Jambon Boats - Cyprus
Jambon Boats has a far and wide reach, including the country of Cyprus, which the U.S. Energy Information Administration described as, so on their website:
“Like Israel, Cyprus hopes that its recent discoveries will allow for substitution away from petroleum products towards utilizing more natural gas in the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. At present, Cyprus neither produces nor consumes any natural gas, nor is the country an oil producer. However, Cyprus plans to begin natural gas production from the offshore Aphrodite field as early as 2017. EIA estimates petroleum products met up to 98 percent of Cyprus' total primary energy demand in 2011, so the effect of oil prices on the country's economy is significant. Consumption of petroleum averaged 55,000 bbl/d between 2000 and 2011, peaking in 2008 at 60,000 bbl/d.”
The country’s imports are described in EIA.gov as go:
“Like Israel, Cyprus hopes to develop sufficient volumes of natural gas to meet domestic demand and reduce the need for imported petroleum products, but commercial development of the country's natural gas resources is still a few years away. Assuming that Cyprus completes the necessary infrastructure improvements, natural gas imports delivered on a short-term supply contract could begin in 2015. That short-term contract should provide adequate supply until volumes from the Aphrodite field are commercially available.
Early reports indicate that import volumes would be in the 28-41 Bcf per year range. Given that natural gas-fired generation is still a few years away, the need to import petroleum products is unlikely to decline in the near term.” Jambon Boats has clients in this progressive country.
Nigeria Needs Oil
The largest producer of oil in Africa is Nigeria, and in a continent that is struggling to feed its people, it is time that they find ways to expand their oil production. Nigeria’s economy is still developing, and much of the infrastructure that surrounds their current oil industry is lack luster and is in the need of advancement. What better way to encourage this advancement in their oil efficiency than to provide them with more access to their own oil to work with?
Nigeria’s exports of energy sources help provide the entire African continent with fuel to manage and pursue better futures for them all. Nigeria gaining access to more of their oil reserves through increases in equipment and infrastructure will not only increase the status of their economy, it will also allow the other surrounding African countries to be better supported in times when Africa is being hit the hardest. Nigeria’s energy consumption is also high, and the infrastructure needs to be supported by an international player that knows how to develop and support companies in the oil industry.
A Louisiana-based commercial vessel supplier is working with Nigeria to fix these problems and give them the tools they need to expand their markets. Jambon Boats has been doing business with Nigeria to provide them with supply vessels, as well as help maintain their oil regulations and produce a better infrastructure for the companies that are extracting there. They help many countries around the world gain access to oil production and transportation, and are now on the brink of bringing Nigeria into a leading position as a larger international oil producer.
Does oil technology need a revamp?
Oil reserves have a hold on the economies and the sustainability of almost every country in the world. As the future looks towards the depressing truth that that oil will one day run out, new technology is desperately being looked at for a way to go about oil extraction, oil alternatives, and greener methods for producing energy. This new initiative has been raising many questions over the last few years as to how the scientific community will act in response, when much of the world is almost entirely dependent on such a large product such as oil.
There are other alternatives like the wind and solar energy if any real alternatives can become implemented; it must be able to replace the importance and significance that oil has on the international stage. This means that there much be a massive amount of energy that no wind or solar power will have room to replace. The academic and scientific communities are looking instead for alternative methods to fuels, such as corn or chemically compounded fuels that do not use oil or petroleum.
Though many organizations and country leaders are pushing for greener alternatives to energy production, another group of parties are looking to solve the problem by simply making oil extraction better, more efficient, and more environmentally sound, so that oil does not come under fire for the reputation that it has. Jambon Boats, one of the world's leading commercial vessel suppliers to the oil and gas industry, has been making aims at promoting fracking as the only method of oil extraction, to ensure that oil stays an important resource for the world.
Who is at the top of the oil industry ?
Oil is one of the largest resource goods on the planet today, and is a major point of economic dominancy that has lead some countries to success, others to struggle for years, and some countries have even gone to war. This powerful resource has brought about some of the largest companies in the world to existence, and some of the richest men in the world to the top. So which countries hold the largest share of the oil production in the world?
Russia is the country that makes the top of the list, believe it or no. In 2012, the country of Russia produced around 10.9 million barrels of oil a year, according to the International Energy Agency. This is the most oil production in the world and is one of the most important accelerators of the Russian economy. You would never have thought it was Russia, would you?
Next on the list is, of course, Saudi Arabia. Right behind Russia with 9.7 million barrels of oil per year, Saudi Arabia has been an area of great conflict concerning the amount of oil production there. The soils are rich in natural fossil fuels over there and have easily become the reason some of the richest men in the world live in Saudi Arabia.
While third is certainly not the best, the United States takes that spot. With much innovation and expansion in their oil production, the United States takes the third spot with 9.3 million barrels in a year. With large international companies, such as Jambon Boats in Louisiana, one of the world's leading commercial vessel suppliers, the United States has had room to expand and increase their rein over this precious commodity.
