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 Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge in partnership with recognized oil and natural gas industry leaders Noble Energy and ConocoPhillips. In addition to industry partners, the 2017 Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge is supported by Wells Fargo Foundation, Consulate General of Canada in Denver, Colorado Energy Office, Altira and Rocky Mountain Institute.
