Locus Bio-Energy Solutions, an oil field biochemical startup, announced Monday that Jonathan Rogers will lead the company as its first CEO. His first order of business will be to move the company’s headquarters to Houston by year’s end.
Jon Rogers, a highly respected global oilfield executive who served in senior roles at BP and Clariant, has been named CEO of Locus Bio-Energy Solutions™ (Locus Bio-Energy), a disruptive technology company whose unique bio-chemical based production and drilling fluid chemistries are increasing oil production and safety, and attracting top industry talent.
Using fresh, customizable “probiotic” treatments to increase crop productivity from the ground up has quickly become a primary strategy for growers across the country—and the trend is now expanding into organic agriculture. Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) recently approved an organic formulation of Rhizolizer™, a line of non-GMO microbial soil amendments that has proven to be highly successful in increasing yields and reducing time to harvest. The unique treatments, which were developed by Locus Agricultural Solutions™, LLC (Locus AG), have drastically improved the vitality of more than 40,000 acres of crops, leading to demand for organic offerings.
The nation’s oil industry is placing high priority on recognizing innovative technologies that address two of its biggest challenges—safety and the decline curve. A new, customizable treatment program, known as the AssurEOR line, continues to be highlighted as a solution. Developed by Locus Bio-Energy Solutions™ for use in upstream applications, these customized products have shown impressive results in improving production and safety, leading to features in national industry publications, finalist placement in the World Oil Awards and presentations at regional and national conferences. Most recently, experts were asked to present the technology as one of 15 presentations at Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co.’s (THP) exclusive, invitation-only Energy Disruption Conference, which showcases disruptive innovations that are reshaping the oil and gas industry.
Finalists for the 2018 World Oil Awards have been announced, and Locus Bio-Energy Solutions, LLC’s (Locus Bio-Energy) AssurEOR product line was chosen for its advancements in the production chemicals category. The prestigious awards, developed by World Oil and Gulf Energy Information, honor leading innovations in upstream oil applications that are positively impacting the industry. The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala in Houston on October 11.
