The Company maintains a fleet of four (4) oil transport sea vessels in addition to commodity trading and crude refining operations in the Southern Europe and East African regions.

 

  b. Affiliates and Principles of Combination– The accompanying financial statements include the financial position and results of operations of the following affiliated entities (all incorporated in The Republic of the Marshall Islands):

Petrogres Co. Limited (Management Company)

Shiba Ship Management Ltd. (Shipowners of Mt. Apecus)

Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

  e. Cash and Cash Equivalents -For purposes of the statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debts instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.All banking, transactions and reporting of the Company is conducted in US Dollars (US$).

 

  f. Concentrations of Credit Risk -The Company and its affiliates are engaged primarily in the purchase, transport and processing of crude oil petroleum products. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers' financial condition and, generally, requires no collateral from its customers. Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of temporary cash investments and trade accounts receivables. The Company places its temporary cash investments with financial institutions and limits the amount of credit exposure to any one financial institution. Concentrations of credit risk with respect to trade receivables are limited due to the short payment terms dictated by the industry and operating environment. As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company had no significant concentrations of credit risk.
  g. Depreciation -The Company's vessels and other assets are depreciated using primarily the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives.

 

  h. Inventory- The Company's inventory, which consists primarily of crude oil purchases on the vessel in transport, is valued at the lower of cost or market using the mark-to-market method of valuation.
  i. Date of Management's Review-Management has evaluated subsequent events through April 26th, 2016, the date on which the financial statements were available to be issued.
  j. Revenue Recognition-The Company recognizes revenues when product is delivered to contracted customer. Product in transit at the end of an accounting period is recorded at an estimated value which is adjusted upon load certification.
