  • UNDP/Africa Motors in Ambulance Procurement Saga

    first_imgAmidst allegations that some local vendors are working behind the scenes to make a windfall during this national Ebola calamity in Liberia, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has debunked allegations that it was working in sync with the National Ebola Taskforce to procure about 17 ambulances to help in the fight against the deadly Ebola scourge.One of the vendors participating in the bid to supply the ambulances said that the whole process was shrouded in an unholy, unprofessional aura (atmosphere). “We are bringing this to the press because we are afraid that a certain firm wants to manipulate the process to take undue advantage”, our informants, who preferred anonymity said.This revelation was also corroborated by a source close to the Ebola Taskforce who asked not to be named.Our source explained that when it became obvious that there was a need for the importation of more ambulances to facilitate the transport of Ebola-affected patients and the collection of dead Ebola bodies, the Taskforce approached the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in a bid to have the latter help in bringing the ambulances into Liberia. Our reporter also gathered that the Taskforce approached a number of vendors soliciting quotations for the importation of ambulances. This was confirmed by James Dorbor Jallah, Coordinator of the Taskforce.The Daily Observer, acting on the tip off, immediately contacted UNDP to authenticate the veracity in the allegation.On whether the UNDP advised the National Ebola Taskforce or had a conversation relative to the procurement of ambulances at the unit cost of US$33,000, Augusta Pshorr, Communication Specialist at the UNDP, said on August 13, 2014, the UNDP received a message from the Taskforce that in response to the Ebola emergency, the Government of Liberia wanted to procure 17 ambulances for immediate use, and wanted to know whether UNDP could help.Pshorr further indicated that before UNDP could respond, it (UNDP) was advised that given the urgency, action had been taken to procure 12 ambulances that would be available in 30 days; but the question was whether UNDP would assist in lifting them by air. UNDP promised to check on available options and advise accordingly, which she said UNDP could.Pressed further on the results of the UNDP/Ebola Taskforce interaction relative to the overseas procurement of ambulances, Pshorr said it was “Just through exchanges, but in the meantime, UNDP offered to provide assistance in any future procurement needs using its procurement system that responds to emergencies like Ebola.”By these exchanges, Pshorr could not tell the current status of the transaction and could not tell the Daily Observer whether the exchanges between the two institutions had ended in a deadlock.Though Pshorr claimed that the UNDP did not know the details of the Taskforce ambulance importation transaction, our source at the UNDP says that after learning of the Taskforce solicitation of quotations from vendors, it (UNDP) alerted the Taskforce of the alleged breach but the Taskforce downplayed Pshorr’s advice and went ahead to negotiate a deal with the Africa Motors to import 12 ambulances at the unit cost US$ 66,000.Since the outbreak of the Ebola malady accounting for the death of over 1,000 Liberians and other nationals in Liberia, there have been alleged attempts by some service providers, international organizations and some members of the national Ebola Taskforce to work out a scheme to purchase ambulances far beyond their market value.When contacted, an official of the Africa Motors, Mohammed Batsam, said after they were approached by the Taskforce to provide quotations for the procurement of 12 ambulances, and they forwarded all of the necessary quotations projecting US$66,000 per unit to the Task Force.Batsam said all of the requisite documents were forwarded to the Taskforce, including a Performance Bond from the GT Bank and they are awaiting the response of the Taskforce.When asked whether Africa Motors was colluding with some members of the Taskforce to bring into Liberia ambulances at a unit cost double the US$33,000 as suggested by the UNDP, Batsam denied the allegation, addin, “We have always been partners of the Liberian government and people.”He said the ambulances they promised to bring in the country are 4×4 Toyota Land Cruiser jeeps fully air-conditioned with all of the appropriate accessories and state of the art equipment that should be in an ambulance.Up to press time, Batsam said the deal had not been concluded, but added that once it was concluded, the Toyota Land Cruiser ambulances which are made in Japan will be lifted from the United Arab Emirates.The Africa