Polish natural gas companies PGNiG and LOTOS recently completed two commercial bunkering ops of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in what PGNiG says are the first operations of this kind carried out at seaports in Gdańsk and Gdynia.The first bunkering took place on March 13 and saw chemical tanker Fure Valo receive 54 tonnes of LNG fuel.In the second bunkering, which took place on March 18, bulk carrier Ireland received 18 tonnes of LNG fuel.Worth noting is the fact that the 4,500 dwt Ireland previously became the first vessel to be successfully bunkered with LNG at the Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) in May 2018.“Bunkering of ships with natural gas in liquefied form is another of many possibilities of using gas, which PGNiG imports to Poland from Qatar, Norway and the USA through the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście,” commented Maciej Woźniak, Vice-President of the PGNiG Management Board for Trade.According to the directive on the development of alternative fuels infrastructure, by the end of 2025 at the latest, a sufficient number of LNG bunkering points should be created in seaports. In case of Poland, these are to be: Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście.PGNiG and LOTOS said LNG bunkering services are now a permanent offer of both entities and can be provided in both Tri-City ports.
Both sides are in the unusual position of not having any Tipperary senior hurling panel members in their squads.Because of this the game is the only senior hurling action in the county this weekend.The teams came through closely fought semi-finals with Nenagh Eire Og seeing off Borrisoleigh by just 2 points while Burgess had the same winning margin over Kilruane. It’s Eire Og’s first divisional final since 2009 with manager Liam Heffernan saying it’s indicative of the strength in North Tipp hurling.That game at McDonagh Park throws-in at 3.30 on Sunday afternoon.
Afterwards Cahir manager Karl McCarthy told Tipp FM Sport he was bitterly disappointed at the result but proud of his team. Goals from Emma Buckley and Roisin Howard brought Cahir back into the game as Milltown were clinging on at Parnell Park.Cahir led by a point at the break 0-7 to 0-6 but Milltown hit a quick goal and point at the start of the second half and pushed ahead.Cahir stormed back late on but the Lake county representatives held on to win 2-14 to 2-12.
Despite that, there is no indication a deal is close between the two organizations.Have heard Padres made offer of multiple Major-League players for Syndergaard. No evidence the sides are close however.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 30, 2019It has been repeatedly reported New York is not going to trade players at the expense of competing in 2020. Related News The Padres’ talks with the Mets regarding Noah Syndergaard focused on prospects in the beginning before progressing to major-leaguers. Twenty-four hours before the deadline, there still is no indication anything is close. https://t.co/Fm6fRiMyci— Dennis Lin (@dennistlin) July 30, 2019It is likely the Padres offered either one or more players like Hunter Renfroe and Franmil Reyes in their proposal to the Mets. They play the same position so at least one is expendable, but the Mets need all the outfielders they can get in return for Syndergaard so San Diego could have dangled both in the deal.But no matter what, the proposal wasn’t enough to land the righty, so MLB continues to wait on the Mets who seem to have cornered the market. The Mets are not backing down from their high price tag for Noah Syndergaard.The Padres have put together a package that includes multiple MLB players for the big right-hander also known as “Thor,” according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. In turn, the Mets have been asking teams for other MLB players that would help fill out the roster after Syndergaard’s departure. They recently proved they were committed to adding top talent when they acquired Marcus Stroman from the Blue Jays in exchange for two minor-league pitchers.As for San Diego, it has been engaged with New York for a long time in regards to landing Syndergaard, according to The Athletic, but there is still no movement on that front.
