PV 3.0 Era, LONGi Solar Leading The Way

At the upcoming Solar Power International trade show in Las Vegas, LONGi Solar, the world’s largest manufacturer of monocrystalline solar cells & modules, will introduce its 300W+ solar module series, based on 60-cell standard modules with over 300W nominal power and 72-cell modules exceeding 360W.

This marks the entry into the PV 3.0 era, which is based on solar modules with nominal power ratings above 300W that are becoming available in large quantities this year, as the pioneers in production of high efficiency, high quality solar cells, such as mono PERC, are reaching GW-size production levels.

“PV 3.0 means that we are entering a phase that enables solar investors to use high efficiency, high quality and high energy yield crystalline modules of over 300 W nominal power for their solar installations,” said Mr. Zhengguo Li, President and Founder of LONGi Group.

The PV 3.0 era follows on PV 2.0 and PV 1.0, which in simple terms, are defined as periods when modules had power ratings between 100 W and 300 W (PV 2.0), and solar panel power was below 100 W (PV 1.0). The nominal power rating has been the key differentiator of solar modules since their introduction in the 1950s – and that’s what module customers pay for. High efficiency, high quality and high energy yield solar modules with power ratings above 300 W will enable sustainable solar system designs that provide competitive levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) generation.

LONGi Solar is currently ramping up the capacity of its vertically integrated solar cell/module factory in Malaysia to reach 600MW of monocrystalline silicon PERC capacity by the end of 2017 to serve its customers with tariff-free solar modules exceeding 300 W. In total, LONGi Solar’s cell/module production capacity will reach 6.5 GW by the end of 2017.

LONGi Solar will present its product solutions for the PV 3.0 era at events on three different Continents in September. SolarPower International (Las VegasSept. 10-13, booth No. 4575), Bloomberg – The Future of Energy Summit (LondonSept. 18-19), PV Expo (0saka, Sept. 20-22), REI India (New DelhiSept. 20-22).

Chinese Fashion Smart Brand FERACE Seeks to Disrupt the Smart Sports Watch Market

Watches that transmit data over Bluetooth have always dominated the global smart sports watch market. Consumers want a product that has an independent SIM card slot so that they can have their morning jog or even run a half marathon without having to lug around their cellphone. FERACE, a popular smart sports watch brand in China, seems headed on the right track for causing a disruption in the market.

FERACE is the first watch bearing the Qualcomm Wear 2100 chip to offer a complete experience, as well as the world’s first 4G smart sports watch that supports all networks. FERACE has an independent SIM card slot and allows for independent calls, with support for more applications such as offline payment. This means that a sports watch is no longer limited to being simply a measuring device but rather a smart tool that can be used independently of a mobile phone and supports a wide range of personalized applications.

FERACE is a pioneer in rolling out the Smart Wearables 2.0 era, by developing smart wearable devices that can be used independently from smartphones and are scenario-based, a feature that makes the devices truly suitable for a variety of use cases, including outdoor sports. Many of the internationally well-known watch and smart wearable brands are following FERACE’s lead in developing new products that liberate the wearer from their smartphone and have practical application across a wide range of activities and situations.

The FERACE smart sports watch made its debut at Mobile World Congress 2017, and the first version, FERACE 3, immediately attracted the attention of sports enthusiasts and the distribution channels for sports watches. The rapid climb in sales of FERACE 3 and the positive response the watch has received across China are clear evidence that the market’s optimism about the product is not accidental.

Watches that support independent calls have, to date, not been available in the global smart watch market. Many of the currently available professional sports devices must be connected to mobile phones via Bluetooth, enabling online music and other functions. Although they are publicized as being able to make calls, the need for wearers to carry their large-screen mobile phones while jogging is a pain point that has not yet been addressed, while the stability of the Bluetooth connection between these devices and mobile phones is not something that can be guaranteed, with dropped calls and other annoyances, although occasional, still occurring.

While retaining the Bluetooth functionality, FERACE 3 allows the wearer to make calls and surf the internet by inserting a SIM card. Whether a short morning run or a half marathon, you can leave your mobile phone at home and will not miss any important calls while the hassle of lugging around the phone is eliminated. This feature is an important one for sports enthusiasts, especially the users of large-screen mobile phones.

FERACE comes with a nine-axis sensor as well as an altimeter, a barometer and other commonly used measuring tools for sports. Combined with the latest in algorithmic software, the watch provides the most professional data monitoring and motion guidance for sports enthusiasts. The medical grade photoelectric heart rate sensing chip and professional motion sensing chip deployed by FERACE 3 is accurate to within 3 beats per minute (bpm) in terms of the resting rate, while conventional smart watches on the market have a +/- error rate of up to 10 bpm.

