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. Read more

ProOne Announces Agreement with American Well Technology Holdings, LLC to Market First-Ever Artificial Lift System Down Hole Lubricant

COSTA MESA, California July 25, 2017 – ProOne Inc, a leader in extreme film strength lubrication technology, announced that it has signed a Master Distributorship agreement with American Well Technology Holdings, LLC, a Texas-based company, to bring to market the world’s first Production Lubricant, with patent pending: ProFlow – A Production Flow Technology Lubricant.

ProOne and American Well Technology have been working collaboratively for two years developing, successfully field testing, and filing a patent for this groundbreaking new application in the oil & gas industry. By using a lubricant to treat Artificial Lift Systems (ALS) to address the problems of inefficient production, high maintenance costs and untimely wear and failure, the team has demonstrated that treatment with ProOne’s XPL+ bonding nano-tech lubricant increases productivity, reduces lifting costs, and results in fewer failures, less downtime, extended service intervals and equipment life cycles.

Oilman Magazine – Product Showcase: ProOne Downhole Drilling Fluid

https://oilmanmagazine.com/product-showcase-proone-inc/

With artificial lift systems (ALS) being the workhorses on the majority of wells, lubrication has been a critical but generally unaddressed problem. Now, inefficient production and untimely wear/failure are tackled with California-based ProOne Inc.’s solution: ProFlow Production Fluid Lubricant.

Driven by the success of the company’s XPL+ Xtreme Pressure Lubrication technology for drilling fluids, ProOne has now developed ProFlow, patent pending, for production wells. ProOne’s XPL+ technology has a polarized strong ionic charge so that it bonds to the metal surfaces of rod, tubing and pump components, creating primary behavior changes in ALS systems including a reduction in friction and drag in rod pumps, and torque in PCP and ESP applications.

Journal of Petroleum & Technology – Artificial-Lift Downhole-Treatment System

Artificial-lift systems (ALSs) have increasingly needed a lubrication solution to improve profitability on failing or under-performing wells, solving the problems of inefficient production or untimely wear and tear. ProOne introduced a cost-effective downhole treatment for the complete ALS system. ProFlow production fluid incorporates the company’s XPL+ lubrication technology with positively charged molecular properties to bond to all metal downhole components, reducing friction, torque, and drag by as much as 80% (Fig. 5).

Upstream Pumping – Drilling Mud Additive Combination Boosts Efficiency

Article – Drilling Mud Additive Boosts Efficiency

Even at lower concentrations, this mud conditioner can save operators money.
by Lawrence Kahn

Without the visual impact of a drilling rig structure and related equipment, mud pits seem to be a more benign aspect of “making hole.” Yet, with the cost of drilling mud as high as 10 percent of total drilling expense, the fluid had better do its job well. Ensuring optimal performance has even prompted operators to assign separate day and night mud engineers. Read more

Changes in oil and gas field operations sometimes come so quickly they seem to occur overnight. ProOne, Inc. saw real limitations with existing downhole lubrication and developed what the company feels is a game-changing product. Read more

Huffington Post – ProOne’s ProFlow is the paradigm shift that ends this insufficient cycle in well production.

Always keeping my ear to the ground, I recently caught wind of a supposed breakthrough technology within the oil and gas sector. After sixty years of literally no innovation related to increased oil production, the name Scott Rettberg came to life—so I took a further look. Touted as disruptive, which always gets my attention, I soon found my way to Rettberg, who is the Founder and inventor of ProFlow, a unique and highly effective production stimulant for the oil and gas industryAt first impression, Rettberg comes across as a larger than life. His peers describe him as a cross between Wyatt Earp and Tony Stark, Rettberg’s arrogance supplants confidence like a brick through a windshield, but perhaps his bravado has been earned like all the great innovators of our time. My first question to Rettberg was, “What makes this technology disruptive?” His answer, “You’re looking at it,” poised in his cowboy boots, diamond watch, and a mouth full of tobacco. Read more

ProOne Attends the 2016 Permian Basin International Oil Show

On October 18-20th 2016, ProOne attended The Permian Basin International Oil Show. This is the place to be to stay on top of the latest product developments, services and technologies. Maximizing the ROI is more important than ever to keep our industry vital and vibrant.

The focus has always been on the mechanics, and more recently, software. However, over the past century there is one tool that has received very little faith in the industry. Once thought not powerful enough to make any considerable contribution and be cost effective in savings …drilling fluids. Read more

Oil Production Efficiency – Overlooked Mud Additive Technology Gets a Resurrection

Key Strategies That Will Put You Ahead

What went wrong? The oil collapse has left a graveyard of devastation in its wake. From December 2014 to December 2015, an estimated 288,000 Texas jobs have been lost. That includes an estimated 72,000 direct oil and gas jobs and 210-220,000 indirect/induced jobs, according to Karr Ingham, a petroleum economist for the Texas Alliance of Energy. Thousands more were lost in other shale-plays not to mention service businesses in towns reliant on the oil boom.

In a land of untrustworthy forecasting trends it’s difficult to take any leading experts advice on a commodity that affects the livelihood of many Americans and some shale producers won’t start production back online until prices are higher. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. “We can’t control the commodity prices, be we can control the efficiency of our wells,” said Ben Mathis, Statoil’s Eagleford operations manager. “The industry has taken this is as a wake-up call to get more efficient or get out.” Read more
