Glori, headquartered in Houston, Texas, USA, partners with oil producers to significantly increase their oil production through the deployment of its AERO™ (Activated Environment for Recovery of Oil) System.
The system makes use of existing non-potable water sources, optimising the water quality to activate and sustain the indigenous reservoir microbial life with the desired metabolic activities to enhance the oil recovery process. The AERO™ System provides a new, viable option to recover previously trapped oil with minimal new footprint or investment.
