first_imgKarish field; Image source: CenergyCorinth Pipeworks Pipe Industry has signed an agreement with TechnipFMC for the manufacture and supply of the steel pipes for Energean’s Karish gas field development offshore Israel.Cenergy, Corinth Pipeworks’ parent company, said last Thursday that the agreement covers 90 kilometers of 24″ and 30″ LSAW pipe material for the offshore gas pipeline.The pipeline connects the subsea manifold at a maximum water depth of 1,750 meters to the receiving terminal onshore.The company added that the pipe manufacturing and coating would begin at the Corinth Pipeworks facility in Greece later in 2018.“This award for a deepwater pipeline project is another milestone in the development of Corinth Pipeworks’ growing presence in the upstream offshore energy business segment,” the company said.To remind, Energean Oil & Gas, operator of the Karish field, awarded an iEPCI contract for the full field development of the field to TechnipFMC back in late March.The execution of this contract covers the design, procurement, construction and installation of the complete subsea system, a floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO) designed to allow the subsequent tie-back of the Tanin field, the pipeline system, and the onshore pipeline and valve station at the receiving station.TechnipFMC was previously awarded a $1.36 billion contract for the construction of an FPSO. The oilfield services provider then chose Sembcorp Marine to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of hull and living quarters for the FPSO.The company was also the contractor for Concept and Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the Karish and Tanin development.last_img read more

Mourinho claims he agreed Real job after 2010 triumph over Barca

first_img The Portuguese boss was appointed at the Santiago Bernabeu that summer after leading the Nerazzurri to the Champions League title. However, he has now revealed the decision was made in advance of his side’s defeat of Bayern Munich in the showpiece, which ironically took place in the Spanish capital. Mourinho said he had the blessing of Inter president Massimo Moratti to join Los Blancos, but he also revealed that he was never as happy in Madrid as he had been at Inter. The current Tottenham boss was arguably at the peak of his managerial powers during his time at Inter, helping them to dominate Italian football and masterminding their Champions League triumph including the memorable victory over Barcelona.Advertisement Jose Mourinho has revealed he decided to join Real Madrid from Inter after the Champions League semi-final triumph over Barcelona. Having beaten Pep Guardiola’s side 3-1 at the San Siro, and despite a red card for Thiago Motta in the Camp Nou – Inter progressed 3-2 on aggregate. “I made the decision after the second game of the semi-final with Barcelona, because I knew we were going to win the Champions League,” Mourinho told Gazzetta dello Sport, via Marca. “Moratti understood, but his words were not necessary, it was seen by how we hugged each other on the pitch after the Madrid final. “Moratti told me ‘after this you have the right to leave’. It was the allowance to do what I wanted, to be happy. As it turned out, I was happier in Milan than in Madrid. # Read Also: Messi asked if he would pass to Ronaldo if they played together “If I had returned to Milan after the Santiago Bernabéu final, with the fans chanting my name, perhaps I would not have left Inter. I had not yet signed with Madrid. Those who say that a Madrid delegate came to our hotel in Madrid before the final (won against Bayern) is nonsense. “I wanted to go to Madrid. They wanted me from the previous year, I proposed it to Moratti, but he convinced me to stay. And I had already told Madrid when I was at Chelsea. You cannot say no three times to Madrid.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading… Promoted ContentTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!Fantastic-Looking (and Probably Delicious) Bread ArtWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?A Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs13 kids at weddings who just don’t give a hoot7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

