Ashes 2019: England bring in Sam Curran, Chris Woakes for 5th Test

first_imgEngland made two changes to their playing XI for the fifth Ashes Test starting at the Oval, with Sam Curran and Chris Woakes replacing Jason Roy and Craig Overton.Australia, who have retained the Ashes after taking a 2-1 lead by winning in Manchester, also made one change with all rounder Mitch Marsh coming in to replace Travis Head.”The reason Travis isn’t playing is because we felt we needed extra bowling after a long series,” Australia skipper Tim Paine said.”We want to get the make-up right for this Test and unfortunately Travis misses out.” “He’s disappointed he’s not playing. “No doubt he’s in the top six or seven batsmen in this country.”Roy’s omission is no great surprise as he has struggled throughout the series having started it as an opening batsman. He has scored 110 runs in eight innings with a top score of 31 at Old Trafford when he dropped down the order.”It’s always tough to leave guys out, but Stokesy obviously picked up a shoulder injury in the last game and won’t be able to bowl the overs we normally expect him to,” Root said at a press conference.”With that we’ve had to change the balance of the side, and Jason’s the unfortunate one to miss out. Jason’s had an opportunity to come in and play Test cricket, get a feel for it and it’s not quite gone how he would have liked. But I’m sure he’ll go away and work extremely hard and come back again.”advertisementBen Stokes will play as a batsman only after injuring his shoulder at Old Trafford. “He might be able to bowl a couple of overs here and there, but his batting, as this series has shown, is a massive part of our side and he rightly deserves to be in this team as just a batter, and a top-four batter,” Root said.England are trying to avoid a home series defeat by Australia for the first time since 2001.AUSTRALIA XII FOR FIFTH ASHES TEST: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Mitch Marsh, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine (c, wk), Pat Cummins, Peter Siddle, Mitch Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh HazlewoodEngland’s squad: Joe Root (c), Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes OUT: Jason Roy, Craig Overton IN: Sam Curran, Chris WoakesAlso Read | Ashes 2019: Justin Langer backs ‘world class’ David Warner to come good at The OvalAlso See:last_img read more

Wison to Supply Barge-Based Floating LNG FRU for VGS

first_imgzoom Wison Offshore & Marine announced today the award of a binding agreement with Vessel Gasification Solutions (VGS) of New Jersey, USA, for the supply of the industry’s first barge-based floating LNG regasification unit (FRU) to be installed offshore India.The FRU, which will be owned by VGS, will consist of a newbuild, non-propelled barge equipped to perform the regasification and send out of a maximum of 1,000MMscf/d of gas. The facility will be moored on a jetty structure located approximately 8km offshore Andhra Pradesh on India’s eastern coast, to the northeast of the Kakinada Anchorage Port (KAP), alongside a permanent floating storage unit (FSU) that will be used as the LNG offloading point for trading tankers. Furthermore, the FRU will be adequately sized to allow for the future expansion of the regasification capability by an additional 750MMscf/d of gas within the next few years in order to meet the rapidly growing natural gas requirements in the region.Under the agreement, Wison Offshore & Marine affiliates will be responsible for the turnkey engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the unit and will lead the project from its Shanghai operational center with construction to be performed at Wison’s wholly-owned fabrication facility located in Nantong, China.“With the execution of this agreement, Wison has allowed VGS to significantly increase the first-mover advantage we have established on India’s East Coast,” said Gaurav Tiwari, President of VGS. “Taken with the appointment of Exmar to operate and manage the Kakinada LNG Import Terminal, along with the finalization of the Project’s insurance structuring, stitching up these three critical milestones keeps with the fast-track timetable with which we are driving the project forward. Now, with Wison and Exmar partnered for the Project’s implementation we can continue to move forward briskly, but also with great certitude.”“We are very excited to be moving forward with VGS on this project and provide another innovative LNG facility to the market,” added L. Dwayne Breaux, President of Wison Offshore & Marine Ltd. “The FRU will be the integral part of VGS’s plan to meet a significant energy need in the Indian market. The fact that VGS has entrusted the delivery of this unit to Wison is a testament to our strong relationship with this key player in the LNG market and our growing position in the industry as a trusted supplier of LNG facilities.” 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 Wison, January 21, 2014 Print  Close My locationlast_img read more
