Shell to sell upstream operations in Ireland for $1.23bn Wed, 12th Jul 2017 10:10
(ShareCast News) - Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell has agreed a deal to divest its upstream oil interests in Ireland for up to $1.23bn.
Shell reached the agreement with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board to sell its 45% stake in the Corrib gas venture.
Shell will initially receive $947m as a result of the transaction, and will receive additional payments of up to $285m between 2018 and 2025.
The Corrib gas field has caused a significant amount of controversy in Ireland, with site protests at the Mayo field leading to a consistent police presence in the area for years.
Shell's upstream director Andy Brown said the move was part of a larger plan to reshape the company's interests.
Brown said:"This transaction is consistent with Shell's strategy to concentrate our Upstream footprint where we can add most value. I'm confident that Corrib will continue to deliver energy successfully to the people and businesses of Ireland."
Connect IB Appointed G-Cloud 9 Supplier By RedstoneConnect 04 July, 2017 Connect IB (A RedstoneConnect company) is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its bid to supply cloud hosting, software and support services through G-Cloud 9. Connect IB joins its sister company, Anders+Kern, on the digital marketplace, where suppliers can find technology or people for digital projects in the public sector. The G-Cloud Framework Agreement, governed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), allows Connect IB to provide under three lots, Cloud hosting, Cloud software and Cloud support. These services are available to departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector on the Digital Marketplace. As part of the G-Cloud 9 Framework Agreement, Connect IB will offer services including the deployment, management and running of software and the development of complete digital solutions. Connect IB will also offer support in content management, wayfinding, TIMS and its very own OneSpace solution. The G-Cloud Framework offers great benefits to buying organisations within the UK public sector by allowing them to procure cloud services that are fully EU compliant and regularly refreshed, therefore ensuring the best that the market has to offer is available. Examples of those who can use the G-Cloud 9 Framework Agreement include central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations. G-Cloud 9 alone provides buyers across the public sector with access to over 19,000 services through 2,800 suppliers meaning increased access to innovation, rapid development and greater agility. By acting on behalf of the Crown, CCS will ultimately drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity. It will also push the mainstream adoption of cloud-based services by government organisations and local authorities who are looking for cost efficient, competitive and custom built solutions, such as those Connect IB offers. Keith Jump, CTO of RedstoneConnect commented: “The opportunity for Connect IB to work with the Crown Commercial Service on G-Cloud 9 is a privilege and to be successful in bids under all three lots presents a great opportunity for the business. We look forward to working closely with buyers across the public sector through the agreement.”

Ideal for large scale projects, the BlueMod+S42M seamlessly expedites device design across a wide range of industrial and consumer applications areas. The embedded sensors are necessary for high-value, fragile asset tracking, and time- or temperature-sensitive applications such as cold chain monitoring in the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries.
The release of the certified BlueMod+S42M complements the exisiting Telit portfolio of Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy modules and directly addresses the demand in the rapidly growing BLE-dependent market. A report released by IndustryARC Analysis, forecasts Bluetooth Low Energy enabled devices shipments to increase to 8.4 billion units by 2020 at a CAGR of 29%.
"Cost, power, and reliability are critical to the success of IoT applications that demand efficient Bluetooth Low Energy solutions," explained Ronen Ben-Hamou, Telit EVP of Products and Solutions. "Our new qualified Bluetooth module caters to designers of all levels with tight development, materials and manufacturing cost constraints and even tighther timelines. The beauty of the +S42M is it's simplicity: single-chip SoC, feature packed, sensibly priced, exceptional power savings, and extensive interoperability."
Full applications can be embedded in the BlueMod+S42M, which is a self-contained System-on-Chip (SoC) requiring no additional external supporting components. It is equipped with an on-board micro controller, integrated chip antenna, passive components, T°/Humidity sensor, and an accelerometer. Leveraging a rich subset of features from Telit's diverse family of BlueMod+Sx modules, including a GATT interface and Terminal I/O profile combination, the new BlueMod+S42M greatly simplifies and accelerates the development of applications.
In addition to efficient performance and low power consumption, BlueMod+S42M includes value-added features that further streamline development:
