BlueFire Team Collaborates with Prospective Oil and Gas Clients in Midland Area

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BlueFire Equipment Corporation (OTCQB: BLFR) announced today that it has commenced talks with exploration and production companies in the Midland, Texas, area regarding its proprietary polycrystalline diamond cutter (PDC) drill bit technology.

As reported by Nicholas Sakelaris, Staff Writer for Dallas Business Journal, Texas oil producers pumped more oil in recent months than many countries, ranking it with the likes of Kuwait and Venezuela. This was partly due to the production in the Permian Basin, also called the West Texas Basin, where Midland is located.

Chairman and CEO of BlueFire Equipment Corporation William A. Blackwell said, "Midland has always been an oil town, and now it is experiencing a resurgence of growth and prosperity." He added, "The BlueFire team looks forward to cultivating long term relationships and introducing our PDC drill bit technology in the Permian Basin."

BlueFire's exclusive design has the ability to provide higher rates of penetration (ROP) and longer bit runs in hard rock formations and shales, representing a breakthrough in drilling technology.

In order to improve performance and reduce drilling cost per foot, BlueFire bits employ large cutter face volumes for rapid drilling of shales, sandstones, limestones and sticky clays. These bits utilize premium PDC cutters for improved ROP and are designed with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) directed ports to accelerate cleaning and optimize cooling of large diameter PDC cutters. Company findings indicate a decrease of more than 30 percent in temperature on the cutting surfaces, drastically reducing cutter wear and extending the life of the bit.

Conventional bits use nozzles that eject drilling fluid into the bottom of the wellbore resulting in a general application and uneven distribution at the point of contact. BlueFire's bit design employs strategically aligned nozzles to concentrate high-pressure jet streams directly on the cutting edge, lubricating the interface between the cutters and the rock formation being drilled. Furthermore, improved cleaning and scouring action facilitates the removal of cuttings. The result is a bit that runs cleaner and cooler.
