About Glori Energy

Glori Energy, formerly Glori Oil, works with oil producers to install the AERO System (Activated Environment for the Recovery of Oil) into existing production infrastructure to increase oil recovery. Glori's AERO System enhances production from waterflooded fields by stimulating a reservoir's naturally occurring microbes to improve water sweep and oil mobility. Waterflood technology injects water into reservoirs to release additional quantities of oil that were unrecoverable during primary recovery. Conventional waterflooding only extracts a fraction of all discovered oil, leaving the majority underground. Glori's AERO System provides a new, viable option to recover this trapped oil with minimal new footprint or investment.
