His newspaper believes the attack was prompted by articles he wrote a month before about the illegal acquisition by criminal groups of mangrove areas belonging to the state.The justice minister has ordered an investigation into these irregularities and he inspected the areas concerned on 5 June before visiting Rattanacharungporn in hospital. He also instructed the Department of Special Investigations (DSI) to send a team to the area to pursue the enquiries.Reached by telephone, DSI director general Sombat Amornvivat said Rattanacharungporn is now in the witness protection programme and will be called on to testify in court. He also revealed that some of those involved in the attack have been identified although they have not yet been arrested.

NewsLocal NewsCouncil could lease ghost estate housesBy admin – March 31, 2011 748 Linkedin Email Facebook WhatsApp SOME houses lying vacant on unfinished estates in the city could be used for social housing, says Cllr Tom Shortt.He told a meeting of Limerick City Council this week that with 3,500 on the city’s waiting housing list, a special case could be put to the Department of the Environment that vacant properties be allocated to the council.“We should be negotiating for the sale or lease of some of these properties – some of them could be used for social housing – we should pursue this,” he urged.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr John Gilligan pointed out that the council did not create the problem of ghost estates.“Water and sewerage is essential but we do not have the capacity to go in and finish all of the estates, but Cllr Ger Fahy said that Waller’s Close, which has 10 houses, requires just “some outside works remaining to be completed“As it is, we have vacant houses there which attract anti-social activity and become targeted”.Cllr Joe Leddin recommended that where there is a genuine problem with the provision of water and sewerage, the estates concerned should be categorised in terms of priority and value of the bonds outstanding, which in many cases, would not cover the costs involved.“We must ensure that we, as a local authority, are not out of pocket on this. Is there, I wonder, any provision for us to go in to these estates and carry out emergency works because as it is, we have people living on building sites, with fencing and hoardings torn down, and one unfinished estate has no bond – I thought this was essential to secure planning permission”.

The Alen gas monetisation project comprises a 70km pipeline. (Credit: QR9iudjz0 from FreeImages) Chevron has announced the production of first gas from the $330m Alen gas monetisation project, offshore Equatorial Guinea (EG).Noble Energy, which is currently owned by Chevron, had sanctioned the project in April 2019. The company is partnered in the Alen field by Glencore, GEPetrol, Atlas, and Gunvor.The Alen gas monetisation project comprises a 70km pipeline that holds the capacity to transport 950 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfe/d) from the Alen field. The field is located in the Douala Basin.The gas produced from the field is processed via onshore existing facilities to maximise development of current and future regional gas resources, said Chevron.The facilities include Alba Plant’s liquefied petroleum gas processing plant and EG LNG’s liquefied natural gas production facility (EG LNG), both located at Punta Europa in Bioko Island. Both the facilities are operated by Marathon Oil.Noble Energy EG vice president and country manager Gene Kornegay said: “As a company, we are proud to be a strategic partner in this joint effort, and we look forward to continue contributing to the economic and social development of the country.”The Alen gas monetisation project has been seen as the first step for developing an offshore natural gas hub in Equatorial Guinea. It is expected to unlock the potential for monetisation of additional discovered resources in the future by leveraging existing infrastructure.Noble Energy claims to have discovered three trillion cubic feet of gross natural gas resources in the Douala Basin.The Alen gas and condensate field is mainly located in Block O (95%) and is partly contained in Block I (5%).Noble Energy has an operating stake of around 45% working interest in the field. The company also has a 28% stake in the Alba Plant.Originally, the Alen field started operation in 2013 after its development as a condensate production and natural gas recycling project. The project saw an investment of $1.37bn.The natural gas sales generated from the Alen gas monetisation project are expected to be 200-300 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfe/d). The Alen project is expected to generate 200-300MMcfe/d in natural gas sales
On Saturday night, The Greyboy Allstars closed out their two-night weekend run at Brooklyn Bowl. While the weather outside was frigid, the funky Karl Denson-led five-piece brought the heat to the Bowl. This band never disappoints, and Saturday continued that tradition. Once Maurice “Mobetta” Brown & SOUL’D U OUT got the crowd warmed up with their jazzy sound, it was time for Karl D and the boys to take the stage.The first set had some standout moments, with Denson switching between saxophone, flute and vocals. It is hard not to be reminded of Anchorman and Ron Burgundy whenever Karl D plays the jazz flute, but he brings a certain panache and style to it that is hard to deny. The band certainly had the crowd grooving with their brand of funk and jazz. Robert Walter on they keys was the MVP of set one, and Elgin Park added some really nice moments on guitar. The Bowl was packed before their set even started, and by the end of set one, both the band and the crowd were firing on all cylinders.The second set picked up with an uptempo funk jam, with Park ripping a solo while Karl D jammed out the sax like only he can. The band provided the feel of what a funky ‘20s jazz club might have been like, albeit with house lighting designer Victor Cornette adding some beautiful visuals. At one point in set two, the band entered some really spacey territory, and the saxophone provided the background music for this ship to blast off! Karl Denson added vocals on a couple of songs during the second set, and boy, can this man sing! As an added bonus, Mobetta Brown jumped on the stage to battle it out with Karl D, trumpet vs. saxophone, providing a clear highlight of set two.At times, The Greyboy Allstars’ performance had a The Doors “The End” vibe and feel to it: They would wind their way out there with jazzy textures, only to jump right back into the funky dance party getting way out there with jazzy sounds, but then they would jump back into the funky dance party.The Greyboy Allstars closed out the show with an instrumental cover of Michael Jackson hit “The Way You Make Me Feel”, Park adding fiery licks as the crowd rocked and rolled along. During the encore, bassist Chris Stillwell and guitarist Elgin Park switched instruments, showing off their versatility to put a cap on a fun, funky, dancey kind of Saturday night.The Greyboy Allstars – “Still Waiting” – 3/3/18[Video: The Greyboy Allstars]The Greyboy Allstars will be back at it on March 15th, 16th, and 17th, when they will mount a three-night run including two nights in San Francisco and one in Denver.
