Dana Gas has repaired its liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) facility at Kor Mor in Iraqi Kurdistan, which was damaged when a tanker smashed into it last year, halting its production of up to 900 tonnes of oil equivalent a day.
Dana*and its parent company, Crescent Petroleum, remain in negotiations with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) about receivables that the companies are owed because of payment delays in the autonomous region.
The repairs at the Kor Mor LPG plant cost $15m, the company said in a statement.
Dana and Crescent have together invested more than $1bn into their gas production in the region. Austria’s OMV and Hungarian MOL are minority partners in the Kurdish operations, which include the gasfields of Kor Mor and Chemchemal as well as the LPG plant.
We are working with the KRG and the ministry to resolve the outstanding issues including the receivables, as soon as possible,” said Rashid Al Jarwan, Dana’s executive director and acting chief executive.
Dana received US$48 million for its gas last year, after the finance ministry in Baghdad agreed to release $1 billion as payment for KRG exports. The Kurdish and the central government are in negotiations over another payment, which is believed to be smaller.

The conflict in Syria has become increasingly sectarian as it spills over into neighbouring countries.
Iraq has essentially closed its border to Syrian refugees, partly to avoid an influx of Sunni muslims.
But a growing community of Shia pilgrims from Syria have decided simply not to go home.

[loechin] What some of you don’t know maybe is that the Button has been pushed more then once and there was always some bump that would not let it go thru.

The actual RV has now been completed 13 days ago however some person or person’s got their shorts in a bunch over something. Maybe back door deals or something….

Now all has been set but more pressure was needed to force said person or persons to react in a positive manner. This thing can happen in a few minutes or seconds.

[2mater] closing bell at 4:00 EST

[blessedinohio] He’s not saying that the RV will happen at the closing bell – possibly close. I know this info will be taken out of context a million times today…suffice it to say, WE’RE CLOSE!

*******************************

Jester] HI AGAIN… SORRY FOR THE INTERRUPTION… JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU GUYS SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT…

[Jester] HI ALL… JUST A SHORT POST IF YOU DON’T MIND….

[Jester] TO FOLLOW UP ON THIS MORNINGS DISCUSSION… AND TO LET YOU CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF… I HAVE DONE A TAD BIT OF RESEARCH ON THE FOLLOWING EXCERPT FROM THE UN VIDEO ABOUT THE RINGING OF THE BELL AND WHY THEY ARE THERE…

[Jester] REMEMBER WHAT WAS SAID…

[Jester] The reason for the visit to the NYSE Euronext is that the stock exchange is expected to announce that it is joining the United Nations sustainable stock exchanges initiative and this initiative aims to explore how exchanges can enhance corporate t transparency on environmental, social, and corporate governance matters.

[Jester] NOW HERE IS WHAT THAT MEANS…

[Jester] The Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative is aimed at exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, regulators, and companies, can enhance corporate transparency – and ultimately performance – on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage sustainable investment.

[Jester] At the SSE 2012 Global Dialogue a new dimension to the Initiative was launched, with the five participating stock exchanges making a public commitment to sustainability in their markets, thereby becoming a SSE Partner Exchange. Since the event, the Bombay Stock Exchange and MCX-SX of India have joined this group of SSE Partner Exchanges. UNCTAD, the UN Global Compact, the PRI and UNEP-FI, as the core organizer of the SSE Initiative, also committed to supporting stock exchanges in this effort.

[Jester] Going forward, the SSE initiative invites exchanges globally to become a Partner Stock Exchange within the SSE by making this voluntary public commitment. In addition, the SSE welcomes participation from securities regulators, investors, companies and other key stakeholders. The PRI has an SSE Investor Working Group that has been actively engaged since 2009. To ensure the strategic direction of the SSE, a Consultative Group is being launched and will be comprised of exchanges and other key stakeholders. The SSE will continue to offer a platform for ongoing communication, organize the biennial Global Dialogues, as well as creating new work streams.

[dinardiamonds] So debunk tony lol

[Jester] YOU CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE AND CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF AT http://www.sseinitiative.org/

[siskhyder] Thx. Jester

[Jester] NOW… WHILE I THINK THIS IS A GREAT IDEA… AND A GREAT INDICATION OF THINGS TO COME… I DO NOT SEE HOW IT CAN BE USED TO CALL AN RV OR A GLOBAL RESET… SORRY…

[Jester] JUST DON’T WANT THE STOCKDLE PARADOX TO CONTINUE… AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THAT IS WHICH I THINK MANY OF US ARE SUFFERING FROM… CHECK THIS OUT… http://www.ndoherty.com/stockdale-paradox/

[highhopes] Jester Tony may have heard his info from his sources..not an article

[blessedinohio] Jester I’m not sure anyone is saying that this is exactly why today looks good…lots of other info from what I’ve gathered.

[siskhyder] Well with Lew in reno. Could be a good sign

[jerseyjoe] highhopes last night okie back him too imo

[highhopes] bambam jerseyjoe thanks and i do have high hopes today!!

[jerseyjoe] highhopes so do I RV RV

[Jester] JUST WANTED YOU TO HAVE ALL THE FACTS… THEN YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION…

[Jester] THANKS FOR YOUR TIME! TAKE CARE…

[Jester] SEEYALATERBYE…

[cheeny] Jester Just to be completely clear. Are you saying that there is no way that the RV will ocur today or tomorrow?

[heyu288] cheeny That is not what I heard him say…. he said that we should not tie the closing bell to the RV…. not that it couldn’t happen just that one thing has nothing to do with the other..

[Diogenes] heyu288 That is what I heard him say as well. But he has also said, everyone has different sources and therefore different information. JMO

[GJHHonor] wow go rv go tony

[johnr]Tony- I always believed thats where we’re at today.. either we’re all fed up and ready to throw in the towel.. or if planned riots in Iraq forces the hand of the RV

[misskitty05] So Tony is calling it for today? (Sorry, just got on)

[GJHHonor] Tony said that we should see it today, they have someone there if someone tries to stop stop from happening, that they have somone there that if something goes wrong , they will step in for it to be done. he will make another call today with the news

[queenmother4] Gjhhonor wow that’s pretty definite that’s hard core it’s happening! Wow he must believe it or he wouldn’t say it that way.

[blessedinohio] queenmother4 GJHHonor But he also said something classified could happen to stop it – it’s not 100% for sure…I’d hate for everyone to be absolutely expecting it and then the unexpected happens…as we always say, we need to remain grounded, as hard as that is today!

jdtolle » July 24th, 2013, . Live your love

Love feels good, but don’t just feel it. Live your love.

Don’t keep your love trapped inside you. Put it into action in every moment of your life.

There are people you love, values you love, and beautiful, lovely things you love. Today, and every day, do something good and supportive and loving for them.

Love that is not truly lived and acted upon can end up as painful regret. But you do not have to let that happen, because you are here to manifest your love in countless ways.

There is much love in your heart. Let it flow into your life.

Feel the love, act on it, feel it even more, and act on it again and again. Make your great love into a truly great life.

— Ralph Marston
