first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs appeared to have solved that dreaded problem scoring.Now the two-time Kootenay International Junior Hockey League finalist has added some grit in front of the net, which could make finding goals even easier.Leaf coach and GM Chris Shaw announced Thursday the team is getting a bigger presence in front of the net after the team acquired 6’2”, 190-pound Evan Moir from the Calgary Canucks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.The acquisition of Moir comes on the same weekend that Shaw is getting back 6’2”, 200-pound winger Cody Abbey back from a shoulder injury.“Evan is a power forward that’s a good fast skater who can carry the puck and has a good physical presence on the ice,” Shaw told The Nelson Daily Thursday. “And now that we have Cody Abbey back also, it should make a big difference for us.”The on-again, off-again Leafs appear to be back on after racking up a pair of wins. The first win was not totally unexpected against Grand Forks. However, Sunday’s win in Spokane over the red hot Braves was a victory that could provide the Leafs with some much-needed confidence as the squad attempts to climb the Murdoch Division standings.“We got back to the basics in practice and put in some hard work,” Shaw explained. “I’ve always been a believer you play the way you practice so we put our hard hats on, did some dryland and it paid off for us.”The dedication to detail combined with a few changes on the power play allowed the Leafs to snap out of a 1-for-31 slump with the man advantage.“We changed some things as far as entering the opposition zone differently,” Shaw said. “Once in the zone the guys were really passing the puck around and had some good finishing.”The Leafs hope to extend the streak a few more games than two when the club plays host to Kimberley Dynamiters Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sunday it’s off to Spokane once again for an afternoon contest against the Braves.LEAF NOTES: Kyle Alexander’s stay in Nelson was brief after Shaw sent the former Flin Flon defenceman to Helena, Mont. of the Northern Pacific Junior Hockey League for future considerations. Alexander played only two games in a Leaf jersey . . . Two Leaf players, forward Tanner Burns and Colton Malmsten, will see action Friday for the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL. The Smokies host the Victoria Grizzlies in Trail. Both players will return to the Leafs for the two weekend [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher has called on the government and An Post to reverse their decision to close the Kilcar Post Office at the end of the month. It comes following last week’s decision to close the only post office in the entire Parish of Kilcar.And now, the Donegal Deputy has urged the Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh to personally intervene and save Kilcar Post Office. He said: “I am calling on Minister McHugh to use his cabinet influence for the greater good of the people of Kilcar and reverse this decision of closing the local post office.“The survival of Kilcar Post Office is key to the overall future development of the parish, as both locals and tourists depend on it along with the numerous businesses located within the community,” he added.“The original package, which is facilitating the closure of Kilcar Post Office, was agreed by and signed off on by the very government and cabinet of which Minister McHugh is a member of.“Whilst the scheme of post office closures may have been agreed with by An Post members and the present government – it certainly never had the backing of the general public or communities such as Kilcar and the various other areas which have already lost their post offices since this government has allowed this scheme of post office closures to be implemented,” Gallagher said. Deputy Gallagher said that the decision had come as a huge shock to the entire community in Kilcar.“The post office is the only one in the entire Parish with a population of around 1,740 people, notwithstanding the importance of the post office to numerous businesses in the area that depend on the post office for dispatching their goods and services.“This closure of the Kilcar Post Office by the An Post and government back scheme of closures is going to leave a devastating effect on Kilcar and similar to other closures elsewhere it is ripping the very hearts out of our rural communities.“This scheme of post office closures was introduced without any consideration for the long-term consequences for people, business or future development prospects of areas and communities,” he added.“Minister McHugh as a Cabinet Minister and a TD for Donegal has a duty of care and responsibility to intervene in this closure and ensure that Kilcar Post Office is saved for the entire Parish. “I understand that other locations for the post office can be found in the village,” Gallagher continued.“It is a matter for the government and An Post to now come together and find a solution to avoid the devastating effects of this post office closure in Kilcar.”Calls for Kilcar post office closure to be reversed was last modified: June 17th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:An PostJoe McHughkilcarPat the Copelast_img read more

