All actions begin as thought.

International Experience:
Years   Country / Region   Summary
1997 to 1915   Russia   SP State University, International Educational Ambassador Successfully initiated, developed and implemented a wide range of events, educational and cultural programs promoting cultural and economic regeneration of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Introduced modern public relations programs and entrepreneurial training to Russia as part of the Yeltsin/Clinton Presidential Management Training Initiative: Management Styles and Business Behavior.

2012 to 1915   Russian Federation   We work as special purpose companies created to take advantage of relationships developed by our principals and associates with leaders and key business contacts in nations throughout the world. SPV OIL We provide consulting in areas of technology and operations for special projects of national interest based on the knowledge, unique experience, and networks of our extended team.

As a result of providing support on international projects and special use technologies, we do, from time to time, acquire petroleum products with preferential terms and/or significant discounts to primary market prices. We sell these allocations in the secondary and derivatives markets.

Our buyers are interested in 1) hedging their current positions, 2) softening their near-term exposure, 3) adjusting their acquisition strategy (buy, hold, sell), and 4) meeting unexpected increases in demand to augment their annual contracts without having to go to the 'spot' market.

We work directly with buy and sell-side principals (Wholesalers and End Users) to complete individual or joint venture trades. We believe in proper due diligence and work deliberately to ensure the validity of transactions and to protect the assets, time and reputations of all those involved.

Overall, today's energy market provides a healthy business environment upon which to leverage our strategic thinking and political/business connections.

We are currently developing buying opportunities for principals interested in moving LNG, LPG, Jet Fuel (JP54), Mazut / M100 / Gasoil, Diesel (D2), Crude, and other oil products targeted at our customers' secondary market needs.

We have been tasked to fully exploit the resellers' multi-billion dollar European Credit Line. We seek alignment with private upstream producers - with little to no direct distribution capabilities - to a public international distribution firm with little upstream production capability.
