It will have the capacity to process up to 70,000 barrels per day of oil and 4 million cubic meters of natural gas. The other FPSO for the Marlim revitalization project is the Marlim 1.

Also worth noting, Yinson and Sumitomo Corporation announced their intention to collaborate on the Marlim revitalization project back in March 2019 in the event of a successful bid by Yinson. On Monday, Yinson added that there would be no extension of the term of the charter under the contracts.center_img According to the FPSO provider, the date of final acceptance under the contracts is expected in the first quarter of 2023. Yinson won two letters of intent from Petrobras in October 2019 for the charter and operation of the Marlim 2 FPSO for the Marlim revitalization project in Brazil. The company said at the time that the estimated aggregate value of the contracts was equivalent to $5.4 billion. The contract period is for 25 years from the date of the final acceptance. Yinson said last week that its subsidiaries Yinson Production Pte Ltd, Yinson Boronia Production B.V., and Yinson Boronia Serviços de Operação Ltda, had now entered into definitive contracts with Petrobras for the Marlim 2, under the same terms as stated in the letters of intent from October 2019. Marlim 1 will be MODEC’s 16th project for Petrobras and will be chartered for 25 years. The 15th FPSO order for MODEC from Petrobras was for Búzios 5 field. It was ordered back in June 2019.last_img read more

Golden State Warriors make it 51 straight at home, beat L.A. Clippers

first_img“Man, me and J.J. had a lot of shots that we would love to have over again,” he said. “They didn’t go down. I think it’s going to be tough for us to win if me and J.J. can’t throw it in the ocean.”Redick could not agree more.“Yeah, we have to shoot the ball better, obviously, for us to play well offensively,” he said. “I thought we got great shots, not just Chris and I, but our team. I thought the way we moved the ball against their (defensive) switches was great.”The Clippers are 43-27 and will limp home 1-4 on the road trip that also included losses at San Antonio, Memphis and New Orleans; the win was at Houston.Perhaps the player with the most energy Wednesday was the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan. He had 19 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks.“I thought DJ was the most dominant player on the floor overall,” Doc Rivers said.The Warriors were led by the Splash Brothers, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Curry scored a game-high 33 and Thompson had 32. Curry shot 12 of 23 overall, 4 of 10 from 3-point range. Curry had shot 3 of 21 from deep his past two games.“I never felt like that in the first place,” Curry said when asked about a long-distance slump. “It’s a long season. Everyone goes through a couple of ups and downs. It’s a lot of games.“You just have to stick it and I feel like I can still play better, so I’m looking forward to what’s coming up.”Thompson shot 7 of 10 from beyond the arc.Austin Rivers scored 16 off the bench for the Clippers.As for the Warriors, they are faced with the task of deciding when to sit players down the stretch, whether it’s strictly for rest or because of a nagging injury. It’s not an easy deal for coach Steve Kerr because his team is trying to both secure the No. 1 seed in the West as well as chase the best regular-season record of all time.The Warriors began play four games ahead of second-place San Antonio in the West. Kerr said that before he thought it was too early to talk about this situation. With only three weeks left in the regular season, the time has come.“Now we’re right there,” Kerr said. “We need to win 10 to set the record; that’s pretty enticing. It’s really the players’ record. I know they want to get it, so we’ll act accordingly.“If the players want to go and they’re fine physically, we’ll probably play them. If we see something, if there’s an injury, somebody’s nicked up and we could potentially cause harm, then we’ll sit that player down.” “It was a little more than that,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said when asked if the poor shooting of Paul and Redick was why his team lost. “I mean, they got great looks. If I had to go in before the game and look at the shots that they both had, I’m taking almost every one of them. They just had one of those nights that it wouldn’t go in for them.”Somehow, the Clippers trailed by just two (51-49) at halftime. They were behind, 81-72, after three quarters. But after getting down by 16 at 90-74 with 9:06 to play, the Clippers pulled within seven points (90-83) on two free throws by Austin Rivers with 7:20 left. That was as close as they would get.“There were times when we were still right there,” Doc Rivers said. “We had the stretch where we cut it to seven, I think, and I think we had five defensive mistakes in a row. And that’s the only time I got, like, heated. I don’t mind if a team scores. You just can’t have those breakdowns.“In the playoffs, it comes down to a single possession and we had too many single possessions where we made mistakes. But overall, listen, I liked how we played, I loved their energy.”Paul had no problem putting the onus for the defeat on himself and Redick.

Redick and the Warriors scored a 114-98 victory on Wednesday night before a sellout of 19,596 at Oracle Arena.Chris Paul scored just two points in the first half, 13 overall on 4 of 16 shooting; 1 of 6 from 3-point range. Redick scored only nine points on 4 of 13 from the field; he also was just 1 of 6 from deep.It was too much to overcome against the best team the league has seen in some time. The Warriors are 64-7 and with 11 games to play. They still have a shot at putting together the best regular season in history. That currently belongs to the Chicago Bulls, who went 72-10 in 1995-96.last_img read more
