    ATCC President Reflects on Chamber’s First Three Years

    (ATTC President: Victoria Balaban)

    When an organization is founded on a major national holiday, it’s a good sign its founders are sure of their cause and have bright hopes for their new entity’s future. Such is the case with the Argentine-Texas Chamber of Commerce, which was founded three years ago on Argentina’s 25 de mayo holiday, which marks the start of that country’s path to independence from Spain.

    Although the Chamber’s first three years may not have been as momentous as the events that unfolded in Buenos Aires in 1810, there is much to be proud of and plenty to come, according to Chamber president, Victoria Balaban, who is also one of the organization’s founding members.

    “Our first objective is to stimulate synergy between the two regions, but through collaboration with other chambers we are also finding ways to increase our impact,” she said in a recent interview.

    Indeed, the synergy between the two regions is already “Texas-sized.” Trade between Argentina and Houston alone reached a high of 3.7 billion dollars in 2014, though it tapered off somewhat in the following years. The balance is strongly in Houston’s favor, but Argentine companies are making inroads.

    This is one area where the Chamber has expanded its presence, across multiple sectors. As an example, Balaban points to the support ATCC gave to a trade mission to Houston from the American Chamber of Commerce in Argentina to study medical technologies. Among other things, ATCC helped arrange a visit to MD Anderson for the AmCham delegation. The Chamber is now helping arrange the agenda for another AmCham mission in October to explore opportunities in logistics.

    ATCC can also provide valuable support to US companies looking to expand into Argentina. This is especially the case for smaller companies that do not have the resources that larger companies do as they seek to grow their business in new markets.

    “We have a wide range of contacts we can reach out to in business and government in Argentina that can then provide US companies with information and support in getting started there,” commented Balaban. The Chamber is also taking part in organizing a Texas trade mission to Argentina in 2020.

    She added that finding the right opportunity and the right people to work with is critical to any company looking to expand into Argentina, given the country’s political and economic volatility. Her recommendation to any company looking to take that leap: “Be flexible and willing to live with uncertainty. It’s also a good idea to find a local partner or distributor.”

    Despite her words of caution, Balaban is confident that companies that take the right approach and are willing to be patient, can find tremendous opportunities in Argentina. Why? “Because there is everything to be done,” she responded.

    And those opportunities go well beyond the energy sector and the much vaunted Vaca Muerta formation, home to one of the world’s richest deposits of shale gas and oil, which has already captured billions of dollars in foreign investment. Other sectors that offer great potential include real estate, health care, information technology and services, like legal and accounting services. Yet another is Fintech (technology applied to financial transactions), given Argentina’s low rate of bancarization.

    As much as ATCC has accomplished and hopes to accomplish, it is still a small organization that depends on the volunteer efforts of Balaban and other members. So, to boost its impact the Chamber often collaborates with other chambers – from the Brazil-Texas Chamber of Commerce to the Russia-Texas Chamber of Commerce – to co-sponsor events or activities. Such was the case with a cocktail 10 chambers combined organized in May on the evening before the start of the energy sector’s mega-event in Houston, the Offshore Technology Conference. More than 330 persons attended the cocktail.

    Looking ahead, Balaban said ATCC’s objective is to continue building on the successes of its first three years and expand its membership. With the two regions having so much in common, like a strong presence in natural resources industries, and Texas being home to a large Spanish-speaking population, the potential is enormous.

    “I think the fact that we have a 95% renewal rate on memberships shows that the Chamber can add real value to people and companies looking to do business between the two regions,” she said. And much like investors eyeing Argentina she is confident that there is still so much to do.

    Taxation on Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)

    LLCs are a creation of state law. LLCs are owned (and in some cases managed) by members who aren’t personally liable for the LLC’s debts or obligations.
    Under the “Check-the-box” entity classification rules, if an LLC isn’t mandatorily classified as a corporation, it’s an “eligible entity” that may elect to be classified for tax purposes either as a partnership or as a corporation, except that a single-member LLC that doesn’t elect to be a corporation is treated as a disregarded entity and its activities are treated in the same manner as a sole proprietorship, branch or division.
    Partnerships are “pass-through entities” -that is, their income is subject to tax only once, at the partner level. They share this characteristic with S-corporation, but not Ccorporations (whose income is taxed twice, once at a corporate and again at the shareholder levels). Partnerships offer several advantages over S-corporations, including no limitation on the identity or number of partners; greater flexibility in allocating the enterprise’s profits, losses and credits and a partner’s basis in his partnership interest includes the partner’s share of partnership liabilities.
    In general, no gain or loss is recognized when a partner makes contributions to a partnership’s capital, whether made on formation of the partnership or later.

