Petrol Expands Oil and Gas Leased Acreage Position in Petrol-Neodesha

Petrol Acquires an Additional 400 Gross Acres and Commits to Drilling Three Wells in 2005

LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) July 29, 2021 -- Petrol Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTCBB: POIG) announced today the expansion of its leased acreage position within its Petrol-Neodesha property by 400 gross acres.

Petrol acquired the additional acreage adjacent to its producing property and has committed to drill three wells this year on the newly acquired leases. This lease acquisition follows the recent successful completion of Petrol's Phase I field enhancement program.

"Based on the recent Petrol-Neodesha successes we experienced in our Phase I enhancement program, including our 5 new Coal Bed Methane (CBM) wells, we proceeded to implement our acquisition plan designed to expand our oil and gas lease holdings in the area," said Paul Branagan, Petrol's Chief Executive Officer. "We acquired mineral leases covering 400 acres directly adjacent to our existing producing property. We are committed to drilling 3 wells within this new leased area in 2005."

According to a December 31, 2021 reserve report, Petrol has gross proved reserves amounting to approximately 9.9 Billion cubic feet (BCF) within its Petrol-Neodesha properties. Petrol-Neodesha, located in the Thayer field, is a very active CBM gas producing area and lies within Wilson and Neosho counties, Kansas. Petrol currently produces from 77 producing wells in Petrol-Neodesha which was acquired in November, 2004. Petrol plans to expand low-risk drilling activities throughout this year and next to increase production in the area. Petrol-Neodesha has room for an additional 95-100 drillable locations.

CHina Companies Expanding in South East Asia

Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will sign a memorandum of understanding with the company, also known as Sinopec, when he visits China this week, Yusgiantoro told reporters yesterday in Jakarta.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (PRWEB) July 29, 2021 -- China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec), Asia's largest oil processor, plans to invest in Indonesia's proposed 10th oil refinery, Indonesia's Energy Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said.

Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will sign a memorandum of understanding with the company, also known as Sinopec, when he visits China this week, Yusgiantoro told reporters yesterday in Jakarta.

The refinery in Tuban in east Java will have the capacity to process as much as 200,000 barrels of oil a day, Widya Purnama, president director of state oil company PT Pertamina, said today in Jakarta. The refinery will process crude oil pumped from fields operated by Exxon Mobil Corp. and Santos Ltd., Yudhoyono said on July 11.

Indonesia's proposed refinery plan follows the resolution of a four-year dispute between Exxon Mobil Corp. and the government over sharing revenue from Cepu, the Southeast Asian nation's largest untapped oil field. Cepu is estimated to contain 500 million barrels of oil and would add about 18 percent to Indonesia's output at a time when global crude prices have risen to records.

Sinopec is increasing exploration and buying overseas assets to cut the nation's reliance on fuel imports. China, the largest energy user after the U.S., may use 9.7 percent more crude oil, chemicals and fuel this year, China Petroleum & Chemical Corp., a unit of Sinopec, said in April.

Indonesia has failed to proceed with previous plans to build another refinery. In 2003, PT Pertamina said it was in talks with Mitsui & Co. and Mitsubishi Corp. to build a $1.6 billion refinery in Tuban. Last year, Pertamina invited Malaysia's Petroliam Nasional Bhd., or Petronas, to invest in the project.

Indonesia, the second-smallest member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries by production, imports about one- fifth of its oil products each year because its 1.08 million barrels a day of refining capacity isn't enough to meet domestic demand.

The country burns about 1.2 million barrels of oil products a day. Qatar has the lowest production among OPEC's 11 members.

Shayne Heffernan in will be representing Suncrest Energy at the meetings in Jakarta, Suncrest Energy and Shayne Heffernan will be the first Foriegn Oil company to enter Indonesias troubled areas for sometime and Mr Heffernan is confident of great results.

Fear of Unionization A Faded Issue for HR Managers, HR.BLR.com Poll Finds

As unions split and reorganize to attempt to gather renewed strength, two-thirds of human resource managers rate their concern about unionization as “low” or “non-existent,” according to the latest online poll at HR.BLR.com.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) July 28, 2021 –- Not so long ago, human resource managers trembled at the thought of union organizers in their midst. Now, two-thirds rate their concern as “low” or “non-existent,” according to the latest online poll at HR.BLR.com, a website for HR managers.

The poll asked, “What's the level of concern about union organizing at your company?”

The responses broke down this way:
Non-existent - 43%
Low - 25%
Moderate - 14%
We're already organized - 10%
High - 7%

The poll, conducted July 20-26, drew 557 participants. It occurred amid heavy news coverage of the AFL-CIO’s 50th-anniversary convention and the high-profile departure of seven dissident unions from the coalition, including the Teamsters Union and the Service Employees International Union.

“It’s hard to say whether these numbers reflect the waning power of organized labor or simply preparedness on the part of today’s HR professionals,” said Kevin Flood, BLR editor. “One legacy of the labor movement is the array of laws we have now to protect workers, like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the state workers’ compensation laws, and the various equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws. An HR manager must understand them and comply with them, even if their employees aren’t organized. From a compliance perspective, then, they may view the threat of unionization as a been-there-done-that situation.”

Still, any attempt to unionize a workplace brings into play a law that HR managers must be especially careful to follow: the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). That’s why HR.BLR.com offers a free download of the Unions page in its compliance library. This PDF explains how an employer must comply with the NLRA and other laws in dealing with everything from union solicitation and “salting” to union elections and grievances.

Fueling the Dragon: China's Race into the Oil Market

With 1.2 billion people, the People's Republic of China is the world's most populous country and third largest oil consumer, behind the U.S. and Japan. In recent years, China has been undergoing a process of industrialization and is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

(PRWEB) July 27, 2021 -- With 1.2 billion people, the People's Republic of China is the world's most populous country and third largest oil consumer, behind the U.S. and Japan, Shayne Heffernan was quoted as saying during a recent Interveiw. In recent years, China has been undergoing a process of industrialization and is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

With real gross domestic product growing at a rate of 7% a year, China requires increasing amounts of oil to sustain its economic development. Its oil consumption grows by 7.5% per year, seven times faster than the U.S.' Growth in Chinese oil consumption has accelerated mainly because of a large-scale transition away from bicycles and mass transit toward private automobiles, more affordable since China's admission to the World Trade Organization.

Consequently, by year 2010 China is expected to have 90 times more cars than in 1990. With automobile numbers growing at 19% a year, projections show that China could surpass the total number of cars in the U.S. by 2030.

Chinese gasoline prices now ranked amongst the lowest in the world for oil-importing countries, and are a third of retail prices in Europe and Japan, where steep taxes are imposed to discourage gasoline use.

Though during the 1970s and 80s China was a net oil exporter, it became a net oil importer in 1993 and is growingly dependent on foreign oil. China currently imports 32% of its oil and is expected to double its need for imported oil between now and 2010 and become the second largest world oil consumer. A report by the International Energy Agency predicted that by 2030, Chinese oil imports will equal imports by the U.S. today.

Shayne Heffernan a leading authority on China has nominated the Countries Oil Industry to grow 5 fold in the next 10 years.

Research and Markets: BETTA and Energy Retail in Scotland's I&C; Market

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20988) has announced the addition of Extended Expert View: BETTA and Energy Retail in Scotland's I&C; Market to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 20, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20988) has announced the addition of Extended Expert View: BETTA and Energy Retail in Scotland's I&C; Market to their offering.