FERACE 3 uses the highest standard 665mAh Li-polymer battery, ensuring endurance even in times of high levels of movement. In addition, it features a 400×400 AMOLED display using Corning Gorilla Glass and supports basic functions such as having the screen brighten as a result of a simple movement of the wrist. The outer frame of the watch is made of zirconia ceramics, a material that is known both for its strength and its aesthetics. Users can change the dial and watchband on their own.

FERACE 3 supports a variety of advanced yet practical functions including wrist payment and online translation through Android/iOS system applications. Offline payment is proving to be the feature seen by users as the most practical of the new additions. FERACE 3 allows the user to buy a bottle of water when running via wrist payment, without a mobile phone, a wallet or an internet connection.

The FERACE smart sports watch was created and is produced by China-based Shenzhen Hoin Internet Technology (, one of the few companies worldwide with extensive experience in both GPS positioning and wireless communications.

The increasing demand for oil and related derivatives necessitates the high production of crude oil globally. The global production of crude oil is growing, as most countries are focusing on extracting more from existing as well as new and unconventional reserves. The increase in the production of heavy crude oil will result in higher consumption of demulsifiers. Hence, the growing production of crude oil is expected to drive the demulsifier market in the future.

Oil soluble segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type segment of the demulsifier market

Oil soluble is estimated to be the most widely used demulsifier type during the forecast period. In terms of value, the oil soluble type segment accounted for the largest share of the demulsifier market in 2016. This segment is projected to grow at a considerable rate during the forecast period. Oil soluble are the most effective demulsifiers in separating water in oil emulsion in crude oil, as oil is in the continuous phase and water is in the dispersed phase.

North American Roof Moating Market accounted for the largest share in 2016

The North American region accounted for the largest share of the Roof Moating Market in 2016, wherein the US was the largest country-level market. The market in the US is mature; however, it is projected to witness a steady growth rate mainly due to new constructions being planned for the coming years. The Roof Moating Market is also expected to grow because the costs of repairing roof coatings are much cheaper than replacing the entire roof. Government regulations regarding specified volatile organic compound (VOC) content in roof coating has driven companies to engage in product developments. Also, the commercial usage of roof coating is checked by regulatory bodies to control its harmful impact on the environment.

10 Cities in Asia-Pacific Poised to be Smart Cities by 2025

Asia-Pacific is a frontier of growth, development, and activity having quickly embraced disruptive trends in its journey to grow. Urbanization and demand for city services, ICT penetration, as well as the rising middle class and the need to improve quality of life has driven demand for smart cities in Asia-Pacific.

The Asia-Pacific region depicts an eclectic mix of cities. While markets such as Japan and South Koreaalready have fairly intelligent cities, others such as Thailand and Indonesia are slowly setting up smaller projects in governance and citizen services.

According to Hazmi Yusof, Managing Director, Malaysia and Senior Vice President at Frost & Sullivan, there are about 10 cities that are expected to become smart cities by 2025 in the Asia-Pacific region, of which, more than 50% will be in China.

“Several government agendas in this region are driving the building of smarter cities in SingaporeJapanChina, and South Korea. Investments are expected to grow from US$55.6 billion in 2013 to US$260 billion in 2020,” he said. “Eight emerging cities also have standalone smart city projects, which when scaled-up, can achieve the smart city status by 2030 and beyond.”

Key Parameters That Will Define a Smart City in 2025 and Beyond

Smart cities are cities built on “smart” and “intelligent” solutions and technology that focuses on managing and improving its citizen lives in a responsible and sustainable manner. The ever increasing importance of managing the pace of urbanization especially in the region has resulted in governments increasing its focus on making the “smart” journey.

In smart cities of Asia-Pacific, technology and governance will be key enablers for participants in this ecosystem. Smart cities will emerge as Big Data hubs with data from sensors and networks being collected, analyzed, and monitored in real-time by a central monitoring command center. This will be used to optimize and streamline city operations and resolve issues in real-time.

“Communication service providers and network service partners play a key role in forming the technological backbone to roll-out smart cities. Singtel in Singapore and Telstra in Australia have laid out US$500 million and US$100 million, respectively, to enable smart city technology platforms and infrastructure. Telekom Malaysia in Malaysia plans to build a data center and provide cloud computing and smart services in a technology park,” said Hazmi.

He continued, “Connectivity will be a key enabler while designing an omni-channel experience platform across all touch points including online and mobile. Data from sensors will enable new technologies to integrate softer aspects, such as customer perception and citizen awareness.”