French Open bans Hamou over attempts to kiss reporter on live TV

first_imgTennis player Maxime Hamou’s accreditation has been revoked by the organisers of the French Open after he tried to kiss a female reporter repeatedly during a live TV interview.The French player, 21, kissed journalist Maly Thomas while holding her around her neck and shoulders, despite her efforts to duck away.The French Tennis Federation (FTT) condemned the “reprehensible behaviour” and ordered an investigation.Hamou has not commented on his actions.The incident happened after he was knocked out of the first round of the competition on Monday. Several anchors and commentators on the Eurosport programme Avantage Leconte laughed and clapped as it unfolded. The episode drew ire on social media, including from French politician Cécile Duflot.”He kisses her by force, she tries to get away, he holds her by the neck and everyone… laughs #tired,” the Green MP wrote on Twitter (in French).Quoted by the Huffington Post France, Ms Thomas described the player’s actions as “frankly unpleasant”.”If I hadn’t been live on air, I would have punched him.”The BBC has asked Eurosport for comment. It is the latest case to provoke allegations of harassment of female sports reporters. In January 2016, West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle drew a barrage of criticism after he asked a TV reporter for a date in a live interview.He was later fined $7,200 (£4,900) by his club for “inappropriate conduct”. It is not the first time Hamou, who has a career high singles ranking of 211, has caused controversy at this year’s French Open.He walked out of an interview on Friday after a journalist posed a clumsy question. On Monday he also angrily berated an umpire on court, asking: “Why are you here?”last_img read more

Yahoo DFS Picks Week 15: Daily fantasy football lineup advice for GPP tournaments

first_imgYahoo’s Week 15 NFL DFS pricing allows plenty of opportunities to take advantage of apparent value plays to stuff a GPP lineup with studs that you might normally picture as cash game plays. I’m feeling really good about getting Carson Wentz, Dalvin Cook, Courtland Sutton, D.J. Moore and Tyreek Hill all into the same lineup.I wasn’t expecting my Week 14 lineup to crash and burn due to DeVante Parker and Leonard Fournette, but they want a long way to making it a bust. Parker’s concussion obviously didn’t help matters, while Jacksonville was just really bad. At least there’s always next week. MORE WEEK 15 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderFLEX Tyreek Hill, Chiefs vs. Broncos ($30). The Broncos don’t present a super favorable matchup, but hopefully that moves people off Hill and we get his game-breaking speed in our lineup at relatively low ownership.D/ST Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Lions ($15). We’re definitely not worried at all about David Blough or an already depleted backfield that could have Bo Scarbrough (ribs) hurting, too. The Bucs should get sacks and limit points in this one, and any takeaways would be gravy. WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerNFL DFS Week 15: Yahoo GPP Lineup PicksQB Carson Wentz, Eagles @ Redskins ($28). Overall, Wentz has been a bit of a disappointment in 2019. But there’s no reason a matchup with the reeling Redskins will slow him down. This is a game where he can throw for at least 250 yards with a couple scores and run for 30 more — and that’s just his floor. UPDATED: QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks @ Panthers ($30). Swapping out Wentz to create a different stack this week — we’ll take a slightly lowered Wilson price and anticipate a bounceback game for him here.WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash RB Patrick Laird, Dolphins @ Giants ($12). Laird saw 15 carries to go with catching four-of-five targets in Week 14. That’s 20 attempts to get him the ball at a $12 price tag. I’d take that against any defense, but especially against the Giants.WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endRB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Chargers ($36). This week’s pricing allowed for almost any high-priced option here and at the FLEX spot, and after a couple of off weeks, Cook was back to 18 carries in Week 14. He’s one of the best floor-ceiling combos each week due to his high touch totals to go with his game-breaking ability.WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Redskins ($20). Jeffery is the only WR Wentz has that’s worth trusting as a stack option, and his price tag is totally fair. Washington doesn’t have any shutdown corners to worry about, either.UPDATED: WR DK Metcalf, Seahawks @ Panthers ($17). Can’t afford Tyler Lockett for the stack here, so we’ll take Metcalf and hope Wilson can connect with him deep.WR Courtland Sutton, Broncos @ Chiefs ($21). Drew Lock has been a revelation and opened this offense up enough to make Sutton a super appealing play against a mediocre defense that Denver might be forced to throw a ton on to keep up.MORE WEEK 15:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsWR D.J. Moore, Panthers vs. Seahawks ($27). The last time Moore saw fewer than six targets in a game was Sept. 29. Seattle showed it can be beat through the air by the Rams in Week 14 (we knew that already anyway), and Kyle Allen isn’t bad enough to ruin Moore.TE O.J. Howard, Buccaneers @ Lions ($11). Howard caught four balls in Week 14, and this is mostly a bet that the absence of Mike Evans due to a hamstring injury makes Howard a much more important piece of this offense against a bad Lions team.last_img read more
