USU Football Addresses Media Prior To Friday’s Game At Wake Forest

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah-Monday, Utah State football head coach Gary Andersen, junior quarterback Jordan Love and senior defensive tackle Devon Anderson addressed the media ahead of this Friday’s season opener at Wake Forest.Andersen called fall camp “a positive” and cited the bonding that occurred on his team because of it.He called the Demon Deacons “an explosive offense” and called their redshirt junior quarterback, Jamie Newman, “a talented quarterback.”Concerning senior defensive back DJ Williams’ move from nickel to corner, he cited the fact that Wake Forest often plays with three to four receivers, so he wants to give as many Aggies cornerbacks reps as is possible.Andersen also said wide receiver was the toughest position to determine starters for in fall camp. He also wants to wear out opponents with the Aggies’ no-huddle offense he plans to employ throughout the season.He also spoke highly of Demon Deacons senior defensive back Essang Bassey, saying he has “great reactive skills” and likely has a long career ahead of him beyond college football.Love called fall camp “a really good camp” and said the last Wake Forest game, a 46-10 Aggies loss at Winston-Salem, N.C. in 2017, was a tough experience for him.Love also confirmed he still gets butterflies before games because of how the excitement builds up for him.Anderson said it was difficult learning a new defense, but said that scheme-wise it is a better defense for the Aggies to play.Anderson said he respects Newman’s size (as he is 6-4 and 230 pounds) and lauded him for not being “scared of contact.”In closing, Anderson said it is unreal to think of himself as a senior and the Baltimore native appreciates the opportunities Utah State has afforded him Tags: Devon Anderson/Essang Bassey/Gary Andersen/Jamie Newman/Jordan Love/USU Football/Wake Forest Demon Deacons August 26, 2019 /Sports News – Local USU Football Addresses Media Prior To Friday’s Game At Wake Forest Brad Jameslast_img read more

(Credit: Qatar Petroleum) Qatar Petroleum has signed three LNG shipbuilding deals with a combined worth of more than QAR70bn ($19.23bn) with South Korean firms to address its liquefied natural gas (LNG) growth plans.The three Korean shipyards involved in the deals to reserve LNG ship construction capacity for the Qatari national oil company are Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).The three South Korean companies will reserve a major portion of their LNG ship construction capacity for the Qatari company through the year 2027.Samsung Heavy Industries president and CEO Joon Ou Nam said: “I am deeply grateful for the signing of this agreement between Qatar Petroleum and Samsung Heavy Industries. SHI promises to deliver the best quality LNG carriers with on-time delivery.“Particularly, we will build the best LNG carriers for Qatar Petroleum in terms of efficiency, reliability and HSE through the technology and workmanship developed within our company.”Through the LNG shipbuilding deals, Qatar Petroleum will secure more than 100 ships that will be part of its future LNG carrier fleet requirements. These ships will be deployed for its ongoing expansion projects in the North Field, in the US, and in other regions.Qatar Petroleum CEO comments on the LNG shipbuilding dealsQatar Minister of State for Energy Affairs and Qatar Petroleum president and CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi said: “The signing of today’s agreements with the three esteemed Korean companies reflects our commitment to the North Field expansion projects, even during these extraordinary times.“As I have previously stated, we are moving full steam ahead with the North Field expansion projects to raise Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 million today to 126 million tons per annum by 2027 to ensure the reliable supply of additional clean energy to the world at a time when investments to meet these requirements are most needed.”According to Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the new LNG ships to be delivered under the LNG shipbuilding deals will be equipped with the latest generation slow speed dual fuel engines, and will use LNG as a fuel.
