    Koleya Karringten Smith is the co-founder and President of Absolute Combustion International (ACI). With over 12 years of entrepreneurial experience she has helped to create and develop a company that will change the landscape of burning solutions for the industrial sector of the energy world.

    The vision for flameless burners originated with inventor Darsell Karringten, who passed away last year and left a world of possibilities in his wake. The vision is to become one of the world’s leading burner technology innovators, that delivers the highest heat transfer efficiency possible with the lowest emissions in numerous applications for the international market.

    The goal is to provide proactive and sustainable solutions to organizations looking to improve heat transfer efficiency, combustion performance and emissions.

    Absolute Combustion International Inc. (ACI) has designed, produced and tested a completely revolutionary, near flameless, burner technology that dramatically improves the key performance characteristics of industrial combustion systems. The Absolute Extreme Burner provides a clear and powerful value proposition for the oil and gas industry and other applications. This includes: meeting increasing regulatory standards, lower emissions and a reduction of the amount of fuel consumed during normal operation by 30% or more, thereby increasing production efficiency, reducing operational expenses and increasing workplace safety.

    The Absolute Extreme Burner can deliver an Exhaust Velocity Harmonic TM (EVH) that can dramatically increase heat transfer efficiency in a fire-tube application. The ACI burner has 100% combustion efficiency, leaving zero carbon monoxide (CO) emissions in the exhaust stream.

    With Koleya Karringten at the helm leading the product to market, the ACI burner is proving itself in combustion technology, GHG reduction, air pollution control equipment, energy efficiency, NOx reduction, heat transfer efficiency, fire-tube applications, separators and treators, and
    SAGD applications.

    Gaining international recognition, Koleya most recently introduced the ACI burner to Arab markets and has just completed her speaking engagement at the Middle East Heavy Oil Congress in Bahrain.

    With a keen eye for the solutions of the future, Koleya and the ACI team are vastly contributing to the sustainable development revolution.

    Tina Olivero

    30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