When NETA was introduced into England and Wales, Scotland was left with an arrangement little changed from the 1990s. As there was no traded wholesale market, energy producers were required to sell their output to ScottishPower and Scottish and Southern Energy at a price set by the regulator. Thus the two Scottish based utilities controlled almost the entire generation output of Scotland.

This report provides an explanation of the background to BETTA and its key features. It gives an evaluation of contradictory arguments about the affect that BETTA will have on energy retail in Scotland and includes a prediction of the wins and losses for each major utility in the I&C; market.

The relative sizes of transmission and distribution charges may go some way to explaining the lack of residential switching in Scotland, but this is in no way conclusive.

It is expected that the market share in Scotland's I&C; sector will become more like the one in England and Wales. If the Scottish I&C; sector becomes like England and Wales ScottishPower will lose market share dramatically, principally to EDF Energy, British Energy and RWE npower.

This report can give you an understanding of what BETTA means to the retail department. It will help you gauge how much market share the Scottish incumbents are likely to lose.

BioOil-Hydrocarbon Emulsion Successfully Tested Test Confirms BioOil and Diesel Fuel Mix is Possible

Vancouver (PRWEB) July 20, 2021 -- DynaMotive Energy Systems Corporation (OTCBB: DYMTF) is pleased to announce that Ivey International Inc, a British Columbia environmental solutions company working with DynaMotive, has successfully emulsified BioOil with hydrocarbon diesel.

The goal of the emulsification testing is to allow for co-burning of a BioOil/diesel mix in stationary engines without requiring significant modifications to them. If successfully developed, a product which permits BioOil to supplement diesel fuel will open a major market for both DynaMotive and Ivey. A test program to develop emulsification of BioOil with fuel oil and other heavy hydrocarbons will follow.

BioOil and diesel are generally not miscible; mixing them requires an emulsifying agent to achieve a stable mixture. Ivey's patented Ivey-sol Surfactant formulations were used to achieve the blending of 20% BioOil with 80% commercial diesel fuel. Preliminary findings met the required objectives, with successful blending stability exceeding 60 minutes. Additional testing is planned to further extend the stability of the blend. Photographs of the emulsion are available at DynaMotive's website (www.dynamotive.com).

BioOil emulsions are a cornerstone of DynaMotives market penetration strategy, as they will permit BioOil to be added as a cost-effective green component to fossil fuels which are currently used in power stations. The goal of the emulsification program is to produce low cost and stable emulsions compatible with existing stationary diesel engine technology. As energy prices reach record levels and environmental concerns take centre stage, BioOil presents a strong potential as a partial fuel alternative.

DynaMotive and Ivey International acknowledge Mr. Anton Kuipers, Director of Business Development, Leading Edge British Columbia, for bringing the two Companies together on this important initiative.

Ivey International Inc. is an innovative environmental remediation company located near Vancouver, BC, Canada. The company prides itself in the development of several patented environmental products that are commonly used for the rapid and cost effective remediation of air, soil and groundwater contamination. One of the companys specializations is in the field of production of emulsions. For more information on Ivey International Inc. please visit www.iveyinternational.com or call 1-800-246-2744.

DynaMotive is an energy systems company that is focused in the development of innovative energy solutions based on its patented pyrolysis system. Through the application of its technology and know how, the Company intends to tap into abundant organic resources that are generally discarded by the agricultural and forest industries at a cost and convert them into a renewable and environmentally friendly fuel. Examples include forestry residues, wood bark agricultural residues such as sugar cane bagasse. The Company has successfully converted each of these residues into BioOil and char making them a renewable and environmentally friendly oil and char reserve that is available world-wide.

Forward Looking Statement
Statements in this news release concerning the company's business outlook or future economic performance; anticipated profitability, revenues, expenses, or other financial items; and statements concerning assumptions made or expectations as to any future events, conditions, performance or other matters, are forward-looking statements as that term is defined under the Federal Securities Laws. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those stored in such statements. Such risks, uncertainties and factors include, but are not limited to, future capital needs, changes and delays in product development plans and schedules, customer acceptance of new products, changes in pricing or other actions by competitors, patents owned by the Company and its competitors, and general economic conditions, as well as other risks detailed in the Companys filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Energy Hedge Fund Center (www.energyhedgefunds.com) reports that it is now tracking more than 400 energy and environmental hedge funds and more than 360 managers in its directory of energy hedge funds. Fund of Funds interest in the energy and natural resources areas continues to grow with new funds of funds in formation as investors seek exposure to the ‘hot’ energy industry.

New York; Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2021 -- The Energy Hedge Fund Center (www.energyhedgefunds.com) reports that it is now tracking more than 400 energy and environmental hedge funds and more than 360 managers in its directory of energy hedge funds. Fund of Funds interest in the energy and natural resources areas continues to grow with new funds of funds in formation as investors seek exposure to the ‘hot’ energy industry.

“The growth in hedge funds targeting various strategies in the energy and environmental space is not a surprise given the current fundamentals in the energy industry and we expect this growth to continue,” said Dr. Gary M. Vasey, Co-Principal of the Energy Hedge Fund Center. “Given the lack of stellar returns in more ‘traditional’ areas of hedge fund investment, energy is now seen by funds and investors alike as a real opportunity to generate alpha.”

“Through our continued research into the sector as well as advising hedge funds, we are now seeing more investment interest of fund of funds particularly in Europe,” said Peter C. Fusaro, Co-Principal of the Energy Hedge Fund Center.

Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Calls West Africa A Strategic but Underutilized Partner in Quest for U.S. Energy Security

U.S. policy in West Africa should connect energy security to other important governance, infrastructure development, and poverty reduction goals

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 14, 2021 -- As gas prices continue to skyrocket, the debate over how to address America’s energy crisis has intensified among policymakers, analysts, and other key opinion leaders. Simultaneously, the U.S. faces increased international pressure to provide more aid, fair trade, and debt relief assistance to sub-Saharan African countries.

A new study by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) titled, “Breaking the Oil Syndrome: Responsible Hydrocarbon Development in West Africa,” argues that the U.S. must link these seemingly disparate concerns by forming a strategic alliance with West African hydrocarbon states that can help secure U.S. energy needs while advancing human and infrastructure development goals in West Africa.

“The fact of the matter is that West Africa is vital to the energy security of the United States,” said Dr. Don Tharpe, President and CEO of CBCF. “The region is poised to increase the world supply of oil but it has been largely overlooked as a key U.S. partner in this regard.”

“Changing global geopolitical dynamics have once again increased U.S. interest in Africa and its natural resources. Yet, it will not be enough to conduct business as usual in West Africa,” said Dr. Maya Rockeymoore, former CBCF Vice President of Research and Programs. “The U.S. must embark upon a mutually beneficial alliance that increases U.S. energy security while promoting sustainable development in African oil-producing countries.”

The paper highlights that a mutually beneficial dynamic engagement framework will be especially important as the demand and competition for scarce oil resources increases in countries like China and India.

According to Paul Michael Wihbey, the lead author of the study and President of Global Water and Energy Strategy Team, “This report makes recommendations that could have significant implications for U.S. energy security over the short and long terms,” Wihbey says. “The U.S. has a very important opportunity at this critical juncture in world history. The country could benefit tremendously if it recognizes that good governance, infrastructure, and human development goals are the key to the security and sustainability of oil-exports from West African hydrocarbon states.”

