Pilot Pacific Technology

Pilot Pacific Pte Ltd, wholly-owned subsidiary of Pacific Hunt Energy, owns the exclusive license to Pilot's specialized and proprietary gas processing technologies for use in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The suite includes proprietary CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes, specialized patented or patent-pending process technologies for gas processing in high CO2 and unconventional gas streams and methodologies to provide producers a very economical and efficient recovery operation. 


What is CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)?

Pilot CO2 EOR is an advanced technology capable of increasing the amount of oil extracted from CO2 flooded oil fields by up to 15%.

Industry researchers believe that there will be strong global growth in the utilization of EOR technologies over the coming decade driven by high oil & gas prices and ageing oil fields. This will present significant growth opportunities for EOR companies and we will be able to leverage on this growth with our licensed Pilot EOR technologies.



Pilot Energy Solutions, LLC, has successfully completed the application of Pilot gas processing technology on 4 operating CO2 flood (3 in the U.S.A and 1 in Canada) and has 3 more upcoming projects in the pipeline. Clients of Pilot Energy Solutions, LLC includes Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Kinder Morgan, Great Western Drilling Company and Cenovus Energy.