Hazmi Yusof will present his insights on global smart cities and the opportunities they offer at the Invest Iskandar Malaysia 2017 Symposium to be held at Phoenix Hotel, Forest City, Johor, Malaysia on the 4th October 2017. For more information, please visit

Ganeden Brings Probiotic Exhibit and Expertise to Fi Asia

As probiotic fortification continues to gain momentum around the world, probiotic leader Ganeden is expanding its presence at additional food and beverage events globally—including in Asia. This September, experts from the top probiotic ingredient supplier will be attending Food Ingredients Asia (Fi Asia) in Bangkok. Team members based locally and from the U.S. headquarters will be on site to discuss new probiotic research, offer insight into upcoming product launches and help manufacturers explore innovative probiotic formulations beyond traditional dairy applications.

Ganeden has become a driving force in the probiotic space internationally, helping hundreds of manufacturers use probiotic technology in their products in innovative ways—including many in Asia. As a global leader, the science-driven company is knowledgeable on probiotic trends around the world, including consumer demand, research advancements and innovative options for probiotic fortification beyond the dairy case. Experts can assist in probiotic ingredient selection, including providing details on strain specificity, study requirements and health benefits.

“There are tremendous growth opportunities for probiotic technologies in the Asian market, and Fi Asia gives us a chance to provide expertise on how health benefits can be added to products to drive consumer interest and purchases,” said Stephen Quinn, business and regulatory director for Asia at Ganeden. “We plan to meet with industry leaders and innovators to demonstrate how functional ingredients can benefit end-users and grow business. There is a strong tradition of probiotics in Asia, but nearly all of it is in the supplement and dairy categories, so having a chance to provide the same health benefits in other food and beverage applications is exciting for manufacturers and their customers.”

Ganeden is best known for GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), its patented and shelf stable probiotic ingredient that remains viable through most manufacturing processes, shelf life and gastric transit—allowing it to be fortified into almost any food or beverage product. Years of ongoing studies confirm the strain’s safety, digestive and immune support, and protein utilization benefits. And because GanedenBC30 has been shown to survive 10X more effectively than yogurt cultures, it has become one of the top ingredient choices for probiotic benefits in both refrigerated and non-refrigerated products.

During the show, Ganeden will also introduce the newest addition to its ingredient portfolio—Staimune™. The new ingredient uses the inactivated cells of GanedenBC30, which have been shown to support immune health. Staimune’s ease of formulation opens up new opportunities in immune-focused, functional foods and beverages which involve processes too harsh for live probiotics.

To meet with probiotic experts at the Fi Asia show, contact Ganeden or visit booth #F34. For more information on the probiotic company, including its ingredient portfolio, research and international presence, visit

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific Going ASEAN With GOASEAN

Award-winning multi-platform content provider Malaysian company GOASEAN has entered into an agreement with Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific (DNAP) to broadcast its programmes across Southeast AsiaTaiwan and Hong Kong on the Discovery Asia channel. This will add another broadcast channel to the multi-platform GOASEAN, the first-ever Southeast-Asia-centric travel lifestyle initiative, enabling GOASEAN’s programmes to reach a much wider audience in Asia-Pacific, and attract more tourist interest to the region.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with DNAP. This will enable us to reach and inspire more people to travel to and within the Southeast Asian region. Discovery Asia is certainly a fitting platform for GOASEAN, as the network’s first fully dedicated Asia-focused channel; and like us, is dedicated to travel, lifestyle, food and culture that Asia has to offer. Our programmes also fit into DNAP’s philosophy of bringing audience the best of real-world entertainment that is both visceral and experiential. Both parties can leverage the synergy of the collaboration to increase our audience and to offer them engaging and entertaining yet insightful experiences,” remarked Edwin Raj, GOASEAN’s Senior Vice President.

GOASEAN Original Series that includes the award-winning Go Fast or Go HomeSupper Heroes, The Halal Foodie and Strange Encounters, will now be aired over satellite and cable television, over and above its online and mobile gateways for content streaming.  Discovery Asia is available in 11 countries in Asia-Pacific and has a reach of 14 million viewers.

Rohit Tharani, Director of Content Curation, Discovery Southeast Asia, said, “This is the first time in Discovery Southeast Asia history that we have invested in such a large volume of diverse local content — on a local and regional level. GOASEAN’s content is fitting with Discovery Asia’s offering to uncover Asia at its best and most wondrous. We believe that GOASEAN’s content line-up will provide a direct and relevant appeal amongst audiences across SEA, Taiwan and Hong Kong.”

Edwin Raj added, “No one knows Southeast Asia like we do, and our programmes and content reflect this.  Featuring natural wonders, hidden jewels, diverse uniqueness of the people, culture and food of the region, viewers will be enticed to travel here.”