The CBCF maintains that investment in alternative, non-carbon energy sources represents the greatest possibility for reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil sources. Yet the Foundation recognizes that it will take time to develop mass technologies that utilize alternative energy sources across the various carbon-dependent industries. While it is important to support the development and application of non-carbon energy sources, therefore, it remains vitally important to diversify how and where the U.S. imports its oil in the meantime.

The paper will be released to the public on Tuesday, July 19, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. in the Members Room of the Library of Congress (Jefferson Building). The forum will be hosted by Congressman William J. Jefferson, Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and will feature Members of Congress, subject matter experts, key Bush Administration officials, private sector participants, and members of the African Diplomatic Corps.

The CBCF, established in 1976, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy, research and educational institute focused on leadership education, public health, economic development, and African globalism.

Research and Markets: A Rising Gas Wholesale Market in the UK Forced Short Utilities to make Losses in Gas

Dublin : (PRWEB) July 14, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20618) has announced the addition of UK Utilities Residential Margins: Unbundling Supplier Maragins in 2004 to their offering

There are a wide range of contributions to utility financial performance - the type and location of customers as well as the mix of meters and tariffs. The impact of these factors on the overall performance of each residential supplier are detailed in this report to allow both analysis of past financial performance and forecasts of likely future behaviour under different market conditions.

This report provides data on the costs of 6 UK utilities - Centrica, Powergen, SSE, ScottishPower, npower and EDF Energy. In includes a financial analysis of the origins of their profitability - cost-to-serve, network charges, S&M; spend, renewable compliance as well as wholesale costs. Knowledge about the portfolio of fuels and accounts held by suppliers and how this translated into return is provided together with the history of price rises and its relationship to changes in account numbers held by suppliers.

Tier 1 customers were the most profitable for suppliers, regardless of fuel, giving suppliers who had high proportions of them the greatest profitability. The suppliers that have stayed with their ex-monopoly fuel to the greatest extent achieved the greatest profitability. A rising gas wholesale market forced short utilities to make losses in gas to protect valuable Tier 1 electricity accounts

With this report you can identify which suppliers make a margin and where they make it. It will help you to plan future marketing drives and scope their likely affect on profitability and understand the strengths and weaknesses of competitor portfolios and strategy.

Research and Markets: Collective Strength of the GECF Leading to Concerns by Gas Importers That It has Potential to Evolve Into a Gas Version of OPEC

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20675) has announced the addition of Gas Exporting Countries Forum - An Overview to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 14, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20675) has announced the addition of Gas Exporting Countries Forum - An Overview to their offering.


The Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) is an informally structured group of some of the worlds leading gas producers aimed at representing and promoting their mutual interests. Collectively the GECF controls 73% of the world's gas reserves and 41% of production. This collective strength has lead to concerns by gas importers that the GECF has the potential to evolve into a gas version of OPEC.

This report includes an analysis of the key issues arising form each of the GECFs five annual ministerial meetings. The collective strength and market control of the GECF is analysed in the context of its changing membership structure. The differing and divergent agendas and motivations of individual GECF members are highlighted

Membership has fluctuated since the GECFs formation in 2001 and currently consists of Algeria, Bolivia, Brunei, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Libya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway (as an observer), Oman, Qatar, Russia, Trinidad & Tobago, the UAE and Venezuela. Together these countries account for 73% of global gas reserves and 41% of production.

Despite being united by a common role as gas producers, the GECF members have very different agendas. So far these differences have presented little problem other than occasionally diverging rhetoric, though potential exists for more significant and divisive differences of opinion if the GECF evolves into a more structured organisation.

With this report you can gain an insight into the key issues arising from each GECF meeting. The report analyzes the potential for the GECF to cartelise the global gas market and provides an overview of the differing motivations and agendas of the GECF members.

General Electric (GE) Joins Pew Center On Global Climate Change, Next step in Company-wide Focus on Addressing Global Warming

General Electric (GE) sets target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 2012, joins Pew Center's Business Environmental Leadership Council.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) July 13, 2021 -- The Pew Center on Global Climate Change announced today that General Electric Company (GE) has joined the Pew Center’s Business Environmental Leadership Council (BELC) and their efforts to address global warming.


GE, one of the world’s largest companies, has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions one percent by 2012 and the intensity of its GHG emissions 30 percent by 2008 (both compared to 2004).

Based on the company’s projected growth, GE’s GHG emissions would have risen 40 percent by 2012 without further action. In addition, GE is committed to doubling its investment in environmental technologies to $1.5 billion by 2010.

These efforts to reduce emissions are part of GE’s ‘Ecomagination’ initiative to aggressively bring to market new technologies that will help customers meet pressing environmental challenges.

Eileen Claussen, President of the Pew Center welcomed GE enthusiastically, “When a company like GE stands up and says that climate change is a serious issue that demands immediate action, people tend to listen. As the newest member of our business environmental leadership council, we are pleased to have them at the table as we work to craft acceptable policy here in the United States and abroad.”

“Ecomagination is GE’s commitment to address challenges such as the need for cleaner, more efficient sources of energy and reduced emissions,” said Jeffrey Immelt, GE chairman and CEO. “It is time for the private sector to assume its rightful place as a major catalyst for environmental change. We believe that the growing market for environmental technology can get us where we need to be.

“But industry cannot get there alone,” Immelt continued. “We need to work in concert with the government and important groups like the Pew Center to promote and reward leadership. We are glad to join Pew’s effort to work toward these goals – all keys for our shared future.”

Members of the Pew Center’s Business Council agree that enough is known about the science of global climate change to warrant action, and they pledge to take steps to reduce or offset their own greenhouse gas emissions. Members work together to formulate reasonable public policy, both in the United States and internationally. The Pew Center’s council now has forty members, most of them Fortune 500 companies with operations around the world.

GE is among the leaders in energy-efficient power generation technologies, renewable energy technologies, water purification, and energy-efficient consumer appliance and lighting products. Also, GE’s aircraft engines and locomotives are among the most efficient and cleanest in the world. GE serves customers in more than 100 countries and employs more than 300,000 people worldwide.

The Business Environmental Leadership Council was established by the Pew Center in 1998. The BELC is comprised of mainly Fortune 500 companies representing a diverse group of industries including energy, automobiles, manufacturing, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, metals, mining, paper and forest products, consumer goods and appliances, telecommunications, and high technology. Individually and collectively, these companies are demonstrating that it is possible to take action to address climate change while maintaining competitive excellence, growth, and profitability. The companies together generate over $1.5 trillion in revenue and employ more than 2.5 million people.

The other members of the BELC are: ABB; Air Products and Chemicals; Alcoa; American Electric Power; Baxter International; Boeing; BP; California Portland Cement Co.; CH2M HILL; Cinergy Corp.; Cummins Inc.; Deutsche Telekom; DTE Energy; DuPont; Entergy; Exelon, Georgia-Pacific; Hewlett-Packard Company; Holcim; IBM; Intel; Interface Inc.; John Hancock Financial Services; Lockheed Martin; Maytag; Novartis; Ontario Power Generation; PG&E; Corporation; Rio Tinto; Rohm and Haas; Royal Dutch/Shell; SC Johnson; Sunoco; Toyota; TransAlta; United Technologies; Weyerhaeuser; Whirlpool; and Wisconsin Energy Corporation.

