Versus what we know about the Texas Permian - looks to be two different companies:

Permian Energy is an independent oil and gas service and development company that is building long-term growth by providing gas compression and enhanced oil and gas recovery solutions to the energy industry. Permian Energy is leading in the application of innovative technology designed to significantly improve the industry's production and reserve base, including: techniques for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), gas lift compression, and general surface compression for gathering and processing systems.
Permian Energy provides a unique gas compressor that provides solutions for surface and downhole gas compression as well as for a tool for Enhanced Oil Recovery This technology rivals all conventional machines and techniques in both arenas at a cost per unit and a cost per barrel of recovered hydrocarbon.
The technology known as the Hydraulic Gas Compressor (HGC) has been developed over the past 8 years with over 6000 hours of actual testing and run time. The commercialization of the HGC is now a reality. The multi-use, multi-dimensional machine is ready to for rigorous applications in the oil and gas industry.
Permian Energy has been working with the HGC technology for more than three years and itself has applied the unit for gas lift, thermal recovery of heavy oil, and surface compression. Permian Energy currently is focusing its business development in the Permian Basin of West Texas and eastern New Mexico.

THIS PERMIAN ENERGY ABOVE HAS AN AGREEMENT WITH PLATINA BELOW

www.secinfo.com/d11gH9.zs.9.htm

 

On March 11, 2005, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Permian Energy Services, L.P. ("Permian L.P."), a Texas limited partnership, whereby the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Permian Energy International ("Permian International"), a Nevada corporation formed on March 30, 2005, acquired on April 6, 2005 certain marketing, distribution and license rights to various patented thermal pulse units ("TPU") to the oil and gas industry for enhanced oil recovery. The assets that were purchased consist primarily of the assignment to Permian International of (i) an exclusive marketing agreement between Permian L.P. and Bi-Comp, L.L.C., (ii) a joint venture agreement between Permian L.P. and Daystar Oil and Gas Corporation,
(iii) a letter agreement between Permian L.P. and Wyoming Energy Corporation, and (iv) a verbal licensing use and distribution agreement between Permian L.P. and Penney Resources, LLC regarding the "Penney Pump." In addition, Permian L.P. transferred to the Company intellectual property regarding TPU applications for oil recovery from wells and for acid gas re-injection.

The Company's principal place of business is 4255 South Bannock Street, Englewood, CO 80110.

BUSINESS

Platina Energy Group Inc. through its wholly owned subsidiary Permian Energy International (collectively, the "Company") has acquired the marketing and distribution rights, on an exclusive and non-exclusive basis, to a unique "enhanced recovery solution" that stimulates and recovers oil and gas from stripper (low volume) wells at a fraction of the cost of other methodologies available in the industry today.

The Company's enhanced recovery solution through its marketing and distribution agreements utilizes "Hydraulic Gas Compressor" (HGC) technology in a "Thermal Pulse Unit" (TPU) application. The TPU incorporates a patented hydraulically driven compressor technology, which creates 350F+ heat and 1,500+psi pressures for utilization in well cleanup, stimulation and production. The TPU has various configurations and attributes that replace conventional methodologies for day-to-day operations of oil and gas production. The TPU can be sized to fit small to large applications and can be powered by diesel, natural gas, propane or electricity. Management of the Company believes that the TPU technology will compete successfully with all current stimulation and recovery methodology on the basis of both cost effectiveness and long term results.

This is a PDF file and always have trouble with Them but Please go to the link to Pages 26 and 27.....Looks Very Interesting...This is only part of the article.

Please forgive Me for not relaying this very well...I'm getting really tired and My eyes have about had it for the night..    







http://www.upstreamonline.com/multimedia/archive/00026/ONSwed_26379a.pdf.


