Blog Watching week ending June 12, 2016
LNG notes and Seafest Updates made for the bulk of the items that attracted the most notice this week, with two international LNG proponents making news in the region when it comes to their development blue prints for the year ahead.
Shell hosted a Capital Market Day for investors this week with a wide ranging overview of their plans, though those living on the north coast looking for some sign of progress would find the report from the energy company just a little bit disappointing. Progress however seems in motion for a proposed LNG terminal at Grassy Point as the Australian energy company Woodside received EAO approval for their recent submission related to Application Information requirements.
Our notes on the new Rainbow pathway attracted a large readership as well, with the proposed rainbow crossing expanded into the project which saw the Cow Bay Road bridge path painted in support of LGBT members of the community.
Our week long series putting the spotlight on the weekend Seafest events also found a large audience, with two of our items providing levels to place them in our top five list for the week.
However, the top item of the week focused on LNG and the developments from Shell energy's report for investors.
