The Rice Energy Finance Summit (REFS) is an annual student-led conference promoting forward-looking discussions on the most relevant energy finance, investment and strategy topics affecting the global energy industry. And founders Jan Goetgeluk and Jesús Patiño say it's just another example of what you can do with the support and resources found within the Rice community & network. Jan is originally from Belgium, where he earned a bachelor's and master's in mechanical engineering from Ghent University, and came to Houston in 2007 as a project engineer for Katoen Natie, a Belgian petrochemical logistics conglomerate. Jan is the founder and CEO of Virtuix and the developer of the Virtuix Omni, the first virtual reality interface to move freely and naturally in video games and virtual worlds. Jesús has over 15 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. He began his career in the oil field with M-I SWACO in his home country of Mexico before expanding into deepwater drilling assignments in the US Gulf of Mexico, Equatorial Guinea, and Ghana. Jesús is a strategy and business development consultant at AerMill Solutions. He previously worked at Oceaneering International as a commercial manager for intervention services. They join host Scott Gale ‘19 to discuss how they first met at Rice international student orientation many years ago, how Hurricane Ike affected the first year of the conference (as well as their friendship), and the importance of swinging big.Episode Quotes:A reflection on rich experiences during and after Rice16:40 [Jan] It's such an incredible rich experience being at Rice Business School. It's a unique time in your life, and for me, it's still today the best time of my life. [Jesus] And that goes definitely to the program and also for the alumni life, right? Once you're an alum, there's always something interesting going on. And being outside Houston, it's harder to remain involved, but attending the events outside Houston and trying to be part of it. You always get more than what you put in.Ideas are like buses 18:39 [Jan] If you want to organize a conference and make it a big success, it's just a matter of doing it. A lot of people have a lot of ideas in life. And I always say that ideas are like buses. There's another one every five minutes. You have to do it, and you have to execute and make it happen.The Rice Business School advantage13:05 [Jesus] Every time I speak with a student, nowadays, I always tell them that there's only two years in their lives where they are going to be able to start an email saying, "I am a Rice MBA student that wants to speak with you." And that line is powerful because it really resonates with people; you get their attention, and that's a door opener that you shouldn't let go.Show Links:TranscriptGuest Profile: Jan Goetgeluk LinkedIn Profile Jesús Patiño's Professional Profile on Rice University Other links: About the Rice Energy Finance Summit Virtuix
This is the extraordinary, blood-curdling story of a dictator you may never have heard of. From 1968-1979, the African nation of Equatorial Guinea was helmed by its first, and to date only, freely elected president. Initially, Francisco Macías Nguema was seen by the Spanish colonial authorities as a safe choice. He proved to be anything but. Things went off the rails at an astonishing rate, as Macías rapidly turned the country into what would be called the ‘Dachau of Africa'. His is a tale of sheer opportunism on the way up, and drug-fuelled paranoia on the way down… Narrated by Paul McGann. A Noiser production, written by Sean Coleman. This is Part 1 of 2.

On August 1, 2017, China official opened its first overseas military base in the East African nation of Djibouti. The base, constructed to provide logistical support to the Chinese navy's counter-piracy mission off the coast of Somalia, marked a major step toward Xi Jinping's goal of constructing a world class military by the middle of the century.The US Defense Department has just released its annual China Military Power Report, and that says that the People's Republic of China (PRC) probably has also considered adding military logistics facilities in 19 countries around the world (in addition to Djibouti): Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Equatorial Guinea, Seychelles, Tanzania, Angola, Nigeria, Namibia, Mozambique, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and Tajikistan. To expand its global footprint, People's Liberation Army (PLA) will need to cultivate good relations with potential host countries. China's military diplomacy is likely aimed at achieving that objective among others.Today's discussion focuses on the key features and goals of China's military diplomacy and its quest for additional military installations – or what the Chinese call “strategic strongpoints.” Host Bonnie Glaser is joined by Kristin Gunness, a senior policy researcher at the RAND Corporation. She previously served as the Director of the Navy Asia Pacific Advisory Group at the Pentagon, advising the Chief of Naval Operations on security and foreign policy trends in the Indo-Pacific, focusing on Chinese naval and gray zone warfare capabilities. Earlier this year, Kristin testified on China's overseas military diplomacy and its implications for American interests at a hearing convened by the US Economic and Security Review Commission.

The UK will make R20-million in funding available to help identify the most bankable opportunities for African countries to attract investment into the processing of critical minerals. Boston Consulting Group will be carrying out the study, which should be completed by year-end. The study will assess specific opportunities for in-country processing and mid-stream value addition and will focus on South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Madagascar, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, Guinea, Ghana, Angola and Equatorial Guinea. Besides outlining high-potential prospects, the report could also identify the key constraints to the projects proceeding and provide recommendations on how these could be addressed. British High Commissioner to South Africa Antony Phillipson announced the commitment at the Critical Minerals Africa conference, taking place in Cape Town, where he reiterated the growing importance of cooperation on critical minerals for the economic partnership between South Africa and the UK. In 2022, the two countries pledged to deepen their partnership on critical minerals during President Cyril Ramaphosa's State Visit to the UK, where it was agreed more should be done to promote the responsible exploration, development, production and processing of minerals in South Africa. "African countries rightly have a high level of ambition for unlocking the value of their natural resources; and the UK will work with them in partnership to support delivery of their ambitions. "We are committed to increasing our investment in the continent and strengthening the transparency and resilience of the supply chain for critical minerals - creating green jobs in Africa, while taking action on climate change," Phillipson said. He added that demand for critical minerals was expected to more than triple by 2030, reaching over 30-million tonnes as countries sought to meet net-zero commitments, while demand for certain categories of minerals, such as lithium used in battery electric vehicles, would grow at an even faster pace. The announcement came ahead of the second UK-hosted African Investment Summit, which will take place in April 2024, and which is expected to deliver new investments in line the first Summit of 2020, where R150-billion-worth of new investments were announced. Work on the study is scheduled to take place as from the week beginning on October 23 and a decision will be made early in the new year regarding the best way to communicate the results and potentially advance the prospects further.
