#840 355 - 4th Ave. S.W
Calgary, Alberta, T2P 0J1
Our northeast location in Calgary will be used exclusively as a research and development centre to focus on engineering custom chemistry for Proflux.
Oilflow Solutions, the developer and provider of technology for heavy oil viscosity reduction, declared the appointment of Fred Meyer as Chief Executive Officer.
Meyer was previously the VP Sales and Marketing with a midsized Calgary based international service company. He has 31 years experience in the oil and gas industry, including 27 years with a major international service company which included assignments in Eastern and Western Canada as well as several assignments in Africa and South America.

Meyer brings to Oilflow Solutions valuable insight and experience within the Calgary E&P community.
Working with clients such as Husky, Canadian Natural Resources and Shell, Oilflow Solutions has developed a range of innovative and environmentally friendly products for the extraction of heavy oil.
Proflux has been boosting production from underperforming heavy oil wells across Alberta and Saskatchewan since 2008. It is also effective in extending the production life of steam-stimulated wells.
In his new position Meyer will lead the company's growth in Canada and world-wide.
"This unique and exciting technology is already delivering significant value to our customers, frequently doubling or tripling production," said Meyer. "There is huge potential for future growth of this technology in the Canadian heavy oil market."
Co-founder and previous CEO Mike Crabtree will take up a new position as President of Oilflow Solutions with specific responsibility for product development and international business.

Tucked away in a laboratory in an unprepossessing light industrial area in northeast Calgary, Oilflow Solutions Canada scientists are hard at work on what they believe is a game-changing technology for enhanced heavy oil recovery.
If they are successful, the patented Terraflux formulation could be more effective than a waterflood in increasing reservoir recovery rates, saving operators both time and money.
Using industry standard computer simulators, the scientists have been testing the product and performance in the lab, developing the reservoir physics to make it all work, says Phil Fletcher, the company's technical director.
While the product has yet to be field-tested, results from the initial simulations have been promising. "We have done a head-to-head comparison with a waterflood and we have used one with the Terraflux formulation and what we are seeing is a 20% increase in recovery but in a shorter time," he says.
"This is a case of more oil in less time with essentially less use of chemicals." And if an operator can produce the same amount of oil with less water, there also will be energy savings.
