‘Northern Gate’ gas pipeline.

The Northern Gate gas pipeline project the hope not only for Poland but also for Ukraine. 
the “Northern Gate” gas pipeline project, designed to bring gas from the Norwegian shelf across Denmark to Poland.

The Polish government’s Plenipotentiary for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, Piotr Naimski, told a hearing in the European Parliament that Poland wants to replace supplies from Russia with supplies from the West.

The project, also known as “Norwegian corridor”, aims at bringing 10 billion cubic metres of Norwegian natural gas per year (bcm/y) to Poland by 2022. From there, some of the Norwegian gas could be sent to other countries in Central Europe, such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, the Baltic states and even Ukraine. Currently, Poland consumes 14 bcm/y of gas.

The total amount of 10 bcm/y doesn’t look huge in comparison with the projected capacity of a project Poland opposes – the North Stream 2 pipeline, which has a projected capacity of 55 bcm/y.

The project’s history dates back to 2009. In 2013 the Commission granted the status of “Project of common interest” for Baltic Pipe, one of the components of the “Northern Gate”. In 2015, the Connecting Europe Facility gave a grant for a feasibility study.

Commission Vice-President in charge Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič, who spoke at the hearing, said that the “initial thought” of the EU executive was that this was a very important project. A feasibility study will be ready by the end of the year, and next year, the “open season” will be held, meaning that commercial entities will express their interest in buying gas from the new route.

Naimski said that Russian gas in Poland was more expensive than in Western European countries, which are more distant than Poland. He said that his country wanted security of supply at the lowest possible price and that it saw the project as a competitor to Nord Stream 2, which also aims at selling gas in the Central European market.
The target date for completing the project is 2022 and by 2019 Poland wants to reach the “point of no-return” for the completion of the project, the Polish official explained. In comparison, the completion of Nord Stream 2 is scheduled for 2019.

Meetings at all political levels, including at the level of presidents, have been held with Norway and Denmark over the project, Naimski said, adding that on the political side, there were no obstacles for the project.

However, the Norway’s Ambassador to the EU, Oda Helen Sletnes, emphasised that what was important was that the project be commercially viable. She said Norway exported 114 bcm in 2015, the country being the second largest exporter of gas to the EU after Russia, and that the production is expected to remain stable for the next 20 years.

To choose the pipeline option the industry needs assurances, the Norwegian diplomat stated.

Vibeke Pasternak Jorgensen, Deputy Permanent Representative of Denmark to the EU, also said that the market should be the main driver in decision-making. The feasibility study will enable a decision on the future of the project, she said. asked Naimski what had prevented the project from being realised earlier, as there had been two previous attempts in the recent past. He explained that the problem had been the long-term gas contract of Poland with Gazprom. Once the contract expires in 2022, this shouldn’t be a problem, he said.

Šefčovič said that sometimes similar infrastructure projects need “strategic assistance”, and that the EU executive will make its decisions, one the feasibility study and the open season will shed more light on.

NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that during the missile tests, the intended targets were reached by the  missiles. that proved its combat characteristics.

Russia outraged over Ukraine's Crimean test missiles

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) has strongly objected to what it says is Ukraine's attempts to encroach on Russian sovereign airspace after the latter warned of impending ballistic missile tests over the Black Sea region near Crimea later this week.

The agency said in a statement that Ukraine had informed it, via a NOTAM, that it would be conducting the tests on December 1 and 2 within a zone of airspace within the Simferopol Flight Information Region (FIR) which is under de-facto Russian control.

"It is obvious that the Ukrainian side is pushing extremely provocative, politically motivated acts to beyond the bounds of reasonable engagement," Rosaviatsia said. "Global civil aviation is based on the principles of absolute priority of safety first, rather than political expediency."

Although Moscow has since lodged a diplomatic complaint with Kiev, Ukraine has dismissed them stating that it is simply exercising its territorial rights and that it has followed all international conventions. Kiev still lays claim to the Crimean peninsula despite its unilateral annexation by Russia in early 2014.

"Ukraine carries out the missile tests within the framework of all the international obligations and treaties," Ukraine's National Security and Defence Council Secretary, Oleksander Turchinov, said. "That's why we ask Russia not to hinder the tests by its hysterics and provocations."

Rosaviatsia has since said that despite Ukraine's assertions, flights over the Crimea are in no danger and that airspace over the peninsula will not be closed. The only airlines currently serving Simferopol on a scheduled basis include Aeroflot, Alrosa Aviakompania, Orenburzhye, Red Wings (Russia), S7 Airlines, Ural Airlines, VIM Airlines, and Yamal Airlines.

Follow these safety tips when using lithium batteries during your flight.
  • To prevent overheating, insert lithium-metal batteries correctly, according to the polarity marked on the battery and your electronic device.
  • To prevent heat from building up, do not cover your device’s charger when in use.
  • Do not let lithium batteries come into contact with metal objects, or mix with unpacked batteries, as this may cause them to short-circuit.
  • Do not leave devices plugged into the charger for longer than necessary. Once fully charged, disconnect and turn the charger off.
  • Do not place heavy objects on electronic devices or allow them to get wet.
  • Do not leave lithium-ion batteries unattended while charging.
  • Do not carry damaged or recalled batteries and equipment on-board

Archaeologists discovered 40 ancient shipwrecks at the bottom of the Black Sea.