Motors executive denied the allegation that his company was colluding with insiders at the Ebola Taskforce to sell an ambulance far above the price of US$33,000 allegedly proposed by the UNDP. When contacted, Mary Broh, Director of the General Services Agency, invited James Dorbor Jallah, Coordinator of the Taskforce, who clarified that the Taskforce did solicit quotations from vendors to be appraised for the subsequent procurements of additional ambulances to help augment the strength of ambulances currently in the fleet, helping in the collection of suspected patients of Ebola and the dead.Jallah explained that following the perusal of all of the quotations, the Taskforce will make a determination on which company or companies to engage to bring in the ambulances.Since the Ebola disease outbreak here, there have been a mismatch between the number of people dying from the disease and the number of ambulances needed to take suspected patients to isolation centers and to convey the dead to the crematorium or burial sites. The conspicuous absence of ambulances at major health centers across the country has exposed the weakness in Liberia’s health system.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Successes outweigh failures in Guyana – ExxonMobil

    first_imgNew oil frontierBy Samuel SukhnandanAs Guyana prepares to become an oil-producing nation, the discovery of what is commonly known as black gold has been unprecedented, so much so that most of the offshore oil explorations have been successful with just a few disappointments.This point was underscored by Senior Director, Public and Government Affairs at ExxonMobil, Kimberly Brasington, who told Guyana Times in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that this speaks well for a country where there is limited information and data that would inspire exploration.ExxonMobil Public and Government Affairs Senior Director Kimberly BrasingtonExxonMobil has so far experienced great exploration success in Guyana with seven previous discoveries: Liza, Liza Deep, Payara, Pacora, Snoek, Ranger, and Turbot. The company also plans to drill a new well dubbed Long Tail, which has the possibility of becoming a new prospecting area also.“We’ve drilled 13 wells to date and 11 of them would have been successful and then we had the two dry holes,” Brasington said. She was referring to the Soribrum well, which failed to encounter commercial quantities of hydrocarbons during drilling last week and SkipJack-1 in September 2016.Brasington said in the oil exploration business, the percentage of success is one in every five, or one in every 10 wells drilled, but in the case of Guyana, the successes have far outweighed the failures. “In best cases, one in five is what we see around the world success rate, and here we are, 11 out of 13 wells where we have encountered hydrocarbons. So, I guess that’s an important point to make,” she added.The ExxonMobil official also noted that with more discoveries, there is now a greater chance for Guyana to earn more, as the initial prediction was that 100,000 barrels of oil could be produced each day, but that figure has increased a bit based on new discoveries that the company has announced.According to Brasington, it was estimated that for Liza Phase One, that well would produce 100,000 to 120,000 barrels of oil per day, which in essence meant that every nine days it would produce one million barrels. Liza Phase Two is expected to produce double that which will take it to 220,000 barrels per day.“So, if you have Liza Phase Two comes on stream around 2022, which is the estimate…so in 2022, you have phase one and phase two both producing, you’ll have around 350,000 barrels being produced per day. And then we start talking publicly about boat number three, which would potentially produce for Payara and Pacora…that’s a bit hypothetical, but it comes on around 2024…so it just continues to increase.”However, Brasington explained that several things would have to take place in order for that to happen, which means the company would have to discover that the oil was there and give the best estimate on what it thought was there. The development option will finally determine the amount of barrels per day.The Stena Carron is currently drilling the Liza 5 well, which will likely be followed by Long Tail.The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres. Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is the operator, and holds a 45 per cent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd, Hess Corporation’s subsidiary, holds a 30 per cent interest, and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana Limited holds a 25 per cent interest.Since ExxonMobil’s 2015 oil find, Guyana has attracted international attention and precipitated intense sensitisation exercises. In May 2015, Exxon confirmed that more than 295 feet of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs were encountered at its Liza 1 exploration well.In late June 2016, Exxon’s drilling results at Liza 2 revealed more than 58 metres of oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs in Upper Cretaceous formations.The well was drilled to 5475 metres at 1692 metres water depth. Drilling results confirmed recoverable resources to be between 800 million and 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent.The company had announced that it made its third significant discovery in its drilling explorations offshore Guyana. Its partner, Hess Corporation, had noted that the Liza 3 exploratory well’s net value could be US$6.2 billion, based on calculations from the Bank of Montreal (BMO) Capital Markets.Drilling on Payara began on November 12, 2016, with initial total depth reached on December 2, 2016. In January of 2017, the oil giant announced it had struck some 95 feet of oil reservoirs in its Payara-1 well, targeting the same type of reservoirs as the well’s Liza counterpart.Oil was discovered in the Turbot-1 well in October of 2017. According to the oil company, following the discovery, the well reservoir was 75 feet deep. Drilling has been ongoing at the Turbot well since August 2017.More oil was found at the Pacora-1 drill site, some 107 miles from the coast of Guyana. This would be the seventh major find by Exxon since May 2015. It is understood that additional exploration drilling is planned on the Stabroek Block for 2018, including potential appraisal drilling at the Ranger discovery.ExxonMobil Guyana, as operator, in partnership with Hess and CNOOC Nexen, has discovered more than 3.2 billion barrels of recoverable oil in the 6.6 million-acre Stabroek Block.Guyana will officially begin oil production in 2020.last_img read more

  • EnCana Bombings case has cost the RCMP over $1 million

    first_imgThe Mounties and Calgary-based Encana Corporation are hoping a half million-dollar reward will entice someone to come forward with information about the series of oil patch bombings in the South Peace. Encana facilities near Tom’s Lake have been hit by bombs four times since mid-October and while damage has been minimal and no one has been hurt, those remain major concerns if the attacks continue. In conversation with Adam Reaburn, following one of the news briefings yesterday, announcing the reward, RCMP Sgt. Tim Shields and EnCana spokesman Alan Boras, talked about those concerns and the cost of the now three month old investigation… [asset|aid=805|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=0834b7ca58b6e473f36cb8251d2a402c-Shields & Boras_1_Pub.mp3] Sergeant Shields reiterated the police have identified “persons of interest” in the case, but those people and others are not co-operating with the investigation. He won’t say why they aren’t co-operating but the Mounties are appealing to family and friends of those persons to come to police with any information they may have to share.- Advertisement –last_img read more

  • Dannielynn, friends mark heiress tot’s first birthday

    first_imgSome guests arrived in limousines and stretch Humvees, bearing large stuffed animals and other gifts. One guest was seen carrying a large pencil drawing of Dannielynn. A hot-air balloon shaped as a birthday cake adorned the front yard. Yellow police tape stretched around the yard in the posh neighborhood, and about a half-dozen off-duty police officers guarded the property. One guest, Tina Showalter of Louisville, said she had known Birkhead most of his life. Showalter said she left the party about 15 minutes after arriving mainly because it was so crowded. “Everything is a little frenzied in there,” she said. Showalter said that in the backyard there was “a huge castle as big as a house,” along with bubble machines and a white carriage. About a dozen onlookers hoped to get a glimpse of a celebrity, but they left disappointed. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Collector says he’s ‘on O.J.’s’ side’ in heist

