Anadarko allocates $200m for Mozambique LNG
US independent Anadarko Petroleum aims to spend about $200 million on its planned Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in 2019 as it is looking to make a final investment decision. Anadarko said on Thursday revealing the company’s 2019 capital investment that the investment will be allocated toward Anadarko’s portion of the costs associated with ongoing site preparation for the shared Mozambique LNG onshore facilities.Anadarko said it remains on track for the project’s FID consideration in the first half of next year, adding that it plans to adjust its capital-investment expectations associated with the Mozambique LNG project at the time of project sanction.Anadarko and its partners have discovered more than 75 Tcf of natural gas resources in the Prosperidade and Golfinho/Atum complexes in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1, which will be used to feed an onshore LNG terminal on the Afungi peninsula in Cabo Delgado province.The discovered reserves in Mozambique are sufficient to support two initial LNG trains, as well as to accommodate expansions, including additional trains capable of producing about 50 mtpa, according to Anadarko.Besides Anadarko, partners in the Mozambique LNG project are Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1, ONGC Videsh, Bharat PetroResources, PTT Exploration & Production and Oil India.

UWF Volleyball Improves to 6-0 with Win at Alaska-Fairbanks
Sept. 1, 2007 Box Score FAIRBANKS, Alaska – The Argo Volleyball team remains unbeaten with a 3-0 win at Alaska-Fairbanks. The Nanooks, the host school of the Tournament, were in control of game (set) one until the Argos tied it at 30. Despite a strong crowd doing the Igloo Dance, Coach Melissa Wolter explained, “we never panicked, and we were very efficient with the ball on the key points.” After holding off two set points and finally winning set one at 32-30, the Argos put Alaska-Fairbanks away in three straight games, to drop the Nanooks to 5-2 on the young season.A straight-sets victory certainly did not look on the cards early on, as the Nanooks came out strong, taking the game to West Florida. The Argonauts withstood the early assault from a very good Alaska Fairbanks team, and clawed their way back to snatch the first set that would prove critical. West Florida hit an impressive .316 attack percentage, logging 18 kills with just six errors in that first set.From there, Alaska Fairbanks was never able to regain their momentum, dropping the second set 30-23. With their backs against the wall, the Nanooks put up a fight in the third game, but West Florida proved too tough, closing the match out with a 30-25 win.UWF is getting offense from many options, with several players stepping up each match. Coach Wolter stated that , “tonight Chelsea (Wilhoite) and Luciana (Rapach) played real well.” It seems like every match so far this season, two or three players step it up, while the others are steady. Thru the first six games, the Argos are displaying many weapons which may be the overall strength of the team.Setter Madeline Gonzalez turned in another outstanding performance, spreading the offense around to the tune of 54 team kills. Three West Florida players (Kimberly Clark, Rapach and Wilhoite) chipped in 11 kills apiece, while Gonzalez finished with 39 assists. Defensive, the Argos had four players (Jerica Carter, Rapach, Clark, and Wilhoite) with 10 digs for the match.Senior Jessica King led the Nanooks with 13 kills, along with a team-high three aces. Middle hitters Korlyn Bolster and Erica Gage showed some solid defense to slow the Argos a little, finishing with four block assists each for Alaska Fairbanks.The Argos now 6-0 on the season, are playing a late Saturday night match vs. Hawaii-Hilo (3-3), to conclude the three matches in Alaska. The Argos will be back in action at the UWF Fieldhouse on September 7th, hosting the Argonaut Regional Cross-over. UWF hosts Emporia State at 7:00 on Friday evening, as the Tournament then continues on Saturday and Sunday.Here is the Journal entry from the third day of the Argonaut’s trip to Alaska. Submitted by Jesse Keroack on August 31:Today was another beautiful and exciting day in Alaska! We woke up to a chilly but sunny morning and picnicked in one of the girls’ rooms. The bananas and yogurt were a huge hit and we devoured our breakfast while enjoying the animated movie Madagascar. Around noon we met downstairs and drove to the luncheon scheduled for us, and all the teams in the tournament. We arrived at a park-like place called “The Salmon Bake.” The lunch was another fabulous meal of