• Initiates environmentally friendly CBM well water handling pilot
UPTON, WY, Oct. 21, 2009 -- Big Cat Energy Corporation, a leading supplier of water handling technology and services to the coalbed methane industry ("CBM"), is pleased to announce that it has commenced installation of its Aquifer Recharge Injection ("ARID™") system on a pilot well drilling project for a major CBM operator. Big Cat is installing 2 ARID systems near Gillette, Wyoming for this operator, with the potential installation of ARID Systems in 3 additional wells this calendar year.
"We are very encouraged by the acceptance of the ARID system as the most environmentally friendly and cost effective water handling solution for the CBM industry," said Tim Barritt, President and CEO of Big Cat Energy. "Responsible CBM operators are recognizing the significant time and cost savings that they can achieve when implementing Big Cat's ARID system on CBM wells," added Barritt.
Big Cat Energy has implemented its ARID System on numerous production wells for various CBM operators in the Powder River Basin. The CBM industry is now starting to recognize the value of the ARID System for low cost, environmentally friendly, produced water management. CBM companies are seeing a large per barrel cost savings using the ARID process and at the same time witnessed the water conservation that is achieved for landowners.
