Subsea Integration Alliance has been awarded a contract to support the development of BP’s Cypre gas field offshore Trinidad and Tobago, which will be connected to BP’s Juniper platform.

Subsea Integration Alliance is an unincorporated global strategic alliance between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea, the subsea technologies, production and processing business of SLB (formerly Schlumberger).

Announcing news of the Cypre contract on Friday, Subsea 7 said the scope of the contract awarded by the Subsea Integration Alliance was substantial. That means its revenue share is between $150 million and $300 million.

The scope of Subsea 7 covers the concept and design, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a two-phase liquid natural gas connection to the Juniper platform through two pipelines hoses and a collector collection system, as well as surface improvements.

Design, engineering and project management will begin immediately at Subsea 7’s US offices. Offshore installation is scheduled for 2024.

Craig BrossardVice President of Subsea 7 US, said, “We have worked closely with BP and our suppliers early on to help develop and deliver an integrated SPS and SURF solution that optimizes cost and efficiency, to accelerate the first gas.

Olivier Blaringhem, CEO of Subsea Integration Alliance, said: “BP’s Cypre project is an excellent example of our ability to leverage the key strengths of the Subsea Integration Alliance; Subsea 7 with its expertise in the execution of complex EPCI projects and the accelerated distribution of subsea production systems from OneSubsea. Combined, we provide a refined solution that allows for an early first gas. »

On September 24, BP announced that it was pursuing development of Cypre, its third subsea gas development in Trinidad and Tobago, which is expected to begin drilling next year with first gas expected in 2025. The project should have seven wells and subsea shafts and be connected to BP’s Juniper platform, via two new 14 kilometer flexible pipes.

The Cypre gas field is located 78 kilometers off the southeast coast of Trinidad, in the East Mayaro Block, at a water depth of approximately 80 meters. At most, the development is expected to deliver an average gas production of 250 to 300 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd). Production from Cypre will be used to satisfy BP’s existing gas supply commitments.

The Cypre development will access power from Juniper, eliminating the need for additional power generation, allowing generation to be added without increasing BP’s operating emissions.

Is the Low Carbon Web Real? https://pjmagic.net/is-the-low-carbon-web-real/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 20:44:30 +0000 https://pjmagic.net/is-the-low-carbon-web-real/ Online communication represents 7% of the world’s energy supply with Internet technologies, and the daily e-habits of Internet users are responsible for more than 360 million tons of CO2 per year.

Online communication represents 7% of the world’s energy supply with Internet technologies, and the daily e-habits of Internet users are responsible for more than 360 million tons of CO2 per year. And given that the number of active internet users is growing rapidly, the situation is likely to get worse soon. To understand the problem, let’s briefly define the main sources of harm and find out if the Internet can become more environmentally friendly.

spam

Conventional emails are known to be spam. The electricity needed to transmit billions of spam emails sent each year is equivalent to powering two million homes in the United States and generating the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by three million cars.

tricky UX

All social networks generate tons of CO2 annually. The most environmentally friendly conventional service is Twitter: it is estimated that a single tweet has a footprint of 0.02g CO2. However, the impact is still enormous, given the number of daily messages and robots.

One of the most popular social networks, Instagram, is sometimes more harmful: posting a photo emits 0.15 g of CO2, and scrolling for 1 minute on its newsfeed emits 1.5g CO2. These figures result from the complexity of the UX and the central servers used by the company.

Meanwhile, according to Freitag, messages sent via services such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger are a little less carbon than sending an e-mail. The thing is, messengers are widely used on smartphones and have a complex UX.

Online Advertising

Online advertising consumes 20.38 to 282.75 TWh of energy and emits 11.53 – 159.93 million tons of CO2. Moreover, the advertisements persuade people to make excessive purchases which natural damage.

Central servers

The central servers needed by most social networks use more than 2% of the world’s electricity and contribute to 2% of global CO2 emissions, equivalent to the airline industry.

Considering the low-carbon web is a solution that has a simple UX, no ads, and doesn’t need central servers, it becomes real through Utopia P2P, a multi-tool ecosystem that has a messenger, a browser, email and payment system.

How does Utopia work?