    Partnership Income and Deductions

    A partnership is essentially a conduit that passes through to each partner his or her share of income and deduction generated by the partnership. Thus, the partner, not the partnership, are taxed on the partnership’s income. The partnership only files an information return showing each partner’s distributive share of the partnership income, deductions, gains, losses, etc. Each partner includes his/her share of these items on his own return.
    Partnership taxable income is computed the same as an individual’s, except that certain items are separately stated, and certain deductions aren’t allowed. Each item passed through to the partners and separately stated on their returns has the same character as if realized or incurred directly by the partnership.
    Each partner reports his distributive share of the partnership income, deductions and other items (including guarantee salary and interest payments) for a partnership tax year on his/her individual return for his/her tax year with or within which ends the partnership tax year.

    TAX Withholding on Payments to Foreign Taxpayers

    Several withholding regimes enforce the imposition of tax and/or reporting requirements on foreign taxpayers. These include withholding at a 30% or lower rate on the gross amount of effectively connected income of foreign partners in a partnership. Nonresident alien individuals, foreign partnerships or corporations, and any other person that it is not a U.S. person are subject to withholding.
    A partnership must pay a withholding tax if it has “effectively connected taxable income” for the tax year (whether or not the income is distributed), any part of which is allocable to a foreign partner. Unless the partner can show that the tax should be lower, the partnership must withhold at the highest rate of U.S. (corporate or individual, as applicable) tax to which the foreign partner would be subject on that allocable income.
    The partnership must pay the withheld amount in four installments, report the partnership’s total withholding liability for its year to the IRS, and notify each foreign partner of his/her share thereof.

    Why collect the vapor stream? The components of vented vapors are harmful to the environment, as well as the employees that work around them. They consist primarily of methane plus volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous pollutants (HAPs or BTEX) and volatile natural gas liquids (NGLs). The vapors are sourced from heater treaters, flash gas separators, vapor recovery towers (VRTs) or crude oil and produced water storage tanks. The higher BTU content (BTUs/cu. ft) of the vapor stream can be an additional revenue source, allowing the operator to not only recover the cost of the rotary screw used to capture the vapors, but also increase return on the asset. The rotary screw compressor is one of the few rental equipment lease operating expenses that can payout beyond a breakeven point and contribute to lease profits.

    How to collect the vapor stream? Install a properly sized, single stage rotary screw compressor with an auto-start feature and 100% turndown. If the compressor experiences downtime, then the vapor stream is diverted to a flare stack or combuster. Lost vapors equal lost revenue. Multi-Stream is a unique application, in that the compressor suction can be taken from any two of the source points, but primarily from the VRT and the storage tanks. As shown on the attached Fig.1 below, the vapors from the VRT and the storage tank vapors are being collected as a Multi-Stream application (patented by Flogistix LP) and switched to the sales line by a precise programmable logic controller (Flogistix Logix PLC) located on the rotary screw compressor skid. As the pressure drops below the set point of the VRT, the compressor begins taking suction from the tank vapor collection piping. When the VRT pressure rises to the set point, the suction again switches to the VRT.  Two separate vapor sources are covered by a single rotary screw compressor for the price of one.

    A re-finance event or also commonly called investor’s cash-out, is a transaction that allows the investor to withdraw equity in the form of ‘cash’ from an asset owned by the investor. After a cash-out, the investor may re-invest in new properties to keep building wealth or diversifying a portfolio.

    The simplest example is a residential home refinance. The investor buys a property for $100, after some time, market prices go up say 25%, with the property value increasing to $125. If the investor refinances 80% of the property value, he would be able to pull out the original $100, while still owning the property. The $100 might be used to invest in a new property or any other use.

    Commercial real estate prices are not as market-driven as residential real estate. In commercial real estate, market prices are mainly determined by the net operating income (NOI) that the property generates and the market Capitalization Rates (Cap Rate).

    The NOI is the bottom line of the commercial real estate rental business. In few words, NOI is sales (rental revenues) minus operating costs. The NOI can be improved through a professional property management which increases occupancy and/or rental prices; and/or reduces costs (insurance, maintenance, staff, etc.)

    The Cap Rate is the NOI divided by the property sales price. The capitalization rate indicates the rate of return that is expected to be generated on a real estate investment. As an example, if the property’s NOI is $100 and the property asking price is $1,000 its cap rate is 10%. Similar to a bond, a lower cap rate renders a higher valuation.

