The State Logistics Agency (Bulog) is seeking the government’s approval to import 200,000 tons of sugar to stabilize prices during this year’s Ramadan, which will begin in late April.The agency’s director for operations and public services, Tri Wahyudi, said in Jakarta on Wednesday that the sugar price, which had exceeded the government’s current price ceiling, was expected to further increase during the fasting month when food consumption is far higher than on normal days.Imports, he said, were needed in order to increase the supply in the market because the sugarcane in the country could only be harvested after Idul Fitri, a celebration that comes after a full month of fasting. “The sugarcane can be harvested after Idul Fitri. So we propose an import of 200,000 tons. It is sugar for consumption, not raw sugar for industries,” Tri was quoted by Kompas as saying.Tri acknowledged that the agency had received requests from various parties to import sugar because they feared the price increase would continue if Bulog did not increase the supply in the market.”We have submitted our proposal to import sugar to the coordinating economic minister. We need to import to stabilize the price,” he added.At present the sugar price has reached Rp 4,000 per kilogram, exceeding the government’s price ceiling of Rp 12,500 per kilogram.In 2018, Bulog did not import sugar because it had around 400,000 tons of sugar stocks ahead of Ramadan.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Equinor consent to use the facilities on the Tordis and Vigdis fields, located in the North Sea off Norway, beyond the approved lifetime.Source: EquinorThe consent granted by the NPD follows the one granted earlier this week by the offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA).The directorate said on Thursday that Equinor’s applications refer to the basis for continued safe and profitable operation of the fields after the consents expire in December 2019 and March 2024, respectively.Tordis has secured consent until December 31, 2036 and Vigdis until December 31, 2040. This means that the facilities will operate for a total of 34 years longer than originally presumed, the NPD noted.“Utilization of the facilities on Tordis and Vigdis beyond the original lifetime will contribute to increase value creation on the Norwegian shelf, and that’s good resource management,” said Arvid Østhus, Assistant director, Development and operations, Northern North Sea.Equinor is the operator of both fields, which are located in production license 089 in the Tampen area in the northern part of the North Sea. Statfjord, Snorre and Gullfaks are the closest neighbors.Tordis is developed with a central subsea manifold tied to the Gullfaks C platform. Seven separate satellite wells and two subsea templates are connected to the manifold. Vigdis is developed with seven subsea templates and two satellite wells which are tied to the Snorre A platform.Tordis has produced since 1994, and a subsea multiphase pump was installed in 2007 to increase recovery from the field. Vigdis started producing in 1997, and the plan is to also install a subsea multiphase pump on this field in 2020.Current licensees on both fields are Equinor, Petoro, ExxonMobil, Idemitsu Petroleum, and DEA Norge.Spotted a typo?

0Shares0000Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has been tipped to win the Premier League Golden Boot by his manager Maurizio Sarri © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 17 – Eden Hazard can score 40 goals this season and win the Premier League Golden Boot, according to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after the Belgium forward scored a hat-trick to maintain the club’s perfect start to the season.Sarri believes Hazard can become the best player in Europe and outstrip even arch poachers Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah following his three goals in a 4-1 victory against Cardiff on Saturday. “We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals,” said the former Napoli manager. “He has to improve some things, but he can do it.”Hazard himself has hailed Olivier Giroud as the world’s best target man after the World Cup-winning striker laid on two goals for him.Giroud is yet to find the net for Chelsea this season but already has three assists in five Premier League games while Hazard has found the net five times.And the 27-year-old paid tribute to the Frenchman for creating his first two goals at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.“Olivier’s a target man, maybe the best in the world, I think so,” said Hazard.“When he gets the ball he can hold the ball and we can go in deep with him, so for us it’s a pleasure to play with him.”Despite Chelsea’s fluency in attack, Sarri is aware the Stamford Bridge team must improve their defending.The Italian boss wants to turn Chelsea into the best team in England but says Liverpool and defending champions Manchester City will be the league’s pacesetters.“Eight players joined us this summer,” he said. “So I think it’s normal that in this period we have some defensive problems. We can cope with the problems with the quality in the offensive phase, but not in the defensive phase.“So I have to organise better the defensive phase and the players have to understand that. I think my opinion in this moment, two teams, Liverpool and Manchester City, are better than us.“We have to improve step by step. My target is to become the best team in England in one year, 18 months. That’s the target.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
