2009 World Water Week participants unanimously support Stockholm Statement on water, climate change, and adaptation

Stockholm, Sweden- The participants of the 2009 World Water Week in Stockholm unanimously said that water must be included in the COP-15 climate negotiations in Copenhagen this December.

At various sessions throughout the Week, a number of organizations and officials have articulated the
reasons why water needs to be an integral part of the negotiation process on climate change and
adaptation. Full News: http://www.investorideas.com/News/082709f.asp

Featured Water Stock Showcase Company: Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE )

Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE) is an Oil and Gas solutions provider focused on deploying its water remediation and environmental technologies that overcome tough operational challenges facing oil and gas operators today on a global basis. Virtually anywhere in the world oil is produced contaminated water is produced, this includes associated formation water in conventional oil and gas production and potable water used in unconventional oil production such as the massive Oil Sands development in Alberta Canada.
Using conventional oil/water/solids separation technology, between 0.05% - 5% (500 ppm - 50,000 ppm) residual oil content remains in the water, Wescorp's patented, proven and highly scalable H2Omaxx microscopic aeration technology addresses this crisis by being able to increase the recovery of oil and reduce the amount of hydrocarbons in the contaminated water to less than 0.001% or 10 ppm. Wescorp's H2Omaxx is extremely economical and environmentally friendly eliminating the use of chemicals, filtration systems, high temperature systems and high pressure vessels.

Dave LeMoine, Wescorp’s VP Corporate Development explains more “Produced water handling and treatment represents an $18 billion cost to the oil and gas industry in the United States alone. The cost of disposing of oil and gas produced water ranges from a low of $0.002 per gallon ($0.08/barrel) to a high of $0.30 a gallon ($12.00/barrel). By contrast, water for agricultural irrigation can be as low as $0.0001 per gallon ($0.004/barrel) and municipal drinking water costs in the range of $0.001 per gallon ($0.04/barrel). The price of cleaning produced water is therefore as much as 300 times greater than municipal water, and as much as 3,000 times greater than agricultural irrigation water. By oil and gas producers incorporating Wescorp’s H20Maxx technology will reduce the use of fresh water, allow for in increase in the recycling of produced water, and have a small impact on the eco system.

Digital Media Stocks: Using Law and Technology Anti- piracy Strategies to Deter Illegal Downloads of Music and Videos

Opportunities and Solutions for Digital Media Stocks DivX, Inc. (NASDAQ: DIVX), USA Video Interactive Corporation (NasdaqOTCBB: USVO) (CDNX: US.V), ADB Group (SIX: ADBN)


POINT ROBERTS, WA –August 25, 2009 www.DigitalMediaStocks.com , an investor
and industry portal for the digital media sector within Investorideas.com reports on proposed law, and technology advances on the digital media online piracy battlefront.

How big is the problem? The most pirated movie, Watchmen, released March 2009 was pirated
16.9 million times according to sources: Big Champagne, boxofficemojo.com. The TV show, Heroes, was reportedly pirated 54.6 million times.

According to Patrick Gregston of watermarking technology company, USA Video Interactive Corporation (NasdaqOTCBB: USVO) (CDNX: US.V ), the opportunity created from the piracy problem is significant. “The content marketplace is now a dynamic field as digital technology changes and challenges the world’s largest content distributors. We are now seeing a marked increase in inquiries from major studios and other content owners as to the use of our specialized forensic technologies,” stated the company’s Head of Business Development.

“The power of digital technologies to make their businesses more efficient and create new business with new markets and consumers is becoming more compelling than the threat of piracy. Yet engaging those opportunities requires innovative security strategies that enhance access and enable transactions. More and more content owners are seeing the efficacy of our solutions as compared to the complicated and ineffective methods that have alienated consumers and failed to prevent theft”. The company has a two year track record with a well-known Hollywood studio using its watermarking technology.

The piracy issues have also benefited DivX, Inc. (Nasdaq: DIVX), a digital media company that announced deals this month with two major studios, for secure downloads of movies. On August 4th, the company announced a deal with Paramount Digital Entertainment that will enable online retailers worldwide to offer Paramount Pictures feature films for secure download in the high-quality DivX® video format. The company’s technologies enable users to compress, secure, and distribute digital video.

Advanced Digital Broadcast, a leading supplier of technology to the global digital television industry, announced it is adding watermarking capabilities to its TV convergence solutions portfolio. ADB has integrated Civolution's VTrack watermarking technology (www.civolution.com) into its digital TV set-top boxes, thus providing operators with further means of protecting content.