“The ASEAN nations will definitely benefit from this, as it will highlight the region’s travel treasures to a wider audience and help them promote their country’s attractions, food and culture, thus driving growth in their tourism arrivals and industry.”

GOASEAN’s achievements in just two years of its existence are impressive. It has produced 20 original series of travel-related programmes and 65 hours of programming. In achieving that, GOASEAN’s production team has travelled to over 700 destinations in Southeast Asia. To date GOASEAN’s programmes are broadcasted in over 80 countries across four (4) continents, and has been honoured with a total of 18 international awards for its original series like The Eco Traveller and Go Fast or Go Home as well as its website.

The collaboration with DNAP together with the partnerships with tontonMalaysia’s first and largest homegrown video streaming service, and dimsum, a Malaysian subscription-based video-on-demand (VOD) service, secured earlier this year are all part of GOASEAN’s extensive expansion plan to extend their reach. GOASEAN has been tasked by the ASEAN Secretariat to promote travel and tourism in the region to a wider audience in conjunction with the Visit ASEAN@50 Celebrations.


GOASEAN is the world’s first ASEAN travel initiative to promote Southeast Asia as a single tourism destination, featuring key areas such as community-based tourism, culture, heritage, entertainment and business. A brainchild of Malaysia’s Prime Minister, YAB Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Najib Abdul Razak to commemorate Malaysia as the Chair of ASEAN in 2015, Malaysia spearheaded the GOASEAN initiative to promote travel and spur economic growth within the region.

As partners of ASEAN@50, a campaign celebrating 50 years of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nation), GOASEAN is entering the fast growing over the top (OTT) space with tonton and dimsum as part of an extensive expansion plan to broaden their reach to wider audience.

GOASEAN original series broadcast schedule on Discovery Asia (All times are in SGT):

  • Go Fast or Go Home every Monday at 9.00 pm (SEA) and 8.00pm (BKK/JKT)

China Finds New “Marco Polo’s” to Tell Its Story

It’s been almost a millennium since Marco Polo’s epic journey to China, which marks the very first voyage of Chinese treasures and spirits abroad led by a person from the West. Now that the old eastern kingdom has regrown into a vibrant modern country, along with its awakening in the economic and political arena, its desire to be better understood internationally is stronger.

A program called “I’m in China” has recently taken place, which is an unprecedented approach to delivering the Chinese stories. It invites people from outside of China to experience unique jobs and participate in activities that one can find only in China.

A competition named Global Recruitment kicked off on 31st July to select who gets to be the new “Marco Polo“. More than ten thousand photos and articles were submitted by over six thousand applicants worldwide, which has earned tremendous web views, likes and shares.

Pinar, a journalism student from Turkey, is among the enthusiastic applicants. “Imagining myself not only being able to travel around China, but also learn to be a Chinese through vocational training experience, as well as a TV presenter, I couldn’t wait to sign up.”

Ko Hawhun from South Korea, after a day job as a rainforest ranger in Sanya, China’s southernmost city, says the experience enriched his knowledge in botany, more importantly helping him understand the effort that the local government and staff has to put into forest protection.

Like many young Chinese who study abroad, Pinar and Ko Hawhun represent the new generation who are interested in China  they can become the new “Marco Polo“s. Since China’s Open Policy started nearly 40 years ago, the link between China and the rest of the world has been strengthened. “I’m in China” program is yet another creative effort to show the nation’s good will.

The documented weekly series of the program “My Chinese Working Day” premiers on Mango TV, and posts on major social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

For those who did not get in for the first season, the Global Recruitment will re-open for entries at the end of October. Stay tuned for more details on social media.

Meituan-Dianping Bridges the Gap between Digital Advertising and Offline Experience with the First Fully-Integrated Online and Offline Programmatic Marketing Platform

Meituan-Dianping, China’s largest service-focused e-commerce platform, announced the launch of its “Co-Line Marketing”, an integrated online and offline marketing platform. This game-changing marketing technology provides merchants and brands with unprecedented value propositions that enable them to access a tailored consumer base. Co-Line Marketing will help drive the most diversified merchant ecosystem in China.

Through programmatic advertising and location-based service (LBS) technologies, the Co-Line Marketing platform automatically establishes one-of-a-kind geo-localized consumer profiles to help merchants precisely reach their target customers across Meituan-Dianping’s 260 million annual active buying customers.

