America’s push to upgrade airports gains traction as New Orleans opens new terminal later this year

Fly into New Orleans and you immediately see the construction of the airport’s new north terminal. When the $1.3 billion New Orleans terminal opens later this year, it will completely replace the existing gates at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. It’s the latest upgrade and expansion of an airport in the U.S., a key part of America’s infrastructure sorely in need of major renovations.

America's push to upgrade airports gains traction as New Orleans opens new terminal later this year

Fly into New Orleans and you immediately see the construction of the airport’s new north terminal. With 35 gates, 14 TSA lanes and plenty of room to handle the growing number of people flying in and out of the Big Easy.

“As this market continues to grow we are in better position to handle the growth in this market,” said Kevin Dolliole, the director of aviation in New Orleans.

When the $1.3 billion New Orleans terminal opens later this year, it will completely replace the existing gates at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. It’s the latest upgrade and expansion of an airport in the U.S., a key part of America’s infrastructure sorely in need of major renovations.

The Airports Council, a global industry trade group estimates U.S. airports will need $128 billion in upgrades by 2023.

“We are way, way, way behind,” former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said of the state of America’s airports compared to the other terminals around the world:

LaHood’s assessment is based on years of traveling around the globe both as a congressman and later as a member of former President Barack Obama’s cabinet. And he thinks Americans who fly around the world are tired of flying out of cramped, dated airports in the U.S. and landing in spacious, gleaming new ones overseas.

Federal regulators just removed a barrier to exporting more US natural gas

Federal regulators on Thursday broke an impasse over approving new projects to export natural gas from the United States, potentially easing the way for a flurry of applications to build the multi-billion dollar facilities.

Federal regulators just removed a barrier to exporting more US natural gas

Federal regulators on Thursday broke an impasse over approving new projects to export natural gas from the United States, potentially easing the way for a flurry of applications to build the multi-billion dollar facilities.

In doing so, the regulators approved a liquefied natural gas export terminal for the first time in two years, pushing through a disagreement over how they should assess the facilities’ contribution to climate change. However, divisions remain within the commission on the issue, and one of the four sitting members dissented from the majority decision.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday decided to approve Venture Global’s proposed Calcasieu Pass export terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, as well as a pipeline to supply the facility. The project is one of about a dozen vying to tap surging U.S. natural gas production and export LNG, a form of the fuel chilled to liquid form and shipped overseas in massive tankers.

However, applications have been held up while FERC’s four commissioners hash out the greenhouse gas issue. The five-person commission has been down one member since former commissioner and Republican Kevin McIntyre passed away last month, leaving the body split between two Democrats and two Republicans.

FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee said he’s optimistic that in light of Thursday’s deal, FERC now has a framework in place that will help the commission more expeditiously process applications.

“No question about it, it’s a top priority of mine and I think my colleagues’ as well,” he told CNBC on Friday.

Exxon Mobil and Qatar green light $10 billion project to export natural gas from Texas

Exxon Mobil and Qatar Petroleum on Tuesday announced a final decision to finance a $10 billion-plus project to export liquefied natural gas from the Texas Gulf Coast.

The decision moves forward the latest export terminal fueling growing shipments of U.S. LNG, or natural gas cooled to liquid form for overseas travel. The Department of Energy last month forecast that LNG will play a major role in the U.S. exporting more energy than it imports by 2020, a feat the nation has not achieved in nearly 70 years.

The plan to export LNG from Exxon’s Golden Pass terminal speaks to the renaissance in U.S. energy production. The facility was originally built to import LNG, but the surge in U.S. natural gas production over the last decade means American drillers are now looking overseas for buyers.

Exxon says work to retool the terminal near Port Arthur, Texas, along the Louisiana border will begin this quarter. The oil giant expects the facility to start up in 2024 and says it will be ultimately be able to produce roughly 16 million tons of LNG each year.

20 organizations offering discounts, giveaways and payment assistance during the government shutdown

As President Trump continues to spar with Congress over funding for a $5 billion border wall, roughly 800,000 workers are feeling the financial impact of the longest partial government shutdown in history.

