(Credit: Terry McGraw from Pixabay) National Oil Corporation (NOC) confirms the return of production at the Sharara oil field south of the country, after lengthy negotiations by the NOC to reopen the Hamada valve, which had been illegally closed last January- resulting in the shutdown of production and collapse of the tank (Surge Tank D101 B), whose capacity is 16,000 barrels and is situated in area (GOSP115) at the field, after an armed militia prevented NOC’s maintenance teams from carrying out maintenance operations.NOC chairman, Eng. Mustafa Sanalla, commented: “The Libyan economy has suffered enough from the illegal blockades and We have much to do, and we hope that the restart of production at the Sharara oil field will be a first step to reviving the Libyan oil and gas sector and preventing an economic collapse in Libya in these difficult times”.The first production phase will start at a capacity of 30,000 barrels/day. Production at the field is expected to return to full capacity within 90 days due to the damages resulted by very long shutdown .The illegal blockade for a period of 142 days cost the public treasury losses estimated at about USD 5,269,251,172.00 billion Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

Industrial Hemp Might Be The Crop Of Indiana’s Future

first_img February 15, 2018  By Abrahm Hurt for TheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS — Lawmakers are continuing to advance a bill that would allow Hoosier farmers to market hemp and CBD oil.House Bill 1137 clearly defines that hemp and its related products, like CBD oil or cannabidiol, are not marijuana and therefore are not regulated by the state’s drug laws. The Senate Commerce and Technology Committee approved it by an 8-3 vote Wednesday.The bill would allow Indiana farmers to plant and harvest hemp. Hemp is the fiber of a cannabis plant that has a THC level of less than 0.3 percent, which is the substance in marijuana that gives users a high.Hemp seeds can be eaten, and the fiber can be used for insulation, car parts and clothing.While some people still have some concerns that this bill might contain loopholes that would allow people to use recreational or medicinal marijuana, Sen. Randy Head, R-Logansport, said that was not the point of the bill.Sen. Randy Head, R-Logansport, gives testimony over House Bill 1137 in the Senate Commerce and Technology Committee. Head said he wanted to continue to discuss concerns regarding the bill. Photo by Abrahm Hurt, TheStatehouseFile.com“The point of the bill is to create the opportunity for Indiana farmers to grow a cash crop that’s being grown and produced in other states and used in goods,” said Head, the Senate sponsor of the bill.Head said he wanted to continue to work with the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, the Prosecuting Attorney’s Council, the State Police, the Hemp Association, Farm Bureau and the Governor’s office to address concerns and work on the bill.Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, said he authored the bill to bring an exploding industry to the state.“Indiana is the number one manufacturing state in the nation,” he said during his testimony. “We’re one of the best agricultural states in the nation, and it really does not make sense why we’re not taking full advantage of this incredible plant.”Brian Furnish, an eighth-generation farmer from Kentucky, helped pass similar legislation related to hemp in 2014. He also worked to get legislation passed at the federal level as well.Furnish, who has harvested 996 acres of hemp, said that hemp is the crop of the future. He said that the gross revenue for one acre of hemp is $3,000.“It’s our opinion, if this is done right, that hemp in the United States, and in Indiana and Kentucky especially, will be bigger than corn in my lifetime,” he said during his testimony.Sen. Jean Leising, R-Oldenburg, voted against the bill because she said it could put Indiana at odds with federal law.“I just think that everybody here needs to understand that even though some other states have adopted and are doing this, it may be questionable under federal law at the very least,” she said.FOOTNOTE:Abrahm  Hurt is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Slippery customer

