DeepOcean Completes Liwan 3-1 Works Off China

first_imgDeepOcean UK, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding BV, has completed substantial works in China on the Liwan 3-1 Project. Liwan 3-1 is part of the Liwan gas project, 300 km southeast of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, that also includes Liuhua 34-2 and Liuhua 29-1 fields. All three fields share a subsea production system, subsea pipeline transportation, and onshore gas processing infrastructure.DeepOcean commenced works on the project for COOEC Subsea in March 2012. Volantis and UT-1, conducted trenching and survey operations over 160km of the 30” Liwan Pipeline connecting the Liwan Central Platform (CEP) in 200m water-depth to the shore at China National Offshore Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Gaolan gas plant. Prior to trenching, activities included construction works involving crossings along the pipeline route utilizing the WROVs and technicians onboard Volantis to deploy over 100 mattresses along the pipeline in preparation for the lay campaign.  Trenching activities with the UT-1 and dedicated crew achieved burial depths along the route deploying the UT-1 jetting swords to 2.5m below the seabed for trenching of the large diameter pipeline.Upon completion of trenching activities in August 2013 in the shallow water section of the project for COOEC Subsea, Volantis was immediately contracted by Saipem to perform subsea field development activities in the deep water section of the Liwan 3-1 field operating ROVs in excess of 1,400m water depth.  DeepOcean was responsible for various tasks infield working closely with clients to deliver safe and efficient subsea operations.Tony Stokes, Director of Asia Pacific for DeepOcean said: “It was a privilege to be part of such a momentous project in China.

Consumer panel to use FoI requests for lawyer data

first_imgThe legal services watchdog is to use freedom of information requests to extract more data on the performance of lawyers.The Legal Services Consumer Panel said today it wants to publish more information on complaints and service quality of law firms. In its annual report, the panel says it plans in the next year to use FoI laws to ask public bodies for information they hold on the performance of lawyers.Bodies such as the Legal Aid Agency hold peer review scores for legal aid providers, and the consumer panel wants access to this information for use in comparison websites.The Gazette also understands the panel would support a change requiring the approved regulators to be subject to mandatory FoI requirements. Currently requests can be made to the legal services regulators, but there is no obligation on them to respond.Regulators agreed earlier this year in principle to publish data for use legal services comparison websites.The panel’s report said it will work in 2014 to secure successful implementation of a commitment from regulators to release data from their professional registers.Following agreement from the regulators and a request from the Legal Services Board for suggestions as to how it would work, it is understood a meeting was held last month to move the plans forward.Elsewhere in the consumer panel report, on training the watchdog said it will focus on ensuring lawyers ‘remain competent’ and understand the needs of vulnerable consumers. Work will also continue with accreditation schemes to secure improvements.The panel will publish research commissioned with the LSB on online self-help tool and ‘initiate a debate’ on the consumer’s access to online legal services.‘We will consolidate and reinforce our three critical themes of access, choice and better protection for consumers,’ said the report.‘Our primary emphasis in the coming year will be on equality of access. We are also mindful of the need to balance access to justice and the right amount of consumer protection.‘Over-regulation might stifle innovation that could open up legal services to more people, yet consumers are most likely to be active and empowered when they know effective regulatory protections are in place.’The cost of the consumer panel rose in 2014 from £188,100 to £200,605. The increase was largely due to a 7% increase in panel fees and staff costs.The costs of the panel are met by the LSB, which is funded by contributions from the legal profession.last_img read more

New model firm says business as usual despite parent’s administration

first_imgA new-model law firm which received funding from the Welsh government said today it will be unaffected by its parent company going in to administration. Carbon Law Partners, which provides a hosted platform for self-employed lawyers, is going from strength to strength amid the solvent restructuring of its parent, chief executive Michael Burne told the Gazette. Flourish Holdings Limited, which in 2018 acquired 100% of Carbon Law Partners, appointed administrators last month. A statement of administrator’s proposal is due to be published at Companies House in the next few days. Carbon Law Partners was co-founded by City lawyer Burne and banking director Owain Saunders-Jones in 2014. The commercial firm’s model is designed to appeal to lawyers who want more freedom and control over how they build their practices than is possible in a traditional partnership. The Gazette understands that more than 30 lawyers have joined, in Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham and London. In 2015 Carbon Law Partners received a £325,000 grant from the Welsh government to establish its UK headquarters in Cardiff. The funding was part of a drive to attract the legal sector to Wales. At the time, the business said it would create 25 jobs in Cardiff.Flourish Holdings, incorporated in April 2018 as a private limited company, acquired Carbon Law Partners in the same month. Following the deal, 2% of the shareholding was gifted to staff. Its last accounts, for the year ending 31 March 2019, show it had two employees and an operating loss of £10,025. Current assets stood at £1.37m.Non-executive chairman Geoffrey Miller resigned on 6 December after barely six months in post, along with director Anthony Cherry, a former senior partner with DAC Beachcroft.Burne said that further details of the restructuring would be released shortly.last_img read more

Missouri House passes Dairy Revitalization Act

first_imgThe Missouri House of Representatives has passed the “Missouri Dairy Revitalization Act of 2014” (HB 1326) by an overwhelming vote of 137-4. HB 1326 is sponsored by Representatives Casey Guernsey (District 2) and Bill Reiboldt (District 160). The bill now awaits consideration by the Missouri Senate.advertisementadvertisementThe act would appropriate up to 40 percent of the sales tax revenue generated in the state from the sale of dairy products, according to an online description of the bill. The appropriated money would go into a fund to help Missouri dairy producers pay for federal margin insurance premiums.The act would also create scholarships for students who commit to working in Missouri’s agriculture industry and provide annual risk management training for Missouri dairy producers.In addition, the University of Missouri’s commercial agriculture program would be directed to conduct an annual study of the dairy industry and develop a plan for how to grow and enhance the dairy and dairy processing industries in Missouri.The Missouri Dairy Association issued a statement about the bill. The document quoted Larry Purdom, president of the Missouri Dairy Association (MDA) and a dairy farmer from Purdy:“We are very pleased our Representatives recognized the plight of Missouri’s dairy industry in meeting the need for local milk for our 15 dairy processing plants.advertisement“With the loss of dairy farms continuing in Missouri at an alarming rate due to drought and poor margins, the pressure of finding local milk for our plants has reached a critical stage. One plant closed last year at Monett with the loss of 60 jobs.”“We too were pleased with this vote,” said Ted Barlows, president of the Missouri Dairy Products Association (MDPA) and Sales Manager for Hiland Dairy in Springfield.“Concern for job stability and economic activity are huge factors behind passing this bill now.“A University of Missouri study showed in 2011 that Missouri’s dairy product manufacturing industries directly employed 5,515 workers with a total state payroll of $258 million. Missouri’s dairy manufacturing plants produced an estimated $4.4 billion worth of dairy products.“Missouri’s dairy product manufacturing industry revenues translated into statewide total economic output worth $7.7 billion. When you include the jobs, created at the farm level and with additional suppliers, a total of 23,297 jobs were supported providing $1.2 billion in labor income to Missourians in 2011.“Missouri’s gross domestic product (GDP) was $2.0 billion larger due to the value added by Missouri’s dairy product manufacturing industries,” says Barlows.