The SelecT group of half a dozen proponents currently pushingthe compressed natural gas (cnG) conceptasaviablebusinessmodel for gas distribution have yet to achieve that much hoped for, but so far elusive, maiden contract for one of their number.however, there is talk of a breakthrough deal within months and a number of these teams are understood to be negotiating promising projects. Perhaps the most buoyant among them is calgary-based company Sea nG, the outfit with the longest pedigree, tracing its roots back to the coselle concept it started evolving 10 years ago in its original incarnation as cran and Stenning. late last month Sea nG revealed that it has gone as far as inaugurating the construction site that it will use to build the giant coils of pipe that are at the heart of the coselle concept. it has settled on Gunsan of South Korea to construct the coselles. “we spent a long time finding the optimum location,” says chief executive Dave Stenning, “and we have finally chosen this site on the west coast about two and a half hour’s drive south of Seoul, allowing good access to chinese and Korean yards.” as for construction of the hull for a cnG vessel: “we have a number of possibilities, includ-ing a small Korean shipyard that is holding a slot open for us.“So we really do have all of our ducks in line for a first com-mercial contract and we are get-ting very close to a project,” says Stenning. “we are hoping that we could sign a deal in the next two or three months.” The caribbean and Mediterra-nean are where Sea nG appears to have its most promising pros-pects. in particular, although the company is making no official comment, Sea nG is understood to be in the running for a project in the caribbean that, if it gets off the ground, could well be the one that starts the cnG ball roll-ing. This is a proposal to carry gas from colombia to markets in that region. as Upstream noted last month, canadian producer Pacific rubi-ales energy is looking into the feasibility of offering volumes of gas from its la cresciente field in north-west colombia to smaller regional consumers such as Jamaica, Panama, the Dominican republic, aruba and curazao. Typically, this type of cus-tomer does not have the market or industrial capacity to invest in lnG imports.“we are focusing on cnG as opposed to lnG, due mainly to the size of the potential market and the travelling distance,” edu-ardo lima, Pacific rubiale’s vice president for projects develop-ment was reported as saying.Volumes in the range between 20 million and 50 million cubic feet of gas per day might be exported, said the company.This is exactly the sort of project that the cnG fraternity has been promoting as their niche. Says Stenning: “we have defined our sector as handling volumes of gas of no more than half a bil-lion cubic feet per day, and over a distance of no more than 2000 kilometres. we are not a billion cubic foot a day technology, nor one that is going to travel three or four thousand kilometres.” in fact, at present the main focus for the company falls far closer to the 100 million to 200 million cubic foot range than half a billion. he notes that the empha-sis in the cnG business is now changing from ‘stranded gas’ to ‘stranded markets’, for example allowing markets that are now burning heavy or light fuel oil, and are relatively nearby to large gas supplies, to access that gas in an economic fashion.There is also another dark horse in the background. This is the possibility of using cnG as a means of dealing with associated gas in a time of ever-more strin-gent legislation against flaring of gas.The gas storage coselle in the Sea nG design is essentially a coil of 17 kilometres of six-inch diam-eter steel pipe. when filled with gas at a pressure of 3200 psi it holds about 3 million cubic feet. The company has a range of ship sizes able to accommodate anything from six to 84 coselles. The smallest is essentially a barge. Then there are three ships - the c16 with 16 coselles, which is Sea NG chief executive DavidStenning (above) selectedGunsan, South Korea, as the yardwhere his company will build the Coselle carousels that are at theheart of its particular variation onthe theme of compressed naturalgas, here (main image) seenbeing loaded out into the hullGraphic/Photo: SEA NGOpportunity knocks for CNGColombian gas field looks strong candidate to give proponent Sea NGa first commercial contract for compressed natural gas developmentSea NG keeps it simple26ONS OFFICIAL SHOW DAILYWEDNESDAY, 27 AUGUST 2008 TECHTALKADRIAN COTTRILLStavangerTHE SEA NG design is one of the simplest of the various concepts for compressed natural gas transport being promoted by interested groups.Over the past 10 years it has evolved the Coselle, a large coil of pipe — typically 17 kilometres of six-inch diameter high-quality linepipe — wound into a cylindrical storage carousel and weighing about 500 tonnes in all. CNG concepts in general transport gas at a pressure that can range from about 1500 psi up to 4000 psi, and at a temperature between minus 40 Celsius and plus 30C.This gives a compression ratio of 250 to 350:1 compared with gas at atmospheric pressure. This is not as efficient as the 600:1 ratio of liquefied natural gas but it is a whole lot cheaper to achieve. In the Sea NG concept, the gas is at 3200 psi and a temperature around minus 15 degrees Celsius, ending up at a compression ratio of 285:1.Prior to loading, the natural gas requires minimal treatment.“It is telling that in the last year confidence in the technology has grown, and now the commercial aspects are receiving greater attention than the technical issues that once were the major focus,” said Michael Hanrahan of the Centre for Marine CNG.

