1.1 Introduction Food sector takes its source from the beginning of the human life so it has an agelong past, and it keeps its existance. The acceleration of food consumption rises in connection with the growing world population and that threats the adricultural activities and the foodstuff potentials. To get one step forward in this market; while the searches for new technologies and new methods have been developed to increase the productivity, some of them are trying to be seperated from this competition by different alternatives like organic agriculture. With the fluctuation in the market, especially in raw materials the challenge is getting tougher. One of these raw materials are the oilseeds that contains sunflower, corn, olive, soybean. In vegetable oil business even the variations don’t be observed, the comsumption is growing up. In the world market the vegetable oils are seperated into three groups as olive and nut, sunflower and corn, and cotton. The agriculture characteristics and production types change from one country to another. For example in USA and Italy soybean is the major vegetable oil but in Turkey and Spain sunflower takes the first place. Besides; USA, Brasil and China are leading the oilseed production in all over the world.

In Turkey the oils that has produced are mostly from the sunflower(nearly 50%). Nearly 35% of the vegetable oils are produced from the cottonseed and remains are produced from the olives and the others. But in the recent years the production quantities in oil seeds has been decreasing and in 2007 it has declined 23,6 % while it is expected to be nearly 854000 tons. In this decline, the price parity and the competition between sunflower and wheat has been effective. On the other hand the oil consumption especially the sunflower oil consumption is increasing…...

...shampoos, toothpaste, shaving products, etc and finally Food and Beverages as snacks, processed foods, tea, coffee, edible oils, soft drinks etc. The FMCG sector in India is at present, the fourth largest sector with a total market size. Global leaders in the FMCG segment are Nestlé, ITC, Hindustan Unilever Limited, Reckitt Benckiser, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, Carlsberg, Kleenex, General Mills, Pepsi, Gillette etc. This sector is characterized by strong MNC presence and a well established distribution network. In India the easy availability of raw materials as well as cheap labour makes it an ideal destination for this sector. There is also intense competition between the organised and unorganised segments and the fight to keep operational costs low. A look at some factors that will drive growth in this sector: * Increasing rate of urbanization, expected to see major growth in coming years. * Rise in disposable incomes, resulting in premium brands having faster growth and deeper penetration. * Innovative and stronger channels of distribution to the rural segment, leading to deeper penetration into this segment. * Increase in rural non-agricultural income and benefits from government welfare programmes. * Investment in stock markets of FMCG companies, which are expected to grow constantly. Some of the challenges this sector is likely to face are: * Increasing rate of inflation, which is likely to lead to higher cost of raw......

Oil and Gas

...Introduction Oil and gas industry of Kazakhstan is the largest and most dynamic industry, which provides a stable increase in crude oil and natural gas. In the Kazakhstan sector of the Caspian Sea, there is continuing evaluation of public oil and gas fields with large reserves of hydrocarbons. Potential hydrocarbon of the Republic of Kazakhstan is estimated sufficiently significant in the total world reserves. Kazakhstan holds big hydrocarbon reserves, including potentially the second largest oil reserves in the world (US Energy Information Administration). According to official data from the Ministry of Oil and Gas of Republic of Kazakhstan, confirmed hydrocarbon reserves, both onshore and offshore, are estimated to be 4.8 billion tons or more than 35 billion barrels for 2012. Kazakhstan possesses unique geographical features that lead the country’s oil and gas cluster to be spread throughout the entire country, instead of one specific geographical area. Around 70% of Kazakhstan’s oil and gas reserves, both onshore and offshore, are concentrated in Western Kazakhstan around the city of Atyrau. Some oil reserves are also located in Southern Kazakhstan but the prospects for new discoveries there are not very promising (US-Kazakhstan Business Association). The majority of hydrocarbon reserves are located in the oil- and gas-rich regions of Kashagan, Tengiz and Karachaganak. The discovery of the Kashagan Field in 2000 is considered to be the largest oil......

Energy Sector

...Energy sector All businesses depend directly on the energy sector which is the largest single market in the world. Some energy companies trade in fossil fuels (coal,gas and petroleum) while others supply electricity or fuel to end users.Many of the products derived from petroleum, like plastic, chemicals and fertilizers are essential components or ingredients for industry. As petroleum reserves become scarcer this drives up oil prices and encourages companies and governments to develop alternative or renewable energies .Increasing energy consumption is creating pollution and causing global warming. An increasing number of petroleum geologists have warned that official estimates of available global oil reserves are dangerously exaggerated. For energy companies, proven oil and gas reserves are their primary indicator of economic health. There may be considerably less oil in the world than the oil-producing countries and energy companies claim and it would be logical to expect that oil production could peak far sooner than predicted. For economy still reliant on fossil fuels the effects would be catastrophic. All major players In the oil business insist that there will be enough oil to last well through the 21 st century. The optimistic oil-reserve estimates also fail to take into consideration one vital question what will happen if global demand for energy continues to rise? The consequences of overestimating the global oil supply would be devastating. In......

