Malaysia’s Bumi Armada and India’s Shapoorji Pallonji Oil & Gas have established a joint venture company in Ghana.The Joint Venture named Bumi Armada Shapoorji Pallonji Ghana Limited (“BASPG”), was established on June 5, 2017, in Ghana, and it received the certificate of incorporation June 10, 2017.The two companies have joined forces hoping to combine their respective capabilities and expertise in „with the intention of ultimately securing the award of a floating, production, storage and offloading (“FPSO”) project in Ghana.”“The JV arrangement will enable the Bumi Armada Group to expand and carry out its business, as well as mitigate its financial and project risk exposure in respect of any FPSO project awarded, by leveraging on the parties’ strong history and experience in fabrication and construction related activities and the local experience,” Bumi Armada said.
“I shot it, I said, ‘Listen, if that doesn’t go in, go bury my head in a hole,’ “ Redick said. “Like, there’s no way that’s not going in.”It was a sloppy game, to be sure, with the Clippers committing 18 turnovers and the Grizzlies 14. But the Clippers emerged victorious, and that’s all Jordan cared about.“Being able to finish the game shows our maturity,” he said. “I don’t think we would have won this game a few years ago.”Barnes has been missed. Clippers guard Austin Rivers, for example, could not say enough about how Barnes made him feel when he (Rivers) was traded to the Clippers in January, becoming the first in NBA history to play for a head coach who was also his father. That alone was enormous pressure.The younger Rivers played poorly in his first game with the Clippers, going 0 for 4 from the field in a loss to Cleveland. Barnes was there for him.“After that game I was like, ‘Man, this is terrible,’” Rivers said. “Matt came up to me and is like, ‘Man, we’re with you, relax, you’re going to get it. It’ll take time.’ Matt was the first one to tell me that and was with me the whole way.“Once I got my rhythm and started playing well with the Clippers, he acted the same way, like, ‘I told you.’ He’s an emotional guy and he says things. But people don’t give Matt the credit he is as a person. Matt’s actually a really great guy, man. Great teammate.”Barnes smiled when reminded of that.“This is a cold world, man,” said Barnes, who received a nice ovation when he entered the game at 2:35 of the first quarter. “People think we’re blessed, but there is a lot of turmoil that comes with it. So being traded and moving teams, it’s difficult for us. Especially when you have family.“So it’s just to let guys know, you know, Austin was new to our team. We let him know last year we had his back and we had everything he needed and guys on this (Memphis) team have done that for me. It’s just stuff certain people do and certain people have in them to just try to make people feel comfortable.”Even coach Doc Rivers, who as president of basketball operations was the one responsible for Barnes’ departure, noticed.“Well, I thought that’s what Matt did well,” he said.The elder Rivers misses something else about Barnes, who was traded to Charlotte, which then traded Barnes to Memphis.“On the floor, I thought he was a great instigator,” the elder Rivers said. “And I still think that’s an underrated asset in our league. Not the dirty stuff, but he had an ability to get under people’s skin and that’s not a bad thing.“And I thought he was a great cutter. I think we do miss that a little bit. I thought, especially playing with the starters, Matt knew where to go.”Barnes, 35, admitted that both his career and life have been a roller-coaster ride. It was only last month he was in a physical altercation with New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher, who is in a relationship with Barnes’ estranged wife, Gloria Govan.But all and all, Barnes is good.“Considering this is the team the Clippers always used to go to war with in the playoffs, to be traded and end up in Memphis where I still have a chance to win, that was absolutely a blessing,” said Barnes, who smiled when he told reporters Clippers center DeAndre Jordan had been “talking trash” to him via text. “I’m still trying to find my way around the team a little bit and my way around the city. But besides that, I’m happy.” Up next for the Clippers are the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday in Dallas. The crowd there figures to be about as hostile as the Clippers will see this season because of Jordan reneging on a verbal agreement to sign with the Mavericks, then re-signing with the Clippers. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Matt Barnes sat in a locker room at Staples Center on Monday evening. He was in enemy territory, wearing a Memphis Grizzlies uniform after having played the previous three seasons with the Clippers, who traded him away during the off-season.“It’s bittersweet,” Barnes said before his new team was defeated 94-92 by the Clippers before 19,060 at Staples Center. “I had a lot of good times here. L.A.’s home, but I’m in Memphis now, so I’m excited about getting the opportunity to play against my former teammates.”The teams were tied 46-46 at halftime, and the Clippers led 70-66 heading into the fourth quarter after a 3-pointer by Jamal Crawford at the third-quarter buzzer.Blake Griffin led the Clippers (5-2) with 24 points and 12 rebounds. J.J. Redick scored 16 points and made a huge 3-pointer to give the Clippers the lead for good at 87-86 with 55.1 seconds to play. Redick also made three free throws with 13.3 seconds left for a 90-86 L.A. cushion. Chris Paul scored 14 points and got both poked and smacked in the eye. DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks, and Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers scored 13 and nine off the bench, respectively. Paul missed Saturday’s game against Houston with a strained groin. He played nearly 33 minutes Monday and afterward said, “It’s feeling a little bit better.”Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies (3-5) with 26 points and nine rebounds, Marc Gasol scored 18, Mike Conley had 16 and Barnes scored eight points — all in the fourth quarter. Barnes also had six rebounds, two steals and two blocks.Gasol could have tied the game with 3.5 seconds left, but he missed the second of two free throws.“It wasn’t a hard situation,” he said. “I just overthought the free throw.”Redick’s 3-pointer and free throws during a 42-second span after the Clippers had fallen behind were as big as they get. Redick was 1 of 5 from 3-point range prior to making the one that really counted.