fresh salmon, prime rib, salad, pasta, bread and desserts, which we unfortunately could only have one of under coaches’ orders. As the luncheon progressed, all the teams were introduced and the coaches gave short speeches. To our enjoyment and surprise of the coaches, they were taught and preformed a traditional Eskimo dance called the “igloo dance.” Coach Wolter preformed the whole dance with a huge grin of both embarrassment and splendor. Naturally we all pulled out our cameras and filmed the entire thing!After the meal and ceremony, we got to explore the spectacular grounds at the park. There were playgrounds, ponds, little shops and small museums all over, and every small log cabin like building was surrounded with vibrant flowers. We all enjoyed the comfortably cool weather and sights in the park, but we had to leave and head over to the gym for a short practice. After our practice we headed back to the hotel for a little snack and down time until we had to return for our first match of the tournament. We were all anxious to get to the gym and show everyone here what we could do. We had been looking forward to this trip according to coach for “at least 8 months”. Finally it was time to play! For our first match we played the Humboldt Lumberjacks from California. We swept them in a 3 game match. After watching some of the following match, which included both our opponents for tomorrow’s (Saturday) matches, we headed back to the hotel for a good nights rest.

Malouda: Chelsea situation is ‘petty’
Press Association Florent Malouda has described his exile at Chelsea as “petty”. He added: “If you are excluded for one year, it is very, very long. You must be armed mentally. “All this is done to break me mentally, but in reality it motivates me enormously.” Malouda, who has been linked with a move to Anzhi Makhachkala, with the Russian transfer window open until the end of this month, declined to reveal more due to “confidentiality”, but may do so on his anticipated release this summer. The 32-year-old France international, who moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2007 and is in the final year of his contract, was excluded from the Blues’ 25-man first-team squad and has spent the season training with the under-21 team. “The details I’ll explain when I’m free, but the strategy they use is to make me look like a player seeking substantial compensation,” Malouda told France-Guyane. “It’s petty but more than anything else it makes me smile because it shows how these people regard me.”
Fulham sign Heitinga
Press Association Fulham have completed the signing of Everton defender John Heitinga on a free transfer. “I’m really pleased to get the move completed and I’m looking forward to playing my first game,” Heitinga told the club’s official website, www.fulhamfc.com. “I think it’s a good move for myself and I’m looking forward to meeting my team-mates. “I’ve spoken already with Rene Meulensteen and I think it’s the right club for me. “This is a club with a great history and I always enjoyed playing at Craven Cottage, I really like it as a stadium. It’s not one of the biggest but it’s got something special.” Heitinga moves to west London initially until the end of the season and will hope to impress enough to earn a call-up to the Holland squad for the World Cup. The defender came through Ajax’s fabled academy before moving to Atletico Madrid in Spain and on to the Premier League with Everton. “Of course I know Maarten Stekelenburg very well – we were players at Ajax together and we played many years in the national team together,” Heitinga said of the Fulham goalkeeper. “I chose Fulham because the feeling was good and what was also important was the conversation between me and Rene. “He knows exactly what he wants and I know exactly what I want. The main thing is to keep Fulham in the league and hopefully the boys will start with a win against Southampton.” The 30-year-old Dutchman spent four-and-a-half years at Goodison Park, amassing 140 first-team appearances and scoring five goals. However, Heitinga’s playing time has been restricted to just five appearances this term and has been allowed by Everton manager Roberto Martinez to join Fulham on a permanent deal.

It noted that testing should not replace the quarantine of those diagnosed with COVID-19, and recommended that players and staff cooperate with contact tracing. Teams should report clusters of three or more positive cases that occur within a two-week period.___The Mid-American Conference will delay the start of its fall Olympic sports, including men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball, to Sept. 3.