He also noted that “the customer focus has shifted from integrated oil companies to national oil companies. “regional solutions continue to be the focus for this niche technology that complements LNg and pipelines for stranded gas monetisation at relatively low cost.“Capital costs are much less for a CNgsolution and it is scalable from river barges up to LNg size ships. However, its lower energy density than LNgmeans the economic supply distance has a theoretical upper limit of around 2000 nautical miles.” as for the providers of CNgtechnology, three of the six are Canadian: Sea Ng, Trans CNginternational, and Trans ocean gas. Two more are Norwegian: Knutsen and CeTech Marine. enerSea is from the US.Hanrahan provided thumbnail sketches of the six groups.Sea NG, in the form of its predecessor company Cran and Stenning of Calgary, was the first to apply pipeline concepts to shipping natural gas. Over the past 10 years it has evolved the Coselle, a large coil of pipe wound into a cylindrical storage carousel weighing about 500 tonnes. The Coselle ship design gained full classification approval for construction by ABS in September 2006, the same year that Sea NG partnered with Marubeni and TeeKay.EnerSea partnership includes Mitsui and Hyundai as proposed shipbuilder. Its Votrans system (above) stores gas at minus 30°C, an approach it claims compresses more gas into a given volume at approximately half the pressure of competitors. Lower pressure also allows thinner walled cylinders, which in turn reduces weight and cost. Offloading uses a chilled liquid fluid that is pumped in to displace the gas at constant pressure.CETech Marine was formed in August 2004 by Statoil, Teekay Shipping and Hoegh, and earlier development work had been pursued in a preliminary project since 2002. The company is keeping details of its technology under wraps.Trans Ocean Gas of Newfoundland(left) bases it approach around fibre reinforced plastic pressure vessels. These sit vertically in steel frames with connecting manifolds at top and bottom that allow removal of condensed natural gas liquids during a voyage. The company claims a weight only a third of steel’s for its pressure vessels, along with good resistance to corrosion and to temperatures as low as minus 80 degrees C. Trans CNG bases its system around lightweight composite pipe technology under licence from NCF Industries. It operates at ambient temperature and a pressure above 3000 psi. The company is a joint venture of TransCanada Pipelines and Overseas Shipholding Group. Knutsen OAS employs vertical cylinders for gas containment, claiming simplicity and robustness with an all-steel design operating at ambient temperature. Like most of the other proponents, it uses high pressure, in this case 4000 psi. Europipe and DNV have been contributors to the technology development and the former has been qualified by DNV as supplier of containment cylinders.already approved for construc-tion; the c25, which should receive that approval shortly; and the c84 farther into the future.“From a safety perspective the technical advantage is that we use coils of small diameter pipe rather than one large diameter vessel, says robert Dick, vice president of operations at Sea nG. The 10-hectare site at Gusan will allow the automated con-struction of coselles. Marine construction corpo-ration (Mcc), a wholly owned Korean subsidiary of Sea nG, anticipates the facility will be in full production of the containers by late 2009, allowing Sea nG to begin construction of its fleet of ships. “a coselle is just another 500-tonne block in the shipbuild-ing process that can be loaded into a hull in the same way as any other block during ship construc-tion, so it is all very straightfor-ward,” says Stenning.“The X70 pipe that we use has gone up 50% in price over the last 18 months but with Marubeni ito-chu Steel as a partner availability is not an issue.“we can have as much pipe as we need given a three-month order period. having been the first cnG group to receive full classification approval, Sea nG now has high hopes it will be the first to win a commercial contract.

Venezuela Signs Engineering Accords for Gas Project
by Raul Gallegos    Dow Jones Newswires
Friday, March 06, 2009
CARACAS (Dow Jones)
Petroleos de Venezuela SA, PdVSA, signed new agreements Friday with oil companies from Europe, Asia and the U.S. for the engineering phase of the Delta Caribe natural gas project.

The two operating deals signed mark another stage in the process of developing two trains of a large LNG venture in Eastern Venezuela that is still in its initial stages.

Portugal's Galp Energia SGPS SA (GALP.LB), the U.S.'s Chevron Corp. (CVX), Argentina's Energia Argentina SA, and Japan's Mitsui & Co. (8031.TO) together signed deals with PdVSA for the engineering stage of train one and train two of the LNG venture.

