Pipeline technology specialist STATS has wrapped up a six-month pipeline isolation campaign offshore and onshore Malaysia.The work covered 12 pipeline isolations on behalf of partner Handal Energy for a major operator in Malaysia, and is said to be the largest integrated campaign undertaken by STATS in the region.All workscopes featured STATS’ range of Remote Tecno Plug (RTP) which provided inline pipeline isolation to allow the live repair and replacement of valves on onshore and offshore assets in West Malaysia and Sarawak.The RTPs ranged in size from 12” to 32” and teams from STATS Beranang workshop in Kuala Lumpur, backed up by personnel from the UK and UAE, worked jointly to complete the projects.Gareth Campbell, STATS Group’s regional manager for Asia Pacific, said: “With the successful completion of two 28” RTP isolations on facilities in Sarawak, this brings to a close our six month long isolation campaign in Malaysia, during which a total of 12 safety critical projects have been completed for valve repair and maintenance.“Using a combination of local expertise from our Kuala Lumpur base, supported by colleagues from Aberdeen and Abu Dhabi, we have reaffirmed our position as the primary provider of safety-critical pipeline isolation services in Malaysia, and look forward to maintaining this success with future projects already confirmed for 2020.”
On Wednesday morning, Dino Babers spoke publicly for the first time since two of his players were allegedly stabbed by former teammate Naesean Howard on Saturday evening. The first-year SU head coach said defensive back Chauncey Scissum is still in the hospital and he hopes that Scissum will be released later this week, while defensive back Corey Winfield was released on Monday.In response to an article posted on Syracuse.com Wednesday morning that cited a source saying Babers told the team to not wear any Syracuse gear in public since Howard’s “people” may still be lurking around campus, Babers heavily refuted that.“The thing about the meeting was correct. Everything else written in the article was incorrect and inaccurate,” Babers said. “I actually told them to put their Syracuse ‘S’ on and wear it proudly around campus.”Babers confirmed that earlier in the year, Howard approached him in the parking lot adjacent to Manley Field House and started a conversation. The head coach said Howard said, “’Hey, I would like to join the football team,’” to which Babers responded, “’Who are you?’”Babers then told Howard he had to go through a standard background check for walk-ons in order to be given a shot, but eventually that background check wasn’t satisfactory enough for the new staff to offer Howard a chance to walk on.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Everybody has a right to change … but patterns are something that you try to stay away from and we just decided as a staff the pattern was too strong,” Babers said. “It’s not a right to be on a football team … it’s a privilege.”MORE COVERAGE:Witness details alleged stabbing, South Campus partyDefensive back Corey Winfield out of hospital 2 days after stabbing incidentCourt documents: Naesean Howard stabbed SU football players multiple times The Tuesday morning meeting with the team wasn’t prompted by the stabbing, Babers said, and that he holds a meeting at 8 a.m. every Tuesday in the offseason. This one just happened to be the first after Winfield and Scissum were allegedly stabbed and there were no specific safety instructions given based on Saturday evening’s events.“You can’t live life looking over your shoulder,” Babers said. “I think these young men will be just fine.”Howard is due back in court at 10 a.m. on Friday. Both players he allegedly stabbed are doing well, Babers said, and when asked about Howard, Babers never mentioned him by name.“It’s a blessing both of these young men are still with us,” Babers said.