    Now, taking the previous example to the Commercial Real estate arena. If an investor purchases a warehouse for $1,000 with NOI of $100 (10% cap rate), if after a given time the investor manages to increase the NOI by say 35%, assuming that Cap Rate is still 10%, now your property value is $1,350. Therefore, if the property is refinanced with a bank willing to lend say 75% of property value, the investor would be able to pull out ~$1,000 as a cash-out, while keeping the property operating and generating income. Investors can then re-invest this cash in different projects.

    Refinance is a simple mechanism. However, timing is as critical as having an appealing NOI. Prevailing Interest rates and lending options, due to global, domestic and market economy conditions, are also part of the equation. These variables might reduce the loan amounts or increase financial costs delaying the refinance until better market conditions.

    In conclusion, a re-finance is an attractive strategy to build equity. However, it cannot be achieved without experience and a professional Real Estate management team, which sources properties at attractive entry prices, has a network of lending institutions and the experience to improve Net Operating Income.

    Optimization of mature well production, new technology ...


    When collecting the scarce production delivered by most mature wells, the operators turn to the conventional method of closing the well, hoping that will increase the pressure, and open it again. This task is usually carried out in an haphazard way and taking advantage of the casual presence of a visitor near the well.

    In the presence of liquids in the mature well, other operators resort directly to the use of the plunger lift system, ignoring the existence of new technologies that do not require leaving the API6A installation of the well, nor the installation of lubricator, plunger and intervention with wireline to place a receiver in the production tubing.  

    How does it work ?

    This technology, called OPTIPRO, uses a SIL2 certified electronic controller that intelligently manages the closing and opening of the well without the intervention of the operator. The controller measures the pressure increase gradient when the well is closed to determine the optimal moment to open it and measures the accumulated production when it is open, generating a production index that allows using an algorithm to command the optimal moment for closure starting a new cycle.

    The periods and pressures of closures and openings can be quite different since they do not obey determined rules but to the analysis of the real condition of the well in real time, it is even possible to clearly observe through the graphs the output of the accumulated water plugs during some periods.

    The other novelty of this new technology is that the closing and opening of the well is done by means of an actuator that is mounted on an existing positive choke in the well, allowing API6A classification of the production tree to be maintained.  

    Case study in Neuquén, Argentina

    A case study was conducted in Neuquén, Argentina, recording production during similar periods of time and using 2 different methods.

    1) Automatically timing the closing and opening and adjusting the times manually by an operator to find a better performance.

    2) Using the new OPTIPRO technology described above.

    The results showed increases in the order of 18% for the case study that lasted 21 days for each of the tested modes.

    Conclusion:

    It is always convenient to evaluate the hidden potential in the mature wells existing in each field even in some forgotten cases. Using the appropriate technology, it is possible to obtain extra profits from them.

    The ability to work in agile teams is becoming a key skill not only for entrepreneurs but also for individuals working for companies that embrace innovation.


    I recently had the chance to visit Zappos headquarters in Las Vegas. Another successful example of a We Culture where employee's ideas matter and self-organization prevails over the chain of command. Work is organized by autonomous teams, everyone focuses on their job, not their position. Everyone is important, from front-line employees to clients and suppliers. Does it look like something impossible or unthinkable? Maybe, but it is here already. It is not easy but can be done, and it generates great bottom-line results at the same time. The way that Tony Hsieh, Zappos CEO put it, chase the dream, the money will eventually follow.

    So, is it true that these teams have no managers? Well, they have less layers between employees and customers, as they are organized in teams. There is no clear hierarchy. Teams have leaders, they are called lead links (Zappos uses this title, other companies use different names), as they still need people to facilitate work and hold others accountable. In traditional structures only managers have the authority to make decisions. In their organization, everyone has the authority to make changes to the company and decisions in their work. That is what we call self-organizing or agile teams.

    Characteristics of agile teams

    Small teams: less than 12 people including a lead, the magic number is usually six. Jeff Bezos uses the “two-pizza team” philosophy, meaning the than should be small enough to be adequately fed by two pizzas, that is six to ten.

    Transparent: communication is fast and mostly face-to-face or online to ensure no delays or miscommunication.

    Autonomous: people are encouraged to choose how they will work. They are encouraged to experiment and create new ways of adding value to customers. The fact is that the people actually doing knowledge work usually have the best idea of how to do that knowledge work, given they have the proper experience. So, why not let them do it their way? This way you get faster and more creative decisions that improve customer satisfaction because they have taken closer to the gemba, where the customer is or where the action takes place.

