BP’s Russian ally snubs TNK

first_img BP’s Russian ally snubs TNK A SENIOR executive at BP’s newest Russian partner Rosneft said yesterday that TNK-BP is not big enough to join its Arctic exploration efforts.“They have neither the technology, nor the experience, nor the personnel,” Rosneft chief financial officer Peter O’Brien said of TNK-BP, which is owned by BP and Russian billionaires under the name AAR. The comments risk inflaming a dispute between BP and AAR, which is set to go to arbitration in Sweden this month. “Anything is possible but in reality I do not see a resolution before the start of the arbitration process,” O’Brien said.AAR has already managed to win an injunction suspending BP’s landmark share-swap with state-owned Rosneft, after it argued that TNK-BP has been unfairly left out of the Arctic-focused deal. AAR’s spokesperson was unavailable for comment yesterday, while BP declined to comment on O’Brien’s remarks. Chief executive Bob Dudley said this week that he hopes for a speedy resolution to the spat. Meanwhile, BP admitted that US regulators are considering filing charges linked to the firm’s alleged manipulation of the gas market in 2008. BP said in a statement it has co-operated with two separate US commission probes started last year, adding that “it did not engage in any inappropriate or unlawful activity”.BP shares dipped 0.6 per cent to 488p yesterday.

first_imgIncome from online giving rose 97% over past 12 months Online giving by UK donors has increased during the Covid-19 pandemic, with an overall growth of 115% in donations volume, and an income increase of 97% over the past 12 months, according to WPNC’s second annual Online Donations Report. “Covid-19 has also prompted a rise in giving to related charities, so linking your cause to topical national and global issues where possible is a key learning for organisations. The findings show that total value is up 29% on 2019, with the report also covering trends in both one-off and regular giving, as well as donor behaviour across the board: covering geography, seasonality, day of the week, and time of day.

While December remained the month with the highest number of donations, April and May saw higher volumes than previouslySunday, Monday and Tuesday are the most popular days for giving, with almost 50% of donations made on these daysThe highest spike in donations is before noon (between 11:00 and 12:00) with another spike between 16:00 and 17:00. A significant drop happens between 18:00 and 19:00, but overall 73% of donations are made between 10:00 and 21:00Average donation size in 2020 was £24.87. Large charities kept a similar value YOY, seeing a small decrease, while medium and small charities grew compared to 2019, with an average value reaching almost the same amount as large charitiesGift Aid conversion rate increased in 2020. On average it is claimed on more than 70% of donations under £75. Compared to 2019 there was a 9% increase in donors selecting this option inside the donation funnel Online giving has increased over the past year. When looking at the same donation funnels that were live in 2020, WPNC registered an overall growth of 115% in donations volume and a 97% income increase, across both one-off and regular gifts. This is far higher than the 26% increase in the volume of one-off donations, and a near-20% rise in overall value seen in 2019 compared with giving through the same channels in 2018. When looking at payment methods used for one-off donations across all charities, the volume of card payments decreased, while digital wallet payments rose in popularity. 7% of donations were made through ApplePay across all devices, including desktop. Usage on mobile-only devices was higher: for example, 46% of donations at one large charity in the analysis were made through ApplePay on mobile devices. One-off donations and regular donations are growing Due to 2020’s unique situation and the restrictions in place throughout the year, many charities with a mission not directly related to Covid-19 suffered a drop in income. Health-related charities and those focused on education experienced some of the highest growth, especially if they were able to relate their cause to the effects of the ongoing pandemic.center_img Photo by Keira Burton from Pexels “It’s also important to factor into the donor experience an increasing preference for online giving, including aspects such as mobile wallets rather than traditional types of giving. Donors want a frictionless experience, and offering them convenient ways to give will increase chances of conversion.” Other key findings The report is freely available from WPNC. The integrated agency analysed anonymised data gathered from gifts totalling more than £40m made through WPNC’s online donation platforms including goDonate to compare findings with its previous study, published in April 2020. “The trends we share in the report clearly show a significant rise in online donations for both one-off and regular giving.

Michael Whelan, a 34-year-old serial shoplifter and thief with over 213 previous convictions, was before Limerick District Court this week pleading guilty to the theft of a packet of razors worth €15 from the Ballinacurra Pharmacy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Currently serving a four-month sentence handed down at the start of January for a spate of thefts committed last September, Michael Whelan, with an address at Kylefea, Croom had previously protested to Judge O’Kelly for giving him too lenient a sentence.Judge O’Kelly asked Ted McCarthy, solicitor for the accused “is this why he continues to re-offend”.Mr McCarthy said that Mr Whelan had been looking for a longer sentence so as he could avail of “dental work while in prison” and added that the reason his client offended was to primarily feed his alcohol habit.Expressing surprise at the defendant’s response, Judge O’Kelly convicted Michael Whelan and sentenced him to one month in prison for the theft of the razors on January 4 last.Michael Whelan had similar outbursts at a previous sitting of the district court in Rathekeale when he shouted at Judge Mary  O’Halloran, “I want 12 months”.However, the judge, who previously referred to him “as a bit of a nuisance in the community to put it mildly”, then sentenced him to four months in prison for the theft of cider and razor blades from a Spar shop in Croom.
