Workers’ wait for gratuity payment lengthened

first_imgAggrieved workers who have been waiting on gratuity payments for in excess of five years will have to wait a little longer to receive their outstanding monies.This is on account of the legal documents which are required for the release of their monies not being received by the Communities Minister as yet.The workers who were attached to the Diamond-Grove Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC), on the East Bank of Demerara, were laid-off from their jobs in 2013, because their services became redundant. After being laid-off, the workers were promised that they would be paid their gratuity. However, to date, they have not received those monies.One of the affected workers, Edward Adolphus related to Guyana Times that the workers were given a “royal run-around” when they enquired about their monies. After visiting the NDC and the Labour Department, the tractor operator learnt that the monies had been budgeted for and were waiting on Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan’s approval.An overseer at the NDC confirmed this. “We cannot pay without the approval,” he told this publication.Meanwhile, the Public Relations Department of the Communities Ministry has disclosed that the relevant documents have not yet reached the Minister.In fact, those documents are currently with the Attorney General’s office. After which, they will supposedly be handed over to the Minister for his approval.last_img read more

Oil production not immediately possible – ExxonMobil

first_img… no dates for commencement of oil production – HarmonIn light of the June 30 “world-class discovery” of hydrocarbon reserves which is the equivalent to some 800 million to 1.4 billion barrels of crude oil offshore Guyana, there has been much buzz locally and internationally about Guyana’s emerging oil sector.However, officials have stated that there is a process to go through before actual production commences.Minister of State Joseph Harmon told a post Cabinet briefing on Wednesday at that production dates have not been indicated as yet by US-based ExxonMobil.“The company said they are still in a phase which will require several other steps to be taken before they can arrive at decisions with respect to production dates but we are hopeful that those dates can be compressed so that we can have the benefit of exploration and the benefit of production very quickly,” Harmon stated.Cabinet was briefed by a team from ExxonMobil on Tuesday last. The briefing saw Cabinet members being brought up to date with the operations of the US-based oil company and covered an array of activities including the overall preparation of eventual production in the coming years.“The company outlined plans for the proposed usage of a floating production storage off-loading facility during the production phase and went through plans for training and integrating Guyanese into the various spheres of activities associated with petroleum exploration and production,” the Minister related.Moreover, Harmon stated that Cabinet was briefed in detail about the potential for, and the utilisation of, the “associated” natural gas that was discovered in the Well. He noted that some areas that are being looked at to use the gas as a form of power generation, fertilisation production and the production of Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) for domestic use.However, Jeff Simmons, Country Manager of Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) – the local arm of ExxonMobil, told a Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources later on Wednesday that it would not be feasible to utilise the gas because of the small amount found.“Right now, the only real economics to the gas are to put it back in the ground and keep it there until we have a  more significant gas find that we can generate some kind of plateau of gas production… The difficulty with associated gas instead of a pure gas reservoir is that a lot of the monetisation of that gas requires investment which requires the gas stream that’s consistent and expanded over more than five or six or seven years,” Simmons, who was among the team that briefed Cabinet on Tuesday, explained.According to the official, the difficulty is getting sufficient gas to build a LNG facility over a long period. Moreover, he noted that EEPGL is carrying out a number of studies and will report to Government on a number of things that could potentially work with the gas.The US-based oil and gas exploration giant announced in June the drilling results from the Liza-2 well, the second exploration Well in the Stabroek block located some 120 miles offshore Guyana, confirmed a “world-class discovery” of oil with a recoverable resource of between 800 million and 1.4 billion oil-equivalent barrels.This is the second major announcement of oil find coming from ExxonMobil that has been conducting explorations off the shores of Guyana. On May 20, 2015, the company disclosed a significant oil discovery on the Stabroek Block after its well Liza-1 encountered more than 295 feet of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs.Against this backdrop, Simons told the Parliamentary Committee that EEPGL has already applied for an environmental permit and then would put arrangements in place to begin oil extraction and production by 2021.last_img read more

