Students from states on travel advisory list must quarantine, Binghamton University says

first_imgThere is no penalty for taking the third option and canceling housing. The third option is to enroll in remote courses and cancel housing. Students will not have to pay any costs if they wish to quarantine at the Quality Inn. However, the university says it will not cover expenses for self-quarantining at other locations off campus. The university is giving students three options: VESTAL (WBNG) — Binghamton University students who are traveling from a state on New York’s quarantine list must self-quarantine for two weeks before moving into their campus residence.center_img The first option is students must comply with the governor’s mandate and complete the quarantine on their own.

BP hands out subsea contracts for West African development

first_imgOil major BP has selected McDermott and Baker Hughes, a GE company, for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) for SURF and SPS scope of work of BP’s Tortue/Ahmeyim field development. McDermott and Baker Hughes on Monday announced the selection of front-end engineering design (FEED) studies in advance of the substantial EPCI contract for the Tortue/Ahmeyim field development, a major gas project located on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.During this initial engineering phase, McDermott said it will work on defining the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) scope for the project, while BHGE will focus on the subsea production system (SPS) scope. The FEED is scheduled to begin and complete this year.The agreement contains a mechanism to allow transition of the contract to a lump sum EPCI contract at a later date. McDermott will work jointly with BHGE to provide an optimized, integrated solution.Scott Munro, Vice President of Americas, Europe and Africa, said: “Building on our relationship with BP on Angelin, McDermott’s focus on modernized project management and a collaborative approach will create a fully inclusive, open and transparent working environment for BP and major partners to ensure success. Our integrated approach with BHGE will bring the best total solution to BP that we believe will provide schedule and budget certainty.”Graham Gillies, Vice President, Subsea Production Systems and Subsea Services at BHGE, said: “We will be working closely with BP and McDermott on this strategically-important gas project, that will benefit from our extensive knowledge of deep water, large bore gas technologies and FEED capabilities.”“Increasingly, industry players are looking for commercially-innovative business models and integrated offerings that help reduce costs, while increasing efficiency and productivity. This is an excellent example of how the industry has evolved its approach, with global operators now embracing the benefits of early engagement with OEMs and service providers.”McDermott expects to use the Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) module from its new digital platform Gemini XD to deliver advanced technology through project execution and the development of a digital twin of the complete system.The project will also benefit from BHGE’s RealTrack digital collaboration tool which provides live, real-time reporting of schedule progress, document status and issues management for more efficient project execution. RealTrack is designed to help customers optimize their operations, respond quickly to arising issues and plan effectively for changing requirements as projects evolve.Teams from McDermott and BHGE will perform the project management and FEED work from McDermott’s Epsom facility in the United Kingdom.The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. From here liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.The Tortue/Ahmeyim field development is located in the C-8 block off the shore of Mauritania and the Saint-Louis Profond block offshore Senegal. The Tortue discovery was made by Kosmos Energy, which farmed down its investment to BP in December 2016. BP now has the largest interest (~60%) among the four partners in the project and is the operator.last_img read more

Dodgers’ offense runs short in 5-4 loss to Giants

first_img“I just think (it was) a little too much aggressiveness and a couple of them were just kind of just mental mistakes.”The Dodgers had 40 baserunners while scoring 17 runs in the first two games of the season. They kept putting them on base Saturday afternoon as well. But Justin Turner drove in their first run of the afternoon with an RBI double in the first inning.That made Giants starter Logan Webb the ninth of 10 different Giants pitchers to be charged with at least one run in this series against the Dodgers. They left the bases loaded in the second when Mookie Betts flew out to end the inning, but it still felt like just a matter of time before the Dodgers’ offense woke up. But the bats weren’t the problem.Turner dropped another double into right field with one out in the third. But he was left helpless when Corey Seager’s knuckling line drive was caught by Giants second baseman Wilmer Flores, who had shifted into shallow right field against Seager. Turner was easily doubled off.In the fourth, things looked promising for the Dodgers when Chris Taylor and Joc Pederson led off with singles. But Taylor made a dash for third base when the throw from right field on Pederson’s single momentarily got loose with no one covering third. Webb got there in time to tag Taylor out. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The fourth ended on another misadventure when Pederson was doubled off first on Kiké Hernandez’s flyout to center.In the fifth, it was Austin Barnes’ turn. He led off with a single but was doubled off to end the inning on a Betts’ line drive to shortstop Mauricio Dubon.By then, the Dodgers were down 5-1, thanks to a wayward start by Alex Wood in his re-debut with the team. Wood gave up a run in each of his three innings, grinding away to keep the damage down in a 31-pitch second inning.“I kind of got away from my general plan of how aggressive I am,” said Wood, who made only seven starts last season for the Cincinnati Reds due to a back injury. “We threw a little bit too much soft stuff early. I think they had some good at-bats and ended up drawing three walks in those first two or three innings.“It was just overall getting away from what I do best, in terms of pounding the zone and attacking early. I thought that was the difference. I felt much better in third inning. I kind of got back to doing what I typically like to do and it felt better in the third inning. But those first two innings, it just wasn’t me in terms of plan of attack.”Dennis Santana followed him and gave up two runs in the fourth, putting the Dodgers down even further. The Dodgers almost overcame their shortcomings – by taking advantage of some of the Giants’ many flaws.An eighth-inning rally against lefty reliever Tony Watson was sparked by a hit batter – Max Muncy for the second time in the game – and a two-base error by Donovan Solano at third base. It was the Giants’ seventh error in the first three games.Related Articles Corey Seager drove in two unearned runs with a two-out single. After a slow ground ball by Taylor crawled into right field against a defense shifted to the left, Giants reliever Tyler Rogers hit Joc Pederson with a pitch to load the bases and put the go-ahead runs on. But Hernandez grounded out to end the threat.The late life continued when Will Smith led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run, clipping a cardboard cutout beyond the wall in left-center and making it a one-run game. That was as close as they got, the squandered opportunities growing in importance as the game wound down.

I think how we got there today, I’m not pleased with. You leave four outs on the field. That’s something that, for us, we pride ourselves on – intelligence and running the bases, knowing the scoreboard. But, when you get doubled off four times and give away outs, that’s just not helpful. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more
