Steelhead LNG and Seven Generations Energy Ltd. team up to strengthen LNG market

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – A new agreement has been announced today between Steelhead LNG and Seven Generations Energy Ltd that is giving the two companies as well as Aboriginal Groups and communities a look at development of new midstream infrastructure to support Steelhead LNG’s proposed natural gas liquefaction and export projects on Vancouver Island.The release states the arrangement also includes Seven Generations buying a minority interest in Steelhead LNG. The arrangement could provide new markets for Seven Generations’ production and increased certainty of natural gas supply for Steelhead LNG.“This arrangement with Seven Generations creates an opportunity, in the current price environment, for a liquefied natural gas solution from well-head to customer that’s uniquely led by Canadian companies,” said Steelhead LNG Chief Executive Officer Nigel Kuzemko. “Our shared focus on engaging early and often with Aboriginal groups and communities, combined with our collective commitment to produce and deliver low cost, low emissions Canadian natural gas, positions each company to succeed in expanding Canada’s exports of clean-burning natural gas to Asian markets.”Rich Coleman, BC Minister of Natural Gas Development, says this will benefit all Canadians.“This partnership formed by Steelhead LNG and Seven Generations Energy is an example of Canadian companies working together in innovative ways to deliver Western Canadian natural gas to market, which benefits not only British Columbians and Albertans, but all Canadians. Their commitment to work with First Nations and communities in a collaborative manner, while at the same time support British Columbia’s role as a leader in progressing global climate change objectives, will contribute to the success of these projects. While LNG markets are challenging at the moment, with projects like these and others under development, British Columbia will be exceptionally well-positioned to become a leading supplier of LNG to Asian markets in the coming years.”- Advertisement -In the press release, it states Steelhead and 7G believe that helping countries shift away from GHG-intensive energy should be a top priority.Advertisementlast_img read more

Computers put stars in sky-watchers’ eyes

first_imgWhen Caitlin Dailey and Lorie Lewis signed up for an astronomy lab at California State University, Northridge, they assumed they would be spending a lot of time outdoors, scanning the night sky. Instead, they spent one recent class in the university’s new $125,000 “smart lab,” poring over computerized images of the moon and calculating the age of the lunar craters. Students say the small-screen preview helps them understand what they view later through a telescope. “It makes it a lot easier,” said Dailey, 21, of Northridge, who plans to go into public relations. “When you look at the night sky, you know what you’re looking at.” The smart lab that debuted this semester in Eucalyptus Hall features 24 computer stations, with 24 more on order. TheSky6 software lets students simulate the astronomical sky anywhere in the world and also provides access to other kinds of data – such as 25 years worth of information on the sun’s magnetic fields.

David Osorio, 27, of Sylmar, a graduate teaching assistant. Students can study the role of errors in astronomical measurements and even how to convert telescope observations to physical quantities, such as wavelength and velocity. They also do field observations, in addition to the in-class assignments. About 1,000 students take astronomy courses each semester at CSUN. For some, it’s the first steps toward a doctorate and careers as astronomers or astrophysicists. For many others, it’s a way to fulfill their science requirement for graduation. But even if the students don’t go on to work for NASA, officials say the class can serve as a good introduction to the sciences, since astronomy combines physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology and techniques from engineering and computer science. “I’m not a science person,” said Lewis, who plans to go into marketing and apparel design. “I thought you would have to know something (about science beforehand), but I’m doing OK. I couldn’t even find the Big Dipper before this class.” last_img read more

Jokic, Murray Lead Nuggets’ 108-90 Romp of Spurs

first_imgDENVER (AP) — After a sputtering start to their postseason, the Denver Nuggets are starting to look like the team that ended a six-year playoff drought in such dramatic fashion.Nikola Jokic has a lot to do with it.Jokic had 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists and fed Jamal Murray (23 points) repeatedly in Denver’s 108-90 romp of the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night.“Their chemistry is almost romantic,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “They care about each other, they love each other. They play for each other. That’s when we’re at our best.”“I mean, we’re growing,” Jokic said. “We’re both really passionate about basketball. So when we have some good plays or whatever, we just want to express our feelings.”surprising second seed in the West, the Nuggets are up 3-2 and can advance to the second round for the first time in a decade with a win in Game 6 Thursday night in San Antonio, where they won last weekend for the first time since 2012.Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (15) shoots over San Antonio Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge (12) in the first half of Game 5 of an NBA basketball first round playoff series, Tuesday, April 23, 2019, in Denver. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)Two weeks ago, Jokic overcame suffocating double teams to become the fourth player in NBA history to record a triple-double in his playoff debut and the first since LeBron James in 2006. But he scored just 10 points to go with 14 assists and 14 rebounds that night.Since then, he’s averaged 22 points, 11 boards and eight assists. Three times he’s come up a pair of assists shy of a triple double.“I mean, every great player is a challenge. And he can do a little bit of everything, and he does all of those things well,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “He’s the consummate team player who has great skills, but he’s also competitive, does a great job, has got a very high basketball IQ.”He’s having quite the coming out party on the national stage, too.“You hear everybody talk about these other players, rightfully so,” Denver coach Michael Malone said. “The league is filled with great players. What Nikola Jokic is doing in his playoff debut has not happened very often in the history of this game. Once again tonight 16, 11 and eight. I damn near ran him into the ground. Those 3s at the end of the quarter were huge.“He can impact the game in so many ways. I hope this playoff crowd, this national TV audience that people are tuning in and watching us and saying, ‘Man, this kid Nikola Jokic is real.’ We know it and it’s about time everyone else realizes it.”Murray’s 23 points led the Nuggets, who finally looked like the team that rolled through the regular season led by Jokic and backed up by the best bench in the league. The Nuggets led by as many as 30 points at 99-69, after which all of their starters took a seat.DeMar DeRozen and LaMarcus Aldridge each scored 17 for San Antonio, but Denver dominated this one almost from the tip.“They just outplayed us in every facet of the game,” Popovich said.They’ll need a similar effort in a closeout game at San Antonio. Asked what he could expect Thursday night, Jokic said, “the toughest game of our lives.”San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich prepares for Game 5 of an NBA basketball first round playoff series against the Denver Nuggets, Tuesday, April 23, 2019, in Denver. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)FAST STARTThe Nuggets led 26-19 after one quarter. Denver had been outscored in the first quarter in all four games and by a total of 31 points, which didn’t sit well with Malone, who said before tipoff, “I think it’s important for us to win the first quarter, but not only to match the intensity and their aggressiveness, to exceed it. We have to come out with a hit-first mentality.”WITHER WHITESpurs point guard Derrick White was held in check again — he had 12 points after scoring eight Saturday night. He averaged 23 points in the first three games, including a career-best 36 in Game 3, before Malone inserted Torrey Craig into the starting lineup in place of Will Barton, which allowed Gary Harris to guard White.“I think our guys realized after the first three games Derrick White was the early MVP of this series,” Malone said. “And we’ve done a really good job in the last couple of games of trying to negate his impact. And that’s been a big part of our success in the last two.”Popovich said what he’s seen in White these last two games is “he’s basically a young kid who’s feeling his way. Playoffs are different than the regular season. And he’s growing and every night is an education, whether he plays poorly or whether he’s great. So, he’s a willing young man, going to have a great future. But he’s got to have this kind of experience. So, hopefully he’ll bounce back on Thursday.”TIP-INSDenver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (15) is pressured by San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl (25) in the first half of Game 5 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series Tuesday, April 23, 2019, in Denver.