Fans experience exhilarating win in 3-D
Thousands of people poured into the Galen Center on Saturday decked in Cardinal and Gold, but they weren’t going to see a USC basketball game.Instead, the 7,500 people who attended the ESPN viewing this Saturday saw a historic college football game — in three dimensions.Alternate viewing · Wearing special glasses, a few of the more than 7,000 fans cheer wildly at the Galen Center while watching USC’s nail-biting 18-15 win in a pilot three-dimensional telecast produced by ESPN. – Young Kim | Daily TrojanWith the Trojans in Columbus, Ohio, for their highly anticipated matchup with the No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes, many faithful Trojan fans were looking for a way to experience the game without actually making the trip to Ohio Stadium. ESPN gave Trojans fans just that, as the Galen Center saw the first-ever broadcast of a college football game in RealD, which has been used in the past for movies such as Monsters vs. Aliens and the recent X-Games 3-D: The Movie.The RealD experience is not what one might expect from a 3-D broadcast. Instead of images popping out of the screen, the feed — combined with special glasses which look much like the classic wayfarers of RayBan fame — create the illusion of depth, which provides a much more realistic viewing experience.The Galen Center’s broadcast was not the only place to see the game in 3-D this weekend, as ESPN set up six other broadcast areas around the country, including the theater at L.A. Live.The game experience seemed so realistic that fans might confuse the atmosphere for that of the Coliseum. The crowd shouted when the Buckeyes had the ball, and hushed when the Trojans drove on offense. They jeered whenever a Buckeye was even mentioned or shown on screen.By halftime, with the score tied at 10, many were impressed by the 3-D viewing experience.Jared Greiner, a junior majoring in interactive entertainment, was among those enjoying the broadcast enough to stay for the remainder of the game.“It’s very cool, I’m glad I came,” Greiner said at halftime of the game. “I wasn’t planning on staying for the whole game, but I think I will now. As long as the game stays close.”But Greiner, along with most of the crowd, was somewhat confused about how it all worked. Ed Cunningham, who joined Bob Davie and Mark Jones as the specialized broadcast team for the 3-D feed, had some explanation early in the first quarter.“Two images are being pumped out into the [Galen Center], just like your eyes,” Cunningham said. “The game is shot at a little different angle than you’re used to seeing. It’s like a stop sign, from a distance it doesn’t look like it has much dimension, but as you get closer, there is more dimension to it.”The crowd never seemed to care much for the real engineering behind the extravaganza, though. They only cared about the game.As the game came down to the final minutes, the crowd was treated to the most realistic viewing experience they could have had without being at Ohio Stadium. When freshman quarterback Matt Barkley led the Trojans to the final scoring drive of the game, all of his passes were seen in three dimensions, as were all of junior Joe McKnight’s game-changing runs.At the end of the night, the fans were asked to return their glasses in recycling bins to be reused, likely for one of the various 3-D movies that were previewed during commercial breaks. Because the game was so exhilirating, it was unclear how much the 3-D angles contributed to the fans’ post-game elation.
