“Glori Energy’s technology revives oil fields with depleting production volumes, reclaiming oil at a fraction of the cost of drilling new wells,” said Kevin Skillern, GE Energy Financial Services’ Managing Director of Venture Capital and representative of Energy Technology Ventures. “Energy Technology Ventures brings deep oil industry expertise and reach to help accelerate the commercialization of Glori Energy’s technology and achieve the scale required to significantly benefit consumers and the economy.”

Conventional oilfield technology typically extracts only one-third of all discovered oil, leaving significant crude underground. Glori Energy’s technology, the AERO™ (Activated Environment for Recovery of Oil) System, may extract an additional 30-45 percent beyond that obtained from traditional processes. The most common method to enhance oil retrieval following primary recovery is termed waterflooding, which entails injecting water into wells to maintain or increase reservoir pressure. This process is limited in effect because oil is more viscous than water and is bypassed as water flows through the rock matrix. Glori Energy’s methodology introduces a customized mix of safe nutrients into waterflooded oil fields to stimulate the growth of indigenous microbes which temporarily modify the fluid pathways to redirect water and improve oil mobility.

“Glori Energy customizes its treatments to optimize the microbiology of each oil field. This is the key to our ability to extract substantial crude oil from wells at low cost,” said Stuart Page, CEO of Glori Energy. “With oil remaining part of the energy mix for the foreseeable future, our technology increases production from mature fields without having to drill a single new well.”

Oil is among the strategic interests of Energy Technology Ventures, which helps companies develop and commercialize their next-generation energy technologies. GE Energy Financial Services’ activities include $3.5 billion equity in oil and gas assets since 1991. This complements GE Oil & Gas’ global leadership in advanced technology equipment and services. ConocoPhillips, meanwhile, is the fourth-largest refiner in the world and the seventh-largest reserves holder of nongovernment-controlled companies and is known worldwide for its technological expertise in reservoir management and exploration. Among other advanced technology initiatives, NRG Energy is exploring the use of captured carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants for use in enhanced oil recovery.

Additional financial details on Energy Technology Ventures’ investment in Glori Energy were not disclosed.
