The North West Shelf (NWS) Project participants have executed fully-termed gas processing agreements(GPAs) for processing third-party gas through the NWS Project facilities with Woodside Burrup Pty Ltd (Woodside Burrup), in respect of gas from the Pluto fields, and with subsidiaries of Mitsui & Co Ltd and Beach Energy Limited (Mitsui and Beach), in respect of the Waitsia Gas Project Stage 2.Execution of the GPAs is a key milestone in the transformation of the Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) into a third-party gas tolling facility and secures gas to fill emerging processing capacity. Both GPAs are subject to conditions precedent including relevant government and regulatory approvals.The GPA with Woodside Burrup is to process approximately 3.0 million tonnes of LNG in aggregate and approximately 24.7 petajoules of domestic gas at KGP in the period 2022-2025. The gas will be sourced from the offshore Pluto fields and transported to the NWS Project facilities through the Pluto-KGP Interconnector, which is targeted to be ready for start-up in 2022.The GPA with Mitsui and Beach is to provide gas processing services for gas from the onshore Waitsia Gas Project Stage 2 for an aggregate of approximately 7.5 million tonnes of LNG in the period between H2 2023 and the end of 2028.In support of the GPAs, the NWS Project participants have also taken a final investment decision for the infrastructure required to receive gas from the Pluto-KGP Interconnector and the Burrup Extension Pipeline (which will be utilised for Waitsia gas). Construction is targeted to commence in Q1 2021.Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the transformation of KGP into a third-party tolling facility would create new opportunities for Western Australia’s gas industry.“The processing of third-party gas resources will unlock further value for the NWS Project.“It will provide new revenue and LNG exports from the NWS Project, add to Western Australia’s domestic gas supplies from Pluto and help underpin Australia’s economic recovery,” he said.The NWS Project participants are: Woodside Energy Ltd (Operator; 16.67%); BHP Billiton Petroleum (North West Shelf) Pty Ltd (16.67%); BP Developments Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%); Chevron Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%); Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) Pty Ltd (16.67%) and Shell Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%).Woodside Burrup holds a 90% interest in Pluto LNG and operates the Pluto LNG facilities Source: Company Press Release Execution of the GPAs is a key milestone in the transformation of the Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) into a third-party gas tolling facility last_img read more

Bullying or be humble and kind


first_imgLast Tuesday I was driving to the airport to have lunch with two of my sons when this Tim McGraw song called Humble and Kind came on the radio. Normally I play music in the background, but I was compelled to listen to McGraw’s lyrics, and they were timely. Early that same morning I had an executive coaching call, and the client was in tears. She said her manager and peers were bullying her about her perspective on diversity. We worked through the challenge, and she left the call recentered with a declaration on how to move forward with dignity in interactions with her manager and coworkers.After I completed the call, my heart was troubled because there is bullying in my children’s’ schools, the workplace, in the news, and even on airplanes. It is important to me to guide and support children so they are kind; likewise it is equally important to me to help leaders create engaged, supportive, and equitable work cultures. In my deeply reflective space, I had questions: Where do we unintentionally bully? When are we so resolute in our perspective that we come across as a bully in the boardroom, team meeting, or performance review? Do we come across as a bully when we don’t get our way at work? How are we creating dignity for ourselves and others?There is a fine line between being a bully and being kind. McGraw says:“Hold the door say please say thank youDon’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lieI know you got mountains to climb butAlways stay humble and kindWhen the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to youWhen the work you put in is realizedLet yourself feel the pride butAlways stay humble and kind…Bitterness keeps you from flyingAlways stay humble and kind”The Workplace Bullying Institute reports that 72% of workplace bullies are bosses. Bullying in the workplace creates a hostile work environment, which is not helpful for a sustainable organization. I borrowed this list of workplace examples of bullying from The Balance.*● Denying an employee access to resources, assignments, projects, or opportunities● Little or no feedback on performance● Withholding information essential to performing one’s job● Failing to invite someone to an essential meeting● Threatening job loss● Excessive monitoring or micromanagement● Assigning tasks that cannot be completed by deadline and setting unrealistic and impossible goals● Interference or sabotage● Treating a worker differently than peers and coworkers are treated● Excessive, impossible, conflicting work expectations or demands● Inequitable and harsh treatment● Invalid or baseless criticism, faultfinding, and unwarranted blame● Accusatory or threatening statements● Humiliation, public reprimands, or obscene language*https://www.thebalance.com/types-of-bullying-2164322I hope this blog helps each of us increase our sensitivity to workplace bullying, support corrective action, and be humble and kind. 35SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Deedee Myers Deedee Myers is founder and CEO of DDJ Myers, Ltd. and co-founder of the Advancing Leadership Institute.