"In these deals these companies become responsible for the engineering phase that represents a $200 million investment," Eulogio Del Pino, a PdVSA board member said at a the signing ceremony.

Venezuela's oil industry authorities selected the partners last September and signed initial accords to get the Delta Caribe venture in motion.

The first train is made up of a gas pipeline connecting the the offshore block two of the Deltana platform to a liquefaction plant known CIGMA, that is now under construction. Train one requires an overall investment of $6.4 billion, according to PdVSA figures.

Train two would connect the plant to the Mariscal Sucre offshore gas project controlled entirely by PdVSA. Investment for this train would require $5.2 billion to develop.

The Andean country claims it has proven natural gas reserves of 180 trillion cubic feet, and through a series of projects, hopes to secure an additional 166 trillion cubic feet, half of that located in off-shore fields.

President Hugo Chavez made it clear that Venezuela initially would seek to supply the natural gas needs of the local economy, and would only export whatever is left over. Some companies have in the past expressed reservations about the government's insistence on selling the natural gas locally before looking to the export market.

Here's a thought - let's narrow the scope of our research for a bit.  Just because this could be a fit - and would definitely save us some time.

So let's see if we can either confirm a connection - or rule it out.

??????


IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN MARAVEN S.A. AND MERMIS/SCHAEFER

Mr. Oduber said his country had its own central banking system, Parliamentary form of governance and an independent judiciary. Aruban island nation, situated off the coast of Venezuela in South America, was engaged in its coastal waters for offshore drilling for oil and was hopeful of finding rich deposits as in Venezuela and Columbia.

http://www.zoominfo.com/people/Neray_Robin_373632.aspx

Control over the state-owned oil company, PDVSA, has been in dispute in Venezuela, perhaps ever since the company was first nationalized in 1976. When PDVSA was first nationalized, the transnational corporations’ dependencies were turned into fourteen Venezuelan companies, which corresponded with the fourteen main transnational oil companies that did business in Venezuela.[12] The entire management had years earlier already been Venezuelan and this management did not change with nationalization. For example, the former president of Shell Venezuela was the same as the new president of Maraven, the newly nationalized Shell Venezuela.
http://www.venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/74

Mermis did a deal with a Venezuelan company and Sent it to the company he went with after he left Superior. Could that company have been Maravan above ???

If he did one deal that he sent to Kaplan - did he do other deals that he kept At Superior?  Or kicked one over to Legacy?


04/2007
According to CW 1 (a Confidential Witness in the Class Action Lawsuit):  “…around the time of the IPO, Mermis was trying to attain a project out of Venezuela.  Rather than securing that work for Superior, Mermis instead sent the project to Kaplan Industry - a Company he joined after the bankruptcy.” [page  25]

FROM TIMELINE Reply #38  KTF

Jim Mermis left Superior Offshore for Kaplan Industry...

Has a long history of working with Government and National Oil & Gas Company, PDVSA, in Venezuela. http://kaplanindustry.com/http://scaredmonkeys.net/index.php?topic=4838.msg794330#msg794330

IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN SCHAEFER/MERMIS AND OCCIDENTAL?

Occidental (petroleum) of Aruba

ARUBA

After reports in 1987 that indicated that the Government of Aruba and the Caribbean Development & Commerce Co. had agreed to reopen the former Exxon Corp. Lago refinery, in January 1988, Aruba and Exxon signed an agreement to dismantle the refinery. The dismantling, according to reports, was to
begin by September 30 and would be completed by 1994. The powerplant and other installations of interest to the Government were to be left in place.
The agreement relieved Exxon of its obligation to return the property to its original condition. Other issues such as back taxes and environmental damage were not resolved. Exxon expressed interest in using some of the facilities for an oil transshipment operation.

Occidental Petroleum Corp. ' s subsidiary, Occidental International Exploration
& Production Co. obtained a production-sharing contract with Aruba
for the 173,000-acre Block II.
Occidental International, with an 80% interest
in the venture, committed itself under contract to drill an exploration well
on the offshore block within 18 months. According to Occidental Petroleum
Corp.'s annual report, the company had actively pursued exploration in this
area since 1981.

I have not been able to do much today as other things had to be addressed here, but I'll try again later, hopefully.  These possible connections are tricky to find.  I did find one last night, I beleive the COO of Deepocean, name is/was Perry Balls previously worked for Geolab.   

