Oil innovation company chosen as North American winner for biosurfactant solutions that improve financial stability and sustainability
As operators search for new oilfield chemistries, S&P Global Platts is recognizing biosurfactants as a top green technology that can improve sustainability, increase profitability of current well operations and minimize new drilling. The solutions were developed by Locus Bio-Energy Solutions, which has been named a finalist in the 2020 S&P Global Energy Awards for two categories: “Rising Star Company” and “Emerging Technology of the Year”.
SUSTAIN is the newest addition to Locus BE’s portfolio of award-winning biosurfactant solutions for upstream oil applications, which have received global recognition for their ability to maximize production, cut costs and help operators do more with less.
Locus Bio-Energy Solutions™ (Locus BE) has received ISO 9001 accreditation for the proprietary fermentation processes used to produce its award-winning biosurfactants for oilfield applications.
As operators scramble to cut costs, the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC)—which oversees all oil & gas operations in the state, including the top U.S. oil producing Permian Basin—voted to approve a new 10-year H13 tax credit for use of a green EOR technology. Known as the AssurEOR program and developed by Houston-based oil innovation start-up Locus Bio-Energy Solutions, the biosurfactant treatments are the first cost-effective and environmentally friendly products proven to sustainably increase oil production by 40% or more and extend the lifespan of declining wells—boosting revenue and financial stability.
