Modified fuel helps lower exhaust emissions to overcome soot, nitrogen oxide reduction trade-off

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#NOx--Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) is helping a client develop a simple post-refinery treatment process that reduces exhaust emissions from diesel engines by overcoming the soot/nitrogen oxides (NOx) reduction trade-off that has plagued engine researchers for decades. The result is a modified fuel that potentially could replace today’s ultra-low sulfur diesel, biodiesel and other renewable diesel fuels.

The modified fuel reduces soot production without increasing NOx and without requiring engine design or calibration changes.

Although engine manufacturers routinely develop cleaner engines for new vehicles, older model vehicles continue to contribute heavily to pollution levels. This new modified fuel could potentially lower exhaust NOx and particulates for both older and newer model diesel engine vehicles.

“While fossil fuels eventually may be replaced by electric powertrains or noncarbon fuels in our lifetime, the process developed with our client could be implemented immediately,” said project manager James Wood, a principal scientist in SwRI’s Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Division.

SwRI designed, built and operated a bench-scale processing plant to produce modified fuel samples for laboratory testing. This internationally patented breakthrough technology introduces a unique low concentration chemical treatment that is combined with a specialized mechanical mixing system that produces a treated diesel fuel that is stable for long periods of time. This establishes a blend-in process that easily modifies the fuel. The specimens demonstrated conformance to ASTM physical, mechanical, rheological, thermal and chemical fuel requirements.

SwRI’s Powertrain Engineering Division evaluated the fuels during steady-state and transient engine emissions testing according to Environmental Protection Agency test procedures. “The modified fuel resulted in a substantial reduction in soot mass emissions compared to the baseline ultra-low sulfur diesel,” said Dr. Imad Khalek, a senior program manager who operates SwRI’s particulate laboratory.

Based on the bench-scale plant, SwRI helped design a production-scale facility that meets ASTM International and ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standards and is capable of processing 12,000 barrels per day (150 million gallons per year).

Energy experts explore the financial pathways that will put hydrogen on a profitable trajectory as markets focus on decarbonization

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The global energy industry is looking to green hydrogen, a carbonless fuel generated with renewable energy, as essential on the road to decarbonization and climate neutrality. Given the scale of the investments needed to harness hydrogen’s potential – and the ambiguous costs associated with it – a new eBook from Black & Veatch provides clarity by examining market forces and financial considerations surrounding hydrogen technology.

Offered as a free download, 2021: Market Dynamics of Hydrogen navigates the financial pathways that will put hydrogen on a viable, profitable trajectory.

Hydrogen can complement – and even accelerate – the integration of renewable energy and electrification. It also can provide technologically and financially viable pathways as a zero-carbon fuel, feedstock and energy carrier while serving as a method of energy storage.

While electrification and advancing renewables can play a huge role in decarbonizing the energy sector and downstream users, hydrogen is needed to accelerate these changes and enable lower carbon footprints of energy-intensive applications and emission sources not reasonably abated through other means. Additionally, hydrogen can leverage existing fossil gas infrastructure in that it can be shipped, stored and used as fuel, all without major impacts to the existing value chain.

So with hydrogen boasting such clear advantages, why isn’t the energy industry implementing sweeping changes to adopt it as a solution? Simply put, it’s cost.

“Having yet to achieve meaningful scale or market applications in the industrial, transportation or power generation sectors, clean hydrogen is presently not cost competitive with other forms of fuel without additional incentives,” said Jason Rowell, associate vice president and Black & Veatch’s global decarbonization solutions director with Black & Veatch’s global power business. “As the world continues to deal with the growing impacts of climate change, there is a growing sense of urgency for the industry to understand the market dynamics behind hydrogen technology.”

2021: Market Dynamics of Hydrogen explores how the large-scale adoption of hydrogen will improve the economics of electrification, renewables and hydrogen-based solutions.

“There are multiple paths to our energy future is becoming clearer,” said Deepa Poduval, Black & Veatch’s Global Strategic Advisory practice lead. “Understanding the market dynamics behind hydrogen will help policy makers, energy producers and consumers alike take an active role in making hydrogen a viable low- to no-carbon energy solution in the future.

