National Grid Expansion

National Grid Expansion - U.K. natural gas grid operator National Grid PLC (NGG) has started commercial operations of its GBP310 million second capacity expansion at its Isle of Grain liquefied natural gas importation facility as scheduled, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

Following the arrival of the first commissioning cargo of LNG at the terminal in Kent, England, on Oct. 29, "the commissioning process has been completed in just over a month, delivering a 50% increase in terminal capacity for the start of winter," it said.

The total capacity of Grain has increased to 650 gigawatt hours per day, or around 59 million cubic meters of gas, enough to supply about 20% of U.K. demand, according to the statement.

The expansion provides capacity for new customers E.ON Ruhrgas, the gas unit of German utility E.ON AG (EOAN.XE), and Spain's Iberdrola (IBE.MC), together with additional capacity for existing customer U.K. utility Centrica PLC(CNA.LN).

Grain has the largest tank capacity of any terminal in the U.K. with total LNG storage availability of 1 million cubic meters. The new second unloading jetty is capable of berthing and unloading Q-Max vessels, the largest available LNG carriers in the world.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
