THE BEAM Corky rearview cycling mirror is a must for both commuters and serious cyclists

first_img– Advertisement – Conceptualized in France and manufactured in South Korea, THE BEAM Corky rearview cycling mirror makes pedaling along busy roads easier and safer. The Corky mirror ensures you don’t have to look over your shoulder to see approaching traffic from behind. Therefore, it can make completing interval sets easier because you can focus on the road ahead and the data targets on your cycling computer while staying in an optimal riding position. Attaching easily to your drop bars, this system helps you stay informed while keeping your eyes on the road. Simply cork your drop bars and open the cap to expose the mirror. Corky offers 360 degrees of rotation so you can view everything around you within a 100-meter range. Its sleek, aerodynamic design minimizes air resistance while open. When they’re not in use, close the lid to keep the mirrors safe. Choose between the Road or Urban bike versions.last_img read more

BP and Reliance move on to second phase of India’s deep-water gas field development

first_imgUK’s giant BP and India’s Reliance Industries have sanctioned the second phase of integrated Block KG D6 development, the ‘Satellite cluster’ project, located in the Bay of Bengal off India. The companies are moving forward to develop the Block’s discovered deep-water gas fields in an integrated series of projects, bringing new gas production for India, BP said in a statement on Thursday.The ‘Satellite cluster’ is the second of three projects in the Block KG D6 integrated development. The first of the projects, development of the ‘R-Series’ deep-water gas fields, was sanctioned in June 2017.Together, the three projects will develop a total of about 3 trillion cubic feet of discovered gas resources with a total investment of c. INR 40,000 crore ($6 billion).According to BP, they are expected to bring a total c. 30-35 million cubic meters (1 billion cubic feet) of gas a day new domestic gas production onstream, phased over 2020-2022.Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance, said: “In consonance with our announcements last year to raise domestic gas production, we are delighted to announce the on-schedule progress of the Satellite cluster in the east coast of India. This development supports the country’s imminent need of increasing domestic gas supply and is a firm step towards making India a gas-based economy.”BP chief executive, Bob Dudley, said: “Through our partnership, Reliance and BP are able to develop these discovered gas resources efficiently and economically, working closely with the Government of India. These new developments will produce much needed energy for India’s thriving economy.”Integrated field development of deep-water gas fieldsThe Satellites cluster is a dry gas development and comprises four discoveries with five well subsea development in ~1700 meters water depth, up to ~15 kilometers east and southeast of the producing D1D3 fields in KG D6.The first of the KG D6 projects to be sanctioned, the R-series project, is already in execution phase with all major contracts awarded. The Satellites cluster project will draw on execution synergies with the R-series project being developed concurrently.India today consumes over 5 billion cubic feet a day of natural gas and aspires to double gas consumption by 2022. Gas production from the integrated development is expected to help reduce India’s import dependence and amount to over 10% of the country’s projected gas demand in 2022.last_img read more