first_imgzoom Singapore-based Keppel Shipyard has secured a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel conversion contract from Dutch oil and gas services provider SBM Offshore.Under the contract, the shipbuilder is to convert a very large crude carrier (VLCC) into an FPSO, which upon completion, will be deployed to the Liza field, located 193 km offshore Guyana in the Stabroek block.The shipyard’s work scope includes refurbishment and life extension works, such as the upgrading of living quarters, fabrication and installation of spread mooring systems, as well as the installation and integration of topside modules.Keppel informed that the converted FPSO will have a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels of crude oil and will be capable of producing up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day. The vessel will have a gas treatment capacity of circa 170 million standard cubic feet per day and a water injection capacity of circa 200,000 barrels of water per day.The company added that the deal is not expected to have a material impact on the net tangible assets or earnings per share of Keppel Corporation Limited for the current financial year.last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – Cenovus Energy Inc. said Thursday it has been running its oilsands operations at reduced production rates and storing excess barrels due to wider-than-normal light-heavy oil price differentials and pipeline capacity constraints.The company has been operating its Christina Lake and Foster Creek facilities at reduced production levels since February, CEO Alex Pourbaix said in a statement.“We’re taking steps to respond to a critical shortage of export pipeline capacity in Western Canada that is beyond our control and is having a negative impact on our industry and the broader Canadian economy.”The company has resorted to using its significant oil storage capacity because Canadian heavy oil is selling at a wide discount to West Texas Intermediate. It plans to sell the crude when pricing improves, he said.Cenovus stock closed down 5.56 per cent at $10.88 per share on a day that saw broad declines on the Toronto Stock Exchange.But the move is a “sensible commercial decision” in the face of a challenging set of pricing conditions, RBC analyst Greg Pardy wrote in a note.Cenovus is also evaluating opportunities to optimize the scheduling of maintenance and holding talks with rail providers to resolve a shortage of locomotive capacity.Railways have been hesitant to add oil shipping capacity because they fear the business will evaporate once new export pipelines come on stream, and are demanding long-term take-or-pay contracts and higher rates to take on the risk.The limited capacity and cautious stance led Barclays Capital analyst Paul Cheng to increase his WCS-WTI differential price forecast by US$4.50 to US$24.60 per barrel from US$18.40 per barrel from 2019 to 2022, when more pipeline capacity is expected to be online.First Energy analyst Mike Dunn said in a note that while there is some uncertainty on timing and scale of crude-by-rail increases, he continues to expect differentials to narrow as crude-by-rail picks up around midway through this year.Railway shipments have been hampered over the winter because of a combination of harsh weather and a bumper crop, leading to shipping backlogs, he said.National Bank Financial analyst Travis Wood said in a note that he still expects rail to have a marginal effect on increased crude exports this year given the limited locomotive capacity.He said that pipeline maintenance has added to capacity constraints and forced Alberta heavy oil storage to record highs, which will result in weak pricing that may continue on past the first quarter.Cenovus noted that while its strategy may result in fluctuating production from month to month, it continues to expect full-year oilsands volumes for 2018 to be within guidance of 364,000 to 382,000 barrels per day.First-quarter oilsands production is expected to be between 350,000 and 360,000 barrels per day.Companies in this story: (TSX:CVE)last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock index closed down despite a rising crude oil price and strong performance from gold and metals stocks a day after Barrick Gold Corp. announced a deal to buy Randgold Resources.“We think the Barrick Randgold merger announced yesterday probably woke up some interest in the gold sector,” says Patrick Bernes, a portfolio manager for CIBC Asset Management.Base metals led the TSX, gaining about one per cent, following by the health-care, gold materials and industrials sectors.“The bid we’re seeing in base metal stocks likely reflects a bit more comfort that the trade war may not cause too much damage to global growth,” he said in an interview.The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 47.82 points at 16,159.50, after hitting a low of 16,159.50 on 237.4 million shares traded.The consumer discretionary sector led on the downside, driven by autoparts companies Martinrea International, Magna International and Linamar Corp.Bernes attributed the companies’ share losses to higher commodity prices and ongoing unresolved NAFTA issues.Crude prices rose for a fourth-straight day with the November crude contract rising 36 cents at US$72.44 per barrel, mainly related to tight supply.Data suggests Iranian production is dropping off rapidly and anticipated offsetting purchases from India and China aren’t materializing, Bernes said.A published report said Indian energy companies are expected to eliminate Iranian imports in November, likely because of pressure from U.S. sanctions, he said.Also, Saudi Arabia appears comfortable with higher oil prices and has been unwilling to fill the production drop off.Canadian energy equities did not benefit from Tuesday’s higher crude price because the country is still having a problem moving the oil, resulting in a widening gap between Western Canada Select and the West Texas Intermediate, Bernes said.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average closed off 69.84 points at 26,492.21. The S&P 500 index shed 3.81 points to 2,915.56, while the Nasdaq composite was up 14.22 points to 8,007.47.Wednesday’s forecasted interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve is already priced in to stocks, added Bernes.“Markets are probably in a wait-and-see mode for the Fed,” he said in an interview.The November natural gas contract was up 2.9 cents at US$3.06 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was up 70 cents US at US$1,205.10 an ounce and the December copper contract was down 1.25 cents at US$2.82 a pound.last_img read more