The ISU BCRF is an integrated research and demonstration facility dedicated to biomass production and processing. This hydrotreater pilot plant will utilize the expertise of both organizations to better understand how various biomass feedstocks can play a role in the production of renewable fuels with a specific focus on renewable diesel.

“This project is a result of our longstanding partnership with Iowa State University, and our joint interest in continuing to position the state of Iowa as a hub for innovation and excellence,” said REG President & CEO, Cynthia (CJ) Warner. “As one of the first biodiesel and renewable diesel producers in the nation, innovating is in our DNA, and having the capability to develop additional feedstock options for our industry will help meet the growing demand for cleaner fuels.”

Renewable diesel is a low-carbon cleaner fuel that, through a catalytic process utilizing heat, pressure and hydrogen, known as hydrotreating, can convert feedstocks into a hydrocarbon fuel that is chemically similar to traditional diesel. Research at this new hydrotreater pilot plant will support REG’s Geismar, Louisiana renewable diesel plant by helping to evaluate new low-carbon feedstocks and optimize production of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

REG’s Geismar, Louisiana renewable diesel production facility was the first renewable diesel production facility located in the U.S. and currently produces 90 million gallons of renewable diesel each year. By 2023, the facility will have the capacity to produce 340 million gallons of renewable diesel through an improvement and expansion project that was announced by REG in 2020. Through the work being done with the hydrotreater pilot plant, REG will continue to build on feedstock abundance for the growing renewable diesel and biodiesel industries.

“ISU is a world-class research institution on the cutting edge of agriculture and biomass utilization, and REG is an industry leader in converting waste biomass to renewable fuels,” said Wendy Wintersteen, President of Iowa State University. “This project is a great collaboration that highlights the commitment to innovation and leverages the strengths of both REG and ISU.”

The pilot plant is a multi-reactor state-of-the-art research and development unit designed by REG’s engineering teams to accelerate the development of new feedstocks and processes. The system is fully automated and configured to run safely and reliably for weeks at a time.

The ribbon cutting event included representatives from REG and ISU, as well as some members of the community. Both President & CEO Warner and President Wintersteen were in attendance at the event.

High power density solar cells eliminate device battery waste and operational replacement costs

MILL VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ambient Photonics and Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) (NASDAQ: UEIC), have entered into a working relationship to significantly reduce the economic and environmental impact of disposable batteries and improve convenience in consumer devices. Embedding Ambient’s first-of-its-kind low light energy harvesting photovoltaic (PV) technology into connected devices can eventually eliminate the replacement and labor costs required to replace batteries as well as reduce the carbon footprint of a battery-powered device by up to 90 percent, according to a 2020 literature review study commissioned by Ambient. The companies plan to reveal more details of their current work together at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We think about smarter living holistically, including everything from how to create frictionless and new consumer experiences to employing technology that’s better for the planet. Ambient’s revolutionary low light PV cells are smarter in every sense of the word, potentially enabling a new generation of hassle-free connected devices of uncompromising quality that are also sustainable,” said Arsham Hatambeiki, SVP Product & Technology for UEI.

Connected and smart electronics require continuous power, which has historically meant batteries must be periodically replaced or recharged. Often depleted batteries may cause gaps in device operation leading to consumer frustration. Safe disposal is a challenge while recycling can be difficult and expensive. Even in markets like California where batteries must be diverted from waste streams by law, less than 1 percent of batteries find their way into authorized recycling programs according to a report commissioned by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.

“As a first-mover and innovator, UEI has thoroughly benchmarked the performance and reliability of our novel solar cells to validate the enormous market potential for self-powered devices,” said Ambient CEO Bates Marshall. “UEI is proactively solving their customers’ battery-related pain points, like eliminating battery replacement. Our planned collaboration can serve to bring both cost savings and sustainability benefits to a market that has been constrained far too long by battery-based power systems.”

Ambient dye sensitized PV cells generate as much as three times more power than amorphous silicon cells, which have served as the most commonly used photovoltaic solution for indoor applications. This unique high power density under LED, fluorescent or diffuse sunlight coupled with a breakthrough industrial printing process enables made-to-order cells for high volume electronic device manufacturers.

