Cold Bore Technology closes USD14m financing

Jul 29, 2021

Submitted Existing investors include the Rice Investment Group (RIG), a USD200 million multi-strategy, energy sector investment fund. Cold Bore is leading a major shift in the completions (fracking) industry towards safer, more autonomous operations by providing oil & gas companies (operators) with a centralised digital platform called SmartPAD. SmartPAD is an end-to-end, fully integrated software and hardware platform designed to collect, analyse, and report data which would otherwise be under-utilised. Better utilisation of this data unlocks operators’ ability to make step-change improvements across all key performance indicators. SmartPAD deployments are on pace to exceed 100 per cent year-on-year growth in 2021, as more and more operators recognise Cold Bore as a key enabler for keeping workers safe and meeting heightened ESG commitments. Results from a recent SmartPAD implementation with Hibernia Resources, saw the Permian-based producer able to reduce the duration of their completions program by 15 days (27 per cent), with commensurate reductions in cost and emissions. Along with this investment from bp ventures, bp will be deploying Cold Bore’s SmartPAD in bpx energy’s US onshore operations. The technology will support bpx’s efforts to continuously improve its operations. “The oil & gas industry has realised that technological innovation is key to meeting growing calls for reduced emissions and improved returns. Cold Bore is proud to be playing a leadership role in the future of oil & gas operations,” says Brett Chell, Co-founder & President at Cold Bore Technology. “As we scale to meet incredible demand, we’re excited to have a strong strategic partner in bp, a forward-thinking international energy company, and to play a part in helping bp reach its carbon and operational targets. We believe the caliber of our customers and investors demonstrates the market opportunity before us. The future of the oil & gas industry is autonomous operations,” Brett adds. CBGF CEO, George Rossolatos says, “We are proud to back Brett and the Cold Bore team alongside bp ventures as part of our first investment in an Alberta-based company and we are excited to work with other entrepreneurs in the province!”
