I’m concerned that St Camillus’ Community Hospital in the city and St Ita’s in Newcastle West could be caught up in this latest episode of cost overruns on major projects,” Cllr Collins said.Limerick Metropolitan District Cathaoirleach James Collins.Photo: Cian Reinhardt“The overall budget for nursing home improvements nationwide is 81 per cent over budget. We need clarity from the Department of Health and the HSE that St Camillus’ Community Hospital and St Ita’s will not be downgraded or delayed in any way. A new unit for 20 elderly residents at St Ita’s has already been delayed until 2021.“This Government has a well-earned reputation for mismanaging public funds and we now know that the €385 million plan to upgrade 90 State-run nursing homes is 80 per cent over budget and now likely to cost €700 million,” he said.There was no response from the Department of Health at the time of going to print.

Posted on by

first_imgAndy Mossey and Steph Whatton know how to road trip. The couple does it for a living. Mossey and Whatton are a traveling trainer team for Subaru and Leave No Trace, driving across the Eastern U.S., educating schools, camps, and the general public about Leave No Trace principles. They live year round in an Outback and spent 250 nights camping last year. “The best part of living in your car, is you have everything you need to adventure all the time,” says Mossey. “If we have a couple of hours of free time, and we’re in a spot with incredible climbing or trail running, we’re ready to go.” After a year on the road, Mossey and Whatton have dialed in their road trip gear and system. Here, they outline their favorite pieces of road trip gear.Taxa TigerMoth ($12,900)AM: We recently put a trailer on the Subaru.

Equinor to Recover More from Gullfaks

Posted on by

first_imgThe Gullfaks partners have decided to drill seven new wells and thereby improve oil recovery by 17 million barrels.On behalf of the licence partners, Equinor’s executive vice president for Development and Production Norway, Arne Sigve Nylund, presented an amended plan for development and operation (PDO) to the minister of petroleum and energy, Kjell-Børge Freiberg, at the Sandefjord Conference.“Our ambition is to maintain profitable production from the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) for several decades. Wells that can be drilled fast and at a low cost, near existing infrastructure, will be a major contributor,” says Nylund.The wells will be drilled in the Shetland Group, a carbonate reservoir that lies above the main reservoir at the North Sea Gullfaks field.Drilling on Gullfaks is challenging due to the carbonate reservoir. A well test in 2012 proved however that also this reservoir had an oil production potential. The Gullfaks partners have therefore invested more than NOK one billion in production wells in this formation since 2013, which have so far produced more than six million barrels of oil from Shetland/Lista phase 1.As this reservoir could potentially produce more oil by use of water injection, the authorities requested the Gullfaks partners to submit an amended PDO in 2019.The Gullfaks partners (Equinor, Petoro and OMV) are now ready to recover even more resources by use of water injection and new production wells in the Shetland/Lista phase 2 development. A total of seven horizontal wells is planned to be drilled by use of existing drilling facilities on Gullfaks.“These formations that used to pose a challenge are now due to producing at a break-even below USD 30 per barrel – I find that to be a nice bonus from Gullfaks,” says Nylund.The oil from Shetland/Lista is a small contribution to the total Gullfaks reserves, but a major contributor to the remaining field potential.Furthermore, the project deepens our knowledge of carbonate reservoir production, which can be used in other parts of the world.last_img read more

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants more bravery after Norwich draw

Posted on by

first_img Despite Danny Ings’ first goal for the club after coming on at half-time the Reds could not hang on to their advantage with Russell Martin equalising after a mistake by goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, as the Norwich man made a mockery of spending the morning with his wife who gave birth to their third child in Norfolk It was a second successive poor performance at home after the 3-0 defeat to West Ham and with this game signalling the start of four Anfield games in 11 days Rodgers knows they have to start making their home advantage count. “We have got these four games here to get our performance level to where we want them to be,” he said. “Anfield is it is a real special place to play. You have to have courage and bravery to play here. “There is a great history but embrace it. You have to play positive football. “There was a feeling of anxiety when I came in. We made it a fortress. Now we are having to build it again. “I am disappointed and frustrated with the result but I thought the second half there were more signs of fluency and creativity. “We were a bit static when we had the ball in decent positions, the movement in front of the ball wasn’t what we would like. “Second half we freed ourselves up. Danny Ings came on and was outstanding, his ability running in behind was there to see. “It was important to get the first goal, we did, but lost our concentration for their goal. Press Association “We lost concentration and Russell Martin hooks it in so that shouldn’t happen.” On the positive front Daniel Sturridge returned after more than five months out after a hip operation while the displays of Ings and wing-back Alberto Moreno, making his first start of the season, were encouraging. Much has been pinned on the significance of Sturridge’s comeback but Rodgers cautioned expecting too much, too soon. “He is a way off full fitness. His presence and stature will give us something. It is about building his fitness. There is no pressure on him to do that,” he added. Norwich boss Alex Neil was happy with the result, which could have been even better had Mignolet not redeemed himself somewhat with a good save from Matt Jarvis. “I am pleased. Not just with the result, I thought the performance was good,” he said. “We were brave, tried to put our foot on the ball. You need to ride your luck and rely on your goalkeeper, who made some great saves but we could have nicked it at the end when Matt Jarvis had his chance. “I thought we deserved a draw.” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits his side have to play with more bravery at home after another Anfield disappointment. last_img read more
