ProOne Selected to Present at Colorado Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge

Costa Mesa, California, August 17, 2017  ProOne has been selected by the Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) to present at the 4th annual Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge. The 10 finalists were selected from an international pool of applicants to present at the Challenge in Denver, September 7, 2017.   The presentation will focus on ProOne’s revolutionary earth-friendly, plant-based XPL+ technology as an anti-friction metal treatment that increases rig efficiency by reducing torque and drag when drilling wells. The most significant environmental impact of ProOne’s biodegradable technology is that it allows operators to use more environmentally friendly water-based muds instead of oil-based muds.   ProOne will also introduce ProFlow Production Fluid technology, a groundbreaking new application in the oil & gas industry which ProOne has developed, successfully field tested, and filed a patent for. ProFlow is a lubricant to treat Artificial Lift Systems (ALS) to address the problems of inefficient production, high energy consumption, costly maintenance, and untimely wear and failure.   CCIA hosts the O

“Innovative Drilling Mud Additive Saves Substantial Time and Money by Dramatically Reducing Downhole Friction” – Oil & Gas Eurasia March 2015

Introduction Following successful use by operators of its innovative XPL+ (Xtreme Pressure Lubrication) drilling mud additive in more than 700 North American wells, USA-based ProOne Inc., has expanded product distribution. Now primarily shipped from 300+ locations in twenty countries worldwide through major oilfield service company National Oilwell Varco’s Distribution NOW spin-off, Eurasia locations include Nizhnevartovsk, Sakhalin, Chengdu, Shanghai and Shanghai FTZ. Impetus for this expansion was the product’s unique tested and field-proven capabilities on two fronts: solving problems and saving money. It solves more than a dozen major downhole drilling challenges and, in accomplishing that, this lubricant saves as much as $1 million per well (all examples are in U.S. dollars) by dramatically reducing friction from a rig’s entire downhole drilling system. Developing a Proprietary Downhole Drilling Treatment In R&D at ProOne, jointly headquartered in Houston, TX, and Orange County, CA (USA), scientists focused on a top priority for oil and gas operators: how to overcome, friction, the No. 1 enemy of downhole drilling.