    first_imgLAS VEGAS – A sports memorabilia collector who accused O.J. Simpson of armed robbery said Saturday that he was “on O.J.’s side” and wanted the case dropped. “I want this thing to go away. I have health problems,” said Alfred Beardsley, the collector who told police Thursday that Simpson and several other men stormed a Las Vegas hotel room and stole memorabilia at gunpoint. Beardsley, of Burbank, indicated Saturday that he was not interested in pursuing the case. “I have no desire to fly back and forth to Las Vegas to prosecute this,” he told The Associated Press. “How are they going to have a witness who’s on O.J.’s side?” Beardsley said he called police only because the items were valuable and if he had not reported them as stolen, he would be “held accountable for all the stuff.” Police could not immediately be reached for comment on whether Beardsley’s apparent change of heart would affect the investigation. Earlier, Las Vegas police said they were questioning one of the three or four men who was thought to have accompanied Simpson to the hotel room. No arrests had been made and police were still trying to determine what took place before Simpson left the room with memorabilia he says had been stolen from him, Lt. Clint Nichols said. Police think a weapon was involved and they want to review hotel surveillance tapes to help sort it out. That will include unraveling the contorted relationships between the erstwhile athlete and a cadre of collectors that has profited from his infamy since he was found liable in the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. At least one of the men considered Simpson a close friend. One had been his licensing agent. Another had collected Simpson items for years. But times have changed. In a Saturday phone interview with the AP, Simpson declared: “None of these guys are friends of mine.” Beardsley was once a Simpson defender and ally but had recently appeared “sympathetic” with the families of people Simpson was accused of killing, an attorney for the family of Ron Goldman said. Another sports collector, Bruce Fromong, once testified for the defense in the civil trial brought by the families of Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. Now Fromong says Simpson robbed him, along with Beardsley, at gunpoint in the room at the Palace Station casino. Simpson, 60, said he was just trying to retrieve memorabilia, particularly photos of his wife and children. There were no guns, he told The Associated Press. There was no break-in, he said. The man Simpson accused of stealing the items from him is Mike Gilbert, another one-time associate. As Simpson’s licensing agent in the late 1990s, Gilbert admitted snatching Simpson’s Heisman Trophy and other items from his client’s Brentwood home as payment for money he said was owed to him. He later turned the items over to authorities, except for the trophy’s nameplate. Gilbert swore he’d go to jail before turning the nameplate over to the Goldman family, which was trying to collect on the $33.5 million civil judgment won against Simpson. Gilbert later surrendered it under court order. He apparently remained tight with his client through the ordeal. “It has absolutely not affected our relationship at all,” Gilbert said in October 1997. Since then, according to Simpson, their relationship has changed. Simpson told AP he believes Gilbert stole items from a storage locker once held in Simpson’s mother’s name. Attempts to reach Gilbert by phone were unsuccessful. Simpson, who lives in Miami, said he expected to find the stolen items when he went to an arranged meeting Thursday. Goldman family attorney David Cook said Beardsley called him several times with the hopes of arranging a deal. “When I spoke with him, my impression was that he was very sympathetic to the Goldmans,” Cook said. That’s not the position Beardsley, who once tried to arrange lucrative autograph signings for Simpson, took in 1999, before a major auction of Simpson’s sports collectibles, including his Heisman. “It bothers me that I’m putting money in the Goldman and Brown pockets,” Beardsley told the AP. “I believe he’s not responsible for this crime, and I think there are a lot of people who believe that.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • KILKENNY LEGEND JJ DELANEY GUEST OF HONOUR AT BUNCRANA BORD NA NOG PRESENTATION

    first_imgBuncrana GAA News:Reserve Intermediate Final  Buncrana 1-08 Gaeil Fhánada 0-04 CLG Bun Cranncha overcame existing champions Gaeil Fhánada to take the Intermediate Reserve Championship title back to The Scarvey.Kevin Treacy got our mighty  men off to a flying start  in the 9th minute with his first of many scores of the day followed by another from 45.  Adrian McColgan stretched the lead in the 18th minute following shortly by Noel Mc Laughlin and David Bell sending  the boys in at half time with a 0-5 to 0-0.  