DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/05/2014 – – Global Equity International, Inc. (OTCQB:GEQU) and its fully owned subsidiary, Global Equity Partners, Plc., a business consulting services firm to small and medium sized businesses worldwide, today announced it has signed an agreement with VT Hydrocarbon Holdings (Pte.) Ltd., to assist in the raising of 78,000,000 US Dollars in order to acquire an LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) storage tank facility in Jordan. GEQU agreed to a cash finder’s fee which will be a percentage of the total amount to be raised and also an equity fee post funding. Global Equity International Inc. further announced that it has effectively sourced the $78 million and VT Hydrocarbon is in physical possession of a letter of “Proof of Funds” from the potential investors.
VT’s ground operations are based in the Aqaba Special Economic Zone in Aqaba in the country of Jordan. VT will acquire, operate, manage and build hydrocarbon storage farms in Aqaba and expand to repeat the formula in other parts of the world. VT’s main business focus is to provide Liquid Petroleum Gas storage as well as other wet fuel facilities. Operating in a politically neutral zone, VT expects to initially acquire an existing storage facility and repurpose it to specialize in wet fuel storage and LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) storage. The Company, VT Hydrocarbon Holdings, intends to directly respond to the 45% market deficit in LPG supply being suffered in the local region, which includes the neighboring countries of Jordan.
LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) demand is increasing yearly in the region for many reasons, mainly domestic consumption, feedstock for petrochemicals, and fuel for vessels. There is no effective storage for this demand. Storage is required to ensure steady supply, price stability and security. VT’s aim will be to provide the largest and most state of the art LPG facility and logistics to support the region
Peter Smith, CEO of Global Equity International Inc., said: “This is a fantastic opportunity due to the global shortage of storage for LPG tanks as well as VT’s goal to be the primary energy storage provider in the region supplying support to other industry players such as Jordanian Petroleum Refineries, Total, and Manaseer Group. We believe VT will be a significant piece of the LPG landscape. The company is well suited to our particular market, contacts and interests, and we look forward to assisting in their growth plan during the next three years. Finally, the resulting the cash and equity fees will undoubtedly boost our Company´s financials.”
