Get On Our CEO's List

The Week Everything Changed

From: Riggs Eckelberry

Good morning!

This fuzzy picture was taken on our biggest milestone to date!

Signing Gulf Energy Purchase Order

The photo was taken in Muscat, the capital of Oman, on 20 October.

It shows Yasser Al Barami, Chief Commercial Officer of Gulf Energy as he signs a $1.4 million purchase order for a commercial-scale CLEAN-FRAC™ system.

Sitting next to him is Bill Charneski, President of OriginOil Oil & Gas, who personally negotiated the transaction.

Why is this huge?

Well, it was only five months ago that we showcased our first demonstration CLEAN-FRAC system in Delta, Colorado.

And here we are, with our first seven-figure sale. That is record time for a new player in this industry!

How did this happen?

The Gulf Energy team is dynamic and fast-moving. There’s good reason why they have become a nearly half-billion dollar company in less than ten years.

And yes, new environmental regulations in place in Oman and throughout the Arabian peninsula are driving high demand for new, efficient solutions.

Finally, Bill Charneski did a great job developing trust and partnership with Gulf Energy since his first trip to the Arabian Peninsula in January.

But this also illustrates our business strategy.

Back in the dot-com days, we learned to focus on the enthusiasts, and ignore the conservatives and the skeptics.

These people will only buy after everyone else has!

That’s why we categorically refuse to go after opportunities that require us to be a long-established company with decades of credentials!

(You would be amazed how often we are handed these “opportunities”…)

So, we go with the early adopters. 

A HUGE thank you to Hilal Al Busaidy, Yasser Al Barami, Abdullah Al Ismaili and Mohammed Al Farsi of the Gulf Energy team, you are true early adopters!

In Yasser’s own words, “you cannot ride the big wave unless you are already in the sea — we do not like watching from the beach”. That’s a perfect partner!

Are you an early adopter?

We’re on our way with early adopters in the Middle East, East Asia and North America — are you one of them?

If so, please click here and we will get you started right away.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