RACINE, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cree Lighting today announced an all new canopy lighting solution, the CPY500™ Series. With a modern, innovative design, this fixture provides fuel islands and commercial canopies with category-leading levels of curb appeal, visual comfort, energy efficiency and customer attraction.

Research shows that more than 50% of drivers rank lighting quality high in importance when choosing a gas station (Beard, 2018). The new CPY500™ Series fixture sports an ultra-low-profile design that blends into the canopy, a unique slimline edge-lit bezel to provide “sparkle” that attracts the eye of passing drivers, and overall, sets the new canopy lighting benchmark in visual comfort, light uniformity and ease of installation and service.

“Retail petroleum companies seeking to differentiate their brands are investing in better fuel island experiences, cleaner restrooms and larger convenience store layouts – and lighting plays a central role in all these,” said Erik Milz, Cree Lighting Vice President of Products. “We designed our all-new CPY500™ Series to win the stamp of approval from consumers as well as the company CFO. Our product teams poured breakthrough thinking, the latest technology and deep industry know-how into this new design. With the performance levels achieved, we expect demand will not just come from replacing incandescent systems - it will include retailers with inferior LED canopy fixtures as well.”

The new CPY500™ Series combines an attractive, low-profile form factor, diffused optics and an expansive 11” x 11” edge-to-edge illuminated lens design, providing a 246% larger illuminated surface area than a typical 7” x 7” canopy fixture. The new design was carefully engineered to minimize up-light and spillover, ensuring every lumen is directed where it is needed, resulting in fuel islands bathed in crisp, uniform light with significantly higher visual comfort. Multiple lens and bezel configurations enable owners to fine-tune the lighting experience to their specific requirements and preferences.

Designed from the ground up and rigorously tested, the CPY500™ Series rings the bell on all counts – aesthetics, performance and utility. Delivering up to 165 lumens per watt with superior visual comfort compared to alternatives, the new CPY500™ Series sets a new industry benchmark in efficiency, light distribution, low glare and overall performance, cutting operating costs by more than 65% compared to traditional lighting sources. DLC Premium qualification enables many owners to leverage rebates, which further reduces the cost of updating, making it even easier to justify creating a safer, more efficient and more welcoming environment.

“The CPY500™ Series also sets itself apart with streamlined, labor-saving serviceability for both new construction and retrofit scenarios,” said Milz. “Installation of the CPY500™ Series can be done by one person working below and then above the canopy for wire-up. The components are then easily accessed for inspection or service from below. There’s no need to go topside on the canopy after initial installation.” New construction requires only a 4” hole in the canopy, while retrofit installations are also a breeze. A unique angled driver housing design allows installation even in tight spaces where traditional luminaires cannot be installed because of canopy structural member interference.

Flexibility was built into the portfolio to ensure owners are covered for every situation:

  • An available field-adjustable output option enables on-site fine-tuning from below the canopy to achieve the right light level for the petroleum marketer’s space. Owners can adjust light output using nine brightness presets for maximum flexibility.
  • A 20,000-lumen version extends the CPY500™ Series’ reach to higher canopy mounts.
  • Sites in even the most ordinance-restricted areas are covered with a choice of 5700K, 5000K, 4000K and 3000K color temperatures.
  • Site owners can choose from three choices of color rendition. 70 CRI is standard, with optional 80 and 90 CRI versions available.

The CPY500™ Series LED canopy luminaire is now available for order through Cree Lighting® petroleum sales channels throughout North and South America. To learn more about this breakthrough luminaire, please visit

LITTLE RIVER, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PCT LTD (PCTL Pink) is pleased to announce that it has acquired rights to a novel liquid- and gaseous-delivery technology developed by Colorado-based Onza Corporation ( The patent-pending technology will allow PCT ( to convert its proprietary hypochlorous acid into a dry crystal, making it much simpler to handle and ship while still maintaining all its inherent qualities. On arrival to customers, it can be easily converted back to liquid form, which means that its normal 30-day active life can be extended until needed.

Gary Grieco, CEO and Chairman of PCT LTD stated, “Shipping costs and shelf life have been real limiting factors for the expansion of our fluid sales. Incorporating this technology to essentially eliminate fluid weight and greatly extend the shelf life is a game changer!”

