Tunisian Christians are being recognised and accepted, even consulted by the new government,” revealed the Bishop Bill Musk, Rector of St George’s Anglican Church in Tunisia capital Tunis and Assistant Bishop for North Africa Episcopal Area in the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa & the Horn of Africa.“New believers are appearing at a fast rate and they need help in maturing and becoming meaningful church. Leaders especially need training and forming within their own context and this needs to be handled very sensitively in a Muslim-majority nation,” said the bishop.“The main goal of the Legacy Project is to provide theological training for future leaders of the North African Anglican and other church communities,” said Bishop Musk. “This will include on-site training of local leaders and bringing students from other countries in North Africa to study in Tunis.”St George’s Anglican Church in Tunis is set in a poor yet bustling community of Hafsia in downtown Tunis, famous for its large second-hand markets and has over 300 congregants. It began in 1901 as a church catering for overseas British people and especially members of its armed forces during the two World Wars.“St George’s also wants to establish facilities for community outreach to empower local people,” said the Bishop. “We want to create better facilities for hospitality such as larger kitchen facility, modern restrooms, storage space, and a worship space for small groups.“On the grounds of St George’s facilities will be established seminar rooms for theological training, classrooms and workshops for community outreach, accommodation for trainers and trainees and a medium-sized worship space for small groups.”The fundraising committee made up of church members organised a fundraising event in June this year focused on creatively raising funds to get the project underway.“God has blessed us immensely to respond to this challenge, and from within our own community we have managed to raise $100,000,” said Bishop musk. “We need others to help us and we estimate total costs of at least $300,000 to put two new builds on the church site that will help provide sustainable facilities for theological ministry formation and for outreach within the local community”“There was a time when the largest basilica in Africa was found a few miles up the road from the present St George’s Tunis – its ruins can still be seen,” said Bp Musk. “The holy seed of the martyrs from those early Roman times is issuing in new fruit today. The early church in this land did not do very well in becoming indigenous or in accepting different strands of theological and ecclesiastical expression.”Bishop Mouneer Hanna Anis, presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, officially launched the project in December last year.

nanoActiv EFT is the first micellar dispersion additive that harnesses the power of nanoparticle technology to increase initial oil and gas production Image: Nissan Chemical America wins first US patent. Photo: Courtesy of Arek Socha/Pixabay Nissan Chemical America Corporation (NCA) had its first US Patent, “Hydrocarbon Formation Treatment Micellar Solutions, “issued on Tuesday August 13, 2019 as U.S. Patent No. 10,377,942.nanoActiv EFT is the first micellar dispersion additive that harnesses the power of nanoparticle technology to increase initial oil and gas production. nanoActiv EFT is a synergistic combination of Nissan’s proprietary silicon dioxide nanoparticles, an organic solvent, and a blend of surfactants. These technologies work together to efficiently overcome problems presented by increases in water saturation and decreases in hydrocarbon mobility.“For the nanotechnology to do its job, the particles must be uniform in size and remain separate from each other. In the presence of brine, that is a very difficult thing to do,” says NCA Technology Director John Southwell. “We solved this challenge by engineering highly surface-modified brine-resistant nanoActiv particles with the ability to remain a colloidal dispersion in challenging downhole conditions.”nanoActiv EFT reaches into small pore spaces—releasing more immobilized oil than ever before—delivering significantly more efficient and complete flowback of the treatment fluids over a shorter period of time.The benefits of nanoActiv EFT are amplified when used in combination with nanoActiv HRT to syngergistically increase initial oil and gas production while reaching deeper into the fracture network creating pathways for sustained recovery.“Nissan Chemical’s nanoActiv products are the only true nanoparticle solutions in the industry. This patent is a big step forward as the nanoActiv brand continues to grow,” adds NCA President William Smith. “Our innovative products for the Oil & Gas industry consistently give operators improved returns.”Source: Company Press Release
Atlantis Resources has submitted a strategic plan to the government for the development of a tidal installation site at Raz Blanchard in Normandy, which would provide 1 GW of energy by 2025.If the project is successful, Atlantis expects this site to become the largest tidal power project, the company said.According to the Atlantis study, the Raz Blanchard has one of the best tidal energy resources in the world and, after a first production of 1 GW, the site could double its capacity by 2027.Atlantis estimates that the construction of the 2 GW site at Raz Blanchard is expected to attract €3.3 billion of investment and open up a valued €400 million worth of turbine export market per year, with the potential to create 10,000 jobs.In addition to the investment of more than €3 billion, the Atlantis proposal includes the development of a plant assembly, testing, operation and maintenance of turbines in NormandyPrior to the calls for tenders, studies have been requested by the French government to evaluate the best tidal energy sites in the French maritime waters.The independent proposal submitted by Atlantis aims to build on the success of the MeyGen project in Scotland where more than 6 GW of predictable renewable energy has been produced.
