Oil prices just fell to their lowest in four years

first_img Thursday 27 November 2014 4:21 am The fall in oil prices continues apace. The price of both West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Brent oil fell to $72.78 and $76 per barrel respectively this morning – both four-year lows – as traders nervously awaited the outcome of a meeting of the Opec group of oil-producing countries in Vienna today. The 12-member group is meeting as the price of oil continues to slide on concerns of an over-supply in the next few months. It had been hoped the group would come to an agreement around cutting production by at least one million barrels a day, but that now looks unlikely. Although Saudi Arabian oil minister Ali al-Naimi hinted yesterday Gulf producers – Saudi, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE – had come to an agreement, the consensus is that it probably doesn’t involve a cut in production.Earlier in the day, al-Naimi had said he expected the oil market to “stabilise itself eventually”, suggesting he has enough confidence in market forces to avoid a curb in output for now. But even if a cut is announced, will it be enough to stabilise prices in the long-term? Jameel Ahmad, chief market analyst at FXTM, thinks not.The longer term outlook for both crude and Brent oil is that the commodity will likely continue to trade in a bearish direction in the longer term. Around this time next year, the current forecast is that the Federal Reserve will have begun raising US interest rates, which will not only increase substantial demand for the US dollar but also pressure commodity prices. This is probably another reason why there is hesitation from some to cut production, because fears will resurface regarding oil prices in the future anyway.

CMA CGM introduces Climactive to help control reefer atmosphere

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 07/09/2018 French container shipping line CMA CGM has introduced an advanced controlled atmosphere function in its fleet of reefer containers to maintain fruit and vegetable products in transit.Climactive works by reducing the level of oxygen inside a container equipped with Daikin’s Active controlled atmosphere technology, and is specifically designed for sensitive products which face a long transit time and organic products without preservatives.Eric Legros, CMA CGM vice-president of specialised products and value-added services, said: “CMA CGM continues upgrading its reefer range to better meet customers’ needs and acquire new markets. Introducing Climactive means additional technology is available for the most sensitive commodities in CMA CGM’s controlled atmosphere offer.”The technology allows fruit and vegetable shippers to maintain “product freshness up to final destination, preventing maturation, extend shelf life and preserve quality attributes”.It also gives exporters the option of reaching further destinations and targeting new markets, as well as allowing businesses to maintain a product’s organic label.Climactive aims to reach the optimal O2-CO2 balance in a reefer much quicker than other controlled atmosphere technology and features a nitrogen pump that acts as a barrier against oxygen infiltration, protecting the cargo from excessive ripening.CMA CGM claims it is the second-largest refrigerated container carrier in the world, with a reefer fleet of 385,000 teu and 288,000 reefer plugs across its vessel fleet.last_img read more

News / Evergreen ULCV order will leave THE Alliance far behind rivals in terms of big ship capacity

first_img Evergreen’s new order of 10 23,000 teu ULCVs will bring the Ocean Alliance close to parity with the 2M alliance in terms of the number of 18,000 teu-plus ships in their combined fleet, leaving THE Alliance well behind, according to Alphaliner.The Taiwanese carrier officially confirmed in a stock market disclosure last week an order for the 10 mega ULCVs which are to be built at South Korean and Chinese yards at a cost of $140-$160m a unit.Evergreen has an orderbook of some 566,000 teu, the largest of any of its peers, and on delivery of the tonnage is set to leapfrog rivals ONE and Hapag-Lloyd to take 5th place in the carrier league table.Based on the current orderbooks of all the carriers, by 2022 the 2M is set to operate 62 18,000 teu-plus vessels, supplied equally by Maersk and MSC, which will just shade the Ocean Alliance with its 61 18,000 teu-plus ULCVs, said the consultant.As it stands THE Alliance members Hapag-Lloyd, ONE and Yang Ming, together with HMM from 1 April next year, will only have 24 18,000 teu-plus vessels at their disposal, which includes the 12 23,000 teu vessels that will be supplied by the new South Korean carrier member.It is understood that HMM bringing in these new ULCVs was the major attraction for THE’s existing members who were initially reluctant to consider the government-subsidised carrier for full membership.Nevertheless, assuming the carriers are able to achieve high utilisation levels for the ships, THE Alliance members would appear to be at a unit cost disadvantage against the rival Ocean and 2M alliances.One analyst who The Loadstar spoke to recently suggested that although the unit cost benefit gap narrowed between 18,000 teu and the new mega 23,000 teu behemoths it would still be sufficient for the operators to win market share on pricing.“They are roughly the same size in terms of length overall and deadweight so there is probably not going to be much extra cost if any to operate the 23,000 teu ships so revenue from the higher intake will go straight to the bottom line,” said the analyst.The vast majority of these ULCVs will be deployed on the Asia-Europe trade which will mean that 18,000 teu ships and over will become the new norm and dominate the route.According to Alphaliner data the current average size for a vessel deployed between Asia and North Europe is 15,800 teu, having doubled in the past 10 years.Notwithstanding the exponential growth of the vessels deployed between Asia and North Europe, the alliances were obliged to cancel no less than 42 Asia-North Europe voyages in the first nine months of the year due to soft demand and have also announced further blank sailings and a temporary suspension of a loop in the final quarter.

