About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Tottenham manager Pochettino: I tell Rose to stop thinking so much!by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed the advice he gives to his left back Danny Rose.There was a time when it seemed as though Rose would be on his way out of Spurs.But he has fought back and emerged as their best left back again.When asked about Rose, Pochettino said to the Evening Standard: “Yes. There’s no doubt about Danny Rose’s quality. He’s a great player. “But like all players with quality, he needs to be focused on his job — focus, train and care about yourself and don’t think too much. “I’m always saying, ‘Danny — hey, you’re thinking too much, you need to stop, work and deliver the job we want!’ “When he arrives at the training ground, he asks, ‘What are we going to do? Laps, a training session, a tactical session? Gym or no gym? Shower or no shower? Eat or not eat?’ Stop, relax! “We think for him, but sometimes he tries to think for us. We’ve said, ‘Danny, you spend too much energy in thinking about everything. You need to stop. When you drive home, you can start to think again.'”He spends too much energy and then he doesn’t have energy for what he needs to do. And that is a dangerous situation.”
OTTAWA (660 NEWS) – Premier Rachel Notley took time for a holiday trick in Ottawa.The Alberta NDP projected figures outside of the federal Liberal holiday party that claimed to show how much money is being lost every day because pipelines aren’t moving Alberta oil to world markets.While many are applauding the move seeing this as some grade ‘A’ trolling, others are calling it classless.Well played Premier Notley.— Dan Harris (@danharrisndp) December 13, 2018It isn’t the first time Notley and company have sent not-so-subtle hints to the feds and it won’t be the last time, especially with some bleak forecasts for oil prices going into next year.Cailin Birch is an economist with the Economist Intelligence Unit and one of the authors of a report delving into oil price predictions around the world.She believes with the Chinese and the U.S. economies expected to sputter in 2019, there could be a global price drop for oil.“With 2020 looking like an even more difficult year economically speaking. We are expecting it to feed into prices across the board really as consumption doesn’t look as strong as it has in the past few years.”She noted other global factors at play.“Market conditions have changed significantly since OPEC and Russia agreed to rein in production in November 2016. Unprecedented output restraint from most OPEC countries and Russia, together with unexpected supply crunches from more volatile producers, including Venezuela, Libya and Angola, have brought global oil stocks back down to below the previous five-year average,” she said in the report.While a drop in oil prices in the past five years has fed consumption, she expects that trend to change.“Remembering of course, that for the last few years it has been inflated a bit. The rate of demand growth has been inflated by the fact that oil prices were so low that it gave this kind of boom to consumption growth. We’re not looking at the same situation anymore.”

New Delhi: India’s first east coast LNG import terminal at Ennore in Tamil Nadu will help state-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) fast-track its city gas distribution plans, said Wood Mackenzie. The 5 million tonne per annum (MTPA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) import and regasification terminal, built by IOC at a cost of Rs 5,150 crore, was commissioned earlier this week.”IOC has already secured captive customers for 2 MTPA of capacity. The Ennore terminal will also help fast-track IOC’s city gas distribution plan, as gas from the terminal will be supplied to consumers around Chennai and Madurai,” Wood Mackenzie’s senior analyst Kaushik Chatterjee said in a report. India plans to double its LNG import and regasification capacity to 56.5 MTPA by 2025 to meet the energy needs of a fast-growing economy.

The pipeline from the terminal will go up to Madurai, Trichy and Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu and branch out to Bengaluru via Hosur in Karnataka. Imported gas at the terminal will meet fuel requirement of Chennai Petroleum Corp, Madras Fertilisers, Tamil Nadu Petroproducts and Manali Petrochemicals. Ennore LNG terminal is part of India’s plan to raise the share of natural gas in the country’s energy basket to 15 per cent by 2030 from current 6.2 per cent.

The pipeline connecting the Kochi regasification terminal in Kerala to Mangalore in Karnataka is a glaring example,” Chatterjee said. IOC, he said, has additional plans to connect remaining refineries to gas pipelines, which will likely at least double its gas demand. IOC has signed a 0.7 MTPA contract with Mitsubishi for 20 years, with supply coming from Cameron LNG in the US. “We believe the commissioning of Ennore may also lead IOC to source more LNG directly rather than via Petronet LNG Ltd,” he said. India has four LNG import and regasification terminals on the west coast — 15 MTPA Dahej plant in Gujarat operated by Petronet LNG , Shell’s 5 MTPA Hazira terminal in the same state, GAIL’s 1.2 MTPA plant at Dabhol in Maharashtra and Petronet’s 5 MTPA terminal at Kochi in Kerala. “Indian regas capacity had constrained imports in recent years. Both Dahej and Hazira operated at maximum levels through much of 2018,” the consultancy said.