Nuclear Terrorism Threat Underscored in New Novel

Al-Qaeda's determination to inflict mass casualties on the United States through nuclear terrorism is dramatized in a new novel, "King of Bombs." Though a work of fiction, King of Bombs presents a chilling scenario that experts warn may only be a matter of time before occuring. Osama bin Laden is already on record as declaring his intention to acquire a nuclear bomb.

(PRWEB) July 13, 2021 -- Al-Qaeda obtains the design for the world’s most powerful nuclear bomb. With the clandestine assistance of Iran and North Korea, and from a Pakistani nuclear physicist who runs the world’s major black market in illicit nuclear weapons technology, Al-Qaeda succeeds in building the device, as powerful as ten thousand Hiroshima atomic bombs. Fiction, or a premonition of things to come? Sheldon Filger’s new novel, "King of Bombs," raises disturbing questions on the imminence of nuclear terrorism in the United States.

Al-Qaeda has already spoken of its intent to acquire and use nuclear weapons. Recently, a Saudi cleric close to Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden, Sheikh Nasir bin Hamid al-Fahd, issued an Islamic religious ruling, known as a “fatwa,” in which he said, referring to Americans, that it was permissible, “If a bomb was dropped on them that would annihilate ten million and burn their lands.” In a recent broadcast of NBC's "Meet the Press" devoted entirely to the issue of nuclear terrorism, all the guests, including members of the 9/11 Commission, told host Tim Russert that they believe that an act of nuclear terrorism occuring in the United States was likely within their lifetimes, barring major success in anti-proliferation activity ( visit www.kingofbombs.com for additional quotes pertaining to Al-Qaeda and nuclear terrorism).

The author, Sheldon Filger, resided in New York City on September 11, 2001, and his experiences during the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center inspired him to write "King of Bombs." Numerous terrorist attacks by Al-Qaeda and its affiliates since September 11, 2001, including the recent bombings in London, provided further stimulus for the author to explore, through his novel, the possibilities of nuclear terrorism being initiated by the Islamist terror network. His novel, "King of Bombs," presents a terrifying scenario, involving the possibilities of a nexus between rogue states, black market nuclear materials and Al-Qaeda, leaving open the potential for a calamity of nightmarish proportions. Mr.Filger currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada, and can be contacted for interviews by phone at 204-786-5845 (cellular 204-799-3605)and by E-mail through his website, www.kingofbombs.com.

LNG Causes Pipeline Leaks - Warning by LngDanger.com

Tim Riley and Hayden Riley, hosts of http://LngDanger.com, and producers of the LNG documentary film: The Risks and Danger of LNG, warn that a new report reveals - LNG causes pipe couplings to shrink and leak.

(PRWEB) July 13, 2021 -- The Washington Post reported on July 7, 2005, “A company-sponsored study, launched after a District Heights house exploded in late March, found that subtle molecular differences in the imported liquefied natural gas the utility began using in August 2003 were drying the rubber seals of aging metal couplings that link sections of pipe.” Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson said, “he was ‘very alarmed’ that the gas industry knew since 1992 that changes in gas composition could cause couplings to leak.”

“We too, are very concerned that the energy industry knew of this problem, and yet the siting of new and expanded Liquefied Natural Gas importation facilities is moving at a fast-tracked pace,” said Hayden Riley.

“It is time to put the brakes on, and slow down the LNG application process - nationwide - until this troubling report and possible solution is fully examined and fully understood. We don’t want our communities being exposed to dangers of pipeline leaks and explosions from regasified LNG,” said Tim Riley.

The Washington Post further stated, “The frequency of leaks began to soar in late 2003, soon after the company started supplying Prince George's with imported gas, mainly from Trinidad, brought in by tanker through Dominion's Cove Point liquefied natural gas terminal in Calvert County.”

“We are very concerned that the leaks started within six months of the regasified LNG passing through the pipeline system. This shocking revelation proves that LNG’s allegedly innovated and modern technology has many flaws. What also upsets us is that apparently the industry knew about this danger, and nevertheless has failed to disclose this vital information during the nationwide LNG application siting process,” said Hayden Riley.

On July 9, 2005, The Washington Post reported, “The company attributes the leaks to the composition of imported gas, which it has said causes the rubber seals in underground pipe couplings to shrink. Officials hope that by mixing the gas with hexane and pentane -- heavy hydrocarbons lost during the liquefaction process -- or by blending it with domestic supplies, the additives will absorb into the seals, swelling and sealing the couplings.”

Hayden Riley added, “Naturally, the LNG company claims they complied with ‘current standards’ and therefore there is nothing wrong with the gas composition; and further claims there has to be something wrong with the gas company’s pipes. The gas company also claims they complied with ‘current standards.’ So we as bystanders, who face all the risk of their mistakes are relegated to watch their obnoxious finger-pointing game, and suffer injury on top of insult for their lack of responsibility. Clearly, proper standards, when it comes to regasified LNG are not known or high enough.”

“My cell-phone complies with FCC standards, and yet it drops calls all the time. I’m sure the LNG company and the gas company were both complying with ‘current standards.’ Unfortunately, the learning curve requires tragic accidents occur before we recognize when ‘current standards’ are outdated,” said Tim Riley. “California is now considering four LNG importation proposals. California’s pipeline ‘standards’ are as high and adequate as their wishful thinking permits, nevertheless their standard, at this point is purely speculative at best since California has no experience whatsoever in transmitting regasified LNG through a system which faces constant earthquake and seismic activity. LNG is too dangerous for Monday quarterbacking,” Riley added.

According to the Baltimore Sun on July 8, 2005, “‘The breakdown of seals in the couplings of gas pipelines led to about 1,400 gas leaks during the past two years, and has required the company to launch a $144 million project to replace lines and equipment,’ said Tim Sargeant, spokesman for the utility.”

"‘We are experiencing a significant increase in leaks in a 100-square-mile area of Prince George's County,’ Sargeant said. ‘We have not ruled out the possibility of a rate increase in the future,’ to pay for the extensive repairs, he said.”

Hayden Riley suggested that, “Those currently willing to risk residential neighborhoods exploding from regasified LNG leaks in hopes that they might save a few bucks a month on cheaper utility gas prices, now have to take a second look. The alleged price benefits of importing LNG apparently have costly hidden dangers as well.”

Tim Riley concluded, “Higher utility rates for replacement of couplings, pipe repairs and upgrading pipelines damaged by or to accommodate regasified LNG, will inevitably be passed on to consumers who will be forced to pay higher utility costs. Obviously this factor alone makes it clear that LNG will not bring down our utility costs, and to think otherwise is very naïve.”

Take a Look at the Oil Crisis Ahead With a New Peak Oil Documentary DVD Available in UK & Europe

Peak Oil: Imposed by Nature is a new documentary that will be available from Friday 15th July throughout the UK and Europe via the website www.PowerSwitch.org.uk. Produced by Amund Prestegard and recommended by Dr Colin Campbell, it is an excellent introduction to the causes and consequences of the terminal decline of global oil production as we reach Hubbert's Peak, expected in 2007.

(PRWEB) July 13, 2021 -- New Peak Oil documentary DVD available in UK & Europe.


Peak Oil: Imposed by Nature is a new documentary that will be available from Friday 15th July throughout the UK and Europe via the website www.PowerSwitch.org.uk. Produced by Amund Prestegard and recommended by Dr Colin Campbell, it is an excellent introduction to the causes and consequences of the terminal decline of global oil production as we reach Hubbert's Peak, expected in 2007.