Utopia is a third-generation mesh network where each user’s personal device acts as an independent Utopia P2P server. This approach reduces power consumption. Meanwhile, this is not the service advantage. Let us recall its main advantages.

Harmless and Serverless Web Browser

To use a conventional browser safely, a person must install anti-virus software. However, even the most expensive tools do not guarantee complete security, and even MacBooks can be damaged by malware. If a computer cannot work normally, a user will probably buy a new one. Thus, more CO2 will be generated: a study at the University of Edinburgh found that extending the life of a single computer and monitor from four to six years could avoid the equivalent of 190 kg of carbon emissions. Utopia P2P prevents such situations by being spam-free and moderating all websites in the built-in Idyll browser.

In a nutshell, it’s a completely anonymous web browser that works like the famous Tor project. However, Utopia’s proprietary solution is much more convenient to use and has more modern features. Idyll allows you to access websites automatically blocked by classic browsers, as well as sites created directly in the Utopia ecosystem. Nothing in this browser captures users’ IP addresses, collects cookies, or otherwise tracks their location or other personal data.

The next important “green” feature of Idyll is the fact that it is serverless. Officially, a single Google query issues 0.2 grams of CO2. Meanwhile, according to energy tech expert Chris Goodall, a 15-minute Google search generates from 7 to 10g of CO2. Thus, the average annual carbon footprint of grazing is equivalent to 10 million tons of carbon dioxide. If we talk about Utopia P2P, its impact is reduced thanks to the fewer number of web pages added. The ecosystem only lists those carefully checked, allowing them to go without a server.

Eco-responsible authentication

For system authentication, no phone number or email is needed. This approach eliminates the need for authentication emails and SMS, which can impressively contribute to total CO2 emissions.

Green Mining

Although online payments are more environmentally friendly than using cash, they still need to be more sustainable due to central servers. Thus, cryptocurrency is meant to be more respectful of nature. However, in reality, it is invalid due to mining consequences. For example, the carbon emissions of Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency in the world, are equivalent to those of New Zealand, both emit nearly 37 megatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.

Utopia P2P changes the rules by introducing eco-sustainable Crypton mining that saves electricity and requires no additional software or hardware. All a miner needs is a computer.

Low emission instant messaging and email service

As we mentioned above, sending a message through a private messaging app has only a little less carbon footprint than sending an email (a person produces about 3.5 lbs of CO2e in a single day). To reduce the negative impact of online communication on the environment, Utopia provides its users with two eco-responsible solutions: uMail (anonymous alternative to traditional messaging) and uMessenger (decentralized solution for the instant exchange of text messages and voices with the possibility of voice substitution).

They do not require users to enter personal information. However, users can still send regular media, documents, and text messages without worrying about their security. Interception of traffic within this service is excluded – only the recipient will be able to read the sent message.

“Green” crypto exchange and crypto wallet

If you have in your uWallet Utopia the internal cryptocurrency, you can switch to a child product of this platform, CRP.io, to exchange it and earn money. In terms of sustainability, this solution is more optimal, since it is based on a decentralized network, which obviously consumes less electricity than its centralized alternatives. Otherwise, the functionality of this crypto exchange and crypto wallet is similar to other solutions in this industry: they are both anonymous, easy to use and guarantee super-fast withdrawals.

API for green custom solutions

And finally, developers can use the Utopia API to make their projects “greener” by integrating it into a website or any other web-based platform. Thus, they will be able to ensure complete anonymity of all visitors to the created web resource, as well as add all the ecological features described above.

Utopia P2P works like a mesh network. Therefore, it is only responsible for scope three emissions. Its carbon footprint has been assessed via Quantisa reliable greenhouse gas protocol according to which the annual emissions of the ecosystem are 42,500 kg.

This number is low, especially compared to other multifunctional tools like Facebook. For example, in 2020, Facebook generated 38,000 tonnes of CO2and even though it was 94% in 2017, its emissions are still almost 900 times higher than those of Utopia P2P.

The negative impact of using the web can be significantly reduced using Utopia P2P. This low-carbon mesh network saves electricity and allows users to get the most out of modern web tools without harming the environment. You can check it out right now – it’s completely free!