first_imgIt seems like a simple process. Grease a baking tin with release agent and your product will slide easily from it.But release agents can also affect things like the finish and shape of baked goods, and different products require specific agents, explains Alfred Fowler, sales director of Croda Food Services.”If you use too much release agent or the wrong kind, you can end up frying the crust or making the outer part of the product soggy. It can even affect the shape of your product. That is why there are specific agents for different cakes and breads.”He continues: “The releasing part of the process is of prime importance because if the baker has done everything correctly, up to that point, but is unable to release the bread from the tin or the cake from the shape, all his time has been in vain.”Release agents are an area of expertise for Croda, a specialist manufacturer of technical oils and fats. Based in Oldham, Lancashire, it supplies major bread and cake manufacturers and in-store and craft bakeries.One of its most recent innovations has been to develop trans fat free release agents.”Retailers want to remove all hydrogenated fats from their products,” says Fowler. “Marks & Spencer, for example, set a deadline of April 2006. We had to be sure the new release agents retained their quality and function so we had to do lots of tests and plant trials.”Other health issues that Croda has to be aware of is avoiding contamination by a build up of carbon. “Therefore, as little agent should be used as possible without compromising on its effectiveness,” says Fowler. “Because we do regular servicing and design the machines that apply the agents, we can make sure there is not an excess of carbon build-up.”Croda’s release agents are made from vegetable oils, emulsifiers and waxes and are compltely free from mineral hydrocarbons.Its main areas of specialisation include: release agents for use in bread, cake, pizza and sugar confectionery applications; speciality products designed to replace mineral oils in bakery machine lubrication; emulsifiers for the large cake manufacturers; and speciality liquid, powdered and flaked fats for the food and bakery industries.Croda also supplies organic release agents that are certified by the Soil Association, as well as soya-free lubricants.To help bakers decide which release agent is required for their products, Croda has developed an online Matrix test (see [http://www.croda.com]).The company’s release agents range includes:l Greetin: a vegetable oil-based emulsion for automated, high volume bread lines.l Starspray: designed for use by the in-store and craft baker, where application is by brush or hand spray.l So-Free: an alternative range of release agents that are completely free from soya-based ingredients.last_img read more

Press release: Oxford mobile phone dealer handed 12 year disqualification

first_img Press Office You can also follow the Insolvency Service on: William Robert Howard (45) director of the now liquidated Expeditors Limited has entered into an undertaking that prevents him from acting as a director for 12 years.The mobile phone business was incorporated in 2004 and a petition was made to wind up Expeditors Limited in June 2017 by HM Revenue & Customs regarding an unpaid VAT bill of £22,545.40.The Insolvency Service then conducted an investigation, which focused on the mobile phone company’s participation in a form of VAT fraud known as Missing Trader Intra Community fraud (MTIC).Commonly known as ‘carousel’ fraud, MITC fraud sees large consignments of high-value electrical or small items invoiced rapidly and repeatedly around trading chains. On paper the goods look like they are being moved repeatedly from customer to customer but the goods are only moved as they enter or exit the UK.In the case of Expeditors Limited, William Howard used the scheme to offset VAT and reclaim close to £350,000 in its 2005 to 2006 VAT return.Examples of MITC conducted by William Howard were indicated by the rapid succession of same-day trades within the UK but goods weren’t delivered and remained on a shared freight forwarder, there were common uses of the same offshore bank, as well as payments being arranged with third parties who were neither suppliers nor customers.Additionally, all the traders banked with the First Curacao International Bank which was shut down by the Netherlands Antilles authorities in September 2006 in order to prevent money laundering.William Howard’s disqualification started on 5 February 2018 and means that he cannot promote, manage, or be a director of a limited company until 2030.Anthony Hannon, Official Receiver in the Public Interest Unit of the Insolvency Service, said: This service is for journalists only.

We do this by effectively enforcing the statutory company and insolvency regimes, maintaining public confidence in those regimes and reducing the harm caused to victims of fraudulent activity and to the business community, including dealing with the disqualification of directors in corporate failures.BEIS’ mission is to build a dynamic and competitive UK economy that works for all, in particular by creating the conditions for business success and promoting an open global economy. The Criminal Investigations and Prosecutions team contributes to this aim by taking action to deter fraud and to regulate the market. They investigate and prosecute a range of offences, primarily relating to personal or company insolvencies.The agency also authorises and regulates the insolvency profession, assesses and pays statutory entitlement to redundancy payments when an employer cannot or will not pay employees, provides banking and investment services for bankruptcy and liquidation estate funds and advises ministers and other government departments on insolvency law and practice.Further information about the work of the Insolvency Service, and how to complain about financial misconduct, is available.Contact press officeMedia enquiries for this press release – 020 7674 6910 or 020 7596 6187 MTIC fraud has caused loss to the public purse and has cost the tax payer substantial sums in fraudulent VAT claims.