In addition to federal government employees and contractors, restaurants and other service providers are taking a shutdown-related hit. Dan Simons, co-founder of the popular D.C. restaurant Founding Farmers, told CNBC that his business has seen a 15 to 30 percent decrease in sales since the holiday season ended due to local workers being more conservative with their spending.

Greg Chin, spokesman for Miami International Airport, told the Associated Press that they’ve had to close a terminal early over the weekend as a result of more security screeners calling out due to no pay. This means that the restaurants and shops in that terminal also had to close.

In an effort to ease the financial burden of workers and to keep business afloat, many restaurants and organizations are providing limited discounts to furloughed employees. Some companies are even offering their products or services for free.

Below are 20 businesses whose discounts, freebies and assistance you should take advantage of if you’re impacted by the current shutdown.

Government shutdown: TSA officers call in sick, Miami closes terminal

Miami International Airport will close one of its terminals early this weekend as double the usual number of Transportation Security Administration officers, working unpaid in the partial government shutdown, called in sick.

The TSA workers are among the some 420,000 federal employees deemed essential who are working without pay. Amid the shutdown, which began on Dec. 22 and is now the longest ever, TSA officers missed their first paycheck on Friday.

The shifts show how the impact from the shutdown, the result of an impasse between President Donald Trump and lawmakers over funding for a barrier along the southern U.S. border, are impacting aviation. The shutdown has stalled the required federal approvals for new jets and routes, as well as certifications for new mechanics and other industry employees.

The agency acknowledged that unscheduled absences of the 51,000 TSA officers have been on the rise, but said “security standards remain uncompromised at our nation’s airports.” About 5.6 percent of officers called out sick on Saturday, up from 3.3 percent a year ago, spokesman Michael Bilello said.

The TSA considers a normal wait time on security line 30 minutes or less. At Miami International Airport, McCarren International Airport (which serves Las Vegas) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, maximum wait times were 29 minutes, Bilello said. Others around the country were lower, and the impact to air travelers has so far been minimal.

“We usually see 30-40 TSA call-outs per day, but that has doubled in the last few days,” Greg Chin, spokesman for Miami International Airport, told CNBC in an email. He said that the airport has about 700 TSA workers scheduled to work daily.

Starting Saturday, flights scheduled to fly from Terminals G after 1 p.m. through the same time on Sunday and Monday, will be relocated to Terminals F or H. The change is a “precautionary measure and to better utilize the decreased staffing,” Chin said.

United Airlines will use other gates for flights that were scheduled to depart from Terminal G, and is telling travelers to arrive at the airport early and to check for changes, a spokeswoman said.

TSA Administrator David Pekoske late Friday said the screeners would receive $500 and be paid for Dec. 22, the day the shutdown began.

Google reportedly plans to significantly expand its New York City presence

Tech giant Google is planning to expand its office space in New York City, potentially allowing the company to significantly increase staffing in the city, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

People familiar with the matter told the Journal that Google is nearing a deal to buy or lease a planned 1.3 million-square-foot office building at St. John’s Terminal in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood. When completed, that building would give the Alphabet unit space for more than 8,500 staff.

Google did not immediately respond to CNBC’s emailed request for comment.

The WSJ said that Google declined to comment on any talks about the St. John’s Terminal property.

Additionally, Google is also planning to expand its existing property at Chelsea Market by about 300,000 square feet, the Journal reported. That, along with its announced plans for 250,000 square feet of office space at Pier 57, could provide sufficient office space for more than 3,500 additional workers, the newspaper said.

The tech giant bought the Chelsea Market property earlier this year for about $2.4 billion.

Norwegian warship at risk of sinking after collision with oil tanker

A Norwegian warship was heavily damaged in a collision with a Maltese oil tanker in the North Sea off the coast of Norway.

According to Norwegian media reports Thursday, the frigate is in danger of sinking after sustaining heavy damage. The oil tanker is reportedly undamaged.

Several reports confirmed that all 137 crew on the navy ship were evacuated but seven have been treated for minor injuries.

“The armed forces is now reviewing all the means available in the region to assist the KNM Helge Ingstad (the damaged warship),” Lieutenant Colonel Ivar Moen told AFP.

