This year’s tournament suffered through a prolonged stoppage because of the pandemic. Turner was also already operating as a lame duck, given that CBS takes over in the fall of 2021. Plus, Turner originally cut its UEFA deal in 2017 as a way to build up its streaming service B/R Live. It has since folded B/R Live into the Bleacher Report app.”Below are all of the details on how to watch Champions League games in the U.S., plus a complete broadcast schedule for all matches through the Aug. 23 Final.How to watch Champions League games in the USACBS was supposed to take over the exclusive English language rights for Champions League matches starting in 2021, but it did so ahead of schedule after Turner Sports prematurely ended its deal in June.

Sasol set to go big in Louisiana, USA

first_img5 December 2012 South African energy and chemicals company Sasol is set begin the front-end engineering and design phase for a gas-to-liquids plant it is planning to build in Lake Charles, southwest Louisiana in the United States, the company announced on Monday. The project will provide the opportunity to beneficiate the gas reserves in the USA by leveraging Sasol’s gas-to-liquids (GTL) experience and technology, according to Sasol’s chief executive officer, David Constable. “Through our innovative energy and chemicals technologies, we will provide the United States with world-class, cleaner-burning fuel, contribute to the country’s energy security, boost downstream manufacturing capacity and diversify the utilisation of domestic gas resources,” he said. The gas-to-liquids facility will be the first of its kind in the USA and will produce four-million tons annually or 96 000 barrels per day (bbl/d) of high-quality transportation fuel, including GTL diesel and other chemical products.‘Largest single manufacturing investment’ “This project will be the largest single manufacturing investment in the history of Louisiana and it also represents one of the largest foreign direct investment manufacturing projects,” said Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Project costs for the facility are estimated to be between US$11-billion and $14-billion. “The GTL project will be delivered in two phases, with each phase comprising 48 000 bbl/d,” Sasol said. “The first phase is planned to come into operation in the 2018 calendar year and the second phase the following calendar year.”World-scale ethane cracker Also part of the project are plans to build a world-scale ethane cracker, which will allow Sasol to expand its ethylene derivatives business in the United States. “The cracker will also benefit from the current low US natural gas prices and the abundance of ethane,” Sasol said. Project costs are estimated to be between $5-billion and $7-billion. Both the GTL facility and ethane cracker are expected to create at least 1 200 permanent jobs and 7 000 construction jobs at peak. “Sasol envisions a game-changing partnership with the State that could yield significant benefits not only for our company but for the company and the community,” Constable said. Sasol also announced its plans to adopt a phased approach to the next stage of its GTL facility planned for western Canada. The feasibility study was completed in 2012 and the regulatory application and land procurement processes are under way. “However in accordance with the need to prioritise Sasol’s growth portfolio, this investment opportunity will be phased after the integrate Lake Charles GTL and cracker projects,” Sasol said.

Navios Containers Benefits from Larger Fleet

first_imgzoomIllustration. Source: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Monaco-based boxship owner and operator Navios Maritime Containers has seen its revenues rise in the first quarter of 2019 due to a larger fleet operating during the period.Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was USD 31.8 million, as compared to USD 29.9 million reported in the same quarter a year earlier.TCE per day declined to USD 12,217 from USD 15,259 reported in the first quarter of 2018, primarily as a result of the expiration of contracts between the two periods.Net income for the quarter was at USD 0.1 million compared to USD 3 million reported a year earlier. The change was due to a USD 3.7 million decrease in EBITDA, USD 2.2 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net related to the financing of new vessels; and USD 0.5 million increase in amortization of deferred drydock and special survey costs, in each case, relating to the increase in the size of the fleet.“In a little more than two years, Navios Containers grew its fleet to 30 containerships, acquiring the fleet for a price close to the related scrap value,” Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said.“Most recently, Navios Containers acquired two 2011-built 10,000 TEU containerships for USD 105 million, reflecting a 30% discount to newbuild parity. These containerships are on long-term time charters at around USD 27,000 per day that should generate cumulative EBITDA of USD 35.2 million,” Frangou added.last_img read more