ADB is a member of ADB Group (www.adbholdings.com). ADB Group is publicly listed on the Swiss stock exchange (SIX: ADBN).

"The integration of VTrack in ADB's set-top boxes shows VTrack's flexibility in integrating with different platforms ranging from cable, satellite, terrestrial to IPTV. VTrack is a robust and easy to integrate solution," said Alex Terpstra, CEO of Civolution. "Now with the increased availability of high definition and early release content, the (camera) capture and distribution of high quality content copies is a new threat requiring fast, efficient and cost-effective solutions,'' concluded Terpstra.

Countries are turning to law, as well as technology, to crack down on illegal downloads. Three-strikes laws have been proposed in the U.K., France and New Zealand. The three strikes law would empower ISP’s to cut off Internet access following warnings and repeated illegal downloads of pirated music and videos.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, UK www.coi.gsi.gov.uk just announced it is seeking views on the idea of including a power, under the forthcoming Digital Economy Bill, for the Secretary of State to direct Ofcom to introduce technical measures to clamp down on piracy, if necessary.

This would involve an obligation on Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to take action against individual, repeat infringers - for example by blocking access to download sites, reducing broadband speeds, or by temporarily suspending the individual’s Internet account.

“Technology and consumer behaviour is fast-changing and it’s important that Ofcom has the flexibility to respond quickly to deal with unlawful file-sharing.

Featured Oil and Gas Showcase Stock – Water Remediation for the Oil and Gas Sector
Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE ) is an Oil and Gas solutions provider focused on deploying its water remediation and environmental technologies that overcome tough operational challenges facing oil and gas operators today on a global basis. Virtually anywhere in the world oil is produced contaminated water is produced, this includes associated formation water in conventional oil and gas production and potable water used in unconventional oil production such as the massive Oil Sands development in Alberta Canada.
Using conventional oil/water/solids separation technology, between 0.05% - 5% (500 ppm - 50,000 ppm) residual oil content remains in the water, Wescorp's patented, proven and highly scalable H2Omaxx microscopic aeration technology addresses this crisis by being able to increase the recovery of oil and reduce the amount of hydrocarbons in the contaminated water to less than 0.001% or 10 ppm. Wescorp's H2Omaxx is extremely economical and environmentally friendly eliminating the use of chemicals, filtration systems, high temperature systems and high pressure vessels.

Insiders Corner – Tracking Insider Buying Trends
Excerpt from “The Insiders Corner”, August 2009


Tech buyers with good records
By Michael Brush
Exclusively at Investorideas.com

Tech is a sector where insiders overall have turned bearish of late. So when you see buyers with great records picking up their own shares in this group, it stands out.

A director with a solid record at Universal Display (PANL) bought a sizable amount of stock, or $324,000 worth, in mid-August. Universal Display, which makes components used in lighting and display panels, has negative cash flow, but it has around $1.60 a share in cash and no debt. So it appears to have decent financial strength.

The tiny chip maker Integrated Silicon Solution (ISSI) saw continued buying by an insider with a good track record in the past week. This company also appears financially sound with $2.80 a share in cash and no debt. The stock trades for $3.70.

Interactive Intelligence (ININ) sells software used in voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) at businesses. This company has good financial strength – or $3 a share in cash and no debt. An insider with a solid record was a substantial buyer in mid-August.

Crane (CR) is a “tech” company in the sense that it provides sensors, flow control systems and electrical components to aerospace and defense companies. But it also sells materials used in commercial construction, and vending machines, so it’s not pure tech. The company’s chief Eric Fast has a decent record for timing purchases, and he was a significant buyer in mid-August.

Water Stocks Sector Close –Up; Market Opportunity for Remediating Oil-Contaminated Water

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC –August 11, 2009 www.Water-Stocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the water sector within Investorideas.com, presents a sector close-up on water stocks by Lisa Springer CFA, Equity research analyst, on the market opportunity for remediating oil- contaminated water.

