Now that the dust settled from the brawl that took place, commissioner Greg Sankey is voicing his displeasure with the situation.On Thursday, Ole Miss and Mississippi State battled for state supremacy. Instead of letting the actual game generate buzz, the chaos that erupted during the action stole all the headlines.Four players were ejected from the game, and once the final whistle blew, the athletic directors exchanged harsh words.Well, Sankey is making it abundantly clear that he won’t tolerate that behavior in his conference.“These incidents have become too common in this series,” Sankey said. “I will require both athletics directors to me with me at the SEC Office in the off-season to review past issues and develop a plan for the purpose of creating a healthier environment for this annual game.”Here is the full quote:Greg Sankey is calling Ross Bjork and John Cohen into the principal’s office so to speak. Not happy with the Egg Bowl hijinks— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) November 26, 2018Despite being bitter rivals, both programs need to have respect for their opponent.If not, the Egg Bowl will certainly lose its appeal and might just turn into an annual game that everyone dreads watching.last_img read more

first_imgPress Release zoom KD Consortium, consisting of KBR and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Company, has been awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) contract by Eni East Africa SpA for a floating liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility for the Coral South Development Project located in Mozambique.With the award, the KD consortium will be one of three consortia competing for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract to build the new floating LNG facility for Eni East Africa and its partners to develop the hydrocarbon discovery in the Rovuma Basin in Mozambique.Only one consortium will be chosen to take the project to the EPCIC phase. Three important milestones of this combined FEED-EPCIC competition are:1) FEED activities started in May 2014.2) FEED completion date is set to be end of April 2015.3) EPCIC offer submission is foreseen by end of May 2015.“Developing a cost-effective solution for the first FLNG vessel in Mozambique was the rationale for developing the KD consortium,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO.The KD Consortium will provide the FEED for the Topsides, Hull and Subsea for the Floating LNG facility. The Topsides and Turret are being designed in KBR’s Leatherhead office while the hull and marine system are being engineered in DSME’s facility in Seoul, South Korea.The FLNG facility will be a turret moored double-hull floating vessel, on which gas receiving, processing, liquefaction, and offloading facilities will be mounted together with LNG and condensate storage.Eni’s Coral South Development Project is located in the deep waters of the Rovuma Basin, which straddles Mozambique’s Northern border with Tanzania.
