Konstantinos Kazinakis of United Bunkers Investors Corporation Suggests a Hopeful Future for Oil and Gas

One of the most dramatic changes in the oil and gas industry has been in the improved efficiency of gas flaring.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada - February 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

While oil and gas companies continue to be in high demand worldwide, many fear the future of the industries are unclear because of their high negative impact on the environment. However, some believe there is hope to develop cleaner emissions and safer extraction that ensures all parties will feel comfortable investing in the goods. Petroleum expert and Chief Operating Officer of United Bunkers Investors Corporation, a Toronto-based oil trading group, Konstantinos Kazinakis has examined some of the industry’s newest and most promising efforts to remain good environmental stewards.

One of the most dramatic changes in the oil and gas industry according to Konstantinos Kazinakis, has been in the improved efficiency of gas flaring, a necessary component of production. With their interest in advancing sustainability, the global oil industry joined with the World Bank to form the Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership which has set the ambitious goal of zero flaring by 2030. The project has already produced dramatic changes. Between 2005 and 2010, the flaring of gas was cut worldwide by 22%, from 172 billion cubic meters to 134 bcm. Even with this substantial change, at the end of 2011, it was estimated that flared gas accounted for 150 × 109 cubic meters worldwide, which is equivalent to about 25% of the annual natural gas consumption in the United States or about 30% of the annual gas consumption in the European Union. If it were to reach market, this quantity of gas would be worth $29.8 billion USD, proving that sustainability can also be profitable, says Kazinakis.

A second major development is in the area of hydraulic fracturing, commonly called “fracking,” which is the technique for recovering gas and oil from shale rock through the use of high pressure water, sand and chemical injections deep underground. The innovative process has resulted in an exceptional supply of clean-burning natural gas, which has been dramatically changing transportation and power generation around the world. An exciting new process invented by GE, uses a technology called “membrane distillation” which combines heat and decreased pressure to vaporize water using membranes that separate pure water vapor from salt water, making fracking an increasingly clean and viable extraction process. “Once this technology is scaled-up, GE’s membrane distillation has the potential to significantly reduce water issues right at the drilling sites,” explains Kazinakis, “In terms of sustainability, this would prove an exponential evolution for the gas and oil industry, and one particularly applicable to the unique environmental needs of the U.S. Marcellus Shale deposit.”

With over 21 years of industry experience, the Chief Operating Officer for United Bunkers Investors Corporation, Konstantinos Kazinakis, and Mr. Osama Eissa Chairman & CEO of United Bunkers Investors Corporation takes a particular interest in the management of overall trade financing and commodity trading, handling nearly $1.5 billion in assets. Kazinakis’ particular expertise is in company debt restructuring and equity investments - both important to the oil and shipping companies. United Bunkers Investors Corporation is supported by Financial Technology trade financing platform for a high technology solution to the global trade finance market, which is worth more than $ 4 Trillion US dollars a year, the gap is currently around $1.4 Trillion for the innovation in making trade financing more efficient and to protect against all risk.

Feds: Uber self-driving SUV saw pedestrian, did not brake

May 24, 2018

DETROIT — The autonomous Uber SUV that struck and killed an Arizona pedestrian in March spotted the woman about six seconds before hitting her, but did not stop because the system used to automatically apply brakes in potentially dangerous situations had been disabled, according to federal investigators. In a preliminary report on the crash, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that emergency braking is not enabled while Uber's cars are under computer control, "to reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior." Instead, Uber relies on a human backup driver to intervene. The system, however, is not designed to alert...

Michigan Supreme Court justice: Judges must cool rhetoric

May 24, 2018

DETROIT — A Michigan Supreme Court justice has a message for judges who seem to seek vengeance: cool it, folks. Justice Bridget McCormack said judges should drop rhetoric that "would validly call into question judicial impartiality." She said it's important these days, especially "when our norms of public discourse appear under stress." McCormack was referring to a Jackson County case involving a man who broke into the home of a police officer and trashed it, even breaking a 100-gallon (380-liter) aquarium. Judge John McBain said he wished the officer would have returned home in time. "Because you know what?" McBain...

LONDON — We meet again, Mr. Bond — or maybe not.

The TV spot shows a shark gliding through an aquarium, watched by a child who backs away nervously before being comforted by his mother. A voiceover says that, as an intelligence officer, "it is not keeping your cool in the shark tank, it is picking up the silent cues that matter." The ad, airing Thursday on British TV, ends: "MI6: Secretly we are just like...

HELENA, Mont. — The head of the Montana Democratic Party on Thursday asked for a congressional ethics investigation into whether Republican U.S. Rep.

Trump signs bill easing post-2008 crisis restraints on banks

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Thursday signed into law a measure that loosens key restraints for banks imposed after the 2008 financial crisis and Great Recession. Savoring the legislative triumph, he called it "the next step in America's unprecedented economic comeback."

The 2010 law was enacted by President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress in response to the crisis that brought millions of lost jobs and foreclosed homes. Trump held a...