Market Opportunity Remediating Oil-Contaminated Water
Lisa Springer CFA, Equity research analyst and financial writer

Stocks Covered:
Cameron Intl Corp (NYSE:CAM), Nalco (NYSE:NLC), National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV), Veolia (NYSE:VE), Wescorp Energy (OTCBB: WSCE), Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT)

Although oil spills capture headlines, a greater environmental challenge for the oil and gas industry is remediating water polluted in their production operations. Water that comes up with the production of oil and gas is called “produced water.’” Produced water is tainted with hydrocarbon solids, sand, drill cuttings and salts. Oil companies spend an estimated $50 billion every year remediating and/or disposing of produced water to comply with local, state, provincial and federal environmental laws.
The volume of produced water worldwide is estimated at tens of billions of barrels each year. On average, every barrel of oil produced results in three barrels of produced water. That equates to managing or disposing of more than 250 million barrels of produced water each and every day. The hydrocarbons trapped in produced water are, not only an environmental hazard, but also a source of lost revenues. Data indicates that, on average, nine tons of oil is released via produced water for every million tons of hydrocarbons produced.
Disposal costs for produced water add to already high energy bills. These costs typically include trucking, pre-treatment, injection and desalination, and can run as high as $15 per barrel. Disposing of the hydrocarbon solids that remain after the water is treated is even costlier, estimated at nearly $72 per barrel.
Remediation costs for produced water are likely to continue to rise because regulators are pressing for more stringent environmental laws. Penalties for non-compliance are severe; for example, Suncor was recently fined $850,000 for an environmental violation. Costs are also increasing because oil companies are producing more oil to meet the world’s insatiable appetite for energy. Producers are stimulating production from older wells through re-fracturing, a process requiring massive amounts of fresh water, and tapping unconventional oil field plays such as the Alberta Oil Sands and the Barnett Shale. Canadian producers are already consuming over 540 million barrels of fresh water in Alberta Oil Sands operations, resulting in paying water clean up and disposal costs exceeding $100 million annually. Despite the fact that globally fresh water is becoming a scarce commodity, more water is being used, leading to demands that producers reduce water consumption. The problem is that today’s unconventional oil productions require more water than ever – as many as 20 barrels of water for every barrel of oil produced.

The management of produced water is a large market and several companies are marketing technologies for cleaning produced water. The Petreco Wemco division of Cameron (NYSE:CAM) markets a heat treatment technology that separates hydrocarbons from water. National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV) manufactures and sells equipment that mechanically removes suspended solids from produced water. Nalco (NYSE:NLC) offers an aeration technology called Induced Gas Flotation that removes suspended particles from water. Privately-held Welco Expediting and Process Group market centrifuging technologies for cleaning produced water. The GE Zeon segment of General Electric (NYSE:GE), Siemens Water Technology and Veolia (NYSE:VE) offer treatment methods based on filtering membranes. Although all of the above-mentioned methods remove some of the pollutants, most single technologies leave behind residential oil content ranging from 500 to 50,000 parts per million in the water. Having residual hydrocarbon in their produced water has a major impact on producers’ operating expenses.
Wescorp Energy (OTCBB:WSCE) recently began marketing a novel remediation technology called H20Maxx, which the company claims offers a safer, more effective and economical process for cleaning and separating oil and solids from produced water. H20Maxx employs a patented aeration technology that creates microscopic nitrogen bubbles several orders of magnitude smaller than conventional methods. These bubbles attach to oil droplets and break the oil/water interface, allowing oil to be separated. Third party laboratory tests have shown that H20Maxx reduces oil content in produced water to less than 10 parts per million. Because H20Maxx-treated water is more hydro carbon-free, it dramatically reduces both operating costs and water consumption and also provides the producer with a resalable oil stream. For producers operating in areas where water is in short supply such as the Barnett Shale and Alberta Oil Sands, the ability to re-cycle water is a major advantage.

Oil and gas producers recognize the benefits of H20Maxx and have begun using Wescorp’s technology. Last December, Wescorp received 3rd party verification of the H20Maxx’s efficiency and scalability, which led to the signing of a letter of intent with Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT).Weatherford is one of the world’s largest energy services providers, with operations in more than 100 countries and annual revenues of nearly $10 billion.

In 2009, Wescorp has made significant progress deploying its technology. The company shipped its first H20Maxx unit to an oil/gas operator in Kansas in May. The unit began operating in July, providing remediation services for one conventional oil well, and is performing well. The oil company in Kansas has now ordered a second unit. H20Maxx units are leased on a day lease rate with a 2,000 barrels/day unit leasing for approximately $1,500/day. In June, Wescorp announced the leasing of an H20Maxx unit to Western Canadian Oil Sands, which plans to deploy the unit at its Athabasca Oil Sands operations in Northern Alberta. In late July, Wescorp announced a 50/50 joint venture with Cancen Oil Canada Corporation to initially install a combined 12 H20Maxx water units and HXCT solids units over the next 12 months at Cancen’s facilities. The joint venture will then build additional units to provide onsite remediation to oil and gas producers in western Canada. Cancen will fund, operate and manage the joint venture, as well as fund construction and deployment costs of the units.
