Maybe, just maybe, they’ve picked up this phrase from listening into someone’s conversation and thought it sounded like something they should pursue.When a 7-year-old claims boredom and the parents feel obligated to fill the void, might I suggest that something is terribly wrong with this relationship.Boredom, according to Google is “feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in current activity.”Children of any age being bored, according to my mother, meant it was time for adults to intervene and erase the stigma.Erasing the stigma for my mother was not quite what the parents I recently encountered had in mind. These folk who felt their 7-year-old had already outgrown the several electronic gadgets they had already provided were on the prowl for where to next spend their dollars.Neither my mother nor the rest of the wise women from back in the day didn’t raise bored kids.Kids who might have thought this way were cured quite quickly by being given a new list of chores.Back then, kids, even at the age of 7, didn’t get weary because they were unoccupied. If they lacked interest in their current activity, they didn’t let the adults know, as they simply learned to find something else to do for themselves. 13 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Business News Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Equinor picks Aibel for work on Oseberg fields

Equinor picks Aibel for work on Oseberg fields

first_imgPeggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor’s chief procurement officer, said: “There will be an increased level of project activity at the Oseberg fields in the coming years. With one main supplier, we will be able to synchronize the different projects schedules, utilize synergies between parallel projects, and optimize personnel onboard. Equinor saidon Wednesday that the aim of the portfolio agreement was to ensure a holisticapproach to planning and execution of projects at the Oseberg fields. Having soldaround 2.9 billion barrels of oil, Oseberg is Norway’s third-largest oilproducer of all time, following Statfjord and Ekofisk. Since production startedin 1988, the Oseberg field has generated an estimated revenue of more than $95.4billion. Productionfrom the first unmanned wellhead platform on the Norwegian continental shelf,Oseberg H, started in the autumn of 2018. In a separate statement, Aibel said that the agreement can ensure call-off agreements of “major size” which, in the company’s terms, is up to NOK 2.5 billion or around $265 million. Theobjective of the OGP project is to maximise Oseberg asset value through timelylow-pressure production and increased gas export and to reduce its carbonfootprint by partly electrifying the field centre and Oseberg South with powerfrom shore. Upon a final investment decision by Equinor and its partners and final regulatory approval in the OGP project, Equinor can exercise a call-off for engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI). “The portfolio agreement will allow us to work with Aibel on Oseberg in an integrated way, focusing on safety, continuous improvement, and cost-efficiency. It will also create predictability and continuation for supplier’s personnel and sites”. One of Equinor’s largest producers Also, Equinor awarded Aibel a front-end engineering and design contract (FEED) for the Oseberg gas capacity upgrade and power from shore project (OGP), as the first call-off under the portfolio agreement. The value of the FEED contract is around NOK 120 million ($12.7M). Call-offs up to $265 million Increased gas capacity through the OGP project will increase the value of future tie-ins to the field. Equinor and its partners in the field – Total, Petoro, and ConocoPhillips – are working towards a final investment decision in late 2021.center_img Geir Sørtveit, SVP for operations west in Equinor, stated: “Oseberg is a legacy field that has played a key role in developing the Norwegian continental shelf and will continue to be an important hub in the North Sea towards 2040. The gas isexported from the Oseberg field centre to markets in the UK and the Continent.Oil and condensate are piped to the Sture terminal in Øygarden, north ofBergen. “In addition, a good deal of our electrification expertise has accumulated here and at our other offices, so I am convinced that we are well equipped to deliver solutions that meet customer expectations“. “We look forward to collaborating and working safely together with Aibel to develop Oseberg for further value creation and lower CO2 emissions for the future”. Nils Arne Sølvik, Aibel’s EVP of modifications and yard services, added: “Over the years, employees at our office in Bergen have acquired solid expertise on Oseberg and Kollsnes from previous projects. The offshore service firm further stated that the projects will be managed from Aibel’s office in Bergen with support from other offices. “At the same time, there is also an endorsement of Aibel’s commitment to electrification on the Norwegian continental shelf, where we are already playing a prominent role in the electrification of Johan Sverdrup and the surrounding fields at the Utsira High“. Norwegian oil major Equinor has awarded compatriot Aibel a portfolio agreement for the Oseberg fields for the period 2020-2026.
