Norway Overtakes Russia as Western Europe's Top Gas Supplier
by: DT_Amanda
2015-05-25 16:17:09

Norway has overtaken Russia as western Europe's top gas supplier, data from state firms shows, indicating the European Union's drive to reduce its dependence on Russian energy is bearing fruit.

TWI Plastic pipes have many advantages over pipes made from metals or concrete, such as good chemical resistance, low weight, low cost, and longer predicted service life, and are already used extensively for the transport of gas, water and chemicals. However, their use in more safety critical applications is limited by the fact that there is currently no validated inspection system available to evaluate the joints.

January 2004's Monthly Puzzle

Test your geography....

"At the Airport"

A young man about to take off in his private super-jet spotted a pretty girl on the concourse.
"Hi, did you miss your flight?" he asked.
"Yes, and now I am stranded here for a few more days."
"I'd be glad to give you a lift," he offered.
"But," she replied, "you don't even know where I'm going!"
"It doesn't matter. I can take you there without going out of my way more than a few miles."

Naturally, the girl thought this was a fresh young man with a new line, and she refused his offer until he had told her where he was headed. She then realised he had been telling the truth and went with him.

Given that this sequence of events happened at the airport in Perth, Australia, can you say where the young man was heading?

2015-03-20 10:36:15

The UK Budget 2015 delivered on Wednesday contains assistance to support the local offshore oil and gas sector.

In its Autumn 2014 Statement, the government confirmed that it would introduce an immediate two percent reduction in the rate of the Supplementary Charge, a tax on profits from oil and gas production in the UK and UK Continental Shelf.