In contrast to other e-commerce platforms, Co-Line Marketing enables merchants to look beyond people’s online habits and understand their offline behavior as well, painting an accurate and complete portrait of user behavior around the clock. The platform enables merchants and brands to go past the online marketing loop (online advertising enabling online purchases) and demonstrates how online advertising can lead to offline experiences. For the first time, merchants and brands are provided with a truly integrated online and offline marketing offering that can significantly drive return on investment. Consumers will also benefit from an enhanced user experience through programmatic recommendations and an easy one-click application to seamlessly switch between verticals.

The marketing tool is easily accessible to merchants and brands through a simple and user-friendly interface. The platform helps them accurately pinpoint local nearby customers, with access to big data gathered from all of Meituan-Dianping’s verticals, based on people’s local lifestyles and geo-location.

“We help businesses effectively implement an integrated marketing strategy leveraging our resources to target the right consumers and convert advertising to local experiences to purchases,” said Mr. Chuan Zhang, Senior Vice President of Meituan-Dianping and President of its Lifestyle & Entertainment (previously “In-Store Others”) Business Group. “This is the most efficient marketing technology that finally allows merchants and brands to benefit from the digital revolution. With both our dining service matrix and lifestyle & entertainment services matrix, we are delivering more diverse value propositions for the services industry and facilitating the transformation of businesses into a seamlessly unified online and offline model.”

As one example, HQ Education, an accounting education company based in Shanghai, started utilizing Meituan-Dianping’s platform in 2017 and its customer conversion rate reached 39%, considerably higher than any other platforms. For brands, it helps direct users toward various offline purchases in different real-life scenarios. Harbin Beer, for example, is able to locate beer lovers and engage with them directly with promotions tailored to their lifestyles and preferences, capturing activities under numerous situations, such as recommending nearby “Harbin Beer restaurants” with bonuses such as first beer free or a buy three get one free package when ordering food or placing delivery orders, presenting drinks packages when booking karaoke (KTV) rooms, etc. In addition, brands can accurately reach out to their target customers at reduced cost. belVita Breakfast Biscuit, for instance, utilized Meituan-Dianping’s platform to launch a sampling campaign in Beijing and Shanghai, leveraging its extensive restaurant database to identify 200 coffee shops and stores that are popular among the desired breakfast crowd. To receive free belVita samples, customers were invited to scan a special QR code and complete a survey. Data analysis would be used for future planning and marketing. By partnering with Meituan-Dianping, the cost of belVita’s sampling event was reduced by 75%.

The new offering provides brands and merchants – from spas to wedding planners, KTV, education centers, in addition to restaurants – a unique platform leveraging cross-vertical integration and further consolidates Meituan-Dianping’s Lifestyle & Entertainment Business Group by creating a powerful ecosystem mutually beneficial to consumers and merchants. More than a marketing tool, Co-Line Marketing is expected to be a key driver of the Company’s next development phase. Covering 33 million POI today, Meituan-Dianping expects to significantly increase its outreach in the next couple of years.

Meituan-Dianping’s Lifestyle & Entertainment Business Group is one of the Company’s four pillars along with On-demand Delivery, In-Store Dining, and Travel & Leisure. Lifestyle & Entertainment gathers services across six business lines: Leisure & Entertainment, Beauty, Family, Wedding Services, Home Decoration, and Education & Training. Meituan-Dianping is the only platform that offers one-stop daily life services for individuals and families covering their entire lifestyle needs, while helping local businesses thrive through online and offline integration. Consumers are able to place orders and reserve services according to individuals’ preferences. The Company is an undisputed market leader in all its verticals, e.g. 90% of online KTV reservations are made through Meituan-Dianping’s platform.

About Meituan-Dianping

Meituan-Dianping is China’s largest service-focused e-commerce platform, connecting more than 260 million young annual active buying consumers with more than three million annual active local merchants across the whole China, from tier one cities to minority counties, processing 20 million orders on a single day.

Under its “Eat Better, Live Better” mission, the Company offers a one-stop daily life services platform aiming to improve overall way of life for consumers through its dominant leadership in more than 200 service and product categories.

The new payment system is live on more than 100 buses. Semarang RTB has six corridors that can carry nine million bus passengers annually.

EXPO 2017 Greets its 3 Millionth Visitor

Yuri Shurygin, a 38-year-old Russian entrepreneur, is the 3 millionth visitor of the International Specialized Exhibition Astana EXPO 2017.

Yuri Shurygin, CEO of the Association of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, came to Kazakhstanfrom Moscow on a business trip as part of the Eurasian Week International forum, which was held in Astana on August 24-26.

According to the special guest of the EXPO 2017, despite the busy schedule, he found time to see the main tourist site of the city. The first object he visited at EXPO 2017 was the Nur Alem – the national pavilion of Kazakhstan. Yuri admitted that he had not yet visited the Russian pavilion. The guest of honor expressed the wish that an exhibition like this would be held in his motherland as well.

