Awilco notified of LNG carrier charter deal cancellation

first_imgNorwegian LNG transportation provider Awilco said the charter deal for its WilForce liquefied natural gas carrier has been canceled by the charterer. The company noted that the cancellation comes following a collision off Singapore that left the vessel’s hull damaged.Awilco informed that WilForce is currently at a yard in Singapore where repairs are progressing as planned and are expected to be completed by end-August, early September.Awilco said in a statement, that at the time of being struck by the other vessel, the WilForce was employed on a  9-12 month time charter contract which commenced in September 2018.The charterer notified Awilco LNG of its decision to cancel the remaining period of the time charter contract due to the prolonged off-hire period required to repair the vessel.Awilco said this is a right the charterer has in accordance with the charter party terms.To reiterate, based on a preliminary assessment of facts Awilco LNG holds the other vessel fully and completely liable for the collision, and the company expects to recover all costs and expenses, including insurance deductibles, off-hire and lost time charter hire in due course.The WilForce is expected to be available for new chartering opportunities ahead of the seasonally stronger Northern Hemisphere winter period. The company sees the chartering market tightening in the fourth quarter of 2019 on the back of newbuilding deliveries tapering off in the second half of 2019 coupled with most of the new LNG production capacity scheduled for start up in 2019 being commissioned in the second half of the year and of course increased demand ahead of winter. This view is already supported by the current soft rates in the prompt compared to higher rates obtainable for contracts starting in the fourth quarter.last_img read more

Carnival Victory could reconsider its decision to call in Dominica

first_imgLocalNews Carnival Victory could reconsider its decision to call in Dominica by: – October 18, 2011 7 Views   no discussions Benoit Bardouille. Image via: GIS NewsOne of the world’s largest cruise lines which dropped Dominica from its itinerary could reconsider that decision.General Manager of the Dominica Air and Sea Ports Authority (DASPA) Benoit Bardouille says a test call by Carnival Victory in December will determine the future of the cruise line in Dominica.Carnival Victory made its last call to Dominica in November 2010 citing fuel costs and passenger feedback as its main reason. “Ever since we lost Carnival in 2010, we had to take a deep look at what is it that Dominica could do to begin to attract a new business or more businesses for that matter and be able to speak with Carnival to bring the vessel back. We are having one call from the Carnival Victory in December. That’s only one call but based on our discussions this is also a test call for us as well. It tells me that based on our discussions that we are having with them, they will look at some of the issues and they could reconsider. It is important for Dominica to sell what we say we are going to sell when the ship comes back,” he explained.He says a number of major areas must be reviewed prior to carnival victory’s test call in December. “It is a very difficult situation and all of us felt it through the six month period, to be able to go without any business.We were told by Carnival that it was because of fuel but we wanted to look to see what are the things that we probably missed along the way,” he said.According to him, government is still in the process of improving the quality of some of the sites to enhance the visitor experience.“We also want to ensure that we improve the quality and improve experience of the tourists, that they will begin to say to the ships and others that this is the best destination to go to,” he said.There are also issues of expenditure which are being examined, Bardouille explained.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!

Villa fight back to sink 10-man Brighton

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Aston Villa secured a dramatic 2-1 home win over 10-man Brighton & Hove Albion in a gripping Premier League clash on Saturday.This was after left back Matt Targett struck deep into stoppage time to break down the stubborn visitors.The result lifted Villa to 11th place on 11 points from nine games while Brighton, who enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and took the lead through Adam Webster in a pulsating first half, dropped to 16th on nine points.It also stretched Villa’s unbeaten home run against the Seagulls in all competitions to 12 games after they secured back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since May 2015.Villa manager Dean Smith was pleased with the result but not his team’s performance.“It’s nice to get late goals because it wasn’t a top performance,” he said.“It’s great for us to get back-to-back wins for the first time in a long time. We played a good team today who played through us too easily.”Brighton dominated the opening 30 minutes and Webster fired them ahead when he headed home a Pascal Gross free kick at the far post past helpless Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton.The tide turned after Aaron Mooy was shown a second yellow card in the 35th minute for a second crunching foul in quick succession and it did not take the home side long to capitalise on their numerical advantage.Midfielder Conor Hourihane had a goal disallowed by VAR in the 42nd minute before Jack Grealish equalised on the stroke of halftime following a Frederic Guilbert cross, stumbling through to turn the ball in from close range.Brighton had missed chances in the first half as Heaton pulled off several superb saves but it looked like the visitors would hold out for a share of the spoils after their goalkeeper Mat Ryan kept the home side out.Just when the visitors appeared to have weathered Villa’s second-half onslaught, however, Targett rifled in the winner from a tight angle after a fine pass from Grealish gave him time and space to beat Ryan.Brighton manager Graham Potter praised his side for a brave performance.“Our players have real courage and personality,” he said.“I’m so proud of them. Football can be cruel but our fans can see what we’re trying to do.“We were positive but that makes it sorer to concede with the last kick.”Reuters/NAN. Tags: Premier Leaguelast_img read more

first_imgLiverpool manager Juergen Klopp believes it is the right time for the English Premier League to resume after a two-month stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The Premier League hopes to restart its season in June, having been suspended since mid-March. Its plans were given a boost after the government last week opened the door for competitive football to resume.Premier League clubs have been given permission to train in small groups and Klopp said that was the first step in a return to normality.Klopp said: “I always said we don’t want to rush anything, but I don’t think it is rushed.“I hope that we are now in England on the right side of the thing.“It’s all about when – but you need to re-open different parts of life again. “Everybody agrees about that.“I think the way how we do it now with the Premier League, it’s now a good moment to do it for the football teams.“From a personal point of view I can say it’s a massive boost.”Liverpool will begin staggered training sessions this week and Klopp said he is not concerned about the fitness of his players.The German added: “From a physical point of view, the boys are in a good shape, I think. “Then we have to start getting used to the pitch, football boots and balls again.“That’s our job, that’s what we do.“So, we need to get used to that again.”With matches set to be played without fans in the stadiums, the Liverpool boss said his team would have to do without the “best boost in the world”.RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel “We have to do it, unfortunately, without the best kick in your ass in the right moment in the world, from the Anfield crowd,” Klopp said.“But that’s how it is.

It was an unbelievable reaction from the fans, so thank you. I really appreciate your support. It means a lot.” Press Association The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, but it is understood he will not be handing in a transfer request ahead of the window closing on Monday.
