As Liverpool Benteke signing nears, trust Mario Balotelli to respond like this!

first_imgYou’ll Never Walk… at all.That could be Mario Balotelli’s new motto, judging by his latest adventure.The Liverpool striker has been spotted riding a segway around a shopping centre, as not many people, let alone elite athletes, do. If only Balotelli could entertain Liverpool fans by regularly scoring goals, which might justify his reported £110,000-a-week wage.The Italian – four goals in 28 games for the Reds – also made headlines earlier this week for defending Raheem Sterling.Liverpool are keen to get rid of their flop, signed last summer for a fee of £16m, with Christian Benteke set to sign from Aston Villa for £32.5m any day now.With the Reds on tour in Asia, Balotelli has remained in England as his employers do their best to find a buyer.Chief executive Ian Ayre will need to get a move on if he’s going to sell the Anfield outcast. Forget the segway, Ayre might want to dust off his infamous Harley.last_img read more

Easing pipeline congestion lets Western Canada producers enjoy higher oil prices

first_imgCALGARY, A.B.  – Canadian oil producers are pocketing higher profits as a rise in world oil prices meshes with an improving supply-demand balance that has reduced the price discounts they faced earlier this year.Analysts say temporary shutdowns at Alberta oilsands projects for scheduled maintenance this spring have eased the pipeline congestion that had been exacerbating the difference between bitumen-blend Western Canadian Select and New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude prices.That means the oil producers, some of whom cut back output in the first quarter because of poor prices, are seeing benefits from WTI prices that rose to three-and-a-half-year highs above US$71 per barrel this week following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. “The rally in WTI has some fundamental support and is not all related to Iran and Venezuela,” energy analyst Randy Ollenberger of BMO Capital Markets pointed out in an email on Friday.“Demand is clearly improving … A further drop in Venezuela production is also a real possibility that could provide a further boost to prices.”Iran is the third-largest producer of crude within the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, exporting about 2.6 million barrels per day in April. Prices rose this week on speculation that its exports could be interrupted if sanctions are reapplied by the West.Global oil prices are also being supported by factors including sliding heavy oil production from Venezuela, which is wracked by political instability, and strong adherence to production limits from OPEC and Russia under their 2016 agreement, said Kevin Birn, vice-president of the North American crude oil markets for IHS Markit.“Western Canadian producers, any higher price is unambiguously good for them,” he said.“The situation on pipelines has temporarily been resolved, primarily because of the upstream outages and (maintenance) turnarounds going on, which is allowing the system to clear… and hopefully allowing time for rail to come in.” (THE CANADIAN PRESS)center_img Uncertainty continues to plague proposed new pipelines. The Keystone XL project from Alberta to Texas has been delayed, the future of an expanded Trans Mountain line to Vancouver is in doubt and a routing dispute has emerged over Enbridge Inc.’s Line 3 export pipeline replacement project.Birn said the WCS-WTI discount, which closed at US$19.73 on Thursday, narrowed to an average of about US$12 per barrel last year due to demand in North America for heavy oil but rose quickly after November due to pipeline constraints. It peaked at about US$30 per barrel in the first quarter.The discount is expected to return to more typical levels of about US$15 _ accounting for the difference in quality versus WTI and transport to market _ this spring but will likely rise to US$17-$19 per barrel later in the year because of the higher price of shipping crude by rail, he said.Ollenberger agreed the discount will rise in the second half of the year, noting that new production from Suncor Energy Inc.’s Fort Hills oilsands mine as it ramps up to its 194,000-barrels-per-day capacity will be added to existing oilsands output as the maintenance shutdowns end.last_img read more

India Britain in talks to build copycat Naval supercarrier

first_imgLondon: The UK is in talks with the Indian government on building a new state-of-the-art aircraft carrier along the lines of Britain’s HMS Queen Elizabeth as part of the ongoing ‘Make in India’ negotations, according to a media report. The talks are under way for the Indian Navy to buy detailed plans for the 65,000-ton British warship to build a so-called “copycat supercarrier” to be named INS Vishal in 2022. “An Indian delegation has already visited Rosyth dockyard in Scotland where HMS Queen Elizabeth was assembled and where a second supercarrier, HMS Prince of Wales, is now being built,” the ‘Sunday Mirror’ reported. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report”If a deal can be agreed, the new warship would be built in India but UK companies could supply many of the parts,” it claims. The report notes that such a new Naval carrier would serve alongside India’s 45,000-ton carrier INS Vikramaditya bought from Russia in 2004 and the future 40,000-ton INS Vikrant and could give India a larger carrier fleet than Britain. “We have regular discussions with India on a range of equipment and capability issues. It would be inappropriate to comment further,” UK Defence Minister Stuart Andrew said, declining to comment on the reports. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsThe design for UK aircraft carriers is owned by the British and French aerospace giants BAE and Thales. “Discussion have begun with India. The design can be modified to meet Indian Navy and local industry requirements,” a BAE spokesperson said. The reported India-UK Naval deal would follow the sale of Britain’s Falklands War carrier HMS Hermes to India in 1987, which was renamed INS Viraat and decommissioned two years ago.last_img read more
