    Turku’s STX shipyard is expected to receive a new owner by the end of June. Prime Minister Katainen denies that the early public announcement of the sale is politically motivated.

    According to Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen (National Coalition Party), state involvement in the ownership of STX’s Turku shipyard is difficult to avoid.

    Prime Minister Katainen told Yle’s Radio Suomi that the government could, over time, sell its stake to private owners if the planned buyout took place. The State of Finland and German cruise liner builder Meyer Werft are considering the purchase of STX Finland's Turku operations from the current Korean owner.

    “The state’s central goal is not to own the shipyard or to be a shipbuilding entrepreneur,” says Katainen. “But if the shipbuilding business in Finland is to be seen as competitive in the future, then the central goal is that it should be possible. As a result we are ready to take part as a minority shareholder.”

    According to Katainen, the State's participation will depend on finding a private industrial majority shareholder. He says that Meyer Werft, or any other similar firm could be considered.

    Katainen denies that the upcoming race for NCP leadership had a bearing on the early publication of the letter of intent related to the sale.

    “These issues can''t be politicised,” said Katainen.

    The adjustment of global ports to handle larger containerships is well underway, but the first objective in many cases is well shy of the trend of the order book. While attention is focused on the new fleet of 18,000 teu vessels, the upgrades contemplate ships just over half that size.

    That is certainly so in the Americas, where the Panama Canal is being enlarged to accommodate up to 13,000 teu, not the larger ships, and collateral ports up and down the East Coast are planning on the services of the 10,000-teu variety.

    The 18,000+ teu ultra large container ship (ULCS) is being built for the Asia–Europe market, and their usage may be locked in there, due to its dependency on accompanying investments in deep ports and inland distribution capabilities, and access to major cargo markets.

    Meanwhile, ports eager to achieve a place in the container sun have purchased larger container cranes and are committing to a $1bn port upgrade that has become ubiquitous.

    Ports up and down the U. S. East Coast have been dredging and upgrading to adjust to the future sizing of the Panama Canal, which is now being pushed back to 2016.

    Last week, U.S. House and the Senate conferees agreed to end a torturous legislative deadlock and permit ports to pay the cost of deepening harbors and then seek reimbursement from the government once the project is authorized. The last dredging legislation was passed seven years ago.

    If finally approved, this would clear the way for various projects, starting with the deepening of the Sabine-Neches Waterway that connects the oil-refining hub of Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas to the Gulf of Mexico. Another would permit the start of dredging the 30-mile run to the Port of Savannah so as to accommodate larger ships transiting an expanded Panama Canal.

    A new entrant has joined the Panama expansion parade. In Cuba, that island is extolling the virtues of its newly opened port at Mariel, outside of Havana. The $1bn Brazil-sponsored port, designed to handle up to 1 million teu, is deemed a keystone in the eventual lifting of the US trade embargo.

    In Angola, the port has installed new cranes and reduced cargo unloading time as the government reviews a plan to build Africa's biggest shipping terminal to challenge the current leader at Durban. The port would handle ships up to 13,000 teu, according to its backers, but funding has not been arranged.

    For use in Petronas’ Bintulu LNG Train 9 project

    SAL Heavy Lift has delivered a cryogenic heat exchanger for use in Petronas’ LNG Train 9 project in Bintulu, Malaysia.

    SAL Heavy Lift’s Annagret, a Type 161A vessel with 650-tonne lift capacity, carried the 257-tonne exchanger manufactured by Air Products. The cargo measured 50.7 meters long, 5.66 meters wide and 6.06 meters high, SAL said in a statement.

    “A cryogenic heat exchanger is the effective heart of an LNG plant,” Justin Archard, managing director for SAL Heavy Lift across Southeast Asia and Australasia, said. “They are incredibly valuable and tremendously sensitive pieces of technology and require very special handling.”

    The cryogenic heat exchanger was collected in Fairless Hills, Penn. in the U.S. for transport to Bintulu.

    The LNG Train 9 project will add 3.6 million tonnes per annum to the Bintulu complex’s existing 24 mtpa capacity.

    JGC with its Malaysian subsidiary JGC (Malaysia) was in 2013 awarded the US$2 billion engineering, procurement and construction contract. LNG Train 9 is scheduled to begin production by the end of 2015.

    Iraq has approved two deals worth nearly US$1 billion to run operations at Rumaila, the country’s largest oil field.

    UK-based Petrofac was awarded a US$538.5 million management contract for Rumaila field projects, while China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corp. won a US$425 million engineering, procurement and construction contract to build a new power station. Rumaila is located in southern Iraq, about 32 kilometers from the Kuwaiti border.

    The Iraqi government plans to triple oil production capacity from today’s 3 million barrels a day to 9 million. Production from Rumaila accounts for more than a third of the country’s total output. The oilfield is being developed by Britain’s BP and Chinese partner CNPC.