“I liked the Kazakhstani pavilion. Now I need to visit the Russian one. Of course, we would like to see an event of such a scale to take place in the Urals. There is a possibility that EXPO will take place in Yekaterinburg in 2025,” the special guest shared.

Akhmetzhan Yessimov, chairman of the JSC “NC “Astana EXPO 2017”, personally congratulated the jubilee visitor and gave him memorable gifts.

“We are greeting our 3 millionth guest today. We are glad that our expectations of the planned target – 2 million visitors – have been justified. The dynamics of EXPO 2017 attendance is continuing to grow every day. 15% of visitors are foreigners, most of whom are our neighbors, citizens of the Russian Federation,” said Yessimov.

In his speech, the head of the national company also noted that, on August 24, in the National Pavilion Nur Alem, the main object of EXPO 2017, the millionth visitor was recorded. Since the Exhibition opened, the Nur Alem has been the most visited of the objects at EXPO 2017. The pavilion is visited by 10,000 to 28,000 people every day.

The millionth guest of the EXPO 2017 was recorded on July 11. It was Guljikhan Zhanabergenova, a 27-year old resident of Astana. The 2 millionth visitor of the EXPO 2017 was Gaisa Zhumaliyev, a 34-year-old businessman from Uralsk.

Continental To Acquire New Indonesian Property Interest

Continental Energy Corporation (OTCQB: CPPXF) (the “Company“) today announced that it has entered into a preliminary private placement agreement with PT ALT GME Bungalun Kariorang (“AGBK”), a privately owned Indonesian company. AGBK owns and operates a 100% interest in a special Indonesian production sharing joint cooperation contract with state-owned PT Pertamina EP known as a “KSO“. The KSO has a term of 20 years to May 2036 and provides exclusive rights to conduct oil and gas exploration, exploitation, and production operations within an onshore area of 390,000 acres located on the east coast of Borneo island, named the “BK Block“.

By taking up a new-issue private placement of AGBK’s authorized share capital, the Company shall earn a 25% shareholding stake in AGBK, and shall also acquire exclusive rights from AGBK to off-take 100% of all future crude oil and natural gas produced by AGBK from the BK Block. Privately owned Indonesian company PT-ALT shall retain a 75% controlling interest stake in AGBK.

In accordance with the provisions of its KSO, AGBK paid a US$ 1,000,000 signature bonus and committed to expend a firm commitment amount of US$ 15,000,000 on geological, geophysical, and drilling work in the BK Block during the first 3 KSO contract years ending in May 2019. The Company will invest a total of US$ 4,000,000 to fund its 25% share of the bonus and of the firm commitment, to earn both its stake in AGBK and its rights to offtake future BK Block petroleum production.

AGBK shall use the entire investment proceeds exclusively for performing work within the BK Block in accordance with approved annual budgets as provided for in the KSO and firm commitment. The US$ 4,000,000 investment shall be treated by AGBK as a non-interest bearing advance from a shareholder. The Company shall be entitled to full reimbursement of the investment directly from BK Block oil or gas production “cost recovery” proceeds in the manner provided for in the KSO.

Closing of the placement is subject to and conditional upon final terms, conditions, and provisions to be set forth in four separate “Definitive Agreements“; 1) a “Placement Agreement”, 2) a “Long Term Crude Oil Supply Agreement”, 3) a “Long Term Natural Gas Supply Agreement”, and 4) a “Shareholders Agreement”. Closing is also subject to the Company delivering the first US$ 500,000 of the investment within 60 days of signature of Definitive Agreements, and also to AGBK acquiring the appropriate government permits to qualify the investment and the Company’s 25% AGBK shares stake as a foreign direct investment and shareholding.

The placement and the Definitive Agreements are being negotiated on an arms-length basis notwithstanding the fact that a non-executive director of the Company is also the sole Director and CEO of AGBK. The director has no beneficial shares ownership in AGBK or in PT-ALT, the controlling holder of 75% of AGBK’s shares. No fees of any kind are being paid to the director or to any third party intermediaries with regard to this transaction.

The BK Block is located in the Kutai Timur Regency of East Kalimantan ProvinceIndonesia on the northwest flank of the Kutai Basin, the prolific oil and gas producing geological region surrounding the Mahakam Delta. Notable oil producing companies in the Kutai include Chevron, Total, Vico (formerly HuffCo), and Pertamina. The BK Block does not currently produce oil on a commercial basis, but the Block includes over 100 oil wells drilled on oil fields that were producing over 2,000 BOPD oil before World War II. Most of the wells were sabotaged or destroyed during the war and commercial production was never restored. A few of the old wellbores that survived are still capable of flowing oil at the surface which is now collected and used by local residents. In addition to exploration and exploitation drilling rights, the KSO gives AGBK the rights to redevelop and restore these old fields to production.

