Development of patented Hydrogen/Oxygen Downhole Steam Generator to recover light oil from old plugged out old "giant" oil and gas fields. I worked as an independent landman,developed prospects with geologist, leased for my own account,raised the capital from qualified investors,caused the well to be drilled and generally plugged the mostly rank wildcats I drilled. Developed differential Lidar with Ophir Denver,Co.and first to directly detect ethane in atmosphere indicative of subsurface liquid oil deposit. Developed first portable skid mounted Syngas Plants utilizing CH4 with HydroChem, Atlanta, Ga., formerly engineers at Howe-Baker, Tyler, Texas now owned by Linde, Houston, a division of Air Liquide. Converted natural gas at oil and gas field to MeOH to eliminate pipelines to sell gas cap gas or or associated gas on oil column. Otained world license for small plants to OCTAMIX from Lurgi GmbH,Frankfort. Octamix is a C1-C8 mixed alcohol made by Production of synthesis gas by steam reforming natural gas and is a high octane blending agent for gasoline and oxygenate to reduce carbon emissions. Obtained EPA waiver to blend 7.5% with all US gasoline. Currently developing patented Hydrogen /Oxygen Downhole Steam Generator to vaporize and pressurize "stranded" light oil and gas after water flood in old plugged-out "giant" light oil and gas fields after water flood in US. My favorite development has been to feedlot 90 day young female Spanish Goats on Alfalfa/Milo pellets and selling first delicious first class Cabrito vacuum packaged special cuts of heart healthy meat developed with assistance of Texas A&M Ag. dept. Sold through numerous restaurants, supermarkets and personal orders throughout West Texas from Uvalde to El Paso.
I developed and designed the first skid mounted Methanol Plant to convert Natural Gas to Methanol to eliminate necessity of pipelines. Subsequently obtained exclusive world wide license for catalyst and process to produce Octamix, a mixed alcohol of C1-C8 mixed alcohols produced from natural gas in the field to provide octane and reduce carbon in gasoline and diesel using small portable Octamix plants in the field. Using General Motor's lobbyist in DC obtained an EPA fuel waiver to blend 7.5% Octamix in specially designed gasoline fuels in US.
All Legal Matters of Oil and Gas included Take over of operations from all Operators financed by Cominco. Untangled legal problems and cleared title to large Upper Morrow !0M acre discovery in Lipscomp Co,, TX called Sturant Ranch. Later help sell to Devon.
Leased approximately 3000 plugged out acreage in old Lefors Basin, Lefors, Texas, Raised capital and Drilled 10 oil and high Btu gas well with high water cuts. One of the first to u Hughes downdhole submersible pumps to produce high volumes of fluids of oil and water. Complete at 3000' well to produce 161 bbl/d with 300 bbl of water. Bust beginning earlt70's, had to sell out when Continental straddle plant unable to sell any more residue natural gas to pipelines due to lack of demand. Formed The Texas Methanol Corporation to build skid mounted /portable plants to produce natural gas for conversion to atmospheric liquid Methanol which avoided need for pipelines to move residue.