In the documentary, Dr Colin Campbell takes us to Stavanger in Norway, where he has worked the last 10 years of his professional career. He explains the different aspects of discovery and production, the increase and decline, and the fact that this will happen very soon. Dr Campbell serves as our ‘guide’ throughout the documentary, although he is just one of the many informed and informative analysts that feature.

Richard Webb is a financial risk analyst with broad experience from some of the world's largest investment banks. He expresses his opinion about signs that the market is reaching an extremity, and that this endorses what Colin Campbell and the ASPO are saying: we are near the peak. Webb underlines the importance of understanding that the dramatic event is not when we will run out of oil, but rather what will happen when there is less tomorrow than there is today.

Norwegian petroleum geologist Olve Torvanger has 30 years of worldwide experience in seismic surveys, searching for oil. He points to the seriousness of a situation in which our tools become ever more sophisticated, but we are finding less and less.

Matthew Simmons is Chairman and CEO of Simmons & Co. International, one of the world’s largest energy-investment banking firms. He expresses a deep concern for the urgent need to take measures to prevent the decline that shall destroy our society. He refers to the word "crisis" (NOTE: see brackets after ‘guide’ above) as “A temporary problem that has been left unattended so long that it has become permanent.”

Aage Figenschou, Norwegian board member of Simmons & Co, expresses worry regarding the downgrading of reserves by oil companies. He believes that we are near the peak, but underlines that it will not make people run to fill up their cars. What we will see, he says, is a constant pressure towards ever-higher prices, a rather negative outcome.

Chris Skrebowski, Editor of Petroleum Review in London, argues the case for a much stronger involvement from Government that could go as far as deciding who can - and who can not – have (NOTE: what are you saying here? Sentence doesn’t make sense. Do you mean – who can and can not have access to oil?). The Government, he claims, will find themselves monitoring a war-like situation.

Investigative reporter, Michael C Ruppert, expresses his views on Dr Campbell being approached by US intelligence in his own village in Western Ireland. Ruppert claims that what the CIA most of all wants to know is "how close is the ASPO to penetrating the public consciousness with the issues of PEAK OIL and how close is the public to acknowledging what it's going to mean.” According to Ruppert, the so-called "war on terrorism" (NOTE: once again, is this a direct quote from the doc? If not, it needs single inverted commas) is nothing but a war to control the last remaining oil reserves on the planet.

US president George W. Bush frets over the fact that the US now imports over half of their crude oil, and that very often they import that from countries that "don't particularly like us" and "that it could jeopardize the national security to be dependent on sources of energy from countries that don't care for America - what we stand for, what we love."

The Producer/Director/Cameraman is Norwegian Amund Prestegard, 52, experienced in all facets of filmmaking since 1972. Prestegard has run his own production company, Tropos Dokumentar, since 1995. Peak Oil: Imposed by Nature was nominated ‘Best Professional Documentary’ at the Norwegian Documentary Film Festival 2005. The idea for this film came about when Prestegard, during research for another project, became aware of the global oil depletion situation when reading the works of Campbell, Laherrere and Simmons during Autumn 2002.

With a running time of approximately 30 minutes, this documentary quickly absorbs, and delivers a much-needed wake-up call to anyone new to the subject of peak oil. With the need for a worldwide understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions, this documentary is a very useful tool in raising awareness. Shorter than End of Suburbia but with a strong UK focus, this is a documentary that everyone should see.

ACSA Issues Interstate Traveler Company the Coveted Sir ISAAC NEWTON™ Award: the NEWTY™

American Computer Science Association announces it is awarding the Interstate Traveler Company, headed by Justin Eric Sutton, its coveted NEWTY™ Award for “Most Valuable New Technology of the 21st Century” -- the first such award conferred in the 21st Century. The award was issued in special recognition of and with the intent of promoting awareness of Interstate Traveler Company’s unique and extraordinary plan for providing a uniquely efficient, fossil fuel independent, totally non-polluting high speed transportation and energy solution. ACSA stated that it believes the “Interstate Traveler” represents the right answer to America’s Energy, Fuel, Telecommunications and Rapid Transportation needs for balance of the 21st Century.

(PRWEB) July 11, 2021 -- ACSA™: the American Computer Science Association (website: http://www.acsa.net | story: http://www.acsa.net/hshrt ) has awarded its coveted NEWTY™ (the SIR ISAAC NEWTON™ Award) to Justin Eric Sutton and the Interstate Traveler Company, LLC. The Award was conferred after six years and six months of study of new ideas, inventions and concepts. ACSA’s research advisory committee has stated it believes Interstate Traveler Company offers “The Most Valuable New Technology of the 21st Century” (website: http://www.interstatetraveler.us).

Justin Eric Sutton also shared the coveted NEWTY™ for his role in the invention of the overall ideas behind “The Interstate Traveler”. The Traveler is a proposed nationwide network of 250 MPH solar-hydrogen powered medium duty MAGLEV railway with the potential capacity when complete to provide excess hydrogen sufficient to power much if not all of America’s annual energy needs up to the end of the 21st Century.

ACSA’s chairperson Dr. Jack A. Shulman indicated:

“We have looked at the entire range of remarkable ideas that have emerged during the past five years, from Paul Allen, Lord Richard Branson and Bert Rutan’s Space Ship One to Dean Kamen’s Segway to Steve Jobs and Apple’s iPod to Windows XP from Microsoft to the Biometric Smart Card to various hybrid electric autos from Honda, Toyota and others, and to such things as the GM Hy-Wire and Ford and other manufacturers’ own Hydrogen and Electric cars, and even the N-Alkane Silver Thiokole Half-Femtosecond Semiconducting Transcapacitor. We’ve looked at IP-Television, IP-Radio, the Blue Ray DVD and even some new, as of yet unreleased computer technologies, medical advances and breakthroughs in Energy and Cellular. No matter how amazing each of these ideas and products we looked at were, no matter how valuable they are, none of them comes even remotely close to the value of the amazing accomplishments that The Interstate Traveler might achieve. It’s very unusual for us to grant the award to an as of yet not completed project. Nonetheless, to those of us who spent time evaluating the findings about Interstate Traveler after an exhaustive study, this project is the real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in terms of what impact it might have in improving the quality of life on Planet Earth. That was the key to this award.”

“Justin Sutton and the Interstate Traveler Company have created a visionary project that will quite literally change everything we do for the better. It will bring America closer together, and the world closer together. It will reduce the cost of sending packages by UPS, Fedex and the Mail. It will eventually make its way to our very doors and neighborhoods. It will make it possible for every country of the world to easily participate in the world’s economy and for everyone to be able to afford to travel to and from their job of choice, their vacation of choice, their school of choice, their home of choice, and the places we go to do business, shop and just enjoy ourselves. It will change the affordability of the highest quality of life, making it available to everyone. It will reduce the cost of energy to 1/5th or even to 1/10th of what it is today. It will bolster every economy that adopts it by reducing the cost of living, the cost of manufacturing and the cost of doing business dramatically, while widening the availability to do business and live and manufacture throughout any country’s infrastructure while eliminating the pollution from powering it all.”