This new cost-cutting delivery method for efficacious but unstable compounds like chlorine dioxide and hypochlorous acid opens the door to several new uses and applications for these compounds while greatly expanding current markets. Without this technology, these compounds must be produced onsite for immediate use. The half-life of chlorine dioxide, for example, is short; depending on conditions, it may be as short as a few minutes.

Onza is a technology company based in Colorado that has also applied its platform technology to successfully stabilize ozone gas into a solid, stable matrix. The company has been successful in crystalizing and shipping efficacious amounts of ozone for use weeks later. Bacterial testing using the crystalized compound conducted at a leading US medical university verified high-killing assays against E. Coli. A third-party testing was carried out at an ISO-17025 accredited laboratory has shown killing of many other common food-borne pathogens. All results were repeatable across organisms and production batches.

PCT LTD has negotiated exclusive rights for any application with respect to crystalized hypochlorous acid and exclusive medical applications for crystalized chlorine dioxide. Market study and cost analysis plans are being formulated for both compounds to be tested in multiple applications and scenarios.

About PCT LTD:

PCT LTD ("PCTL") focuses its business on acquiring, developing and providing sustainable, environmentally safe disinfecting, cleaning and tracking technologies. The company acquires and holds rights to innovative products and technologies, which are commercialized through its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Paradigm Convergence Technologies Corporation (PCT Corp). The Company established entry into its target markets with commercially viable products in the United States and now continues to gain market share in the U.S. and U.K.

OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Navis, the provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for leading organizations throughout the global shipping industry, announced that it has gone live with Master Terminal by Navis at Inter Modal Logistic (IML) Milano Segrate Terminal (Ignazio Messina & C SpA), a long-time Master Terminal customer. Milano Segrate is in the process of upgrading its inland and intermodal terminals to integrate with Intermodal Marine Terminal in the Port of Genoa which has operated on the TOS for more than 10 years. IML - Milano Segrate is Messina’s first intermodal terminal to go live on Master Terminal with future plans to expand to the Vicenza and Dinazzano inland terminals.

IML - Milano Segrate, an intermodal container depot that operates at 100,000 TEU annually, receives cargo from Genoa by train and distributes across Belgium, Holland, Germany and southern Italy. Having direct connectivity with and operating on the same system as its Genoa facility allows the Milano team to better track operations, gain better control over yard and terminal handling moves, optimize storage planning and scale EDI capabilities across multiple Messina terminals.

The three-month implementation was aided by staffers at the Genoa terminal who spearheaded training for gate clerks, yard supervisors, and yard planners at Milano alongside Navis who provided advanced training and go-live support.

“Our Milano team was relying on manual spreadsheets for storage planning and had challenges tracking containers before we implemented Master Terminal,” said Ignazio Messina, CEO of Ignazio Messina & C. SpA. “Shipping and logistics need integrated IT solutions like Master Terminal to address inefficiencies. It offers a commercial advantage that we look forward to adding throughout our company to gain the same insights we have in Milano and Genoa.”

The Master Terminal operating system provides an integrated, real-time view of all operations and data at any marine or inland terminal to enhance productivity and operational efficiency via data-driven decision making. The customizable operating system helps manage general and mixed cargo with intermodal capabilities.

“Since Genoa was already using Master Terminal, it was a quick and seamless implementation in Milano,” said Jacques Marchetti, General Manager, EMEA at Navis. “Improving yard operations was one of the biggest priorities on this project and as Messina terminals continue to integrate Master Terminal, crews will become even more efficient.”

The headquarters relocation and personnel expansion will support Sustainable Oils target of contract-growing more than one million acres of camelina annually for renewable diesel production

GREAT FALLS, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: GCEH) today announced that Sustainable Oils, Inc., its camelina feedstock subsidiary, is relocating its North American headquarters to a new state-of-the-art facility in Great Falls, Montana. This new facility will consolidate Sustainable Oils crop innovation programs, commercial grower support and executive and administrative activities at one location and will be fully operational by November 1, 2021.