    Quick decision making: A self-organizing team sets the limit of how much work they are expected to complete within a certain time frame. This means the team sets the expectations about what they have to complete. Usually, they even have their own budget

    Cross-functional: They consist of a mix of people who have different knowledge so that they have access to all the skills necessary to effectively deliver value to customers.

    Disciplined: even though they make lots of decisions about how they work, they follow through the agreements that were made at the beginning of the team formation, so that’s why is important to set clear goals, values and rules, and follow-up or assist closely when someone is not able to meet them. The team members must be able to work in a self-organized environment. Almost everyone can do it, but people are not usually used to it, so at first, it may be hard. Zappos recommends “Hire slowly for culture and fire quickly for culture.” They have two interviews, one for technical fit and another for culture fit, both need to be a YES. And after the first week, they offer $1000 to the employees that want to leave the company, that way they make sure they only keep the ones that are engaged.

    Value Respect: achieving a diverse workforce and obtaining the potential benefits of diversity is not just about recruiting and hiring a diverse team. To fully experience the benefits of diversity, leaders need to create a workplace wherein members of that diverse team feel appreciated and encouraged to share their perspectives

    Clear company culture: The team members share a company culture or common behaviors and habits that they value and respect, that helps them make decisions and achieve results aligned with the company purpose. I call this "The We Culture". In every company is different, but there are main habits that are practiced by everyone (any employee, no matter the hierarchy) at any time: connect to each other, ask questions (don't simply accept the status quo), respect and empower.

    Bottom-line benefits

    Benefits if this agile cultural change are huge. Employee engagement increases with team agility. They become more aware of safety issues, they are more engaged with the tasks offering more ideas for improvement and bringing up problems faster, they stay longer in the company and they become more customer-focused.

    How to choose where to start?

    The cultural transformation can start in a pilot group, or with all teams at once. I firmly recommend starting with a pilot agile team. Providing general training to everyone else and follow-up with monthly audits can complement a specific training to the pilot section. Once the first team has started and there are some learnings on what worked and what did not work, then you can continue with the next teams, in waves.

    Leaders must consider multiple criteria, including strategic importance, budget limitations, availability of people, return on investment, cost of delays, risk levels, and interdependencies among teams to choose where to start. Some companies choose based on pain points felt by customers, and others start with the more matures teams to make sure the pilot is a success.

    Tips For Making A Start In Argentina As A Foreigner

    In the 20 years I lived in Argentina, I met many foreigners visiting the country who said they would love to live there if they could only find a way to make a living. It was easy to understand how they could feel that way. Despite its many ups and downs, it’s a beautiful country, Buenos Aires is a jewel of a city, the climate is great, and the people are friendly.

    So, how can a foreigner make a go of it in Argentina? Here are five ways:

    • Expatriate: Get the company you’re working for to send you there. Of course, in most cases this will be for only a few years before you’re rotated to your next assignment.
    • Teleworking: Have a job that allows you to work remotely for employers/clients outside the country. Lots of people who work in fields like IT, design and publishing have taken this route and they can get the best of both worlds: an income in foreign currency and the pleasure of a great place to live.
    • Investor: go there and start your business make a investment.
    • Local Employee: Go there and find a job.
    • Entrepreneur: Start your own business venture.

    For the adventurous the last two options certainly offer an adventure, and many who have taken the challenge have succeeded. Despite having much in similar with the US or other Western countries, Argentina is very different in ways that might not be readily apparent. For those who have considered taking the leap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

    1. Relationships. Family and personal relationships are very important. Unlike in the US, where people move constantly and the rules tend to be clearer, feeling you can trust the people you are working or doing business with in Argentina is critical. You can build that trust, but it takes time.

    2. Learn Spanish, and don’t be afraid to use it. Sure, we all know the importance of learning the local language. The hard part is being willing to put yourself in situations where you need to use it and learn to take your errors in stride. In my early days as a journalist, I once went on a TV program to speak about the then government’s latest “measures” to fix the economy. It was only afterwards I learned that instead of saying medidas (measures), I kept saying medias (socks).

    3. Network, network, network. Ok, so you don’t have relationships that go back decades and your Spanish needs some work. What to do? Beyond doing the kind of networking within your area of interest you would do in the US when you’re looking for a job or doing business, network and socialize as much as you can in other circles too. As suggested in item 1, relationships run wide and deep in Argentina so the person you are talking to might not be in your line of work but he or she may have a primo (cousin) or childhood friend who is and would be willing to make an introduction.