Offloading climate responsibility onto the victims of climate change https://pjmagic.net/offloading-climate-responsibility-onto-the-victims-of-climate-change/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 12:41:21 +0000 https://pjmagic.net/offloading-climate-responsibility-onto-the-victims-of-climate-change/ Environment • November 9, 2022 • Steve Taylor and Nnimmo Bassey In this interview, Nnimmo Bassey, Nigerian architect and award-winning environmentalist, author and poet, talks about the history of exploitation of the African continent, the failure of the international community to recognize the climate debt owed to countries in the South and the United Nations […]]]>

In this interview, Nnimmo Bassey, Nigerian architect and award-winning environmentalist, author and poet, talks about the history of exploitation of the African continent, the failure of the international community to recognize the climate debt owed to countries in the South and the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Egypt in November 2022.

Bassey wrote (as in his book cooking a continent) and spoke about the economic exploitation of nature and the oppression of people based on his first-hand experience. Although he did not often write or speak about his personal experiences, his early years were punctuated by a civil war motivated in part by “a fight over oil, or who controls the oil”.

Bassey took aim squarely at the military-oil complex in the fight against gas flaring in the Niger Delta. This dangerous undertaking claimed the life of fellow activist and poet Ken Saro-Wiwa in 1995.

Seeing deep connections that lead to what he calls “simple solutions” to complex problems like climate change, Bassey emphasizes nature’s right to exist on its own and the importance of living in balance with nature, and rejects the proposition of false climate solutions. that would advance the exploitation and financialization of nature that threatens our existence on a “planet that can do without us”.

Bassey chaired Friends of the Earth International from 2008 to 2012 and served as executive director of Environmental Rights Action for two decades. He was a co-recipient of the 2010 Right Livelihood Award, the recipient of the 2012 Rafto Prize, a human rights award, and in 2009 was named one of Time Magazine’s Environment Heroes. Bassey is the director of Mother Earth Health Foundationan ecological think tank and board member of the Global Justice Ecology Project.

This interview is based on the author’s conversation with Nnimmo Bassey on October 7, 2022. To access the full audio and transcript of the interview, you can stream this episode on break the greenthe website of. Steve Taylor is the press officer for Global Justice Ecology Project and podcast host break the green.

Steve Taylor (ST): Climate change is a complex problem, but there may be a simple solution. What might that look like?

Nnimmo Bassey (NB): Simple solutions are avoided in today’s world because they do not support capital. And capital dominates the world. Life is simpler than people think. So the complex problems that we have today – they’re all man-made, out of our love of complexities. But the idea of ​​capital accumulation has led to massive losses and massive destruction and has brought the world to the brink. The simple solution we need, if we’re talking about warming, is this: leave the carbon in the ground, leave the oil in the ground, [and] leave the charcoal in the hole. As simple as that. When people leave fossils in the ground, they are seen as anti-progress and anti-development, yet they are the real climate champions: people like the Ogoni people in the Niger Delta, the land where Ken Saro- Wiwa was assassinated by the Nigerian state in 1995. Today, the Ogoni people have kept the oil of their territory in the ground since 1993. It’s millions and millions of tons of carbon locked in the ground. This is climate action. This is real carbon sequestration.

ST: Could you talk about the climate debt owed to the countries of the South in general, and to African nations in particular?

NB: There is no doubt that there is a climate debt, even an ecological debt, towards the countries of the South, and Africa in particular. It has become clear that the type of exploitation and consumption that has continued over the years has become a big problem, not just for the areas that have been exploited, but for the whole world. The argument we hear is that if financial value is not placed on nature, no one will respect or protect nature. Now, why was no financial cost imposed on the damaged territories? Why have they been exploited and sacrificed without any consideration or reflection on their value for those who live in the territory and those who use these resources? So if we’re going to go all the way with this argument of putting price tags on nature so that nature can be respected, then you also have to look at the historical harm and damage that has been done, put a tag price on it, acknowledge that it is a debt owed and have it paid.

ST: You discussed in our interview how some policies aimed at tackling climate change are ‘false solutions’, especially those aimed at resolving the climate debt owed to countries in the South and to Africa in particular. Could you talk a bit about the misnomer of the Global North proposals of so-called “nature-based solutionsto the climate crisis that purport to emulate the practices and wisdom of Indigenous communities in ecological stewardship, but actually appear to be an extension of colonial exploitation – rationalizations to allow the wealthier nations responsible for the pollution to continue to pollute.

