Britain rejects London mayor’s ‘Boris Island’ airport plan

September 2nd, 2014

London Mayor Boris Johnson leaves after giving a speech on the European Union, in LondonA plan to build a major new airport to the east of London was rejected by a government-appointed commission on Tuesday, dealing a blow to its high-profile backer, the city's mayor Boris Johnson. The Airports Commission said the idea of building a costly new airport in the Thames Estuary, nicknamed Boris Island, had not made the shortlist of options it is considering to expand Britain's runway capacity. It will now make a final recommendation by summer 2015 from three remaining options, including two plans to expand Heathrow Airport and one to expand Gatwick Airport. British politicians and business leaders agree the south east of the country needs a new runway but the idea of adding greater capacity near to London is unpopular with many voters because of noise, pollution and safety concerns.

Algeria’s In Amenas gas plant returning to normal after attack

September 1st, 2014

By Gwladys Fouche and Joachim Dagenborg OSLO (Reuters) – Normal operations are resuming at a major gas plant in Algeria, 18 months after a raid by Islamist militants killed forty employees, with full output expected in a few months, one of the plant’s operators said on Monday. Norway’s Statoil had kept its permanent workers away from the In Amenas plant, which it operates jointly with BP and Algeria’s Sonatrach, after gunmen raided the site deep in the Sahara desert in January 2013. “The corporate executive committee has decided that ordinary rotation (of staff) is to be resumed at the plant as all defined security measures have been implemented,” Statoil said in a statement. Security at the plant, which produced about 11.5 percent of Algeria’s natural gas output before the attack, has been heightened, Statoil told Reuters.