The new facility and the additions to its technical and commercial teams will support Sustainable Oils Camelina breeding and development program and Sustainable Oils’ goal of cultivating over one million acres of camelina to produce low carbon intensity, nonfood feedstock to be used at GCEH’s renewable diesel refinery in Bakersfield, California. Under its crop innovation and breeding programs, Sustainable Oils continues to increase the commercial value of camelina through agronomics and improved plant genetics to increase overall yield, modify plant oil chemistry to enhance biorefinery efficiency and improve livestock feed qualities.

“We have aggressive expansion plans for camelina production with our goal of over one million acres of annual production projected at market maturity, and Great Falls is an excellent location for our headquarters as it is the anchor of Montana’s agricultural ‘Golden Triangle,’” stated Mike Karst, President of Sustainable Oils. “While this is a large target for us, we believe it is a positive revenue generator for our contract growers as it will generate over $250 million per year of additional revenue to them and their rural communities.”

“Camelina is an integral part of the feedstock plan for GCEH’s vertically integrated farm-to-fuels strategy, to produce renewable diesel at its refinery in Bakersfield, California, and beyond. Our Camelina varieties have been approved through California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard program, which adds significant value to the camelina oil,” said Richard Palmer, CEO of GCEH. “We will continue to invest heavily in the science, grower education and the necessary grain logistical systems to make it a success in Montana and other states in the Western United States.”

Sustainable Oils maintains a large intellectual property portfolio of camelina, including various patented varieties. With a short growing cycle and excellent water efficiency, Sustainable Oils’ patented varieties exhibit superior agronomic performance and increased tolerance to both drought and frost versus alternative crops. Sustainable Oils’ Camelina also produces higher oil content and has the lowest carbon intensity score of any plant-based renewable diesel feedstock alternatives. Renewable diesel made from Sustainable Oils’ Camelina is a high-demand drop-in fuel that meets all specifications for today’s engines, which makes it the cropped feedstock of choice for renewable diesel production.

About Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc.

Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (“GCEH”) is a uniquely positioned vertically integrated renewable fuels company. GCEH’s strategy since the inception of its business has been to control the full integration of the entire biofuels supply chain from the development, production, processing, and transportation of feedstocks through to the refining and distribution of renewable fuels. GCEH is retooling and constructing its renewable diesel refinery in Bakersfield, California, which when completed in early 2022, will be the largest renewable fuels facility in the western United States and the largest in the country that produces renewable fuels from nonfood based feedstocks. More information can be found online at

This presentation describes the Company’s business strategy, unique industry position and environment, history, and general pertinent information. The presentation will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and uploaded on the Company’s website.

The new collaboration plans to leverage Nuvve’s technology and Stonepeak’s and Evolve’s capital through Levo to offer fully financed, V2G-enabled BYD medium- and heavy-duty electric fleet vehicles

LOS ANGELES & SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BYD, the world leader in electric vehicles, and Levo Mobility LLC (“Levo”), a joint venture of Nuvve Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: NVVE) (“Nuvve”), affiliates of Stonepeak Partners LP (“Stonepeak”), and Evolve Transition Infrastructure LP (NYSE American: SNMP) (“Evolve”) that provides Fleet-as-a-Service (“FaaS”) solutions enabling fleets to switch to electric vehicles (“EVs”) rapidly, today announced a collaboration to integrate Nuvve’s leading vehicle-to-grid (“V2G”) technology with a mix of BYD battery electric vehicles (“BEVs”) and plans for joint deployment of up to 5,000 BEVs over the next five years.

“The BYD-Levo collaboration has the potential to accelerate and transform the transportation sector at a critical time,” said BYD Motors President, Stella Li. “This innovative potential partnership leverages state-of-the-art BYD and Nuvve technologies and will provide access to Stonepeak’s financing, which will lower the cost of medium- and heavy-duty battery electric vehicle adoption for fleets of all types including mass transit, municipalities, last mile delivery and school districts.”

Nuvve’s proprietary V2G technology utilizes high-powered bidirectional charging stations, which not only charge the batteries but also discharge energy from the batteries back into the power grid as needed to help balance temporary spikes in electricity demand. Utilizing Nuvve’s bidirectional charging stations and proprietary software, the BEVs can act as energy storage assets discharging megawatts of capacity to the grid and performing other services that help stabilize the grid and prevent blackouts while ensuring that each BEV has enough charge for the next trip. In addition to saving electric fleets money by charging when utility rates are low, Nuvve’s platform also enables revenue opportunities from these grid services.

