The amount of onshore wind power connected to the Northern Ireland grid has breached the 1 gigawatt (GW) mark for the first time, meaning almost a quarter of the region's electricity comes the renewable energy source. Fresh data from NI Electricity Network has revealed the surge in connections just weeks after official figures showed that onshore wind rose to make up over 22pc of Northern Ireland’s electricity in the 12 months to the end of March.
Petrofac will be hoping to convince investors that it is business as usual for the troubled oilfield services group in its trading update on Tuesday. The FTSE 250 group has been dragged into the Unaoil corruption scandal which has engulfed the global oil industry and could face a lengthy probe by the Serious Fraud Office which analysts fear may scupper its chances of picking up new work.
The North Sea’s largest new oil project in a decade has begun oil flows in a major milestone for the embattled oil basin in the wake of a brutal industry downturn. Oil producer Enquest said the two out of three drilling centres began producing oil for the first time last Friday. The £4bn Kraken field was the largest industrial investment in the UK in 2013 and could produce as much as 50,000 barrels of oil a day at its peak.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