Sasol on Dow sustainability index

first_imgA Sasol Oil plant. The petrochemicals giant has pioneered the technology to produce oil, petrol and other chemicals from coal. (Image: Sasol, MediaClubSouthAfrica.com.For more free photos, visit the image library.)Janine ErasmusLocal petroleum giant Sasol has made its debut on the Dow Jones sustainability world index, one of 33 such companies that are recognised as new global corporate sustainability leaders. The 2008 list was announced in September and in spite of 25 deletions, the number of companies listed grew from 312 to 320.The Dow Jones sustainability world index was launched in 1999, and reveals the top 10% of the largest 2 500 companies around the world in terms of their corporate sustainability practices and philosophies. By hailing those companies that embrace the principles of corporate sustainability, thereby taking a step closer to long-term business success, the index aims to encourage others around the world to do the same.According to Global 100, social, environmental and governance factors are becoming increasingly relevant to financial performance. The organisation also says that companies which show superior management of these issues have an edge over their competitors, and are likely to out-perform them in the long term.Global 100 is a list of the 100 most sustainable corporations in the world, and is announced each year at the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.A great achievementSasol CEO Pat Davies said that first-time inclusion on the renowned index is a great achievement for Sasol. “Our previous best was to get to the top 15% in the Oil and Gas sector last year. Our renewed focus on people, exceptional performance, long-term sustainable growth and safety has been rewarded. We are motivated by the positive impact that this inclusive approach to business can have on all our stakeholders,” he added.Inclusion on the sustainability index is the goal of leading international corporations, said Sasol in a statement announcing its latest achievement. It benefits a company in a number of ways – not the least of which is the public acknowledgement of its status as an industry leader in the key areas of economic, environmental and social practices, and the recognition of important stakeholders such as legislators, customers and employees.Companies around the globe use the indexes as their reference point for sustainability performance. In addition, the index is watched closely by market players around the world. According to Dow Jones, asset managers in 16 countries use the indexes, under licence, to manage a range of sustainability-geared portfolios with a total value of almost $6-billion.Sasol’s sustainability philosophy is based on accommodating the needs of today’s generation without in any way affecting the ability of future generations to meet their needs. According to Davies, the company intends to be part of the solution, not the problem, in environmental matters, and was constantly looking for ways to reduce its impact on the environment. In terms of carbon emissions, Davies said, “The best way to deal with carbon is not to produce it in the first place.”The company is ever mindful of economic, social and environmental issues that affect its stakeholders, and conducts all its operations with a balanced mix of financial, environmental and social responsibility. Sasol is currently expanding its operations in Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific area.Sustainable corporationsThe Dow Jones sustainability indexes track the financial performance of corporations that make sustainability a key facet of their business ethic. There are three indexes – for North America, Europe, and the world.Criteria for inclusion cover a range of economic, environmental and social issues such as corporate governance, knowledge management, environmental performance and human rights policies.Data in the indexes is compiled from a number of information sources. In addition to comprehensive questionnaires from Sustainable Asset Management Indexes, an independent asset management company based in Zurich, Dow Jones conducts extensive analyses of company documentation, including sustainability, environmental, health and safety, social and annual financial reports.It also reviews the previous year’s media reports, press releases and articles written about companies under scrutiny. Finally, analysts personally contact companies for clarification on any matters that may arise from questionnaires and company documents, in the form of telephonic or face to face interviews.John Prestbo, Executive Director of Dow Jones Indexes, said that there is an increasing awareness of the importance of sustainability for long-term corporate performance. “A growing number of market participants are integrating long-term economic, environmental and social factors into their analysis.”Do you have queries or comments about this article?

De Villiers to lead Springboks in Rugby Championship

first_img4 August 2014Springbok captain Jean de Villiers has been included in the South African squad for the four-nation Castle Lager Rugby Championship after recovering from a knee injury. There are two newcomers, Cobus Reinach and Damian de Allende, in the 30-man squad named on the weekend.A number of other players have also returned from injury, including Tendai Mtawarira, Frans Malherbe, Eben Etzebeth and Pat Lambie.‘Great’“It’s great to have Jean back to lead the side in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship,” Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer said in a statement.“Victor Matfield [as captain] and Jan Serfontein [at centre] both did superbly well in his absence, but he is our captain and I’m sure he will slot back into the side without any difficulty. The same goes for Eben, Frans and Patrick, all of whom have been part of the squad before.“We will medically assess all the players in the squad in Johannesburg next week. This will not only include the players who missed the June tests because of injury, but also someone such as Mtawarira, who has been out of action for a while. We will deal with every player and his needs individually.”RetainedFour players who made their debuts in June – Cornal Hendricks, Teboho “Oupa” Mohoje, Lood de Jager and Handre Pollard – kept their places in the Springbok squad.“These players have impressed from the first minute they joined us. This is a step up for all of them, but that is the kind of challenge we thrive on,” Meyer commented.“It’s never easy cutting a squad down in size and we’re fortunate that we have a number of experienced players who will be on stand-by should their services be needed,” he added.Kick offThe Castle Lager Rugby Championship kicks off on Saturday, 16 August, when Australia host New Zealand in Sydney and the Springboks tackle Argentina at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.Looking ahead, Meyer said: “We’ve been steadily improving over the past two years, but another step-up is needed this season.“It’s been a theme for us since the start of the season and we must simply keep on accelerating in the coming two months.“We’ve set ourselves some goals for the Castle Lager Rugby Championship and we’ll have to be focused and switched on from the moment we get together in Johannesburg.“Winning matches and scoring tries remain foremost in our minds. During the four matches in June, we scored 23 tries, which we were very happy with. I think we can be proud of the rugby we played against Wales and Scotland, but that is in the past now and we have a new competition to get ready for.“There are many good things we can build on from the June series, but also some things we need to work on if we’re going to be competitive in the coming months. It’s a challenge we relish, though, and I can’t wait to get going.”Not considered for selectionJapan-based JP Pietersen and Schalk Burger were not considered for selection as they have to report for duty with their clubs.“Obviously the squad can change during the course of the Rugby Championship and although JP and Schalk were not considered at this stage, they could still feature later in the competition,” Meyer said.A number of player, who have featured for the Springboks since 2013 were not considered for selection because of injuries, including Pieter-Steph du Toit, Flip van der Merwe, Pierre Spies, Fourie Jaque Fourie and Fourie du Preez.SPRINGBOK SQUADWillem Alberts, Bakkies Botha, Schalk Brits, Marcell Coetzee, Damian De Allende, Lodewyk de Jager, Jean de Villiers (captain), Bismarck du Plessis, Jannie du Plessis, Eben Etzebeth, Bryan Habana, Cornal Hendricks, Francois Hougaard, Patrick Lambie, Willie le Roux, Francois Louw, Frans Malherbe, Victor Matfield Teboho “Oupa” Mohoje, Tendai Mtawarira, Lwazi Mvovo, Trevor Nyakane, Ruan Pienaar, Handre Pollard, Cobus Reinach, Jan Serfontein, Gurthro Steenkamp, Morne Steyn, Adriaan Strauss, Duane VermeulenSAinfo reporterlast_img read more
