Participants will compete on rFactor 2 simulator software from their own homes and in a ‘battle royale’ format where the last placed driver after each lap is eliminated until only 10 remain for a final sprint to the line.Two separate races will be held, one with the regular teams and drivers and the other for ‘gamers and influencers’ who can try and win real-life track time in a Formula E car at a race weekend.One of those aiming to win that prize is British racer Charlie Martin, who also hopes to become the first transgender driver to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.The challenge will be run over nine consecutive weekends, starting with a non-scoring test event on April 18 involving at least 14 current drivers.”I think it’s really exciting to race these guys again, my rivals, obviously from home,” DS Techeetah’s Portuguese driver and series leader Antonio Felix Da Costa told reporters on a conference call.”I’ve been having a lot of fun in the sim [simulator] and all of these challenges are welcome. It’s a great way to keep our minds sharp.”Topics : Formula E launched an esports ‘Race at Home Challenge’ series on Wednesday involving regular race drivers and gamers in the absence of any real track action due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The all-electric series follows other championships, such as Formula One and MotoGP, in using virtual racing to fill the void left by the coronavirus.Formula E’s version also aims to raise funds for UNICEF after the announcement on Tuesday of a partnership with the UN children’s fund’s global coronavirus appeal.

Final piping and instrumentation work on the SM 71 F platform is nearing completion. Production start-up is targeted for March 2018. It is anticipated that the three wells will utilize a high percentage of the SM 71 F platform’s oil and gas production capacity.Otto’s managing director, Matthew Allen, said: “We are pleased with the progress being made by the joint venture operator, Byron Energy, in readying the recent discoveries in SM 71 for first production.“Otto’s approach of investing in ready to drill, close to infrastructure prospects in the prolific Gulf of Mexico has delivered an excellent outcome at SM 71. Otto is working towards adding to the portfolio of opportunities in this region to continue the early success that has been achieved.” The F1 well is the first of three completions to be undertaken on the SM 71 F platform. Otto said that the Ensco 68 was preparing to skid into position over the SM 71 F2 well and completion operations in the B65 Sand would begin immediately. The SM 71 F3 well will be the last well completed for production.Production in March Byron Energy has completed the SM 71 F1 well in the South Marsh Island Block 71 (SM 71) lease in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Louisiana. The well is now ready for production.Byron Energy is the operator of the SM 71 lease with a 50 percent working interest and the other 50 percent interest in the lease is held by Otto Energy.Otto Energy said on Thursday that a 70-foot measured depth interval of the D5 Sand was perforated on February 16 and sand control measures were pumped across the interval on February 18.After rigging down the pumping equipment, 2 7/8″ production tubing was run in the well. All operations were successful, and after a short flow back that recovered completion fluids and oil, the F1 well was shut in by closing a surface controlled subsurface safety valve.The Ensco 68 drilling rig was repositioned over the F1 well and operations to complete the well as a producing well began earlier this month.Otto further said added that no production rates were determined during this phase of the project due to limited oil storage tank capacity currently on location. As each well is hooked into the production manifold and SM 71 lease pipelines, it will be individually tested, and optimal rates will be established based on reservoir pressure drawdown.SM 71 F platform (Image by Otto)
Linlithgow-based Asset Integrity Maintenance (AIM) has been awarded a ‘major contract’ that will help extend the life of ExxonMobil’s jetty facility at Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal in Fife, Scotland.Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal in Fife; Source: AIMThe tanker terminal exports liquefied petroleum gas to Europe and the USA after being produced at the Fife ethylene plant, using feedstock from the North Sea.AIM said on Thursday that the company already started work at the 233-meter long jetty for the first phase of a major upgrade program.As part of the work, a temporary access structure will be used which will be suspended below the jetty and enclose the work area to ensure no environmental impact to the Firth of Forth below.According to the company, the project represents the start of a major investment in the jetty, which handles the shipping of ethylene from the plant to ports in mainland Europe.Jacob McAlister, plant manager at Fife, said: “Adding many years to the operational life of the jetty is an exciting development. It will take our operations into a new era and means we can continue to contribute to the local economy and employ local contractors and personnel.”AIM’s scope of work will focus on the refurbishment, repair and protection of the jetty’s steelwork coating and will use abrasive materials and a vapor blasting technique that are environmentally friendly.Blair McDonald, managing director at AIM, added: “This is an important contract for our company. Our local teams will conduct this key upgrade project in a way that maintains the highest levels of environmental protection. When completed, it will ensure the safety and integrity of the jetty for years to come.”Located on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth, between Dalgety Bay and Aberdour in Fife, Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal began operations in 1984.It is part of the SEGAL system which was primarily created to handle rich gas production from the Brent field and then from the Fulmar field with a steady increase of tie-ins field, operators, and owners over the years.The system is made up of two wet gas transportation pipelines, the St. Fergus gas terminal, Fife NGL terminal, and the Braefoot Bay tanker loading facility.Wet gas is transported from the Northern North Sea along the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) line to St. Fergus and from the Central North Sea along the Fulmar Gas Line (FGL).Spotted a typo?

RelatedPosts Club’s server collapses over ticket demand for first Bundesliga game in 11 years Awoniyi joins Union Berlin on loan COVID-19: Traore withdraws from Spain squad Nigeria striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, said his main aim of going to Mainz 05 of Germany on loan from Liverpool was to improve his game, after which he would return to the Premier League side.The 22-year-old scored his first Bundesliga goal in last Sunday’s 2-2 draw with FC Cologne since arriving the Opel Arena last summer. Despite his limited game time this season, the young striker is confident he has improved and is hopeful he can do same when he returns to Anfield.“Coming here (Germany) is just to make myself better,” he said.“Even without playing for a while, coming in on Sunday shows I’ve really improved since coming to Germany. That’s the goal with being on loan,” Awoniyi told Liverpool FC.“Even when you are not playing, you just have to be ready and keep on improving yourself and wait for your time as well.“I don’t think I’m the same player as I was in the last few years. I personally have seen improvement in my game and I believe most Liverpool coaches have seen that as well. “I just have to be prepared to improve myself and work on my weak points as well. When I’m back at LFC, I hope they will see that.”Tags: BundesligaFC CologneGermanyTaiwo Awoniyi