A group of maritime archeologists studying sea levels in the Black Sea have uncovered over 40 shipwrecks this year as a “complete bonus.”

The Black Sea Maritime Archeology Project has been trawling the seabed to understand how quickly the water level rose after the last Ice Age, 20,000 years ago. But their surveys ended up uncovering dozens of previously unknown wrecks. Many of the discoveries are in excellent condition, thanks to low oxygen levels below 150 meters, which slows decay.

“The wrecks are a complete bonus, but a fascinating discovery, found during the course of our extensive geophysical surveys,” said Jon Adams, a University of Southampton maritime archaeologist and principal investigator of the project, in a statement.

The team took thousands of still photographs of the shipwrecks, and then used photogrammetry, a technique that uses software to calculate the positions of millions of points in space, to build 3D models of the discoveries.
Some of the ships discovered are thousands of years old, dating to the Byzantine empire, while others are from the Ottoman period.
Hulls, masts, tillers, and rudders are all clearly discernible. “Certainly no one has achieved models of this completeness on shipwrecks at these depths,” said Adams.

Ukrainian Andriy Khud has traveled 7000 km on Tesla S and tested corporative services in Europe

More than 7,000 km from Lvov to Mallorca and back,  2000 kW power and the replacement of the front tires - this is the result of travel to Europe of  Andriy Khudo on Tesla Model S.
Along the way in France there was big issue: broken through tire

Andriy Khudo drives a Tesla Model S since April 2015 and is very happy with his choice
Per day the auto has traveled 100-150 kilometers, the charge is more than enough, the average consumption was 255 W / km.
In addition, according to Andriy, automobile expenses were lower by 10-15 times, if earlier filling Mersedes-Benz G-klass c consumption of 23 l / 100 km gasoline A95 took 150-200 000 per year, for the first year of use Tesla energy costs were less than 10 000 UAH
In general, it is difficult to compare Tesla  with another car : driving philosophy is quite different. For instance inside the BMW 7 Series I like  the quality of materials, the Tesla in this respect quite ascetic. But the electric car much faster acceleration and virtually zero costs of electricity charging, compared with petrol cars.  
After the first year and 40,000 the owner of electric vehicle mileage went to Vienna for the planned service - as a result found that the car needs a minimal amount of work and simply replaced the cabin filter. 

The first incident happened in Europe with the Ukrainian traveling this summer. At first, all was quiet - the machine is easy to overcome at 500-800 km per day. The EU is well covered with a supercharger, enough charge for 20-30 minutes - and you can go furtherHowever, in France near the city of Narbonne the front left wheel of Tesla was broken.  It was good quality of Pirelli tires, had time to drive only 10 000 km, but the electric car itself is very heavy - perhaps this explains wear and tear. 
- I called the French Tesla Service to ask for help. They asked where the car is registered. I said. "In Ukraine" He said: "Well, this country is under our guarantee does not fall, can not help you!"
I, of course, in a popular form ... explained to him the values and mission of "Tesla" (after all, just read a book about Elon Musk) and recalled the value of the car ".
After that, the service officer consulted with management and offered Ukrainian evacuator truck and on the question  where to find the radius of the wheel 21 - 245/35 - said he did not know. Andriy could not find him in Narbonne right wheels due to their non-standard size - and again called the Tesla service for help. "The genius response of servise manager from Tesla was, well, you can  Google like me ... I do not know where you can get  such wheels"
 As a result, the owner of the electric vehicle was helped when BMW service: they found a right tire and in  one day they delivered the right tire  to the BMW service center in Narbona.
In general, the owner of Tesla Model S is satisfied with his trip and will travel to Europe by its electric car in the future. 
"On the day I drove by 500-700 km. The wheel issue knocked down my plans, but even if you go a day up to 800 km - is quite acceptable ride.   But this is in Europe, where there is a good supercharger coverage. In Ukraine, I would not cover  such distance because in Ukraine the station can charge a maximum of 100-120 km per hour. During one leg of the journey in 1555 kilometers from Narbonne to Dresden, where Andriy Khudo was catching up time spent on replacement of tire, a clean driving time was about 12 hours and charging at Tesla Supercharger took more than 8 hours.
In fact , that if the cars drives on one charge long distance and charged more than 80-90% of the battery the charging time significantly increases immediately.
Fully charge the battery on the Tesla Superchargers - about 1 hour 20 minutes - one and a half hours. 
Of course, if drive 100 km / h, the electric km coincide with the real, but then must go longer.
But if drive faster, the electric kilometers are by a factor of 1.5 to 1.7 with real.
If you go for example over 200+ km / h, the flow rate will be somewhere 2,5+ electrical /km in compare with 1 km of real distance "- says Andriy.
