — work by way of naturally-occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body

֍ The fact that your body is replete with cannabinoid receptors, key to so many biological functions, is why there's such enormous medical potential for cannabis

֍ South Dakota has rescheduled CBD from a Schedule I to a Schedule IV substance by excluding it from the definition of marijuana

֍ GW Pharmaceuticals failed in its efforts to restrict Schedule IV classification to FDA approved CBD products only, which prevented the company from creating a monopoly in South Dakota

֍ The legal status of CBD oil as a nutritional supplement is now threatened by drug companies seeking FDA approval for CBD-containing drugs