A 48th minute goal by Kevin Treacy ended any hopes of a comeback for Gaeil Fhánada, who were left to count the cost of 11 wides  and with this Tracey ended his winning steak with 2 more points in added time.The aim for this side this season was to prepare the club’s younger players for the first fifteen and on the evidence of this game there are four or five members of this panel who will make that step up with ease next season.Buncrana: Ryan McElhinney; John Doherty, Andrew McLaughlin, Ronan Doherty; Simon McGrory, Adrian McColgan (0-1), Aedan Stokes; Gavin McElhinney, Stephen Dean McFadden; Noel McLaughlin (0-1), Kieran McNicholas, William McLaughlin; Shane McClean, Kevin Treacy (1-5, 2 ’45), David Bell (0-1). Subs: Stephen McGonigle for Stokes (44), Paul McGonigle for McClean (47), Kevin McClean for N.McLaughlin (55), Patrick Duffy for McElhinney (60), Conor O’Donnell for McNicholas (60).Donegal Ladies League Division Two  Buncrana 1-10 St Mary’s Convoy 2-2 The strength and commitment of our senior ladies panel was on show in Burt on Sunday. Having started their league campaign in March and winning a County Championship Title and progressing to the Ulster semi final, the panel were given the bank holiday weekend off to relax from football and spend some time with their families. Their successful league campaign over the months seen them qualify for a league final against Convoy but unfortunately the fixture was fixed for the Sunday of the bank holiday weekend. The club was unsuccessfully in trying to arrange a rescheduling of the fixture and the match went ahead in Burt on Sunday morning. Our ladies team that took to the field was missing 11 players but the brave supporters that travelled to Burt saw a panel of 21 girls who were eager to compete in this final and represent their club to the best of their ability and try and win this final. This is testament to the commitment of this panel and the underage teams who came to help their club in their hour of need. The girls played against the wind in the first half and from the very start showed they were up for the challenge and Paula Mc Grory in her new midfield role scored a point straight from the throw in. The mid field was controlled by Paula and Deidre Grant and along with the forward players kept most of the play in the Convoy half.  At half time Convoy were kept to just 2 scores (1 -1) and this was down to hard work and pressure put on their forwards by our defence, ..score at half time was Buncrana  0- 6 Convoy 1 – 1. The second half was a different affair and Convoy put up a stronger challenge and it was nip and tuck for  long periods and both sides failing to convert their scoring chances.  Despite missing several scoring opportunities Buncrana scored 1 – 4 while Convoy were again kept to 2 scores 1-1. The final scoreline was Buncrana 1 – 10 Convoy 2 – 2. The ladies have added another trophy to their collection of silverware and will play in Division 1 next year along with Termon, Glenfin, Moville, St Eunans, Carndonagh and Milford. It will be a big test for them but one which they will relish and will build and learn from and hopefully win some more titles along the wayU16 Hurling Derry League Final Buncrana 3-13 Ballinascreen 2-10Buncrana u16 hurlers completed their remarkable season with a convincing home win against Derry kingpins Ballinascreen in the last Derry League fixture and ultimately claim the Derry league title,this league actually included teams from Armagh and Tyrone as well.The boys were on top from the throw in and were never behind throughout the game , and although wasteful at times in front of goal ,were always doing enough to stay on top.First half points from Arran Craig,Dylan Duffy,Paul Tourish, and Ben roe Doherty left the the Scarvey boys 0:8 to 0:4 , in front at the halftime whistle,Ballinascreen came to within a point after the resumption of the second half with a soft goal conceded, but our boys had belief and began to take back control around the centre area, a scrambled buncrana goal from an initial Arran Craig attempt eased any fears of a Derry comeback,Screen replied with another goal, Buncrana then hit a purple patch in the next 10 minutes too basically seal the game, Oisin Grant got probably the score of the game, receiving the ball on the 21 yard line beat 2 defenders an unleashed an unstoppable shot to the back of the net, further points from Dylan,and Ben help build the lead, then up stepped Jack Callaghan to claim a fitting and deserved goal to seal the win driving the ball to the back of the net.,Final Score 3:13 to 2:10The team can take great credit in this achievement and is testament to their individual and collective ability,and hopefully these boys will continue to build on this win and be a backbone for future senior sides in the club.The platform for this win was based on a tight defence Mark Craig deputised in nets for missing Jason Campbell, but had great cover in front from Fiachra,Oisin (roe) Oisin Hegarty,Mathew Wilson,John Vaughan and Pjmc Carron.in the Middle third Dylan, Paul,Ben, Niall and Oisin were simply dominant,livily Arran Craig had a game to remember along with hard working Darren Connolly and Gabhan Kelly.but highlight of the second half was Jack Callaghans net buster.
