HOUSTON—U.S. shale plays have undoubtedly transformed the oil and gas sector, sending production to new highs. But looking at recovery rates, everyone knows it could be better.

Eyeing recovery factors between 5% and 10% for some shale wells, Comitt Well Solutions—an oil and gas startup based in the Houston suburb of Katy, Texas—found a niche to attack. Eivind Moen, the company’s co-founder and business development manager, told a roomful of people gathered at Rice University that the company decided to focus on downhole tool technologies to increase recovery. Its first product targeted the refracturing market.

The intervention tool, called Excite, allows users to pinpoint a fracture and restimulation of existing and newly added perforation clusters.

Vor fünf Jahren in Erlangen gegründet

Begonnen hat FLC Flowcastings in Trebur vor vier Jahren mit 21 Mitarbeitern, derzeit sind es 45. Eine Verdopplung ist für nächstes Jahr geplant.

Mit dem Umzug in die neu gebaute Halle stehen FLC dann 5500 Qudratmeter Fläche zur Verfügung, fast doppelt so viel wie jetzt.

In einem Jahr soll mit 24 CNC-Fräsern und zwei Gießöfen gearbeitet werden. (dev)