AGBK’s Director and CEO, Karsani Aulia said of the placement, “AGBK welcomes Continental as a new partner to the BK Block. We are confident our combined upstream operating experience and technical expertise will restore oil and gas production from the BK Block in the short term future. The block is known to produce a sweet 33o API gravity crude. This coupled with the highly prospective geological setting and the presence of never developed 1970’s gas discoveries make the BK Block a very low drilling risk area. With the BK Block as our upstream platform we intend to pioneer and develop our shared vision with Continental of combining an upstream producing oil and gas property with a downstream small-scale refinery. This will reduce crude oil transport costs and enable us to efficiently supply much needed diesel and other motor fuels for plant gate sale to under supplied and growing local markets throughout the rapidly developing province of East Kalimantan.

The Company’s CEO, Rich McAdoo stated, “In August 2016, the Indonesian government opened up the domestic crude oil refining and refined fuel distribution businesses to private sector companies allowing them to build, own and operate what the new regulation defines as “Small Scale Refineries” having a maximum capacity of 20,000 barrels per day. The government’s intent with the new regulation is two-fold: 1) reduce crude oil transport costs from smaller, marginal, or declining fields and thereby incentivize the oil producers to increase production; and 2) provide much needed motor and marine fuels to the local regions surrounding the refinery and thereby reduce refined products imports and delivery costs. Continental’s long history in operating upstream in Indonesiaputs us in the ideal position to capitalize on this new downstream business opportunity. Our partnership with AGBK represents a first step for our Company in that direction. The long term offtake agreements with AGBK for any crude oil and natural gas we may find and produce will provide feedstocks for our initial small scale refinery.”

Robert V. Rudman, CPA

SOURCE MarketsandMarkets to build overseas service teams, the official website of the largest commodity market in the world, launched a plan earlier this month to recruit overseas service representatives in an effort to improve its service for purchasers abroad. These representatives will be dedicated to facilitating online purchases of overseas purchasers through by effectively informing suppliers on the website based on overseas demand. The recruitment will first take place in Southeast Asian cities and regions with developed commerce and trade as pilot programs.

It is known that most overseas purchasers at are adept at large-quantity purchase which is much more demanding in terms of quality, price, delivery and payment of goods, as well as the qualification and integrity of suppliers. Therefore what they care about most is how to find the befitting suppliers.

To connect purchasers abroad with Yiwu suppliers more effectively, initiated the “Overseas Cooperation” program in 2014 which has reached out to over 10 countries and regions abroad. As for the recruitment underway, 10 service representatives are planned to be recruited from 10 Southeast Asian regions where commerce and trade are intensive. Each region will be staffed with a service representative who will in principle be recruited based on recommendations from Yiwugou’s partners of the “Overseas Cooperation” program. To better serve as a bridge between overseas purchasers and Yiwugou suppliers, the applicants are required to be familiar with local market conditions, capable of reading and speaking Chinese, and able to have a common sense about e-commerce and online shopping.

Representatives will be employed on a part-time basis, earning a certain amount of salary, plus a certain proportion of commission on the purchase amount completed through thanks to their involvement. Correspondingly, has the right to oversee and evaluate their performance.

According to the recruitment director, the recruitment attempts to improve the website’s service and operation so as to better connect global purchasers with the Yiwu commodity market. Further recruitment plans targeting more overseas countries can be expected if the plan underway proves to be successful.

Partners both at home and abroad who recommend applicants or apply for the post as an overseas service representative will be well received. For detailed information in this regard, please contact the recruitment director via email:

Magic xpi Integration Platform Receives Independent Recommendation from Ovum in Latest ‘On the Radar’ Report

Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of software platforms for enterprise mobilitycloud applications, and business integration, announced today that Ovum, a leading analyst firm, has recognized Magic as a well-positioned integration platform (middleware) provider in the latest Ovum “On the Radar” report. Written by Saurabh Sharma, Principal Analyst at Ovum, the report states that the solution includes built-in connectors for a variety of industry-leading enterprise applications, and a wide range of standard IT protocols and standards.

Magic’s drag-and-drop approach to data mapping shortens the time required to integrate applications and data sources in an organization or on the cloud, allowing both skilled integrators and non-developers to implement integration processes. The organizations using the solution are able to go live within only three weeks on average.

The report states that the Magic solution is a good option for small-and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) because the platform is code-free, is compatible with the market’s leading technologies, and shortens project completion times.