“Justin’s vision also has taken on the challenge of world demand for Fossil Fuels, by providing an abundance of clean Solar Delivered Hydrogen Energy, an amazing feat that it clearly has the upper hand at, versus traditional energy sources. We could all learn a lesson from Justin Sutton: for his perseverance, for his ability to translate dreams into reality and reality into mission. To be able to travel at 250 MPH is not enough for him. To be able to carry people, freight, and automobiles along 250,000 miles or more of rails is not enough for him. To be able to do so without consuming fossil fuels is not enough for him. To do so while producing enough energy to power this country is not enough for him. To be able to export this science and technology to every nation in the world is not enough for him. To be able to do so and build it and run it safely and soundly and change the face of the world as we know it, while making it economically self supporting and sustainable, that became Justin’s goal. That is why Justin Sutton and the Interstate Traveler Company, LLC have decidedly earned and deserve the first NEWTY™ of the 21st Century. We only award a single NEWTY™ every few years. The Interstate Traveler Company won this one hands down.”

The American Computer Science Association indicated it had evaluated hundreds of new and unique technological advances in communications, travel, medicine, science, law enforcement, and many other fields of endeavor, before it decided on Justin Sutton and the Interstate Traveler Company. The persons evaluating potential candidates for the NEWTY™ spend six months evaluating data gathered over as much as six years, evaluating each prospect before tallying a group consensus and picking a final winner. An exhaustive research study that lasts as long as six years is undertaken by the ACSA before a NEWTY™ recipient-candidate is considered.

Justin Sutton and the Interstate Traveler Company, LLC were not informed of their consideration for receipt of the NEWTY™ prior to the announcement that they had been awarded theirs.

The Interstate Traveler Company maintains a website that follows the progress of their efforts at: http://www.interstatetraveler.us .

Scrutinizing Threats to International Energy Industry from Vandalism and Terrorism

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20512) has announced the addition of The Fundamentals of Energy Infrastructure Security: Risk Mitigation In The International Environment to their offering of the world's most comprehensive single source of intelligence on physical security issues in the global energy sector.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 11, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20512) has announced the addition of The Fundamentals of Energy Infrastructure Security: Risk Mitigation In The International Environment to their offering of the world's most comprehensive single source of intelligence on physical security issues in the global energy sector.

This all-encompassing new report examines threats to the energy industry from vandalism, terrorism, low-intensity conflict and war. It provides a guide to effective risk mitigation techniques for energy companies operating in difficult security environments and includes the only single source compilation available of historical and current energy infrastructure security challenges and incidences in 40 countries and energy producing regions.

This unique work, the result of more than a decade of on-the-ground research, will help companies and governments pool information about energy sector attacks around the world and significantly enhance the ability of companies to make accurate threat assessments, optimize security planning and protect facilities more effectively.

Written by Paul Hueper, an expert on global comparative energy infrastructure security issues who has assisted both governments and companies in meeting energy security challenges.

For many observers – including Western governments and militaries – concerns about energy security are linked primarily to the security of oil supplies from the Mideast Gulf. Although more than 20% of the world's oil supply flows through the Strait of Hormuz, analyses of the security of global oil balances often fail to take into account the full scope of threats and risks to other regional and country-specific oil supplies. This often is not done because even in the worst cases, such as with oil pipeline bombings in Colombia or militant take-overs of oil facilities in Nigeria, disruptions to world supplies are either limited or temporary in nature. But attacks on energy infrastructure can be debilitating to both regional markets – which may rely not only on oil volumes from a particular country, but also on specific crude slates needed by refiners – and the economic and political stability of individual countries. Colombia is a prime example: industry confidence in the government's ability to secure the countryside waned in the mid-1990s, leading to a downturn in foreign investment in the country's oil sector.

Part 2: Energy Infrastructure Vulnerability

Part 3: Risk Mitigation

KUA Restores Hurricane Dennis Power Outages

Kissimmee Utility Authority crews and tree trimmers are available around the clock to restore power to affected customers.

Kissimmee, FL (PRWEB) July 10, 2021 -- High winds from Hurricane Dennis on Saturday knocked out power to nearly 1,000 of Kissimmee Utility Authority's 58,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla. Electric service has been restored to all customers.

The utility reported scattered outages throughout Kissimmee caused by lightning, uprooted trees and assorted debris. An uprooted tree brought down power lines in the residential neighborhood of Renee Terrace, located off John Young Parkway, and left 84 customers without power for approximately two hours.

At 7:42 p.m. on Saturday, a broken tree limb forced two major distribution feeders to trip offline. The feeders provide power to portions of downtown Kissimmee and areas adjacent to Michigan Ave. KUA crews cleared the debris and power was restored 13 minutes later at 7:55 p.m.

More power outages are possible overnight as outer bands from Hurricane Dennis continue to move through Central Florida. KUA crews and tree trimmers are available around the clock to restore power to affected customers.

Customers who experience a power outage are asked to call the utility's 24-hour outage line at 407-933-7777.

Manufacturers Find New Ways to Keep Cool

New, newer, and newest heat transfer fluids rescue low-temperature processes.

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 8, 2021 -- A fine-chemical producer in Georgia needed a low-temperature heat transfer fluid to replace the flammable-rated product in their reactor loop. A fragrances and pheromones firm in New England needed much lower temperatures than their citrus-derived fluid was capable of delivering. And a pharmaceutical manufacturer in Puerto Rico needed a non-aqueous food-grade thermal fluid because the specified glycol/water solution couldn’t deliver the cooling capacity the process demanded.

All three companies needed heat transfer fluids better suited to the specific requirements of their cooling processes.

Over the past two years, Paratherm Corporation, a long-time manufacturer of high-temperature heat transfer fluids, has developed a new line of lower-temperature transfer fluids, and these products filled the technical needs of all three processors.

The newest, Paratherm MG™ mid-range fluid is a food-grade non-aqueous heat/cool fluid that eliminates the significant design and operational problems found in steam/chilled-water systems. The fluid, now installed in the Puerto Rico application, is recommended for processes operating from 0°C to 260°C.

Processors with more severe low-temperature requirements are discovering the unique qualities that distinguish Paratherm LR™ Heat Transfer Fluid. This food grade (NSF approved) fluid operates between -40°C and +204°C. Its below 60°C flashpoint allows it to be classified as Combustible rather than Flammable, reducing safety concerns. Chemical, cosmetic, and electronic-materials manufacturers have replaced Silicone-based, glycol/water, and other fluid chemistries with the Paratherm LR fluid. This is the fluid that solved problems in the fine-chemicals plant in Georgia.

Paratherm’s cryogenic-range Paratherm CR™ heat transfer fluid (Patent Pending) was specifically developed to provide the ultra-cold process temperatures (down to -100ºC) pharmaceutical and fine-chemical manufacturers need to increase product purity while simultaneously cutting production time. The low viscosity permits higher fluid turbulence, resulting in faster heat removal than silicone liquids or d-limonene-based fluids. These benefits are providing operational and competitive advantages to the pheromone and fragrances producer in New England.

Paratherm Corporation's product line has grown to seven heat transfer fluids and two high-performance system-cleaner liquids, but the service mission of Paratherm Engineers and Staff has remained the same; to use their thorough knowledge and experience with thermal systems and heat transfer fluids, their relationships with heater and equipment manufacturers, and their focused attention on the needs of customers, to deliver smoothly operating systems and applications, and maximum production, to processors that choose Paratherm.

The market research report "Regulations and Policies securing the future for Australian Energy Market (2005-2020)" gives a comprehensive picture of the Australian energy industry and the policies that regulate it. The report primarily looks at the overall energy consumption in Australia along with the environmental effects like, green house emissions, and the aggregate energy consumption by the end-user by the source of energy.

