Success at Eavor's New Mexico project triggers follow-on strategic investments

CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eavor Technologies Inc. ("Eavor"), a leader in globally scalable geothermal technology, is pleased to announce the successful completion of its next generation geothermal demonstration project in New Mexico, USA: Eavor-Deeptm.

Beginning in August and concluding in December of last year, after having drilled a two-leg multilateral well down to 18,000' TVD and ~250°C, Eavor met its objectives, including achieving technical milestones which have drawn a follow-on investment of $10 million CAD from bp Ventures ("bp Ventures").

These milestones were a combination of technical and operational measures and markers including depth, temperature, bit-life and rate of penetration in granite rock.

Several other objectives were reached including:

Helmerich & Payne, Inc. ("H&P") has also added to its 2021 equity investment, bringing its total to $10.2 million CAD, building on the companies' ongoing collaborative efforts to further advance state of the art drilling technologies.

Mark Hodder, VP Drilling at Eavor, stated that: "The opportunity to confront this level of technical drilling challenges is rare. Our successes at Eavor-Deeptm are credited to the talents, commitment and passion of the combined teams of Eavor and H&P."

Combined with the proof of concept demonstrated at the Derek Riddell Eavor-Litetm Demonstration Facility near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada in 2019, the milestones reached at Eavor-Deeptm in 2022 have validated all the key elements required to construct and operate commercial Eavor-Loops.

Matt Toews, CTO at Eavor, stated that: "The goals for our technology include not only reaching sub US$60 per megawatt-hour costs, but to enable widespread global scalability. The progress made in New Mexico is a critical step in this endeavor, and alongside our partners we will continue this process of innovation and iteration."

About Eavor Technologies Inc.

Eavor (pronounced "Ever") is a technology-based energy company led by a team dedicated to creating a clean, reliable, and affordable energy future on a global scale. Eavor's solution (Eavor-Loop®) represents the world's first truly scalable form of clean, dispatchable, baseload capable, and flexible power. Eavor achieves this by mitigating or eliminating many of the issues that have traditionally hindered geothermal energy. Eavor instead circulates a benign working fluid that is completely isolated from the environment in a closed-loop, through a massive subsurface radiator. This radiator simply collects heat from the natural geothermal gradient of the Earth via conduction. Eavor has been supported by equity investments made by several leading global energy producers, investors, developers, and venture capital funds including Vickers Venture Partners, bp Ventures, BDC Capital, Temasek, Chevron Technology Ventures, BHP Ventures, Helmerich & Payne, Precision Drilling and Chubu Electric Power. info@eavor.com
