"We are continuing to make solid progress in preparing for deployment of the AERO System in our East Texas Coke field," said Glori President and Chief Executive Officer
"Concurrent with the initial AERO implementation, we are making good progress with unitization of the Coke field, which will be required to fully deploy AERO technology across the field. We currently expect to complete the unitization process in early second quarter," Page said.
"We continue to look for field acquisition opportunities that are good candidates for implementation of our AERO technology and currently have several under evaluation. We are exercising patience as this rapidly changing market continues to evolve and believe we will see improving opportunities to capitalize on lower valuations for our next field acquisition.
"This lower oil price environment also presents opportunities for our Services Segment as oil producers look for low-cost and low-risk strategies to increase production, reduce decline curves and extend the life of their field. Although the energy industry is currently undergoing tremendous turmoil, which can cause short term paralysis, we believe lower oil prices will ultimately drive greater adoption of our patented technology," Page added.
Fourth Quarter 2014 Update
The Coke field performed slightly above our expectations in the fourth quarter. Our total production for the quarter was 525 net barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOE/D"), up from 502 net BOE/D in the third quarter of 2014. This increase is the result of investments we made in well maintenance projects that were completed during the third quarter. We had oil swaps in place covering approximately 52% of our fourth quarter production at a price of
