Learn How This Enhanced Oil Recovery Technology Resulted In +30% Daily Production

Oil Recovery Tool

A Q&A Session with HAI Technologies

Learn more about ORT Oil Recovery Tool


The oil and gas industry has been accelerating its efforts to produce hydrocarbons, while also reducing the carbon footprint per barrel produced.

Operators can now deploy a proven and cost-effective Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) technology to increase production, reserves and injectivity in a wide variety of mature fields with less impact on the environment.

In this Q&A session with HAI Technologies President Kevin Blackman and Chief Development Officer John Benton, they will explain why the patented technology Oil Recovery Tool (ORT) is considered as “The Greenest BarrelTM”. They will demonstrate the impact of the technology by showing the results of a trial that has been on-going for 17 months in the Permian basin: an increase in daily oil production of +30%!

ORT is a simple, rugged, well-designed system that uses very low frequency sound technology to recover additional oil from developed oilfields. It was developed and has been successfully deployed by Hydroacoustics Inc., leveraging its 50+ years of experience in acoustic technology.

Drawing from his over 25 years of experience in the energy industry (19 of which has been with Shell), TechnologyCatalogue.com Co-Founder and CEO Erik Nijveld will join the discussion and ask initial questions on how this tool is helping oil producers navigate the Energy Transition.

So, join the conversation on 27 October, 4pm CET, and ask your questions on how ORT offers a cleaner, more sustainable energy solution to oil companies globally.