Global Recession, Oil Sector and Economic Growth in Nigeria

...Volume 01 Issue 06 GLOBAL RECESSION, OIL SECTOR AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN NIGERIA. BY S. O. OLADIPO (M.sc) Department of Economics and Accounting Bells University of Technology, Ota. E-mail address: giftsamniyo@yahoo.com AND PROF. J. O. FABAYO Department of Economics, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife ABSTRACT This study investigates global recession and the oil sector, based on its effects on economic growth in Nigeria. No doubt the global economy has been experiencing some disturbances. Major economies of the world have been affected and so has the major sectors of these economies especially the ones that has a direct bearing with international trade been affected. The oil sector particularly has been one of the hit. For a country like Nigeria whose international trade is majorly in oil, the effect has become an issue. Empirical analysis using the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) reveals that there was a negative relationship between GDP and oil produced (domestic consumption and export) which is significant at 5% lever of significance i.e. (P < 0.05). The result also showed that there exists decline in the oil sector due to the global recession despite all measures given by government to curb it effects. It was Jan 2012 recommended that the federal government needs to deregulate the sector for efficient performance, and also come up with more rigorous policies that will reduce this effects on the real sector most especially the oil sector whose contribute the largest portion......

The Oil Sector

...see these firms as key "tells" for the energy market. One such firm is oil services giant Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB). The reason I watch this stock so carefully and listen to all of management's conference calls and presentations is that Schlumberger has its hands in every region of the world and in every conceivable type of oil project currently underway. If you're looking for the 35,000-foot view of the oil market, Schlumberger is your best bet. The era of cheap oil and natural gas is over and we're in the middle of one of the most powerful bull market cycles of the 21st century. There are no major pockets of untapped "easy" oil left to be exploited. In other words, the easy and cheap-to-recover onshore oil fields are mature and, for the most part, already seeing declining production. The world's new potential growth plays in oil: deepwater reserves, Artic reserves, oil sands and other technically more-difficult-to-produce reserves. For such resources to be developed, crude oil prices will need to average well north of $55 per barrel. There's a distinction to be made between the idea that the world is running out of oil and the concept of the end of easy oil. The world will never truly run out of oil; the last barrel of oil will never even be produced. The simple fact is that production from a reserve tops out long before that reserve is even halfway produced. Just because there's a good deal more oil left in the ground doesn't mean you can produce it quickly or......

The World's Oil

...and World’s Oil Suppliers [Draft] February 21, 2014 History of Petroleum The world petroleum means literally rock oil. It was thought to be a completely different oil than that which comes from vegetable sources such as the olive, but modern research has traced its origin to the lipids (oil) of planktonic (free floating) plants and animals which live in brackish water such as blue-green algaes and foraminifera. The brackishness is essential because aerobic bacteria does not live in brackish water. Aerobic bacteria would decompose all of the organic matter. In brackish water the organic matter of the planktonic plants and animals sinks to the bottom and is incorporated in clay sediments which ultimately become sedimentary rocks. This is the origin of the oil shales (www.sjsu.edu). Today, petroleum or crude oil, is the most traded commodity in the world. It is the most important commodity because of its common use in everyday life. The cars we drive today heavily depend on crude oil refined products such as gasoline and motor oil. The plastic products we use daily are created using by-products of crude oil. Crude oil is essential to our daily life, therefore making it a very highly demanded commodity. Unfortunately, because of the world’s dependency on oil, an increase in oil prices has huge effects on everything. Food prices dramatically increase when there is a shift in oil prices. Transportation costs for transporting food increases with higher oil prices,......

Africa’s Path to Growth: Sector by Sector

...Africa’s path to growth: Sector by sector The continent’s growth story isn’t entirely about the extractive industries. Seven articles examine the future of a wide range of sectors. Although Africa’s growth prospects are bright, they differ not only country by country but also sector by sector. In these articles, we examine the possibilities for seven of them: agriculture, banking, consumer goods, infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, and telecommunications. Perhaps the most fundamental point is that Africa’s growth story is hardly limited to the extractive industries. As many as 200 million Africans will enter the consumer goods market by 2015. Banking and telecommunications are growing rapidly too, and infrastructure expenditures are rising significantly faster in Africa than in the world as a whole. Not that the growth of the extractive industries won’t be impressive. The continent has more than one-quarter of the world’s arable land. Eleven of its countries rank among the top ten sources for at least one major mineral. Africa will produce 13 percent of global oil by 2015, up from 9 percent in 1998. For many companies, this is a future worth investing in. 2 Africa’s path to growth: Sector by sector Agriculture: Abundant opportunities Kartik Jayaram, Jens Riese, and Sunil Sanghvi Agriculture is Africa’s largest economic sector, representing 15 percent of the continent’s total GDP, or more than $100 billion annually. It is highly concentrated, with Egypt and......

Which are the solutions to control the harmful effects of oil prices increase B. What strategies are implementing in Colombia to deal with the effects of oil prices increase. Thesis statement Since the 1970s the world hadn`t experienced an oil increase like the one that is happening these days where many countries are concerned about the effects that this phenomenon can bring to their economies. As an oil exporting country, Colombia has to deal with a lot of challenge in order to transform all the revenues from petroleum into benefits to their society. However there are some effects that can bring some instability to this small economy, especially the one that international markets create a speculative bubble which can end in the Dutch disease. ‘The Dutch disease is a major market failure originating in the existence of cheap and abundant natural or human resources that keep the currency of a country......

In our view, companies (such as the ones under our coverage) that have; agricultural land rights in equatorial regions (where oil palms thrive), industry expertise, experienced management teams, and access to capital, have defensible competitive advantages and are likely to experience earnings growth and margin expansion going forward. New Britain Palm Oil (NBPO LN, BUY, 1,197p price target, 23% upside) NBPO produces sustainable and traceable Palm Oil in Papua New Guinea (PNG), which it sells to European markets. We believe the company’s competitive advantages, (the traceability and sustainability of its oil, above industry average yields, land and other assets, management team and industry relationships) will enable it to increase sales, expand margins and maintain a market leading position going forward.