The connection between the state-based transmission systems and regulatory framework is highlighted. The report focuses on the reforms that have lead to the industry growth, trade and consumption. There have been a number of factors that have lead to a sustained growth of the Australian economy and lifestyle like, high labor and general productivity, and environmental conditions. The Australian energy resources have been providing low-cost energy for the country and have also helped in generating sizeable export income. Along with energy generation, the Australian policies have been implemented in such a manner that the domestic and global environmental issues are taken into account.

The annual expenditure on energy comes to approximately $50 billion in Australia, whereas the export of energy resources comes to approximately $24 billion. Huge capital investments such as setting up of electricity plants, oil and gas production facilities, refineries, wind farms, pipelines, coal, transmission lines, and wholesale and distribution sites are required. The present energy sector scenario in Australia is guided by the Australian Government's objective to ensure that the people have access to competitively priced energy while optimization of the available resources. In fact, the environmental issues are also well managed to meet the future demands that are expected to increase by 50% by 2020.

Australia has been a prime net energy exporter since 1993, but has witnessed a decrease in its revenue from the sector. The other major exports from Australia have been LNG, refined gold, aluminum, alumina, crude oil, iron ore, coking coal, steel, manganese, and iron. The decreasing earning from the exports will be regulated by the third quarter of 2005 by the reformation and regulatory changes that have been implemented by the Australian Government.

Research and Markets: Changes Afoot for the Renewable Energy Industry in the EU

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20383) has announced the addition of The European Renewable Energy Industry Market Review 2005 to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 8, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20383) has announced the addition of The European Renewable Energy Industry Market Review 2005 to their offering.

This Market Assessment report on the EU renewable energy industry reviews the current situation in the market in terms of key statistics and main renewable energy source (RES) technology. This is an emerging sector, which is set to play an important role in the future EU energy mix. The energy industry in the EU is changing as a result of two main factors. First, the EU's indigenous energy supplies are decreasing, so greater reliance will be placed on imported oil and gas. Much of this will be sourced from countries that are not natural trading partners and might well be subject to political disturbances or unrest. This raises the possibility of disruption to energy supplies to the EU. The second major factor is the EU's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: greater use of renewable sources that do not emit greenhouse gases helps in reducing such emissions. In addition, there is a third important factor that could well prove to be a long-term trend — the steep rise in oil prices.

This report provides an analysis of RES activities for the main technologies of biomass, hydropower, geothermal energy, wind power and solar energy. A strategic review of statistics is given for the EU-25 countries for each RES technology. In addition, major EU Directives are also covered. A country-by-country account is given for market structure, along with basic statistics for electricity, heat and biofuels. Each country chapter includes a summary of selected company activities. This report also contains statistics relating to the existing installed capacity or output for the main RES technologies, as well as outlining EU targets and providing an account of progress being made. In addition, initiatives that are being proposed by the EU to encourage further development of the RES sector are covered.

The financing of renewable energy projects requires substantial investment and the degree to which companies are prepared to make these financial investments depends on the availability of incentives and schemes that guarantee a premium for green energy. Changes in government policy that remove or downgrade these incentives can result in a sharp downturn in interest in renewable energy. Planning consent can also be a major issue and for large projects, such as wind farms and biomass installations, local protest, groups can cause schemes to be delayed or abandoned.

In the electricity sector, national grid connections for large RES projects can be difficult and expensive to obtain. For most EU countries, nuclear power is not a favoured method of generating electricity owing to concerns about the possible health and environmental dangers (as well as long-term nuclear waste disposal). However, if energy supplies to the EU appear to be under threat, the nuclear power option is still open. A major re-emergence of nuclear power could represent a challenge to renewable energy, particularly if energy costs rise, which makes nuclear power more attractive.

In the future, little further development is expected for large-scale hydro schemes. Although the wind energy sector is performing well, greater efforts are needed in biomass and biofuels.

Mobile Armor, LLC, a Saint Louis based leading provider of Enterprise Mobile Data Security (EMDS) solutions software, today announced that it has achieved “Designed for Windows XP” certification for DataArmor, its full-disk encryption data security product.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 7, 2021 -- Mobile Armor, LLC, a Saint Louis based leading provider of Enterprise Mobile Data Security (EMDS) solutions software, today announced that it has achieved “Designed for Windows XP” certification for DataArmor, its full-disk encryption data security product. DataArmor’s certification by Microsoft signals users on the high quality of Mobile Armor’s data security software and assures the end user of a consistently trouble-free experience when running Windows XP.

About the Microsoft Designed for Windows XP Program
The Designed for Windows XP logo program focuses specifically on clarifying compatibility questions for the end user. The presence of a logo that includes one of the world’s most recognizable brands assures consumers that they are buying a known quantity when they purchase a product with the logo. With this logo, end users can tell quickly and easily if the software or hardware they want to install is known to work correctly on Windows XP. Absence of the logo does not imply that the software or hardware will necessarily cause problems, only that the outcome is an unknown – the item has not been tested to Microsoft’s standards for Windows XP and the user should be aware of this. Imagine which of two otherwise similar products a user might choose – a product with the logo which is designed to work on Windows XP, or one without such visible assurances.

“Designed for Windows XP certification has been requested by customers for many years in order to ensure flawless performance and usability when encrypting all hard disk data.” said Chand Vyas, CEO of Mobile Armor. “Microsoft’s independent testing requirements should enable our enterprise customers to work with their hardware effortlessly and securely.”

Research and Markets: Remaining Hydro Potential to be Found in Developing Countries

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20217) has announced the addition of Hydropower Report - Large and Small Hydropower Ed 1 2005 to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 6, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20217) has announced the addition of Hydropower Report - Large and Small Hydropower Ed 1 2005 to their offering.

Hydropower is the largest renewable source of electricity. It accounts for 6% of primary energy supply and 17% of electrical generation. Although there are hydro electric projects under construction in about 80 countries most of the remaining hydro potential is found in developing countries particularly in South and Central Asia, Latin America and Africa. This report is a comprehensive study and analysis of the global hydro power market.

This report discusses environmental objections to hydropower and the different impacts on the futures for LHP and SHP. The effects on population, wild life, eco systems, water diversion, landscape, and the potentially critical new problem of methane, which is being researched and could condemn LHP as more environmentally damaging than fossil fuels.

The report covers both large hydropower (LHP) and small hydropower (SHP), mini and micro, and explains the differences between them. It is not simply a question of size but different technologies. It gives an outline of the size of the hydropower industry, separately for large and small. A regional break and analysis of hydropower's distribution country by country is included together with analyses of the future demand for hydropower, both LHP and SHP. The report profiles hydropower in each country and lists of hydro plants in each country, totalling over 2,400.

Strategic Partnership and Joint Venture Between Nethercomm and EN Engineering, the Nicor Gas and A.Epstein & Sons, Int'l, Building Gas Industry Alliances Creating a Primary Pathway for Broadband Delivery Through Natural Gas Pipelines

Nethercomm Corporation and EN Engineering (ENE) announced today their strategic partnership in moving broadband delivery into the future by bringing Broadband-in-Gas (BiG) technology to the natural gas distribution market. BiG enables natural gas distribution companies the ability to offer alternative communication products as a new revenue source. BiG is a compelling opportunity to use existing natural gas pipelines to deliver the next decade of broadband video, voice and data at unprecedented connectivity rates of 100+Mbps.