“Magic xpi Integration Platform is a good option for organizations in need of a scalable approach to on-premises, cloud, mobile, and IoT application integration that does not require highly skilled or specialized developers,” Saurabh Sharma wrote in the report. “While its “ease-of-use” and simplified user experience (UX) are aligned with the requirements of small-and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), Magic xpi Integration Platform is also an end-to-end solution for enterprise-scale integration initiatives. Magic Software has expanded the IoT application integration capabilities of its Magic xpi Integration Platform, and is working on offering a full-fledged integration PaaS (iPaaS) solution.”

Regentis Biomaterials Receives European CE Mark Approval for GelrinC

Regentis Biomaterials Ltd., a privately held company developing proprietary hydrogels for tissue regeneration, announced today it has received European CE mark approval for its GelrinC® biodegradable implant. The approval covers GelrinC manufactured using denatured human fibrinogen and expands upon the existing CE mark for a version containing denatured bovine-sourced fibrinogen. This latest approval enables Regentis to begin accessing new global markets, and helping more patients suffering from damaged articular knee cartilage.

“Since a CE mark is recognized internationally, this key approval opens the door to making the product available in many other territories,” said Regentis Biomaterial CEO Alastair Clemow, Ph.D.

GelrinC is designed to quickly and easily treat articular knee cartilage defects, both chondral and osteochondral. With a minimally invasive procedure, surgeons apply GelrinC into lesions as a liquid allowing it to fill any size and shape of defect. After a short exposure to ultra-violet light, GelrinC is converted into a solid implant which gradually degrades in a controlled manner. Over time, the implant is replaced with newly formed cartilage tissue that is similar to native cartilage, and fits within the surrounding cartilage and underlying bone.

A long-term European clinical study of GelrinC, focusing on patients with damaged articular knee cartilage, demonstrated sustained relief of symptoms with most patients regaining pain-free knees. MRI imaging further revealed that the regenerated cartilage had properties that were comparable to natural cartilage. Regentis is currently conducting an FDA-approved Phase III pivotal multi-site clinical trial on GelrinC in the U.S. and Europe to support a PMA application, a key step to having the product approved for patients in the U.S.

“The data from our European clinical study indicates that GelrinC provides surgeons with an effective one-step treatment. GelrinC is an off-the-shelf product that can be used at any time during surgery when a lesion is identified without the need for pre-planning or additional surgeries,” said Dr. Clemow. “This makes GelrinC an attractive treatment option that is as simple to perform as microfracture with superior clinical outcomes. With a potential yearly market of more than 150,000 procedures in the U.S. alone, the opportunities for GelrinC as the primary treatment for articular knee cartilage repair are very exciting.”

GelrinC is an investigational device and not available for sale in the U.S.

FilSon Supplied High Flow Duplex Basket Filters to Rolling Mill Plant in China

FilSon Filters, a leading manufacturer of duplex filters, today begun supplying the Chinese rolling mill plants with high flow duplex basket filters. So far, FilSon Filters has sold 20 pieces of duplex filters in two months to the Chinese clients, for oil filtration in hydraulic power units.

This new generation of duplex filters features the oversized steel housing with long-life filter element. With 6 filter elements in each of its strainer housings, these duplex basket filters have a high dirt holding capacity which ensures continuous operation.

“FilSon duplex strainers with localizable levers for smooth and safe changeover, alongside 2-position, 6-way directional valves eliminate any possible downtime,” said Mrs. Kunvine Lee, FilSon Filters General Manager. “We have specifically designed these duplex basket strainers for  pipeline systems with a pressure of 1.6Mpa.”

The duplex basket strainers are suitable for hydraulic and lube systems in the rolling mill plants. It provide a simple and cost effective way to separate particle impurities from a variety of fluids and maximize your uptime.

Moreover, to reduce hydraulic system breakdown and premature component failure, the duplex filters are fitted with a 0.4Mpa bypass valve and a clogging indicator. Therefore, system operators can tell when to change the filter element.

This is a high flow rate accessory, whose design and filter elements perfectly fit a wide range of applications in hydraulic systems. Its filtration varies from 3 to 1000μm with a flow rate of 1300 to 15000 liters/minute.

To further reduce any possible downtime, FilSon Filters duplex basket strainers have covers that are easy to open. Easy access for cartridge removal with no special tools required. A pressure relief valve and strategically positioned lever handle allow for a smooth transition and can prevent cavitation of components, ensuring system fluids stay clean.

Also, the side dirt drain and clean side drain, ensure faster cleaning of filter, while the O-rings prevent possible leakage.

FilSon Filter designs both standard and custom duplex basket filters for a range of rolling mill plant application requirements.
