Minister: Krk LNG Project More Realistic than Ever Before

first_imgThe long-delayed LNG terminal project on the northern Adriatic island of Krk in Croatia is way more realistic now than it was ever before due to the crisis involving Ukraine and Russia, Croatia’s Economy Minister Ivan Vrdoljak said in a statement last week.“For a couple of months we have been trying to convince potential partners and the European Commission that this LNG project is a project of common interest for the South Eastern Europe and its gas supply,” the minister said.This crisis involving Ukraine and Russia showed Croatia was right when asking the EU Commission to get involved in the project and to provide financing, Vrdoljak said.“We are currently finalizing the documentation for the LNG terminal and we hope that the EU Commission will decide before the end of this year whether it will provide part of the funding for the project and if so, in what manner,” he added.[mappress]LNG World News Staff, April 17, 2014; Image: mingo.hrlast_img read more

Nishikori, Miyazato hail Matsuyama

first_imgKei Nishikori on Tuesday heaped praise on his “amazing” countryman Hideki Matsuyama for reaching No. 2 in the PGA Tour rankings, the best ever position for a Japanese male golfer.But while he offered major praise, Nishikori hinted that he feels Matsuyama is not getting the recognition he deserves at home, saying many world-class athletes receive more love outside of their homeland.

I hope he continues to pile up wins, but not get too caught up with winning just the majors.”It is the first time in nearly two months that Miyazato is competing on the U.S. LPGA tour, and the first time she’s played in North America since she set a season’s end date for her retirement.In her 20-minute news conference, Miyazato said again that it was lack of motivation that triggered her retirement decision.When asked why she needed four years to pick up her first win on the U.S. tour, Miyazato, reflecting on her adjustment period, said it took her longer than expected to overcome the language, travel and the time difference barriers.“My 12 years in the U.S. are great memories. I played to the best of my ability. I hope to enjoy the remainder of the season,” she said. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more
