Oil & gas— former Alberta PremierWhile consultations and lectures on oil and gas are ongoing, there is a need for more people to be involved in the dialogue. In addition, breaking down technical information, such as safeguards against environmental risks, is important to overall consultations.Former Premier of Alberta, Canada, Alison RedfordThis is according to the former Premier of Alberta, Canada, Alison Redford, QC, who was among the presenters at the inaugural Guyana Oil and Gas Association (GOGA)-sponsored conference and exposition over the past few days.She advised that policy makers take time to ensure that all pertinent information be above board and is understandable to the nation. “When you understand an issue well, you think that everyone understands it as well as you. And I’m telling you, speaking as someone who is not an engineer or a geologist, that there is really technical information about environmental impact and production that the public wants to understand.“And I’m sure (that) over the future, there will be lots of people who will stand up at public meetings and ask you questions that seem absolutely ridiculous to you, cause it seems so easy. So I would encourage you to take the time to build a foundation so that everyone can be a part of the discussion,” she advised.She noted that the public will have concerns because they care about their community, and may have unanswered questions based on what they read in the newspapers and on social media. Redford pointed out that other countries were late in having these frank and encompassing discussions, to the detriment of public relations.She said that Guyana has the opportunity to do better because the populace is capable of exchanging ideas and partly because of the GOGA-backed seminars. Redford observed that GOGA understands who needed to be a part of the conversation.“Political leadership will need to decide what they believe Guyanese want for policy choices. That gap between where political leadership makes the policy and what the rules say can takes different terms. I would suggest that creating the policy is one of the most dynamic and important conversations you can have; but once that policy has been set, I’ve certainly seen the development of rules being more successful when everyone has been involved all along,” she declared.According to Redford, it was not possible for technical experts to develop and set a framework without a different type of engagement with the public. Using Peru as an example, she explained that while policy makers might think their consultations were extensive enough, misinformation can hamper relations at the community and stakeholder level.“Peru has a wonderful set of legislation with respect to consultations with indigenous people. But at the end of the day, they have pipelines in northern Peru (that leaked) that they couldn’t repair because the community does not trust Government enough to (allow Government) come in and fix those leaks.”This is a reference to Peru’s declaration of a state of emergency last year after a pipeline owned by state oil company Petro Peru spilled 3000 barrels of crude oil into rivers. These rivers were a major source of water and food for some indigenous communities.
One of the bigger stories in Portugal towards the end of the summer transfer window, Yacine Brahimi’s transfer to Everton never materialised.The selling club, Porto, were allegedly very keen for a transfer to go through, which is understandable when they had clubs interested and could potentially get €40m for him.Despite many claims of last minute offers that never quite added up, Brahimi eventually remained at the Portuguese side, and has returned to the first team, albeit with a bit less impact than the previous season.This dip in performances has seen his value drop quite considerably, with reports Le Buteur had said he would be available for €18-20m in the summer.Looking at said article, the Algerian website claim that price tag has come from the French and Portuguese media, which we cannot find.Marseille and Roma are said to be very interested in the Algerian winger, and at €18-20m, he would certainly be an affordable option for both clubs, yet would represent a true bargain for a Premier League side.Whether that dip in price is real or not remains to be seen, but taking into account the fact his contract runs out in 2018/19 and his dip in form, he certainly won’t cost €40m.And this could be very good news for Ronald Koeman, who is clearly a fan of the Algerian forward.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

The WRC season resumed after a break of about six months, with the World Cup taking place in Estonia for the first time. Tanaks took the lead in the third stage and did not return it to the finish, although the fastest results were achieved in only three dopos. The closest follower to the finish, teammate Craig Brin, was 22 seconds behind, while Sebastien Ozhie, the overall leader of the championship from Toyota, was third, losing 26 seconds. For last year’s champion, this is the first victory for the Hyundai Motorsport team“I felt a lot of pressure from competitors all weekend and there were a lot of stressful moments that are over,” says Tanaks. “The first stage of the world championship in Estonia was a race in which I definitely had to win. I realized that this would also be my first victory with Hyundai. It was very important to fight it. I couldn’t afford to make mistakes, I couldn’t take the risk, but at the same time I had to drive at a pace to win. It was a big challenge to do everything as needed. ”Everything did not go completely smoothly, because during the penultimate speed stage the athlete experienced a very dangerous moment, as well as on Saturday the first kilometers of the tire.Having also earned extra points for winning the Power Stage, now Tanaks has significantly improved his overall standings, with Leader Ojie just 13 points ahead and another Toyota driver Elfin Evans four. By the end of the season, three more stages will take place in Turkey, Sardinia and Belgium.“We had to take the opportunity to reduce the leader’s lead in the overall standings and, fortunately, we managed to use this opportunity,” Tanaks concludes after the race in Estonia. “I want to thank my whole team, which has worked very hard for the last few months. We must now continue in this spirit, because we have shown what we are capable of. ”WRC overall assessment after stage 4PlacePilotsPoints1.Sebastien Ozier792.Elfins Evanss703.Ots Tanaks664.Kalle Rovanpera555.Terry Neuwil426.Themes Suninens347.Esapeka lapi308.Craig Brin259.Pontuss Tidemands810.Sebastien Leb8Resources used:Motorsport.com: F1 News, MotoGP, NASCAR,…
