Dutch offshore access solutions provider Ampelmann has secured a contract to supply the North Oil Company (NOC) with its A-type gangway system. Ampelmann said on Monday that the gangway would be installed on the chartered diesel-electric, 73-meter Bourbon Gulf Star support vessel currently deployed to the Al Shaheen oil field, 80 kilometers north of Doha, Qatar.The Ampelmann gangway will enable access to multiple offshore platforms and will be used during project and maintenance campaigns as well as during various scheduled shutdowns.The gangway was installed on the Bourbon Gulf Star at the end of November and will be deployed from early December until June 2018. The A-type can compensate up to three-meter significant wave height.The Ampelmann country manager for Qatar, Jayne Moran, says: “Being awarded this contract is important to Ampelmann, as we continue to expand our presence in the Middle East. The A-type gangway provides our customers with a safe, reliable and cost-efficient method of transferring offshore personnel.”Ampelmann has been providing offshore personnel access in Qatar since 2013. The company has carried out over 3.8 million safe transfers to date globally.The Al Shaheen field is among the world’s largest oil fields. It has been producing oil for over 20 years and holds the potential to produce a few-fold of the oil it has produced so far. It currently produces around 40% of Qatar’s crude oil, at around 300,000 barrels per day.The field was operated by Maersk Oil until July 2017 at which time its 25-year production sharing agreement with Qatar Petroleum expired.The operatorship of the giant Qatari field was taken over by NOC, a 70-30 joint venture company between Qatar Petroleum and French oil major Total.
Mourinho placed little importance on his side topping the embryonic table after Oscar’s second-half strike and John Obi Mikel’s first goal in almost seven years ended a four-match winless streak. The Portuguese merely took pleasure from the fact his side were in close proximity to the five sides he regards as title rivals. “The important thing is not to be top, the important thing is to be there,” Mourinho said. “Where is Man U? Where is Man City? Where is Tottenham? Where is Arsenal? Where is Liverpool? “If they are a long way (ahead) it’s a problem, if we are there, it’s important. “And some of them, they start the Premier League in a brilliant way, we start in a very bad way. “If we start in a very bad way and they start in a brilliant way, it’s good for us.” Asked to clarify his thoughts on Chelsea’s “very bad” start, Mourinho added: “That’s what I read. It was a disaster. I think it was not good, but every one of the two defeats (to Everton and Basle) are not defeats with a conclusion. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho taunted his critics after his side’s 2-0 defeat of Fulham saw them rise to the top of the Barclays Premier League. Since the defeat at Everton last Saturday Mourinho has been reminded of Chelsea’s worst start to a Premier League season since 2003/04, in the early months of Roman Abramovich’s ownership. Coupled with the midweek mishap in the Champions League, a 2-1 defeat by Swiss side Basle, it prompted talk of a crisis at Chelsea, something Mourinho mocked following the west London derby triumph. “You lose a match in the Premier League, you don’t lose the Premier League. “You lose a match in the Champions League (and) you are in a more difficult situation, but you have 15 points to play for.” Mourinho, who insisted he accepts criticism, believes Chelsea are judged differently to their rivals. He added: “All the six teams, we all lost. Every one of us lost a game and it looks like for the others, to lose is a normal thing and it looks like for us it’s the end of the world.” Pundits and fans have been bemused by Mourinho’s continued marginalisation of Juan Mata, the player of the year in each of the last two seasons. The World Cup winner was not in the squad to play Fulham, instead watching from behind the substitutes’ bench alongside David Luiz, who was also omitted. The pair trained on Saturday morning and will feature at Swindon in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night. Mourinho said: “I hope he tells me on the pitch ‘you are wrong, I’m the best and I have to play every game’. “I would love that. I’m waiting for a professional reaction. I want him to be fantastic. I hope he can. “I gave Juan the chance to play from the beginning against Aston Villa, from the beginning against Everton, 30, 35 minutes against Basle. “The past is the past, what matters is now. You have to be judged for what you do now. “I have my options, but the thing that I most love in football is when the players prove that I’m wrong.” Nigeria midfielder Mikel found the net for the first time since January 2007 to make certain of victory. Mourinho, who praised Mikel’s all-round display, said: “It’s good for him, good for us, good for his confidence. “I think people enjoyed seeing John score a goal. The finish was good.” Fulham troubled Chelsea and Darren Bent should have given the visitors a first-half lead, only to fluff his shot. Fulham boss Martin Jol said: “The first 50 minutes they were really worried. They couldn’t find the space, they couldn’t find a solution and that is probably the moment you have to punish them and we couldn’t do that. “The second half they stepped up a gear, they were more aggressive than us and that is what showed.” Jol was not satisfied with the number of chances his side created. “For me it’s not enough,” he said. “If you play the way we played, you have to create more. We will in the future. We needed a little bit more.” The Dutchman also recognised the Cottagers must win again soon. He added: “We need a win to get back to the top 10. I think all the teams in the bottom half, especially now. We’re 17th or 18th, we have to get out of there.” Press Association