Women of Troy open dual meet season
After competing in tournaments down the coastline last weekend, the USC women’s tennis team will begin competition today, hosting their first dual match of the year.The No. 9 nationally ranked Women of Troy will challenge the No. 50 Long Beach State 49ers today at Marks Stadium at 1:30 p.m. Last year, USC beat Long Beach State 7-0 during the spring season and is hoping to repeat that success.Leader · Junior Maria Sanchez is ranked No. 8 headed into the season. – Photo courtesy of USC Sports Information The seven-time defending Big West champion 49ers, however, also hold an impressive roster. Sophomore Rachel Manasse and freshman Jaklin Alawi made their debut in the doubles rankings at No. 58. The duo had a perfect 4-0 record in fall play, and won the Fullerton Invitational doubles championship.But the Women of Troy are also coming out of a successful fall season. Eight players returned from the 2009 roster, which went undefeated in the Pac-10, claiming their first-ever conference crown and a 21-3 overall record.Junior Maria Sanchez leads the way after pounding out a dominant fall season for the Trojans, holding a No. 8 singles ranking. Sanchez and the Women of Troy are looking for a fast start to their season.“We are all just getting eager to start the season,” Sanchez said.Sophomore Alison Ramos, who holds a No. 39 ranking in singles, echoed Sanchez’s anticipation for the dual season to begin.“We’re just ready to compete,” Ramos said.Two other Women of Troy have secured 2010 singles rankings, with freshmen Danielle Lao and Valeria Pulido weighing in a No. 18 and No. 37.In the doubles scene, Sanchez and Pulido are teamed up with a No. 19 national rank.The lineup for the match includes six singles matches and three doubles matches. The lineup is not yet official, but for singles play, it is expected to be Sanchez, senior Sarah Fansler, Ramos, Lao, Pulido and junior Leyla Entekhabi.For doubles play, the lineup is expected to be Sanchez and junior Lyndsay Kinstler, Pulido and Fansler, and Ramos and Lao.Each win for a singles match earns the team one team point, while the team that wins two out of three doubles matches gets a doubles point.The teams will be notified this morning if the match is still on, depending on weather conditions. If there is bad weather, the match will be rescheduled for a later date. USC will also host UC Irvine on Friday at 1:30 p.m. at Marks Stadium.
Injury bug still relevant
Sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee, back at practice after missing Saturday to compete in — and win — the long jump at the Trojan Invitational, continued to shine. Lee ran crisp routes, made diving catches and continually shook off defenders with ease in both drills and scrimmaging.Scrimmage frenzy · Though the list of injuries is still significant, the Trojans’ offense is starting to look comfortable. – Chris Pham | Daily Trojan“He’s playing every position now. He now has a year of experience under his belt, and has improved every detail of his game, especially becoming a better technician on the field,” wide receiver coach Tee Martin said.“He’s a really unique individual. Coming out here and running springs, just 48 hours after winning the long jump, he just goes forever,” USC coach Lane Kiffin said.ωWhile junior Robert Woods is sidelined for spring with an ankle injury, his absence has given other wideouts an extended look. In addition to Lee, redshirt junior wide receiver De’Von Flournoy has been getting additional reps and took advantage of his opportunity, being named player of the day.Redshirt freshman wideout Victor Blackwell also displayed solid hands in drills, looking like another impressive part of a wide receiver group that is looking to be deeper than initially thought.Still, the injury bug remains on everyone’s mind. Sophomore wideout George Farmer has been dealing with a hamstring injury all spring and sat out Saturday, participating in some drills but not in the scrimmage.Throughout practice, Farmer slipped while making cuts and seemed exhausted while participating in one-on-one drills.“I can run and I can catch, but when I try to be explosive, I’m not that explosive. … I tried to plant my foot and make an exaggerated cut, but couldn’t,” Farmer said.ωAs for updates on the backup quarterback situation, Kiffin was mum, simply replying “They both do things well,” when asked about the competition between redshirt freshmen Cody Kessler and Max Wittek. There was no discernible favorite on the field either, as each quarterback took their fair share of reps.Additionally, Kiffin, in his third year at USC, gave an interesting revelation about the goal of spring ball right now.“[It’s] more about individual and skill set development,” Kiffin said.This is hopefully a good sign that the team’s cohesiveness is already established to a comfortable level.After injuring his back on Saturday, redshirt freshman fullback Soma Vainuku was out again.ωAdditionally, redshirt sophomore tight ends Xavier Grimble (toe) and Randall Telfer (hamstring), redshirt freshman cornerback Ryan Henderson (concussion) and redshirt freshman running back Javorious Allen (hamstring) were out. Senior center Khaled Holmes was limited after not practicing Saturday, not participating in most of the scrimmage.Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Cody Temple is scheduled to have surgery on his ankle and will be out for the rest of spring practice.