NB: The narrative has been so cleverly constructed that when you hear, for example, Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD), everyone says, “Yes, we want to do that”. And now we are moving towards “nature-based solutions”. Who doesn’t want nature-based solutions? Nature has provided the solution to the challenges [that Indigenous people have] for centuries, millennia. And now some smart people are appropriating the terminology. So when Indigenous communities say they want nature-based solutions, smart people will say, “Well, that’s what we’re talking about. While they don’t talk about that at all. It’s all about generating value chains and income, completely forgetting who we are as part of nature. So the whole scheme was one insult after another. The very idea of ​​putting a price on the services of Mother Earth and appropriating the financial capital of these resources, of this process, is another horrible way in which people are exploited.

ST: How is REDD negatively impacting local communities on the African continent?

NB: REDD is a great idea, which should be supported by anyone who just looks at this label. But the devil is in the detail. This is done by securing or appropriating or seizing forest land and then declaring it as a REDD forest. And now once that’s done, what becomes essential is that it’s no longer a forest of trees. It is now a carbon forest, a carbon sink. So if you look at trees, you don’t see them as ecosystems. You don’t see them as living communities. You see them as a carbon stock. And that immediately establishes another kind of relationship between those who live in the forest, those who need the forest and those who now own the forest. And so, it is because of this logic that [some] communities in Africa have lost access to their forests, or have lost access to the use of their forests, the way they used [them] for centuries.

ST: As an activist, you have done dangerous work opposing gas flaring. Could you tell us about gas flaring and its impact on the Niger Delta?

NB: Gas flaring, simply put, ignites gas in oilfields. Because when crude oil is extracted in certain places, it can come out of the ground along with natural gas, water, and other chemicals. The gas that comes out of the well with the oil can easily be re-injected into the well. And it’s almost like carbon capture and storage. It goes into the well and also helps extract more oil from the well. So you have more carbon released into the atmosphere. Second, the gas can be collected and used for industrial purposes or for cooking, or transformed into liquefied natural gas. Or the gas could just be set on fire. And that’s what we have, in many places – probably over 120 locations in the Niger Delta. So you have these giant ovens. They pump a terrible cocktail of dangerous elements into the atmosphere, sometimes in the midst of communities [reside]and sometimes horizontally, no [with] vertical stacks. So you have birth defects, [and] all sorts of illnesses imaginable, caused by gas flaring. It also reduces agricultural productivity, up to a kilometer from the kiln location.

ST: The UN climate conference COP27 is approaching in Egypt. Is there hope for real change here?

NB: The only hope I see with COP is hope for what people can do outside of COP. The mobilizations COPs generate at meetings around the world – people talking about climate change, people taking action, and indigenous groups organizing and choosing different farming methods that help cool the planet. People are just doing what they can – that’s what gives me hope. The COP itself is a rigged process that works in a very colonial way, shifting climate responsibility onto the victims of climate change. •

Comment

Winter is to come, and with it the perils of ice storms.

Ice buildup on power lines can wreak havoc, leaving people without heat or power for weeks. At airports, planes can face endless delays waiting to be de-iced with toxic chemical solvents.

Yet now Canadian researchers have found a solution to winter ice problems from an unlikely source: the gentoo penguin.

In a research study out this weekscientists from McGill University in Montreal have unveiled a design for wire mesh, which could wrap around power lines, the sides of boats or even planes and prevent ice from sticking to surfaces without using chemicals.

The scientists were inspired by the wings of gentoo penguins, which swim in the freezing waters near the South Pole and manage to stay ice-free even when outside temperatures are well below freezing.

“Animals have…a very zen way of living with nature,” Anne Kietzig, the study’s lead researcher, said in an interview. “Maybe it’s something to watch and copy.”

These Penguins Found A Camera In Antarctica And Captured A Surprisingly Good Selfie

As climate change creates winter storms After powerful, ice storms wreaked greater havoc. In Texas last year, ice and snow hampered daily life and knocked out the power grid, depriving millions of people of heat, food and water for days and killing hundreds.

Scientists, city officials and industry leaders have long tried to prevent ice storms from derailing winter services. They fitted power lines, wind turbines and airplane wings with de-icing film, or relied on chemical solvents to quickly remove ice.