You see, Astro is a telescope eyepiece and would like to travel to Greenwich, England…home of the Greenwich Royal Observatory and Greenwich Mean Time! After his trip he wouldn’t mind traveling the world a little more before, hopefully, coming back to his hometown of Portland, Oregon. He knows this may be a very long trip, but he’s ready! So…if you’re traveling East, please take him with you. If you’re traveling West, please let him stay.

Its original goal was to make it to the International Date Line. It did that and then it continued around the globe and made it back into our hands. We kept it for a little while and then let it go again. It traveled around again for quite some time before it got stuck in South Korea where we thought it might have been lost or stolen…but then it started up again and made it the rest of the way around the globe a second time.”At this time Astro the Eyepiece is back home and getting some well deserved rest and relaxation.According to Geramy, “We’re not sure we are going to send it on a third journey or if we are going to let it enjoy a life of retirement after such an active life.

CrazyGAF, schickte den Travel Bug im Jahr 2004 mit dem Ziel auf Reisen: “Astro‘s Mission ist reise nach Osten…den langen Weg nach Osten! Astro ist ein Teleskop Okular und möchte nach Greenwich, England…Heimat des Greenwich Royal Observatorium und der mittleren Greenwich Zeit reisen! Nach erreichen dieses Zieles, möchte er sich noch ein wenig die Welt ansehen, bevor er wieder zurück in seine Heimatstadt Portland, Oregon kommt. Er weiß dies kann eine sehr lange Reise sein, aber er ist fertig für den Trip! Wenn… Du also in Richtung Osten unterwegs bist, bitte nimm Ihn mit. Wenn Du nach Westen reist, dann laß Ihn bitte liegen. Vielen Dank!” –Cacheopia (jetzt CrazyGAF).Die Reise begann als bbmagic Astro das Okular am 14. Februar 2004, aufnahm und wenige Tage später im Cascades Parkway Cache ablegte.Geramy erzählt: “Dies war unser erster Travel Bug, welchen wir auf die Reise geschickt haben. Ursprünglich war sein Ziel, dass er die internationale Datumsgrenze überschreiten sollte. Es tat dies, dann ging es einmal um die Welt und wieder zurück in unsere Hände. Wir behielten Ihn für eine Weile um Ihn dann wieder loszuschicken. Es reiste wieder für einige Zeit, bevor er länger in Südkorea verweilte. Wir dachten, daß er verloren oder gestohlen wurde…aber dann begann er wieder zureisen und vollendete den Weg um den Globus ein zweites Mal.”Momentan ist Astro das Okular wieder zu Hause und genießt seine wohlverdiente Rast.Geramy: “Wir sind uns nicht sicher ob wir Ihn auf eine dritte Reise senden oder ob wir Ihn seine wohlverdienten Ruhestand nach solch einem aktiven Leben genießen lassen. Es scheint so, daß er sich ganz wohl hier in seinem Zuhause in Gresham, Oregon fühlt. Nach allem…er hat die ganze Welt gesehen und ist immer wieder zurückgekommen.”Für weitere Informationen zu Travel Bugs oder um weitere Abenteuer anderer Travel Bugs zu erleben, besuche die neuste Travel Bug–Berichtsseite.ADDITIONAL TRACKABLE STORIES:Zusätzliche Trackable Geschichten:
