Revelant Holdings LLC is a Houston based materials science company deploying our proprietary processes to change the fluid properties of oil and water. The company invests heavily in Research and Development which in turn drives our intellectual property portfolio. In addition to its own technology development laboratory located in Fort Collins, Colorado, Revelant has a master services agreement with Colorado State University to perform fundamental research.
Oil and Gas production optimization can be defined as a fundamental practice ensuring recovery of developed reserves while maximizing profits. Profit maximization, in turn, is the capability of an operator to earn the maximum profit white minimizing cost. In financial management, profit maximization is the process which increases the earnings per share of the business. Simplistically, the financial performance of a particular oil well is influenced by the characteristics of the well and reservoir such as pressure, well productivity, depth, diameter of the well, and physical properties of the fluids.
Oil properties such as API gravity, cloud point, pour point, paraffin content, asphaltene content, and viscosity affect well profitability. Water properties also impact profitability due to scale, corrosion, and disposal costs. Lastly, gas can be corrosive as well as effect pumping efficiency. When these three types of fluids comingle, emulsions can also be problematic and thus affect production volumes and remediation costs.
Historically, on-going chemical programs have been employed to improve well profitability. Unfortunately, chemical programs are costly, do not end, and do not always yield the desired results, hence the need for hot oiling, knife cutting, or other costly workover techniques.
Revelant is where production optimization and lattice dynamics intersect. Let's change gears and discuss lattice dynamics which are produced by motions of the atoms in a crystal or more generally, any solid material.
Revelant understands lattice dynamics and has a complete picture of solid materials (including pure crystals, salts, and alloys), and indeed of amorphous materials, too. Understanding lattices dynamics is important for several key applications. The propagation of sound waves in crystals is a practical example of the role of lattice dynamics like the absorption of certain frequencies is directly due to the existence of specific motions of a solid lattice. Lattice dynamics also gives us properties such as superconductivity, thermal conductivity, and thermal expansion. In the study of lattice dynamics, atomic motions are frequently found to be adequately described as harmonic travelling waves. Each wave can be fully characterized in terms of its wavelength, angular frequency, amplitude and direction of travel. Therefore, it is possible to take advantage of properties of waves including constructive and deconstructive interference which provides access to the filtering of frequencies from a broadband source.
Revelant's technology lies at the intersection of production optimization and lattice dynamics. The lattice vibrations of the different materials used by Revelant guide or control crystal polymorphism in oil and water.
The Revelant materials are not magnetic or nuclear, they do not use radio frequency, they are not "charged" nor are they externally powered. They absorb the energy of the surrounding environment and filter specific frequencies of the energy source. The filtered frequencies are transmitted and drive changes in the physical characteristics of the well fluids. In this way, the materials affect the way that molecules in the fluids vibrate and changing molecular-level vibrations affects how molecules interact with one another.
The results are production at a lower cost because paraffin commonly remains soluble, asphaltenes continue to be dispersed, calcium carbonate crystal polymorphs change and/or remain more soluble, and the oil/water interfacial tension is changed affecting emulsions, oil carryover, and tank bottoms.
March 4th 2021, Lotus Operating Co LLC ran in a 35 BPD Revelant Avenger Tool to combat thick oil and paraffin. "We've eliminated all paraffin solvents, xylene and demulsifier chemical treatments. The fluid at the bleeder doesn't look syrup anymore and looks like what oil should look like. Back in Nov 2020 we ran Revelant's 5 BPD and 10 BPD ... tools in two other wells in southern Barber Co., KS with the same results. An unbelievably great product!"
