WellDog and Big Cat Energy (OTCBB:BCTE.ob) have signed an agreement under which WellDog will distribute Big Cat’s coalbed methane fluid management business line outside of the United States. 

"WellDog is a technical leader in the industry and has spent enormous effort building relationships with CBM producers around the world,” said Tim Barritt, president and CEO of Big Cat. “We’re pleased to see that our business line will enjoy the benefit of those efforts." 

The distribution agreement covers business lines based on Big Cat’s downhole water/gas separation and re-injection technology, called the Aquifer Recharge Injection Device (ARID). The ARID was developed in response to produced water challenges that occurred during initial development of coalbed methane in the Powder River basin of Wyoming. While the technology was not available during the initial phases of development, it is now increasingly being adopted by operators in that basin. 

"We’re excited to be able to offer Big Cat’s technical solution that completely avoids surface water production for most CBM wells,” said John M. Pope, Ph.D., president and CEO of WellDog, and past member of the governor-appointed CBM Water Use Task Force. “Water production was the primary challenge in the Powder River basin. As the many emerging CBM developments around the world move to production phase, water management will become their primary challenge, too.” 

WellDog is launching their “WaterFree CSG” and “WaterFree Drainage” business lines for coalbed methane and coal mining customers, respectively, based on the ARID technology.
