    Enegi drops plans for buoy technology on marginal North Sea field

    A North Sea oil firm has dropped plans to use a revolutionary new technology to extract resources from a previously abandoned field – but insists it remains committed to the system.

    Enegi Oil and AB Technology had been looking to deploy a production buoy on the Fyne field, which would house production and processing equipment.

    But now Enegi is to use a self-installing floating tower, developed by Reading-based engineers GMC, to develop the field instead.

    Ukraine cuts gas supply from Russia over price row

    Ukraine is halting natural gas imports from Russia over price ai???aggressionai??? before the worldai??i??s biggest exporter of the fuel cuts supplies, raising the risk of disrupted flows to Europe.

    Ukraine will stop buying gas this month until a price agreement is reached, Energy Minister Yuri Prodan said in Kiev today. Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to meet advisers and cabinet members to discuss energy cooperation with the neighboring country, which owes more than $2.2 billion for gas supplies through March.

    About 15 percent of Europeai??i??s supplies flow through Ukraineai??i??s pipelines from Russia, making the country a linchpin in the continentai??i??s energy security. Ukraine, which buys half its gas from Moscow-based OAO Gazprom, is seeking alternative supplies, including imports from Europe. Putin has used gas as a tool to pressure the government in Kiev to abandon attempts to reorient the economy toward the European Union.

    Currently constructed at South Koreaai??i??s Geoje shipyard, Prelude will produce natural gas at sea, turn it into liquefied natural gas and then transfer it directly onto a carrier vessel for transport, at estimated volumes of 3.6million tonnes per year.
