Lukoil installs living quarters jacket at Caspian Sea field

first_imgRussian oil and gas company Lukoil has completed the installation of a jacket for an accommodation platform topside at the V.I. Grayfer field in the Caspian Sea. Valery Grayfer living quarters jacket; Source: Lukoil Lukoil said on Monday that the offshore operations on the field, named after its recently deceased chairman and “founding father” of the Soviet oil industry Valery Isaakovich Grayfer, involved 110 workers and nine vessels. To remind, Lukoil launched the jacket for the Valery Grayfer field living quarters platform in early April. According to Lukoil, the design life of the facility is 35 years and is built to endure significant ice loads. Valery Grayfer (Died: 24 April 2020); Source-Lukoil Like all other platforms of the company in the Caspian Sea, the living quarters platform jacket was constructed at the shipyards of the Astrakhan region. Production at the V.I. Grayfer field is scheduled for 2022 with a planned production rate at 1.2 million tonnes of oil. The company plans to install a jacket for its offshore ice-resistant fixed platform at the same field later this year and mount living quarters and platform topsides on the substructures in 2021. Grayfer himself died only days later following the launch of the jacket. He was a man with a rare distinction of having an oil field named after him while he was still alive. The facility was brought to the offshore installation site via the Volga-Caspian Shipping Canal. After the floatover and grounding, the substructures were fixed with ten piles of 56 meters in length each and with a total weight of 1,700 tonnes. When installed and fixed, the facility was inspected by divers.last_img read more

Syracuse defensive back commit Williams works way back from broken fibula

first_img Published on October 28, 2013 at 11:18 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb It’s 6:30 a.m., and Brian Wright arrives at Cherry Hill (N.J.) West High School for another day of school. He walks past the weight room and takes a glance inside.Rodney Williams, boot on his left foot, is already half an hour into a workout session with the team’s new starting quarterback.“He’s doing everything he can, and he’s very anxious to get back out there with his teammates,” Wright said. “He’s in the training room every day, working with our athletic trainer, doing whatever he needs to do to get himself ready.”Williams, a three-star recruit by Scout.com, is one of Syracuse’s 14 verbal commits in its incoming Class of 2014. An extremely versatile player for Cherry Hill West, he’s expected to join the Orange’s secondary next year.But before the Lions complete their ongoing season, Williams hopes his broken left fibula makes a recovery in time to re-join the team for its likely playoff appearance. The odds are against Williams, but he’s making his best effort.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“There’s not a good chance,” he said, “but I’m really trying. Definitely trying.”In Cherry Hill West’s game at Seneca on Oct. 11, Williams felt pain in his left calf after a late hit out of bounds. He fought through the pain to finish the game, but had to see a doctor the following week, who told him he had bone bruising.Relegated to crutches during the first half of the week, he finally jogged around that Thursday and practiced leading up to the Lions’ Oct. 19 matchup against Woodrow Wilson High School.The second quarter had just begun, and Williams was 5 yards away from his third touchdown of the game. But his fibula couldn’t handle the pressure of the cut he was trying to make, and the bone snapped. “At the time, I thought I just got kicked in the leg pretty bad,” Williams said. “But when I saw it on film, it was pretty disgusting.”Still, he walked on that leg for the rest of the day. When he went to the hospital, the medical staff told him it was still a bone bruise and “nothing major” — until the X-rays indicated otherwise. The initial response from the team doctor, Wright said, was that Williams would be sidelined 2-4 weeks, with a four-week time period being more likely.Until then, Cherry Hill West is missing its starting quarterback, safety, kicker, kick and punt returner — the list of Williams’ duties goes on. The Lions escaped with a one-point win over Woodrow Wilson, but lost by four touchdowns without him on Friday. “Offensively, we’ve lost three touchdowns a game,” Cherry Hill West defensive backs coach Tyree Jackson said. “We’re losing a leader on offense, defense, special teams.”Currently, Williams is letting the swelling ease up. He recently began putting weight on his swollen foot, and his calf is even bigger now than it was before. Once the swelling is relieved, Wright said, Williams will take a more aggressive approach to his rehab. He’s scheduled to visit a doctor next week for re-evaluation.But that doesn’t stop him from hitting the gym. Every morning of every school day. He now weighs 190 pounds after weighing 160 this time a year ago, he said, and he’s hoping to build some more upper-body strength.At the same time, Williams has embraced a larger leadership role for the Lions. He has taken the team’s new quarterback under his wing. The coaches had him speak to the group before Friday’s game. And if a teammate deserves feedback — for something he can improve on, or something he does well — Williams is there, lending his four years of varsity football experience to the rest of the Lions.It took Williams almost a week to accept the possibility that his high school football career may be over, but Syracuse defensive line coach Tim Daoust reassured Williams that his career wasn’t over. There’s even a chance Williams’ fibula will grow back stronger, Wright said, when the bone regenerates. Combined with the solace he finds as a rejuvenated leader for Cherry Hill West, Williams has plenty of reason to stay upbeat.“It’s just the support that I’ve got,” he said. “From even Syracuse fans now, my friends at school, family — They’ve done a great job supporting me since this has happened. “I mean, it could be a lot worse. I’m still thankful for the position I’m in.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

The Pucela would touch the permanence extrapolating the results of the first round

first_imgIf the competition resumes one day, Real Valladolid will11 games would be ahead, like the rest of the teams, and with 29 points he should still add between nine and eleven to reach a permanence to which right now the blanquivioleta team leads in four, the Mallorca brand, with 25 points, although the pucelanos have the great goal won with the vermilions by having defeated Vicente Moreno in both duels, so they should earn five more units than the Valladolid people to get out of the descent.If we extrapolate the results of the first round to the games that are missing in this second round, the result is that Real Valladolid would get 10 points, would add 39, which, practically, would give him salvation. In this way, Sergio’s team tied with Leganés, Celta and Atlético de Madrid, the next three rivals, then four duels would come in which Pucela did not get a point (Getafe, Sevilla, Levante and Alavés) would face Valencia , with which he tied at Zorrilla, would receive Barça, the team that beat Blanquivioletas 5-1, and would finish the League against two teams that they have already won: Eibar and Betis. In total two wins, four draws and five defeats. The negative side of this extrapolation is that in the first round, the Valladolid players against the rivals who have already played in the second round, had achieved 11 points, while in this second round they only added eight in the same number of games. We will therefore have to wait for the competition to resume to see if the team improves the 21 points of the first round, which would take him to 42, or it stays a little shorter. We must remember that last season the team finished four points above the descent with 41 points, 22 won in the first round and 19 in the second.And it is necessary to take into account that, right now, in a simulation of the score, the permanence would be 35.2 points, that is, 36, reason why to Real Valladolid repeating the results of the first return the accounts would leave him. However, extrapolating is not a scientific method, much less because of those 11 duels in the first round, the blanquivioletas played five at home and six at home. Now it will be the other way around. The pucelanos will play six games in Zorrilla, against Levante and Alavés in a row, and five at home so the points could be more given that the Valladolid players this season have achieved better results before their public, despite having played fewer games: 16 points in 13 home matches and 13 points in 14 duels away.last_img read more