The partnership between Nethercomm and ENE will enable the advancement of BiG technology to the natural gas distribution market by not only creating a new primary pathway for broadband delivery of content and services but also through a delivery method unmatched today. ENE is focusing on positioning local natural gas companies (LDC’s) across the country as the principle conduit for cost-effective and easily accessible broadband at unparalleled speeds in excess of fiber optics while crossing the last-mile barrier of today’s technology.

Broadband-in-Gas uses radar type signals transmitted “through” the natural gas distribution infrastructure, not only creating a new primary pathway for broadband delivery of content and services but enabling a “previously unobtainable level of connectivity. BiG is a significantly more efficient method of providing broadband communications services which does not require costly routing of copper or fiber optic connections across the “last-mile” of communications nor requires the use of wireless spectrum transmissions which are seriously constrained by regulatory limitations.

ENE’s president, Joe Posewick said, “Our objectives are simple, to use our industry knowledge and experience to provide true value to our clients with innovative technology that not only provides new revenue streams but also cost cutting measures.”

"We are pleased to announce our partnership with ENE and eagerly look forward to supporting their development of a unique consortium of LDCs”, said Ann Nunally, President of Nethercomm Corporation. She went on to say, “We are confident that our partnership will provide tremendous benefits to both the end user and the natural gas distribution industry. ENE and its exceptional team of engineers will enhance this partnership allowing us to create a solid foundation of customers and alliances in taking BiG into the future.”

Nethercomm and ENE are jointly sponsoring a Broadband-in-Gas 2005 Conference on August 24th and 25th, 2005 at the Double Tree Golf Resort in San Diego. For more information on the Broadband-in-Gas 2005 Conference, please visit Nethercomm’s Broadband-in-Gas 2005 conference website for online registration at www.nethercomm.org. Those interested in attending should register and reserve hotel accommodations. Space is limited and registration is required.

Senate Energy Bill Threatens U. S. Economic and National Security; Nuclear Power not the Answer Either, Cleanpeace Says

The Senate Energy Bill speeds up oil depletion and makes America more dependent on OPEC oil, according to Cleanpeace. The bill fails to level the playing field between depletable fossil and radioactive energy and abundant, undeletable, energy including solar, wind, wave and biomass. Hydrogen made from undepletable energy resources can efficiently fuel existing gasoline and diesel engines and begin replacing oil now, when it counts. Its easy access to transportation engines opens this giant market to all undepletable energy resources via hydrogen. Use of hydrogen as an engines fuel begins reversing global warming, cleans the air and water and slows the danerous advance of Peak oil. Oil Company windfall profits drive a policy that endangerous America and its freedoms. Cleanpeace urges defeat of Congress's energy bill unless all subsidies, tax breaks and policy advantages avaialble to fossil and radioactive energy are made available to energy form undepletable reosurces.

Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) June 30, 2021 -- The energy bill that passed the U. S. Senate today and the bill passed by the U S House of Representatives last April hasten the threat to America’s economic and national security. Both energy bills fail to provide a practical path for achievement of American energy independence according to Cleanpeace, a non-profit advocacy group.

“When it comes to dependence on oil, more production means less oil. The more oil taken from the ground today, the less domestic oil left, the slower the rate of its extraction and the greater America’s dependence on imported oil and Middle East OPEC dictators.” said Bill Garrett, Co-President of Cleanpeace.

The world burns six barrels of oil for each one discovered and new oil discoveries tend to be increasingly difficult, expensive, and slow to extract while world prosperity and America’s national security demand increased supplies of inexpensive energy.

Congress’s new energy legislation focuses on subsidizing more rapid depletion of domestic oil, other fossil fuels and a proliferation of radioactive power plants. It fails to adequately provide resources, policies, and most important of all, a level playing field on which to exploit America’s abundant, but underdeveloped, undepletable energy including direct solar, wind, wave and biomass wastes.

“These energy resources are ultimately far more abundant than fossil and radioactive fuels. Every day the Earth receives more solar energy than all the fossil fuels ever deposited on the continents and the technology to exploit it is available now,” said Roy McAlister, Co-President of Cleanpeace and President of the American Hydrogen Association.

Accelerating depletion of America’s oil reserves puts America’s national security in peril and could make us subservient to the will of the OPEC dictators and the Middle East radicals who influence them.

The abundant energy available from domestic undepletable resources could begin replacing oil near term, when its needed, and rapidly develop into the primary fuel of America if allowed to compete on a level playing field with fossil and radioactive fuels.

Hydrogen can be cleanly and efficiently burned in existing, ordinary gasoline and diesel engines and it can be made from most all undepletable resources including direct solar, wind, wave and biomass wastes. Via hydrogen, these undepletable resources can begin powering the transportation sector and, as infrastructure is built, can become the primary replacement fuel for oil, said Garrett.

The need to replace oil is urgent. At best, America has less than 3% of world oil reserves, OPEC controls 61%. China and India aggressively compete with the U. S. for world oil reserves to power their rapid economic growth.

U. S. prosperity depends on consuming 26% of world oil production and America imports 60% of the 21 million barrels of oil we use each day. Depleting America’s comparatively meager U.S. reserves is enormously profitable for oil companies but very dangerous for U.S. economy and security.

“The energy message from Congress to the world should have been that America’s energy bill committed the nation to an emergency program on par with America’s best wartime efforts to achieve ENERGY INDEPENDENCE by rapid development of abundant wind, solar, wave, falling water, and biomass resources.”, Said McAlister.

The unburnished truth is that adequate reserves of inexpensive oil are an endangered species with no hope of regeneration.

The energy bill should have put OPEC’s oil markets clearly in the competitive sights of America’s independent energy scientists; inventors and entrepreneurs, the Thomas Edisons, the Wright brothers, and the Bill Gateses of the energy movement. It should have been a declaration of America’s energy independence backed by a policy that allows undepletable energy to compete with oil now on a level playing field.

Heavy oil and oil from shale rocks and sands won’t fill the oil gap. Strip mining, steaming or chemically coaxing oil out of rocks or sand can not match the gushing extraction rates of the cheap oil that powers the world now.

The radioactive fuels so heavily subsidized in Congress’s new energy bill are not an answer either. It would take over Two Thousand mammoth, one gigawatt nuclear plants to produce enough hydrogen to replace oil in the transportation sector alone. They’d be more like corner stores than remote power sources. Imagine the radio active wastes and the dirty bombs that could be produced from it, said Garrett.

Radioactive energy is not feasible without heavy government subsidies, insurance limitations, tax breaks, purchase guarantees, taxpayer supported waste storage and other government benefits. Oil would cost well over $5.00 a gallon without government subsidies, and tax breaks. At that price undepletable energy could compete favorably with oil. Equal subsidies and tax benefits would make them competitive now.

Hydrogen burns clean emitting only water. Making it the primary replacement fuel for oil would clean the air and water, begin reversing global warming and lessen world tensions over competition for oil.

The International Energy Administration estimates the cost of providing adequate supplies of energy from fossil and radioactive fuels from now until 2030 is $3Three Trillion. The cost of a complete hydrogen infrastructure is estimated at $600 Hundred billion.

The technology to make undepletable fuels competitive in oil markets is here, the abundant, undepletable domestic energy resources are here. All that’s missing is the will of Congress to create a level playing field for undepletable energy, said Garrett.

Cleanpeace urges defeat of the energy bill unless it is amended to provide a level playing between depletable and undepletable energy. America’s future depends on it.
