Potential for drilling efficiency offered as industry continues to ramp up
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BlueFire Equipment Corporation (OTCQB:BLFR) announced today that its new Permian Basin agent Tom Willis is working closely with area drillers regarding the company's proprietary polycrystalline diamond cutter (PDC) drill bit technology.
As reported by the Department of Energy, U.S. oil production for the week ended August 9, 2013 averaged 7.57 million barrels per day. That is the highest output of U.S. crude in any week since November, 1989, nearly 24 years ago.
In just the last two years oil production in the U.S. has increased by more than 2 million barrels per day (and by 36.2%), from 5.56 million barrels per day during the first week of August, 2011 to 7.57 million barrels per day for the same week in 2013. It took more than 20 years for U.S. oil output to gradually decline by 2 million barrels per day between 1989 and 2011, and then only 24 months to completely reverse this multi-decade decline.
Willis said, "This explosive growth is responsible for the resurgence in this area and will encourage even more activity in the months ahead. We are committed to developing a strong business presence in the Permian Basin to meet the needs of oil and gas companies seeking new technology."
As previously announced, BlueFire's proprietary PDC drill bit may provide much faster and longer drilling, without the need to stop and pull the entire drill pipe out of the well to replace a spent bit. According to company findings, some wells can be drilled using a BlueFire bit without a single bit change, potentially saving drillers considerable time and money.