Through a preferred financing partnership with BYD, Levo intends to purchase up to 5,000 medium and heavy duty V2G-enabled BEVs over five years that may include transit buses and coaches, yard tractors, drayage and refuse trucks, last mile delivery vehicles and school buses.

Levo's comprehensive offering streamlines electrification by providing fleet owners and operators with a turnkey solution that includes electric vehicles, associated charging infrastructure and energy management powered by Nuvve, maintenance, site planning, and more. These services are provided to customers for a fixed monthly payment with no upfront cost.

“Our collaboration with BYD continues the momentum of transportation electrification that Nuvve is passionate about,” said Gregory Poilasne, Chairman and CEO of Nuvve and Chairman of Levo Mobility. “By integrating our V2G platform with a variety of medium and heavy-duty electric fleets, we can introduce these vehicles to the grid in a much more intelligent and sustainable way, help integrate more renewable energy sources, and ultimately accelerate the reduction of harmful CO2 emissions.”

“We are very pleased to foster a fantastic working relationship with Levo, Nuvve, and Stonepeak,” said Sam Kang, BYD’s head of Total Solutions. “This partnership would provide a much-needed financing solution and the world’s leading V2G platform to catalyze the electrification initiative. Ultimately, this will reduce substantial carbon emissions so we can all have a breath of fresh air.”

“With over $20B in revenue and more than 65k electric buses deployed worldwide, BYD is a giant in electric mobility – we are thrilled to announce Levo’s partnership with BYD as its preferred financing partner,” said Trent Kososki, Managing Director at Stonepeak. “Our joint efforts aim to rapidly accelerate deployments of safe, cost-effective and environmentally friendly electric transportation solutions leveraging Levo’s fully-financed solution. BYD’s customers now have a means to avoid up-front costs and immediately enjoy the immense benefits of electric vehicles including immediate, day one fuel and maintenance savings.”

United Energy announces it has signed a purchase agreement for a 140-mile natural gas pipeline in Wagoner County, Oklahoma, formerly owned by Red Fork Energy. This asset has 140+ miles of 3” to 16” transmission lines, including a 12” steel pipeline – capacity up to 20,000 MCFGD and comprises 5,000+ acres leasehold, and 89 company-owned wells with substantial Woodford Shale development opportunities. Closing is expected in October pending final due diligence.

“Natural Gas midstream assets are true gems in the current environment. Acquisition of the Wagoner Pipeline also opens numerous opportunities for stranded gas that hasn’t been able to capitalize on current commodity prices.” Brian Guinn, CEO of United Energy Corporation

August 2021 UNRG announced the acquisition of a strategic asset combination in the Cherokee Basin, located in Northeastern Oklahoma and Southeastern Kansas. The Company purchased Entransco Energy, LLC, serving as the Company’s licensed Operator in Oklahoma and Kansas, adding 250+ Coalbed Methane Gas (CBM) wells, 32,000 acres, 118 miles of pipeline and related oil and gas assets to its portfolio.

In addition, UNRG acquired 80 wells and 10,000 acres of CBM-producing wells from Montclair Energy – a project formerly known as ROCCS, the Rogers County Coal Seam Project.

The Entransco acquisition also included 49% ownership in an additional 200,000 acres of non-operated oil and gas leases, 2,200+ wells and 1,000+ miles of natural gas pipelines formerly owned by Constellation Energy Partners and Newfield Exploration.

UNRG forecasts 2,500+ MCFGD within Q4 and another 2,000+ MCFGD with the reactivation of the Wagoner Pipeline.

UNRG will soon be rolling out a proprietary well-pumping solution for the production of CBM wells. This innovative pump dramatically reduces operating costs of water-producing wells, eliminating the surface pump jack and many high-maintenance pumping expenses that have burdened previous operators.

“We’re on a mission. We’ll be one of the top 3 largest operators in the Cherokee Basin before year-end.” Brian Guinn
