HOUSTON, Aug 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — via PRWEB – Propell Technologies Group (OTCQB:PROP), the exclusive US licensee of a plasma pulse technology for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) today announced the successful treatment of two of Miller Energy Resources’ (NYSE:MILL) wells using their new U.S. engineered Plasma Pulse tool.
The treatment took place in Morgan and Scott counties in Tennessee on the Hannah Heirs #4 and Henry Bowling #1 wells, both of which have open-hole completions. The treatments were made by the U.S. Propell team who observed substantial increases in fluid levels on both wells immediately after treatment.
This recent news is in addition to the following milestones achieved during the second quarter of 2014:
— Elimination of all short-term convertible debt primarily through early repayment and partially through conversion
— Consummation of financing of the sale of fixed price common stock with warrants with proceeds to the Company of in excess of $1,000,000
— Commencement of full commercial stage
In the second quarter of 2014, the Company derived commercial revenue from its well stimulation business from several U.S. well treatments and has experienced an increase in requests for proposals for potential bookings for new treatments.
With the receipt of a redesigned and optimized single-wire line tool and commencement of full commercial sales, the Company expects accelerated revenue growth due to its ability to treat additional types of wells with its streamlined and universally compatible treatment process.
As highlighted above, the Company has strengthened its balance sheet though early repayment of most of its short-term debt preventing further share dilution and converted the remainder, eliminating all short-term convertible debt. In addition, the Company’s cash runway is now stronger with the recent financing in which it raised in excess of $1,000,000.
The Company believes it now has the financial flexibility to expand its commercial efforts and grow treatment sales.
“With the receipt of our redesigned and optimized U.S. tool along with a stronger balance sheet we expect to now be able to strike contracts with significant operators like Miller Energy and enter into strategic sales relationships with influential channel partners,” commented John Huemoeller II, President and CEO. “We expect this successful treatment of Miller Energy’s wells to be the first of many using our new tool.”
