The Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) is a non-profit corporation established to help meet the nation’s growing need for hydrocarbon resources produced from reservoirs in America.
RPSEA is a non-profit corporation formed by a consortium of premier U.S. energy research universities, industry and independent research organizations. RPSEA’s mission is to provide a stewardship role in ensuring the focused research, development and deployment of safe, environmentally sensitive technology that can effectively deliver hydrocarbons from domestic resources to the citizens of the United States.
RPSEA / EnerPol Partnership:
In 2010, DaniMer Scientific (an EnerPol partner) received a contract for $846,828 to develop an environmentally-friendly hydraulic fracturing treatment for hydrocarbon production (SqueezeFrac). The scope of work included product development, laboratory and large-scale testing, and computer simulations. The contracted work was completed in 2012, and the results were published in SPE 152189. A summary of the project can be found here. The final project report can be found here.
In 2012, DaniMer Scientific, EnerPol, CSI Technologies, Texas A&M University, Ampak Oil, and the Petroleum Technology Transfer Council received another RPSEA contract to field test the SqueezeFrac treatment. The work for that project will be carried out in 2013, and as a result, EnerPol is actively seeking oil / gas operating partners for field testing. While field testing is in progress, the stimulation treatment can be performed a low / no cost to the operator.