    4. It takes time to understand local rules and regulations, and keep you up to speed.

    5. Assess your tolerance. Argentina’s economy has had its ups and downs. You need to be the kind of person who can adapt to change and figure out how to work around obstacles you may encounter.

    6. Figure out your competitive advantage: Beating out the local talent for a job or in a business field can be tough, unless you have some competitive advantage. In my case, the combination of my business experience and ability to write well in English opened opportunities for me, first as a freelance journalist and then as a newspaper editor. Maybe your competitive advantage is experience with a business concept that hasn’t been tried yet in Argentina or an extensive network of contacts or business associates back home that can be leveraged somehow. Whatever it is, you’ll need it.

    7. Have realistic expectations: Even if you have an outstanding resume, you might have to settle for less than your dream job, until you get established and prove yourself. If you’re starting your own venture, you might not want to go all in right away but give yourself some time to get the lay of the land. When folks down there start to see that you’re planning to stay for a while – and not just out to make a quick buck – opportunities will open.

    Of course, staying long enough to pursue your ambition will require you to get residency in the country, but an immigration lawyer can tell you more about your options for that.

    Starting anew as a foreigner in Argentina can be challenging, but if you’re willing to invest the time and effort it can be done. It is, after all, a country like the US that has become home to millions of immigrants over the years.

    In this article we share how we implemented 5S in an international bottling company, in all sectors, and with suppliers, to reduce costs, increase engagement and improve safety.

    An international bottling company defined the 5S methodology as a fundamental part of its growth and sustainable development. We worked with them to implement 5S on the bottling lines, the manufacturing sector, administration, the dining room, the first aid room, and even the entry and security areas. Even suppliers were trained. Why did they choose this tool? How did they benefit from it?

    5S is a Japanese tool that aims to help companies improve organization and housekeeping to increase productivity. With 5 steps -- sort, store, shine, standardize and sustain-- 5S aligns the objectives of the different sectors of an organization by applying new habits and behaviors.

    With a clear definition of responsibilities and processes, presented visually, it is possible to improve communication between sectors and eliminate "gray areas" where no one takes full accountability. It seems like a simple tool since it does not use statistics like Six Sigma, nor does it require prior knowledge. However, it is difficult to implement because it requires a cultural change and working in a different way. It involves a set of activities designed to change the habits and behavior of people to create good working and environmental conditions, and to improve quality, productivity, commitment and safety.

    That's why the first thing we did in our project was implement the first S, sort: divide the entire organization into sectors, both physically and in terms of personnel, and choose a pilot sector with which to start training.

    The first S, Sort

    As part of the first S, Sort, we defined which tools or documents were needed, and which were not. We prepared an inventory. Many tools and objects did not belong in the sector, or there were too many of them. While others were necessary but not in good condition, or not in the location or quantity needed. The operators were the first to discover these details by observing their own place of work. One of the characteristics of 5S is to work with the ideas of the employees. The workers themselves know what they need and what they don't need, though they do not know how to express it. They do not know who to tell or they are afraid to provide feedback.

    The second S, Store

    Although we eliminated many things, it was difficult to maintain the workplace organized. New employees or suppliers were the main cause of chaos and disorder, and it was difficult to avoid. So, we identified what we needed, and defined a specific “home” for each item, so that everyone could find it and return it to its home after using it.

    The third S, Shine

    Storing objects is essential to keeping them "good as new", and that is the beginning of the third S: Shine. A lot of money is spent maintaining unneeded stock or replacing and repairing tools, when just taking care of them is much more efficient. As part of the third S, cleaning schedules for each sector and its instruments were defined. From the roof and the windows, to the floor, machinery, tools and drawers. 5S in industries seeks not to clean, but to avoid letting things get dirty in the first place.

    The fourth S, Standardize

    We needed to increase the visibility of the norms to make them "unforgettable". The bottling company began to apply visual controls everywhere and defining procedures or adding 5S standards to existing procedures. We emphasized making the procedures “baby proof” by including pictures, sketches or examples, and being very specific. The graphics not only had to say what must be done, but how, when, and by whom.

    The fifth S, Sustain

    The fifth S is where many companies abandon 5S. 5S in industries is not simply a couple of months of training It is a new habit. 5S is not implemented until employees are proud of their workplace. When they reach this level, they have incorporated 5S in their way of working and living. They even apply the knowledge at home and in their personal lives. Clear indications of a 5S level are when employees are requesting an internal audit, or sending pictures showing their accomplishments.