According to the website Marine Traffic, the 62,000-ton oil tanker Sola is continuing its route from Norway to a terminal in northeast England.

However, one separate media report said that despite suffering only superficial damage, the tanker is now at a standstill and waiting to be towed back into a Norwegian port.

Reuters reported that the Equinor Sture oil shipment terminal, from where the oil tanker left, has been closed as a precautionary measure.

Cruise lines build up capacity despite global headwinds

Cruise lines build up capacity despite global headwinds

Seventeen cruise ships are expected to hit the market next year, with demand for cruises expected to rise.

To increase the capacity at ports, cruise lines have started to build out terminals. One of those, Royal Caribbean, invested $250 million in the launch of Terminal A at Port Miami, which went live on Sunday. Royal Caribbean plans to bring new ships to Terminal A, and over time will lease it out to other cruise lines in the industry.

The ship operator says with the new terminal, its bookings are expected to rise from 750,000, to 1.8 million over the course of the next year.

Meanwhile, Norwegian Cruises has also broken ground on a terminal at Port Miami, which is expected to be fully operational by February 2020.

Cruise analysts say that strong domestic demand is the underlying driver behind the forecast growth in the cruise industry. But a critical component over time will getting international passengers on board, they add. So far in 2018, all of the major cruise line stocks are trading down between 9 percent and 11 percent.

Royal Caribbean’s CEO Richard Fain is bullish on growing cruise bookings, but conceded that a number of challenges exist — including geopolitical and trade tensions.

“I’m a free trade advocate and anything that creates tensions about free trade…I view economically as a bad thing. But our business in China continues to do well,” Fain told CNBC at the launch of Terminal A.

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez recognized that trade tensions with major U.S. trading partners are a concern, but is hopeful that a deal will work out.

“We need to make investments to be ready,” said Gimenez to CNBC.

The new cruise terminal build-out comes as investors debate the future of the economy, and the impact of higher interest rates on consumers.

Patrick Scholes, managing director at Suntrust Robinson Humphrey who covers travel and cruise stocks, told CNBC that travel is an economically sensitive sector. Should an economic downturn does occur, then consumers will be less willing to spend their money on travel, and that includes cruises.

“A strong economy gives consumers the confidence to book travel in advance,” said Scholes.

The analyst is watching to see if cruise operators across the industry raise prices next year, as input costs related to fuel continue to rise. The risk is that over time, consumers may get priced out if ticket fares go up substantially.

Yet at this moment, Scholes said the industry is far away from that being a concern.

Shell revives long-delayed plan to build Canada's first LNG export terminal

Royal Dutch Shell is pushing forward a long-delayed liquefied natural gas export project in British Columbia, making it the first Canadian LNG terminal to get the financial green light.

Shell’s decision on Tuesday to move forward the $14 billion LNG Canada project — the largest of its kind in years — signals confidence that global demand will rise quickly enough to sop up growing supplies of LNG. It also opens a new competitive front for the U.S. terminal developers lining up to take advantage of booming demand for natural gas super-chilled to liquid form, particularly in Asia.

The company deferred approving LNG Canada in 2016 during a period of weak LNG prices. Shell is now moving forward as prices strengthen and the Anglo-Dutch energy giant continues to stake its future on the growing role of natural gas in the world’s energy mix.

“We believe LNG Canada is the right project, in the right place, at the right time,” Shell CEO Ben van Beurden said in a statement.

“Global LNG demand is expected to double by 2035 compared with today, with much of this growth coming from Asia where gas displaces coal.”

Police chase shuts down runway at French airport

France’s Lyon airport halted flights on Monday when a driver being chased by police smashed his car through a terminal building and onto a runway.

More than a dozen police cars and a helicopter pursued the fugitive over a distance up the wrong side of a motorway before he broke through security barriers at the Lyon-Saint-Exupery international airport.

“Pursued by police, he smashed through Terminal 1 before reaching the runway area,” the government prefect’s office said in a statement.

The car then hurtled across the runway zone before coming to a halt on rough terrain beside the tarmac. The intruder sought to flee on foot but was tackled by officers and arrested.

The motive of the driver, whose identity has not yet been made public, was not clear, the source said.

Flights were grounded until further notice, the airport tweeted.