But those fixes leave a lot to be desired, deicing experts said. Packaging materials do not have a long shelf life. Using chemicals is time consuming and harmful to the environment.

Five days in Texas as millions were left without power amid record cold snap

Kietzig, whose research focuses on using nature to solve complex human problems, has spent years trying to find a better way to deal with ice. At first, she thought the lotus leaf might be a candidate because it naturally wicks away water and cleans itself. But scientists realized that in heavy rain conditions it didn’t work, she said.

After that, Kietzig and his team took a trip to a Montreal zoo, which was home to gentoo penguins. They were intrigued by the penguin’s feathers and developed a collaboration to study the design in depth.

They discovered that the feathers naturally kept the ice at bay. The feathers were arranged in a hierarchical order that allowed them to shed water naturally, while their naturally barbed surfaces reduced ice adhesion, according to Michael Wood, a researcher who worked with Kietzig on the project.

The researchers replicated this design by creating a woven mesh using laser technology. After that, they tested the ice adhesion performance of the mesh in a wind tunnel and found that it was 95% more effective at resisting ice buildup than a standard stainless steel surface. No chemical solvent was needed either, they added.

Fall cold snap to bring wintry feel, snow to some in eastern US

The lattice could also attach to airplane wings, but the gauntlet of federal airplane safety regulations will make this design change difficult to adopt anytime soon, Kietzig said.

Kevin Golovin, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto, said the most attractive part of this deicing solution is that it’s a wire mesh, which makes it durable.

Other solutions, such as anti-ice rubbers or surfaces inspired by lotus leaves, are not resilient.

“They work very well in the lab,” said Golovin, who is not involved in the study. “They don’t translate well on the outside.”

Many want to keep our skin’s youthful glow as we age. But with so many “anti-aging” products on the market, it can be difficult to choose the best solution. Beverly Hills MD Dermal Repair Complex is an easy to use fan favorite. Many reviews of Dermal Repair Complex on the Internet sing its praises. Let’s take a closer look.

What is Beverly Hills MD Skin Repair Complex?

Dermal Repair Complex is a skin care supplement by Beverly Hills, MD designed to refresh the appearance of your skin from within. Unlike many other “anti-aging” products, this one delivers its active ingredients internally. Many Dermal Repair Complex reviews report the appearance of smoother skin texture, less visible fine lines and wrinkles, and a youthful-looking glow.

How does the Beverly Hills MD Dermal Repair Complex work?

As we age, collagen levels in the skin naturally decline. These internal changes can lead to visible signs of aging, such as changes in skin texture, the appearance of wrinkles, frizzy skin and visible pores. By providing ingredients that can help support the body’s production of collagen, Dermal Repair Complex can combat these signs of aging.

What are the ingredients in Beverly Hills MD Dermal Repair Complex™?

Here is the full list of ingredients and a proprietary blend of 620mg and studies to support these ingredients used in Beverly Hills MD Dermal Repair Complex:

  • saw palmetto
  • MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
  • Hydrolyzed collagen
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Vitamins B Vitamins: (thiamin, riboflavin, biotin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate)
  • Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate)

Other Ingredients: Yam Root Extract, Silica, Rice Bran, Hypromellose (capsule)

  • You will find hyaluronic acid and some form of vitamin A in many skin care products. There’s a good reason for that: plenty of research shows their effectiveness in helping repel the appearance of wrinkles and resulting in luminous, glowing skin.
  • Ingredients like saw palmetto and MSM are rarely found in skincare products. These special ingredients help Dermal Repair Complex support the appearance of skin texture and firmness.
  • The collagen in the Dermal Repair Complex comes in a unique form. It’s “hydrolyzed,” meaning its long chain of amino acids are broken down into smaller particles that are easier to absorb. Collagen supplementation can help support skin firmness and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

What makes this Beverly Hills ® product special?

Dermal Repair Complex is distinguished by its flagship active ingredients. Skin-firming ingredients like Saw Palmetto, MSM, Collagen, Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Hyaluronic Acid come together in a formula that is easily digested and used by the body. According to numerous Dermal Repair Complex reviews, the results can revitalize the skin’s appearance from the inside out.
