The NCAA forced Michigan to disassociate with Webber for 10 years and had his team’s Final Four banners get taken down as a result.Webber has said he would like for everything to be fixed and for there to be a reunion with his former Fab Five teammates.“There’s nothing I would want more than (a reunion), and I think we’re on the right path for that, but I think there has to be conversation organically,” Webber said this summer.“For the fans I want to do it, for myself, for my family, for hoopers. It’s something I think we’re working toward.”Michigan and Penn State are set to kick off at 3:45 p.m. E.T. on Saturday. The game will be on ESPN.last_img read more

DNV GL Secures Multi-Million GBP Contract for Statoil …

first_imgDNV GL, February 6, 2014 Print  Close My location zoom DNV GL UK has secured the third party ICP (Independent Competent Person) multi-million GBP contract, related to compliance with UK Offshore Regulations for the Statoil Mariner project.The award is the culmination of two years’ of project FEED support, assisting Statoil in developing Performance Standards and the Written Scheme of Examination (WSE) under the UK Offshore Safety Case Regulations for the Production Drilling Quarters (PDQ), Subsea, Umbilical’s, Risers & Flowlines (SURF) and the Floating Storage Unit (FSU).The Mariner Field is located on the East Shetland Platform of the UK North Sea, approximately 150km east of the Shetland Isles. The project is the largest new offshore development in the UK in more than a decade, with production expected to start in January 2017. The field is estimated to produce for 30 years, with average production of around 55,000 barrels of oil per day over the plateau period from 2017 to 2020. The project will involve DNV GL offices world-wide and draw on integrated services of third party verification, classification and consultancy; with the majority of the design review work being undertaken in London where the three main design subcontractors reside.Hari Vamadevan, Regional Manager UK and Southern Africa said the project is complicated as it involves many contractors working across multiple countries. “The commercial and technical support teams in the UK and Korea worked hard to explain to all the project stakeholders the role of ICP and Class in UK waters which was critical to securing the contract. This project will continue to cement DNV GL’s position as the verification and classification company for the North Sea, and open more opportunities for us in the future.” 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定last_img read more
