Fatmagul Production reduced over fuel quality concerns

Posted By :


I recommend we rent another power ship (Let’s call it “Mohannad Sultan”) to supply Fatmagul with electricity and in turn power up the Zouk Power Plant. That way we will have double the cost and pollution.

BEIRUT: The Turkish operator of the power ship hired by Lebanon has cut its electricity production because of poor quality diesel, Electricite Du Liban and Karkey Karadeniz Elektrik Uretim sources told The Daily Star denying any failure on the vessel’s generators.

An EDL spokesperson told The Daily Star that the capacity of the Fatmagül Sultan dropped because of concerns by the operator over the quality of the fuel supplied “as well as other issues”.

Under the $360 million three-year contract signed by the Energy Ministry in 2012, the Lebanese government is responsible for supplying the fuel needed to run the ship. [Link]

This is great news but what we need now is a proper law that allows and recognizes civil marriages, not a loophole in an archaic French Law back from the 1930s.

Caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel signed the civil marriage certificate of Kholoud Succariyeh and Nidal Darwish, the state-run National News Agency reported on Thursday. “By this, Succariyeh and Darwish’s union becomes the first civil marriage registered in the records of the Directorate General for Personal Affairs in Lebanon,” the NNA noted.

Eitherway, Amal has to come up with a new Zaghlouta now.
