Commercial deployment in Turkmenistan


Graphene NanoChem (AIM:GRPH), the international provider of nanotechnology performance enhancing solutions for global industries, is pleased to announce that the Group has received a firm commitment for the deployment of PlatSurF, its oilfield recovery additive, from a Middle Eastern oil and gas company. The client will be using PlatSurF to improve production from its existing oil wells in Turkmenistan.




§ New commercial territory entered in Turkmenistan

§ Latest PlatSurF win follows the successful deployment in Myanmar, as previously announced, and is considered testament to the quality of product range

§ First purchase order valued at US$118,800 - deployed for use in 1 trial oil well

§ The client has oil well rejuvenation needs for up to 110 oil wells


PlatSurF, a nano-emulsion fluid, is used to remove residues, remediate oil blockages and improve hydrocarbon flow passages in open-hole or cased-hole drilling. It can be used in previously damaged oil wells in order to improve production rates by reducing wastes and residues generation.


The first commercial order received for the trial, valued at US$118,800, will be deployed for use in one oil well in Q2 2017. The client has oil well rejuvenation needs for up to 110 oil wells in Turkmenistan and, upon successful trial, the Group shall commence negotiations for further purchase orders for the balance of their oil wells for utilisation over the next 12 - 24 months.


Jespal Deol, Chief Executive Officer of Graphene NanoChem, commented: "Our latest commercial win is a further testament to the commercial benefits and quality of our products range. This new contract marks another significant milestone for the Group as we continue to gain market validation and traction for our products."