I forgot to look back to see where I found that CalDive contract.  Not sure if it's the same link Jen just posted, or not.   


She said Perry Balls.

Heh heh heh.

 


    

Perry Balls (born 1961), Regional Manager, UK

Is Jim Mermis related to Mermis Engineering, Inc. in Houston?

Also, do you think Kenneth Mermis is related....seems to be dealing with similar clients.  See partial list of clients on this site.

Here's a thought - let's narrow the scope of our research for a bit.  Just because this could be a fit - and would definitely save us some time.

So let's see if we can either confirm a connection - or rule it out.

??????


IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN MARAVEN S.A. AND MERMIS/SCHAEFER

Mr. Oduber said his country had its own central banking system, Parliamentary form of governance and an independent judiciary. Aruban island nation, situated off the coast of Venezuela in South America, was engaged in its coastal waters for offshore drilling for oil and was hopeful of finding rich deposits as in Venezuela and Columbia.

http://www.zoominfo.com/people/Neray_Robin_373632.aspx

Control over the state-owned oil company, PDVSA, has been in dispute in Venezuela, perhaps ever since the company was first nationalized in 1976. When PDVSA was first nationalized, the transnational corporations’ dependencies were turned into fourteen Venezuelan companies, which corresponded with the fourteen main transnational oil companies that did business in Venezuela.[12] The entire management had years earlier already been Venezuelan and this management did not change with nationalization. For example, the former president of Shell Venezuela was the same as the new president of Maraven, the newly nationalized Shell Venezuela.
http://www.venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/74

Mermis did a deal with a Venezuelan company and Sent it to the company he went with after he left Superior. Could that company have been Maravan above ???

If he did one deal that he sent to Kaplan - did he do other deals that he kept At Superior?  Or kicked one over to Legacy?


04/2007
According to CW 1 (a Confidential Witness in the Class Action Lawsuit):  “…around the time of the IPO, Mermis was trying to attain a project out of Venezuela.  Rather than securing that work for Superior, Mermis instead sent the project to Kaplan Industry - a Company he joined after the bankruptcy.” [page  25]

FROM TIMELINE Reply #38  KTF

Jim Mermis left Superior Offshore for Kaplan Industry...

Has a long history of working with Government and National Oil & Gas Company, PDVSA, in Venezuela. http://kaplanindustry.com/http://scaredmonkeys.net/index.php?topic=4838.msg794330#msg794330

IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN SCHAEFER/MERMIS AND OCCIDENTAL?

Occidental (petroleum) of Aruba

ARUBA

After reports in 1987 that indicated that the Government of Aruba and the Caribbean Development & Commerce Co. had agreed to reopen the former Exxon Corp. Lago refinery, in January 1988, Aruba and Exxon signed an agreement to dismantle the refinery. The dismantling, according to reports, was to
begin by September 30 and would be completed by 1994. The powerplant and other installations of interest to the Government were to be left in place.
The agreement relieved Exxon of its obligation to return the property to its original condition. Other issues such as back taxes and environmental damage were not resolved. Exxon expressed interest in using some of the facilities for an oil transshipment operation.

Occidental Petroleum Corp. ' s subsidiary, Occidental International Exploration
& Production Co. obtained a production-sharing contract with Aruba
for the 173,000-acre Block II.
Occidental International, with an 80% interest
in the venture, committed itself under contract to drill an exploration well
on the offshore block within 18 months. According to Occidental Petroleum
Corp.'s annual report, the company had actively pursued exploration in this
area since 1981.

LEAD CONTRACTORS
A huge number of companies have been involved in installing the project. The lead contract for the upgrader facility was awarded to the Contrina consortium, comprising Brown & Root and Parsons of the USA, French companies Technip and Projecta and DIT-Harris of Venezuela. Alstom supplied gas turbines to power the pumps which send the oil along the pipeline to the upgrader. The main control systems for the project were supplied by Honeywell. The pipeline from Zuata to Jose was laid by Wilbros. Among the lesser contracts, Accenture, which was formerly known as Andersen Consulting, provided enterprise software.

COMPANY
Conoco and Maraven are the two partners in the joint venture. They have equal shares of the equity. Maraven is a subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela S.A (PDVSA).