3 things to know about composting on campus

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail At CU Boulder, composting is easy, convenient and great for our environment. Here are some tips for what and where to compost on campus.Why it’s great to compostHere are just a few reasons to get in the habit of composting:Composting saves landfill space. Compostable items need oxygen, water and mixing to biodegrade. When they’re covered in landfills, this process can’t happen. These items also take up space, making a need for new landfills more quickly.Composting helps fight climate change. When compostable items are covered in landfills, they release methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) into the atmosphere. Methane absorbs the sun’s heat, warming the atmosphere.Composting helps create nutrient-rich soil. Soil created from composting can be very beneficial to local gardens and farms.What you can compostA good rule to start with is if it was recently alive, it can probably be composted. Common items you can compost on campus include food waste, compostable plastics and paper, paper towels and napkins. Earn PIPsDid you know you could earn PIPs when you compost on campus? Look for the PIPs QR codes on compost and recycling bins throughout campus to collect PIPs and get rewarded!Learn MoreWhen composting, do your best to avoid contamination. Make sure the item is labeled compostable or has the right symbol or identifier. Plastic-lined coffee cups and to-go food containers are not compostable. However, many places on campus—including the UMC Starbucks, dining centers, Alferd Packer Grill and The Bakery—provide compostable to-go items.Where you can compostYou can review the full list of buildings with compost on campus. Compost bins are mostly found in restrooms or next to recycling bins in buildings. Having compost in restrooms ensures it gets emptied daily.Composting guidelines on campus are the same as in the city and county of Boulder (it all goes to the same place!). If you live off campus in the city of Boulder, your landlord is required to provide you with composting services under the Universal Zero Waste Ordinance, so ask if you don’t have it. Learn more about composting.Sustainable Buffs is a series brought to you by the Environmental Center.

Gov’t Moving To Relocate Juveniles In Lock-ups

first_imgRelatedGov’t Moving To Relocate Juveniles In Lock-ups RelatedGov’t Moving To Relocate Juveniles In Lock-ups RelatedGov’t Moving To Relocate Juveniles In Lock-ups Advertisementscenter_img Gov’t Moving To Relocate Juveniles In Lock-ups National SecurityMarch 11, 2010 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government is moving swiftly to provide secure accommodation for children being held in police lock-ups due to lack of space in existing juvenile remand centres.Following his announcement in Parliament last week, Prime Minister Bruce Golding received a report from the JDF, on Tuesday, on the timeframe for renovation works to be carried out at Cape Clear, St. Mary.Based on discussions involving the Ministry of National Security, the Child Development Agency (CDA) and following consultations with the Children’s Advocate, steps are now being taken to transfer children from police lock-ups to the former remand centre at Metcalfe Street.This is a highly secure facility which can accommodate all the children now being held in custody. Minor modifications will be carried out immediately to facilitate its use as a juvenile remand centre.It is not possible to place these children in existing remand or correctional centres, as they are already overcrowded. Nor is it possible to house them in places of safety, as these do not offer the required level of security and would expose the children already there to danger.It is to be noted that 47 of the children now in police lock-ups have been charged with serious offences including murder (3), illegal firearm (12), shooting (1), possession of an offensive weapon (2), wounding (9), rape (5), carnal abuse (5), robbery with aggravation (7) and assault (3).The Government fully acknowledges that children ought not to be kept in police lock-ups but in facilities which are appropriate to their status as children, while providing the necessary security as they await the decision of the courts.Every effort is being made to have children in lock-ups relocated within the next few weeks.last_img read more
